A farm murder took place on Monday 5 June 2023, in the Perdekop area just outside of Standerton, in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa.
The farmer Josef Payne (71) was found at 11:00 after a farm worker became concerned that he had not come out of the home.
The farm worker then went to the nieghbour for assistance.
Mr. Payne was found with serious a abdomen wound and his hands were tied.
What exactly transpired is unclear at this stage but it seems that the attackers searched the home.
