Well-known Umvoti farmer shot and killed

2018-10-24 06:00

WELL-KNOWN Umvoti farmer Clive Robertson was tragically killed in what appears to have been a botched hijacking in Estcourt last Saturday morning.

Clive, who bred and dealt with cattle, was sitting in his bakkie outside the vet in Estcourt, reading a newspaper, when an unknown armed man jumped in and told him to drive towards the township.

There was a group of people at the bottom of the road, and when they saw the vehicle careening towards them and heard gunshots, they scattered.

The bakkie went into a ditch and the attacker ran away. As members of the crowd ran to help, shots were fired at them and they pulled back.

Clive was a highly reputable cattle dealer and well-known equestrian; a man dedicated to his family.

The Greytown Gazette extends its deepest sympathy to Nola and the family.

At the time of going to press, an intensive manhunt was under way for the killer.
