Farmworkers kill man with oranges

Johannesburg - Two men have been arrested after they allegedly assaulted a farmworker with oranges until he died on a farm outside Tzaneen, Limpopo police said on Wednesday.

The men, aged 27 and 30, were taken into custody on Tuesday, said Lieutenant Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.

"Babanto Chauke, 38, and two men had a quarrel, the two [allegedly] started throwing loose oranges at him until he died."

The men were Chauke's colleagues at Lakota Farm. They would appear in the Tzaneen Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, Ngoepe said.
