Free State farmer buried in shallow grave


524

Bloemfontein - A Free State farmer was buried in a shallow grave after being attacked on his Reitz farm on Monday, said Free State police.

Sergeant Mmako Mophireng said police were alerted by his son when he became suspicious after a stranger answered one of his telephone calls to his parent's home.

Police arrived to find two women tied up, but no sign of the farmer.

It was in a search of the farmyard that they discovered the shallow grave in which the farmer's body was buried.

Mophireng said two people had since been arrested at an informal settlement in Reitz. One of them apparently worked on the farm a few days ago.

He said the two women were taken to the Bethlehem hospital.
