Johannesburg - A 79-year-old man has been killed on a farm in Lephalale, Limpopo police said on Tuesday.

Koos Jonker was found dead on Monday in the small flat he rented at the farm, said police spokesperson Ronel Otto.

"He was found lying on the bathroom floor. His hands and feet were tied, and he had been assaulted on the head with a blunt object."

The rooms in the flat were ransacked.

There was a break in at the main farmhouse on Sunday evening.

"The family only realised in the morning, when they found a window forced open and some household goods, including a laptop and camera, missing."

Jonker's dark-green ex-military Willys Jeep with a Gauteng registration was stolen.

Otto said no one had been arrested and urged anyone with information to alert police.
