So gaan dit in die nuwe SA. Mense, sluit nou aan by groepe of organisasies wat opleiding bied in veiligheid. Wat na ons mense se belange en veiligheid omsien. Jou en jou familie se veiligheid is in jou hande. Niemand anders gaan na jou veiligheid omsien behalwe jyself – moenie verwagtinge koester van oorsese lande nie! Om iemand te martel en met kookwater te verbrand is onmenslik wreed en diegene wat dit doen het geen menslikheid nie. Toegedraai in ‘n handdoek (blinddoek) het hulle die kookwater oor hom uitgegooi. So word daar daagliks van ons mense gemartel en of andersinds uitgewis. Daar is hartseer verhale en inligting oor plaasaanvalle – daar is bykans geen plaasaanval en moord waar daar nie gemartel word nie. Hulle skep behae daarin om te martel, verkrag en te vermoor, laastens word heelwat bewyse uitgebrand.
End of last year –
On 3 December 2018, around 14:00 members of Burgersdorp SAPS arrested two suspects after a farm attack / house robbery occurred at ALFALFA farm in the Burgersdorp district earlier during the day.
It is alleged that three suspects entered the house of Mr Jannie Terburg 81 year old around 11:00. They tied up the domestic worker and two garden workers in the bathroom and when the owner of the farm returned to his house with a farm worker from the veld they were met by the suspects who attacked him and tied him up in the passage. The farm worker was also taken to the bathroom.
They ransacked the house and took several items including a firearm and ammunition. They took off with the victims white Isuzu bakkie and fled the scene. Around 14:00 farmers in the area spotted the victims bakkie in the Burgersdorp vicinity and found it suspicious being driven by an unknown male being accompanied by two unknown passengers. They alerted the police while tracing vehicle.
A chase ensued by SAPS members and police managed to recover the bakkie at Tembisa township. Shots were fired during the chase to deter the suspects. Police managed to arrest one of the suspects at that stage.
A pistol and ammunition was recovered and a bag with a saw and other items was found in the vehicle. The other two suspects managed to run away.
During the afternoon members of the community alerted the police about a suspicious male requesting for assistance in the Tembisa area and noted that he was wounded. Police chased to the scene and arrested the second suspect.
The Cluster Commander Brig Trevor Mey commended the members of the community for their alertness and the quick response of the SAPS members.

SHOCKING – THIS IS UNHUMAN
A spate of farm attacks across South Africa has left rural residents living in fear, after five separate incidents were reported between Tuesday and Thursday morning.

Farm attacks in South Africa: A bad week for the country
This glut of criminal activity follows another attack on a Burgersdorp farmer from earlier in the week. Jan Terburg had boiling water poured over his head by his attackers. The 81-year-old is still receiving treatment at a Bloemfontein medical facility.
Last week, a farmhouse in the Western Cape was a target for attackers, who also spray-painted political slogans on the front door of the Porterville property.
A married couple were beaten, held captive and doused with petrol before Tobie van Schalwyk was able to activate his car alarm with his keys, prompting the three masked assailants to flee. It was also reported that his wife Desiree was sexually assaulted by the gang.
