Jopie Fourie sluit na die oorlog aan by die Rebellie teen Louis Botha om SWA binne te val. Genl Smuts weier om petisies vir begenadiging te ontvang vir sy teregstelling. Hy sterf voor vuurpeleton 20/12/1914. Die volgende aanhaling van Jopie "Ek kan nie insien waarom ons vir Engeland se eer moet veg nie. Wanneer ons die moord van Slagtersnek nagaan en dink aan die 30 000 vroue en kinders wat vermoor is, sien ek nie waarom ek Engeland moet help om sy eer omhoog te hou nie."
