Feb 17 2011 – Krugersdorp – Mr Paul Kruger, convenor of the first Boer People’s Leadership Council (‘Volksraad’) in 113 years -- had his nose broken by an agent-provocateur who was identified as one Willem Boshof. The fracas occurred at a Thursday-evening meeting at the Paardekraal monument. This incident is very reminiscent of the vicious fear-and-intimidation tactics always used by the secret ruling-Afrikaner Broederbond cabal at any political meetings which were not ‘approved’ of by the ruling National Party before its hegemony ended in 1994.
Young white man in faux-cop uniform with an R4-assault carbine:
Meanwhile two agitators, Boshoff and another man named as Piet Rudolph, were surrounded by members of the AWB who were acting as body-guards, escorted outside and told to wait in their cars for the arrival of the summonsed police. Then something very strange happens: a young white man arrives, dressed in an old police uniform and carrying a powerful R4 government-issue assault carbine: he notes down all the car-registration numbers of the AWB members, who are waiting for the police to show up - reading the numbers to someone via his cellphone. However, recognised as Willem Boshoff Junior who works at a computer shop in Krugersdorp, the alleged assaulter of Paul Kruger’s son, the uniformed man chases off in his car after being challenged. During a high speed pursuit by a police car, young Boshoff is arrested, followed to the Krugersdorp police station by the AWB-members who recognised him so that they can lodge a statement about his behaviour. To their astonishment however, within half-an-hour Boshoff Junior is released – despite the fact that he had allegedly impersonated a police-officer and was also seen by dozens of people carrying a very dangerous military assault-carbine on a public street.
“We will not ignore such criminal behaviour just because you are whites…’
After the meeting, Kruger issued a stern warning to the small group of agitators who had caused the ruckus, writing on the VVK’s face book site: ”we will not continue to ignore such criminal behaviour just because you are whites. These were the choices you’ve made: now you will have to live with the consequences.’
He said in his statement: ‘We, the Boer people had the opportunity for the first time in 113 years to be introduced to the personal viewpoints of people who were elected to a Volksraad (Boer People’s Leadership Council) outside any party-politics. I listened to all these men at our meeting, and sat there wondering why people were continuously claiming that ‘Boers had no leaders’ amongst them. On the contrary, we have a great many people with leadership potential as was clearly shown at this meeting. These people are motivated by the noblest of ideals and there are many such potential leaders who will help place us back on our road to true freedom.’
Kruger pointed out that the Boers currently are on a rapid relearning curve; that they have to ‘relearn the democracy practices which were lost to them, and thus nearly forgotten, ‘ever since the Boers had fallen under British colonial oppression in 1902’.
A small group of agitators with sinister agendas:
He said that the majority of people at the meeting ‘were listening courteously and attentively to all the speakers to hear all the various viewpoints, which is the democratic way. “Yet there also was a small group of people which, through their willfully disruptive behaviour, obviously were attending with their own sinister agendas.
“The majority of us, who tried so hard to maintain our atmosphere of unity, where candidates shared and praised one another’s viewpoints, and acknowledged one another’s skills and contributions, there were a few people who sang the old familiar disruptive song: namely the phrases which go something like this: “We will never stand together, we will not leave you alone to just carry on, we will continue to taunt you, humiliate you, slander you and demonise you.’
Kruger said this small group launched their physical attack on him while he was in the middle of answering someone’ else’s question. “A man whom I’d never met and do not know at all, suddenly walked up to me and, without any warning, broke my nose with his fist’.
And then, in the confusion which followed, he wrote, “one of this man’s apparent comrades, Piet Rudolph, waved a firearm in front of the face of a young Boer who also was present at the meeting”.
We will not deviate from our road to freedom
Kruger warned: “I have news for this little gang: ‘don’t for one minute believe that you will stop me or the Boer-volk from continuing on our road to freedom. We have taken this road ever since 1836 and we will not deviate from it. Not for one moment.”
He added: “If you insist on acting like our arch-enemies, if you continue to try and destroy our work, if you continue to carry out your cowardly sneak-attacks against us, if you wave firearms in our faces, know that we will not continuously disregard such criminal misbehaviour only because you have white skins. You are the ones who have chosen this – so you will have to live with the consequences’.

Hoekom het hy onlangs ook uit Madagaskar gevlug en stil, stil terug gekom na SA? Willem Boshoff is nou die man wat vir Paul aangerand het. Verduidelik sommer ook hoekom Willem Boshoff se seun, Willem Boshoff jnr, wat by 'n rekenaarwinkel werk in Krugersdorp, na Willem snr vir Paul aangerand het, met 'n polisie uniform en 'n R4 wapen by Paardekraal op gedaag het? Willem jnr is duidelik nie 'n polisie beampte nie, so waar kry hy die uniform en die R4 wapen? Hoekom het hy probeer weghardloop toe die polisie daar opdaag? Verduidelik sommer ook hoekom die polisie vir Willem jnr wat homself voordoen as 'n polisie beampte en met 'n aanval geweer in die strate loop, na hulle hom gevang het, binne 'n halfuur vry laat?

"ek kan bevestig wat Ben se, en so + - 10 ander mense wat saam my tot die einde buite die hek gebly het waar die AWB ouens vir oom Piet en sy maat vas getrek het. Toe die polisie klaar vir Piet weg gevat het, het die 3 AWB karre nog om Willem Boshof se kar gestaan, en n blanke polisieman (willem Boshof jr) het uit die bloute gekom en die 3 karre se registrasie nmrs vir iemand anders op die selfoon gelees. Hy was duidelik nie n polisieman nie en het n ou polisieuniform aan gehad. Toe die AWB manne hom begin konfronteer oor dat hy nie regtig n polisieman is nie, het hy so vinnig as moontlik in sy bakkie geklim en weggejaag, die AWB OUENS (en n ander polisie golfie wat op daai oomblik in die pad afgekom het) is toe agter hom aan en hy is toe later in hegtenis geneem. En soos Ben sê, net na n halfuur… nou wil ek dieselfde vraag vra, hoe kan n blanke man, wat hom voordoen as n polisie man en dan nog wegjaag vir polisie net na n half uur vrygelaat word? Ek se weer Piet en Willem Boshof was van die begin af daar om moeilikheid te maak. Dit is nou al oor en oor bewys dat die VVK die regte pad loop en dat ons vryheid naby is, daar is net een manier wat hulle (die regime en verraaiers) ons kan PROBEER stop, en dis wat hulle donderdag gedoen het. Ek wil sommer die AWB ook baie geluk se met hulle goeie reaksie van Donderdag aand." Steenkamp Face book: http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001104455397&refid=0
