    Okay so now I am waiting for the Malema supporters to comment that the farm owner should be held responsible!!!

      @bloulig.brigadeer.3 - Forget the dead let's get Malema into the story? With this attitude SA's future is in trouble and elements like you need to be rehabilitated, the poor farm workers have lost their lives and all you think of is taking a jab at Malema. You will choke on your arrogance one of these days! What goes up must come down, usually the fall won't be pleasant.

      Yes lerato, what goes up must come down, good time for the ANC to step down now, thanks. However I must add that this article sadly lacks substance. Two people died, I get it, but what were the circumstances leading up to the tragedy? If we are going to have 3 paragraph articles for every person dying on our roads, we'll never get the juice on Juliarse.

      I HAVE to ask - why is this article entitled "Farm Workers" killed blah blah - why not - Two lives lost in accident or something to that effect - WHY are they pushing this farm button to get everyone worked up? I remember some lives were lost on the N1 and NEVER did they say - a doctor has died, or a pharmacist attendant or whatever!

    @Andrea this a breaking story just like any other, a detailed report usually follows soon. @anikenvader that because they were at work, how else would they know they are farmworkers. Same as when a farmer is killed, do you want to say a family was robbed and killed. Or you don't think they are important.
