Genocide Watch placed South Africa at stage 5 (polarization) from 2001 – 2011 because the country’s racial divisions continued, there was a high level of youth unemployment in the black population, and the country had an appalling crime rate, including one of the world’s worst rape rates against all groups in the country. Genocide Watch has been particularly concerned for over ten years at the hate crimes perpetrated against Boer farmers and other whites — bodies of murder victims disemboweled and disfigured, old women raped in front of their husbands, and other strong evidence of racially targeted crimes. However, we had no evidence that these crimes were being encouraged by the South African government or that they were organized by an organized hate group.
Now we have evidence of organized incitement to violence against white people. It began with the rise of Julius Malema, President of the African National Congress Youth League, who began singing the old anti-Boer song: “Kill the Boer” at rallies of the Youth League, then called for expropriation of white owned lands while he was in Zimbabwe visiting Robert Mugabe, and has most recently called Botswana’s racially harmonious society “neo-colonial,” and has called for the overthrow of Botswana’s government. Malema is a racist Marxist-Leninist. The failure of the leadership of the ANC to discipline him and remove him from the Presidency of the ANC Youth League, and his recent reelection to the Presidency of the ANC Youth League (despite his age of 30), have led Genocide Watch to conclude that violence against whites is now being planned and incited by one of the most important leaders of the new South Africa. Malema has considerable support among young black South Africans, and ANC leaders are afraid to discipline and remove him from his position. Genocide Watch will keep South Africa at Stage 6 – Preparation, until Julius Malema is removed from his position of growing power. South Africa has not yet reached actual genocide, which is Stage 7, but the preparations for it are ominous. Xenophobic riots and murders of foreign refugees as well as continuing hate crimes against Boer farmers and other whites have caused dark storm clouds to form over the “rainbow nation.
