Siener Van Rensburg Religious Mystic or Nelson Mandela Media Myth

Siener van Rensburg, a Boere farmer born in 1864 grew to prominence as a religious mystic and years after his death would become firmly entwined with Nelson Mandela and be turned into a media myth. Van Rensburg died in 1926 and the Afrikaner cattle herder belonged to a religious sect that specialized in “visions.” “Siener” became the nickname and title of the man christened Nicolaas Pieter Johannes Janse van Rensburg.
