John Vorster

Vorster was South Africa’s Prime Minister, then President, in the 60’s and 70’s.

During WW2, he opposed South Africa siding with Britain against Hitler. He joined the Ossewabrandwag (Oxwagon Sentinel) and was detained from 1942 to 1944 as a result. (PW Botha also was a member of the group).

Wiki’s article on Vorster

I only blog about this guy because of something I read in an article by Tim Wise, from way back in 2001.
