The son of a murdered farmer has challenged ANC Youth League statements that land should be taken without compensation, according to a report on Friday.

Hanno van Rensburg, son of the murdered farmer, Johan van Rensburg, 77, blamed the ANC Youth League for the crime in which his mother Gloudien, 65, was also critically wounded, reported Beeld newspaper.

“The ANC Youth League say they want to take our land by violent means and declare war. If they want war, they must come. I'll f****** shoot them. My family's blood has been spilt on this land.”

Ronald Lamola, deputy president of the ANC Youth League, called on Tuesday night at the Durban University of Technology for the expropriation of land without compensation.

“We need an act as forceful as war to bring it back to the Africans,” Lomola said.

Henry Geldenhuys, deputy president of the Transvaal Agricultural Union, said Lamola was inciting violence.

“There's no option left for the farmers but to prepare for a war.”

On Thursday, Hanno van Rensburg cleaned the blood spattered bedroom where his parents were shot.

“Why didn't they just take stuff and leave my parents alone? Only guns were stolen during the attack. I want to say to the murderers: F*** you. I want to get hold of them, I want to shoot them.” - Sapa
