    Brkic is the founder and editor of The Daily Maverick.

    He has edited magazines on business and politics, technology, and wildlife. He has also published fiction and non-fiction books, most of them in Serbian. Though he has never pretended to be a reporter, his wide knowledge of politics (especially in America), combined with his experiences in a disintegrating Yugoslavia, gives him an unusual outlook on events in South Africa.

    Despite the vowel-poor surname, he tells anyone who asks that he hails from Hyde Park, Johannesburg, having spent most of his adult life in South Africa.

Ventersdorp on the day of the Eugene Terre'Blanche funeral, through the lenses of our reporters on the spot.

 At the church, on the outskirts of town.

And then the rain came down.

While the miles-long convoy wound its way past the township on its way to the farm, for the burial.
