Pregnant 'Boeremag leader' arrested in raid

2012-05-31 11:48

Johannesburg - A woman - reportedly a local Boeremag leader - was arrested on a Carolina farm for being in possession of unlicensed ammunition and explosives, Mpumalanga police said on Thursday.

Lieutenant Colonel Leonard Hlathi said she was arrested on Wednesday and briefly appeared in a Carolina court, but he could not give further details.

"On the issue that she is part of the Boeremag, I can't confirm that. I also can't disclose the locality where she is being kept."

Beeld newspaper reported that she was arrested during a police raid on her farm.

Police suspected Cornelia de Wet, who was pregnant, made her farm available for the promotion of racist indoctrination, according to a police affidavit seen by Beeld.

The police said in a statement they had been investigating accusations of terrorism and treason for some time.

During the raid police confiscated ammunition for shotguns, and R-1 and .22 rifles.

After her appearance in court she was transferred to Middelburg prison. She would appear in court again on Wednesday, Beeld reported.

      WAOH! Is this the same Cornelia de Wet that was in her house with her children when her windows and doors were tied with wires and the house almost torched down? The same Cornelia de Wet that was then 2 weeks later shot in the leg while she was working with her sheep?

      Typical whites..don't really understands english,but also want to comment boldly. Listen moron..he KNOWS where she is, but he is not allowed to say it.(Maybe due to safety reasons) some people just see what they want to see and hear what they want to hear!

  • gregory.jurgens - 2012-05-31 12:05

    The government feel threatened by a pregnant Afrikaans aunty with a bag full of bullets.

      Mpho - all countries have their share of radicals. Trust me, these are not the ones to worry about. Rather worry about the number of normal level headed citizens who have had enough ........

    The only sad part is the unborn baby. It is not proper to believe that a child of a racist will be racist.

      Have you ever heard anywhere that an elephant gave birth to a giraffe?work it out yourself.

      hvanderlinde - 2012-05-31 12:57

      And in this case a human will give birth to a human. You argue like a child Oompiet. Conviction is not genetic moron

    Whites need to defend themselves though, especially farmers. People are becoming desperate as elderly women and babies are beng slaughtered.

  • Carel de Lange - 2012-05-31 12:22

    And here we go again, everyone is on the race bandwagon because news 24 said so. RETARDS! It is clearly a witch hunt and she will be kept in jail for decades without trial just the same as the current lot already in custody. Government preaches racism and hate speech everyday with unfounded allegations against whites but the black racist ilk present here is all in favour!

      Matshidiso - 2012-05-31 12:41

      Carel de Lange do you mind quoting one government official who preached recism and hate speech becaose at any time that person does not belong in our government and needs to be reported.

      i2meleng - 2012-05-31 12:51

      Carel don't be an idiot now, enough with racialising everything. Jerrrrrrr

      William - 2012-05-31 12:56

      @Matshidiso: Jacob Zuma, Julius Malema, and pretty much everyone in the government. DO you know what Dubula 'ibhunu means?

  • HugoMabasa - 2012-05-31 12:23

    this is what Zuma meant when he said the country was safe,our intelligence agencies are top class and will sniff any treasonous activities.

      rambo919 - 2012-05-31 12:27

      Unless those amazing agencies framed her

      talitha.grobbelaar - 2012-05-31 13:40

      Malema started with hate speech in public and when Mandela dies, Mandela will cry for every person that is being killed alongside God's angels. He still has his dignaty and humanity even if he is black and that is why I as a white lady have the world of respect for him. And as for Zuma? He has done a lot of good in this beautyful country of ours but also made some mistakes because he is HUMAN!!!

  • Tax - 2012-05-31 12:24

    Why dont the SAPS raid townships for weapons? Can you imagine what they would find? Always going for the soft targets arent they?

      Martin - 2012-05-31 12:54

      sweep right through, dogs and metal detectors, finished. sandf acting as the search party while police stand and keep the order or try to anyway

      Bomb - 2012-05-31 14:06

      Police too fat to fit in between the shacks. Plus they don't have enough trucks to load all the stolen goods. Eskom will also have to accompany them to prevent anyone getting killed by illegal connections.

      sharon.truebodyvice - 2012-05-31 14:48

      It is the SAPS supplying the guns to the townships to disrupt DA run WC, they know wot is there , so they not gonna risk their lives they will rather send wot little white policemen in to search townships, but the order has not been given yet ...............

      michael.keke.9 - 2012-08-02 15:11

      Tax.payer don't stop paying your tax, it'l go torwards employmnt of new SAPS, just watch the space

  • mpumelelo.matross - 2012-05-31 12:25

    I fail to understand why people have to label each other and think that killing other people is justifiable. We've got a beautiful country with all the possibilities. WHY CAN'T WE JUST LIVE IN PEACE!!! Aren't people tired of the violence already???? If we count march to stop the e-tolls, surely we can do something beyond that. We have the POWER to stop all these corrupt and dishonest government officials. South Africa is for everyone who resides in it (notice: I didnt use any colour / race / creed). Come on now!!!

      Nigel - 2012-05-31 12:33

      Spot on. 100% correct. When people talk 'big' about violence, means they know nothing. Nobody ever wins.

      Darren Nel - 2012-05-31 12:51

      well said mpumelelo. sa needs more people like you. maybe one day the rest of sa will catch a wake can only hope.

      DuToitCoetzee - 2012-05-31 15:51

      ...because people listen to the nonsense other people telling them and get influence instead of thinking for themselves. This flaw you will find in all spices of the human race.

      michael.keke.9 - 2012-08-02 15:15

      Mpumi spot on, Mr Mandela had established foundation for Peace In Our Land, all is left is to build A New South Africa And A Rainbow Nation Ya

  • Jacques - 2012-05-31 12:26

    These people... Why should there be a Boeremag? I'm Afrikaans, and I have close family who are farmers, yet I have no need to be part of any Boeremag? It's like the SACP with their 'movement'. We are a (supposedly) fully functional democracy! There's no movement! No 'armed forces of the Boere'! Am I missing something?

      rambo919 - 2012-05-31 12:37

      No need for a specific organization, that's why they are so terrified of us. During the two freedom wars it was not professional soldiers that took on the British Empire... it was no-nothing normal farmers and we would have won too if the BE did not resort to atrocity.

      blipsie - 2012-05-31 21:03

      Jacques there is something very strange going on here. Google her name. I think someone high up wants her farm. This is not the first incident to hit her.

  • glen.e.huysamer - 2012-05-31 12:27

    This is really a non-article! What is the issue, the great big pregnant white danger to national security, Is this what Mdluli spent R200million rand to uncover. The ANC continues to cross the line of pathetic.

      @Cedric Pap-Junionr Kgatla. Like bombing restaurants and bars? Putting limpet mines on roads in rural farming areas specifically targeting civilians? SOUNDS FAMILIAR?

  • rambo919 - 2012-05-31 12:57

    OH FFS PEOPLE yes bloodriver was a victory but it was only part of a small war where whites and Zulu's worked together to overthrow Dingaan who was as nuts as they come. IT WAS NOT A RACE CONFLICT

      rambo919 - 2012-05-31 13:02

      And it was not us that won that battle but God that won it for us, we were just the sword HE swung.

      Jason - 2012-05-31 13:06

      are you kidding me? really? if god helps people massacre eachother id rather not go down that road.

      Louis - 2012-05-31 13:37

      Jason, you clearly don't understand what happened at Blood River. Go and read up about it - the result was extraordinary. God doesn't help people massacre each other, He protects those that truly believe in Him.

      Jason - 2012-05-31 13:54

      aaah so because the black people didnt believe in god he let them die? Thats your point, hmm you guys really dont think this religion thing through do you?

      rambo919 - 2012-05-31 14:57

      @Jason Stop being so reactionary (love when I get to use that word against a black racist). Read up about what happened and why, the blacks slaughtered were fanatics under the control of a certafiable nut. They were a danger to everyone in the area. And believe it or not not long after the battle the whites moved up and together with a Zulu prince and his soldiers fought other battles against the fleeing army. It was not God helping whites slaughter blacks, it was God driving out the evil influence. Also these same "racist's" afterwords setup all sorts of missionary stations, schools and clinics for the blacks and helped them recover.

      Jason - 2012-05-31 15:22

      @rambo919 look we can sit here arguing the truths about about god all day long. quick side note though, im not black :)

      rambo919 - 2012-05-31 15:31

      So you are a "Soutie" that hates all things Afrikaans? Hardly original.

      randomhero6661 - 2012-05-31 17:47

      @jason go back to Iraq and don't come back. "i trained with the RAF" what was it like a weekend camp? did mommy and daddy take you for an outing? GTFO!

  • Nigel - 2012-05-31 13:07

    God forbid that SA should ever see a civil war because it will knock us back 100 years. However, I believe that should such a day ever come, many of the big mouth racists on both sides are going to be very surprised as to who is fighting alongside who.

      Jason - 2012-05-31 15:05

      @rob i dont agree with racism or violence from either side. Do i support the ANC no ofcoarse not because i had the priveledge of leaving and coming to see the pile of ashes that has been created by JZ and his kin, i am just tired of racism being the ruling factor in our everyday lives.

      Rob - 2012-05-31 15:27

      @ Jason. Critisizing the actions & views of another race IS NOT racism. Black people in this country & around the world are abusing the word racist, when they themselves @ times, are even more racist then the white they are responding to. We whites do generalise, but then, blacks are never afraid to generalise against whites. Fact IS fact & why should we hold back. Those days are over ! So, no, I disagree with you.

      Jason - 2012-05-31 15:46

      @Rob I respect yours and @Tax's standpoints. i think that everyone myself included just become way too emotional as soon as the race card is drawn.

  • talitha.grobbelaar - 2012-05-31 13:23

    "I also can't disclose the locality where she is being kept." Sounds very much like the old Security Police.

  • Louis - 2012-05-31 13:46

    Its a shame that us proud Afrikaners are still branded under associations such as the AWB. The reality is that most of us did not like them and still don't, because they really embarrass us most of the time with their lack of tact. Having said that, looking at parliament and the circus there, the lack of respect that the government demands due to their constant association with corruption, the fact that nothing gets done about farm murders, and with crime being rampant, I can understand why certain people are inclined to take things into their own hands. If people do not feel threatened, they do not feel the need to protect themselves in such radical ways.

  • heydra - 2012-05-31 14:20

    Realistically this may or may not be bad reporting for propaganda purposes. There is no mention on the quantities of amunition found. Was it 12 shotgun shells, or 1200 boxes? Was it a few R1 rounds left over from the past or was it several ammo cases full? Was it .22 sniper rounds or farmer kids .22 rounds used for target shooting like they has at schools in the 80's. I can understand a farmer having a few shotgun, R1 and .22 rounds lying around. Unless it's true stockpiling what's the problem?

  • surita.coetzer - 2012-05-31 14:34

    O Yes we all forget only whites are racist. White people even babys are murder daily but it got nothing to do with racism. Oompiet may you be fed to the lions alive you and all your off springs!

  • Boeretroos - 2012-05-31 14:43

    It is obvious that the Regime of the anc are responsible for the hatred directed towards the Boers and the Afrikaners seeking and persueing where they can. However - the world already knows the real truth about south africa. Dangerous nicumpoops you are. Volkstaat.

Please give that baby to a non racist afrikaner family , like my neighbours

  • theo.prinse - 2012-05-31 21:01

    Since 'kolonel' Franz Jooste from Kommando Korps appeared on Dutch Christian television before an audience of 213.000 viewers in February in a documentary on Plaasmoorde he by the way said that the European Holocaust never happened because Germany didn't had the coals in the Ruhrgebiet to burn the Jewish corpses and thought Adolf Hitler was a nice person ... Some months later he was cited on Dutch television. Jooste destroyed in a few minutes all the efforts of Dutch politicians in their discussions on Plaasmoorde in Dutch Parliament. I have no sympathy for Boeremag, Kommando Korps, right wing national-socialists (nazi's) neither has anyone in Europe or Germany. National-socialist splinters among Afrikaner or ideologically with their race theories 1 inch away from ANC communism and their class theories. That is why nazi's and communists are working under one and the same hat. Both ideologies have fascist violence as their core instrument.

  • Jack - 2012-05-31 21:23

    By just reading the comments you realise that most whites are hypocrites. It is not right to encourage any attempts to topple a legitimate and people elected government. If you don't like it then elect another party to govern. During apartheid this like conducts by blacks were largely condemed but now encouraged. This is just hypocracy and sad state of our country.

  • eyesears.handsfeet - 2012-07-17 08:32 How ironic that the police are "arresting" a pregnant woman based on so-called "terrorism" Wow Police thank you for showing your true colours in showing that you are actually acting as a terrorist orginisation yourselves.
