According to a report in the Sunday Times, the estate of Martin and Teresa van Breda is being wrapped up by top legal experts, with the surviving siblings set to receive around R200 million in total.
Martin van Breda was a successful businessman who had directorships in at least 25 companies. The family lived in Australia for a number of years before returning to South Africa just six months before the brutal murders.
Marli van Breda, 16, was discharged from the Vergelegen Mediclinic on Saturday last week and is in a rehabilitation facility. Family members are keeping her whereabouts under wraps so that she can make a full recovery away from the public eye.
According to family spokesperson, Martin Coetzee, “She can speak and her health has improved considerably, but like anybody who had a head injury she cannot function 100 percent yet. She must receive occupational and physiotherapy,” said Coetzee.
The grade 11 pupil sustained head injuries during an attack on her family at the De Zalze golf estate in Stellenbosch on January 27.
No arrests have yet been made, although the police have given the National Prosecuting Authority the murder docket for consideration.
