Horrific farm murder in Nelspruit
Annemarie Botha (64) and her mentally disabled son, Ruan (30), were brutally murdered on a farm outside of Nelspruit, Mpumalanga
Annemarie’s husband returned to the farm house after patrolling to find the house plundered and the bodies of his wife and son in the living room. The attackers cut their way through a fence in the yard before entering the home and attacking the family.
According to a community security group member, it was clear that both Annemarie and Ruan fought back against the attackers in an attempt to protect themselves. From the positions of their bodies, it seemed like Ruan was trying to shield his mother from the attack.
Annemarie was a teacher at a nearby Christian School.
So far no arrests have been made.
