  Riebeeck Wes
by mvtouring

Riebeek Wes is situated 4km from Riebeek Kasteel on the R311 in the direction of Moorreesburg and is closely linked with Riebeek Kasteel. Riebeek Wes, like Riebeek Kasteel used to be a district of the Swartland congregation of the Dutch Reformed Church at Malmesbury, but later became independent. Riebeek Wes is noted for the fact that two of South Africa's major political figures were born here. General Smuts was born on the farm Bovenplaas in the 1870 and Dr DF Malan on the farm Allesverloren.
