Another savage attack on a family - Polokwane!

Polokwane (Old Pietersburg) – Limpopo Province – South Africa

When is this merciless sadistic slaughter of South Africa’s citizens ever going to end? What did this poor family do to deserve this? A 40-year old man was beaten to death during the early hours of Saturday morning; his wife brutally gang-raped, and their innocent little 4-year old daughter seriously assaulted. Nothing was taken from the house, -- so now the police are baffled because there’s no motive. PLEASE!!!! There is ALWAYS a motive! Don’t they teach these things at the South African Police College?

The Tragic News Report…

A man was beaten to death while his wife was gang raped and their four-year-old daughter seriously assaulted in the early hours of Saturday morning, Limpopo police said.

"It is believed a gang of 15 men entered the family's house on a plot at Dalmada, outside Polokwane at 3.30am," said Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe.

The gang tied up the 40-year-old man and beat him to death.

Five men raped the man's wife before turning on the couple's four-year-old daughter and seriously assaulting her.

Ngoepe said the motive for the attack was unknown and nothing was taken from the house.

The wife and her daughter were take to a nearby hospital after residents alerted police about the incident.

Ngoepe described the woman as being "too traumatised" to give a statement to the police.

No arrests have been made and anyone with information can contact 10111. – Sapa

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
