More than 7000 white farmers have been killed in South Africa from 1994. to April 2017. If one considers that we have a total of about 30 000 white farmers left, this figure really becomes significant. (23% of the total farming community which is predominantly white (64%) The Latest update April 2017 >7000 (Statistics are not being updated anymore)
We, the white city dwellers may feel reasonably safe at the moment, after all, it is the farmers they are after. The question remains, who will be next?
Once all the farms have been re-distributed, your suburban dwelling may be the target of choice.
Do not become complacent, do not distance yourself from these atrocities as you may become the next victim.
The Jewish people in Europe also thought that they were fairly safe from harm, quite a large portion of the Jewish community in Europe were considered affluent and this may have contributed to their perception that they were isolated and buffered from the impending violence.

He states that it is not Black culture (in a country that claims to be non-racial) to spend money on your dog by taking it to the vet when its requires medical attention.
(Apparently he meant that this should not be allowed when someone in your service – a black person obviously, needs a doctor.
I can understand his sentiment but usually a person that is employed earns money and has the ability to get to a doctor, or if unemployed, free Government-run clinics or hospitals.

Animals are totally dependent on their owners for everything, from daily sustenance to grooming and medical assistance if so required.
Dogs did not ask to be domesticated almost thirty-five thousand years ago.
It was published by Minister Richard Baloyi in our Government Gazette that Council Members – Countrywide are to receive Risk Insurance and Life insurance, to be paid for by the TAXPAYER.
This brilliant move was certainly inspired by the fact that we had more than a hundred (113) poor- service-delivery–related riots during the first seven months of 2012.
I think it is ridiculous to fund this with Tax money – HA HA, make the people that are extremely unhappy – to the point where they are revolting against said Council members, for NOT doing their jobs, PAY even more to compensate for anticipated damages/losses and-so-on, which may be incurred by thePERPETRATORSof the root causes of the revolts. (Pay them for cocking things up)
