Eugene Terreblanche, Leader of the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB), was found brutally murdered in a racial killing at his farm in South Africa. His ancestors came from France. His grandfather, Etienne Terreblanche (also spelled Terre'Blanche) , was a rebel from the British Cape Colony, who fought on the Boer side. His father was a Lieutenant Colonel in the previous South African Defence Force and also the Commander of his district.
Eugene Terreblanche was selected out of 20,000 able young Police Officers to guard the State President and Prime Minister of that time in South Africa. His Prime Minister's liberal views became a disappointment to Eugene Terreblanche. In 1970, with 6 other kindred souls, they founded the Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB).
From this committee of seven, the AWB emblem, "Three Sevens", was created in contrast with the number 666 of the satanic forces, the AWB being deeply Christan.
His movement increased from 7 founder members to a number of 70 000 out of a White population of 3,5 million.
During public gatherings he drew bigger audiences than any other so-called White leaders locally. However, the White Government turned a cold shoulder towards his advice and warnings and capitulated to the ANC, a Black majority political party.
The new Black ANC Government constructed scandals and false court cases against Eugene Terreblanche with the aid of their agents and the left wing media. The AWB and its general staff, however, could see through the hidden agendas and remained true to him as the only White leader. Up to Saturday he carried the torch of freedom for his nation and was recognised as one of the best orators in the world. Since 1994, 3,000 White farmers have been murdered in racially motivated attacks. The AWB have pledged to carry on, more determined than ever.
