CAPE TOWN – Police in Cape Town are searching for a suspect in connection with the murder of former Naspers financial director Eric Wiese.
It’s alleged that the 81-year-old Wiese was robbed and murdered at his home in Higgovale in the city on Friday afternoon.
Cape Town police say that Wiese was tied up and stabbed to death during a house robbery at his home in Higgovale.
Wiese’s wife was out shopping and when she arrived home she found her husband dead.
Media24 chief Esmar Weidemann says Wiese will be remembered for his contribution to print media operations at Naspers.
“For us younger generation he was a role model, always a gentleman and always very interested in Media24. We’ll all miss him dearly.”
Officials have confirmed Wiese’s home had been ransacked and several valuable household items were stolen.
