Cape Town Police say an autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death of Naspers former Financial Director.

The 81-year-old Eric Wiese was attacked outside his home in the elite suburb of Higgovale in Cape Town on Friday afternoon.

The suspects stole some household items, which the family say did not have significant value.
