“There have been 21 murders and 147 attacks in these past four months alone.” said Dianne Kohler Barnard in a debate to Parliament yesterday.
Kohler-Barnard said farm murders and attacks had increased during the national lockdown, claiming this was because police minister Bheki Cele had barred farm owners from conducting their own patrols.
The issue has come under sharp focus following the killing of a farming couple in the town of Newcastle in the province of KwaZulu-Natal this past weekend. Another farming family suffered a horrific killing in the Northern Cape town of Hartswater last month
