Afrikaners must move from the cities

”If the Afrikaner  nation wants to survive, they must create a new cultural heartland – as did the Jews after the European holocaust…

Jaco Kleynhans, ex-chief of communications at the influential Solidarity trade union, recently moved to the Afrikaner-Christian enclave Orania with his family as its new publicist. He writes that ‘the Afrikaner, population 3-million, urgently needs a ‘new cultural headquarters’ which will help them survive as a nation and help them keep intact their traditional way of life. He urges Afrikaners to ‘move out of the cities” where they are struggling to survive as a nation.

———————–

Afrikaners need a central headquarters where they can make certain that their language, culture, traditions and history are protected. And Orania on the very edge of the Great-Karoo desert, is that place, writes Jaco Kleynhans.

Orania visit by Pres Jacob Zuma Sept 21 2010

Picture: SA pres Jacob Zuma recently visited Orania ‘on a state visit to the Afrikaner heartland.’ Next to him is its mayhor Carel Boshoff III… Afrikaners should create their new heartland in Orania if they hope to survive as a nation.

—————————————————————————-

Kleynhans views Orania as the ‘ future heartland of the Afrikaner nation ” and explains why in an article in Beeld newspaper:

“Six years ago I got to know the American heartland while travelling on an Amtrak-train from New York to Los Angeles. I’d heart a lot about the heartland but got to know it on this journey. I met a rancher in New Mexico who wanted to know whether Gary Player still played golf; and the Amish-lady with her handmade suitcase, handing out home-baked cookies to her fellow-passengers. Whenever the train stopped, whether it was Doge City in Kansas or in Lamar, Colorado, and you walked into a diner, spoke to the station’s workers and was greeted by friendly residents, you know you are in the American heartland, the place where American cultural traditions are kept alive.

“Their big cities however are just like any other Western city – a mixture of people who chase around hunting for their survival or only live for materialism. It’s in the heartland that I got to know the ‘real’ Americans. People who live the American dream, who belief in God, the power of families and who harbour the wonderful belief in honest, hard work.

“By the same token, the Afrikaner’s future survival also does not lay in the big cities of Africa. Even though our majority of people now live in the cities, urban landscapes do not represent the Afrikaner’s heartland. There’s nothing wrong with living in big cities – however every nation needs its own heartland. A place where you can be yourself first, and a world-citizen second.

“A friend recently mentioned at a meeting that what the Afrikaner sorely lacked right now was our own ‘head-office’ – a place where the Afrikaner’s language, culture, traditions and history in Africa can be safeguarded. A place where Afrikaners can be Afrikaners first, South Africans and Africans next.

“A head-office as a place where we can install our monuments, our libraries and musea; where Afrikaners can get together, and occasionally even escape to…

“During the past seven years I lived in Pretoria “… (*the city which was founded by Boer-Afrikaners during their Great Trek north). “As a stranger newly arrived from the Western Cape, I saw the Afrikaner rapidly losing his cultural grip on their capital city. They replaced their traditional commemoration of the Day of the Vow at the Voortrekker Monument with shopping trips to a Menlyn mall. The number of Afrikaner visitors to the history of our people, such as the Kruger House and countless other Afrikaner-monuments, have dropped dramatically. After all, in the city there are so many other things one can do.

And the Afrikaner has to fight for survival against the ANC’s black-economic-empowerment laws, crime, the collapse of municipal services, and the deliberate anglicisation of our universities such as the University of Pretoria and the University of South Africa. Where can one still find a shopping centre with Afrikaans signposting? When can the Afrikaner still commemorate our own cultural days in the Jakaranda-city?

Afrikaner-Christian education is threatened by Cosatu call to close all private schools Sept192010

Picture: the Afrikaners are languishing in the cities under the rule of the African National Congress, with their Western cultural- and Protestant-Christian traditions overwhelmed by a vast Bantu-majority. Without a cultural heartland, the Afrikaners as a nation will die within the next generations if they stay in the cities, warns Kleynhans…

Where is the Afrikaner heartland?

“It’s clear: the Afrikaner as a small, scattered nation will soon melt away and languish in the cities,” he writes.The Jews only became certain about the survival of their nation once they had set up an independent place of their own. Today Jews live all over the world but they have tied an umbilical cord between their Faith and their mother Israel. “

“Where is the mother where Afrikaner can attach their umbilical cord? The Afrikaner needs a new head office – and what better place than South Africa’s heartland. Nearly smack-dab in the centre of the country, on the edge of the Greater-Karoo desert, lies Orania, where Afrikaners have built up a small foothold of their own over the past 20 years.

Anti-Afrikaner propaganda machine lies about Orania:

“Unfortunately, the anti-Afrikaner propaganda machine quickly branded Orania as a ‘white’ and even as a ‘racist’ enclave where hard-core Afrikaners ‘tried to continue the apartheid system’. People clearly misunderstood Orania when it was first founded.

  • “Firstly, it’s not an ‘enclave’. There are no high walls around Orania which seperate residents from the outside world. Orania is a place where people are received as visitors with open arms – and especially Afrikaners who want to strengthen their cultural ties as Afrikaners.
  • “Orania also is a place where the reality of South Africa’s cultural diversity was accepted long before 1994 – and where active cooperation between various races aren’t seen as a stumbling block – but as a necessity.

There are Xhosa and Zulu heartlands – why not an Afrikaner heartland?

Afrikaners and Zulus If Zulus can maintain their culture in their own heartland why not the Afrikaner in Orania Kleinhans writes: “A senior ANC-member recently said that he often returns to the East-Cape ‘just to be able to speak Xhosa again, and to practice his cultural traditions.’ President Jacob Zuma, who also recently visited Orania, also is seen to do exactly the same thing when he visits his Zulu-heartland village of Nkandla”. (picture above)

————————–

Kleinhans concludes: “With the Zulus in KwaZulu-Natal and the Xhosas in the Eastern Cape clearly having a cultural heartland of their own, why can’t the Afrikaner also have his own place? My family and I moved to Orania a month ago. We want to work on the dream to create a place for the Afrikaner – our own badly-needed ‘head-office’….” http://www.beeld.com/In-Diepte/Nuus/Afrikaners-se-heil-le-nie-in-stede-nie-20100922

Orania and Kleinfontein: the future of Boer/Afrikaner survival:

    UNPO map of unrepresented Nations and Peoples includes the Afrikaner AFRIKANERS JOINED UNREPRESENTED NATIONS AND PEOPLES’ ORGANISATION IN THE HAGUE TO GIVE THEM INTERNATIONAL PLATFORMS AS AN ETHNIC-MINORITY

    The Boers/Afrikaners all hope that private sonamed ‘white’ towns like Orania in the North-Cape, and Kleinfontein, 30 km east of Pretoria, will serve as ‘cultural seeds’ for a future homeland which can protect their unique language, religion cultural and ethnic-heritage on the southern African continent. Today, 300 residents live in Kleinfontein and some 800 in Orania. Afrikaner-residents there are concentrated on self-labour: they do all their own work, run their own schools and municipal services and take care of the Afrikaner old and the poor. Permanent homes are mushrooming in both towns. But when asked how long it will take to grow into a homeland, Kleinfontein town board member Jan Groenewald admits “not in my lifetime.”  Since the end of apartheid in 1994, many hundreds of thousands of the 3-million often well-educated Afrikaners have fallen on hard times because the ANC government has made laws barring their access to the job market. On the edge of some major SA towns, squatter camps of homeless Afrikaners spread like Okie camps in 1930’s California. In 2001, Solidarity trade union’s Helping Hand charity counted 120 camps and by the end of 2009 this had grown to 430 camps for destitute internal Afrikaner refugees – housing some 800,000 empoverished, homeless and unemployable Boers and Afrikaners countrywide. To represent their unique minority internationally, the Afrikaner has also joined UNPO – as indeed did another small SA ethnic-group, the  Venda (Vhavenda) (map above). http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2009/11/future-of-boer-and-orania.html

Racist cops who massacred 4 whites sentenced to 205 years

Massacre of four white men by two Indian-SA cops who picked a racist fight by taunting a patron about the size of his genitals…

——————-

The SA news media jokes about this massacre of four unarmed men, referring to it as ‘the penis-trial”

September 29 2010 DURBAN HIGH COURT – Two former police  officers –  the Indian-South African brothers Brian and Leon Steven of Phoenix – were sentenced to a combined 205 years in prison for murdering four Afrikaner men and injuring another one during a horrific racist massacre at a pub at Merseyside in Umbilo, KwaZulu on September 10 2008. The court had earlier been told in mitigation of sentence that the two convicted killers ‘were practicing Christians who had not intended to kill the victims and did not deserve to be removed from society’. However the court disagreed.

——————-

Strydom Shawn Afrikaner victim of racist massacre Umbilo Park KZN Sept 10 2008 Originally, five Asian-South African men were arrested for the massacre in which five unarmed Afrikaner men were gunned down execution-style with police pistols at the restaurant while they were watching a football-game.  The two Steven brothers – already suspended for previous unrelated crimes – on Monday were found guilty of murdering the four whites – using their SAPS-issue guns.

Three of the victims — Nick Janse van Rensburg, 57; Shawn Strydom, 33, (picture right) and Rory Menzies, 40, (a widower and father of four young children), died on the scene;  while two others, Shawn  Edwards and his father Bruce, 57, were injured. Bruce Edwards later died of his injuries in hospital.

Murdered family man Menzies left four orphaned children:
Shortly after the massacre, journalist Kamini Padayachee of the Natal Mercury newspaper Kamini.padayachee@inl.co.za had interviewed relatives of the murdered men, noting that Menzies’s four children were left orphaned and that the children, aged from 13 to 21 years, were devastated by his death. “The children lost their mother to illness a short while ago and now they are orphans. They are all very traumatised.” The widower ran the Durban branch of a foodwaste disposal company and was a dedicated family man, reported Padayachee. http://www.news24.com/News24/South_Africa/News/0,,2-7-1442_2461005,00.html

Gruesome slaughterhouse:

The crime scene was described by the restaurant’s security guards as a ‘gruesome slaughterhouse’ and the patrons of the pub and the adjacent restaurants owners and patrons were left deeply traumatised and needed trauma-treatment after the massacre. Umbilo is a primarily ‘white-‘ dominated suburb in KwaZulu-Natal. It was also said to be ‘very unusual for Asian men to visit this pub’.

  • Enforce Security company spokeswoman Brendi Baard said security guards who had attended to the scene had described it as a slaughterhouse. “We had to calm people down and ask them to clear the scene. It was very gruesome.”
  • Alan Gale — employed at the Coimbra Restaurant next door to the pub — went to look for a friend next door and found himself in the line of fire.”When I heard the first gunshot I thought it was a cracker. I looked straight at a man pointing a gun. At the second shot, I hit the floor. Around seven shots were fired. People were screaming and diving on to the floor all around me. I saw a wounded man with blood flowing from his side. He was pleading for help and then passed away in front of me.”

When the shooting stopped, patrons reported that ‘a group of Asian men had split up and some drove off in a blue Toyota Tazz without number plates. The rest drove away in a white BMW. The security guard on duty managed to get the number plate and reported it to the police,” it was reported at the time. A musician at the Coimbra also related his version of events on condition of anonymity. “The shots were so loud they sounded like they were being fired in the restaurant. I rushed outside and saw three guys leaving the bar. A big guy was holstering a gun. “They got into a white BMW and screamed off. A man ran out of the bar after the car, bleeding from a wound in his groin, and then he collapsed. “Inside the bar one man was dead from a head shot. Two were alive and moaning and one of their friends was throwing chairs around and screaming.”

The local Asian community immediately launched a propaganda-campaign, telling the Natal Mercury two days later on Sept 12 2008 that “the White men had called the Indian men ‘coolies’ and that the white men had confronted the Indians”. However the Natal Mercury also quoted restaurant patrons as saying that “they had seen one of the Indian men follow a White man into the toilet.” A policeman also ws quoted as saying  that ‘racist insults had been hurled back and forth from both groups but that the evidence was that one of the Indians had started the entire incident when he’d made insulting remarks about the White man’s penis-size”. http://www.int.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=1&click_id=13&art_id=vn20080912061840115C538645

Charged originally were Police Inspector Brian Steven, 39, of Point police station; Police Inspector Leon Steven, 33, of Mayville police station;  local residents Naeem Sadick, 22; Nithanandan Ganess, 37, and Julian Naidoo, 33; the news media wrote at the time. The Steven relatives constantly claimed in interviews with the news media that the men had been’ justified’ in killing the unarmed Afrikaners ‘because of racist taunts’. http://www.capeargus.co.za/index.php?fArticleId=4611524

  • South African media.. the ‘penis-trial…’
  • The South African news media have always degraded the true extent of this racist massacre by describing it jokingly as ‘the penis-trial’ .After a mutual punch-up the Asians had left abruptly – as it turned out they had gone home to fetch their SAPS-guns from home. The five whites meanwhile returned to their table to continue watching the football game, believing the row was over. However the Steven brothers returned after fetching their SAPS-weapons, and mowed down five unarmed whites at the restaurant. 

Judge Guido Penzhorn of the Durban High Court sentenced ex-cops Brian Steven to 115 years for four counts of murder and one count of attempted murder while his brother Leon Steven was sentenced to 90 years in jail for four counts of murder and one of attempted murder. Three other men were also arrested after the massacre by a special police task-force.

“Acted in self-defence against racist whites”.

Throughout the trial, the family and friends of the accused men had organised demonstrations outside the court-room, claiming that the Asian cops had ‘acted in self-defence against racist whites.’ 

The Durban High Court also heard on Tuesday by defence counsel Jay Naidoo that ‘both accused (brothers) were practising Christians… there were no direct intentions to take the life of the deceased… there is little to suggest that they should be permanently removed from society.They have served the community as police officers.” In arguing for a lesser sentence, Naidoo submitted that Brian Stevens, diagnosed with a heart-condition, was a 41-year-old man with three children, aged 12, 16 and 17, who were all attending school; his wife is a nurse at Entabeni Hospital. He was a policeman for 21 years, leaving the force as an inspector.”  His present job was as a clerk at a logistics company and he was ‘a first-time offender.”Leon was married with two children, aged eight and nine and works at the Ocean Echo as a clerk. Prior to his arrest he was a policeman for 16 years as a sergeant.” He said Leon had been based at Durban Central police station and Brian at Mayville police station.Naidoo said the brothers had very strong family ties, “judging by the number of family members who had filled the courtroom to support the brothers.” He told the court that “evidence suggested that the crime was caused by racial slurs, excessive consumption of alcohol and a fight between Brian and one of the patrons, Thomas Vivian.”

The defence claimed: “There was no direct intention to take the lives of the deceased. Shots were fired “with no intention to shoot at the deceased. Having been dismissed at work is enough punishment. The accused lost their pension fund, their lives will never be the same again.” He said there was little to suggest that the brothers should be permanently removed from society.They served the community for 16 years and 21 years.” http://www.themercury.co.za/?fSectionId=&fArticleId=1.682307&fFeed=region_46

“ Why did the armed brothers force their way into the pub?

However, the prosecution (successfully) argued otherwise, reported the Natal Mercury. “Prosecutor Gary Williams said the murders were premeditated: ‘The racial slurs were over and the patrons saw that there was a firearm… these patrons went in and tried to close the door from the accused,” said Williams. “Why did the brothers want to go into the pub, why were they armed? Why did they force their way into the pub?”

He told the court that the intention was to enter and fire shots at the patrons. It did not matter who was shot. “When they entered the pub they entered with the intention to kill. This was premeditated. Premeditated does not mean hours or days, it can be at the same time.”

  • Williams said four lives were lost and four families suffered. He said the brothers could have informed the patrons that they were police officers and possiblyhave even closed the pub.

Instead, the brothers chose to take the law into their own hands and had shown no remorse.He said there was no evidence to suggest that they had drunk a lot of alcohol that could have impaired their judgement. “Any sentence less than life is inappropriate, society demands that these accused be removed from society as long as possible.” Leon and Brian, wearing the same clothing as they did for Monday’s court appearance, looked tired. The judge had ruled on Monday that they should remain in custody and they had spent the night in a holding cellOn Tuesday, they were taken away to start serving their life-long sentences. http://www.themercury.co.za/?fSectionId=&fArticleId=1.682307&fFeed=region_46

New Crystal-meth drug looks like candy

New crystal-meth drug sold to SA kids looks and tastes exactly like candy:

This is a new crystal-meth drug circulated at South African schools,  known as ‘strawberry quick ‘. It looks like a sweet – the well-known strawberry pop-rocks candy that sizzles and ‘pops’ in your mouth. It also smells  like strawberry and it is being handed out to even the smallest children in school yards. They  are calling it strawberry meth or strawberry quick.

—————-

Kids are  ingesting this thinking that it is candy and are being rushed off to the hospital in dire condition. It also comes in other flavours: chocolate, peanut butter, cola, cherry,  grape and orange. Please instruct your children not to accept candy from strangers and even not to accept candy that looks like this from a friend (who may have been given it and believed it is candy) and to take any that they may have to a teacher, principal, etc. immediately. source: LouErasmus@hotmail.com

2010-09-27 Coenie Pitout, 35, fertiliser-factory representative in Koster, survives being stabbed twice, shot 4 times by 3 attackers who stole nothing.

Alta Snyman of Beeld newspaper reports that 35-year-old Coenie Pitout, who works as a sales representative for a fertiliser-company, pretended to be dead after he was shot and stabbed by an unknown number of black men who had invaded the family home in Koster. Pitout, the father of two little girls, is in serious condition in a local hospital, where he is awaiting surgery to remove two bullets. The “incident” occurred at around 02:30 on Sunday when Mrs Tania Pitout, 33, woke up from a noise. The family had watched TV on Sunday night and the children had fallen asleep in the living room. They had only moved into the house six weeks earlier.His brother-in-law Justus Jones told Beeld that Coenie got up to investigate. “Tania wanted to go and have a look but just before reaching the kitchen-door she felt uneasy and turned back to fetch Coenie,’ he aid.”He believed that it was probably one of the kids and didn’t even take his gun.’ Just as he reached the hallway leading to the kitchen he was shot at point-blank range – the shot was so close that his face was blackened, and the shot strafed his cheek and shot off half-an-ear.The injured Coenie didn’t hesitate: he attacked the gunman who dropped the weapon, which was then picked up by a second attacker while a third man rushed into the fray and stabbed Coenie with a knife in his right-side. He was shot a second time, this time in the left-side, said his brother-in-law. Meanwhile the girls woke up and little Antoné managed to reach her mom in the  hallway while Imké was grabbed by one of the gunmen.

  • Coenie tore his daughter from the man’s grip and shoved her down the hallway. Tania ran with the girls to the living room, locking the door behind her – trying to get the GUN FROM THE SAFE – but couldn’t.She then broke the window with a hairspray-bottle and fled with the children,’ said Jones. She fetched help from the neighbours.

Meanwhile their injured dad noted that two of the attackers tried to flee through the livingroom window where the burglar-bars had been bent open earlier. One of the gunmen then loomed up behind the injured, unarmed Afrikaner and shot him through the left shoulder. Pitout fell on his back and pretended to be dead, praying that the terror ‘would end’, said Jones. The black man then walked up to him, kicked him in the face and shot him in the chest. That shot broke one of his ribs and he now needs surgery to remove two bullets.

“Coenie has lost an awful lot of blood. The doctor will operate as soon as he gets a bit stronger,’ said Jones.

  • The family cannot understand why the injured Coenie kept being attacked, stabbed and shot while the attackers could have fled at any time – he posed no threat to them whatsoever. The black men never spoke to him at all – and did not make any demands for money or car-keys or whatever.

The family was also attacked in the previous home they had lived in  six weeks earlier – and the only things stolen then were Tania’s car-keys, he said. The three black males who attacked Pitout the second time were described as ‘very sturdily built’. SAPS spokesman Lt-col Lesego Metsi merely ‘confirmed the attack’. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Man-maak-of-hy-dood-is-maar-rower-skiet-hom-in-bors-20100928

White SA woman stabbed by guard in Bryanston secure complex – neighbours refuse to help, told the pleading woman to shut up…

Bryanston woman attacked in security complex neighbours too scared to help sept292010 iol co za

By Angelique Serrao – The Star – A white woman in upperclass Bryanston, Sandton, was robbed and stabbed – allegedly by the man hired to protect her – and when she ran to her neighbours, they refused to help her. The 58-year-old woman, who does not want to be identified, lives in a secure complex in Grosvenor Road in Bryanston. The four clusters in her complex are guarded by security guards around the clock.

The woman said she has always been security conscious and recently put security bars and trellis doors on her property. On Tuesday last week, her husband went on a trip overseas and she came home at 10pm after visiting friends. “I tried to open the gate with my remote, but it wouldn’t open. I then hooted for the security guard to open. I waited three or four minutes before I saw him peering over the gate before it opened. Already then I had an uneasy feeling, but I ignored it,” the woman said.

  • She parked her car and when she approached her house, she noticed that the door was open. “I knew then that something was wrong, and I turned around and ran,” she said. But the intruder, whom she would later identify as the security guard who earlier that day let her out of the complex, knew she was there and he jumped on her. “He was on top of me and started stabbing me. I didn’t feel anything. I didn’t know then I was being stabbed. I thought he was just hitting me,” she said.

“Please sir, help me I’m dying” – but the neighbours would not open the door…

She managed to push the man off her and he ran away. “I started slipping as I ran. When I looked down, I realised it was my own blood,” she said. The woman had been stabbed twice in the neck – once on the side and once in the back. Her right wrist was slashed. She ran to the cluster next door, a Bed and Breakfast  — but all the doors were closed and nobody would open when she screamed for help. “I took my shirt off to try and stop the bleeding in my neck and ran to the next cluster,” she said. “I knocked on the door and was screaming ‘I’ve been stabbed’.

  • They threw a shirt at me as if I was a dog that had been run over…
  • A man looked out of the window upstairs and said he wouldn’t open the door for me. I said ‘Sir, please help me I’m dying. I have children, please help’.” She said her neighbour said to her: “Stop screaming. Be quiet. Lie on the grass and wait, I’ve called ADT (private security company).” Eventually, his wife threw a T-shirt down to her to cover herself. “They threw a shirt to me as if I was a dog that had been run over,” the woman said. She estimates that she lay there for about 30 minutes.

And it was only after much begging that one of the neighbours called the woman’s son, who arrived and took her to Morningside Medi-Clinic. She received about 20 stitches and the doctor said she was lucky because the main artery in her neck had been missed by just a millimetre. She still has her bloodied clothes and she said when she went back to the complex this week, she saw her own blood all over the driveway and on her neighbour’s window. Her neighbours sent her flowers the next day and she said they had been too scared to help her.

  • “What kind of humanity do we have,” she asked. “They could see me bleeding, and they wouldn’t come and help. I wish people would have the courage to come and help others when they need it.” Only a laptop had been “stolen” from her home —  but the guard who attacked her had left his uniform inside and her bags filled with her things had been left by the door.  A charge of attempted murder has been opened against the man —  but the woman said “police have not been able to find him yet”. Warrant Officer Moses Maphakela said “he could not check on the case because Sandton police station’s computer system was down”. The woman has been receiving trauma counselling. “This man, someone who was supposed to protect me, tried to murder me. That changes you,” she said. – The Star

—————————

Father Justin Stirton, 60, of the Parish of the Immaculate Conception in Underwood Road, Pinetown, KwaZulu, was taking the night’s collections to the church office when he was confronted by the four gunmen. The attack is the latest in a string of armed robberies at places of worship in greater Durban – there have been several incidents since the beginning of the year.

  • Police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Vincent Mdunge, said members of the Pinetown crime prevention and Durban K9 units were tipped off about a possible robbery during the 5pm Mass. Two suspected robbers were shot dead by police, another man was arrested and a fourth man escaped.

Mdunge said undercover officers stationed themselves in the vicinity of the church and watched as a white VW Jetta drove up and three men alighted and entered the Roman Catholic church. “They pretended to be church-goers and took their places inside the building. The fourth man parked the getaway car at the nearby Spar, which is about half a kilometre away,” Mdunge said. As the Mass was drawing to a close, the man drove the vehicle into the church parking lot and entered the building.

  • “The priest was left alone after the service. While he was taking the collection money into his office, the men pulled out firearms and demanded the cash. Police officers entered at the same time and ordered them to surrender.”

The men allegedly refused and instead opened fire on the officers. Police returned fire and shot down three men, killing two. Mdunge said the priest used the distraction to flee and found safety inside the church. “The third suspect was bitten by a police dog on his hand while the fourth man escaped, despite being shot. We are now searching for him,” Mdunge said. No one else was injured during the gunfight.

After the shooting a few concerned parishioners, still in the area, returned to comfort the priest. ER24 spokesman Derrick Banks, said paramedics declared the two suspects dead and treated and stabilised the third man at the scene before he was taken into police custody.

  • Mdunge said two unlicenced guns – a .38 revolver and a 9mm pistol – were recovered. “We also seized their vehicle and we are checking to see if it is stolen. The firearms were sent to our forensic science laboratory to ascertain if they are linked to other robberies, such as those at other places of worship.”

When contacted last night, church officials declined to comment. It’s not known if the priest had been aware of the uncover-police surveillance before the attack. Police are investigating a case of armed robbery with aggravating circumstances.

  • Female police officer also arrested for armed robbery at Umlazi Zion Church:
  • In August there were three attacks on places of worship in Durban. The Imam Hussain Mosque, Madrasah and Cultural Centre in Ottawa, Verulam, was attacked by seven men, who also made off with worshippers’ belongings and two cars, a Lexus and VW Polo.In the other incidents, two worshippers were shot by a group of armed men who stole a car from Ebenezer Ministries, in Bayview, Chatsworth.Worshippers at the Valley Temple in Verulam were robbed of their belongings and three cars were stolen while they were praying.Earlier this year, Umlazi Zion Church members were held up by a group of armed robbers, including a female police officer. In this case the thieves were later arrested. – Daily News nondumiso.mbuyazi@inl.co.za

Two constables filmed stealing SAPS weapons from Pretoria police-vault get off scott-free

2010-09-27 Sonja Carstens of Beeld newspaper reports that two black SAPS constables who had initially been charged with stealing SAPS weapons got off scott-free when DeWildt shopowner Jorge Dos Santos, on whose farm the SAPS loot was stored, pleaded guilty.The case against constables Daniel Hlongwane and Simangaliso Gama were withdrawn a year earlier at the Pretoria magistrate’s court ‘after their dossiers got lost’.

  • HOWEVER – the two constables were actually filmed stealing the police weaponry and equipment from the SAPS vaults in Pretoria.

The state had initially charged Hlongwane and Gama with looting amongst others two R1-highpowered assault rifles; R5-ammo; four smoke-grenades; four tear-gas grenades, seven flares; a laptop computer, a large torchlight, and a night-vision scope between Julie to October 2006.  The two men were actually filmed by close-circuit TV while stealing the items from the vaults of the Maupa Naga-building – the SAPS security services and crime-prevention unit’s headquarters in Arcadia, Pretoria. All three men were arrested after police raided a storage facility on the farm of De Wildt store-owner Mr Dos Santos where the looted SAPS weaponry was (unwittingly) stored. Legal representative of Dos Santos, Wessie Wessels, said Hlongwane “had asked Dos Santos to store some goods for him because he was in the middle of a move’. Dos Santos said he ‘agreed and only noticed later that weapons were stored there.’ Dos Santos then ‘immediately reported the matter to a police-friend and repeatedly started phoning Hlongwane, asking him to remove the items. Wessels said ‘the state was ready to launch the case from 23 July last year.’ However Dos Santos agreed to admit guilt to weapons-possession after a copy of the police-dossier was handed to his legal counsel.He will be sentenced on 4 February next year. “The State asked Dos Santos to testify against constables Hlongwane and Gama. However after waiting a year for a summons to submit his testimony, I started enquiring about the case,’ said Wessels.

  •  “That’s when I heard that the case against constables Gama and Hlongwane was withdrawn because the SAPS-dossier had gotten ‘lost at the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court’.

“I offered  to submit a copy of that same dossier which the SAPS had already handed to me, to the investigating officer so that Hlongwana and Gama can be charged. “However my repeated requests about the progress of this case has fallen on deaf ears,’ Wessels told the newspaper. Beeld also submitted written requests for information to the SAPS – as SA journalists now are required to do to obtain information from the government. And the SAPS spokesman in Gauteng province, Lt-col Eugene Opperman, also said that last week he also submitted requests for information about this case to the national SAPS spokesman Col. Vish Naidoo. However by the time of going to press, Naidoo failed to respond to repeated messages and SMS’s asking him to reply. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Verlore-dossier-laat-2-van-polisie-loskom-20100927

Bruwer family Centurion robbed twice by ‘well-informed armed men in SAPS uniforms’

2010-09-28 Seugnet Esterhuyse of Beeld newspaper reports that the Bruwer-family was robbed twice within a week at their Highveld, Centurion home – by ‘robbers in police uniforms’. And events during the second robbery indicates that the Lyttleton SAPS may be closely involved in the robberies, said the family.

André Bruwer (53) said his wife Laurenza, 51 and daughter Luandri, 20, were home alone on Sunday – a week after the family had been robbed after they had forgotten to turn on their burglar-alarms. During the first robbery, a TV-set, sound-system, cellphone, laptop computer and safe were looted.

Mr Bruwer said when he submitted this information to the SAPS at Lyttleton station, he also volunteered the information that the robbers had ‘left behind valuable items including a second safe- and that they planned to install security cameras soon.”

On Sunday, with the two women alone at home, ‘two black men in police uniforms’ came knocking at their front door, claiming that they were ‘investigating the house-robbery’;  that they had ‘arrested three suspects’; and that they ‘wanted more information’.

  • Mrs Bruwer invited them in – and one man immediately pointed a gun to her head, and three more armed black men, all in police uniforms, then walked in. One demanded to have the ‘code to the second safe’ and demanded to know ‘where the security cameras’ video-materials were located’.

Threatened to gang-rape the women:

They threatened to ‘repeatedly rape’ Mrs Bruwer and her daughter ‘until she gave them the code’.  The terrified Mrs Bruwer truthfully told them that only her husband had the code.
Luckily they believed her – and tied the two women up, demanding their jewellery.
“These men in uniform arrived, and asked for very specific items and the coincidence is just to big that exactly those same items were mentioned to the police when we reported the first robbery,’ said Mrs Bruwer.

Now Zuma can afford to pay his striking civil servants their wage-increase demands:

  • EU wastes another 123-million Euros on “primary education” in SA:

EU South Africa primary education deal 123m Euros

WHERE WILL HE GET THE MONEY FOR NEXT YEAR’S DEMANDS?

It has been reported from Brussels (Belga-DPA) that the EU and South Africa signed an agreement on Tuesday in which 123-million Euros will be donated for primary-school education in South Africa.Signatures were placed by EU-president Herman Van Rompuy, commission chairman José Manuel Barroso and SA president Jacob Zuma.
Barroso also promised to lower the trade-barriers between the EU and the Southern Africa Development Community.

Does ABSA secretly syphon money from clients’ accounts to sponsor sport?

"This is how our money is stolen" claims Emmarentia Olivier, who works in the catering department of the golfing estate Sanlameer on the KZN south coast. Her email is  catering@sanlameer.co.za  – and she wrote in an email sent to her friends: 

"Here we go again: now ABSA bank wants to select the Springbok rugby players. I am an ABSA client myself and have been talking to them and the police with one question: where does ABSA get the money to sponsor soccer, rugby Curry-Cup and now the Springboks? I caught ABSA out in a small transaction. On 3 September, ABSA deducted R19,50 from my bank account which they said was earmarked for "ABSA REWARDS".

I contacted them to find out exactly where I ever gave them permission for this. Their reply: I was purportedly approached in May  2010 by a telemarketer and I ‘gave permission’. I did NO SUCH THING. Then when I confronted them about this, I received an SMS:

  • "Dear Mr? You have been deregistered from Absa Rewards program…"

Olivier writes: "Work it out for yourselves: R19,50 paid by 1-million clients — who never gave permission — equals R19,500,000m a month. Multiply this by twelve and that’s R234,000.000m a year. That’s how we ordinary citizens are conned out of our money. This must be fraud – and that’s where they get those millions for sponsorships. And then ABSA has the nerve to prescribe the race of players in the Springbok team..  how much longer are we going to allow our sporting events to be undermined like this? How much longer are we going to allow our traditions be trampled underfoot by placing people in posts only based on their skin colour? We must stand up and fight for our rugby pride. Check out your own bank statements and see who else is being defrauded. Is there any police-officer or judicial expert willing to take on this case on our behalf, please?"
Ask ABSA at
http://www.absa.co.za/absacoza/

The managing head of ABSA, Ms Maria Ramos, told an English language newspaper that ABSA ´might use its power as sponsor to lay down rules on the way in which ´transformation´ … ie. removal of white players … will have to be carried out in national rugby teams. She reportedly said that ´whoever pays the piper, calls the tune in transformation in rugby". The Afriforum civil rights movement has launched a petition campaign against the South African bank due to their political stance against white rugby players. Entire story on http://bit.ly/bUsKct

Police found ‘very fat sheep with yellow ear tag’ underneath the bed in Rietfontein squatter camp

Monday 27 September 2010 By Cynthia Dreyer Madibeng Pulse – Hartbeespoort police followed the aroma to a sheep braai and found two men sitting in front of a shack with a lamb on the spit on the fire and beers in hand.

  • While two men sat in front of their braai in Ten Rooms squatter camp at the weekend relishing newly roasted lamb, police investigated inside their shack only to find another sheep, this time live and “very fat” kept under the bed. One wonders how long the sheep would have had to stay there, hidden from prying eyes and no doubt hungry mouths had it not been for the police!

Even if the sheep was hidden, there’s no way the thieves could have disguised the smell of deliciously roasting meat wafting in the air from neighbours or the police. The sheep had a yellow tag on its ear, and police are hoping that the owner will come forward and claim the animal. Police had to ride around with the sheep in a police vehicle until they could take it to the Hartbeespoort Animal Welfare and from there it was taken to Makalani.

The search operation which took place from about 03:00 on Friday morning by 55 members of staff using 15 vehicles and a helicopter netted 29 suspects. Ten Rooms informal settlement was targeted and then Marius camp. Of those arrested, 19 were illegal immigrants, three were selling liquor at shebeens, four were in possession of possible stolen goods and two were arrested for common robbery.

  • Mr Romano van der Spuy, vice Chairman of the Hartbeespoort Community Policing Forum, told MadibengPulse that when police arrived at Marius, it was already light and some of the illegals ran away from the helicopter, but were captured by police. Many illegal minors were taken to the police station but released without being charged.
  • Police were also able to gain entry to a Rietfontein plot with a search warrant where stolen goods are suspected of being stored. They recovered laptops and computers and made arrests.

Standard Bank account holder formal SAPS complaint: R34,600 illegally taken from account

Cynthia Dreyer of Madibeng Pulse newspaper also reports that the Hartbeespoort police have referred a fraud case to the Commercial Branch at Klerksdorp after a man told police that his Standard Bank account had been debited with R34 600 without his authorisation. He reported the matter on Wednesday.

  • In a second incident at the same resort, three mountain bikes worth R5,200 were stolen after thieves cut the fence to get in some time on Friday night. A case of theft and malicious damage to property has been opened.

At the Good Shepherd Retreat in Meerhof, an alarm was set off to which the response company reacted, but they were too late to recover the bedding and curtains that were stolen. Thieves had forced a window open at one of the cottages to gain entry.

At the Welgegund Pelindaba Mission, thieves smashed a back window before stealing a car radio worth R3 000 as well as a CD player and a battery worth R600.

At the Alpha Training and Conference Centre in Broederstroom, a sports bar was broken into and a DSTV decoder worth R1 900 and a DVD player worth R2 000 plus towels were taken.

US journo: Afrikaners plead for end to violence

 

Plight of Afrikaners in South Africa needs world attention – and an end to violence…”

September 24 2010 – NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana, USA. American journalist Carol Forsloff writes in her blog newspaper “Green Heritage News’, that the violence against the Afrikaners continues to mount, as a minority group in South Africa pleads for relief from violence and retribution and seeks self determination for itself. The Afrikaners want the world to know and worry the international groups do not respond.”

The entire article is reproduced below. Ms Forsloff is a liberal US journalist who abhors all forms of violence. She campaigns relentlessly for the rights of the hard-hit people of New Orleans – plunged into misery and destitution by natural disasters and the recent devastating pollution from the imfamous oil-platform explosion’s oil spill. She also is a strong supporter of the Quaker belief in peaceful coexistence and ‘gentle persuasion’.

She condemns the relentless murder attacks by black gangs who target Afrikaners, writing:

“Human rights organizations have yet to denounce the treatment of the Afrikaners in any significant way.  Minorities are seen ordinarily as the people of color when there is conflict.  In this situation, the problem is different, becoming the mistreatment, cruelty and violence against a group of people who are a minority at the hands of people who seek vengeance, retribution and power.  They do this to the helpless and hapless folk who cannot defend themselves against growing hordes of marauders who invade their homes and land, according to those who have long documented, and continue to document the tragedy.”

Her article is reproduced below.
