Limpopo cops have launched a manhunt for a group of armed men who shot a Limpopo farmer and his wife at their farm outside Bela-Bela in Limpopo on Wednesday.

The farmer (82) is recovering in hospital while his 73-year-old wife died from gun wounds.

Ngoepe said an undisclosed amount of money was stolen from the farmer’s house.

He said it is not yet clear if other things were taken from the house.
