http://www.iol.co.za/news/south-afri...-many-1.414856KwaZulu-Natal violence monitor Mary de Haas said on Tuesday she had evidence that many of the 452 people arrested in Ulundi last week for allegedly undergoing illegal military training were new recruits, and that the group was not only comprised of former IFP self-protection unit members.
De Haas said the so-called "unintegrated forces" were not being truthful in saying the paramilitary group at Mlaba camp, outside Ulundi, was made of remnants of self-protection units trained in 1996.
"They are recruiting people all the time, including from known IFP strongholds... The young men who are the subject of my letter to Mahlabathini police were recruited, under false pretences, in June.
"The police have had a month to respond to my letters and have not done so," she said.
De Haas said she had given police the names of young men "rescued" from Mlaba camp, where they were allegedly held against their will.
She had written to KZN police commissioner Hamilton Ngidi and the Ulundi station commissioner.
Unintegrated forces president Kereng Motate said there was another group of more than 400 youths camping outside Eshowe.
"We are in all nine provinces. You only know of those who were at Mlaba camp, but there are others you would not be able to see" he said.
Motate said the organisation was arranging legal representation for the Mlaba group.
He would not respond to De Haas's allegations.
1 - those are allegations. Not facts.
2 - she simply says so, so it must be true. Or are we working on the "what if" scenario again?
3 - this is the IFP militia. They were not trained to kill white people. There has, and still is, a schitload of political fighting between all factions of our politics. Assassinations are what they're typically trained for. Not war...

there are MORE political assassinations in southern africa than there are farm murders. you don't see that making the news every week.
on top of that, we can all agree that there is a systematic killing of rhinos in our country, we can all see it and we can see that it is organised and planned and a real threat. if this is so easy then why can the same not be applied to white farmers? this *****-footing around where a farmer is killed every month is far from being organised or systematic.
what annoys me to hell and back is people's priorities too. i an not goign to be so stupid as to assume that people concerned about farm murders want black people to be killed off and don't care about their well being, but i see no reason why white people should get priority. i also don't see any more reason a white death is more brutal or horrible than a black person's death.
there are school girls raped and murdered on their way to school, but nobody is up in arms about that or ****ting their pants in appeal to the UN to intervene and stop this. there is more rape in this country than there are farm murders. i know people have this irrational fear because we just happen to share the skin colour of the people being murdered and are being prepared for the worst case scenario.
further more this guy that was interviewed about the camps, he never mentioned specifically what they were beign taught for. there are just as many white training camps all over south africa that are preparing white boers for a revolution, we saw it with the article about the kids beign taught racism and i followed a nitwit on facebook as he was kicked out of training camps around the country because he was too extreme for them.
nothing is ever going to come of this
Hitler's like the Mickey Mouse of evil. Except Goofy is Goebbels and Minnie is on fire in a ditch.
The problem with you marine1 is that you only see out of one eye. A polarised eye at that. I on the hand am aware that yes farmers are getting murdered and sometimes victims of vicious tortures. All appalling, but unlike you I know this also happens to all the other citizens in this country. You are trying to fit a square peg through a circle.
