On October 12th, 2020 South African President Cyril Ramaphosa released a letter meant to mollify a fed-up South Africa, ostensibly to clam emotion ahead of the 16 October 2020 court date for the accused domestic terrorists who tortured, murdered, and hung 21-year-old farm manager Brendin Horner from a steel post. His day late, dollar short letter is full of blaming others for the ANC’s failures, moral equivalency, a complete lack of policy suggestions or ideas other than to tell others that they need to do better.

President Cyril Ramaphosa denying Farm Murders in South Africa

In a paper called the “The Ten Stages of Genocide”, originally released as the Eight Stages of Genocide, presented to the US State Department in 1996, Dr. Gregory H. Stanton, a peer-reviewed academic on the subject of genocide, defines denial as one of the distinct stages of Genocide:

“Denial is the stage that lasts throughout and always follows Genocide. It is among the surest indicators of further genocidal massacres. The perpetrators of Genocide, burn the bodies, try to cover up the evidence and intimidate the witnesses. They deny that they committed any crimes and blame what happened on the victims.” says Dr. Stanton.

Why is President Cyril Ramaphosa denying the large scale killing of farmers, when even President Donald Trump is acutely aware of the atrocities in South Africa?

Diverting from the government’s incompetence and the heinous murder of Brendin Horner by playing the race card, President Cyril Ramaphosa Tweeted the following, shortly after releasing his letter. Apparently increasing the racial tensions in the country days before the murder trial is of no concern to the President.
