The Department of Agriculture, Land Reform and Rural Development in the Northern Cape says justice has prevailed following a life sentence of a convicted murderer from Kakamas recently.


The 31-year-old Hendrik Dawson was handed a life sentence for the murder of his employer and retired farmer, Jan Hough, on November 8,  2017. 

Hough's body was found in an open field near Spieëlkop at Kakamas. He sustained stab wounds in the head and back of the neck. Hough earlier the same day drove with his bakkie to fetch Dawson, who was his gardener at the time. He never returned. Someone who knew Hough saw Dawson driving around in his bakkie and managed to stop the vehicle, but Dawson ran away.

 While police were at the murder scene they received information of a man that confessed to another person that he has killed someone. Dawson was found guilty in November on charges of murder and robbery with aggravated circumstances.
