A Guruve farmer, who was brutally beaten in an attack on him and his daughter near their property earlier this month, has died this week.
Malcolm Francis and his daughter Catherine were attacked by unidentified suspects on May 10th. The pair was found beaten and unconscious by a family member who rushed them to hospital.
Catherine passed away last week Wednesday as a result of the serious injuries she suffered.
Malcolm passed away on Monday night.
The Commercial Farmers Union (CFU) has expressed its shock and anger over the incident and called for the perpetrators of the attack to be brought to book.
The group will be holding a press conference in Harare on Friday to discuss the situation facing the agricultural sector in Zimbabwe, in light of the deaths.
