Dream of exclusive community lands far-rightists in the red.
Kleinfontein, poor cousin of the all-white town of Orania, is being torn apart by death threats, litigation, a qualified audit and calls from residents for the place to be put into liquidation. Although Kleinfontein Boerebelange Koöperatief Beperk (KBK), the far-right-wing Afrikaner enclave outside Pretoria, has been riven by internecine squabbling for years, more recently the management’s reaction to “a disgruntled splinter group” calling itself the Kleinfontein Aksie Beweging (KAB), (Kleinfontein Action Movement) has rent the community.
A document leaked to Noseweek suggests intrigue worthy of a John le Carré novel, set in one of apartheid’s last outposts. A KAB member, who asked not to be named, said the document was penned by one of the Kleinfontein directors and that another director, disillusioned with the management, had stolen the document and handed it over to the KAB.
