Roestorff-Da Costa family fights off armed black men who crashed into their home: one attacker shot and injured
July 29 2013 – Richard’s Bay. Ten-member white family in Richard’s Bay attacked by two blacks who tried to hit granny over the head
Richard’s Bay granddaughter Marlese Roestorff-Da Costa bravely fought with a black man who tried to attack her elderly gran with a brick.
The old woman was hit on the arm while warding off the attack – but her granddaughter was hit over the head with a crowbar by a second attacker. She fell to the floor, bleeding profusely.
The attack occurred on Monday July 29 2013 at 8h20pm just as the ten-member family was sitting down to dinner.
Two black men stormed into the family home. The father-in-law heard the commotion and ran into the room, armed with his legally-registered pistol. He shot one of the violent attackers while the second one fled with two cellphones.
Meanwhile Marlese’s sister in law had rushed the small children aged 5, 9, 10 and 12 into a bedroom and phoned the police from there, asking for an ambulance while her mother-in-law pressed the panic button.
The SAPS arrived but could not find the second attacker. The injured attacker was taken to hospital – as was Marlese for treatment of her head injury.
Her current condition is not known.

July 30 2013 – Elderly Kuruman farmer Joop van Heerden, who was seriously injured in a torture-ordeal by four black males on 24 June 2012,  died of his traumatic injuries on Sunday morning 03h30. He was left behind for dead by his four black male attackers – who were arrested the next day while he was fighting for his life in hospital.They were tried for ‘assault and robbery’. The attackers cannot be tried for murder – because the farmer died of his injuries more than a year later. As he fought hard to recover this past year, his friends said he also attended every court appearance, and local residents reported that his ordeal continued because the accused black torturers laughed at him when he testified and whenever he sat in the courtroom. Friends write that ‘the attack caused permanent trauma in him and this was made even worse by the trial.He was forced to look his torturers in the eye in a court of law and they loudly laughed at his pain. ” He died before the torturers who have now caused his death, could even be sentenced.

Airbrushing Afrikaner martyrs from history

‘Pretoria Memorial to Our Victims of Terrorism’ miraculously survives Munitoria implosion

“The monument’s original inscription “Vengeance Is Mine: I will Repay’ (Romans 12:19) and the dedication ‘To our victims of terrorism’ were airbrushed out by the ANC’s history rewrite… The streets where it is located on the corner of Vermeulen and Van der Walt streets, have been renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets…

PretoriaMemorialToOURvictimsOfTerrorismPICTHREE original picture on http://tia-mysoa.blogspot.nl/2013/07/pretorias-monument-for-victims-of.html

July 27 2013 – The author of the blog ‘This Is South Africa, My Simple Online Abode’ — Tia MySoa –     has discovered that Pretoria’s Memorial To Our Victims of Terrorism (he photographed with great difficulty on 26 July 2013) has survived the 120,000 tons of rubble which pounded it on July 7 2013 during the implosion of the old burnt-out Munitoria building in Pretoria.

He writes: “This  noteworthy monument stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets).

It’s original purpose and inscription:

  • It  was built in 1988 – to honour the ‘‘residents of Pretoria who lost their lives as a result of acts of terrorism, or in preventing or combating terrorism,” – according to an announcement in a Council Newsletter at the time. Readers who want a general outline of what South Africa was like in the year 1988 can click   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1988_in_South_Africa  to read a month-by-month account on Wikipedia.

Also read: Nobel Peace Laureate Nelson Mandela’s bombs:

PretoriaTerrorismVictimMemorialPIC4withMUNITORIAbuildingOnFire1997 The memorial is a tall arch made of stainless steel, which ‘denotes the triumph of a people living by God’s principles’. The arch was broken at the apex as a reference to ‘the untimely death of the victims of terrorism.’ The structure was originally surrounded by a water feature symbolizing ‘calmness and reflection’ and equipped with an inscription from the Bible, “Vengeance is mine: I will repay” (Romans 12:19), as well as the dedication “To our victims of terrorism.”

Airbrushed out of South African history in September 1994:

— He writes: “It was a few months after South Africa’s democrazy elections of April 1994, sometime in September 1994, that ‘a concerned resident of Pretoria’, by the name of Mr D.J. Eksteen, decided to awake the sleeping dogs of the ANC-controlled council, by raising objection to the Biblical words of Romans 12:19 inscribed on the memorial – “Vengeance is mine: I will repay”. In his letter of complaint Eksteen also mentioned that the memorial was ‘out of touch in the times we live in and does not have the right to exist”. (Afrikaans: “is uit pas met die tyd waarin ons leef en het nie meer bestaansreg nie.”

Eventually, after a heated debate in which Conservative Party councillors voiced their strong objections, it was finally resolved to re-dedicate the memorial to ‘ALL’ instead of ‘OUR’ victims of terrorism.

  • The Biblical quote was also removed – to keep the godless masses happy. The entire re-dedication process went ahead without the council even bothering to publish their intentions in an official newsletter.
  • Mr Paul Fouché, former leader of the Conservative Party, pointed out the fact that the residents of Pretoria where never given the opportunity to voice their opinions on the matter.

The good news is that Pretoria”s Memorial to Our Victims of Terrorism survived the implosion of the Old Munitoria building this month. It still stands next to tons of rubble, on the same street corner (now renamed to Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets).

“The entire block was cordoned off with 2-metre high zinc and barbed wire, making it rather difficult to get a decent photograph of the entire edifice,” he writes. ” However, despite this barrier and other awkward obstacles such as a smoke-filled environment, the sun in the wrong place, crazy taxi drivers, rude pedestrians, and Metro cops who kept asking me for my driver’s licence and what my business was, I did manage to snap some pics, which I’ve appended to the end of this posting.”

Deaths in SAP cells 1963 to 1990; compared to 2013

Did ‘thousands of black people’ really die in police custody during apartheid? Well no… not even ‘hundreds’….

  • 73 people died in police-custody from 1963 to 1990 (a 27-year-period)  link . That’s an average of 2.7 deaths a year.
  • by 2012 under the ANC-regime, 900+ people died in police custody in just ONE YEAR… link 

The current ANC-regime and its supporters often publish propaganda-claims about ‘thousands’ of black South Africans having died in SA Police custody during apartheid – and this is now widely believed. 

However this is not backed up by the statistics from that era: from 1963 to 1990, in a 27-year-period at the height of the anti-apartheid riots, a total of 73 people were recorded as having died in SA police custody. http://www.sahistory.org.za/topic/list-deaths-detention.

  • Critics will argue that the apartheid-statistics were ‘not reliable’, however even if they were understated by 100%, the apartheid police-cell deaths still pale by comparison to the latest report from the Independent Police Investigative Directorate (IPID) which claims that between 720 to 900 people died in SAPoliceService custody in the book year 2011/2 alone. (depending on which source wrote the story).  Deaths in SAPS custody were 695 in 2006 and by 2010 they had reached 860 deaths.

  • By 2011, they were well above 900 deaths. Let’s repeat that again: more than 900 people died in police-custody in 2011 ALONE.  Only the annual Amnesty International summaries have some paragraphs tucked away mentioning this horrific fact. No screaming headlines, no frantic international protest actions. Why did world opinion come to such a screeching halt once the ANC came to power?

By April 11 2013, it was reported by the SABC that  ‘at least’ 720 people had died  ‘due to police conduct’ in the 2011/2 book year: but that only 36 people were convicted for those offences. The SABC quoted the Independent Police Investigation Directorate spokesman Moses Dlamini.( The Sunday Times quoted ‘at least 900 people’) .The IPID also revealed that it had received almost 5,000 complaints against the SAPS during the 2011/12 financial year (which runs from March 2011 to April 2012).

BikoHungerStrikeStoryRandDailyMailWasNotHelenZilleStoryButMINE Above: On 18 August 1977, activist Steve Biko, 31, who was Ghandi-ite: a supporter of non-violent confrontation – as opposed to the ANC’s armed struggle —  was arrested at a police roadblock under the Terrorism Act No 83 of 1967 and interrogated by officers of the Port Elizabeth security police including Harold Snyman and Gideon Nieuwoudt. This interrogation took place in the Police Room 619 of the Sanlam Building in Port Elizabeth.The interrogation lasted twenty-two hours and included torture and beatings resulting in a coma.[15] He suffered a major head injury while in police custody at the Walmer Police Station, in a suburb of Port Elizabeth, and was chained to a window grille for a day. On 11 September 1977, police loaded him in the back of a Land Rover, naked and restrained in manacles, and began the 1100 km drive to Pretoria to take him to a prison with hospital facilities.He was nearly dead owing to the previous injuries.[19] He died shortly after arrival at the Pretoria prison, on 12 September. The police claimed his death was the result of an extended hunger strike, but an autopsy revealed multiple bruises and abrasions and that he ultimately succumbed to a brain hemorrhage from the massive injuries to the head,[15] Later post mortems revealed that he had died from a counter-coup injury to the brain.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Biko

———————

Reorganisation of the SA Police from 1990 transition period:

From 1990,  the “apartheid-era”- SA Police:  ( background on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_African_Police ) was enlarged and reorganized while the country was entering the ‘transition period from apartheid to a non-racial society’ . The police also were renamed, and are now called the SAPoliceService  ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_African_Police_Service ).

  • Because their statistic record-keeping also was reorganised, It can thus be very clearly established that before 1990 –  i.e. during the height of the apartheid years – the numbers of people who actually died in police custody were very much lower than the present horrendous death rate in the cells of the current SA Police Service. Every death in any police cell anywhere in the world is always one death too many. With efficient, strictly controlled and supervised policing, such deaths in police custody should not occur at all.

More relevant statistics to help make comparisons: by 1987  South Africa had 4,8 million whites and 18,2 million blacks. The SA police were undermanned during the sixties and early seventies – when the size of the SA police force declined relative to the population.  By 2013, South Africa had a population which was soaring well above 51-million, with at least 8million illegal black-Africans from the rest of the continent, not included in this total by SA Statistics.

  • Police increased from 48,991 members to 93,600 by 1991 and was renamed South African Police Force:
  • By 1981 the police force of roughly 48,991 members represented a ratio of less than 1.5 police per 1,000 people, down from 1.67 per 1,000 people in the 1960s. Alarmed by the increased political violence and crime in the mid-1980s and by the lack of adequate police support, officials then increased the size of the police force to 93,600—a ratio of 2.7 per 1,000 people—by 1991 and the police was renamed to the SAPoliceService.

Before the reorganisation, the SA police were authorized to act on behalf of other government officials when called upon. For example, in rural areas and small towns, where there may be no public prosecutor available, police personnel could institute criminal proceedings. Some ” small-town’ police officers even conducted their own legal post-mortem examinations under the guidance of local doctors. The police could also legally serve as wardens, court clerks, and messengers, as well as immigration, health, and revenue officials. In some circumstances, the police were also authorized to serve as vehicle inspectors, postal agents, and local court personnel.

By 2013 the number of police officers had increased to 225,000 members. Yet — amazingly, with apartheid “officially ended” —  the current government obsessively maintains very detailed records of the racial composition of all the country’s workers, including its police-force – while not maintaining any racial demographics of their crime-statistics. (The SAPS currently also consist of a large reserve division named the “South African Reserve Police Service” who often work as low-paid part-time patrol officers with local Citizen-Policing-Forums.)  The total policing force has about 225,000 members. In 2010 the police were ‘remilitarised’ after having been reorganized on a civilian basis at the end of apartheid. Some crime-experts believe that this has also been a key cause of an escalation in political repression by the police.[17] 

  • Guarding police-rights:
  • Since 1996, three police unions were founded to represent police personnel’s rights. These are the Police and Prisons Civil Rights Union, which has about 150 000 members; the South African Police Union (SAPU), which has about 35,000 members; and the Public Service Association (PSA), which has about 4,000 members.
  • The ANC-government notes that the commissioned officers in the force in 2011 were 57% black, 28% white, 10% coloured, 5% Indian; 70% male, 30% female. Non-commissioned officers were 78% black, 10% coloured, 10% white, 2% Indian; 78% male, 22% female.[1] In reality many of the ‘white’ posts remain unfilled, with whites actively discouraged to apply for these jobs or denied advancement in these posts

 

932 people died in police custody in SA in 2011/2 – in one year:

Meanwhile, eight police officers, implicated in the death of an East Rand taxi driver, are expected to appear in the Daveyton Magistrate’s Court on Monday.The two warrant officers and six constables face a murder charge following the death of Mozambican citizen Mido Macia while in police custody.The officers were video-taped – this was placed on YouTube – tying 27-year-old Macia to the back of a police van and dragging him along a street in Daveyton .Macia, died at the local police station’s cells several hours later. His body was found by a police officer on Tuesday night. A post mortem revealed he died of head- and internal injuries.Ipid spokesman Moses Dlamini said police reported that they had earlier found Macia wrongfully parked on a road and ordered him to move. Macia’s death caused a public outcry against police brutality.The Dispatch Online reported that the Ipid was also investigating the death of a policeman who died in police custody at the Barkly East police station in January, a day after he was detained for allegedly being drunk.

Afrikaner leaders Hofmeyr and Roodt warn of genocide

 July 2 2013 – Two top Afrikaner cultural leaders with very large combined online follower-groups numbering into the many tens of thousands —  namely Dr Dan Roodt of the Pro Afrikaans Action Group, and the hugely popular activist/singer Steve Hofmeyr,both today issue urgent calls for the Afrikaners themselves to launch immediate awareness campaign amongst their own kin – alerting them to the fact that they now are in a situation of ‘extreme and unacceptably violent danger’. Both cultural leaders say that the Afrikaner tribe are hurtling headlong into the final stage of genocide – as was also warned about by the International Campaign to Prevent Genocide.

  • Dr Dan Roodt video call: “95 percent of the respondents in my survey on Pro Afrikaans Action Group believe they are in the final stage of genocide. This current level of violence targetting us is totally unacceptable’ : video Juy 2 2013: http://youtu.be/pDtc2w70bfY
  • Steve Hofmeyr writes in July 2 article on his website: “My Tribe Is Dying” http://stevehofmeyr.co.za/website/home

These two well-informed Afrikaner cultural leaders have good reason to be concerned:

  • Urgent video call: Dr Dan Roodt, Pro-Afrikaans Action Group: “The Genocide Is Unacceptable” (Die Volksmoord Is Onaanvaardbaar)

    View: http://youtu.be/pDtc2w70bfY

    He said: “ 95% of #Afrikaners in my online survey agreed that they are in the final stage of #genocide. Thos current level of violence targeting us Afrikaners is totallly unacceptable”. He called on all his fellow-Afrikaners to be even more alert than they were before: “It is dangerous everywhere”, he said: “Our people now often cannot go out at all: we all now live in a situation of extreme danger. We must make all our people aware of what is happening in our country. The high level of violence is becoming a ‘normal’ situation to which we should never become immured — we are being plunged into a serious crisis situation’.

    He urged all his people to launch immediate awareness campaigns amongst themselves: “Do It Tomorrow’ he warned —  noting:

    • “A small group of us can change this attitude amongst those of our people who still deny these facts. Each one of us must launch a determined awareness campaign making use of every aspect of the New Media online — but also but also with personal posters and personalised publicity-actions amongst all our people. We don’t want to make war — we want to make certain of our own security and safety — for ourselves and our children. “We must focus on making everyone aware of our present precarious situation: we have the new media, facebook, twitter, websites we can all use, one can also distribute pamphlets, in the churches, other community forums, we must make ourselves aware very much aware of this crisis and we must also realise that also that this present high level of violence against us, is totally unacceptable. We cannot become used to this, immured to this, as if it is ‘normal’. Please all of you — start your own awareness campaigns and start these tomorrow!” he urged on his video:

    • 55 white women murdered by unknown black males since 15 May 2012 in South Africa:
      http://www.censorbugbear.org/farmitracker//reports/view/1181

    Afrikaner activist/singer Steve Hofmeyr writes: “My Tribe Is Dying” – and gets attacked by socalled ‘crime experts’ AfricaCheck

    Steve Hofmeyr slams the ‘crime experts’ why deny the extraordinarily high level of hatecrimes and violence targeting Afrikaners. He writes that ‘these critics AfricaCheck and the Afrikaans weekly Rapport, ‘have the tak of pacifying South Africans be reconciling their ‘accurate’ SA Police Service statistics with what the world has come to experience as the most dubious stats in the most murderous society in the world. dan@praag.org  https://twitter.com/danroodt

    • “They do this by guilty-tripping South African whites into believing that ‘proportionally’ they should be committing 1,500 of the 18,000 murders per year… With ethnicities not disclosed (in the SAPS stats) white people cannot researched this: as this will be alleged to be ‘wrongly motivated. And black people will not do that for other reasons: that kills the research in the first place. Similar steps were considered in the US when it was found that blacks committed 100 percent of the 3,620 rapes on  blacks in 2005 (Bureau of Justice Statistics, US Criminal Victimisaiton Statistical Tables). Not a single black person was raped (in the USA) by a Caucasian that year.

    “To these critics fall the staggering responsility of explaining to white farmers, their disdain of the SA farmers’ predicament.,” he writes. The white SA farmer is victim to more murders per capita of their group than any other community on earth (Philip du Toit, The Great South African Land Scandal, 2004). The 315/100,000 farm murdes in SA in 2009 completely overshadow the Iraqi War mortality rate of 147 per 100,000.

    Erring on the conservative side of the publication “Land of Sorrows’ records more than 3,319 attacks but warn that the actual number of people killed on (SA) farms (1,610) is much higher in all likelihood (Van Zyl and Herman, 2012).These specific murders exhibit most of the other hallmarks of genocide: e.g. extreme brutality, racist slogans, cultural disdain, entitlement propaganda, exclusion (by law) from the SA workforce (by pallor-based policies of Black Economic Empowerment laws, Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment, Affirmative Action, PP, EE, quotes and ‘representativity’.

    The ISS researcher Dr Johan Burger estimated the murder rate of commercial farmers at 98,8 per 100,000 — fourteen times the world average; three times the SA murder rate; rwice as high as the murder rate amongs SA police officers (at 51 per 100,000 killed).  And still, Rapport and AfricaCheck insist that no claim can be made that any tribe is suffering any substantial losses’.

    White farmers’ murders gravitate between levels 5 and 6 on the International Genocide Watch scale of genocide:

    • “The Farm Murders are being planned, they are not accidents or robberies… so often nothing is stolen, they were just murdered in hatecrimes, people’s bodies are desecrated, disemboweled, chopped up, left with symbols indicating this was a hatecrime such an opened Afrikaner Bible on the bodies…’

    Hofmeyr writes|: “These critics must yet vilify international figures and fears beyond the reach of local bias: White farmer-murders gravitate between levels 5 and 6 on the International Genocide Watch scale of genocide of Dr Gregory Stanton in the USA. Level 8 is when genocide is over and National Denial sets in.  (…) Video:

    http://youtu.be/ylKgntJcP4s

    Hofmeyr asks: “How do Rapport and AfricaCheck arrive at their low White Death Rate figures when their ONLY source explicitly does NOT keep statistics in ethical or racial terms? (…) As the SAPS and the State do not deem the white crisis as problematic, farm murder statistics were last released in 2007. But social medica sites abound where victims can now volunteer their own experiences, independently, and where farm murders STILL never drop below 4 murders per month (May 2012-June 2013 http//sunettebridges.co.za/home/blog/. )

    “Clearly my estimate that we lose someone in a farm murder every five days may prove to be erring on the conservative side. The official Tranvaal Agricultural Union statistics for 2012 are 141 farm attacks and 51 murders. This year however – by June 2013 – we had already cross the 100 farm-attacks mark.

    • Nechama Brodie is quoted as stating in Rapport (June 30 2013) that more white SA women are murdered by their ‘lovers’ than by unknown black men”. Hofmeyr challenges this, writing: “We have in our keep the names of 56 white SA women murdered by ‘unknown black men’ in the past 14 months alone. I now challenge her to provide the NAMES of the 56+ white SA women who ‘were murdered by their lovers in that period up to June 8 2013.’ 

    (editor: Following are the names of these white women who were murdered by unknown black males since 15 May 2012 to date in South Africa: and those are only the ones who allowed their names ot be published http://www.censorbugbear.org/farmitracker//reports/view/1181 )

    Hofmeyr continues: “That we cannot fit in (all the white victims of SA crime) into an average sport stadium is deftly reputed by the ProAfrikaansActionGroup here: “Nechama Brodie uses faulty crime statistics to vilify Afrikaner singer Steve Hofmeyr: http://t.co/R6pcEPoVgKThe stadium, capacity and period was fabricated by AfricaCheck, but our 8% of the INTERPOL death rate will easily fill an 80,000 seater).

    • Far more than facts, it is people’s emotions and experiences that matter. If ten farmers in your vicinity have died, are you supposed to feel better knowing that it is 0.0002% of the population and that other races/groups are far more affected? The notion that ‘others have it worse’ is psychologically proven as ineffective. So ‘our people die like flies’ is still applicable, emotionally – and does not need to be supported by ‘facts’- particularly if so few of the facts are reliable’.

    Hofmeyr concludes: “Different cultures/groups respond differently to mortality rates. Far be it for anybody to prescribe to any demographic (minority) when they should feel threatened or not. When extreme minorities attest to ‘dying like flies,’ majorities can never be expected to reliably react on their behalf. This the ANC-regime insists on under the banner of what they call ‘ national unity’. When presented with five reliable sources to back their arguments, AfricaCheck opted for the one that underlined their selective agenda best.

    The Messina landmine — planted by ANC-terrorists Mthetheleli Z Mncube 28 and Nzondeleli Nondula 25, on December 15 1985 – killed six Afrikaner civilians including 3 small children, and injured six others seriously: all were members of the Van Eck and De Nyschen families. The terrorists later claimed at their trial that they had earlier been shot at by a white farmer, but had been ‘ordered by their commander not to fire on civilians’. The two members of uMkhonteWeSize, the ‘armed wing’ of the ANC which was headed by Nelson Mandela, were were sentenced to death, However their sentence was commuted to life. They were given amnesty by ArchbishopDesmond Tutu’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission.

    ‘ Why should we pray for Nelson Mandela? ‘

    On July 1 2013, an angry Afrikaner writes: “Mandela’s heritage: the victims of the land-mine exploded by ANC-terrorists in Messina: December 15 1985: Mandela later gave these murderers medals. Three year old Michael van Eck was so badly mutilated that his grandfather and parents were never able to see these police-forensic photos.  And this is the man we have to ‘pray;  for him to heal? May he choke on the blood of his victims, drown in the tears of their relatives whose lives he destroyed forever.”

    MESSINA LANDMINE – details:

    15 December, 1985 – Six Afrikaner civilians,  including three children aged between three and nine, were killed and three seriously injured in a landmine explosion on the fenced-in Chatsworth game farm 25 kilometers to the west of Messina Northern Transvaal.  Johannes Frederick van Eck, his wife, son and daughter were spending the December holidays with friends, the De Nysschen family. The adults and small children were viewing wildlife when the landmine was detonated beneath their vehicle along a dirt-road. Mr van Eck later testified that the vehicle caught fire very quickly as he had just filled it before going on their trip on the dirt roads of the the wildlife farm.

    The day after this attack, the African National Congress proudly announced from Lusaka that it accepted responsibility. The two Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK) members responsible for buried the landmine, Mthetheleli Z. Mncube 28, and Nzondeleli E. Nondula 25, were initially jailed. Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission gave the two murderers amnesty. (*The ANC-history version in 2013 does not mention the names of all the civilian victims, it only glorifies the killers.) http://www.sahistory.org.za/dated-event/six-people-are-killed-anc-landmine-explosion

    *The ANC propaganda:

    At the trial of Mthetheleli Mncube 28 and Mzondeleli Nondula 25, they claimed that they had earlier had been fired upon by a farmer, but ‘were ordered by their commander not to return fire as they did not want to kill or injure civilians…’ -The ANC propagandists wrote: “The trial of Mncube and Nondula must rank as one of the most infamous in a country renowned for fixed trials. Both men were sentenced to death after facing some 40 charges arising out of a series of landmine explosions in the northern Transvaal. In this border area of South Africa  farmers are de facto members of the apartheid security forces. Mncube faced two additional murder charges following his escape while being taken in to Messina.  While blindfolded and handcuffed, he grabbed an AK-47, shot his captors and escaped. He was recaptured nine days later. Mncube readily admitted that he was an ANC soldier, and told how he and four others had entered South Africa. The group was on a reconnaissance mission of SADF bases and patrol patterns in the border areas. Their mission had been aborted after a farmer spotted them and alerted the police and SADF. Mncube told the court that their commander, who, with two other members of the group, later was shot dead in an exchange of fire with the SADF, “ordered them not to return fire when the farmer opened fire on them as they did not want to kill or injure civilians: ‘We could have wiped them out if the commanding officer had ordered us to do so`, but instead the group had retreated, he claimed in evidence. Both were sentenced to death. All peace- and freedom-loving people the world over should ensure these heroic soldiers of Umkhonto we Sizwe are  not executed. ” http://www.anc.org.za/show.php?id=3737#MNCUBE

    Summary:

    “Initially there were four Applicants in this matter. At the hearing, the legal representative who appeared on behalf of the first Applicant, Ronnie Kasrils, contended that there was no application before the Committee since his client was not in a position to identify particular incidents in respect of which he would qualify for amnesty. The Committee did not accept this argument and his application was struck from the roll. The remaining three Applicants who all testified under oath proceeded with their applications. They apply for amnesty for certain offences and delicts flowing from landmine explosions that occurred on rural roads in the Messina district during the latter part of 1985. The Applicant, Mncube, managed to escape after his initial arrest. During his escape he shot dead two policemen Theunis Johannes Gerber and Joachim Marthinus Nel on 26 December 1996. He is also applying for amnesty for these killings. He was later re-arrested, charged and convicted together with the Applicant, Nondula, on a number of criminal charges relating to the explosions. Applicant Mbuli was never arrested nor charged and he is applying for amnesty for all offences flowing from or associated with the landmine explosions that occurred in the area. According to the evidence, he was in the same group as the Applicant, Mncube.The laying of the landmines, sanctioned by the African National Congress (ANC) leadership (*including Nelson Mandela) and the Umkhonto weSizwe (MK) High Command, targeted members of the security forces and commandos who were patrolling the Messina border area but resulted in the deaths and injury of a substantial number of civilians.

    There were altogether eight incidents involving the explosion of landmines.

    • 1. An explosion damaging a vehicle KGD 621T on 26 November 1985 at or near Weipe in the district of Messina which resulted in the death of Mr Edward Meluba and injury of the driver of the vehicle, Mr Elija Makgamata.
    • 2. An explosion damaging a Toyota bakkie KMN 580T belonging to a Mr Gert de Villiers on 26 November 1985 at or near Messina.
    • 3. An explosion damaging a tractor TD 2860 on 27 November near Weipe in the district of Messina resulting in the death of Mr Glabi Philemon Ncube.
    • 4. And explosion involving a military vehicle R23654 on the farm Bergen-on-Zoom at or near Messina on 27 November 1985 on the farm Overvlakte in the district of Messina injuring Constable Philemon Motaung.
    • 5. (information missing from TRC record)
    • 6. An explosion involving a police Casspir vehicle BDL 706 B on 27 November 1985 on the farm Overvlakte in the district of Messina injuring a Mr Fourie and Mr Piet Mapotele.
    • 7. An explosion killing six and injuring five occupants of a Nissan bakkie KRN 675 T, near Messina on 15 December 1985. All the occupants were members of the De Nysschen and/or Van Eck families.
    • 8. An explosion on 12 December 1986 involving a vehicle KDL 571 T on the farm Overvlakte at or near Messina injuring Mr Willem du Plessis Janse van Rensburg.

    The terrorists were ‘merely foot soldiers who followed orders…’ & they could not deny that the victims were civilians

    — The applications were opposed by members of the De Nysschen and Van Eck families on the ground that the Applicants went outside the parameters of the campaign that was authorised by the leadership of the ANC. At the conclusion of the hearing an application was made on behalf of the abovementioned victims that certain individuals from the ANC leadership be subpoenaed to give further evidence to shed further light on this issue.   However in an interim ruling this application was refused. The Committee found that the Applicants were “merely foot soldiers who only obeyed the orders given to them by their commanders.”

    All three remaining Applicants were members of MK and were part of a twelve-man unit which was tasked to lay the landmines. They received their briefing before entering the country from their overall commander only known as Mancheck. After entering the country, the unit was split into two groups of six. Applicant Nondula was in the group commanded by one Agrippa and Applicants Mncube and Mbuli were in the group that was commanded by one Chilies. Despite the fact that the unit split into two groups after having entered South Africa they clearly associated themselves with the whole operation as set out at the time of the initial briefing by Mancheck. The Applicants were not involved in the reconnaissance of the area where the mines were to be laid. Their only involvement in the incidents was to attend the briefing prior to infiltrating into the country and, once in the country, laying the mines. They did not select the places where the mines were planted. They planted the mines in execution of orders given to them by their respective commanders. The Applicants were not in a position to identify the individual victims and the exact consequences of the explosions. They could therefore not deny that the victims, identified in the subsequent police investigation, and as set out in the indictment in the criminal trial of the Applicants Mncube and Nondula, correctly reflect their identities.  http://www.justice.gov.za/trc/decisions/2001/ac21093.htm

    ( Note that Ronnie Kasrils, who was head of Military Intelligence and Military Intelligence, and provided maps of border areas and the farm- and security network claimed he had not given ‘instructions by him that anyone should come and reconnoiter the area in Messina. ‘He says he gave instructions on how to do reconnaissance, how to plan for this and on the collection of data.’ Kasrils did not at any stage intend to apply for amnesty with regard to this matter.”  Entire transcript Read more on http://www.justice.gov.za/trc/amntrans/2000/200703me.htm

    Testimony cross-examination of Mzondelele Euthlid Nondula application for amnesty:  AM7275\97 Re: Landmine explosions and deaths of members of the De Nysschen and Van Eck families

    EXAMINATION BY MR KOOPEDI: Mr Nondula, I’m showing to you page 23 of the bundle of documents. There is an application form there. Is this your application form?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, it is.

    MR KOOPEDI: And I’m also showing you page 28 of the same bundle of documents, there is a signature under which the word “deponent” is written, is that your signature?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, it is.

    MR KOOPEDI: Now Mr Nondula, were you a member of a political organisation at any stage?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, I was.

    MR KOOPEDI: Which political organization?

    MR NONDULA: The African National Congress.

    MR KOOPEDI: When did you join the African National Congress?

    MR NONDULA: In 1982.

    MR KOOPEDI: Where did you join the African National Congress?

    MR NONDULA: In Lesotho.

    MR KOOPEDI: Did you belong to the military wing of the African National Congress?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, I was a member of uMmkhontoWeSizwe.

    MR KOOPEDI: Did you receive any military training and if you did, briefly tell this Honourable Committee what military training did you receive and where did you receive it?

    MR NONDULA: The first basic training was in Angola, a six month course and from there was in then East Germany and then the other I did was in Tanzania, Commander’s course.

    MR KOOPEDI: Now after you were trained, did you have an opportunity to be infiltrated into the country?

    MR NONDULA: yes.

    MR KOOPEDI: And when was this? When were you infiltrated into the country and perhaps if you could be very broad about that. Tell this Honourable Committee whether you belonged to any unit then and if so, how many of you were in that unit.

    MR NONDULA: That was in 1985 when we were first infiltrated, being a unit of twelve.

    MR KOOPEDI: Do you recall the month?

    MR NONDULA: November, I think it’s November 1985. What actually transpired is, we were first briefed by our fellow Commander as to the nature of the operation that we were going to undertake, which in this case was landmines. The briefing went thus: politically speaking the Soutpansberg area was regarded, now let me say in military terms, the farming community in this area was regarded as the first echelon of defence in the sense that the population there was actually sponsored or even encouraged by the Government to maintain that area as being the trained personnel, therefore in this sense, legitimate targets in the view of MK and the African National Congress. They were trained as Commandos to safeguard the border area and thus our order was then given to operate in the area.

    MR KOOPEDI: Now I need you to get to your infiltration. Did you belong to any unit?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, as I’ve said, we were a unit of twelve.

    MR KOOPEDI: Now who was the Commander of this unit? Because as you would have it there were people commanding this unit, who was the Commander of this unit?

    MR NONDULA: Okay. The frontal Commander was Mancheck, unfortunately I don’t have his real name at this stage.

    CHAIRPERSON: Sorry, Mr Nondula, could you spell that?

    MR SIBANYONI: Maybe while you are there, you said you were briefed, who briefed you?

    MR NONDULA: It was Mancheck himself who briefed us.

    MR SIBANYONI: Thank you.

    MR NONDULA: And thereafter we were transported to along the borders of Zimbabwe, just across the Limpopo, by the other side of Limpopo river where we stayed and slept overnight. It was then decided that the unit must be divided into two, meaning six/six, each person carrying a landmine and a rifle and other …(indistinct)

    The two units now, had to have different Commanders. On the other unit in which I was in, it was …(indistinct), he was the Commander.

    CHAIRPERSON: Sorry, what was his name?

    MR NONDULA: Agrippa.

    CHAIRPERSON: Agrippa?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, Mr Chairperson.

    CHAIRPERSON: Was that a code name?

    MR NONDULA: Yes and the other unit then was commanded by Chilies.

    CHAIRPERSON: Chilies?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, Sir.

    CHAIRPERSON: Yes.

    MR NONDULA: Then we slept over this side of the river for preparing ourselves for now the actual crossing of the border, which we did the following day at night, I would say around 9, past 9 somewhere there. Then we went – we travelled deeper into the South, because the instructions were: “In the area in which you operate, there are patrols, security patrols.” The order then was to lay these mine fields in the roads that are actually used for patrolling the area. The following day we travelled almost the whole night …(intervention)

    CHAIRPERSON: Sorry. When you say you travelled, was that on foot?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, on foot yes, we walked, I’ll say, …(indistinct) We slept because we could not operate during the day so we had to …(indistinct) ourselves somewhere under bushes until it was dusk, then we began walking, moving now towards the border area, the border fence and on instruction, it’s unfortunate at this stage I cannot remember the actual spots were certain landmines were laid, but then on instruction of an order, we would dig and then we placed the mine field and then we carry on. The idea being that they should not be too clustered in case of detection.

    CHAIRPERSON: So when you say on instruction you would dig and lay the landmine, in your unit, would you be the person giving the instruction?

    MR NONDULA: That was Agrippa.Yes and also him, because he was, together with Chilies, the person who initially undertook reconnaissance in the area and I think I should add here that he was, Agrippa in this sense, he was almost familiar with the area itself because of reconnaissance that he had already undertaken. So we laid these mine fields, all six of them and on the third day, we spent two nights inside, then on the third night we crossed over to Zimbabwe, that must have been on a Wednesday.

    CHAIRPERSON: Now when you say you laid the six mines, were these on different roads or all on the same road, but at different places?

    MR NONDULA: Not on the same road, different roads that actually lead to the main patrol route along the fence and the last one was actually put there on that patrol route, Mr Chairperson.

    CHAIRPERSON: Yes and these mines that you laid, could you describe them? I know very little about mines, I don’t know if they come in different sizes, if some are stronger than others. If you could just briefly describe the type of mines which you laid.

    MR NONDULA: It must have been the weight of more or less 6 kgs, brown of a …(indistinct) casing, with – now the substance I am not very sure now whether it was meant to be …(indistinct) mines, it should have been filled up with TNT, I think so.

    CHAIRPERSON: If you could just indicate with your hands about the size of the mine.

    MR NONDULA: It must have been this size.

    CHAIRPERSON: You’re indicating about 25 cm, I suppose, just less than a foot. Would that be round?

    MR NONDULA: Ja, it’s round and brown.

    CHAIRPERSON: Yes, thank you.

    MR KOOPEDI: Thank you Chairperson. You’ve mentioned that your frontal Commander was Mancheck, but now who would have been the Commander, the actual Commander for this unit, the entire unit of twelve people before you were actually split into two?

    MR NONDULA: He was the one. ja, because all the briefings we got from him, logistical arrangements and that kind of thing.

    MR NONDULA: Chairperson, that is the evidence of the first applicant then.

    NO FURTHER QUESTIONS BY MR KOOPEDI

    ——————————-

    CROSS-EXAMINATION BY MR WAGENER: Prior to this incident, what training did you receive in military weapons?

    MR NONDULA: The kind of training we received is the normal basic training, rifles, artillery, marching drill, we used to call it topography at that stage. Okay then it was intelligence, counter-intelligence.

    MR WAGENER: Did you receive any training whatsoever in explosives?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, engineering, we actually did it, that’s it …(indistinct)

    MR WAGENER: What was the nature of this training?

    MR NONDULA: The nature of the training?

    MR WAGENER: In explosives.

    MR NONDULA: In explosives?

    MR WAGENER: Yes.

    MR NONDULA: You’re actually taught to use explosives for sabotage purposes, like normal training any other soldier would get, if I got the question correctly.

    CHAIRPERSON: Was this training, this engineering, where did you receive that, Angola or East Germany?

    MR NONDULA: In Angola and East Germany, it’s an over …(indistinct) training.

    MR WAGENER: During the course of this training, did you ever handle landmines as such?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, we did.

    MR WAGENER: Did you lie to the criminal court when you testified that you had received no prior training in landmines?

    MR NONDULA: I must have lied.

    MR WAGENER: Are you asking for amnesty for lying to the Court?

    MR NONDULA: I’m asking for amnesty, yes I would say for lying, if I did lie at that stage and also for the fact that the act itself says: “Let’s reconciliate” and I am now on that road.

    MR WAGENER: Can you show me where in your written application do you ask for amnesty for lying to the Court?

    MR NONDULA: No, I don’t know that.

    MR WAGENER: Sorry?

    MR NONDULA: I’m not aware about it.

    MR WAGENER: Before you entered the Republic of South Africa on this specific mission, what were your exact instructions? Can you please tell us?

    MR NONDULA: The exact instructions were to lay landmines along the patrol routes in this vicinity.

    MR WAGENER: Were you not supposed to first enter our country merely for purposes of reconnaissance and draw up maps where the military patrols were and then report back to your military headquarters in Zambia?

    MR NONDULA: That part did not include this unit at that stage. The people who were doing reconnaissance, as I said, were Agrippa and Chilies, they were the people who did all that and they reported back.

    MR WAGENER: When was that reconnaissance done?

    MR NONDULA: In 1985, I’m not sure now the actual months, it must be somewhere September or August, somewhere there, because reconnaissance is something that carries on, it’s a continuous thing.

    MR WAGENER: Are you personally aware of what you’re saying now? Are you personally aware of this prior reconnaissance?

    MR NONDULA: Am I aware of?

    MR WAGENER: This prior reconnaissance of the other terrorists?

    MR NONDULA: I am aware …

    MR WAGENER: Sorry, sorry, sorry, who was that speaking now? Who was that speaking to you next to you?

    MR NONDULA: My comrade.

    MR WAGENER: What did he say? What did you friend say?

    MR NONDULA: I didn’t hear him, I was answering you.

    CHAIRPERSON: Please, when a witness is giving evidence, if he could not be spoken to. Sorry, the question that you asked Mr Wagener, was were you aware of the reconnaissance mentioned by you done by Agrippa and Chilies, at what stage are you talking about? At the time it was done or when?

    MR WAGENER: Ja, before the group of twelve left for South Africa.

    MR KOOPEDI: And Chairperson, excuse me, if I may just interpose. I believe the reaction that we got here, stems from the fact that my Learned Friend is referring to people as terrorists and from where I come from and from where these applicants come from, that’s an insult Chairperson and if my Learned Friend would refrain from such references, I do not think we will have bursts. Thank you Chairperson.

    CHAIRPERSON: Yes, I think Mr Wagener, if you can just respect that.

    MR WAGENER: Were you present in Zambia or Zimbabwe, or wherever, when these two friends of your reported back about their reconnaissance?

    MR NONDULA: The briefing that we were given was from the fact that an information has been gathered as to the military activities within the area and the persons therefore who were going to be our Commanders were in the know, so it was made known to us that they are capable, they know the area, they will be able to lead us to the area, so in that sense, yes.

    MR WAGENER: Did they show you any maps perhaps, that they drew up where the roads were supposed – or the roads where the mines were to be laid?

    MR NONDULA: Yes.

    MR WAGENER: And were those the roads where the mines were in fact laid on your mission?

    MR NONDULA: I may not necessarily be accurate on that information, but to the best of my knowledge we did manage to plant them where we were supposed to plant them.

    MR WAGENER; Will it surprise you to know that you and your friends planted a landmine that eventually killed the family of my client, that you planted that on a farm where no military vehicle or no military patrol has ever been before this incident?

    MR NONDULA: As I’ve said earlier, no knowledge in as far as I am concerned, was actually targeted towards a particular family or particular person, the operation in total was to the best of my knowledge, a military operation in a military area.

    MR WAGENER: Well, I put it to you that you planted a mine on a farm on a road where there’s never ever been a military vehicle whatsoever prior to this incident, what do you say about that?

    MR NONDULA: All I would say about that is in as far as I was concerned at that stage, people who were in the vicinity, were regarded as military personnel and I can assure you, patrols in the area by military vehicles were there. As to whether at that particular point in time it was not, that does not concern me at this stage, it didn’t concern me even then.

    MR WAGENER: I want to come back. Can you deny that this landmine was laid on a farm where there’s never been any military patrols? It was a holiday farm.

    MR NONDULA: I know nothing about a holiday farm, all I know is the area in itself is a military area, that’s all I can answer to that question, Sir.

    MR WAGENER: Why do you say that?

    MR NONDULA: I was in the area myself, I did see patrols at some point. I did see patrols of military vehicles in the area and the debriefing, as I’ve said earlier, was and I believed in that also, was that the first echelon of defence was composed of the Commandos who were along the border areas of South Africa, not necessarily in Messina, but of South Africa and that is the job that they did.

    MR WAGENER: This farmer on whose farm you planted the specific mine that killed my client’s family, was he a member of the Commandos?

    MR NONDULA: I would believe so.

    MR WAGENER: Well, I put it to you he was not.

    MR NONDULA: I didn’t know.

    MR WAGENER: He was not even resident on that farm.

    MR NONDULA: I didn’t know even that.

    MR WAGENER: He merely occasionally visited this farm, can you deny that?

    MR NONDULA: I don’t know about it.

    MR WAGENER: Well, if you can accept what I’ve just said, that this was a person staying in another part of our country and this is merely his holiday farm, he’s not a member of the Commandos, there’s no military patrols whatsoever on his farm, on what basis do you say this farm is part of a military zone?

    MR NONDULA: On the basis that this is Soutpansberg Military area and according to my briefing which I believed completely, that personnel in this area were actually military personnel and it is only on that basis that I acted with a clear conscience, if I may say so.

    MR WAGENER: Mr Nondula, have you see the statistics of this terror campaign of yours? Have you see the results, the end results?

    MR NONDULA: As you may know, I was physically, I was illusionally involved when the trial went on, I saw everything that was – I was supposed to have seen as evidence and photographical evidence and as verbal evidence given in a Court.

    MR WAGENER: Can you deny that 25 people were killed in this landmine campaign, although you were not involved in all the incidents, 25 people were killed, of whom 24 were civilians?

    MR NONDULA: I cannot deny.

    MR WAGENER: So you killed only one our of 25 military personnel.

    MR NONDULA: That must have been the case then. I cannot deny those statistics.

    MR WAGENER: And the 24 people killed, were they legitimate targets, according to your organisation, the ANC?

    MR NONDULA: What was regarded as a legitimate target at that stage, was the personnel in this area that I believed to be military personnel, that was legitimate.

    MR WAGENER: Yes. And then you went on and you laid a mine on a farm where there’s never been any military personnel and is that how you and your unit thought, how you were going to attack the military opponents?

    MR NONDULA: Sir, it’s quite regrettable that in a situation of intensity of conflict, that blood had to be shed, tears had to flow and in many, many cases, this is not only the only case, that some people do become victims, the innocent ones.

    MR SIBANYONI: I’m sorry Mr Wagener, can I try to get some clarity here? It doesn’t appear very clear whether you were targeting specific roads to lay these landmines, or were you targeting a certain area, a zone, within which you were going to – you had instructions to lay the landmines, what was the debriefing?

    MR NONDULA: The briefing Sir was the area in which we were going to operate is actually peopled with military personnel and thus to make our presence felt, we had to target the roads along the border where the military personnel travelled.

    MR SIBANYONI: Was this area indicated in terms of the distance? How long from the border itself, or what was the description?

    MR NONDULA: The discretion at some point rested also with the Commander because we were briefed clearly that we should at least not be more than 10 kilometres from the border at least and in that case 10 kilometres from the border, it meant we had to be in the country and come back as soon as possible, before we could be vulnerable ourselves.

    MR SIBANYONI: Thank you Mr Wagener.

    CHAIRPERSON: Sorry Mr Wagener, if I could just ask, while we’re on this point. It’s a long border between Zimbabwe and South Africa. Could you give us a closer description of where you actually crossed? Do you know this area at all, Mr Nondula, now as you sit here? Do you know, in relation to let’s say Messina, where was it? Was it towards the Kruger Park side, or was it towards the Botswana side, or how far from Messina more or less, that your unit, Agrippa’s unit operated?

    MR NONDULA: Yes. Mr Chairperson, I am sorry, at this stage I will not be able to furnish you with the cases of the matter because I’m not very familiar with the terrain itself. It was my first time to be inside South Africa, through this area, travelling at night, but from the map that we were given, the area was divided into two and I would simply say that from our point of view we were on the western side of the area, then the other unit was on the eastern side of the area, so I cannot really say to you if you move this direction then you’ll see this place, in this kind of situation.

    CHAIRPERSON: Yes.

    ADV BOSMAN: Mr Wagener, may I just clarify something here? Mr Nondula you described these roads as patrol roads.

    MR NONDULA: Yes, Ma’am.

    ADV BOSMAN: Can you sort of perhaps just clarify in relation to other roads, were they sort of like farm roads? Were they secondary roads? Were they primary roads, or isn’t it possible for you to indicate?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, I can, Ma’am. The one identical road is the one that stretches along the border fence itself. Now you also have the adjoining ones. That means now as they patrol, they have to go around the area itself, so those are the roads I am talking about.

    ADV BOSMAN: So it would most probably be sort of a tertiary road? You’d have your main road, which is probably a tarred road and this is a – is it a dirt road along the border?

    MR NONDULA: It’s all dirt roads, Ma’am.

    ADV BOSMAN: And you didn’t plant anything on that road, but you planted it on the tertiary roads coming out of that road?

    MR NONDULA: We planted one on that main road, before we crossed.

    ADV BOSMAN: Okay.

    MR NONDULA: That was the last one that we planted, but we went inside and moving along these secondary roads leading towards the main road, that’s where we planted our landmines.

    ADV BOSMAN: Alright. Thank you. Thank you Mr Wagener.

    MR WAGENER: Mr Nondula, to that very last response of yours, I put it to you that you are lying. The mine that killed my client’s family, was not on a road as you have just explained and he will lead evidence to that effect and I will hand up photographs showing this road, so I put it to you, you are lying.

    MR NONDULA: You may say so, but …(end of tape) transpired what happened.

    MR WAGENER: Yes.

    MR NONDULA: Ja.

    MR WAGENER: You followed the gist of my submission that I put to you just now.

    MR NONDULA: I followed it properly.

    MR WAGENER: You understand what I’m saying?

    MR NONDULA: I do understand you.

    MR WAGENER: That we will present evidence showing that you’re lying on this aspect.

    MR NONDULA: As far as I am concerned at this stage, Sir, that is exactly what happened.

    MR WAGENER: Did you have to climb through fences to get to the area where you laid this mine?

    MR NONDULA: We did.

    MR WAGENER: Yes.

    MR NONDULA: Yes, we did.

    MR WAGENER: Game fence?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, that was during the day and what happened is at some point we were the first group in fact that went in. They were able to move out earlier and early in that morning, we heard an explosion and it was a normal response that we may be in trouble, so we had to shift our position during the course of the day, we had to climb some fences and that happened on our way back, that is where we put the mines on the road moving back to the border.

    MR WAGENER: I put it to you Mr Nondula, that the mine that killed my client’s family was put on a small game road, if I may call it that, on a farm totally enclosed by game fence with no access by the public, no access by the military. It was a private farm enclosed by game fence, what do you say about that?

    MR NONDULA: Sir, as I’ve said earlier, I rather should put it clearly, in my knowledge then I didn’t have a Mr De Nysschen that I knew, that I wanted to kill. All that happened is I undertook instructions, I took instructions as they were given to me and executed them to the fullest.

    MR WAGENER: In a question put to you by the Chairman, you said or you mentioned something about a map given to you. Can you please tell us what this map was all about?

    MR NONDULA: The map was actually the lay-out of how the roads from the border fence leading inside, how they looked like, just like a sketch.

    MR WAGENER: Right.

    MR NONDULA: That’s all.

    MR WAGENER: Did it show all the roads where the mines were to be laid?

    MR NONDULA: Let me …(indistinct) all the roads, it showed the area and the roads that you would expect to see when you come into the area and then where we could put them.

    MR WAGENER; Was it your instructions, in other words, that the mines should be laid on the roads as specified on this map?

    MR NONDULA: Exactly Sir.

    MR WAGENER: Those were your instructions?

    MR NONDULA: Yes, Sir.

    MR WAGENER: Did you follow those instructions?

    MR NONDULA: I did.

    MR WAGENER: Was it, in other words on this map, shown that you should plant the mines on Mr De Nysschen’s farm, which was totally enclosed by game fence, is that what you’re saying?

    MR NONDULA: No, not at all.

    CHAIRPERSON: I think what Mr Wagener’s wanting to know, Mr Nondula, this map, did it have the points marked on the map with a cross or something else, where the mines should be placed? Here you are with six mines. Here’s the map of the area that you must go, there are six points marked on the map. You must go to those points and lay the mines.

    MR NONDULA: Not necessarily and the maps, they showed only the lay-out of the area and the possible roads that the mines could be laid in.

    CHAIRPERSON: So it didn’t have the points where the mines …

    MR NONDULA: Not necessarily the points on the map, so the discretion at that stage had to be that of the Commander, the …(indistinct) Commander at that stage.

    MR WAGENER: You’ve mentioned it earlier that the policy or the general instructions of your movement, was that the mines should be laid on roads patrolled by the military, right?

    MR NONDULA: Exactly.

    MR WAGENER: So, when laying these mines, you ignored these instructions.

    MR NONDULA: How?

    MR WAGENER: Well, I’ve said that a number of times now. You laid a mine on a road where there’s never been a military vehicle before. How did that come about?

    MR NONDULA: I cannot at this stage testify to the fact that there was no military vehicle that ever passed that area or not, I cannot at this stage, because I did not do the reconnaissance myself and specifically the instructions that were given to us, those are the instructions that we followed.

    MR WAGENER: Your group of six, your two friends sitting next to you, were they part of that group?

    MR NONDULA: Not at all.

    MR WAGENER: Were they part of the other group?

    MR NONDULA: Yes.

    MR WAGENER: Now this Agrippa that you referred to, what is he real name?

    MR NONDULA: I don’t know his real name.

    MR WAGENER: I put it to you that you’re lying, you know his real name. What is his real name? Tell us.

    MR NONDULA: I do not know his real name, Sir.

    MR WAGENER: What happened to him?

    MR NONDULA: He passed away. He was shot.

    MR WAGENER: When?

    MR NONDULA: 1987, 86.

    MR WAGENER: May I ask your friend to stop helping you give evidence, or else I’m going to request that he sit in another chair.

    CHAIRPERSON: Please, when the witness is giving evidence, he mustn’t be assisted in any way.

    MR WAGENER: Mr Nondula, are you proud about what you did here?

    MR NONDULA: I am.

    MR WAGENER: As a soldier?

    MR NONDULA: As a soldier, yes I am.

    MR WAGENER: For killing innocent women and children, you’re proud of that?

    MR NONDULA: I am.

    MR WAGENER: Is that how you were trained by your organisation, to do acts like this, commit acts like this?

    MR NONDULA: No.

    MR WAGENER: So why are you proud?

    MR NONDULA: I’ve said earlier, in a situation of conflict, it is quite regrettable that innocent lives should be lost. That one is regrettable. I do regret that, but I cannot run away from the fact that I was acting out of a pure political conscience as a soldier, that one I cannot run away from.

    MR WAGENER: But you were acting outside your instructions.

    MR NONDULA: I was not.

    MR WAGENER: Well I will bring evidence showing that.

    21million social-welfare citizens; only 3,5m taxpayers

    21-million of the 51-million legal SA residents applied for social welfare benefits in 2013.  By 2014, its budget is expected to soar above R116-billion.   

    • SA only has 3,5million taxpayers who contribute more than 87% of all the taxes.

    This small but crucial group of taxpayers – business people, industrialists and agricultural businesses: are thus increasingly burdened with South Africa’s lavish social welfare budget.  Yet it’s precisely this small but crucial taxpayer group which is also placed under the heaviest political, socio-economic and criminal pressure. They face constant threats of nationalisation, and work under some of the most criminally-dangerous environments in the world: criminality which is encouraged by its own government.

    “Economic Freedom in our Lifetime” campaign: Political pressure growing on taxpaying business people:

    Buying votes for the ANC

    Political analysts often also view the social-welfare budget as a  ‘vote-buying’ device to keep the ruling African National Congress party in power, since 98% of all its recipients are blacks. And a major problem also remains: the high level of social-welfare fraud. 

    Rising taxes for a shrinking tax-payer base:

    In the 2010/2011 fiscal year the SA revenue service said it collected R674 billion in tax revenue link

    In the 2009 fiscal year the SA revenue service collected R154.1 billion in tax revenue mostly from 3,5 million taxpayers link

    On June 28 2013  Independent Newspapers reporter Michelle Jones michelle.jones@inl.co.za  writes from Cape Town that in the 2013/14 book year, more than 16-million of the 51-million South Africans were already living on social welfare. And, the ANC-regime also warned, that 2,1million children still have to be added to the budget.

    Who is going to pay for it?

    We insert this important note – namely the fact that the number of taxpayers far outnumber the social-welfare recipients. Solidarity Research Institute has found that by 2011/11, about 2,1million people already paid 92% of all the income tax, and 1,4million paid 82% of all the income tax. In the 2010/2011 fiscal year the SA revenue Service said it collected R674billion in tax revenue…

    TaxpayersSouthAfricaHowManyAreReallyContributingSolidarityInstituteJoubertMarch2012  It can be seen from the above 2010/2011 taxpayer comparisons, that the number of taxpayers who contributed the most taxes did not rise very much from 2009, when there still were 3.5 million assessed taxpayers (with a total taxable income of R632.6 billion), of that they were liable to pay R154.1 billion. Of them 28.8% were between 35 to 44 years old and 56.7% were male, 3.9% (136,124) of them had business income. Although the number of tax payers has increased from previous years, most taxpayers fell below the R120,000 taxable income threshold and so were not required to submit an income tax return and were therefore not included in the 3.5 million assessed taxpayers. In 2009, R154,1billion was paid to the SARS in income tax. The following year, they claimed they gathered R674 billion, basically from the same taxbase. “2010 Tax Statistics – Highlights”. SARS. 2010 p://www.sars.co.za/Tools/Documents/DocumentDownload.asp?FileID=66375 and http://www.mises.co.za/2012/03/how-many-taxpayers-are-there-really/

    __________________________________________________________________

    Since 2010, the number of people on social welfare clearly also far outnumber people with actual jobs in South Africa, the research by the South African Institute of Race Relations revealed.

    The SAIRR compared  employment data from the South African Social Security Agency Sassa with the number of people who receive social grants.  It was found that ever since 2010,  for every 100 people on social welfare just 90 people were employed.  The number of South Africans on social grants had increased by more than four times in the last decade, while the number of employed people had remained almost constant.

    • In 2009 there were were 3.5 million assessed taxpayers with a total taxable income of R632.6 billion of which they were liable to pay R154.1 billion. Of them 28.8% were between 35 to 44 years old and 56.7% were male, 3.9% (136,124) of them had business income. Although the number of tax payers has increased from previous years, most taxpayers fell below the R120,000 taxable income threshold and so were not required to submit an income tax return and were therefore not included in the 3.5 million assessed taxpayers
    • This shows a dramatic rise since 2001: for every 100 people who were receiving social grants, 330 people still had jobs in 2001.

    In 2014 the SA social grant expenses are expected to rise above R116 billion.

    Assa said in a press release: “The highest proportions will be spent on old-age pension and child support grant transfers, at 39 percent and 37 percent respectively. And that excludes an estimated 2.1million children who are eligible, but are not receiving grants. “If all eligible children received this grant, it would push social grant expenditure up by more than half a billion rand” read the release. http://www.iol.co.za/news/south-africa/more-people-on-welfare-than-working-1.1539021#.Uc6F9NhBPGg

    Value of individual social grants per month, 2013/14:

    Old-age pension:     R1,260

    War veterans:           R1,280

    Disability:                  R1,260

    Foster care:                 R800

    Care dependency:  R1,260

    Child support:             R290

    Grant-in-aid:                R290

    And this heavy expenditure on social welfare in a society where unemployment has doubled since  the end of apartheid in 1994, puts a heavy strain on the country’s tax base.

    How Many Taxpayers Are Contributing the Most?

    • Paul Joubert, researcher at the Solidarity Research Institute, wrote on March 27 2012: “About 3,2 million people were responsible for payment of 99% of all income tax in 2010/11. Approximately 2,1million people paid 92% of all income tax and 1,4million people paid 82% of all income tax.…  In fact, South Africa has only approximately 3,2million taxpayers and, strictly speaking, between only 2,1million tor 1,4 million pay truly significant amounts of tax. “Concerned citizens who claim that there are only five million taxpayers in South Africa are incorrect, but the real figures give even greater cause for concern.” http://www.mises.co.za/2012/03/how-many-taxpayers-are-there-really/

    SASSA acting head Lerato Moloi also warned: “South Africa’s tax base will not grow fast enough to keep supporting the millions of vulnerable individuals who rely on monthly cash transfers from the State.”Moloi also added, writing in the institute’s most recent Facts publication, that ‘while the state continued to push money into social services, particularly social grants, the budget deficit continued to grow. Moreover, “the money invested in free schooling also does not seem to be improving the quality of education, which would produce skilled employees and in turn, contribute positively to the economy,” she noted.

    Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan –  in his Budget speech earlier this year –  also said that ‘spending on social assistance would reach R120bn next year (…) but that it was not a substitute for job creation.”

    2010/2011 fiscal year:

    2009:

    • It can be seen from the 2010/2011 taxpayer comparisons, that the number of taxpayers who contribute the most taxes did not rise from 2009 – but this small group also paid dramatically higher taxes when they reached 2010. In 2009, there still were 3.5 million assessed taxpayers with a total taxable income of R632.6 billion, of that they were liable to pay R154.1 billion. Of them 28.8% were between 35 to 44 years old and 56.7% were male, 3.9% (136,124) of them had business income. Although the number of tax payers increased from previous years, most of these taxpayers fell below the R120,000 taxable income threshold and so were not required to submit an income tax return and were therefore not included in the 3.5 million assessed taxpayers for that year. “2010 Tax Statistics – Highlights”.
