One can only imagine how many pages the western media would dedicate to the trial of three white South Africans accused of a similar crime. However, in this case in common with 99.9% of all such interracial murders. the victims were white and the accused black. This does not suit the narrative which the old media are determined to follow, and is therefore such cases are embarrassments, which they seek to under play or deliberately fail to report.
The court heard the gang lay in wait for Tony Viana 53, to arrive home, then they attacked him with golf clubs and a panga / machete before tying him up.
Shortly afterwards Mrs Geraldine Viana and the couple’s 12 year old son Amaro returned and were also attacked by the gang. Amaro was also tied up and together with his father was forced to watch while all three men rapedd his mother in turn, restraining her by variously standing on her head or forcing a pillow over her face.
After raping Mrs Viana the gang murdered her and her husband. Such rapes and murders are now commonplace in South Africa, however, what the killers did next was what made this crime particularly heinous.
Amaro Viana had watched as his mother was raped, he has witnessed his parents being slaughtered, he knew the men who did it and could identify them, they decided he had to die.
However, they didn’t just kill him, they didn’t even show him the mercy of shooting him, execution style through the back of the head, as the killers of three year old WillemienPotgieter did to her after killing her family. Instead the things which took twelve year old Amaro’s life took him to the bathroom, filled the bath with scalding hot water and held him under water until he stopped struggling.
As a parting act, the killers disembowled the family dog.
This was no “bungled burglary”, this was no “robbery gone wrong, this was another hate crime, but it was only a white boy they boiled to death, so hate crimes charges were never brought.
