Three people have been confirmed dead in Rheenendal. A farmworker, his wife and son died in the fire. Currently the fires in and around Knysna still burn out of control, fanned by gale force North Westerly winds; ground teams have been struggling to contain the fires. Many houses in the Phantom Pass to Rheenendal area burnt and 4 lives have been lost, 3 directly due to the current fire and one due to a heart attack, presumably agitated by the current conditions in the area.

MASSIVE FIRES STARTED AND SPREADING ACROSS  SUCH A LARGE AREA IN PRECISE CHRONOLOGICAL SEQUENCE AT ABOUT THE SAME TIME . THE SPECULATION OFFERED WAS LIGHTNING. WHAT IS THE CHANCES OF THAT EVER HAPPENING ? KNOWING THE VIOLENT SOUTH AFRICAN BLACKS AND THEIR PREVIOUS LONG HISTORY OF ARSON IN THE WESTERN CAPE– IS THERE MAYBE MORE THAN MEETS THE EYE LIKE ORGANIZED ARSON INVOLVED?

In Sardinabay residents were chasing two black thugs that were throwing petrol in the area and start igniting fires.  In Plettenbergbay four black thugs were caught red-handed by the police starting  fires. Messages from a black racist- Sam Hendrycks–  after the news of the fires broke read: “Fuck all you white Eglo arrogant bustards, that are so hatred of a black government, you even hated Nelson Mandela, let’s not forget how corrupt the apartheid regime government was who empowered themselves for 330 years.”

 

It very much appears the fires was politically motivated.  Simultaneous fires starting at the same time‚ “raises a big red flag” and suggests “deliberate agency“‚ says forensic investigator David Klatzow. On Tuesday‚ it was reported fire fighters were battling 26 separate fires in the Knysna area. Klatzow said an investigation was needed whenever there were multiple fires simultaneously.

FIRES NOW ALREADY REACHING PORT ELIZABETH! DO YOU STILL BELIEVE THAT ONE “LIGHTNING” STRIKE IN 234 KILOMETERS FAR-AWAY KNYSNA WERE RESPONSIBLE? THINK AGAIN- THIS LOOKS MUCH MORE LIKE A  A COORDINATED BLACK ANC-RELATED ATTACK IN ORDER TO DESTABILIZE THE COUNTRY.THIS IS THE ANC’s TRADEMARK FOR MANY YEARS…ARSON.THE WESTERN CAPE WINE-LANDS ARSON ATTACKS ORCHESTRATED BY COSATU GANGSTER TONY EHRENREICH-SUPPORTED BY TINA JOEMAT PETERSEN AND  MILDRED OLIPHANT WERE PROOF OF THIS.

More than 10‚000 people have now been evacuated from various Knysna suburbs and 150 homes destroyed by flames fanned by heavy winds. “It is unusual for fires to start simultaneously‚” said Klatzow‚ one of the leading fire investigators in the country. He said “hard questions needed to be asked“. “When you start an investigation‚ you need an open mind. You start looking for an innocent source [for a fire]. You look at negligence such as cigarettes tossed away and carelessness….somebody who was welding‚ a camp fire not put out properly. “There could be an Eskom power line that fell down and short circuited. This could start two fires.”

But he said “once there are three‚ four‚ five‚ 20 fires [ at the same time] you need an investigation [into the cause of the fires]“. News 24 previously reported an acting municipal manager Bevan Ellman as saying that fires in Knysna in December were arson. Helicopter pilots battling blazes last year spotted black children starting forest fires. More than 40 fires were reported in the Knysna area in December. Children who started them returned to help firemen put out fires‚ according to Ellman. Some of the fires in Cape Town in the past year have been arson‚ said Klatzow. Some were caused by negligence. A fire in January this year in Signal hill was arson‚ according to JP Smith‚ member of Cape Town’s mayoral committee. A teenage colored boy was identified by Bo Kaap locals as starting the Signal Hill blaze. When several fires broke out in the Western Cape in January‚ Premier Helen Zille also asked if the fires were the result of arson. Nine people died during the storm and as a result of fires in Knysna, which were fanned by the winds that ravished most of Cape Town on Wednesday.

A YOUNG FAMILY DIED IN THE INFERNO. 

The couple Tony and Madré Johnson and Madré’s son died in the Knysna fire. Madré was pregnant. Both are civil engineers.

According to Africa, other areas affected by the raging storm include Beach Road and Helen Suzman Boulevard and Three Anchor Bay in Sea Point, which are closed due to high tide. Motorists were asked to use Main Road, Green Point, High Level Road, Sea Point, Regent Road, and Sea Point as alternative routes.

The South African Weather Services has advised that the current weather conditions will persist until approximately 06:00 on Thursday. Showers were likely to subside thereafter.

 

” When the electricity went out on Wednesday we knew the fires that had been raging in Knysna were getting close to Plett.To protect the firefighters working in the forest that surrounds the area‚ where live electricity lines run underground‚ electricity to most of the town was cut. We haven’t had rain for months and it was hot the previous day‚ so when the strong winds started‚ we knew that we should be on high alert.

Ironically‚ a level 1 dought warning was issued on Wednesday. I also recently tore the ligaments in my foot‚ so I have very limited mobility and am using crutches. In the darkness we went to sleep and woke up at around midnight with hectic 50km/h winds raging outside our windows and rattling our roof. The roof access hatch was violently banging‚ an emergency NSRI (National Sea Rescue Institute) siren was sounding across the town for what seemed like a very long time and‚ while my four year old daughter slept‚ I started to pack.

A few weeks ago‚ a friend’s house burnt down. She told me that she’d had 20 minutes to grab her essential belongings and flee the property — so I knew I’d better be prepared. I don’t have content insurance‚ so I took some family heirlooms and some of my daughter’s favourite dolls. I took the passports‚ some jeans and jerseys‚ hiking shoes and Wellington boots. I couldn’t resist taking an expensive dress that was hanging in my closet — though if I’d had less time I know I would have left it. With the help of my domestic worker‚ Sarah Chatora‚ we packed the car to capacity.

We felt like refugees fleeing some violent coup. By then‚ the approaching fire had burnt down the cell phone towers so communication was difficult. I managed to contact a friend who lived just below Whale Rock Ridge. She said the fire was very close and she was leaving with her two young kids and going to stay with family further away. Later I heard that the whole of Whale Rock was evacuated. She added me to a WhatsApp group residents had started which had a ‘‘point” person informing members of the movements of the fire and when each street should evacuate. The air was thick with smoke and the sky was an eerie orange.

From the WhatsApp group I learned that the fire had already burnt most of the Robberg Peninsula. At about 3:30 the wind changed and the fire leapt across Solar Beach burning down luxury beach houses as it moved closer to us. The Qolweni township was in the fire’s path too. Emergency stations were quickly set up on the edge of the forest where it meets the township. A response unit was set up at the community hall but when the fire got too close to that building it was moved to Plett Primary School. I felt panicked as I watched the fire getting closer and a friend phoned at 6:30am and said that it was time to move. I put the cat in a box‚ got dressed and told my daughter that we were going on an adventure.

Leaving the house‚ and trying to drive‚ in pain and with a moon boot‚ I was anxious because I didn’t really know which parts of the town were safe. It felt like a refugee wasteland — soot coming down from the sky‚ the feeling of smoke in our lungs and the sense that the whole town was watching the sky‚ praying for rain. When we got to Main Road there was a sharp polarity‚ people seemed like they were going about their everyday lives — if you ignored the smoke. There were even tourists taking pictures of the lagoon which looked beautiful‚ reflecting the orange sky. At the evacuation point people were arriving in their pyjamas. I realised that many friends had lost their houses.

People were saying that 26 fires had been set simultaneously.One person on the group said that he’d seen a man trying to set a fire. I asked why — for looting‚ was the answer. I learnt that my friends Stuart Palmer and Rhian Berning’s house had burnt down. It was recently featured in the cover of the Sunday Times Home Weekly. Friends that own the Cairnbrogie farm on Airport road spent the night chopping down their for trees to try and save their cows.Later‚ on Thursday morning‚ rain began to fall and the smoke cleared. The rain put out the fires but they’re still smouldering. Last night was another night of high alert.”
