Bloemfontein - A United States farm manager has been hacked with pangas in an attack on a farm in the Ladybrand district, the Volksblad newspaper reported on Tuesday.

Allen Rodgers, 61, was taken to the Mediclinic hospital, in Bloemfontein, by ambulance with lacerations and stab wounds after the attack on the farm Geluk on Monday night.

According to the newspaper, his assailants waited for him in the farmhouse, where they had tied up a female friend of his.

Free State Agriculture district representative Bernard Maree said the attackers apparently stole cash and cellphones.

Police and soldiers along the borderline with Lesotho searched for the men until late on Monday night.

It was believed the attack could be linked to recent job losses on the farm, the newspaper reported. - Sapa
