In case you didn’t know, a “panga” is an African machete used for hacking through the three Ws: wood, wildlife and white people.
A farm attack took place on the night of Tuesday 12 February 2019, at 22:00 in Bean se Bos in Patensie. A couple in their fifties, Stewart and Jackie, were attacked outside their home by two panga wielding savages when they arrived at the house. Stewart was assaulted and hacked on his head by panga strikes by one of the attackers and was then also stabbed by the other one. The attackers then forced their way into the home.
The attackers fled with cash, cell phones. Stewart was taken for medical treatment. Smhart, SAPS and Safety structures were summoned to assist. With the help of above and a Farmcom drone a search was launched for the suspects but no arrests have been made yet.
