The Free State community of Vredefort, South Africa, has been left devastated after a farm murder claimed the life of 71-year-old Dirk Steenkamp (pictured).
As reported by OFM, Steenkamp was attacked at 07:00 on Sunday morning (4.03.2018) when he was inspecting a water pump near his property. A gang attacked him after driving to the farm and proceeded to shoot him.
Steenkamp’s wife raised the alarm shortly after hearing the gunshots, as the attackers fled. She was left unharmed in the incident.
The brutal crime has raised again the issue of farm murders in South Africa.
“The political parties in South Africa have demonstrated their incompetence and absenteeism over the past decades. Of course, the ANC was the dominant factor, but the so-called moderate Democratic Alliance (DA) and the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) of Malema are no better and bear co-responsibility for the failure of the ‘Rainbow nation” – said Gerolf Annemans, the president of a Movement for Nations and Freedom (MENF).
“Some, including myself, dare to call it a silent genocide” – Annemans continued, while commenting on the situation with farm murders in South Africa. On day 66 of 2018 there have been more than 84
#FarmAttacks and 11 murders.
