UK property mogul Chris Drummond murdered April 6 2010

 

Cape Town – Crime-fighting British property developer Chris Drummond was murdered in Claremont, Cape Town on April 6 2010 -- he did not take his own life as the initial  SAPS crime reports had claimed. The wealthy international property developer was found dead on a Claremont street four storeys below his parked luxury Audi 4x4 on Tuesday, April 6, writes Cape Argus staff writer Murray Williams. It was the hugely successful property mogul who had also launched the Claremont Improvement District Company (CIDC)– which helped crime statistics for the Claremont CDC drop well below the national average. He was only recently quoted as saying in an interview that ‘street children are rarely found in Claremont…”

And the SAPS’ newly-formed "priority crimes unit", the Hawks, were called in within just days, reports The Argus:

"There is no doubt that he was thrown over the building and did not jump," Klatzow said on Monday night. "There was blood on one of the pillars of the parking garage some distance from the parapet, which we're awaiting DNA test results for," he said.  

The Property-Mag interviewed British-born Chris Drummond in March this year, writing that he moved to South Africa in 1983 -- the same year he was elected as a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.

“Senior directorships in big corporates kept him busy in Johannesburg, until he zipped off to Spain to develop the luxury residential resort, Miraflores, in Marbella. By then he was a partner in Sage Properties, which he bought out in 1996 on his return to SA – this time to Cape Town.

It’s luxury living on a farm in Africa…

“In 1997, Chris launched New Property Ventures, whose offerings include Arabella Golf Country Estate and Pinnacle Point. But Benguela Cove is clearly the flagship of his portfolio: ‘It’s luxury country living on a farm in Africa,’ says Chris.

‘And then there’s the space. There are only 124 homes on 210ha, making Benguela Cove the lowest-density residential estate in South Africa’.

Sixty-five of those hectares are devoted to vines, which are clearly thriving: the 2007 Maiden Vintage Sauvignon Blanc has already won an award.

Chairman of the Claremont Improvement District Company…

Property Mag also noted that he ‘still  finds time his hectic schedule for the social-upliftment and charity organisations he heads. Chris is chairman of the Claremont Improvement District Company (CIDC), which has been instrumental in the successful urban renewal of the Claremont CBD. Funded by a levy derived from local ratepayers, the CIDC provides additional services, like extra street cleaners and 24-hour security patrols. The company also financed the major road arterial, Claremont Boulevard, to the tune of R24-million. ‘So far, we’ve succeeded in creating an enhanced, safer and cleaner environment, which is attractive to consumers, investors and business owners,’ Chris says. ‘The results speak for themselves: crime statistics have dropped, and, even more significantly, street children are rarely found in Claremont.’

The Mozambiquan monster who pistol-whipped Afrikaans baby Marizaan Kruger, 1

Has anybody seen Chakhoma Machaba of Mozambique? … approach with care!

Police are looking for this Mozambiquan male , Chakhoma Machama, 28. Police believe he was the one who had viciously pistol-whipped Afrikaans baby Marizaan Kruger, 1, during a so-called ‘armed robbery’ at the child’s Robindale, Randburg home on April 22 2010. Very little of value was actually stolen.

Matha chakhoma Moz 28 attacked Marizaan Kruger 1 RandburgApril222010The little girl – who had just celebrated her first birthday two days earlier – was bashed so viciously that she has been in a coma ever since. The SAPS revealed that this person’s  name is Chakhoma Machaba and that he, moreover, also he was the "trusted friend" of Marizaan’s  child-carer Francina Sekhu. At around midday on Thursday this ‘trusted’ black person sat watching TV in the lounge of Mrs Sekhu’s employers, the Kruger family, who had moved into the Robindale, Randburg home only a year earlier from the Free State.

As they sat watching TV, another two Mozambiquan males walked into the front door…

----------------------

An hour later, when Marizaan's mother Madelein arrived home from work, Machaba and his comrSekhu Franscina carer of Marizaan Kruger 1 attacked Robindale RandburgApril222010ades had fled, the Afrikaans baby lay bleeding from the head, nose and ears and had to be resuscitated three times enroute to hospital – and her carer Mrs Sekhu was a bloody heap on the kitchen floor.

The baby had been pistol whipped after Machaba had let inside two fellow-Mozambiquans. They only stole a laptop and a modem before strolling out again… they could have looted the entire place and there was no reason whatsoever to assault the baby and her carer – but they only stole a small laptop computer and a modem. http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=1&click_id=13&art_id=vn20100427042549182C490119&singlepage=1

Marizaan Kruger – aged one, just beginning to walk -- was so badly battered that her skull was crushed and she fell into a coma at once. The baby girl – it is being claimed – is still fighting for her life. Mrs Sekhu is recovering well, sitting up in her hospital bed and chatting to family members.

No ordinary crime – this is a genocidal hate-crime:

  Was this really just another ‘ordinary crime’? Or was this a hate-crime targetting an Afrikaans baby and her carer -- by black  racists who stole very little of value – but were targetting the child deliberately? The International Campaign to End Genocide lists South Africa's 'Boers and Refugees' as being at risk of "Genocide Politicide or Mass Atrocities at the hands of Black Racists' according to their "Countries at Risk 2010" ...and Boers have been listed as being at risk of genocide ever since 2002... http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2010/04/genocide-watch-2010-boers-refugees-at.html

The police however describes this genocidal gang-assault against this white baby and her carer, as just another ordinary crime, just another  ‘armed robbery’.

The Krugers arrived about a year ago from the Free State with their carer – and moved into this small home, which had already been burgled twice, causing the previous occupant to move because it was just too unsafe, said a neighbour.

Erna van Wyk of Rapport newspaper in Johannesburg evanwyk@rapport.co.za also writes that South Africans ‘have reacted with horror to the brutal attack on the baby girl. She’d only celebrated her first birthday two days earlier – Rapport: http://www.rapport.co.za/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Baba-se-aanranding-skok-die-hele-land-20100424

Violence-report ignored by ANC-regime

David Bruce, senior researcher at the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation, says meanwhile their report – which tried to examine the reasons for the out-of-control violence which is spreading across South Africa, is ‘gathering dust at the government. “Our last attempt to draw the government’s attention to our reports failed in March this year when the portfolio committee cancelled a discussion about it. Instead they discussed the new ranking systems for the SAPS – rather than discuss a report which explains why the most atrocious and violent forms of violence often form part of the South African crime pattern.

*Hopefully the portfolio-committee will now pay attention to our report in September.’
