"Right-Wing" bomb plot foiled, apparently, but why "right-wing"? Do these guys hold firm positions on the role of government in the economy, privatisation and the welfare state?
So, the SAPS prove they can track down and apprehend murderous criminals when they want to. Their considerable expertise might now be employed to hunt down and exterminate the roving gangs of farmer-killers.
Bombing a township would also seem an unwise use of resources. Just drive a KFC-laden truck into a township, drop the sides, sit back and watch the carnage!
South African police have foiled a white right-wing bomb plot against black townships in South Africa, a month before the World Cup, local media reported Friday.
Police Minister Nathi Mthetwa told journalists in Cape Town that the police had arrested people in the capital Pretoria who were "manufacturing arsenals of destruction," The Star newspaper reported.
"They were going to test some of their explosives in any black township," he was quoted as saying.
The arrests took place in April when police swept areas for illegal firearms after the expiry of a three-month firearms amnesty, the report said.
The Sowetan newspaper quoted a police ministry spokesman as saying five people had been arrested in Pretoria and in Worcester, a town north-east of Cape Town in the Western Cape.
Terreblanche, who led a group of die-hard opponents to black majority rule that tried to derail the transition to democracy in the 1990s, was murdered on his farm.
Two black farmworkers have been charged in connection with the attack.
His supporters initially vowed to avenge his attack but later retracted the threat.
Shortly afterwards, the Sunday Independent reported that police were investigating an alleged right-wing plot to sabotage the World Cup and had arrested a man in Worcester in connection with the discovery of an arms cache at his home.
Some of the 10 stadiums that will host World Cup games are located in black townships but Mthetwa has ruled out any threat to fans travelling to the June-July World Cup.
"We are monitoring everything in the country," he said. - Sapa-dpa
