The Independent Police Investigative Directorate is investigating allegations of police collusion in the theft of livestock around the Free State town of Senekal.
This as Police Minister Bheki Cele’s confirmed one suspect in the Brendin Horner murder case has previously been arrested on 16 occasions.
“One of them has been arrested two times, but the other one has been arrested 16 times. I would like to know why a person that has been arrested 16 times is given another chance to commit another crime.
Nearly two weeks ago, the farm foreman was found murdered, apparently after he stumbled across stock thieves who turned on him.
Photos of alleged stock thieves form part of an extensive dossier. Most startling is the alleged link to the police.
Farmers who conducted their own investigations tracked cell phone numbers and vehicles to police officers.
Horner’s alleged murderers are expected back in court on Friday.
Cele says the police will be deployed in their numbers to avoid a repeat of the violent scenes which played out last week.
