Farm attack took place in Zeerust on 23 March 2019, at about 18H00. Mr and Mrs Scheepers were attacked by two men, one of which was a farm worker, about 20 km outside Zeerust on their farm. One of the workers started working on the farm on 8 January 2019. He had been absent due to an illness but arrived there and insisted on his wage. It’s not the end of the month. The attack happened about 500 meters from home where he attacked them with a broken beer bottle.
SAPS was contacted and arrived 1 hour 45 minutes later. The security people were there within minutes.
The SAPS went with Mrs Scheepers to a shebeen where the worker and his accomplice were arrested. At the police station, Mrs Scheepers had to first pay the wages of the worker who attacked them. The SAPS didn’t want to take no for an answer.
Two underage children were in the house at the time of the incident.
