Terreblanche murder is 'declaration of war' by blacks
South African President Jacob Zuma has called for calm as supporters of white supremacist leader Eugene Terreblanche said his murder was a "declaration of war" by blacks.

Members of the far-Right AWB threatened vengeance after he was beaten to death in a dispute with two farm workers over unpaid wages.

Police said he was attacked to the head with a machete and a club in his bed at his farm outside Ventersdorp, North West province, on Saturday night.


Two men, aged 21 and 15, have been charged with murder and will appear in court on Tuesday.

Andre Visagie, the AWB's secretary-general and a leading candidate to succeed Mr Terreblanche as head of the organisation, said the party was planning its response.

"The death of Mr Terreblanche is a declaration of war by the black community of South Africa to the white community that has been killed for ten years on end," he said.

He said there was "fierce anger" among AWB members.

"They all call for revenge for Eugene TerreBlanche's death," he said. "There are people who threatened to start with violence. We encourage them to wait until we can launch co-ordinated actions at one time right across the country."

He refused to rule out violence "if we don't have any option" and appealed for foreign intervention, including the provision of arms, "to assist us to defend us in this country where the white man is being murdered every day".

The ruling African National Congress disputed Visagie's statement and Mr Zuma called the killing a "terrible deed".

"South Africans not to allow agent provocateurs to take advantage of this situation by inciting or fuelling racial hatred," he said. "The murder of Terreblanche must be condemned, irrespective of how his killers think they may have been justified. They had no right to take his life."

Jackson Mthembu, ANC spokesman, added: "The black community has never declared war on any other nationality in South Africa. It is in fact incorrect and these are sentiments that fuel polarisation of the South African populace."

Nathi Mthethwa, the police minister, visited the scene of the killing, a homestead surrounded by rolling fields on the highveld plateau in North West province.

He said: "We really appeal to people not to make inflammatory statements, no matter where they come from, because they are not going to be helpful."

Mr Terreblanche, 69, rose to prominence in the 1980s, campaigning for a separate white homeland and championing a tiny minority determined to preserve apartheid.

He was known for his fiery rhetoric and his white supremacist movement mounted a bombing campaign to defend apartheid. He later serving a prison sentence for the attempted murder of a black security guard.

His death came amid an ongoing controversy over the ANC Youth Leader, Julius Malema, singing an apartheid-era song that advocates killing white farmers at a rally. A South African court has ruled the song, which includes the line 'Kill the Boer', is illegal but the ANC has defended it as part of its heritage from the struggle against apartheid. Boer is Afrikaans for a farmer, but is often used as a disparaging term for any white in South Africa.

Opposition parties have called for called for action and highlighted the fact that more than 3,000 white farmers are estimated to have been murdered since the end of apartheid in 1994.

There is growing disenchantment among blacks in South Africa for whom the right to vote has not translated into jobs and better housing and education.

Some consider themselves betrayed by leaders governing the richest country on the continent and pursuing a policy of black empowerment that has made millionaires of a tiny black elite while millions remain trapped in poverty, even as whites continue to enjoy a privileged lifestyle.

BELANGRIK: Eugene Terre'Blanche en die simboliek van oorlog


Maandag, 05 April 2010 01:58 Dan Roodt

Soos elkeen wat geskiedenis op skool gehad het weet, het 'n sluipmoord op aartsbiskop Franz Ferdinand van Sarajewo op 28 Junie 1914 direk aanleiding tot die eerste wêreldoorlog gegee. Die moord op die AWB-leier geskied op 'n besonder sensitiewe oomblik in ons geskiedenis, op die vooraand van die Wêreldsokkerbeker en moet in 'n baie ernstige lig gesien word.

Daar is enkele elemente wat hier van belang is:

* Julius Malema wat praat van "verinheemsing", m.a.w. die verdrywing van blankes van plaasgrond soos in Zimbabwe
* Malema se huidige besoek aan Zimbabwe waar hy die steun van ZANU-PF ontvang het vir anti-blanke en anti-Afrikaner-optrede in Suid-Afrika
* 'n Geheime vliegveld wat volgens berigte in Britse koerante - waarskynlik gegrond op waarneming deur die Britse inligtingsdiens - in die diamantgebied Marange gebou is en waarvan die uitsluitlike doel sou wees om wapens vanaf China in te vlieg. Anders as 'n tyd gelede toe 'n skip met Chinese wapens nie in Suid-Afrikaanse hawens toegelaat is nie, beskik Mugabe se weermag nou oor 'n gespesialiseerde vliegveld vir dié doel.
* Stellings dat "vryheidsliedjies" waarin volksmoord op Boere en blankes aangehits word as die ANC se "kultuurerfenis" beskou moet word.
* Die moord op Eugene Terre'Blanche. Blykbaar het die twee swartes maar drie weke by hom gewerk voordat hulle tot die daad oorgegaan het, wat mag dui op 'n sluipmoordmotief.

As 'n mens bogaande elemente bymekaar tel, is dit gelyk aan vyf. Die totale scenario wat hierdeur geskets word, kan op die volgende neerkom.

Die moord op Terre'Blanche is van simboliese aard en was nodig om die land in beroering te bring en rassepolarisering te skep sodat Suid-Afrika se "oehoeroe" kan begin. Malema het so pas in Zimbabwe beraadslaag om militêre steun van die Zimbabwiese weermag in geval van gevegte op Suid-Afrikaanse plase te bekom. Die Chinese wapens wat inkom, gaan gebruik word om 'n groot aantal Zimbabwiese en Suid-Afrikaanse swartes te bewapen ten einde ons blanke boere van hul eiendom te beroof. Selfs stedelinge kan aangeval word.

Tydens die ontwapeningsproses van die afgelope paar jaar het die ANC gesorg dat hy blanke wapeneienaars intimideer om hul wapens te gaan inhandig. Groot getalle mense is dus nou weerloos teenoor wat die volgende fase van die "nasionale demokratiese revolusie" ook al gaan behels.

Die moorde op drie AWB-manne destyds in Bophutswana deur 'n plaaslike swart polisieman was 'n sleuteloomblik in die sielkundige oorlog wat daar destyds teen die Afrikaner gevoer is en was bedoel om ons magteloosheid voor die opkomende swart mag te demonstreer. Die onwilligheid van die voormalige generaals en Suid-Afrikaanse Weermag om die eerste fase van die revolusie met geweld te stuit was die aanleidende oorsaak daartoe dat 'n paar vedwaalde AWB's al was wat destyds weerstand teen die "bevrydingsbeweging" se totale oorname van die land en sy hulpbronne wou bied.

Maar laat ons nie vashaak op die legio strategiese foute van die verlede nie en eerder konsentreer op wat ons nou te doen staan.

Die Afrikaner moet besef dat hy voor die grootste uitdaging sedert 1899 en die Britse inval die land te staan gekom het. In 'n wesentlike sin gaan dit oor die Derde Vryheidsoorlog wat vir alle praktiese doeleindes reeds begin het, want die sogenaamde "misdaadaanvalle" wat ons tans sien, word elders in Afrika orals as 'n vorm van oorlogvoering erken. Die Afrikaan hou nie van 'n sterk opponent nie en val by voorkeur die swakkere aan - vroue, kinders, bejaardes of mense wat slaap en onverhoeds betrap kan word. Dat Eugene Terre'Blanche op sy bed gevind is, laat vele reeds aflei dat hy tydens die aanval geslaap het.

Ons verkeer op die vooraand van 'n baie onsekere tydvak waartydens die huidige geweld gaan voortduur en te eniger oomblik drasties mag eskaleer tot volskaalse burgeroorlog, rasseoorlog, volksmoord of enige van die aardige versameling konflikte wat sedert 1950 aanhoudend in Afrika suid van die Sahara woed. Ons is, benewens handwapens en jaggewere, grotendeels ontwapen. Die ANC beheer die outomatiese wapens, asook die pantserskool op Bloemfontein van waar hy die hele land kan aanval.

Tesame met sy Zimbabwiese bondgenoot wat hom van bykomende wapens en ammunisie, asook logistiek, kan voorsien, is die tafel gedek vir die ANC om die Afrikanerboer finaal van sy grond te verdryf en ook in die stede 'n skrikbewind te begin voer, want as die land se plase beset kan word, waarom daar ophou en nie ook die huise beset nie?

Die buiteland gaan ons vir seker nie help nie, hoewel dit lyk asof Brittanje besig is om - heelwat te laat - sy groteske fout agter te kom deur vanaf 1978 radikale revolusie in sowel Zimbabwe as Suid-Afrika te steun. Nie net het Brittanje die deur vir China oopgemaak om hier oor te neem nie, maar hy het vir hom vyande in die vorm van sowel ZANU-PF as die ANC geskep. Hoewel Brittanje, asook die VSA onder Obama, met gevoude hande sal toekyk hoe ons uitgemoor word, sien hulle waarskynlik vir die eerste keer in jare in die Afrikaner 'n moontlike teenmag in Suider-Afrika wat revolusionêre anargie soos in Zimbabwe kan keer.

Die gewone Afrikaner sal attent gemaak moet word in watter bestaanskrisis ons verkeer, met die onweerswolke wat vanaf die vliegveld in Marange tot rondom ons huise en plase besig is om saam te pak.

As die laaste oorsese toeris ná die sokkerwêreldbeker op die vliegtuig klim, gaan oehoeroe heel waarskynlik begin. Ons het nie veel tyd nie.

Wat veral nou vermy moet word, is ongekoördineerde aksies deur emosioneel opgeruide mense. Ons wil nooit weer 'n voorval soos die AWB-slagoffers in Bophutatswana sien nie. Ons sal onsself in 'n volksweermag moet organiseer, wettiglik en met die wettige wapens en ammunisie waaroor ons tans beskik. Tydens die tweede wêreloorlog het 'n klein landjie soos Finland teen die Rooi Leër staande gebly, bloot deur die doeltreffende gebruik van skerpskutters en jagters. Umkhonto we Sizwe en ZANU-PF mag tans beter bewapen as ons wees, danksy hul oorname van die Weermag en die inkomende Chinese wapens, maar ons gaan 'n defensiewe oorlog veg op ons eie grondgebied, op ons eie plase en in ons eie voorstedelike strate.

Ek het volle vertroue in die Afrikaner se organisatoriese vermoëns en uiteindelik word elke oorlog op grond van organisasie, meer as enigiets anders, gewen.

Soos die ou militêre wysheid lui: Die oningewydes praat strategie terwyl die ervarenes logistiek gesels.

Die oomblik as ons hierdie staat en veral die munisipaliteite los, sal hy vanself in duie stort.

Slegs 'n sterk staat kan 'n sterk weermag hê. Dit maak nie saak hoeveel Chinese wapens deur Zimbabwe gaan inkom nie, as die oorlog regtig in alle erns begin, sal ons aanstons die oorhand verkry.

Ons het niks méér te vrees as die huidige geweld waaraan ons reeds blootgestel is nie. Laat die ANC en sy ZANU-PF-bondgenoot dus sy oorlog ontketen. Ons is nog nie reg vir hulle nie, maar ek is seker ons kan binne enkele weke of maande onsself in so 'n mate organiseer dat geen Westerse invalsmag ons sommer sal verower nie, wat nog te sê die opgesweepte, maar ongeorganiseerde hordes van die bevrydingsbewegings.

Boers, Afrikaners unite in mourning over Terre’Blanche murder
Afrikaans civil-rights leaders ask UN, EU, US intervention: to ‘stop the bloodbath of our people’….
The Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (Afrikaner Defence Movement) ’s general secretary Andre Visagie has laid the blame for the gruesome murder of their martyred founder/leader Eugene Ney Terre’Blanche, 69, this past Easter weekend squarely at the feet of the ruling African National Congress’ aggressive youth leader Julius Malema ‘s illegal anti-Afrikaner public hate-chants ‘Kill the Boer’ and ‘Shoot the Boer”. .

Visagie told Sapa the party blamed Malema directly for creating the atmosphere of hatred which had led to their cruelly-slain elderly leader’s martyrdom. In a telephonic interview with the South African Press Association, Visagie said there would be "revenge" – but what form this would take would be decided on later – after Mr Terre’Blanche’s funeral.

Only then would the various Afrikaner- and Boer groups get together for a May 1 summit conference in Pretoria. “All our leaders and members of the AWB will come together and decide on what actions we will take to revenge Terre'Blanche's death. Our leader's death is directly linked to Julius Malema's banned 'shoot the Boer' hate-song," said Visagie. Many Afrikaner- and Boer-families have broken off their holidays and returned home in preparation of the Terre’Blanche funeral. View Malema’s hates-speech singing below on this YouTube video in which he openly defied the Jan 2 2010 Gauteng High Court ruling banning the African National Congress member and leaders from singing it publicly because it ’incited violence against a vulnerable minority:”

Terre'Blanche killing: AWB vows revenge

The Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) has vowed to exact revenge for the death of their leader as the country's president, Jacob Zuma, sought to calm growing racial tensions.

Eugene Terre'Blanche, leader of the AWB movement, was found bludgeoned and hacked to death on Saturday at his farm in Ventersdorp. Two black farm workers involved in an apparent wage dispute were arrested at the scene.

The AWB has since ramped up the language of a race war. Its spokesperson, Andre Visagie, said: "The death of Mr Terre'Blanche is a declaration of war by the black community of South Africa to the white community that has been killed for 10 years on end."

Land of murder
Visagie warned other countries to avoid sending their teams to the Soccer World Cup in June as they would be travelling "to a land of murder". He added: "We will decide upon the action we are going to take to avenge Mr Terre'Blanche's death."

The AWB accused African National Congress Youth League leader Julius Malema of having blood on his hands. It blamed the killing on his recent singing of the apartheid-era protest song Ayesaba Amagwala [The Cowards are Scared].

Malema expressed fear that his life was at risk, citing a right-wing conspiracy. Last week the ANC said it was concerned about an SMS in circulation which appeared to offer a bounty for his death. The ANC has defended the song as no more than a way to remember a history of oppression, but a party spokesperson said it would now re-examine the issue in the light of recent criticism.

On Sunday at Ventersdorp, in the North West Province, AWB followers clad in paramilitary khaki laid flowers at the gate of Terre'Blanche's farm.

The 69-year-old was killed by two farm workers who claimed that he refused to pay them their monthly salaries of R350 rand each. The workers, aged 21 and 15, reportedly smashed a window to enter Terre'Blanche's home and killed him with a knobkerrie and a panga. A police source told the Sunday Times the pair alleged Terre'Blanche had threatened to kill them when they went to his farm for their money. "They claim they killed him in self defence," the officer said.

The men, who were said to have waited for police to arrive and arrest them, are due to appear in court on Tuesday.

The killing sparked fierce debate on race relations in a country where white farmers have become increasingly vocal, claiming thousands of them have been murdered since the end of white minority rule in 1994.

Last month the former president F W De Klerk wrote to Zuma warning that Malema was creating an increasingly febrile mood. He said: "All this is beginning to create a volatile atmosphere in which any additional intemperate statement or action might spark an unfortunate incident."

Explosive case
Frans Cronje, deputy director of the South African Institute of Race Relations, said: "It could be an explosive case, especially if the ANC don't back down."

Zuma appealed for calm following the "terrible deed". In a statement he asked South Africans not to allow "agent provocateurs" to take advantage of the situation by "inciting or fuelling racial hatred".

Political leaders in South Africa must "think" before they make statements, which could be "misunderstood", Zuma said on South African Broadcasting Corporation radio on Saturday.

"This happening must indeed say to us as leaders we need to think before we make statements in public that might be misunderstood to be encouraging the opposite of what we are trying to do -- to build our new nation -- irrespective of what quarter they come from, so that no one could attempt to say that what we say is not helping the process of nation-building"

On Sunday night, Zuma said calm needed to prevail in South Africa.

"All leaders who lead this country, from different political formations and non-governmental organisations, should unite in the call for calm.

"I know for a fact that those who have been close to Mr Terre'Blanche, they must be feeling a pain, but it is this time that we take our leadership responsibility to make this country unite in calling for a stop of violence," said Zuma. "Violent crime must be stopped and defeated by all of us."

Zuma, who said Terre'Blanche's murder was a "sad moment" for the country termed the act "cowardly".

"I condemn this cowardly act and the murder of Mr Terre'Blanche. It's not acceptable in our society. In due course we will know what is it that led to this terrible action."

'Has-been personality'
Jackson Mthembu, an ANC spokesperson, also denied any causal link between the protest song and the murder of Terre'Blanche. But he also appeared to shift the party's position: "The ANC is prepared to look at whether it is appropriate to continue singing it in this manner. We will ... look at what we can do."

The opposition Democratic Alliance warned of a risk of polarisation with a dangerous outcome. Leader Helen Zille, said: "The murder of Eugene Terre'Blanche will inevitably polarise and inflame passions in South Africa at a time when tensions are already running high ... This could have tragic consequences and it is essential that all leaders stand together now and call for calm."

Terre'Blanche had threatened war on South Africa's white minority government in the 1980s when it began to make what he considered dangerous concessions that endangered South Africa's white race. Described yesterday as a bully and buffoon, his predictions of doom under a multiracial democracy proved hollow and his support dwindled to a tiny rump.

"He was a has-been personality," said Allister Sparks, a veteran political analyst. "His influence is absolutely minimal. I regarded him as one of the most remarkably powerful orators I've ever heard. He spoke with a great passion and could really move people, but that was before 1994 when he was trying to mount his rather crazy resistance campaign." - Sapa, guardian.co.uk © Guardian News and Media 2010

Terre'Blanche death will 'polarise'


Cape Town -The killing of far-right leader Eugene Terre'Blanche could tempt isolated retaliation from white extremists, amid fears of flaring racial tensions, analysts say.

The attack came as South Africa's readied to showcase 16 years of democracy at the football World Cup in June.

President Jacob Zuma was quick to call for calm early on Sunday, just hours after Terre'Blanche's bloodied body was found on his farm.

His extremist AWB, which carried out a wave of deadly bombings ahead of South Africa's first all-race polls in 1994, also urged calm.

The AWB, known for its swastika-style emblem and paramilitary style in the past, said it would co-ordinate its reaction at a meeting on May 1.

But some of its members have called for an immediate reprisal.

"The right-wing movement in general is very fragmented," said analyst Dirk Kotze at the University of South Africa.

"We cannot expect something as a general retaliation in terms of big, major events."

But he added: "What might be a possibility is very much isolated, singular events which are very exceptionally difficult to predict."

Aubrey Matshiqi of the Centre for Policy Studies, which describes itself as an independent policy research body, agreed.

"I do not believe this killing takes us closer to racial civil war," saiid Matshiqi.

"He and his organisation were on the fringe not only of South African politics but on the fringe of even what we'd call white or even Afrikaner politics."

AWB links death to song

Terre'Blanche's radical AWB group have linked his killing to a controversial refrain from a sung adopted by the controversial ruling party youth leader Julius Malema: "kill the Boer", the Afrikaans word for farmer.

Outraged critics claim the slogan, recently banned in two court rulings, incites anti-white violence.

Zuma's ruling African National Congress (ANC) has said the song is part of the the history of South Africa's liberation struggle.

Nevertheless, the controversy over the song and now Terre'Blanche's brutal killing had created a delicate situation, said David Bruce, a senior researcher at the Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation.

"The combination of that song and that killing creates the motivation for a white right-wing mobilisation... but potentially, the security agencies will be able to neutralise these kind of things," he said.

"Terre'Blanche could be seen as an embodiment of the kind of enemy described in the song," he said: but the term was also likely to tap into fears of whites, who number some 10% of the population.

"The term Boer has no strict boundary: it can refer to the white farmers, to the Afrikaners or to the whites in general. That's what makes a lot of people afraid," said Bruce.

"A lot of people see in that song a general endorsement of violence against white people."

Marginalised presence

South Africa is one of the world's most crime-affected nations with a daily average of 50 murders.

And more than a decade after the fall of the apartheid system, massive social divisions along race lines persist.

Far-right extremism remains a marginalised but shady presence: a marathon treason trial against 21 right-wingers, which started in 2003, is still dragging through the courts.

The government's calls for calm after Terre'Blanche's killing, echoed by opposition parties, was prompted by uncertainty about conservative reaction or retaliation, said Kotze.

"That can ignite, it can serve as a catalyst for much more serious problems."

Zuma on Sunday urged politicians to show unity, saying it was their responsibility to "stay away from statements that might reverse nation building and racial cohesion".

"It is a key test for the leadership of Jacob Zuma: he has to make minority groups feel more secure and to distance himself from Malema," said political analyst Daniel Silke.

"If Zuma shows leadership, then we will avoid retaliation or an escalation of violence."

Johannesburg - The SACC and Sanco on Monday called for political parties to show strong leadership following the murder of Eugene Terre'Blanche two days ago.

"We call upon other political leaders to step forward and provide the reconciling leadership that is necessary for the country at this time.

"Such leadership will exclude inflammatory speeches or songs which have potential to plunge the country into a cycle of violence," said SA Council of Churches (SACC) general secretary, Eddie Makue.

He sent his organisation's condolences to the relatives and friends of AWB leader Terre'Blanche.

"We are shocked by the murder of Mr Terre'Blanche and we condemn it and reject any and all attempts to justify this act," he said in a statement.

Makue said the murder of Terre'Blanche has the potential to create divisions and conflict that might divide the nation and destroy the reconciliation gains made since 1994.

He praised President Jacob Zuma, General Bheki Cele and Police Minister, Nathi Mthethwa for their positive responses to the murder, and encouraged other political leaders to follow suit.

'Everybody should stay calm'


The SA National Civic Organisation (Sanco) condemned the murder and called for calm.

"We are concerned and condemn the callous and brutal murder of the man who was on the mend of his ways of being a patriotic leader," Sanco spokesperson Dumisane Mthalane said in a statement.

"We call upon our people to desist from such criminality irrespective of the nature of incitement.

"Everybody should stay calm and allow the security agents to complete the necessary work.

"We call upon our leaders to exercise extreme restraint from making inflammatory comment that have the potential to incite violence and lawlessness," he said.

"We need to provide top class leadership to all our members during times of difficulties."

Sanco further called for a national resolve to fight all crime and said the murder of Terre'Blanche should strengthen the resolve to end farm related killings and all crimes in the country.

Two of Terre'Blanche's farm workers, aged 15 and 28, have been arrested in connection with his murder, which they allegedly confessed to and said was motivated by a salary dispute.

It is with sock and shame for us overseas watching this unnecessary events unfolding in South Africa. Most blame should be placed in front of the current government who allowed tension in SA to reach to this point! Songs and in particular with the words “kill the boer” is unacceptable and should be punished with jail sentence for minimum 20 years. Acts like this is not reconciling but dividing a nation! How can reconciliation take place if the government allow such acts? No argument to allow this should even be allowed or considered, the current government failed all people in SA to not take a serious stance against this. It is similar towards the crime waves ruining South Africa’s future for all. If such song is allowed in the US it will result in violence. For too long has the current SA government turned a blind eye and should now face some of the consequences. The act of killing any person should be punished by the highest court and as such is the need of the death penalty required. It is a pity in the wake of the Soccer World Cup that this is the message SA is sending to the world. What a shame on the ANC government who not just failed South African citizens but also the world and the good that Nelson Mandela and FD De Klerk performed!

The SACC really should shut the hell up. You have no idea how to lead people anyway. If your collective religions were worth anything people like Malema and ET would not have become who they are. Go home, read your bible, stay out of politics and teach people to live decent lives before commenting on anything again! Bunch of morons!

Why should everyone suddenly stay calm if for too long killing of farmers were allowed. To stay calm is like turning a blind eye towards the injustice. I think the real Boer has now been driven towards a point of not accepting and tolerating any injustice. This killing of Eugene Terre'Blance may be the turning point to stop the long overdue unnecessary killing of farmers. No human deserve to die in this inhumane manner! Unfortunately calls for calm will not ease the pain and hatred caused by killing of farmers and the violence that is allowed in South Africa. It is time the government start saving the day by taking serious action against crime and violence or face the consequences.

Media to be allowed onto farm
Call for 'reconciling leadership'
HOT TOPIC: Eugene Terre'Blancge

Ventersdorp - The mother of a 15-year-old murder suspect told Associated Press Television News on Monday that her son says he struck AWB leader Eugene Terre'Blanche with an iron rod after the farmer refused to pay him.

"My son admitted that they did the killing," the mother said in an exclusive interview conducted in Tswana from her two-room cement home in Tshing township, on the outskirts of Ventersdorp.

She said she spoke to the teenager at the Ventersdorp police station on Saturday after he turned himself in along with his alleged accomplice, also a farm worker.

Police have refused to identify either of the suspects by name. By law, a minor accused of any charge cannot be identified without permission from a judge.

The AWB planned to march on Monday to the police station to demand the police bring out the two suspects.

'My son doesn't like to be in trouble'

Police say the two have been charged with murder and will appear in court on Tuesday.

The mother said her son told her that when he and his co-worker asked Terre'Blanche for their money, he told them first to bring in the cows. After they had brought in the cows they again asked for their money, which he then refused to give them.

"He said that the man (farm worker) told him to wait while he went to the storeroom. He came back with an iron rod. He started hitting Terre'Blanche, with four blows to the head. Then my son says he took the iron rod and hit him with three blows," the mother said.

She appeared a bit bewildered and scared. "My son was a person who doesn't like to be in trouble," she said softly.

At the farm on Monday, a big grader was being used to dig a hole for Terre'Blanche in the family graveyard, where he is to be buried after a church service in Ventersdorp on Friday.

'We are not racists'

"This was such an unnecessary thing," Terre'Blanche's brother, Andries, told the AP, as he sat on a grey marble grave. "We are not racists, we just believe in purity of race."

AWB leaders have been using Terre'Blanche's killing as a rallying point for their cause, with secretary-general Andre Visagie claiming on Sunday that Terre'Blanche's brutal death was "a declaration of war" by blacks against whites.

He also warned countries against sending their soccer teams without protection to "a land of murder".

Visagie said the teenager was a casual worker and that the older man was a full-time employee of Terre'Blanche, who had been taking care of the garden of the family home in Ventersdorp.

Police said Terre'Blanche was lying on his bed in the farmhouse outside the town when he was attacked, between 17:00 and 18:00 on Saturday.

Visagie and other members of the group have blamed African National Congress Youth leader Julius Malema, saying he spread hate speech that led to Terre'Blanche's killing.

'Not hate speech'

Malema incited controversy last month when he led college students in a song that included the lyrics "shoot the boer".

The song sparked a legal battle in which the ANC challenged a High Court that ruled the lyrics as unconstitutional.

The ANC insists the song is a valuable part of its cultural heritage and that the lyrics - which also refer to the farmers as thieves and rapists - are not intended literally and are therefore not hate speech.

Terre'Blanche, a bearded, charismatic 69-year-old, co-founded and led the AWB. Its red, white and black insignia resembles a Nazi swastika, but with three prongs instead of four.

Terre'Blanche emerged in the 1970s and threatened to take the country by force if white rule ended. He was known to arrive at meetings on horseback flanked by masked bodyguards dressed in khaki or black.

After serving six years in prison for attacking two black workers, he re-emerged in 2004 with renewed vigour for his cause.

He lived in relative obscurity in recent years on his farm outside Ventersdorp, about 110km northwest of Johannesburg.

Visagie said that was where Terre'Blanche had been spending most of his time since he had heart surgery a few weeks ago.

Call for 'reconciling leadership'


Ventersdorp - The party of murdered white supremacist Eugene Terre'Blanche ruled out any violent retaliation for his death on Monday.

The killing by two black farm workers on Saturday had stoked fears of possible violence and the AWB party had earlier spoken of avenging Terre'Blanche's murder.

"The AWB is not going to engage in any form of violent retaliation to avenge Mr Terre'Blanche's death," Pieter Steyn, a general in the AWB, told reporters.

"We appeal for people to remain calm. Anyone engaging in any form of violence is not doing it as AWB."

Zuma on Terre'Blanche murder
Township residents fear revenge


Johannesburg - The ANC Youth League president Julius Malema's singing of a traditional ANC struggle song, containing the words "shoot the boer" should not be linked to the murder of Eugene Terre'Blanche.

"The ANC is concerned and worried about the continued utterances by some political parties, particularly the AWB, Freedom Front [Plus] and AfriForum, who have linked the death to the singing by Malema of the struggle song 'Ayesaba amagwala' (cowards are running) in some recent public gatherings," African National Congress spokesperson Jackson Mthembu said in a statement.

He said any claims that blacks intended to harm other race groups, in particular whites, were "baseless and devoid of all truth".

Mthembu said the police had not established any link between the two during their preliminary investigations in the killing of Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging leader Eugene Terre'Blanche.

Terre'Blanche was murdered on Saturday after an alleged labour dispute with his two farmworkers.

A 21-year-old man and boy, 15, were arrested and charged with the killing and would appear in court on Tuesday.

"It is our belief that the continued linkage of the singing of the song by Comrade Malema to the killing of Mr Terre'Blanche, is not only mischievous but also inciteful and meant to fuel racial polarisation in our country during a highly emotion-charged and sensitive moment," Mthembu said.

He said the "repeated lie" was also meant to cause harm in the person of Malema.

"It is our view that this concerted campaign against the ANCYL president waged by certain organisations in our society, including the Freedom Front (Plus), might lead to unintended consequences that South Africa cannot afford."

Mthembu said the time(s) called for all South Africans to unite, mourn the death and bury Terre'Blanche with the dignity and respect he deserves without name-calling or blame apportioning.

"The ANC once again calls on all political parties and (the) South African society to leave the investigation to the police."

"Let us not add fuel to an already very sensitive atmosphere in the wake of Mr Terre'Blanche's death by making unfounded and dangerous speculative statements."|

KIMBERLEY. – Die regering gaan die ANC-jeugleier, mnr. Julius Malema, nie teë nie, en daarom is die wit man gedoem tot uitwissing.

“Ons word geen ander alternatief gelaat nie, as om ons eie lewens te verdedig,” sê mnr. André Visagie, sekretaris-generaal van die AWB wat ook die Noord-Kaap in die AWB-bestuur verteenwoordig. Hy het gereageer op die moord op die AWB se leier, mnr. Eugene Terre’Blanche.

“Die politieke aanloop tot dit wat gebeur het, is vir ons ’n onontbreekbare gedeelte van die elemente wat bygedra het tot die voorval.”

Hy het verwys na die vroeëre Vryburg-situasie toe ’n kind met ’n mes of skêr gesteek is en mnr. Manne Dipico (toe Noord-Kaapse premier) en oudpres. Nelson Mandela vir die oortreder by die tronk (in Kimberley) gaan blomme en ’n beurs gee het.

“Jy sien hoe word mense wat blankes aanval deur die regering bygestaan en vertroetel. Jy voeg dit by Malema se uitlatings van skiet die boere want hulle is verkragters.

“Jy voeg hierby mnr. Gwede Mantashe, sekretaris-generaal van die ANC, se goedpraat van dit wat Malema sê deur dit as tradisonele vryheidsliedjies af te maak en voeg hierby pres. Jacob Zuma se stilswyende kondonasie van Malema se uitroep om die wit man dood te maak, en jy kan nie anders dink nie, dat dit niks anders is nie as ’n doelwit wat die regering wou bereik.”

Hy het per telefoon aan Volksblad gesê: “Zuma se kantoor het my ’n halfuur gelede gebel en vir my gevra wat mev. Terre’Blanche se telefoonnommer is sodat hulle meegevoel aan haar kan oordra.

“Daardie meegevoel is vir ons niks werd nie vergeleke met wat hy (Zuma) kon beteken het as hy net standpunt ingeneem het en Malema repudieer het.

“Met die afgryslike wyse waarop blankes nou deurlopend vermoor word – en ons praat van Colenso, Brits en Potchefstroom, alles wat die afgelope twee weke gebeur het – kan ’n mens nie anders nie as om tot die gevolgtrekking te kom dat Malema hom nie steur aan selfs ’n hofinterdik wat Donderdag teen hom verkry is om hierdie liedjies nie te sing nie.

“Dit maak die regering se beroep op mense om hul onwettige wapens in te lewer, niks anders nie as ’n beroep op die blankes om selfmoord te pleeg.

“Die ontwapende wit man in Suid-Afrika is ’n dooie wit man. Ons het dit geleer van Retief af en Terre’Blanche het dit male sonder tal in sy toesprake gesê.”

Visagie het gesê dit is ironies dat Terre’Blanche vermoor is juis oor die Paasnaweek toe God vir ons sondes gesterf het.

Visagie het gesê die AWB sal op sy nasionale byeenkoms op 1 Mei besluit watter aksie-stappe gedoen gaan word om
Terre’Blanche se dood te wreek.

“Ons kan nie anders nie as om die afleiding te maak dat die wit man gedoem is om vermoor te word in Suid-Afrika op ’n veel wreder wyse as wat ons ooit in Zimbabwe gesien het. Terre’Blanche is met ’n panga en waterpype doodgeslaan,” het Visagie gesê.

KAAPSTAD. – Politieke leiers oor die spektrum heen het gister geëis dat pres. Jacob Zuma die Kill the Boer-lied in die openbaar veroordeel en sy ANC-jeugleier in die bek ruk.

Die wrede moord op mnr. Eugene Terre’Blanche, die AWB-leier en boer, het rassespanning en -verdeeldheid die afgelope naweek op die spits gedryf.

Hoewel hulle die moord nie met die struggle-lied verbind wat mnr. Julius Malema herhaaldelik op openbare byeenkomste sing nie, het selfs oudpres. FW de Klerk gister aangevoer dit skep ’n atmosfeer waarin “ontvanklike jong swart plaaswerkers” kan voel sulke optrede is geregverdig.

Dr. Pieter Mulder, leier van die VF+, het gisteroggend uit Doebai gesê hy sal sy pos as adjunkminister heroorweeg as die ANC-regering aanhou weier om te erken dat sy senior lede se opruiende uitsprake en vryheidsliedere nasiebou vernietig.

Volgens hom help dit min Zuma maan Suid-Afrikaners tot kalmte, maar Malema word toegelaat om wit mense met opruiende liedere uit te tart.

“Dat Zuma dié lied nog nie veroordeel het nie, is ’n ernstige fout. Jy kan dit nie losmaak van die at­mosfeer wat nou heers nie. Die land kan ontplof.”

Mulder gaan by die eerste en beste geleentheid met Zuma praat, “want ek weet nie of hy die emosionele impak van die lied op ons mense verstaan nie”.

Hy het gesê hy is nie verleë oor sy pos as adjunkminister van landbou nie en kan uit protes daaruit bedank.

Ook me. Helen Zille, DA-leier, het van Zuma geëis om in die openbaar standpunt teen haatspraak in te neem “en nie toe te laat dat nasiebou deur ’n jong mannetjie wat buite orde is, gekelder word nie”.

“Liedere soos Kill the Boer skep ’n klimaat waarin geweld as ’n oplossing vir probleme beskou word, hetsy deur individue of kollektief. Ons moet nou, meer as tevore, teen rasseverdeeldheid waak,” het Zille gesê.

Die IVP en die ACDP het voorts ’n beroep gedoen op die president om leiding te neem om verdeeldheid tussen wit en swart te ontlont.

Intussen het De Klerk gesê hoewel sy politieke oortuigings wesenlik van dié van Terre’Blanche verskil het, is hy geskok en woedend.

Volgens hom vererger Malema se besoek aan Zimbabwe die situasie. “Hy vererger die spanning wat nou tussen verskillende gemeenskappe heers deur pres. (Robert) Mugabe en Zanu-PF se anti-wit-rassisme openlik te ondersteun.”

De Klerk het Zuma op 24 Maart in ’n ope brief teen die opruiende toon van nasionale debatvoering gewaarsku.

Hy het gesê dit is besig om ’n plofbare klimaat te skep waarin enige bykomende aanhitsende verklaring of aksie tot ’n ongelukkige voorval kan lei.

‘Ek hoor dit gaan net oor geld,’ sê verdagte se pa
Stap deur die moordhuis
Linda de Beer
Ventersdorp. – Twee groot kolle op die houtbasis van mnr. Eugène Terre’Blanche se bed waar die bloed deur die beddegoed en matras gesyfer het, was gister nog sigbaar ná die grusame panga-moord op die regse leier.

Al wat van sy teenwoordigheid oorgebly het, is ’n leë velletjie Rennie-tablette teen sooibrand en ’n houer Coryx-bruistablette teen griep en verkoue. In die kombuis het ’n vuil braaipan op die stoof gestaan.

Me. Bea Terre’Blanche, Terre’Blanche se dogter en enigste kind, het gister die plaashuis waar haar pa vermoor is, oopgemaak vir die media.

Volgens me. Terre’Blanche het haar pa nog nie die twee werkers wat van sy moord verdink word vir Maart betaal nie. Hy het volgens haar ’n reëling met hulle getref om hulle ná die langnaweek te betaal.

Haar pa en ma, Martie, het altyd die werkers se lone aan die einde van ’n maand bespreek. Hulle is elke maand betaal, maar haar pa het met die Paasnaweek voorhande glo nie kans gehad om sy banksake betyds af te handel nie.

Terre’Blanche het ’n goeie verhouding met sy werkers gehad wat versterk is deur hul werk met die diere op die plaas, het sy dogter gesê.

Intussen het die AWB ’n radikale ommekeer van sy vroeëre standpunt gemaak en ’n “oorlogsverklaring” teen swart mense in Suid-Afrika teruggetrek.

Tientalle AWB-ondersteuners het gisteroggend by Ventersdorp se trimpark byeengekom vir ’n vergadering waar die media verbied is.

Mnr. Pieter Steyn, AWB-kommandant van die Wes-Rand, het agterna gesê die organisasie se leiers het sy lede by die vergadering gevra om Terre’Blanche se moord nie met geweld te wreek, optogte te hou of rassistiese opmerkings te maak nie.

Steyn het gesê mnr. André Visagie, sekretaris-generaal van die AWB, se verklaring eergister dat die organisasie hom gaan bewapen om Terre’- Blanche se dood te wreek, is in die “hitte van die stryd” gedoen.

“Ons lede is emosioneel en baie kwaad. Ons het hulle tot orde, kalmte en selfbeheersing gemaan, maar dit raak toenemend moeilik. Ek weet nie wat sal gebeur as nóg ’n boer vermoor word nie,” het Steyn gesê.

Me. Terre’Blanche het gesê sy en haar ma is platgeslaan deur die moord op haar pa. Al is dit vir haar moeilik, het sy besluit om die huis oop te stel vir die media sodat die wêreld die werklikheid van plaasmoorde in Suid-Afrika kan sien.

Die twee verdagtes in die moord sal vandag met geslote deure in die hof verskyn omdat die een glo minderjarig is.

Hy kry ’n grafkelder

Mnr. Eugène Terre’Blanche se “tradisionele Afrikaner-begrafnisdiens” is Vrydag om 12:00 in die Afrikaanse Protestantse kerk (APK) op Ventersdorp.

Ondersteuners van die AWB-leier is gevra om nie politieke toesprake te maak nie. Geen vlae, politieke toesprake of optogte sal by die begrafnis toegelaat word nie.

Terre’Blanche word in die familiekerkhof op sy plaas, Witrandjiesfontein, begrawe. Die gat vir die dubbele graf, waar sy vrou eendag langs hom begrawe sal word, is gister gegrawe.

Mnr. André Nienaber, ’n familielid, het gesê die familiegebruik is om grafkelders te bou.

Dit beteken die graf word met bakstene en sement uitgevoer wat gepleister en geverf word. ’n Plaat kom bo-op om vog uit te hou, waarna die graf met riviersand gevul word.

Interview with suspect's mom slammed

Ventersdorp - Police had to separate black and white groups with razor wire as tension mounted outside the Ventersdorp Magistrate's Court on Tuesday ahead of the appearance of two people expected to be charged with the murder of AWB leader Eugene Terre'Blanche.

This was after a group of white people hit and pushed a group of black people outside the court after they sang the old and new national anthems at each other ahead of the appearance of the two farm workers accused of murdering Terre'Blanche on Saturday.

Police wedged themselves into the middle of the group to separate them and then pushed the black group away and began erecting razor wire to separate them.

Physical confrontation

The fracas began when the white supporters of Terre'Blanche started singing Die Stem, South Africa's apartheid era anthem, and the black observers outside the court in return sang the old version of Nkosi Sikeleli Afrika.

The physical confrontation was believed to have started when a white woman sprayed the instant drink Kool Aid at one of the black people singing.

Themba Mbatha, from Ekurhuleni, who had been the target, said: "We are not here to fight and the worst thing that they did now is to separate us with barbed wire."

He said they came in solidarity with farm workers, because they understood their battles.

Terre'Blanche headed the far right wing Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) organisation, and his death was being linked to ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema's singing of the song "Shoot the boer".

Armoured vehicle stuck

As the police were unrolling the razor wire from their armoured vehicle, they drove into a ditch and got stuck, setting off the singing of the Afrikaner folk song "o, help 'n bietjie daar" (lend a hand), with some of the white people shouting, "find a boer and a tractor" and laughing at the police as they struggled to complete their task of separating the two races.

The white group then sang "Bobbejaan klim die berg" (the baboon climbs the mountain), before a farmer appealed for calm.

Heavy police presence ahead of Terre'Blanche appearance


Ventersdorp - The AWB claims to have had at least 3 000 applications from new members since its leader Eugene Terre'Blanche was murdered, spokesperson Pieter Steyn said on Tuesday.

"People say they are gatvol (fed up)," said Steyn outside the Ventersdorp Magistrate's Court, where two people were due to appear in connection with the murder of the leader of the far right wing group on Saturday.

Steyn said people had contacted them by telephone, via the internet, and had arrived at their offices, asking to become members.

Two newly joined AWB members, Shaun Labuschagne from Brakpan and his friend Dirkie Cronwright from Boksburg, were among the hundreds of people waiting for the court to open.

"We do not want to be excluded with whatever’s going to happen,” said Labuschagne, 31.

Both joined the AWB at the movement’s Ventersdorp head office on Monday night.

“The gun has been loaded a long time ago. They just pulled the trigger now,” said Cronwright, 26, who owns a cash loans and labour firm in Boksburg.

Situation extremely explosive

Labuschagne, who has two young daughters, said: “If you see what is happening around you, you need to make preparations.”

Gerhardus Brits, 35, from Mookgopong (formerly Naboomspruit), came to show solidarity to “my people”.

Brits, who is not an AWB member, came through alone on Tuesday morning, but said he expected about 15 to 20 friends to join him later in the day.

“I am here for the survival of our volk (people). To show we live. To show we are not going to be trampled on. If they bite we are going to bite back.”

He said the situation was extremely “explosive”.

“What happens here can have extremely serious repercussions.”

He said some people had to die for others to live.

“If you or I die there will only be a small article in the newspaper, but when a man like this dies, the world will see it," said Brits, who added that he had lost friends and family in farm attacks.

The AWB is linking Terre'Blanche's murder to ANC Youth League leader Julius Malema's singing of a song that contains the lyrics "shoot the boer".

AWB calls on Zuma to rein in Malema

Ventersdorp - A new leader of the Afrikaner Weerstandsbewging (AWB) would be appointed soon following the murder of Eugene Terre'Blanche over the weekend, the organisation said on Tuesday.

Spokesperson Pieter Steyn said once a new leader was appointed, the organisation would decide on its future.

He was speaking outside the Ventersdorp Magistrate's Court where two farm workers would appear for allegedly killing the right wing leader.

Call for calm

Steyn called for calm, saying: "There is nothing to fear, we are sad and heartbroken but there will be no revenge.

"Today's gathering is of solidarity, there will be no throwing of stones, no burning the library. After this we are going home."

Around 250 people had gathered outside the court by 08:30 on what started out as a rainy day.

Many people carried placards and waved the AWB and old South African flags.

Tension flared during a heated exchange between a Young Communist League member and a member of an organisation called Resistance against Communism (RAC).

Confrontation

The YCL's Themba Mbatha told Don Maltitz from RAC that racist farmers are the enemy.

"Those who abuse farm workers are the enemy, those who call us kaffirs are the enemy," he said.

Maltitz hit back saying farmers were being targeted and ANC Youth League president Julius Malema was the one creating racial hatred.

The confrontation was heated until Steyn intervened.

Once person handed out AWB badges outside court and a human barricade was set up by police officers preventing the crowd and the media from entering the court house.

Only a few family members were allowed in.

Dear KVB00002

Time will tell. Every action always leads to a reaction, which in turn, becomes and action thus turning into a reaction. In other words - The wheel has a way of turning. But it is not part of a human wheel nor the human plan.

Time will tell.

Eugene Terreblanche "White supremacist" smear campaign
Tuesday, April 6, 2010 - 11:23
..There has come a misconception of what Eugene Terreblanche was and what he represented. People think he was a white supremacist and that he represented apartheid at it's worst. But if you really look into it and listen to his beliefs and understand the history of the Boere, you would understand that this is not true.

Eugene Terreblanche was a nationalist, that is a person who believes that their nation, in this case Boere, should be free to rule themselves in their own territory.

na·tion·al·ism

(nsh-n-lzm, nshn-) n.

1. Devotion to the interests or culture of one's nation.
2. The belief that nations will benefit from acting independently rather than collectively, emphasizing national rather than international goals.
3. Aspirations for national independence in a country under foreign domination.
Past nationalist existed all over the world, the main difference from these and from what Terreblanche believed is that he did not want the whole country only part of it. Before he went to prison his view was much more radical and he was known as a tyrant among the blacks. He treated them terribly but after prison he was a changed man. His neighbours have commented that his people on his farm are some of the best looked after around there and one of his workers who was interviewed said that after Terreblanche came out he was a changed man, he even liked the children.

World wide they would like to paint a picture of a man who hates black people, that's just not true. Here is something he said not to long ago:

We fought the British Commonwealth, we can survive the ANC, The white man in South Africa is realizing that his salvation lies in self-government, in territories paid for by his ancestors. We still have the title deeds for land we bought from Africans – they are still valid and should be recognized by international law.

Even though some land where seized by the Apartheid government there are many farms that where bought and paid for from the native Africans. There are deeds, documented meetings with tribal leaders. The Voortrekker made their way up in South Africa by battering not bloodshed, the times there were bloodshed they were not the instigators. Then came the British colonial rule where they decided that the country should be segregated, if you look closely the Boere always tried to work with the black Africans but over the years it got twisted. Even Zuma has said in the speech the only valid white South Africans is the Afrikaner people, some has been here for 7 generations they cannot go anywhere else, they are no longer European.

One of the things that contribute to this image that the Eugene was a white supremacist, is the AWB flag, which looks like a swastika used by the Nazi's. People then assume they stem from there, which is far from the truth. A little small fact very few people know is that the very first concentration camp was in South Africa where over 100 000 wives and children of the Boere died in horrendous conditions. This was during the Boere-war, back then the black Africans and the Voortrekker's had a mutual enemy the British.

The AWB flag

Ventersdorp - The two farm workers, aged 15 and 28, accused of killing AWB leader Eugene Terre'Blanche had not yet been charged by lunchtime on Tuesday, National Director of Public Prosecutions Menzi Simelane said.

Speaking to the media outside the Ventersdorp Magistrate's Court, Simelane said the prosecuting authority had met representatives from the community, the AWB and the community policing forum to explain how court proceedings would unfold.

"On April 1st this year, the Child Justice Act was implemented which had different procedures for children.

"We wanted to make sure that everyone understands what had to be done.

"We then had a formal court appearance where the provision of the act was explained to the legal representatives," he said.

In camera

Simelane explained that proceedings would be held in camera as one of the accused was a minor.

"Both have to appear together and we can't separate them, that's why it is being held in camera."

The accused had not appeared in court by 12.45 and remained in holding cells. They would appear shortly.

"They have not been charged yet but when the formal part of the case resumes... it will be decided whether the accused will apply for bail," he said.

The act facilitates diverting children away from the mainstream criminal justice system, providing for offenders under 18 years who commit an offence to be dealt with differently to the regular criminal justice procedures or laws.

Police had earlier said the 15-year-old accused had not been released into his parents' custody for his own safety.

Boer van Zastron nuwe leier van AWB
2010-04-07 00:18


Ventersdorp. – Die man wat mnr. Eugene Terre’Blanche se skoene voortaan as leier van die AWB sal moet volstaan, is gister hier aangewys.

Mnr. Steyn von Ronge, ’n Vrystaatse boer uit die Zastron-omgewing wat reeds 20 jaar ’n lid van die AWB is, het amptelik die leisels oorgeneem. Dit kom ná ’n uitvoerende bestuursvergadering van die beweging.

Von Ronge het in ’n kort verklaring weer gesê die AWB sal nie verantwoordelikheid aanvaar vir “individuele vergeldingsaksies” nie. Hy het egter vinnig bygevoeg dat moorde op wit boere nie langer geduld sal word nie.

“Genoeg is genoeg. Ons is besig om nog veiligheidsplanne, binne die raamwerk van wetgewing, tot stand te bring. Ons kan egter nie die plan bekend maak nie,’’ het Von Ronge gesê.

Volgens Von Ronge is hulle tot dusver tevrede met die verloop van die regsproses ten opsigte van die vervolging van Terre’Blanche se vermeende moordenaars.

“Ons respekteer die landswette en glo en vertrou dit sal ’n regverdige proses wees. Ons is ook baie tevrede met ons lede se gedrag en optrede by die hof vandag.”

Hoewel die AWB weier om ledegetalle bekend te maak het Von Ronge bevestig dat nuwe aansoeke tot lidmaatskap “met duisende” toegeneem het.

PosOnderwerp: ET het wet op kinderarbeid oortree, sê Cosatu   Wed Apr 07, 2010 11:41 am

Weereens my vrae: Wie wil wees, maar is nog nie. Wie is die "..............." agter die skerms en hoeveel beplande gerieflike "sêgoed" gaan daar nog wees???

ET het wet op kinderarbeid oortree, sê Cosatu
2010-04-07 00:18


Kaapstad. – Mnr. Eugene Terre’Blanche, vermoorde AWB-leier, het wetgewing oor kinderarbeid oortree omdat hy ’n 15-jarige in diens gehad het.

Cosatu, sy provinsiale liggaam in Noordwes en die ANC het gesê hoewel hulle die moord op Terre’Blanche veroordeel, het die AWB-leier onwettige arbeidsverhoudinge bedryf.
Dít is in alle waarskynlikheid die rede vir die AWB-leier se moord.

Mnr. Gwede Mantashe, die ANC se sekretaris-generaal, het in ’n radio-onderhoud gesê die party is besorg oor die feit dat die minderjarige mede-beskuldigde in die moord op die plaas gewerk het.

“Mense kla oor die sing van die woorde ‘Skiet die boer’, maar daar is self ’n paar goed waaroor ons ná die begrafnis beswaar wil maak. Twee daarvan is die openlike waai van ou landsvlae en ’n ander is die feit dat ’n 15-jarige op die plaas gewerk het. Dis onwettig.”

Mnr. Zwelinzima Vavi, Cosatu-hoofsekretaris, het vroeër die week aan Volksblad gesê hoewel Terre’Blanche “nooit ’n vriend van ons was nie, het hy steeds ’n familie wat na hom opgesien het”.

Ook hy het die regerende party se sentimente herhaal dat die moord op die AWB-leier nie met die sing van “Skiet die boer” verbind moet word nie.

“Maar ons sal ons lede nie aanmoedig om dit te sing nie. Dit behoort aan ’n ander era.”

Cosatu het Terre’Blanche gistermiddag laat in ’n verklaring voorgehou as ’n toonbeeld van die “ergste soort werkgewer wat jy op Suid-Afrikaanse plase teëkom”. Die verdagtes wat gister in die hof verskyn het, het volgens Cosatu ’n maandelikse salaris van R300 ontvang.

“Ons aanvaar dié twee jong werkers was so desperaat dat hul enigste uitweg vir geregtigheid was om hul baas dood te slaan – ’n daad wat ons ten sterkste veroordeel.”

Die vakverbond het voorts aangevoer dat talle boere hul werkers mishandel, teen hulle diskrimineer en dat ’n “meester-en-slaaf”-verhouding op plase heers.

’n Opname wat Cosatu self onderneem het, toon tot ’n kwart van swart plaaswerkers meen hul werkgewers diskrimineer teen hulle en dat hulle mishandel word.

Mnr. Solly Phetoe, Cosatu-sekretaris in Noordwes, het gesê die AWB en sy vennote moet ophou om die moord met politiek te verbind.

“Die arme werkers (die twee moordverdagtes) is uitgebuit. Die ergste is die boer (Terre’Blanche) het kinderarbeid, wat onwettig is, gebruik.”
