Gert Uys, 55, was shot and killed in his farmhouse at Swart-Mfolozi on July 31.

He was killed as he was preparing to pay his employees.

Zwane said the men took R18,000 and a revolver. They fled the scene in the farmer's Toyota Land Cruiser vehicle, which was later found abandoned on a gravel road.

Two firearms were recovered during the arrest and would be sent for ballistic tests.

The two are due to appear in the Vryheid Magistrate's Court on Friday.
