Krugersdorp families feel unsafe amidst waves of cruelties

Eric Nkuna and Fortunato Simbine -who had been attacking and terrorising Afrikaner families on Krugersdorp’s smallholdingings throughout 2009– yesterday were found guilty of four charges of housebreaking and armed robbery: Eric Nkuna also was found guilty of executing Afrikaner family-man Juan van Eeden, 28, in Noordheuwel on 10 October 2009. The court heard that these two armed black males had waged a reign of terror throughout the Krugersdorp smallholdings area – and which included very cruel, long-term psychological and physical torture of their Afrikaner victims.

Ügen Vos writes in Beeld from KRUGERSDORP regional court that Eric Nkuna and Foftunato, the two black attackers who had terrorised Afrikaner families at the West Rand throughout 2009, were found guilty on four charges of housebreaking and armed robbery: and that Nkuna also found guilty of murdering a local Afrikaner resident due to ‘insufficient evidence’. Nkuna and Simbine were infamous for their campaign of terror in 2009 during which they often tortured their Afrikaner victims psychologically and physically: the mother of two little girls testifying that the men had asked her children ‘who they wanted shot dead first, ‘mommy or daddy’?

Magistrate Keith Page found Nkuna guilty of murdering Juan van Eeden (28) op 10 Oktober 2009 in Noordheuwel, Krugersdorp. Page ruled however that there was insufficient evidence to link Simbine to the murder. State prosecutor Micky Thesner emphasized the evidence before the court that the residents ‘often were tortured psychologically and physically’.For instance, during their attack on Mrs Marie Cloete and her two- and seven-year-old daughters, and Mr Harry Kok on 25 February 2009 the Afrikaners were held at gunpoint for hours.Mrs Cloete testified that Nkuna and Simbine smoked a marijuana-cigarette during the family’s ordeal: and asked her children ‘which one of your parents should be shot dead first’. They apparently surmised that Mr Kok was the father of the children, she testified. Nkuna also threatened to rape Mrs Cloete in her youngstest child’s bedroom. The attackers drove off in her Ford Tracer.

Juan van Eeden was executed with a single-shot through his neck:

Mr Juan van Eeden ‘s murder also was horrific, the court heard. Mr Van Eeden tried to lock himself in the main-bedroom of his home on 10 October 2009 while Nkuna broke in at 2am. Nkuna broke down the bedroom door and ‘coldbloodedly shot dead Van Eeden with a neckshot’, the court heard.

Finger-print on their .45 pistol was linked to cartridge at Van Eeden’s murder scene:

On 22 Oct 2009 the two terrorists had also attacked Mr Johan Potgieter in Noordheuwel after poisoning his staffordshire-terriër. However this was a crucial turning point for the police in tracing the two men: Potgieter was able to push an emergency service’s button while the two armed black males stormed into his bedroom. In their haste to flee before the armed response unit would arrive, they lost a .45 pistol – with Simbine’s finger-print on it. And this .45 pistol provided the positive proof, the vital link that the cartridge which was used to murder Mr Van Eeden, was directly linked to Simbine. On 23 October the gang attacked Mrs Johanna Paulina Erasmus at her home in Noordheuwel. They tried to strangle her, then beat her unconscious with a spanner and fled with a Mercedes Benz 230 which was traced by her tracking company and the West Rand Reaction Unit – and both men were arrested.

The terror campaign against the Afrikaners of Krugersdorp continues unabated: even Freedom Front Plus MEC Jaco Mulder feels unsafe inside his own Noordheuwel home…

However while these two men have been arrested and tried, the campaign of terror against the Afrikaners around Krugersdorp continues unabated. On Nov 1 2011, Krugersdorp Noordheuwel families suffered a wave of senseless knifing attacks: with one girl surviving with horrid mutilations carved into her body by two black men in a frenzied attack. The 22-year-old girl lives right across the home of the Gauteng premier Mrs Nombula Mokonyane…

The girl was attacked at 11am on Nov 1 2011 in her home in Noordheuwel Krugersdorp. She was deliberately mutilated by the two black males with knives who stabbed her repeatedly in the frenzied attack She fought back courageously and managed to send an SOS to her mother – which caused her attackers to flee. Nothing was robbed.

This incident was only one of a series of senseless knifing attacks targetting Afrikaners throughout this region. The victim’s identity is not released for security reasons, the police said.

Freedom Front Plus member Jaco Mulder said after the incident he no longer feels safe with his family in their Noordheuwel home. Mulder, who is a MEC- member of the Gauteng provincial security committee, said that there are spates of attacks and house-breakings targetting people in their homes. “The criminals clearly do not fear any of the law-enforcement agencies in South Africa. Criminals move around freely in suburbs, and use exquisitively-detailed intelligence and information about the daily habits of their identified victims. The SAPS and the neighbourhood-watch initiatives are falling down flat when it comes to crime-intelligence.’

This is the way the above terror-campaign against the Afrikaner families of Krugersdorp was reported by the English-language SA news media: they very carefully avoided any mention of the fact that all the families targetted were Afrikaners… on smallholdings: Guilty verdict for two Mozambicans – February 7 2012 at 09:45am Two Mozambican criminals who terrorised homes in Krugersdorp, west of Joburg, in 2009 have been convicted on four counts of robbery with aggravating circumstances, according to a report on Tuesday. Eric Nkuna and Fortunato Simbine targeted townhouse complexes in the Noordheuwel area, frequently inflicting psychological and physical torture on their victims.Nkuna was also found to have murdered Juan van Eeden, 28, at his townhouse complex, but there was insufficient evidence to link Simbine to the crime, Beeld newspaper reported.In one incident, a family was held captive for hours, the mother was threatened with rape and the two daughters, who were seven and two respectively, were asked which of their parents should be shot first.In a separate case, Simbine left a fingerprint at the scene of the crime after holding up Johan Potgieter at his home.In another incident, a woman was choked, then beaten with a monkey wrench, before they stole her car.Sentencing will take place later this week.

In other news today, the housekeeper of Cheetahs logistics manager Sakkie Wessels was arrested for suspected link to a killer-gang one of whose members, the now arrested Moses Malatji, has been charged for torturing to death the Afrikaner artist-dj Paul van Vuuren of Phalaborwa. Staansaam self-defence unit of Phalaborwa reports that the housekeeper of Cheetahs team logistics manager Sakkie Wessels was arrested for suspected links with a violent crime gang. The gang is suspected of recently breaking into his farm-house. The gang is also suspected of spreading a reign of terror across the Free State and countrywide. One of its members (picture) who was recently arrested is suspected of the gruesome torture-murder of artist Paul van Vuuren, 55, of Phalaborwa.

Percy Van Rooijen, Wes Geldenhuys warn urgently that many farm-attacks targetting Afrikaner smallholders are expected at the Brits smallholdings
Feb 7 2012 – 11:00 am: Wes Geldenhuys – Urgent: all farmers on smallholdings and farms in the Brits region – Hekpoort, Wolhuters Kop, Sandfontein, DeKroon, Sonop settlement and surrounding areas, be alert: A trucker reported that the blacks are going ‘all-out’ in those NW areas to murder and plunder us. Farm-attacks will be inevitable with organised groups of five to six each from about 7pm at night especially when you are watching TV inside. They figure you are drunk during those times on weekends. This trucker does not want to report this to the police because he’s scared they will kill him.”

Mr Geldenhuys who issued the warning, lives in Amanzimti and is in the security business there – escorting for small companies. Just after 5am am on Tuesday Feb 7 2012 he writes me that ‘when he drove up to his business, a trucker-trailer was in his parking area where the crew had spent the night. I woke them up, asking them to move. ‘The driver, I estimate aged about 50, got in behind the wheel, and I ask him where’s he’s from, since we’re speaking with each other in Afrikaans and he says from Brits. I ask him about the way things are going there, and he tells me that he’s talked to these blacks in that area and what they were planning.”
