    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.

Did we mention it was an all-day affair? Once the funeral service was over, the circus moved out to the farm where Eugene Terre'Blanche lived, died, and now lies buried. This is what it looked like.

Photos by Toby Shapshak, Kevin Bloom and Phillip de Wet.

For more images from the Eugene Terre'Blanche funeral, see part one of this series (on the church service) or our collection of videos from the day. You may also be interested in our photo reportage of events outside the court when the suspects in the murder of Terre'Blanche first appeared, and our video of that day, when AWB supporters and black community members very nearly came to blows.
