Police minister to meet AWB

2010-04-19 08:35
Johannesburg - Police Minister Nathi Mthethwa will meet an Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) delegation on Monday morning, an official said.

"The meeting was requested by the AWB," said Mthethwa's spokesperson Zweli Mnisi.

He said the rightwing organisation - whose leader, Eugene Terre'Blanche was hacked to death on his farm two weeks ago - wanted to discuss "some killings".

"We will be sharing our rural safety programme with them," said Mnisi.

The minister, the secretary of police, Jenny Irish-Qhobosheane, and Mnisi would sit in on the meeting with the AWB.

AWB general secretary Andre Visagie was expected to attend the meeting in Pretoria alongside other AWB members.

Ventersdorp farm attack


A 50-year-old man from a farm outside Ventersdorp, where Terre'Blanche was murdered, was attacked on Sunday.

He was rushed to hospital with multiple stab wounds to the leg after being attacked when he went outside to check why his dogs were barking, paramedics said.

Terre'Blanche was hacked to death on his farm two weeks ago.

A 15-year-old youth and Chris Mahlangu, 28, were arrested for the murder, which locals feared would spark racial violence in the conservative North West town.
