Gerhard Steyn, Afrikaans singer, attacked, Bartlett Boksburg home Nov 12 2010
2010-11-13 Wolfram Zwecker reports in beeld that 'baby-tjoklits' singer Gerhard Steyn was attacked and tied up by two black armed robbers at his smallholdings-home in the high-security complex of Bartlett, Boksburg.“Don’t fight, don’t fight,” said one. They were searching for safe and money. They looted his home-movie theatre system worth R100,000. They tied him up and threw a duvet over his head (why they they always do that, cover up their victims?) He still performed at his scheduled appearance at the Dutch Reformed Church in Van Dykpark the following evening.His website: http://www.gerhard-steyn.co.za/"The show must go on,” he said- Volksblad http://www.volksblad.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Baby-tjoklits-sanger-beroof-20101113
Riaan Vermeulen, 16, grabbed gun from black attacker after the man shot his dad in his legs...
2010-11-20 Marisa Phillips - Welkom, FS. High School pupil Riaan Vermeulen, 16, did a brave thing: he grabbed away the handgun from an armed man who had just shot his dad in both legs on September 19 2010.His dad now is in stable condition at a Bloemfontein hospital.
Mom Jackie Vermeulen said the family woke up at around 2:30am after they'd all fallen asleep in front of the TV."Two men were inside the house and pointed a gun at my oldest son's face,' she said.She said the family suspect that they had been drugged somehowbecause all were so sound asleep.Mr Vermeulen senior however immediate stormed towards the two gunmen - one shooting him in his legs while the other one ran for his life."Riaan tackled the gunman and grappled the gun away from him,' sh said. "He then fired towards the gunman who then also fled."It was a traumatic experience she said. "We are afraid that they are going to come and shoot us. Riaan is terrified that they will be back to kill him.'SAPS captain Stephen Thakeng said both 'burglars' (what a strange description for armed men who drug your family and shoot down your husband...) collapsed in the erf next door while trying to flee.The man is under police guard at the Bongani hospital in critical condition.It's not known if the Afrikaner youth will be charged with attempted murder - which usually happens in South Africa when whites try to defend themselves from armed attackers.
15 armed black cops search 4-member Afrikaner family's home without warrants:
PLACE: UNKNOWN. “ At around 15:50 on Friday 19 November 2010, we (four) were sitting in our front room as usual. The front gate’s bell was rung. My son, Daviyd, went out – because we have a small spaza-shop. The police stood there. They asked whether we sold alcohol. Daviyd replied: “No”. They wanted to come in and look…”“However Daviyd said they first had to show their search-warrant. One of the black female officers made a move towards her service-pistol but then she noticed that Daviyed did not have a gun.“Meanwhile when two of the black SAPS members were trying to climb across the wall, Daviyed alerted his dad. At this point there were three police vehicles filled with some eight black officers, men and women. They all were very aggressive towards us. We told them ‘only two’ could come inside to search and we kept asking them what they were searching for. They replied’’you will find out what we are searching for…’ We told them that we would be watching them so that they ‘could not plant any fake evidence.’ I warned them we were calling our attorney and they replied we could ‘phone twenty attorneys’. We contacted attorney Voltan Senekal and asked for advice. When the police-officers heard this they left and sat outside in their vehicles.“Voltan advised us to ‘let them in because you have nothing to hide’.
- * (comment: The attorney should have rushed there at once to demand a search warrant be shown first… it’s the LAW!)
- Why was it necessary to have 15 armed black cops intimidate four unarmed white people?
“The cops meanwhile told us that they were waiting for their commander, one Brig. Le Grange. When he arrived – by now there were some 10 to 15 officers in some six vehicles and only one, Le Grange, was white. And not one had any kind of search-warrant.
“They claimed my children ‘were hiding drugs’ because ‘we would not let them inside.’ The children meanwhile went to hide our little pet dogs because we were afraid the dogs might bite the cops.“So they searched our entire property without any arrest warrants – and found absolutely nothing – except some ginger-ale. Me and my children aren’t crooks.“They even tore apart my fifteen-year-old daughter’s room, searching underneath her knitting-machine and nearly dumping her sewing-machine from her desk. Then they searched my 18-year-old son’s bedroom. They asked him about the bird-seed which was scattered on the floor – and he showed them his pet pigeon he’d hidden beneath the bed. Only when they saw the pigeon, were they satisfied the seeds were not drugs. My children feel that these cops invaded their privacy.
“Why was it necessary to have fifteen black police officers come and intimidated four unarmed white people? Three of the registration numbers of the police vehicles were BRL 525 B; BRV 410 B; and BNW 360 B. Most of the SAPS members also did not have any name-tags even though this is required by law. Unfortunately we thus cannot provide their names except Brig Le Grange’s name.
Afrikaners are rapidly changing from the ex-employers of millions of blacks and home-owners to desperately hungry internal refugees who cannot find safe refuge in their own country…
Pretoria, South Africa, 18 November 2010 - The ‘housing crisis’ for poor South Africans is taking a startling new turn. The ANC-regime is planning the forced-removals of poor Afrikaners to black townships, starting with Krugersdorp’s Coronation Park squatters. However the black residents in the townships are up in arms about these plans: often violently opposed to having poor ‘Boers’ in their midst. A recent article in the Sowetan about the forced move received some 280 comments - many of a very racist nature...
Moreover, the Afrikaners – greatly fearing for their safety -- also don’t want to be moved there and plan a protest march through Pretoria’s Main street on December 11, 2010.
There’s a massive backlog in the building of public houses for poor blacks – also because there are an annual million poor black people streaming across the wide-open borders from the rest of the continent who put heavy stresses on the country’s rapidly-dwindling resources.
800,000 of 3m Afrikaners have become internal refugees by 2010:
The ANC Government’s anti-white hiring- and land-ownership laws, the so-called black-economic-empowerment laws, cause severe homelessness, hunger and poverty among Afrikaners which is even worse than it is foor poor blacks: the ANC-regime provides government benefits to some 16-million poor blacks and feeds 12-million poor children in the schools – benefits which they deny to the Afrikaners. 800,000 of the 3-million Afrikaners now live in abject poverty because of the ANC-regime’s official laws barring them from most public life: including jobs. They are even denied public health care and the government’s food-stamps...
These increasingly desperate and malnourished internal refugees huddle together in some 640 squatter camps countrywide – often living at former missionary stations, in discarded government buildings – and many also created small enclaves at public municipal parks or discarded campsites of the Afrikaanse Taal and Kultuurvereniging.
These dirt-poor Afriakner people thus are steadily growing more and more destitute and underfed as they are denied government benefits such as food-aid, unemployment- or disability pensions. There are just a few private welfare organisations which dare to help them such as Solidarity trade union ‘s Helping Hand charity, which tries desperately to keep feeding and housing them all…
‘War over resources…’
“The ANC finds itself in a predicament,” (writes J Mare on the Afrikaner Journal) : “It will now have to cater for the needs of poor South Africans from both the black and ‘white’ communities. How will they solve the problem when they cannot even provide housing for the electorate who have voted them into power? It seems as if the situation is inevitable going to lead to a war over resources”..
Indeed: Resources which most blacks believe they have exclusive rights to. Many also feel that the government’s mandate does not include the upliftment or even the nourishment of poor Afrikaners, warns Mare.
The ANC-regime now is planning to uproot some of the Afrikaner squatter camps by force and dump them in nearby black townships. But Afrikaners greatly fear being dumped in these squatter camps – where the clearly already present animosity can very quickly turn into deadly violence.
‘We need the freedom to live in peace amongst people of our own culture…’
Afrikaners are greatly endangered and vulnerable and the ANC-regime must start facing the facts and realise that they can only be safe when they have a place of their own. Writes Mare: “We need the freedom to live in peace amongst people of our own culture. Why is this too much to ask?”
article in Sowetan:
Blacks don’t want the Afrikaner squatters to be forcibly removed from the municipal park in Krugersdorp – Coronation Park – to the new Mogale government housing project, writes Bafana Mahlangu in The Sowetan on November 17 2010. 284 comments
“THE war between the poor white squatters of Coronation Park and the Kagiso People’s Civic Organisation is on,” he writes. “Residents are up in arms over the proposed allocation of houses in the Chief Mogale Housing Project in Kagiso to ‘whites’. They say it is unjustified for the municipality to give priority to poor whites by allocating RDP houses to them ahead of the poor blacks from the township.
Picture: “Whites are not welcome in Kagiso… we are going to mobilise,” warned Kagiso Park Civic gen.secry Luyanda Njomane. “We were never consulted; it was a shock when we read about this in the media.” The Afrikaner squatters in Coronation Park don’t want to move either: rejecting temporary housing in the black Munsieville squattercamp.
Coronation Park dwellers have since rejected temporary housing in Munsieville. Resident Irene van Niekerk said: “Give us a piece of land and we will move. Black people are going to kill our people (in Kagiso). They say they are going to kill us if we move into the (RDP) houses.” Van Niekerk said if they moved to Kagiso, they would be far from schools and hospitals.
Njomane said: “A legitimate expectation was created when the people of Kagiso registered in 1996. The whites have never registered for RDP houses at all. What about grannies who have registered and have been overlooked? This is an unfair decision taken at the expense of legitimate beneficiaries.”
The civic organisation said it needed clarity as to why a 24-year-old and those who registered after 2000 were allocated a houses. It claimed the department of housing had no clue about Housing Demand Database “Ziveze”, which contains a list of those who registered in 1996-97. It said they wanted fairness to prevail in the allocation and priority given to the elderly, orphans, disabled and military veterans. It accused the municipality of failing to address the matter since 1999. http://www.sowetanlive.co.za/news/2010/11/17/whites-blacks-fight-over-rdps
