Did not know that
every group has its traitors
How about Jan Smuts?
@alexfletcha I think D.F. Malan said it best in parliament, and I paraphrase:
I support building a statue for Jan Smuts. We can build it next to that of Jan van Riebeeck. But, as Jan van Riebeeck's statue gazes towards the mountain, Smuts' statue must gaze towards the ocean...
He's got that bad a reputation. Wow.
I grew up in Durban. I can't remember hearing anything bad about him.
He was snug in the pocket of the British.
I remember my parents and their friends mentioning 1948 when Smuts lost the election - as in that was a bad thing. But then we were Brits so it makes sense.
He had Jopie Fourie, an Afrikaner rebel and freedom fighter executed to show his subservience to the crown.
Was that during WW1?
The 1914 Revolt, occurred because the men who supported the re-creation of the old Boer republics rose up against the government of the Union of South Africa as they did not want to side with the British against Germany. Many Boers had German ancestry and many members of the government were themselves former Boer military leaders who had fought with the rebels against the British in the Second Boer War. The rebellion was put down by Louis Botha and Jan Smuts, the ringleaders received fines and terms of imprisonment.
Yeah I've read about that, although I don't remember the names of the rebels.
Jopie Fourie's execution: An Afrikaner delegation that included future prime minister D.F. Malan unsuccessfully petitioned Minister of Defence, Gen. Smuts, to extend leniency. No mercy was given. Fourie was executed without a blindfold on 20 December 1914.
Tfw you will never have a beard as majestic as a Boer warrior
Looking through my old books
Aaah niets, alleen een artikel over Jan Smuts...
Goodluck with that Custom Emoji's suck op hierdie oomblik nog op discord omdat alles te klein is
Ek dink daai silhouette is ikonies genoeg sodat mense weet.
Dinge scale nie soos wat die std goed scale nie daar is 'n trick met dit
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
That pic just made me thought of this for some reason.

@Shiver use vector graphics like png, scales better without losing quality.
Oops moes dit in Afrikaans se
^^^ Nostalgie. Ek het gegaan tot my 5 jaar juk. 💪😎💪
@cµrvy well portable network graphic, SVG was probably what I should have said lol, but png is scalable though.
ya, makes it more scalable because it's lossless.

As ek omdraai, skiet my. As ek val, wreek my. As ek storm, volg my
@Tanja Soortvan maar ek voel sleg ek moet bietjie meer belangstel. Sal by die volgende familie byeenkoms definitief n gesprek begin met die ouer lede
@Dewald verseker, onthou, hulle gaan nie veraltyd leef nie. Ek het dit gedoen en uitgevind my eerste voorgeslag wat gebore is in Suid Afrika was in 1705. Sy pa het geland in die Kaap in 1688. Dis nogals amazing.
Ek weet ek is van my Ma en Pa se kant afkomstig van die Franse Hugenote. Hulle het ook seker daardie tyd hier aan gekom. Nee ek stem hoe ouer ek word hoe meer besef ek dat dit belangrik is om van jou familie se geskiedenis te leer
@Dewald hier is iets oor my oupagrootjie: *Krygsgevangende Anglo Boere Oorlog. Nr. 24109 Datum gevang: 1901/09/03 te Zuikerbosch Ouderdom: 17 Kamp: Siakot, Umballa, Ahmedaager, India.*
Net vanaf die manlike voorgeslagte is ek ook 'n afstammeling van die Franse Hugenote. Hy was gebore in Flanders.
Hallo almal, hiers ietsie wat ek aan mekaar geslaan het. Laat my weet wat julle dink. Eks bly daar is ander mense wat soos ek dink in die wereld.
“De Oorlog in Zuid-Afrika” by L. Penning, book from 1899 I found last week
In the above pictures is F.W reitz. His son Deneys Reitz wrote a book called 'commando',about his time in the boer war,it is a must read.
Countryside surrounding Orania:
Oops I blame my stupid phone and my thick fingers 😬
How do you even shoot straight on horseback like that? If a war should break out what will we do without fuel?
On the eve of the Battle of Blood River, the Voortrekkers made a vow to God. If God would deliver them from the Zulu army they would bond their posterity to commemorate that day as a Sabbath every year. God granted them a miraculous delivery where not one Boer was killed.
