Map of a (non Boer) Afrikaner “volkstaat” in the north-west of the Cape Province

(non Boer) Afrikaner “volkstaat” in the north-west of the Cape Province


The map above was made by Vryheidsfront (Freedom Front), Afrikaner political party that participated to the imperial election of the 1994. The project was to make a (non Boer!) Afrikaner settlement in an area of the north-west of the Cape Province, between the Vaal River and the Atlantic Ocean. A predominantly agricultural area, poorly populated and developed. An area of little interest, where the Afrikaners would have had to retreated themselves to form one homogeneous state, able to reclaim independence. This area included the towns of Vredendal, Calvinia, Prieska end Orania.
Orania is an exclusively Afrikaner community, founded in 1991 by Professor Carel Boshoff, and passed it off as the first embryo of this kind of “volkstaat”.
