Allen Hepburn (42) frantically stabbed to death, 5 Feb 2012 nothing stolen, Klipeiland smallholdings Bronkhorstspruit
5 Feb 2012 Allen Hepburn, born 24 May 1960, stabbed to death 5 Feb 2012, nothing stolen – Klipeiland smallholdings, Bronkhorstspruit. Mr Allen Hepburn, a resident of the Klipeiland Agricultural Holdings near Bronkhorstpruit, was brutally murdered at his house on Sunday morning while changig a flat tyre on his vehicle in front of his house.
Mr Hepburn (born 24 May 1960), was stabbed 7 times and was found by his wife Marietjie, upon her return. Nothing seems to have been stolen. The extremely high level of violence used against Mr Hepburn indicates that this was no ‘ botched vehicle theft attempt.’ Another attack which will not feature on the Police’s farm attack statistics, since they do not recognise smallholdings as being part of the farming community. More information to follow as we receive it. Marius Avenant
Zuma slammed for Unconstitutional use of SA soldiers to police civilians in SA streets
5 Feb 2012 ‘There was no state of emergency announced by the SA president to use the SANDF – which is a Constitutional requirement before soldiers can start patrolling civilian areas. Two video clips show the brutality with which these xenophobic soldiers and police-officers attacked the shops of unarmed foreign traders, fired tear-gas and stun-grenades. And Johannesburg journalist Yusuf Omar reported that a human rights worker was arrested for photographing a South African soldier beating up a foreign shopkeeper with the butt of his R4 rifle. Video one by Adrian de Kock: Jan 12 2012 – The crowds in downtown Johannesburg’s Jeppe Street scatter after police threw a stun grenade into the unarmed group of people. The SA Police Service and the SA National Defence Force were ‘raiding’ the shops of unarmed foreign traders in the area, for reasons unknown: accompanied by the military, the local metro-cops and the fire brigade.
This mob of uniformed defence force and police-officers broke open the shops, using axle grinders and crow bars. without search warrants: Video. Adrian de Kock http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcnwYfU5f-g

Military forces deployed in civilian areas are Constutitional violations: also in 2011:
January 24 2012 SA Pres Jacob Zuma has come under fire for flouting constitutional requirements over the deployment of the military in civilian areas.Letters sent by the Presidency to Speaker Max Sisulu informing Parliament about three major deployments last year authorised by Zuma showed that they were sent between three and six weeks after their respective deployments had commenced.
The constitution requires that only the president can authorise the deployment of the military, and also that Parliament must be informed “promptly and in appropriate detail” by the president about the deployment. Opposition Party Democratic Alliance wrote to Sisulu requesting him to act against Zuma for “repeated failure to respect Parliament’s standing in relation to defence force deployments”. DA MP David Maynier said letters from Zuma tabled in Parliament yesterday showed how constitutional provisions were violated during the deployments as Zuma “failed to inform Parliament about the details of deployments”.
The three deployments of the SA National Defence Force occurred in 2011: Over the festive season, in co-operation with the SAPS between November 1, 2011 until January 1, 2012; During COP17, with the SAPS, from November 21 to December 11 last year. In the Democratic Republic of Congo from November 23 to December 7, 2011.
Foreign trader, dragged through a puddle of water by a SA defence force soldier, is then ordered to swim through it in this gross abuse of power by heavily-armed SA military officers who patrolled the streets of Johannesburg, January 12 2012 alongside the SAPS (from video)
“The SA president also failed to comply with the Defence Act of 2002 in that he did not, as prescribed in section 18(4) of that act, provide any information as to expenditure incurred or expected to be incurred by the employment of the SANDF,” Maynier said. He added that Zuma’s letters showed that Ndivhuwo Mabaya, the latest spokesman for the defence ministry, “had no idea what he was talking about when he reportedly claimed last week that the festive season deployment of the defence force was authorised by a presidential proclamation made in 2001 or 2002”. Maynier was referring to a Cape Times article in which legal experts slammed recent deployments of the military in civilian areas as “unconstitutional” and “intimidatory”.The article referred to the following incidents of military deployment in Cape Town and Johannesburg: In Lavender Hill in November, to quell a flare-up of gang violence. l In Claremont, as part of a crime-prevention operation last month. l At Khayelitsha District Hospital this month, when two armoured vehicles and a number of armed soldiers monitored a protest; l In Johannesburg, a human rights worker had his phone confiscated and was arrested for taking photographs of a soldier beating a shopkeeper with a rifle. “ Imagine every time the SAPS want to call on soldiers, they must call on the president…’ Defending these deployments, Mabaya was quoted as saying that a proclamation from “2001 or 2002” enabled “soldiers to do anything, as long as they are asked by police”. “Imagine if every time the police want to to call on soldiers, they must call on the president,” he said. However, it is clear from Zuma’s letters that a specific authorisation is, in fact, required. Constitutional law expert Professor Pierre de Vos pointed out that the notion of a blanket authorisation of employment of the defence force “subverted the meaning of the constitution or law”.De Vos said the section of the constitution was “to prevent the situation (which) occurred in apartheid, when the military was used against civilians”.The SA National Defence Force Union has also weighed in on the controversy, issuing a statement saying the deployment of soldiers into civilian areas was unlawful and unconstitutional. Bongani Majola, a spokesman in the Presidency, referred queries to the Department of defence. journalist email: firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.iol.co.za/capetimes/zuma-slammed-for-illegal-deployment-of-troops-1.1219077 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fcnwUfU5f-g&feature=related http://www.youtube.com/watch?v-fcnwYfl

Feb 5 2012 – Hannes Engelbrecht writes: BOERE KRISISAKSIE’s e-mail of this week focuses on a tremendous increase in incidents and murders aimed at Afrikaner/Boers in South Africa for the period of January 21 till February 1, 2012. It is our firm conviction that this escalation in genocide crimes against whites was brought about by the unruly ANC centenary celebrations at the start of January. This brings our total number of racist incidents against whites for January 2012 to 74 racial incidents aimed at whites,including 25 murders and 29 attempted murders/serious assaults. –

Mugabe of Zimbabwe destabilises SA with blood-diamond wealth shared out to ANC youth league
4 Feb 2012 new US chair of KIMBERLEY PROCESS says they ‘WILL NOT MONITOR ‘POLISHED’ BLOOD-DIAMOND TRADE IN ZIMBABWE…” US Ambassador Gillian A. Milovanovic, the first American to chair the Kimberley ‘Blood Diamonds Monitoring’ Process Certification Scheme, said in a press-conference on Feb 3 2012 that they only supervised the sale of rough, uncut diamonds; that the KP had ‘no control over the sale of polished diamonds’ – and that she had no plans to expand KP control by including polished diamonds. Yet Mugabe’s diamond-wealth and opaque joint-venture companies fund increasing violence throughout southern Africa – including ANCYL ‘s Julius Malema’s ongoing destabilisation of the ruling party of South Africa and his genocidal Kill the Boer campaign against the Afrikaner minority… Which is however the exact problem in Zimbabwe: with the authoritative group Global Witness recently warning that Mugabe’s ruling party ‘are capturing the country’s diamond wealth through state-sponsored violence and opaque joint-venture companies’. And well-informed sources in South Africa also believe that the increasingly violent and rebellious ANC-youth league’s ‘suspended’ leader Julius Malema has a destabilising effect on the country’s goverance: with Malema’s sources for his new-found wealth still not clear.

Destitute, homeless women gang-raped, husband brutally beaten trying to flee from Lesotho rapists with his wife, Welkom
Posted: 01 Feb 2012 destitute women gang-raped, husband brutally beaten for trying to flee with his wife – Welkom. The destitute Afrikaner mining families in the delapidated gold-mine town of Welkom are increasingly under threat from roaming gangs of Lesotho ‘gold-dust hunters’ and crime-gangs: 2012-02-03
WELKOM. Tom de Wet. A homeless, destitute couple who were sleeping inside their car near the St Helena disused mineshaft in Welkom, were brutally attacked by black males. And another young white woman also was gang-raped by sixteen black males, purportedly all from Lesotho. SAPS capt Stephen Thakeng said a 24-year-old woman was attacked and raped by 16 black males from Lesotho near the Freddies Nr 5 gold mine shaft. She was dumped in the veldt. She was able to reach the police and they arrested one of the men when she was able to identify him. The other 15 rapists are still at large. Leading the investigation is SAPS Lt Mosele Mokeyane tel 057-391-6186. Thakeng said the second attack occurred when the 27-year-old husband of a 22-year-old woman was beaten with steel pipes when he tried to flee with his wife. The couple had been homeless and had temporarily stayed with the man’s brother but were asked to leave the house: and the couple then moved into their car, parking it behind a supermarket in Sandania suburb near the old disused Pres Brand goldmine. A black man claiming he was a security official tapped on the window of their car and told them they were not allowed to be there. However before they could flee, two more black males showed up, bashing in the car-window with bricks, and beating the husband in the face while he was trying frantically to drive away. The man’s face was injured by the glass – and when the old car ‘s engine failed and he tried to push the car with his wife steering, the terrified couple were attacked. Three men raped the woman. The husband is in hospital, critically injured. Warrant Officer Moyane Monei investigates. Telephone 083-533-6375 .-
