willie beetge gedigte: O Donderwolk

O donderwolk oor die see
jou werk om reen vir ons te gee
Met jou rand gedoop in goud
jou middel grys en koud
en as ‘n blits uit jou uitslaan
en die see teen jou opstaan
is jy soos ‘n ligflits in die donker nag
met jou diep stem wat dondererd uit-lag

lopende druppels oor jou wang
maak kind en boot so bang
soos ‘n dief in die lange nag
verander jy die donker nou in dag
jou stem wat oor die water skree
ek is hier om teen donker in te tree
en dan die water wat uit jou stroom
‘n Vrystaat boer se droom

Laat dit liggies oor ons reen
laat jou water ons tog seen
laat die wind jou stoot tog nader
ons gebed aan ons hemelse Vader
laat die plantjies vir ons groei
laat die onheil tog ophou broei
laat jou stem die stille tog verdryf
as jy teen jou vriende tog nou vryf

Ag donker donderwolk
bring tog seen vir ons verdroogte volk
bring ons tog die oorwinnings lied
wat tog vir ons hoop kan bied
laat die damme om ons vul
sodat die leeu weer kan brul
laat water tog benat ons land
ons land hier aan die suider-kant

Zuma embarrass South Africa

Zuma embarrasses himself and SA on Chinese TV

Ryk van Niekerk

President Jacob Zuma conducted a cringeworthy TV interview that reveals his total lack of understanding of the challenges facing the SA economy. 

There are few interviews with heads of state that have been as embarrassing for a country as the one President Jacob Zuma did this week.
The Chinese television station CCTV interviewed a visibly nervous Zuma this week as part of the channel’s coverage of this week’s G20 summit held in the Chinese city of Hangzhou.
It was not Zuma’s finest hour – or 18 minutes and 36 seconds – to say the least. In fact, it was as cringeworthy as it gets and underlines his lack of understanding of the challenges facing the South African economy. If it wasn’t such a massive embarrassment for South Africa, it would have been funny.
The interview was conducted by veteran journalist Tian Wei of the World Insight programme. She has been referred to as the Chinese version of CNN’s Richard Quest and has interviewed many word leaders. World Insight is one of CCTV’s premier international news shows and provides global political and economic insights from a Chinese perspective.
The interview may also explain why finance minister Pravin Gordhan was the point man at the WEF meeting in Davos this year and why Zuma also controversially missed a panel discussion about Africa’s economic challenges during this event.
Zuma is also renowned for avoiding the South African media, but this time he could not hide.
But don’t take my word for it, watch for yourself….
(The video and the full transcript of the interview appear below.)
Tian Wei: During this year’s G20 summit [the] Chinese president has made very clear at the very beginning that Africa will be one of the focal points, but it also depends on the other 19 economies of the G20 whether that will be the case and whether there will be concrete results.
Zuma: Of course President Xi Jinping made that point very clear, loud and clear, and nobody opposed that proposal. So everybody accepted that proposal, partly because they know the position of Africa, where Africa comes from. They also know the challenges of Africa and therefore it is accepted that there is a specific approach that is given to Africa.
Tian Wei: And during this process Mr  President what should be Africa’s role – because you are the only African leader that is present there at the G20 economies – so what should be, could be, and will be Africa’s role?
Zuma: Well, Africa … firstly Africa has a particular history. Africa, I think of all the regions of the world was the only one which was totally colonised and stayed therefore for long time without Africa doing its own things, when the countries from Europe were actually suppressing them for many years. I think it was only in the decade of the sixties [1960s] that they began to get their independence. So whilst other countries moving, they were in a sense ‘trapped’ in the colonial situation and they had(?) to get a phase where they were fighting for their liberation. But also the colonialists had come to occupy and dominate their resources so to speak, so whatever Africa is trying to do now is coming up from a very heavy kind of suppression and therefore Africa is lagging behind.
But Africa is saying it’s a region that is emerging, that is now for the first time trying to come together so that they have a collective kind of an approach as a region and therefore it sees its future – and of course South Africa is one of the big economies in the in the continent, it is a member of a G20 and South Africa does not represent itself only, it represents the continent and therefore it speaks on behalf of the continent whilst is it is speaking also on his own behalf.

Tian Wei: Infrastructure projects usually take a lot of cash. I understand there has been an establishment of the BRICS New Development Bank; it has been running for one year. Even the South African has now become (?) head of that organisation and also the AIIB which has just started with their first …global board meeting. What do you think Mr President, will these two entities provide … your country with more alternatives, even the African continent?
Zuma: The continent had taken a very deliberate decision to establish infrastructure that is going to connect the entire continent and heads of states are actually leading that kind of – there’s a committee that is leading that kind of -infrastructure to ensure that infrastructure is there. But also, the question  of funding will always be a challenge, so the emergence of the BRICS bank has been one of the most important kind of happening in our society, because BRICS bank is different from other big banks that would have stringent conditions, what it [should] do … and therefore Africa and South Africa, all of us, are looking at the BRICS bank as the bank that is going to make things easier and the BRICS itself has that understanding that Africa … that’s why whilst the headquarters of the bank are here in China in Shanghai but a regional BRICS bank is going to be in Africa, in South Africa.

Tian Wei: It’s an African centre of the BRICS banks. But what is [likely?] to be the role of this African centre?
Zuma: … one of main roles will be to find to fund the infrastructure in Africa, that is what it is going to do. Already they are projects that have been submitted to the bank here that now need to be looked at so that they can continue. So the emergence of the BRICS bank has been a step forward for us

Tian Wei: President Zuma industrialisation of the African countries have been quite a debate over the past few years. But how, how to do industrialisation? It has its positive connotations, sometimes negative connotations. So what do you think is the approach that African countries, including yours, should adopt in order to have industrialisation?
Zuma: Well there are many things that we need to do. The question of industrialisation in our own continent has one side only, does not have a negative side.

Tian Wei: Really okay tell us about it.
Zuma: Why, because we’ve never been industrialised in the past. Industrialisation waves that have come and gone, Africa was not touched. In other countries industrialised, for the first time we are industrialising. Because colonialists were not there to industrialise Africa. But in South Africa you have a different kind of situation wherein there was industrialisation, but not by the indigenous people, the majority, by those who came to settle. Now what we are saying is that the black people themselves must create the industry. So for the first time we are creating middle-class; we are creating people who are going to own businesses for the first time. So it can’t have a negative side; positive side all the time. We are going to create jobs; we are for example training our people, skilling them for the purposes of industrialisation with us. So that’s what we are looking at. Part of what President Xii Ping was saying, [is] to focus on the continent is actually to support among others, industrialisation itself.

Tian Wei: Talking about industrialisation, people look at China – whether it’s a China model or not, that’s for debate. But certainly the China experience, what does that mean to you Mr president and also other African nations?
Zuma: What is critical with China is that the openness, much as they say so, but they are doing business as business, but guided by the Chinese characteristics. But what is important is that that in itself is a lesson to other people. How have the Chinese succeeded? It is because they have discipline in the job they do – that’s what people have got to adopt. I’ve said it to many people: you can wish to be Chinese, you’ll never be because you’ve got to have what guides them as an ideological approach, so to speak. But that’s [not to] say you cannot do it.

Tian Wei: What do you make of these dramatic changes when it comes to the demands of qualities of political leadership?
Zuma: Well, South Africa is a democratic country – it is just 20 years. The experience is very clear: any former national liberation movement in 20 years, there are challenges politically that challenge the political party. What becomes important: how is that party responding to those challenges. That is important. I don’t think the ANC is different from other formal political parties. What is important [is] that the party must understand what is happening and it must say what do we do to deal with this.
For example, 20 years in South Africa: it means democracy has matured and people generally, are beginning to make the choices having thought in the one form the other and it means … for an example for the first time in South Africa, we have just gone through the local government elections, wherein people have made their choices and we’ve had three metros at the big [??] that they were tying for the first time. And then there’s been an introduction of a new element of coalitions, because there is no one party that could rule without talking to smaller parties. so that’s a new element that is coming, that even small parties can now determine which direction a metro goes, or a municipality goes. That is a new kind of politics.

Tian Wei: What does that mean for the used-to-be major party?
Zuma: ANC used to be a major party, it means we have reached a point where democracy is now taking another kind of turn. The ANC then has to say, how do we handle this situation as a big party in the question of coalitions. We must now begin to plan and factor in the issue of coalitions when we go for elections – that’s what it is all about. And this is a maturing of democracy and that’s what it is.
If you look at old democracies they don’t have too many parties because they’ve been there for  a while, and parties have been sort of shrinking into either two or three. So it is a process of the democratic process that we are now 20 years and therefore the politics, if you talk about winning elections, are beginning to introduce a coalition factor, which has not been a factor before.

Tian Wei: Mr Nelson Mandela had been so respected around the world. I remember a few years ago when Mr Mandela passed away, you were the one announcing the news to the rest of the world. What do you think is the most important part of his legacy and what would that mean for all politicians, including yourself Mr President, of your country?
Zuma: President Mandela was made by the ANC to be great – that is very important to know. It is the ANC that is much much much important to many of us, including President Mandela. He was part of shaping the policies of the ANC and the ANC has not changed policy. So its leaders will always be there. But times are moving and Mandela’s legacy will always be remembered; not just Mandela alone … Oliver Tambo and others. And we are sticking to what Mandela practiced as the policy he believed in and he believed in until … he departed this world.
So we are the organisation of Mandela. We are using the lessons from Mandela to run the organisation, to run the country. So we think of Mandela as our leader who gave to us the lessons within the ANC framework and we stick to them and we will follow what Mandela did and following that will never go wrong.

Tian Wei: Mr President, there are issues with your economy. For example, there are some estimates suggesting zero growth. So people are wondering what kind of tools do you have in hand in order to change that situation, to put your economy on a better track?
Zuma: Well this is part of what we we’ve been discussing as the G20 – as to what do we do to boost up the economy, to if you want, ‘reignite’ the economy – what is that we can do. And I think the proposals coming from China through the president were very clear, that we need to break and look at innovation as a critical driver of the economic growth and you must have inclusive economic growth. There are many other kinds of things that people are looking at: how do we do the situation; how do we create jobs.
We need to agree, because right now if we say the economy is sluggish, it means investors are hesitant to invest. They’re sort of holding their money and we are saying, let them be encouraged to do so. As a government in South Africa we have in fact done a lot of job creation, trying(?) to invest, trying to encourage the private sector. Now if for an example you are saying ‘let us grow the economy’ and then you invest or you protect your investment – we are using the term ‘protectionist’ – but the workers who are working they want higher wages, there is no sensitivity where we should all come together to say ‘since the economy is under challenge what is it that we can sacrifice, all of us, in order to ensure that we can grow the economy’.

Tian Wei: One of the  things that your economy is facing is the energy prices – the fluctuation of the energy prices. Of course you try to seek ways out, but still at this moment difficult. What do you make of that dependence your economy has on energy?
Zuma: That is one of the difficulties. Perhaps our economy… one of the areas would be energy. The energy has a history as well – because everything in our own country has its own history, because it was not worked on to take care of the entire population, because of our history. So we are almost like starting from new, but what we have been doing a lot of kind of progress from that point of view. And therefore to us it is important, because energy is important for the economy to grow. And we are working hard to ensure … we are for an example having a programme of mixed energy so that we do all types of energy, so that we can in a sense increase the volume of energy, so that that can help to generate the kind of economy that must go there.
Of course, the price of energy – depending what we are talking about … for an example, other countries in Africa they were affected with regard to the going down of fuel, of oil rather, in other countries … that base themselves on the oil and that caused a problem. We get more affected because we are a mining country: the commodities coming from the mine also were no longer being attractive out there. So that in itself affected the kind of economy and these are the matters that we have got to say, how do we handle this situation as we go forward.

16: 24
Tian Wei: Mr. President when you look at the African continent, what do you make of the role of South Africa? What do you think should be the role that South Africa plays on your continent, or representing our continent worldwide?
Zuma: Well South Africa is playing the role already. Firstly in the African continent, we take it as a priority that we work with them. We are participating in shaping the approach that Africa makes. We are participating in addressing the problems of the continent; for an example, we are there to keep peace; we are there to influence that there should be peace; we are there to defend those who’d be troubled by violence etc. We use the capacity we have. We … don’t do this as one country; we do this as part of a collective of the AU and there we play a part. we play a part outside of the continent by sensitising the world about the challenges of the continent.
Right now South Africa is the member of the G20. It’s not raising its own matters only; it raises the matters of the continent – that’s part of the role it is playing. When BRICS came for the first time to meet in South Africa, South Africa asked the leaders of the continent – particularly those who have specific responsibilities – to meet with BRICS, to raise the issues with BRICS, and it was a very useful kind of meeting. That act has introduced in BRICS leaders what is now called ‘the outreach’, that when BRICS meets, leaders in the region would also come … that’s how South Africa sees its role, and it is acting on this role.

Tian Wei: Thank you very much we really appreciate it thank you for your trust and your confidence Mr President
Zuma: Thank you very much indeed.

Black NGO defraud their donators

Andile Mngxitama from the movement BLF asked in the article supporting Zuma with a KFC chicken in his cheek 
". Who owns the mines in South Africa?
. Who owns ABSA, FNB, Nedbank and Standard    Bank?
. Who owns the land?
. Who owns Pick ‘n Pay, Shoprite Checkers, Pep Stores, Edgars, Markhams and all the stores that we buy from every day?
. Who owns the media?
. Who owns the furniture shops, the car dealers, the cement factories and the brick making companies?
. Who owns Chicken Licken, Nando’s and KFC?
. Who owns the shopping malls?"
In an article published by the NGO, Black First Land First (BLF) they contradicts themselves so badly that the black population really have cause to investigate their actions. How can an NGO tell their people to stand up against white capital, tell them in the same article that the white owned banks must fall, giving these same readers a list of banks that is supported by black people but are white owned? In this list they include banks like First National Bank, calling that these white capital must fall, but at the end of the same article they encourage people to assist their cause by donating money to their very own First National bank account. They called that these banks must be nationalised, so why don’t they use the post office, which are nationalised to keep their account?

This is once again prove that these money chasing groups, does not care about the very cause that they stand for, I mean in this same article they support Zuma to stay, they support the man that steal the treasury and nationalised companies blind, they call for a boycott by using the very same institution to receive money for them, the very same institution that they want to fall.
The idiots should practice what they preach……..

The winds of change

Political storm on the horizon, or not

As the winds of change blow over the bare fields and cities of South Africa the poverty levels and discrimination levels rise like a baby tornado through the streets and fields Leaving debris and suffering of the population, while the government buy new cars and build Nkandla’s for all the cadres of the ANC. During the last election the twirl of the wind lifted the skirt of the ANC exposing the private parts dripping with corruption and greed to the public, but with a well-practiced sweep Matashe sweep the skirt down blaming the wind on the election procedures, while convincing the ANC members that the dripping private parts that was expose were merely an illusion from the “apartheid” era. With his glasses slipping down over his nose and his beady eyes peering at the paper on the podium, he denies that President Jacob Zuma had anything to do with the poor performance at the voting poles while stumbling over a few big words.

In the meantime the winds rip dust from the roots of weeds growing at the feet of white children in an informal settlement, obscuring their view of the real truth, while Julius Malema stands on his soapbox promising them water and electricity. The short-lived dream, of prosperity, forces the poverty-stricken white tin dwellers to break out in joy while receiving EFF T-shirt from the soapbox operator. T-shirts bought with the money that can relieve their hunger for the day, T-shirts of the same ideology that put them in these hunger circumstances through the implementation of Black empowerment and quota systems. With their hands signalling the black power fist, they dance around the oppressor, the same oppressor that removed their civil right in the first place, to the promise of civil rights in the future. This all happens minutes before he (Julius) scream from his soapbox, that, he will not fight for whites.  

The winds are now blowing over the lonely unoccupied building of a once proud farmhouse; the silence is the only whiteness to the gruesome murders of the occupants, the only whiteness to the politically driven hate crimes against the white farm populations. It is the only whiteness to the crops that will never feed the Nation again, like the power of a truck without a driver lie the fields of the farm without a farmer. This all while the government keep screaming from wooden soapboxes that they do not hate the white farmer, before they conclude the meeting singing “bring me my machine gun”, “kill the Boer kill the farmer”, and yet we are sitting in our newly jobless cocoons, praising the ANC for the peaceful transformation, a transformation with a blood trail that stains the fields of all the provinces, a blood trail with white and black blood in the name of peace.

With change as a driving force, the wind blow over a crowd of students armed with placates and matches to burn what they receive, to destroy the very institute that can eradicate their poverty status. The crowd are not sure what they screaming for but they do, they are not sure what they are burning buildings for but they do, and that all in the name of improvement, in the name of change. The dancing silhouettes of the figures edged into the white, red and orange flames, under the black cloud of their once education chance, While the minister of education is terrorising a white crèche full of toddlers for their participation of isolation.  As the flames dance through the artwork spreading with the wind of change behind it, the students scream that they want more, more of the things that they are burning, free education while they are burning the structures needed to educate them, while they are burning the things that their education money bought to improve their education and now need to be replaced. 

Like a breeze before the storm the wind of change are sweeping through the corridors of parliament, blowing dust into the eyes of the speaker, dust that blind her from recognising the members, blinding her from controlling the outcome. Winds that blow, the President from the podium, mingling the figures on his paper, making it unpronounceable, winds that came through the sails of communism, through the freedom of captivity, through the freedom of restrictions and control, and that all in the name of equality.

The winds of change blow through networks of social media, preventing a sparrow to land on a tree, preventing the monkey business to be heard, while a perpetrator of the ANC call for the killing and raping of white people through the channels of Facebook, the sparrow become an enemy of the state, while the killer caller become a suspended hero, and that all in the name of camouflaging the movement of destruction of government, the movement in the name of liberty. Like the poverty-stricken white informal settlement dwellers we welcome the winds, we welcome the winds of captivity in the name of freedom.

When will the winds of change turn into a storm? 
When will we realize that the breeze of change is not blowing to bring the rain, but to bring the storm that will swallow everything?

Who will recognise the storm and close the doors and windows to keep their houses clean?

Hair in school’s racial soup

The quality of good leaders are to encourage others to do better, to do more and to achieve more, not to do less, to make noise and to destroy all.

Skin colour, hair extensions become a mob driven minor two step on the fields of Pretoria Girls High school, after a minor under the influence of racial discrimination took hands with the Minister of Education in a bid to prove that hair rules at the school are based on skin colour like the countries equity rules on BBBEE. 
The drive to resist rules and regulations become the outcry for freedom and might pave the way for the long walk to captivity, the long walk to undermine regulations, to undermine minorities and to establish a stronghold for the rights of students. In future it might become illegal to educate if the colour of your skin and bounce in your hair are not within the rules of Nkandla the home of the Chinese ambassador to South Africa, Jacob Zuma. The outcry against the very rules that ensure greatness in schools, universities and the communities, driven by ridiculous teenagers, teenagers that echo the voices of their parents in their struggle to overcome their fear of the white minority in South Africa.

Ridiculous become the norm and stupidity become the aim, even Max Du Preez start looking normal, after his idiotic statement that the DA is the voice of the white South Africans, in his bid to have a national anthem that his musical ear can harmonise with. Max can learn from the “mob” driven Pretoria girl how to harmonise music while pushing her chest out to security personal, wrapping the same words like a cd in a dusty old radio.

The Minister of Education pledged to look into the matter, to investigate the dress code rules in all model C schools, while the children sexual protection act is totally ignored with video predators filming a minor pushing her chest out protesting and then splash it all over social media, and that without any written permission from the guardian, who at that moment was the school.

The sexual body language of a teenager has captured the media including social media, which make me wonder what is brewing and need to be covered by a reverse Penny Sparrow scenario.

My argument is, if the rules of the school needs investigation let it be done, but without the sensational assistance of the media, run the investigation without the exploitation of minors all over the media; fix the wrongs without the twitter miles for self-made celebrities with tears in their eyes, and a minister with nice political correct words.

The quality of good leaders are to encourage others to do better, to do more and to achieve more, not to do less, to make noise and to destroy all.

The plan to destroy a nation

28 August 2016
Under the smoke screen of BBBEE they have lead the road to capturing the capital of a country, to blindfold the masses with promises of Black empowerment, while all the empowerment went to the comrades of destruction, the comrades who were in exile during apartheid, withholding it from the people that had to endure the laws of apartheid. 

South Africa the home of cultural and language diversity, a country with enough resources and basic abilities are currently swallowed whole by political greed and a drive to divorce the economic structure from capitalism, a drive to destroy the very cultural power of individual groups by sucking them into a new world order system, a system of large government and Nationalisation of entities and property with the promise that this will diminish the inequalities of the past, that it will elevate the poverty stricken population to equal grounds of prosperity. The masses is hanging onto this promise, a promise of unionised job opportunities, a promise of equal rights and a promise that capital will be moved from the rich to empower the poor. To achieve the point of economic destruction, the point where nationalisation can be implemented it is necessary to cripple the economy, to cripple the stand fast cultural strength of the individual and of the groups representing them, to drive a wedge of conflict between the citizens of the country. It will be necessary to desensitise the population to wrong and right, to accept the unacceptable as  the way to assist others.

Slowly they have bring corruption murder and economic fall into action, so slow that the man in the street and the ignorant do not smell the destruction rat, so that the crippled economy and the possible genocide in a country became so normal, that we accept it under the name of “the new South Africa. What better way to do this than to brainwash the population with a President that cannot pronounce the number of his supporters, a president with no qualifications, a president that the population can blame for the weak performance of the Rand.

How far have we been desensitised?

The apartheid government brought the Rand down to 4 Rand to the USD, a point of absolute disaster a point where they had to negotiate and abolish their believes to save the country, at the moment we are in ecstasy when the Rand strengthen to ten rand to the USD, we have lost sight of the economic fall of the weakness of our Rand, we have lost the sensitivity of growth and exchange it for the freedom of captivity. We have change our vision on growth to a vision of survival, and then we blame the ANC under the capable hands of Jacob Zuma for the economic instability, the instability needed to destroy capitalism in the country, we have lost vision of the fact that the ANC and the communist party (SACP) are partners, partners to nationalise all the assets in the country. When Jacob Zuma visit the communist China we see it as trade relations, we even start believing in the communist system, a system of so called equality, a system of hope.

If we start looking in detail at the system, we realise that the ANC under Jacob Zuma have entered their most successful era since the end of apartheid, they have managed to change the opposition parties into a fullyassisted entity to destroy the economy, they have changed their strongestopposition party into the ANC of twenty years ago, giving them the opportunity to swing further left, they have removed our attention from the economic destruction and focussed it on the corruption of Jacob Zuma, they managed to take control of all the large news agencies and of the social networks. Whenever Jacob and his comrades blame apartheid, or even Jan van Riebeeck for their shortcomings, social media are totally captured with opinions while they the ANC can drive forward without any repercussions of media exposure.

Under the smoke screen of BBBEE they have lead the road to capturing the capital of a country, to blindfold the masses with promises of Black empowerment, while all the empowerment went to the comrades of destruction, the comrades who were in exile during apartheid, withholding it from the people that had to endure the laws of apartheid.

This smokescreen rolled over the eyes of not only the poverty stricken black South African but also the minority groups who feel that they need to assist to eradicate the injustices of the past. Blindfolded we empowered the cadres, blindfolded we followed the masked journalist like Max Du Preez telling us to assist the fall of our economy, to assist the implementation of the most captive and murderous system in the world, communism, and blindfolded we follow.

While we are all in ecstasy about the local election results, the ANC continue with the destruction, their agenda to get total control under Jacob Zuma, their aims to capture the economy of the country. While the newspapers are filled with DA victories and the attack on Pravin, the ANC and their allies, including the EFF, are plotting to destroy the major opposition parties in the country, while the opposition and population smile for their last freedom photos in arrogance.

The question will remain, how much will the vote in 2019 mean if the economy is in the hands of an ANC EFF coalition?

DA might stumble over the most brilliant trap in history.

The sudden calmness of the radical EFF should have ring loud bells in their ears; the sudden appointment of major candidate by the ANC against the wish of the voters should have been red flags and millions of questions. All communist driven political parties are well known for their ability to allow the opposition to under estimate them, and so I think the DA did.
After a successful campaign build on defeating the ANC at all cost, with certain lies that the DA turned into unobtainable promises, and the EFF skilfully sidestepped coalitions with the DA, they the DA will have to watch their step as they stumble between the obstacles that they have created. Promises was made to the electorate to, for instance remove E-tolls when they get into power in Johannesburg and Tshwane, while they were well aware that the local municipality does not have the authority to do so, they were well aware or at least should have been aware that the E-tolls are governed by national government and not local government. Many unsuspected voters voted for change, change promised by those who were well aware that they have no power to change it, many of the working class stand tirelessly waiting to cast their vote, a vote against corruption and e-tolls, and many will be disgruntled by the fact that neither the corruption nor the e-tolls might be removed.

The DA was well aware that the fight against corruption is a fight against powerful individuals and their current jobs, a fight against COSATO and all his allies. The time has now arrived to eradicate the corruption and stop the E-Tolls, to prove that their election campaign was not based on a Cape Town model only, but on a South African reality. The EFF has seen through the smoke screen of the DA, they have seen through the peephole of a possible collapse of the main opposition and skilfully aligned themselves in a neutral, but powerful negotiation position, a position that will allow them to pick the crumps of the main table and change these crumps into bread for their political future. The EFF has set the trap, and are now patiently waiting for the main opposition to stumble, before they will change their vote against them (DA) to make the Metros ungovernable. It seems as if Julius did not set his targets on the municipal election but rather on the 2019 national elections, an election where he will need to prove that the main opposition is no longer the people who know how to govern.

I cannot see how the DA will be able to govern successfully while they are held hostage by the EFF and COSATO, I cannot see how they will remain able to clean these Metros up while they need to please unions who will strike and destroy the operations in any Metro, if one of their corrupt brother are removed from any position of power. With one of the most comprehensive traps ever set and one the most powerful combinations executing the operation of the trap, the DA will be held responsible for any lie that they have promised, for any misrepresentation that they have uttered in arrogance.  Through the history from main opposition of the old National party through the Zille era to the now Maimane era proved that their analytical skills and ability to predict movements from communist driven parties like the ANC and SACP were always lacking. The analytical skill failure was never due to a lack of intelligent information, but the untouchable arrogance with which they perceive the facts and blindly scattered for crisis management solutions. The ANC and the EFF are well aware of these problems within the ranks of the DA, they are well aware that the main opposition will only realize that they have trapped them after the so called “fat lady” started to sing. 

The sudden calmness of the radical EFF should have ring loud bells in their ears; the sudden appointment of major candidate by the ANC against the wish of the voters should have been red flags and millions of questions. All communist driven political parties are well known for their ability to allow the opposition to under estimate them, and so I think the DA did.

The question that probably dances on every reader lips at this stage will be; why will the ANC allow the lost in votes and power to get the opposition to under estimate their abilities? I will attempt to answer it as follow. During the twenty odd years that the ANC been in power in South Africa they never managed to overcome the two third majority, enabling them to change the free country to a  captive country, the DA and the opposition parties managed to constrain them from this ultimate goals. If they can expose the DA and break their stronghold on perfect governance the picture might change dramatically, with the help of the current EFF and self-claimed supporters of the ANC the final assault on opposition parties can be delivered. We must keep in mind that the EFF would have played ball with the ANC if they were to remove Jacob Zuma, Jacob Zuma that managed to destabilize the country and its economy far better than any of his predecessors, the President that came the closest to collapse the capitalist system in South Africa. The same Jacob Zuma that allowed the DA to run an election campaign against him and the ANC and not for what they stand or believe in, who proved that he can play the role of destroyer while the population blamed it on his intelligence and not his ability to overturn the capitalist system.  With his closely knitted friendship of communist China and first hand advice on destroying capitalism, with a parliament of freedom fighters and the previously known “rooi gevaar” all on his side, South Africa might have the red dot of the assassins on his chest, we might be lined up for the final assault against capitalism and freedom.
We all hope that these predictions is unfounded, that the ANC and their communist allies are suffering from intellectual failure, that the ANC are only holding onto Zuma because they need more unlawful contracts. We need to hope that they are not playing a master chess game against us, but rather that they really fell into the trap of arrogance.

The misconception of governments

After all these questions it seems that government remains above the law, the laws that they passed to control their employers.

Large so called democratic governments and political parties have the misconception that they are the masters and the electorate and taxpayers are their subjects, subjects that must endure and accept any decision from the elected and paid government, in exchange for their only democratic right, their vote. Ironically in the same country the labour laws define the employer, as the person who pay the salaries by employing employees to fulfill  certain functions, it also define the employee as the person receiving compensation for work done. According to this definition the elected democratic government become the employee and the voters and taxpayers the employer, the newly government should then have an employment contract from the citizen stating their duties and mandates to fulfill the labour requirements of the same country.

The first question that start peeping through the loopholes of governance and the same laws that the governments implemented, should then be, is the labour laws legal and if so why are so many excluded from these laws? Secondly, can the citizens then follow the labour law prescriptions by calling the contract to end, if the employee does not perform their duties, and does the government (employee) have the right to appeal it before an organization like the CCMA? Surely the employer have the right and the duty to ensure the survival of their companies in this case their countries, and surely the contract of employment give the employer then the right to break the contract with prescribed compensation.

The next question must then be about the mandate that voters give the political parties to represent them; does this mandate include the right to appoint any person in the party to lead us? Is it legal to ask voters to vote for promises instead of manifesto? Does a political party then have the right to ask voters to only vote for them to diminish another party, and if so, do I then have the right as an employer to employ someone for the sole purpose of pushing another employer out, without any repercussions of the labour law?

The question does government have the right to own property and taxable companies as an employee with a five year mandate? Taxable companies that pay their own salaries, tax that make them a partner in the employee employer relationship? These questions cannot be readily answered, it might contravene the very laws that government implemented to govern their employers.

The election campaign of any political party, competing to be employed can be seen as an interview, an interview to persuade the employers to vote for their employment, does this mean that any false information and or promises laid before the employer can be seen as fraudulent and lead to immediate dismissal as stipulated in the labour act?

Obviously a country cannot be run within the labour laws set out by the government if it applied to them, so how do they expect the companies who contribute to the micro and macro economy to run according to these laws? The very same companies who create employment and tax revenue to pay the salaries of the lawmakers, lawmakers that restrict the ability in the name of human rights, human rights that the same lawmakers do not recognise during the run for government.

The last questions that I need to ask need to be answered to the background of government stipulation of no work no pay, does this means that the taxpayer can withhold his taxes if government does not deliver? Can we withhold our taxes if the police do not serve the people?

After all these questions it seems that government remains above the law, the laws that they passed to control their employers.

Are liberals evil or just ignorant

The targets of communism and the role of the liberal to achieve it, remain one of the open questions of the century. 
Vladimir Lenin said “People that promote communism are not all communists, but useful liberals”.  

To investigate the role of liberals and the targets of communism we need to go back to the time of Karl Marx, investigating what happen to communism after the death of Marx, and the birth of the Vabian socialist movement that started thereafter.  The major difference between the two were their approach on spreading communism, Karl Marx use the radical militant approach, where military force was of essence, while the Vabian movement concentrated on an internal method forcing world government to fall from within.

The genius methods that they used are described in the book “The Naked Communist, by W Clean Skousin, published in 1958” let’s first look at a few of the aims and targets of communism out of this book. I have selected a few targets to show the current direction.

Target 28Eliminate prayers in schools, by sensitising the difference between churches and government

Target 40: Discredit the family as an institution, encourage promiscuity and easy divorce

Target 17Get control of the schools, using them as transmission belts to promote communism, by getting control of teacher associations

Target 18Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them censorship and a violation of the freedom of speech and the freedom of the press

Target 25: break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography in books, magazines and motion pictures

Target 26Present homosexuality, degeneration and promiscuity as normal, natural and healthy

Target 20 and 21infiltrate the press, gain control of key positions in radio, television and motion pictures

Target 27: Infiltrate churches, replacing “revealed religion” with “social religion”. Discredit the Bible.

Communism preaches that they will take from the rich to give to the poor, the ability of equality for all, they preach freedom, but are this freedom really free? This question must be asked against the background of large communist governments enslaving their population to serve the state, against the background where citizens of communist countries are threaten with imprisonment and even execution if they refuse the enslavement. We need to ask the questions of the paper perfect system against the background where more than 135milj people had to die for the ideology, where if you include the legalization of the abortion drive this figure are well into the 500milj. 

They hang the carrot of equality and enrichment in-front of the poverty stricken people of a country, preaching that their circumstances are caused by the supremacy of the rich. In theory these promises and fault diagnoses of the current system make sense to the people, opening the soapbox politicians to increase their own power in exchange for the economy of the country.

For the sake of this article I am not going to dwell too deep into the argumentative system of communism, but rather on the original question.

To come back to the original question, are the liberal thinking politicians evil, or just ignorant? This question can only be answered by more questions.

Are they perhaps blinded by the promise of equality and a better life for all, without blinking an eye towards the big picture?
Are they driven by the hunger for power, power at all cost, even at the cost of their voters?
If these two questions are answered, the question of evil or ignorant might just be cleared up for us.

Your comments on this article will be appreciated, and considered while my investigation into the cause of social collapse and deterioration of our value systems continue.

EFF not sellouts, insists Malema

Parliament – Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema on Tuesday insisted he was not a sellout, saying their collaboration with the Democratic Alliance (DA) was done solely to keep the ruling party out of power in the country’s key metros.
“Now people say to us why do you vote for white people when you say you are fighting white monopoly capital? Hey, the country is collapsing. I cannot keep on saying we are fighting white monopoly capital because after defeating white monopoly capital there will not be a country to inherit,” Malema said during an urgent debate on the recent local government elections which saw the African National Congress (ANC) unseated from power in the key metros of Tshwane, Johannesburg and Nelson Mandela Bay.

“You [ANC] would have collapsed this country, so this is an emergency. We had to pause and rescue this country first and continue to fight against white supremacy and against white monopoly capital so that when we defeat white monopoly capital, then we will find a country called South Africa,” Malema said.
During the first meeting of the new Johannesburg council on Monday, which saw opposition parties defeat the ANC to take control of the metro, EFF supporters protested their party’s position, claiming their party were sellouts.
Eralier at the debate DA leader Mmusi Maimane warned the ANC that the arrogance of its leaders had led to the party’s poor showing at the polls in the country’s metros.
Maimane said he had some sober advice for the ruling party. “To my ANC colleagues on this side of the house, the lesson of this election is very clear – never take voters for granted,” he said.
“The voters are watching us and they will throw us out of office if we disrespect them.”
Maimane took a swipe at President Jacob Zuma, who during campaigning prior to the August local government polls, claimed that the ANC would rule until Jesus came.
“And so I say to my DA colleagues in the 33 governments we now lead: ‘Let us never arrogantly claim that we have a divine right to rule, or that we will govern until Jesus comes back. Let us govern with grace and humility. Let us listen to the people who put us into power’.”
The opposition party leader said the recent polls showed the country was at a “tipping point”, bringing with it the realignment of politics.
“The age of the arrogant dominant party is over. A new dawn of vibrant, multi-party politics is upon us.”

Zuma Zoeloe kind

Zuma Zoeloe kind

en as jy was ‘n Zoeloe kind, onder Koning Dingaan
sou jy dan ook sy beeste steel en hom vertel dit het vergaan
sou jy dan sy beeste aan die boer verkoop, geldjie in jou sak insteek
en vir die koning se die boere het jou sleg verneek
deur die beeste van jou trop te steel
terwyl jy oor die geldjie in jou sakkie streel
Zuma Zoeloe-kind waar het jou mamma jou ge-vind

hoe sou jy dan na koning bees kon kyk
terwyl jy net jou goue sakkie wou ver-ryk
hoe lank sou dit wees
voor die koning jou kon lees
voor die impi sou kon sien
dat jy slegs jou eie sakkie dien
Zuma Zoeloe kind waar het jou mamma jou gevind

hoe lank sou die goud in jou sakkie le
voor die koning dit terug wou he
hoeveel bees sou jy moes steel
om Nkandla in te deel
voor die impi jou sou vang
en jou teen die rotse oor die see laat hang
Zuma Zoeloe kind waar het jou mamma jou gevind

sou jy in Dingaan se tyd ook moes vlug
en oor jou skouer skree dit was Jan se klug
verbanneling, van jou eie land
hier in die Zoeloe kant
sou vele vrou jou hart moes streel
terwyl jy ‘n nuwe nasie teel
Zuma Zoeloe kind waar het jou mamma jou gevind

Malema outplay Maimane

Article from the Citizen newspaper

EFF chief Malema leaves DA leader Mmusi Maimane looking flat-footed. It’s a bit like watching two swordsmen, one with a rapier, the other with a cricket bat. The latter might strike an incapacitating blow, but only if he doesn’t bleed out first.

After weeks of arm wrestling, marathon negotiations and vaulting ambition, the first round of SA’s local government Olympics draws to a close. Now comes the really tough part, complete with mudslinging and backstabbing, as sworn foes try to nudge one another aside, jostling to retain a toehold on the winner’s podium.
In all of this horse trading, EFF leader Julius Malema has again shown his tactical genius. The EFF won’t enter into any formal coalition but it will not, at least initially, vote against the DA in the minority-government metros, thus depriving the ANC of control. So Malema screws the ANC for not dumping President Jacob Zuma, as it had demanded, while “not getting into bed with the better devil” of the DA.
Malema keeps his hands ideologically clean but on the levers of power. He runs rings around his opponents and plays the media like a fiddle. This week’s EFF briefing on its coalition plans was held in the dusty veld overlooking the shanties of Alex.
The equivalent DA press conference was in a Sandton hotel. Or as more than one journalist promptly described it, a “swish”, “swanky” hotel, drawing an obliging contrast of the salt of the earth EFF versus the effete, out-of-touch DA.
Malema leaves DA leader Mmusi Maimane looking flat-footed. It’s a bit like watching two swordsmen, one with a rapier, the other with a cricket bat. The latter might strike an incapacitating blow, but only if he doesn’t bleed out first.
A largely uncritical public swallows this showmanship whole, exactly as it is served up by a largely gullible media that treats Malema less as a politician to be interrogated than as a celebrity to be promoted. It’s a problem, also, because neither the ANC, nor the DA, appears to comprehend the ruthlessness of Malema, as well as his indifference to the political niceties that they subscribe to.
Business Day’s Natasha Marrian describes how Maimane “waffled” in answer to a question about DA willingness to remove Die Stem from the national anthem, one of Malema’s non-negotiable demands for coalition. Malema earlier told journalists Maimane had agreed and confided to him that “having Die Stem … was like having Jewish people singing Nazi songs”. Maimane, says Marrian, “issued a thin denial”.
“It was an awkward moment.” Maimane and his supporters are understandably delighted at the DA’s potentially game-changing successes. But the ease at which the EFF has bested them in the post-electoral negotiations should be a matter of concern.
And there is still the ANC’s reaction to come. When it emerges from licking its wounds it will be to deploy every mechanism that a powerful government has at its fingertips – national budgets, the public service, the power of legislation and demarcation – to reclaim control.
