A reward of R20 000 has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of three robbers who shot a Kimberley farmer and left him for dead in March this year, police said.
The farmer was returning to his farm when the three men attacked him, said Captain Cherelle Ehlers on Friday.
The robbers used cement blocks and metal poles to block a cattle crossing on the Wintersrush gravel road.
"They fired four shots at Willem van Zyl, 33, and also assaulted him. The robbers took his cellphone and firearm. He was shot in his upper and lower body and in his right wrist," said Ehlers.
Anyone with information on the incident should contact Crime Stop on 08600-10111. - Sapa
