Stop development-aid to chaotic SA: EU-commission

Two Dutch Euro-parliamentarians Barry Medlener and Lucas Hartong to European Commission: “Stop 980-million Euro development-aid funds to South Africa 

“ There is no sign of social stability in South Africa – the EU taxpayers are wasting their money…”

The European parliament’s press officer Laurens VanDelft  issued the following on behalf of the Party for Freedom faction –  in response to the violent pro-Malema rioting in Johannesburg on August 30 and the growing social unrest in that country:

 Aug 31,2011 BRUSSELS – Euro-MPs  Barry Madlener and Lucas Hartong want that the European Commission to immediately stop giving its development-aid programme in which millions of Euros are sent too South Africa purportedly to ‘advance social stability’ in that country. The EU budgeted an amount of 980-million for this purpose from 2007 to 2013 – . Madlener and Hartong point out that ‘there is no sign of social stability in South Africa and that the EU is wasting the taxpayers’ money on this useless project.

US embassy: ‘ Increasing violence towards whites, and attacks against white journalists, indicates a rapidly-deteriorating political climate in South Africa…

The two MPs point out that  the US embassy yesterday warned its citizens in South Africa to have themselves registered – and to also inform the embassy of the actual threats of violence in that country. The US embassy said in its statement that due to – amongst others –  the public violence surrounding the public hearing against ANC youth leader Malema, there has been a ‘rapidly-deteriorating political climate in South Africa especially towards whites’; and that ‘specifically white journalists are seriously hampered in carrying out their funcitons as representatives of the free press.”

Comments Madlener: “Everybody can observe that there is no indication of any increasing social stability in South Africa. The EU is spending its money on projects like these at the costs of the taxpayers, to make themselves look good in South Africa. This is another useless project which once again shows the need that the EU must stop giving money to development-aid.’

He is raising the following questions with the European Commission:

1.   Does the Commission, as does the PVV, agree that the current set-up of the ANC-ruled South African government does not exactly indicate that they are creating social stability and social cohesion?

2.   Can de Commission indicate why – despite the strongly-increasing level of social- and political unrest in South Africa — so much money is still being donated from the EU-budget to this country?

3.   Does the Commission, as does the PVV, also admit that all the financial help which has thus far gone to South Africa from the EU, with the specific intention to ‘increase social stability’,  has clearly proven to be totally useless and insufficient?

4.   Does the Commission intend to now stop this ‘development-aid’ to South Africa due to the growing socio-political unrest?  And if not, why not?

Cape families lose Tafelsig shacks

Cape Town wins battle against 16-family land invaders at Tafelsig
Journalist Catherine Rice writes that 17 families who took over two council-owned fields in Cape Town earlier this year have been ordered to leave by 26 September.  Final arguments were heard in the Western Cape High Court on Tuesday in the City of Cape Town’s case against the 16 families who moved onto land in Tafelsig.

Judge Nathan Erasmus granted the city a final eviction order. The families have refused to budge despite their structures constantly being taken down by the city’s land invasion unit.  Acting for the city, Advocate Anton Katz said the land simply is not fit for human habitation. He said the conditions are inhumane with some families living in holes in the ground and that the city could relocate them to Blikkiesdorp.  However, resident Faeza Meyer said she would never accept that offer. “For me, I might be fighting a losing battle for myself, but I will fight until the end for my children so they don’t have to go through what we have to go through,” she said. The respondents’ lawyer argued that a move to Blikkiesdorp would prejudice the children, who have already been traumatised. Judge Erasmus said this was a case of poor and vulnerable people being abused by third parties. He called for the police to investigate. There were murmurs of agreement from the packed public gallery. He said the land invaders were misled by the Backyarders Association into believing they were legally occupying the two fields.

Police sprayed water and teargas at Malema supporters. They were running amok, throwing bottles at police and trying to break through the barriers.  In May 2010, Malema was made to apologise publicly following a controversial trip to Zimbabwe where he declared the ANC’s support for President Robert Mugabe at a time when Mr Zuma was mediating between the country’s coalition members. He was also chastised by the ANC central executive for throwing out a BBC journalist from a press conference and for defying party orders not to sing a racially divisive apartheid-era song, “Shoot the Boer [white farmer]”.  clips on

AFRIKAANS JOURNALIST MANHANDLED BY ANC PRIVATE GUARDS Heavy police contingent since previous day: blocking off all access to Luthuli House – Afrikaans journalist manhandled Aug 29:

 From yesterday, a heavy police contingent already started cordoninbg off the former Shell company headquarters building where the youth league leader and others faced charges of ‘bringing the ruling party into disrepute.’ Malema’s public behaviour – especially his open criticism of SA president Jacob Zuma – has split the ruling party right down to its usually so well-hidden tribal divisions. Malema is a Pongo from North-Limpopo; Zuma and his supporters are Nguni-tribal members from the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal. Many Malema supporters were reportedly being bused in from North-Limpopo. Tweets from the scene said violent clashes erupted between ANCYL supporters, police and the news media:  TV crews and photo-journalists had to run for their lives, with bricks, stones and bottles lobbed at them by screaming Malema-supporters. By 10am many hundreds of people had gathered and busloads more were being driven into the CBD, expected to add to the melee.

Mrs Naomi Harmse cursed as ‘white bitch’, beaten with fist by black Vanderbijlpark cop
2011-08-25 – A black police officer at Vanderbijlpark who attempted to take a cellphone from Mrs Naomi Harmse, cursed her for a ‘white bitch,’ assaulted her in the charge office, sat on top of her and pummeled her in the face with a fist.  Beeld journalist Riata Nel interviewed and photographed the terrified woman after her ordeal.

Harmse Naomi Vanderbijlpark cop beat her in the face with his fist Aug 25 2011

Mrs Naomi Harmse (28) was driving on Faraday Street in Vanderbijlpark on Friday-night with a male friend at 23:15 enroute home when rubbish on the road when she was forced off the road by a car – and this caused a burst tyre. Just as they were being forced off the road a car stopped behind them. “I thought it was the car which had forced us off the road and asked the male person why he had done this.’  Then a number of other unknown black men exited the car behind them – and descended on the white couple’s car. They plucked her friend from her car and started dragging him away while she tried to stop them from attacking him. But the local police then showed up  and arrested the Afrikaans couple. At the charge office she was forbidden to make any calls, even though she was being arrested allegedly for assault – and had the legal right to call her lawyer to arrange for bail.  “I had hidden my cellphone so that I could call for help to get me out, but it rang and the cop at the charge office demanded that I give him my cellphone. I refused,’ she said.  “The next moment he was on top of me, threw me from the chair to the ground, sat on me, beat me with a fist in my face, called me a white bitch,’ she said.  Her friend dragged the black policeman off her. The couple remained in custody all weekend, and appeared in court on Monday on ‘assault charges’ and released on their own cognisance. She has lodged a formal charge against the police officer, confirmed warrant/officer Kinnie Steyn, who also confirmed the couple’s arrest. It’s not known if a court-date was set for the ‘assault charge’.


Nelspruit cops ignored assault on elderly white widow by striking mob Aug232011 White River widow Irene McCarthy was struck, cursed with hatespeech, her car rocked by large mob of aggressive black strikers – “I pay taxes for these roads: my Irish blood boiled and indignation welled up…’ she said:

23 August 2011 — White River. An elderly widow was abused and assaulted as she tangled with a rioting mob in the latest wave of strike protests. Nelspruit journalist Peter Doble writes that elderly White River widow Irene McCarthy was verbally abused and assaulted as she tangled with a rioting mob of large black males in the latest wave of strike protests. She was blocked from travelling through White River on Friday morning as a group of about 50 municipal workers moved from junction to junction stopping all traffic, emptying and dispersing litter and setting fire to it. Cars, taxis and trucks were forced to run the gauntlet of burning debris and broken glass as they jumped red lights  to avoid the mob. The traumatised Mrs McCarthy was hit in the face while the mob of strikers surrounded her car, kicking it, rocking it, throwing it with stones and beating it with sticks.
“I was not going to allow them to stop me from going where I wanted,” she said, still visibly distressed and nursing her injured cheek.
“I pay taxes to use these roads and they have no right to prevent me from doing so. As they surrounded the car, my Irish blood boiled and indignation welled up. They started to push my car backwards and then rock it. As I drove forward they became more abusive. I told them that I was not scared of them.” As the mob started to disperse, the whole group pressed intimidatingly against McCarthy’s car, and at that point someone hit her in the face with an object causing her to black out and sending her glasses flying. McCarthy staggered out and, although shaking with fear and anger, she was determined to go to the police station and lay a charge. 
Police from nearby cop-shop were conspicuous by their absence until afterwards…
Bystanders were threatened and aggressively ordered not to take photographs. It was not a peaceful march or protest but  an organised act of deliberate violent public disorder. Despite White River SAPS  located close by, there was no visible policing. The rioting group was watched while causing mayhem, starting fires and abusing motorists and pedestrians without any monitoring or interference. A policeman dressed in civilian clothes  arrived after the McCarthy incident but by then the protesters had moved on. The government previously pledged that riotous behaviour would not be tolerated from strikers. Nelspruit municipality has sought an emergency High Court interdict to prevent any further public nuisance from its strikers. Municipal communications manager Ms Bessie Pienaar said that photographic evidence of incidents has been requested and the appropriate legal or disciplinary action will be taken against identified individuals.

 Three black gunmen (in hijacked car from white man Boksburg) attack white bakery owner in Kempton Park
Kempton Park attackers of white bakery owner arrested by metrocops Aug252011 25 August 2011 – Three black gunmen attacked the owner of a confectionary-bakery at Croydon Kempton Park earlier today.  Supt Wilfred Kgasago, metro police spokesman, said all the white owner’s personal belongings, the money as well as two unlicensed firearms were recovered after the three very aggressive gunmen were arrested by metro-police. The armed attack against the owner of the Croydon Confectionery took place at around 11am. The owner was robbed of a substantial amount of cash, car keys as well as a Blackberry cellphone.  Kgasago said metro police officers closed in on a white Hyundai Tucson fitting the description of the vehicle circulated as involved in the robbery on Modderfontein Road near Rabie Ridge.  “All three suspects were arrested. On checking the chassis number emblazoned on the window of the suspects’ vehicle, records reflected the vehicle was hijacked in February in Boksburg,” Kgasago added. The three adult black males face charges of armed robbery, possession of unlicensed firearms and ammunition as well as possession of a suspected stolen vehicle and goods. The docket was registered at Rabie Ridge Police Station. The trio were remanded for their bail-hearing date at Tembisa Magistrate’s Court yesterday.

 ANC-regime CAN expropriate private land WITHOUT advance compensation: Constitutional Court but the State always must provide alternative accommodation before eviction…

JOHANNESBURG – In a land-mark ruling against an Asian land-owner in Durban which is expected to have an important impact on the ANC-regime’s ongoing confiscation of privately-owned landed properties countrywide, the Constitutional Court did not agree with a KwaZulu-Natal family trust that the amount and time of compensation must be settled before their land was expropriated.

The judgment was handed down in Johannesburg on Thursday. The matter related to private  properties belonging to an Asian family along the Umgeni River which flows through parts of Durban. When notice of expropriation in order to canalise the river was received in 2004, Mohammed Yusuf Haffajee and others did not formally object. They were willing to vacate the property but wanted to enter into a private treaty. The expropriation date was set by the municipality for July 31 2005 without an agreement on compensation having been reached. The  Durban municipality had tendered a compensation amount but it was rejected as too low for the actual land-value. The ANC-run city officials believed that compensation and expropriation were separate, and that a disagreement on compensation did not invalidate expropriation. However the Haffajee family insisted that expropriation could not take place until the amount of compensation had been determined. An eviction order against them was granted by the High Court in Durban and the private land owners then appealed this on the grounds that expropriation before settling the compensation issue was unconstitutional.  They believed that under the property clause in Section 25 of the Constitution, determining the amount and time of the compensation was a prerequisite.  Leave to appeal was refused in the High Court and the Supreme Court of Appeal. The Haffajee family then applied for leave to appeal at the Constitutional Court, but the court found that although there would be times where it would be unjust to evict people before determining  compensation, like cases where people could lose their livelihood or homes, there were also cases where this would not be possible. Urgent evacuation ahead of natural disasters would be an example.“An inflexible requirement for compensation before expropriation would therefore be against Section 25(3) of the Constitution that the amount and time of compensation must be a balance between the public interest and the interests of those affected by expropriation,.’ the constitutional court stated in a ruling which is expected to have a widespread effect on the ANC-regime’s current expropriation of all privately-owned properties in South Africa. The court ruled that Section 25(2) of the Constitution did not require that the amount and time of compensation and payment must always be determined before expropriation.  The court said this determination would generally be just and equitable, but where it had to be done after expropriation, it should be done as soon as was reasonably possible.

Rights to access to housing must be protected: state must provide alternative housing before eviction:

Eviction cannot be done without court supervision: The ruling also included the assessment that In disputed cases of eviction, the courts must always ensure a just and equitable outcome in line with Section 26, which protects the right of access to housing.
The court allowed the application for leave to appeal, but the appeal itself was dismissed with each party ordered to pay their own costs.

 Farm-manager Loffie van der Gryp 2008’s murderers sentenced to life: killer’s mother apologises to Afrikaner family:
Grijp vd Loffie manager Sterkfontein Dairy Farm ltr Roedolf, Loffie, Linda, Leandre, Bennett[9] 2011-08-25 Beeld journalist Jinine Botha covered the trial of some of the black murderers of dairy farm-foreman Loffie van der Gryp at Sterkfontein on Oct 28 2009.

She writes that the Van der Gryp family cannot forgive the killers. Original police-statements noted that  the farm was attacked by twelve gunmen. Only three were convicted yesterday and one man acquitted. It’s not known what happened to the other  attackers. Yesterday, convicted murderer Dumisane Ncebesha’s Mozambican mother burst into tears in court when she heard the life-long prison sentence pronounced. Mrs Anna-Marie Strydom, sister of the murdered farmer, said in reaction that while ‘the killers deserved what they got,’ she obviously would never blame the mother for the grief she now has to go through.

Mother of killer apolologises to family:

Sentenced to life-long sentences were Dumisane Ncebesha, 23, (of Mozambique); South Africans Joe Joseph Mashala (22) and George Thulani Mahlalela (28). Ncebesha’s mother feared to be identified because she might lose her work, she told Beeld journalist. However – the weeping mother approached the widow of the murdered Afrikaner farmer after the ruling, gave her a hug and apologised for what her son had done to her.”My heart is very sore for my child but also for the Van der Gryp family,’ the mother said.

Family friend Frida Coetzee commented that’the mother can still go and see her son in prison. We will never see Loffie again.’ Besides the murder of Van der Gryp, the murderers also were sentenced for attempted murder of neighbour , dominee Marthinus Jacobus “Boer” Booysen and  robbery with extinuating circumstances.for this crime they were sentenced to 30 years – but that’s meaningless because in South Africa all the sentences are served together. A fourth accused Karlito Macamo (29), was acquited of the charges.

The entire Van der Gryp family was attacked on 28 October 2008, the children were tied up and held at gunpoint —  and forced to listen to their father shot dead execution style – while he was tied up and had been hit by a stone.”The murdered farmer had posed no danger to the gunmen, who even kicked him after he was shot dead,’ said judge Philip Hattingh. Other factors taken into consideration, he said, were tthat none of the murderers had ever shown any remorse; and the fact that the dairy farm deteriorated after Van der Gryp’s murder. 

Farm worker Phillemon Mokasi testified against the killers:

He quoted the testimony by farm-worker Phillemon Mokasi, 49: “Before his murder the farm produced 10,000 liters of milk a day, now it produces 1,500 liters. I am an old man, where can I still get work? Young people should know if you walk the road of these men, you will end up behind bars.” the judge said that the dairy-farm had to let go half of its workers after the murder and more workers are expected to lose their jobs this month.”The Sterkfontein Dairy was managed by Mr van der Gryp: he did not own it.

This dairy supplied the entire region with milk products from its own Fresian herd – and it was located in a commercially very advantagenous position:  right next to the Greensleeves restaurant along the R563-route to Hekpoort and Meropeng.

Although the murderous attack was persistently described as an ‘armed robbery’, there is no evidence that anything was actually robbed from the dairy farm nor from the Van der Gryp family: the only items were looted from neighbour, pastor ‘Boer”  Booysen after he was disabled in the gun-fight which erupted before Van der Gryp was executed.The gang had first bashed Van der Gryp over the head, leaving him dazed and bleeding on the ground. They had tied him up. The gang was split into several groups: some attacking the family, tying them up at gunpoint: Linda, 46, Bennett, 23, Roelof, 21, and daughter LeandrÉ (17). Booysen, the pastor of the Van der Gryp family’s Afrikaans Evangelical Church nearby, and whose house they were renting, had gone out to investigate and the pastor then was injured in a fierce gun-battle with the gang. They shot Booysen in a leg; and then executed Van der Gryp.,,3-975_2446910,00.html

According to the news at the time, nothing of value was robbed. However it now emerged that one of her murderers admitted killing her and then selling her cellphone. Her shoes were found in his house. Her naked body was discovered by two Afrikaans pupils from Dr Böhmer school nearby, Dwane Tebrugge, 17 and Alex Smith, 14. The two youths had been walking in Pasteur Drive at around 7.30am when they made the terrifying discovery. Mrs Henning was last seen at 19:30 on Nov 22 2010 when she left her home on foot in Fowler Street, Hospitaal Park, said apartment-building owner’s son Coenie Beukes. “She had fetched meat from our freezer to have a braai somewhere,’ he said. She didn’t have a car. Her ex-husband Frans’ second wife Marisa said it was the most difficult day of her life: she had to inform Amelia’s daughters Megan-Lee, 17, and Franschesc, 10, of their mother’s death. Frans was out of town at the time. I had to tell them their mommy was dead, she wept. “I am sure she didn’t go without a fight. She must have fought like a lion.’ Col. Mrs Thandiwe Qhobosheane said she ‘could not describe in words what she felt about Mrs Henning’s murder. “She was one of a kind and her death is a massive loss for the SAPS,’ she said at the time –   

Afrikaners besieged, mutilated, tortured    Man arrested for police-woman’s murder-rape

Why did they gouge out her eyes?  Her murderers didn’t explain… but one suspect was declared insane and incarcerated in a mental hospital…

On Tuesday August 23 2011, the court heard all the gruesome details of the terrifying way in which the Afrikaans mother of two children was murdered.  Initially accused of her murder/rape were Seanette Mashinini, 23; Lucky Nhgwedi, 19;  and Thabo Mokoena, 18. Mashinini admitted to acting judge E.M. Kubushi that he had robbed and murdered Mrs Henning, but denied raping her – even though he admitted this earlier to the investigating officer. Nhgwedi, 19, has denied all guilt, while the co-accused Mokoena was declared insane and admitted as a patient of the State President to a mental hospital.

Mashinini said in his plea-explanation that he and ‘Thabo’ walked at the railway tracks near the Pasteur hospital when they saw the policewoman walk on the opposite side of the road. She was alone. They ran across the road, grabbed the white woman and dragged her into the veldt. Mashinini pulled down her pants and strangled her while Thabo raped her. She fought and kicked fiercely so Thabo then took out a knife and repeatedly stabbed her. Mashinini then grabbed the knife and also stabbed her. The police-forensic examination revealed that she was stabbed 30 times. Mashinini said it ‘was dark and he could not know exactly where he had stabbed her’.  Henning then ‘lay still’. At that point, the two black men decided to gouge out her eyes. Mashinini then took her shoes and cellphone and sold the latter. The shoes were found in his house when he was arrested.

State advocate Silas Chalale refused to accept Mashini’s plea-explanation because he had not explained Nhgwedi’s role in Mrs Henning’s murder. 

SAPS captain Francois Laux testified earlier during a trial-within-a-trial that Mashinini had pointed out specific accurate details of the murder-scene to him on 14 December 2010. During that examination of the crime-scene, Mashinini also admitted to Laux that he had also raped Mrs Henning after his comrade had done so, and that she was at that point still alive and kicking towards her assailants; and that they then had both stabbed her with the knife. They then made the joint decision to gouge out her eyes but his comrade did the gouging, Mashinini told Laux at the crime scene. Mashinini claimed yesterday that he had ‘testified yesterday because he was assaulted by police officers, and that he also told Laux for that reason that he had raped her. He was allegedly frightened that he would be assaulted again.’

Afrikaans journos battered

Nieuwenhuizen Craig Beeld Afrikaans photographer Unisa guards battered him Aug232011Afrikaans journo Yolanda Barnard of Sondag: ‘The four cops told me they pulled me over because I was white,’ she said.  After she was punched in the face by a policewoman, the woman and a male cop carried her by her arms and legs to their minivan while the other two laughed at her humiliation… And Afrikaans news-photographer Craig Nieuwenhuizen, left, was bashed, kicked and beaten by security guards at the Unisa campus while investigating a story on Tuesday.

Jacques Steenkamp of Beeld newspaper writes that Afrikaans journalist Yolanda Barnard, 32, entertainment-reporter for Sondag tabloid, suffered a cracked nose-bone when she was battered in the face by a black policewoman on Sunday-afternoon Aug 22 2011. She has lodged charges at Midrand police station. Miss Barnard had jBARNARD YOLANDA 32 Sondag journalist beaten by police woman Midrand Aug22 2011ust left the ‘Liedjieboer-Kroeg’, an Afrikaans entertainment venue at Olifantsfontein Road in Midrand, on Sunday at 4:15pm. She had spent the afternoon with entertainers Kurt Darren, DJ Ossewa and others to celebrate singer Pieter Smith’s birthday. “I had a few drinks but also had a lot to eat,’ she said. “I drove myself because I was not drunk. About a block away from the venue I was pulled over by four black police members. I asked them why they pulled me over specifically, and they said ‘because you are white,’ she said.

The four cops, three men and a woman, ordered her to follow them and the four cops climbed back into their minibus. She followed them in her car because she believed they would just go to the nearest police station. However instead they stopped in a quiet dead-end street, demanded her driver’s license and her keys.

“I wanted to know again why they pulled me over and the woman said ‘because you are drunk.’ I asked them to do a breathaliser test right there and then — because I know I was not drunk. The black female cop then battered me in the face. ‘

Ms Barnard was then grabbed by her arms and legs by the police woman and a male cop, and they carried her to the minibus. The other two black male cops stood there and laughed at her humiliation.

“I then told them that I was a journalist, and they suddenly dropped me right there on the tarmac. I jumped up and locked myself into my car.” An hour later, after posting at her car all that time, the four cops apparently decided they’d had enough and they all got back into the minivan. Ms Barnard then climbed out and pleaded with them to give her back her driver’s license and keys. They threw her belongings on the ground from the bus.

She never was charged with anything. “I am now terrified of the police. How can anyone trust them after such an incident?” she said. She was examined by a doctor who confirmed her suspicion that a bone may have been cracked in her nose. Editor of Sondag newspaper Peet Bothma said the newspaper takes a very strong stand against police cruelty and assaults, just as any other newspaper should also do.

“We support Yolanda completely in lodging her criminal charges, as well as the civil claim she will be lodging,’ he said. SAPS captain Agnes Huma confirmed that the journalist lodged formal charges of assault and intimidation against the specific police members involved.

When the guard walked to the main entrance of the building, Nieuwenhuizen and Rademeyer followed him. According to Rademeyer a second guard approached them, shouting that they should return to the gate. He shoved Nieuwenhuizen. An argument ensued, after which Nieuwenhuizen and Rademeyer walked to the gate. At the gate the guard grabbed Nieuwenhuizen by the throat. Two or three more guards started to hit the photographer. Nieuwenhuizen took pepper spray from his pocket to ward of the attackers. According to Rademeyer he fell to the ground while the guards continued kicking him and ignoring her pleas for them to stop.

Nieuwenhuizen took pepper spray from his pocket to ward of the attackers. According to Rademeyer he fell to the ground while the guards continued kicking him and ignoring her pleas for them to stop. Peet Kruger, editor of Beeld, said in response to the assault that “thuggery of this sort is unacceptable and flies in the face of democracy”. “The journalists were at a building which is a public institution.

“The role of journalists is to tell the story of all South Africans so that ordinary people can be heard and problems can be highlighted in the hope that people with the proper authority can fix them. “In this case the story was about the unpleasant working conditions of Unisa staff after the department of labour had ordered the air conditioning to be shut off. “Assault and violence is not the way to handle investigations and debate.”

Unisa spokesperson Doreen Gough said they deeply regret the incident. “We’ve always had a good relationship with Beeld and the other photographers. We are investigating the incident,” she said.
