Boer political prisoners

This section is dedicated to Boer political prisoners.
Their sacrifices, as well as their names should not be forgotten.
First thing we are trying to make a list with names, maybe photos (even older), prison number and prison name. Isn’t an easy task, and is necessary the help of everyone, so we hope to improve with time. We apologize for any errors, omissions and inaccuracies.
We want to list the men still in prison, that have acted convinced to serve the nation, or who are imprisoned with unjustly accused, just because they are patriots.
The struggle of the Boer volk for its freedom can’t be condemned.
The ANC’s regime can not deny freedom to Boer volk - as well as to other nations of southern Africa. We claim the release of all Boer freedom fighters, as we claim the right to freedom for the Boer volk.

People with information can contact the administrator of, to add or remove names, to insert prison numbers or photographs, to update the positions of individual men and possibly to remove those who were released from prison:
