Johannesburg – A 65-year-old woman who was shot three times in a farm attack in which her husband was killed, is fighting for her life in a Polokwane hospital.
Beeld reported that doctors said Gloudien van Rensburg would probably be paralysed if she survived.
She was shot as she lay sleeping next to her husband, Johan van Rensburg, 77, on their game farm Cosmopolite near the Botswana border.
Her husband was shot dead by the four men who cut the electric fence and bent back burglar bars in the bathroom to get into the house.
The couple were attacked early on Wednesday morning. American tourists, who had come to hunt on the farm, were woken up by the shots and raised the alarm.
The Americans were apparently too shocked to talk to reporters.
Firearms were stolen from the house but the couple’s cellphones had not been taken.
They celebrated their 43rd wedding anniversary in January.
Afrikaner community in mourning over ongoing slaughter
As Censorbugbear has reported members of the Afrikaner community led by celebrities, such as Singer/Songwriter Steve Hofmyr, have been protesting against the brutal violence being inflicted on their three and a half million strong community.
