Farmer attacked for second time in two months – by the same gang

A landowner in Limpopo has been beaten for the second time in two months – by the same criminal gang – in yet another vicious farm attack.

 
 

Being the victim of one farm attack is traumatic enough, but suffering two during the lockdown is beyond the pale. Betrus Kotze was battered by crooks who raided his property this week, as farmworkers were also targeted in Mokgalakwena, Limpopo. Shockingly, this gang had beaten Kotze just a couple of months before.

FARM ATTACK: LANDOWNER SUFFERS SECOND BEATING IN TWO MONTHS

The alleged “lawlessness” in this region has allowed an unrepentant criminal syndicate to target a landowner twice, with little to deter them from striking again. This latest farm attack was particularly brutal:

  • Mr Kotze was ambushed at his cattle kraal, tied up and viciously attacked.
  • He suffered a number of serious injuries, but he is in a stable condition.
  • The farmworkers at the kraal were already tied up, too.
  • The attackers were on the way to the farmhouse, but farmworkers suspected that something was wrong and called Mr Kotze’s nephew for assistance.

MORE RESOURCES NEEDED TO FIGHT RURAL CRIME

The DA has been campaigning for years to toughen-up rural security in crime hot-spots. This part of Limpopo has seen two other serious farm attacks take place in July, and DA Limpopo Leader Jacques Smalle has demanded that more resources are made available to the Mokgalakwena SAPS to prevent these heinous acts.

 

“We condemn the attack on Betrus Kotze on his farm at Tinmyne in the Mokgalakwena municipality yesterday afternoon. The attackers fled to a nearby settlement where they were picked up by a vehicle road. This is the second attack on Kotze in two months. The attackers were identified as the same in both attacks.”

“It is clear that the SAPS in the remote areas of Mokgalakwena municipality are not adequately resourced to effectively deal with farm attacks, hence the re-occurrence. There were also farm attacks at Percy Fyfe and Dwaalboom in Mokgalakwena municipality this month. We wish a speedy recovery to all the victims.”

Afrikaans singer Wynand Breedt shot and killed

 
Afrikaans singer Wynaand Breedt.
 

Breedt was shot and killed on his farm outside Worcester, in the Western Cape, on Friday evening.

According to police spokesperson Sergeant Noloyiso Rwexana, the incident occurred around 22:30. A 45-year-old man was found dead with a gunshot wound to his chest.

“The motive for the killing is unknown at this stage,” Rwexana  said.

“Police are following up on leads in order to bring those responsible to book.”

Police did not disclose any other details surrounding the shooting.

AfriForum’s head of community safety in the Western Cape, Thomas van Dalen,  confirmed that Breedt was shot and killed.

While the details surrounding the shooting are still emerging, it is believed that Breedt and his partner, John Sinclaire, were out and arrived back at the farm around 22:00, Van Dalen said.

Sinclaire went to open the house, while Breedt parked the car.

“As he (Sinclaire) opened the door, a man stood in the door with a firearm pointed at him. He slammed the door closed,” Van Dalen said.

Van Dalen added that it is unclear what happened between the time that Sinclaire found a man in the house to when he found Breedt’s body, but that Breedt was already dead with a gunshot wound to his chest when his body was discovered.

South African farmers denied permission to protest in Tshwane

A protest against farm murders that was scheduled to take place on Saturday 18 July to voice South African farmers’ growing concerns over their safety has been shutdown by the Tshwane Metro Police Department (TMPD) due to regulations preventing the congregation of crowds during the nationwide lockdown. 

The organisation and members of the farming community had hoped to march to the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

The South African Farmers, Women and Children of All Races organisation believe that the denial of their application to stage the peaceful protest is a flagrant abuse of their constitutional rights, and they have demanded that attacks and the killing of farmers be urgently addressed by President Cyril Ramaphosa. 

 

Protest application denied due to ‘COVID-19 situation’ 

TMPD spokesperson Isaac Mahamba said that his department had denied their application to stage the protest due to “the COVID-19 situation”. 

“We received an application for a march by an organisation called South African Farmers, Women and Children of All Races. We could not approve this march due to the current COVID-19 situation in the country.”

“However, the TMPD has been made aware that the marchers are planning to proceed with the march regardless of the declined application,” said Mahamba.

Mahamba said that if the march goes ahead, it will be regarded as illegal and police will be deployed to disperse any crowd that forms.

“The TMPD would like to appeal to members of the public to refrain from engaging in any marches in order to reduce COVID-19 infections,” he says.

Farm conglomerate demands urgent intervention to prevent further murders 

Devon Hofmeyr, who was set to address the crowd on the day of the protest, informed members that the march has been called of.

“Unfortunately, I cannot send people whose interests I put first in an illegal march. The safety and well-being of our people in times like these must come first,” Hofmeyr told Rekord.

He said that it would be extremely disappointing if it emerged that other groups with serious issues to voice were given the go-ahead to protest after they had been denied.

 

“I really hope that those who hold marches, which are supposed to be illegal, will also receive the type of opposition from the metro,” he added.

Hofmeyr said that whether they are able to march or not, Ramaphosa has an urgent responsibility to tackle the issue. 

“We are currently in a situation where our farmers are being brutally murdered at hellish speed.”

“President Cyril Ramaphosa must classify farm murders as a priority crime.”

Ramaphosa: ‘Farm murders is an issue of great concern’ 

During his interaction with communities across the nation through a virtual Presidential Imbizo on COVID-19 on Wednesday 15 July, Ramaphosa said the spate of farm murders is “of great concern”.

“The issue of farm murders is a issue that is of great concern to us, as of course the killing of many other people including women in our country,” he said.  

He added though, that this desire to root out violent crime and reduce South Africa’s staggering murder rate applies to people from all of the nation’s communities. 

“Anyone who is killed or is murdered, is of great concern to all of us and the attacks that are taking place on farms are issues that we are concerned about”, he said.

IN COLD BLOOD: Robbers execute young white couple stranded on motorway after running out of petrol in South Africa ‘racist attack’

A YOUNG white couple were executed by robbers in a suspected racist attack after getting stranded on a motorway when they ran out of petrol in South Africa.

Two black employees in the car with the pair were beaten by the killers – but spared death.

Johanco Fleischman, 19, and his girlfriend Jessica Kuhn, 23, were executed in cold blood as they waited for a family friend to bring them a can of diesel.

They were mowed down in a hail of bullets by three black robbers according to their injured workers, who described the horrific double murder to shocked police in detail.

They said the Toyota Hilux had run out of fuel on Sunday, on the N12 West near Benoni, about 20 miles east of Johannesburg.

Johanco, a butcher, had called a pal for help.

But as the group awaited rescue, three men – who allegedly looked like illegal gold miners – walked past the stranded vehicle before returning and hissing the word “umhulungu” – said to be a derogatory phrase for a white man – at the teenager.

Then, one of the men pulled a revolver without warning and fired at least nine bullets, hitting Johanco with repeated shots in his body.

As he slumped onto the road the gunman then leaned into the cab and killed a screaming Jessica with a single shot to the head – execution style – before the men stole her mobile phone.

MURDERED IN BROAD DAYLIGHT

In an attempt to cover their tracks, the trio tried to set fire to the inside of the Toyota with a lighter before calmly strolling away.

The two badly beaten workers fled for their lives.

A passing motorist noticed a fire in the vehicle, and used an extinguisher to douse the flames.

He then saw the dead teenager in the road, and his girlfriend lying dead in the passenger seat.

The motorist called the emergency services, who were quickly at the scene on top of a bridge spanning the motorway.

The brutal double slaying occurred in broad daylight, and despite police and paramedics arriving shortly after being called, the couple were declared dead at the scene.

Gauteng Police spokesman Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini said: “In condemning these cold-blooded murders we assure the family that all possible leads are being followed to trace the killers.

“These men must be considered to be armed and dangerous so if seen please contact the police and any information that leads to the arrest of these three killers will be rewarded.”

Nearly 20,000 people are murdered a year in South Africa – an average of 52 a day – and last year the Global Peace Index conducted by the Institute for Economics and Peace rated it one of the most dangerous countries in the world.

Last week a South African activist who spoke out against white farm attacks was battered to death with a hammer in her home.

In October 2018, a straight-A student, Hannah Cornelius, was kidnapped, gang-raped and murdered in South Africa after four men armed with knives stormed her car.

And in early 2017, a British woman was murdered and her husband left for dead after they were subjected to torture, using blowtorches, at their farm.

Brutal torture and farm murder of Engelbrecht couple – attackers sentenced

AfriForum and the organisation’s Trauma Support Unit welcome the sentence imposed by Judge David Makoba on two farm attackers in the North Gauteng High Court on 17 July 2020. The two accused, Julius Mapayi Goncalves and Jossias Nhalungo, both from Mozambique, each received two life sentences and 25 years for the murder of Fanie (78) and Colleen Engelbrecht (74) as well as robbery with aggravating circumstances and for the possession of illegal firearms.

Judge Makoba found them guilty on 7 February 2020 already, but sentencing was postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Engelbrecht couple were brutally murdered on Mother’s Day in 2018 on their farm Welgevonden on the West Rand when they returned from church. Colleen was burned with an iron and strangled with its cord, and Fanie’s throat was slit. Only a tablet computer, cell phone, cash and two firearms were looted.

Marius Muller, national operational coordinator at AfriForum, today gave evidence on the brutality of farm attacks. He also testified that there had been 169 farm attacks and 23 farm murders so far this year.

“We are relieved about the sentence, but the grief will be with the family for a long time to come. Notwithstanding the sentence we will continue supporting the family,” says Magda Coetzee, trauma support officer at AfriForum’s Trauma Support Unit.

Spike in farm attacks

JOHANNESBURG – Police have confirmed a spike in farm attacks in the first half of this year compared to the same period last year.

There were 80 attacks between January and March, and a further 48 between April and June.

This compares to only six and seven attacks respectively in the first two quarters of 2019.

On Friday opposition MPs wanted to know what police are doing to stem the surge, in light of an additional R3.7-billion they received to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I want to confirm that rural safety is a priority under this budget allocation. The development of a rural policing strategy. This particular deliverable is intended to respond to the increase in farm murders. We are also looking at farm murders as a new modus operandi because criminals are presently under pressure under COVID-19, but I confirm the prioritisation of the budget related to rural policing,” said National police commissioner Khehla Sitole.

British Falklands veteran shot dead defending partner in South Africa farm raid

A British Falklands War hero was shot dead bravely defending his partner in a farm robbery in South Africa.

Former Royal Navy sailor Julian Stobbs, 59, was blasted multiple times in the head and chest after four armed gang members broke into their home as they slept.

Long-term partner Myrtle Clarke, 53, escaped unharmed after the noise of the gunshots alerted nearby neighbours and forced the killers to flee, leaving Julian dying.

The killers entered the couple’s bedroom in the early hours of the morning on Friday, making off with two cell phones and two laptops.

The death of Mr Stobbs was confirmed on the couple’s Facebook page.

Paramedics rushed to the remote Jazz Farm in Lanseria, 30 miles north of Johannesburg, but nothing could be done to save Julian who was declared dead at the scene.The former British serviceman was an air traffic controller for a Lynx helicopter that was on based on board frigate HMS Penelope during the Falklands War.

The hotelier’s son, originally from Keswick, Cumbria, and his partner had lived at the farm used as a private members and social club since 1994.

A Neighbourhood Watch response team member said: “The gang broke into the farm and stole two phones and two laptops and jewellery and other valuables.

“They had left the farm leaving the two alive but for some reason they came back again, perhaps for the woman, and there was a struggle and the man was shot.

“His injuries from the bullets were bad and nothing could be done to save him. The woman was in a very bad state but fortunately had not been hurt.”

Julian and Myrtle were internationally famous and known as “The Dagga Couple” after winning a five-year battle to make smoking cannabis legal in South Africa.

They became household names, well known for their cannabis bashes at their private club and popular Jazz Farm.

Before their court battle, Julian and Myrtle were busted in a police raid at their six-acre farm in 2010 which was run as a private members club and “hippy retreat” where cannabis was openly smoked.

Despite a five-hour search in which Myrtle was strip-searched three times and Julian held at gunpoint, police could not find a “superweed drug lab” they said existed.

 

But they did find a quarter pound of cannabis, known as dagga in South Africa, and charged them with drug dealing and they faced a ten-year prison sentence.

Speaking after the drugs raid on their home in 2010, Julian said: “I found myself with a revolver in my cheek and the more we thought about it the more we realised it was a gross invasion of our privacy.”

The retired air traffic controller, who served on the frigate HMS Penelope, and his partner refused to plead guilty and accept a lenient sentence offered by officers.

Instead they set up a powerful non-profit making organisation called Fields of Green for ALL to fight through the courts to make the personal use of cannabis legal.

The high profile case, dubbed “The Trial of the Plant”, was launched in 2013 and ended in 2018 with the law being changed to decriminalise the use, growing and possession of cannabis for personal use.

South African cannabis activist and businessman Tony Budden said: “This really is a tragedy for the cannabis culture in South Africa and is desperately sad.

 

“Jules worked tirelessly to bring awareness about the plant and its potential to the fore in order to create an open industry that benefitted all South Africans.

“We will use Jules’ passing to inspire us and to work even harder to see that his dreams don’t die and that his work on cannabis will continue through Myrtle.

“We will pick up his sword and make sure South Africa sees the ‘fields of green for all’ that he envisioned and as a community we will work towards that”.

Fellow activist Gareth Prince said: “The murder of Julian is a huge loss to us all and I understand Myrtle is distraught and wants time alone to mourn his death.

“He will be remembered by so many people and is now a legend.”

 
 

A statement on the couple’s Facebook page The Dagga Couple hailed Julian “our hero.”

It said: “During the early hours of Friday, 3 July, 2020, an armed robbery took place at the property of Jules Stobbs and Myrtle Clarke – best known as The Dagga Couple.

“The attackers entered the couple’s bedroom and shot and fatally wounded Jules Stobbs. Myrtle was physically left unharmed and the attackers made off with two cell phones and two laptops.

“The Cannabis community is mourning the passing of our hero. The family is requesting that the public respect their privacy and allow Myrtle some space during this difficult time.

 

“Thank you for the outpouring of love we have already received.”

Julian, known as Jules, left the Royal Navy in 1990 which he joined straight from school and travelled to Tokyo playing jazz guitar outside nightclubs.

He made so much money he flew to South Africa in 1993 where he met and fell in love with Myrtle Clarke and used his busking money to buy Jazz Farm outright.

The couple became involved in the South African TV and film industry working on the local version of Big Brother and on the Hollywood film Hotel Rwanda.

Both became art directors known as a “greensman” which was providing foliage both real and artificial such as plants, trees, flowers and vines for film sets.

Then came their arrest in 2010 and their subsequent campaign to legalise personal dagga use went global with funds pouring in from around the world.

In 2017 the Western Cape High Court in Cape Town ruled that prohibiting the use and possession of cannabis in private was against the nation’s constitution.

“This is not a land grab. We are taking back what belongs to us”

Hundreds of people in Midvaal occupy private land

  • Hundreds of people have flocked onto private land in Midvaal.
  • They each paid a “donation” of R250 to a group of men leading the occupation who call themselves the Big Six.
  • The Big Six say they will use the money to legally protect the occupation.
  • The legal owners of the land say they have been threatened and fear for their families’ safety.

Some private agricultural landowners in Walkerville, Elandsfontein, Midvaal, say they have been subjected to assault and threats to their families by a group of men who call themselves the Big Six and stage land occupations.

Hundreds of desperate people have moved onto private land after they were sold plots. The Red Ants with Johannesburg metro police (JMPD) have demolished shacks, but the occupiers refuse to leave.

On Friday, the North Gauteng High Court granted an eviction order. After shack demolitions on Sunday, occupiers returned and according to a land owner tried to set some houses on fire.

One of the landowners, Clinton Gruar, said the past three weeks have been a nightmare. “We just woke up and saw land invaders helping themselves to our land. They broke plot fences and began allocating people portions of our land. When we asked what they were doing they threatened to fight us if we try to remove them,” he said.

“They have been protesting, blocking roads, and denying us access to the invaded area. They even tried to set some houses on fire. Residents have been assaulted and threatened; they are fearing for their lives,” said Gruar.

On Friday, dozens of cars were driving into the area. Food was being sold and some people were buying zinc sheets from the men in charge of land allocations. People told GroundUp word had gone around that land was up for grabs for a “donation” of R250. Some adverts were even posted on social media alerting people to come in their numbers and buy land. They said the land allocators had promised them legal protection and that the land would not be taken from them.

A man who gave his name as Letho Masoka said he was the founder of the land occupations together with five other people. They called themselves the Big Six.

“We decided to take this land because the land has been vacant for years and dead bodies have been dumped because there was no activity here. The landowners say they are keeping land for agricultural purposes, but we do not see any agricultural activity here.

“We are allocating the land to our people who desperately need it. The land is for free, but we are merely asking for donations of R250 so that we can pay for legal representation to claim this land. By occupying the land all the crime which was being committed here will stop,” said Masoka.

He said over 1,000 people had bought in and were coming from places such as Nelspruit, Soweto, Orange Farm and Vlakfontein.

“This is not a land grab, invasion or occupation. We as the community are taking back what belongs to us,” he said.

Masoka said he and his partners would start a “world war” if anyone tried to stop the invasions.

Kateko Maluleka from Vlakfontein said: “I bought a piece of land here because l am tired of renting. Ever since l came from my rural home in Giyani l have been renting. Rentals around here are expensive. By getting land l will save a lot of money as l have children.”

She said the people she bought the land from promised her that the occupiers would soon have electricity and water.

Khensani Chauke said she doubted that the project was genuine, but she just took a chance out of desperation. “My husband and l just paid because we desperately need it.”

She said they had once bought a piece of land in Snake Park near Soweto before they were evicted by the Red Ants. They then rented a place in Vlakfontein.

“Losing this land would be painful because t

RESTAURANT OWNER, 67 IS HACKED 'INTO PIECES' IN FRONT OF HIS PARTNER WHILE BRAVELY FIGHTING TO PROTECT HER FROM MACHETE-WIELDING KILLER IN HORRIFYING ATTACK

  • German Eduard Neumeister was hit with ‘dozens of blows’ from a bush knife 
  • He collapsed in a pool of his own blood as his attacker went inside the restaurant 
  • He began strangling Eduard’s partner Margit, 62, before Eduard staggered in
  • The attacker renewed his frenzied attack on Eduard and hacked him to pieces
  • His family said Eduard’s injuries were ‘too gruesome’ for anyone to identify him

The owner of a German-themed restaurant has been murdered and hacked ‘into pieces’ by a machete-wielding robber in South Africa.

Eduard Neumeister, 67, who was born in Austria, was hit with ‘dozens of blows’ from a bush knife at his property in Balgowan, 70 miles outside Durban.

The frenzied attack happened as Eduard – known locally as Edi – went to feed his dogs and prepare for breakfast at the Bratwurst Sausage Restaurant and B&B that he ran with partner Margit Riebler, 62. 

As Eduard went outside he was struck with such force by a man wearing a balaclava that he was knocked to the ground.

His devastated partner Margit told police Eduard bravely fought for his life before tragically collapsing in a pool of his own blood.

Bloodied footprints and a splattered trail were left in the kitchen as Eduard desperately tried to save his partner's life

Thinking Eduard was dead, the attacker ambushed the restaurant kitchen, where he began strangling Margit and threatened: ‘Give me all the money or die.’ 

At this point Eduard staggered through the door, despite his severe injuries, as he desperately tried to help Margit and begged the attacker to leave her alone.

But the man launched a second attack on Eduard with such such ferocity that he was hacked beyond recognition. 

Paramedics and police officers said they had never seen such horrific injuries to a person and revealed Eduard was cut ‘into pieces’.

As the murderer continued to hack Eduard’s body on the kitchen floor, Margit fled to the main road and flagged down car. 

She was driven to a nearby boarding school and called emergency services, but the murderer fled the scene before police arrived, and no arrests have been made.

Last night Eduard’s daughter Sylvia, 38, fought back tears at her Cape Town home and said her father stood little chance of surviving the frenzied attack. 

‘Dad was hit from behind with a machete outside and it must have hit an artery as there was so much blood.

‘Edi had gone out to feed our rottweilers who are just so soft that they barked and ran away when this man attacked, and we think to be there at that time he must have been lying in wait for him.

‘We don’t know how he got past the electric fence and inside the main compound area but it would seem he knew my dad always fed the dogs at about 7.30am and he was waiting for him.’

A pool of Eduard's blood is seen on the steps into the restaurant where he managed to get up in a bid to save his partner's life as the attacker strangled her

‘Dad went down on the ground as you can see from all the bloodstains by the workshop but shouted a warning to Margit, but the black guy went inside then had his hands around her throat.’ 

She said that when her father heard Margit being attacked ‘he managed to get up and he tried to distract the burglar so that he could save her’. 

Sylvia, who works as a waitress, revealed her father’s injuries were ‘too gruesome for anyone to even try and identify him because it was just impossible to tell who he was’. 

She said so much of her father’s body had been attacked that ‘there was nothing left to put in a coffin’.    

Describing the killing as ‘plain brutal’, Sylvia added: ‘Our dad was a funny man with a wicked sense of humour who made people laugh. 

‘He did not harm anyone and was kind to everyone so he did not deserve this. His family had all helped him since 2010 build up his business and our blood, sweat and tears went into that.

‘Edi was a happy man who led a good life but thanks to this animal it was all over in an instant.

‘It is time this country woke up to what is happening on the farms and smallholdings because what happened here is just not right.’

Sylvia said that although her father had several safes containing cash and valuables nothing appeared to have been stolen, despite authorities believing robbery was the motive for the attack.

She said: ‘Perhaps when Margit ran and got away the killer just panicked and made a run for it’.  

Margit, a mother-of-two originally from Berlin, was too distraught to talk as she moved belongings out the property. 

Eduard’s son Tommy, a sommelier from Weinheim in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany, said he spoke with his father on the phone each week and would often visit with his wife and three-year-old son Elijah. 

He said: ‘Edi and I had talked about farm attacks in South Africa but he never thought it would happen to him and he had upped security with two dogs and an electric fence and he felt he was safe.

Daughter Sylvia, above, revealed her father's injuries were 'too gruesome for anyone to even try and identify him because it was just impossible to tell who he was'

‘Killings like this need to stop right now and I don’t want anyone else going through what we are going through and more has to be done to keep farmers and those on these smallholdings safe.

‘Edi was a proud father and grandfather and I feel a part of me has been ripped out. I could not believe that on Sunday instead of chatting to him as usual I was dealing with his death’ he said. 

Authorities have secured the property which is being patrolled and lived in by security guards.

KZN Province Premier Sihle Zikalala condemned the murder and said: ‘Violent crime will not be tolerated and those who commit such acts will be dealt with harshly. 

‘We must ensure that the safety of those in our rural farming communities is prioritised’.

Chris Pappas, the opposition party Democratic Alliance KZN spokesperson, said they had constantly called for rural communities to be better protected.

He said: ‘There has to be direct subsidising for security initiatives such as farm patrols and farm watches and the utilisation of technology such as CCTV and drones in hot spot areas.

‘We need the introduction and support of rural policing units that work with local crime prevention initiatives and the establishment of a provincial rural safety directorate’ he said.

South African Police Service spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala Mr Neumeister confirmed no arrests had yet been made.

Democratic Alliance local councillor Sandile Mnikati said: ‘I had met Mr Neumeister a few times when I went to his establishment and he was a gentle and loving man.

‘The brutal killing of one of the most loving members of our community is a tragedy and his loss to criminals in such a merciless manner will leave a scar for years to come on our community’.

Eduard, originally from Salzburg in Austria, moved to South Africa in the 1970s where he met and married his first wife in 1980. 

The marriage broke down in 1994 and Eduard later found new love with Margit before the pair launched their B&B business in 2010. 

Daughter Sylvia said: ‘Dad basically offered a traditional bit of Germany up in the hills of KwaZulu-Natal and his sausage dishes and German beer went down very very well with the tourists.

‘He also had a strong following of German locals with lots of passers-by mixed in and he became very well known locally and he loved nothing more than enjoying a few beers and a laugh.

‘The business was really taking off with the bed and breakfast side looking good for the future but then Covid-19 came along and he and Margit had to close their doors and then this happens.

‘My brother and I are devastated that something so dreadful could happen to our father and sadly know I think this is the end of his dream and I cannot see the restaurant ever reopening.

‘We just hope they catch the person responsible for his horrific murder and that anyone else who has had any involvement in setting it up in any way or shape or form is also caught’ she said.  

There were 21,000 murders in South Africa in 2019 – an average of 58 a day.  

 

#WhiteLivesMatterToo Whites Hacked, Stabbed, Raped, Tortured & Murdered by Blacks in SA in Same Week as #GeorgeFloyd Looting! MSM Silent!

Posted on 07/06/2020 <br><br>
DO WHITE LIVES EVEN MATTER ANYMORE? Do facts even matter?<br><br>In just ONE week in just ONE town, Bethlehem, the following black on white violent crimes were perpetrated: An elderly white couple were violently hacked with a panga in their home! Elderly white women stabbed in her neck in home invasion! 86 Year old white women raped in home invasion! You can be sure, you will NOT find the same crimes with the races reversed! While mainstream media in South Africa never mention the race of victims, yet suddenly they hypocritically are quick to join the George Floyd fake “anti-racism” campaign?<br><br>
Liberal media in South Africa never mentions the race of either the victim or attacker in violent attacks in South Africa. The reader of the crime reports have to figure out the race of the victim or the attacker from the names provided or where it happened, yet the liberal media is quick to support Black Lives Matter campaigns or the fake so called George Floyd “anti racism” campaign inspired by the globalist Alliance.
<br>
Useful idiot lefties are quick to join these campaigns but say nothing if white people are slaughtered or maimed by black men? Why don’t the liberal media and the Soros captured globalist Alliance say anything when white people are slaughtered and attacked by blacks? Why does the liberal Alliance go bezerk over George Floyd, but says nothing about black-on-white violence in USA or in South Africa? <br><br><br>One simple fact debunks all their hype and drama: for every 10,000 blacks arrested for violent crimes in USA, only 3 die. for every 10,000 whites arrested for violent crime, 4 die, this despite blacks being only 13% of the population! Black-on-white violence is regarded as ordinary crime by the liberals but not the other way around. <br><br><br>The double standards and hypocrisy is becoming so obvious that it simply has to be called out now. So should you.

The following happened in the small Free State town called Bethlehem in just one week, the same week as violent riots were instigated over the death of George Floyd in America. There are many many more small towns in South Africa, which is why the murder rate in South Africa is 56 per day, that we know of:<br><br>
– Kobie Smit (60) and his wife Annie Smit (58) were seriously injured when a black man attacked them with a panga on Thursday at around 18:00 in the neighbourhood Panorama. Kobie was outside in his yard when the man chopped him with the panga, walked past him and also chopped Annie inside the house with the panga. The man fled without taking anything and the couple’s neighbour discovered them and rushed them to hospital. Police are investigating attempted murder charges.<br>
<br>
– In a second incident, also on Thursday evening, a black man broke a window of a house where a 60 year old woman and her daughter were watching TV at around 21:15. The man stabbed the older woman in the neck, grabbed a laptop and fled with it through the same window. She fortunately survived the incident.
<br><br>
– Last week an 86 year old woman was attacked and raped, also in town. She heard a window break and was surprised by a black male attacker who detained her with a knife, cut her clothes off with it and then raped her. He stole money and groceries before fleeing. Bethlehem SAPS is investigating all these incidents.
<br><br>
In other notable incidents the past week:
– A medical doctor and farmer Roelof Botha was murdered, stabbed with sheep shears on Monday 1 June in Tulbagh, Western Cape. Botha had been out clay pigeon shooting and on his return from the land was overpowered 400 yards from his home, and hacked to death with a panga or sharp instrument.
<br><br>– Pieter Nel (65) is in critical condition after he was shot twice on his farm in Hartbeespoort on Friday, 5 June. His wife Ann was seriously assaulted.
<br><br>
– An elderly white couple Schalk (63) en Lana (59) Coetzee was also severely assaulted on the farm Libertas outside Reivilo, Northern Cape on Saturday 6 June, 2020. The man is in critical condition. His attackers, 4 black men in their twenties, poured boiling water on his back. The suspects stole and fled in a Nissan X-trail with some other items. Lana was able to get help, and her husband was found in bad shape tied up in the shower. Doctors were called out and victims were taken to Kimberley for medical as well as Trauma support.

Thanks to the cooperation of Rhino Security &amp; Armed Response, Vryburg Prototeam, South African Police, Reivilo GVE, Crossborder security and the public, all four attackers were arrested within 4 hours.
<br>
Rhino Security had sent out a BOLO on the National Police groups after receiving the alarm and groups where deployed around the area. Reivilo GVE members also engaged in the operation and momentum was given once Oorgrens Veiligheid Netwerk members began sharing information as the events played out. The Nissan X-Trail the attackers fled with got stuck in the mud so they had to continue on foot towards Dirk Fourie’s feedlot near Schweizer-Reneke. One tried to escape to the township nearby and the other fled into the bushcamp. The other two where arrested in the meantime by SAPS.<br><br>

#FarmAttack 14/5/2020: Bushyvales, KwaZulu-Natal. 2 suspects pretended to buy scrap metal. Female victim approached them &amp; one of the suspects attempted to stab her with a screwdriver. Neighbour noticed commotion and fired shots at the suspects. One suspect found dead in field.
<br><br>#FarmAttack 29/5/2020: Cradock, Eastern Cape. Female victim was attacked by two suspects with a knife. She fought back and managed to retreat to the house and activate the alarm. Attackers fled on foot, no serious injuries reported.
<br><br>#FarmAttack 31/5/2020: Nelspruit, Mpumalanga. Two suspects armed with a knife and a firearm attacked the male victim as he was about to leave the house. A fight ensued and both the male and female victim sustained minor injuries. Suspects fled with cash.

<br><br>In the Free State a woman leaves her farm after a brutal attack:
Amidst the George Floyd incident which was hijacked by Antifa and their Soros backed globalist Alliance partners, and despite Covid19 lockdown, which seems not to affect rioters and looters, brutal farm murders and attacks in South Africa continue unabated. The mainstream media in South Africa ignores it and Cyril Ramaphosa lied in New York claiming that there are no farm murders. He said it doesn’t exist. But it does and for the victims it is very real and they suffer the traumatic after effects until the day they die. Sometimes the occupant of the farm has no option to leave because it simply became too dangerous to continue. With farm prices down, they have to accept a pittance for the farm that they have worked for a lifetime or that has been in the family for centuries. We share such a story:
<br><br>A Free State woman, Wilma Swanepoel (66) who was left for dead in an unused cooling room after she was attacked and stabbed on the farm near Bothaville in March of this year, says she has to leave farming life after 47 years and live in town now as she lives in fear because her attackers got bail. She moved to a house in town this week and says the tears come easily these days as she has to give up her old life. She was stabbed 11 times, straight through to the lungs, on Sunday 22 March 2020 after she was ambushed at the farm gate around 17:45. The 2 attackers took 2 firearms and money from the house and left Swanepoel in the unused cooling room for dead.
<br>
She was only found in that room 14 hours later when her daughter came looking for her. Swanepoel said she felt she was drowning in her own blood and that she could not move. She sat against the wall the whole night, kept in place by the sticky blood she was losing. A farm worker, Phineas Mototo, helped to load Swanepoel in her daughter’s car but he was later pointed out by other farm workers as being an accomplice in the attack! Mototo showed the Police where the firearms were buried. The 2 other attackers were also arrested by Police. Only one attacker was kept in detention because he has other cases, but Mototo and the third attacker were given bail of a mere R3,000 each.
<br><br>Swanepoel says she feels the State should have opposed bail for the other 2 attackers as well. She is still very traumatized and says the attackers know where she lives. She was in hospital for 8 days and stayed with her daughter since then. She only went to the farm in the company of others since the attack.

WHY HATRED OF WHITES IS HERE TO STAY

WHY HATRED OF WHITES IS HERE TO STAY

Written by:
Ilana Mercer

Not so long ago, mere mention of the deliberate murder of whites in South Africa—country folk and commercial farmers, in particular—was called “racist.” “Raaacist!” the media collective brayed when candidate Trump retweeted a related “white genocide” hashtag.

It’s still “racist” to suggest that the butchering of these whites, almost daily, in ways that beggar belief, is racially motivated. Positively scandalous is it to describe the ultimate goal of a killing spree, now in its third decade, thus: the ethnic cleansing of white, farming South Africa from land the community has cultivated since the 1600s.

Be thankful for small mercies: At least the international media monopoly is finally reporting facts, such as that just the other day Andre and Lydia Saaiman, aged 70, were hacked to death in Port Elizabeth. (Imagine being chopped up until you expire.)

Or, that the elderly Bokkie Potgieter was dealt a similar fate as he tended his small, KwaZulu-Natal holding. Potgeiter was butchered during the October “Black Monday” protest, which was a nation-wide demonstration to end the carnage. Internationally reported as well were the facts of Sue Howarth’s death. The 64-year-old pharmaceutical executive was tortured for hours with … a blowtorch.

This black-on-white murder spree has been ongoing since a dominant-party political dispensation (mobocracy) was “negotiated in my homeland for South Africans. (Learn about “The American Architects of The South-African Catastrophe.“) But while the criminal evidence is at last out in the open, the motive for these hate crimes is only mumbled about for fear of offending the offenders.

In South Africa we find a criminal class, born into freedom after 1994, that burns with white-hot hatred for whites.

Why?

The South African state’s stout indifference to the plight of whites does not exist in a void. Witness the steady, anti-white venom the dominant-party cobra-head, the ANC, spits out. “The de facto situation is that whites are under criminal siege explicitly because of their race,” writes a South African historian, cited in “Into the Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa” (2011).

“The black criminal collective consciousness understands whites are now historical fair game.”

The physical, existential vulnerability of white South Africans flows from a confluence of historical antecedents that have placed them in a uniquely precarious position. “The white minority surrendered political dominance in return for non-racial constitutional safeguards.” By forswearing control over the state apparatus, whites ceded mastery over their destiny, vesting their existential survival in a political dispensation: a liberal democracy.

In a needlessly optimistic assumption, whites imagined blacks too would be bound by the same political abstractions, and would relinquish race in favor of a constitutional design as an organizing principle in the society they now controlled.
Having “surrendered without defeat,” for a tepid peace, Europeans are, moreover, particularly and uniquely vulnerable within this political dispensation because of their history on the continent. Remedial historical revisionism notwithstanding, South Africa—with its space program and skyscrapers—was not the product of the people currently dismantling it. Rather, it was the creation of British and Dutch settlers and their descendants.

For what they’ve achieved and acquired—and for the original sins of apartheid in South Africa; slavery in America—whites are the objects of envy and racial enmity.

The observations of liberal, African-American journalist Keith Richburg are particularly pertinent here. Richburg believes that on the Dark Continent, tribal allegiance trumps political persuasion and envy carries the day. He cites the fate of the Tutsi—an alien, Nilotic African people, who formed a minority in Rwanda and Burundi—among the Hutu who are a Bantu people.

The Hutu have always resented the tall, imposing, attractive Tutsis, who had dominated them on-and-off since the 15th century. When Hutus picked up machetes to slash to bits nearly a million of their Tutsi neighbors in the 1994 Rwandan genocide, they were, on a deeper level, contends Richburg, “slashing at their own perceived ugliness, as if destroying this thing of beauty, this thing they could never really attain, removing it from the earth forever.”

Are shades of this impulse alive in the savagery inflicted on the European “settlers” of South Africa (and Zimbabwe and the Congo before them)? Who can say for sure? This much I know: Empowering political majorities in Africa has helped, not hindered, the propensity of hostile masses to exact revenge on helpless minorities.

It would be a mistake to believe, as the American ruling Idiocracy preaches, that minorities in the US—soon to form a majority—will relinquish race and tribe as unifying principles, in favor of the US’s constitutional design.

Like South Africa, America is a creation of (northwest) European settlers. And it is in Man’s nature to dislike those who are unlike him—all the more so when they, as a group, have accomplished what he has not.
