Please post your support and prayers for Kerryn Roodt

“Kerryn Roodt was robbed and shot while on a week’s holiday down at the coast,” writes her friend Mariette Van Antwerp on :”#/group.php?gid=139969403143

”Kerryn and her boyfriend came down to the South Coast for a week to have fun and enjoy a week’s holiday,” writes Mrs Van Antwerp, who is from Amanzimtoti, Kwa-Zulu.

“They were busy packing when four young men aged between 14 to 17 years climbed over the wall and held them at gunpoint.

“They robbed everything they had with them even took their shoes they had on. The attackers told Kerryn they are going to rape her and then “when they are finished with her they are going to rape her boyfriend as well”.

They told him not to look while they are busy raping her as they are going to shoot him if he did.
They started licking and kissing her all over her body – but something alarmed them and they went outside as they walked out one said don’t shoot, its going to make a noise.
But two came back kissed her again and said : “Goodbye my beautiful young white baby” and shot her. They fired a shot at her boyfriend as well but they missed him. Kerryn now is paralysed and needs all the prayer and support she can get…”#/group.php?gid=139969403143

The Elim Mission Massacre: Lest We Forget

Posted in Uncategorized on 29 September, 2009 by rudiprinsloo

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” – George Santayana

We received an exceptionally poignant response to the earlier posting on the Hanyani Disaster. I felt it befitting to share this response with a larger audience. At the same time, I want to draw your attention to the Elim Mission Massacre, which took place in Rhodesia in June 1978. You might ask what relevance any of this has. It goes to show the inherent capacity black Africa has to commit the most barbaric acts of violence against whites. This is the type of fate waiting to befall many South Africans.

We would do very well to NEVER forget the treachery and barbarism we have lived with for over three hundred years, and the extremely thin veneer of civility that covers it.

To quote a well known verse from Laurence Binyons poem “The Fallen”:

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

And that is our duty. To remember them. All of them.

From the frontier farmer killed by the Xhosa in 1700 to Piet Retief to those killed in the Church Street Bombing to the farmer and his wife who were killed last night. Every drop of our nations blood that has been spilled by these stone-age savages will be remembered.


Our benevolence and kindness is turning into mourning. When it is finished; when the white man has no more tears to shed; when he has no more good to give; when all his goodness and kindness has been stripped from him; when he has nothing left but hate; there will be a recompense; blood for blood, tear for tear, blow for blow, bruise for bruise, cut for cut.

We will remember…

We will repay…

Be warned, the following article is graphic, heart wrenching and achingly similar to the atrocities being meted out on our people everyday, 31 years later. Do not proceed further if you cannot stomach the truth.

On the night of June 23, 1978, Elim Mission in the Rhodesian Eastern Highlands was subjected to the worst massacre of missionaries yet experienced. Terry Blocksidge reported in the Sunday Mail (Salisbury).

Eight British missionaries and four young children – including a three-week-old baby – were bayoneted to death by terrorists on Rhodesia’s Eastern border on Friday night in the worst massacre of whites since the six-year-old war began.

Three of the missionaries were men and the others women.

A sixth woman was stabbed and beaten and left for dead. She staggered 300 m into the freezing Vumba bush to spend the night before being found semi-conscious by security forces yesterday. Despite intensive care in a Salisbury hospital she subsequently died.

The gruesome murders, by a group of eight to 10 terrorists, happened at Emmanuel Mission School – 15 km south-east of Umtali and 8 km from the Mozambique border – once used as the Eagle boarding school.

The dead, who belonged to the Elim Pentecostal Church, were:

* Mr. Peter McCann (30), his wife, Sandra (also 30), son Phillip (6) and daughter Joy (5).

* The Rev. Phillip Evans (29), his wife, Suzan (35), and their daughter Rebecca (4).

* Mr. Roy Lynn (37), his wife, Joyce (36), and their daughter Pamela Grace. She would have been three weeks old yesterday.

* Catherine Picken (55) and Elizabeth Wendy Hamilton- White (37).

* Miss Mary Fisher (28).

Most of the women had been sexually assaulted, and one mutilated.

The children had been dragged from their beds. Two children were in yellow pyjamas, one with a red dressing gown, and a third in a flowery nightdress.

One child had her tiny thumbs clenched in her palms.

Even hardened security men were stunned by the bloody scene and stood around silently. “The quiet is uncanny”, said one.

Mr. Brian Chapman, director of the Church in Rhodesia and South Africa, visited the scene yesterday. He said: “We saw no humanity here.”

The massacre began shortly before 8.30 p.m. when the white families were forced by the terrorists from their homes and classrooms, and marched to a playing field.

Near the sports pavilion, about 400 m from the main school, they were split into groups, then beaten with lengths of wood and logs, and stabbed.

When security forces reached the scene yesterday, the full horror on the cold, mist-and-rain shrouded Vumba mountainside confronted them:

A mother, beaten to death, lay with her young baby. The baby had also been savagely beaten.

Their arms stretched out to each other, their hands resting an inch apart. The child’s hand was clenched.

The mother had a hand squeezed tightly around her engagement ring, turned into her palm, as she reached for her baby in her dying moments.

Nearby, another woman had died from an axe-wound – the weapon still protruded from her shoulder and two men, one with his hands tied behind his back, lay beaten and slashed to death.

A blood-soaked chunk of wood had been dropped near to them.

Three children lay in a pitiful huddle, with two women’s bodies next to them.

Some had raised their arms to defend themselves from the brutal blows.

The reactions of the media in general were predictable, with many newspapers being singularly outspoken. The Citizen of South Africa had this to say on June 26:

Non-violence in many ways is being practised by the Patriotic Front. I asked one of their commanders, Tongogara, what they actually do in Rhodesia, and he said they’re not doing much fighting, except when they are fired upon, or when the Rhodesian defence forces find them and try to run them out.

“Basically what they are doing is moving around the villages and conducting political seminars and singing songs.”

So says Mr. Andrew Young, United States Ambassador to the United Nations, in a recent interview with the London Times.

This weekend, in the worst atrocity committed against white civilians in the history of Rhodesia’s six-year war, terrorists of Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe National Liberation Army hacked and battered to death almost the entire white staff and their families at the Elim Pentacostal Mission in the Eastern border mountains.

Mr. Young is asked: “Does Mr. Mugabe strike you as a violent man?”

He replies: “Not at all, he’s a very gentle man. In fact, one of the ironies of the whole struggle is that I can’t imagine Joshua Nkomo, or Robert Mugabe, ever pulling the trigger on a gun to kill anyone. I doubt that they ever have…. The violent people are Smith’s people and hopefully they won’t be around for the new Zimbabwe.”

This weekend, when local and international journalists arrived at the scene of the massacre 15 km from Umtali and less than 7 km from the Mozambique border, the mutilated and blood-stained bodies of three men, four women and five children – including a three-week-old baby – were lying as they had been found that morning.

Mr. Young is asked how he gets on with Mr. Mugabe.

He replies: “I find that I am fascinated by his intelligence, by his dedication. The only thing that frustrates me about Robert Mugabe is that he is so damned incorruptible…. The problem is he was educated by the Jesuits, and when you get the combination of a Jesuit and a Marxist kind of philosophy merging in one person, you’ve got a hell of a guy to deal with.”

This weekend, one of the newspapermen who flew to the scene of the massacre reported: “The bodies lay in clusters round the school’s cricket pavilion. The victims had all been foully abused. All but one of the four adult women had been raped and left semi-naked on the grass.”

Mr. Young tells of the “deep-seated humanism” of a young man who told him: “I started killing at 14 and when you kill and when you realize you could be killed for something that you believe in, you learn that there’s nothing more precious and valuable than human life.”

This weekend, at the scene of the massacre, correspondents reported that the “victims were beyond help, with axe wounds scarring their bodies, bayonet thrusts deep in their backs, and skulls crushed by knobkerries or lengths of thick wood.

Shocked and angry troops viewed the carnage and quietly cursed the terrorists. One man had tears in his eyes as he muttered: ‘The bastards. They are nothing better than animals. How could they do this?

Yet these are the terrorists whom men like Andy Young support.

The tragedy of Africa is not just that such savagery still persists.

It is that terrorism has been given respectability. That the men with the guns are regarded as freedom fighters, as liberators, when they are no more than thugs and animals.

When will the World Council of Churches appreciate that it must stop aiding men who kill and maim the innocents?

When will our local political priests accept that it is time to condemn, instead of support, such forces of evil?

When will Mr. Andy Young and people like him realize that every man, woman or child who dies at Elim or at Kolwezi, or anywhere else on this dark continent, is a victim of insensate hate and barbarism?

When will they back the forces of peace, of tolerance, of goodwill, instead of supporting the brutal and beastly terrorists?

‘The worst day of our lives’

Posted in Uncategorized on 29 September, 2009 by rudiprinsloo

September 28 2009 at 07:41AM

By Jacques Breytenbach

“They killed my sister for a cellphone, and also nearly killed my brother-in-law. It was the worst day of our lives.”

These were the words of a distraught Hane Rumsey, whose sister Isabel Schonken died on Saturday after being shot in the heart on a smallholding in Welbekend, east of Pretoria.

Her husband, Lars, is undergoing surgery at the Life Little Company of Mary Hospital in Groenkloof today. A metal plate will be surgically inserted into his skull in an attempt to repair the open fracture he suffered after being hit over the head with a blunt object during the attack.

At about 2.30am on Saturday, Schonken’s eldest daughter, Sonija Smit, who lives with her husband Thinus in a house on the same plot as her parents, received a call from her father, telling her there were robbers in their house.

Thinus went to investigate. But the robbers had already fled with Schonken’s cellphone, leaving Thinus with the grim task of assessing the 56-year-old Lars’s injuries.

When Thinus found Lars, he was bleeding profusely from a deep head wound and asking where his wife Isabel was.

Thinus found 55-year-old Schonken lying dead on the floor of the guest toilet, near the front door of the house, shot through the chest. “My first priority was to get Lars to the hospital as fast as I could,” Thinus said, adding that after he notified the police, he put his injured father-in-law into his car and drove to Wilgers Hospital.

Rumsey, who also lives in a cottage on the property, said there was an attempted break-in two weeks ago. She said that on Saturday the whole family had been caught off guard. “I did not hear a thing throughout the whole incident – not a gunshot, or a dog barking, or anyone screaming. I only woke up just before Sonija phoned me. It was the strangest thing,” Rumsey said.

Lars was beaten badly with what seems to have been a wooden object with some sort of metal tip.

At some stage during the attack, Lars regained consciousness, opened the safe and shot at one of the robbers. It has not been confirmed yet if the robber was injured but a source close to the investigation said Lars had hit and injured one of them.

Rumsey said it appears as if Schonken had fallen asleep in front of the television and was woken by a gunshot. She added that despite electric fences and motion detection alarms on the property, the robbers managed to gain entry into the house.

“These guys knew exactly what they were doing. They have been watching our movements on the plot for a while now,” she said.

Rumsey said her sister was a “very” strong character.

“It is a great loss to the family. The family is trying to be strong through this difficult time. All we can do is take it a day at a time,” Rumsey said.

Smit said they were still waiting for the autopsy results.

“It’s a very difficult time for us children. But we are dealing with it as best we can,” she said.

Schonken leaves behind her eldest child and only son, Francois, and three daughters, Smit, Karin, and Alma.

Police spokeswoman Inspector Sanet Lourens said no arrests had been made.

Lourens said Bronkhorstspruit police had asked for and received three more police patrol cars from Pretoria to clamp down on the recent spate of violent crime in the rural areas around the city’s east.

“We are monitoring the situation and want to ensure the greater Bronkhorstspruit, Boschkop, Cullinan and Welbekend communities that we are doing our best to bring the perpetrators of these violent crimes to book,” said Lourens.

Meanwhile, Barry Bateman reports that Robert Anderson, 47, who was shot during a robbery at his home near Bronkhorstspruit, is “doing very well” following surgery on Friday. Anderson’s son James, 18, was shot dead in the incident which took place at about 1am on Friday. Anderson was shot several times in the upper body.

James ran to his parents’ bedroom and struggled with the gunman. A second gunman shot him in the back. He died on the scene.

No arrests have been made.

Hijackers kill stroke survivor

Posted in Uncategorized on 29 September, 2009 by rudiprinsloo

September 29 2009 at 06:42AM

By Barry Bateman

A man partially paralysed by a stroke was shot in front of his wife when he could not open the passenger side door of the vehicle three gunmen were hijacking.

Thugs shot Henry Vorster, 57, through the neck and then through his chest moments after shooting his wife Magriet, 58, outside their Willows townhouse complex at about 11pm on Friday.

A stroke about four years ago paralysed Vorster down his left side, making him almost unable to walk and rendering his left arm useless.

‘They shot him in the neck’
Police arrested the three suspects in Soshanguve on Saturday while driving the stolen red VW Polo but have yet to link them to the hijacking and murder.

Magriet said the couple left her mother’s house in Pretoria North after a braai late on Friday night. “When we arrived at the complex I noticed a car near the gate but couldn’t see anyone inside the it,” she said from her hospital bed.

“I pressed the button to open the security gate and the next minute there was this guy next to the car. He shouted that it was a hijacking and that we must get out of the car or he would shoot,” she said.

Magriet said she immediately tried to get out, but the gunman smashed the window and fired a shot which struck her right hand. “As I got out of the car he shot me again in the leg. I screamed at my husband to get out of the car but he could not open the door anyway because his left side is paralysed.

“The man pulled him over the car’s centre console and out of the driver’s door. They shot him in the neck, but before throwing him on the ground they shot him through the heart,” she said.

Magriet said she would see the men again in court
Magriet, fighting back tears, explained how her husband was struggling to breathe. “I realised he was not getting air and rolled him over. I wanted to get my bag so I could use my phone to call for help, but the men had stolen it too. I started screaming at the top of my lungs,” she said.

A neighbour across the road heard the commotion. He spotted the suspects and gave chase while another neighbour called for help.

The neighbour who chased after the suspects soon returned. He loaded the injured couple into his car and rushed them to Wilgers Hospital. “Doctors tried to resuscitate Henry for about an hour and a half, but he died,” she said. Soshanguve police arrested the three suspects on Saturday after a shootout.

Police Inspector Mike Mbewe said police spotted the red Polo and gave chase.

He said a shootout ensued during which one of the suspects was wounded. “He is in hospital under police guard.

“The men were arrested and charged with being in possession of a stolen vehicle. They still need to be linked to the hijack and murder,” he said.

Magriet said her two children, a son and daughter, were struggling to come to terms with the murder. She said she could not understand why the suspects would shoot her husband who clearly posed no threat. “He could not do anything on his own. He was still adapting to the stroke. I had to bath him and put his clothes on for him,” she said.

Magriet said she would see the men again in court. “I will testify in their trial,” she said.

77-jarige verkrag en beroof

Posted in Uncategorized on 29 September, 2009 by rudiprinsloo

2009-09-29 01:47

Virginia Keppler

‘n 77-jarige vrou is die afgelope naweek in haar huis in ’n aftreeoord in die ooste van Pretoria verkrag.

Die vrou van Garsfontein is Saterdag om 17:45 deur ’n man in haar erf oorval, langer as ’n uur aangehou en twee keer verkrag. Sy is ook telkens gewurg totdat sy byna haar bewussyn verloor het. Haar aanvaller het met R500 en ’n klein radio gevlug.

Sers. Lynnette Erasmus, polisiewoordvoerder, het gesê die vrou is oorval terwyl sy op haar stoep gesit en haar voëls brood gevoer het.

“Volgens die tannie het die voorval plaasgevind kort nadat sy haar motor by haar werktuigkundige gaan haal het.

“Sy is die eerste keer by die aftreeoord se hek deur die man lastig geval terwyl sy gewag het dat die hek moes oopgaan sodat sy kon inry. Die man het haar gevra vir kos en geld.

“Sy het gesê sy het nie en terwyl sy by die hek ingery het, het die man aangehou om haar lastig te val,” het Erasmus gesê.

Erasmus het gesê toe die vrou halfpad deur die hek is, het die hek toegegaan en haar motor getref. Dit het veroorsaak dat die hek ontspoor het.

“’n Paartjie wat daar verbygeloop het, het aan die tannie gesê sy moet inry en iemand gaan kry om die hek te kom regmaak en het belowe hulle sal daar staan totdat dié persoon opdaag.

“Hulle het woord gehou.”

Erasmus het gesê die vrou is daarna in haar huis in en het haar voëls gevoer.

“Die volgende oomblik het dieselfde man voor haar gestaan en haar gegryp en in die huis ingedwing.”

Volgens Erasmus het die man die gordyne toegemaak en gevra vir “baie geld”.

“Die tannie het gesê hy kan die R500 in haar handsak in die kamer kry. Hy het haar daarna gewurg en toe in die badkamer en slaapkamer verkrag.

“Die tannie het gesê sy was deurentyd bang dat hy haar met haar eie twee skerp messe wat in die kombuis was, sou steek.”

Sy word tans in die aftreeoord se hoësorgeenheid behandel.

Erasmus het gesê dit is onbekend hoe die man by die aftreeoord ingekom het.

Mnr. Nathi Mthethwa, minister van polisie, het onlangs tydens die bekendmaking van die jongste beskikbare misdaadstatistieke gesê huisrooftogte het landwyd met 27,3% toegeneem, terwyl seksuele misdrywe met 12% toegeneem het.

In Gauteng het seksuele misdrywe van 15 074 in die vorige verslagjaar tot 19106 toegeneem, ’n styging van byna 27%.

Mnr. Nantes Kelder, hoof van gemeenskapsveiligheid van die burgerregte-inisiatief AfriForum, het die regering se besluit bevraagteken om nie ’n onderskeid tussen seksuele misdrywe te tref nie. Hy het gesê die misdaadstatistieke toon dat die regering nie genoeg doen in die stryd teen ernstige geweldmisdaad nie.

Mthethwa het vroeër gesê die polisie moet sy maatreëls om dié misdrywe te bestry, verskerp.

Stuur ons af op ‘n blanke volksmoord?

Posted in Uncategorized on 27 September, 2009 by rudiprinsloo

Deur Dan Roodt

Sondag 13 September 2009

Vandeesweek het ds. Nico Smith, ‘n soort sikofant van oorle Beyers Naudé, ‘n kat in die hoenderhok gesmyt met sy stuk in Beeld waarin hy blankes tot onderdanigheid aan hul nuwe swart heersers maan. So nie, sê Smith, gaan dieselfde lot ons tref as die sowat miljoen Franse Algeryne wat almal sak en pak met net die klere aan hul lywe hul land moes verlaat toe die moederland, Frankryk, hulle in die steek gelaat het en sy militêre magte verwyder het.

Nico Smith stel dit in ‘n neutedop só: “Ons het geen keuse nie as om lojale Suid-Afrikaners te word en te vergeet van ons minderheidsregte, ons taal en kultuur, ons aansprake op die beëindiging van regstellende aksie en die herinstelling van die doodstraf.”

Met ander woorde, ons moet aanvaar dat ons en ons kinders en waarskynlik ons kleinkinders, vir altyd tweederangse burgers onder ‘n swart regering gaan wees wat ons bloot gaan verdra na gelang van ons onderdanigheid en die “lojaliteit” wat ons jeens hom gaan betoon.

Tereg het Tim du Plessis, die redakteur van Beeld wat deesdae toenemend ontnugter met sy base by Naspers se utopiese voorstelling van “Suid-Afrika se wonderlike demokrasie” raak, ‘n teenargument geopper wat ek reeds jare lank ophaal: wat het hul onderdanigheid die blankes van Zimbabwe en veral die Commercial Farmers Union gebaat? Hulle het agteroor gebuig, hulle was lojaal en inskiklik, maar op die ou end het Mugabe dit as swakheid geïnterpreteer. Hulle grond is summier onteien en van die eertydse groot blanke bevolking van etlike honderde duisende mense in die voormalige Rhodesië het daar net mooi niks oorgebly nie.

Vyftien jaar nadat die Broederbond, die Nasionale Party en veral Nasionale Pers met sterre in hul oë Afrodemokrasie verwelkom het, lyk dit asof die werklikheid soos ‘n swartman met ‘n AK-47 in iemand se inrypad opdoem.

Smith weet waarskynlik nie veel van die Franse geskiedenis nie, want wat hy nie noem nie, is dat die Algerynse kwessie ‘n geweldige politieke twispunt in Frankryk self tussen Links en Regs ontketen het. Uiteindelik het Frankryk die “oorsese Franse” in die rug gesteek om die land self van ‘n moontlike burgeroorlog te red. Die Franse Algeryne kon die militêre stryd gewen het, net soos Suid-Afrika die ANC militêr kon vernietig het indien die ou regering maar net oor die politieke wil beskik het om dit te doen. Wat het die lugmag destyds met sy 300 Mirages en uitstekend opgeleide vlieëniers verhoed om die ANC se kamp naby Lusaka met die grond gelyk te maak?

Op dieselfde manier was die Portugese in Angola besig om die militêre geveg teen die MPLA te wen toe ‘n nuwe linkse en revolusionêre regering ná die sogenaamde Angelierrevolusie in Portugal aan bewind gekom het. Daardie regering het sowel Angola as Mosambiek aan die radikale, Marxistiese “bevrydingsbewegings” oorhandig, wat agterna alle blanke eiendom onteien, blanke vroue verkrag en die Portugese holderstebolder uit die land laat vlug het met dít wat hulle in hul tasse en hul motors kon laai.

Afrikaners en blankes beskik oor ‘n moontlike voordeel in dié sin dat ons nie meer oor ‘n moederland soos Frankryk of Portugal beskik wat ons kan verraai nie. Ook Brittanje, wat tradisioneel teen Afrikanerselfbeskikking en -vryheid gekant was en wou toesien dat ons deur die Zoeloes en Xhosas oorheers word, is besig om ekonomies en militêr te taan as gevolg van sy Noordseeolie wat opraak. Brittanje kan dus nie meer sy wil op ons afdwing soos hy in die laat tagtigerjare gedoen het toe hy die radikale ANC as enigste politieke erfgenaam vir Suid-Afrika voorgehou het nie.

Die feit dat Nico Smith nou die moontlikheid van blanke vlugtelinge wat met net die klere aan hul lywe die land sal moet verlaat aan ons voorhou – en dit nogal in Beeld – wil vir ons sê dat die aftakelingsproses eintlik al ver gevorder is. Wat Nico Smith aan ons oordra, is: julle het nie meer enige regte nie, die grondwet was ‘n foefie van De Klerk en kie. om julle te kry om van die weermag afstand te doen en nou is julle magtelose vlugtelinge in jul eie land. Aanvaar dit en wees onderdanig. Eintlik is julle slawe van die swart regime en te onnosel om dit in te sien; vandaar julle gemor oor minderheidsregte, die afskaffing van regstellende aksie en meer staatsbeskerming teen geweldsmisdaad.

Charles Nqakula, die vorige minister van veiligheid en sekuriteit, het dit al voorheen kliphard in die parlement gesê: “Verlaat die land as jy oor misdaad wil kla!”

Ná die Brandon-Huntley-geval in Kanada het blanke volksmoord egter skielik baie aktueel geraak. Indien ‘n Westerse regering – en dit nogal in ‘n liberale land soos Kanada – die gedagte van blankes wat deur swartes op grond van hul ras vervolg word, ernstig opneem, dan prikkel dit nogal die verbeelding.

Selfs Thabo Mbeki, Meneer Swartnasionalisme self, het nou die dag die V-woord gebruik toe hy gesê het dat die huidige rasgeoriënteerde denke van die ANC op volksmoord mag uitloop. Allerlei webwerwe waarin blanke, Afrikaner- en Boerevolksmoord bekla word, skiet by die dag soos paddastoele op, wat vir ons aandui dat die temperatuur in die land besig is om te styg.

Mense soos Nico Smith en Julius Malema is eintlik vir ons ‘n aanwins, want hulle praat reguit. Oor die afgelope anderhalf dekade en meer is ons so bewierook met Amerikaanse en Britse begrippe van rasseharmonie, multikulturalisme en natuurlik Tutu se “reënboognasie” wat hy net so by Jesse Jackson geplagiariseer het, dat baie van ons mense hulself steeds in ‘n gekkeparadys bevind. Hulle dink dat Suid-Afrika skielik ‘n Skandinawiese land geword het, ‘n eksperiment in menseregte en verdraagsaamheid, terwyl niks eintlik hier verander het van die dae toe Piet Retief en sy manne doodgemartel is en die Voortrekkerbabas se harsings agterna teen die wawiele uitgemoker is nie.

Die sogenaamde “debat” rondom ‘n moontlike bedreiging vir blankes wat daar nou in die Nasperskoerante plaasvind – ek sien Harald Pakendorf en Max du Preez kef ook vandag halfhartig in Rapport agterna – sal binne ‘n week of twee weer oorwaai. Daarna sal ons weer gebreinspoel word met al ons menseregte onder die wonderlike grondwet, wat regters Hlope en Motata dalkies vir ons gaan bewaar, en hoe dankbaar ons teenoor die grote ANC behoort te wees.

Nico Smith mag, soos Max du Preez en Christi van der Westhuizen en al die ander ekstremiste wat vandag in dié deurmekaar land as hoofstroomjoernaliste gereken word, ‘n malletjie wees. Maar hy is ook nie só mal nie. Gerugte wil dit hê dat hy lankal nie meer in Mamelodi tussen sy swart lidmate woon nie, maar in Pretoria-Oos tussen blankes. Met sy een voet in die swart wêreld en die soort mentaliteit wat daar geld, wil Smith vir ons waarsku dat ons nie moet dink dat ons met ons huidige “voordele” in die vorm van ons huise, plase en ander besittings, permanent gaan wegkom nie. Een of ander tyd, as ons houtgerus en op ons swakste is, gaan die ANC eenvoudig à la Mugabe die finale bedryf in sy bevrydingsdrama aankondig en sal ons soos die Algeryne uit die land gesit word of eenvoudig op ‘n groot skaal uitgewis word. Maar die paaie lughawe toe mag verstop wees en daar sal nie genoeg vliegtuie wees om ‘n lugbrug vir vier miljoen blankes te verskaf nie. Vandaar dus die volksmoordscenario wat nou skielik by almal – selfs die liberales – begin spook.

Dominee Nico Smith is waarskynlik heel korrek as hy in Beeld skryf:

“Sou dit tot ’n massa-aanval op al wat wit is, oorgaan, sit die wit mense vasgekeer soos rotte in ’n val. Hulle het geen moederland wat skepe sal stuur om hulle te verwyder nie. Hulle sal ’n massaslagting moet verduur.

Maar wat dan van die leër en die polisie? Waarom sou hulle vir die wit mense ter beskerming intree as hulle 15 jaar lank nog net kritiek vanuit die wit oord moes verduur? En wat van die VSA en die Verenigde Nasies?

Of hulle ter wille van vier miljoen wit ‘rassiste’ hulle aansien by die hele Afrika op die spel sal wil plaas, is hoogs te betwyfel.”

Ons moet onder geen illusie verkeer nie: die Britte, die Amerikaners met hul swart president, die Franse, die Duitsers, selfs die Hollanders wat nou al hoe meer na regs swenk, voel vere vir ons. Hulle sal hande gevou sit indien daar hier ‘n menseslagting teen blankes op die skaal van Rwanda – daardie ander “wonderwerk” uit 1994 – sou plaasvind. Al wat die Verenigde Nasies en die Veiligheidsraad sal bydra, sal ‘n debat wees oor die vraag of ons dit verdien, aldan nie. Miskien sal hulle – soos in Zimbabwe – na afloop ‘n paar sakke mieliemeel vir die swart armes stuur wat nou sonder hul wit boere en voedselprodusente moet klaarkom.

Maar vir ons sal hulle geen vinger verroer nie. Dis die ongelukkige – en harde – waarheid. Ons is suiwer op onsself aangewese.

Sodra ‘n mens egter onder hierdie verskriklike besef kom, begin die geskiedenis baie hard met jou praat. Was ons nie nog altyd aan die genade van Afrika se oorlogsugtige stamme uitgelewer nie? Binnekort verskyn daar by PRAAG ‘n heruitgawe van Paul Kruger se biografie deur D.W. Krüger. Ek hoop dat soveel as moontlik mense dit gaan lees. Want gedurende die hele negentiende eeu is ons aan die een kant deur die Britte en aan die ander kant deur Silkaats, Dingaan, Makapaan, Mosjesj en allerlei moorddadige swart leiers en hul volgelinge geteister. Gewoonlik het die Britte ook swartes teen ons opgesteek en terseldertyd enige kruitinvoere deur Boere via hul hawens in Natal en die Kaap verbied.

Hoe meer dinge verander, hoe meer bly hulle dieselfde. Oor die afgelope 250 jaar en meer is ons lewens nog feitlik elke dag bedreig. Ons leef nog altyd onder Damokles se swaard en die feit dat ons in 1994, danksy die wonderlike insigte van mnr. De Klerk en die spul kruipers waarmee hy hom omring het, ons weermag verloor het, is ‘n terugslag, maar nog nie ‘n ramp nie.

Die ANC is ‘n oorlogsparty. Sy hele denke, retoriek en sin vir intimidasie en geweldsdreigemente, is deurtrek van oorlogsug. Wat Nico Smith ook vir ons probeer sê, is dat indien daar ooit vrede in Suid-Afrika gaan wees – hoewel dit nooit ‘n geweldlose vrede gaan wees nie – sal dit geskied op voorwaarde dat ons daagliks voor ons heersers moet neerkniel en onsself moet verneder. Immers sien hulle nie, anders as wat mnr. De Klerk en die Nasperskoerante ons wil wysmaak, 1994 as ‘n “onderhandelde skikking” nie, maar as ‘n verowering.

Ons is verower en die verowerde beskik oor geen regte nie, allermins die reg op eiendom, op taal en kultuur, om van gelykheid nie eens te praat nie. Dit is hoe die ANC en waarskynlik ten minste die helfte van die swartes in die land – veral dié wat steeds aan die Ooskus woon – dink.

Wat het Paul Kruger-hulle ná 1877 gedoen toe sir Theophilus Shepstone en die Britte hul land geannekseer het? Hulle het begin weier om belastings te betaal. Dit het vanself ‘n plofbare situasie geskep wat op oorlog uitgeloop het.

In teenstelling met dominee Nico Smith, dink ek nie dis nou die tyd om briek aan te draai en die swartmag minder met kritiek en klagtes te irriteer nie. Dis juis nou die tyd om hulle te druk dat hulle oë traan.

Deur magte van buite, die Britte, Swede en VN met hul sanksies en aanstook van terreur in ons land – asook deur De Klerk se verskriklike kortsigtigheid – is ons in hierdie situasie gedompel. Ons het hierdie stryd en hierdie oorlog nie gekies nie; ander het dit oor ons gebring.

Ons is magteloos, maar ook nie so magteloos nie. Ons was nog altyd ‘n minderheid en ons het nog nooit in ons geskiedenis – behalwe vir ‘n dekade of twee toe P.W. Botha minister van verdediging en later president was – behoorlike wapens gehad nie. Nietemin het ons telkens as dit nodig was en ons in ‘n hoek gedryf was, met die hulp van Bo, oorwin. Al moet ons nou soos die wiskundenavorser in die rolprent Straw Dogs met potte warm kookolie vanuit ons huise veg, veg sal ons.

Vele ANC-woordvoerders soos Mokaba of Malema het nou al soveel keer met geweld gedreig dat ek begin dink hulle bluf net. Dominee Nico Smith dink kennelik hulle is ernstig, maar of hulle bluf of gaan aanval, maak eintlik nie saak nie. Want ons situasie gaan nie verander nie.

En solank ons in hierdie situasie van magteloosheid en uitgelewerdheid verkeer, sal ons op ons hoede moet wees. Ek wil nie soos die Boeremag klink nie en assosieer my ook nie met aggressiewe en onwettige pogings om die grondwetlike orde te verander nie, maar ons moet oor ‘n “gebeurlikheidsplan” beskik vir die dag as die ergste dalk wel plaasvind.

In elk geval ervaar ons tans ‘n graad van geweld en rasseaanvalle wat reeds ‘n volksmoord genoem kan word. Ons hanteer dit verbasend goed, maar moet besef dat dit moontlik net die begin van ‘n groter offensief kan wees.

En daarvoor, in dominee Smith se gevleuelde woorde, moet ons “pas op”.

Julius Malema hou nie van boetes betaal

“Laat ek jou vertel, my vriend, ek het jou en jou apartheidsregime oorwin en ek gaan jou weer verslaan, eens en vir altyd!”

Julius Malema is net so vinnig met sy kar as met sy bek – en hy betaal nie sy spoedkaartjies nie.

Die president van die ANC-jeugliga – alombekend vir sy gladde mond, liefde vir vinnige karre en laatnag-partytjies – het in die laaste twee jaar versuim om 14 boetes vir verkeersoortredings te betaal wat saam R5000 beloop.

En hy’s nie die enigste Jeug-liga-leier wat in die pekel is nie. Die woordvoerder Floyd Shivambu het sedert Augustus verlede jaar 12 onbetaalde boetes agter sy naam waarvoor hy R2625 skuld.

Malema het Vrydagaand oudergewoonte die raskaart uitgepluk toe hy oor sy uitstaande spoedkaartjies uitgevra is.

“Ek ken net revolusie, ek weet niks van motorbestuur nie,” het Malema telefonies vanuit Amerika gesê.

“Laat ek jou vertel, my vriend, ek het jou en jou apartheidsregime oorwin en ek gaan jou weer verslaan, eens en vir altyd!

“Almal van julle saam kan niks aan my doen nie. Jy mors jou tyd.

“Ek is ’n kind van helde en heldinne van die struggle. Ek is nie ’n kind van lafaards en onderdrukkers nie. Ek is nie ’n kind van ’n imperialis nie.

“Ek het koloniseerders verslaan. Ek gaan die kinders van die kinders van die koloniseerders verslaan.”

Hy het nie ontken dat hy uitstaande boetes het nie, maar gevra: “Is jy seker dis ek in die motor? Ken jy ’n kar genaamd ­Julius?”

Malema se inkswart Mercedes- Benz C350 is op 21 September verlede jaar teen ’n spoed van 169km/h op die N1-suid naby Johannesburg afgeneem. Hy’t versuim om die boete van R1100 te betaal.

Net die vorige dag is Malema afgeneem toe hy teen 146km/h gery het. Hy’t hard gerem om spoed te verminder, maar die kamera was te vinnig vir hom.

Sy jongste oortreding was vroeër vandeesmaand toe hy met R750 beboet is.

’n Woordvoerder van die Johannesburgse metropolisie, insp. Edna Mamonyane, het gesê ’n lasbrief vir ’n oortreder se inhegtenisneming word gewoonlik uitgereik indien ’n boete ná 90 dae nog nie betaal is nie, of die vermeende oortreder versuim het om in die hof te verskyn.

Mamonyane het bygevoeg dit kan soms “’n bietjie langer duur” en wou nie uitwei oor Malema nie.

Shivambu het Vrydag gesê hy was onbewus van sy eie en Malema se uitstaande boetes.

“Ek dink jy’s baie verveeld,” het hy by navraag gesê. “Ek weet nie waarvan jy praat nie. Ek kan nie kommentaar lewer voordat ons nie seker gemaak het waar jy die inligting gekry het nie. Jy kon dit in jou kop opgemaak het.”

Shivambu het die foon toe neergesit.

Malema het vroeër vandeesmaand gesê mense wat gal braak oor ministers wat duur rygoed met belastingbetalers se geld koop, is bloot jaloers.

“Om ’n Mercedes-Benz te ry kan nie korrupsie wees nie. As dit is hoe julle korrupsie defi­nieer, is julle net jaloers,” het hy volgens berigte gesê.

– Malema en die adjunkminister van polisie, mnr. Fikile Mbalula, was vandeesweek in die Amerikaanse hoofstad, Washington, DC, om “Suid-Afrika te bevorder en Amerikaners aan te moedig om in die land te belê”.

Die omstrede “Suid-Afrika- week” val saam met die jaarlikse konvensie van die sogenaamde swart koukus van die Amerikaanse kongres.

Dié twee sou ’n aantal vergaderings, asook dinees, ’n wynproe, modevertoning en konsert bygewoon het.

Die Suid-Afrika-week is gereël deur Khabo-Mabe On Time Inc., ’n maatskappy wat bestuur word deur die Suid-Afrikaner mnr. Kennedy Khabo.

Vroeër vanjaar het ’n woordvoerder van die Suid-Afrikaanse ambassade in Washington Khabo beskryf as ’n “gediskrediteerde persoon wie se boeke nie skoon is nie”.

Carte Blanche het verlede jaar onthul die Tshwane-metroraad het meer as R2 miljoen aan dié week bestee en dat dit “niks meer as ’n groot partytjie” was nie.

Die openingsaand verlede jaar is deur net 25 mense bygewoon – van wie tien Tshwane-amptenare was.
