The murder of Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging leader Eugene Terreblanche was senseless and could flare up emotions and polarise South Africans even more, the Afrikanerbond said on Sunday.

South Africa’s history is intertwined with particular incidents, but the history is shaped and defined by the manner in which South Africans responded to that particular defining moment.

This is such a moment in South African history,” said chairman Peter Vorster.

“[This] is a time for calm and sober thinking by all South Africans. It is too easy to point fingers and to apportion blame, which will not contribute to a meaningful solution to the serious potential for conflict.” He said in this defining moment, the country required dynamic leadership, wisdom, pragmatism and vision. The Afrikanerbond leadership said it would meet with ANC Secretary-General Gwede Mantashe this week to place this matter on their agenda.
