He said Christo Redelinghuys (60) and his daughter Retha went outside to lock their gate. “When they went back to the house, they noticed three armed men standing next to the house.”

When Redelinghuys asked what they wanted, without answering him, they shot him dead. “The daughter was left unharmed.”

The police were summoned and reacted swiftly to the scene. A manhunt and investigations ensued.

“At this stage the motive is not clear, because there was no indication of any items stolen from the house but the ongoing police investigations will tell.”
