Bloemfontein - Organised agriculture has reacted with anger to the slaying of yet another elderly Free State farming couple, saying it confirms that farmers are among the groups most at risk of murder in South Africa.
Jan Greyling, 67, and his wife Johanna, 63, were found dead in their homestead on Florida Farm in the Trompsburg district on Monday afternoon.
Workers became suspicious when neither came out of the house during the day, and called the police.
Southern Free State area commissioner Baile Motswenyane said on Tuesday that Greyling was found with a bullet wound in the head and "multiple wounds".
Mrs Greyling was found in a chair in a bedroom with two bullet wounds behind the left ear.
Motswenyane said it was possible guns were stolen from a safe which was found open in the bedroom.
