Buchule Jack, a young Free State Farmer, on the murder of Anele Hoyana by a fellow farmer


Farmers from around South Africa have expressed their shock and horror after the news that a fellow farmer, Fritz “Majeka Joubert”, has killed his sangoma trainer, Anele Hoyana, at Geluksdal farm near Gonubie in the Eastern Cape.

While it was trending on social media we discussed this with Buchule Jack, a young farmer from Bothaville in the Free State who was in studio with Food For Mzansi as part of our Farmer’s Inside Track podcast series.

He too is filled with sadness after the tragic incident, and has asked South Africans to remember that the agricultural sector has already made great strides in eradicating racism. Jack says, “Yes, it’s important to raise the fact that South Africa is still a racially divided country, but it is important to do everything in our power to make sure that (the) narrative changes.”
