AfriForum believes farm murders are a form of terrorism, according to a statement issued by the civil rights organization on Tuesday.
The statement is in response to the murder of Paul Roux’s Brendin Horner.
“The solution to the problem of farm murders is twofold. The message about farm murders must be taken to the corners of the world and the council chambers of the United Nations to ensure that the international community takes note of it, ”said Ernst Roets, AfriForum’s Head of Policy and Action.
“The second part of the solution – which is even more important – is for people to realize that the government is not going to solve the crisis. Communities should rather become the solution themselves by joining community safety structures to take better care of their own safety, ”says Roets.
Roets spoke at the protest in Senekal.
