After our earlier report of an elderly farm victim, attacked with knife on the neck, another brutal attack has occurred in Limpopo.
The bloody menace of hostile farm attacks in South Africa, could lead the victims to resort to self defence as government seems not to be doing enough to curb the atrocity.
An elderly couple and their family were attacked and tied up on their farm in Letsitele just outside Tzaneen on Friday by two men who robbed them of their belongings, Limpopo police said.
The two men allegedly attacked the couple, aged 76 and 78, around 14:00 at their home on a plot in the Taganashoek area while they were with their family members, Lt-Col Moatshe Ngoepe said.
“The two suspects attacked them with sharp instruments, demanded money, searched the house, stabbed the old lady, hit the old man with a hard object and tied them on both legs and arms before they disappeared with their cellphones and car keys,” Ngoepe said.
The victims were taken to a nearby hospital for further medical treatment. No arrests have yet been made.
