S. Africa White Supremacist Found Guilty of High Treason
Will Pamela Geller protest the verdict?
The mastermind of a “Boer Army” white supremacist plot to assassinate Nelson Mandela and drive blacks out of South Africa was found guilty of high treason on Thursday after a trial that lasted almost 10 years.
Former university lecturer Mike du Toit was the first member of the “Boeremag,” a rag-tag militia of apartheid loyalists, to be found guilty in connection with a botched 2002 coup attempt in Africa’s biggest economy, which aimed to overthrow the ruling African National Congress.
He will be sentenced at a later date, and may face life in jail. Verdicts on 21 other Boeremag members are expected over the next few weeks.
