Olifantshoek farm murder must be prioritized

18 August 2022

Note to Editors: Please find attached soundbites in English & Afrikaans from Willie Aucamp, MP.

The murder of Bets Olivier and the attack on her husband, Andrew, on their farm near Olifantshoek in the Northern Cape, must be prioritised by the South African Police Service (SAPS) in the same way that the Krugersdorp gang rape is being dealt with.

After meeting Andrew and his family yesterday to convey the Party’s deepest sympathies in person, I was shocked by the brutality of the deep wounds that had been inflicted on his wrists and ankles, and the trauma that has been imposed on him and his entire family following the loss of a wife and mother. See pic here.

The attack on the Oliviers has once again highlighted the vulnerability of farmers as well as the under-resourcing of the police and the critical need, as consistently raised by the DA, to get rural safety units up and running in order to protect rural communities.
