1. Just plain low life criminal events
2. revenge (farmer owe money to worker, etc) It happens , I know of at least one case in De Wildt area.
3. politically motivated to get whites to leave farms, etc.
And not only whites get attacked and murdered. Apparently 40% are non-whites and 60% whites who get attacked/murdered.
FWIW, that makes sense to me (although obviously I'm in the group that's not yet convinced by no 3). Many of the posts seem to imply that all attacks are no 3, which is what makes me wonder about the motivations behind the posts, as well.
But given the scenario outlined by you (including no 3) it shows how difficult it must be to come up with a comprehensive plan to get the better of the situation.
