Johannesburg - Eugene Terre'Blanche, AWB leader, died in the same manner in which he killed black defenceless farm workers in Venterdorp, the Azanian People's Organisation said on Sunday.

"Azapo never rejoiced on the murder of any person, black or white, rich or poor. But the murder of Eugene Terre'Blanche left us with a combination of sadness, awe, confusion and a tinge of suppressed excitement," spokesperson Funani ka Ntontela said.

"We are sad that Mr Terre'Blache died in the manner in which he died, murdered in cold blood. Sadly, this is how he killed black defenceless farm workers in Venterdorp"

The party claimed that Terre'Blanche got away with murder because he was a law unto himself.

"Here is a man whose entire life was dedicated to seeing black people remaining endlessly dwarfed in the land of their birth; a man who never pretended to be anything but a racist and a murderer," said ka Ntontela.

He suggested that government erect a statue in memory of Terre'Blache so that "his ugly face never fades".

The 69-year-old AWB leader was beaten and hacked to death on his farm at Ventersdorp on Saturday evening - allegedly by two workers over a wage dispute. Both have been arrested and charged with murder.
