RURAL MURDERS of WHITES in SA: sources, links


    Explanation: Out of the more than 3,800 rural murders of whites who were recorded murdered in all rural regions of South Africa since 1987 up to April 27 2011, a total 1,489 of the murder-victims were commercial farmers: i.a. registered members of the Transvaal Agricultural Union and Agri-SA.  The commercial farmers’ unions do not appear to maintain a detailed record of the white rural dwellers who were murdered on rural sites such as agricultural smallholdings, wildlife reserves, found murdered at rural roadsides or killed at rural holiday-sites such as seaside, lakeside and riverside resorts. Solidarity trade union also maintains seperate lists of white rural dwellers who were murdered.  The exact number of white rural dwellers who were murdered in South Africa is not known: the South African police does not maintain seperate archives for these often extremely brutal and gruesome murders since 2006/7, claiming that these were all just ‘ordinary robbery-attacks’ which should not be listed seperately. However these murders show identical modus-operandii also seen in the excessively-violent murder attacks against white families in the cities and suburbs. The site also noted a marked increase over the past year of these attacks against whites, often accompanied by hatespeech and cruel mutilations: and noted that more whites are murdered each day in urban and suburban South African  homes than in rural areas since the end of the FIFA World Cup 2010 in June 2010.

  • The excessively-violent attacks on whites – rural and urban –  in South Africa rose to an average of once a day from January 2010 – to fifty attacks a day immediately after the end of the FIFA World Cup 2010 …even peaking to 100 attacks one day in February 2011…

    No food production on 90% of 5,-million hectares of redistributed farms leased by the State to black families’ : but ANC regime goes fullsteam ahead with land-confiscations of productive white-run farms…
    Yet despite the fact that 90% of the 5,9-million hectares of ‘redistributed farms’ now lay totally idle and produce no food whatsoever – according to the ANC Surveyor-General and the Department of rural Development and Land Reform on 31 March 2011,  the South African government is still going full-steam ahead with its land-nationalisation programme. And this is done despite the fact that the government does not even know the exact extent of state-owned land-sites because of its faulty record-keeping at the  SA Deeds Registration System, as was pointed out by the Chief Surveyor-General of the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform. ’ He urged in his statement to aSA parliamentary committee that “the many discrepancies discovered in the land-ownership of specific land-parcels be urgently investigated and corrected”.

    2011: Only 14,000 of original 100,000+ privately-owned, registered commercial farms now in private South African white ownership:
    What this careful survey of these disreputable records in the SA Deeds Registration Office did reveal, was that there’s considerably more land owned by the State than they themselves even realise: that from the original 100,000+ privately-owned food-producing farms (“Boer farms”) , only about 14,000 farms and smallholdings now are registered as being ‘white-owned commercial agricultural sites’- all the other farms are in the hands of the State already. Yet the ANC still claims that 87% of all the land in South Africa is ‘in white or foreign hands’…

While the then-SA Police Minister issued a strongly-worded statement on July 1 2010, condemning widespread ‘xenophobic hatespeech ‘ and rumoured plans to ethnically-cleanse and kill black ‘foreigners’ in South Africa, the Minister also totally ignored the complaints lodged by Afriforum civil rights movement about the widespread hatespeech and death-threats targetting whites in South Africa – with chanted slogans at public ANC-meetings which even call for the mass-murders of all ‘white babies”. Complaints were lodged against Ncobo Sodo and Mfundo Dlungwane for coining the new genocidal hatespeech slogan: One Bullet, One White Infant. Both government officials still are in their jobs despite these official complaints. Pres Jacob Zuma also still chants the slogan “Bring my machinegun’ on public platforms. What messages are the ANC-regime really giving to their own black electorate through such events?. –

    One Bullet – One White Infant ’ trial of POTGIETER FAMILY’S MURDER SUSPECTS:  MAY 16 2011 BLOEMFONTEIN HIGH COURT – six male adult suspects: charged with Dec 1 2010 execution murder of 2-year-old Wilmien Potgieter together with her parents Wilna and Attie Potgieter, Lindley FS farm.

    Potgieter family five of 6 massacre suspects Lindley courtDec132010

    LINDLEY, FS. Volksblad newspaper was able to publish all six names of the black murder suspects accused of slaughtering the three-member Potgieter family on December 1 2010 on their farm Tweefontein outside Lindley. One previously unidentified youth, arrested with five adults, turned 18 in the youth-detention centre at Kroonstad and was moved to the adult section on his birthday on 17 February, the Lindley Court was told at their latest appearance.In the dock: Tshololo Tello Mischach Letala (18), Tapa Mopontola Mofokeng (23), Paulus Samson Vusimuzi Khumalo (22), Telleko Sex Seekoei (19) , Stemmer Boy Mofokeng (22) and Diphapang Motaung, 18,\.Three – namely Khumalo and the two Mofokengs were farm-workers who were ALLEGEDLY paid R500 each to help carry out the massacre of their employers. The six remain in custody.They were ordered to appear on 22 March in the same court to plead to the murder-charges. Potgiter Wilna and Attie massacred on Lindley FreeState farm by Sothospeakers with small child Willemien 3Potgieter Willemien 3 massacred on Lindley farm execution style Dec12010Diphapang Motaung who turned 18 in prison, also is suspected of being the ‘youth’ who was ‘initiated’ into the gang when he allegedly executed two-year-old Wilmien Potgieter by picking her up by her hair and firing a bullet through her skull – and then dumped the baby on top of the body of her mother Wilna, 36, also killed moments before with a headshot. This information came from police sources, speaking to Volksblad. Her father was hacked to death with pangas. The SAPS however claims it was just a “plain, ordinary murder/robbery incident”. Even the country’s deputy-agriculture Minister Dr Pieter Mulder didn’t believe the cops: he demonstrated outside the Lindley court-room in December against their bail-applications – angrily telling the news-media that the massacre “was racially-motivated”.

    Seperate list of black female farmers murdered by male relatives over land-rights issues:

    We also maintain a seperate list of black female-farmers who were murdered by male relatives over land-rights issues;  also listed: ‘coloured’ and ‘Indian” farmers/smallholders who were murdered over land-rights issues. The word “Boers” refers to all whites: :SA blacks refer to all ‘whites’ as “Boers’ – in their genocidal hatespeech chants “ Kill the Boer ’ and ” Shoot the Boer  ” they thus refer to all ‘whites’; not exclusively to white, Afrikaans-speaking agriculturalists only…. About 96% of all these reported rural murder victims are ‘white’ Afrikaans-speakers – people who also refer to themselves as Afrikaners and/or Boers – a small, ethnic European minority which represents less than 6% of the total SA population of 50m people. English-speaking whites represent 3%. The list also includes English-speaking commercial ‘white’ farmers;  foreign visitors, white immigrants killed in all rural areas such as game-lodges, resorts at lake- and ocean-sides, farms. Excluded from these stats: ‘crimes of passion’ ; rural inter-family-related disputes; fights amongst farm-workers.

    1-million black subsistence farmers in South Africa; 12,000 commercial ‘white’ farmers

    There are some 1-million black subsistence farmers in South Africa who however produce very little food for the commercial market and mostly survive with government poverty-relief subsidies. It is estimated that  less than 12,000 commercial ‘white’ farmers remained by the end of 2009 (from the original 85,000 in 1994) – and there are no more than 1,000 commercial grainfarmers left according to Grain-SA. These (mostly white) commercial farmers only have access to crop farmland on the country’s less than ONE Percent of the entire land surface… South Africa is a very arid country with limited surface-water – and only 6 percent of its entire land surface has ever been suitable for irrigated and dry-land commercial crop-farming..

I prayed loudly, calling on Jesus. A Godly feeling of peace came over me when the guns failed to fire.’ The attackers then turned around and left the young man with his other siblings in the house. Many residents in the district also saw the youth’s deliverance as a miracle, and  have since flocked to hear his testimony, the Volksblad newspaper reports.

He used to work as the chief-of-staff in the Premier’s office.Peter Miller, former Finance MEC – a long-time associate and family friend, said two armed men entered and shot him “stone dead, in cold blood, without warning,” The police were called and they found a 9 mm cartridge and a spent bullet on the scene.Miller said Dorning’s death was “a totally unnecessary killing. He worked for me for most of his career. He served the new South Africa in a very high capacity with distinction for about 15 years.He was a really generous and warm-hearted person.He was a highly educated man and an accomplished historian. Much of his PhD thesis, which covered recent South African history, including the bush war, is still classified. A kind and good man has been wantonly killed when he still had so much to offer.” It was reported later in The Witness that among the three arrested men had been a Howick falls SAPS-inspector Michael Sokhela.
    • VAN GREUNEN – Ex-Kameeldrift SAPS CID-inspector Marius van Greunen executed: seven shots March 29 2008
      Six Kameeldrift police officers used their own money, their own cars, off-duty time and their own phones to hunt down the killers of ex-cop Marius van Greunen, 38, Kameeldrift .”Seven times. Why did they shoot him seven times?” asked devastated widow Ilze van Greunen, 34, about the death of her husband, Marius, 38. reported Hilda Fourie, Beeld journalist, Pretoria . The former CID-inspector, the father of two small children, was found murdered in his bedroom. Marius had been an inspector in the criminal investigation department of the Kameeldrift police office before resigning about a year ago – encouraged to do so due to the black-economic-empowerment anti-white hiring programme. After that, he worked in a brickyard.  Ilze said: “They could’ve just shot him once, tied him up or hit him over the head. It wasn’t necessary to kill him’. Ilze and her children, Kay, six, and Zian, four, had been on holiday in Durban when Marius was killed on Saturday and they caught a flight back to Gauteng on Saturday afternoon. She took the children on holiday for their safety: the family had a burglary at their home about two weeks earlier and the children “did not even want to go to the bathroom alone anymore”. “I just wanted to take them away from everything,” said Ilze. Marius’s brother-in-law, Louis Esterhuizen, 32, who lived on the smallholding in a separate house, said he was woken up by shots about 03:00 on Saturday. He didn’t worry about it too much as apparently shots were fired regularly in the area. “I got up and looked around outside for movement, but didn’t see anything,” said Esterhuizen. “On Saturday morning I went to town. When I got back about 11:00 I became suspicious because Marius’s car was still in the driveway. “All the doors of the house – except the door of his room – were locked and there was a ladder leading up to Marius’s balcony. “I went into the house and found Marius on his bed in his room. He had been shot seven times. It’s an image that will always stay with me,” said Esterhuizen.,,2-7-1442_2297626,00.html

  • MORE NAMES AND DETAILS are ALSO MAINTAINED BY Solidarity trade union’s  list of farm-attacks, from Jan 1993 to June 2009: access all 70 pages on:

  • For latest updates:


    90% of all the ‘redistributed farms’ are idle:
    In South Africa, one can only fully understand why its food-production has dropped so rapidly over the past 19 years when it is realised that a total of 1,155,508 land parcels in the SA Deeds Registration System already are state-owned land by 2010 –  of which 1,085,084 are urban sites, 64,976 sites are farms and 5,448 are ‘agricultural holdings’.

    • The government itself admitted in March 2010 that a full ninety percent of all these state-owned land parcels, their socalled ‘redistributed farms’, produce no excess food whatsoever.

    Six percent of entire land-surface suitable for food-cropping:
    In 1994, there were more than 85,000 privately-owned, food-producing farms in South Africa, which employed more than 1,6-million workers, who lived on the farms with their families. These farms produced excess-food on less than FIVE PERCENT of the entire surface of the country.

    by 2001, fifty-six percent of all the total land-surface in South Africa already belonged to the State – which in turn allocates land-use-rights certificates to black families;  while 44% of the land including in the cities and towns, was in the hands of white people. 
    By 2010, the Grain-SA Cooperative reported a membership of only 1,000 grain-producing farmers in the entire country. The rest of the members in TAU and Agri-SA produce other food-crops and products from livestock – while many farmers also turned to the lower-overhead wildlife-farming and game-lodge tourism and hunting industry. The CIA observations from space have also registered the fact that less than 0,5% (one-half of a percent) of the entire South African land-surface is still being used for irrigated agricultural-production.

    South Africa is a very arid country with irregular supplies of running surface-water in many regions, and where less than six percent of its entire land surface has ever been suitable for viable agriculture in its entire registered food-cropping history, ever since the arrival of the VOC-ships at the Cape of Good Hope. The country’s agricultural production is largely reliant on the eleven-year drought/excessive rainfall cycle caused by the El Nino/El Nina weather phenomenon in the southern hemisphere. The commercial farmers (“Boers”) have successfully adapted their production-methods to this phenomenon over the past two centuries, preserving water in farm-dams for times of drought and devising ingenous ways of dry-land food production.

    Food production on 90% of ‘redistributed farms’ is non-existent:
    Yet despite the fact that 90% of the 5,9-million hectares of ‘redistributed farms’ now lay totally idle and produce no food whatsoever – according to the ANC minister in March 2010 –  the South African government is still going full-steam ahead with its land-nationalisation programme. And this is done despite the fact that the government does not even know the exact extent of state-owned land-sites because of its faulty record-keeping at the  SA Deeds Registration System, as was pointed out by the Chief Surveyor-General of the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform on 31 March 2011. He urged in  a report to the parliamentary committee that “the many discrepancies discovered in the land-ownership of specific land-parcels be urgently investigated and corrected”.

    2011: Only 14,000 privately-owned, registered commercial farms remain:
    However what this careful survey of the disreputable records in the SA Deeds Registration Office did reveal, was that there’s considerably more land owned by the State than they realise: that from the original 85,000 privately-owned food-producing farms (“Boer farms”) , only about 14,000 farms and smallholdings now are registered as being ‘white-owned commercial agricultural sites’- all the other farms are in the hands of the State already.

    Farming in South Africa is the most dangerous job in the world:
    Producing excess food under the present dangerous conditions in the countryside also has many farmers pull out and sell up – especially after the farmer or a member of his household has been murdered. It clearly is increasingly difficult for these farmers to continue producing food while large numbers of armed gangs from the cities endanger their families and attack their homesteads. putting their farms under virtual siege.

    Out of 3,800 rural murders targetting whites, 1,489 were commercial farmers:
    Out of the more than 3,800 murders recorded in rural regions of South Africa since 1994 up to April 27 2011, a total 1,489 were commercial farmers, registered members of either the TAU or Agri-SA.
    By 2006 12,4-million black people got poverty-grants, food-aid
    By 2006, South Africa’s shrinking number of taxpayers already paid R56.8-billion in poverty-grants to 12.4-million poor black recipients (one-fifth of the black population).

    0,5% of entire SA land surface is under irrigated food-cropping:
    By 2010, the Grain-SA Cooperative only had about 1,000 grain-producing farmers left in the entire country. They still produce an impressive amount of food under the most dangerous farming conditions in the world – but not nearly enough to feed the entire South African population. The country now needs to import grain-products in massive quantities from off-continent. The CIA observations from space have also recorded that less than 0,5% (one-half of a percent) of the entire South African land-surface is still being used for irrigated agricultural-production.

    More reduction of farm-land by proposed Security of Tenancy Bill
    This handful of commercial farmers, besides having to work in their remote fields under these dangerous conditions, also face even more loss of farm-land by the newly proposed  “Security of Tenancy Bill’.   The Transvaal Agricultural Union of South Africa (TAU) notes on 16 March 2011 in its submission to the parliament’s  Portfolio Committee on Rural Development and Land Reform that the proposed “Security of Tenure Bill ‘ makes it clear that the SA Constitution’s written guarantee that ‘ all are equal before the law’ does not apply to (white) farmers: “they are the only group of people of whom it is expected to grant permanent residence on their property. Nobody else in the public or private sector has to comply with this rule.”

    by 2001 56% of all the land-surface of South Africa already belonged to the STATE

    By 2001, 56% of all of South Africa’s land already belonged to the State which granted land-use access to some 1-million ‘new black farmers’ and their families. Fourty-four percent of all the land, including in the cities, was in the hands of white people. And at the same time, food-production and the income it generates for the state, has also dropped dramatically:

    5,9-million hectares of ‘redistributed farms’ (90%) are unproductive:
    SA’s Minister of Rural Development and Land Affairs Gugile Nkwinti warned on March 2 2010 at a press conference that 90% of all the ‘redistributed farms’ were  unproductive, with 5,9-million hectares of these formerly white-owned, once very productive farms laying idle, their modern multi-billion Rand irrigation-infrastructures stripped and vandalised by looters. He blamed the entire problem on ‘foreign-land ownership’ however – threatening to crack down hard, saying:

    “We have not talked about the revenue that the state has lost because farms totalling 5.9 million hectares, which were active and accruing revenue for the state, were handed over to the people. And more than 90% of those farms are now not functional. They are not productive, and the state loses revenue. We cannot afford to go on like that,” he said. Nkwinti said the “proposed reform of the land tenure system would address both the foreign land ownership question and the status of the government when it pumps new money into land owned by failing farmers.” he ANC still will continue to try and shift 82million hectares of ‘formerly white-owned land’ to blacks by 2014 although he believed it was an ‘unrealistic target’. They would now be focusing, he said, “on reviving the development of a ‘sustainable emerging black farming’ community.”
