An elderly couple from Reivilo near Vryburg in the North West were brutally attacked and the man burned with boiling water during a farm attack just outside town.
Ian Cameron of AfriForum says on Twitter that the woman managed to call for help, but her husband was found in a serious condition in a shower.
This why @afriforum and @Saai_org neighbourhood watches and farm watches will patrol regardless of ridiculous threats by politicians. We must take responsibility for our own safety! #SouthAfrica https://t.co/7gI51bhHMk— Ian Cameron (@IanCameron23) June 6, 2020
The attackers apparently threw boiling water on the man’s back.
According to information from security groups on social media, the suspects, who fled on a Nissan X Trail, were last seen outside Schweizer-Reneke at the smallholdings near Bloemhof Road.
They left the stolen vehicle there and fled on foot.
The gunmen were still young and one was wearing a blue jacket and the other was wearing a yellow jacket when they were last seen. It was not certain what the third suspect was wearing.
