ANC hides its Boer genocide in fake stats

Three killers of Afrikaner farmer Gerhardt Rabe get their sentence reduced by ill-informed judge

PRETORIA HIGH COURT judge Neil Tuchten on August 27 2012 reduced the sentence of the three black-male murderers of the young Afrikaner farmer Gerhardt Rabe, 28, who had been kidnapped from his farm Wydgelegen in Wakkerstroom Mpumalanga on 16 June 2000 and was found  dead  several days later.

Three men who had started working for Mr Rabe just weeks before the murder — Dumisani Samuel Zwane, Skhumbuza Richard Ndaba and Mbongeni Isaac Ndaba —  were found guilty of murdering Mr Rabe. However, judge Tuchten this week reduced their sentences by one-third because “this had not been a real farm murder:” The judge implied in his summary – according to the South African Press Assocation —  that the farmer had provoked his workers into killing him.  (below) Tuchten reduced Zwane’s sentence from 20 years to 12 years, and the two Ndaba brothers’ sentence from 25 years to 15 years.

There is no police-category for Farm Murders:

The judge however is in error: there is no police-category for ‘farm-murders’, and there is no definition of ‘farm-murders’ in the SA policing system. A murder is a murder. 

 

RABE Gerhard 28 murdered farm Wakkerstroom 18 June 2000 3 KILLERS HAD SENTENCES REDUCED THERE IS NO FARM MURDER CATEGORY Wakkerstroom region roiled by violent, ferocious hatecrimes against Afrikaners

In fact, the Wakkerstroom region where Mr Rabe had been kidnapped and murdered by his own workers has a history of extremely violent and fericious hatecrimes against Afrikaners. There is a long list, however the most recent incidents illustrate the nature of these crimes which are all recorded by the ANC-regime as ‘ordinary robberies/murders’ instead of hatecrimes:

And on 9 February 2012 Mrs Ingrid Anna Niebuhr, 71, a German-Afrikaner farm guest-house owner and long-time charity volunteer in the black community, had her throat cut in a fierce attack – as evidenced from the large number of stab wounds across her entire body. Also, nothing was robbed, another indication that this had been a hate-crime carried out by more than one person.

SAPS has no ‘farm murder category’ : they hide such hate-crimes inside ‘ordinary murder and robbery’ stats

The SAPS however have no category for ‘farm-murders’, and the judge’s ruling therefore is very arbitrary, based in inaccurate information about the way in which SA crime statistics are being maintained. His lowering the punishment for criminal murderers also sends entirely the wrong message to the farming community: already roiling in a wave of ANC-caused terrorism targetting their families – and which has even drawn fire from the international Genocide Watch organisation: which placed Afrikaner farmers in Category Six out of Eight At Risk of Genocide groups.

Genocide Watch blames ANC-regime for mounting genocide campaign against Afrikaner farmers:

Its chairman Prof Gregory Stanton examined many documents and personal statements placed before him over the past eight years – and also interviewed many well-informed people during his latest, recent visit to South Africa before he reached this conclusion: http://www.genocidewatch.org/SouthAfrica.html  Stanton also warned that the SA government, ‘as a signatory to the Rome Statute’, can be prosecuted for crimes against humanity and hatecrimes against Afrikaners (‘white Boer farmers’ ) at the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

ANC documents dehumanise Afrikaners by referring to them as settlers – Stanton:

Afriforum launches massive civil-rights campaign against farm murders:

Meanwhile also this week, the civil-rights movement AfriForum has launched a huge campaign against farm murders together with celebrities such as Afrikaans singer/human rights campaigners Steve Hofmeyr, Chris Chameleon, Bobby van Jaarsveld, Karlien van Jaarsveld, Pieter Koen and Gerrie Pretorius. They all attended the launch and announced their support for the campaign.

HOFMEYR STEVE STOP FARM MURDERS CAMPAIGN WITH AFRIFORUM AUG 29 2012

At the occasion a dozen projects as well as the website, http://www.stopthemurders.co.za, were announced. Ernst Roets, Deputy CEO of AfriForum, explained that the campaign loosely stands on two legs.

‘On the one side we demand action by the government. We will continue with our campaign until farm murders are prioritised and specialist units for rural safety are established. On the other side we say that we will not wait until government acts, but that we will constructively look after our safety by joining community safety networks. “

Afrikaner farmers believe the ANC-regime sees them as second-class citizens who do not warrant protection:

Roets said at the occasion that the government’s silence about farm murders makes the public suspicious. ‘Some people believe that farm murders are planned centrally. Others believe that the government sees them as second-class citizens and that their safety is not a priority to government. They see the government’s silence as confirmation.’

Roets added that this campaign would only succeed if many members of the public join by visiting http://www.stopthemurders.co.za and declaring their involvement. The complete campaign plan, with details about the 12 projects that AfriForum will run, follows below.

One Dozen Projects against Farm Attacks
1. Creating Awareness
The public must be informed about the reality; not just about the fact that farm attacks are a reality, but also about what they can do to pressurise government to classify farm attacks as a priority crime, and about what they should do to improve their own safety
themselves.

The recent attack on the American farmer Allen Rodgers (61), heightened  international prominence of SA farm attack, said Roets. “The international community has to be informed so that they too, in the interests of their citizens, can pressurise the South African government to be serious in addressing farm murders and attacks.”

“No shock tactics but reliable information and tested research”

AfriForum wants to distinguish itself from those organisations that are trying to promote awareness about farm murders through graphic “shock tactics”, by rather using reliable information and tested research.

AfriForum plans the following:
    A countrywide awareness campaign in which the reality of farm attacks will be conveyed to students in particular. AfriForum will become involved in the distribution of the documentary, War of the Flea. This documentary will be shown at campuses countrywide.

Afriforum also plans to strengthen already existing Community Safety Networks

“While the campaign will in the main focus on getting government to declare farm murders as a priority crime, it is just as important to get farming communities to take the responsibility to properly ensure their own safety. AfriForum’s research indicates that the best way to reduce crime in communities, is by mobilising the public into community safety networks. “

AfriForum plans the following:

    A report on community safety, drafted by AfriForum’s investigative unit, in collaboration with Prof Rudolph Zinn, will be abridged. This summary will be distributed among those members of the public who have indicated their willingness to become involved with the “Stop the Murders” campaign.    AfriForum will encourage its members to join community safety networks, or to establish such where they do not yet exist.  Local communities, wishing to establish community safety networks, will be given advice. Although AfriForum will do the initial groundwork and will offer the necessary advice, it is important for the sake of sustainability that such initiative comes from the communities themselves.

AfriForum will also host a national summit on rural safety. Community safety networks will be invited to the summit and proven strategies to deal with crime at a local level will be exchanged.

ANC regime refuses to publish statistics on farm-murders: Afriforum ‘forced to do its own research”

The fact that government refuses to publish statistics on farm murders, forces AfriForum to do its own research in this regard and to release such. AfriForum will research this topic on an ongoing basis.

AfriForum plans the following:

    As part of the Solidarity Movement, AfriForum will remain involved in the Transvaal Agricultural Union of South Africa’s initiative to keep statistics on farm murders.     A comprehensive report on farm murders will be released. This report will elaborate on the nature and extent of farm murders, the impact it has on families and communities, and the economic implications of farm murders. The report will also include practical steps government and communities can take to address the issue. Many experts will be involved in this undertaking.    This report will be included in the second edition of the book, Land of Sorrow, (Kraal Publishers).    The report’s findings will be released at a conference. It will also be used to gain support for the campaign.

AfriForum also plans top liaison with: 

* the South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC);

* the Commission for the Promotion and Protection of the Rights of Cultural, Religious and Linguistic Communities (CRL);

* the Institute for Security Studies (ISS);

* the South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR);

* and with political parties, including the ruling party.

Legal Strategy: forcing government with a court order to create specialist units for rural safety

In 2003, the government of former State President Thabo Mbeki abolished local commandos. When it was announced that commandos would be abolished, a promise was made that alternative structures would be created for rural safety. However, this promise has never been fulfilled. AfriForum will investigate the possibility of forcing government by means of a court order to create specialist units for rural safety. More information will be made available in due course.

The Battle against anti-Afrikaner Hate Speech

With their hate speech, the ruling party, and in particular its youth league, are creating a climate in which violence against farmers is being romanticised. AfriForum is gravely concerned about the ANC’s official stance that songs like “Skiet die Boer”/ “Kill the Boer

(Farmer)” may be chanted at political gatherings, especially when it is accompanied by radical statements about land reform. AfriForum’s campaign to end hate speech will go ahead full steam.

AfriForum plans the following:

* The ANC’s appeal against the “Kill the Boer” verdict will be opposed in the Supreme Court of Appeal. AfriForum will take this matter to the Constitutional Court, and if need be, to the Boardrooms of the UN.

* AfriForum will pursue legal action against deputy-ANC-leader Ronald Lamola for his statement that the safety of “the Van Tonders and Van der Merwes” cannot be guaranteed as long as they are not prepared to relinquish their land without compensation. At the moment, AfriForum represents more than a thousand South Africans with the surnames Van Tonder or Van der Merwe.

ANC HATESPEECH RONALD LAMOLA GIVE ALL WHITE PROPERTY OR WE WILL TAKE IT BY FORCE MAY 3 2012 UWC MIKE SMITH * Similar steps will be taken against any influential person who incites racial hatred among his/her supporters.

International Campaign

While many steps can still be taken at a local level, AfriForum is currently in a preparation phase to also wage this campaign at international level. In AfriForum’s experience, the hasty and somewhat ill-considered actions of local anti-farm murder organisations, have contributed to the existence of certain false perceptions about the matter abroad, and particularly at the UN. AfriForum aims to correct these perceptions through reliable information and credible conduct.

AfriForum plans the following:

* Registration as a nongovernmental organisation with the UN’s Social and Economic Council (ECOSOC). This will offer AfriForum a platform to address numerous international gatherings.

* AfriForum’s research team will investigate possible liaison with various UN affiliated institutions.

* Liaison with other organisations which are not necessarily UN accredited will also be undertaken.

* AfriForum is currently in a preparation phase to establish a dedicated unit for international liaison.

National Day of Protest
It is of critical importance that this campaign is not only waged at a national and international level, but that it is also undertaken at a local community level. For this reason, AfriForum plans to organise a national day of protest, which would create an opportunity for local
communities to become involved in the campaign.

AfriForum plans the following:
* A memorandum, demanding that farm murders be declared a priority crime, will be handed to at least 100 police stations countrywide on one single day. Local communities are to present the memorandum to their police station. This initiative can only be successful if
the public joins this campaign in large numbers.

Liaison with the SAPS
AfriForum will remain in discussion with the South African Police Service and will furnish them with information on why and how farm murders have to be dealt with as a priority crime. Liaison will focus specifically on the Minister of Police and the National Police
Commissioner.

AfriForum plans the following:
* An appointment with the Minister of Police, Nathi Mthethwa
* An appointment with National Police Commissioner, Riah Phiyega
* AfriForum’s structures will be encouraged to establish links with their local police stations.

Local Protests
Protests will play an important role in AfriForum’s campaign. In AfriForum’s experience there is huge frustration in rural areas with government’s lack of action, and it is important to provide an outlet for this frustration. Apart from offering an outlet, protest action is also
an important way of demonstrating at local, national and international level South Africans’ discontent with government’s silence on farm murders. AfriForum regularly receives requests from rural areas to organise protests. It is AfriForum’s view that local communities should take the initiative for such action themselves. In future, AfriForum will, however, fulfil a more supportive role in this regard.

AfriForum plans the following:
* A manual will be drafted with guideline to organise protests in local communities.
* This manual will be distributed to AfriForum’s structures, and will also be made available to members of the public interested in organising such action.
* Although AfriForum will continue to encourage communities wishing to organise protests, to do so by themselves, AfriForum will lend more support to such actions, especially by offering advice on tried and tested practices for organising local protests.

Support to Victims
AfriForum and AfriForum Youth have already done a great deal to support victims of farm attacks, especially in those instances where the police’s reaction to a farm attack is less than satisfactory. Although AfriForum has no intention whatsoever of assuming the police’s

role in this regard, AfriForum’s investigative unit will continue to support the victims of farm attacks in certain circumstances.

AfriForum plans the following:
* AfriForum’s investigative unit will, where necessary, support the victims of farm attacks by assisting them with advice.
* AfriForum Youth will continue with its initiative to pay hospital visits in certain instances to the victims of farm attacks.
* Those opinion shapers who have pledged their support to the campaign, will be encouraged to join AfriForum when the victims of farm attacks are visited.Issued by AfriForum, August 29 2012
