Couple attacked on Hazyview game farm

Johannesburg - A couple was attacked by five men who thought they had rhino horn in their possession, an Mpumalanga DA councillor said on Wednesday.

The attack took place in their home on their game farm, north of Hazyview, near the Kruger National Park, Ken Robertson said.

"On Monday night two people were brutally attacked by no less than five men who were under the impression that they had rhino horn in safekeeping on their property."

David Powrie was stabbed 12 times and his wife Loma twice. Both were in hospital.

David is the Lowveld representative of the Game Rangers Association of Africa.

Mpumalanga police spokesperson Brigadier Selvy Mohlala was unable to confirm the attack.

Apart from attempted murder they might just be rhino killers as well.

This country is being hijacked by criminals. Maybe government officials will start doing something about it if they are raped, robbed and murdered every second day of the week. What do you think?

"Mpumalanga police spokesperson Brigadier Selvy Mohlala was unable to confirm the attack.". Why the fook not? Catch these bastards and shoot them.

The Hazyview police are notorious for being not only useless but extremely corrupt. Don't expect any arrests or prosecutions here.

Time to terminate those caught. The consequence must be equal to the crime. Stop pussyfooting around

What utter rubbish, this incident was 40km away from Hazyview in a private game reserve. Leave the town of Hazyview out of the report. Get your facts straight news24!

Don't let the facts get in the way of what actually happened. Another example of bad reporting.
