The White Cross Monument is a memorial site for persecuted Christians, that were raped, tortured and murdered in South Africa over the past 18 years. The monument is unique in the world as it grows annually, with more crosses being added each year, to commemorate the latest victims of the Systematic Genocide of a Christian Minority.
The monument is not registered under the terms of the National Monuments Act of 1969. The government of South Africa and in particularly the current president Cyril Ramaphosa, denies its existence and do not recognise incidents of Christian minorities such as “Boers” or “Farmers” being murdered.
In an interview with the Heritage Foundation, spokesperson Cecilia Kruger encouraged the preservation of the White Cross Monument, but excluded the possibility of the monument being managed by the Heritage Foundation because of lack of funding and jurisdiction.
The monument is located on a hillside at Ysterberg, just outside Mokopane. It can be found on the road between Potgietersrus and Pietersburg, in Mpumalanga South Africa.
So far over 4000 crosses have been erected at the monument, by families and friends of the victims. Many of the crosses are arranged in a pattern, to form a large white cross giving the monument its name. The number of crosses represent only a small fraction of the Christians that were murdered. Estimates of the actual number of Christians murdered, vary with some as high as 70 000. Every year more and more crosses are added.
Entrance is currently free, but has to be arranged in advance with the curator.
The curator is Lita Cross Fourie. For the past 18 years, she has organised and managed the upkeep of the monument.
Map to White Cross Monument
On September 6, Christians gather at the White Cross Monument, to mourn the tragic loss of their loved ones. Men, women and children that were raped, tortured and brutally slaughtered.
2019 showed a heart wrenching decline, in media attendance.
As new crosses, were added to decorate the hillside, this little boy caught the eye of our volunteer photographer.
This White Cross is that of Janus Powell. On the evening of the 20 April 2019, Janus was murdered on his farm between Hopetown and Bloemhof. Only 37 years old, he was murdered in front of his parents, Antoon and Tharina Powell and his wife, Anemie.
Less than six months ago , Little JJ (3), was asleep in their house. When he woke up. It would be in a terrible new world. One in which his father, had just been gunned down in cold blood. Janus Powell’s cross, now joins the thousands of murdered Christians in South Africa.
Next to the little boy, our photographer noticed a little girl, about 7 years old, hugging a White Cross with the words “Pappa Kallie”. Pappa means daddy in Afrikaans. The scene is tragic beyond words, as more crosses join the thousands of White Crosses on display, transforming the landscape at the White Cross Monument into a War Cemetery.
The monument is an exhibit of the systematic genocide of a Christian Minority, while the world watches in Silence.
For the victimised minority of Christians, the White Cross Monument will forever be, the legacy of the failing democracy, called South Africa. The monument represent, the failure of every voter in South Africa, that keep corrupt and bloodlust politicians in power.
Evidence of Government and Mainstream Media Corruption
A report from July 2019, on support for persecuted Christians, released by the British Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, state that the number of countries where Christians suffer, rose from 125 in 2015 to 144, a year later.
The independent review prepared by the Bishop of Truro, state that in some regions the level and nature of Persecution, is arguably coming close to meeting the International definition of Genocide, according to the Genocide Convention, adopted by the United Nations.
In South Africa, minority groups are particularly targeted, by hate crime and economic discrimination, encouraged by political leaders with communist ideologies, leading to large scale hardship and involuntary displacement of Christians.
Despite a mountain of evidence – South Africa is not even mentioned in the Bishop’s report.
The White Cross Monument serves as real world evidence of Christian Persecution in South Africa and exhibit the Systematic Genocide of a Christian Minority, while the world watch in silence.
