July 1 2011 – Sowetan: Security guard Benjamin Jacobus Rafferty, 35, burnt to death inside a cash-in-transit van while it was being robbed – and it crashed into a slow freight-train and burned. The van was being held up by three black men – and one of them managed to grab the still-burning Afrikaner guard's CZ75 pistol before they fled from the crash-site: nothing else was stolen. Police are investigating ‘culpible homicide’.

The strange incident occurred at Saaiplaas Shaft No3 at the Virginia railway crossing at about 9am July 1 2011. Police said Benjamin Jacobus Rafferty burnt to death: hs body had to be extracated mechanically. "Cash boxes were not tampered with since they were still locked. A pistol belonging to the van driver and a machine gun were found in the burnt-out van," Khosana was quoted by Sowetan as commenting. She said after the collision the train dragged the cash-van a few metres until it fell on its side, with the wheels still next to the carriage.

"The train carriage with timber also caught fire and was almost derailed," Khosana said. Rafferty's body was taken to the Welkom state mortuary. A case of culpable homicide is being investigated. Khosana appealed to anyone who might have witnessed the ‘accident’ to contact Captain Ben Strydom of Virginia SAPS Detective Unit on 057-221-0113.

GenocideWatch: SA at level 6

 Rapport newspaper writes on its Face book page that they ‘received confirmation’ that Dr Gregory Stanton of GenocideWatch.org has changed its Level-5 designation of ‘South Africa’( Boers and Black Foreigners) as minorities at risk of genocide, to level 6 of genocide. 

“Dr Stanton is unavailable for the next few days,’ writes RapportWeb Thursday July 1: “As soon as we can discuss their working-methods and conclusions we will keep you updated. We did obtain confirmation that Genocide Watch has changed South Africa to Phase 6.’ (pageview below)

This confirms, once again, (other independent confirmation has also been received) the contents of Dr Stanton’s email to me on June 20 2011 – and which RapportWeb initially even implied ‘could have been faked’.

This is what Dr Stanton said in “A Bloody Harvest” - SA journalist Susan Puren’s brilliant investigation into the farm murders broadcast on MNet’s Carte Blanche:

Dr Stanton wrote me in response to my email on June 20 2011:

‘Dear Adriana: ‘We at Genocide Watch agree. Julius Malema must be removed as leader of the ANC youth league. He is a violent Maxist racist. Just like Winnie Mandela. Genocide Watch will upgrade South Africa to Stage 6 in the next week.’
