    The Ossewabrandwag



    The Ossewabrandwag is founded as an Afrikaans nationalist organisation in Bloemfontein, under leadership of Colonel J Laas

    The Ossewabrandwag (Oxwagon sentinel) was evidence of the surging Afrikaner Nationalism during the first half of the 20th century. When the Second World War broke out, the Ossewabrandwag (OB) opposed South African involvement on the side of the Allies. They felt that Germany, against whom the soldiers would fight, were not South Africa's enemies. In fact, many Afrikaners felt a kinship with the Germans because of blood ties. Germany had also supported the Boers morally during the Second Anglo Boer War. A more radical group, the Stormjaers (Storm Chasers), was founded and was responsible for acts of sabotage. These acts prevented many South African soldiers from leaving for the war, as they were now needed to ensure internal security.

    At its formation, all OB members swore an oath not to rest before the Afrikaner nation was free

    Sidney Robey Leibbrandt 1913 - 1966


    Sidney Robey Leibbrandt (born on the 25 Jan.1913 in Potchefstroom/South Africa) of German descent was the South African Heavy Weight Champion, and represented South Africa at the 1934 Empire Games. With the S.A Olympic Team in 1936, Robey went to Germany, where he was impressed with Nazi Germany and as fascinated with Hitler. He returned to Berlin in 1938 to study at the Reich Academy for Gymnastics, and stayed on when war broke out. With help of the German Army he qualified as a glider pilot, and was awarded his paratrooper wings after completing the course.
    The German counterespionage (Abwehr II) under Admiral Canaris ordered to implement Operation Weissdorn, a plan to overthrow the Smuts regime and to bring about a coup d'etat in South Africa with Ossewa Brandwag support. The political elimination of General Smuts was to act as a catalyst to unite the country against the pro-war party.Robey Leibbrandt under the code name of Walter Kempf, was instructed to return to S.A. on the yacht Kyloe.
    June 1941 Robey was put ashore at Mitchells Bay/South Africa. After various adventures, he met Dr van Rensburg, the O.B. leader. Van Rensburg was unsympathetic to Leibbrandt's overtures. Leibbrandt continued in his attempts to drum up support, winning converts to his cause with fiery speeches at meetings in the Oranje Free State. and the Transvaal. These converts took the Blood Oath, and trained in time bomb making sabotage.
    After a confrontation with the police who had been given a tip by the leadership of the O.B. - off Robey evaded capture. A reward of R1000 was offered for his capture, dead or alive. Then a member of his own group betrayed Robey´s trust and the net was beginning to close. On the 21 December, a report in the Rand Daily Mail read, "Leibbraindt Group Smashed." So the 'Operation Weissdorn` was cancelled.
    Robey Leibbrandt's political high treason trial began on 16th November 1942 and he was condemned to death. On 11th March1943 his death sentence was commuted to life imprisonment by General Smuts who had admired Leibbrandt's father as a "courageous Boer warrior" in the Anglo Boer War. After the Nationalist Party won the General Election in May l948, Robey and all other political prisoners were pardoned and released.
    He later married and had five children. Robey Leibbrandt died on 1 August 1966 in Ladybrand.
    (according to C. Whiteing)

    Although the word "Commando" was wrongly used to describe all Boer soldiers, a commando was a unit formed from a particular district. None of the units was organized in regular companies, battalions or squadrons. The Boer commandos were individualists who were difficult to control, resented formal discipline or orders, and earned a British jibe that"every Boer was his own general".

    Could one of our German brethren perhaps translate the footnote?

    The "loyal follower". Today, R.L. lives on his farm Wilgespruit, P.K. Honeydew. His moustache and the names of his three children Adolf, Remer and Izan (Nazi) show that, until today, he hasn't unlearned a thing.

    Thumbs Up Pieter Willem Botha 1916 –2006

    Pieter Willem Botha 1916 –20068th State President of South Africa
    3 September 1984 – 15 August 1989




    Pieter Willem Botha (12 January 1916 – 31 October 2006), commonly known as "P. W." and Die Groot Krokodil (Afrikaans for "The Big Crocodile"), was the prime minister of South Africa from 1978 to 1984 and the first executive state president from 1984 to 1989.

    Botha was a long-time leader of South Africa's National Party and a staunch advocate of the apartheid system although, while in power, he did make some small concessions towards human rights.

    Early in 1998, when Botha refused to testify at the Mandela government's Truth and Reconciliation Commission, he was supported by the far right-wing Conservative Party in his refusal but was fined and given a suspended jail sentence later that year.[1]

    P W Botha was not related to contemporary National Party politician Roelof Frederik "Pik" Botha, who served as apartheid South Africa's foreign minister.

    Botha was born on the farm Telegraaf in the Paul Roux district of the Orange Free State, the son of Afrikaner parents. His father, also named Pieter, fought in a commando against the British in the Second Boer War (1899–1902). During the war his mother was interned in a British concentration camp. He initially attended the Paul Roux School and matriculated from Voortrekker Secondary School Bethlehem, South Africa. In 1934, P.W. Botha entered the Grey University College (now the University of the Free State) in Bloemfontein to study law, but left early at the age of 20 in order to pursue a career in politics. He began working for the National Party as a political organiser in the neighbouring Cape Province.

    In the years leading to World War II, Botha joined the Ossewabrandwag, or Oxwagon Sentinel (OB), a right-wing Afrikaner nationalist group which was sympathetic to the German Nazi Party. However in later years, with Allied victory looming in Europe, Botha was critical of this national socialist movement, favouring Christian nationalism instead, and condemned the Ossewabrandwag, charging it with "interference" in national politics [2]

    In 1943, Botha married Anna Elizabeth Rossouw (Elize), and the couple had two sons and three daughters.

    Afrikaners champion Botha's cause of silence
    Mary Braid
    Thursday, 8 January 1998

    Former South African president, P W Botha, is to be prosecuted for defying a subpoena to appear before the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Mary Braid reports from Johannesburg

    Prosecutors announced yesterday that Mr Botha, 82, must appear in court later this month for failing to attend a hearing of the TRC, the body set up to expose the atrocities of the apartheid era. Mr Botha has condemned the TRC as a "circus" and a "witchhunt" against Afrikaners.

    TRC chairman Arhcbishop Desmond Tutu has bent over backwards in recent months to avoid the martyring of Mr Botha, who, despite his recent engagement to a woman half his age, is reported by his lawyers to be in ill health. But all attempts to get the former president to cooperate with the TRC have failed.

    There are fears Mr Botha may become a focus for white discontent with the new political dispensation. Mr Botha has refused to testify on the work of the state security council which he chaired in the late 1980s and which imposed a brutal state of emergency in which thousands of blacks died in clashes with the security forces.

    Ossewa Brandwag/AWB.

    Ek het 'n boek gelees daaroor in die vroeer 80's wat my verhoed het om by die AWB aan te sluit want beide se topbestuur was deur die vyand aangestel om die dom Wittes aan die neus rond te lei. Net soos in die Ossewa was daar goeie mense in die AWB maar hulle kon toe aan die einde niks uitgerig het nie want hulle was verraai gewees deur hul top bestuur. Jare later toe ek Volksverraad gelees het, het dit bewys dat ek reg was en die geskiedenis dat ek koerek op getree het. Ons mense is nie wys genoeg om hulle uit te ruik nie en so verkwis hul tyd/geld op die kamstige Pro-Wit bewegings.

    Dit was die selfde geval met die kamstige groot generaals, toe die KP en AWB hul doel gedien het, het die vyand die weermag generaals in gebring en die res is geskiedenis. Ek het die mense in Transvaal daardie tyd gewaarsku, los die generaals uit, maar nee wie is ek nou, gee hulle 'n kans. Vandag pluk almal die vrugte van hul onnoselheid. Dit wat ek aan behoort het was deur die vyand verban gewees want hulle het dit nie beheer nie. Soos ek in 'n ander pos gese het, ons is net nie verstandelik in staat om die vyand te uitoorlê nie, hy's te slim vir ons. Ek dink dit het baie te doen met ons opbrengs van kleins af, nie dat ek my ouers wil af kraak nie, want dit gaan verder terug in ons voorgeslagte en word maar net weer oorgedra aan die volgende geslag.

    Totdat ons nie aan ons self erken dat ons denke nie werk nie sal alle planne maar op niks uitloop. Tot op vandag se datum het ons nog niks reg gekry nie.
