Zuma calls for calm after neonazi killing

Sunday 04 April 2010

by Our Foreign Desk

South Africa’s president has appealed for calm after neonazi leader Eugene Terreblanche was bludgeoned to death by two farm workers in an apparent dispute over wages.

Mr Terreblanche was leader of the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging movement, better known as the AWB, that wanted to create three all-white republics within South Africa in which black people would only be allowed as guest workers.

Police spokeswoman Adele Myburgh said that Mr Terreblanche was attacked by a 21-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy who were employed by him on his farm outside Ventersdorp.

Ms Myburgh said that the alleged attackers had been arrested and charged with murder.

She said the two, whom she did not identify by name, told the police that there had been a dispute because they were not paid for work they had done on the farm.

President Jacob Zuma appealed for calm following “this terrible deed.”

In a statement, he asked South Africans “not to allow agents provocateurs to take advantage of this situation by inciting or fuelling racial hatred.”

Mr Terreblanche had threatened war on South Africa’s racist apartheid regime in the 1980s when it began to make what he considered dangerous concessions to black citizens that, he claimed, endangered the survival of South Africa’s white race.

In 1983 he was sentenced to a two-year suspended jail sentence for illegal arms possession.

The same year, two AWB members were jailed for 15 years for conspiring to overthrow the government and assassinate black leaders.

Mr Terreblanche was finally jailed in 1997, sentenced to six years for the attempted murder of a black security guard and assaulting a black gas station attendant.

He became a born-again Christian in prison and declared on his release in 2004 that his experience had convinced him that “the real hour to revive the resistance had arrived.”

    Russia: Suspected neonazis have gunned down a Moscow City Court judge who had faced death threats after jailing members of an ultra-nationalist skinhead gang.

    Eduard Chuvashov, who was shot in the stairwell of his block of flats, sentenced 12 members of the White Wolves in February over the brutal murders of six migrant workers from former Soviet central Asian states.

    Neonazi groups subsequently published his picture and extracts of audio tapes from court cases on websites.
