Farm attackers strangled a man with a scarf and hacked his genitals with a sharp object.
A bloodied Timothy Rademeyer, 51, and his partner, Dirkie Voges, 61, were found on their farm in the Welbekend area near Bapsfontein on Wednesday.
Voges could walk up to the farm road and call for help.
Candice Allison, a local paramedic, was one of the first people to rush to the farmhouse to help the couple.
Her cousin, Ian Jackson, was driving past the couple’s farm around 7:30 a.m. when he saw the bloodied Voges along the road.
He immediately rushed to Allison about 3 km and told her to help urgently.
A bloody scene greeted Allison.
A scarf with which the attackers strangled Rademeyer was so tightly knit that she had to cut it loose. One of his ribs was also presumably broken.
“He had ugly cuts to his head and arms. His private parts were also cut, ”says Allison.
I just know my dad got hurt a lot.<b
