The Afrikanerbond (Afrikaner League), established in 1994, is the successor to the Afrikaner Broederbond, formerly a South African secret society.[1] Unlike its predecessor, membership is open to anyone over the age of 18 years who identifies with the Afrikaner community. Applicants are required to go through a selection process before membership is granted. The existence of the organisation is no longer cloaked in secrecy, it now has its own website.[2]

The Afrikanerbond acts in the interest of Afrikaners who are committed to South Africa and want to positively contribute to the creation of a successful South Africa, which provides opportunities for all South Africans. The Afrikanerbond is therefore involved in:

  • the protection and promotion of fundamental rights,
  • protection of constitutional democracy
  • the promotion of responsible citizenship and patriotism.
