Cape Town - Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging leader Eugene Terre'Blanche was murdered on his Ventersdorp farm in the North West on Saturday evening.

According to the AWB's André Visagie, Terre'Blanche was beaten to death with pipes and pangas on his farm Villanna (meaning 'the home of Anna'). 

His body was found at about 18:00. According to a report on Fromtheold.com, Terre'Blanche was apparently still alive when police got to him but later died.

He was asleep at the time of the attack.

Police found a panga and knobkerrie next to Terre'Blanche.

Visagie said Terre'Blanche was beaten so badly "he didn't look like Eugene anymore".

The AWB leader was alone on the farm at the time of the attack.

Visagie said that Terre'Blanche's only security were his dogs which were "neutralised".

A 16-year-old and 21-year-old who apparently worked for Terre'Blanche were arrested, police spokesperson Captain Adéle Myburgh said.

The two allegedly attacked the 69-year-old far-right wing leader because they were not paid for work they did.
