P W Botha hoax email: Sunday Times
In the following correspondence, the Sunday Times of Johannesburg undertakes to reinstate the link where they distance themselves from a hoax-email containing horrific hate-speech, allegedly by the late SA president P W Botha – but which reported speech was a complete hoax… it was NEVER said by P W Botha.

Hi Paddi Please see email below. Please would you reestablish the link. We have
numerous inquiries about the hoax. Below is the copy that was published in Hogarth in February 2004 – it should be enough:
HOGARTH has been asked so many times by so many people about a certain e-mail that it has become necessary to publish this official notice:
- “No, it is not true that the Sunday Times ran a report on a "speech" by (the late SA president) P W Botha in 1985 in which he was quoted as saying things such as:
"My scientists have come up with a drug that could be smuggled into their brews to effect slow poisoning . . . yadda, yadda, yadda." This speech is totally, absolutely and utterly fictitious. Case closed. End of story. Door slammed shut. The end. Finis.

Dear Susan (and the others) As you know, our mandate - at least at this stage - does not extend to the cyber world. However, if I may for a moment: The request (below) looks like a fair one. Do you agree? Kind regards Johan

Subject: Sunday Times Complaint - Racial intolerance
Dear Press Council,
An email keeps popping up on racist forums as justification for racism against white South Africans in particular. (See the entire hoax email at bottom)
In the past the Sunday Times had a link clearly stating that this email have nothing to do with them and that it is a hoax. This was active till the Sunday Times created a new website and the link was lost. After numurous emails and pleas to have a link up for reference they just did not reply or helped with a new link. After their reference was lost the hoax mushroomed all over the internet again.
- As obvious for us as South Africans that this a hoax, it is not understood by foreign people unfamiliar with SA politics. The Sunday Times name is clearly used in this hoax to give it credibility. It is not only in the best interest of us as South Africans, but also in the interest of the Sunday Times to keep it's name clean. By not doing anything the Sunday Times is helping in a lie becoming truth to those willing to believe this nonsense. Are we not as South Africans supposed to do everything in our power to stop stereotypes and hatred towards each other? Then why is the Sunday Times not doing it's bit to stop such blatant hatred to enforce stereotypes, while the email do it
in the Sunday Time's name?
I requested that the Sunday Times keep a link on their online publication for reference so people can get it from the 'horse's mouth' that this is a hoax. People want to see a physical link from the newspaper mentioned before they believe it to be hoax like they did in the past. This will be greatly appreciated as lies like these add to racial intolerance and I am sure this is not what the Sunday Times are fighting for. It would be naive of the Sunday Times to think if they ignore this, it will go away. As long as there are hateful people out there to spread hatred it will used as a weapon.
I hope I will get a positive reaction from the Presscouncil regarding this and ask the Sunday Times politely to clearly distance themselves from this hoax in a permanent online link.Your feedback about this complaint would be greatly appreciated. Kind Regards,
Henri Le Riche
THE HOAX IS REPRODUCED IN RED PRINT - BELOW
- PW Botha Speech HOAX:
"A hoax email is doing the round purporting that the following was a speech by PW Botha"
"THE FOLLOWING is a speech made by former South African President P.W.Botha to his Cabinet. This reprint was written by David G. Mailu for the Sunday Times, a South African newspaper, dated August 18, 1985. "Pretoria has been made by the White mind for the White man. We are not obliged even the least to try to prove to anybody and to the Blacks that we are superior people. We have demonstrated that to the Blacks in a thousand and one ways. The Republic of South Africa that we know of today has not been created by wishful thinking. We have created it at the expense of intelligence, sweat and blood. Were they Afrikaners who tried to eliminate the Australian Aborigines? Are they Afrikaners who discriminate against Blacks and call them Niggers in the States? Were they Afrikaners who started the slave trade? Where is the Black man appreciated? England discriminates against its Black andtheir "Sus" law is out to discipline the Blacks. Canada, France, Russia, and Japan all play their discrimination too. Why in the hell then is so much noise made about us? Why are they biased against us? I am simply trying to prove to you all that there is nothing unusual we are doing that the so called civilized worlds are not doing. We are
simply an honest people who have come out aloud with a clear philosophy of how we want to live our own White life.
“We do not pretend like other Whites that we like Blacks. The fact that, Blacks look like human beings and act like human beings do not necessarily make them sensible human beings. Hedgehogs are not porcupines and lizards are not crocodiles simply because they look alike. If God wanted us to be equal to the Blacks, he would have created us all of a uniform colour and intellect. But he created us differently: Whites, Blacks, Yellow, Rulers and the ruled. Intellectually, we are superior to the Blacks; that has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt over the years. I believe that the Afrikaner is an honest, God fearing person, who has demonstrated practically the right way of being. Nevertheless, it is comforting to know that behind the scenes, Europe, America, Canada, Australia-and all others are behind us in spite of what they say. For diplomatic relations, we all know what language should be used and where. To prove my point, Comrades, does anyone of you now a White country without an investment or interest in South Africa? Who buys our gold? Who buys our diamonds? Who trades with us? Who is helping us develop other nuclear weapon? The very truth is that we are their people and they are our people. It's a big secret. The strength of our economy is backed by America, Britain, Germany. It is our strong conviction, therefore, that the Black is the raw material for the White man. So Brothers and Sisters, let us join hands together to fight against this Black devil. I appeal to all Afrikaners to come out with any creative means of fighting this war. Surely God cannot forsake his own people whom we are. By now every one of us has seen it practically that the Blacks cannot rule themselves. Give them guns and they will kill each other. They are good in nothing else but making noise, dancing, marrying many wives and indulging in sex. Let us all accept that the Black man is the symbol of poverty, mental inferiority, laziness and emotional incompetence. Isn't it plausible? therefore that the White man is created to rule the Black man? Come to think of what would happen one day if you woke up and on the throne sat a Kaff*ir! Can you imagine what would happen to our women? Does anyone of you believe that the Blacks can rule this country? Hence, we have good reasons to let them all-the Mandelas-rot in prison, and I think we should be commended for having kept them alivein spite of what we have at hand with which to finish them off. I wish to announce a number of new strategies that should be put to use to destroy this Black bug. We should now make use of the chemical weapon. Priority number one, we should not by all means allow any more increases of the Black population lest we be choked very soon. I have exciting news that our scientists have come with an efficient stuff. I am sending out more researchers to the field to identify as many venues as possible where the chemical weapons could be employed to combat any further population increases. The hospital is a very strategic opening, for example and should be fully utilized. The food supply channel should
be used. We have eveloped excellent slow killing poisons and fertility destroyers. Our only fear is in case such stuff came in! ! to their hands as they are bound to start using it against us if you care to think of the many Blacks working for us in our HOMES. However, we are doing the best we can to make sure that the stuff remains strictly in our hands. Secondly, most Blacks are vulnerable to money inducements. I have set aside a special fund to exploit this venue.His inferior sense of morals can be exploited beautifully.
And here is a creature that lacks foresight. There is a need for us to combat him in long term projections that he cannot suspect. The average Black does not plan his life beyond a year: that stance, for example,should be exploited. My special department is already working
round the clock to come out with a long-term operation blueprint. I am also sending a special request to all Afrikaner mothers to double their birth rate. It may be necessary too to set up a population boom industry by putting up centres where we employ and support fully White young men and women to produce children for the nation. We are also investigating the merit of uterus rentals as a possible means of speeding up the growth of our population through surrogate mothers. For the time being, we should also engage a higher gear to make sure that Black men are separated from their women and fines imposed upon married wives who bear illegitimate children. I have a committee working on finding better methods of inciting Blacks against each other and encouraging murders among themselves.Murder cases among Blacks should bear very little punishment in order to encourage them. My scientists have come up with a drug that could be smuggled into their brews to effect slow poisoning results and fertility destruction. Working through drinks and manufacturing of soft drinksgeared to the Blacks, could promote the channels of reducing their population. Ours is not a war that we can use the atomic bomb to
destroy the Blacks, so we must use our intelligence to effect this. The person-to-person encounter can be very effective. As the records show that the Black man is dying to go to bed with the White woman, here is our unique opportunity. Our Sex Mercenary Squad
should go out and camouflage with Apartheid Fighters while doing their operations quietly administering slow killing poison and fertility destroyers to those Blacks they thus befriend.
We are modifying the Sex Mercenary Squad by introducing White men who should go for the militant Black woman and any other vulnerable Black woman. We have received a new supply of prostitutes from Europe and America who are desperate and too keen to take up the appointments. My latest appeal is that the maternity hospital operations should be intensified. We are not paying those people to help bring Black babies to this world but to eliminate them on the very delivery moment. If this department worked very efficiently, a great deal could be achieved.
My Government has set aside a special fund for erecting more covert hospitals and clinics to promote this programme. Money can do anything for you. So while we have it, we should make the best use of it. In the meantime my beloved White citizens, do not take to heart what the world says, and don't be ashamed of being called racists. I do not mind being called the architect and King of Apartheid. I shall not become a monkey simply because someone has called me a monkey. I will still remain your bright star... His Excellency Botha." END OF HOAX EMAIL
Oct 11 2010 - After arrested ex-commander Willem Ratte, 62, and his nine 'co-accused' finally appeared in the Witbank magistrate's court 11 days after a police-raid on 30 September, a black man wearing Muslim headgear spat at the men while they were being taken to the SAPS prison transport after their very brief court appearance, writes Dr Dan Roodt of the pro-Afrikaans Action group.
Below: The former 32nd-battallion officer Willem Ratte, a teacher, was arrested and is being held at Witbank police station together with nine impoverished, unemployed and homeless Afrikaner men (picture below) who were being taught a new trade by Ratte at the former Boer-concentration camp and site of the Boer-Genocide Museum on the farm Eenzaamheid, near Balmoral. Ratte, on a hunger-strike, will not apply for bail. report
The police also raided the museum itself – confiscating antique Boer-era black-powder weapons, claiming in high-profile media interviews that these weapons formed part of an alleged ‘arms cache’ and that the men were ‘plotting to overthrow the government. ‘
At the Pretoria hearing, counsel for the accused Johan van Wyk told the court their arrests were unlawful as there had been no search warrant for the farm where they were arrested, and the men had not done anything unlawful. Five of the 12 weapons seized (above) were legal pellet guns for which no licence was required, while the others were all licensed. The men are being held at WITBANK police station.
Arrested were: Willem Ratte, 63, Eugene Becker (48), Justin Schoeman (18), Günther Kotze (32), Corné de Beer (22), Petrus Visser (20), Marais Bouwer (30), Raymond Senekal (43), Wesley Borman (24) , Christopher Meyer (27).
From the day of this highly irregular raid, Ratte has been on a hunger-strike and is not expected to apply for bail – because his arrest was illegal, writes Roodt. “The nine other Boer men could possibly be released by Friday 'on warning' - ‘pending an investigation by the department of corrective services.'
According to Ratte's charge sheet, he was detained for the "protection of the constitutional democracy against acts of terrorism" and "possession of arms and ammunition". The SAPS said ‘at this stage there were no charges of terrorism.”
As Ratte’s laywer pointed out, all the confiscated weapons moreover, were legal.
At the Pretoria hearing, attended by a large number of supporters, friends and family, (left) the counsel for the accused Johan van Wyk told the court their arrests were unlawful as there had been no search warrant for the farm where they were arrested, and the men had not done anything unlawful.

Dr Roodt writes that there also was a large news-media presence at the courtroom – and that they also interviewed the Israeli pro-Boer activist Avigdor Eskin, who is presently touring SA on a fact-finding mission and was present at the court with Dr Roodt.
Ratte looked 'tired and pale' during his brief appearance, Roodt writes. "After we waited for three-and-a-half hours the detainees finally appeared in the court-room - and were taken back to the Witbank prison within 15 minutes.The court ruled that the bail application for the other nine men would be heard on Friday by noon.”

Avigdor Eskin at court: supports Afrikaner/Boer-cause
In the court-room to provide the Boer men with moral support were some 100 supporters, relatives and friends – and also present was Avigdor Eskin: the Russian-Jewish activist who has given his wholehearted support to the Afrikaner/Boer freedom struggle – and has made a series of videos in which he calls on his fellow-Jews worldwide to help the Afrikaners from the besieged situation they now find themselves in. Eskin is a Russian-Israeli conservative intellectual/activist. Born in the old Soviet Union, Eskin emigrated to Israel where he became involved in political activity. Eskin was raised in an assimilated Jewish family. He studied piano in the famous Gnesin college. Eskin was the youngest Hebrew teacher in Russia; teaching it from the age of 15. He emigrated to Israel in January 1979.
- He said: “The Afrikaner people have always been our friends. They are now being murdered, mutilated and raped.’ He also noted that like the Israeli Jews, the Afrikaners ‘also have no place to flee to – and this is their secret weapon: they will win despite all the overwhelming odds… Why should the Afrikaners have to face genocidal conditions?"
In his video-message to the Afrikaner people on June 10 2010 , Eskin asked:
"People can’t go on living like this. Why should the Afrikaners have to face genocidal conditions, and with some 600,000 of the 3-million Afrikaners already living in dismal homeless conditions in South Africa under an ANC government?
“This cannot go on like this. Fifty-thousand white people have already been murdered by black people in the past fifteen years and many black people have suffered equally under the ANC-government.
- “As it says in the Book of Proverbs, 'a slave cannot be a king. And this is what G-d told us to do - to be humane and keep the Commandments, my message to the Afrikaners is very clear. You are the chosen people, you are going to win, but it is going to be tough. I will help in any way I can. Take the Bible in one hand and have faith'
He also had a message for SA president Jacob Zuma namely that he 'must ask forgiveness from the whole nation. He must be honest, and say 'we tried to run the country, we made a mistake, we can't do it.' Eskin said under the ANC government, 174,000 people have already been murdered, of whom 50,000 were white South Africans, including more than 3,600 Afrikaner farmers. "What is more important here,' he asks. "Slogans about democracy, or human lives? It is time when we say, 'enough is enough. I want to tell the government of the ANC that they should go to church and ask for forgiveness.'

Steenberg, Suna, 43, Kameelfontein businesswoman, Montana Poles and Lapas company, dies from April 16 shooting - Kameelfontein business woman Mrs Suna Steenberg, 43, owner of a construction-supply company, died nearly six months after she was shot and injured during an armed attack by 'men in police-uniforms' on her homestead northeast of Pretoria. She was in a coma ever since. "She fought for her life for more than five months. I don't think she could handle it any longer, said her grieving widower Jurie, 47. http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Vrou-in-koma-na-kopskoot-Sy-sterf-20101010
She was gunned down on 16 April 2010 with two execution-style shots to the head – while shooting back and injuring one attacker. After three months in hospital she was taken home where she was cared for by a team of nurses and her husband. Mrs Steenberg was shot while trying to save her mother-in-law from an armed "gang in police uniforms" which attacked their heavily-fortified Leeufontein smallholding, wrote Graeme Hosken, the Star’s crime reporter, at the time. She had opened fire on the gunmen while they were attacking her mother-in-law, "Tannie Poppie” while workers were offloading poles at the premises.The gunmen took advantage of this event to sneak into the heavily fortified double-storey home, which is surrounded by security surveillance cameras and high walls. Mrs Steenberg grabbed her gun from the legally-required, locked gunsafe and ran to her rescue. One of the uniformed black men disarmed her, grabbed her around the neck – and shot her at point blank range through the head.She shot back, injuring one of the attackers. The SAPS said the room resembled a "war zone, a slaughterhouse" after the murder.As police used helicopters to search for the suspects, who are believed to have escaped in a black Ford Laser, officers cordoned off the scene and forensic experts looked for clues to the gunmen's identities. http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?set_id=1&click_id=13&art_id=vn20100417080252815C910568
Our records show that Leeufontein and Kameeldrift smallholdings – primarily occupied by Afrikaner working-class families - also are the most heavily-attacked smallholding regions in South Africa. Just two weeks earlier on April 7, 2010, matriculant Ernest Hoon, 18, left, was shot dead while asleep in his bed on his parents' smallholding less than 3km away from Steenberg homestead. Other deaths at Leeufontein/Kameeldrift: Marius MacDonald, 42, shot execution-style in front of his family 25 October 2008 while he was tied up. A policeman also shot dead a farm worker during a crime investigation in this region. More on: http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2010/02/leeufontein-smallholder-shoots-dead.html
- Another person with the same surname, namely Adriaan Steenberg, 45, was also shot dead on 8 May 2008 at the smallholding: a nephew of the world-famous Afrikaans author Andre P. Brink, he was a son of Prof Dawie Steenberg, 68, an Alzheimer suffer who also put up a spirited defence against the attackers who killed his son.
Pretoria – October 11 2010 - A 58-year-old unnamed smallholder was shot and wounded during an armed attack, says ER24's Vanessa Jackson."An unknown number of suspects were outside a window, and shot the unarmed man through a window at close range, hitting him in the shoulder. The man then fled deeper into the house where the suspects pursued him."The man explained that as he fled was being pursued, more shots were fired, but he was lucky not to be hit again," said Jackson. The gunmen strolled away several minutes later just as the SAPS arrived. Nothing was robbed. His wife and teenaged-child were traumatised but physically unharmed. The smallholder was taken to a nearby hospital. Of course, the SA police 'could not immediately provide details of the incident." They refer to it as a ‘thwarted robbery’ but nothing was robbed. http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Man-shot-through-window-20101011
2010-10-08 Alta Snyman reports from Hartbeespoort: A 43-year-old Afrikaner boilermaker from the Crocodile River Mine's Marula shaft, Heinrich Heck, was shot dead in the third 'armed robbery' in the Hartbeespoort rural region this week. Heck died in the ambulance enroute to the Eugène Marais-hospitaal in Pretoria. Police describe it as 'an armed robbery'- however nothing was robbed from the working-class Afrikaans family.
Community crime-forum chairman Romano van der Spuy said Mr Heck, his wife and two children were watching TV in their mine-owned house at around 19:30 in Sven Street, Ifafi when two armed black men walked into their living room. They had cut open the wire-fencing around the garden. One man pushed a handgun to the 14-year-old boy's head. Mrs Heck jumped up, screamed and ran away. Mr Heck threw the glass he was holding at the gunman threatening to shoot his son - and the gunman then shot the father in the chest.
The two black gunmen left without stealing anything or making any demands.Hartbeespoort paramedics tried for 45 minutes to stabilise Mr Heck. Nyce said the mining-family moved into the Ifafa house about two months ago after having lived in nearby Brits for 14 years.
The couple were described as 'quiet, spontaneous, friendly people who enjoyed what they were doing and weren't trouble-makers'.Mrs Heck and the children were reportedly 'very traumatised' and refused to return to the murder-house.SAPS spokesman col Junior Metsi confirmed that 'a case of murder' was investigated. Of course no-one was arrested.http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Derde-huisroof-in-n-week-in-dorp-eis-pa-20101008
On Oct 9 2010, Friday, Mrs Dorie Booyens and her family were attacked at their smallholding 1km from the Heck house by a group of armed black men who drove into their garage with a white Ford Focus and loaded it with household items, trophies and a coin collection.http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Derde-huisroof-in-n-week-in-dorp-eis-pa-20101008
On Ocvt 11 2010, a Monday , Manie and Linda Warren were attacked at 19:30 in an Ifafi security complex and held at gunpoint while their home was looted. Security experts said most of these armed robbery killer-gangs come from the squatter camps Diepsloot and Atteridgeville.
New Zealand rugby-men John Mitchell and Wayne Taylor attacked by black knifemen, Hyde Park, Johannesburg http://www.sport24.co.za/Rugby/Mitchell-receives-counselling-20101011
Johannesburg – Oct 9 2010 - New Zealand's former rugby coach John Mitchell, 46, – now head coach at the SA Lions’ provincial side - was stabbed by attackers inside the home he shares with countryman Wayne Taylor in Hyde Park, Johannesburg. Mitchell, who joined Lions in July, was discharged from hospital Sunday morning after being stabbed in the thigh and upper arm, club spokeswoman Krystle Geach said. Two black males broke into the house in the wealthy Hyde Park suburb.The former All Blacks player was taken to hospital in Sandton, where he received stitches to the two wounds, Geach said. Lions president Kevin de Klerk said: "We have rallied around both John and Wayne during this terrible time and have placed them both in new accommodation for the time being while we find them permanent residency." De Klerk added. "The complex they were staying in has a reputation for being very safe, and as a result we never had any doubt that they were out of harm's way." Mitchell received trauma counselling. http://www.sport24.co.za/Rugby/Mitchell-receives-counselling-20101011
Killer-security guard: "I shot the two bitches... I killed them...'
2010-10-10 "I shot the two bitches. I'm done with them. I killed them." So said a Fidelity Security Group guard to a colleague on Saturday, shortly after he executed two female colleagues with a shotgun at a Transnet depot just outside Krugersdorp. One of the murdered women begged in vain for her life after the first shot was fired. SAPS spokeswoman Odette van Staden said one woman was shot in the face, and the other in the body. The man is expected to appear in court in Krugersdorp Monday.The names of the murdered women were not released. After shooting the women, the killer-guard told his colleague to "phone the police because he wanted to go and buy airtime".All three worked for the Fidelity Security Group. He is stationed at Transnet's Millsite engineering depot, and the two women were security guards at Transnet's locomotive depot next door. The two women had entered the engineering depot premises at about 09:45, a fourth security guard told Beeld on Sunday on condition of anonymity. "I asked if I could help them and what they were looking for. They said ‘it had nothing to do with me and that their superior had sent them’." The witness says his colleague was very aggressive from the start when he saw the two women. According to him, the killer walked to the office in search of the women. However, he soon returned and said they were not there. "He then went to the back to keep looking for them, and it wasn't long before I heard a shot being fired. I grabbed my pistol and ran outside to look. Then I heard a woman scream: 'Don't shoot me, don't kill me, please! Who will take care of my child?' Then another shot went off." The bodies of the two women lay about 100m from each other. According to the witness, the suspected murderer came walking up to him and said: "I shot the two bitches. What are they doing here? What are they doing on my fucking premises? I killed them." "He said I should phone the police," the witness said. "I wet my pants because I thought he was going to shoot me." He called the police after he convinced his colleague to lock away his weapon. Police were at the scene within minutes. While the witness was still talking to the police, the suspected shooter came back and said: "Tell them (the police) I'm back." SAPS spokeswoman Odette van Staden said one woman was shot in the face, and the other in the body. The man is expected to appear in court in Krugersdorp on Monday.The names of the murdered women were not released. http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Guard-hunts-down-women-20101010
