Johannesburg - Police were searching on Monday for five men who assaulted and robbed a woman farmer outside King William's Town at the weekend, Eastern Cape police said.

The group entered her farmhouse in Kei Road on Sunday morning and held her at knife and gunpoint, said Captain Ernest Sigobe.

The 45-year-old woman was assaulted and tied up with her worker.

The gang took a pistol, two cellphones and a bakkie, and fled.

Police later found the vehicle abandoned on the R65 near Bhisho.

    It's starting to look like farming is a very high risk job.

      Since 1994, it has become one of the most high risk jobs in RSA.

      Farming has been a high risk job for the farm workers since the day Jan van Riebbeck dumped on our shores. The treatment of the farm workers is disgusting and I wouldn't be surprised if the farm worker planned all this. Treat people with respect and they'll do the same to you but if you treat them like rubbish you'll get the same medicine.

    Which is exactly what they want, drive the farmers off their land so the skollies can try to claim the land...

      True, this is intimidation, plain and clear!

    Lets thank the Almighty that their lives were spared. No asset worth more that life. We are all affected by crime irrespectively. Also there is no business without risks. Only when our government could eradicate corruption, to ensure proper distribution of resources, then safety and security will be easily addressed. Until then, we all have tosurvive on prayer, alarm systems and panic buttons. Not all Blacks want Afrikaners or farmersout ot SA. There is a huge number of generous, kind and committed Afrikaners who are prepared to be part of making our country better.

      If I may be so bold, where in the article does it say that a) the attackers were black and b) that the farmer was Afrikaans-speaking? A huge percentage of Eastern Cape farmers are actually English mother-tongue speakers......

      I agree!

  • Rodreck Muringani - 2012-02-27 16:01

    Aspiring to be farmer, thinking twice.....

  • kasamkelo - 2012-02-27 16:23

    Well..... the thugs are Coloured ofcos.

    Jip looking more and more like the future of farmers going the same way as they did in Zim. Actually this has been going on for a long time in SA. tactics just slightly different!

  • Shirley - 2012-02-27 16:41

    Another farm attack-nothing done. Yet when people want to defend themselves they are front page news for being racists. This is shameful and the ammount of attention and help it receives from powers that be is even MORE shameful!

      Try and be original, bright spark! Only thing your intellect can do is copy.

      Umm, do you have the correct news item you are responding to???

    Let me ask if I've read this correctly?? 5 Men armed with guns and knives attack a unarmed 45 year old woman. And the song goes:- The lyrics of the song (in Zulu) are translated as follows: (the cowards are scared) (shoot shoot) (shoot shoot) (the cowards are scared) (shoot shoot ) (shoot shoot) (shoot the Boer) (shoot shoot) (shoot the Boer) (shoot shoot) (shoot the Boer) (shoot shoot) (shoot the Boer) (shoot shoot
