Jaypee Smuts writes from Hazyview: Jan 31 2011 – Farmer Giep Goosen of the Harmonie-block and his wife, their little son and two of his little friends were held hostage upon their return from church on Sunday. Arriving at the farm-gate, the farmer had stopped to open the gate when five armed black men stormed from the woods and climbed into his vehicle. “
As the crime-fighting website Farmitracker.com shows (two maps below), there has been a very sudden surge in armed attacks, hatespeech and government-originated propaganda against whites ever since half-July 2010. From that time, black workers also started receiving many warnings at taxiranks, enroute between work, at home in the townships and in shops, that they would have to start murdering their white employers – or be murdered themselves. http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2010/06/july-12-all-whites-will-be-killed.html
‘Goosen’s 5 attackers already knew that the child was his only son… and threatened to shoot him‘
Jaypee wrote: “The five men were all armed. They ordered Goosen to drive to the homestead and enroute they asked him specifically ‘where is the money for the pumpkins’. He farms with butternuts and also sells them from his homestead. However Goosen did not have any cash on him except R50 in his wallet and gave this to them. They then threatened to shot dead ‘his only son’ if he didn’t give them all his money. And then they shot dead all three of his dogs right in front of everybody.
They ordered to unlock his safe – there was no money in the safe – they took his firearm, and tried to drive off in Goosen’s vehicle. Then his wife was ordered to start up the vehicle and they chased off with it: it was found abandoned later near Ofcolaco not far away from their farm. This is the sixth attack on farm-owners in this region within a two-month period, writes Smuts.
Frikkie Scheepers attacked in Dec 2010, another woman and three farmers fired at:
“In December 2010 Frikkie Scheepers and his wife were attacked. Thereafter two neighbouring farmers were robbed of their firearms and another neighbouring farmer was fired on when he tried the backdoor to try and find out what was going on. “Early January an old lady was attacked near Letsitele – she however shot off a finger of one of the attackers and they fled. There also was another attack on two elderly people about which I can obtain no information. And then there was the attack on Sunday on Goosen and his family.
Definitely an inside job:
“Fortunately there was no loss of lives during these attacks. The Goosen attack definitely was an inside job – they knew that the son was the only child; they knew the pumpkin-money was kept at the homestead and they knew about the firearm in the safe… “ He concluded: “One cannot believe that there still are people who trust their house-workers and sleep easy at night. I hope this was a wakeup call for him. Next time he might not be so luckly, and not get out of it without a loss of life.”
