Could almost 500,000 people be murdered and hardly anyone know about it as a result of silence from the international media? Sure — if it happened in South Africa, after the media’s work there was finished:
In its 2017 South Africa Survey‚ the [Institute of Race Relations] said around 445 835 murders had been recorded in the country between April 1994 and March 2016.
Several farms and houses belonging to whites in the South African town of Coligny (North West Province) have been attacked and burned by mobs of blacks after a local court released two white farmers on US$360 bail after they were falsely accused of murdering a 16-year-old black thief.
THE SIGHT of the room full of blood made the gogo wonder if somebody had slaughtered a pig.
But soon she would make a far more horrifying discovery.
HER SEARCH REVEALED THE HAND OF A SMALL CHILD ON A PLATE.
Then the gogo realised the hand probably belonged to her grandson, who had gone missing on Monday!
Earlier that day, gogo Nontuthuzelo Gwanya (68) from Kwantsila, near Port St Johns, had cooked her grandson’s favourite pumpkin dish.
According to SAPS spokeswoman Warrant Officer Mpho Manyoba‚ the victim wrote in her affidavit that she had stepped out of a night club at around 2am to get fresh air following an argument with her boyfriend.
She was then approached by a car guard who attempted to engage her in conversation‚ but she rebuffed him.
The affidavit states that shortly thereafter‚ she was approached by another man who grabbed her and pushed her up against a wall in an alley.
The car guard then joined the other man‚ and assisted him by holding the victim down.
A newborn baby boy has miraculously survived being buried in a shallow grave at a farm in Paddock during the Easter holiday in KwaZulu-Natal, the South Coast Herald reports.
The 25-year-old mother, originally from Izingolweni, had left the infant among some timber, covered with sand, at her workplace after she gave birth to the baby boy.
