South Africa Whites Only Oppression Is a Great Injustice

South Africa Whites Only Oppression Is a Great Injustice

South Africa

South Africa is a country known for deliberate acts of violence, yet the oppression directed at whites only is a great injustice. There is no end to the racial hatred actions and slow genocide of the white minority group. Genocide is a nasty word, and the meaning is the deliberate killing of a particular ethnic group or a large nation of people. The white minority group of South Africa have been victims of attacks for years. Not only are lives threatened, there are the continual implementation of new laws plotting to destroy the whites in South Africa.
Officially there will be no more bursaries for white only students. Discriminatory bursaries bequeathed to white only students violate the Constitution of South Africa, the Western Cape High Court declared. Several bequeaths stipulated that white only students may qualify for bursaries. The courts found this to be racist and not constitutional. Equality and prevention of unfair discrimination must be considered according to Universities benefiting from the funds bequeathed. Several universities do not associate itself with bursaries or loans that unfairly discriminate against individuals.
The Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) implemented to address restrictions existing within South Africa for black individuals to participate equitably in the economy is a mess. The BEE implementation is unconstitutional and racist. The BEE legislation is to secure the riches of South Africa for the majority. BEE perceives a person who has a job, a house, a car and a tertiary education as a previously advantaged person. The entire BEE legislation is about white and black and reverse apartheid. The status of BEE is often updated to ensure that whites have difficulty in obtaining work, eliminated from the economy and be placed in a disadvantaged position.
There are simply not enough white people in South Africa to take from and make a meaningful difference.The government presumes that if all white-owned assets were moved to the majority of South Africa, it would eliminate poverty. There are not enough white-owned assets in South Africa to defuse the poverty problem. Politicians use color to gain votes instead of solving problems of poverty. Only a small percentage of blacks have benefited from BEE deals and the majority still live in poverty and worse conditions than under the Apartheid government. The African National Congress (ANC) government are introducing laws to eliminate whites in the workplace, stop bursaries, donations, and force the minority into obliteration.
The attempt to destroy the spirit of the white minority group does not end with changing laws and implementing acts that discriminate against the minor group. Perhaps it is the horrific murders that silently claim the lives of innocent victims. Genocide is wrong and to kill people based on what ancestors did is immoral.
Farmers, the people that feed the nation, are brutally murdered because they are white. The murders are never without acts of heartless actions, like rape of elderly people, children and torturing the victims before killing. Barbaric acts against the minority have not stopped, and international groups carefully consider awareness of the slow genocide.

South Africa the Controversial Zulu King

South Africa the Controversial Zulu King
South Africa, the controversial Zulu King Goodwill Zwelithini was installed as the eighth monarch of the Zulus. After the death of his father in 1968, Zwelithini feared an assassination attack and went into hiding for three years and returned to South Africa in 1971. The Zulu king has six wives and 27 children. The Zulu nation is the largest ethnic group in South Africa.
The king is known for extravagance, and the royal household expenditure is managed by the Royal Household Trust. Expenditure by the king and family are not public and a carefully guarded secret. Toward the end of 2014 local South African media reported that the King had splurged the ZAR54 million allocated for the year and seeking additional funding to meet other requirements. The report detailed expenditure on the King’s palaces, stipends for his six wives, traveling and education. The education bill covers tuition, private schools and boarding for some of the King’s children.
King Goodwill Zwelithini is no stranger to controversial statements. Speaking at a meeting during January 2012, Zwelithini said, “same-sex marriages were rotten.” The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) condemned the remarks, and President Jacob Zuma reprimanded the king for making this statement. After an uproar, the Royal Zulu Household said the King’s comments were incorrectly interpreted and that the King did not condemn same-sex marriages but raised a concern about the state of ethical deterioration in South Africa.
Perhaps the controversial statement the King made in March 2015 was by far the worst. The King said foreigners should go back to their country. The king acknowledged that African countries had helped the African National Congress (ANC) during the liberation struggle and that it should not be an excuse to create situations where locals are inconvenienced. A week later, President Jacob Zuma’s son advocated the King’s call for foreigners to leave South Africa.
Xenophobia attacks rocketed across South Africa, and several people lost lives through unnecessary violence. The government set up refugee camps and assisted with the repatriation of foreigners leaving South Africa. African countries condemned the attacks and eventually the government deployed the Army to help quell the violence.
At a meeting last week, the King denied the statement and again said it was a misrepresentation. The king called for peace and asked the South Africans to protect the foreigners.
The king’s speech was derogatory and words of incitement. President Zuma and the ANC government have laid the blame for xenophobic attacks everywhere expect at the real source the Zulu King. The political importance of the king is evident to the ANC government party.
A black Friday protest in Malawi by human activists forced South African shops to close down in protest of the recent xenophobic attacks. The aim of the protest was to illustrate the cold-blooded attacks against foreigners in South Africa.
Nigeria and South Africa are the two main powerhouses in Africa and as a result of the recent xenophobia attacks, tensions between the countries are brewing. The Nigerian Senate are calling for an investigation of King Zwelithini’s remarks by the International Criminal Court. It is believed that the remarks made by the King incited the recent violence in South Africa. Civil rights groups and social network activists are horrified by the graphic images of foreigners being attacked in a savage manner. The ANC government are criticized for the manner in which they dealt with the attacks and the lack of sincerity surrounding the attacks.
Most African countries condemn the outbreak of attacks. Somalians, Zimbabweans and Ethiopians foreigners were among those attacked during the xenophobia rage. Africans are outraged by the shameful and senseless violence. Have the South African Zulus gone completely insane ganging up on fellow Africans, butchering, burning and stealing.
Ethiopia was one of the first African countries to assist the ANC during the liberation period and offered support and protection. Africans across the continent are annoyed that the ANC government have forgotten the history and the fight against Apartheid. Africans are questioning if the violence reflects a failed system under a corrupt government controlled by whites.
The SAHRC are investigating the remarks made by King Zwelithini and have received a serious of violent threats. SAHRC have implemented stronger security measures in the wake of threats to burn down the offices. The group sending threatening messages want the SAHRC to stop investigating the King.
Africa and the rest of the world are angry with South Africa, and this does distress the tourism business. Jobs will be lost, diplomatic relationships can turn sour. Economy growth can be disturbed. After all of this, who will get the blame, Jan van Riebeeck, apartheid and whites will ultimately be the target of blame. Somebody must take the responsibility, it is not the Zulu King, it is not the son of President Jacob Zuma and it is not the ANC government.

Breast Cancer Awareness Action

Breast Cancer Awareness Action

Breast cancer awareness is not only essential, it can prevent serious problems if detected early. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women of all races, and early detection can reduce a lifetime risk.
Performing simple breast self-examination tests once a month can avert a danger and help diagnose breast cancer. A simple test that can be done by either standing in front of a mirror and detecting any change in the size of the breast, nipple discharge or dimpling. Another method of testing is on a bed, with a pillow under the left shoulder, and placing the left hand on the head. Using the right hand to make circular motions, and pressing firmly over the entire breast area, under the arms and up to the shoulder bone, repeat the exercise on left breast. This simple test can be done in the bath, by raising one arm and using the free hand and keeping it flat and soapy to perform firm circular motions over the entire breast area, under arms and up to the shoulder bone.
A balanced lifestyle can reduce the risk of being diagnosed with not only breast cancer but any cancer. Simple, smart choices and embracing a balanced lifestyle can reduce the risk of breast cancer. Eating healthy, ensuring food is safe,  staying physically active and avoid Carcinogens, (cancer causing agents) all contribute to lowering the risk of cancer. Equally important to pay attention to any symptoms or signs that may become present. Medical attention should be sought if any health warning signs appear. Tenderness or lumps in or near the breast and underarm area should not be ignored as this may be an indication of breast cancer.  Any enlargement of pores in the skin and changes in the skin texture are signs that further tests may be necessitated. Remember not all lumps are cancerous and should be investigated as a precautionary measure.
There are many signs that can help to detect early breast cancer. Women should become familiar with symptoms such as changes in the size or shape of the breast, swelling, shrinkage of the breast or nipple leakages, nipple changes and any signs of skin becoming red or swollen.

Breast pain may not be an indication that breast cancer is the cause. Breast pain can be associated with fluctuation of hormones, side effects of birth control pills or infertility treatment. Stress and breast cysts may also be a cause of tenderness and pain in the breast area and not necessarily breast cancer.
Women over the age of 40 should have a mammogram test done once a month. A mammogram is the x-ray procedure. During the x-ray, the breast is exposed to a small amount of iodizing radiation that produces an image of the breast tissue. A qualified specialist will examine the x-ray for any suspicious areas. A mammogram will often expose a breast lump. A visible cluster of microcalcifications is also detected in the mammogram. Breast cancer can cause conditions such as cysts, fatty cells, specks, and lumps, and if the mammogram detects any abnormalities, further tests will be recommended. Additional tests will be performed such as an ultrasound or MRI. Moreover, if the mass is solid, it might be necessary to undergo a biopsy procedure when cells are removed from a suspicious area to check for any sign of cancer.
Frequent new reports are regularly updated by scientists on the health benefits associated with eating more fruits and vegetables. It is a worthwhile goal to eat a variety of different colors of fruits and vegetables daily. A healthy diet, reducing fats, and red meat have proven benefits. Exercise and emotional wellbeing are important. A healthy lifestyle is a better way to avoid dread diseases and breast cancer.
Being diagnosed with breast cancer is difficult and in addition to dealing with the emotional impact, the information could be overwhelming. Breast cancer can be cured and treated. Early detection is the key to successful treatment.

South Africa Violence and Destruction Is the Norm

South Africa Violence and Destruction Is the Norm

 South Africa has developed the attitude of addressing problems by retaliating with violence and destruction that has become the norm. After weeks of demolishing historical statues representing an era of South African history, xenophobia attacks turn the tense situation into an alarming calamity among the citizens. What is next the union building and all colonial billings built before and during the apartheid era?
The rainbow nation of South Africa, is a superficial mixture of critical, white European, Indians, and Africans caught up in a romance without debating the fundamental issues. Under Mandela, who was loved and adored by the majority of South Africa, the emphasis was on reconciliation and ignoring the effects of the racial divide. Twenty-one years later the human rights debate swings into protest with students demanding change in a destructive manner. It is a critical issue and ignored for years that has tilted South Africa into a serious plight of destruction. Violence does not produce realistic solutions. Although the young activists believe their profound destructive behavior is the only way to challenge a system that has no democratic values. Spurred on to demolish historical statues by a political party incites more anger and division between communities.
The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) a political party of South Africa, wants change and do not consider serious debate and recommendations for a peaceful transition. The activists registered in higher learning institutions behave in a demoralizing manner causing chaos without considering the detrimental effect on society. Racial tension and hatred are evident among protests and inflame calamity that springs from destruction.
Threatened and demoralized by the destruction and removal of statues by the majority groups within the rainbow nation, the minority groups who are now divided into English and Afrikaans become weary of continuing onslaughts against the history of South Africa.
Will these current outbursts by the young blow into a dangerous situation similar to the 1976 Soweto riots. The Soweto protests started by schoolchildren with the introduction of the Afrikaans language as the medium of instruction in schools. Reports confirm the death of 176 children during this time although the figure is estimated to be as high as 700.
The action of destruction by the students is setting a precedence for future generations to follow. With no intervention by government, the students claim victory based on illegal terms. During the past weeks, the turmoil caused has been disappointing for citizens that expected the leading party the African National Congress (ANC) to intervene in an appropriate manner.
Calamity and chaos have become the norm in South Africa. Racial tension and hatred among the different ethnic groups grows and entirely destroys the trifling reconciliation that has happened over the past 21 years.

South Africa Farm Attacks

A South African Farmer shares a story about farm attacks, Xenophobia, and the Black Empowerment policies.

10km north of Pietermaritzburg are two farms of large size about 5000ha each. One is called Hardingsdale and the other called Ottosdale.

A Mr. JS owned Hardingsdale and about 1968 a haystack was set alight outside his house at night. He rushed out and while putting the fire out an African male came into his house and attacked his wife. She was not badly hurt but was severely traumatized.

This led to his selling his entire farm during the early 1990s. He felt unsettled by this incident.
Mr. Peter Brown, the Liberal Party leader with Alan Paton, tried to force blacks to buy this property. Neighbors managed to stop it getting sold to blacks.

However, the new owner did sell to Broad Based Black Empowerment. A scheme with 900 black beneficiaries, about 2010.

A squatter camp developed despite the Environmental Laws that we have in South Africa. The area involves an important stream that flows into the Umgeni River, which feeds Durban Metro with water. Even the Durban Health Department does not act to prevent these new squatters.

Robert McBride in his position of Commissioner of Independent Complaints Commission stops any legal proceedings that would stop squatting.

He also prevents the South African Police Services from acting against the squatters.
He even has his hitman squad within the SAPS and this is controlled by him and not by the top brass in Pretoria.

The banker of Kentucky Fried Chicken was Rodney Berkenstein and he was microwaved on the Pietermaritzburg Victoria Country Club Golf Course and died of sudden heart attack on 10 December 2014. The banker was a Jew. The hitman was SAPS warrant officer Mzuza under Robert McBride’s orders.

The hitman squad stays at the Child Protection Unit in Willowton Road in Pietermaritzburg. Another abuse and wrongful use of a prominent place.

The three brothers, Sipho, Dumisani, and Ray, are the caretakers of Hardingsdale. They were with MK during the Bush War. They were in a terrorist training camp in Angola when the South African Air Force bombed that camp. They also trained to be terrorist in East Germany.

Sipho boasted that he placed the bomb in Mowbray Railway Station near Cape Town during 1986. No one was hurt. He did not appear at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission hearings.

It was SAP member  who told him to place that bomb.
They actually poisoned me with bio-chemical agent Botulism a few years ago on my farm.

Ottosdale is downstream from Hardingsdale and is owned by another BBBEE concern.

In the farmhouse is full of illegal guns and land mines and large caliber hunting rifles.
They include R5s, AKs, UZIs, 9mmPs and the hunting rifles and land mines and RPGs.
These come from North Korea, Vietnam, Somaliland and stocks from the Shaik brothers.
News24, Home Affairs, Broederbond and the Islamist groups such as Al-Shabaab, Al Qaida, Is, Isis, Boko Haram, Al Jazeera & Global Jihad supply these weapons and are stored in one big farm house!

The Right to Know group is a Colored group under Robert McBride. They are involved here.

Jacob Zuma is too scared to sign the State Secrecy Act into law as this will harm these groups. Mossad will get control then.

When foreigners were attacked, it was because of these large amounts of guns coming in from foreign countries that caused problems.

Sunday Times, News24 and Media24, and SABC are all calling for stopping the xenophobic attacks on foreigners.

But this is empowering the foreigners to cause more damage to the locals and this will include attacks on Whites in the very near future!

Not even the shopping Malls are safe! Look what happened to the Kenya Gateway Mall when the White Lady caused rebels to kill people inside the Mall! The South African Home Affairs at the Durban office gave The White Lady a South African passport.

Al Shabaab and Al Qaida get their guns from London, UK, which has very strong gun control laws for the people British population!

The governments of Britain and Europe cannot control illegal weapons in the hands of the black masses and those of Color.

South Africa Load Shedding Competing With Tour De France

South Africa Load Shedding Competing With Tour De France

South Africa

South Africa power giant Eskom could be likened to competing with Tour De France, with all the new stages being implemented. Stage four has now been applied by Eskom, in a bid to avoid an excessive overload on the electricity generating plants. South Africa experienced extreme load shedding during the past week; usually, the load shedding would not exceed stage two, however, this week stage three was applied. According to Eskom, the implementation of stage four load shedding is an aim to create more options for the power utility to actually produce and maintain existing plants.

Eskom, South Africa’s sole electricity utility, has failed. Independent observers gave a stern warning to the government in 1998, saying that the power plants were not sufficiently maintained. The signs gave rise to the expanding infrastructure and need for new facilities to ensure the country would be able to keep the lights on. Since the governments of Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki, and currently Jacob Zuma, the warnings were played down, with no direct initiative by the leaders to expand the rising need of supplying power.
During 2007, South Africa started widespread rolling blackouts across the country as the supply fell behind the demand. The reserve margin was flat and load shedding was gradually introduced in an attempt for Eskom to repair, maintain, or re-fuel plants. At this time, Eskom and government officials attributed the load shedding to insufficient generation capacity, and 2012 was mentioned as the earliest time for South Africa to have a stable electricity supply.
Construction on Medupi began in 2007 and the building of the coal powered station attracted criticism. It was alleged that the ruling African National Congress (ANC) government pushed the project forward, as the party held a 25 percent share in the venture and stood to make a profit of more than one million ZAR from the deal. During 2008, the project secured a loan of more than $500 million and another $3.75 billion in 2010 to complete the power station. The Medupi power station has remained under construction since 2007, and over the years, has experienced several problems including cash flow. Eskom have projected the switch on dates to be toward the end of 2015 and full capacity in 2019.
Eskom has experienced severe cash flow problems over the past few years, and the government has bailed out the power giant on several occasions. The vast amount of loans accrued and lack of accountability are not in the public domain. Eskom, a wholly owned state enterprise, is under the control of the ANC government.

Cornelia De Wet Trial Set to Continue Without a Final Date [Interview]

Cornelia De Wet Trial Set to Continue Without a Final Date [Interview]

Cornelia De Wet

Cornelia De Wet, a South African citizen charged with unlawful possession of explosives and ammunition, has been subject to a lengthy trial without any anticipation of a closing date. During an interview with De Wet, it was stated that the accused appeared in court on April 2015 and told that once again the case would be postponed until May 11, 2015. Not even halfway through the year, De Wet has already appeared in court six times this year.

In fact, De Wet has appeared in court more than 40 times over a period of three years. During this time, there has been no progress or any attempt to finalize the case. In the last court hearing, Cornelia did not have any legal representation, and the state said they would appoint an attorney. However, the state said that this would take some time to initiate, as there was no money available.
There have been some wacky reasons for the postponement of the De Wet case over the last 40 hearings. Either, there was no translator available, the state had not concluded proper evidence, or the defense team was not ready. De Wet has exchanged defense attorneys more than seven times, due to resignations by the representation not being prepared or claims of incompetence. The withdrawal by defense is always before a trial date is set.
The justice system of South Africa is failing, and the lengthy trial of De Wet proves that there are issues of misrepresentation as well as utter chaos. This case is set to compete with some of the longest trials in South Africa history.
The lengthiest trial in South Africa history took fourteen years to finalize. During August 1994, Dries Human was arrested on charges of car theft, fraud, and conspiracy. The case was postponed several times between July 1995 and 2008, due to the withdrawal of legal representation and missing evidence. Human was awarded a permanent stay of prosecution and walked away a free man.
Another lengthy court case was the treason trial of the Boeremag members, who spent several years parading in and out of courts. The trial started in 2003 and ended in 2013. Most members of this alleged white supremacists group received up to 30 years imprisonment for their role in high treason, terrorism, and sabotage.
Her trial has taken over three years without any foresight of bringing closure. Cornelia is anticipating that the court appearance in May this year will once again be postponed, due to lack of legal representation.

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Sexual Assault Awareness Month

Sexual Assault

It is Sexual Assault awareness month, and under the radar once again as reports of violence emerge from the University of Virgina. In a developing story, a young woman was assaulted by a known suspect. According to reports, the attack occurred between 12:30 and 1 a.m. on April 17, at a building close to the north side of the University of Virginia. The staff at the university acted swiftly, and have taken steps to investigate the matter and offer protection to the victim.
At a statewide conference, sexual assault was discussed at the Virginia chapter of the American Association of University Women on Saturday. Recent domestic violence and sexual assault charges have necessitated the need for awareness. The administrators are urged to pay particular attention to partner violence, in the wake of the killings of female students.
At the meeting, Claire Kaplan, the director of Gender Violence and Social Change program, said there was more awareness of the problem. Policies and sexual assault education programs are being taken seriously by colleges across the state, in light of the recent issues. Prompted by an article in a Rolling Stone magazine, awareness was brought to the fore. Investigations of sexual assault are a sensitive topic and alcohol usage among students is another problem. Often students do not report cases of abuse, in fear of ridicule and the insensitivity of law enforcement officers handling these cases.
Members at the meeting also discussed the shocking report of an unconscious woman being raped by multiple men in Panama City Beach, Florida. The story made national headlines this month, and a video of bystanders watching the ordeal did not shown any attempt to intervene, the police said. A member at the conference said the video showed that the students were intoxicated, and often this was a primary cause leading up to a sexual assault. Alcohol is a cause of problems and offenders often prey on young women who are incapacitated.
Bystander intervention was a topic discussed, and public campaigns are being rolled out across the country to teach people how to intervene in a risky situation. Training bystanders to intervene was necessary, as inadequate education of how to intercede in a situation could increase the risk of escalating the problem.
April is sexual awareness month, and reports confirm that one in five women in the United States has been sexually assaulted. The report includes one in four college students who have been targeted and raped. Another statistic was the amount of victims who were either linked romantically and others who knew the perpetrators. Alcohol played a significant role in most of the attacks. Shockingly it is estimated that over 70 percent of attempted or actual sexual assaults, are not reported to the police.

Terrorism in Africa - South African Farmer shares a story

In the early 1960s, the Afrikaans comics Kleinspan and Jongspan carried the series of Tarzan (and Apes) comic strips. During 1912 Edgar Rice Burroughs created Tarzan a fictional character. The setting for the comic strip stems from the dark, dense jungles of West Africa and a primitive African tribe. One series mentioned an invasion coming into Africa from Mongolia. This could be far-fetched, it is not.

At the end of the 1800s, the Rinderpest cattle disease swept down Africa and wiped out most of the Xhosa cattle herds in the process. A Xhosa Sangoma told the Xhosa tribes to kill all the cattle to appease the spirits. The killing of the cattle would drive the British into the sea, and that will save the Xhosa. It did not. Driven to starvation the Xhosa people had to work in the mines in order to get money to buy food. Wrong information was given to this sangoma to achieve a predicted end. Cheap labor for the mines! Who gave this information?

The Rinderpest came from Mongolia and Steppes of Russia. Who brought it to Africa? It was a Swiss veterinary doctor, Dr. Arnold Theiler, at Allerton State Laboratory, Pietermaritzburg, who found the right vaccination and cure, which stopped the Rinderpest. The authorities are to-be-had to have oxen to pull the ox wagons for transport riders, taking goods to the Transvaal mines. In addition, oxen were used to pull the guns fighting the Boers.

The veterinary departments were linked between all British Colonial in Africa, such as the Boer Republics, two Rhodesia, Nyasaland and Kenya, and the Allerton State vets got the right remedy.
Allereton, veterinary pioneers – Natalia, December 2014 – Link

The Ethiopian Emperor Haile Selassie was leading Africa in terrorism by saying over Radio Abbis Ababa, "Africa for the Africans" in order to stir up the African masses to chase all Europeans out of Africa. An Italian girl, born and grew up in Ethiopia, witnessed these events and told to a South African Farmer.

At about 10 o'clock in the morning, the (Ethiopian) native women arrived at the place of execution outside Addis Ababa. Then the prisoners, to be executed, were brought to the place of execution on an animal drawn cart. Four gallows were ready. At 12 noon, the Emperor arrives riding his white horse. The first, to be hanged, is led to the gallows. The noose is placed around his neck. The reason to be hung and sentence is read to the damned. The rope is long, and he is ready to be swung. He curses the Emperor and the damned turned, made to be strangled. He dances at the end of the rope for minutes before he dies. All the women witnessing the scene ululate on the side of the hill looking over the hanging. When all are hanged and dead, Haile Selassie rides back to his palace in Addis Ababa. In Addis Ababa, the peasants have rights.

A person drives his car carefully through the streets. Suddenly someone goes in front of the car and is run over. The police officer comes in the scene. While asking questions, the police officer produces a long thin knife and skewers the driver through his body killing him. Cars and vehicles are foreigners to Ethiopia!

Just before Ethiopia experienced a severe drought and famine was the order of the day. Until that time, the food production was based on the Feudal system. A few owned the agriculture land and peasants worked on the land and the nation was fed.

Miriam Mengistu was an army officer in Haile Selassie's administration he attended officers' college in the United States of America, the same that South African Magnus Malan attended. Miriam Mengistu converted to Marxism; this was NOT what Haile Selassie intended.

During the Ethiopian famine crisis, Miriam Mengistu caught Haile Selassie in his Palace and with his own hands strangled Haile Selassie. In addition, hid him behind the throne and told the nation that no one knew where the Emperor was. Obviously, he would have stunk and the secret became known.
As the famine, progressed Churches in Britain put up posters inside Churches explaining the plight of the starving Ethiopians. People willingly paid their contributions. Millions of Pound Sterling went to Ethiopia to feed the starving masses. Miriam Mengistu and his cronies received his money, and in drinking scenes, got drunk and drank all the money away. The masses got nothing. Then the USA and Arabs issued an arrest warrant for Mengistu. He fled to Zimbabwe and became Robert Mugabe's adviser on land issues.

In April 2000, David Stevens was the first White farmer to be brutally killed by ZANU/PF and police under Mugabe's new land reform program. Miriam Mengistu was the reason why David Stevens was killed. David's widow, Maria, went to New York and opened murder charges against Robert Mugabe. The USA and UN did nothing to bring Mugabe to trial.

Prof. Ian Scoones from the University of Sussex, England, is a Johnny come lately to the scene of feeding Africa. What happens after his contribution is foreign investors invest in African land that the previous owners have been dispossessed? The masses, peasants and the poor get no food from agriculture lands that have been taken over by foreign investors, whether American, British, European or Chinese. This happened in Ethiopia, Libya and in Zimbabwe.

Today, Al-Qaeda, Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram, Egyptian Islamic Jihad and the Lord’s Resistance Army are dangerous terrorist groups operating in Africa. There are other terrorist groups operating in Africa and the world. The terrorism in Africa does not stay in Africa; it trickles over to the rest of the World and remains an endless threat to peace and security.

Islamic extremists have found abundant ground to flourish in Africa and rapidly spreading their network of terrorism globally. Some of the bloodiest terror actions frequently happen in Nigeria, Algeria, Mali, Tunisia, Somalia and Kenya. The easy access of infiltrating across country borders and the corrupt governments are easy targets for terrorists to expand their operations. African governments often neglect to train army personnel and the underequipped armies have no mechanism for defending the vulnerable to the terrorist strikes. Almost every country in Africa receives US military assistance.

The vast lawless spaces in Africa are far away from US military bases and this would prove to be difficult to mount effective counter-terror initiatives. The terrorist's groups recruit foreign jihad fighters, often using young children to carry out murderous tasks.

Boko Haram is gaining control of Nigeria and is fighting to establish a pure Islamic state based on the Sharia law. Their ruthless attacks targeting schools, churches and army bases have a daunting effect on the government army who remain helpless against the cold-blooded killings. The army is under-equipped; weapons are old-fashioned and often hazardous proving that Boko Haram will ultimately win the terror war. Boko Haram are trying to connect with Al-Qaeda-linked groups with the sole intention of expanding the Islamic influence in North Africa,

Drug trafficking, ivory smuggling, and piracy are some of the actions used by terrorist groups to finance the continued terror attacks in Africa. Corrupt governments have lost control over the forceful and rapid rise in terrorism.

South Africa Xenophobia Has Increased Significantly Since 1994

South Africa Xenophobia Has Increased Significantly Since 1994

South Africa

South African xenophobia has increased significantly since the 1994 Democratic election. Although there was a lack of direct data, a study published in 2004 by the South African Migration Project (SAMP) perceived the increase in xenophobic attacks.
The African National Congress (ANC) government, during the reign of President Nelson Mandela, attempted to surmount the past divisions of the apartheid era and construct new practices of social unity. The new government started aggressive and comprehensive projects for the Rainbow Nation in an attempt to unite the people. During this time, there was an increase in the unforeseen byproduct of intolerance toward outsiders. In communities, especially those around underdeveloped townships, there was a visible division caused by bitter feelings and distrust, which began to spark violent action against foreign citizens.
In the study, based on a survey by participating citizens across the country, many South Africans expressed a harsh sentiment toward foreigners. Up to 64 percent of people were in favor of the government settings limits on the number of foreigners entering the country.
The study revealed that police officers in Johannesburg were of the opinion that up to 87 percent of those accused of crimes were undocumented immigrants involved in criminal activities. There is no substantial statistical evidence of this claim.
Immigrants realized that the police could not offer protection and reported that the officers mistreated, stole from them and made unfounded allegations. This was reported to a Burundian refugee representative in March 2007.
There was violence before the first May 2008 xenophobia attacks. Human Rights Watch reported from neighboring countries that during January 1995, foreign nationals living in the township of Alexandra were assaulted physically. Logal armed gangs began the task of identifing migrants who had no legal documentation. The locals then took the migrants to police stations to try to free the community of immigrants.  The 1995 campaign of ridding foreigners was known as Buyelekha (Go Back Home). The locals blamed immigrants for the rise in unemployment, sexual attacks and crime.
In September 1998, a group of South Africans blamed immigrants for the spreading of AIDS and crime and threw two Senegalese and a Mozambican man out of a moving train. During 2000, over a five-week period, up to seven immigrants were killed at the infamous Cape-Flats establishment in South Africa. The killings were labeled as due to xenophobia, instigated by a fear that local property would be claimed by foreigners.
During October 2001, at the informal Zandspruit settlement, the locals ordered Zimbabweans to leave within ten days. When the immigrants failed to do so, the locals burnt the shacks and forcefully removed them from the settlement. The local members expressed being annoyed that the foreigners had worked while they remained jobless.
At the end of 2005 and stretching into the first days of 2006, there were reports that two Zimbabweans were among the four people that died in the township of Olievenhoutbosch. A local man’s death was blamed on the foreigners. Once again, the shacks were burnt and looting occurred.


South Africa Xenophobia Mushrooms Around the Country

South Africa Xenophobia Mushrooms Around the Country

South Africa

South Africa erupts into chaos as xenophobia mushrooms throughout the country. President Jacob  Zuma calls the attacks Afriphobia as the violence is mainly black on black. South African locals are not happy with foreigners from neighboring countries, as well as the increasing lack of government response to the situation. The flourishing small businesses set up by foreigners in and around townships in South Africa annoy the locals who are unemployed and struggling to survive. The locals are annoyed that foreigners have taken away jobs; and increasing poverty among the people have been a leading cause of violence. The locals want the foreigners to leave.
Another cause of the violence is the concept that immigrants contribute to the uncontrollable drug problem in the country. The country is on fire, and attacks seem to spring up in different places and the people have spoken and are fed up with foreigners exploiting local opportunities.
The recent xenophobia attacks started in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa and soon spread to the other provinces. Police patrol the streets, shooting rubber bullets at perpetrators in the hope of quelling the attacks. The attackers throw stones and glass at foreigners and police. Several people have died, and the police have confirmed that arrests have been made. This has not helped or curbed the attacks.  The police, it would seem, are unable to cope with the current violence; and fears that the military might be called upon are concerning. Refugee camps have been set up in an attempt to protect foreigners, and both Malawi and Somalia have started a process to repatriate the people affected by the attacks. Many foreigners call the police for protection, and some have no alternative but to flee the crime scene. What decisive action can be taken? During 2008 or as early as 2005 xenophobia attacks sprung up and there was no clear message from leaders to solve this problem.
Under the current circumstances, the South African government must step up the process of communication . There are contradictory messages from leaders. The president says it is a huge problem and the locals must respect the foreigners. Other leaders say it is not a primary concern, but rather small attacks that are controllable. The government says the xenophobia attacks are in fact under control, yet, videos, images and interviews with victims reveal a different story.
The problem of avoiding xenophobia attacks could have been prevented if the documentation of all foreigners entering the country were correctly applied. The theme to eradicate corruption within government departments and using stricter controls to curb African migrants might have reduced the current violence. A little too late, however; it would seem that Zuma does not have the understanding or leadership qualities to take charge of a desperate situation. The speech Zuma presented does not control the violence, speaking from behind a microphone telling parliament and the country that these attacks are condemned does not solve the problem.
A few weeks ago, the Zulu King, Zwelintini uttered annoyance at foreigners within South Africa and said “they should pack their bags and leave.” Within days, a son of President Zuma echoed the King’s sentiments blaming foreigners for crime and corruption. Did this report urge the locals to take up arms and declare war on foreigners? The silent support Zuma has shown for the Zulu king  and son Edward regarding the remarks about foreigners has reached a goal and by not defending the immigrants lives have now been lost

We Gave You Life.

If life is the greatest gift of all, then the white man gave the black one life...

Africa tribes people occupied the area and but for the coming of the white man they would not be many more today. Disease, malnutrition, infant mortality and death by spear and burning would have eliminated the majority. The white man came and rid the black communities of the crippling disease, introduced survival tactics, education and more.

In practice, the black community tribal chiefs believe the spirits or ancestors ultimate decide the tribe’s weal or woe. The sacrifice of a child or an animal was and perhaps still the usual practice to appease the spirits and find favor with the people. The tales of African nights stretching back to unknown beginnings, around the huts the shrieks of the old men and women, deafened the silent nights. A young man could not marry until his spear was covered in blood, and so the killings start and in a few minutes it is over, the bodies lay among the embers and the man is gone. Another ordinary black friendless night. The burning, the black on black killing and the chilling sacrifices to appease the tribal rulers.

Today, the educated and affluent African towns-person, with a business, still remains subject to his/her tribe’s communal customs. Today they are bound to the tribe and its tradition, handed down from the remote recesses of time because there is no history as the West knows it.

It might be said that time and patient responsible statesmanship might in time procedure a harmonious solution to the most challenging problem of the world. Perhaps there is no future of improving relationships between white and black people. Perhaps the only long term solution is separate lives in different lands.

After many years of trying to reconcile the vast differences of cultures, with little or no progress, the dark African nights have suddenly and violently returned again. The black on white violence erupts with the killing of farmers, the stoning of cars, torturing whites. The irritations and conflicts to set the different races against each other fomenting an atmosphere of war. This is the original Africa and the life given cannot change the prudent rulings of the tribal chiefs.

Possibly the quote from Douglas Reed sums up this article.

... An overwhelming majority of those who understand the question are in favor of the establishment of separate areas in which each of the two races, black and white, should be permitted to acquire interests in land ... However desirable it may be that members of the two races should live together side by side with equal rights as regards the holding of land, we are convinced that in practice, probably for generations to come, such a policy is not practicable or in the best interests of the two races. Until the Native has advanced very much further on the paths of civilization it is better that the points of contact between the two races should be reduced and a lengthy period afforded for the study of the whole question of the future of the relations between the two races in an atmosphere which is freed as far as possible from the setbacks which would ensue from the irritations and conflicts arising from the constant close proximity of members of races of different habits, ideals and outlook on life.
