POLICE arrested a 36-year-old man this morning (11/11/15) in connection with the brutal murder of an ex-Telkom technician on his Greenbushes smallholding in October this year.

Retired Telkom technician-turned-businessman Johan van der Berg, 54, was viciously stabbed in the attack on his smallholding.

His ex-wife, Petro, 42, found his partly clothed body face down in a pool of blood in the passage on the morning of 17 October.

Three firearms – a shotgun, pistol and hunting rifle – were stolen from his safe by his attackers.

We will have more on this story in The Herald tomorrow.
