Police apprehended 26 members of a right-wing gang who were plotting to blow up train tracks, target the police air wing at Grand Central Airport, bridges, and a Buddhist monastery.

The 46-year-old defendant was one of 20 Boeremag members convicted of high treason in 2013 by the Gauteng High Court in Pretoria, with penalties ranging from five to 48 years.

He was previously convicted for his role in a series of bomb explosions in Soweto in 2002, one of which killed a woman.

The head, Tom Vorster, and five members of its bomb squad, which was responsible for blowing up their targets, were among those convicted in 2013. Vorster, as well as bombers Herman van Rooyen, Johan and Wilhelm Pretorius, and Rudi Gouws, were sentenced to 25 years in prison.
