South African Police Minister agrees to release farm murder stats

The South African Minister of Police, Bheki Cele, and the Police Commissioner, General Khehla Sitole, indicated that they would once again release statistics on farm attacks and murders after eleven years of silence on the burning issue as international pressure builds.

    The last time that these statistics were disclosed was in 2007. The small white party in parliament, the Freedom Front Plus, however, continued to request the figures by way of parliamentary questions and some answers have finally been provided.

    In essence, the party asked for the number of attacks and murders that took place in every province since 2012 to be disclosed. From the answer it can be gleaned that attacks increased (561 attacks) over the last year (2017/18).

    The figures show that over the last six years since 2012, there were 3059 attacks altogether. On average, that is 509,8 per year in which 338 people were killed. On average, that is 56,3 per year.

    During this time, most of the attacks took place in the North West province (722 attacks) and Gauteng (644 attacks). The province with the highest number of murders during this time, however, is Gauteng (69 murders) and then the North West and KwaZulu-Natal (61 murders each).

    Compared to other available sources, these latest figures more or less tally. These explosive statistics were swept under the rug under the administration of former President Jacob Zuma.

    Without the necessary statistics on crime, one is left groping in the dark and then it is not possible to take meaningful action and implement preventative measures.

    News about farm murders has reached the international community, particularly the cruelty of murders in South Africa against whites and delegations will meet with representatives in the European Parliament and various governments to inform them of developments.

    The United Nations (UN) through the FF Plus’s UNPO membership, will also be informed about the statistics on farm attacks and murders newly released by the government and will perhaps ironically carry more weight than those compiled by white institutions.

    A petition against the proposed land confiscation, aimed at European Union President Jean-Claude Juncker, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May, has gained tens of thousands of signatures already.

    Australian Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton said that the country is considering fast-tracking visas for white South African farmers.

    But Marxists argue that “the land question can only be solved through class struggle and the fight for socialism. In 1930 Joseph Stalin announced that the policy of Collectivised Farms would be instituted across the Soviet Union, essentially introducing a policy of expropriation without compensation. By 1940, 96.9 percent of Soviet agriculture was “collectivised” and result was an unprecedented famine.

    “What is needed is to introduce a democratically planned socialist economy,” South African Marxist Ben Morken said. Similar policies were implemented in virtually every communist-inspired country. This includes Zimbabwe under Robert Mugabe and the country imploded with every metric going backward. Today, 95 percent of Zimbabweans are unemployed.

    President Cyril Ramaphosa, SA Gov.

    South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa may be on a collision course with his Minister of Police however, since Ramaphosa has been outspoken about the need for more aggressive socialist agricultural policies, which the ANC paradoxically refers to as “radical economic transformation”.

    Available data indicates that Ramaphosa’s land claim is patently false: Urbanisation is occurring at a rapid pace; 93 percent of those who have taken the effort to institute land claims have indicated that they do not actually want land and would rather have money.

    Only around 1 percent of South Africans believe that land reform would improve their lives.

    Interestingly, international research on various aspects of socialism conducted by Ipsos in 28 countries worldwide, shows that South Africans strongly support merit and the free market and that they are of the opinion that socialism, as advocated by all the major parties in the country, including the ANC, DA and the EFF, is oppressive.

    Ipsos conducted the research to commemorate the birth of Karl Marx two hundred years ago on the 5th of May 1818.

    Merit and unrestricted markets have proven themselves in that both bring about development, progress and job creation. That also expands the tax base, which makes it possible for a state to offer public health care.

    A massive 83 percent of South Africans agree with the statement that “free market competition brings out the best in people” in comparison to the average of other countries, which was only 66 percent.

    All in all, 59 percent of South Africans agree that socialism is a “system of political oppression, mass surveillance and state terror” in comparison to the worldwide average of 48 percent.

      It’s almost as if this is being done for no other reason than to murder and deprive whites, simply because they are white.

      S. African farmers need to leave, leave right now. Don’t wait. Pack up and come to America or Australia. You can be fat and sassy while watching South AFricans starve. If you leave they will starve. If you stay you will die and they will starve anyway. At least you can enjoy watching it from afar. Leave, and burn the farm down as you watch it in the rear view mirror.

    Violence, retribution and the South African justice system

    PretoriaHowever one looks at it, the country has lost its way: the South African police are not in a position to handle crime effectively, declared the ANC’s own chair of the parliamentary portfolio committee on police Ms. Tina Joemat-Pettersson in November 2020. For four years in a row, the police service could only garner a qualified audit because the department did not fulfil the requirements set out for a clean audit. Reasons such as unauthorised spending and the poor quality of the department’s financial affairs were given for this failure.

For France the message was also very clear: Macron declared that "France has no fixed identity".
