Two of the attackers were former black police officers. More and more assault firearms, such as R1 guns, are being used in farm attacks against whites. A source told FWM that an RI assault rifle, 15 rounds as well as a Norinco pistol with nine bullets were recovered in the vehicle in which the five black attackers had been travelling.
It appears that there has been an increase in farm attacks in the run-up to and after the election. “The ruling ANC party and certain other parties’ reckless statements regarding land and expropriation are therefore extremely irresponsible,”said Jan van Niekerk, member of the Freedom Front Plus.
“There is no political will to protect and assist farmers and their workers. Cheap election rhetoric has aggravated the problem,” he added.
The FF Plus will continue to put pressure on the executive to declare farm attacks a priority crime, as it will force the various institutions responsible for the safety of the white agricultural community to allocate specific resources to the scourge, Van Niekerk said.
This week the mutilated body a 66-year-old white farmer was found next to his tractor on his farm near Piet Retief in Mpumalanga after a relative reported him missing. The farmer was struck repeatedly with a sharp object.
Moolman Meyer was last seen alive on his farm Waaihoek on Saturday. “It also appears that his firearm is missing from his house as well as his two employees believed to be from Eswatini (Swaziland) whose identities are yet to be established,” a police spokesperson said.
Netwerk24 reported earlier that the victim had severe cuts to his head, body and arms inflicted by a machete.

Paul RouxIt is clear that a slow war is being fought against South Africa's white farmers and this slow racial war is increasingly also being taken to towns and cities.
