Farm manager tortured then shot through the head
Dullstroom, South Africa – Farm manager Sarel Janse van Rensburg, 75, farm Froggy Pond, Tonteldoos outside Dullstroom, Limpopo Sept 18 2014, Tortured while tied up, then shot dead.

The murdered man’s daughter Claudine van Wyk said her father was stabbed with a knife in his chest and then he was shot dead with a bullet into his head.

“He would have celebrated his 76th birthday in November,’ his daughter told Beeld.

She said the police had to restrain her from seeing her dad when she rushed to the farm: ‘his head is one big mess’, she said.

SAPS colonel Ronél Otto said Mr Janse van Rensburg was working on the farm at 11am by himself.

Two black males showed up asking for jobs and water.

The widower went into the house to fetch water and was attacked inside the homestead, where he lived alone.

Afriforum spokesman Ian Cameron said ‘our information is that Mr Janse van Rensburg was first beaten with a steel bar before he was tied up with his own shoe-laces. “When he was tied up, they stabbed him in the chest with a knife – and then shot him dead by firing a bullet through his head.’


Their only loot was a tin with cash and some portable household goods.

The farm workers came across his body – workers and neighbours all reported that they had seen two black men run away through the fields.

The police were called and the two males, 21 and 25, were arrested with the money-tin in their possession.

One man was recently released on bail for an earlier house-robbery said Otto.

The farm manager’s brother Johan, 77 and his sister in law Gloudien 62, were also murdered two years ago in June 2012 on their farm near Baltimore.

The farm manager is the fifth farm murder in Limpopo since July 2014.
