On Tuesday 24 November 2020, Mpozana Khumalo was tending to cattle and sheep at Muden near Greytown when he was attacked by two men. The Eighty-year-old black farmer was helping his son Robert on their farm when the attackers assaulted him, tied him to a tree and shot him without mercy.

Muden is a township on the Mooi River, 24 km northwest of Greytown and 38 km south-east of Weenen in the KwaZulu Natal Province. It was established by the missionary Reverend Heinrich Röttcher and named after Müden in Hanover, Germany

Mpozana spent his entire life working with livestock and sadly passed away on Friday 27 November after surgery to his chest for the gunshot wound.

The family of 80-year-old Mpozana Khumalo are struggling to come to terms with his death.

According to reports on social media, he was a humble gentleman who went out of his way to help others. His son Robert Khumalo also went the extra mile time and time again assisting people in need especially during the COVID 19 lockdown.

“We as a community at large in Mooi River are saddened and shocked at this terrible incident. Hamba Kahle Mkhulu. May his soul Rest in Peace” – said Angus Williamson a farmer in the area.
