Pretoria - A University of Pretoria professor is heartbroken and still fighting back tears after she saw her husband shot in the heart in front of her at their home in Nicolson Street, Brooklyn on Wednesday.

Gerhard Slabbert, 53, a consulting engineer, died shortly afterwards.

A 13-year-old girl was shot in the leg in the same street in an attack by armed men on Saturday night.

Professor Margaret Slabbert, 51, of the university's visual arts department spoke of her sorrow on Thursday as she recounted what had happened at about 22:00 on Wednesday.

The Slabberts had returned after taking their sons's car to him.

Slabbert said: "When we turned into the drive of our panhandle property, a man was climbing over the wall."

"I was driving. My husband got out of the car and asked the man what he wanted.

"When my husband asked him a second time what he was looking for, I saw the man take something out of his pocket. It was a firearm.

Raced to hospital

"Unfortunately, my husband realised it too late. The moment he saw what was happening, he tried to jump back into the car.

"The guy shot him in the heart," she said.

With her husband on the seat next to her, Slabbert reversed up the driveway and sped to a nearby hospital.

A doctor there told her it was "over".

Slabbert said: "There was no reason for the man to shoot my husband. He could have just run off.

"Gerhard was a wonderful person. Everyone was mad about him.

"All that I know is that my children must get out of here (South Africa) as soon as they can," she said.

’n Professor van die Universiteit van Pretoria (UP) se man is by hul huis in Nicolsonstraat in Brooklyn, Pretoria, voor haar oë in die hart geskiet.

Mnr. Gerhard Slabbert (53), ’n konsultant-ingenieur, het kort daarna beswyk.

’n 13-jarige meisie is Saterdagaand in dieselfde straat deur gewapende mans in die been geskiet.

Prof. Margaret Slabbert (51), van die UP se visuele kunste-departement, het gistermiddag hard probeer om die trane te keer terwyl sy vertel het van die toneel wat hom eergisteraand omstreeks 22:00 afgespeel het.

Die Slabberts het teruggekom van hul seun af waar hulle sy motor gaan afgee het.

“Toe ons by die oprit van ons pypsteelhuis inry, was ’n man besig om oor die muur te klim,” het prof. Slabbert gesê.

“Ek het bestuur. My man het uit die motor geklim en vir die man gevra wat hy soek. Toe my man hom die tweede keer vra wat hy soek, het ek gesien hoe die man iets uit sy sak haal.

“Dit was ’n vuurwapen.

“Ongelukkig het my man dit te laat besef. Die oomblik toe my man besef het wat gebeur, het hy probeer om terug in die motor te klim.

“Die ou het hom in die hart geskiet,” het sy gesê.

Terwyl mnr. Slabbert op die sitplek langs haar gesit het, het prof. Slabbert agteruit gery en na ’n nabygeleë hospitaal gejaag.

Daar het die dokter vir prof. Slabbert gesê “dis verby”.

“Daar is geen rede hoekom hy my man moes skiet nie,” het Slabbert gesê. “Hy kon net weggehardloop het.

“Gerhard was ’n wonderlike mens. Almal was mal oor hom.

“Al wat ek weet is dat my kinders moet padgee (uit die land) sodra hulle kan,” het sy gesê.

Kapt. Lucas Sithole, polisiewoordvoerder, het dié voorval bevestig. Niks is gesteel nie en niemand is in nog hegtenis geneem nie. ’n Klag van moord word ondersoek.

Behalwe vir sy vrou, laat mnr. Slabbert twee seuns van 20 en 17 jaar oud, en ’n dogter, 21, agter. Die begrafnisreëlings is nog nie gefinaliseer nie.

Volgens Sithole is die 13-jarige meisie Saterdagaand omstreeks 21:00 by haar huis deur twee mans geskiet. “Die mans het weggehardloop toe die meisie begin skree het. Hulle het niks gesteel nie en is nog op vrye voete. ’n Saak van poging tot moord word ondersoek.”

Volksmoord is sulke swak maniere

Geskryf deur Gustav Venter

Donderdag, 29 November 2007

Daar is dit nou bevestig.

Ons – witmense in die algemeen en Afrikaners in besonder – gaan deur swart massas uitgewis word. So sê 'n (ryk, swart) vriend van bevrydingsteoloog en volkshater, Nico Smith. Mamelodi se dominee doen toe wat die algemene liberalis doen wanneer hy iets op die hart het: Hy skryf 'n hikkerige, preutse opstel vir Beeld om te plaas. Daarin betig hy die Afrikaner vir sy swak maniere en dreig hom, letterlik, met die dood.

Dit is nie 'n nuwe gedagte nie. In die dae toe die land soos 'n wegholkoekepan teen die afdraande na 'n meerderheidsregering gestorm het, het nugter Afrikaners gewaarsku dat blankes in die land deur algehele uitdelging bedreig sou word. Nico Smith en sy soort het gesê twak en nonsens. Dit is ouvroustories. Nou waarsku hy (en sy (ryk, swart) vriend) teen dit waarteen ons al vir jare waarsku. Dit klink asof hulle so pas daaraan gedink het. Die liberale teoloog kom, net soos die agteros, uiteindelik in die kraal en dit in net bietjie meer as 'n dekade. Nou is dit nie meer ouvroustories nie. Hulle verskaf darem 'n splinternuwe rede vir die komende uitdelging.

In die dae voor 1994 se katastrofe, het Nico Smith die volksmoordwaarskuwings probeer wegpraat. As die Afrikaner tog net die land se rykdom en regering aan die Bantoes oorhandig, het hy verduidelik, sal hulle dit in hulle beswaarde swart boesems vind om ons vir alles en nog wat te vergewe. Hulle is eintlik sulke deernisvolle wesens, gegrond in 'n mensliewende kultuur. Die laaste ding wat hulle sal wil doen is om witmense uit te moor soos... soos... wel, soos wat hulle elke dag vir die afgelope dertien-en-'n-half jaar doen.

Ja, maar 'n strykystermoordjie hier, 'n verwurginkie daar, dis niks, lees 'n mens tussen die lyne van Smith se waarskuwing in 'n opstel in die Beeld. (Soos meeste van Naspers se bydraers word sy lukrake gedagtes op 'n onversigtige manier aangebied. Dit word van die leser verwag om die skrywer se halwe gedagtes en onverbonde argumente te probeer saamflans ten einde enige sinvolheid daaruit te trek.) Na die Bantoe se littelosmakery gaan hy lostrek met 'n ordentlike landswye massamoord. En hoekom gaan hy dit doen? Want 'n paar witmense is ongeskik.

Elke keer wat Nico Smith se anonieme (en ryk en swart) vriend na 'n sekere naburige dorp gaan, tas Afrikaners sy menswaardigheid aan. Ongelukkig is Smith se waarskuwing nie algeheel behulpsaam nie. Hy dui nie aan wie die vriend is, waar hierdie heldorp is en wat dit presies is wat daar gedoen of gesê word wat so 'n beroering in die ryk, swart boesem bring nie. Miskien noem hulle hom 'n “kaffer.” Miskien bespeur hy 'n tikkie onopregtheid in die manier waarop hulle hom “morena” noem – en hy ry 'n Mercedes-Benz man, 'n BMW, 'n A8 Audi, wat ook al, kan hulle nie sien wié hy is nie? – Miskien is hulle effe traag om sy limousine se deur oop te maak wanneer hy die dorp binneluier. Miskien weier hulle om hulleself oor modderplase te werp sodat hy droogvoets daaroor kan loop. Miskien verwag hulle van hom om soos 'n gewone gepeupellid in 'n ry te staan en wag om bedien te word. Wat die dade of gebreke ook al is, dit tas hom blykbaar diep aan.

'n Mens sou dink dit raak hom so intens dat hy miskien dié dorp 'n les sou leer deur dit te vermy en sy fortuin op 'n ander plek te gaan uitgee. Dit werk vir Afrikaners. Daar is nie juis 'n stormloop van witmense na sulke kleurryke, polsende plekke soos Soweto om daar beledig te word nie. Bantoes het 'n ander oplossing. Hulle wis dan maar net 'n paar miljoen witmense en daarmee saam hulle swak maniere uit.

Dit het oor die anderhalfdekade duidelik geword dat die Afrikaner se oorgawe nog nie as algeheel aanvaar is solank as wat hy aan 'n kollektiewe halsstarrige gebrek aan maniere ly nie. Die gebied waarop hy etiketsgewys so lig bevind word, is hoofsaaklik sy onboetvaardigheid. Bantoes orals sing saam met liberale, blanke skrywers in 'n koor van Naspers se bladmusiek af: Die Afrikaner versuim om lank en hartstogtelik genoeg om vergifnis vir sy groot sonde – dat die Bantoe nie so ryk, ordentlik, hardwerkend en skrander soos hy is nie – te smeek. Hierdie hele landweggeeding, dit is maar net die begin. Nou moet sy berou gedemonstreer word. Wat die Bantoe en Nico Smith begeer is 'n volk van Adriaan Vloks, op die knieë, Tupperware-skotteltjie onder die blad, groteske flikflooigrinnik op die gesig.

Adriaan Vlok is blykbaar nie 'n handwringende swaeltjie wat 'n hele boetvaardige somer maak nie. Daarom gaan ons uitgemoor word, waarsku Mamelodi se wit, Marxistiese toordokter. Daar is te veel Afrikaners wat die Tupperware-skottelroete verwerp. Hulle stem saam dat nasionale slegte maniere besig is om die gate in die romp van daardie gedoemde vaartuig, die Nuwe Suid-Afrika, in te roes. Maar hulle sien eerder Bantoes se ondankbaarheid, gulsigheid, roofsug en neiging tot geweld as redes wat onvermydelik tot 'n bloedige rassekonflik gaan lei.

Nico Smith is nie blind vir die komende krisis nie. Hy skryf dat “disrespek en aggressie in verhoudings tussen bevolkingsgroepe... blykbaar aan die toeneem is.” Daar’s nou vir jou 'n kosbare kykie na die ooglopende. Hierdie sin is sy enigste vae aanduiding dat daar wederkerigheid in tussenrassige spanning in die land is. Deur die res van sy opstel aanvaar hy dat die Bantoe nie vir enige iets skuldig gehou kan word nie. Daarmee doen hy Steve Sailer se uitspraak gestand dat die Oersonde (original sin) van Ras behels dat waar 'n swartman ook al droog maak, dit die witman se skuld is. Daaruit vloei dat in Smith se prognose die witman nie net uitgedelg gaan word nie maar dat die oorlewendes agterna nog skuldig gehou gaan word as die oorsaak daarvan. Die Swartman kan nie sondig nie.

Sonde is uiteraard 'n belangrike onderwerp in die Bybel en die aard, uitwerking en God se weersin in onderskeie oortredings word deeglik daarin behandel. Twee vergrype wat veral heftig afgekeur word is die tweelingsondes van oneerlikheid en onnoselheid. Nico Smith is deurlopend aan een of albei skuldig. Hy is oneerlik omdat hy in sy waarskuwing nie die volle waarheid praat nie. Dat maak nie saak hoeveel voete die Afrikaner was, hoeveel hy opoffer en hoe ordentlik hy ook al met Smith se (ryk, swart) vriend omgaan nie, daar is een sonde waarvoor die Bantoe hom altyd skuldig sal hou: Die feit dat die swartman nie wit kan wees nie. Dit is al wat die Bantoe sal tevrede stel en solank as wat die blanke nie die onmoontlike kan doen nie, sal die swartman hom met uitwissing bedreig.

Maar Smith is ook skuldig aan die een sonde waarvoor skynbaar geen remedie bestaan nie: Onnoselheid. Hy was een van die regiment liberales wat ons verseker het dat die Afrikaner se voortbestaan en Suid-Afrika se vooruitgang net in 'n multikulturele bestel gewaarborg kan word. Hulle het 'n utopie geskets waarin twee kulture saam sou kom om 'n derde, onbepaalde, stopverfkleurige kultuur te vorm.

Dit het nog nooit en nog nêrens gewerk nie. Meervoudige kulture in een gebied sal teen mekaar wedywer totdat die een die ander omvergewerp en geabsorbeer het. Van die tweede kultuur sal niks oorbly nie en daar sal nooit 'n derde wees nie. Dit is 'n antropologiese reël wat so ferm is soos die natuurwet wat bepaal dat appels nie boontoe uit 'n boom val nie. Die Westerling is instinktief erg onbeïndruk deur Afrikakultuur en sal daarom nooit daarin opgeneem kan word nie. Die enigste manier waarop die Bantoe sy kultuur teen die blanke s'n kan laat geld, is om die witmens gewelddadig uit te roei.

Die verskoning vir hierdie uitdelging, as ons Nico Smith reg lees, is die blanke se “disrespek” vir swartes. Hierdie minagting gaan daartoe lei dat duisende woedende swartes 'n blanke dorp gaan bestorm en die inwoners uitmoor. In naburige dorpe gaan ander swartmense die blye tyding hoor en die goeie werk voortsit. Die weermag en die polisie gaan te laat opdaag en wanneer hulle wel daar aankom, gaan dit net wees om aan die proses deel te neem. Blankes moet ook net nie op hulle wapenbehendigheid staatmaak om die swart gevaar af te weer nie. Smith klink so effe afgehaal dat witmense hoegenaamd nog vuurwapens het en verseker ons dadelik dat daar swartes bestaan wat nou self baie skietgoed het. Hy reken die blankes se gesamentlike gat gaan geskop word.

Wel…!

Wel, mag hierdie nie net by praatjies bly nie. Daar is seker nie 'n goeie kans dat Smith hierdie rubriek sal lees nie. Liberales lees nie graag rond nie want hulle is doodverskrik dat hulle oorval sal word deur dít wat hulle die meeste vrees: Die waarheid. Maar as die dominee dalk op die net verdwaal en hierdie raak lees, vra ek dat hy vir sy swart vriend hierdie kleingeld sal vat: Kom! Kom probeer dit net. Ons wag vir julle. Kom veg met ons.

Ons is moeg om mooi te praat en net te gee, gee, gee en dit met die wete dat niks ooit vir die sprinkane van Afrika genoeg sal wees nie. Die Afrikaner is te vredeliewend om 'n skietstryd te begin maar te ordentlik om met een op te hou voordat dit afgehandel is. Ons het die afgelope dekade geleer wat die swart Suid-Afrikaner met mag doen. Daarom, as ons eers begin skiet, sal ons nie ophou voordat ons seker is dat geen ander volk – veral 'n swart een – ooit weer oor ons die oorhand sal kry nie.

Ons vryheid is nie meer op die onderhandelingstafel nie. Daar is niks om oor te praat nie. Die Afrikaner sal weer oor homself regeer en weer sy eie land bou soos net hy kan. Ons is bereid om ons vryheid met harde werk, vreedsame verset en volgehoue druk te bekom. Dit gaan 'n verbete en uitmergelende stryd wees. Die een manier waarop die Bantoe dit vir ons oneindig makliker kan maak, is om ons daadwerklik aan te val.

Die kortpad na Afrikanervryheid kom deur die loop van die geweer.

Dit is nie 'n roete wat ons uit goeie gewete sonder meer kan of wil volg nie. Maar 'n aanval op ons is 'n vrypas om die roer teen die skouer te bring. En, sê vir Nico Smith se swart vriend, een van die duisende dinge wat ons beter as swartes doen, is om te skiet. Daarmee is niemand op aarde beter as ons nie. Al is ons, in goeder trou, nie op die oomblik formeel voorberei nie, is slaggereedheid deel van ons genetiese samestelling.

Drie-en-'n-half eeue se oefening in Afrika het Bantoes-skiet deel van ons oorlewingsroetine gemaak. Ons het dit gedoen aan die Visrivier-grens, ons het dit by Vegkop en Bloedrivier gedoen; by Sharpeville en Cassinga en Cuito Cuanavale ook. Ons het Xhosa’s en Zoeloes en Basoetoes platgeskiet. Ons het Owambo’s verpletter en toe Kubane, Russe en Oos-Duitsers kom inmeng het, het ons hulle ook op loop gejaag. En, as julle oor die streep op die grond trap, sal ons dit weer doen. Hierdie keer gaan ons nie ophou totdat die Oranje-Blanje-Blou weer in vrye lug bo ons eie grondgebied roer nie.

Wanneer ons geskiet en geskiet en geskiet het, en in die versoeking is om op te hou, sal die herinneringe aan elke verkragte Afrikanermaagd, elke gemartelde oumens, elke vergruisde kind, elke vermoorde plaasboer ons van enige genade weerhou. En elke skoot sal 'n mikroskopiese druppeltjie salf bring vir al die frustrasie en woede wat ons oor dertien jaar opgebou het.

Laat ons erken: Ons Afrikaners kan 'n ongepoetste, bruuske ou lotjie wees. Maar ons is ook bekend vir ons gasvryheid en inskiklikheid. Ek kan nie vir Nico Smith se (ryk, swart) vriend waarborg dat geen Afrikaner hom ooit weer 'n “kaffer” sal noem nie. Maar as hy en sy hordes brand van begeerte om soos honde platgeskiet te word, kan ons hom help. Ek nooi hulle uit. Kom probeer dit. En as die swart vriend maak of hy nie Afrikaans verstaan nie, laat ek dit vir hom in 'n primitiewe Engelse kitsfrase sê: Bring it on!

Ons kan nie wag nie.

Burglars used sjambok on me, claims woman

November 26 2007 at 11:58PM

Two men accused of breaking into an elderly woman's house and beating her with a sjambok appeared in the Grahamstown High Court on Monday.

The woman's skull was fractured in the assault.

Khayalethu Harmaans, 23, of Tuinplaas, Kirkwood, and David Hanabe, 32, of Moses Madiba, Kirkwood, pleaded not guilty before Judge Elna Revelas.

They are accused of breaking into the home of Joan Schonken, 72, of Kopkrap Farm, Kirkwood, on November 19, 2006, and robbing her of R88 000 worth of household goods, including a Toyota Cressida valued at R70 000.

The state's indictment alleges the two men, after breaking into the house by sawing through the burglar bars on the bedroom window, knocked Schonken to the ground, kicked her and struck her with a sjambok.

The bespectacled Schonken, who is now 73 and walks with the aid of a crutch, told the court she was a widow, and lived alone on the farm.

"That night I was watching television at about 10.30pm when I heard a noise from my bedroom. I went to the bedroom and was about to phone the security people, when I saw two men standing in my bedroom," she said.

"They demanded cash, weapons and wanted to know where the safe was. They kicked me and struck me with their fists. Then they began beating me all over with a sjambok."

The trial continues. - Sapa

It is difficult to cut a head off with a panga

By Bongi of the Other-Things-Amanzi Blog.

I have decided to break from my series to quickly blog about a recent patient.

I now know it is difficult to cut a head off with a panga. It is not something I wanted to know. It is most assuredly not something I wanted to find out the way I did.

I was called to theater only after she had been put to sleep. The plastic surgeon wanted me to attend to some of her many wounds while he pieced together the face. I don't think I am easily shocked, but I was. She was about 60. She had been attacked in her house by a group of men wielding (and swinging) pangas. She was transfered to our hospital where the plastic surgeon took her to theater. He then called me.

I walked in. The right side of her face had multiple slashes. The angle of attack was slanted downwards. The side of her face had been sliced off in thin slivers like a piece of roast beef. A piece of the mastoid process had been sliced off. The layers lay loose, attached only at the lower neck. I assume these were the first wounds inflicted. She must have fallen forward then. This I know because the next wound was in the posterior aspect of the upper arm. The triceps was completely transected. The humerus itself had a deep gash in it. I suspect the assailant would have had difficulty removing the panga from the humerus, the wound was so deep. By this stage the woman must have been face down, defeated. The next wound was over the right scapula. The scapula was cut right through. There were two separate pieces with all the muscles transected as well. The force mustered to deliver this blow must have been emense.

I quickly realized that an orthopod would be a better bet for the patient than me. We called one. He scrubbed up and went to work as the plastic surgeon pieced together the jigsaw (read panga) puzzle that was her face.

And her crime? She was white. Yes, she was simply the victim of a racial hate crime.

I remain in shock.

About Bongi, the author: "I'm a general surgeon working in the notorious South African province of Mpumalanga."

Afrikaner ‘ontman’ en ‘aanbid sportgod’

Mnr. Eugene Terre'Blanche, oudleier van die AWB, en Steve Hofmeyr groet mekaar in die Skilpadsaal in Pretoria waar 1 500 mense 'n massavolksaamtrek en verootmoedigingsdiens bygewoon het.
Nov 25 2007 10:55:20:383PM - (SA)

Alet Rademeyer

Hy het die Trekliedjie gesing, mnr. Eugene Terre’Blanche, oudleier van die AWB, se hand geskud, ’n paar handtekeninge uitgedeel X en hom toe uit die voete gemaak.

Teen gistermiddag laat het die sanger Steve Hofmeyr hom nog nie uitgelaat oor wat hy dink van die massa- volksaamtrek en verootmoedigingsdiens wat eergister in die Skilpadsaal by die Tshwane Event Centre in Pretoria gehou is nie.

Sowat 1 500 mense het die saamtrek bygewoon wat deur die Brandwag van die Christen Boervolk gehou is.

Terre’Blanche, mnre. Elias Olivier, oudambassadeur, Willie Marais, leier van die HNP, dr. Bobby Ellis en verskeie predikante het opgetree.

Olivier het gesê die rede vir die byeenkoms is omdat die Afrikaner diep in die nood is. “Ons is polities ontman. Ons het geen inspraak of gesag meer nie en is op die kantlyn geskuif. Swart ekonomiese bemagtiging, regstellende aksie en grondhervorming dra ook by tot die swak situasie waarin ons ons tans bevind.

“Ons Afrikaner-kultuur en taal word stelselmatig verdruk en ons kinders is uitgelewer aan goddelose uitkomsgerigte onderwys.

“Ook ons kerke staan in ’n gees van transformasie waar godsdiens vervlak het en Sabbatsontheiliging aan die orde van die dag is. En sport het ’n afgod onder die Afrikaners geword.”

Volgens Olivier is die Afrikaner in die moeilikheid omdat hy ver van God is en vergeet het van die beloftes wat hy aan God gemaak het.

Hy het gesê sedert die nuwe regering in 1994 aan bevind gekom het, het 400 000 mense gewelddadig gesterf.

Terre’Blanche het in sy toespraak gesê Afrikaners is nie indringers in Afrika nie.

Hy het gesê aannames dat Afrikaners grond by mense afgevat het, is “ ’n leuen wat dag ná dag in ons kele afgedruk word”.

Volgens hom is die “kaart en transport-aktes van die honderdduisende hektaar grond wat die boere in die land gekoop het, nog te kry en dit is daarmee wat hulle na die hoogste hof in Den Haag en die Verenigde Nasies moet gaan”.

“Ons praat nie oorlog nie, maar ons wil ons deel van die land hê. Dit is tyd dat die Boerevolk se saak oorsee geneem word,” het hy gesê.

Hy het ’n beroep op mense gedoen wat die saamtrek bygewoon het, om betrokke te raak by die SMS-reddingstelsel van die Brandwag om hulself te beveilig en misdaad te bekamp.

“Ons mag nie vermoor word nie. Ons het ’n plig om mekaar op te pas en mekaar lief te hê. Ons sal moet besluit of ons gaan betrokke raak.”

Miskraam ná beampte-optrede

24/11/2007 17:57 - (SA)

Estelle Ellis en Peet van Aardt

Kaapstad

’n Gesin van Gordonsbaai vat die Kaapse stadsraad hof toe nadat twee metropolisielede me. Jacqueline Kotze (34) glo só hardhandig behandel het dat sy haar ongebore baba kwyt is.

Sy was op 29 Desember verlede jaar met haar twee kinders Miecqe (4) en Yelcqe (2) na ’n winkelsentrum in Somerset-Wes onderweg toe metropolisielede hulle afgetrek en Kotze in hegtenis geneem het.

Kotze, ’n kaptein in die polisie, is ure later vrygelaat.

Twee weke later het sy ’n miskraam gehad.

“My vrou het by ’n verkeerslig gestop en bloot in haar stoel omgedraai om Miecqe se sitplek te laat sak,” vertel ’n hartseer mnr. Pierre Kotze.

Konstt. Timothy Ferus en Mario Batist het agter hulle gery.

Kotze het glo ’n gebaar gemaak om om verskoning te vra omdat sy die verkeer opgehou het en toe aangery.

“Die volgende oomblik sit hulle hul sirene aan en druk haar sommer van die pad af,” sê Kotze.

Hulle wou haar rybewys sien.

“Toe sy haar motor probeer aanskakel om die lugversoring vir haar kinders in die warm motor aan te skakel, het Ferus en Batist haar gegryp, haar arms agter haar rug opgedruk en haar geboei. Hulle het haar toe na hul motor gesleep en haar agterin gegooi.”

“Terwyl hulle met my vrou na die polisiestasie gery het, het een van die polisiebeamptes ’n oproep van ene Karin, glo Ferus se vrou, gekry. Hy sê toe aan sy vrou dat hulle ’n ryk, wit teef met ’n houding gearresteer het.”

Kotze, wat reeds sewentien jaar in die polisiediens is, is toe na die Gordonsbaai-polisiestasie geneem waar sy uiteindelik haar man kon kontak.

Een beampte het agter hulle aangery in haar motor met haar huilende dogter agterin.

Ná vier uur is Kotze eers vrygelaat.

Sy is aangekla van openbare oproerigheid en onbedagsame bestuur.

Kotze het nou ’n siviele geding teen die stadsraad van Kaapstad ingestel.

Die Kotzes se twee kinders moes ook berading kry en volgens Pierre gaan sy vrou nooit weer terug polisie toe nie.

Vrou steek rower in rug

Nov 23 2007 11:22:42:403PM - (SA)

Virginia Keppler

’n Gewapende aanvaller het eergister sy Moses teëgekom toe ’n dapper vrou (29) van Capitalpark, Pretoria, hom in ’n geveg met ’n yslike vleismes in die rug gesteek het.

Vinnige dinkwerk deur me. Cari-Mari Wilsenach se vriend, mnr. George Kriel (45), het boonop gesorg dat die aanvaller met die mes in sy rug in hul huis vasgekeer is sodat hulle hulp kon gaan soek.

Kriel en Wilsenach het gister aan Beeld vertel hulle het omstreeks 18:00 op hul huis se stoep in Venterstraat gesit toe die rower hulle oorval het.

“Hy het gevra vir selfone en ons met sy pistool by die huis in gedwing. In die kombuis het ons hom ons selfone en geld gegee,” sê Kriel.

Die rower wou weet waar hul kluis is, maar die paartjie besit nie een nie. Hy het hulle tot in hul slaapkamer gedwing en gesê hulle moet op die bed gaan lê. “Ek het toe geweet hy gaan ons doodskiet en besef ek moet iéts doen,” sê Kriel.

Hy het die hand waarin die rower die pistool gehou het, gegryp en afgedruk grond toe. Hulle het gestoei en twee skote het afgegaan. “Hy het my ses keer met die pistool op my kop gekap.”

Wilsenach het intussen die paniekknoppie in die kamer gedruk en toe lampe, kandelaars en enigiets waarop sy haar hande kom lê, gegryp en die rower daarmee geslaan en gegooi.

Sy het kombuis toe gehardloop waar sy nog ’n paniekknoppie gedruk het toe Kriel en die rower se gestoei tot in die tuin gevorder het. “Ek het ’n vleismes gegryp en probeer om hom daarmee te slaan, maar met die eerste hou vir George raakgeslaan.”

Wilsenach sê nadat sy die rower herhaaldelik met die mes geslaan het, het dit hom nie gestuit nie. “Toe draai ek die mes reg in my hand en druk dit in sy rug. Ek kon net die hef sien uitsteek.”

Die rower het met die mes in sy rug by die huis ingehardloop waarna Kriel die veiligheidshek toegedruk en gesluit het. Hulle het toe na die Capitalpark Plante-kwekery gehardloop vir hulp. Mnre. Eddie Briel, eienaar van die kwekery, en Paul Stander het na die huis gehardloop. “Eddie het sy pistool gehad en ek ’n tuinvurk,” vertel Stander.

“Oor die muur kon ons sien die rower is nog in die huis vasgekeer. Hy het die hek stukkend geslaan. “Hy het sy pistool op Eddie gerig en toe skiet Eddie twee waarskuwingskote in die grond,” sê Stander.

Die verdagte wou oor die heining na ’n ander erf spring, maar dié bure het hom met klippe bestook. Die rower het toe oor ’n ander elektriese heining gespring en straat-af gehardloop. Stander en Briel het hom voor die kwekery aangekeer, vasgebind en sy pistool afgeneem. Kriel se wonde is met verskeie steke by die Pretoria-Wes-hospitaal geheg en hy ontvang ook teen-vigsbehandeling.

Kapt. Lucas Sithole het die voorval bevestig.

Wife lay next to dead husband for 30 hours

November 24 2007 at 11:51AM

By Alex Eliseev

Beaten and semi-conscious, Martina Stocker lay next to her husband's bloody corpse for more than 30 hours. She and her husband Jürgen fell prey to a gang of robbers at their Bryanston home on Wednesday night, but were only discovered on Friday, after their company raised the alarm.

Jürgen, 66, was shot in the upper body and collapsed in the passage. He was tied up and left in a pool of his own blood.

Martina lay in the same passage from the time of the attack until 9am on Friday, when Inspector Hein van Heerden, from Randburg police station, found her.

"They were not far from each other," a police officer at the scene said.

Detectives said at first they thought Martina was also dead but, after confirming she was alive, called the paramedics.

The 49-year-old woman was rushed to Sunninghill hospital, where she remains under observation. She had been viciously attacked and was dehydrated.

On Friday, children from Bryandale Primary poured out into Stirling Avenue into their parents' cars. Metres from the school gate, detectives waited for a mortuary van to clean up the grizzly murder scene inside house number 23.

It's understood the robbers gained entry into the upmarket house by smashing the glass back door. It appears Jürgen got up to investigate and confronted the intruders.

Police confirmed that two weapons, a handgun and a shotgun, were stolen from the house. It is not known whether the robbers used one of these guns to shoot the owner or if they were armed when they broke in.

At the scene, a team of five forensic pathologists worked to gather evidence. A postmortem is likely to be done on Monday.

The Stockers' Land Rover was parked in the driveway, facing the gate. It's understood the robbers tried to drive it away but were unsuccessful. A set of keys was discovered on the lawn outside the perimeter wall.

The police were led to the house when the couple's work colleagues became worried and called sector manager Van Heerden.

Police spokesperson Superintendent Lungelo Dlamini said the house had been ransacked. Aside from the guns, a laptop and some cellphones were missing.

All Dlamini would say about the attack on Martina was that she had been assaulted.

Police have approached the German consulate to assist them in notifying Stocker's son, who lives in Germany.

Sunninghill hospital spokesperson Pip Kruger said family members had given strict instructions to the hospital not to comment on her condition.

Netcare 911's Nick Dollman confirmed that they had treated the patient and transported her to the hospital.

79-year-old Afrikaner farmer Jan Voster, 'chopped to shreds by panga'

NELSPRUIT. Nov 22 2007 - Beeld reports: 79-year-old Afrikaner retired farmer Jan Voster of Nelspruit was "chopped to shreds by panga-wielding black attackers on Nov 22 2007.

It took surgeons at Nelspruit's Medi-Clinic three hours to repair his severed arteries after Jan and Hannetjie Voster (75) were attacked inside their Nelspruit farm house. He requires more surgery but now has to strengthen up before surgeons will try to repair the rest of the damage to his shredded body.

Nothing was robbed by the two armed men who had invaded the homestead belonging to the old Afrikaner couple. It's not known how many attackers were involved. Police are investigating.

Security guards who responded to the panic alarm within minutes said "Mr Voster was chopped so badly that practically nothing on his body was left intact.' His son in law who was there within six minutes from his home in nearby Alkmaar said, "It was a terrible sight".

The extreme ferocity of such attacks targetting Afrikaner farmers has been a feature of the 'farm-attack phenomenon" in SA. More than 2,300 Afrikaner farmers have already been murdered in this "Uhuru" manner since 1991-2.

Nelspruit police inspector Dawie Pretorius is investigating.

Oue gekap ‘dat amper niks van hom oorbly’

Nov 22 2007 09:05:56:720PM - (SA)

Naranda Nell

Nelspruit. – ’n 79-jarige man van ’n plaas hier is wreed met ’n panga aangerand toe hy en sy vrou in die vroeë oggendure deur twee inbrekers oorval is.

Mnr. Jan Voster is in ’n bestendige toestand in die Medi-Clinic hier nadat hy van 04:00 tot 07:00 in die teater was sodat slagare wat in die aanval afgekap is, geheg kon word.

Me. Robyn Baard, woordvoerder van dié hospitaal, het gesê mnr. Voster se ander wonde sal geheg word sodra hy genoeg aangesterk het.

“Hy is tans op ventilators in die waakeenheid.”

Volgens mnr. Jakes Strydom, hoofbestuurder van Hi Tech Sekuriteit in Nelspruit, wat op die toneel was, is mnr. Voster só aangerand “dat daar omtrent niks van hom oorgebly het nie”.

Mnr. Kobus Greyvenstein, Voster en sy vrou, Hannetjie (75) se skoonseun, sê die egpaar het omstreeks 01:30 geluide in die huis gehoor.

Mev. Voster het haar man gestuur om te gaan ondersoek instel. “Hannetjie het gedink dis Jan wat terugkom slaapkamer toe, toe sy die vreemde man sien.”

Mnr. Voster is etlike kere met ’n panga in die gesig en in die nek geslaan.

Mev. Voster het slegs ’n paar skraapmerke aan haar arm opgedoen en was gister nog te geskok om met die media te praat.

Greyvenstein sê hy en sy vrou, ook Hannetjie, se nommer is as ’n panieknommer op mev. Voster se telefoon. Toe hulle die noodoproep kry, was hy binne minute daar.

“Ons bly wel 25 km uit die dorp op Alkmaar – aan die ander kant van die stad – maar (ek) was binne sewe minute by hulle. Dit was ’n verskriklike gesig,” het Greyvenstein gesê.

Hy het gesê mev. Voster het vertel dat ’n man die vorige dag by hulle werk gesoek het.

“Ons vermoed dat die twee verdagtes hulle dopgehou het.”

Greyvenstein sê sy skoonma is baie geskok. “Dit lyk of die werklikheid nog moet insink.”

Insp. Dawie Pretorius, woordvoerder van die plaaslike polisie, sê hulle ondersoek die saak, maar dat geen verdagtes nog gearresteer is nie.

Erasing The Afrikaner Nation

CNN’s Kyra Phillips has led her viewers to believe that dangling a noose—an impolite and impolitic form of expression—is a hate crime; a black man beating a white man to a pulp—not so much. Being maimed or murdered, evidently, doesn’t compare to being insulted. Phillips and the feminized establishment media have difficulties differentiating a felony from an affront to feelings. No wonder these wonder men and women are mum about who’s killing whom in the democratic South Africa, the pride of the liberal press.

While black South African criminals are not neglecting other blacks, they are, overwhelmingly, targeting Indians and whites. According to the South African Institute of Security Studies, “Only 32 percent of all blacks questioned knew someone who was a victim of crime,” compared to 66 percent of Indian adults and 56 percent of white adults. The color of crime and its casualties both in America and South Africa is the proverbial elephant in the room—to be touched upon only if the victims can be vilified as racists.

The BBC as well as New Zealand and Australian television news-networks have covered the racially motivated killing campaign Africans are conducting against the Afrikaner farmers of South Africa. Not Kyra and her colleagues at Fox, MSNBC, ABC, and CBS. No wonder, then, that the orchestrated ethnocide against the entire Afrikaner people has not been brought out into the open, as they like to say on CNN.

Ethnocide, as defined by Michael Mann, a leading historical sociologist, is “state-induced cultural assimilation, through hegemony and suppression.” The warmed-over Marxists governing South Africa with the West’s blessing are leading the charge against the country’s Afrikaner past, patriotism, and institutions.

Afrikaans, in particular, has come under the ANC’s attack, as the government attempts to compel Afrikaans schools to adopt English. Afrikaans-speaking universities, for example, have been labeled racist in the New South Africa and have been forced to merge with “third-rate black institutions so that campuses may be swamped by blacks demanding instruction in English,” to quote the Afrikaner intellectual, Dan Roodt.

The ANC’s attempts to tame and claim South-African history have been extended to landmarks in the annals of the founding people—these are being slowly erased, as demonstrated by the ANC’s decision to give an African name to Potchefstroom, a town founded in 1838 by the “Voortrekkers” (Dutch pioneers). The leader of those pioneers, Marthinus Pretorius, founded the capital, Pretoria. It is now Tshwane! Durban’s Moore Road (after Sir John Moore, the hero of the Battle of Corunna) is Che Guevara Road; Kensington Drive, Fidel Castro Drive. The cherry on the cake is Yasser Arafat highway, down which the motorist can speed on the way to the Durban airport.

As a subject in the school curriculum, history was initially neglected during the transition to majority rule. The establishment of the “South African History Project” changed that. The Project’s aim, according to Sasha Polakow-Suransky of the Chronicle of Higher Education, has been “a resurrection of the subject as a prominent field of study in the national school curriculum.” Unfortunately, following the American academy’s example, the trend has been away from “the pursuit of objective historical truth,” toward a postmodern, politically correct reconstruction of historical events, with the aim of fostering “certain values,” in the words of Kader Asmal, the minister of education in 2000.

“You have books appearing that interpret the history of South Africa only according to the perspective of the liberation struggle,” avers Pieter Kapp, a retired professor of history at Stellenbosch University. Indeed, “Since 1994, tales of European conquest are slowly beginning to disappear from the nation's classrooms, giving way to epic accounts of black anti-apartheid heroes,” writes Polakow-Suransky.

Like it or not, the modern marvel that was South Africa—with its space program and skyscrapers—was not the handiwork of the black nationalist movement now dismantling it; but the creation of those persecuted, pale, patriarchal Protestants.

Four in court for farm attack

19/11/2007 16:14 - (SA)

Bloemfontein - Four men appeared in the Trompsburg Magistrate's Court on Monday in connection with a farm attack, in which a farm worker was killed and the farm's owner wounded.

Inspector Harry Nagel said the case against the four men was postponed to November 22 for further investigation.

"The men will stay in police custody," he said.

The men are Jacob Malakia Tsoaela, 20, and Thabo Izak Senpe, 22, both from Trompsburg - and Richard Tumelo Masilo, 35, and Mofokeng Mokhete, 35, both from Soweto.

They face charges of murder, attempted murder and armed robbery.

Farm worker, Kallie Pieterse, 48, was killed with a piece of iron when five armed men overpowered workers at their homes on the farm Straussfontein near Trompsburg on Saturday morning.

Police said the workers were threatened with firearms, tied up with wire. Their cellphones were stolen too.

Alerted neighbours

Nagel said the men then took a house worker and went to the farmhouse where the farm owner Flip Henning, 64, was shot near his vehicle.

Henning managed to get inside the house and alert his neighbours, who cordoned off the farm.

Nagel said four of the five armed men were arrested by police and the community after the incident.

"One of the men seems to have committed suicide and fell into a nearby river," he said.

Nagel said police divers from Bloemfontein were at the scene to recover the body.

Investigators also found a vehicle that was covered with branches on the farm.

Henning, who was wounded in the stomach, was taken to hospital in Bloemfontein.

Cry of Silence - "The Cultbury Story"

Description from Afrikanerboetie, the author of this video:

The following is based upon a true story, not recommended for viewers younger than 16. While I was on a research trip, I had the oppertunity to spend some time with a very brave young girl. It gave me the oppertunity to present her story to you. Under certian circumstances I was not able to give you the full story, due to the fact that I am not a monster, and promised her that her name will not be revealed, in fear of other reasons. I am a boer and my word is my bond. And every Afrikaner knows that means I will take her name to my grave. Cry of silence is my contribution to her. We all can stand to listen to what our children have to say, we must think seriously of ending this, or take drastic actions to prepare ourselves for War, if needs be.
Please contribute, not with money, but with your spare time, to give to those that really are in need of help, you can do this by simply making your voice heard and forcing your own goverments to take notice.
Thanks for taking the time to watch her story and God Bless.

Knifed UCT prof was partly blind

November 18 2007 at 10:24AM

By Helen Bamford and Bronwynne Jooste

Respected University of Cape Town commercial law professor Mike Larkin, 58, who was stabbed to death by two muggers in Rondebosch on Friday, used to walk everywhere because he was partially sighted and unable to drive.

His murder has sparked an outpouring of anger and grief from colleagues and students alike, who have described him as a gentle and caring father figure and an excellent lecturer.

Larkin's attackers, who stabbed him repeatedly when he resisted their attempts to steal his bag in Roslyn Road, are still at large, said police spokesman Elliot Sinyangana.

'He was our favourite and loved by us all'

Law faculty manager Mike Watermeyer, who is blind, said he and Larkin had shared the challenge of dealing with visual impairment in an "unforgiving and dangerous society".

"We could not drive so we walked - everywhere. It is ironic that the very bravado which characterised our banter about having to walk home at night is what exposed Mike to the vicious attack to which he has now succumbed," said Watermeyer.

He said Larkin, who was divorced, was an accomplished academic and a man of immense fairness and moral integrity. "He was also a superb head of department in commercial law; a humble and concerned human being who had time for everyone."

Watermeyer said he had not only lost a colleague, but a good friend and someone from whom he had learned a great deal. "Not least of which was how to deal with the reality of my recently broken family. He gave me the strength to go on through sharing his own experience of that difficult time."

Watermeyer said he was angry and in despair over the murder.

'It's very weird to speak about him in the past tense'

"I weep for my loss. I weep for all of us who share this grief. And I weep for my country."

Final-year law student Lucy Garrod said she and her fellow students had recently finished exams and would soon be graduating. "But it won't be the same now. He was our favourite and loved by us all."

She said the murder had made her think again about the purpose of studying law in a lawless society.

Garrod said a number of her friends had been mugged in recent weeks. "One friend was coming back from the library when four or five guys with knives appeared out of nowhere. They turned her backpack upside down and stole her cellphone and ID."

She said she knew of other female students who had had similar experiences.

Garrod added that students would gather tomorrow to discuss the possibility of taking some kind of action, possibly a peace march in memory of Larkin.

Larkin's cousin, Marion Heap, said everyone loved him. "And he was our beloved," she said.

Professor Martin West, acting vice chancellor of UCT, said they were deeply saddened by Larkin's death and horrified by the manner in which it occurred.

Larkin was head of the commercial law department and was also a member of the UCT senate, the body responsible for academic governance, as well as being a member of the university's animal ethics committee.

West said Larkin had come to the UCT law faculty in January last year after a long and distinguished association both as a student and professor with the University of Witwatersrand's law school. "He was one of this country's top company lawyers and renowned for his expertise in the field."

West extended his sympathy to Larkin's family and friends on behalf of the university and legal colleagues. "His passing is a tremendous loss to the university."

Student Ognyan Savov said Larkin always had a kind word for his students. "I would say he was the most friendly lecturer. You could see he was very devoted, he would be here early in the morning and stay late in the evening. It's very weird to speak about him in the past tense," said Savov.

Masters student David Iwe grew close to Larkin when he supervised Iwe's thesis. "He was fatherly and very concerned about his students. When I heard about it, I thought 'This is like killing the pope'."

John Kandara said despite his abilities as a lecturer, Larkin was humble. "The one thing that really struck me was his self-effacing nature. He would take the most complex information and make it very basic for us to understand. He was really a brilliant lecturer."

A note attached to a bunch of flowers outside Larkin's office, placed there yesterday by a student, described him as "patient, gentle, warm, humble and a good teacher".

"You were the kind of man I'd like to be," it read.

The flowers were also starting to pile up at the spot where Larkin was killed. Nina Johnson, who lives in Roslyn Road, said she had spoken to one of Larkin's aunts.

"She was telling me they were planning to have a family gathering tomorrow in Muizenberg, and for this to happen, it's just a tragedy. We know there is a lot of crime in this area, but this is the first time there's been a killing."

Re: Uhuru

September 20, 2006, 12:28:23PM

Hello All

I would like to comment on UHURU, and I would like you all please to be open-minded about what I will tell you. I will not force you or try to make you believe what I tell you. I will merely highlight some problems and then we go from there okay?

First of all, forget about the cliches about a volkstaat, about rightwing plotters, about overthrowing the government and all other jazz you heard about. It is propaganda and should be ignored. Look at your surroundings and what is happening in SA right now.

Example: Crime is getting out of hand, no news there. Although it might interest you to know that 2016 farmers have already been murdered in SA. Israel invaded Libynon for 2 soldiers that were kidnapped. (think about this). I can also tell you that the murder rate (excluding people dying in hospitals due to neglegence) is about 64 per 100 000. In France, the rate is 4 people dead per 100 000. SA is currently the crime capital of the world. Farmers are mutilated and tortured until death. I can show you photos, but my idea is not to scare you but to inform you.

I have a video which you can download from the net, about the songs which ANC/Cosatu/SACP members sing at their rallies, their meetings etc. These songs are called freedom songs or struggle songs and after 12 years of "democracy", they are still being sung. These songs incite hatred and violence towards whites. The problem is that these songs are an expression of what these blacks feel and are prepared to do. This is not a racist comment, be open-minded about this. What the reasons for their hatred is, is irrelevant for now, I am only highlighting the current environment in SA. So bear with me.

Next you saw the strikes in the country that have been escalating. Since November 2005 there has not been a single day in SA without an organized strike (on large scale, not little strikes). Think about the Transport strikes, Petrol strikes, Pick 'n Pay, Cleaners, Shoprite and Security guards as an example.

What happened to the loyal workers who refused to strike? They were thrown off trains, their arms were cut off, they were killed and tortured. Why? Think about this. It is not just a question of "it's in their blood". Let me explain why.

Remember the necklace murders which made Winnie Mandela famous? She burnt her victims alive with tyres around their necks if they dared disobey her orders. What was the result? Unity. How sick it may seem, it installed a discipline amongst her followers. Blacks were afraid to disobey her orders which put her in a position to give any order she pleased and knowing, that it would be carried out, regardless of the consequences.

The strikes are creating a similar discipline. They are persecuting anyone who does not unite with their cause. Now the next question is: Why? Why do they need this unity, and what are they planning that they need this amount of discipline for? I will leave this question with you and after the article you can decide for yourself.

Next I want you to look at the culture of the blacks. Not the urbanized black people, look at the rural people. Think about the fact that they have little or nothing to lose. Think about the estimated 20 million illegal immigrants in the country who feel nothing for the people here. Even the blacks dont want the immigrants here because they "take our jobs", one black person was recorded to have said.

Also think of this, there has been 25 years of propaganda about how bad all the whites are, how badly we treated them, how we (today still!) take their jobs, own all the land, try to undermine them, want to rule them, dont want them to have anything worthwhile, how WE GAVE THEM AIDS etc. Whether it is the truth, or lies is irrelevant for now, I want you to think about cause and effect.

Okay, so lets recap:

1. The majority of blacks have a deeply rooted hatred for whites.
2. They have nothing to lose and believe that the possessions of whites are theirs for the taking.
3. They believe that we are settlers who do not belong in Africa.
4. They are instilling a discipline amongst their people to do "something"
5. They incite each other by singing vicious songs about killing whites (even today).
6. Look at the crime levels in SA (being the most dangerous country in the world today and where countries like New Zealand warn tourists about crime and urging them rather to choose other destinations)
7. Look at the hate crimes being committed in terms of farm murders and the brutality of it.

I can go on, but my point is, if there was a rumour that they could have the chance to kill whites when Mandela dies, some may believe it, and if only 0.02% of the black population in SA believes this rumour and are willing to kill (like they said they would), then we have 200 000 murderers running the streets that neither the army nor the police can stop.

But there are also other possible scenarios: APLA was the old military wing of the PAC, the most communist party in SA. When the military wing was disbanded, these militants were taken up into the army. The people you need to protect you if such a scenario plays out, are the people who chanted slogans like "kill a boer, kill a farmer" etc. Just think about this, dont comment.

Also think about this, the military and the government act on "all possible threats". When they hear of a potential threat to their position, they act immediately. Why? Because they are rather safe than sorry. They cannot afford to underestimate a rumour.

Now we have heard a "rumour". You can underestimate the scenario, or you can prepare. It's going to take effort but not more than that. None of your efforts will be wasted.

We are in agreement that anarchy is possible, whatever the reason, and whoever is involved is not important. Whether it is 100 000 criminals, or 100 000 armed militia, or 100 000 ex-APLA members, it is irrelevant. Point is, there is a potential onslaught and we need to prepare for it. Unfortunately, talking isn’t going to make much difference now, those who havent listened until now, will not listen in the future either.

So what do we do? We prepare for it.

How do we prepare? Well, we have done a number of things (as members of the “Die Suidlanders”), including the making of an Afrikaans DVD where ex military intel person, Gustav Muller, speaks about the coming anarchy and calls on whites to unite and prepare in order to survive. Be sure that we are not inciting violence in any manner, but we are aware of threats to our safety and it is 100% legal to protect yourself and your family. The DVD is in Afrikaans, but here are some tips:

Liewer bang Jan as dooie Jan. (Rather scared than dead)

What do I prepare for? Chaos.

What would cause it? The total collapse of the South African Infrastructure. (It could be caused by a number of things, large strikes, a funeral where workers don’t work for 7 days, war in the middle East that causes fuel shortages in SA and all over the world, inflation and interest rates that skyrocket, or a combination of the above). The reason is irrelevant.

What will the result of the collapse of infrastructure be? No power, no running water, sewerage systems not working, rubbish removal non-existant, fuel shortages, food shortages etc.

What happens when infrastructure collapses? Crime increases. The already underprivilaged, permanently disadvantaged, hungry masses will forcefully take whatever they want, to survive. This means that they will target areas where it is perceived to be “rich”, ie. white suburbs, shops etc.

Why do I say this? In New Orleans, a first world country (NOT 3rd world like SA today where 56 people are killed per day), thousands of soldiers had to use extreme force to bring the state under control when rapists, murderers and robbers pludered the city. Outside the city, 100 000 American soldiers waited for the civilians with rat-packs (food packs), tents, blankets and ensured their safety. All this happened because a tsunami forced people to evacuate their homes and knocked out power across the city.

Now think about this. If the power in SA is knocked out for a long period of time (a few days-weeks), why would it NOT happen here? In New Orleans there wasn’t a culture of rape and murder, there wasn’t a hate towards Apartheid, there wasn’t racial friction and they didn’t NEARLY have the crime rate that we sit with in SA. And we all know that after 48 hours, even the battery of your alarm system in your home is flat. Should chaos break out, the police won’t have the manpower to protect the citizens. So unless you prepare, you will be a sitting duck, surrounded by armed criminals, driven by hate, hunger or whatever else. What will you do?

How do I prepare? There are four things to do:

1. GET FUEL WHILE THERE IS FUEL! Don’t wait until there is total anarchy and then try to go to the closest garage. This happens faster than you can imagine. The previous day the people in new orleans still went ice skating and had coffee at the mall. Two days later they were dependent on the US government for food, shelter and protection. YOU DON’T HAVE THAT LUXURY IN SA! There will be nothing waiting for you. So get enough fuel to drive 100km. With that, you can either drive towards food, or away from danger.

2. GET FOOD. It might sound silly until you need bread and drive to the shops to find them plundered, or the shelves empty. It is wise to stock food for about 3 months, you can ignore it, but if there is trouble, you can stand in line with a plastic bowl and wait for handouts. Oh yes, while you are trying to protect yourself and your family from getting killed by people driven by desperation, who also didn’t have anything to eat for weeks, or people that have streamed across our borders for a “better life”.

3. MEDICAL SUPPLIES. This is especially important for children and people with chronic conditions. No matter which way you look at it, you need that medicine, so make sure you have extras. You can ignore it, but if there is fuel shortages, and your medicine supplies cant make it to the local pharmacy, what are you going to do? Go to the hospital where they have the same problem? Hmmm…

4. SUPPORT. Like I said before, there will be no army waiting to help you, especially if we have ministers who publically declare “If you don’t like the crime in the country, then leave?!”. So what do you have? Each other. Form support groups with people that are like-minded. As your groups grow, your resources will grow too. Nothing I have suggested is illegal, nowhere have I incited violence, but if you see what is happening in the country, then it is your duty to prepare for it and to protect your loved ones.

Does any other government expect anarchy in SA? Yes. A British MI6 officer (British Intelegence), told our friend Gustav in January 2006, that 200 points were identified all over South Africa, by 120 MI6 personell since November 2005, where they can land their helicopters AND EVACUATE BRITISH PASSPORT HOLDERS from this country. Remember, countries do not go to these lengths, and fork out these expenses if they did not have a reason to expect that trouble was coming. So if MI6 is ready, we can assume that all other intelegence agencies have done the same for their citizens. Shouldn’t you?

And lastly I would like to leave you with one thought. History repeats itself, do not be as arrogant as to think that you are untouchable. For people who had military training, good for you, but remember that you might not be as fit as you used to be. For people with licensed firearms, it is one thing to own a weapon, and another thing to be able to USE it. Make sure that you practice because it does not come naturally. Knowing the theory behind what you should do, and ACTUALLY DOING IT, is two different things. Don’t be caught unaware.

Last question: From when should you be ready?

Answer: You should have been ready yesterday. MI6 has been on high alert since January 2006.

Who can help me? Die Suidlanders will do their best to assist the white people of South Africa, whether English, Afrikaans or German. But we will make this clear, like Nelson Mandela stepped in for the black people, we represent and step in for the whites and the whites alone. It is not a sin, however we have for so long, reached out to everyone except our “neighbour”. Love thy neighbour as ye love yourself. It is time that WE take hands with eachother, and be selfish and put our loved ones before all others. We can even organize self-defence training for our people. This includes the safe handling of licensed firearms, training for women when confronted with a rape scenario, first aid training and much more.

How do I contact Die Suidlanders?

Sy begin lag, toe steek hy haar in arm

“As ek my hande op dié arrogante barbaar kon lê, sal hy nie by ’n hof uitkom nie! En die beste advokaat sal hom ook nie op borg uitkry nie!”

Só sê ’n prokureurpa en eggenoot van die hooflanddros van Krugersdorp, nadat sy dogter vandeesweek helder oordag tydens ’n mislukte kapingspoging in Noordheuwel met ’n mes in die arm gesteek is.

Me. Doné Breedt (19), dogter van mev. Erina Breedt, hooflanddros en mnr. Deon Breedt, prokureur, se hoofslagaar in haar regterarm is byna morsaf gesny in die aanval. Dít toe sy geweier het om haar motor en selfoon aan ’n rower te gee.

Mnr. Jaco Mulder, VF+-lid in die Gautengse wetgewer en self ’n inwoner van Noordheuwel, sê Doné, wat tans haar eksamen in konferensie- en geleentheidsbestuur aflê, het haar aanvaller dapper teëgesit, toe sy Woensdag by ’n stopteken in Matroosbergstraat stilgehou het.

’n Man wat daar eenkant op die grasperk gesit het, het skielik langs haar oop vensterruit verskyn en gesê sy moet haar motor vir hom gee.

Sy het nee geskree en uit blote verbasing of senuweeagtigheid begin lag. Toe eis die aanvaller haar Nokia 5200-selfoon. Toe sy weer weier, het hy summier ’n knipmes uit sy broeksak geruk en haar regterarm begin steek. Hy kon daarin slaag om dié klein messie diep by haar elmboog in te steek.

“Ek het besef ek lewe en net daar omgedraai huistoe,” sê Doné.

Dié gesin se predikant het ’n “histeriese” Doné na die Bellstraat-hospitaal gehaas. Mev. Breedt was ten tye van die voorval besig met ’n saak en haar man was met ’n voorverhoor-konferensie in die Oos-Rand besig.

Dr. Jaco Jurgens het die snywond met twee steke geheg en haar ’n stewige dosis antibiotika toegedien, want “niemand weet waar daai mes was nie”.

Doné sê die besef dat iets meer ernstig met haar kon gebeur, het nog nie “ingesak nie”, maar dis “sy (haar aanvaller) arrogansie wat my die meeste pla”.

“Elke kind het ’n reg om na die winkel toe te kan stap as sy wil, sonder om aangeval te word, wat nog te sê met ’n motor soontoe te ry,” sê mnr. Breedt.

79-year-old 'hero' recovering

November 15 2007 at 10:59AM

By Rivonia Naidu

Roger Wright will forever be his family's biggest hero. And as he celebrated his 79th birthday on Wednesday, he was surrounded by his loving wife, Myra, his children, Julia Paterson, Simon Wright and Diane Whittaker, as well as most of his 10 grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

They described him as a great man with a strong will and fighting power.

Wright and his wife Myra were attacked in La Lucia on Monday night, when an intruder armed with a knife broke into their home on Wilden Place and attempted to rob the couple.

Wright's sheer determination and love for his family helped him fight off the armed attacker, who fled the scene.

However, Wright was seriously wounded in the chest and at the back of his neck as the intruder stabbed him several times.

He is now in ICU at St Augustine's Hospital, where he is recovering. Myra is traumatised and will receive counselling.

On Wednesday, with a traumatised Myra by her side, Whittaker said her dad was everyone's biggest hero.

"He's the greatest father ever. Our parents are the best, they're wonderful, loving and the most supportive parents," she said.

She said on the night they were attacked, her parents, who celebrated 55 years of marriage this year, were having a romantic candle-lit dinner when the intruder walked into their home.

"My mum said the evening started off so beautifully. She and my dad were enjoying their meal when my mom noticed the intruder, but because she couldn't do anything, my father got up and looked for him.

"The intruder then attacked my father from behind and a huge scuffle ensued. The intruder stabbed my father many times and he was bleeding profusely."

Whittaker said her mother then began screaming and the intruder went into the kitchen, picked her mother up and threw her across the room.

"The intruder flung my mother so hard that she hit her head on the fridge. He then tried to throttle her, but my father, although he was seriously injured, came back into the kitchen and pulled the man off my mother. I don't know what happened, but the man then ran away."

She said she was also thankful to her parents' neighbour, Anton Lailvaux.

"He saved my dad's life. He helped by trying to stop the bleeding and by calling the necessary emergency officials."

She said although the entire family was traumatised, they were grateful that her parents' lives were spared.

"They loved their home, I mean they lived in it for 35 years and I would have really hated it if their lives ended in a place that's so special to them.

Whittaker described her family as just another victim of crime in South Africa.

Killers laugh at jail term

November 15 2007 at 08:45AM

By Sharika Regchand

Two men seemed unfazed on Wednesday when sentenced in the Pietermaritzburg High Court to two life terms for the murders of Elaine Anderson and Patricia Kippen during botched hijackings.

Murderers Sibusiso Duma, 24, a taxi operator and owner, and Simphiwe Khesi, 33, his conductor, said the killings in Woodlands on October 14 were as a result of their wanting a vehicle to go home in.

Both appeared uninterested throughout court proceedings, and when KZN Judge President Vuka Tshabalala delivered sentence they laughed.

"They're dead now. What are they worrying about?" said one of the men to the other.

This affected the emotional family members of both victims even more.

Anderson's daughter, Anthea King, said the death penalty should be brought back. The Anderson and Kippen families said the men told the court they were remorseful, but their conduct did not reflect that.

Drinking

In their pleas, the men said they were at a tavern drinking. At 7pm, when they decided to go home, they realised that there would be no taxis available, so they had to hijack a vehicle.

At an intersection in Woodlands, they noticed Kippen's car, which was stationary at the stop street. Duma fired a single shot at it.

The car accelerated across the road and crashed into a pillar at a tavern and the patrons rushed to the car so the men could not take it. Instead, they took Kippen's cellphone.

They then came across another car, parked at the side of a road next to a church.

Anderson activated the hazard lights and tried to drive off.

Duma fired two shots at her and the car veered out of control and crashed. When they went to steal it, it was locked and they were distracted by another car.

In sentencing, Tshabalala agreed with senior state advocate Candy Kander's submissions that the aggravating circumstances outweighed the mitigating factors.

Kander had said that when violent crimes like that occurred, the functioning of society was affected. She said Kippen was a mother of two.

Anderson was a retired journalist and very involved in church work.

Tshabalala sentenced both men to 15 years for attempting to rob Anderson and sentenced Duma to 15 years for robbing Kippen and Khesi 20 years, in addition to the life sentences.

Dog watches over owner's body

14/11/2007 10:48 - (SA)

Hilda Fourie, Beeld

Pretoria - A vet had to be called in on Tuesday afternoon to tranquilise a sausage dog who watched over the body of his murdered 89-year-old owner.

The dog wanted to bite police officers who tried to come near the body of the former policeman.

R H Sonnekus, who worked at the former SA Criminal Buro, was murdered on Tuesday morning at his house in Lyttelton Manor, Centurion, where he lived alone.

Police director André Wiese said he had presumably been strangled.

Sonnekus's sister had suspected something was wrong when she could not reach him. She called his neighbour who then found Sonnekus on the kitchen floor, with his sausage dog next to him.

Police said it was not known how many suspects had attacked Sonnekus and initial investigations showed that little had been taken.

Charges of murder and robbery are being investigated.

Bejaarde slaan sy kneukels voos voor hy vermoor word

Nov 14 2007 10:49:37:833PM - (SA)

Hilda Fourie

Mnr. Sonnie Sonnekus (89) se dogter, Mignonette Scherman, het hom elke oggend om 08:00 vanuit Oos-Londen gebel.

Eergisteroggend was dít die laaste bekende stem wat dié oud-offisier by die voormalige Suid-Afrikaanse kriminele buro (SAKB) gehoor het.

Kort ná die oproep is Sonnekus in sy huis in Lyttelton Manor, Centurion, deur ’n onbekende aantal verdagtes oorval.

Dié huis is twee strate vanwaar ’n 83-jarige vrou verlede naweek só erg aangerand is dat sy nie kan praat nie.

Sy is steeds in die waakeenheid van die Unitas-hospitaal in Centurion.

Sonnekus se seun, mnr. Louis Sonnekus, het gesê die verdagtes het sy pa se hande en voete vasgebind en sy neus gebreek.

Sonnekus het versmoor weens bloed wat in sy keel was.

“Ek was Sondagmiddag nog baie kwaad vir my pa, want toe ek hier kom, was alles oop en hy het in die televisiekamer gesit en krieket kyk.

“Ek dink hy het gisteroggend (eergisteroggend) die hek en agterdeur vir Alfie, die worshondjie, oopgemaak en toe die telefoon gaan antwoord.

“Toe hy klaar gepraat het, was die mans moontlik klaar in die huis.”

Volgens Sonnekus bly sy pa die afgelope tien jaar, ná sy ma se dood, alleen in die huis.

Die laaste tyd wou hy glo nie meer die huis, waar hy 50 jaar gewoon het, verlaat nie.

“My pa is ons held,” het mnr. Sonnekus gesê.

“Sy kneukels was stukkend. Op sy ouderdom het hy steeds teen die verdagtes baklei. Hy was só gesond, ons het gewonder waaraan hy sou doodgaan. As hy aan natuurlike oorsake doodgegaan het, sou dit in die haak gewees het,” het hy gesê.

Sonnekus laat sy drie kinders, Mignonette, Louis en Neil, nege kleinkinders en twee agterkleinkinders agter.

German was stabbed before

14/11/2007 07:18 - (SA)

Linda de Beer, Beeld

Rustenburg - A German man who was stabbed to death at his home at the weekend, had been attacked there by knife-wielding assailants the previous Monday.

Captain Elsabé Augoustides said Helmut Goebels, 58, was found dead with three knife wounds in his chest by his gardener on Sunday.

When Beeld newspaper visited the home on Tuesday, traces of blood on the gate and in his driveway bore mute testimony to the struggle between him and his attackers.

There was a lock on the gate that apparently prevented Goebels from escaping.

Augoustides said Goëbels, who lived alone in his home on the corner of Alamein and Zand streets, had been stabbed in the head with a knife in a similar attack the previous Monday.

In that attack, however, he had managed to call for help and was not seriously injured.

The police had no record of the incident, which may not have been reported.

Lived like a hermit

Police were told of the attack by a security company who responded to Goebels's call at the time.

Goebels contacted the security company again on Saturday, after seeing two suspects on his property.

The suspects had fled by the time the security company got there.

It was not clear when the murder took place after the call-out.

The motive for the murder was also not clear.

Goebels lived like a hermit, with just a few friends in the area. He came to South Africa in the 1950s with his parents, who have both died.

He was apparently had no other family in South Africa.

Mesmoord op Duitser: Hy is voorheen ook aangeval

Nov 13 2007 09:43:28:557PM - (SA)

Linda de Beer

Rustenburg. – Die Duitser wat die naweek by sy huis in dié stad met ’n mes doodgesteek is, het verlede Maandag die eerste keer onder mes-aanvallers deurgeloop.

Mnr. Helmut Goëbels (58) se tuinier het hom Sondag dood met drie messteke in die bors in ’n blombedding gekry, het kapt. Elsabé Augoustides, polisiewoordvoerder, gesê. Bloedspatsels op die hek en in die oprit na sy huis het gister getuig van ’n worsteling tussen hom en sy aanvallers. Die hek was met ’n slot gesluit. Dít het Goëbels waarskynlik gekeer om te vlug.

Volgens Augoustides is Goëbels, wat alleen in sy huis op die hoek van Alamein- en Zandstrate gebly het, verlede Maandag in ’n soortgelyke voorval met ’n mes in die kop gesteek. Hy het egter daarin geslaag om hulp te ontbied. Hy was nie ernstig beseer nie.

Daar is geen rekord dat dié voorval by die polisie aangemeld is nie.

Die polisie het die inligting gekry by die veiligheidsmaatskappy wat op die oproep gereageer het.

Goëbels het die maatskappy Saterdagmiddag ook ontbied nadat hy twee verdagtes in sy erf gewaar het. Die verdagtes was egter skoonveld by hul aankoms.

Dit is nie seker wanneer die moord ná dié voorval gepleeg is nie.

Die motief vir die moord is ook nog onbekend. Goëbels het glo soos ’n kluisenaar geleef, met net ’n paar vriende in die omgewing. Hy het in die 1950’s saam met sy ouers na Suid-Afrika gekom. Hulle is intussen oorlede. Hy het glo geen ander familie in die land gehad nie.

It's elementary, my dear Watson

Date Posted: Tuesday 13-Nov-2007

It is always fascinating to watch the drama unfold when Reason and 'Church' clash. This time round James Watson (of DNA/RNA fame) dared to cross the De-Rationalized Zone of scientific inquiry to cast doubt on certain blatantly feel-good assumptions underpinning the lop-sidedness of Western multi-culturalism. His critique basically boiled down to questioning the irrational assumption that all the races have exactly the same skills and abilities (even in the 100-meter sprint), irrespective of the geographical and historical variables that fostered their development.

Given the wide acceptance of Darwin's Theory of Evolution, Watson's critique should actually have been just another standard scientific thesis that could've been proven or disproven by empirical testing. But lo and behold, the 'Church' of our time will not have its 'scientific authority' undermined…even if the evidence is clear for all to see.

After the 'Church' threatened to ostracize him from the fickle PC science community and emotion-addicted Oprahverse (popular culture), Watson immediately recanted – thereby following the time-honoured tradition of chickenhood among top proponents of the natural (hard) sciences. It is really interesting to note that while people like Galileo and Watson chickened out even though they could see the evidence with their own eyes; people (philosophers) like Socrates and Giordano Bruno were willing to sacrifice their very lives solely for the sake of a principle. Socrates took the hemlock voluntarily just to prove that the 'Church' can never have sole dominion over the question 'Why?', and Bruno embraced a fiery end solely for the innate human right to say 'No!' to the 'Church'.

Be that as it may, Watson really should've stuck to his guns because, seen from any reasonable point of view, he didn't do anything untoward. All science starts with problems, as Karl Popper explained. And the problems experienced when trying to integrate black populations into modern societies are clear for all to see. For example, 70% of all black babies in the USA are born out of wedlock and blacks are responsible for 59% of all the crime in the USA despite making out only 12% of the population. Monetary support equaling the Marshall Plan is pumped into America's inner-cities every 4 years just to keep them alive. The abovementioned are hard scientific facts.

These problems pale in comparison however to what is currently happening in South Africa, where one can witness first-hand the tragic collapse of, erstwhile, First World institutions like the criminal justice & health care systems and the infrastructure at the hands of the black government. Following from the above examples, and innumerable others, it is glaringly obvious that the current dogma of the 'Church' – that all the races are absolutely equal in all their abilities – is seriously struggling to find validation when confronted with hard empirical evidence.

That there is a problem cannot be doubted anymore; and to burn top scientists like Watson on the pyre of multi-cultural feel-goodness will definitely not solve anything…. and neither will 'mothering' or singing away the problem except, of course, if we can convince Brangelina and Madonna to each adopt 100 million black babies. Bono's U2 White Guilt crooning about 'The Saints that are (not) Coming' will also not provide any lasting solutions because the leaders of many African nations recently willingly restarted the debt cycle by voluntarily signing away their independence to fuel the insatiable appetite of the amoral Chinese… to make a quick buck. Whether a Chinese rock band called 'U3' will one day succeed in selling 'Yellow Guilt' to adults by emotionally blackmailing the democratically elected governments of sovereign nations while making millions of dollars by pandering to the whimsical emotional lives of pubescents, is rather unlikely. But then, stranger things have been spawned in Oprahverse.

Having been blessed with one of the best brains on the planet, Watson should've taken cognizance of the fact that one must be very wily when challenging the 'scientific authority' of the 'Church' so brazenly. His scientific doubt would've been much better served if he had had the extra gray matter to package his critique in such a way that it would've appeared to be indispensable to the 'Church's' fight against the latest 'Universal Evil' namely, Global Warming. Maybe if he had asserted that only intelligent people are able to save the planet from a man-made climate-induced Armageddon within the next 10 years, he would've been able to leave the PC Papal Chambers with only a blush and a slight burning sensation below the waistline. Hell, I think even old Galileo himself would've been able state with more testicular fortitude that our planet was not the centre of the Universe, had he added that the Pope was the centre of all Existence…even before the Big Bang (pun intended)!

But alas, Reason once again had to kneel before the dogma of the do-gooders of our age who still believe that man is a tabula rasa. And one actually cannot blame a run-of-the-mill empiricist like Watson for being completely out of his league in the ballgame of universal ideas and a-historical ideals. What poor old Watson could never even have phantomed in his most positivistic dreams was the fact that his Double Helix discovery was infinitely less complicated than the Double Standard Hypocrisy comprising the lop-sidedness of Western multi-culturalism.

He should've realized by now that, for example, whites and blacks are not even equal in death. When whites kill whites everything is still normal and when blacks kill blacks (e.g. the Rwandan genocide) everything is still acceptable. But once the killing transcends the colour line all reason and fairness flies out the window faster than the white smoke (or Oscar/Nobel Prize) heralding in the reign of the next PC Pope. When blacks kill whites, like the 2000 white farmers brutally tortured and slaughtered since Mandelatopia descended from La La Land, it is deliberately ignored (or spin-doctored away) lest the 'Church's' eternal wisdom appear flawed. It is as if the lives of whites have even less value when they have been killed by blacks. This is in stark contrast to the value that is added to the lives of blacks who have been killed (or threatened) by whites. One only has to compare the Rodney King and the Jena Six beatings to understand how fundamentally different the value attributed to life is between blacks and whites. Thou shalt not kill…except if s/he is white!

Another sterling example of the Double Standard Hypocrisy of Western multi-culturalism is the rationale underpinning Affirmative Action and Black Economic Empowerment. Blacks are as fast as pigs in Palestine to claim preferential treatment for the fact that Westerners initially refused them the keys to Rome (slavery, colonialism, Apartheid, etc) but they conveniently forget that they had no universal a-historical claim to Roman citizenship in the first place. Rome was built on/by the blood and sweat of Westerners while blacks were still doing the Iron Age spear-chucking thing in Darkest Africa. It is therefore completely unfair to demand the juiciest bits of Roman society at the expense of those who had the unique moral rectitude to make you part of something you never even could’ve conceived of in your wildest dreams. It is like demanding a top scholarship at an elite university overseas even though you didn't even have a kindergarten back home.

Be that as it may; there can be no doubt that the whole drama surrounding Watson's naive attempt to challenge the 'Church' of our time stinks to high heaven. And what is even more disconcerting is the fact that the majority of Westerners actually fervently follow this folly. Have we no pride anymore in our achievements as a completely unique civilization? Are we to sacrifice ourselves, our hard-won knowledge and experience, (like Jesus) for the sake of 'Others', who are as directionless as a fart in a hurricane solely because we have willingly forsaken our quest for the Truth…and nothing but the Truth, so help us God? It truly is elementary, my dear Watson.

Daughter tied to dying dad

12/11/2007 08:43 - (SA)

Daleen van Manen, Die Burger

Pretoria - A young woman who returned to South Africa after two years overseas, was tied to her dying father, who was shot by robbers during a robbery on the day of her return.

"I begged them to take everything and go so that I could take my father to hospital, but they shook him, laughed and said he was okay."

A dazed Helene Kerkhof, 21, told on Sunday how four robbers had stormed into 53-year-old Rian Kerkhof's cottage in Moreleta Park, Pretoria, on Thursday and shot him. They then terrorised her for more than an hour.

Kerkhof died on Friday morning.

Helene, who returned from Taiwan on Thursday, was already asleep when the robbers overpowered Kerkhof inside his home in De Ville Bois Mareuil Street.

"I woke up hearing voices and a shot. I knew we were being robbed and called my father. Four men stormed into my room, picked me up, hit me and threw me down next to my father. He was seriously wounded.

"They tied us to each other and kicked me several times. One of them tried to pull up my shirt, but I laid curled up and asked him not to," she said.

"I told them to take everything and go. My father was shot through the right side and was bleeding to death. He was in a lot of pain, but kept asking if I was okay."

Helene and her father had to watch for more than an hour how the robbers searched the house and ate from the fridge before they eventually left with two laptop computers, a digital camera, DVD-player, iPod and two cellphones at about 00:30.

"They tried to lock us into the house, but had trouble with the key. We waited a while and I untied my feet. My father untied my hands."

Helene went outside to find help, but heard the robbers talking in the garden.

"I hid under a bush until I was sure they had left before going to the nearest house for help."

Kerkhof was taken to Pretoria East Hospital by ambulance, where he underwent emergency surgery.

He died on Friday morning shortly before his wife, Marilette, 47, and his three other children, Marain, 19, Adrian, 17 and Katrien, 13, arrived at the hospital from Stellenbosch.

"I looked forward to returning to South Africa, but I cannot live in a place where such pigs are terrorising the community. Nobody is safe. It's not enough to rob. They want to kill," said Helene.

"I am angry. Is nobody going to do something about the senseless gruesome acts?" she wanted to know.

Police spokesperson inspector Paul Ramaloko said nobody has been arrested in connection with the incident.
