The original trigger for the writing of the book AmaBhulu was the horrific torture deaths of white farmers in South Africa that went unreported in the Western Media. Meanwhile, the death toll mounted and the white South African farming population fell from 85,000 to 40,000. A forlorn informal roadside memorial to the murdered farmers is located north of the capital, Pretoria.Farm_Murders

The NGO, AfriForum, in announcing on 14 March 2014 the latest murder at Cullinan, outside Pretoria, reports that the new Black-commanded Police insisted they were “too tired for patrols. AfriForum also revealed that the Police were supposed to have four vehicles available for patrol, but that none was available and only five police officers had drivers licences.

This is the pitiful state of South Africa today, while North American TV and other media would have the innocently ignorant in Northern Hemisphere believe that all white South Africans are somehow mysteriously rich and live in gated communities like Oscar Pistorius.

Unfortunately, the media in North America is only interested in the “blade runner” and still does not report the slaughter among South Africa’s farmers. Neglect to do one’s job makes one culpable in some fields of human endeavour. How then are news reporters not deemed culpable in the matter of Genocide for refusing to report on it?

Do they actually need to be reminded of the 1994 Rwanda Genocide on a daily basis? At the time they were too busy reporting on the Great Election in South Africa where they were anticipating a war. In the words of liberal British reporter Richard Dowden [1]:
—“In the search for blood in South Africa we all missed one of the worst mass murders of all time

Now they have their blood in South Africa, but it is “white” blood, and mostly that of Afrikaners. Apparently, that does not count. The murder rate among South Africa’s white farmers is greater than the loss rate of US soldiers in Afghanistan. How ironic is it that South African technology has been protecting the US (and British and earlier Canadian) soldiers against IEDs; technology developed by the family and friends of these very farmers who now so desperately need help.
