Farm killings: 'We're pointing fingers while millions go hungry'

Mlengana said stock theft was also a major concern.

“Stock theft has become a business‚ and there are clear indications of syndicate involvement. Incidences of stock thefts are rising at an alarming rate that affects livestock farmers’ livelihoods‚” the director-general said.

“Livestock farmers are concerned that those who have been arrested in connection with stock theft have not received appropriate punishment. My department encourages livestock farmers to report all incidences of stock theft to SAPS and brand their animals.

“We need to stop pointing fingers [at] one another with regards to the root causes for these acts of violence. Instead we must come with workable solutions that are within the laws of our country.”

Mlengana said it was critical that farmers address widespread poverty.

“I wish to remind you that according to Stats SA over 12 million people in South Africa live in extreme poverty and go to bed hungry every day. The critical question to ask is: What are we doing about the number of South Africans who go to bed hungry every single day?

“If there is no stability within the farming communities as a result of farm killing and murdering and stock theft‚ we may fail our nation if we don’t act now in fighting against any form of violence against brutal killing of farm owners and farm workers.”
