Somewhere in South Africa, thieves are loading a farm’s crops or cattle into a truck, armed with bolt cutters, they hastily scrap a R 100,000 irrigation system – for a few hundred Rands worth of copper wire. Solar panels, storage tanks, fuel and generators, gone. Our farmers are living in danger and daily they have to protect their own life’s and property.
It is unbelievable how the tendency to rob farms and farming communities has spiralled to unacceptable levels in the last few years in South Africa. The South African government does not listen to the plea of all the farmers across our country. The South African Police is not in a position to react and what we get is a scenario where criminals can plan their crime activities and get away with it. As yet, there is no insight into solving the problem which let many farming and these communities to the mercy of the criminals and murderers. These criminals have assessed our farmers as soft targets and the tendency of police force active intervention in urban areas is driving the criminals to seek easier ways of enriching themselves, plundering farms.
