A South African activist who spoke out against attacks on white farmers has been found stabbed and beaten to death on her own farm.
Annette Kennealy, 51, was killed on a smallholding in Limpopo province on either Monday night or Tuesday morning where she had been staying with an employee, police said.
The alarm was raised by Ms Kennealy’s mother, Kim Labuschagne, after she tried and failed to get in touch with her daughter on Tuesday.
A male relative then went to the farm where Ms Kennealy’s body was found face-down in a pool of blood.
Kennealy was a publicly outspoken supporter of the white Afrikaner community and former councillor with South Africa’s opposition Democratic Alliance party
