At around 1:15 AM on Tuesday 24 November 2020, a smallholding at Mooiplaats East of Pretoria was attacked by three men. Anton Kleyn (61) and Aubrey du Plessis (45) were both shot. Sadly Anton died on the scene.
“I have broad shoulders, I will probably get through this,” said Louis Kleyn (66) after his younger brother was shot.
Aubrey, who was sleeping on the couch, was shot first. He then shouted to warn Anton, who was in the bedroom at the time.
Anton came out of the room with a Chinese sword (which hung on the wall for decoration) as a weapon. He told Aubrey to go hide, Louis says.
