Twenty years and what has happened to South Africa. The African National Congress (ANC) government has failed miserably and yet they remain arrogant and presumptuous about their stronghold. The ANC leadership is marred by corruption, crime, and instability. From Mandela to Zuma there has never been a solid foundation for peace and prosperity for the majority. The majority follows the ANC blindly and brainwashed by promises of a free future and yet they never see the light. It is like the ANC imitating the pied piper and singing a tune that never fails to prompt the ignorant and uneducated people to follow. The ANC pilot the people like puppets on a string, probably laughing all the way to the bank.
After terrorizing South Africa and killing innocent women and children, planting bombs in public places and trying to overthrow the former government, the ANC finally was declared the winner for the sake of peace. In 1994, a substantial infrastructure, vast wealth, and knowledge were given to the ANC. It has taken twenty years to demolish a perfectly good, stable working foundation, drain the resources, and forsake the knowledge. While that might not be the greatest problem facing South Africa today, it is perhaps the corruption and blatant open theft of ANC government and officials.
Where has all the money gone? The money is gone to self-enrichment, Nkandla, and greedy government officials. The most tragic part of the greed is the continuous quest to steal and drain the entire country of all resources. It is a never-ending drive to ensure that nothing is left for the development of the country. It is not only internal resources that are milked away; it is also the foreign money that has caused the green eyes to scream, “I WANT IT ALL” and that is exactly what has happened. Perhaps the Gaddafi billions was a cherry to delightful to ignore. Money, diamonds, gold and whatever else Gaddafi entrusted to the ANC top knobs has disappeared, whisked away quickly and deviously. The media have published stories about the Gaddafi billions and the whereabouts of the stash. It is a hush, a pushover for the ANC to hide the details and remain silent. Why would the ANC reveal the truth about the missing billions? Of course, the ongoing game of ruthless indulgence and misleading the world is the only concern. The ANC is not big on truth, yet this government has perfected the art of double-dealing, lying and manipulating people.
For over a year, I have published articles on the Gaddafi money, with links to reliable sources. (See links at end of the article for easy reference) On January 28, 2015, a French publication published an article about the ANC, Zuma, and the Gaddafi money. An article that holds back no punches and articulates the research and mission of trying to uncover the truth about the Gaddafi / South African missing billions. The article deals with the dedication and time-consuming effort of Erik Iskander Goaied resolving the issue of the South African connection. Goaied relates to the links between the ANC, Mandela, Mbeki and Zuma and the missing money. The missing money might not be returned to Libya due to terrorist organizations but can be used to liberate and educate the Libyan people. After all, the missing money the ANC government is keeping under the blanket does belong to the people of Libya.

ENGLISH TRANSLATION WITH COMMENTARY
In South Africa, he has long responded to the nickname of Erik "Niemand". "Niemand" which means "NOBODY" in Afrikaans. An alias that has accommodated this man of Tunisian-Swedish business wise and discreet manner. Erik Iskander Goaied, whose real name means “pleasure. “
"It was necessary to carry out my mission and my safety," he says in a seaside hotel in Tunis where he is visiting. For nearly two years, "Mr. Nobody" is dedicated to tracking down the "hidden assets" of Muammar Gaddafi in South Africa. We guess that behind his grin, that he for this mission was plunged into a dark world populated by arms dealers, politicians, spies, mercenaries and especially many crooks.
Presenting himself as paranoid and manic , he insists on showing his credentials Libyan government, those from the time of Prime Minister Ali Zeidan, who was dismissed March 11, 2014, and those of his successor Abdullah al-Thani, head of the government "in exile "in eastern Libya since the Islamist military victory in Tripoli last summer.
"This is the greatest treasure hunt in history, ' he says coldly" Mr. Nobody ". Installed today in Washington, says Goaied who is about to pass to the US authorities evidence implicating people in the highest levels of power of the South African government, the presidential palace ( Nkandla ) implicated in certain cliques of the African National Congress (ANC), the historic party of Nelson Mandela to lead the country for more than twenty years. He is convinced he got hold of the "treasure" and discovered the mysterious personal "hidden funds" of Muammar Gaddafi.
The close links between South African and Libyan authorities date back to mid-1990. (The relationship between the ANC and Ghaddafi stretches back to 1972.) Nelson Mandela did not hide his affection for the "brother Gaddafi," which had financially and militarily supported the struggle against apartheid. Among the heirs of the ANC, several businessmen later exploited this close relationship between the two countries to encourage the self-proclaimed "king of kings of Africa" to invest and store the bulk of his colossal fortune in South Africa. Thus transforming South Africa into a giant laundry washing dirty money for Gaddafi, who was paying for them a portion of oil. In any case, the claims of Erik Goaded is strange while ordering another coffee at the bar of the hotel in Tunis. Billions of petrodollars in cash, gold, and diamonds, in particular, have been transferred by air cargo and stored in Johannesburg and Pretoria between 2000 and 2011. "The South Africans must and will return this treasure to Libya, he said. There are 400 billion US Dollars. "
An astronomical amount smiles entourage Bashir Saleh, Gaddafi's former chief of staff covered by Interpol Red Notice. ( He is being sought in relation to the disappearance of some Euro 4 billion from Libya.) After a brief stint in France, Pretoria offered a comfortable refuge. For the decades until 2011, Bachir Saleh was at the heart of relations between Libya and South Africa. He was also the lead manager of SWFs, the Libyan Investment Authority and Libyan African Portfolio, whose investments are traceable despite the hundreds of subsidiaries and bank accounts. Jacob Zuma, the current South African president, and former head of the ANC intelligence has remained a loyal and grateful friend. ( Saleh was seen cavorting at Nkandla with Kulubushe Zuma )
"The leaders of the old regime (Libya) will block this process as they will not have the assurance that this money will not end up in the hands of Islamists."
"All this means nothing and is nothing but wishful thinking. There would be no more than 1.5 billion dollars in Libyan investments in South Africa, "states a source close to Bashir Saleh. It is also the estimated amount of former South African Minister of Finance, Pravin Gordan, who puts it closer to a billion. However, investigators from Command Global Service Company (SGC), formed by former US intelligence agents states. "There is a lot of money in South Africa and elsewhere we can no longer track and that are lost," whilst sitting on the terrace of a Parisian hotel , an Investigator of CGS Haig Melkessetian, who had been discouraged about the whole issue. He added: "To date, Libya has not recovered anything from South Africa. The leaders of the old regime (Libya) will block this process as they will not have the assurance that these amounts will not end up in the hands of the Islamists. "So many disputes the figures put forward by Erik Goaied: "These stories of billions of dollars in cash, it is bogus! This is a crooked situation according to a South African diplomat.
A simple VRP turned into bloodhound
Who is he this, "Mr. Nobody" to dare contradict and challenge some of the highest leaders of South Africa and their statements? An atypical trader of 48 years having acquired a good knowledge of the workings of the administration, both in Libya and South Africa. Having been a consultant for Elf Aquitaine (Togo, Nigeria, etc.) in the 1990s, he had entered into trade relations with Pretoria and Tripoli with a miracle product, "Burnshield" the name of these compresses allowing the relief of burns. Not without a certain audacity, he became in 1996 the exclusive seller in North Africa of this product manufactured in South Africa. Libya was under international embargo and considered "terrorist country". After many adventures, he ended up being briefly arrested in Tunis when a brother-law of Gaddafi, Ali Farkash, claimed certain commissions.
Financially ruined, he approached in 2008 another great Gaddafi agent who was a shining entity in the Ghaddafi universe, one Mohamed Tag, an influential person of the Wershefana tribe. Tag is a former aide who parted company with the Guide (Ghaddafi) in the late 1980s. The high-ranking contact to the Libyan army allows Erik Goaied to recover tens of thousands of his dinars and to regain a foothold in the business in Tripoli. This time is no longer compresses, but weapons and military equipment he sells, as a representative of the state-owned South African Denel. "When the revolution broke out in 2011, emissaries from both sides requested me to meet in Tunis to supply arms and advice, he said. I refused, for weapons because it was illegal. However, I gave advice to the revolutionaries, and I helped to transfer injured in Tunisia. "
In 2013, Erik Goaied was back in action for Libya in South Africa with his sidekick Mohamed Tag. He was asked by a Libyan army in chaos to act as an arms dealer. An order in the amount of five million dollars allowed him to get an appointment with Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula . The defense minister is wary of these intermediaries acting on behalf of a Libya that is sinking into chaos. She is right. For Goaied and Tag intended to take advantage of the opportunity to involve themselves in the sensitive issue of Gaddafi's assets. Moreover, to effect control they offer to pay with the Libyan dollars allegedly concealed in South Africa for these military purchases. Except that there is no contract or restitution fund. Maybe because, at the same time, other teams claim to represent the Libyan government to recover the funds of which, Serj Sam, in about early 2014, signs a final settlement for $ 12.5 billion. ( From USD 1 billion according to Pravin Gordan to this!)

Erik Goaied now involved in the case, convinced that the South Africans are eager to wipe the slate clean of $ 12.5 billion and that there is actually a lot more money in. (USD 400 billion – the South Africans thus wanting to steal the balance of USD 387,5 billion?) Along with his acolyte, Mohamed Tag, they produce a mandate from the Libyan government and derail the negotiations between their competitors and Pretoria.
To speed up his investigations, Goaied partners with a “sulfureux” arms dealer, the South African Johan Erasmus.( Erasmus had been attacked by the authorities in South Africa who had set out to steal his and his BEE partners’ business”) The latter, contacted by telephone, said in French accentuated by Afrikaans "That it is the former president Thabo Mbeki who benefited most from these funds. I have the certainty and evidence that billions of dollars of Gaddafi are still stored here in cash or banks. "
Among the documents recovered by Erik Goaied, presumably from South African officials, some are staggering. One of them, an email titled "The Libyan case, as discussed," addressed by the Chief of the South African NPA ( National Prosecuting Authority at the time , a dysfunctional institution) Nomgcobo Jiba, to the Director of Treasury, Rebecca Tee, sent on May 15, 2013 at 9 am 48 . Jiba` to evaluate all of the Libyan state assets in South Africa of some USD 179 billion "without considering the amounts known" under control by other administrations. ( Much more than USD 1 billion) In addition, she accentuates: "This amount is not under government control, but it is the result of an agreement between the Libyan authorities and some South African parties." If this email proves true, it will give weight to the estimates of "Mr. Nobody".
Through Tag Mohammed, now at the age of 62 years and boss of the New Asset Restitution Committee established January 22, 2014 by the Libyan government, Erik Goaied informs Tripoli of what’s happening, starting with Abdullah al-Thani, who will become the first Minister two months later. However, in South Africa, the threats are increasing in the year 2014. "Mr. Nobody" out of nowhere, would have become dangerous. "When there are such sums at stake, even the most honest men can reveal their dark side" words from a "wise old man" of the ANC. Emissaries of the powerful party and the President are engaging with Erik Goaied. The latter claims to have declined a series of full and final settlement offers to 32 then 64 and finally $ 150 billion in June. His only reply: "It has to be a reasonable offer to the Libyans, and they will have to agree to write off a portion of those funds." All In vain. Today, Mohamed Tag responds to the authority of the Parliament of Tobruk and the fragile government of Abdullah al-Thani, in a deeply divided Libya. The assets in South Africa? The committee directed that he made it a priority, even his obsession as follows : "We expect a return of at least $ 400 billion, a vital amount for the reconstruction of Libya, which will benefit the entire region, particularly our African partners," insists one of the three members of the Committee met in Tunis.
Before leaving South Africa last summer, Erik Goaied is invited on June 27 to an upscale villa in Waterkloof, Pretoria. There he is received by an adviser to former President Thabo Mbeki, who listens carefully. Before picking up the phone, he says. "Mr. President, you have to return the money, they know everything." On the phone with President Jacob Zuma, Erik Goaied reported his response to which he often think back, "Tell Thabo Mbeki and his family to return the money first and then we will discuss." End of conversation. The advisor to the closed face turns to Erik Goaied "Seek an alternative, you will find nothing here."
Duly noted. For "Mr. Nobody", the solution is in Washington. Only the Americans can put pressure on Pretoria, he thinks. Storyteller or crook for some, sleuth revealed later on for others, he said he brought to safety records, as thick tomes of a judge at the end of an investigation. “The file is processed at the level of the two States, but I believe Goaied Erik and his team are able to prove their claim and be in possession of documents, "states the former head of security and intelligence ANC Tito Maleka , by phone.
In the US capital, Erik Goaied intends to write the final chapter of his adventure. To enhance its credibility, he has secured the services of Ben Barnes, influential lobbyist, close to the chief diplomat John Kerry. "Mr. Nobody" is then found at diners in the intriguing K Street in Washington. On the sidel to the General Assembly of the UN, in a suite at the Grand Hyatt in New York, Friday, Sept. 26, 2014, he and Mohammed Tag presented the results of their investigations to the Libyan President Aguila Salah Issa. Exhausted by the years of investigations, they followed his speech closely the next day at the UN. Where, in an improvised sentence Issa called for "the assistance of all countries for the return of Libyan funds stolen abroad." ( South Africa has a case to answer?) A message to the US administration to address the issue that by now have convinced Goaied to put an end to what he called a "spy movie".
Now that the world has come to realize there is a real problem in South Africa, perhaps the game of greed will finally end. We all understand that Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe has ruined a great country and continued to rule with an iron fist of dictatorship. Denying human rights to his people and ignoring the world sanctions against the country. We all know that Zimbabwe is not only a failed state but also a total wreck, and the ANC are going down the same route. The good news is that there is time to stop the carnage and recover a land of gold and opportunity. There are people in South Africa that want an honest, reliable working government. The world cannot carry on ignoring the disorder created by the reckless leadership of the ANC coupled with the continuous genocide against the whites. The International Criminal Courts and U.S. must take immediate action against the ANC government and President Zuma. It is time for action and it is time for change! Action to move in an honest path and change from doom to credibility.
