Sudafrica. Incubo nel paeseA 78-year-old man was cruelly murdered and his 72-year-old wife tied up and assaulted in their house on a farm in the Philipstown district over the weekend.
Police spokesperson Mashay Gamieldien said Jakobus Cornelius Wartington and his wife, Anna Maria, were attacked in their house on the farm Disselskuil on Saturday night, between 20:00 and midnight.
According to the family member, Mrs Wartington said the robbers wanted money from her.
”She didn't have any money. She’s an elderly lady, why did they have to beat her like that?”
The couple have been living on the farm for the past three years. They are South African citizens, but formerly lived in Zimbabwe. After being forced to leave Zimbabwe they returned to South Africa.
