This Day in History: Sep 30, 1931: Start of "Die Voortrekkers" youth movement for Afrikaners in Bloemfontein, South Africa.

Die seun, Martinus Wessels Pretorius, stig Pretoria vernoem na sy pa, Andries Wilhelmus Jacobus Pretorius. En in die Ou Kerkhof van die einste Pretoria—wat dekades later die administratiewe hoofstad van ’n verenigde Suid-Afrika sal word—sal Andries Pretorius se stoflike oorskot in 1891 met groot eerbetoon herbegrawe word…
