Another white South African farmer brutally murdered

According to Schoeman, Strydom would have testified in court later this month, after recently catching a robber in a house on the neighbouring farm where his aunt, Martie Strydom, lives. The man was released on bail.

Schoeman said Strydom told him a week ago about how he was receiving strange calls. Each time he answered, the phone would be put down.

"About two months ago they broke into Johan's house and he then also reported a case of burglary."

SHOOT: Time for a response beyond complaints and rhetoric I'd say.

Potchefstroom - When guests arrived for a braai on Saturday on a farm near Potchefstroom, they discovered their host's body with a chain around his ankles.
The murderer presumably attacked 40-year-old Johan Strydom with an iron rod at his gate on Saturday at about 13:00, Lesego Metsi, North West police spokesperson said.
He was then tied to the back of his Mazda Drifter bakkie with a rope and dragged to his store room.
According to Metsi, the murderer then closed the store room's door and fled with the bakkie and Strydom's cellphone and wallet.
The bakkie was found deserted later on Saturday in Potchefstroom and a 21-year-old man was arrested.
He led the police to two other men, but at this stage they are not being connected with the murder. However, the same two men were arrested on Sunday morning after the police found some of Strydom's stolen property in their possession.
