Pastor plotted to kill thousands of Black people with poisoned water, biological weapons, prosecutor said

A South African court has convicted a pastor of plotting to overthrow the government and to kill thousands of Black people in the country.

Harry Johannes Knoesen, 61, a leader of the National Christian Resistance Movement, was on Monday found guilty of high treason, incitement to carry out violent attacks, and recruiting people to commit attacks

Knoesen’s group explored the possibility of using a biological weapon to infect and kill Black people, including the poisoning of water reservoirs supplying Black communities, according to the prosecution.

Knoesen was also found guilty of unlawful possession of firearms by the Middelburg High Court. Weapons and ammunition were found when he was arrested in Middelburg, a small town in the eastern Mpumalanga province.

The plot by the pastor’s group was foiled in 2019 by South Africa’s police and intelligence services, who have since dismantled the organization’s cells across various parts of the country and arrested some of its leaders.

Knoesen was convicted on evidence from witnesses including members of his group who are already serving jail sentences after they were convicted of similar crimes.

The state alleged that Knoesen’s plot was motivated by his “highly racial views” and that he sought to justify his beliefs on religious grounds, claiming that he was ordained to “reclaim South Africa for white people.”

“To further this end, he planned to attack government institutions and more specifically police and military institutions,” Monica Nyuswa, a spokeswoman for the National Prosecuting Authority, told The Associated Press.

He also identified townships and informal settlements occupied by Black South Africans as targets for attack, she said.

Knoesen allegedly used social media platform Facebook to incite violence against Black people and to recruit former members of South Africa’s military to join his movement and to carry out the planned attacks. These were foiled when he was arrested in November 2019 and the cells in various parts of the country were dismantled.

In his testimony, Knoesen admitted to sharing “recipes” to manufacture explosives with his followers on Facebook, according to the Middelburg Observer newspaper.

This is not the first racist, treasonous plot to be uncovered in South Africa.

In 2013, 20 members of the right-wing white supremacy group known as the Boeremag were sentenced to prison for plotting to kill South Africa’s first Black president Nelson Mandela, overthrow the government and kill thousands of Black people.

They were handed sentences ranging from five to 35 years following a 10-year treason trial, one of the longest in the country’s history.

That group, like Knoesen’s, was opposed to South Africa’s democracy which brought an end to apartheid, the country’s regime of white minority rule that ended with the first democratic elections in 1994 which elected Mandela president.

Knoesen is expected back in court on June 10 for the beginning of sentencing proceedings.

@Mr1stokes, I have actually sat down and watched videos on black folks being interviewed in the black communities on why they keep supporting a party that produces no result for them and the answers were profoundly saddening. First off, they are ignorant on the issues affecting the black community. If you ask them what the black community needs the first thing they say money. Well….. every  communities needs money. They really and truly believes the Democrats cares about them when all they get is the same result of doing nothing. The Bible says when you do the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome its insanity. The only time Democrats cares about black folks is when their votes matter ever election cycle. Every election they visit these black communities pandering and virtue signaling how they care about them and how they’re being oppressed, marginalized and disenfranchised and they’re the one to fix it. This happens every election cycle and they can’t see beyond it. If you really want to help the black community why would you want to  defund the police? No other community needs more policing than the black community when you have neggoes killing one another. When Martin Luther King was advocating for civil rights and voting rights and couldn’t get from the Democrats but got it from the Republicans. L B Johnson went to his counterparts and told them they’re making a big mistake by not abolishing slavery. His direct quote, you can look it up. “You guys are making a big mistake.” “We can own the black community for a 100 years if we give them handouts.” What kind of handouts was he referring to? Food stamps, WIC, and many of the assistance programs we have. They came about to keep black folks dependent. There are people out there that legitimately needs this type of help but it was not designed for folks to stay on. It was designed to help you get back on your feet but you see people particularly in the black community stay on these programs and refused to work. So L B Johnson tactic worked………..When the selected dude we have in office now (Biden) was running as the Democrat runner. He promised them that he would get reed of student loan. Did that happened? No. He promised he would help the black community. Did that happened? No. Let them keep voting their demise. Before Trump, black voted 90% Democrats and it dropped to I believe to 78% due to Obama failing them. Let’s see what it will be 2024. If you keep voting for ungodly people who wants to now murder babies after they are born and who hates God and now saying eef prayers. Why would you think your circumstances will get any better when you’re in direction violation of the One you’re sinning against???…. The Bible says who have an ear let them hear.

@Sheldine Where in the Bible it says God is black?….. God is neither black or white. The Bible says He is a Spirit. I know the black community has formulated a black savior by the figment of their imagination which is just that. But, in reality that is nowhere to be found in the Bible. The Bible gives two description of the Lord Jesus found in the Book of Revelation and Daniel. Daniel 10:5-6 KJV
[5] Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: [6] His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps f of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished g brass, and the voice of his words like the voice h of a multitude. …

And the word “Beryl” in color means green.

Revelation 1:13-16 KJV
[13] And in the midst of the seven candlesticks j one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt k about the paps l with a golden girdle. m [14] His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; [15] And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. [16] And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. …
