- Muller, Helgard, 66, Frankfort murdered in farm ambush by 2 black males, Feb182011
- Costa, Alberto, 44, farmer: murdered in firefight with blacks who crawled underneath electrified fencing, Cloetesdal, Stellenbosch
In the Free State last week, the unarmed 66-year-old Helgard Muller was murdered on his farm Mara 15km from Frankfort in an ambush at 10am by two black men in their twenties – who waited for him after they had tied up the wheelchair-bound Mrs Muller and her housekeeper an hour earlier.
And Alberto Costa, 44, was also murdered on his homestead Cloetesdal near Stellenbosch in the Western Cape. Costa went down fighting: he shot back, injuring one the black attackers with his shotgun. They had dug a hole underneath the the electrified fencing and started firing at him. His friend Rudi Buys said Costa was engaged in a large black-economic-empowerment project on three farms which kept many workers in work. His friend ex-Springbok Hempies du Toit of the wine-estate Annandale said he is devasted. ‘It’s hardbreaking. Alberto was the salt of the earth, hard-working, successful, he and his parents were born South Africans’. More rural murders and attacks also were also reported last week. They are listed underneath this article.
NO POLITICAL COMMENT FROM ANC, DA, – and ENGLISH-LANGUAGE MEDIA IGNORES FARM MURDERS:
The latest farm murders have reportedly ‘revulsed’ political party leaders from the Freedom Front and the Christian Democratic Party. Other political parties did not bother to comment. The FF and CDP spokesmen inaccurately referred to these inexplicable execution-style murders as ‘crimes’ however ; pandering to the ANC-regime’s claims that these all were just ‘ ordinary robberies’. The CDP and FF demanded that ‘the government stop handling “crime “with kid-gloves.’ The Afrikaans newspaper Rapport was the only one to publish these latest farm murders. The Sunday Times and other Sunday publications completely ignored them, as usual.
Former agricultural minister Cobus Dowry, who now is the highly-paid director of an agricultural union which allows only blacks-only membership, claimed in his statement to Rapport newspaper that he was ‘disgusted’ and that it was ‘high time that farmers get better protection’.
Hope Julius Malema is satisfied now… they keep on singing that song:
Christian-Democratic Alliance spokesman Rev Theunis Botha noted that since Zuma’s speech at parliament on 10 February, one farm attack has occurred every day. “Periodic condemnation of the ANC does not work especially when they insist on singing (banned) songs such as Shoot the Boer,’ he said.
Indeed: the ANC has spent millions in legal costs on appealing the banned song in the High Court, demanding that they must be allowed to continue singing the genical hatespeech song.
ANC spokesman Jackson Mthembu justified this demand by saying at the court that ‘you Afrikaners have shot us dead by the thousands in the townships. Now it’s our turn to shoot you dead.’
PROSECUTE MALEMA IN THE HAGUE – PETITION: We, the undersigned, support the prosecution of Julius Malema in terms of international law for inciting genocide against the Afrikaner minority of South Africa, singing songs like “Shoot the Boer”. http://apps.facebook.com/petitions/1/prosecute-julius-malema-vervolg-julius-malema/
Mr Helgard Muller had just turned 66 years when he died from his wounds in the ambulance to the hospital. Mr Muller was ambushed an hour after two black men had arrived at the homestead, demanding money and keys to the safe. They tied up Mrs Muller and the housekeeper. When Mr Muller arrived home, he was murdered.
He is survived by three sons Nelis (40), Niel (39), Helgard jr. (27) , daughter Mrs Haneke Coetzee (36), eand seven grandchildren. Neighbour Eddie Muller, said ‘this makes a person feel bitter. I hope Julius Malema (ANC youth leader) is satisfied now. When they keep on singing that song that’s what will happen. “
Other recent rural murders targetting Boers:
- please note: the agricultural-unions record ONLY the names of commercial farmers on their ‘farm murder’ lists. Thecommercial unions completely ignore the murders on agricultural smallholdings – although they also produce excess-agricultural products for the produce-markets. The agri-unions also ignore the murders of white tourists and residents at rural tourist lodges etc.)
