The true facts about land and farm murders in South Africa

The American president's tweet about the land grabs in South Africa, expressed a justified concern about events unfolding. Those who doubt the veracity of Donald Trump's tweet should familiarize themselves with the facts about farm murders and the threat to property rights in the country.

    The number of farm murders in South Africa have not decreased as some sources claim. Agricultural Union TAU SA’s farm killings statistics – which contain verifiable victim names, farms and dates of murder – confirmed last year that killings were now at the highest level in 13 years.

    A well-grounded analysis by PoliticsWeb of official SAPS statistics further indicates that claims by AgriSA pretending that farm murders were decreasing, showed serious weaknesses.

    The farm murder rate may seem lower than 20 years ago, but the number of commercial farmers has almost halved over the same period, actually signalling an increase in the rate.

    A white South African farmer’s chance of being killed is estimated to be 3.2 times higher than the country’s already excessively high average murder rate. It only confirms that farm murders are a serious crisis facing the country that needs urgent attention. The horrific torture that often accompanies farm murders also raises serious questions.

    Farm murders remain a serious violation of human rights that should be condemned by governments worldwide especially by those who claim to believe in the protection of human rights.

    ANC supporters who argue that fears about the violation of property rights and expropriation without compensation in South Africa are exaggerated, ignore the fact that the South African president, the country’s government leaders and the ruling ANC have made rulings on numerous occasions that confirm that they are committed to violating property rights.

    There are numerous statements made by officials confirming the ANC’s vision:

    • In December 2017, the ANC officially decided at its congress to accept expropriation without compensation as party policy.
    • On March 27 this year, South African newspaper City Press reported that Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, Minister of Rural Development and Land Reform, said the government would not wait until the Constitution was amended and that her department had prepared a test case for a land grab. She has also indicated that her department has already identified the land they want to expropriate, but that she would not make public the list of farms because they would warn the owners concerned to prepare for legal action. The minister has never contested the content of this article and it is therefore accepted as the correct version of what she said.
    • On 31 July 2018, pres. Cyril Ramaphosa announced a late night statement on television that he and the ANC had decided to continue to amend the South African Constitution to allow expulsion without compensation. This announcement was the tenth time that Ramaphosa had expressed his support for expropriation without compensation in public. This announcement was made while the South African parliament’s open-ended consultation process had not yet been completed.
    • On August 5 this year another article appeared in City Press indicating that the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform had identified 139 farms to be expropriated without compensation. Zizi Kodwa, member of the ANC’s national executive committee, was cited extensively in this article. The article’s content has not been contested by the ANC. On the same day, the weekly Sunday Times reported that the ANC, according to its party’s spokesman, Ronald Lamola, had identified 139 farms that would serve as “expropriation targets”.

    The ANC and government expropriation plans have a clear racial motive: David Mabuza, South Africa’s deputy president, said in Pretoria on April 6 this year that white farmers should volunteer to hand over their land in order to prevent a violent takeover.

    President Ramaphosa also declared publicly that land grab was necessary  for “his people”, meaning blacks only. Thus, the conclusion can be drawn that the president does not regard all people as part of his people. Zweli Mkhize, Minister for Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, ruled on July 7 this year that no black person or black group’s property will be confiscated, which gave a further racial dimension to government’s expropriation plans.

    The proposed expropriation process of a farm called Akkerland Boerdery in Limpopo, has begun with the owner being told to vacate his farm within seven days, as FWM reported.

    The government only offered the owner 10 percent of the land’s market value as compensation. Should this expropriation pass, it will in itself already constitute a serious violation of property rights.

    The ANC uses false statistics on land ownership patterns in South Africa to try to justify its violation of property rights, since it is not true that white farmers own 72 percent of land in South Africa.

    According to PoliticsWeb’s analysis, the figure is about 22 percent of South Africa’s total surface area.

    Some extracts from the book Kill the Boer by Ernst Roets, have shed light on the involvement of the black Marxist and EFF leader, Julius Malema in the killings of white farmers.

    In April 2010, Leon Koekemoer (39) was attacked on his farm near Cullinan in Gauteng [Chapter 15]. The attackers screamed the words: ‘Die, white man! Viva Malema!’ as they were attacking Koekemoer.

    In 2017, a copy of a conversation between a National Intelligence Agency (NIA) agent and a so-called general of the notorious prison gang, the 28s, was broadcast on the South African cable TV programme Carte Blanche.

    The gang leader had spent more than 20 years in prison for farm murders and was released in December this year. On the audio clip, he makes the following statement: “They also told me while I was on the inside that when I get out, I have to contact Julius Malema, the guy from Limpopo, from the EFF.

    “Because he was also here now in September. Julius Malema was in Pretoria, in New Lock [name of the prison]. When he got there, at New Lock, he asked, he said, when you gangs want a golden team, when you want a team, come and see me in Limpopo. I can give you a team.

    “What I will give you is a balaclava, a gun, and cash. He says straight that he is against the farmers, Julius Malema. He says you only have to murder a few farmers, on farms.”

    Malema was invited to respond, but his spokesperson Mbuyiseni Ndlozi only replied that he was unable to respond to these allegations, due to his busy schedule. The story soon faded away and there was no media outcry about his chilling words.

      What about a modern day deliverance , from an impending genocide , upon The Poor Whites , in the south african poverty camps , whom are not allowed , or whom cannot evacuate – ( for whatever reason ) ? If you know real history , then you understand , it is they – The White Destitute , who are The Real Boers . On the other hand ; the metro elite & propertied farmers – are the jew / dutch / english / afrikaners , that have assumed the identity from , and have always oppressed , The True Germanic Boers . Yes Sir , there is a way out for them – The Despised Poor , but it’s not the “ rapture “ .

      The South African Boers are mostly a swiss / germanic peoples – with some admixture from french , dutch and english . They were the Ana – Baptist refugees , from The European Continental Religious and Secular Wars , of the 16th and 17th and 18th centuries . They were caught in between , and maltreated & persecuted , by both the protestant / reform & catholic churches , and also abused , by those associated nation state civil governments . When in Germany and Denmark , they were given the derogatory appellation of “ Boors “ , because they were considered low class , poor and uncouth . ( In America , Benjamin Franklin disparagingly referred to their near kindred , [ The Pennsylvania Dutch German “ Christian Brethren “ ] , as “ Palatine Boors “ . It was for the same reasons , that the Scotch-Irish were named : Redneck , Hillbilly , Country Good Old Boy , Hayseed , Rube , Yokel , Bumpkin , Rustic , Rural , Clodhopper & Farmer – and we embrace those names . ) The Boors took the opportunity to escape from , the hostile to them – Europe , by removing to South Africa ( also to North America and other places ) , under the auspices of , The Dutch East India Company ( VOC ) . Their prime motive was , The True Christian Liberty of Conscience , and not economic adventurism . These real religious and political refugees , had a whole different outlook and mindset , from the other opportunistic emigrants , and they became known as , The Pious Border Farmers and Trekking Boers ; Migrants of The Expanding Settlement Frontiers . — See the article : ( The Afrikaner Domination of the Boers : How it was Constructed ) , by David Christie , dated : 11 April 2014 , AFRIKAANSENUUS .

      Through all the vicissitudes and attacks , that they have suffered – from traitors & open & secret enemies , they have lost their ancient identity , and are to a large degree alienated , from the true knowledge of , and right relationship with , THE LORD JESUS CHRIST – THE SAVIOR AND REDEEMER . Although diminished , they are still with “ dear ” standing – to GOD , and He will call them back , and will gather them firmly , and bless them abundantly , and rescue them from the advancing evil extermination . Could this explanation and assertion be correct ?

      The White Man is the race of Abraham , Isaac , and Jacob . ( The True Hebrews : actual and factual , by evidence and proof . ) They are found in THE HOLY BIBLE ( kjv ) . Because of wickedness and rebellion and revolution , GOD broke most of them off and away , from The Ancient Kingdom of The House of Israel . JEHOVAH did this , by allowing them to be conquered and taken as slaves , by pagans and heathen – ( Within their history , The Caucasians also became polytheistic hedonists ) . Later , THE LORD GOD opened several doors of their captivity , and let them escape , and made them move north & west , in many pushes and waves . These Lost Ten Tribes forfeited their identity , by their unbelief & disobedience , through the generations and centuries of ; wars and raids and migrations and wanderings and explorations . These forgotten Clans , became The Gentile ( White ) European Nations , spreading across the geocentric globe earth . As a racial group , they are known as The Anglo / Saxons . And , although they do not know it , the providence of THE LORD JESUS CHRIST , has marked them with a special token-sign , pointing to their future minority recovery , and full reinstatement . Anglo / Saxons : ( Anglo = GOD’S Servant , Saint or Angel , GOD’S Son ) / ( Saxons = The Son’s of Isaac , The Isaac’s Sons , The Sac’s Sons = The Saxons ) -> ( The Son’s of Jacob , by being The Grandson’s of Isaac , are The Anglo / Saxons . ) -> ( The English Group + The German Group = The United Birthright and Scepter ) . The day is approaching , when a remnant of The Son’s of Jacob ( The Grandson’s of Isaac = The Anglos & The Saxons ) will return , and be converted and gathered together and joined , by THE GIFT AND POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST . Never again brother against brother wars for them . ( The reunion will be – The Grand Union of Jacob , presaged by The Union Jack Ensign ) . This Small Portion ( spread over the sphere earth ) , being The Election , and belonging to JESUS MESSIAH , will be delivered by a mighty & miraculous , intervention & intercession . Their corporeal rescue , is the deliverance from the modern day absolute bondage & captivity , by tyranny of the archfiend anti-christ ascendency , that is now being spearheaded by marauding “ flying monkeys “ , and a prospective white genocide in South Africa . The Authentic Reclamation , will be practically unforeseen and unexpected , by everyone else who does not veritably know , or who are not much interested in , THE REAL JESUS . ( The event will only become widely known , for both the fact and mis-explanation , in the aftermath . ) All of Mankind ( both kindred & foreigner / stranger ) , can by faith ( if they will ) repent and reform and separate , to become GOD’S Spiritually Adopted Sons or Daughters ( Pilgrims ) ; those that are Born Again , they who love JESUS , them that are in His Grace – Mercy – Favor – Blessings Full On . Then we are His Eligible and His Qualified and His Chosen , to receive this tremendous beneficial , while living on earth . It will be greater than The Exodus Out of Egypt , that was in the times of old , while under the leadership of Moses . This is the mortal ( while in the flesh ) and only earthly escape , out of The Great Temptation and The Great Tribulation ( test & trial ) , that is coming as GOD’S anger and judgement , upon the whole world . Let the loud – clear – pure – ringing , of The Real and True Christian Liberty Bell , peal throughout all THE LORD’S SANCTUARIES . It is the beginning of GOD’S PARADISIACAL KINGDOM COME TO EARTH ; in His multifold and distinct , provided and guarded , companies and camps – trekking and transiting , to His refuges and retreats . Who will survive and who will demise ? Choose the only genuine and best hope , or decide for the hard way , of soul danger and torment and martyrdom ( by the forced mark of the beast ) . Watch and Pray . There is a sign to be given , for the moment of reckoning and decision , to catch the only once given , small window of opportunity . After being converted , search THE HOLY BIBLE ( kjv ) , by THE GIFT AND POWER OF THE HOLY GHOST . Find the sign , to obey the command of THE SAVIOR AND REDEEMER – JESUS CHRIST . Do not be left behind , to weep in regret . In the meantime , we need to resist lawfully – with all our abilities , the advancements of evil , while awaiting expectant and hopeful – The Days of Refreshment .

      —- Self Defense is an obligation to GOD , ( 1 Timothy 5 : 8 ) , THB , kjv . Beware of imposters & deceivers & secret enemies ( Revelation 3 : 8 – 12 ) . The leading adversaries against THE LORD JESUS CHRIST , know “ much “ about The Great Escape . Their blood vendetta & hatred , prompt them to the “ dark arts “ , and the exhaustive “ expert “ study , of the stolen Sacred Scripture – THE HOLY BIBLE ( kjv ) , ( even though it pertains to them – only for their condemnation ) . They are blinded to think , that they can anticipate and thwart , The Archangel Michael ( Daniel 12 : 1 ) and “ The Holy Companions “ – ( Angels , Captains , Disciples ) . Little do they really understand . They are only stumps & rocks in the field , of GOD’S great world drama , wherein He works to save ( plant and husband and harvest ) the souls of men and women , one at a time . The wheat / flour mill of THE LORD , grinds slowly but grinds very fine . No one yet knows , what we shall be made to become , but we trust it will be wonderful . Everyone will receive their fair chance , and just opportunity , even though it may not seem so , at the moment . For The Righteous – during the 1000 year millennium ; all wounds will be healed , and all injustices will be made right , and all babies that were aborted – will have an upbringing by loving parents . Come out of wickedness . Separate from uncleanliness . Look forward to The Marvelous Work and Wonder , of GOD’S Deliverance , and the impending presence of JESUS – THE GOOD SHEPHERD , coming in the sky , at the end of the tribulation , and then is the inauguration , of the new era .
