It was the Afrikaner’s darkest hour when the diehards of the Anglo Boer War locked horns twelve years later: On the one side the government forces (Kakies) of Prime Minister Louis Botha and his Minister of Defence, Jan Smuts – and on the other, the rebellion commandoes of General Koos de la Rey and Commandant Generals Christiaan de Wet and Christiaan Beyers. Only a few months later, all was over. The end was bitterer than that of 1902.

Eight AfriForum Youth SRC candidates today filed an appeal against a decision of the student court of the University of Stellenbosch (US). The order directed that no student council elections may take place at the US until the university provided AfriForum’s candidates with reasons for their disqualification from the student council elections and until they had an opportunity to appeal against it.

The annual convocation meeting of the University of Stellenbosch (US), which takes place today, will progress peacefully according to Prof Wim de Villiers, Rector and Vice-chancellor of the US. In a letter to AfriForum Youth dated 15 January 2016, Prof De Villiers gave the assurance that individual as well as general campus safety will prevail at the US during the meeting.
AfriForum Youth started identifying a pattern in Prof. Wim de Villiers, Rector and Vice-chancellor of the University of Stellenbosch (US), of attempting to bypass official processes time and again. The latest act to confirm this is his decision to introduce English as the only language of communication at the US.
AfriForum Youth took notice with great concern regarding the decision taken by the Council of the University of Stellenbosch (US) during its Board Meeting on 28 September to no longer protect Afrikaans as medium of instruction in the official language policy of the university and other documents.
Dear Stellenbosch student,
The recent video called Listen, loaded on social media by the group Open Stellenbosch, is nothing but cheap propaganda. I know some members of the public, and especially members of Open Stellenbosch, will not agree with my statement, but give me the opportunity to explain.
