I CAN ONLY SHAKE MY HEAD IN DISBELIEF! THIS IS A TIME WHEN THE BOER NATION IS FACING YET ANOTHER OF IT'S GREATEST CHALLENGES FOR SURVIVAL. EVERYBODY KNOWS THE 2010 "PEACE" IS A TEMPORARY FALSE "PEACE"- AND THE TIME IS FAST RUNNING OUT FOR THE NATION TO RECONCILE AND CLOSE RANKS AS A UNIT...YET INDIVIDUALS LIKE ANDRE VISAGIE CHOOSE TO FRAGMENT THE ALREADY FRAGILE BASE EVEN FURTHER MORE. SAD, SAD, SAD!
Former Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) general secretary Andre Visagie resigned to start a new organisation to fulfil a promise he made to the late party leader Eugene Terre'Blanche, he said on Thursday.
"I resigned on Saturday because of the slow pace of the new AWB, to prepare the Boer nation for the onslaught that our nation is facing," he told Sapa in telephone interview.
He said it had taken too long for the AWB to form a security company to protect Afrikaners, especially farmers being targeted by criminals.
"They are not performing, they are not preparing themselves, I couldn't live with that."
He said he had been troubled that the party took too long to give its members military training after Terre'Blanche's death.
His organisation, the Gelofte Volk Republikeine (the Vow Republic), formed on Sunday, would fast-track the resistance movement of the Boer people and would be true to the Terre'Blanche's aspirations for "his people".
"Before Mr Terre'Blanche died he insisted that I make a promise to look after his people, the Boer people. That was the main motivation for me to start the organisation."
He said the Afrikaner nation was in "crisis" and was threatened, and he was perplexed that the new AWB took more than two months -- after Terre'Blanche's death -- to act.
His organisation, he said, had already attracted 80 people.
"We will be prepared and ready for any onslaught and in a position to protect ourselves. We will also do things in public to display that we are not okay with the way things are done in South Africa," he said.
The organisation was not be a political one.
"It's a nation, the Boer nation."
It was established in line with vows made to God by Jan Van Riebeeck on April 6, 1654, two years after he landed at the Cape, and another made by Afrikaners in Krugersdorp on December 16, 1858 and that on December 10, 1880.
"The Boer nation is the only nation that made a vow to God. It is destined to join its members into one to fight for our freedom," said Visagie.
