A farmer was violently beaten with a knobkerrie during a land invasion crisis. The invasion of commercial farm grazing is an ongoing problem in the Loteni area.
The horrific farm attack happened on Monday, November 21, in the uMgunggungdlovu/ Sisonke Districts, Impendle/ Kwa Sani Municipalities, between Lotheni and Underberg, KwaZulu-Natal.
Farmer Lynton Mclean was removing the suspect’s cattle off his farm. The suspect Duma, armed with a knobkerrie confronted him and without any warning began to beat him. Fortunately, one of Mclean’s horsemen heard the commotion and speedily intervened.
Had the farm worker not intervened, Mclean could have lost his life during the raging aggressive attack.
