South Africa’s food security is dependent on the safety of farming communities, according to Uys van der Westhuijzen, chairperson of Agri SA’s Centre of Excellence on Rural Safety.

“As such, the vulnerability of rural, farming communities is a matter of national importance. Farmers and farmworkers produce the food South Africans rely on, and contribute to national stability.” — Farmer’s Weekly
