Afrikaner Nationalist Town of Orania Continues to Expand

The remarkable Afrikaner nationalist settlement of Orania in South Africa continues to expand and will soon have the region’s leading shopping center, doctor’s surgery, dentist, and eye specialist—and there is no truth to an internet-based rumor that the town has been outlawed, according to an official spokesman.

The claim that the town has been “outlawed” was started on a blog called the “Diversity Times”—which said that a South African Supreme Court ruling had ordered the town to admit black residents.

“There has been no such court case, and no such ruling,” an Orania spokesman responded on Facebook. “The story is a total fabrication,” he continued, adding that there was in any event no “rule” in Orania about who could live there.

Furthermore, he said, it is illegal in terms of the South African constitution to have any sort of racial segregation, and the town adheres to the law of the land—meaning that there would never have been any basis for such a court case in the first place.

“The story is a malicious lie, put around by someone who seeks to undermine the progress Orania has recently made in becoming the beacon for Afrikaner survival,” the spokesman added.

Recent advances in the town, located in the center of South Africa in the Northern Cape, include the construction of the region’s first new shopping center, the creation of a doctor’s surgery, dentist practice, and optometrist for the growing number of residents of the town.

There are officially over 1,000 permanent residents in the town, although it continues to grow by a few dozen each month as increasing numbers of Afrikaners realize that Orania offers the only viable alternative to maintain their identity and culture in the face of mass demographic swamping.



Orania has grown dramatically over the last ten years, by more than 72 percent, and this exponential growth continues, according to the movement’s official blog.

“Orania’s growth is almost completely due to new arrivals, and not by natural reproduction, as the birth and death figures are relatively balanced. As far as the age spread goes, Orania looks very healthy,” the blog continued.

“There are enough children, but the largest group of people is to be found in the economically active ages of between 20 and 60. There are of course also elderly people present, but contrary to the outside perception, they are a small percentage when compared to the age profile of Afrikaners in general, or with other Western nations.”

The Orania blog added that there are more men than women—60 percent to 40 percent—which it says, is “not unusual for a pioneer community and a town whose core industries are agriculture and construction. As the service industries continue to grow, the gender balance will correct itself.”

As far as the surrounding area goes, the Orania blog pointed out, the demographics of the nearby farms are increasingly better due to the continuing process of urbanization which affects the colored population as well, as “mechanization has decreased the need for farm laborers.”

Nonetheless, the Orania blog adds, the demographics mean that the strategy of the Orania Movement must remain focused on building Orania into a small city, rather than trying to take over towns in the region. In this regard, the blog points out, the nearest small town of Strydenburg needs at least 3,000 Afrikaners in order to form a majority there.

“The ongoing purchase of farms is a strategy which is well worthwhile as they increasingly become depopulated and food security becomes an ever-more important issue,” the blog says, concluding by adding that Orania “already owns a large number of surrounding farms.”

A shortage of rental housing in Orania—caused by the dramatic growth in the town’s residents—has created an opportunity for developers, as can be seen in this range of ultra-modern houses being built in the Robyn Lane part of the town.

  1. Even if they, the ANC regime and its black supremacists wanted to outlaw the town, they can’t, it does not belong to the state anymore as it was bought from the government with private funds. Frankly, they should put up a sign stating “all rights reserved” at the entrance to this private piece of land. I’m an Afrikaner currently residing in Johannesburg South Africa (one of the crime capitals of the world) and I would move there in a blink of an eye if I had the funds. Sick of the crime, grime and filth that loiter in the streets like the walking dead.

    1. I don’t believe so, despite what liberal media says it is not a white-only-town it is an afrikaner-only-town. Just so happens that all afrikaners are white, but not all whites are afrikaner.

      1. I can understand that. The place wouldn’t be big enough to accommodate all those whites who are pig sick of the dross loitering in our streets in Europe and looking for somewhere to go.

    2. what ff said is not really right. they accept white people from different nationalities as well. there are for example about 20 germans living in orania, some born in south africa and some came later. only if you are english then you will most probably face some difficulties to settle in orania because the english are not very popular within the afrikaaner community. the main problem for white foreigners to settle in orania is the immigration law of south africa because orania got autonomous status but is still under the official south african law. that means a white man from whatever country have to apply for resident permitt in south africa to be able to settle permanent in orania and there the chances are almost 0, because to get a resident permitt for south africa as a white under the age of 60 or 70 years is almost impossible ourdays. even to get married to a local white woman will not ensure that a resident permitt gets granted. the barriers to get a resident permitt for south africa ourdays for white people are very high. if we would have the same standarts when it comes to immigration laws in europe like they have now in south africa then we would most probably loose 99 percent of the foreigners in europe over night. hope that information helped.God bless

  2. At some point, an army will have to be created. Once they see orania flourish, they will stop at nothing to get it and the white communists will assist in every way possible just like when they ended apartheid. Growing at 10-20%/year should put them at 10,000 in about 5-7 years and it can grow rapidly from there. Problem will be space as you can’t get too close to the invaders.

    1. Kevin, you’re right about defense, a very important security measure. Just one thing though, you mentioned white communists, they were Jews, not white!

        1. Yes. We had a couple of Jews that supported the struggle against their own color, against apartheid. However, Israel in general gave ample support to the apartheid government and so did some Arab countries in their buying power in South African armament during those times. What it boils down to is that white people, disguised as Jews, and like many other whites across the globe were gaining from apartheid, but in the shadows ensuring its downfall for greater gains.

  3. Darn white people goin’ around creating crops, fields of trees, growin’ food and making the desert bloom. Next thing ya know they’ll wanna be left alone to make a future for themselves, maybe even launch rockets to the stars…. darn those white Afrikaner people.

    1. Yeah dman us whities, for being what er are. Thinking forward and devising a better existence and manipulating reality toa point whre it benefits all. Damn those white people for what they represent. Shyte, I should be ashamed that I’m white, hell, I should be ashamed of being Afrikaans. Like the Germans I should cower at any opportunity to show national unity, after all, we were the architects of “apartheid” even if we just followed on the footsteps of of our European brothers in “segregational” law and practice. Frankly, I should slit my throagt in shame!? F that!!!

  4. Looking at how 350 years of progress are being broken down by people that claim every inch of South Africa , we should feel unease at building our town to such a high model of urban perfection . We are aware of the unveiled threats and jealousy but our Afrikaner blood and inner strength will prevail and pull us through. Henni – Orania home owner

  5. The Ants went ahead and created their homes and food for winter! The locusts [ Sprinkane ] at that time were just lying around and loafing, stealing e.t.c. Come winter the Springkane were getting hungry and went to the Ants for food! The Ants refused. The Springkane went on the rampage shouting and screaming at the world citing Racist, Apartheid, Anti-liberal, No human Rights!! Blerry Ants and fell on them killing the Ants!

  6. And if they start allowing Black Africans into their community, they’ll see a drop in intelligence and safety along with rising crime rates of rape, murder, and theft. Keep it a white community and they’ll live in peace while their children are able to attend school and graduate with a good amount of intelligence. Call me “racist”, but everyone knows that any black across the globe cannot evolve to become decent citizens of society.

  7. Greetings to you courageous people , I admire you! but I had to connect myself o my home computer since at wrk (French govenment administration ) your webpage is censored. I’ll visit SA next winter, for the first time.

  8. Orania has a right to exist just as Israel does. Sometimes when a minority is facing grave oppression and genocide, it is only in the interest of their very survival to create a State for their own people.
