One year old baby Beaten into Coma by armed gang

Mazaan Kruger, 1, and her loving carer Francina Sekhu were brutally assaulted by an armed gang on Thursday – and the Afrikaans baby was so badly battered that her skull was crushed and she fell into a coma at once. She had to be resuscitated three times enroute to hospital. The baby girl and her loving carer now are fighting for their lives… only a laptop and a modem were stolen: all the other valuables were left untouched

Was this really just another ‘ordinary crime’? Or was this a hate-crime targetting an Afrikaans baby and her carer by black racists who stole very little of value – but were targetting the child deliberately?

The International Campaign to End Genocide lists South Africa's 'Boers and Refugees' as being at risk of "Genocide Politicide or Mass Atrocities at the hands of Black Racists' according to their "Countries at Risk 2010" ...and Boers have been listed as being at risk of genocide ever since 2002...

ANC - "Farmers to blame for Farm Attacks"

It's farmers' fault that many farms are unsafe, ANC MPs said on Tuesday.

André Botha, chair of Agri SA's policy committee on rural safety, said during a presentation to the portfolio committee on police that the derogatory statements about white farmers made by government officials and senior politicians, is one of the biggest challenges.

Patrick Chauke, ANC MP, dismissed this.

"Political statements are the least of your worries. Organised agriculture knows all too well that they are the cause of the problems. The police try their best, but the solution lies with you," he said to Botha.

Chauke carried on to argue that farm workers are abused, and that illegal immigrants are "held prisoner" by farmers.

"Most of the cattle theft is committed by the farmers themselves. And they sell alcohol to the people who live on the farm."

Aggressive farmers

According to Sindi Chikunga, ANC MP and committee chair, there are many kind-hearted farmers.

"But it's also a fact that there are many violently aggressive farmers and you (Agri SA) should publicly condemn them."

Allegations were also made that farmers are reluctant to become police reservists and don't want to get involved with community policing forums and sector policing.

Botha, who is a police reservist, told Beeld afterwards that he was extremely unhappy about what happened during the meeting. He dismissed and denied the statement that farmers don't want to help the police to secure their farms.

Genocide in South Africa

By Pamela Geller

The genocide of white South Africans is heating up.

Last week, South Africa's ruling African National Congress (ANC) finally told its members to stop singing the song "Kill the Boer" -- that is, murder white South Africans. ("Boer" is Afrikaans for "farmer," but colloquially, it is a disparaging term for any white South African.) This came after ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema defied a court ruling and kept singing the song (he still refuses to stop), and after Eugene Terreblanche, leader of the noxious and hateful neo-Nazi Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB), was found savagely bludgeoned to death at his farm in South Africa's North West province.

The international media focused on Terreblanche's white supremacism, showing his followers giving the Nazi salute at his funeral. No account of his murder or funeral spoke about Malema, "Kill the Boer," or black supremacism -- yet that is the really important story in South Africa today.

Whites in South Africa are keenly aware of the plans to kill them. They expect mass killings to begin very soon after the death of Mandela, but to tell this to the world is a waste of energy. More than three thousand white farmers have already been murdered, and Genocide Watch lists the Boer farmers in South Africa as victims of genocide -- but the media couldn't care less. Malema has praised Zimbabwe's murderous seizure of white-owned farms as "courageous and militant." White South Africans know what's coming.

Malema keeps singing the apartheid-era song "Kill the Boer" even though South Africa's highest court ruled that the song was hate speech (a decision the ANC is appealing, although they've asked their followers to stop singing it in the meantime; they've emphasized that they have not banned the song).

Under ANC rule, the government has stopped reporting the race of murder victims and the race of the murderer. This is because the international community (mainly was starting to notice the disproportionate number of whites being murdered in South Africa. The ANC stopped reporting the race of the victims of murder so there would be no way to track the number of black-on-white murders. Problem solved.

Attackers attempt to burn farm family alive

Attackers set a wooden house on fire on a farm near Carolina at the weekend, while a woman and her children were still inside. The armed attackers had tied the door with a piece of wire, trapping the victims inside.

The woman's parents were shot at when they rushed to their aid after being called from the main farm house 50 m away.

"They were bent on killing us. This had nothing to do with theft," said Cornelia de Wet, 32, from the farm Kwaggafontein, near Carolina, on the route between Johannesburg and Swaziland in South Africa's Mpunalanga province.

Mrs. de Wet awoke to the smell of smoke at about 22:00 on Saturday night. She saw the wall and the curtain in her room were in flames.

The attackers had poured diesel on the house before setting it on fire.

Mre. De Wet struggled to waken her two children Cornelia, 11, and Joey, 2 who had apparently been rendered unconscious by the smoke before finding the doors had been wired shut.

Initially attempts to contact local police were unsuccessful as they did not answer the phone.

Family survive farm attack

A farmer from Syferbult outside Ventersdorp was shot in the leg on Sunday morning and repeatedly stabbed with a knife during a farm attack in an area close to where Eugene Terre'Blanche, leader of the AWB, was murdered only 16 days earlier

Karel Griessel, 49, had opened the door to throw a bone to one of his dogs when three men overpowered him and one shot him in the leg.

His two daughters, aged 12 and 17, hid in the house, one calling their mother, Mr. Griessel's ex-wife, who hurried to the farm armed and together with her foreman and a retired police officer.

The attackers were still present when they arrived, but fled when shots were exchanged

Karel Griessel was taken by helicopter to the Netcare Milpark hospital in Johannesburg, where he's in a serious but stable condition.

Zimbabwe - Thirty Lost Years

Country mourns wasted opportunities at anniversary of the end of white rule

HARARE (Reuters) - Zimbabwe celebrates 30 years of independence this weekend but there is little hope for the future in a country only slowly recovering from economic collapse after three decades of President Robert Mugabe's rule.

Mugabe, now 86, spearheaded a guerrilla war against white minority rule in the then Rhodesia, but critics charge that he has ruined one of Africa's most promising economies since taking over power from Britain in 1980.

"It should be a landmark anniversary, but unfortunately for many people it is a time to count lost opportunities, and wasted lives," said Lovemore Madhuku, a political commentator and head of pressure group National Constitutional Assembly (NCA).

On Sunday Mugabe will lead freedom celebrations in Harare but many people are spooked by the prospect of his running for another term in elections expected in 2013. Mugabe said last month he would stand again if nominated by his ZANU-PF party.

Mugabe was last year forced into a power-sharing government with arch-rival Morgan Tsvangirai, now prime minister, after a political crisis sparked by a disputed general election in 2008.

While the fragile coalition has stabilised the economy and re-opened schools and hospitals, it is too broke to rebuild collapsed public infrastructure and provide clean water.

At least eight out of 10 potential workers are unemployed, and organised crime and corruption are increasing in the wake of a decade-long economic recession.

Despite criticism that the move will damage the economy and discourage foreign investment, Mugabe is pressing on with plans to turn over control of foreign firms to locals under a black empowerment drive.

Snippets -summary of main headlines in South Africa

From JP

Note: One of the main stories in the weekend newspapers was the claim that Eugene Terre'Blanche's murder had been triggered by sexual abuse of the young black men alleged to have killed him. If this story was true it was the best story of the week -an extraordinary twist in the tale of the AWB leader's life and death. Untrue, it was the worst, with the editors all falling for what would appear to be some kind of disinformation campaign. Recent retractions suggest it could be the latter. Either way, however, the story is significant and so has been included in these weekend listing.

The Saturday Star lead story claiming that a used condom had been found at the Terre'Blanche murder scene:

Baldwin Ndaba, Thabiso Thakali and Sheree Bega reported that "sources close to the investigation" claimed that "the murdered AWB leader's body had been found with his pants around his knees and a used condom on the floor, there has been speculation that he may have been involved in a sexual relationship with one of the two men, Chris Mahlangu, 27, and a 15-year-old, who are suspected of his murder. This will be the argument put forward by lawyers for the two when they appear in court next week for a bail application. Investigators placed the condom and its contents in a crime kit, which has been sent to the forensic unit in Pretoria for analysis."

The City Press and Sunday Times reports (see here and here) elaborating on the sex claims against Terre'Blanche:

The Sunday Times quoted Puna Moroko, attorney for the 28-year old accused Chris Mahlangu, as saying: "My instructions from my client are that there was some sodomy going on and it sparked the murder of Mr Terre'Blanche. This is going to form part of our defence during trial." Zola Majavu, the attorney for the 15-year old accused told the newspaper: "I have consulted with my client and I am satisfied that something shocking happened on that day. I will disclose fully what my client told me happened during trial."

City Press quoted a "source close to the investigation" as saying that "details were disclosed during a closed meeting between National Prosecuting Authority boss Menzi Simelane and his senior officials in Pretoria on Wednesday. The source said the prosecutors were briefed on details of the investigation, such as the discovery of a condom on Terre'Blanche's body and other sexual details."

The newspaper further stated that "three police sources in Ventersdorp, two working for crime intelligence [claimed] that the investigation included the possibility that Terre'Blanche was having sex with the 15-year old."

The sex claims contained in items 9 and 10 were almost too good to be true, and they were soon gleefully reported on around the world. However, the claim about the condom was almost immediately debunked by North West police spokeswoman Adele Myburgh. She told Sapa on Saturday: "There was no condom found on the scene of the late Mr Eugene Terre'Blanche. I'm prepared to put my neck in a guillotine and you can have a go at it if I have been lying." By Tuesday Moroko had retracted his earlier statement telling Beeld that the reports on the condom and sodomy had nothing to do with his client's case.

The Rapport (Sake24) article on how Match - Fifa's accommodation, travelling and ticket agency - had helped scupper South Africa's chances of attracting huge numbers of overseas fans to the soccer world cup:

Antoinette Slabbert writes that "It is becoming clearer that foreigners' interest in attending the tournament is less than hoped for. This is apparently because of the high cost - for which Match is partly responsible." Match had initially booked up 1,8m bed nights from the local tourism industry (as well as tens of thousands of seats on airline flights.) Its prices were determined in 2007 before the world economic crisis "when the market was frothy. A mark-up was added to these, which were already high, to determine the 2010 prices." Unable to sell them, Match has now dumped hundreds of thousands of "bed nights" back onto the market and local hotels are now scrambling to try and sell them. The newspaper quoted Hidde Salverda, 2010 coordinator of the Dutch soccer federation (KNVB), as saying that "disappointingly few Dutch soccer fans were coming to the tournament. The KNVB has scaled its original expectation of 10 000-12 000-10 down to 5 000. Match's grip on tournament tickets, which it offers together with travel packages, is the reason for the poor interest, Salverda said."

The Sunday Times interview with various (black) fellow former inmates of Terre'Blanche's at the Rooigrond Medium B Prison Farm:

Vincent Sereo, 50, in jail for murder and robbery told Shanaaz Eggington: "We were in the non-smoking cell. We ate together, exercised together and watched TV. I never saw any racism in him." Sereo described the former AWB leader as "a good man". "He was my friend. People might think that he just pretended to like black people because he was in jail and fearing for his life. This was not so. When he was released, we continued to be friends. He gave me all his (contact) numbers ... I could call him any time and if I was in Ventersdorp, I made time to see him." Another former cell mate, Euclid Moses, 36, told the newspaper. "He was deeply against sodomy, drugs and dagga smoking. He even gave up cigarettes. I'm shocked to see that people say that he had a relationship with one of his alleged killers. He has been set up. People will do anything for money and he is dead. He can't defend himself."

Richard Lapper's feature in the Financial Times (weekend edition) on growing Afrikaner disaffection in South Africa:

Lapper writes that the murder of AWB leader Eugene Terre'Blanch, the inflammatory rhetoric of Malema and an epidemic of farm murders has "crystallised a broader sense of disillusionment, and even betrayal, with post-apartheid South Africa among Afrikaners." It seems that even the most pro-ANC Afrikaners are becoming disillusioned. He quotes Sam de Beer, "who served as a minister in apartheid governments, helping negotiate transition to majority rule before ending his political career in the governing African National Congress", as saying there has been "an onslaught against farmers and old people. You can't open a newspaper without reading details of another murder. The Afrikaner is beginning to feel under threat. The circumstances are very, very bad." De Beer also talked about "growing disillusion and bitterness [among Afrikaners]. The promises of reconciliation have not been lived up to."

The City Press report on the open rebellion against Julius Malema at the ANYCL provincial electoral conference in Limpopo:

Piet Rampedi writes that the ANCYL president was "booed, jeered and prevented from addressing hundreds of delegates... at the Makhado FET (Further Education and Training) College outside ­Louis Trichardt." Malema eventually ordered the police to remove the rowdy supporters of the League's provincial leader, Lehlogonolo Masoga, precipitating a walk out. The newspaper notes that "Malema had earlier in the day chased around and beat another rival delegate with a chair for jeering him with a song. Malema had just ­arrived in Mathale's BMW as part of a four-vehicle convoy at a nearby venue where accreditation was being processed. The delegate, who did not want his name published for fear of a possible reprisal, later said: ‘He hit me with a chair for no apparent reason. I merely expressed my view as a young person. I did not insult him'."

The Sunday Times (Business Times) report that the ANC, or at least Treasurer General Mathews Phosa, wanted Chancellor House to exit from Hitachi Power Africa:

Phosa told Rob Rose that "We have advised Chancellor House of our desire to exit from Hitachi as quickly as possible, and they are in the process of doing so. My expectation is that this will be done in the next six weeks." He added that "as a shareholder, we can only give advice to Chancellor House." Whether the company would accept that advice was, it seems, open to question. Professor Taole Mokoena, the Chancellor House chairman, was quoted as saying: "We are an independent company and nobody tells the directors what to do."

Hermann Giliomee's feature in the Mail & Guardian on the life of AWB leader Eugene Terre'Blanche:

Giliomee notes that Terre'Blanche "was to a large extent a creation of the media. Particularly for foreign journalists he embodied the stereotype of uncouth, fanatical Boers prepared to plunge the country into a bloodbath to resist the inevitable victory of the black majority." In reality, the AWB "did not remotely have the capacity to act as an effective rebel force. The movement's actual support was insignificant. According to a previous head of the security police I interviewed for this article, there was an active membership of at most 2 000 men concentrated in the Western Transvaal and the passive support of 20 000 to 30 000 people."

In his political heyday Terre'Blanche had often played on acute Afrikaner fears that under a future ANC government there would be widespread criminal violence. Giliomee notes, Terre'Blanche's "murder in his own bed tragically confirmed the seemingly reckless predictions he had made during his career."

Rian Malan's article in The Telegraph (London) on the "chubby man-child" Julius Malema:

Malan says the ANCYL president's rhetoric is that of a Pere Ubu or Idi Amin. Malema's political significance is that he is "the point-man for a powerful ANC faction whose motive is greed and whose chosen weapon is racial demagoguery of the most primitive kind. The trouble is that this card trumps all others. Our underclass is huge, poorly educated and desperately poor. They know what happened in Zimbabwe, but even so, the prospect of loot is irresistible, and that's Malema's bait. Mandela gave them free houses. Mbeki gave them welfare grants, leading to a situation where five million taxpayers support 13 million indigents, with the total rising far more rapidly than our ability to pay. Now Malema and the faceless vultures behind him are offering them the rest. They are playing the death card, the Ace of Spades."

Jacob Zuma's statement, issued at a press conference on Saturday, in which he smacked down Malema:

The Sunday Times led with the story under the headline "Zuma berates ‘alien' Malema" as did the Sunday Independent under the headline "Shut Up! Zuma threatens Malema." City Press ran with the story on Page 1 headed "Zuma puts his foot down at last." It quoted a source as saying: "People must appreciate that the ANC is like an elephant. It walks slowly but when it puts its foot down you'll be in crutches."

15 men beat a farmer to death, gang rape his wife assault his daughter - Saturday morning in South Africa

Only hours after updating the figure representing the number of South African Farmers who have fallen victim top the on-going anti-white genocide in that benighted country, I have had to do so again as news of further death torture and cruelty has been brought to me.

In the early hours of this morning on their farm in Limpopo, 15 men tied up a 40 year old man and beat him to death before gang raping the man's wife before turning on the couple's four-year-old daughter and seriously assaulting her.

The farmer's widow and child were taken to a nearby hospital, where they are described as traumatised.

The motive of the attack remains unclear, and nothing was taken.

Two young men slain in their own homes

'My son died in my arms'

Cape Town Friday 16 April: A young Cape Town man, 23, bled to death in his father's arms on Friday after an early-morning attack by intruders.

Conrad Griss, of Hout Bay, died despite the frantic efforts by his father, Charles, to stem the flow of blood from his face, where he had been stabbed.

"I was sitting there with the blood pumping out," said the anguished computer businessman.

"I couldn't stop the bleeding, I tried to, but it was impossible."

Griss said he had been woken soon after 1.30am, when he heard dogs barking and his son's cries for help.

Killed in his own bed

Ernest Hoon (18)

The attack comes just days after 18 year old Ernest Hoon was shot dead in bed at his parents home.

Ernest, who was due to take his home schooling exams in two weeks was shot dead moments after getting into bed shortly after he, together with his father and sister had chased away three men who had tried to break into his family's smallholding.

It is believed that the killers, who had been chased off, returned to the house and waited for Ernest to get into bed.

Watching him through a partly opened curtain, one of the men - who has yet to be caught - pushed a gun through a window and opened fire on him.

The bullet struck Ernest in the elbow, then tore through his chest and stomach, fatally wounding him.

Screaming to his mother, Renette, that he had been shot and urging her to be careful, Ernest ran to the family's gun safe. He died as he was trying to get out a revolver which he wanted to use to protect his mother and sister.

NOTE: Ernest Hoon and his family lived on a smallholding in Leeuwfontein. Therefore Adriana Stuijt has included Ernest Hoon in the list of 3,337 Afrikaner farmers killed since 1987, and I have also included him in my tragic count bringing the the estimated number of farmers killed since the end of Apartheid in 1994 to 3,102

New racism grips South Africa


WE all know that racists - especially South African ones - are white. We also know that ending apartheid in South Africa in 1994 was a happy-ever-after story.

Now welcome to the brutal truth.

South Africa is sliding back into a new racial divide, perhaps even a new apartheid. And this time most of the racists and thugs are black.

What's more, it is also sliding into an anarchy so terrible that already almost 20,000 South Africans are murdered each year - a killing rate three times higher, pro rata, than Iraq's.

Terre'Blanche Killer "comfortable"

Supporters of the alleged killers assemble outside the court

The following is from a news report on published on Thursday and submitted by Dina:


Eugene Terre'Blanche's youngest alleged killer is happy and safe, while his jailed accomplice has his future in the hands of a maverick lawyer.

Both accused - 28-year-old Chris Mahlangu and a 15-year-old minor - abandoned their bail applications at the Ventersdorp Magistrate's Court yesterday, where they were making their second appearance since the murder.

The teenager, accused of murdering Terre'Blanche, traded his freedom for a bed, three meals a day, and the chance to attend school and watch TV at night.

The boy was supposed to apply for bail yesterday, but told his lawyer not to go ahead with the application because he was comfortable at the place of safety where he has been held since his arrest.

Lawyer Zola Majavu said the accused was having experiences he had never had before.

"He is sleeping on a bed for the first time in his life. He is also having three meals a day for the first time. He is also studying, something he was not doing while he was at his home, so there is no need to change the status quo.

"Even the social workers agree that he should be kept there. It is in his best interest that he stays there," Majavu said.

Asked if the teenager was aware that he would have to go back to his hard life if acquitted, Majavu said he was aware, but this would be dealt with it at the relevant time.



Moroko said Mahlangu would plead not guilty to all charges. He would argue that the two had argued over wages and he had acted in self-defence.

The lawyer confirmed he had abandoned claims of sodomy against Terre'Blanche, despite having earlier alleged that Mahlangu had been sexually assaulted.

The matter was postponed to May 10. Both accused are facing four charges: murder, housebreaking with intent, crimen injuria and attempted robbery.


Local community members arrived with placards reading "Hey boere stop killing our farm workers and stop raping our black women"; "Boerevolk is in heaven"; "Land for whites is a dream that should not happen"; and "The ANC is not responsible for Terre'Blanche's death".

A helicopter hovered above the court as the crowd of protesters grew throughout the morning and became louder, blowing whistles and vuvuzelas.

Recorded songs such as the banned Dubul' iBhunu (Shoot the Boer) were played over loudspeakers.

Retired Fire Brigade Chief killed on Small Holding

As reported on Ne Ultra and on Censorbugbear Reports, but, unsurprisingly not in the English language press, on Tuesday this week, retired Fire brigade chief Gert Pretorius was murdered on is small holding in Holgatfontein, where he had farmed for the last twelve years following a long firefighting career. Gert Pretorius was allegedly killed by one of his farm workers who had earlier assaulted his wife.

Mrs Anel Pretorius had been tending to the week-old child of one of her farm workers when the child's father entered with a gun and threatened her demanding the keys to the safe. The man then beat Mrs. Pretorius and tied her up.

After rifling the safe, the man made his way to the pig pens where Gert Pretorius was feeding his livestock and shot the elderly man at point blank range.

The worker, together with his wife and child fled in the Prtorius's truck.

Even the pets are not spared

They say that one of the early signs of a potential sadistic serial killer is that they start by torturing and killing domestic pets. That is why a largely unreported phenomenon which has been going on in South Africa for some while.

If the British people can not find it in their hearts to care about the terrible deaths inflicted on white human beings, will they instead care for the vast numbers of white people's pets who are being sadistically killed? Or will they consider them, as they seem to consider the slaughtered and tortured white children responsible by birth for the sins of Apartheid?

The following are a random sample of news stories have appeared in the South African press over the last year:

More twists in the Terreblanche killing

IN ANOTHER bizarre twist to the Eugene Terre’Blanche murder the nephew of the slain AWB leader now alleges that the family’s domestic worker had earlier been killed after she allegedly uncovered a plot to have his uncle killed.

Andre Nienaber, who is married to the daughter of Andries Terre’Blanche, a brother of the murdered AWB leader, yesterday also dismissed allegations linking his uncle’s death to a homosexual crime.

“This is just another opportunity to crucify Eugene,” said Nienaber, who acts as spokesperson for the Terre’Blanche family.

Nienaber maintains his uncle’s death was planned.

He alleged that the domestic worker of the Terre’Blanche family, who died on March29, was killed because she had information about a plot to have Terre’Blanche murdered.

The worker, Rosie Nsako, who was buried last Thursday, a day before her employer’s funeral, was employed by the family all her working life.

Nienaber said there were allegations that Nsako’s neck was broken after she stumbled on the plot to have his uncle killed.

However, Rapport newspaper yesterday reported that the police had been in Ventersdorp last week to investigate Nsako’s death and the allegations that she had been murdered on Terre’Blanche’s farm.

The investigation, according to Rapport, found that she had collapsed on the road to Ventersdorp and died a day later in a Klerksdorp hospital.

Meanwhile the church minister who buried AWB leader Eugene Terre’Blanche on Friday told the Dispatch he has hidden a statement made to him by a paramedic who arrived at the murder scene on the farm where Terre’blanche was killed.

Ventersdorp paramedics chief Robert van Heerden, who made the trip to the farm, has now been silenced by his bosses after he had earlier, in an exclusive interview with the Daily Dispatch, expressed concern about the murder scene.

South Africa in the Press this week


David Smith's article in The Guardian (London) on ANCYL President Julius Malema, the most "feared figure in South African politics":

Smith, the newspaper's Africa correspondent, recounts how he "shared a dinner table in a ballroom at the Michelangelo Hotel in Johannesburg last week with several black middle-class South Africans including a lawyer, a marketing executive, a political consultant and a public relations specialist. The conversation was varied and jovial, but weighted with the dread that Zimbabwe's ruined economy and bloodsoaked politics might be a glimpse of South Africa's own future. This came from a sense that Malema is in fact on to something, giving a voice to the millions of black South Africans who feel cheated by the promise of multiracial democracy."

The Daily Dispatch report on how ANC leaders had engineered the victory of Malema-supporters in a series of ANCYL regional conference in the Eastern Cape:

Mayibongwe Maqhina quotes party sources as saying "part of the reason for Malema's convincing victories was because the nomination procedure for top district posts was changed from the usual secret ballot to a show of hands - under the watchful eyes of senior ANC leaders. Malema himself witnessed voting at the OR Tambo conference. Malema's supporters so far command support from three of the youth body's regions - Amathole, OR Tambo and Cacadu . Andile Lungisa, Malema's deputy [and rival] who is tipped to challenge for the top position, has backing from the Nelson Mandela Metro, while Alfred Nzo, Chris Hani and Joe Gqabi regions have yet to decide."

The Beeld report on the murder of the matric pupil Ernst Hoon, 18, on his family's small holding in Leeuwfontein north-east of Pretoria:

Virginia Keppler reports that Hoon was shot by robbers through a (just) broken bedroom window at 3am in the morning. The attackers then jumped through the window, took his laptop and fled. "Deon Hoon, Ernst's father, said his son then stumbled into the bathroom, where he collapsed. Ernst's mother, Brenette, 51, and his sister, Kalike, 21, tried in vain to resuscitate him, but he died of the gunshot wound."

S'Thembiso Msomi's column in The Times (April 7) on how Malema's visit to Zimbabwe, and support for Robert Mugabe, was damaging President Jacob Zuma's mediation efforts:

Msomi notes that Malema's statements in Zimbabwe, including his endorsement of Mugabe and attack on the MDC, "can hardly enhance Zuma's image as an honest broker in the conflict between Mugabe and Tsvangirai." This, in turn, put the South African president's efforts at risk. Msomi concludes: "Since taking over, Zuma has had one thing working in his favour: the MDC and other role players genuinely believed him to be an impartial mediator committed to finding a lasting solution to the country's problems. But this confidence in him will soon evaporate if he does not watch the actions and utterances of those with strong ties to him."

The Beeld report (Monday, April 4) on the circumstances of AWB leader Eugene Terre'Blanche's murder:

Linda de Beer writes that two local policemen came across Terre'Blanche's body in the house on his farm Witrandjiesfrontein. A panga and knobkerrie were found next to his body. This was after the police received a call over a reported attack on the farm. The report quoted Captain Adéle Rautenbach, police spokeswoman in the North West province, as saying that all indications were that he was attacked in his sleep. Beeld claimed that the two suspects were arrested shortly after the murder, as they were walking along a gravel road in the district.

This account stands in marked contrast to that contained in the front page report in the Sunday Times the previous day. This quoted a "police source" as saying that the suspects claim to have acted in self-defence after an altercation over unpaid wages; that they had not fled the scene; and, were still in possession of the "knobkerrie and panga" when they were found.

Clearly, someone is not telling the truth, but who are they and what is their agenda?

The Sowetan report on a plot by the ‘nationalist' faction within the ANC NEC and Youth League to remove much of the party's top leadership at the next party conference:

The newspaper reports that if the Fikile Mbalula camp get their way only Jacob Zuma and Kgalema Motlanthe would be returned to their positions in the ANC ‘top six'. "A member of the lobby group said the current leadership was the result of compromises made in Polokwane to oust former president Thabo Mbeki. ‘We compromised on a number of positions and that is the main reason why the ANC is being ambushed by the left. Everyone knows that Gwede Mantashe was a compromise at Polokwane'." The Mbalula camp prefers the following leaders: President - Jacob Zuma; Deputy President - Kgalema Motlanthe; National Chairperson - Bathabile Dlamini or Angie Motshekga; Treasurer-general - Jeff Radebe; General Secretary - Fikile Mbalula; Deputy Secretary - Bathabile Dlamini or Angie Motshekga."

Tim Cohen's article in Business Day on the extraordinary parallels between Malema and Terre'Blanche:

Cohen observes of the two men: "their techniques, their style, their general ham- fistedness, their faux-populism, their carefully constructed ‘outrageousness', their bizarre media appeal, all come from the same political copybook. The difference is that TerreBlanche's bubble had long ago been pricked, and Malema's appears to be inflating at extraordinary speed, with the bewildered and stunned assistance of the African National Congress's (ANC's) chronic do-nothing culture. There was a time when TerreBlanche was as feared at Malema is today. He was recognised as ‘extreme', yet he was also given credence as a tip of the iceberg - a symbol of what Afrikaners would be if they gave in to their fears.... It's interesting to recall how TerreBlanche collapsed under the weight of his own falsities. Perhaps this is Malema's ultimate fate."

The report in Die Burger (April 7) on the "increasing unease" within the ANC at the conduct of Malema:

The newspaper reported, however, that "nobody - including ministers, senior alliance leaders and MPs - is prepared to be quoted openly and directly about their fears." A senior alliance member, who requested anonymity, told the newspaper: "He (Malema) thinks he's untouchable and he behaves that way. The problem is that there's a large group of unemployed, disillusioned youth who relate to his populist statements and melodrama." Another anonymous source "with direct access to Zuma said that Malema often uses his influence with the president when the ANCYL leader finds himself facing internal pressure. ‘If the NEC is meeting and he knows he's in trouble, he calls Zuma to explain his side of the story and in so doing takes the sting out of any reprimand'."

“Die white man! Viva Malema!”

"Die white man! Viva Malema!”

Shouted 4 armed robbers whilst attacking a white family during a farm attack East of Pretoria at the weekend.

39 year old Capt. Leon Johan Koekemoer, his wife, Annelie (37), and their 3 children together with their lodger were the victims of a terrifying home invasion when intruders broke in through a window in the lounge after forcing open the burglar bars.

The intruders fled when the family fought back shooting one of the number dead

The attack which the police are investigating as attempted murder, follows a well publicised incident where ANC youth leader Julius Malema, defied a court order and sang the ANC battle song “kill the Boer”

Oddly enough news stories relating to this attack on both Bleed and News 24 seem to have vanished, however, Censor Bugbear has a full version of the original news story, together wuth evidence of additional calls for genocide against the Boers, which can read by clicking here

An ignoble and corrupt parasite


Tomorrow, Thursday 8 Apri,l the World Bank will decide whether to grant Eskom a $3.75 billion loan to finance Hitachi Africa’s building of a coal-fired power station in Medupi, Limpopo.

This decision has serious implications for the health of South African democracy.

Hitachi Africa is 25% owned by the ANC’s investment arm, Chancellor House. This means that the ANC has a R5.8 billion stake in the deal, from which it will make an estimated R1-billion clear profit – enough to fund its election campaigns and the lifestyles of its leaders for years to come.

If the loan is granted and the deal goes through, no opposition party may ever be in a position to compete fairly with the ANC again. The ANC will entrench its single party dominance and, in doing so, gravely weaken our democracy.

How can a political party in control of the state have a stake in a multibillion rand state tender?

This was achieved through the dual role of a key player on the tender committee – the former Chairman of the Eskom Board, Valli Moosa, who is also a member of the ANC’s National Executive Committee. Moosa did not declare this conflict of interest, and he didn’t recluse himself from the tendering process.

This was enough to warrant an investigation by the Public Protector, following a formal complaint submitted by the DA when the story first broke in February 2008.

The Public Protector found that there was a clear conflict of interest, and that Valli Moosa had acted improperly. However, the Public Protector concluded that the awarding of the contract was not affected by Moosa’s conduct. Furthermore, he ruled that the awarding of the contract was not unlawful due to the absence of legislation regulating business between political parties and government institutions.

This ruling is bizarre. If there is a conflict of interest that is not declared, the process should be declared null and void. There is no way that the Public Protector – or anyone else for that matter – can say that the decision was taken in the public interest rather than the ANC’s interest.

Lawful or not, the awarding of the contract to an ANC front company is corruption on a grand scale. Whatever way you look at it, it is the abuse of public office for political gain. If this scourge of “legal corruption” is not stopped in its tracks, democracy in South Africa will wither and die. It is as simple as that.

Former President Thabo Mbeki recognised this back in 2005. In a moment of candour, he said of the ANC’s corrupt tendencies:

“What we do in this regard will define whether our organisation, the ANC, continues to maintain its noble character as a servant of all the people of South Africa, or degenerates into an ignoble, blood-sucking and corrupt parasite, an enemy of an immensely heroic people.”

The ANC today, under Jacob Zuma, is taking South Africa close to the vampire state that Mbeki warned about. And, by acting in its own self interest instead of the public interest, the ANC has become an enemy of the people.

Tenders are not awarded on the ability of the winning bidder to do the job, but on the basis of the company’s connections with the ANC. This is why Julius Malema was awarded R140 million contracts to build bridges that fall apart. This it is why Hitachi Africa got the contract to build coal-fired power stations.

We fully support the need for a World Bank loan to build the power stations so that we can prevent another electricity crisis.

But the ANC’s corrupt involvement in this deal has forced South Africans into an invidious position. South Africans must choose between the need for sustained energy and the future of democracy.

According to the World Bank’s own protocols, tit should not even consider this loan because it will directly benefit a political party. The protocol prohibiting this is designed precisely to prevent the kind of power abuse witnessed here.

Suggestions are emerging that the World Bank will only agree to fund a portion of the deal from which the ANC will not benefit. But this cannot be assured unless the ANC is removed as a shareholder in Hitachi Africa, and a stakeholder in any part of the power station deals. As the arms deal scandal has shown, these complex deals have many layers, involving primary contracts and subcontracts that can be used to disguise major corruption. The World Bank must have no part in a deal from which a political party stands to profit in any form.

On Tuesday next week Helen Ziller will meet the Head of the World Bank in South Africa, Ruth Kagia, to discuss the loan. The case will be made that South Africa needs this loan to build the coal-fired power stations. Indeed, the DA was calling for this type of infrastructure investment years before the advent of load-shedding.

It will be pointed out that by granting the loan, the World Bank would effectively be bankrolling the ANC, in contravention of every principle of democratic practice, and against the World Bank’s own protocols. It will be proposed that, should the World Bank be willing to grant this loan, it should do so only on the condition that the ANC and its front companies divest themselves entirely of any stake in Hitachi Africa, or any of the sub-contractors in this deal.

Helen Ziller will present this case to every major World Bank member involved in making the decision before its meeting next Thursday. In this regard a meeting will be held with the US Ambassador and the British High Commissioner on Tuesday next week.

. The DA is currently consulting its lawyers to assess its legal options should the deal go through. It simply cannot allow the ANC to award multibillion rand tenders to itself.

The ANC is well aware of how the apartheid government fostered corrupt relationships with big business to cement its electoral dominance. In 1997, when the ANC was almost bankrupt, outgoing ANC treasurer Makhenkesi Stofile set out the ANC’s new approach to fundraising at its national conference. He said:

“There were a number of options (available to the ANC). One was the National Party option, which formed companies and gave them contracts which produced a steady basis of income. We didn’t think that would be a good thing to do. We then considered joint ventures and also thought that they would not be viable and would be the source of conflict. We opted for the role of facilitators for black business in the country. There are black businesses whom we have been able to turn to when we’re in trouble”.

BEE legislation soon followed and with it the creation of instant millionaires, indebted to the ANC. It was this small group of politically connected businesspeople, who would fund the ANC.

But it did not stop there. The ANC soon followed the National Party’s example. Why simply rely on the donations of those who benefited from state contracts, when the ANC could get those contracts directly? And so Chancellor House was established – a front company for the ANC itself. The purpose of Chancellor House is to enable the ANC in government to channel contracts to the ANC in business in order to fund the ANC as a political party and enrich its leaders. This, exactly, is the pathway from cronyism, to corruption and the criminal state.

The DA will do everything it can to stop this power abuse now and in the future. Political parties exist to serve the people, not to abuse state power to enrich themselves and their leaders. It is high time the ANC learned this. And it is time that more people began questioning the ANC’s ill-gotten fortune and moral bankruptcy.

Eugene Terreblanche latest farm murder victim

South African white nationalist leader Eugene Terreblanche has been murdered, local media reports say.

Mr Terreblanche was beaten to death on his farm in the north-west of the country, the reports said.

Mr Terreblanche and his Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (Afrikaner Resistance Movement - AWB) came to prominence in the early 1980s.

He became the champion of a minority determined to stop the process that was bringing apartheid to an end.

Zim no go area: German business group

Zim no go area: German business group

Harare - A German business delegation has cancelled a visit to Zimbabwe, put off by Harare's controversial plan to force foreign-owned firms to cede controlling stake to local blacks. The German African Business Association (GABA) said the trip had been called off because Zimbabwe has become a "no go area" for foreign investors following promulgation of the empowerment laws that give foreign-controlled business up to 2015 to sell majority stake to indigenous Zimbabweans or face punitive levies and taxes from the government. "Under the current circumstances Zimbabwe is a 'no go' area for foreign investment," said Andreas Wenzel regional manager for southern Africa for the GABA that was helping organise the visit. Wenzel held out hope that the delegation investors from Hamburg and the German Southern African Chamber of Industry and Commerce in Johannesburg could still come to Zimbabwe at a later stage this year but said this would depend on the outcome of consultations within the Harare power-sharing government over the empowerment laws.

Cancellation of the German visit comes a week after Norway announced that it was putting on hold a US$1,5 million project to assist Zimbabwe's agriculture sector because of the indigenisation law. Zimbabwe Indigenisation Minister Saviour Kasukuwere announced last month that all foreign-owned businesses, including banks, mines and factories must offload at least 51 percent of their shareholding to locals by March 2015. Kasukuwere, a top loyalist of President Robert Mugabe, gave companies up to the end of this month to submit to him plans showing how they will transfer shareholding to black Zimbabweans. The indigenisation rules have been a source of controversy and besides rattling foreign investors have further divided Zimbabwe's shaky coalition government with Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai's MDC party pushing to have the laws repealed or drastically changed. While the coalition government has said it is reviewing the indigenisation laws, Mugabe and his Zanu PF party – who still wield greater power in the unity government – insist the empowerment drive must go ahead, ignoring warnings that this could scare away foreign investors whose funds Zimbabwe needs to rebuild its shattered economy. Critics fear Mugabe's Zanu PF wants to press ahead with transferring majority ownership of foreign-owned companies as part of a drive to reward party loyalists with thriving businesses.

The legion of white victims

Elderly couple survive Farm attack

An 85-year-old grandfather from Soutpansdrift in the North-West fought with his bare hands with three armed intruders to protect his life partner, even after they shot and stabbed him.

Dawie Meintjes and his life partner, Maria de Beer, 81, were attacked at 01:00 on Monday morning in their farm outside Brits.

De Beer was struck by shrapnel from the bullet on three places on her right leg, Mr. Meintje was shot in the hand and also stabbed in the arm

Full report

Thankfully Dawier and Maria survived their ordeal, and for once it has not been necessary for me to update the tragic figure at the top right hand of this blog.

Elderly woman dies in grisly attack

However, in another incident police are investigating the murder of 80 year old Helina Kotze after her body was found with her wrists and knees tied up at her home in Potchefstroom on Tuesday.

Ms. Kotze's throat had been slit and her wrists and knees were tied up with kitchen napkins and sellotape.

New report

As Ms. Kotze was not a member of the farming community I can not legitimately include her murder amongst the farm killings, she is another of the many urban whites who are raped and murdered in South Africa each year, but of whom no accurate count is available.

Reports supplied by Dina

Comment: People often write to me and ask why whites stay in South Africa given the increasing violence being perpetrated against them. However, as with the cases above, a significant number of the victims are elderly people in their 70's and 80's, frail vulnerable people in their twilight years who have known no other home and have no remaining contacts outside South Africa. Most are no longer in a position to start a new life in a foreign land.

Also, at least 10% of the white South African population, some 450,000 people, now live in dire poverty as a direct result of black favouring affirmative action which has deprived them of their jobs and their homes. These whites struggle to feed their children on a daily basis, not only is the price of the air fair out of the country beyond their means, but no Western country would take them in.

Thanks to TVJ for sending me to a link to this item in Business Report regarding the growing number of white squatter camps in South Africa.

Meanwhile that remarkable lady Adriana Stuijt who runs the Censor Bugbear blog continues to report on the plight of whites in South Africa, including those now living in poverty. Here are links two of her recent postings on this subject:

I highly recommend Adriana Stuijt's two blogs Censor Bugbear Reports and Afrikana Genocide Archives for the prolific and well researched reporting of news which the Western media actively seeks to hide.
