A man is still in critical condition at a hospital in Mpumalanga after an attack on him, his wife and the couple’s son on their farm outside Nelspruit. This is one of many farm attacks in the month of October.
Brown was stabbed in the face with an ax when four suspects gained access to the family’s farmhouse on the Uitkyk Road near Mabalel at around 2 am.
Gryvenstein said the couple is believed to be in their 70s.
Tommy was shot in the process. The attacker was also wounded. Police found the wounded assailant’s body about 300 meters from the scene where he died.
According to Gryvenstein, Martie has since been discharged from a hospital. Tommy was transferred to a state hospital as he did not belong to medical aid. Not only was he shot in the leg but he also sustained a skull fracture in the incident.
No one has been arrested in connection with the incident, Gryvenstein says. If you have any information regarding this attack, please contact your nearest police station.
