Second cruel farm murder hits Randfontein: owner of Vleikop petting-zoo bird sanctuary, ‘tortured to death’…

The hidden body of a prominent Randfontein Boer who ran a petting- and bird-sanctuary on his smallholding, was found murdered on 4 June 2011 after an extensive search when the unnamed Boer went missing and four former employees also disappeared.

A massive search was launched after the owner of a Vleikop, Dennydale petting zoo and bird-sanctuary went missing on Friday, said police station commander Capt Appel Ernst source: Herald journalist Johan Meyer.

The local Afrikaner community already is up in arms about the wave of armed attacks against the working-class Afrikaner smallholders throughout the region over the past year – and protested at the local law-courts against the bail applications of two black men who were arrested for an earlier farm murder on March 3, when maize-farmer Koos van Rooyen, 63, was shot dead execution-style. Workers found the latest murdered farmer’s body about 1km from the road on Friday – hidden inside a crack inside a rocky outcrop. He was tightly trussed up by his hands and feet, a bag was pulled over his head, he was naked and reportedly grossly mutilated. Bystanders said the ‘method in which he was killed was extremely cruel’.

At the time of publication, the police pathology unit was unable to establish exactly how he had died, as they had not yet managed to extricate his body from the rock ledge. The local Herald newspaper did not have his name at that stage. According to well-informed sources, a former worker who had unsuccessfully sued the farmer, ‘swore revenge’ when the court turned down his application. This black man has now disappeared with three other friends from a nearby township and police are looking for all four black males.

    This is SO wrong. Thank you for covering this story, and helping to raise public awareness internationally of the Boer murders in Suid Afrika.

    The only way this problem can be properly dealt with is for government officials – from Zuma on down to recognize and establish laws – severe laws for those that commit these crimes against the minorities in Suid Afrika. By dismissing them solely as random acts by random gangs is a lie. These are targeted crimes against the remaining 6% white population of this country. According to the government itself, there are no more South African born men between the ages of 25 and 34 left in South Africa.

    The crimes against humanity must end. Fed by the fuel of Malema, this is a dark and sad chapter in true reform as envisioned by Mandela. Will the world finally notice when there are no more Boer or white families left?
