Dad killed for R30


June 2 nd, 2015

Brits, Pretoria - Early Saturday morning three robbers stabbed and killed a father in Rashoop near Brits after stealing the family’s last R30 and a cell phone. Andries Snyman (59) died four hours later when an ambulance arrived. Two of the robbers asked for money at gun point while Andries’ wife Annatjie and son Stephan were in the bedroom. They did not have valuables to steal. The family sold their home in Pretoria because the couple lost their jobs. They relocated to Brits, hoping to find work but they could not afford the rent for two months. A pastor helped them find a small shelter and Andries started working there. The family had been going through hardship which has now been exasperated by Andries’ death.
