I am deeply troubled by the failure or dogged refusal on the part of a virulently rabid minority that lives amongst us with values that defy the spirit, the ethos and values underpinning our Constitution.

Specifically, it has come to light that there allegedly is a farming community based in Kleinfontein outside Pretoria with its "Afrikaners with a Voortrekker heritage" only policy. This is a story published online and should be checked out.

amongst others.

So it is of grave concern that a farming settlement community in Kleinfontein, just outside Pretoria has barred people of colour to become part of their community even, one must assume, those willing to subscribe to their conservative lifestyle but barring race, religion and culture of those who want to settle.
