A group of neighbouring farmers then rallied together andconfronted two men – Samuel Tjexa, 35 and Seun Tangasha, in his late 20s –about 8km from Biesiesbult.

The farmers allegedly assaulted Tjexa and Tangasha beforehanding them over to police.

Tjexa was admitted to Parys Provincial Hospital and Tangashato Pelonomi Hospital.
