Six arrested for recent farm attacks

Members of the crime prevention team worked around the clock on Wednesday and finally tracked the six suspects to Schaumburg in Hartbeespoort and Keinfontein near Brits where they were arrested. A  .22 handgun was found in their possession.

The suspects are believed to be responsible for the shooting of well-known herbalist Hennie Eksteen on his farm in Skeerpoort on 29 June, as well as the shooting of a farmer, Dries Botha, on his farm at Klipkop near Brits and also the shooting of a farmer at Kleinfontein near Brits on the evening of 4 July 2017.

“Hartbeespoort police members, Sgt Walter Ngobeni, Const Enock Sejamoholo, Const Alfred Mpye,  Det/Const Donald Kgasi  and K9 member Const Temba arrested  the 6 farm attack suspects after working non-stop for the past two days. We want to thank them for excellent police work and their dedication in making the area safer,” said Hartbeespoort community policing forum spokesperson, Romano van der Spuy.

Five of the suspects are undocumented Zimbabwean nationals and come from Schaumberg near Skeerpoort. They are currently in custody in Hartbeespoortdam police cells.

“Well done to these members . Excellent work. Your efforts are indeed appreciated.”
