The image on the right was scanned from the front page of “TYDSKRIF”, an Afrikaans magazine which is distributed weekly with the Rapport Sunday National Newspaper, dated 2 November 2008.
When I first saw this image my initial reactions were, “okay, the Boerevolk are now really gatvol of all this crime, corruption, and greed in South Africa, and have decided to take some serious action!” I hurriedly browsed through the magazine only to find that the prominent image was associated with a new “Delta Squad” computer game called “Gears of War 2”.

Children as young as 13-years and as far as Upington are apparently already being trained as soldiers on a farm in the Mookgopong (Naboomspruit-) area. Information regarding the alleged organization leaked out when a 15-year old boy was abducted from his home in Silverton, Pretoria on Thursday and taken to the farm where he apparently learned how to manufacture a bomb and how to use firearms...…”
