This does indeed sound bizarre and highly unusual. I wonder whether he might have seen something similar to this while watching television, to explain the form of this "attack". ANyhow, it suggests that he is worried about something, perhaps something about the relationship between you and his mother, and perhaps concerns about having moved so much ( Joburg - Pretoria - Cape Town - Australia ) and that if he went to Australia, he might see very little of you.
Best to have him properly assessed by a good child psychologist or child psychiatrist, especially as they can use indirect ways to help him express what is bothering him, and can then make helpful suggestions abouit how to sort this out
