Krugersdorp, South Africa – The farm murders in South Africa declined during the World Cup according to information we have. That means that from the start of the World Cup until now farm murders have basically halted.
Now new questions arise, is there someone that can halt these farm murders? Are they being planned by someone that has the power to stop them until after the World Cup, maybe political?
We are not saying that is the case because we have no direct proof of it but we do ask the question, why did the farm murders decline all of a sudden.
If the answer is because the police presence is bigger and better, that would be incorrect because the police focus is on the cities that host the World Cup.
Certain communities are finding the scenario strange because right before the World Cup the murders and attacks were up to 3 or more a week.
Another cause might be that less people report on the farm murders, less newspapers and media companies want to put the focus on the farm attacks. That point is valid
The truth on our side is that we get reports directly from the communities that are affected and they have been silent as well.
Is this the calm after the storm or is the real storm coming?
