South African whites are being viciously attacked and killed, and a media blackout of the crimes has not helped.
Criminals who are
usually armed with powerful AK-47 military carbines, of which
millions have been left behind in Africa from the local wars of African
independence over the past 20-odd years, have been rampaging across the country with little resistance from the authorities.
This is especially true for farmers, against
whom a campaign seems to have been launched since the end of apartheid in
1992 that has already left 1,048 people dead (26 percent of whom are black farm
workers and their families, and the rest are white commercial farmers and
their family members) from more than 5,500 well-armed military-style attacks
by groups of young black males.
And under South Africa's new gun control
laws, these civilian farmers would no longer be allowed to carry anything
larger than a small handgun to defend themselves from such attacks.
The South African government also is engaged in a deliberate criminalization
campaign in the news media against its commercial farmers, with
media accusations of "racist" acts that, when brought before courts of law
or probed by police, have however been proven to be almost totally
Last year white
farmers were arrested on more than 150 charges ranging from murder to accusations of
extremely racist cruelty against farm workers. Yet only one farmer has thus far
been found guilty of shooting and injuring a farm worker in anger, for which
this white farmer was imprisoned for three years.
In all the other cases,
the "witnesses" who made claims to the news media simply could not be
found, or when cross-examined in law courts, were found to be lying.
Frequently, the armed attacks against commercial farm families are
carried out with unusual extremes of cruelty: especially the white men often
are tortured for hours, with slow barbed-wire strangulation and deliberate
mutilation of their sexual parts while they are alive - and the female
members of the white farmers' families are subjected to vicious gang rapes
from which they are frequently left infected with HIV-AIDS, including very
small children. (More than 55 percent of the South African population has been
identified with HIV-AIDS, according to the United Nations.)
Because much of this kind of news remains totally unreported outside the nation because of the South African government's deliberate ban on publication of such
crime statistics since July 2000, much of the news focus of censorbug.com has
remained on the commercial agricultural situation in that country at the
The crime wave across South Africa has led to economic disaster. South Africa used to be self-sufficient and an exporter of food.
This African country is one of the continent's very few that has
always managed to feed its growing population, although it had only 60,000
farmers in 1991. But now South Africa has had to start
importing staple foods such as maize for the first time in its history, and
this year fewer than 40,000 commercial farmers remain. South
Africa now has an estimated population of 46 million people.
