A South African farmer was convicted of shooting dead a Zimbabwean worker and got 20 years of imprisonment.
The radio reported that Judge Ronnie Boshielo dismissed Crossberg's claim that he fired the shots to scare off a troop of baboons terrorizing his farm.
The court also found Crossberg guilty of shooting at four other employees after he had accused them of laziness. He was sentenced to five years on each of four counts of attempted murder. The sentences are to run concurrently.
Crossberg was refused the right to appeal.
