LIMPOPO – According to unconfirmed reports the attack happened at around 21:00 and Emslie’s wife, Mariette was seriously injured and his daughter Barbara was also injured.

Dr Emslie was shot and died on the scene. The suspects fled the scene in Mariette’s Black Edition double cab bakkie, however the vehicle was later found abandoned several kilometers from the scene, where they allegedly climbed over into another vehicle.

Mariette is currently in a critical but stable condition in a hospital in Pretoria.

According to message sent by a neighbour of the Emslie’s, Barabara let a friend know via SMS that armed suspects had surrounded their house.

“When we got to the house we found the body of Werner on the veranda. Mariette was lying in the walk-in safe and had sustained serious wounds. What we could see was that she had been shot and sustained several knife wounds.”

This information, however, is unconfirmed.
