Volksrust murder


Crime is a global phenomena, but it is embarrassing as a South African to have to constantly deal with such brutality. On Saturday, 6 December 2008 we learnt of the tragedy; the brutal murder of Oom Jan, owner of the farm of South Africa's on which is based the premier inland slope soaring site: the Tamatieberg. The extract is from the 8 Dec 2008 Beeld newspaper.

Jan de Beer had been through very tough times but has always been extremely tolerant of the slope soaring community; he always trusted us to ensure that his farm was kept clean & free of litter, no fires were lit & also that we did not scare the wild or farm animals.

Rest in peace now, Oom Jan
