Many tens of thousands Destitute Afrikaner homeless face forced removal all over Pretoria - the city of their birth and the city which was founded by their forefathers -- due to a threatening ANC-lawsuit on June 7 2011 in Pretoria Magistrate's court against Angels at Work charity's Magda Stroebel: the ANC-run city council wants her to remove her neat, orderly Wendy Houses, which are housing homeless Afrikaner families. The ANC council has not lodged similar lawsuits against the wendy houses in black townships - they have singled out Angels at Work as a 'test-case which will again be heard on June 7 2011. It has been repeatedly postponed since 2009 forcing the charity to use its scarce financial resources to pay for legal costs instead of feeding and housing the growing number of poor Afrikaners in Pretoria.
This Afrikaner squatter camp, located at Nr 929 Keyser Street, is on a smallholding run by the formidable Mrs Magda Stroebel’s charity Angels at Work in the Pretoria Moot region. The Freedom Front Plus had been paying for this squatter’ community’s ongoing legal battle with the Pretoria city council since 2009 — to try and stop the local ANC-municipality from demolishing their wendy-houses and dumping these destitute Afrikaners – amongst them are many children and several dozen frail elderly – out into the the street. If the ANC-council obtains its court-order to demolish the Wendy Houses of Afrikaner squatter camps, many tens of thousands of Afrikaner poor face being ethnically cleansed from the city of their forefathers.
Freedom Front withdraws financial support to Afrikaner squatters
However after their poor showing in the local-government elections in May, the Freedom Front became so miffed about their belief that these Afrikaner squatters 'had voted enmasse for the Democratic Alliance' (*how would they know that, votes are supposed to be secret?) that they withdrew their financial support to Mrs Stroebel’s court case (above) just twee weeks before she was due to go to court on June 7 -- with regional FF+ leader Philip van Staden writing to the charity (letter attached) that he’d been asked by Advocate Anton Alberts, its MP for Gauteng, to withdraw their financial support to the charity, writing:
“You are staring prosecution in the face in the absence of our help’…
“We withdraw our financial support due to the fact that the residents of the wendy houses voted in great numbers on Wednesday 18 May 2011 for the Democratic Alliance in the municipal election. We also received calls at our head-office from those residents that they voted for the DA. These residents stated very clearly that they did not want the help of the Freedom Front Plus and thus we now recommend that the residents should seek help from the DA instead’. He also added rather ominously: “We must also advise you to move the residents elsewhere because you are staring prosecution in the face in the absence of our help’. However, he also wrote that ‘we will continue to fight for this case inside the city council’.
Shortly after faxing the letter, Mr Van Staden reportedly contacted Mrs Stroebel and said he would try to raise funds on his own to help pay for the legal costs of the case.
Mrs Stroebel however now is clearly desperate: she faces having to pay R3,000 in legal bills up front to the lawyer handling the case, Roelof van der Merwe, before the next court date on June 7. The total costs may be as high as R7,000 (about $700). If anyone would be willing to provide financial sponsorship for this forthcoming court date, Magda Stroebel’s lawyer Roelof Van der Merwe can be reached at:
