Andre Visagie attends Terre'Blanche trial

2012-02-01 11:08

Ventersdorp - Leader of the Gelofte Volk (People of the Covenant) rightwing movement, Andre Visagie, arrived at the High Court sitting in Ventersdorp on Wednesday morning to attend the trial of Eugene Terre'Blanche's alleged killers.

Visagie covered his face as he arrived just before court proceedings were due to start, with a guard dressed in camouflage uniform by his side.

Visagie is the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging's (AWB) former general secretary.

In 2010 he resigned to start a new organisation, Gelofte Volk Republikeine, saying he wished to fulfil a promise he made to slain party leader Eugene Terre'Blanche.

Visagie appeared in the Kimberly Magstrate's Court last year after being arrested on charges of unlawful possession of firearms and ammunition.

A few supporters for the two accused, Chris Mahlangu and a minor who may not be named, were gathered outside court.

The two are accused of beating and hacking Terre'Blanche to death in his North West farmhouse in April 2010. Both have pleaded not guilty to murder, housebreaking, and robbery with aggravating circumstances.

Mahlangu claims he acted in self defence. The teenager has denied involvement in the crime.

    Few supporters of Mahlangu, they are supporting him in what exactly. In killing his adversary like he was killing an animal. It is really very sad to be a retard. May this Mahlangu rot in whatever.

    I don't appreciate the updates on the movements of this terror suspect, Andre Visagie.

      Hugh - 2012-02-02 17:02

      He is as much a terror suspect as Mandala was innocent of crime.

    Did he wake up and decide he had nothing better to do today.

    He (Visagie) will be remembered for the scuffle in a TV studio and the presenters classic: "Don't touch me on my Studio".

    Seems that a lot of commentators feel threatened by the man. He's done nothing but turn up for the trial. How is it that he says less than Malema and still has that much of a presence to strike fear into the ignorant? Why fear the unknown? If he's done nothing to harm anyone or uttered a single sentence of hate speech what is the fuss? Worry about the ones that instigate violence on a minority race. Get your priorities in order, you that loathe your own race.

    This is my first comment ever on the site. Today I'm angry enough to comment. Every time I read comments it's always blacks vs. whites. I don't even like to put a label on skin colour, but for the purpose of the day to day comments I’ll says (blacks and whites). SHAME ON YOU SOUTH AFRICA, green, white, blue, black SHAME ON YOU. Crime is crime irrespective of colour. RACISM is kept alive, by all you 'intelligent' commentators. Swear at me or make any excuses, but SHAME ON YOU.

      Well said

      News24 you can delete my comments but the truth shall sets you free. This black or white thing will never end till jesus comes. You can go to hell and come back you will still find it. The solution is to accept it, move on and try not to invade or step on each others toe. There will always be hate among people be black on black, white on white or black or white. I have a few white friends I like and one of them is Afrikaner on the other hand I have a few blacks I hate and one of them is Malema. So accept and move on.

    south africa is still divided according to race before class and creed and we just have to deal with that, to all black liberals that seek acceptance and pretend they are united with whites, something will remind that you are black & a white person will always play god to you.
