The 57-year-old Lebyane Seroka, who was the station commander of the Groblersdal police station, was shot and killed by an unknown number of suspects in front of his house at Mmaganagobuswa village.

According to provincial police spokesperson Motlafelo Mojapelo, the suspects stole Seroka's vehicle and fled the scene.

"Police immediately started their search for the suspects and the vehicle was later found abandoned along the Dennilton-Maklerekeng Road.

"Preliminary police investigations revealed that the deceased woke up early in the morning and prepared to go to a funeral.

"At about 04h30, he went out of the house and as he was about to leave, he was shot dead in front of his gate."

The motive for the killing is unknown.


Second arrest for violence outside Senekal court

His arrest came during a day of high drama in the streets of the normally quiet Free State town. Members of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), African National Congress (ANC), civil rights organisations like Afriforum and various farming communities and associations gathered in various places while two suspects appeared in court for the brutal murder of young farm manager Brendin Horner.
