A 59-year-old farmer was shot dead and his wife was assaulted in Zeerust on Sunday morning, North West police said.

The man was killed by three men who broke into their house on Welverdiend Farm near Groot Marico, said Brigadier Thulane Ngubane.

The men shot the farmer and assaulted his 54-year-old wife with a panga. She suffered head injuries.

The men then robbed them of R260 000, a laptop, and a firearm, and drove away with the farmer's white double-cab Mazda, said Ngubane.

The vehicle was later found a few kilometres away from the farm.

Police were searching for the men, he said. - Sapa
