Mandela and Carel Boshoff

Professor Carel Boshoff, the founder of Orania (the small Afrikaner town in the northern Cape – with reference to Afrikaans-speaking withes), died Wednesday morning, 16 March 2011, at his home. He suffered from cancer.

He was a man of the Afrikaner Broederbond (in English: Afrikaner Brotherhood), of the Suid-Afrikaanse Buro vir Rasse Aangeleenthede (SABRA, in English: South African Bureau of Racial Affairs), of the Afrikaner Vryheidstigting (AVSTIG, in English: Afrikaner Freedom Foundation), of the Konvensie vir ‘n Suid-Afrika Demokratiese (KODESA, in English: Convention for a Democratic South Africa), of the Vryheidsfront (VF, Freedom Front, FF) and of the Orania Beweging. All organizations, at different times, by false “Afrikaner” alternatives (often passed off as “Boer”), favoured the establishment and/or the consolidation of a capitalist-communist empire over the whole southern Africa, and obscuring Boer nationalism, working so the Afrikaans-speaking whites - without realizing it, and gradually – take the road of assimilation (the voluntary genocide).

Carel Boshoff, Eugene Terre'Blanche, Andries Treurnicht

For years, the figure of Carel Boshoff, especially when he was leader of the Afrikaner Volkswag (AVW, in English: Sentinel of the Afrikaner people) – an Afrikaner (with reference to the Afrikaans-speaking whites) cultural organization - became associated with the nationalists. Especially in the second half of the 1980s, when he, on several occasions, accompanied Eugene Terre’Blanche, Andries Treurnicht and Jaap Marais. But time has told us the truth about him.

For example, when he confirmed that the definition of “Afrikaner” (on which he based his theoretical struggle for independence) also includes blacks and browns. Confirmation that “Afrikaners” (correctly: all Afrikaans-speakers) are not a nation (on the contrary of Boer).

After having given hospitality in Orania to Nelson Mandela, to Jacob Zuma and to Julius Malema, he decided not to attend the funeral of Eugene Terre’Blanche, clearly saying: “[...] I’m not enamoured of him. He chose a path of confrontation, of conflict. We wanted another way.” And again: “We’re citizens of the country. We want to develop with the support of the government.”
A precise choice of field: on the side of the Empire, against the Boer nation.
