We mourn in condolence with the orphans and the widows around Durban, Johannesburg and other areas in South Africa, whose next of kin have been killed when incited mobs attacked and assaulted them, some of whose dwellings were raided, destroyed and set on fire, and they being called upon to return to the countries from which they had fled. [>> report of eye-witnesses]

The victims had earlier come from Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Congo, Somalia and other African countries and had hoped to find refuge from oppression in South Africa.

We are consternated and appalled, angry and sad.

Ben Khumalo-Seegelken, relatives and friends.

  1. Ja, ek treur ook diep en intens met al die mense wat so swaarky en in diep rou sit.

    Tog moet ons, SONDER om ons kop in die sand te steek, ook positief leer leef en dink. Ons hele lewe moet aanvaarding en die gewilligheid om aan te pas, uitstraal.. Ons moet ophou om net al die negatiewe goed in ons land te bespreek en aan te spreek, al is ons almal bewus van so baie dinge wat verkeerd is, veral by die leierskap – Ons moet klem lê op die positiewe dinge – EN DAAR IS BAIE van hulle! Die grootste gros van ons mense van alle groepe, rasse en gelowe is mekaar goedgesind. Natuurlik is ons bewus van ekstreme groepe binne elke denkrigting in ons land – maar hulle IS ‘n minderheid en ons moet met geloof en wedersydese aanvaarding en respek voortgaan en nie toelaat dar daardie minderheid ons hoop en ons moed en ons toekomsvisie steel nie.

    Ook moet ons regtig en opreg vir ons leiers bid – vir wysheid en nederigheid en insig en omgee vir die MENSE van die land – vir ALMAL – maar VERAL vir dié wat sonder werk, heenkome en onderdak is, en vir die wat nie kan voorsien in die absoluut basiese behoeftes van elke dag nie. En elkeen van ons moet genade vra en ook aannneem as dit gegee word, om nie net ons goed en ons tyd en ons kennis met ander te deel nie, maar om onsself te gee….

    A tall order – but I think that is what our Lord wants…. After all He gave himself. May He give us eyes to see His hand and His miracles and His love in the every-day tasks and things and people around us….

    Sterkte en genade vir julle!
    – Annemie.

  3. The Death of Emmanuel Sithole

    rivers of tears a-flowin‘ down human cheeks falling like machetes
    onto blood-drenched streets of brittle consciences
    inured numbed dumbed bought co-opted
    digested in the belly of the beast of belched whiskey and puffed cigars
    rising like smoke from chimneys and those crematoria of not-so long ago
    grinding down wearing thin corroding at the soul of what is supposed to make us human
    while we barrel ever onwards towards that final resting place
    where impaled humanity slinks away to cower apathetically
    to regurgitate to ravenously scavenge in the bowls of the blind stitching
    our eyes shut as the tears flow as blood down the street
    where Emmanuel Sithole was killed
    by me you them us.
    all of us.
