Come to your senses, urges Afriforum

2010-04-04 10:28
Johannesburg - Afrikaner civil rights group Afriforum on Saturday urged South Africans to remain calm in the aftermath of Eugene Terre'Blanche's murder in Ventersdorp.

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.

"These events are a call to all South Africans to come to their senses and to be aware of the extremely polarised and violent circumstances presently prevalent in the country," said deputy CEO Alana Bailey.

"All communities, white as well as black, should refrain from reckless statements and from romanticising violence."

Bailey warned that the present circumstances were "very tend and potentially may be destructive".
