Johannesburg - The decomposing body of a 70-year-old man was found on his farm in North West, police said on Thursday.

"The half-naked body of [Walter] Niedinder was discovered 40m away from his Brakfontein farm by his neighbours [on Wednesday]," Captain Amanda Funani said.

It was not clear when and how Niedinder was killed. The farm is in the Buffelshoek area, near Mafikeng.

It was believed Niedinder and a friend had an argument during the weekend.

"Niedinder's friend is still missing and his whereabouts are unknown."

The farmer's blue Mercedes Benz, a TV and a DVD player were missing. No arrests had been made.

Police were investigating cases of murder, vehicle theft, and house robbery.

    We will have to wait and see, but I'll put my money on a farm murder. (Could be wrong, but I doubt it)

    Well do what I do, shoot first ask questions later, I already got 3 dustbin men, a water meter reader and two post men in the back! Ha Ha but this is what this country has come to, if I walk in the street and another person starts walking to me, my hands already in my pocket. Sadly its kill or be killed. Shame, what a waste of a beautiful country.

      the problem in south Africa is that the people making comments here should have been at the Olympics - they keep jumping to conclusion - we might have won gold in 4 events.
