Tzaneen - A farmer was killed in Letsitele, just outside Tzaneen, on Saturday, Limpopo police said.

The 55-year-old was found lying in a pool of blood around 11am with an open wound on his head, Lt-Gen Moatshe Ngoepe said.

His house had been ransacked.

The man's body was discovered on his farm by family members when they arrived for a visit, Ngoepe said.

“The motive is not clear but robbery is not ruled out,” he said.
