Four Farm Murders and Five Farm Attacks in 22 Days – South Africa


Murdered farmer: Mr. Francois du Toit
Picture sourced from Beeld.com
According to Mr Henk den Graaf, spokesperson for TAU SA, there has already been 4 cases of farm related murders this year, and 5 incidents of farm related attacks. This is truly a disturbing tendency, considering that we are still in the first month of the New Year.

In the most recent attack, a farmer, a certified nutrition specialist, from Mpumalanga was murdered last night (22 Jan 2012), on the farm Kwalata nearby Roossenekal.

At time of posting no news reports in English could be found on the Internet, i.e. -- using the deceased’s name or his workplace as a search reference.

The following Afrikaans report was sourced online from landbou.com:

 
Voedingskundige vermoor in plaasaanval
 
Deur CORLI VAN DER MERWE
23 Januarie 2012

’n Boer en voedingskundige van Mpumalanga is gisteraand (22 Januarie 2012) doodgeskiet in waarskynlik die vierde plaasmoord vanjaar.

Mnr. Francois du Toit, wat as voedingskundige by Alzu Voere gewerk het, is op die plaas Kwalata naby Roossenekal in Mpumalanga aangeval. Mnr. Henk den Graaf, woordvoerder vir die TLU SA, sê Du Toit het sy honde op die plaas hoor blaf en gaan ondersoek instel. Hy is glo geskiet pas nadat hy die voordeur oopgemaak het.

Volgens ’n kollega van Du Toit by Alzu Voere wat nie sy naam genoem wil hê nie, was daar vermoedelik drie aanvallers by die plaasmoord betrokke. Hulle het Du Toit se vrou en kinders vasgebind en met vuurwapens en selfone in twee van die egpaar se voertuie gevlug. Die voertuie is later op die plaas teruggevind.

Geweldige slag
Volgens dié kollega was Du Toit ’n gewaardeerde kollega en is sy dood ’n geweldige slag vir die maatskappy. Intussen sê Van den Graaf dat die TLU SA baie bekommerd is oor die aantal plaasmoorde en -aanvalle wat tot dusver vanjaar plaasgevind het.

“Daar was sover vier plaasmoorde en vyf aanvalle volgens ons rekord. Drie van die plaasmoorde was in Noordwes en nou dié een in Mpumalanga. Dit is baie kommerwekkend. As die res van die jaar teen dieselfde trant voortgaan, gaan dit ’n swart en bloederige jaar wees,” sê Van den Graaf.

Die Suid-Afrikaanse Polisiediens kon nog nie bereik word vir kommentaar nie.

A commentator, by the name of Public Enemy Poqo, recently posted the following message on an older posting, "The Root Cause of Farm Murders in South Africa".

There are many root causes of this phenomenon. Let's start with the fact that white farmers are often racist and abuse and over-exploit the black farm-workers. Their frequent abuse of black farm-workers is well-documents in a Human Rights Watch report from 2001. The SAPS tends to not take assaults on black farm-workers seriously, but takes every alleged and actual crime against white farmers very seriously, which contradicts your and Censorbugbear's false theory that the farm attacks are part of some ANC conspiracy. Moreover, we may have an honest discussion about how over 300 years of hatred and brutality toward blacks produced some hatred and savagery in return.

I’ve already left my brief comment to this confused liberal idiot, but will appreciate some more input from readers, if you feel like it… The direct link to the comment is here.

If it weren't so tragic, I would simply ignore this hopelessly brainsick liberal dimwit's comments. His arguments defy simply anything worth discussing, even at the lowest intellectual level.

He may well qualify as speechwriter for any of the ANC bandits.

@Adrem

Maybe I should invest in one of Ann Coulter’s books, for example: How to Talk to a Liberal (If You Must), because I’m hopeless at this.

The Demonic Liberal Mob are Dangerous!

Typical anecdotal Bullshit from Greg Berchenko.
For instance he says:
“the fact that white farmers are often racist and abuse and over-exploit the black farm-workers. Their frequent abuse of black farm-workers is well-documents in a Human Rights Watch report from 2001.”
What “Fact”? You can start with quoting the report you refer to then provide names of abusive farmers and names of victims. I want names of farms, dates and times where these “facts” happened. I want evidence that will stand up in a court of law. I do not want your childish anecdotal bullshit of some pinky pork who slapped a baba-black sheep.
Such victims have the full right under the law to go and lay charges against the perpetrators. They do not have the right to take the law into their own hands and commit murder. Your bullshit accusations are nothing but hatespeech against whites.

You say…

“The SAPS tends to not take assaults on black farm-workers seriously, but takes every alleged and actual crime against white farmers very seriously,”

Again. Where is your proof of these accusations? Oh sorry you do not have any. So take a hike, you dimwitted twat.

“Moreover, we may have an honest discussion about how over 300 years of hatred and brutality toward blacks produced some hatred and savagery in return.”

300 years? Where did you suck that figure from? Your mother’s arse?
FYI whites first came into contact with blacks around 1770 on the Kei and Fish rivers... In the Eastern Cape. So that brings us to 242 years. Since then The Xhosas tried to wipe the whites out in nine Kaffir Wars and then tried to wipe themselves out by slaughtering all their cows and burning down their own crops to chase whites into the sea. Talk about hatred. In fact it was the generosity of the whites who saved the starving Xhosas from total self inflicted extinction. The Zulus tried at Weenen/Bloukranz to do the same smashing the heads of babies against wagons and later on at Bloodriver. The list is endless.

So where is your evidence of “Hatred and brutality towards blacks”. In fact it is the other way around. The history of the Boers are full of revenge and retaliatory attacks on blacks who committed untold brutality against whites such as at Makapaansgat. TIA Mysoa wrote an excellent piece on it.

Almost all the wars with blacks were defensive from the white's position and offensive from the black's position. Isandlwana, Rourkes drift, Blood river, etc...Blacks were the agressors and the overwhelming majority and the heavily outnumbered whites simply defended themselves.

Mindless bullshit, no proof as can be expected from an ignoramus who thinks he is an expert. What a liberal idiot. Better to just delete his crap than to waste your time.

Futher: You say, “white farmers are often racist and abuse and over-exploit the black farm-workers. Their frequent abuse of black farm-workers ….hatred and brutality toward blacks produced some hatred and savagery in return.”


So how do you explain that most of these farmers are not even killed by their farm workers, but by gangs of blacks from other areas?


How do you explain that the SA police believe that the motive in these attacks were “robbery” and not revenge for abuse as you suggested?


How do you explain the cases where white people have been tortured and raped for hours and then brutally murdered by blacks who were not farm workers and who stole almost nothing?


Point in case how do you explain the murder of 3 year old Willemien Potgieter recently? How did she exploit black farmworkers?


What “brutality and hatred” did she show towards blacks?

Well, of course the Politburo would like keep secrecy over such horrofic farm murders like this one... over the ongoing silent, one-by-one-genocide of Whites in SA.
Who reads anyway those Afrikaans newspapers... except the endangered Afrikaners theirself?

Ag ja, I almost forgot your liberal fan, Greg Berchenko from the USA who "studied SA history for a long time". His name sounds to me like one of the Russian-Jewish immigrants there.
I think that his idiotic comments simply belong into the spam folder of any blog. Not worthy for you guys to reply. He should not get that attention which he so desperately seeks.
He is just a little loser, an internet addicted mummies darling without real life.
Why else would a man spend all his worthy time with hammering stupid comments on the key-board all over the Internet?
Why does he not fight real against "the evil Apartheid" in Israel?

If TIA-Mysoa did not suggest that farm murders are a result of ANC conspiracy then I apologize for saying you did. However, CBB has definitely implied such a conspiracy in numerous posts. I do not have the exact citation for the Human Rights Watch report - but if you Google "farm worker abuse in South Africa" it is easy to find. My comment regarding black farm workers who suffer abuse is based on discussions I had with several blacks in Soweto about precisely why some of the murders are very brutal yet nothing is robbed. I would love to go back to SA and go into the rural areas, despite whatever risk this may entail, and talk to white farmers and black farm workers.

@ Public Enemy Poqo

Apology accepted!

As far as CBB is concerned… I’m sure Adriana Stuijt can speak for herself on these matters. She is one of the few individuals, living outside SA’s borders, who is passionately involved with the plight of South Africans who have become victims of various forms of human rights abuses, brought out by the inadequacies and/or incompetence of the ANC government. Politicians and the international msm have bluntly refused to recognize these ‘abuses’ (and farm murders) as a malfunction of government… I can thus can identify with Adriana’s frustration in this regard.

Soweto??? Soweto is not situated in a rural area, and regular inhabitants of Soweto are not farm labourers. Maybe you had a few discussions with some criminal elements living there… It still doesn’t make sense though, that they murder and torture people, simply because they experienced some-or-other form of abuse!

I’ve noticed that Human Rights Watch mentioned the following abuse:

Conditions that include on-site housing that is unfit for living,
Exposure to pesticides without proper safety equipment,
Lack of access to toilets or drinking water while working,
Efforts to block workers from forming unions.

Do these kind of abuses not occur in various places of employment all over the planet? Since when do these ‘abused’ people have the right to commit murder?

Figments of imagination like the TRC hearings proved. All anecdotal hearsay of rubbish accusations...


You say, “I do not have the exact citation for the Human Rights Watch report - but if you Google "farm worker abuse in South Africa" it is easy to find.”


Don’t give us homework to go and do. You should go and do your homework.


Like I said. Not a single note of proof of any of his wild accusations.


Come you useless piece of shit, point out the Apartheid mass graves and the gas chambers to me. Show me the showers and the ovens.


And when you are finished with that, explain to me why Israel supported us during Apartheid and helped us to develop an Atomic bomb, Twenty in fact. Why would Israel train our soldiers and let their scientist help the nationalist government of SA what you think was a “Nazi” government to develop chemical, biological and atomic weapons?
Would Israel and the Jews really help such despicable people when today they cringe when Iran wants to develop nuclear power for peaceful reasons.?”.


Maybe Israel understood the pious Boers far better than the rest of the world.

I’ve just read the tragic news on Mike’s blog that another farmer, 77 years old, has been shot dead last night (or possibly earlier) at his home in Stella, near Vryburg, North West Province.

The manner of his death does not point to an ordinary murder… It was performed “execution style” like some many other similar cases.

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.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

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.
