Farm Murder: 45-year-old man killed on farm in Western Cape

Wynand Breedt, a well-known singer and songwriter in the Western Cape, was shot dead during an attack on a farm in the Nuy Valley between Worcester and Robertson on Friday night.

Police spokesman Noloyiso Rwexana says “A 45-year-old man was found dead with a gunshot wound to his chest. The motive for the murder is not yet known.”

She says police are investigating a murder but cannot say at this stage whether it was preceded by a farm attack.

“We can’t say yet whether it was a farm attack. Our police file does not show that something was stolen from the house. “

Police are following up clues to find those responsible for his death, she says.

Rwexana said the police investigation is ongoing.

Breedt taught music lessons all over the Western Cape. His music career began when he first sang soprano as an eight-year-old boy. He was a member of several choirs, including the Tygerberg Children’s Choir, to which he joined at the age of 13.

Police are asking that people with information call them on 021 417 7587 or 071 604 8321.
