The Leader His Driver and The Drivers Wife (1991)

Published on 13 Jan 2022 / In Documentaries

⁣The Leader, His Driver and the Driver's Wife is a 1991 British feature-length documentary film set during the final days of the apartheid regime in South Africa, particularly centring on Eugène Terre'Blanche, founder and leader of the far-right Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging.
The film was directed by Nick Broomfield and released in 1991.

It received an average of 2.3 million viewers during its screening on Channel 4. A year later it was the subject of legal action brought by the journalist, Jani Allan, in what has been described as "the libel case of the summer". In 2006, Broomfield released a follow-up, His Big White Self.

Throughout the film, Broomfield attempts to set up an interview with Terre'Blanche, who stubbornly breaks all of the plans he makes with him.

For the majority of the film where Broomfield is unable to get an interview with the leader himself, his attention is drawn to the driver and his wife (JP and Anita Meyer), hence the title.

cranky leader knows they are fighting a losing battle, too many niggers too few boer, and that no one is coming to save them, the doc producer does not tell the story that the blacks are inherently violent and will be slaughtering the whites with machetes in a few years time.
