It is alleged that the deceased, Nkalamelo Latha, accompanied one of the farm workers to the farm.
Police spokesperson Captain Livhuhani Hani said the farm worker entered the lion’s enclosure with Latha and the lions escaped from their feeding area and attacked the farm worker and the boy.
“The farm worker managed to escape without injuries however Lutho was not so fortunate as he was attacked by lions and succumbed to his wounds.”
