Harrismith farmer Tjokkie Venter, 36, stabbed in face, beaten with steel bars by squatters on farm:
2012-03-21 08:02 Harrismith farmer Tjokkie Venter, 36, is in hospital after being stabbed in the face and beaten with an iron bar when he was demolishing a steel structure on a farm which was bought by the SA National Road Agency SANRAL which plans to widen the N3 freeway. People who are living illegally on the State-owned farm assaulted Mr Venter and his father on Tuesday evening on the farm Gegund – after the two Venter men had been demolishing a steel structure on the farm Uitvlugt, belonging to Sanral. Local citizen-defence unit member Piet Roetz said the Venters were assaulted ‘by people who claimed the farm belonged to them, not to Sanral’. The farm house and storage sheds were already demolished. Albert Venter alerted the police to the assault and SAPS sergeant Majang Skalkie said ‘a charge of criminal violent assault is being investigated. Thus far nobody was arrested.

Trevor Rees and wife Laura murdered at home, Farrarmere, Benoni March 20 2012: all set to travel to family in Australia:
The elderly Benoni couple who were found murdered in their home in Farrarmere, Benoni, Trevor and Laura Rees, both in their eighties, were all set to travel to visit their son and grandchildren in Australia when they were murdered. Their death was so ‘senseless,’ said reverend Willem Mostert of the Farrarmere Anglican congregation to which the Rees couple belonged. Their son Glenn Rees – who also is an Anglican Minister, lives north of Melbourne in Australia. A family friend Dianne van Niekerk said the son was travelling to South Africa to make the funeral arrangements of his parents. Forensic experts examined the crime scene in Masefield Street two days after their bodies were found. SAPS captain Alfred Nakana of Benoni said it looks as if the killers had jumped across the back wall and found Mr Reed in the hobby-room where he did his woodwork. He was bashed over the head with a hammer and stabbed several times with a knife. Rev Mostert said he saw the couple the previous Thursday when he helped them with the documentation for their travel to Australia. Mostert became concerned when he did not hear from them and contacted security company officials and the police, who broke down the door and discovered the bodies.
Flash-mob attacks soar: Evaton xenophobia: 1,000-strong flash-mob mob attacks "caused by criminals who spread rumours of ‘satanism’ at Living Waters Church
22 march 2012 SAPA Criminals may have been the source of a “satanic” rumour at Living Waters Church in Evaton, south of Gauteng, police say. “While we were busy with unrest at the Living Waters Church, two supermarkets and at least six foreign traders were looted,” police spokesman Constable Tshifhiwa Mitileni said. The crimes and the accompanying violent protests, which have been going on since Tuesday, have pushed Evaton into the “red” making it a 'high crime' zone, he added. The Evaton protests were triggered by a rumour that the church was satanic and that children were being kidnapped by church leaders.Mitileni said there had never been any complaint about the church before and police were puzzled by the protests.“If this was the case why has nobody ever laid a charge or complained to us about children disappearing.” The 1,000-strong crowd of protesters were also not all from Evaton but appeared to have arrived from surrounding areas.“There is something else at the bottom of this but we will find out what it is,” he said.
On Tuesday eight people were arrested. There were more arrests but the exact number of arrests could not be confirmed on Thursday.“Today people are going back to work and the situation is quieter,” Mitileni said.

Large armed flash-mob crowd burns tyre-barriers, surround and besiege Ratanda Heidelberg police station: torch library, community hall, 5 houses, municipal offices: MEC tells cops to use force
22 March 2012 RATANDA township in Heidelberg was tense but stable yesterday as community members and police faced off in front of the police station. A large rolling-mob of well-organised residents who kept in touch with each other ‘flash-mob’ style - went on the rampage since Monday. By Thursday, the violence had not yet abated.
The mob used the excuse that they were angered by Lesedi local municipality mayor Lerato Maloka reportedly failing to attend a community meeting at the weekend. This led to residents vowing to stop council vehicles from entering the township.During the protest march a library, multipurpose centre, community hall, five houses belonging to ward councillors and municipal offices were burnt down. Several Somali-owned shops were also looted.Residents told Sowetan that they were unhappy about the way the council was handling electricity billing in the area.Most of residents use prepaid electricity.A community leader who only identified himself as Kenny said: "If you buy electricity for R200, they give you R150 worth of electricity and say R50 is going to your debt to the municipality. But the money they take never reflects on our bills. The municipality also charges us money for rent but it is not the same for everyone ..."
