Farm Attack: Fairview Wine and Cheese, Paarl Western Cape
"Last night, I endured a brutal farm attack here on my Fairview farm in Paarl. This morning, I decided to come straight from the hospital and stop by Fairview, to show my millennial counter-parts what real work commitment looks like, as on-going banter we have between us.
"In truth and in all seriousness, the attack was physically and emotionally painful. I was beaten up with a crow bar, have broken bones, was rolled up into a carpet and left for dead in my home. My escape is nothing short of miraculous, and I feel like I have come back from the dead. I am so grateful to be alive, and my heart goes out to all the people that have lost their family members in the ongoing farm attacks.
"I want it to be known that this attack was not politically divisive in any way, but that these were just 3 common gangsters motivated by their own self-interests. I believe in the values that this country was built on, and continue to hope for harmony and peace. I am now doubly motivated to come into work everyday, and will continue to ensure that I can contribute and try make even the smallest difference in my community."
From everyone here at Fairview, we are so glad to have you alive and back home!
