More Gruesome Murders in the Limpopo Province

South Africa is fighting an increasingly bloody war against murdering savages who have doubled the number of white farmers they have killed in a year to further the government’s urge to exterminate white landowners in the Limpopo Province.

The above paragraph was adapted from the opening lines of an article entitled, South Africa wages war on ruthless rhinoceros poachers.

The opening paragraph reads: “South Africa is fighting an increasingly bloody war against poachers who have doubled the number of rhinos they have killed in a year to feed a soaring demand for rhino horn from Asian organised crime syndicates.”

As I’ve mentioned before on this blog, Has South Africa Gone to Hell?, it seems that people would rather gather in their droves to save the rhino, than save their own kind. While saving rhinos is also important, I believe that saving our farmers lies a couple of notches higher on the priority-scale. The ANC government however does not regard the saving of farmers as a priority task, because they are White, and that is the stark reality of the matter!

The ANC completely destroyed the commando system that used to protect people in the rural areas, and phased it out between the years 2003 and 2008 because of the ‘supposed’ role it played in the apartheid era. Since then things have gone from bad to worst, and no one knows when (and if) it will ever end!

A recent news report, dated 2010-03-02, mentions that farmers in the Limpopo region are once again insisting on the reinstatement of the commando system after three people were murdered in the Limpopo Province. The uproar arose as a result of the gruesome murders of Ron Smith, Etienne Cammaerts and Paul Dunn. A detailed Afrikaans news report dealing with these incidents can be viewed here.

A Triple Murder in Vivo:

I was shocked to read the news today that another elderly couple and one of their workers were killed on a farm near the town of Vivo. I was shocked because as I happen to be acquainted with people living in the area, and immediately phoned them to hear if they were still alive.

I learned that the murdered couple were Pieter Blomerus (Blom) van der Lith, and his wife Henna. Both were in their 60’s, and were well-known by the couple I am familiar with. (I apparently met them many years ago when I was much younger, and when they were farming in Heilbron, but I cannot recall what they looked like.) Their bodies were apparently discovered by a person who visited the farm on Tuesday morning to buy Lucerne , a crop grown for stock feed. It is suspected that the murders took place sometime over the weekend. Click here to read the news report dealing with this incident.

These latest murders occurred about two weeks after the murders of Johan and Annelise Greyvensteyn of Musina (Messina), aged 54 and 52. They were found murdered in their vehicle on Thursday morning (4 Nov. 2010), next to a railway line under a bridge on their smallholding. Click here for the news report.

When will it end?

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.
