Elderly nudists survive Gauteng gunfight

2012-09-13 09:05

Pretoria - An elderly couple are lucky to be alive after robbers shot at them in their home at a nudist colony north of Pretoria.

Magda and Niek Hugo, both 75, were shot in the arm and hand, reported Beeld.

The men broke into the house at about 03:50 and started firing shots at the couple at the Sun Eden Naturist Resort.

Magda Hugo was apparently woken up by her parrot making a noise and after getting up, saw a man with a gun. She slammed the door shut and yelled at her husband to wake up.

The men then shot open the door and fired 11 shots at her and her husband.

“The men didn’t come to get bread, they came to shoot and kill the old people,” said Marius Mok of the local neighbourhood watch.

Niek Hugo shot back with a pistol and the robbers fled.

The couple’s son-in-law said apart from being in shock, both Hugos were doing well.

Mok said it was the fourth time in three months that there had been a break-in at Sun Eden.

    Sun Eden is one of the few local sanctuaries for nudists. It is sad to see people's experience being tainted like this

    Ag no man,75 year old nudists, now that picture is stuck in my mind!

  • jan.human - 2012-09-13 09:26

    The naked gun....

  • mofstok - 2012-09-13 09:30

    Lowlife scumbags. Hope thenext person they try and rob takes them out.

  • nico.lourens.14 - 2012-09-13 09:31

    Robbers? No man, at least call them attempted murderers!

  • desertratbkf - 2012-09-13 09:38

    Savagery prevails!

  • JevonMarshallJohnson - 2012-09-13 09:39

    Ja come into our houses and bite the bullet you criminals!!

  • flysouth - 2012-09-13 09:50

    That is usually all it takes - one guy or gal with a shooter - and the scum run away. But our so-called government thinks civilians should not have guns. "When seconds count, the cops are only minutes away!"

  • John Peter Steyn - 2012-09-13 09:58

    If you're old and White you should carry a firearm at all times. Black murderers, rapists and torturers/gardeners always target the elderly whites.

      desertratbkf - 2012-09-13 10:06

      Shows you what rotten cowards these filthy vermin are! Barbaric savages!

      Mbavhalelo - 2012-09-13 11:25

      John u have a demon of racism

      merven.halo - 2012-09-13 15:43

      Well Mbavhalelo, when is the last time (if ever) that you heard of whites attacking black elders in their homes?

  • carolyn.dewrance - 2012-09-13 10:01

    One of the big problems in these resorts as well as townhouses and old age homes, is that we are not allowed to have a dog which would be a good forewarning to intruders and a possible deterrent to the robbers. I really feel for these people, I know what it like to be attacked in my home by little b.bastards.

  • yangmanfrom.sawthafriqa - 2012-09-13 10:05

    I stay in a township called Newlands West,very peaceful,our only problems are partly break ins, wich is done by high school boys on sugars n ecstacy, so 2decided to break into my aunties bedroom on monday morning @4am, he escaped with her 560rands,reading glasses and some new clothes from the closset, when she woke up in the morning to her shock somebody had used some muti to make her fall tight asleep n jump over her and ransack her house, and by monday night, we got the link to the perpetrators, now a group of 9angry men took a quantum drove to these scumbags homes and forced their parents to release them,they were positively identified as only troublesome in the area,families know it but begged for their survival,aparentlu they just got released on free bail, now they are no more, eaten by flames of a petrolified car tyre! What a relief. Its barbaric to you to me its justice

      irene.buthelezi.1 - 2012-09-13 10:16

      The difference is, these were scumbags so well done. The attack on innocent people is barbaric.

      pieter0827006294 - 2012-09-13 10:28

      I don't know about that though, people still have the right to a fair trial. What if they were "wrongly accused". What if they didn't do it?

      yangmanfrom.sawthafriqa - 2012-09-13 10:31

      I see two trolls thumbing me down

      yangmanfrom.sawthafriqa - 2012-09-13 10:36

      Unfortunacle the 1st time they got caught they confessed n promised to stop, 2ndly arrested enough evidence but still released on free bail, no space to keep them in a cell, now got caught confessed n punished, and you feel sorry? Can't help you sory

      arno.botha.71 - 2012-09-13 10:39

      Are you saying they set them on fire? You have to admit, setting someone alight for R560, glasses and some clothes is quite barbaric to say the least.

      charnelle.bester - 2012-09-13 11:01

      Take care of these fools the african way! The whole country is sick of the crime. Just this morning I witnessed mob justice when a young black lady got mugged, street workers took this thug down. Doubt very much they would do it again. Fair trail means murder someone and get set free in 4 months. No such thing as a justice system.

      pieter0827006294 - 2012-09-13 11:31

      No you guys/girls, condoning it is just wrong. Setting someone on fire, whether guilty or not is not on.

      merven.halo - 2012-09-13 15:45

      Well arno.botha.71 - I can promise you the robbers never did it again ;)

      helga.venter.1 - 2012-11-02 08:21

      No. Just - no. How we react to savagery is what sets us apart from the savages. Revenge feels good but is a crummy foundation to build your entire justice system on. Just because our justice system is a broken joke does not mean this is the only other way. Once vigilantism becomes the accepted norm, it is a quick and easy step to usurp the short and emotion driven "process" to murder innocents who simply do not fit in with society. The single old lady, the teenager with tourettes, the lesbian girl. Easy also for those with power in a community to whip up hatred and unleash it for personal gain. Think carefully of long term consequences, all of you who think this way is so much better.

    Those are shot shells. Good for shooting back, otherwise they would be dead. Pity he didn't nail the AK savages.

    This just shows if it's not your time to die no matter what you go through you will still survive... If you are looking to try something new, the clothes free lifestyle could be your answer to meeting new nudist friends. google "naturistmingle" it is the best choice for you! It offers a friendly and confidential environment for nudists to look for friendships, relationships, and resources concerning the nudist lifestyle.

      marc.ross.965 - 2012-09-13 10:24

      Hi Mindy If that is your real photo I am keen to get into this nudism thing.

      pieter0827006294 - 2012-09-13 10:47


      pjbadenhorst - 2012-09-13 11:06

      I think hijacking a tragedy like this to promote your dating site is sick!

      merven.halo - 2012-09-13 15:47

      Mindynewtonudism is probably a guy, nudists are never as sexy as the chick in the pic.

      romulus.zottington - 2012-11-02 08:59

      hahaha this naturalist website is funny as fark! - it's like a porno facebook but marketed under the guise of natural living and happy thoughts.

  • walter.lebza - 2012-09-13 10:27

    His tool was buisy swinging around, while shooting like chuck norris at the assilants.

      shooshyu.tu - 2012-09-13 15:18

      @yangmanfrom.sawthafriqa who & what comment are you referring to?

  • petrus.ngwenya.3 - 2012-09-13 10:38

    And the local neighbourhood watch... I bet they keep their eyes open in that area.

      pieter0827006294 - 2012-09-13 10:48

      ...and watch surveillance footage all night long

  • cheslyn.francis - 2012-09-13 11:07

    Naked truth!

  • dnxumalo2 - 2012-09-13 11:29

  • givenvon.baloyi - 2012-09-13 18:09

    zimbambwens n mozambambicans r the ones who r responsible for this types of crimes.beleave it or not i knw what i'm talking about.

  • Spittalsue - 2012-09-15 17:40

    Sun Eden, being for elderly nudists, should have a comprehensive security system to protect the elderly; employ white security guards; install security alarms, an electric fence; cameras and anything else that will protect the residents. Is there no unemployment among the white people of South Africa? or are the unemployed whites too lazy or too proud to do the work normally done by the black people??

  • brandy.hanks.92 - 2012-09-18 05:33
