Summary Guard of honour for killed Afrikaner classmate Luan Engelbrecht; Afrikaners burn SA flag in Delmas; ANC-propagandists arrest pregnant Afrikaner farm woman: three farms attacked by black male gangs; East Rand’s white motorists terrorised by gangs in police-uniforms; two violent riots disguised squatters’ organised robbery attacks on motorists: trucker escapes torching. Something good - two vicious black male farm attackers who beat, kicked the trussed-up, elderly Afrikaans couple within an inch of their lives, were sent to prison for a long time.
Classmates of the Afrikaans Hoër Seunsskool formed a guard of honour for their friend 15-year-old Iuan Engelbrecht, who was murdered by a runaway gravel truck:
Fifteen-year-old Iuan Engelbrecht, died tragically late on Sunday afternoon when the Volkswagen Golf he and his brother were travelling in, was struck from the passenger side by what seemed to be a 20 ton runaway truck. The promising young sportsman and pupil of the Afrikaans Hoër Seunsskool in Pretoria died on impact in the company of his nineteen year-old brother (Carlo) who was behind the wheel of the vehicle as they were on their way back to Pretoria. Both brothers are from a prominent sport family in Rustenburg circles and took after their father who has also made his mark in sport. The SAPS said the 20 ton runaway MAN truck was transporting a load of gravel but ‘couldn’t manage to slow down and stop at the crossing of Waterberg Avenue and the infamous R24 road to Johannesburg/Krugersdorp.’ According to SAPS Captain Adéle Myburgh, the driver of the truck was allegedly transported from the scene by ambulance to hospital and disappeared before the police could arrive at the hospital.

Whites at Lowveld agricultural estates under siege by at least 8 black male gangs – SAPS warns:
Laura Macris, owner of a Wild Fig Farm agricultural estate and two female workers, injured, tied up for 8 hours, White River by armed gang: women badly traumatised
31 May 2012 Lowveld journalist Susanna Oosthuizen reports WITRIVIER -Well-known business woman Laura Macris and two female workers were tied up for eight hours by a gang of armed black male robbers. They were attacked on Tuesday-night May 29 212 23h00.
Mrs Macris' hands and wrists were 'seriously injured' and all three women were badly traumatised.They were found the next morning at 7h00 by the gardener, who heard their cries for help.Mrs Macris' son rushed from Johannesburg to help his mom. SAPS capt Ronel Bekker said it was unclear how the gang gained access, whether they fled on foot or by vehicles. She called on smallholdings in the area to 'accept responsibility for their own security'. "Many estates only has one or two guards which have to patrol 300hectare-estates yet residents seem to think that's safe enough."It is of great concern to me that there still are homes without security systems, and unfortunately the SAPS cannot patrol everywhere.She said the Macris estate did not have any alarm- not panic-systems in place. Last month a nearby homestead also was targetted by armed attackers: they had dug a hole underneath the fencing.a
Previous attack: All six men wore balaclavas and handguns in this attack, said Mrs Bekker, 'however it's not necessarily the same gang, but the possibility cannot be excluded'. The SAPS believes that theremay be as many as eight seperate, heavily-armed gangs operating in the Lowveld region.The suspects in the earlier attack last month were arrested in May but released into the community again with a mere R2,000 bail.The public prosecutor in this case said 'the SAPS are still searching for other suspects and awaiting ballistic tests.'

Smallholding owner Koos Mouton, brother-n-law, said Neels was shot twice: one shot execution-style through his neck and a second bullet in his stomach.Amanda-Louise also was pistol whipped and threatened that they will kill her.They left only with the cellphones and their silver Toyota Hilux-bakkie REGISTRATION CHT 191 L.

Good news: May 29 2012: Long prison sentences: Farm-attackers Sipho Nkosi, Isaack Madonsela: Davel, Ermelo, brutally beat, kicked trussed-up elderly couple Pieter & Rita Botes, Davel, Mpumalanga:
Above Mpumalanga: 35 yrs prison for vicious, excessively violent assaults against elderly Afrikaner farm-couple Pieter and Rita Botes, 73, outside Davel, Mpumalanga on 29 Nov 2011 - a shockingly violent farm attack which however was not widely reported in the SA news media. It was a miracle the elderly couple survived the facial beatings and kicks meted out to them by at least two of three farm attackers while they were tied up and defenceless.
May 31 2012: Internal 'misconduct' hearing of Afrikaner Adv. Glynnis Breytenbach, suspended head of National Prosecution Authority Gauteng.
Amongst other high-profile cases, she was also investigating fraud and corruption charges cases Jacob Zuma's son; against 'suspended' ANC youth league president Julius Malema and also against SAPS crime-intelligence chief.
Two weeks earlier, shots had been fired at her by two helmeted bikers who tried to force her off the road. 2012-04-30 Shots fired at Adv Glynnis Breytenbach, suspended head of National Prosecution Authority Gauteng, on April 30 2012. She showed up at her office and found she had been 'suspended' from her work a few days before.There is a strong suspicion that Advocate Breytenbach was suspended after she had refused to drop the corruption case against SAPS crime-intelligence chief LtGen Richard Mdluli.On April 11 2012, she was targetted by two helmeted men on BMW bikes: shots were fired towards her while she was driving.The bikers attempted to push her car off the road to try and get her to crash. This occurred on the N14 freeway near an offramp of Centurion.She notified the special SAPS unit the Falcons of the incident - but not not submit a formal complaint to the SAPS because she would be unable to identify the helmeted gunmen."If this was an attempt to intimidate me, they did not succeed in their aim' she told Beeld newspaper. SA opposition Democratic Alliance MP Dene Smits questioned the timing of Adv Breytenbach's suspension shortly after she refused to dismiss the case against the powerful local ANC-leader Mdluli.Before Zuma announced that Mdluli had been 'suspended' and that his 'security clearance had lapses', the news media reports were rife that Mdluli would become the SAPS national police chief to replace Genl.. Bheki Cele, who's also been suspended pending an 'investigation regarding fraud.' The acting head of the National Prosecuting Authority who took Mrs Breytenbach's job, dv Nomgcobo Jiba however claims that the Afrikaner advocate was suspended 'pending an investigation into alleged abuse of power in the investigation of the fraud surrounding the ownership of Kumba/Imperial Crown Trading (ICT) mining company. Mrs Breytenbach is livid: "My flawless reputation as a prosecuting advocate has been placed in jeopardy, but I am convinced I can prove that there is no blame from my side.' The spokeswoman of the NPA miss Bulelwa Makeke confirmed that Advocate Breytenbach's investigation is being handled by 'other prosecutors for an internal investigation'. Advocate Breytenbach was in charge of other investigations: amongst others the murky financial dealings of Julius Malema, who was dismissed as leader of the ANC youth league last week.She was also investigating fraud allegations surrounding Cricket South Africa. Last year she also led the fraud investigation submitted by Kumba against ICT company into the way that Kumba managed to get ownership rights of South Africa's largest iron-ore company, Sishen.The court had ruled last December that ICT did not have any ownership rights, and the fraud investigation concentrated on falsification of title-acts. SA president Jacob Zuma's son Duduzane and the UK-based brothers Gupta, owners of massive steel-mill holdings worldwide, were also being investigated.On 25 November last year the then-acting head of the NPA advocate Mrs Karin van Rensburg had complained about advocate Breytenbach's investigation and ordered it handed to another prosecuting advocate.
