THE hunt is on for a gang of men linked to the Hluhluwe farm attack which left a 63-year-old man dead.

Terence Rizzoto was gunned down when the men stormed into his home on Tuesday night.

Transport, Community Safety and ­Liaison MEC Willies Mchunu condemned the murder.

“I am deeply shocked by this farm ­attack. I find it to be totally abhorrent and inhumane. We condemn it and we will follow it until there is an arrest and conviction. I am assured that members of the police are working around the clock to ensure that those who are ­responsible for this cold-blooded ­murder and ­attack are brought to justice as soon as possible,” he said.

Mchunu reiterated his concerns that incidents like these tended to ­undermine food security and business confidence in the province.

He urged anyone with information to come forward.
