The Afrikaans journalist De Wet Retief wrote in Rapport newspaper about the findings of an extensive survey of the current living conditions of the country's Afrikaner community. This survey, carried out by the "Helping Hand" charity of Solidarity trade union, found that Afrikaners, within 13 years of ANC-hegemony, have now returned to the identical destitution they had been plunged into shortly after the Anglo-Boer war in 1902 right up to the Great Depression of the 1930s.
Now, the housing crisis for the country's 1-million destitute, unemployable Afrikaners again takes on criticial proportions -- this time far worse than their situation during the Great Depression, warns Dr Dawie Theron of the Helping Hand Fund - which is sponsored by Solidarity Trade Union's membership.
"Drive through Danville in the Pretoria district, through the Daspoort tunnel to Booysens, Pretoria-Gardens and Daspoort," writes Rapport.
"The size of the plots are all about the same, but look over the fences and you see the Wendy Houses, the shacks, and the tents housing the Afrikaner destitute families all stuffed in behind the main houses."And these are only a few examples of how the face of poverty has changed in South Africa.
"In fact a large, new Poor Afrikaner problem - with the identical squatter towns seen just after the Anglo-Boer War and during the Great Depression, when people migrated in large numbers from the countryside to the cities, is developing once again."
"It's no longer unusual to see Afrikaners begging, and according to the youngest official statistics from 2006, there were 900,000 unemployed Afrikaners in South Africa living in total destitution, with no incomes at all.The SA regime denies food-aid to empoverished Afrikaners - claiming that they belong to the 'previously advantaged class' and thus often do not 'qualify' - even children born after 1994, after apartheid.
2,300 Afrikaner farmers murdered - only 13,000 remain to farm:
More than 2,300 of the remaining 13,000 Afrikaner commercial farmers also have already been slaughtered in the most brutal ways since 1994 in their homesteads.
- Yet these are also the only professional farmers remaining in the country - people with consumate skill and years of experience of farming in this very arid landscape, still actually produce enough excess food to feed some 48-million South Africans.
Their food production has however more than halved since the Xhosa tribal-ruled ANC-regime took over hegemony of the country from 1994. And these farmers are producing this food on only 6% of the viable farmland in south Africa, which is a very dry country at the best of times. There also are 100,000 'emergent black farmers' who according to the 2005 tax records, have produced no excess food at all and paid no taxes -- their families consumed all they produced.
- The ANC-regime is constantly lodging hate-speech campaigns against these Afrikaner farmers which can legally be defined as deliberate incitements to conduct violence against this small group of very capable food-producers. who are so skilled in marketing their products abroad that some have become world-famous: Rooibosch tea and the excellent Cape wines are but two examples.
An American expert on genocide - a law professor who helped write the UN Genocide Convention -- has warned that the way in which this slaughter of this tiny, very visible minority in South Africa is being carried out, is downright genocide. He points out that 'large numbers of people do not have to be murdered for such slaughter to be called a genocide'. In fact the genocide targetting the Boers is 'a silent genocide' because it remains largely unnoticed, this expert said.
