AWB Secretary General Andre Visagie in TV studio bust up


The leader of a far right paramilitary group stormed out of a live TV debate amid continuing tension following the murder of Eugene Terreblanche

Secretary General of the AWB Andre Visagie was appearing on the ETV television show Africa 360, when he stood up and appeared to threaten Lebohang Pheko, director of policy of a campaign group.

ETV anchor Chris Maroleng intervened before Mr Visagie called his own security man onto the set. Visagie claims he was not being given the chance to answer accusations made against him.

Tensions are continuing to run high in South Africa following the killing of white supremacist and former AWB leader Eugene Terreblanche.
