Previously Reported: 11 Oct 2017, Cape Town: The DA in the Western Cape has called for an increased police presence in the Koue Bokkeveld area near Ceres. This follows a brutal attack on a farmer in the area.
Wilhelm van der Merwe was tied up and stabbed multiple times by two unidentified men. Van der Merwe is in a critical condition in a Cape Town Hospital.
DA Constituency Head in the Witzenberg region, James Vos, the large area is serviced by only one police station and this is not enough:
“This attack clearly indicates that there is a total lack of rural safety policing units to adequately safeguard our agricultural sector against these onslaughts. Any attack against a farm worker, farmer or any person involved in the agricultural sector is unacceptable because these are the people that provide food for our nation. Therefore we need to implement rural safety units.”
