During July 2019, there were 39 farm attacks, 4 farm murders and 4 farm attacks were averted. During the month of June 2019, there were 34 farm attacks and 6 farm murders, whilst 3 farm attacks were averted. And for the period 1 January to the end of May 2019, there were already 184 Farm attacks and 20 farm murders. A staggering statistic and the government says its not happening!
