Olympic swimmer Ryk Neethling's mom survives armed home-attack
Olympic gold-medallist swimmer Ryk Neethling's mom San-Marié narrowly escaped an attacker's bullet when his Lynnwood, Pretoria home was targetted by an armed gang which had broken down their electric security gate to get inside the property.
- also, yesterday’s report: “Afrikaners unsafe in public’- http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2010/05/afrikaners-are-unsafe-in-public.html
Beeld newspaper journalist Mia Willemse writes that one of the male attackers had grabbed Mrs Neethling by the throat as she was fleeing downstairs to get out of the house - and another outside had fired a shot at her – but she just kept running and escaped. The shot had missed.
Her son was not at home: he is on safari in the Seregenti wildlife reserve at the moment.
And the only thing these people stole was a plasma-TV set. They left all the other valuables inside the Neethling home untouched.
Willemse writes that this was the fourth time that Neethling’s family has been targetted by criminals: they were burgled in 2006 and 2007; and Mrs Neethling was beaten in the face by a man while she was enroute to visit her daughter Elsje Neethling-Blair at the Wilgeheuwel Life Hospital in Roodepoort.
SAPS warrant-officer Dwayne Lightfoot said yesterday that Mrs Neethling was attacked inside her home at around 16:30pm on Monday, May 25 2010. She was on the upstairs floor when she heard the dogs bark, looked out the window 'and saw three suspect males breaking down the electric gate and forcing it open.' The black men were estimated to be between 25-27 years old.
- Mrs Neethling ran downstairs and straight into two of the attackers. Apparently the third one was inside a car idling in the driveway.
One man grabbed Mrs Neethling by the throat -- but she mananaged to escape his grip and ran from the house. "The man inside the car shouted at her to stop running because he would shoot. She didn't stop running though and he fired a shot.'
The bullet missed and Mrs Neethling just kept on running. The men then merely looted a plasma-TV and left. They could have emptied out the entire house
- Mrs Neethling would not comment about the attack against her until she'd spoken to her son, who is 'elsewhere in Africa at the moment.
There have been no arrests. According to his Facebook page he is travelling at the Serengeti wildlife reserve at the moment. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Koe%C3%ABl-mis-Ryk-se-ma-toe-3-op-huis-toeslaan-20100525
May 15 2010. London’s Bobbies seemed unconcerned about the red-shirted Afrikaners and Enlgish-speaking South Africans who held a protet at the South African ambassy in Trafalgar Square. More than 1-million South African whites have already voted with their feet and left the country of their birth. The violent crime-rates have reached crisis point with more than 50 murders and 48 culpible homicides a DAY and many thousands of especially white and Asian families attacked inside their homes by very violent, large armed gangs.
