Two on murder charges

Two men accused of murdering an elderly farming couple will appear in the Pietermaritzburg high court this week.

Nokosikayilwa Duma, 20, and Bonginkosi Duma, 22, will face murder and armed robbery charges following the slaying of Ray Fitch, 79, and his wife Yvonne, 78. .

The couple were beaten and stabbed to death on their farm in the Swartberg district in southern Drakensberg last month.

Police are still searching for a third suspect who is on the run.

The murders have put the farming community in the area on high alert. - Sowetan Reporter
