‘Hate Camp’ Must Be Probed: DA [South Africa]
“This training includes firearm handling and political indoctrination designed to foster racial hatred,” said spokesman Mmusi Maimane on Friday.
The camp outside Carolina, called Kommandokorps, claims to have trained over 1500 boys.
The Mail & Guardian newspaper reported that boys — aged between 13 and 19 — were told that black people were the most under-developed, barbaric members of the human race. The boys heard that blacks had a smaller cerebral cortex and therefore could not use their initiative or govern properly.
Maimane said it would ask the SAHRC to investigate whether the activities at the camp were legal. It would ask whether hate crimes had been perpetrated, how the group received its weapons, and how the boys were recruited.
