Three men have been arrested in connection with the death of a 24-year-old man in Luka outside Rustenburg, North West police said on Sunday.

The three men, aged 68 and 76 and believed to be farmers, allegedly beat the man to death on Thursday, Lt-Col Pelonomi Makau said.

The Phokeng stock theft unit attended to a complaint of stock theft at the Mogono section cattle post in Luka near Phokeng, she said.

“On their arrival, they found the 24-year-old deceased still unconscious after being severely beaten lying inside one of the suspects’ vehicle with body injuries and his hands tied. He passed away at the clinic.”

The three men were allegedly linked to the murder and arrested. They were expected to appear in the Bafokeng Magistrate’s Court in Tlhabane on Monday.
