South Africa’s Secret Plan to Sterilize Blacks Through Vaccines


By Brandon Turbeville

South Africa’s apartheid system will always be known for the tragic example of the institutionalized racism that it was as well as for all of the horrific acts of oppression, violence and dehumanization it produced. Much of what took place under the system will never be revealed as both its victims and perpetrators have taken the information to their graves. However, what is known already is more than enough to prove that such a system must never be instituted again.

A number of years after the end of the apartheid system in South Africa, a Truth and Reconciliation Committee was established to reveal the wrongs that had been committed against the people of South Africa and to begin the process of healing and reconciliation between the parties. Yet even during the process of “uncovering” many of the atrocities committed against black South Africans some of that information has been largely ignored throughout the decades after the system ended; most notably, a system of attempted genocide of black South Africans by means of a national vaccine program.

Some of that information came to light in January 1997 when Wouter Basson was finally arrested by South African authorities. A cardiologist by trade Basson was also the head of Project Coast, South Africa’s secret chemical and biological warfare program.When searching his car, hundreds of secret documents were found that revealed the program’s covert operations including connections, contacts, and murder weapons.

As Jerome Amir Singh wrote in his article for Endeavor, entitled “Project Coast: Eugenics in Apartheid South Africa,

The following year, with Basson and others giving evidence before the country’s landmark Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), the details of Project Coast began to emerge: poisoned umbrellas, screwdrivers and secret stockpiles of lethal bacteria, chemicals and drugs had been produced and weaponized for use against enemies of the apartheid government [2]. Far less attention has been paid to allegations of a eugenic thrust to the program.

During the course of the Truth and Reconciliation hearings, a number of shocking allegation were made regarding the eugenic-based agenda of the South African authorities connected to Project Coast. A number of these claims were made by Dr. Adriaan Goosen, founder of the front company Roodeplaat Research Laboratory, a front company for the project.

According to Goosen, research at RRL was focused on developing and “bacterial agent that would selectively kill black people.” Goosen stated that the project and the program had been described by South Africa’s then Surgeon General, Dr. Neil Knoble, as “the most important project for the country.”

Goosen himself had plenty of faith in the ability to create this type of weapon. In fact, he even claimed that an unknown European scientist had already developed a strain of bacteria capable of “only affecting, making sick, and killing pigmented people” as far back as the early 1980s.

“Under oath, Goosen went on to state that the government could have used such a weapon as a ‘negotiation back-up’ (to stay in power) and to ‘maintain peace’ (between local whites and blacks),” writes Singh.

Goosen claimed that the plans to connect with the European scientist were eventually abandoned for security reasons, but that South African scientists continued to work on the project. Goosen also stated that Project Coast was far down the road in creating an anti-fertility weapon that would be used to selectively target the black majority.

The delivery mechanism?

A vaccine.

Goosen staetd that one of the most important aspects of the anti-fertility vaccine was that it would not be detectable and even if it was detected it would not be able to be traced back to “clandestine application.” Goosen stated he was convinced that the production of this type of drug was “definitely possible” after an extensive literature search.

Goosen was backed up in his claims by another Project Coast scientist, Dr. Schalk van Rensburg, who confirmed that the development of an anti-fertility vaccine was indeed a major goal of the program and even made up 18% of all RRL projects. Goosen fingered Basson as the leader and creator of the eugenics-based CBW program.

You can’t handle the truth about vaccines (Ad)

Basson of course argued that this type of vaccine should be designed to prevent the pregnancy of female soldiers and to keep down the population in refugee camps. But van Rensburg revealed otherwise and confirmed what Goosen claims in terms of the real targets of the vaccine.

Singh writes,

Although van Rensburg testified that Blacks were physiologically, biochemically and endocrinologically identical to Whites so it would not be possible to develop a vaccine that worked on one ethnic group and not the other [25], it might be possible to skew the delivery of the vaccine along racial lines. He further testified that while he had warned that such a vaccine could not be racially based, covertly administered and would be reversible, Basson had insisted the laboratory proceed with the research [26].

More specifically, it appears that the Project Coast anti-fertility vaccine was directed largely at women, although some suggestions were that the vaccine would work better in men.

Singh writes,

There also seems to have been a discussion about the most appropriate strategy for such a vaccine. Since there were certain antigens found only on sperm, it would be easier to make males sterile, argued van Rensburg [27]. Basson, however, was keener to develop a female infertility vaccine, he told the commission. However, he stated that although they worked toward this aim, the leadership of Project Coast.

The TRC also heard from Dr Jan Lourens, the head of Protechnik (another Project Coast front organization), who testified that before starting the company, he had designed equipment for animal experiments taking place at RRL. These included a ‘restraint chair’ into which baboons were strapped for experiments, a transparent ‘gas chamber’ into which the chair and baboon were fitted for tests and a ‘stimulator and extractor’ to obtain semen from baboons [22]. Lourens named Dr Riana Borman as the scientist in charge of the baboon experiments ‘to control virility and fertility’ with a view to reducing the birth rate among Blacks [22].

For his part, Basson denied working on any such project. Even more so, Basson denied that any such science existed and was even possible. Still, after having researched the program in depth, Singh comes to a different conclusion which tends to back up the claims made by Goosen and van Rensburg.

As Singh writes,

While Basson may have been technically correct in dismissing the scientific and technical validity of successfully pursuing an ‘infertility vaccine’ the testimony of Goosen, van Rensburg and Lourens strongly suggests that malevolent and potentially genocidal motives were behind some of Project Coast’s operations.

Basson’s statement that such science is not possible is in fact quite laughable. Published studies reveal even in the late 1980s that successful anti-fertility vaccines were being developed. What is also laughable if it were not so tragic is the fact that anyone who suggested that the South African government was developing such a thing as an anti-fertility vaccine to target the general population would have been dismissed as a paranoid conspiracy theorist.

Singh’s article, however, and the testimony of the South African scientists reveal that not only was it possible but that it actually existed. For that reason, one must ask why we are to believe that we are currently outside of history and why such a program with all the technological developments that have occurred since the early 1980s and world governments’ increased focus on population reduction – particularly in the Third World – that such a program does not exist currently.

Remember, it was not so far back in history that the now infamous think-tank, Project for a New American Century stated that “advanced forms of biological warfare that can ‘target’ specific genotypes, may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool.” (source)

One can also not forget the number of reports coming out of places like Africa and the Third World detailing mass sterilizations at the hands of vaccines. No doubt, the victims, and those reporting on the sterilizations are labeled paranoid conspiracy theorists with an extra insult of anti-science thrown in for the mix. Yet the proverbial egg is on the proverbial faces of those who mock and ignore claims of covert sterilization programs and population reduction initiatives, particularly in the Third World. A detailed study of what is currently happening in Africa and much of the rest of the third world (as well as the first) is not possible in this article. But if skeptics are looking for capability, they need look no further than Singh’s article and the testimony of Goosen and Van Rensburg. If they are looking for motive, they can look in the same place. If precedent is what they are seeking, Singh’s article has that, too. If evidence for a program currently under way is what they are searching for then the evidence is at their fingertips.

    The Black population in south Africa grew from 7.8 million in 1946, to 29 million in 1991, far exceeding growth in the white and other-race -populations.

    Unemployment was far, far lower than today. The South African rand was stronger than the US Dollar. It currently stands at R15.00 to the USA dollar.

    South Africa’s black people were better educated, enjoyed better health and earned more than blacks in any other country in Africa. Nelson Mandela earned a legal degree.

    During apartheid, South Africa delivered more black doctors, teachers and other professional than the aggregated total of all other countries in Africa.

    Thousands of schools were built. I challenge anyone to identify a single educational institution erected since 1994.

    Since 1994, approximately 2 million white people have left South Africa, most of them professionals seeking a reasonable life in a secure environment.

    Violent deaths in South Africa have been in the region of 25 000 per annum, since 1994. South Africa loses more people yearly than the USA lost in armed combat during the entire gulf-wars period, i.e. since 1991.

    The country is is a complete shambles. Elections are no more than a crude racial sensus across the 10 or so black ethnic groups.

    The deterioration in infrastructure is marked. In South Africa there is now socalled ‘load shedding’, i.e. electricity is only available in certain areas at certain times of the day. This is due to simple neglect and lack of maintenance.

    Up until 2000, South African tertiary education was well received by the international community. At this time, a medical doctor, who qualified after 2000, has to sit an exam towards licensure.

    If the South African had followed the Australian or American model, like the native indians and Australian aborigines, the blacks would have been a negligible population today.

    The life expectancy in South is now less than 60, where 20 years ago, it was on the same level as any country in Europe.

    It seems as if SA’s glorious democracy is rapidly decaying, must like occured in Zimbabwe under Bob Mugabe (knighted, with the honour later withdrawn). By the way, Bob’s vice president is Joyce Muburu, affectionately referred to as ‘Spillblood’.

    The number of African coup d’etats since the middle of the previous century is in the hundreds. With it, we have seen one dictatorship after the other and genocide of any specific group considered to be a threat or in opposition to current political power.

    This list of deteriorations is endless. The impact on health is incalculable.

    A vaccination program would be unnecessary. South Africa doesn’t have sufficient skill left to deploy such a program, anyway.

    However, apartheid was a stupid system. You cannot include someone economically, but exclude them politically.

    Why is segregation good for Whites but bad for blacks?

  • Monika Vermeulen

    How dare you use South African history in your distorted article. You spit in the face of those who died to end apartheid. You should be ashamed. You have no right to distort our history.

  • LeAnn Addleman

    I’ve known about the “secret plan” to sterilize people in 3rd world countries for 20+ years. I guess it’s not really a secret anymore. With the newest zika virus scare, which is vaccine induced, another vaccine is just about ready to do more damage.

  • Badger Badgerism

    they need to be sterilized…of course ALL the WHITE WOMEN WILL BE DISAPPOINTED THEY CANT BE PREGNANT BY BLACK

  • Johann Schutte

    The number of people dead as a result of ritual circumcision during initiation to ‘manhood’ far exceeds the number of deaths ascribed to apartheid.

    How many do you think actually ‘died to end of apartheid’?

    Maybe your own view of SA history is distorted, which wouldn’t be surprising at all, given the nonsense that current (revised) history books and the media spew on the matter.

  • Johann Schutte

    We don’t have to sterilize anybody.

    Just withdraw the enormous flow of ‘aid’ to Africa, to which Dambisa Moyo correctly refers to as ‘dead aid’ in her books.

    Not only will this correct the demographics, but will also improve the lot of the African in very real terms, as Dambisa eloquently argues in her well researched books.

    The problem is the sentimental whites, who would rather see Ethiopia grow from a 35 million hunger problem to a 75 million one by infusing it with limitless money, thus creating a passive community that invests too much energy in procreation.

    Wena Johann Schutte uya nya.You are stuck in the past and you don’t deserve to be a South African.

  • Sbu mahamba

    You can also leave, we don’t need racist like you in South Africa.Sies jou …

  • Sbu mahamba

    Another stupid racist. We should have driven you back to the sea.I am happy not all whites are racist like you guys.

  • BlackJack77

    No surprise. South Africa has long been run by the Oppenheimer family. Did you know that before Mandela came to power the Oppenheimers owned all the gold and diamond mines in South Africa and 80% of the stock on the Pretoria stock exchange- and it was exactly the same afterwards!!

    Just change the front man from a white man to a black man and you fool them every time!! Look at how well it worked in America!! Change, hope, beLIEve. The Oppenheimers, of course, are fronts for their good buddies the Rothschilds whose love of depopulation is well known.

    Johann Schutte regularly haunts news sites with views that uphold the SA shadow government’s agenda of manipulative attempts to maintain the ‘divide and rule’ setup, in the collective public mind.
    His enslavement to their objectives scream at us again through all the points he made here, designed to promote life under visible apartheid as being better. …for blacks. It’s also very helpful in trying to convince foreigners why apartheid was justified. And why ‘de-mock-racy’ is failing, now that apartheid’s no longer institutionalised law.

    To the contrary:
    Racism is alive and well in a country where the majority of the minority whites STILL enjoy economic, social, educational and material privilege while the majority of the majority blacks remain as they did then – in economic, social, educational and material disadvantage. Almost exactly the same as when I was growing up in the 70’s.

    Now, added to the mix and to confuse, but mostly to continue the same ‘divide and rule’ scenario, we have all sorts of additional psy op shams played on the public. The latest is the so-called ‘Stop Racism’ campaign, Articles commissioned here have been peculiarly twisted to get the black person to examine him/herself, identity, values, etc. Because now it’s all about proving that black resentment and mistrust and confronting of racist thought is actually…wait for it…being racist! The purpose? Being to justifiably ignore the crucially-required examination by whites of themselves; sending them yet another message that they’re not responsible – for racist thought/feelling then and now.

    For the majority of Black SA, there is no freedom, with the real unemployment figures in the country being +60% , rather than the bandied about 25%. But this is hardly unusual in yet another country’s figures manipulated by the global psychopaths who have a (hidden) hand here too in practically every money-making industry…but that’s another story.

  • SteveQuaid

    Well, considering all the atrocities the blacks savagely commit against the white minority in south africa, they were really planning ahead. Too bad it didn’t work out.
