This morning our district morns yet another farmer killed. Senseless murder. Guy was stabbed to death during a robbery (home invasion) at his home.

Quote The civil rights organisation AfriForum and the TAU SA announced today that South African farmers and farm workers experienced the most brutal year yet with the most recorded farm attacks since the recording of farm attacks commenced in 1990.

The past year’s figures were processed and verified to provide the most accurate reflection of the nature and extent of farm attacks in South Africa. A total of 318 farm attacks occurred in 2015, in which 64 farmers and workers lost their lives.

That's 3 in the past week. A very tragic thing. It is looking to be the story and future of that beautiful country from my detached point of perspective.
"Planet of the apes" is not such a far fetched thought.

I've been a bit slack lately. My "9 iron" is back on my hip after a few months in the safe.

Are farmers specifically being targeted only, or is it a wider problem we're just seeing the tip of?

We are not targeted because we are farmers. We are targeted because of the remoteness.
It's more a case of the level of brutality. In the city someone may take you phone off you or break into your house when you are not there. On farms they are more likely to be violent when they enter the property. It is not uncommon for the family to be tied up and beaten/raped/murdered. Many times the place has been cased well before hand and they know what to expect. It is very seldom an opportunistic crime.

Sounds like it's a rough time for you in SA Dairyfarmer. Definitely need to make sure all your family and workers are up to spec with firearms. Do you use trail cameras in areas where access to your property is likely? It may show up someone suspicious or supply evidence if it all turns bad!

Seems you're getting the same problems Zimbabwe has, D-F.
 
Have good friends from there.

Got the electric fence, got the dogs, got the firearms, got the security gates, got the bars on the windows. Cameras no good as I got 20km (12miles) of boundary fence.
 
We are very fortunate that very few of the farm attacks are politically motivated. Its mainly pure crime. We have been lucky so far not to go down the same route as Zim regarding farms. There it was land "promised" to veterans.

Police say that they were called to scene this morning where 67-year-old was found lying face down with two open wounds to his abdomen. A manhunt was launched by members of several task teams. Police spokesperson says the suspects are between the ages of 14 and 24.
