Polokwane - A 59-year-old British woman who owned a game lodge near Thabazimbi has been murdered, Limpopo police said on Wednesday.

Christine Robinson's body was found by her staff in her bedroom around 7.30am, Lt-Colonel Ronel Otto said.

“It seems she was stabbed in her neck... money she withdrew to pay salaries seems to be missing,” Otto said.

AfriForum spokesman Ian Cameron appealed to government to prioritise farm murders.

“This is another horrific murder in South Africa. The slow rate at which government responds to crime sends a distorted image of our country to the rest of the world,” Cameron said.

No arrests have been made.
