The trial of 20 men who were involved in a plot to kill South Africa's first black president Nelson Mandela and drive blacks out of the country is now over as a South African court has convicted all the men involved in such act. The trial which lasted over a decade.
An organisation called The “Boeremag” a reference to the descendants of the first Dutch colonizers did planned a coup which was a failure in 2002. The aim was to overthrow the goverment and replace the government with white military rule and chase all blacks and Indians from the country. They planned to cause chaos and confusion through bomb blasts then take over military bases.
Many lives were lost in the failed coup through the blast shook the Johannesburg township in Soweto in October 2002..The group could face up to life in prison because South Africa does not have the death penalty.
Finally it’s all over now! Please share your thoughts with me.
