JOHANNESBURG - Community members of Majakaneng in the North West have barricaded roads with burning tyres following a shooting of a local man allegedly by a farmer.
It’s understood three men were stealing oranges from the farm when the owner shot at them, killing one instantly.
The other two managed to flee unharmed but the body of the victim has not been recovered.
The incident took place over a week ago.
Residents are allegedly pelting rocks at passing cars in both directions of the N4.
Community members are demanding the farmer to be arrested and threatening to burn his house.
This community member Collen Mahudu says the farmer has fled and they don’t know his whereabouts.
“The situation is very tense here in Majakaneng. The community members are angry and they have blocked roads, N4 to Rustenburg has been blocked. They went to the farmer's house and he was not at his house.
