Views : Fake cops torture farmer and his family

Heavily-armed, in police uniforms; eight men attacked and tied up Okkie Malherbe, a Mokopane farmer and his family and repeatedly shocked them with stun guns on their farm this week.

The men pulled plastic bags over Malherbe’s head and of his wife, Emmerentia, from the Olem agricultural concern on the farm Doelen.

Malherbe's son, WD, who was also in the farm during the attack said the attack lasted about two hours but it felt like forever as they faced a murder’s presence. Malherbe's granddaughter, Kaycee, 5, was even hysterical during the attack.


WD said he had come for supper on Tuesday evening at his father home when an Isuzu bakkie and a Toyota Corolla with a blue light on the roof, had stopped in front of the farmhouse. He said three of the attackers wore police uniforms while the rest were "neatly clothed, like detectives".

"We thought it was the police and then I opened the door. They pointed semi-automatic machine guns at me."

WD said the attackers told them they were police officers from Gauteng and were investigating illegal firearms.

His father asked to see identification and the men quickly waved about "a piece of paper and cards".

"We could see these weren't police IDs and said we were going to call the police. They then pulled on their Balaclavas."

The eight men attackers tied up WD, his father, stepmother, his sister, Zia and her daughter Kaycee after demanding money and keys to the safe.

"They told me to lie on my face on the sofa. We weren't allowed to speak and every now and then felt a firearm against the head," said WD.
WD said the attackers shocked all of them, except not Kaycee, several times with stun guns.

The men then took Malherbe (the father) to a nearby building from where the family ran the Limpopo Meat Packers business. He gave them the keys to the safe. They took his shoes, pulled a plastic bag over his head and took R120 000 cash.

They then forced him back to the house and took him and his wife to their bedroom. It was then that they pulled a plastic bag over his wife's head too.

"They were choked. I felt like I was going crazy when I heard that but I couldn't do anything," said WD."

Employees of the Malherbes who stayed in a flat near the main house, suspected something was wrong and activated an alarm.

"They fled when the alarm went off. They took my bakkie, but later left it on a farm road. My father and stepmother's cellphones were also stolen. We feel vulnerable, what should you do if people with police uniforms and a blue light stop near you? How should you know who you can trust?"

Provincial police spokesperson superintendent Ronel Otto said a special task team had been appointed to look for the attackers.
