Volkstaat (Afrikaans for "People's state") is a proposal for the establishment of a homeland for Afrikaners. Outside a possible use of force, the South African Constitution and International Legislation present certain possibilities for the establishment of such a state. The South African regime declared that they would not support a Volkstaat, but "would do everything they could to ensure the protection of the Afrikaner language and culture". What a fine job they are doing.

The black bomb

The Volkstaat is mentioned by very strange people with very strange ideas. This dude wants black Africa to have The Bomb. He wants the white scientists to build it for him.

The government of South Africa, under the leadership of His Excellency President Thabo Mbeki, should revive the Apartheid-era Nuclear Weapons Program and utilise its Nuclear Materials & Installations along with the Nuclear Scientific talents of the African World (and in conjunction with the Nuclear Establishments of Algeria & Egypt) in order to bring into existence a Pan African Nuclear Deterrent Option – the “BLACK BOMB” – for the collective defence of the AU from what is plainly a clear and present Nuclear Danger to its member states.

A May 1994 editorial in the New York Times reported that a group of 16 recently laid-off ex-Apartheid Nuclear Scientists had threatened to sell their know-how to the highest bidder unless they received a million-dollar severance package. Some of these disgruntled former members of South Africa’s Nuclear Weapons Program have, indeed, placed themselves at the disposal of elements in the Afrikaner “Third Force” (believed to include top SADF military officers, former AEC & Armscor officials, National Party politicians and Afrikaner industrialists) who aim to use a form of Nuclear Blackmail, at some future point, to either reverse Black Political Rule in the country as a whole or secure a White Homeland (or Volkstaat) within it. Such aspirations on the part of this population group exceed the bounds of the sheerest folly and represent a woeful waste of their scientific skills.

One of the ways in which these Nuclear Specialists could make themselves useful – and, in the process, redeem themselves for having served a vile white supremacist regime – is by placing their talents at the disposal of the AU and playing their part in the development of the PAN AFRICAN ATOMIC BOMB. In this way they will not only realise their full potential as Nuclear Weapon Scientists but they will also prove to the rest of the continent that they really are “every bit as African as any Black Man”.
