What is sure to be a landmark in South African history, Monday 30 October 2017 saw our nation – and people from all over the world – coming together in support of our South African farming community.

Safari Outdoor, our affiliates, partners and friends, showed their support by wearing black and sharing messages of hope and reconciliation. We were overwhelmed by the positive response with messages flooding in from all over South Africa, the USA, Czech Republic and France, and we urge everyone to keep supporting our farmers.

Our CEO, Marco van Niekerk, released the following statement:

“It is an almost impossible task to try and distinguish between fact and fiction in our current South African political climate. Crime statistics change per minute depending on the audience and the agenda, and we are left on our own to try and recognise what is true.

It is however an undeniable fact that the amount of farmers murdered and tortured on our farms have reached proportions where even our divided society is crying out for solidarity in stopping this holocaust of the people who produce our food.

We are not taking a political or cultural stance, but we are adding our weight in any legal way we can to initiatives which will see this phenomenon cease.

Apart from our businesses all showing solidarity for our farm owners and workers over the next few days by wearing black, we have also reached out to friends around the world to add their support to our increasing desperation. The teams from Leupold & Stevens, Hornady and several others rallied to our call and over the course of the next few days you will see teams in black as they pose all over the world.

Our thought, prayers and hearts are with the families of the brutally murdered men and women on farms around South Africa.”

Let’s remember our farmers not just on #BlackMonday, but every day. It’s how they lived, not how they left.

Follow our story on Facebook and keep sharing the message. #StandTall and #BeBrave.

Good to see S&O supporting these initiatives. Let’s keep on speaking out for what is not acceptable in any society. Keep on supporting our farmers and their workers in this way.
