Johannesburg - A man was shot and killed at the Bundu Estate near White River, Mpumalanga police said on Wednesday.

Clive Anthony Bowers, 60, was murdered at his house on Tuesday, said police spokesperson Selvy Mohlala.

"According to information, the man was asleep with his companion when suddenly they heard some noise in the house," said Mohlala.

The couple then saw a man in the house, but the police say there might have been more robbers.
