Feb 1 2010 - The Dutch liberal daily Trouw – which was launched as an underground newspaper fighting against the WWII Nazi occupation of The Netherlands – wrote an amazing article today. Its journalist Gineke Mons actually reported the fact that ‘hundreds of young black males torture to death about 100 white farmers a year in South Africa.’
Their article, headlined “Afrikaner Boers left in the lurch’. describes that two farmers a week are murdered on average and that the Agri-SA farmers’ lobby has rung the alarm-bell, warning that the rural security plan – ( launched in 1999) -- doesn’t work.’
(My background:) Van Zyl (63) and his wife Retha (66), a much loved local teacher who had just retired, were ‘slaughtered like animals’ on their farm Poortjie in the Free State. Both were first attacked and cruelly mutilated with a meathook, and then shot dead with their own shotgun, said police. Netcare 911 spokesman Chris Botha described the scene at the time as “absolute carnage’ after paramedics arrived. It was the second farm attack in the Odendaalsrust district that week.
