Polokwane - Three men have been arrested for allegedly killing a 79-year-old pensioner on a farm in Lephalale, Limpopo police said on Tuesday.

The men were arrested on Monday for allegedly killing Koos Jonker, Colonel Ronel Otto said.

He was found dead on his bathroom floor on August 3, in the quarters he rented on the farm.

“His hands and feet were tied up and he had severe assault wounds on his head,” said Otto.

The men would appear in the Lephalale Magistrate's Court on Wednesday on charges of murder and housebreaking.
