Patrick Radebe, Sipho Mbele and Sphiwe Motaung


Dear readers, we have another great contribution by Harper Blythe. I thank her very much for her article.

Crimes: Murder, Torture, Rape, Animal Abuse.

I would like to reserve a very special spot in hell for Patrick Radebe, Sipho Mbele and Sphiwe Motaung.
These events took place many years ago, but a voice had to be given to the suffering endured.
The Viana family lived in Walkerville, 40 miles south of Johannesburg, South Africa.
On 1 October 2011, Patrick Radebe, Sipho Mbele and Sphiwe Motaung broke into the Viana’s family home.
Antonio Viana, 53-year-old father and husband, arrived home and caught the trio in the act.  Sphiwe ran off, but Patrick and Sipho brutally assaulted Antonio with a panga, hunting knife and golf club. 
After the vicious assault, they took Antonio upstairs and enjoyed some of the family’s booze while they waited for the mother, Geraldine and son, Amaro Jose, 12 years old, to return home.
The unsuspecting Geraldine and Amaro arrived home. They too were assaulted and dragged upstairs.
Patrick and Sipho repeatedly, viciously raped Geraldine and, when they were done, forced a booze bottle into her vagina.  The monstrous pair killed Antonio and Geraldine, execution style, with Antonio’s pistol.
Amaro Jose, the poor boy, was made to watch the entire grisly affair.

The monstrous hellbeasts did not want to leave any witnesses so they lead the weeping, pleading Amaro Jose to the bathroom.  They filled a bathtub with scalding hot water, and shoved the poor boy face first into the boiling water, where he eventually drowned.
Their efforts to eliminate any and all witnesses was for naught as the gruesome pair’s DNA were found throughout the Viana family’s home.
As a final indignation, the monstrous pair tortured and gutted the family’s dog, leaving it to bleed out.
They fled in the family’s vehicle and told all of their mates what they had done, in so doing, securing their own fate.
The attack on the Viana family was exceptionally brutal and malevolent and sent shock waves throughout South Africa. 
The most abhorrent part of this callous attack was that the assailants were known to the Viana family.
Patrick, age 24, was the family’s gardener. Sipho Mbele, age 21, lived with the Viana family from the tender age of 5. His mother worked as a domestic worker on the Viana farm.
On 25 July 2012, Patrick and Sipho pleaded guilty to rape and three charges of murder at the Regional Court of Vereeniging. Sphiwe pleaded guilty to house robbery.
During and after trial proceedings Patrick, Sipho and Sphiwe laughed and joked, but the joke was on them as Patrick and Sipho received 5 life sentences and 24 years each.  Sphiwe received 20 years.
The judge stated that the court will always remember this case as one of the most brutal cases it had ever seen and that Patrick and Sipho had to be removed from society.
The monstrous hellbeasts had no regard for human life, no empathy and no consideration.  They literally ripped the Viana family to shreds and laughed about it.  They showed no remorse, instead their attitudes were one of achievement and pride.  
They sought vengeance for a perceived wrong and the Viana family suffered an unforgivable fate, but I do believe that justice was served as Patrick and Sipho will never, ever see the light of day again.
Gabriella, Antonio’s daughter from his first marriage, thankfully escaped the horror of that faithful day as she had not been home. 
The violent slaying of her family must have been a horrific experience for her.  My heart goes out to her and I hope that the healing hands of time are kind to her.

    I’m not sure why the one monster was only charged with B and E . That’s still part of the crime he participated in. At least 2 of them are locked away for ever. Sick bleeps.

    • FlyingLeadChange says:

      I understand your point, but if he ran off, it’s beneficial to give him a reduced sentence.

      Otherwise, the message sent is that he has nothing to lose by joining in the killing. I’d far prefer the message be that if a property thief runs off at the threshold of human harm, things will go better for them.

      • Rhonda says:

        Well he also might have recieved a lesser sentance for turning on his fellow hellbeasts. That’s often what happens when more than one person is involved. The police seperate the thugs, interview each one and then try and get one of them to turn on on the other hellbeasts in exchange for a reduced sentance. Could be that’s what happened here.

    These guys are the epitome of evil. Should have been put down like the sick animals they are.

    • Susan Ducasse says:

      I agree with the sentiment wholeheartedly, but it saddens be when demons like this get called ‘animals’..I’m sure the greatest insult one can bestow on an actual animal is to be called ‘human’.

    There isn’t a crisis for white people in South Africa. Stories like these are made by racists. Only a nazi would post this.

    • cleo says:

      Where in the article does it claim there’s a crisis for white people on South Africa? It doesn’t say that. It’s a story about 3 evil people.

      I’ve never been accused of being a nazi before and I sure as hell don’t like it. My site exposes heinous acts committed by heinous individuals from all around the planet. These killers more than qualify for a spot on this site.

      • Karen Tuttle says:

        I was very wrong about this and I didn’t mean to imply you were a nazi, even after I typed the message I realized that I come here to read and it’s obviously not nazi material, more the opposite that’s why I come. I apologize, I made a very foolish assertion.

    • Prettiest Girl in the Morgue says:

      ….did you seriously just try to make the torture-murder of this entire family a race thing? Take your garbage somewhere else.

    • FlyingLeadChange says:

      Some people make everything about race. Evil knows no such boundaries.

    • Susan Ducasse says:

      You should really take your comedy act on the road, and give up your day job (if you have one) And FYI, google ‘South Africa White Farmer attacks’ and be prepared to question your statement. And no, I am not a racist, or a ‘nazi’, i just object to babies being wrapped in newspaper and set alight because they happen to be white…smh.

      • Karen Tuttle says:

        thank you

      • Karen Tuttle says:

        I did and now I know

      • bengalpuss says:

        Susan thank you, I’ve read about white farmers being murdered and their farm that they’ve farmed on for decades given away, Mugabe is a prime example. These 3 pieces of shit murdered a family that employed them, and then the poor mother is brutally raped in front of her son, then murdered. I don’t give a fuck what color they are because they are evil bastards who even laughed while at court. Karen in future take a history lesson before you make yourself look like a stupid fucker.

    • Uptickgirl says:

      Ignorant fool Ms. Tuttle.. I am embarrassed for you.

    • Michael says:

      None but you is bring race into this, all your doing is giving credit to the South African farm Murders theory. Your helping “Nazi’s” with your PC bullshit.

    • Karen Tuttle says:

      Hi everyone, I’d like to say that I spent some time thinking and researching about this and I take back my original comment. I’m sorry that I implied that the person who posted this is a Nazi, which I know isn’t I’m a regular visitor and this site is obviously not made by nazi.
      My knee-jerk reaction to the article and then reading the replies caused me to step back and look at the issue at hand. I was wrong for what I said and apologize for the drama.
