A Knapsack tour in the footsteps of the Rebels

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.

  • Koos de la Rey
  • Christiaan de Wet
  • Jan Kemp
  • Jopie Fourie
  • Manie Maritz

How does such a tragedy strike?
Who were the role players?
How does one look back on it after a century?

Pack your knapsack and tour the Kalahari in the footsteps of Generals Kemp and Maritz with AfriForum Youth

Costs: Free

Maties SRC election

Why must I participate in the student council elections?

A competent student council (SRC):

  1. Communicates with students and is aware of the latest developments;
  2. Addresses complaints received from students;
  3. Avoids political coaxing and does what is really in the interests of students;
  4. Prevents a small group of anarchists from speaking on behalf of all students;
  5. Takes the opinions of students into consideration during decision making and does not rely on their own opinion only;
  6. Doesn’t allow itself to be dictated by management;
  7. Attempts to keep the students happy, not management;
  8. Speaks on your behalf at the council and senate;
  9. Doesn’t hesitate to approach the courts in order to protect the rights of students.

Vote for a student council (SRC) if you are fed up with:

  1. Violence on campus;
  2. A small group of anarchists that apparently speaks on your behalf;
  3. An SRC that doesn’t listen to students;
  4. An SRC that doesn’t take any action with regards to the complaints of students;
  5. An SRC that takes decisions without considering the opinions of students;
  6. An SRC that only attempts to keep political parties happy;
  7. An SRC that is more interested in keeping management happy rather than students;
  8. An SRC that doesn’t act on behalf of students, but rather allows itself to be dictated by management;
  9. An SRC that is too scared and isolated to approach the courts if deemed necessary;
  10. An SRC that gives way to intimidation.

by in Blog Hot on 26 August, 2015

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.
