Farm murders in South Africa are both political and racist. White farmers are brutally murdered, some tortured and some have their throats slit after being tortured. It is rare for a white farmer to survive a farm attack, only those that fight back stand a chance while the rest are butchered like animals.
It has now been 14 years since Peter Mokaba invented the “kill the boer, kill the farmer” slogan and it is exactly since then that the farm murders started to escalate. Most white farmers have since fled the country while those that remain are under heavy attack.
Today when the police minister Nathi Mthethwa spoke at the AgriSA conference he had the following ignorant words to say:
“We do not see it as anything else political or racist, we see it as just crime.”
So then what about that boy that killed all those people in some squatter camp up in South Africa, was that crime? That was the skielik shooting. Apparently when white people are the targets and the crimes are committed by black people it is crime, when it the other way around it usually is “racist”, with a bunch of “important” people commenting on the “racist” act.
How about the 4 boys that messed around with the workers at that college, that must be crime as well then?
He continued to say:
“We cannot sit on different sides of the fence and point fingers, we need to recognise that most farmworkers and farmers are valuable assets.”
There is a word for all this, it is called clueless. Whether he tries to ignore the facts or blatantly acts like the farm murders are nothing more than crime cant be answered.
14 Years after Mandela joined in and sang “kill the amabulu” the slaughter and genocide against white farmers continue in South Africa.
Last week South Africa saw another gruesome animal like murder of 61 year old Belgian businessman Etienne Cammaerts on his Limpopo farm.
He was found after being kidnapped and murdered. He was found with his hands and feet tied and his throat slashed at the side of a dam or water pan. His farm vehicle was still at the scene and nothing was stolen. It is speculated that he was hijacked when he went to drop farm workers.
The farm that was in a area marked for “land reform” was thought to be in a safe place as Etienne moved their to escape from the stress.
He and his partner lived on the farm for 6 years before the murder.
Genocide in South Africa continues against white farmers.
