An East London man who allegedly killed a friend and held his two children hostage on a farm was shot dead during an apparent scuffle with a police officer over the weekend, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.

The drama unfolded on the Geluksdal farm in Gonubie on Saturday, where a 45-year-old "farm owner" had allowed his friend, his friend's wife and their two children to live temporarily, said Captain Hazel Mqala.

Farmer shot dead after fatally beating sangoma in night of terror on Gonubie farm

Eastern Cape police have confirmed that a white farmer was shot dead by police shortly after he viciously attacked a sangoma who had been staying on the man's Geluksdal farm in Gonubie, East London.

The two were allegedly socialising in the early hours of Saturday morning when an argument developed and escalated into a physical confrontation.

A series of tweets posted by Themba Rumbu early on Monday morning explains how Fritz Joubert allegedly killed his cousin Anele Hoyana and kidnapped the man's wife and children.

Trying to figure out where the farm is. I grew up in Gonubie, but I suspect it is one of those farms just outside when you drive to the east coast resorts.

RIP to the victim but Im glad the criminal was killed.

Also, thank you for letting us know it was a white farmer, as if that would have made a difference.

Then you know that this is the current talk of the Gonubie town ;) Gonubie has no secrets, just a very good social network.

I escaped in 1997 :D (Still a great place to have a good holiday)

Jesus I could not even find that video on his profile where they found that one frame of him.

Why not simply use an uploaded picture. Ai, journalists.

Dressed in a Springbok shirt nogal? Ndlozi must be saving that for later.
Don't worry, there's already been plenty of racial hatred stirred up over that as well. It has not gone unremarked.

I am still trying to understand what sort of friends these guys were, and the mad one was also a trainee Sango a even though he seemed to have found God towards the end.
