Eugene TerreBlanche murdered

The leader of Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) Eugene Terre'Blanche was murdered at his farm 10km outside Ventersdorp on Saturday, North West police said. Captain Adele Myburgh said Terreblanche (69) was attacked by a man and minor who worked for him after they allegedly had an argument over unpaid wages around 6pm. "Mr Terreblanche's body was found on the bed with facial and head injuries. There was a panga on him and knobkerrie next to the bed. "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," she said. Myburgh said Terreblanche was alone with the two workers at the time of the attack. She said the two would appear on charges of murder in court soon. The Democratic Alliance in the North West expressed its "outrage and concern" at Terreblanche's murder. "This happened in a province where racial tension in the rural farming community is increasingly being fuelled by irresponsible racist utterances by the leader of the ANCYL Leader Julius Malema and the North West Cosatu secretary Solly Pheto," said DA MP Juanita Terblanche. She said the DA did not share Terreblanche's political conviction but an attack of this nature could be regarded as an attack on the diverse components of the South African democracy. Tereblanche sent her condolences to the family and called to the people to remain calm. North West MEC for Public Safety Howard Yawa reacted with shock at the news of Terreblanche's death and appealed for calm in the province. Yawa condemned the "callous murder in the strongest terms possible" and also called to the people to allow the law to take its course. Sapa

    What is going on here? it should be each one to his own, SA has not seen anything yet, this is going to be ugly we all know it. No one talks about racisim, or the apartheid, now all these issues are arising and people are getting ready to react to this, This is bad, bad for SA we are going to turn out like Zimbabwe...

    There is no prove as of today that he sexually abused the boys.

    i feel sad for all these boers, for thirty odd years our country was ruled by them and many black people died in their hands, just because one of the murderous also died we must feel sorry and talk about civil war, that is just plain sad. People like Chris Hani died, solomon mahlangu just to name but a few and we stood our ground and we did not blame anyone, just because Terreblanche was a sexual abuser must we suffer today, those boys were tired of being raped.

    Lets call out for His mercy. "I will do to you as you have done, etc When you broke the covenant which was made between you and me," as in Ezekiel 16 v 8 And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people- and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. Isaiah 2verse 2-4 (KJV)

    It is ok for the blacks to steal, rape and murder inoccent white people and get away with it. Where is justice? Now the murder of Terblanche!! The goverment will have all sorts of excuses not to prossecute te poor blacks. Who gives them the right to murder farmers. Just like Madiba, Terblanche was a icon to the Afrikaners!! Malhema must watch his big mouth!!!

    Ai, this is the worst timing ever. With slogans like "Kill the boer, kill the farmer", they seem to have done nothing wrong. Madiba wouldnt have tolerated this. Zuma's little lapdog cant set a foot wrong, shame on you Malema, last night on television he stated, "I will not stop singing it, people who want to assinate me, im ready for you?" He is teasing the Afrikaner community. Grow up Malema.....

    Apartheid long gone. Wake up country!!We must forgive the blacks for killing inoccent whites? There is no thing as forgiveness in there culture. Things are so bad and going down the gutter with the new goverment. I cant even find a job because I am the wrong colour!! Terblanches death to worst thing ever!! By killing him wont change things, just made it worse!!Things are going to get out of hand now. Stand together Afrikaners!

    Nobody deserves to die like this. No matter what his beliefs are. But it is not for the human to understand anything of this horrible world and time we live in...
