Genocide Solutions – Seminar for target-population


Solutions to certain aspects of the genocide, the systemic mass-slaughter of the white population in South Africa – By Pieter Oosthuizen

A Line in the Sand Seminar : Combating violent aspects of a genocide

Solutions to certain aspects of the genocide, the systemic mass-slaughter of the white population in South Africa.

“In South Africa, the white population have been brainwashed into a permanent acceptance of their status as victims in the face of daily brutalities committed against them by certain segments of the population that acts out the role of cultural-marxism against innocent victims; – the whites.

The solution is difficult to implement in a country where the state controls the mass media like radio and television networks, and where the rest of the media are acting as proxy-agents for the government.

However the steps into effectively combating their status as victims are in short the following:

  • Becoming educated on the phenomenon of genocide in the modern era. In this regard, many books and articles, including videos are available on the website – www.neo-genocide.com/farmitracker/reports
  • Secondly before undergoing any training in fire-arms or martial arts, the target population should first undergo training in The Basic Principles of Personal Security.
  • As a result of the sensitivity of this program of combating genocide, the real solutions are only presented in a seminar to audiences that were developed for specific audiences; including farmers, business owners and private individuals from the victim-group.
  • Therefore the seminar, “A Line in the Sand: has been developed that includes: Background on aspects that comprise a genocide; Training on aspects of personal security; Handling violent aspects of the genocide- a legal perspective; A strategy that could maybe effectively combat any enemy actions.

The days of relatively cheap food in SA may be over forever


The days of relatively cheap South African food may be over forever. A pineapple grown in South Africa ‘s sub-tropical KwaZulu/Natal that sells for R5,99 (US S0.66) in a Pretoria supermarket hundreds of kilometers away nets very little for the grower. On average farmers receive anything from 30% and lower for their products. (In the case of wine, the net profit amounts to only R0,54c per bottle selling at R29,99!).

The shock announcement by the Minister of Labor that a minimum farm worker wage of R105 (US$12) per day will come into force on March 1 has set off a series of events that could change South Africa forever. Agriculture has shed hundreds of thousands of jobs since minimum wages were introduced in 2000. Now retrenc hm ents of farm workers will increase dramatically, but in fact, farmers have been abandoning labor-intensive farming for some time, and mechanization has grown.

Vegetable and fruit farming is still vulnerable because it is labor-intensive, but more than 45% of the total wine crop in the Western Cape is being harvested mechanically. The industry has already shed about 30% of jobs, according to Rico Basson, executive director of Vin Pro. The wine industry employs more than 24 000 permanent employees and over 6 000 seasonal workers. In 2011, government earned over R4 billion in excise and VAT income on wine and brandy sales, more than the R3,6 billion the producers earned. Yet government simply looked on when this golden goose was set upon in recent violence in the area.

The hasty minimum wage increase was the knee-jerk reaction of a government on its back foot, unable to control the mindless violence and mayhem in South Africa ‘s prime wine and table grape agricultural areas. The country was forced to watch as thousands roamed the streets and farms, leaving destruction in their wake. International confidence in South Africa as a reliable supplier has been shattered, while trust on all sides within the country has dipped. South Africa ‘s farmers were on notice that they were on its own in the face of the sometimes K hm er Rouge-type savagery around them.

WINE AND GRAPES

The Hex River Valley ‘s table grape industry’s 180 or so farms employ about 8 000 permanent workers and usually another 6 000 seasonal workers. In the light of the government’s injudicious minimum farm worker wage increase, these farmers say they can reduce their staff by 20% virtually immediately. Production has been badly affected by the strikes – farms in the De Doorns area have only packed about 600 000 cartons of table grapes this season compared to one million normally.

The violence that accompanied the strikes and protests has sullied farmer/staff relations. Vines were burnt, property and cars destroyed and roads blocked with burning tires. More than 270 people were arrested for public violence, two people died and about R100 million in damages was said to have resulted when the vineyards were set alight. Some workers were threatened with death unless they joined the strike.

CONSUMER WILL PAY

Is the consumer prepared to pay for the hefty food price increases that will result from the recent strikes and protests? The consumer brought the ANC to power twenty years ago, and the chickens have come home to roost. Those who whipped up protestors to demand wage increases must realize they have neither the power nor the wherewithal to feed South Africa . Commercial farming in South Africa is in the main market-related, and the government cannot force farmers to commit suicide. Who will feed South Africa if commercial farming collapses?

South Africa’s Milk Producers Organization says milk prices would need to rise by “at least 14%” to prevent more dairy farmers from leaving the industry. While farmers are paid between R2,75 and R3,50 per liter of milk, they need R4 to make a profit. South Africa had about 30 000 dairy farmers in the 1980′s and has around 2 300 now. Dairy producers in the Free State say that apart from the 52% hike in the cost of labor, veterinary services have risen 15% and energy costs 16%. And in North West province, a strike that started on December 3 last year at the Dairybelle commercial dairy is still not resolved. There has been violence and intimidation and a senior official says the damage to property is estimated to be R10 million Company vehicles were attacked with stones and petrol bombs, this despite a court order in place to protect company property.

The fight has been about wages. Clearly wages are low, but most farmers would pay more if they could afford it. Given the prices they receive for their produce, a radical re-alignment must take place with regard to what costs are involved between what the farmer receives and the price charged by the retailer. Farmers are squeezed from all directions, TAU SA president Louis Meintjes told Business Day. The cost of electricity, diesel, numerous taxes, feed stock and now wages means that retrenc hm ent is the only way to survive. Many farmers run at a loss because of input costs which were higher over the past ten years than profits. Monthly minimum farm wages rose 51,3% between 2006 and 2011.

In addition, the sectoral minimum wage determination now in place was valid for three years from one year ago. This figure has now been arbitrarily upgraded by more than 50% by the Minister of Labor in response to terror and intimidation on the streets. Will she and her government succumb to more demands in the future, at the whim of the radicals and the political opportunists? At the end of January 2013, the Rev. Nosey Pieterse, a self-appointed leader of the protesters, is reported to have declared the government must come up with “something better than R105 per day. We have been able to achieve that several times, without even a push”.

Chairperson of the Hex River Valley Table Grape Association Michael Laubscher says farmers in the area pay wages they can afford. Others pay what they can’t afford: some made a R5 loss on each 4,5 kg carton of grapes during last season. And what do the banks say? Ernst Janovsky, head of agribusiness at ABSA bank says that at this time of the year, farmers are “fully stretched” as they have incurred all of their costs and will only receive income a few months after they have delivered their crops.

SA Table Grape Industry chairman Johan van Niekerk confirmed that at this stage of the season, it would be very difficult for the majority of farmers to raise the cash needed to meet the increased wage now made law by the Minister. At the beginning of the season most of the farmers arranged funding from their banks on the assumption that they will be paying seasonal workers around R70 a day. “Even if the growers in De Doorns wanted to pay R110 a day, their bankers probably wouldn’t let them,” said van Niekerk. At the moment, labor accounts for 40% of input costs in the table grape industry.

WHO WERE THE INSTIGATORS?

The men responsible for inciting the strikes, protests and the resultant violence are Rev. Nosey Pieterse, Tony Ehrenreich and Marius Fransman.

In November 2012, TAU SA president Louis Meintjes wrote to the State President about the clear political agenda behind strikes and unrest already incipient in the Western Cape . TAU SA believed this would spread to the rest of the country, and informed the president that a political solution should be found for the unrest, rather than making amendments to the minimum agricultural wage. People were bussed in to the violence areas and went on the rampage.

“We believe this is for political purposes to destabilize the province because the ANC is not the ruling party in that province”, he said. The people are dissatisfied because promises have been made to the populace and are not kept. “Your government is just an onlooker to the immigration of people from neighboring countries who take job opportunities from South African citizens”, said Meintjes. The letter went unanswered.

The government did little as three men turned the Western Cape ‘s agricultural sector upside down. To add fuel to the fire, the Minister of Agriculture Ms. Tina Joemat-Pettersson encouraged the violence by telling protestors they would not be charged for their destructive activities.

TONY EHRENREICH is the Congress of SA Trade Unions (COSATU) Cape provincial secretary. TAU SA has now laid criminal charges with the police against him: he is reported to have threatened that farmers’ land would be taken away from them if they dismissed their workers. Last month, Ehrenreich threatened that a “war about land” would start soon. In a press release, he said he wanted “to ruin bad farmers” and that COSATU would “take action against farmers guilty of intimidation and discrimination”. He wants to change the agricultural sector “forever”, he says, and he gave notice that he would be “coordinating the mother of all strikes against bad farmers”.

THE REVEREND NOSEY PIETERSE is president of the Black Association of the Wine and Spirit Industry (BAWSI), formed in 1998 to “transform” the industry. He is a pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church and has been central to the De Doorns protests. He has been a fixture in the area for some time, purportedly acting on behalf of the workers (although only 6% of workers in the area are formally unionized). He has a mixed reputation.

In his hallmark Chairman Mao cap, he uses his sermons to rage against “the capitalist system” but like so many of his ilk, he is not averse to the perks of this system. At one stage, BAWSI was a well-funded non-profit organization receiving a generous stipend from the SA Wine Industry Trust (SAWIT), set up in 1999 to “support transformation” in the industry. Until it experienced financial problems in 2007, SAWIT was paying BAWSI R200 000 a month purportedly for “development projects”. When proof of these projects was demanded by some journalists, nothing came to light.

After losing the monthly stipend, BAWSI announced the sale of a black empowerment consortium which had bought shares in the liquor group KWV. Nobody knows what happened to the sale of the shares, if they were sold. (They are valued at around R56 million). Pieterse was made chairman of Lindiwe Wines, another empowerment wine label launched in 2003. This flopped, with debts of R5 million. Like so many others within the ruling classes who say they despise capitalism, Pieterse appears to be a master of the financial shake-down.

Pieterse has regularly called for a boycott of SA products unless a pay rise to R150 is awarded, and this call was repeated in overseas newspapers. The British newspaper The Guardian ran a poll asking readers “Will you boycott South African wines” and 59% of readers said they would. Wines South Africa responded to The Guardian by reminding them that the wine industry contributes an estimated R27 billion to the SA economy and employs 275 000 people. During the height of the unrest, Pieterse was seen distributing food parcels to the value of R10 million paid for by the Minister of Agriculture, using of course taxpayers’ money.

MARIUS FRANSMAN is the ANC’s Western Cape leader and an ANC deputy Minister. He refers to Tony Ehrenreich as “Comrade Tony”. According to the official opposition Democratic Alliance (DA) which controls the Western Cape, he is a racist who has already started his campaign for next year’s national elections: he wants to expose the DA for “favoring its rich white constituency” over poor black communities. He wants the ANC to develop “strong activist structures on the ground” and this is taking root. Blacks from the Eastern Cape have moved into virtually all Western Cape and Karoo towns, places where they have no historical presence and where there are no jobs. These towns have been traditional Coloured areas for centuries. Last year, Fransman’s ANC circulated a letter declaring it would make the Western Cape “ungovernable” and that agriculture would be used to start the campaign.

TAU SA COMMENT

* Some overseas television news programs referred to South African citizens’ “inequality” while filming the recent mayhem in the Western Cape . Geography and history have formed South Africa , and its diverse peoples have to live together, despite their huge cultural, economic and social differences. The living standards of Bangladeshis and Germans differ enormously, as do those of the Canadian Inuit Eskimos and Malaysians. These dissimilar peoples don’t live in the same country however. Talking about inequality as you report on the basic wage problems in South Africa is irrelevant. Market forces dictate wages, and the inequality within South African society is not the fault of the commercial farming sector.

* Will emerging black farmers be able to afford the new wage determination, given their present struggle in an unfriendly agricultural climate? Given that the hundreds of farms already handed over to blacks under the government’s land redistribution program now lie fallow, how will the continuation of this program fare under even more onerous conditions including the government’s new minimum wage?

* Officially every worker in South Africa supports three people. This figure is greater in the rural, poorer areas: thus thousands of people losing jobs means millions of people going hungry. A minimum wage is a fixed element in a mosaic of market-related forces, some beyond the control of the agricultural industry. Wages should be market related. If someone wants to work for R50 a day, then he should have the right to do so. There is no such thing as slave labor on South Africa ‘s commercial farms – workers can leave anytime they want. Rural towns are full of men standing around looking for work. They beg passing farmers for a job. They are hungry and they cannot feed their families and they will work for much less than the minimum wage. But if farmers are found employing these men, they are fined. So nobody wins.

* Why should three rabble rousers be allowed free reign to sow destruction in a crucial South African industry? And why do farmers’ groups give these men money and status with empowerment deals and chairmanships of show organizations simply because they demanded it? Look what they have wrought because they have the status and the funds to support their anti-farming rabble rousing. Do farmers’ groups believe that by placating people like these they will be kept “on side”? Nothing could be further from the truth, and the recent unrest proves that.

* The government is antagonistic towards and non-supportive of commercial farmers. The agricultural control councils which regulated prices were abandoned in a wave of let’s-get-rid-of-the-past moves when the ANC came into power. South African farmers compete in international markets at a severe disadvantage: farmers in the EU for example are heavily subsidized, and it will now be harder to sell South African agricultural products. Irreparable damage has been done to Brand SA, says one newspaper headline. Our reputation for reliability, quality and a competitive price is on the line. The South African government doesn’t deserve its farming community, and many could well move to friendlier climes. Mozambique is being mooted as an alternative fruit and vegetable producing environment. Let Messrs. Ehrenreich, Pieterse and Fransman pay imported prices for their food.

* In the final analysis, the real power rests with the farmers. The government might be “in power” but it doesn’t have power. It cannot feed its population, it cannot create jobs for its followers. It cannot run a municipality, it cannot budget, it needs consultants to do the work its own appointees cannot do. It is helpless, hopeless and hapless in the face of this reality. It is parasitical, and it destroys and consumes, while others produce and create and innovate. And herein lies its Achilles Heel. The golden goose won’t live forever, and when the cupboard is bare, who will take the place of the country’s hard-working agricultural sector? Are there any other takers for this thankless job? We don’t think so!

ANC wil plaasgrond verder belas


Boere gaan ook op “onbenutte” grond belas word en buitelanders mag voortaan nie meer eiendom in Suid-Afrika besit nie.

Dít is van die finale resolusies oor landelike ontwikkeling en grondhervorming wat die ANC in Desember op sy nasionale kon­­fer­ensie in Mangaung aanvaar en pas bekend gemaak het.

Die resolusies bevestig opnuut die beleid van gewillige koper/verkoper moet vervang word deur ’n stelsel wat billik en regverdig is.

’n Grondoudit van staatsgrond wat al jare sloer, moet spoedig afgehandel word.

Daarna sal buitelanders grond in Suid-Afrika net op lang termyn kan huur.

Dr. Theo de Jager, Agri SA se vise-president, sê hulle is bekommerd oor die belasting van “oortollige” grond.

“Watter boer gebruik elke stukkie van sy plaas? Grond word geroteer vir aanplanting of weiding. Die regering kan nie vir ons definieer wat oortollige grond is nie.”

Oor buitelanders wat nie grond kan besit nie, sê De Jager ’n 2006-studie het gewys net 1% van plaasgrond behoort aan buitelanders.

Samuel Seeff, voorsitter van Seeff Eiendomme, sê dit is ’n mite dat buitelanders die duurste en beste eiendom in Suid-Afrika koop en besit.

“Net tussen 3% en 6% van alle residensiële eiendom in Suid-Afrika behoort aan buitelanders. Hulle dra by tot infrastruktuurontwikkeling en die meeste buitelanders koop eiendomme kontant, wat tot beleggingsvloei na Suid-Afrika bydra.”

Dawie Roodt van die Efficient-groep sê dit sal Suid-Afrika se beeld verder knou.

Farm murders in South Africa – CNN

Farm murders in South Africa - CNN

“Was the government right to stop prioritising farm security? According to the Report of the Committee of Inquiry, there were 6 122 farm attacks in the decade between 1991 and 2001, resulting in 1 254 murders. “

Extract from CNN website:

On the one hand there are those who argue that farmers are more at risk of being targeted by violent criminals than the average citizen. This includes those who represent organised agriculture.

Some go as far as claiming that there is a political motive behind these attacks, with the objective of forcing white farmers off the land. Indeed, people like Dr Gregory Stanton of Genocide Watch go even further and claim that the nature and extent of farm murders show worrying signs of genocide.

On the other hand, there are those who argue that the criminal victimisation of farmers is no different than that faced by South Africans in general.

The absence of proper statistics contributes to the confusion and lack of clarity on the issue. For example, the South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR), using statistics inter alia from the Transvaal Agricultural Union of South Africa (TAUSA), concluded in a press statement on 5 October 2012 that farmers were not uniquely vulnerable to armed attacks when compared to the general population.

However, a week later on 11 October, the SAIRR announced that on the basis of new information received it was prepared to concede that farmers (exclusive of their families and workers) were ‘twice as likely’ to be murdered in South Africa than ordinary citizens.

Back in 1997, the South African Government used to believe that farmers were ‘uniquely’ targeted for violent and murderous attacks.

Given that farms play a crucial role in ensuring the country’s food security, in 1997 the Minister of Safety and Security, Sydney Mufamadi, called for a joint task team comprising members of the South African Police Service (SAPS), the South African National Defence Force (SANDF) and organised agriculture to develop a plan to improve security on farms.

This resulted in what became known as the Rural Protection Plan (RPP) in the same year. In 1999, a Joint Operational and Intelligence Structure (JOINTS) Priority Committee on Rural Safety chaired by a senior police officer with the rank of Major General was established to ensure that rural safety was managed as a national security priority.

The seriousness of the situation caused the SAPS to include figures for farm attacks and murders in its annual reports from 2001/02 to 2006/07. In 2001, the Minister of Police directed the SAPS National Commissioner to establish a Committee of Inquiry into farm attacks.

In 2003, the Committee published its findings that, among others, 89,3% of the attacks against farms were primarily criminal in nature for the purposes of robbery, with no evidence being found to support allegations that there were political motives behind these crimes.

Then President Thabo Mbeki, without any consultation or prior warning, announced the closing down of the ‘commandos’, the cornerstone of the RPP. He stated that the SAPS would replace the commandos with an alternative system consisting of police reservists, crime combating units and sector policing.

The SAPS in its annual reports after 2006/07 stopped reporting on farm attacks and murders and a new Rural Safety Strategy (RSS) was adopted in 2011. The RSS is not focused on the security of farms, but is aimed at rural security in general. In essence this means that the government no longer regards farm security as a priority.

Was the government right to stop prioritising farm security? According to the Report of the Committee of Inquiry, there were 6 122 farm attacks in the decade between 1991 and 2001, resulting in 1 254 murders.

Belasting vir gegradueerdes – ANC


Die ANC het verlede jaar by sy verkiesingskonferensie in Mangaung ‘n resolusie aanvaar om ‘n belasting op gegradueerdes in te stel, het die Sowetan Donderdag berig.

Belasting vir gegradueerdes - ANC

Themba Masondo, sekretaris-generaal van die South African Students’ Congress (Sasco), wat deel was van die onderwyskommissie, het die ooreenkoms oor die belasting bevestig.

Afgevaardigdes in die onderwys- en gesondheidskommissie het besluit dat oorweging “gegee moet word aan ‘n belasting vir alle gegradueerdes van hoër onderwysinstellings”.

Inligting oor die veelbesproke belasting is vaag, en geen verduideliking is gegee oor wanneer dit geïmplenteer gaan word of die persentasie wat gehef sal word nie.

Themba Masondo, sekretaris-generaal van die South African Students’ Congress (Sasco), wat deel was van die onderwyskommissie, het die ooreenkoms oor die belasting bevestig. Hy het aan die koerant gesê Sasco is gekant daarteen.

“As ‘n organisasie het ons ‘n aantal kwessies geopper oor die belasting. Hulle is nie so duidelik oor hoe dit gaan werk nie.”

Masondo is egter ten gunste van ‘n algemene heffing, waar mense uit hoë inkomstegroepe meer betaal.

Luidens die ANC se resolusies is die doel van die belasting om die koffers van die Nasionale Studente Finansiële Hulpskema (NSFAS) aan te vul. Dié hulpskema sal na verwagting ‘n groot rol speel in die regering se planne om gratis opvoeding aan alle voorgraadse studente te bied.

Gratis opvoeding sal waarskynlik volgende jaar ingestel word.

Belasting kom dalk vir gegradueerdes

Let South Africans starve from hunger – Tony Ehrenreich


Every move that Tony Ehrenreich make will ultimately snowball down to consumer level – This is something that every South African needs to be aware of.

Let South Africans starve from hunger - Tony Ehrenreich

Jacob Zuma & Tony Ehrenreich – Cosatu will launch a campaign against retailer companies which it says pay farmers low amounts for the products produced on South African farms.

Cosatu’s Western Cape provincial secretary, Tony Ehrenreich’s, latest move:

The Congress of South African Trade Unions (Cosatu) in the Western Cape is planning another protest in the agricultural sector – but this time it is targeting major retailers in the province.

Cosatu will launch a campaign against retailer companies which it says pay farmers low amounts for the products produced on South African farms.

The protest is set to take place in three weeks’ time.

Cosatu’s provincial secretary Tony Ehrenreich says retailers are paying farmers extremely low prices for their products.

Ehrenreich says they have won their fight to ensure a higher daily wage for farmworkers and will now turn their attention to retailers.

“There’s needs to be a change in the pricing of agriculture products if we are to have a sustainable industry.”

On Monday, Labour Minister Mildred Oliphant announced a new minimum wage for farmworkers, increasing the amount from R69 per day to R105.

This followed several months of violent protests in several Western Cape towns.

Farmworkers were demanding improved living conditions and a daily wage of R150.

Ehrenreich says this is an ongoing campaign until the entire value chain in the agriculture sector is improved.

Vicious international battle over 68-karat diamond


SA regime now facing lawsuit over atrociously unhealthy, overcrowded conditions at Diepkloof trial-awaiting prison.

This article has been moved here >> Vicious international battle over 68-karat diamond

Hy is slagoffer van komplot, sê ‘diamantdief’


’n Beweerde bedrieër wat daarvan beskuldig word dat hy ’n kolossale Suid-Afrikaanse diamant ter waarde van R56 miljoen gesteel en in die VSA verkoop het, vertel nou dat hy deur ’n vriend en adviseur van pres. Jacob Zuma in ’n lokval gelei is.

Dennis van Kerrebroeck (33), wat Kanadese en Belgiese burgerskap het, word steeds in Johannesburg aangehou nadat hy glo ’n geel diamant van 143 karaat vasgelê en dit toe in New York se bekende Fifth Avenue verkwansel het.

Die gesogte edelsteen is nou die middelpunt van ’n strafsaak in Suid-Afrika én ’n regstryd in ’n Amerikaanse hof terwyl aanklaers in Suid-Afrika die diamant in die land probeer terugkry as ’n bewysstuk.

Die strafsaak hervat binnekort in die Johannesburgse handelshof. Van Kerrebroeck beweer hy was die slagoffer van ’n sameswering en dat die skuld op hom geplaas is om belastingbedrog te pleeg.

Hy sê Sandile (Gwabs) Zungu (45), een van die land se rykste en mees invloedryke sakelui, sit agter alles.

Zungu, oudhoof van Denel en direkteur van byna 100 maatskappye, is glo ’n sleutelfiguur in Zuma se binnekring.

Zungu sê Van Kerrebroeck is “’n vyand van die staat” wat hom “astronomiese bedrae geld” laat verloor het.

“Ons diamant is weg,” sê ­Zungu. “Tot vandag nog het ons nie ’n sent daarvoor gesien nie.”

Die diamant is in November 2008 deur die Jasper-mynmaatskappy, waar Zungu destyds ’n direkteur was, naby Hopetown in die Noord-Kaap ontgin.

Van Kerrebroeck wou eers self die diamant koop, maar kon nie en het gereël dat dit aan ’n Amerikaanse maatskappy verkoop word waarvan hy die alleen-eienaar was.

Hy het intussen glo vals dokumente aan die verkopers gegee en die diamant via Switserland na die VSA gesmokkel.

Die staat sê Van Kerrebroeck het die diamant onder die neuse van doeanepersoneel by die JF Kennedy-lughawe verwyder nadat hulle daarop beslag gelê het.

Hy het dit toe vir slegs R8 miljoen aan Taly Diamonds verkoop wat dit in ’n aantal kleiner stene gesny het. Die grootste daarvan is 68 karaat.

Die Amerikaanse owerhede het intussen daarop beslag gelê.

Van Kerrebroeck is vroeg verlede jaar in Sandton gearresteer en van diefstal en bedrog aangekla.

Hy het in sy borgtogaansoek skuld ontken en amptenare van Jasper van bedrog en geldwassery beskuldig.

Hy sê in sy verklaring David Griffiths, Jasper se hoof, moet aangekla word.

Beeld het korrespondensie gesien waarin Van Kerrebroeck beweer Griffiths se mede-direkteur by Jasper, Zungu, “sit agter alles”.

Africa Confidential en ander publikasies beskryf Zungu as ’n geldinsamelaar vir Zuma se regsaksies. Hy is ’n familievriend van die president.

“Die man is ’n skurk en ek is baie bly hy sit in die tronk,” sê Zungu. “Ek hoop hy bly daar vir ’n baie lang ruk.”

South Africa – A Modern Day Story of the Titanic


Living on a sinking ship:

South Africa - A Modern Day Story of the Titanic

South Africa – A Modern Day Story of the Titanic

My whole life I have moved around, from one part of our country to another, even from nation to nation in Africa. But, all of my life I have lived, learned and loved in Africa. I saw this great continent as my place of belonging, my place to rest my weary head. A land of brilliant sunshine, refreshing rains, cool oceans, tropical bliss, and wide open spaces.

I have loved the people of every colour, culture and tribe, believing that one day we would live together in harmony, despite our differences, all because we all love this land with such intensity and passion.

I learned of the many wars fought between settlers and locals, the different rule and reign of colonial nations, the slaves, the Voortrekkers, the armies, the Missionaries, all who had walked across these African plains, all who had come here out of love and hope, as well as greed and selfish gain. Our history is rich with struggle, yet all found their place under the African sun.

My hopes all started to trickle away as I learned in recent times that the hope I clung to was a dream, never a reality. This continent does not desire peace, or harmony, or unity. This continent and my nation South Africa desire hatred, murder, crime, greed and war.
This continent does not allow anyone to rest their weary heads and live and dream in peace and contentment.

Their desire for evil this outweighs the desire for good. The people full of bloodlust and selfish entitlement. Though Missionaries have brought the Gospel of Peace and Christianity been preached far and wide, this continent chooses the Evil One over The Prince of Peace.

We are 3rd Class Passengers of this ‘Vessel’:

  • Imagine realising that you, your children, born and bred of the soil and toil of your nation, are no longer allowed to live and prosper in the land of your birth.
  • Imagine knowing for a fact that every measure was being enforced to disenfranchise and dis-empower your people, your future and those of generations to come.
  • Imagine witnessing 1000′s of your people brutally robbed, tortured, maimed and murdered.
  • Imagine finding out that your chances of employment and your right to education was being stripped away, leaving your people destitute. Imagine reading about legislation passed that prevented any charitable or social welfare organisation assisting anyone who was left destitute or desperate.
  • Imagine seeing reports of your people’s children being statistically the highest target for child prostitution and slavery in the 21st Century. Worst of all, imagine the realisation that this is all at the hand of the government who rules your land, all their initiative and incentive, which they had decided that your people must either flee the land or face certain death.

And then to make it even more unbearable, finding out that the world thought that it was justice well overdue, and you and your people deserved every bit of the suffering and slaughter you were facing and receiving, that no one would even lift a finger to save you as now it was your time to pay, and pay, and pay again for the ‘sins of your forefathers’.

Other nations in Africa had international intervention when genocide spread like a virus throughout their lands, but your land was left to lie in its own blood.

I can’t help but see the similarity of this situation with that of the Jews, having no nation to call home for years, forced to scatter across the world, with no place to call their own, no place to rest their weary heads. They now have their own nation, but at a cost. But, it is still theirs to live and love, to work and play, to fight and struggle for.

South African Caucasians have NO PLACE TO CALL THEIR OWN. No place to go that they can call their own, no place to rest their weary heads.

The world has done a brilliant job of incriminating the ‘white’ minority to such an extent, with the help of course of the Communists, who now rule here, that we are now seen as the blight of the earth.

Our distant cousins from Europe refuse to lift a finger to help us but have completely cut us off, left to die in the dust of death. They take no responsibility for bringing us here, for offering us the opportunity to live and work here for them generations ago.

1000 upon 1000 have fled to far off lands, leaving their families and friends to struggle on for life on a sinking ship, leaving a remnant behind now forecast to be certain of extinction.
Some fight for our cause, taking our plight to as many as would hear our plight, but to date, none have sent out a ‘rescue ship’ for those left behind.

South Africa is a modern day story of the Titanic. The few elite take the few Lifeboats to safety, while the 3rd Class are left to fend for themselves. Everyone said the ship was unsinkable, a miracle man made creation of the modern age. South Africa has been called the miracle nation of Africa. A lavish and opulent vessel, built to endure the harshest conditions, on it’s maiden voyage, hits an iceberg and sinks within minutes. South Africa, a wealthy and self sustaining nation, built to endure and sustain itself, hits a political ‘iceberg’, one that seems puny and of not much magnitude, no one knew what lay beneath the seemingly still and quiet waters. The promise of peace and unity, the seemingly innocuous and benign government, who the whole world thought was heroic and courageous, has become our demise.

While we sink, send off flares, shout and scream, the distant ships look on ignoring our cries of distress, never hearing our constant SOS alerts sent out.

We cry out to God, “Save our souls!”

Will this be the last song sung before we slip into the watery political grave?

Was no lesson learned from Titanic, are we destined to repeat the past and our grievous mistakes?

One last time we cry out, “Lord save our souls!!!”
