His/Her Life :
Du Toit, a prolific
author, wrote the first Afrikaans history book and as an Afrikaner nationalist
he became one of the founders of the Afrikaans language movement. In a series
of articles published in Die Afrikaanse Patriot, he pushed for the formation
of a cultural and political organisation that became known as the Afrikaner
Bond. However his close friendship with Rhodes soon became controversial
and he was stuck off the rolls of the Bond.
