Two Limpopo farmers were killed near Lephalale and Tzaneen over the weekend, police said on Monday.

Paul Dan, 49, was killed in a shootout with three men who broke into his house on the Constantia Product Farm in Letsitele, east of Tzaneen on Friday night, Superintendent Ronel Otto said in a statement.

Dan was shot in the chest, neck, arm and back. His son found his body on Saturday. His attackers fled the scene with several household items. One of the men was found hiding near the Letaba River with a gunshot wound in his left armpit. He was currently in hospital under police guard.

In the second attack, Ettiene Cammaerts, 61, of the farm Corn Hall in the Lephalale area was found murdered on Friday.

“His hands and feet were bound and it would seem as if his throat was cut with a sharp instrument.”

He left his home around noon to take his workers to their homes. When he didn’t return, his wife Ingrid and neighbours started searching.

No arrests had been made. – Sapa
