The Minister of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development, Ms. Thoko Didiza, MP calls on the law enforcement agencies to arrest the killers of Mr. Werner Buchner who was fatally wounded during a robbery at his farm.

It has been reported that on Sunday (05/09/2021) at approximately 18h30 pm, three gun men entered Mr Buchner’s dairy farm Boslaagte, near Nanaga in the Sara Baartman District. It is alleged that Mr Buchner was shot at the back, while his son was also shot and his wife kicked and beaten. Both his son and wife were rushed to hospital where there are receiving medical attention.

“I call upon the police to live no stone unturned in apprehending perpetrators of this senseless and barbaric attack” said Minister Didiza

The Minister would like to thank the local farming community and all other role players who immediately responded when the call for help was made.

“I would like to send my heartfelt and deepest condolences to the Buchner family, friends, colleagues and the Alexandria farming community”
