PRETORIA – Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development, Thoko Didiza, on Saturday said she has learnt with shock the “brutal” killing of another young farmer in the province of Free State.
It is alleged that Tebogo Machakela was shot in the head by a group of assailants.
Machaka’s brutal killing comes after the murder of another young farmer Brendin Horner in Free State.
“ The death of Mr Tebogo Machakela is not only a great loss to his family and friends but to the agricultural sector as a whole,” said Didiza.
She appealed to community members who may have witnessed the” senseless killing” of the young farmer to assist the police with information.
“In the same light I call upon the police to leave no stone unturned in making sure that culprits are put behind bars,” she said.
Didiza sent her “sincere and heartfelt condolences” to the Machakela family, friends and colleagues of Tebogo.
