Smit’s farm attack investigation in advanced stage

Western Cape Community Safety MEC Albert Fritz said that following three incidents of farm attacks in the Winelands area over the last week they are in an advanced stage of investigations.

The most resent attack occurred last Sunday when Stefan Smit was shot and killed on his Louiesenhof Wine Estate.

A rural technical safety team was set up to handle any farm attacks.

EWN reported that Police say they are making progress with the investigation into Smit’s murder but no arrests have been made as yet.

Two arrests have been made in Durbanville on Friday in connection with the farm attack in Paarl in May.
