White Supremacist Eugene Terre'blanche murdered

SOUTH African white supremacist leader Eugene Terre'blanche has been brutally hacked to death on his farm.

The 69-year-old far-right politician was allegedly attacked by a man and a boy on Saturday night following a furious row over unpaid wages.

The pair - who worked on his farm in the north-west of the country - are suspected of battering the leader of the Afrikaaner Resistance Movement (AWB) with pipes and machetes.

Police captain Adele Myburgh said: "Mr Terre'blanche's body was found on the bed with facial and head injuries .... A 21-year-old man and 15-year-old boy were arrested and charged for his murder.

"The two told the police that the argument ensued because they were not paid for the work they did on the farm."

Terre'blanche became the champion of a tiny white minority who fought to preserve apartheid in the early 1990s.

However, he had recently retired into relative obscurity at his farm 10 miles outside Ventersdorp.

Myburgh said the men would appear in court on charges of murder soon.

The Democratic Alliance in the North West expressed its "outrage and concern" at Terre'blanche's murder blaming "racial tension in the rural farming community".

Howard Yawa, North West representative for Public Safety, condemned the "callous murder in the strongest terms possible" and urged locals to let justice take its course.

Despite his widely condemned racist views, his charismatic speeches saw Terre'blanche build the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging at one point into a poerful political force.

However, Terre'blanche was lampooned in Nick Broomfield's documentary 'The Leader, His Driver and the Driver's Wife' and later ridiculed by Louis Theroux in an episode of the BBC series 'Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends'.

Last night, a man who answered the phone at Terre'blanche's home claimed the 69-year-old had been asleep when he was attacked.

The man claimed: "Two people have been arrested. One was one of Eugene's own workers from the farm and the other was the guy's friend.

"They broke into the house when Eugene was asleep and chopped him up with a panga (machete) then beat him to death. We are waiting to find out more now.

"I don't know how long the guy had been working for Eugene. Apparently the pair of them were caught red-handed and admitted their guilt when they were arrested."

Several members of Terre'blanche's family gathered at his farm.

The friend added: "This has come as a terrible shock to the family. Most of them are at the farm tonight including Eugene's daughter. The whole community is in shock."


Say the word White Supremacist and everybody hisses and boos but there is good reason why many feel hatred towards black people in SA. The crucial thing about this story is that this man was NOT murdered because of his white supremacist views but because of UNPAID WAGES.

Is it right that people should cheer about the death of this man purely because he held extreme far right views? I'm not entirely sure it is. The irony is many black people also think like was in fact better under apartheid.

They are nothing more than vile savages. I don't care what his political views are, it was another white farmer brutally murdered by wild savages.
