Johannesburg - A Marble Hall farmer was shot at and robbed of his car and an undisclosed amount of money while driving into his farm's yard, Limpopo police said on Saturday.

Two gunmen, who it seems were waiting for the farmer to arrive, tried to stop him as he was driving into the property on Friday around 15:00, Captain Malesela Ledwaba said.

He said the two men started shooting at the farmer when he did not stop, hitting him in the leg.

He eventually stopped.

The two gunmen took the farmer's white 2.5 Isuzu bakkie and an undisclosed amount of money.

The vehicle's registration number is DCN 783 N.

The farmer is in a stable condition at a local hospital, Ledwaba said.

The incident happened in the Elandskraal policing area.
