The Boeremag: The Phantom Threat to South Africa


In South Africa, the  Boeremag, is a phantom threat that conjures up images of a terror group ready to kill black people on a massive scale. However, the reality is quite different.


The Boeremag is a paper tiger being used by people as a local bogeyman type threat.  The so called Afrikaners could not stand together at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The Police generals could not abandon their juniors fast enough whilst trying to claim that they knew nothing.

The most expensive trial in the history of the RSA was the Boeremag trial. Several imbeciles were found guilty of trying to overthrow the government of the day as well as killing black people due to indiscriminate bombing. However, in this trial, evidence came to light that this group was trained by the local police and that the explosives used was supplied by the same police. The Afrikaans speaking judge did not see this discrepancy; an entire police operation which killed black people and assisted by white policemen.

In any other country, this issue would have been picked up on immediately. Not in South Africa.

If you want to discredit anybody, you accuse them of being part of the boeremag. Due to the inherent corruption in the system, the black senior officials are forced to go with the Boeremag issue; if not they will be ousted because of their past profane history. With scant regard to the law, the State apparatus swings into action, abuses abound from the corrupt sweeper to the judges so involved.

No bleating from people such as George Bizos, the influential human rights activist. Its only human rights when it seems one decides which case merits such.

The National Intelligence Service is actually at the epicenter of these illegal actions. The following names crop up continuously. One Herman Krause is the principal planner and scenario agent in this regard. Get on his wrong side, or that of his friends, and you are tainted as Boeremag. He is assisted by Gerhard Bester, who does the so called investigations. Interesting enough, all his sources turn out to be ex-Special Forces; not operators, but logistical staff. It is probably the same ones who have been part of the battles in the history of the Recces.

An unanswered question of how many people have been destroyed by these individuals? What happens naturally? They set out with a bunch of rough friends to steal from these people so incriminated by them, their livelihood, their businesses, their farms, and their dignity.


This phenomenon comes from pre 1994, either you were then a dangerous communist or you are now a boeremag. However, operations are lodged, budgets are approved, and scaly so called consultants are appointed at mega salaries, which of course are being shared between consultants and handlers. The body politic thinks that they are on top of the situation in the country. These people are so incompetent that they cannot even advise the government of the service delivery protests. Meanwhile, the anger and pressure is cooking, the melting pot is frightfully close to blowing up.

They control the press. It was alleged that when George Mazarikis, Director of Carte Blanche, tried to smuggle money out of the country, he was caught. Instead of being charged, he is being controlled by the Intelligence Services to ensure that only what they want  the world to know gets aired on television. Alternatively, programs are rewritten that cause the whole story to go missing. That’s right, it’s that George who’s driving around with an expensive Italian sports car.

He’s not the only journalist; Erica Gibson and Jacques Pauw at News 24 was also implicated as being on the payroll of those Intelligence deviants.

What’s the damage being done to the country? Until such time as these rogue elements are exposed there will never be a democracy and the Boeremag, the phantom threat to South Africa, is just that an illusion.

    I’ve been writing for years that the Boeremag trial was a trumped up artificially-created SA government construct because of definite information I had on this subject. The human rights abuses which were perpetrated against the Boeremag members in prison are indescribable. They were so horrific that medical documents and statements were smuggled from the prison and spirited away in a detailed report I submitted together with Boeremag lawyer Paul Kruger to Amnesty International in Amsterdam. How naive we all were to think that Amnesty would care! Mr Paul Kruger travelled all the way from Pretoria to Amsterdam to hand in this report personally and to also at the same time, lodge a formal complaint at the International criminal court in The Hague. It’s very refreshing to see that I wasn’t the only (South African-Dutch) journalist who believed that the Boeremag treason trial was one big farce, a political trial set up by cruel men who just wanted to fatten their own bank account at the expense of their fellow ‘Afrikaners’ and are still doing so to this day, as Laura Oneale reported accurately in the article above. What did Amnesty International do with that report? Neither Paul Kruger nor I ever heard from them again. Not a word.

    Thanks for an excellent report. Another thing about the Boeremag trial was that the state had listening devices installed in the rooms used by the lawyers of the accused to consult with their clients. The prosecution team was therefore always one step ahead. When this came to light at the end of the trial, the judge refused to amend the court records so that it could serve as an automatic right to an appeal.

      And police officer Loots testified at the trial that the coup plan was a forgery drawn up by the police, to no avail…but perhaps this is the reason why at the time of Mike du Toit’s home search, the police already knew in advance where his computer stood? Now I understand!

      • Johanna VanDokkum   January 15, 2014 at 6:51 am

        Loots was the actual handler of the one and only State witness against the Boeremag. A slimy worm with a criminal record. It’s amazing how often that ‘witness’ was caught out in lies and confusing answers during cross-examinations — yet the judge must have been fast asleep. No other way I can explain that the ‘state witness’ was seen as ‘credible’. The Boeremag men indeed were very strangely unaware that they were being set up. They are guilty of naivity and stupidity for there seemed to have been no suspicion agaisnt that dodgy character and the all-important fat that he never did explain how he exactly he earned his living. .
