Hunt on for Farmer’s Killers (SA), Jan. 4

Musina — A police manhunt using helicopters and sniffer dogs is underway for the killers of an elderly farmer who was assaulted with spades at his farm near Alldays in Limpopo on Tuesday afternoon.

Captain Ailwei Mushavhanamadi said Dan Keyser, 79, died on his way to hospital and that his wife, Doreen, was receiving treatment for assault wounds.

“Two men arrived at their farm, Gresden, saying they needed water. Then they started assaulting them,” he said.
