Krugersdorp families feel unsafe amidst waves of cruelties

Summary: Eric Nkuna and Fortunato Simbine - - who had been attacking and terrorising Afrikaner families on Krugersdorp’s smallholdingings throughout 2009 – yesterday were found guilty of four charges of housebreaking and armed robbery: Eric Nkuna also was found guilty of executing Afrikaner family-man Juan van Eeden, 28, in Noordheuwel on 10 October 2009. The court heard that these two armed black males had waged a reign of terror throughout the Krugersdorp smallholdings area – and which included very cruel, long-term psychological and physical torture of their Afrikaner victimslink 

Who do you want us to shoot dead first – your mommy or your daddy? asked the black gunmen…

2012-02-06 Ügen Vos writes in Beeld from KRUGERSDORP regional court that Eric Nkuna and Foftunato, the two black attackers who had terrorised Afrikaner families at the West Rand throughout 2009, were found guilty on four charges of housebreaking and armed robbery: and that Nkuna also found guilty of murdering a local Afrikaner resident due to 'insufficient evidence'.  Nkuna and Simbine were infamous for their campaign of terror in 2009 during which they often tortured their Afrikaner victims psychologically and physically: the mother of two little girls testifying that the men had asked her children ‘who they wanted shot dead first, 'mommy or daddy'?
Magistrate Keith Page found Nkuna guilty of murdering  Juan van Eeden (28) op 10 Oktober 2009 in Noordheuwel, Krugersdorp. Page ruled however that there was insufficient evidence to link Simbine to the murder. State prosecutor  Micky Thesner emphasized the evidence before the court that the residents 'often were tortured psychologically and physically'.For instance, during their attack on Mrs Marie Cloete and her two- and seven-year-old daughters, and Mr Harry Kok on 25 February 2009 the Afrikaners were held at gunpoint for hours.Mrs Cloete testified that Nkuna and Simbine smoked a marijuana-cigarette during the family's ordeal: and asked her children 'which one of your parents should be shot dead first'. They apparently surmised that Mr Kok was the father of the children, she testified. Nkuna also threatened to rape Mrs Cloete in her youngstest child's bedroom. The attackers drove off in her Ford Tracer.

Juan van Eeden was executed with a single-shot through his neck:

Mr Juan van Eeden 's murder also was horrific, the court heard. Mr Van Eeden tried to lock himself in the main-bedroom of his home on 10 October 2009 while Nkuna broke in at 2am. Nkuna broke down the bedroom door and 'coldbloodedly shot dead Van Eeden with a neckshot', the court heard.

Finger-print on their .45 pistol was linked to cartridge at Van Eeden’s murder scene:

On 22 Oct 2009 the two terrorists had also attacked Mr Johan Potgieter in Noordheuwel after poisoning his staffordshire-terriër. However this was a crucial turning point for the police in tracing the two men: Potgieter was able to push an emergency service's button while the two armed black males stormed into his bedroom.   In their haste to flee before the armed response unit would arrive, they lost a .45 pistol - with Simbine's finger-print on it.  And this .45 pistol provided the positive proof, the vital link that the cartridge which was used to murder Mr Van Eeden, was directly linked to Simbine.
On 23 October the gang attacked Mrs Johanna Paulina Erasmus at her home in Noordheuwel.
They tried to strangle her, then beat her unconscious with a spanner and fled with a Mercedes Benz 230 which was traced by her tracking company and the West Rand Reaction Unit - and both men were arrested.

The terror campaign against the Afrikaners of Krugersdorp continues unabated: even Freedom Front Plus MEC Jaco Mulder feels unsafe inside his own Noordheuwel home…

However while these two men have been arrested and tried, the campaign of terror against the Afrikaners around Krugersdorp continues unabated. On Nov 1 2011, Krugersdorp Noordheuwel families suffered a wave of senseless knifing attacks: with one girl surviving with horrid mutilations carved into her body by two black men in a frenzied attack. The 22-year-old girl lives right across the home of the Gauteng premier Mrs Nombula Mokonyane...
-- The girl was attacked at 11am on Nov 1 2011 in her home in Noordheuwel Krugersdorp. She was deliberately mutilated by the two black males with knives who stabbed her repeatedly in the frenzied attack  She fought back courageously and managed to send an SOS to her mother - which caused her attackers to flee.Nothing was robbed.

This incident was only one of a series of senseless knifing attacks targetting Afrikaners throughout this region. The victim's identity is not released for security reasons, the police said.

Freedom Front Plus member Jaco Mulder (above) said after the incident he no longer feels safe with his family in their Noordheuwel home. Mulder, who is a MEC- member of the Gauteng provincial security committee, said that there are spates of attacks and house-breakings targetting people in their homes. "The criminals clearly do not fear any of the law-enforcement agencies in South Africa. Criminals move around freely in suburbs, and use exquisitively-detailed intelligence and information about the daily habits of their identified victims. The SAPS and the neighbourhood-watch initiatives are falling down flat when it comes to crime-intelligence.'

This is the way the above terror-campaign against the Afrikaner families of  Krugersdorp was reported by the English-language SA news media:

Guilty verdict for two Mozambicans - February 7 2012 at 09:45am Two Mozambican criminals who terrorised homes in Krugersdorp, west of Joburg, in 2009 have been convicted on four counts of robbery with aggravating circumstances, according to a report on Tuesday. Eric Nkuna and Fortunato Simbine targeted townhouse complexes in the Noordheuwel area, frequently inflicting psychological and physical torture on their victims.Nkuna was also found to have murdered Juan van Eeden, 28, at his townhouse complex, but there was insufficient evidence to link Simbine to the crime, Beeld newspaper reported.In one incident, a family was held captive for hours, the mother was threatened with rape and the two daughters, who were seven and two respectively, were asked which of their parents should be shot first.In a separate case, Simbine left a fingerprint at the scene of the crime after holding up Johan Potgieter at his home.In another incident, a woman was choked, then beaten with a monkey wrench, before they stole her car.Sentencing will take place later this week. – Sapa http://www.iol.co.za/news/crime-courts/guilty-verdict-for-two-mozambicans-1.1228727

Percy Van Rooijen, Wes Geldenhuys warn urgently that many farm-attacks targetting Afrikaner smallholders are expected at the Brits smallholdings
Feb 7 2012 - 11:00 am: Wes Geldenhuys - Urgent: all farmers on smallholdings and farms in the Brits region - Hekpoort, Wolhuters Kop, Sandfontein,  DeKroon, Sonop settlement and surrounding areas, be alert: A trucker reported that the blacks are going 'all-out' in those NW areas to murder and plunder us. Farm-attacks will be inevitable with organised groups of five to six each from about 7pm at night especially when you are watching TV inside.  They figure you are drunk during those times. This trucker does not want to report this to the police because he's scared they will kill him."

Africa is giving almost nothing to anyone – apart from AIDS

Why did longtime Africa-journalist Kevin Meyers write in 2008: Africa is giving almost nothing to anyone – apart from AIDS’? - the Irish Press Council ruled it ‘was not likely to stir up hatred’,  yet the article remains banned from the Irish Independent’s pages:

(*the original 2008 article reproduced below was removed by the Irish Independent after a complaint to the Press Council was upheld -  however we reproduce it below because the Press Council also ruled it did not ‘stir up racial hatred.’ The journalist himself also complained (below) about the Irish Independent leaving out one word, ‘almost’, and headlining his article “Africa is giving nothing to anyone – apart from AIDS’).  We would argue that had the article carried the word ‘almost’ in its title as we did now, it probably might still be online. What a difference one little word makes…

“A quarter of a century ago, we saved an Evil, Misogynistic and Dysfunctional social system in Ethiopia….

MYERS KEVIN JOURNALIST IRISH INDEPENDENT AFRICA HAS NEVER GIVEN ANYTHING TO ANYONE EXCEPT AIDS ARTICLE WHAT I SHOULD HAVE WRITTEN YEARS AGO Above: On July 22 2008, Myers wrote that he “was writing what I should have written so many years ago: I was deliberately strong in my use of language… as indeed I had been when writing reports from Ethopia at the height of that terrible famine…’  He continued: “We did more in Ethiopia a quarter of a century ago than just rescue children from terrible death through starvation: we also saved an evil, misogynistic and dysfunctional social system. Presuming that half the existing population *(say, 17million) of the mid 1980s is now dead through ‘non-famine causes’…

“Africa is giving almost nothing to anyone – apart from AIDS”
Kevin Myers, ex-journalist at Irish Independent wrote 

No. It will not do. Even as we see African states refusing to take action to restore something resembling civilisation in Zimbabwe, the Begging bowl for Ethiopia is being passed around to us, yet again.

It is nearly 25 years since Ethiopia's (and Bob Geldof's) famous Feed The World campaign, and in that time Ethiopia's population has grown from 33.5 million to 78 million today.So, why on earth should I do anything to encourage further catastrophic demographic growth in that country? Where is the logic? There is none.To be sure, there are two things saying that logic doesn't count.One is my conscience, and the other is the picture, yet again, of another wide-eyed child, yet again, gazing, yet again, at the camera,which yet again, captures the tragedy of . . .Sorry.
My conscience has toured this territory on foot and financially.Unlike most of you, I have been to Ethiopia; like most of you, I have stumped up the loot to charities to stop starvation there.

The wide-eyed boy-child we saved 20 years ago, now is a priapic, Kalashnikov-bearing hearty…
The wide-eyed boy-child we saved, 20 years or so ago, is now a priapic, Kalashnikov-bearing hearty, siring children whenever the whim takes him. 

There is, no doubt a good argument why we should prolong this predatory and dysfunctional economic, social and sexual system; but I do not know what it is.

There is, on the other hand, every reason not to write a column like this. It will win no friends, and will provoke the self-righteous wrath of, well, the self-righteous, hand wringing, letter writing wrathful individuals, a species which never fails to contaminate almost every debate in Irish life with its sneers and its moral superiority. It will also probably enrage some of the finest men in Irish life, like John O'Shea, of Goal; and the Finucane brothers, men whom I admire enormously. So be it.
But, please, please, you self-righteously wrathful, spare me mention of our own Irish Famine, with this or that lazy analogy.

There is no comparison. Within 20 years of the Famine, the Irish population was down by 30%. Over the equivalent period, thanks to western food, the Mercedes 10-wheel truck and the Lockheed Hercules, Ethiopia's population has more than doubled.
Alas, that wretched country is not alone in its madness. Somewhere, over the rainbow, lies Somalia, another fine land of violent, Kalashnikov-toting, khat-chewing, girl-circumcising, permanently tumescent layabouts.

‘We now have almost an entire continent of sexually hyperactive, illiterate indigents: ‘
Indeed, we now have almost an entire continent of sexually hyperactive, illiterate indigents, with tens of millions of people who only survive because of help from the outside world.
This dependency has not stimulated political prudence or common-sense.

‘Voodoo idiocy: a little tap water on the post-coital penis to prevent AIDS…

Indeed, voodoo idiocy seems to be in the ascendant, with the president of South Africa being a firm believer in the efficacy of a little tap water on the post-coital penis as a sure preventative against AIDS infection. 

Needless to say, poverty, hunger and societal meltdown have not prevented idiotic wars involving Tigre, Uganda, Congo, Sudan, Somalia, Eritrea etcetera.
Broad brush-strokes, to be sure. But broad brush-strokes are often the way that history paints its gaudier, if more decisive, chapters. Japan, China, Russia, Korea, Poland, Germany, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia in the 20th century have endured worse broad brush-strokes than almost any part of Africa.

‘Virtually all give aid … to Africa … with its vast savanas and its lush pastures’ … meanwhile Africa’s peoples are outstripping their resources:
They are now -- one way or another -- virtually all giving aid to or investing in Africa, whereas Africa, with its vast savannahs and its lush pastures, is giving almost nothing to anyone, apart from AIDS.
Meanwhile, Africa's peoples are outstripping their resources, and causing catastrophic ecological degradation. By 2050, the population of Ethiopia will be 177 million; the equivalent of France, Germany and Benelux today, but located on the parched and increasingly Protein-free wastelands of the Great Rift Valley.
So, how much sense does it make for us actively to increase the adult population of what is already a vastly over-populated, environmentally devastated and economically dependent country?
How much morality is there in saving an Ethiopian child from starvation today, for it to survive to a life of brutal circumcision, poverty, hunger, violence and sexual abuse, resulting in another half-dozen such wide-eyed children, with comparably jolly little lives ahead of them?
Of course, it might make you feel better, which is a prime reason for so much charity.! But that is not good enough.
For self-serving generosity has been one of the curses of Africa. It has sustained political systems which would otherwise have collapsed.
It prolonged the Eritrean-Ethiopian war by nearly a decade. It is inspiring Bill Gates' programme to rid the continent of malaria, when, in the almost complete absence of personal self-discipline, that disease is one of the most efficacious forms of population-control now operating.
If his programme is successful, tens of millions of children who would otherwise have died in infancy will survive to adulthood, he boasts.
Oh good: then what? I know, let them all come here (to Ireland) or America. Yes, that's an idea.

Background:
In July 2008, Myers wrote the above article arguing that providing aid to Africa only results in increasing its population, and its problems.This produced strong reactions, with the Immigrant Council of Ireland making an official complaint to the Garda Síochána alleging incitement to hatred. Hans Zomer of Dóchas, an association of NGOs, and another complainant, took a complaint to the Press Council on the grounds that it breached four principles of the Council's Code of Practice: 1) Accuracy, 3) Fairness and Honesty, 4) Respect for Rights, and 8) Incitement to Hatred. In their case details the Press Council said beginning with the headline “Africa is giving nothing to anyone – apart from AIDS”, the mode of presentation was marked by rhetorical extravagance and hyperbole which used the failings of some to stigmatise whole societies, employing a level of generalisation that was distorting and seriously insulting to Africans as a whole and that -  In addition the article resorted, in several instances, to language that was gratuitously offensive and was, in the view of the Press Council, likely to cause grave offence to people throughout sub-Saharan Africa and to the many Africans in particular who are now resident in Ireland. hey concluded that the article did breach Principle 8 of the Code of Practice in that it was likely to cause grave offence. It did not, however, find reason to conclude that it was likely to stir-up hatred or that there was any intention to do so.They also concluded that the Council did not have clear grounds on which to make any findings in relation to the complaints under Principles 1, 3 & 4 of the Code.
