The well-loved Afrikaans author and academic Prof. Daan Wybenga, 69, has just been tortured to death in his house in Clarens, in the Free State. His body was found on Monday night in his home.

Wybenga is the latest casualty in South Africa’s spate of sadistic black-on-white murders, fueled by racial animosity and years of communist propaganda. His body was so badly mutilated that his son, Mr. Wim Wybenga, 37, could only recognise him by his hands.

According to him, the killers threw boiling water over his dad, hit him over the hand, tied up his hands and feet, and taped a plastic bag around his head to suffocate him.

“At the autopsy, my dad still had the plastic bag around his head and his hands and feet were tied up. His skin was burnt off and full of blisters. His face was also swollen,” said Mr. Wybenga.

His corpse was found in the bathroom, presumably because the hot water there was used to torture him. Making their victims drink hot water, or making them stand under hot showers is a favourite form of torture used by South Africa’s marauding black bandits. In the case of the massacre of the Viana family, in Walkerville, near Johannesburg, 12-year old Amaro Viana was drowned in a tub of hot water.

According to Mr. Wim Wybenga, his father was a loving man who deeply cared for others, even strangers.

“My father was well-liked man and gentle. Hy helped poor people. Every month he gave a large amount to charity. Everyone here knows one another and cares for each other. When something like this happens, it disturbs the harmony of the community.”

People in Clarens described him as a caring and respected man who was very fond of his vegetable garden. He took a special interest in an informal settlement inhabited by black people in Clarens and donated food and money to them.

His gold-coloured Toyota Corolla, cellphone, and music system were missing from the house.

Police were still searching for the murderers and appealed to the community to come forward with information. Charges of murder, house robbery, and vehicle theft were being investigated.

Prof. Wybenga was a linguist, author and also had a passion for theology.

From 1984 t0 1992 he lectured in Afrikaans and Dutch at the Northwest University’s Vaal Triangle campus and afterwards at the Sebokeng campus of Vista University.

He retired in 2003.

He published various academic books on the Afrikaans language.

Wybenga is survived by four children, Fernande, Christabe, Gea, Wim and two grandchildren.

The funeral will take place next Thursday at 12:00 at the Reformed Church in the nearby town of Bethlehem.

      Exactly. Do we have to wait for one of their love one’s to be tortured like this before they actually can cotten on to reality? Or will they still whip around claiming it is ‘normal’ crime?

      • Boerseun.Z.A.R

        Maybe the outbreak of a civil war,like what has happened in most African countries,will wake them up?

          Yip 🙁

            We are just over 19,000 murders a year now,according to the main stream media,It might not be one of your relatives only…

          • We have the lowest murder rate in 40 years. Things are not getting worse.

            Where are you,behind a rock?

          • No, I’m behind this thing called google, that lets you look up facts, to prove idiot liars like you that they are wrong:


            Don’t argue with me. You need to take up your argument with the U.S. Bureau Of Justice Statistics.

            I suggest you show up at their door and explain to them why you have data they don’t.

            So where do you get the WE?
            You are a disgrace to Richmond & the confederacy,boy.

            When I visited your state,I met decent people.

          • It sounds like you are saying I am not decent because I am not a racist.


          • Boerseun.Z.A.R

            No,because nothing you say makes any sense.

          • What did I say that did not make any sense? I might understand if it’s an opinion, but when I quote statistics straight from the Department Of Justice, how does that not make sense?

          • Boerseun.Z.A.R

            Close call for you liberal geeks the other day,the republicans are coming for you lot.

          • Yea, like they came for us last week, right? Shut down the government, brought their approval rating to the lowest in history, and GOT NOTHING.

            I didn’t vote for Obama, but him giving them NOTHING was one of his best moves yet. Even the Republicans are mad at the Republicans now.

            What we are seeing is death throes of a party that once had good ideals, but became corrupted.

          • Boerseun.Z.A.R

            Who would you say in all your wisdom corrupted them?

          • No “who” – it’s not one person or persons. Just the general concepts of hubris and greed. Same thing that’s made the Democrats so crappy (just tried to curse, site wouldn’t let me).

            Don’t blame me. I vote 3rd party because everybody is wrong. 🙂

          • Boerseun.Z.A.R

            Certainly not.
            It was two separate questions,how does any of this relate to Farm Genocide on white South Africans?

          • Guest

            And this is relevant to white genocide in South Africa how? But please don’t let this stop you from bleating MSM headlines to feel like you’re part of something.. uhm Really Big for the next two minutes

          • Okay, I’m from Washington D.C., so once you calculate the airfaire and deposit it in my papal, I’ll come over. But I’ll also need $300/day to make up for my lost wages.

    Good thing apartheid ended and these filthy animals are free to run wild on the dark continent.

  • Look at all the simpletons who can’t think complexly enough to realize the primary indicator of crime is economic status and not race. The KKK is alive and well, apparently. I thought we took these evolutionary rejects out 50 years ago.

    • Hlothere

      You are truly an idiot of epic proportions!

    • Guest

      Engineering consent for more wars to teach the KKK a couple of lessons? Oh wait the KKK are the Seals and they are starting to dislike Obama. At least Obama has drones. Will he beusing those againts whites in South Africa? Is that your point?,0,4805969.story#axzz2iZvprGhY

    • Captain Logic

      Your argument would only be valid if all a poor person did was steal from a wealthier person.

      However, in South Africa, this is not the case. The so-called “robbers” tend to use the most barbaric and sadistic methods of murder, torture and rape against their victims that they can think of.

      Can I condemn a desperately poor person for stealing a loaf of bread? No.

      Can I condemn a desperately poor person for brutally murdering someone whilst stealing the loaf of bread, torturing him to death in the process, and also raping his wife and daughters and killing his infant children. Absolutely!

      But, as it is, the killings of SA farmers (and their families) are racially motivated, and are not motivated by poverty.

      BTW, the KKK don’t exist in South Africa, and never have.

      • Guest

        Wrong. The desperately poor person tortures, rapes, maims, murders and ends up not stealing anything except a cellphone and firearms. Taking the phone means any survivors can’t call for help. So logic indicates that poor people eat firearms, not bread

        • Captain Logic

          But, as it is, the killings of SA farmers (and their families) are racially motivated, and are not motivated by poverty.

          Did you not read that bit?

          I’m well aware that the heinous murders on SA farms are not about poverty, but about racial hatred. Specifically, Black on White racial hatred.

          For the record, I’m against all racial hatred, whichever way it swings, but the colour of it in SA today is manifestly clear. No thanks to you, MSM.

      • And your argument would only be valid if you continued to deny that many of the comments left on this article were about *america* and not Africa. Good day sir.

    • Rutger

      The Klan is only popular among unimaginative leftist demagogues who
      yearn to stifle dissent. They flip a coin. One side says “KKK” and the
      other side says “Nazis.” Aren’t the Tea Party voters also Klan members? Because a burning cross looks like a “t.” Oh, and because disagreeing with a black person is racist.

      • Captain Logic

        News 24 refers to the Tea Party as “Ultra-Conservative Right.”

        Utterly laughable.

    • SicSemperTyrannis

      We? Is there a mouse in your pocket? I imagine you couldn’t fight your way out of paper bag, so ease up the we comments.
