18 People (which I know of) have been killed in the first 14 days of February!

11 of these murders happened on farms and smallholdings. During the first 14 days of February, there were 32 farm attacks.

On this day, people the world over will hear the love for HATE that prevailed in South Africa when a herd of barbarians destroyed a whole family on a farm. During January, eight people were killed on farms and this brings the farm murders up to 19 during a 45-day period, or one murder every 56 hours, compared to an average of one in every 130 hours over the past few years.

Dozens of people were sexually attacked, injured, tortured, or mutilated and one woman raped during one of the farm attacks over the past two weeks.

In Pietersburg, a young boy found the mutilated body of his mother in their home when he came home from school. Then one our own people had to defend themselves in court after he shot and killed an “intruder” who entered his home during the middle of the night. It was not a visitor wanting a cup of tea.

Trevor Rees (79) died after his attackers tortured him two days and threw “bleach” down his throat. According to the emergency personnel who rushed him to the hospital, it was one of the most brutal attacks they had ever witnessed.

I know I have nothing to change or improve by writing down the names of the murdered people, I think it’s necessary for our people to see … and not to forget … advice or answers that I do not have. I can only plead that everyone will be more aware for their own safety. It is heartbreaking.
