Ignored by the media and hidden from the world, which was encouraged to delight in the lovable Vuvuzela tooting black South Africans during the recent World Cup matches, the violent, racist, genocide of that country's white population continues apace.
It is estimated that at least 35,000 whites have been murdered in South Africa since the end of Apartheid in 1994. Of these, at least 3,131 are white South African farmers and their families, some reports put the figure as high as 3,700, with the result that being a white South African farmer is now statistically the most dangerous occupation on the planet.
Two particularly shocking attacks occurred in one day this week leaving four victims dead. The first being the murder of the Potgieter family at their farm in Lindley a small town situated on the banks of the Vals River in the eastern Free State which was established by an American Presbyterian missionary named Daniel Lindley, who was the first ordained minister to the Voortrekkers in Natal.
There are varying reports as to how 40 year old Attie Potgieger died, initial reports stated he was attacked with a machete however, it now appears he may have been shot. All reports confirm however that his wife Wilna and the couple's three year old daughter Willemein, pictured above at a slightly earlier age, were dispatched, execution style, with bullets to the back of the head. It chills the blood to imagine what sort of mind can murder a three year old child in such a manner.
Also chilling is the note left behind by the Potieger family's killers which simply stated “We have killed them. We are coming back”.
Mercifully, no reports have so far indicated that the family were tortured prior to their murder, which is so often the case with such crimes. However, the South African police are notorious for suppressing such information in their efforts to portray these attacks as being crime related, rather than the hate infused genocide which they clearly are.
Unusually, given that most to the farm murders go unsolved, six people have been arrested, three of whom are apparently workers on Attie and Wilna Potgieger's farm.
Marthie Erasmus, killed with a sledgehammer
Meanwhile, on the same day Thursday December 2nd, in Koster, the centre of South Africa's maze production, situated in the North West Province, a group of armed black males attacked an Afrikaans farm couple on the farm Hartbeesfontein, in the Moedwil district of Koster. Mrs Marthie Erasmus, 63, was tied up on her bed and then the gang bludgeoned the defenceless woman to death with a 16 pound sledgehammer - for no apparent reason.
Husband Chris Erasmus, also 63, was tied to his chair and brutally beaten about the face and eyes. However he survived the attack and managed to free himself after the attackers fled.
If this was happening to any other race in any other country it would be world news. Because these are the white victims of black hate in the "Rainbow nation" the world does not want to know (or maybe it does not want you to know).
