This is hair-brained, but comic. Apparently the Boeremag, the right-wing terrorist group that planted several bombs in South Africa last year, planned to finance their scheme to take over the country, seize control of the SABC, and drive all the blacks up the national road to Zimbabwe, by selling -- wait for it -- 200 sheep and a crop of sunflowers. Well, there's a little more to it than that. They also wanted to stage several hijackings, but these apparently came to nought. Not surprisingly, the M&G writes that police spy Johan Smit testified that he was unsure "how the Boeremag had planned to finance an ambitious countrywide take-over plan with so little money, and admitted there had just been 'a lot of talking' at the meetings he attended in 2001 and 2002."
