This stirring new film on South Africa’s 1995 Rugby World Cup victory includes serious distortions of history. Directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Morgan Freeman as President Nelson Mandela, Invictus makes a major contribution towards the building up of the mythology of Nelson Mandela as a modern day idol.

Their Finest Hour

Invictus focuses on the New South Africa’s finest hour as the Springbok rugby team, led by Francois Pienaar, won the World Cup. It also focuses on President Nelson Mandela’s finest hour as he donned the Springbok rugby team’s green and gold jersey and cap and publicly associated with the Springbok’s triumph.

There is no doubt that this was probably Nelson Mandela’s most astute move to appear in public at the World Cup Finals in the Springbok uniform jersey and cap. One billion people were watching. This was, as Morgan Freeman playing Nelson Mandela in the film declared: “An opportunity!” Indeed any wise politician would seize the limelight and exploit such an opportunity to identify with his national team’s greatest moment of triumph.

In the context of the racially polarized New South Africa, this gesture was meaningful and it was appreciated. It particularly won Nelson Mandela much admiration and support from white South Africans to whom rugby was much more than their national sport. However, it was a political token amidst a much broader context of Marxist violence.

Racial Stereotypes

This beautifully crafted, stirring and inspiring film, Invictus, clearly has a political agenda. It has dangerous distortions of reality and a selective focus which portrays the whites in South Africa as narrow minded, disgruntled, racial bigots. In fact, all the white characters in Invictus are one or two dimensional, with no depth of character. Incredibly this even includes Matt Damon’s portrayal of Francois Pienaar, the South African rugby team captain. One never gets to see quite what makes him tick. His leadership seems completely inadequate to explain this spectacular triumph of the Springboks over the previously unbeatable Australian and New Zealand rugby teams.

A Political Hijack

Incredibly, Invictus boldly gives all the credit for the Springboks’ World Cup victory to President Nelson Mandela. This must be the first time in history that any head of state has been given the credit for a sport team’s achievements on the field. Does Queen Elizabeth II get the credit if England’s rugby team wins? Was US President Bush credited with American Olympic athlete’s achievements in Beijing?

An Astute Politician

It was undoubtedly a very wise and astute political move for Nelson Mandela to oppose his own party’s plans to abolish the Springbok green and gold uniform and symbols. Doubtless Nelson Mandela genuinely wanted the national team to win, not only for the desirable national unity it could inspire, but for the international prestige it could give to his government.

Ignoring the Context

However, the film maker should not have oversimplified the fascinating story by separating it from its real context of crime and violence after a brutal 30 year terrorist war waged by Nelson Mandela’s ANC.

Imaginative Idolatry

Time and again the film focuses on Mandela’s imprisonment on Robben Island, often with dream-like imaginative flashbacks of Nelson Mandela breaking rocks on Robben Island. The film even includes a pilgrimage to Mandela’s cell in the prison on Robben Island, but there is never any mention of why he was imprisoned.

The impression given is that he was imprisoned for opposing apartheid, but many people, including Bishop Desmond Tutu, vigorously opposed apartheid without ever being imprisoned.

The Unanswered Reason Why

The fact is that even Amnesty International refused to take on Nelson Mandela’s case because they asserted that he was no political prisoner but had committed numerous violent crimes and had had a fair trial and a reasonable sentence.

Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. He had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilizing terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s MK terrorists.

South African President P.W. Botha had, on a number of occasions, offered Nelson Mandela freedom from prison, if he would only renounce terrorist violence. This Mandela refused to do.

New Maths

In Invictus Mandela’s 26 years in jail, custody and prison becomes 30 years in the cell in Robben Island, even though prisoners on Robben Island were allowed to walk freely around the Island during the day and were only locked up at night. No mention was made of the very comfortable warden’s house at Victor Verster (five star) prison where Mandela spent his last years of confinement.

Inspiring Words

Invictus regularly portrays Nelson Mandela as a most gracious, kind and forgiving man. Many most commendable words are put in his mouth including “the past is past. We need your services. We can only succeed with your help… reconciliation starts here…. forgiveness liberates the soul….forgiveness is a powerful weapon.”

Did Only One Group Have Anything to Forgive?

Under Clint Eastwood’s directorship, Invictus dogmatically asserts that Nelson Mandela and the black people needed to forgive the whites. Never does the film portray how much the whites had to forgive people like Nelson Mandela and his ANC terrorists who were responsible for the murder of thousands of South Africans. There is no mention in Invictus of the three decades of vicious terrorist warfare, including the burning down of thousands of schools, hacking to death of thousands of innocent people in homes and in the streets, pouring gasoline over a thousand innocent victims setting them alight, in the brutal necklace murders, the car bombs in public streets, limpet mines in shopping centres, petrol bombs and grenades through windows at night and assassinations.

Nor were economic sanctions referred to − which cost millions of jobs; and the sports boycott which had prevented the Springboks from competing internationally for decades.

A Negotiated Settlement

At one point in the film, Morgan Freeman’s Mandela character reminds his secretary: “The whites still control the army, the police and the economy.” That was correct, which gives the lie to the picture portrayed in Invictus of grudging, unwilling, narrow minded white racist bigots.

The fact is that white South Africans, who had the political, military and economic power and who had defeated Mandela’s ANC terrorists consistently, willingly handed over the reigns of power after a negotiated settlement.

The Communist Connection

Invictus never mentions Nelson Mandela’s open support for brutal communist regimes such as Fidel Castro’s Cuba, Robert Mugabe’s Zimbabwe, Red China, Gadhaffi’s Libya, Saddam Hussein, Yasar Arafat and other dictators. During the very time covered by Invictus Mandela received Fidel Castro, the longest reigning dictator in the world, and gave him the highest award that South Africa could give and then had both Houses of Parliament gather to hear an address from the Cuban tyrant.

The Ugly Reality

During the very time covered by the movie many hundreds of white farmers, and their wives and children, were being brutally murdered, actually tortured to death, often by UmKhonto we Sizwe guerillas, many of whom were now part of the South African National Defence Force.

Double Standards

Although Invictus gives all glory for the Springbok Rugby World Cup win to Nelson Mandela, it does not attach any blame to him for the rising crime and plummeting economy. During one short visual in the film Mandela looks at a newspaper headline which speaks of the rising crime and plummeting rand. This reality deserved a little bit more attention. During 46 years of National Party apartheid rule over 18,000 people had been killed by rioters, terrorists, by the police and the army, on all sides, including terrorists, civilian victims, military casualties and police. A total of 18,000 dead during 46 years of conflict. However, in peacetime, under Nelson Mandela, an average of 20,000 to 25,000 people were murdered every year.

Fueling the Crime Wave

Yet to celebrate his birthdays, Mandela would regularly open the prison doors and set many criminals, including armed robbers, murderers and rapists, free. Some of whom were murdering and raping within 24 hours of being released.

Economic Deterioration

In the 1970s, even while facing terrorism, riots and engaged in a border war with the Cubans in Angola, the South African Rand was stronger than the US Dollar. However, after years of US sanctions, the South African Rand had fallen to R2 to the Dollar. Under Nelson Mandela even with no war, no sanctions, no riots, no conscription, and with massive international aid and investment, the Rand plummeted to R8 to the Dollar, and even R10 to the Dollar, then R12 and even to R14 to the Dollar for a time. But according to Invictus, no blame can be attached to Nelson Mandela for the economic deterioration and the sky-rocketing crime rate under his presidency. However, he should be given all the credit for what the Springbok rugby team achieved on the field!

Legalising Abortion and Pornography

Viewers of Invictus also need to be aware that the kind and thoughtful gentleman portrayed in Invictus was the prime mover of the legalisation of abortion, pornography, gambling and homosexuality in South Africa and of the introduction of sex education in public schools. Since Nelson Mandela forced through the legalisation of abortion, not even allowing ANC MPs a conscience vote, and signed it into Law, 1 February 1997, over 900,000 South African babies have been killed through abortion, officially, legally and with tax-payers money.

Censoring Christianity

Another disturbing aspect of Invictus is the editing out of the Christian Faith of key members of the Springbok rugby team. There were many consistent reports of a core of the Springbok rugby team being Bible-believing Christians who regularly met for prayer before the matches.

Yet that is never depicted. The film does give a very anaemic presentation of the Springbok team kneeling in prayer after their victory, but it is such a lame and limp “Thanks Lord for letting us win the game” that it just doesn’t ring true.

As Francois Pienaar declared in his BBC Sport interview in 1995: When the final whistle went “I fell right to my knees. I’m a Christian and wanted to say a quick prayer for being in such a wonderful event, not because of the winning. Then all of a sudden, the whole team was around me, which was a special moment.”

Slanderous Distortion

Despite Francois Pienaar’s testimony, Invictus incredibly portrays him as fornicating before the winning match and swearing during it. And although the Springbok rugby team gave all glory to the Lord Jesus Christ for their triumph, Clint Eastwood’s production of Invictus transfers that glory to Nelson Mandela and a humanist poem by English poet William Ernest Henley, which he quotes: “I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul… I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.” It is the title of that poem, Invictus, after which the film is named.

Selective Focus

Francois Pienaar also pointed out in his 1995 interview with BBC Sport that the game favourites for the World Cup Rugby had been Australia, whom the Springboks beat in the opening game. This landmark victory is down played in Invictus.

Oversimplifying a Complex Country

It is unfortunate that Invictus reinforces stereotypes of narrow minded, white racists and whitewashes Nelson Mandela and the Marxists in the ANC. South Africa is far more complex and interesting than this film suggests. To understand South African history we need to understand the African context and the reality of the Cold War, which was the backdrop to the conflict in which Nelson Mandela played such a key role.

A Paid Political Advertisement?

It would be interesting to know from where the funding came for this film. At times it seemed like a paid political advertisement for Nelson Mandela and the ANC. If all that the film depicts of Nelson Mandela encouraging the team is really true, then it is commendable. But surely any sport team’s victory is to the credit of the Manager, the Coach and the team members’ dedication, training, fitness and skill?

Die gevaarlikste werk

Deur Radio Pretoria

Enkele dae nadat die ANC se dissiplinêre komitee besluit het sy jeugleier, Julius Malema, sal nie vervolg word omdat hy ‘n opdrag geïgnoreer het om nie meer “Skiet die Boere” te sing nie, is nog ‘n plaasmoord gepleeg.

Dié keer was dit mnr Johan Strydom, wat deur kennisse onthou word as ‘n boer wat baie goed vir sy plaaswerkers was. In ‘n vroeëre, dubbele Vrystaatse plaasmoord, is die bejaarde egpaar as filantrope beskryf.

Enkele jare gelede was daar beweer dat ‘n sakeman ‘n swart man agter sy voertuig aangesleep het. Dit het tot internasionaal opslae gemaak. Dat mnr Strydom ook, volgens die getuienis op die toneel, skynbaar agter sy bakkie aangesleep is, het kwalik die nuus gehaal, laat staan nog opslae maak.

In Suid-Afrika is daar in verskeie kringe, veral die regering, ‘n ergerlikheid weens die groot klem wat op plaasmoorde geplaas word. Daar is egter verskeie redes waarom dit soveel aandag geniet.

Die internasionale moordkoers word op 5 per 100 000 per jaar geraam, met dié van Wes-Europa op een. Suid-Afrika se moordkoers is egter net minder as 50 per 100 000 per jaar, met onder meer die Mediese Navorsingsraad wat meen dit is aansienlik hoër. Formeel word die moordkoers onder bruin mans in die Wes-Kaap weens bendebedrywighede op ongeveer 90 per 100 000 per jaar geraam, wat as die hoogste moordkoers vir ‘n identifiseerbare groep in die wêreld beskou word.

Interpol beraam egter die moordkoers onder Suid-Afrikaanse boere op meer as 300 per 100 000 per jaar.

Nog ‘n rede waarom plaasmoorde soveel aandag trek, is die ontsettende wreedheid waarmee dit in baie gevalle gepleeg word. Van ‘n bejaarde se voetsole afskil om te wys waar ‘n nie-bestaande kluis is, tot die keel afsny van ‘n Belgiese burger. Met byna elke plaasmoord lyk dit of die aanvallers vrye teuels aan hul verbeelding gee om nuwe wreedhede op te dis.

Die moordveldtog moet ook ‘n sielkundige uitwerking hê, wat moontlik dieper en wyer lê as die gewone trauma wat met ‘n moord gepaard gaan.

Daar is ‘n paar redes: Daar is ‘n onderlinge band tussen boere, hulle is grootliks op hulleself aangewese, die regering verseg om die moorde te veroordeel en beskuldig eerder die boere van allerlei dinge en die gevaar neem nooit die wyk nie. Sielkundiges beskryf dit as ‘n vorm van viktimonologie – ‘n trauma wat nie weggaan nie.

Selfs die huidige minister van landbou, Tina Joemat-Petterson, se aanvanklike belowende wegspring het nou in die gebruiklike retoriek verval wat die bewindstydperk van Liewe Lulu en Dirk du Toit gekenmerk het en wat beslis nie bydra tot die veiligheid van boere nie.

Dit beteken nie dat enige ander moord minder veroordelingswaardig is nie. Of die boef nou ‘n veiligheidskompleks indring en iemand in die privaatheid van sy slaapkamer vermoor, en of dit ‘n dronknes-messtekery is, dit bly erger as die blote statistiek. Maar dit is tog opvallend dat dit nie die blanke mynbase is wat in oorlogsliedjies gedreig word of enige ander sektor van die blanke samelewing nie, maar spesifiek die BOER – en ons kan dit maar spel met of sonder ‘n hoofletter.

‘Plaasmoorde méér ná 1994’

2010-05-20 02:20
Charles Smith

BOTHAVILLE. – Die moorde op boere in Suid-Afrika het skerp ná 1994 toegeneem, sê mnr. Ivan Basson, wat die Muur van Herinnering vir slagoffers van plaasaanvalle hier help oprig het.

“Dit het skerp ná 1994 gestyg. Dit is mal, dis mal,” het hy voor die muur op Nampopark hier gesê op die dag wat mense oor die land heen protesoptogte teen misdaad gehou het.

Die beskermhere van die “moordmuur” het al sowat 1 600 name van slagoffers aangebring, hoewel internasionale syfers aandui dat sowat 3200 boere en hul vroue al op hul plase vermoor is.

Basson sê elke naam wat op die lys gevoeg word, word eers deeglik nagegaan. ’n Boer wat in ’n ongeluk op die plaas dood is, word nie as ’n slagoffer van ’n plaasmoord geag nie.

Hulle kon nie by 1994 begin nie, want dit kon as ’n rassistiese stap vertolk word. Daarom begin die lys op 31 Mei 1960. Maar wat hulle wél seker van is, is dat die aantal moorde ná 1994 skerp toegeneem het.

“Die idee met die muur is ons wil wys iets is verkeerd. Die regering het gesê ons lieg oor die aantal moorde. Dis hoe die muur ontstaan het: Ons wys hier vir hulle die naam, die plek én datum waarop hy of sy vermoor is. Niemand kan dit betwis nie.”

“Ons dink daar moet iets agter die moorde skuil. Daar is net te veel plaasmoorde. (Julius) Malema wou in Zimbabwe gaan uitvis hoe om grond af te neem. Ons dink daar is een rede hoekom die moorde gebeur: Moor die boer van die grond, verjaag hom met vrees. Die wyse waarop die moorde gepleeg word, is skrikwekkend.”

Die verskonings vir die moorde is in die meeste gevalle iets nietigs soos “die boer het my ma gevloek”, of hy is te min betaal. Die meeste mense, wit en swart, in die land is goeie mense. Hulle moet saamstaan en hierdie moorde stop, reken hy.

Basson sê ál meer mense in die buiteland begin kennis neem van wat hier gebeur. Daar was reeds optogte teen die slagting van wit boere in Londen en Swede. Nog sulke protesoptogte word in Amerika, Australië en Kanada beplan.

“Die mense wat aan die optogte deelneem, is nie rassisties nie. Hulle betoog met die nuwe Suid-Afrikaanse vlag omdat hulle die land lief het.”

Basson sê geen finansiële instelling wou met die oprig van die muur help nie? omdat hulle bang was dit het ’n politieke kleur.

“Hulle het egter geen probleem om geld vir die ANC te gee nie. Dan is dit nie politiek nie. Inteendeel, hulle val oor hul voete om geld vir die ANC te gee. Die feit is dat boere wat gesterf het, hul kliënte was. Hulle het geld uit dié boere gemaak.”

Die muur is met skenkings van R20 begin. Dit wys wat gedoen kan word, sê hy.

Terreur-verdagte sê hy’s geslaan

’n Man van Phalaborwa wat van terrorisme beskuldig word, beweer die polisie het hom tydens ondervraging byna versmoor.

Hy het ingegee en onder dwang vals verklarings afgelê.

Mnr. George Kiratzidis (21) sal vandag hoor of hy op borgtog vrygelaat word.

Hy verskyn vandag weer saam met mnre. Marthinus Christo­pher Vorster (19) en Ruan Rufus Louw (22), wat ook beskuldig word van onder meer terrorisme en die onwettige besit van plofstof, vuurwapens en ammunisie.

Luidens die klagstaat wou die mans glo toeslaan op townships en het ook glo aanvalle by regeringskantore in Limpopo beplan.

Die landdroshof in die dorp het Vrydag gehoor hulle het opgetree weens mnr. Julius Malema, president van die ANC-jeugliga, se gewraakte uitlatings verlede maand.

Die mans word ook beskuldig van die skending van mnr. Norman Mashabane, voormalige ambassadeur in Indonesië, se graf in Phalaborwa.

Kiratzidis het Vrydag, tydens die begin van sy borgtogaansoek, gesê polisielede van die eenheid teen ernstige geweldmisdaad in Polokwane het hom geslaan.

Die polisie het op 19 April by sy huis in Phalaborwa op hom toegeslaan, maar hy het weggehardloop.

Hy het homself op 21 April aan die polisie oorgegee.

Kiratzidis is in die Modjadjiskloof (Duiwelskloof)-polisiekantoor aangehou.

Hy beweer hy is ná sy inhegtenisneming na ’n lapa buite Polokwane geneem waar sy voete aan ’n houtbankie geboei is.

’n Stuk rubber is oor sy gesig getrek en hy het telkemale byna sy bewussyn verloor.

Hy het toe ingegee en verklarings afgelê. Kiratzidis sê die verklarings is onder dwang gedoen en is leuens.

Kiratzidis het ook Griekse burgerskap.

Vorster, wat op 21 April in Phalaborwa in hegtenis geneem is, beweer ook die polisie het hom aangerand.

Hy is by die Gravelotte-polisiekantoor aangehou. Hy beweer hy is geklap en gewurg.

Luidens ’n sielkundige verslag, wat by die hof ingedien is, ly Vorster aan angs, depressie en posttraumatiese stres.

Mnr. André Stroh (21) is Vrydag op borgtog van R3 000 vrygelaat.

Die nasionale vervolgingsgesag (NVG) het alle aanklagte, behalwe dié van die onwettige besit van ammunisie, teen hom teruggetrek.

Die hof het gehoor Stroh is in die Polokwane-polisieselle gesodomiseer en gebruik nou antiretrovirale middels.

Stroh moet op 25 Junie saam met mnr. Francois Vos (36) weer in die hof verskyn.

Vos is vroeër op borgtog van R1 000 vrygelaat.

Die saak teen mnre. Albertus Kruger (22) en Hendrik Venter (21) is verlede week teruggetrek.


Afrikanervolk se Gaugamela

deur Quintin Diederichs
2010-05-18 13:00

Hoeveel mense het al van Guagamela gehoor?

Nee, dit is nie ‘n bestanddeel in ‘n kerriedis of ‘n onkruid wat by Oppikoppi gekweek word nie. Plutarg, die Griekse historikus, beskryf Guagamela wel as ‘n kameelvormige koppie maar dit is baie ver van Northam in hedendaagse Irak geleë. Die gebeurtenis wat by Guagamela plaasgevind het is egter veel belangriker as die ligging self.

In die jaar 331 v.C. het Alexander die Grote met sy 40,000 dapper Masedoniërs die magtige Persiese Ryk by Guagamela verslaan. Volgens Plutarg was Alexander se magte op die slagveld vyf-en-twintig keer minder as die Persiërs. Alexander het hierdie geskiedkundige oorwinning behaal as gevolg van die geniale strategie wat hy toegepas het. Daar word beweer dat meer as 300,000 Persiese soldate daardie dag gesneuwel het.

Darius, koning van Persië, het op sy oormag van manskappe staat gemaak terwyl Alexander op nugter strategie gefokus het. Strategie, ongeag van omstandighede, is altyd belangriker as getalle.

Maar wat het hierdie gebeurtenis in antikwiteit met die moderne Afrikaner uit te waai? Baie.

Ons staar vandag byna dieselfde oormag in die gesig wat Alexander 2,341 jaar gelede voor hom by Gaugamela gesien het. Al verskil is dat die oorgrote meerderheid van ons nog nie in terme van strategie dink nie, eerder in terme van getalle.

Mense kan skaars kwalik geneem word omrede ons leiers nog volgens die ou reëls probeer speel of selfs ly aan ‘n pestilensie wat bekend staan as “nasiebou” terwyl ‘n kwart van ons bevolking, waarmee daar kwansuis ‘n nasie gebou moet word, alreeds die hasepad gekies het en dat daar verder derduisende Afrikaners wreed vermoor word in die Nuwe Suid-Afrika.

Strategie is al wat ons uit die sop uit gaan red. So wat staan ons te doen?

Afrikaners moet eerstens begin rigting kry en ophou om onsself te vergaap aan die omstandighede om ons. Dit help ook nie om terug te hunker na ‘n ou stelsel wat nie gewerk het nie. Dit is alles water onder die brug. Elkeen moet nou besef dat al hoe ons weer orde in ons lewens gaan bewerkstellig is sodra ons as vry burgers onsself gaan regeer binne ons eie staat.

Indien daar ‘n Afrikaner is wat vandag nog glo dat die ANC meer bevoeg is om oor ons volk te regeer as wat ‘n demokraties verkose volkseie regering daartoe in staat sal wees dan moet daardie persoon liewers sy opinie vir homself hou en sy kop gaan laat lees.

Met hierdie besef moet ons onsself daaraan herinner dat ons ‘n beskaafde en Godvresende volk is. ‘n Beskaafde mens wil vrede hê en is intelligent genoeg om te weet dat dit in ons beste belang is om ‘n vreedsame skikking te bewerkstellig. Spaar geweld vir die dag wanneer jy jouself of jou gesin moet verdedig teen ‘n aggressor wat nie die vredepad saam met jou wil stap nie. Daardie dag is verseker nie nou nie.

Vir die afgelope 19 jaar is daar ‘n groep Afrikaners wat besig is om te bou aan ‘n nuwe toekoms. Hulle het besluit om vreedsaam af te stig en beheer oor hul eie sake te neem. Hierbenewens het hulle hul eie grondgebied bekom, infrastruktuur gebou, opnuut begin boer en besighede in die lewe geroep.

Hul strategie werk. Bekom grond in ‘n yl bevolkte gebied, maak staat op jou eie arbeid en skep jou eie realiteite. Die resultaat is Orania: ‘n gebied waar Afrikaners in orde vertoef, hul taal onbeskaamd praat, hul kultuur met oorgawe uitleef en weet hoe dit voel om deel te wees van ‘n gemeenskap wat nie onder die gewig van misdaad verbrokkel nie.

Dit is die toekoms vir die Afrikaner in ‘n post-koloniale Afrika. Nêrens anders in die geskiedenis van Afrika het die blanke sy eie realiteit geskep deur uitsluitlik gebruik te maak van sy eie arbeid nie.

Die Afrikaners in Orania is die enigste blanke inboorlinge van Afrika wat die boeie van die ou kolonialistiese denkwyse gebreek het en as ‘n gemeenskap hul identiteit kon behou. Dit is wel ‘n transformasieproses maar een wat verskil van die transformasie wat in die Nuwe Suid-Afrika plaasvind aangesien Orania ten doel het om die Afrikaner te bemagtig, nie die teenoorgestelde nie.

Orania is die Afrikanervolk se Guagamela, koppie en al. Dit is waar ons ‘n geniale strategie toepas om die Afrikaner te bemagtig om as oorwinnaars uit die stryd te tree. Al waar ons strategie verskil met dié van Alexander is dat ons ‘n oorwinning behaal sonder dat ‘n druppel bloed gegiet word. Aldus kan duisende Afrikaners getuig dat hulle deel is van ‘n gemeenskap wat as ‘t ware besig is om vanuit Orania geskiedenis te maak.

Die valse indruk en gepaardgaande euforie met betrekking tot die “reënboognasie” wat die liberaliste op hul blou plakkate probeer verkondig is presies dit – vals.

Word ‘n vriend van Orania en kom skep ‘n toekoms waarop jy kan trots wees. Geen leier of party gaan vir jou kan doen wat jy in staat is om vir jouself te doen nie en Orania bied vir jou die ruimte waarin jy as Christen Afrikaner kan floreer.

Soos met enige oorwinning is die uitdaging groot en die opofferings vanselfsprekend maar sodra mens genoeg gekla het sal jy besef dat niks in jou lewe vir die beter gaan verander voor jy nie bereid gaan wees om saam met ons Orania uit te brei nie.

Nes jy is ek ook nie van plan om vir die res van my lewe ‘n slagoffer van die massas te wees nie. Ek glo in strategie, nie getalle nie. Sien julle in Orania!


Carolina woman terrorised

2010-05-18 10:01
Buks Viljoen, Beeld

Nelspruit – A woman was wounded in the leg at the weekend on a farm outside Carolina, just over a month after her wooden house was set on fire on the same farm.

Cornelia de Wet, 32, was in one of the camps at about 12:30 on the farm Kwaggafontein when she heard a shot go off. She felt a burning pain in her leg and saw that her right calf was bleeding.

Her brother, Jan de Wet jnr, said they suspect she was wounded by a bullet which was shot from far away.

Cornelia was released from the provincial hospital in Carolina after being treated.

According to her brother, this is the fifth time since the fire on April 17 that criminals have targeted the farm.

She and her daughters, Cornelia, 11, and 2-year-old Joey, were sleeping in the wooden house on the night she was woken by the smell of smoke.

She couldn’t open the door because someone had secured the latch from the outside with a piece of wire. When she put her arm through a window to try to open the door from the outside, shots were fired at her.

She used a CB radio to call her parents, Jan snr and Nelie de Wet, who live in the farmstead about 50m from her house, but the attackers opened fire on them as well.

A gunfight lasting nearly two hours followed, before more help arrived at the farm. Jan jnr said since the fire there have been several break-ins at the store rooms on the farm, and the vehicles on the farm were also recently vandalised.

“Someone wants to force us off our family farm, but we don’t know who. Our farm is the only one in the whole area which isn’t the subject of a land claim.”

According to him, the police are refusing to investigate.

Police spokesperson Isaac Aphane confirmed on Monday that they are aware of the incident. “We did go to the farm, but we didn’t register a complaint since she doesn’t know who injured her.”
