David Greig, 65, a cattle and pig farmer from Hartzenbergfontein, and his wife, Jeanette, 64, were woken up in their bedroom on Friday evening by a man that had entered the house presumably through a window.
"The armed man forced my mother-in-law to open the kitchen door for his two accomplices, who were waiting outside," said Tom Hendriks, their son-in-law on Tuesday. Hendriks said Greig was walking behind his wife and the man to the kitchen.
"My mother-in-law couldn't find the keys. Then my parents-in-law wrestled with the man to get the gun." Shot once in head, twice in chest Hendriks said his father-in-law died on the kitchen floor after being shot once in the head and twice in the chest.
"My father-in-law's mother, Hannah Greig, was shot and killed by robbers in exactly the same spot in 1996.
"It's so ironic," Hendriks said. Her attackers, 12 men, were caught and are currently serving a total of 175 years in prison. The Greig couple had been living on this farm in the Walkerville area for the past 18 years.
Hendriks said his mother-in-law had been badly assaulted and was stabbed with a blunt knife. "She has already been to a specialist and it was found that she has permanently lost her hearing because of a burst eardrum."
