I have just spent more than a week in South Africa, documenting the violent ethnic cleansing of white farmers by black extremists. It’s an uncomfortable subject that the mainstream media avoids because it’s contrary to the “official” narrative that only whites can be racist, especially in the country that once had Apartheid laws.
The story must be told. But the South African government is trying to censor me.
On my way back home, South Africa’s border guards ordered that I be detained at the airport. They obviously missed me coming into the country. But they “caught” me trying to leave. Take a look:
They detained me under section 29(1)(d) of South Africa’s Immigration Act — which bans "a member of or adherent to an association or organisation advocating the practice of racial hatred or social violence”.
But I am a member of no such organization and I deplore both racism and violence. In fact, that’s what I was doing in South Africa: exposing the racial hatred and social violence being directed against white farmers.
In the end, the border police let me go — but it was a reminder that South Africa is losing its civil liberties, especially the ability to criticize the governing ANC party or its extremist cousin, the EFF.
South Africa won’t lift a finger to stop violence — but they’ll try to arrest a journalist who exposes it.
I’m free now. And I managed to smuggle my documentary film footage out of the country.

And when our major documentary is done, you’ll see exactly what the South African government didn’t want you to see.
