Winnie Mandela: the Democratic Alliance (DA) is Abusing African National Congress (ANC) Revered Struggle History

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

 Winnie Mandela: the Democratic Alliance (DA) is Abusing African National Congress (ANC) Revered Struggle History

Orlando West, Soweto – Mrs. Winnie Mandela has not issued media statements for some time. She broke her silence today, as she feels that she has to correct the manipulation and distortion of South Africa’s history by the Democratic Alliance (DA).

Mrs. Mandela accepts that the DA’s Mmusi Maimane gave an ANC speech, referring to Maimane’s public address on July 30, 2016, on the eve of the ANC’s Siyanqoba Rally at Ellis Park in Johannesburg. Mrs. Madikizela-Mandela asserts that if one deleted every reference to the DA, it would have been an ANC speech.

This time however, Mmusi Maimane, Helen Zille and their DA have gone too far. It is unbelievable that the DA sings ANC freedom songs that come from the camps of MK in exile, composed by members of MK in difficult times in exile outside South Africa. To add insult to injury, the DA shouts ANC and MK slogans. How is it possible that the Democratic Alliance shout “Viva, DA, Viva”, when it has its history and roots firmly anchored in apartheid and racial discrimination?

That very slogan, “Viva ANC, Viva!” was banned in apartheid South Africa. When Mrs. Mandela turned up at the Robben Island prison to visit her husband, Nelson Mandela, she was more often then not turned back, because she wore clothes that portrayed ANC colours and insignia and gave the clenched fist salute, shouting, “:Viva ANC, Viva!”

The DA’s abuse of the ANC’s revered struggle history and its highly respected leaders like Nelson Mandela, shows an unbelievable insensitivity and disrespect. The late Nelson Mandela never wanted to have his name prostituted. Now, he cannot defend himself to correct the abusive plagiarism of his name. In fact, Nelson Mandela defined the DA as “a party of white bosses and black stooges”.

Neither Helen Zille, nor Mmusi Maimane and their DA have ever been quoted by the ANC or the PAC. Why does the DA never mention its own founding fathers? Why would the DA go out of its way to refer to other political parties’ historic leaders? Is the DA hiding its foundation and history? Similar to the old apartheid strategies of ‘Strategic Communication (Strat-Com)’, the DA seems to use the same propagandistic tactics of “70% facts and 30% fiction”, to particularly confuse and mislead the hopeful electorate. Mrs. Mandela was a victim of apartheid’s Stratcom. She knows their evil tactics. They deliberately sow confusion that could lead to new blood shedding. Considering the DA’s questionable modus operandi, Mrs. Mandela is led to believe that the DA is morally, ethically and intellectually bankrupt.

Thus, Mrs. Mandela implores the DA to stop plagiarising the ANC’s rich history and its intellectual property that includes its songs and respective nuances – rather the DA should be truthful to itself and call on its roots that grow from an apartheid establishment.

End.

How South Africa’s Economy Was Lost And Sold To The Highest Bidder

By Udo W. Froese: non-institutionalised, independent political- and socio-economic analyst and published columnist, based in Johannesburg, South Africa.

One of the center points at the Codesa negotiations focused on the new South Africa’s Ministry of Finance and the Reserve Bank. The incoming ANC-led government was conned out of the country’s finances from the onset.

The international West’s covert backers of apartheid South Africa and their lobbyists advised the ANC leadership during the Codesa negotiations, that South Africa is not ready for the cabinet position of the Minister of Finance. Nor is it ready to deliver the Governor of the Reserve Bank.

Why would those interests con the ANC team? Was it not to retain their own people in those positions? It also meant that the new, democratically elected ANC government would not be in charge of the government’s finances. The incoming ANC would certainly be disempowered.

Retired non-executive director of the South African Reserve Bank, Stephen Goodson, sums up the misleading advice the ANC received from so-called bank-experts, “Although the Freedom Charter of 26 June 1955 states that the banks and monopoly industry shall be transferred to the ownership of the people as a whole, this was obviously little more than rhetoric. The African National Congress was obliged to accept the existing financial paradigm, as they were unaware of any other alternative.”

Regarding the foreign Western and local apartheid interests in South and Southern Africa, Stephen Goodson had this to say, “Big business, led by Rothschild point men, Harry Oppenheimer and Anthony Rupert, provided the main impetus for installing a Black puppet government, as it would greatly enhance their markets both, locally and overseas and particularly, in Africa. One of the first acts of the ANC-led government was to reduce company taxation by a third and to permit large corporations to relocate their head offices and assets overseas.”

A case in point is the transfer of the diamond stockpile of DeBeers. During recalled, former president Thabo Mbeki’s reign and with the full assistance of the Mbeki government, DeBeers transferred its stockpile from South Africa to London. South Africa was left the poorer.

“The ANC was set up at Codesa. They thought the country was being handed over to them on a platter. But, they were in fact just being used by big corporate interests,” Goodson further explains.

All efforts were made to bully the ANC into submission. “There was a media perception that tribal violence was putting the ANC under pressure. But, the script had been planned years before by the ‘Council on Foreign Relations’ (CFR) and other similar organisations,” Goodson alleges, based on his research. The CFR is a Washington based think-tank and publisher.

In the years during the negotiations at Codesa, the violence in South Africa’s black living areas was viciously increased. The weekly newspaper, “Mail & Guardian (M&G)” described that urban warfare as “black-on-black violence”, quickly taken over as such by the entire media. Years later, apartheid super-spy Craig Williamson admitted at the “Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC)”, that the apartheid Military Intelligence (MI) and its covert operations, Civil Cooperation Bureau (CCB), had orchestrated the urban warfare between the ANC and Inkatha.

Was the deal negotiated at Codesa then a non-deal in bad faith? Goodson sums it up, “The non-deal has created a situation of economic enslavement, which will persist way beyond 2022.”

“The banks continue to exploit the masses through usury and excessive taxation. The local cartel is an important cog of the international banking cartel.”

South Africa’s finance ministry seems to refuse to protect the nation against foreign meddling in the country’s finances and economy. The ratings agencies and their hit men are ever present, although they have yet to make their main strike (led by Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan) with the West’s International Monetary Fund (IMF) and its “restructuring plan”. The ratings agencies continue to wield undue influence with their often recklessly irresponsible assessments.”

Just like his predecessor, Trevor Manuel and the former Reserve Bank Governor Tito Mboweni, the unqualified Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan seems to have feet of smoldering ashes, not even clay. Is the incumbent resting his feet in criminal activities? Why did South Africa’s media and Gordhan’s network of backers attack the investigators, the NPA, when it investigated his activities?

Why is it conveniently overlooked that under Gordhan the West’s IMF will enter South Africa to dictate its “restructuring plan”? How would that affect South Africa’s BRICS membership?

Political analyst, Tshepo Kgadima, refers below to the following analysis of the ‘Financial Intelligence Centre Bill’, which was first published in ‘The New Age’ on 6 July 2016.

“A draconian bank bill might soon be signed into law, which would be equal to financial tyranny. The lack of awareness and publicity, the absence of public debate around the Financial Intelligence Centre Amendment Bill (FICAB) allows Gordhan to execute what he does with impunity.”

The FICAB provision terms “Risk Management and Compliance Programme”, transfers power and authority to pass punitive sanction such as closing of a bank account and/or termination of services, from a transparent independent judicial process into the hands of what is defined as accountable institutions, i.e. banks, insurers, auditors, lawyers.

Once, FICAB has been signed into law, there will be no fair reasoning between the banks and the account holders. In other words, people will be judged without any fair hearing. The majority of the population will have hardly any further access to capital, loans and other bank services.

If South Africans would be informed and able to participate in the debate about the banking cartel’s plans, structures and strategies, they would realise the frightening speed, “banking and financial institutions have gone ahead to profile and take punitive sanction of terminating services and closing bank accounts of clients using the new FICAB provisions.”

This draconian legislation will transfer absolute power and authority to the banking institutions, closing accounts of clients without transparent legal due process and recourse.

The above-mentioned is a form of financial anti-democratic destabilisation. In fact, FICAB would further lead to capital flight, attacks on the value of the Rand and massive bankruptcies.

Analysts and economists such as Tshepo Kgadima condemn the new FICA law as “financial tyranny and assault on the civil liberties, as enshrined in Chapter two of the Bill of Rights of the Constitution.”

It is hoped that President Zuma has been informed about the new FICAB bill and the suffering that FICAB would cause the majority of the population. It would be equal to rule of fear and terrorising the nation. Hopefully, President Zuma will not sign that draconian Amendment Bill into Law.

As a democratically elected head-of-state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces, it is President Zuma’s implicit duty to protect the nation. Local and foreign interests with their hidden agendas should not be able to dictate financial and economic policies.

In all fairness, it is important that the NPA investigates Gordhan and charges him. If the late, former President Nelson Mandela and the incumbent, President Jacob Zuma had their days in court, why should Gordhan not be tried? Is he above the law? The contrary is the case. He should be given the same space to defend, or hang himself. Is Gordhan immune to any investigations?

There are tens of thousands of highly qualified indigenous Black South Africans, who would be fit for Gordhan’s job. They are advocates, engineers, chartered accountants and scientists. What is Gordhan’s financial background? Who makes up his lobby group, guiding and protecting him? On whose authority is appointed Gordhan acting with impunity?

Why does it seem impossible for the ANC-led government to appoint a qualified finance minister outside the corporate banking cartel and its lobby groups, who understands the world of finance?

A solution could be to appoint a focused and respected financial guru, who would stay away from the West’s Bretton Woods Institutions. South Africa is a member of BRICS. The new minister of finance has to work with BRICS. A new finance minister would have to assist to decolonize South Africa and the SADC.

Theresa May: UK’s next kosher PM

Rehmat's World

Theresa May is holding a poster above, saying: I’m a Jew.

Without its Jews, Britain wouldn’t be Britain – Theresa May, British Home Secretary said in January 2015.

Meet Theresa May, your new Islamophobe prime minister – Craig John Murray, former British ambassador in Uzbekistan, said on July 3, 2016.

Theresa May will always support Israel – Israel daily Ynet.

Announcing her candidacy to Tory party leadership (to become UK’s next prime minister) on June 30, May gloated over imprisonment and finally deportation of Palestinian activist Omar Mahmoud Othman (Abu Qatada) to Jordan in July 2013. British Organized Jewry had declared him threat to British Jewish community.

Abu Qatada spent, over a thirteen year period, a total of nine years in jail in England despite never being charged with any crime. It is not just that he was not convicted. He was never charged. Nine years, think about it. In all that…

Soweto Youth: From Hewers Of Wood And Carriers Of Water To Engineers, Scientists And Businessmen- And Women

“For anyone to claim that apartheid South Africa’s Bantu education was better than today’s education under the government of the elected African National Congress (ANC) demonstrates a disregard and denial of history. Bantu education never produced engineers, scientists, and agriculturalists. It delivered a handful of doctors, nurses and teachers. The big majority had to make do with becoming hewers of wood and carriers of water, petrol attendants, gardeners and kitchen maids. Apartheid designed education on job reservation”, one of the former leaders of the Soweto Students Representative Council (SSRC) of 1976 explained.

 

He pointed out, “For Democratic Alliance leader, Mmusi Maimane, to say that apartheid’s Bantu education was better than that of today under the ruling ANC, is the lowest form of politicking. The students involved in the Soweto riots of 1976 know better. We were there. We organised against apartheid’s dictate to be taught in Afrikaans, the language of the oppressor.”

 

“We accept that the tuitional results are shocking and that our youth is not being prepared to make its mark in South Africa’s exclusive and hostile economy, where the majority holds only 3% of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) and 97% remains in the hands of the owners of the economy. Our youth is uninvolved with little access to a national education system. The youth has however no choice, but to get involved in the formation of a movement towards economic participation.”

 

At this point in time the country produces an oversupply of a semi- and uneducated youth with no access to the economy.

 

“The ANC-led government’s biggest mistake was to abolish colleges, technicons, nursing- and teachers’ colleges. A former minister of education, Kader Asmal, joined learning institutes with already overcrowded universities. What did the former minister of education, Kader Asmal, and his cohorts smoke, when they destroyed the countries educational system? They should have been developed as foundations to build on. Why was the local Black youth marginalized?” A senior ANC National Executive Council (NEC) member commented.

 

“Prior to 1994, civil society had made education part of the national debate. But, as soon as South Africa had achieved its democratic independence, that debate was no longer encouraged. From then onward, education became a matter of technocrats, producing green and white papers with a few participants recruited from nowhere”; he explained the phenomena of the country’s educational decline.

 

As a British educated intellectual, how was it possible under the watch of Sussex scholar, recalled president Thabo Mbeki, that South Africa’s education was not transformed into a solid educational system, equaling that of Zimbabwe and Germany? How is South Africa to benefit from its “democracy”?

 

South Africa needs not look further than across the border to Zimbabwe. The United Nations (UN) accepted Zimbabwe as a leading educational model. Why not apply their system to South Africa?

 

Prime Minister Robert Mugabe reformed Zimbabwe’s educational system in 1981.

 

“By New Year’s day in 1981, Zimbabwe boasted free primary school education for all students as well as guaranteed admission to secondary school for all who qualified.”

 

“Mugabe had city boundaries reshaped to ensure multiracial political representation and replaced Whites with educated Blacks in key positions relating to educational institutions.”

 

Meanwhile however, South Africa seems to look to fellow Commonwealth member, Australia, for its failed educational system.

 

In the online publication, “The Conversation – Africa Pilot” under the title, “Australian Education System failing kids”, a host of failures are highlighted as: (a)“Australian Teens falling behind, as others race ahead”; (b) “Declining participation in science and mathematics”; (c) “Australian Education is monolingual”; (d) “International and migrant student actually raise standards, not lower them”; (e) “You can’t have quality education without quality teachers” and (f) “Early learning participation is among the lowest in the developed world.”

 

“There is also growing evidence to suggest that a segregated schooling system – for example, socio-economically, or academically selective schools – is counterproductive and restricts social mobility. High performing countries have school systems on a far more level playing field than Australia.”

 

“Australia needs a long-term plan across education sectors: from early childhood, to schools, universities and the TAFE, which includes plans for supporting and strengthening teacher education in all those sectors.”

 

The publication also comments, “Australia needs a louder public conversation about its education and lobbying to shift how they value and invest in education.”

 

“When Germany was shocked by its first performance on the 2000 PISA assessment, it started a national conversation that saw education on the front pages of newspapers, radio- and television current affairs programmes for the next two years. Germany’s education has been improving ever since.”

 

If Australia, like South Africa, wants to build a strong and competitive economy, it needs fewer front-page articles on budget cuts ad more on reform and investment in education. However, if South Africa would adopt Australia’s educational model, it would marginalize local Black youth again.

 

What motivated South Africa to take Australia and the Commonwealth’s educational model up, whilst there are countries that excel in education? Was this part of the secret Sunset Clauses too, to ensure the failure of national education in South Africa? Was South Africa set up to fail again?

 

Obviously, the children suffer the consequences. Compared to the elitist private schools, underfunding and bad administration in public schools retain economic and class discrimination. Disadvantaged children will again fall by the wayside in the country’s restructuring of the economy. The old status quo is cunningly maintained.

 

South Africa’s Democratic Teachers’ Union (SADTU) and related organisations stopped debating education to focus on collective bargaining. Understandably so. But, education remains top priority. Meanwhile, what happened to the Civics?

 

South Africa remains the only country in the world where the majority of the population does not take a lead in its educational system.

 

Like Germany, South Africa needs a committed broad civil society to debate the standard of the content in the black child’s education, as the majority remains excluded.

Highly respected stalwarts Curtis Nkondo and Fanyana Mazibuko had set an example. Where are South Africa’s teachers today? Why are the teachers not addressing the system and oversee that the system is working? The public debate on education in South Africa in 2016 is postponed. It will come back to bite, more particularly the economic sector.

 

 

 

End.

 

 

The Pattern Behind The Destabilisation Of South And Southern Africa

Do White Hall and the White House allow sovereign nations, more particularly, Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa as (BRICS) members to govern themselves?

It has become crucially important for BRICS member countries to understand their new alliance and its global impact also on the value of the US-Dollar. They will pay the highest price for their new working initiative.

Cases in point are Iraq, Libya, Syria, Iran, Brazil, Ukraine and Russia where the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) and US-UK-Western military forces invaded and committed “humanitarian bombing”, found no “weapons of mass destruction”, killing tens-of-thousands of civilians, noted as “collateral damage”.

A globalised system of a “new economic world order” shows no mercy in its global conquests. It rules with fear as it creates chaos, enforcing new balance of powers.

The same forces have come out in full force to destroy BRICS for it never to rebuild itself. The enemy behind the coup against South Africa’s African National Congress-led (ANC) government is a small group of foreign and local architects operating from the shadows.

If you sup with the devil, use a very long spoon, is an old adage.

A long standing contributor to this column, a well-known and senior ANC National Executive (NEC) and National Working Committee (NWC) member, who reliably speaks to this writer under the condition of anonymity, asks, “Do foreign NGOs, foundations, the ratings agencies Standard & Poor, Moody’s and Fitch, their economic hitmen, certain members of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE), corporate lobbies, the corporate media, local academia, as well as the major security companies target both, Brazil and South Africa to force a regime change? They claim to be philanthropists, yet are dangerous wolves in sheepskins.”

The above-mentioned ANC member assured this writer that most of the movement’s leadership, its branches and the security cluster are well aware of a planned coup unfolding.

President Zuma understood this development. He realised that he had to rebuild and strengthen the ANC branches countrywide to protect him and the ANC against outside machinations. The branches have a major influence on leadership and government. In fact, that structure works against foreign interests to change leadership in South Africa. Zuma understands the power of the ANC branches. The ANC structures protected him against the recent, similar coup in Brazil.

Are South- and Southern Africans currently conditioned to accept terror, a high inflation rate and a collapsing infrastructure to become part of their lives?

Local corporate mainstream media seems to be doing its propaganda job, more often than not misrepresenting the daily realities, creating fear and insecurity.

The US and UK embassies announced that they have “information of imminent terror attacks during the month of Ramadan on up-market shopping malls in Johannesburg and Cape Town. The US Embassy spokesperson announced to have shared the information with the South African security structures”. Both diplomatic missions declared that they have already informed their countries and tourism industries of such “terror attacks”, therefore, cautioned them not to visit South Africa.

The Minister for State Security of South Africa, David Mahlobo, however assured South Africans that there is no immediate threat.

“Are those noises made to frighten foreign tourism off and collapse a booming tourism industry”, the ANC NEC NWC member asks, “or is this done to bring in US-AfriCom forces to protect their citizens, visiting South Africa?”

Where is this “terror” coming from? Who really would sponsor a Kenya-style “Al Shabaab-“ terrorism in South Africa? Who recruits those mercenaries, masquerading as “ideological warriors, fighting for their Islam” to execute a “colour revolution” and force a “regime change”? On whose behalf?

The years 2001, 2002 and 2003 had already set a similar pattern, when the Rand currency collapsed to R13.84 per USD1. South Africa was hit by a financial crisis. The CEO of the South African Chamber of Business (SACOB), Kevin Wakeford, blew the whistle.

Author, established investigative journalist, Barry Sergeant, documented in his book, “The Assault On The Rand – Kevin Wakeford And The Battle To Save A Currency”, on the attack of the Rand in 2002/3, “It was a crisis of confidence in the system for the consumer and for the investor. Now, if you consider Argentina at that very time, people were literally storming the banks. The Argentine currency was collapsing. In South Africa a group of right-wingers were arrested during that time, but post facto. I’m talking post-December, they were amassing weapons. What gave them the confidence to amass weapons? Were their plans linked to the inevitable socio-economic fallout?”

Sergeant writes further, “Wakeford had received information that pointed to a pattern and required a comprehensive commission of inquiry to uncover what had already taken place in the currency markets.”

Now in pre-election time in 2016, South Africa undergoes a similar pattern of destabilisation – mass lobbying through NGOs, foreign foundations, academia, big business and the corporate media to bring President Jacob Zuma down, at the same time destroying the ANC – hashtags made the rounds: #zumamustfall; #feesmustfall; #servicedelivery; #zuptasmustfall and others. The social media made its mark too.

In addition, the foreign private ratings agencies, Standard & Poor, Moody’s and Fitch downgrade the Rand currency to eventually reduce it to “junk status”. The currency hovers around ZAR15 per USD1. Naturally, it will have a negative impact on food- and fuel prices that would affect the poor and middle classes the hardest. Empty stomachs and fear will escalate destabilisation.

Earlier, Marikana seemed to have failed to ignite unrests and a so-called “Arab Spring” to enforce “regime change”. Was Marikana sheer incidental, or covertly planned chaos?

The above results in nations distrusting themselves, turning against themselves, becoming victims of xenophobia, terrorism and polarisation.

Former non-executive director of South Africa’s Reserve Bank, Stephen Goodson reflects in his book, “Inside the South African Reserve Bank – Its Origins and Secrets Exposed”, “Prime Minister of Canada, William Lyon Mackenzie-King (1874 – 1950), warned that unless the issuance of currency was under the direct control of government, “all talk of sovereignty, of parliament and of democracy”, is idle talk”.

Black and White co-existed since the advent of democracy in 1994. Concerted efforts to build a rainbow nation have been made. To achieve that, Mandela became the leading architect to establish national reconciliation and nation building.

Meanwhile, it has become quite clear, that dark forces focus to polarise both, Black and White, as well as Black and Black. The old dirty trick of divide-and-rule is being implemented. Those same forces make sure that national reconciliation will fall apart. Working hard at polarisation has disrupted that.

Who drives those multiple strategies to eventually achieve the total dustbowl? Whoever planned to collapse South- and Southern Africa, planned to re-conquer this region on their own terms. This is extremely dangerous. It is evil.

End.

South Africa’s African National Congress (ANC) and President Zuma Rule Despite Relentless Attacks From Corporate Platforms

South Africa’s owners of the economy, academia, media and heads of civil society circulated before the ruling ANC’s National Executive Committee meeting this weekend, starting on May 27, 2016, that its president and head-of-state, Jacob G. Zuma, would be asked on Sunday, May 29, 2016, to step down immediately.

This will however, not happen. President Zuma will finish his term of office when the next elective ANC Conference in December 2017 takes place. Zuma being recalled, or pushed out of his position and the ANC, is not likely to be part of the ANC NEC agenda this weekend.

The above-mentioned have gone out of their ways to force President Zuma’s early retirement from office, building their attempts of character assassinating him up to the ANC NEC’s gathering this weekend. But, all their efforts to sink President Zuma and collapse the ANC will come to nothing, as those capitalist forces do not understand the movement and its history.

Meanwhile, the forthcoming local government elections are under threat of being hijacked. At worst, this could lead to a split of the ruling ANC.

All political parties campaign for as many votes, as they can muster, be it local government elections, or presidential and national elections. It is common practice that the contesting parties usually have their respective presidents’ faces as the face of the party.

A leading member of the ruling ANC in the local government explained, “The Gauteng Province’s ANC MEC for Human Settlement, Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Mr. Paul Mashathile, plans to have his face copied on to the ballot papers in stead of that of the ANC president. But, President Zuma is still the president of the ANC, head-of-state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces of South Africa. Nonetheless, Mashathile wants this matter to be debated at the ANC NEC’s gathering over this weekend.”

“It would mean that Mashathile attempts to split the ANC into two, with the Democratic Alliance (DA) thus capturing some of the metros in the Gauteng province. Would the ANC NEC have the courage to fire Mashathile at this weekend’s NEC gathering will be seen by Sunday, May 29, 2016? Mashathile clearly works outside the ANC’s framework.”

They observe that State Security Minister David Mahlabo seems to be doing a good job. Particularly his analysis of the threats South Africa is currently debated. There are about 453 foreign non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and additional foreign foundations operating in South Africa. Some 68 NGOs are being registered daily in this country.

At the same time there are “service delivery unrests”, students’ protests and unemployment. A restless youth has been infiltrated and has become the catchment area for opportunistic political anarchists and anti-democrats. They instigate destabilisation and threaten civil war.

It is important to repeat what State Security Minister David Mahlobo observed regarding political and other destabilisation efforts that require “a deep understanding of the actors and tactics involved”:

“State and non-state actors are hard at work in certain parts of the globe, using various role-players to promote their agendas while undermining the national security of various countries. These actors are in the mass (corporate) media, non-governmental and community based organisations, foreign multi-national companies, funders of opposition, religious and student organisations, prominent and influential persons running covert intelligence networks to destabilise other countries, who do not share a similar view as them.”

The role of highly skilled intelligence officers has been raised, as former Mbokodo operatives express their fears: “If covert forces can bring down a president, a head-of-state and commander-in-chief of the armed forces, ANC operatives in South Africa would be compromised. They would be vigorously pursued. Those covert forces would stop at nothing, using every possible means to hunt them down.”

“Those elements have created a type of war with hidden forces using elements across the board, including law enforcement”, they say.

This situation would spin out of control. A colour revolution focusing on total destablisation and regime change would be the result.

“Those enemy agents have infiltrated many levels of government, the ruling party, the judiciary, the armed forces and the police services as well as environmental affairs and other departments. They recruited young people and infiltrated them into environmental affairs to destroy the development of the country. At the moment some of those criminals are dormant. Even the US’s Donald Trump attacked America’s environmental affairs for allowing those criminals for hampering development”, senior Mbokodo operatives pointed out.

“Retired Minister of Intelligence of South Africa, Ronnie Kasrils, took over a working ministry. When he left, his former ministry was about to collapse. In whose interest would Kasrils allow the Intelligence Ministry to collapse?”

Corporatists attempted in their arrogant, heavy-handed way to dictate, who should be South Africa’s minister of finance and who shouldn’t.

The Minister in the President’s Office, Minister Jeff Radebe re-confirmed what Pinky Khoabane documented and Johan Rupert denied.

According to the minister’s confirmation and the mentioned records, Radebe and ANC Treasurer General Dr. Zweli Mkhize met with Neil Coleman of Goldman Sachs, Martin Kingston of Rothschilds, Maria Ramos of Barclays Bank and Bobby Godsell of ‘Leadership South Africa’ to discuss President Jacob Zuma’s appointment of David van Rooyen as the new minister of finance. The group then strongly recommended that their friend and former minister of finance, Pravin Gordhan, should occupy that position.

The South African Revenue Services (SARS) however, seemed to be a thorn in Gordhan’s flesh, as a “rogue unit” had been created under his watch. It has been repeatedly asked, what was the reason for the creation of a “rogue unit”. “It is an unlawful unit, an act of crime, as it is an assault on civil liberties”, former deputy finance minister Jabu Moleketi explained.

Senior ANC NEC members and observers in the financial industry are quite sure, that Gordhan will not survive the above-mentioned criminal scandal. According to those senior members, it is well known that Gordhan has always punched above his weight.

They are also critical of the country having its banknotes printed in Munich, Germany, as it means that South Africa gave up its national sovereignty.

Finally, it seems that the ANC NEC, including the leadership from Kwa-Zulu will support its Jacob Zuma and will see to it that he will serve his full second term as president of the Republic of South Africa.

BRICS Members, Brazil Russia And South Africa Are Trapped Through An Organised Coup – Here Is South Africa’s Situation (Part 3)

Britain’s much hailed, “winds of change” for Africa, as promoted by its Prime Minister Harold MacMillan in 1960 was a deception with serious repercussions for sub-Saharan Africa.

In his research on Rhodesia’s former, late Prime Minister Ian Douglas Smith, in his book: “Rhodesian Prime Minister Ian Smith – The Debunking Of A Myth”, Stephen Mitford Goodson documented, “In the early part of 1960 British Prime Minister Harold MacMillan embarked on a tour of British colonial Africa and announced that the remains of the British Empire were about to be liquidated as a result of a wind of change, which would develop, ultimately – contrary to what he said in the Cape Town parliament on 16 March 1960 – into a “howling tempest”.”

“In 1960, sub-Saharan Africa was one of the most prosperous parts of the world. A net-exporter of food with not one of its colonies burdened by international debt. This pleasant state of affairs would change dramatically over the ensuing years for the worse.”

Today, all former British colonies in Africa are heavily indebted to international Western structures and suffer from structured abject poverty, malnutrition, starvation, destabilisation, civil- and rebel wars, all included in Africa’s economic re-colonization.

Sovereign Zimbabwe still suffers illegal Western sanctions, which have not only affected Zimbabwe, but the Southern African Development Community (SADC) as a whole too. Zimbabwe’s infrastructure has been severely affected and its economy struggles to get off the ground. Character assassination of President Mugabe and his leadership remains the order of the day. The international Western corporate media assists through applying a vicious propaganda campaign.

The “new” South Africa has its challenges too. Foreign foundations, a crude and raw, unbridled capitalism in its worst mutation, where a free market economy remains a mirage, taunting government and ruling party all the time. In stead, an exclusive, oligopolistic cartelized warehouse economy has not changed its modus operandi. However, it accepted the Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) structure, because it could handpick the new BEE participants to control and influence the new elite and government.

Many South Africans lean on government to bring about economic change in these economic dire times. However, when South Africa joined BRICS, the owners of the economy cried foul. Washington dictated AGOA with all its deliberate shortcomings, showing South Africa, like Brazil, the middle finger.

The owners of the economy, like the former apartheid regime, protected cartel forming in almost all industries. The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) remains majority white owned and controlled. The construction industry colluded to defraud government with billions during its building of the infrastructure in the time before the FIFA World Cup in 2010.

South Africa is of geo-strategic value. Hence, a flood of foreign interest groups muscle their way into the country. It has become vulnerable since 1994. The former order and its global network developed a “deep state” to retain control over the current status quo.

The ‘Collins English Dictionary’ defines a “deep state” as a “state within a state”, a “shadow government”, or a “permanent government”, which is a network of individuals, or groups, which are in actual charge of a “national government”. Many “democratically elected governments work as fronts, providing a level of plausible deniability and allowing the “deep state” to operate in secret. On matters of deep political importance, agents of the “deep state” routinely subvert the public machinery of government.

“In contrast to the publicly visible structures of the “nation state”, the phrases “deep state”, “shadow government”, or “permanent government” refer to the faceless influences, who influence and control them from the shadows.”

The above would explain the current political and socio-economic developments in pre-election South Africa, the Gupta case, the anti-Zuma debacle, the threats of civil war from an infantile Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) loudmouth, the re-visit of the “Arms Scandal”, the upcoming claims of corruption and bribery. After the upcoming local government elections the ANC prepares itself for the next conference and eventually the national elections in 2019.

In the above context, the effort to reduce the national support of the ANC to 50%of the voter base and increase the opposition’s votes to 49%, possibly to 51%, seems not far-fetched. Neither would the breaking up of trade unionism in South Africa come as a surprise.

End.
