Pretoria – Former hurdles champion Karen Harmse (formerly Wilkinson) has survived after being shot by robbers during a farm attack in Rustenburg. “Everything happened so quickly… I see it happening over and over again in my mind,” Harmse, 46, told Beeld.
Harmse was the South Africa and Africa champion in the 100m hurdles in the 1990s and represented SA at the Olympic Games in Atlanta.She was the second South African sporting legend to become a victim of crime over the weekend after former boxing heavyweight champion Corrie Sanders was shot dead on Saturday evening at a restaurant in Brits.
Harmse’s partner, Nols de Wet, said they had feared a farm attack was coming after the family dogs were poisoned last week.
Harmse was attacked and shot at when she got out of her car at the farmhouse at about 20:00 on Friday night.
“When [one of the robbers] forced me to lie down in the house, I felt my shoulder wouldn’t move.
Only once I felt the bullet hole and saw the blood did I realise I had been shot.”
The gang of about five robbers made the rest of the family lie down while they took cellphones, computers, wallets and cars. Harmse needed stitches to her head and the injured bone, muscles and tendons in her shoulder.
Police are as usual just investigating a case of armed robbery and housebreaking, no one wants to admit that genocide is taking place against white farmers in South Africa.
Fortunately in this case the farmers were spared. Even in the most evil of people there sometimes is a moment when they show compassion. In today’s genocide climate that is a miracle we are thankful for.

South Africa Heading For an Economic Disaster Or Simply Put Economic Genocide
The Woolworths stores group in South Africa was in the news recently after advertising job vacancies but reserving applicants solely for Blacks in terms of the (National) Employment Equity Act. Since then, more major companies (including Nedbank and the SA Blood Transfusion Services) have joined their ranks. This could reasonably be construed as being indicative of the Employment Equity Act completely depriving the White, Brown, Indian and various other population groups, of any economic power. It is therefore not unrealistic to expect that this will be fuelled to the extent of ‘Economic Genocide’ against non-blacks, as more and more companies will have to pursue this exclusive reservation to avoid massive fines and/or prosecution contained in the Act. McDonald’s are allegedly also one of many other foreign companies that are supporting the Economic Genocide with their awarding of South African Franchises solely to Blacks.
The vicious xenophobic attacks recently and the, almost daily, barbaric murders on white farmers , all committed by Blacks, are constant headlines in the world news and one can’t help sensing that this type of self-entitlement label, emanating from the controversial Bill, is the direct cause of the Genocide.
The Blacks are now thus the chosen nation, in spite of a conspicuous lack of skills and capabilities that is repeatedly manifested in the number of disastrous management failures by the Ministers, City Managers and other major companies (like the supplying company in the Limpopo school book fiasco or the mining industry —Aurora, Lonmin -to name but a few) as well as the chaotic proportions that tender fraud amongst black ‘tenderperneurs’ like Julius Malema and the ruling party has reached.
Apartheid, in its worst form, did not ever legislate ‘white –empowerment’ and only a bona fide anti-white racist won’t want to distinguish between a policy of self-governance and this policy of Black Economic Empowerment.
The only question remaining is, after the Economic Genocide – how long before another African country has succeeded in the complete annihilation of its white citizens while the world watches.
