News24 Are a Bunch of Cowards!

News24 published the following article regarding the latest elderly couple to be murdered on their farm. This one strikes me especially because it is very similar to another recent murder. The elderly lady in today's article was stuffed into a freezer. This is eerily reminiscent of the elderly couple that were both stuffed into a freezer after having been bludgeoned to death. News24 does not give us much information about the murders themselves.

But aside form that fact, what strikes me as exceptionally childlike and cowardly is the fact that News24 now refuses to allow any comments on the article. Is that because you don't want us to voice our outrage at another heinous crime committed against defenceless old men and women. News24, you have officially joined the bandwagon in stifling free speech.

Just the latest attempt by the media to downplay the systematic annihilation of our farmers.

Elderly couple killed on Free State farm

Bloemfontein - An elderly couple was found dead on the farm Somerset near Parys, police said on Tuesday.
Spokesperson Colonel Thandi Mbambo said the couple's bodies were found in a tuck shop they ran from a garage on the farm.
"The husband was found on the floor of the tuck shop, with his feet tied and head covered with a material sack."
The body of the woman, aged between 70 and 75, was found tucked into a freezer.
"No visible injuries were found on the bodies," said Mbambo.
The victims' bodies were taken to the state mortuary where post mortems would be conducted to determine the cause of deaths.
Farmhouse ransacked
Police said a domestic worker arrived at the house at 07:30 on Tuesday and found the farmhouse ransacked.
Mbambo said the woman searched for the couple but could not find them.
A neighbour also arrived and helped to search for the couple, until they were found in the tuck shop.
Police said no arrests had been made.
Mbambo said the motive for the killing could be robbery.
Free State police commissioner Major General Moeketsi Sempe has condemned the killing of elderly people who are unable to defend themselves.
Police urged the community to provide information that could assist in identifying the people responsible for the crime.
