    Just another crime... pfff... RIP and now 2 kids are facing a ever bleaker future with no mother and a country that is hostile towards them. Really sad.

      @Alicia I hope they find and kill them as well! Because if they just put them in jail,and Zuma has his way(which he will), they will just be getting out earlier thanks to his Freedom day crap.

      The same old comments with every farm-murder. Nothing will come of it. Nobody cares. Definitely not the plundering ANC. let's just ask 'who is next?' You? Me? Who is next?

      Jacobus - 2012-05-02 13:06

      Just another farm murder. No big deal. Now, poaching rhino, THATS major news. Get in the army, and the game wardens, the sniper rifles and the telescopes... For we cannot let the rhinos die. We can sell licenses to kill rhino and export the horns legally for R1500, but we cannot kill a rhino without that piece of paper... Now murdering a farmer... Not really any reason to call in the cavalry, is there. Is this poor woman number 251 for this year alone? 50 More than the killed rhino. Yet we have interpol working internationally on saving the rhino. Forget about the white ou.

      Omo - 2012-05-02 13:20

      It is really sad indeed. As a foreigner living SA for a few years now ,i can not deny that i have seen some gruesome pictures of farm murders that will continue to hunt my dreams for ever. I do not know why the people do this but i do not think it is because they are black because if you look at the rest of the continent such thing do not occur. White and blacks in west Africa ,North Africa and east Africa live in work together ,inter marry and live in peace. It is only in SA that these racial crimes are happening. The Government needs to protect the farmers and the farmer needs to form a union with the locals so that the locals can snitch on who ever is perpetuating this sick crimes amongst them.

      @ are one very liberal white person. As a black person, I know how these black people think when it comes to these horrible crimes they commit. They murder farmers because they hate them because certain government leaders sing and chant hate crimes against white people. They do it because they are looked up to in their communities and gangs. Have you not heard of Uhuru....look it up!!! Unfortunately South Africa is in a sad state of affairs. I feel very sorry for the farmers and all the people that get murdered in South Africa. The government has failed on so many levels, all I can say to you Shannon is that when crime comes knocking on your door, you better hope to god that they dont murder you as these thugs dont think twice to kill anyone...Its like a light switch to them to pull a trigger...South African white people are too complacent to do anything constructive about this. You all moan and groan about problems in SA and the crimes which I agree is shocking, but you never protest or do anything constructive to stop this madness.South Africans are too materialistic and self centered to start a revolution for a positive future!!

      johand.dutoit - 2012-05-02 16:55

      marnalouw- Kill them yes,but very slowly! Tie them to an anthill & smear them with honey! Supply enough water that will last for a day or two but let it drip 10cm from them into the thirsty ground! Let them suffer & plead for mercy till they die!

      johand.dutoit - 2012-05-02 17:01

      Xavier7034- Easy answer,they are not sane! I could have said more but I'll rather refrain from saying anything else!

      rowen.loretz - 2012-05-02 19:54

      soon all the farmers will be killed or gone. We better start stockpiling food, cause there ain't gonna be any soon, or it will cost like R100 for a bowl of iwisa pap. This cANCer is too blame. They don't even say anything anymore, like it is part of their plan to get rid of the farmers. We live in a really sick society, really we do. There is no more law in this country and everyone does just like they please. One day God will through all the rubbishes into internal hell. One day they will pay forever.!

      The farm murders are only a tip of a blood spattered iceberg. Each year hundreds of urban whites are also murdered and many more are the victims of horrific violence motivated by racial hatred and deliberate genocide. The farm genocide is merely scratching the surface of South Africa's blood stained reality. The scary truth is that the farm killings are only a part of what is actually going on!

      Denise - 2012-05-02 23:08

      I hold the ANC responsible for the ongoing genocide of whites in South Africa. The heinous nature of the murders of the boer farmers is beyond description. Thus far the ANC's response to this genocide has been anemic; in fact, the ANC's indifference to these tragic murders has been indifference - an indifference that could easily be interpreted as a silent endorsement. I believe it is absolutely urgent to focus global attention on the ANC regime’s nonchalant, ho-hum attitude to the vicissitudes suffered by farmers, their families, labour & animals in what many people believe to be a politically motivated campaign! It's time to take a stand, no longer can we sit and do nothing as the white population of South Africa is being murdered.

      Benn - 2012-05-03 04:56

      Thank you Denise for providing us with FACTS. Sadly, however, facts are things that do not impress people in SA. They prefer to bury their heads in the sand in the vein hope, that when they take them out one day, the threat/problem would somehow have disappeared.

      Denise - 2012-05-03 15:39

      News24 reports "Money and guns were stolen". See the TRUTH here - watch video of the farm-wife murder interview with the husband the day after the execution-style murder. The truth is NOTHING WAS STOLEN. This is NO ordinary crime - this is a racial genocide that is explained away as crime.

      Denise - 2012-05-03 15:50

      Genocide is any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group, as such: (a) Killing members of the group;(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group. – Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Article II If you feel this is true for your situation, you have rights to be protected by the UN, you may have to leave SA and return another day…use them!

      Jacob Zuma will most likely ask his sell-out agent, Pieter Mulder, to go out there and calm the emotions. And Pietertjie will then do just that. And the Boertjies will fall for Pietertjie's lies and deceipt. And Zuma will have another whisky and cream-soda and smile.

      christo.stone - 2012-05-02 13:16

      @Jacobus, wtf is your problem towards rhinos? Both are news worthy. If you can't leave constructive comments, don't leave any at all. Rhinos need saving just as much as our farmers.

      Jacobus - 2012-05-02 13:25

      Christo, you obviously dont get it. So here it is. Why dont you change your profile pic to a killed farmer, instead of a rhino? Why dont government send in the cavalry to save the farmer? They send in the army to save rhino, and perlemoen... even spy-planes and satelites, but not to protect the farmers. What are we missing here. I have no problem with rhinos, I can kill them legally with a hunting permit and I can export the horn legally. No big deal. Are we doing enough to protect another species, that cannot protect themselves? Are YOU doing enough?

      marnalouw - 2012-05-02 13:32

      @Tc No...Zuma will not have another whiskey and cream soda....he will have another WIFE! But I completely agree. We really need to start doing something. This is so out of hand. And they just keep on telling us everything will be okay. It will never be okay because this won't stop. Lower than animals. That is what they are!

      Jacqui - 2012-05-02 13:42

      Jacobus your messages are becoming boreing. The farmer needs to be safe and so does the rhino. Don't keep on like a child.

      Jacqui - 2012-05-02 13:44

      Jaconus 'why don't the government send in the cavalry to save a farmer' What nonsense, how would they to do that to keep every farmer safe in this country?.

      George - 2012-05-02 17:39

      A lesson must be learnt from our long suffering compatriots in the townships. They have learnt to be vigilant (as in vigilantism) out of necessity. Their murder rate is quite low I believe. The farmers seem to have no option but to follow this example. Human life cannot be traded for promises never kept. When communal law fails to work, your law becomes your responsibility to protect yourself and your loved ones by whatever means. Your ancestors will guide you.

      George - 2012-05-02 17:46

      Has the Hon. Jacob Zuma, President of the Rep. of South Africa, sworn to uphold the constitution, issues a statement expressing the governments grief and outrage? No? Never? I thought so. AfriForum, the case is yours to defend your people against what can only be called targeted slaughter of your people. IMPLEMENT THE DEATH PENALTY NOW.

      Rob - 2012-05-02 12:30

      Yes Tony. Killing whites is a form of status in the black criminal world. Wont be long before the haters come out & say the 5 year old did it !

      Rob - 2012-05-02 12:47

      Rubbish Shannon, you've tried this before. By the way, I certainly cannot remember the last time a white killed a black & on the rare occasion it does happen, it is percieved as racist by black commentators on these forums. Once again it is you that is talking cr@p. How on earth any white person in this day & age could still be a liberal shocks me. Your kind are always making excuses for the heinous deeds of blacks. Hungry ? Ok steal but....Why kill ?

      Jacques - 2012-05-02 13:09

      Shannon are you insane. Why was the commondos done away with why was the rural protection removed. Why do the anc still fight for kill the boer to be part of culture instead of seeing what it is. Vulnarable yes but then why kill. Why not just steal. Now you thinking beacuase she might identify them. Come one realy the police dont even investigate these things anymore and even if you provide a gun with a photo of the murder they still get away. No supporter of ET but they bragged about killing him now look at the court case. This means identifying them is not the cuase of the killings but rather the hate. Shannon I also want to believe what you are saying but ignorence wont save my family nor yours - 2012-05-02 13:19

      @Rob - Questioning whether a horrible killing was racially motivated and justifying/explaining the action are 2 different things altogether. It was a heinous murder, there is little doubt of that. But I don't know what is in the mind of the killers. Neither do you. You are correct to say that most cross-racial murders (whatever direction) are tagged as being racially motivated. It does not make them racially motivated. Murder is murder. There is no possible justification. In this case I mainl see aggravating circumstances. Condolences to the family. Its an awful thing to happen and I hope the catch the perpetuators... soon.

      My sixpence worth - when we had the death penalty it was a known fact that blacks did not believe that it actually happened - they thought that the person was whisked away. True! Like they believe that a motorcar can stop in an instant - like a human when running - that is why so many get killed (although some may argure that the majority pissed). Like they believe that having sex with a virgin will cleanse them of the HIV! Like they still believe in the tokolosh. Like they still believe in killinig an ox at the new stadiium door to bring luck. Like braging to their mates about havin slept with a white woman (rape statistics prove this).

      @charlse what makes you they are racially motivated, for every farm murder commited 3 to 4 black people are murdered this has nothing to do with race farmers are easy targets for crimminals because they live in secluded areas. Hence why I condemned the murder. Talking about racist you must read Stormfront and come back to me later

      bluzulu - 2012-05-02 12:47

      Rob and folk of his ilk mean nothing Koketso, There will always be detractors unfortunately. Condolences to the Family, another unfortunate crime however as I explained many times regarding these Farm attacks, These Farmers need to change the manner in which Farm settlements are arranged. There needs to be a village setup where homes are closer together instead of the Farmer building his homestead off in the sticks.

      @Koketso what is wrong with you? 1. Norway is one of the most liberal countries when it comes to any race. Black, Muslim, White. They are all welcome there. 2. Not all white originate from Norway. 3. You preach about not all black are the same... yet you state "ut yet again you white you have no respect for human life." 4. You are lying about ever supporting the DA!!! 5. Your comment has some terrible grammer flaws. It hardly makes sense. All of these thing lead me to the concluton that you are an incompetant ANC retard. Whom like the rest of the ANC does not know what they are talking about. Yet they still make plenty of noise.

      @Koketso, you do know stormfront is a white supremacist website right? So you go there and then come back and label white people from what you read on a "white power" website?? How shallow are you?

      Koketso - 2012-05-02 13:18

      @Rob When I said our kids I ment black, white and grey. White people are as African as I am. Second, more black people are murdered by other black people, fact. Farms are secluded and remote, it is easy for crimminals to steal murder and plunder. And if you think black people are plannig to murder all the white farmers, they would have simply done it Zim style and no one would have said a thing. Lets condamn the crime not the race of the people. Simple as that.

      Koketso - 2012-05-02 13:27

      @pointblank, have you ever read News24 when a white person has been murdered, it is basicly a black bashing contest. @smile, being in a rush does affect your spelling and grammer, fact. Now lets get off our high horse :-) I apologise for the generalision I will remove the Norway comments.

      Terry - 2012-05-02 13:32

      If you are going to intoduce things like the Norway killer - at least get your facts right. He did not "kill hundreds of muslims" - he killed mainly white people, many of them on an island where they were doing a kind of leadership course as the youth wing of a politicaal party. His reasons for the killing were that they were members of a political party who did not oppose immigration of people from other cultures (i.e. muslims) - the people that he killed were not themselves muslims!

      Sonnyjakes - 2012-05-02 13:53

      @ Koketso and Shannon-Do poor people in India (millions) do this? A lot poorer than here?

      Koos - 2012-05-02 13:55

      Shannon, India has higher poverty levels than SA, their murder rate is way below that of SA. You should remove your blinkers and see it for what it is. What the police don't tell you is that she was most propably raped too. Saps always hide the true facts from the public.

      Jacqui - 2012-05-02 13:55

      Koketso, in the time you voted for the DA, you were thinking clearly, now you don't. Everytime a person other than black is refused a job because they aren't the right colour they are being victimized by a system introduced to make a hand full of blacks very rich. Don't tell me that was as it was under the old regime, we fought to change that and not to create millionaires of any sort. No one condemn the whole black race. But don't expect us to lower our standards to make those who won't do something about their own lives feel justified.

      johand.dutoit - 2012-05-02 17:52

      Koketso- Please,please,please ! Don't see the Stormfront as representative of the whites! They are not "all" white South Africans They are just a small minority of the ±5mil whites! You are exactly doing the same thing you say whites are doing by saying "white South Africans forever talk about being victimised maby you should look at yourselves carefuly."!

      johand.dutoit - 2012-05-02 18:00

      Shannon- So what you say is that it is OK to steal & murder when you are poor & hungry! Wow,in which utopia are you staying where everything is OK & an excuse?

      Merven - 2012-05-03 07:16

      So Shannon, there are more than 80 white squatter camps in and around Pretoria alone, so how come you don't read of poor whites raping and murdering people in the most brutal ways?

      Keaobaka - 2012-05-03 09:22

      I disagree with the majority here who are clearly saying that every farm attack is a genocide committed by a certain group against another group. When one person[shannon], who is not paranoid as the whole bunch, shows them what this really is and refutes the genocide claiming chorus they censor/delete their comments. Is news24 colluding with the genocide claiming bunch?? Until they provide evidence to back up their claim that: there is a link between what people like Malema have uttered and the so-called genocide, I will continue to see just a random killing that can happen to any South African.They must be feeling good about themselves because their paranoia is unrefuted. Predictably they are milking it to make their own cheap polical statements. This is not genocide as the convinient chorus has claimed here. All those who claim genocide must provide us with compelling evidence otherwise they are drunk from paranoia. My sincire condolences to the family.

      Michael - 2012-05-03 09:23

      @marven - the difference is culture! A quite different view on the value of human life!

      blipsie - 2012-05-03 09:51

      @ Shannon, I am not sure whether to laugh at you or feel sorry for you. The world you come from must surely be awful if you think that torturing people with a hot iron before killing them (elderly people mind you) is just crime because someone is hungry. If you are hungry and need food you will tie up the really old lady, steal whatever you want and get out of there. What does rape and torture/murder have to do with hunger? What could this mother possibly have done to deserve this? And her kids? You are contributing to the whole problem by denying the reality. Its racially motivated, how do you say?...oh yes, "finish and klaar". The hate and utter lack of any sympathy towards the victims are very very clear. I am really struggling to see where you are coming from and I am wondering if maybe you are not in fact a really "special" person. If this wasnt such a sad story I would laugh at you.

    Police will not help the farmers, Please open your eyes to the evil African Groups. The Majority of Africans are good honest people but the "right wing" groups are killing farmers in a "struggle" for freedom.... All Farmers of all colour must start to work together to eliminate the devil groups that are killing innocent people. Dear African people - The Apartheid was bad?, killings of your innocent people are bad? if you think its wrong what the past was please do not support the new apartheid and help each other towards a future for SA. The fact that many Africans on here say "well you did it to us" or "the past.." regardless of anything this is now not the past and if you think like this then your are as bad as the people your ancestors faught against. Think about that.

      Koos - 2012-05-02 14:17

      No no no Koos. Killing the general population will not achieve anything but to strengthen the cause of the ones in power. It must be done in a way that makes the normal citizens turn on the government with murderous intent. I pray that if someone does something like this that they do not waist their efforts in a direct assault on pointless targets.

We've lost 60,000 farmers and the President ignores the problem. Wow, talk about the Stockholm syndrome. How long will the Apartheid guilt trip last? Ordinary whites had no say. It was an economic system practiced by political and mainly business elites. The black people of SA must come to the defense of the whites. No other real solution.

      this is crime not farm attack,like anywhere else.

      Jacqueline - 2012-05-02 18:41

      @Michael: so far it is averaged to be about 250 people this year to date. And @Jeffrey: She was killed in her home, on a FARM, ergo FARM MURDER. Crime is robbery, breaking and entering, assault, hi-jacking etc, not shooting a woman in front of her 2 small children. That is a farm murder.

      SA - 2012-05-03 20:01

      Farm attacks and murders remains a serious issue for all South Africans, out of the 35000 commercial farms operating in South African 3158 farmers have been brutally murdered since 2004, whist most of these murders have taken place since 2008. Commercial farming in South African contributes 2.6% of our total GDP (R113.4 billion) and employees around 10% of the total work force in South Africa (1.76 Million people). Our farms produce the food we eat and contribute a large part of our global exports. Some report indicate that our farmers are being killed at a rate of 330 / 100000 people per year since 2008 (Six times higher that our already high murder rate) and the sheer violent uses during these attack indicate that there is something far more worrying going on, although there is no direct link to the ANC it must be noted that farm attacks and murders have seriously increased since Mr. Julius Sello Malema was elected as ANCYL. Organisations within South Africa have been monitoring and reporting on farm attacks and have reported the following statistics. 1995 (1), 1997 (1), 1999 (1), 2000 (1), 2001 (2), 2002 (2), 2003 (2), 2004 (01), 2005 (1), 2006 (2), 2007 (1), 2008 (37), 2009 (465), 2010 (439), 2011 (551), 2012 to date (92). = 1599 farm attacks, 3158 people murdered + all the murders listed in this post. Don’t worry the world is watching and there are several organisations and activists working to high light these issues to the world.

    this is murder (crime). Why is it tagged as a farm attack? Why not murder? Why do we put tags on crime? If she had been killed in her house in a surburb would it still be a farm attack? It's terrible a life was lost and i feel terrible for her children, but tagging every crime in farms as farm attacks and not just crime will incite further divisions in this country.

      Brett - 2012-05-02 13:23

      Pixie and Shannon what are you retards going to eat when there are no farmers left? Never mind you probabaly need to lose a few kilo's anyway.

      Manu - 2012-05-02 13:27

      Well said Pixie. I too have questioned why these farm crimes continue to be called 'Attacks'. It completely distorts the sense of the crime. My impression is that those who use this phrase want to create this perception that these crimes are planned and executed by organised groups with the sole purpose of decimating the white populations. But if one looks at the statistics and the crime reports there is nothing of the sort happening. It's like calling all burglaries 'House Attacks'.

      stefaans.blaauw - 2012-05-02 13:27

      Pixie this is labeled as a farm attack because it happened on a FARM. If happened in a house it would have been a HOUSE murder. Is it so hard to understand??? They want to have the farmers land not their houses. They already can buy houses anywhere they want , and it is not enough, they want the farms for free. And yes like Shanon said in her comment, people are murdered every day in SA, But that kind of murders happened for the past 100 years. The black population grew with a million a year, while the white population numbers are declining every year, most because of murders. Your comments on news24, wont save your white skin, your blood will flow together with the rest of the white man's blood.

Liberals are the easiest to “get on your side” by playing on their guilt and they are also the easiest to get rid off when you don’t need them anymore.

      Pixie86 - 2012-05-02 20:01

      i guess most of you missed my point. The point is we are all affected by crime, just read a few articles on news24 for confirmation, yet somehow people seem to view people killed on farms as a greater crime than let's say that girl who was gang raped. You're crying genocide and calling for the UN yet we're all prisoners in our country. Kids aren't safe anymore. Women aren't safe anymore! You could get killed for a bloody cellphone yet when someone in a farm is killed it's as though it's somehow a crime of international proportions! As for the idiot brett and his comments, if farms closed i'd still eat. Ever heard of subsistence farming? Some of us still practise it!

      Brett - 2012-05-02 20:34

      @pixie you would be good at subsistence farming because you produce fertilizer every time you speak.

      johand.dutoit - 2012-05-02 21:03

      Pixie86- Dream on girl! Do you know what subsistence farming is? That's the same as "F... you Jack, I,m OK" To farm you need seed & animals to feed a few people,where do you get that from? Have you ever heard of a countries economy? Buggered economy,buggered inhabitants! No work,no pay,no food for the ever increasing (Rabbit like) masses,famine,war! Do you still like your subsistence farming that much?

Their past will be a black dark history --their future will have this black birthmark or stain that they will never be able to remove. We curse the future of those elements that are denying SA this ONE chance to be a prosperous place. Cursed are the leaders that are playing along with this deadly game and through their silence they are giving Massive Support for this,- bit by bit genocide.

      I think what we are trying to say is, that the government does not regard this as high priority [farmers being killed]so the assumption is that back people do not care about us as white people, even though we are suppose to be part of the growth of this country, that we all love, and desperately want to be part of!

    This is only going to get worse with 35000 prisoners about to be released.

      Bradley - 2012-05-02 13:37

      can you say apocalypse

  • Manu - 2012-05-02 13:37

    Condolences to the family this must be tough on the children. But it's strange how so many want this to be anything but a crime. It has to be an 'Attack'. Do you want to tell me that the only way a white SA farmer can be murdered is if it is an 'Attack'? This is ludicrous. What of the rest, the +15000 who are murdered every year? Should we also say that they were 'Attacked' to death in their homes, on the street and so on?

      johand.dutoit - 2012-05-02 18:31

      What do you want to call it? A peaceful Sunday afternoon walk in the park perhaps? You tell me,how can a person die in this way without being attacked?

      Dawid - 2012-05-03 02:11

      Manu- For your info one point of a number of definitions of "attack" from "to set upon in a forceful, violent, hostile, or aggressive way, with or without a weapon;" So from this you see that in order to kill somebody,(crime),you have to attack,(crime),a person!

      Manu - 2012-05-03 07:17

      johan, why not call it murder, why not call it burglary, why not call it armed robber? After all these are all crimes defined by law and this is what these crimes are. That poor woman was murdered in the progress of an armed robbery. But for some it has to be a Farm Attack and nothing else. As Prixie asked earlier would the crime have been any different if the woman had been killed in the city?

      blipsie - 2012-05-03 10:03

      @ Manu. HELLO?? She was a woman, not armed. She had two small children in the house. If it was an armed robbery only, she would have been tied up or just locked in a room with her kids probably petrified. Its alarming how ignorant some people are. I worry about people who think its normal to kill an unarmed elderly person/woman/child to rob them?? I live in a much poorer African country. People get robbed all the time. They dont get killed and if they do its because they were also armed and a fight broke out. Elderly people, women and children do not get killed. There is something very very wrong in SA and pussyfooting around the problem trying to make it fit politically correct is contributing to the problem. Racists can be any colour. Wake up please man.

      Manu - 2012-05-03 12:30

      blipsie, I suggest that before commenting you first read and understand. I clearly wrote, "That poor woman was murdered in the progress of an armed robbery." Did you see that?

      blipsie - 2012-05-03 15:01

      @ Manu, I suggest you read other news sources too. Nothing was stolen. So what robbery would you be refering to?

      Manu - 2012-05-03 16:35

      blipsie, again please read the article. Right at the end it says, "Money and guns were stolen" it will avoid others having to correct you.

      blipsie - 2012-05-03 20:43

      @ Manu please use the wonder that is youtube and find the interview with her husband where he clearly states NOTHING WAS STOLEN. He lives there, he would probably know better than News24 and their half assed reporting. Can you read?

  • Leonard - 2012-05-02 13:37

    These killers work hand in hand with government, where will another white farmer buy a farm where whites have been killed on?its easier to sell of to a black business investor that doesn't know one thing about farming,

      Michael - 2012-05-04 08:55

      Sell off?? What you smoking - you mean TAKE!

  • Christo - 2012-05-02 13:38

    A SAD Day like any other, Government is sucseeding to deviding US based on our skin colour, and we are falling for their ploy(the lack of basic services and human rights as per our constitution). Imagine us standing togheter to get a better life for all.

  • pkheswa - 2012-05-02 13:43

    Ay no, these killings are getting way out of hand now.

  • max.maxwell - 2012-05-02 13:43

    The systematic slaughter of white farmers has gone far enough! What possible threat could that poor young mother have been? I believe the intention was to kill, not rob! The aim is to create a climate of fear amongst farmers, in order to create an exodus from South Africa, and thus the local politicians can take over for gratis!

  • i2meleng - 2012-05-02 13:52

    This must stop now - arghhhhh - Guavament stop ignoring these killings.

      Jacqui - 2012-05-02 14:12

      Malavi, is a troll and should be ignored. That way you don't feed his sick mind.

      Ngaka - 2012-05-02 15:01

      @E2 ~ They are not ignoring them,they simply lack the capacity to deal with them. This government cannot govern.There's absolutely nothing government about it.

      Merven - 2012-05-03 07:32

      That is bullshait Ngaka. Why did the ANC disbanded the Commando system that kept the farmers safe (other than to make the farmers easy targets)?

  • pkheswa - 2012-05-02 13:53

    This is way out of hand now

  • phosa.peter2 - 2012-05-02 13:55

    Where in the article saying is a white lady/farmer..pls .stop playing race cards and manage your anger..we all condenm the killing of farmers..blame the goverment rather than playing racism

      CharlesDumbwin - 2012-05-02 13:59

      I take it you haven't seen the article photo yet??? But before you go on, the victims are ALWAYS white and defenseless, the killers ALWAYS black. Like every other farm attack article ...

      johand.dutoit - 2012-05-02 18:33

      phosa.peter2- No offence meant but are you perhaps blind?
