Prevent Thandi Modise from owning animals. SPCA: "worst cruelty"

POTCHEFSTROOM - Police and officials from the SPCA have found animals either dead or starving at a Potchefstroom farm belonging to former North West premier and newly-elected National Council of Provinces chairperson, Thandi Modise.

It appeared that the over 100 pigs, sheep, chickens and goats had been without water and food for a week, possibly two.

It’s the worst farm cruelty that I've come across...

The SPCA was called to Thandi Modise’s farm in the North West after receiving a tip-off that animals on the land had been abandoned. What they found shocked them.

Andries Venter of the SPCA said, "It’s the worst farm cruelty that I've come across in the twenty years that I've been with the SPCA. Its horrific. We're all at a loss for words."
