Boeremag Member Jailed for Terrorism

Mariette le Roux, Pretoria A member of the right-wing Boeremag organisation, sent to jail for eight years for terrorism on Friday, thought his actions were justified by the prophesies of a renowned Boer seer. In a document outlining his plea agreement with the State, Dawid Andries Oosthuizen says his recruiters repeatedly showed him a video on the predictions of prophet “Siener” van Rensburg. The seer apparently warned of a plan by black South Africans to “create chaos” in Johannesburg. Those watching the video where told to be prepared to counter such an “attack”. The video also included material on the plight of white farmers as a result of land reform in Zimbabwe, and those attending were reminded of attacks on farmers in South Africa. Oosthuizen (28) contends Van Rensburg’s reference to “a bucket of blood falling over in the north” was used as a metaphor for the Zimbabwean situation. “This led the accused to believe that the actions of the Boeremag would be justified,” the plea agreement reads. The State alleges the organisation planned to overthrow the government, chase all blacks and Indians out of the country, or kill them, and declare a “Boer” republic. Full Story
