The Suidlanders, a far right-wing organisation which believes blacks are going to try to wipe out whites, has been deeply infiltrated by the SAPS’s Crime Intelligence Unit. Its leader, Gustav Müller, is surrounded by police agents and he has been made “a police project”. So says a former confidant of Müller’s who admitted to City Press this week that he is a police agent instructed by his handler, a Crime Intelligence colonel, to infiltrate Suidlanders. He says the police are spending millions on investigating the inner workings of the group. City Press can also disclose that Müller is a bankrupt businessman owing hundreds of thousands of rands and with no fewer than three judgments for debt against him. City Press has numerous intelligence reports on the Suidlanders which police agent Danie Odendaal gave his handlers. The reports detail efforts by some Suidlanders to procure and stockpile weapons. Odendaal says he has worked for Crime Intelligence for the past 15 years, investigating – among other things – the smuggling of weapons. He currently lives in Ireland. Despite Odendaal being a police agent, he suggested that the Suidlanders start a civil war and commit acts of terror against blacks. The Suidlanders and Müller came to the fore recently when Müller unveiled an emergency plan for whites to withdraw to farms for safety after the death of former president Nelson Mandela. Odendaal told City Press: » He was instructed in 2002 by his handler, a senior officer whose name is known to City Press, to befriend Müller and infiltrate, build up and recruit more agents for Suidland-Aksie, Suidlanders’ forerunner. He went to see Müller on his Free State farm near Villiers and befriended him. » His instructions came shortly after the arrest of Boeremag members who allegedly plotted to topple the government. Police were worried about more Boeremag sympathisers stockpiling weapons and planning terror attacks and wanted to use Suidland-Aksie to gather intelligence on right-wingers. » He established more than 200 police informants in Suidlanders. “The police spent several millions. I got a salary and a bonus. All the other agents also had to be paid.” » He and other Suidlanders at one stage hid weapons on a farm near Greylingstad in Mpumalanga. » He tried to convince Müller to assassinate President Jacob Zuma during one of Zuma’s court appearances, to precipitate civil war. » Crime Intelligence channelled money to Müller via Odendaal to keep him going so that they could monitor him. In an interview this week Müller said the police had an “obsession” with the Suidlanders and “it may be” that there were 200 or more agents in the organisation. Müller said he had always suspected Odendaal of being a police agent. “It is usually the one closest to you that will bite you the hardest,” he said. “I know within a day or two whether someone who has spoken to me is registered or not, because we are a big organisation and we have connections. National Intelligence, Crime Intelligence ... there is nowhere I don’t have people.” Müller said Odendaal played no leadership role and had no insight into the group’s “direction”. A former friend of Odendaal and Müller, Gauteng horse trainer Barend Botes said, however, that “Danie told (Müller) what to do. Everything that came out of Gustav’s mouth was planted by Danie.” Müller rejected allegations that the Suidlanders wanted to collect weapons and said he rejected any form of violence or insurrection. Müller said Odendaal did indeed suggest that they assassinate Zuma, but “I didn’t fall for such things. It was never serious.” City Press has military strategy documents that Odendaal sent to Müller in which he pleads for civil war and warns that “the k***ir has a bloodthirstiness in him that you will only stop by making sure that if you have started you won’t stop”. Müller said about Odendaal: “(An informant) writes reports in such a way that the handler will pay him... They kick up dust to ensure money and employment.” You can follow us on Twitter for regular news updates, live scoring, weather reports and more.
