Representatives from the African National Congress (ANC), Democratic Alliance (DA) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) from Krugersdorp have joined hundreds of mourners at Ha-Mangilasi outside Thohoyandou, where the farm worker who was shot dead in Gauteng last Saturday is being buried.

Forty three-year-old Aaron Mutavhatsindi was killed, allegedly by a security guard, while driving a tractor.

Mutavhatsindi was accused of stealing the tractor from his employer.

His family says he often used the tractor to go home for lunch.

The suspect has been arrested and he will appear in court on Monday to apply for bail.
