The efforts of a well-meaning, but naïve white couple who opened their hearts and their home to refugees last summer have been rewarded only months later with treachery and threats of violence that have left the couple homeless and in fear of their lives.

Andrew and Rae Wartnaby heard news reports about a group of peaceful, moderate Muslims who had been subjected to “xenophobic” attacks in South Africa after fleeing persecution by radical Islamists in the Central African Republic, and they wanted to help. The group was not 100% Muslims, but made up a large portion of the group.

The Wartnaby’s invitation to 143 self-identified “refugees” included giving them a place to stay on their 50-acre farm, as well as food and clothing, and the generous couple received glowing media attention in Durban and throughout South Africa as Good Samaritans last July, but it took only a few months before the Muslims turned on the couple, threatening to kill them if they did not leave their own farm.

In the early morning attack, the Muslims tore down fences, broke windows in the farmhouse, and told Andrew Wartnaby, “tonight is your night, the night we will kill you.”

When interviewed by a Durban television station, the displaced farmer explained, “When we took everyone in, we said we would try and help, which we have. But they feel like it has been too long and we let them down.”

It is unclear what local authorities are doing to restore the farm to the Wartnabys, as the Muslim group is still in control of the property.

“I have asked the group to leave my farm, but they refuse to and to be honest, I don’t know what is going to happen. All I know is that I don’t want to be murdered,” said Andrew.

South African has been inundated by a flood of Muslim migrants fleeing civil war and religious unrest, including many who are seeking to wage hijrah or “migration jihad” to take over non-Muslim countries from within by resettlement.

The couple is in hiding somewhere within South Africa.
