Farm murders "hurt SA economy"

From a News24 report 23/02/2011

"I am frustrated that the horror crimes farmers are exposed to are not priority crimes for the government,” said Johannes Moller, president of Agri SA, in a statement.

Moller said farm murders must be addressed as one of the “focal points” if government was serious about its aims to turn agriculture into an area for job creation.

He specifically referred to attitudes, statements and conduct that was needed from political role players to build a community where lives, property rights and cultural heritage was respected.
