- South African police and other security structures are heightening visibility in the small town of Ventersdorp, where the burial of the murdered white supremacist, Eugene Terre Blanche, will be held.
Mr Terre Blanche was killed on Saturday, by two of his farm workers, in what is believed to have been a pay dispute.
Police spokesperson, Adele Myburgh, has told the media that the police were not going to take any chances with the security and were prepared for anything.
Since the announcement of the death and the appearance of the two suspects in court on Tuesday, racial tensions have been mounting in the town and around South Africa, especially between the blacks and the whites.
However, the right wing leaders have retracted their statements for revenge and even distancing themselves on any elements or acts of violence that may arise.
Mr Terre Blanche, was the leader and founder of the right wing Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB), founded in 1973. Since the fall of apartheid and introduction of democracy in South Africa in 1994, he has been on a persistent call for an independent ‘Boer Republic’ in South Africa.
His campaign was however cut short by numerous racial assault cases and one of terrorism aimed at destabilising South Africa, that landed him to jail.
Reports from Ventersdorp suggest that the small town is fully booked, mainly with international journalists coming to cover the funeral and burial.
