Anele Hoyana death: Fritz Joubert killed Anele Hoyana allegedly using his fists, as well as a rifle, to beat Hoyana to death.
Fritz Joubert and Anele Hoyana were allegedly socialising in the early hours of Saturday morning when an argument developed and escalated into a physical confrontation.
Hoyana had reportedly been training Joubert to be a sangoma.
Themba Rumbu posted chilling two videos of the incident. Joubert had posted the videos to his Facebook timeline.
In the video that’s been widely shared on social media, Fritz Joubert can be seen insulting Anele Hoyana, refering to Hoyana as Satan.
The video showed a visibly agitated Joubert, wearing a Springbok jersey and has the word ‘Majeke’ scrawled on his arm.
Hoyana is seen holding a toddler in his arms and was forced to kneel on the floor. Joubert holds a knobkierie, calling Hoyana the devil.
Joubert claims that Hoyana, who is seen slumped in a chair inside the luxurious home, was attempting to bewitch him. He refers to himself as “The Chosen One” and “Prince Majeke” who is doing what God wants of him.
Another video showed Hoyana’s wife sobbing while repeatedly calling out her husband’s name as she tried to get closer while Joubert beat his body.
It’s understood a police officer shot and killed Fritz Joubert.
According to East London police spokesperson Captain Hazel Mqala, Joubert was shot after ignoring a warning from the officer.
What happened was Joubert reportedly tried to solicit help from neighbouring farms, but the owners instead contacted the Gonubie and Blue Water police stations.
When police arrived at the house, they found Hoyana lying on the floor on his back with extensive head injuries.
They were allegedly told by Joubert that “Nobody is leaving here today”.
It is unclear at this stage how Hoyana’s wife managed to leave the house but she waited outside while police spoke to Joubert.
The officers were shown to a bathroom where Hoyana’s children, a two-week-old baby and a two-year-old, were hidden in the bath. They were removed from the home and handed to their mother.
While one police officer was handing the children to their mother, Joubert allegedly attacked the Warrant Officer who remained behind inside the house.
East London police spokesperson Captain Hazel Mqala said:
“During the struggle one shot went off and hit the floor. Odendaal (the Warrant Officer) warned the farm owner, but without hesitation he attacked again.
Odendaal fired one shot in self defence and during the struggle the bullet from his service pistol entered under the left arm and fatally wounded the attacker.”

Police’s Thembinkosi Kenana added:
“The police were called to intervene in the situation and, on their arrival, there was apparently some resistance on the part of the man.
During the struggle, there was also a shooting that actually happened, which resulted in the farmer being killed.”
Ipid is investigating Joubert’s shooting as a seperate incident.
