Africa will always break your heart!

ByGert Hugo

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Gerrie Hugo was born in South Africa and grew up in this country during the years of Apartheid. As the middle son of a non-commissioned army officer, he soaked up the military mindset in hardcore training camps, such as Oudtshoorn and Bloemfontein. Preparing for battle against the Rooi Gevaar (Red Peril) and the Swart Gevaar (Black Peril) he was determined to save his country. As a colonel in the military he played a role in the ‘border war’ conducted in Angola and Namibia as well as the low intensity war waged within the boundaries of South Africa. Faced with the corruption and lies fed to military and civilian people, Hugo finally lost his blinkers and became disillusioned with the system he was fighting for. During the critical years of transition towards the New South Africa the truth dawned upon him — the ‘enemy’ was not at the borders of his beloved country, but within the very military system he had trusted all his life.
