AWB to protect Afrikaner farmers

2010-06-06 21:08
Johannesburg - The Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) was in the process of forming a security company to protect Afrikaner farmers, the movement's new leader Steyn van Ronge has said.

The AWB was registering the company within the confines of the law, "for the protection of the lives of the Boere-Afrikaner and its properties", Van Ronge said in a speech prepared for delivery at the Paardekraal Monument near Krugersdorp on Saturday.

It was hoped the company would prevent illegal farm occupations and protect lives and property.

Van Ronge said the killing of former AWB leader Eugene Terre'Blanche on Easter Sunday and the murder of about 3 300 farmers since 1994, indicated what a violent society South Africa had become.
