Murder of hotel owner in Pofadder: Shocking incident in quiet area

Reports that the owner of the Pofadder Hotel, Mr Leon Brits, was murdered in his home shocked the peaceful Boesmanland. According to early reports, the incident relates to a labour dispute. He was allegedly stabbed with knives, strangled with a chain and then thrown into the indoor pool, where his wife later found him.

Over the last few years, Pofadder has grown significantly due to the Kamsberg mine that was developed between Aggenys and Pofadder. The development has created many economic possibilities in the Boesmanland, which has been affected by severe droughts lately. Apart from tourism, extensive sheep farming is the only other significant economic activity thriving in the desert-like region.

In general, the carefree nature of the area and the friendliness of its people are some of the region's greatest assets. Only time will tell whether this gruesome incident has destroyed this for good.

The community has been asked to remain calm until it becomes clear what exactly transpired. South Africa currently finds itself in a very volatile situation as the temperature is on the rise due to various cruel murders.

While the onslaught on the safety of ordinary citizens must surely stop, the people must also refrain from irresponsible behaviour and statements.
