SA: Zululand's rivers are open sewers: typhoid, e-coli warnings issued
Date Posted: Sunday 03-Feb-2008: www.africancrisis.co.za
Note Kwa-Zulu is an area about the size of Wales. Durban is a major city and port.
KwaZulu-Natal's rivers are being described as little more thanopen sewers.
That big money-spinning event the Dusi Canoe Marathon had many athletes come down with serious stomach ailments this year due to the huge E-coli (human excretia contamination causing typhoid) levels in the river water.
In March 2008, 260 million litres of untreated human sewage was spilled into the sea near Durban, a holiday resort famous for its beaches. anyone for a SWIM? (AS REPORTED in the SA Press.) This is also mainly due to the massive electrical power cuts. Water treatment plants for fresh water and sewage need electricity for the pumps to work properly. So when it backs up. let it go..............
THIS NEVER HAPPENED UNDER THE OLD GOVERNMENT.
Durban scientists say 'several rivers' have been polluted with such dangerously high bacteria levels, from burst sewer lines and illegal dumping, that children are also developing skin diseases from swimming in the polluted water. Durban municipality is considering 'incarcerating' (incinerating?) the 'sewage' in the water -- try and picture that one, folks!
Scientists are monitoring river systems around the province and stern warnings especially of TYPHOID, are now being issued.
Scientist Mark Graham says the 'bugs' found in some of the rivers mean that the province's residents are running the very real risk of contracting human typhoid from the river-water.
Graham's report says 'water quality was found to be poorer within the city than on its outskirts.'
Many canoiests - local and international -- also came down with 'stomach bugs' during the recent world-famous international Dusi Canoe Marathon this year, a canoe race over many kilometres that has been run for many years.
Advance warnings had been issued by local environmentalists to stay away -- but the marathon organisers decided to go ahead with it anyway and foreign participants in particular, not forewarned, had come down with massive cases of 'Dusiguts" last month...
Now they say, the huge money-spinner 'might just have to be called off altogether in future, 'if the E.coli levels are found to be too high."
Durban city says it is 'looking to incinerate some of the sewage in the water...
They also want to 'refurbish old infrastructure as possible solutions to the problem...."

LATEST - A SHOCK FOR THE AFRICAN NATIONAL CONGRESS.
Wellington - A veteran New Zealand anti-apartheid campaigner has rejected a nomination for a prestigious South African award for foreigners, saying he is dismayed over conditions in the country, local media reported on Monday.
John Minto, nominated for a Companion Of OR Tambo Award by a South African government official, asked for the nomination to be withdrawn, the Christchurch Press newspaper said.
"South Africa was the democratic country with so much hope and I think for so many people it's been the deepest of disappointments, and certainly it has been for me," Minto said.
"I'm just deeply dismayed at what's happened," he told the newspaper.
I'm just deeply dismayed at what's happened'
The Tambo award is the highest honour granted to non-South Africans in recognition of friendship, co-operation and support.
Previous recipients include Mahatma Gandhi, Kofi Annan, Salvador Allende and Martin Luther King Junior.
A union organiser, Minto was national co-ordinator of the Halt All Racist Tours movement during the controversial 1981 Springbok rugby tour of New Zealand - when an all-white rugby team representing South Africa was strongly opposed by many New Zealanders.
In an open letter to South African President Thabo Mbeki, Minto blasted the African National Congress government which, he said, had left black South Africans "worse off than they were under (white) minority rule".
"When we protested and marched into police batons and barbed wire here in the struggle against apartheid, we were not fighting for a small black elite to become millionaires," Minto wrote.
"We were fighting for a better South Africa for all its citizens. The faces at the top have changed from white to black, but the substance of change is an illusion," he noted. - Sapa-AP
In fact John, the situation is far worse than it was under Apartheid. The average citizen regardless of race or colour is far worse off now with a currency that is nose-diving with a 70% devaluation against the Euro in the last two years, (March 2006 to March 2008) food prices rocketing with farms that have been handed over to blacks only producing a fraction of what they were before, and te cost of imported food also dramatically going up as the USA diverts its grains for biofuel. Commentators in South Africa expect food riots soon.
Corruption abounds, with a national police chief, Jackie Selebi who is being protected from charges of corruption and defeating the ends of justice charges (until recently he was the President of Interpol) by his ANC friends in Parliament, money being diverted from hospitals and schools to build football stadiums that after the FIFA WC Soccer in 2010 will never be used again to capacity enough to justify the cost and much more including the latest electrical power supply failures that are costing South Africa €100-million a day the country, according to the SA Press.
This failed public propaganda "coup" has hurt the ANC, but they will shrug it off as they continue to wreck South Africa. "It is all the fault of Apartheid." Oh Yeah? Pull the other one.
Mr Minto most certainly is not alone with making the wrong decision about Apartheid and he is now to be admired for his honesty. How many others are there in the world as honest?
How about you Mr. Peter Hain?
'GATVOL*' -- hardhitting criticism of Mbeki-regime in top Dutch publication.
August 10 2007 -- THE HAGUE, The Netherlands. One of the most critical articles of the Mbeki-regime yet published in the Netherlands was issued this week in theHaagse Post/De Tijd, a widely-read opinion weekly in the Dutch capital city.
Its headline reads: "Gatvol - the ANC's South Africa: racism, corruption, violence, unemployment"...
It starts off with the sentence: ' Life under the ANC in South Africa is no joke, and many of its top-educated people are leaving. However, as long as the ANC can capitalise on its 'freedom fighting glories' of the past, it can stay in power.' The article is not yet made available its archives on the Internet. (note: Mugabe kept up his glories chants for over 25 years while he wrecked Zimbabwe. It is Africa after all. Black Africa?) I am not a racist, just a realist who is not fooled by the propaganda as any right thinker should not be.
Those that are have their consciences to live with as millions of blacks starve and live in abject poverty.
NEWS - January 2008. South Africa is likened to a sinking ship.
The no-holds-barred article by Dutch journalist Willem Talis pulls no punches. I quote just a few paragraphs from it to illustrate the point. He wrote for instance:
"In the Netherlands, preferential treatment over one specific population group over another, is totally illegal."In South Africa it has been raised to a standard to strive for. " No other country country on earth places such an over-emphasis on race."
"Indeed the ANC-government knows within the decimal point exactly how the racial balances are situated in every facet of their society.
"As far as that particular subject is concerned therefore, nothing has changed at all under black-majority rule'. (since Apartheid finished).
"And whenever his regime is criticised, the president makes it a habit of pulling out the 'race card'."
"The comrades become overnight multi-million-dollar millionaires."
The article also describes detailed examples of why and how all the old struggle-era ANC-comrade-executives are turning themselves into dollar-millionaires practically overnight, and how they will always publicly hail and support each other as heroes even when they have been caught in criminal acts
"The first signs of (this) moral corruption started becoming visible in 1997 - the ANC had been in power about three years when "Reverend" Allan Boesak was accused of stealing money which had been collected to help apartheid-victims.(It was funds, hundreds of thousands of dollars, from Belgian missionary society for the poor in South Africa. Boesak spent it on a luxury home, three BMW motorcars, a luxury lifestyle, and a recording studio for his wife. He was charged mainly due to the media and the opposition party in Parliament, and went to the USA while he waited for the trial. He was sentenced to three years, but served only a fraction.)
"Upon Boesak's return from the USA, he was awaited at Johannesburg airport by the then-minister of Justice - not to personally clap him into handcuffs, but to pay homage and honour to this former leader in the anti-apartheid struggle."
"When Boesak was tried and imprisoned for fraud, he was accompanied there by supporters raising him high onto their shoulders; he was released from jail early and President Thabo Mbeki gave him amnesty personally. "Soon it became clearly evident: the comrades from the freedom-struggle could do no wrong". (In actual fact he was given a PARDON which is very different. In effect, it meant that he had never committed the crime and was absolved from any punishment. No public record exists of his paying back the cash he stole, originally R1,1 million.)
"After the takeover of SA's governance by the ANC-government, they also launched a massive social-engineering scheme, during which qualified, experienced white officials were dumped at a huge scale. The downside of this campaign was that huge numbers of these open posts were filled with inexperienced Blacks, also in the judiciary, and that the new managers gave themselves lavish salaries often hundreds of times more than the minimum-wage scale". (Many officials paid the old job-holders consultancy fees for a few months while they learnt the job. All with tax-payers money.)
"The ANC also enriched its election funds with donations from a mining magnate who has since then been conveniently murdered, and stubbornly refused to refund these illegal donations. Earlier, the ANC had also earned 1,5-million Euros from illegal oil-deals with the Saddam Hussein-regime.'
"Companies are only given government or private-company tenders such as from banks if they have Black partners. An annual 6,000 new 'dollar-millionaires' are being created in South Africa now. (...) the ANC's official spokesman Smuts Ngonyama summed up this new order in a most meaningful way, saying: "We (the freedom fighters) did not fight to remain poor." (------No, but just to make sure that the rest of the country is made poor, especially those we promised to serve.)
The article continues:
"ANC-fat cats are only there for one reason: to enrich themselves, and they measure their status by owning expensive BMW's, imposing homes, extravagant lifestyles and the number of security guards they surround themselves with. (...)
"Meanwhile more people now live in hovels than ever did a decennium ago (during apartheid) and the gap between rich and poor has grown ever wider.
"The ANC is the government and vice-versa. The division which is supposed to exist between politics and big differences is disappearing more each day."
The article concludes: "nearly everybody here in South Africa now feels that it's time to end all those nice words about improvements, and an end with a president who claims that he knew nobody who had died of Aids; and who announces that the crime-epidemic mainly is a question of 'perception'.
"A president who has for years maintained the myth that 'quiet diplomacy' with neighbouring Zimbabwe was the only way to solve the chaos caused by dictator Mugabe.'
"In short, many people are 'gatvol' - to use a flexible Afrikaans term..."
GATVOL is an Africans word meaning "fed up" or even much stronger.
THE WALKING DEAD - A REPORT ON THE SOUTH AFRICAN DEFENCE FORCE. 25 August 2007
The following is a Press report on the current state of the SADF. Remember, this is the army when run by the old government before the ANC came to power in 1994, that fought the combined forces of the Cuban Army, the Angolan Army and terrorist forces to a standstill in the days of Apartheid in Angola. Until the USA removed its political support. Since then, under the ANC, the officers have been changed with affirmative action and the whole ambience of the SADF has been transformed, but read the report, remembering that is is truthful with the references in it from outside professional commentators.
Subject: The walking dead
Most of South Africa's army is either too unfit or too old to be operationally deployed, according to a parliamentary report.
Only 3,000 out of 76,000 soldiers could be deployed and only four tanks could be used in action, according to a briefing by the Defence department.
The chairperson of the parliamentary portfolio committee on defence, Thandi Modise, has called on the Defence Minister to present a plan to remedy the situation within three months, according to the Sunday Independent newspaper. Military analyst Herman Hannekom of the Africa Institute knows the contents of the report and told BBC News Online that it should start a national debate and the SADF should go back to the drawing board.
Among the examples of the Defence Force's plight presented to the committee was the possibility that up to 60% of soldiers could be HIV positive.
The army has estimated the infection rate at between 17 and 23% but the briefing document quoted an unnamed medical specialist at a military hospital as saying that six out of every ten soldiers admitted to hospital tested positive for HIV.
Seven out of every ten deaths in the armed forces are Aids related, the parliamentary committee was told.
But Mr Hannekom said that the problem with estimating the HIV rate was that "honest statistics" were not available.
Too many generals
The department of defence has not said why so many troops are unfit or too old for operational service.
A department spokesman told BBC News Online that a press conference would be held on Tuesday to give its response to the report.
The briefing said that many soldiers were aged between 32 and 36.
An opposition spokesperson on defence, Roy Jankielsohn of the Democratic Alliance, said that the usual age of an infantryman was between 18 and 22. Many soldiers were therefore too old for operational deployment.
The army stopped recruiting in 1994 when the armed wings of the African National Congress (ANC) and Pan-Africanist Congress (PAC) were integrated into the defence force, according to Mr Jankielsohn.
It is not only the age and medical state of soldiers that presented a problem, the report detailed.
Only four out of 168 Olifant tanks and eight of 242 Rooikat armoured cars were operational.
The air force was reportedly short of fuel and usually ran out of fuel by September each year.
MPs were also told that the army was "top-heavy" with one general for every 293 men compared with one to 2,000 men in the United States army.
We used to have a joke, a little cruel perhaps, but based on facts that if a Black South African could not break something, it was truly a great piece of equipment. With the above information, serious as it is, we must have a little chuckle at the numbers of tanks, etc that are serviceable now. Once the equal of any army in the world as far as quality was concerned when it was staffed under the old Apartheid government.
Still, this is what the Western Left Wing wanted.
The current controversy with the South African Minister of Health. 2 Sept. 2007
Minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang (Min-Man) has had what many would call a chequered career as a doctor and now a politician as a member of the African National Congress, and who has for some years, despite in many's opinions not being a capable minister (or doctor?) held high office in the main government of South Africa. In most countries in the West, a person with a criminal record would not be allowed to hold office but this is the ANC where it would appear anything goes.
It has been reported and confirmed that while working in a hospital in Bostwana in the 1970s Dr. Manto was caught, charged and convicted of stealing a watch from a patient there, and given a suspended sentence and banned from visiting Botswana for ten years.
Then in 1999, she was again made infamous when she refused to answer a presenter's questions with a simple YES or NO but a load of guff (obviously taken the politician's training course), namely John Robbie. The question was, "Does HIV cause AIDS?" This was SA President Mbeki's big gaff at the time as he had publicly stated on several occasions that HIV does not cause AIDS, and many think it was because he did not want to spend taxpayer's money on the drugs to treat the many South Africans, predominantly Black, who were HIV positive. He later spent a lot though on his new Boeing luxury presidential jet, but that is another story.
Min-Man is also infamous for saying that beetroot and garlic will cure HIV, a cure she still supports.
In 2006, international AIDS experts called for her resignation, but the ANC looks after its own, however incompetent they are.
Well in the last few months, Min-Man has had a liver transplant due to cirrhosis caused by her alcoholism, jumping the transplant queue for the liver, and costing the taxpayers a lot of money in the process. And she is now reported to drinking again. She her operation done in a private hospital, not one of her own State hospitals many of which are reported to be dire trouble with shortages of senior trained staff.
And somehow, her medical records were "borrowed" from the hospital so the reason for the operation can be confirmed. Normally, a person's health records are supposed to be confidential, but when you are as controversial as Manto is, somehow this seems to be unfair to all those who pay her salary.
But this is the new South Africa, the rainbow nation where, if you wish to experience the "old Wild West", you can go there, strap on a gun and walk the streets waiting to be robbed or raped (even a a man).
A contemporary cartoon is below.
NOTE: "Babalas" is a hangover:
Minister/Doctor (?) Manto Tshabalala Msimang
South Africans who need AIDS drugs call for her resignation. But she says beetroot and garlic are good enough.
And Thabo Mbeki must have his presidential Boeing that cost US$ 43-million to buy and much to run. To hell with the SA citizens and their AIDS drugs!
HIV/AIDS IN SOUTH AFRICA
It is estimated that in South Africa some 900 people a day die of AIDS. Before you reach for the calculator, that is 328.500 a year.
An estimate also is that there are 1.000 new infections a day. I am sure you do not need a calculator for that one.
It is also estimated that South Africa has 5-million HIV positive people. With a population of 47 million, that is 10, 645%. But it is also estimated that there are a lot who do not know they are HIV positive.
During the years of apartheid, the world was kept constantly informed of the "terrible" Afrikaner government's continual attacks on the blacks, especially in the townships where they lived. Now the same thing is happening with the African national congress government authourising the same actions to subdue the blacks who are very unhappy at the way they are being governed, especially with the rampant corruption by officials.
For much more on this current news (Sept 2007) go to (please cut and paste: http://groups.msn.com/crimebustersofsouthafrica/civilrights.msnw?action=get_message&mview=0&ID_Message=3796&all_topics=0
Read and wonder what has happened. We can be forgiven for thinking that the new government is far worse that the old. At least in the old days the Blacks were stirred up by those wishing to take power with public necklacing being used to convince them. Now they are demonstrating against their own voted in government.
THE TRUTH ABOUT AN ANC RUN SOUTH AFRICA.
Groote Schuur loses 60 beds (Grootre Schur is a major hospital serving Cape Town.)
Date Posted: Friday 14-Sep-2007
Cape Town - Devastated Groote Schuur Hospital doctors have lost the battle to prevent the closure of 60 beds at the hospital, with medical superintendents ordered to start the process from Monday.(This is where the world's first human heart transplant was done in 1967 with the patient surviving.)
At Tygerberg Hospital, according to provincial health department spokeswoman Faiza Steyn, 15 beds have already been closed and a further 15 closures will follow, the Cape Argus reported on Friday.
The Groote Schuur order comes after a week during which not a single bed was open in the entire hospital and doctors were warned to cut back on admission of patients for elective procedures.

But the ANC has diverted funds to build stadiums for the FIFA Soccer World Cup in 2010, simultaneously diverting funds from other regional hospitals, one where the foundations had been already started.
PERHAPS THE POLICE SHOULD NOT BE ISSUED WITH GUNS?
South African Police 'lose' 3,856 firearms
Date Posted: Wednesday 19-Sep-2007
[Oh, and lots of these firearms end up in criminal hands. South African criminals use AK47's as well as standard issue South African Military weapons while committing crimes. Jan]
The police lost over 1 500 more firearms during the past financial year than they did during the one before, says the Auditor General.
In an audit contained in the SA Police Service 2006/7 annual report, he found 3 856 firearms were reported "lost, stolen or robbed from personnel throughout the country" during the 12 months up to March 31 this year.
In 2005/6, a total of 2 297 firearms were reported having gone missing in this manner.
The AG also said firearm control registers were not properly maintained by the police in six provinces, but did not specify which.
Further, "bi-annual firearms inspections were not always performed".
The audit also found "inventory differences" to the tune of R18,7-million (€1.81 million) between what the police actually had in their stores and what was shown on their computer system.
This was based on test counts carried out at 18 inventory stores around the country. - Sapa

And this is the country where the government is busy restricting much needed firearms for decent people to protect themselves from the criminals.
S.Africa: Man shot dead trying to save family from armed gang
Date Posted: Saturday 22-Sep-2007 (Fromwww.africancrisis.co.za web site)
Just another day in South Africa, except for the politicians who have taxpayer's supplied armed guards.
[Its terrible! Terrible! The number of people in this country who watch members of their family die right in front of their eyes. It is hideous. Jan]
A man was shot dead in Scottburgh (south of Durban, natal) while trying to protect his family from a gang of armed robbers, police said on Friday.
Police spokesperson, Captain Vincent Pandarum said 32-year old Etienne Roets was shot on Thursday night as he attempted to charge down the gunman who had turned the gun on his two children.
He said that a number of armed men had entered the Scottburgh house at about 8pm. Roets and his wife initially surrendered, sitting down on the floor. But when one of the gunmen turned their attention on the panic-stricken children, Roets reacted.
He sustained multiple gunshot wounds and died at the scene.
Pandarum said Roets' mother-in-law was shot in the arm and admitted to Kingsway Hospital
A murder, attempted murder and armed robbery case have been opened. - Sapa

The disaster of the ANC. What a left-wing Canadian author thinks.
Book: Black South Africans are worse off under ANC Rule - Township violence returns!!
Date Posted: Monday 22-Oct-2007
[Adriana sent me this nice piece. Well, its "Disaster Capitalism" being it is being implemented by Socialists and Communists - that's why. I hope the CIA learns its lesson from this. Don't hand the country over to Marxist TERRORISTS and expect them to run a proper Capitalist Pro-Western society!! Jan]
WHY ARE VIOLENT SA TOWNSHIP PROTESTS BACK?
'Black South Africans are much worse off under ANC-rule than they ever were during apartheid... ' - Naomi Klein in "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism'...
After over a decade (13 years) of ANC-rule under President Thabo Mbeki,conditions for black people in SA are today so much worse than they ever were under apartheid that black communities all across the country's townships again have returned to the streets to protest -- waging violence-driven campaigns, this time against their own black regime. They are protesting against their dismal living conditions and also the drastic lack of civil liberties being endured under the Mbeki-regime.
Far-left Canadian journalist Naomi Klein noted these shocking living conditions of black South Africans under the Mbeki-regime -- describing them in her latest book "The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism". Klein provides the following list of how living conditions for SA blacks have gotten worse:
o Four-million people now live on less than $1 a day (doubled since apartheid, was 2 million and there were heavy sanctions in force then.);
o 48% of the people now are unemployed; it was 28% under apartheid;
o only 5,000 of 35-million+ black South Africans earn over $60,000 a year; Many are paid it but do not earn it due to the affirmative action policies of the ANC government.
the ANC government has built 1.8 million (ramshackle, tiny) new homes while two-million South Africans have lost theirs; and most have fallen down or have serious defects, whereas similar homes built under Apartheid 40 years or less ago are still standing.
o Some 1-m blacks were evicted from farms by new black farmers; The evicted blacks were employees who whole lives were there with farm schools, clinics run by the farmers and a guarantee of a life in old age.
o the shack dweller population grew by 50%, People were allowed to flock to the cities where they are crowded together in unsanitary and dangerous conditions. At least before they had their own animals and plant crops, and the security of a local community run by a chief.
o in 2006, one-quarter of the entire SA population lives in shacks without running water or electricity.
o the TB/AIDS infection rate is soaring past 20% -- and the Mbeki government denies the severity of the twin killer-epidemics; This is an ANC government whose Minister of Health believes that garlic and beetroot cures HIV/AIDS, is an alcoholic who has just had a liver transplant paid for by the taxpayers, and was thrown out of Botswana 20 years ago for stealing from patients. She was a doctor then.
o The average life expectancy for everyone is at 48 years; it hovered around 62 years during apartheid; It is even worse in other countries that the Europeans have left, especially Zimbabawe. Par for te course though,. They are returning to their "roots".
o 40% of all SA schools have no electricity; Those that have, like homes and businesses suffer regular long power cuts due to the non-investment inn much needed new power stations. The sales of home electrical generators have rocketed.
o 25% of all the 46-million people in SA have no clean water. And much of the water in the rivers and dams has been polluted by e-coli which is derived from human waste (excretia) due to the ANC's terrible record on governing properly.
o 60% of all the people have inadequate sanitation; 40% have no telephones. Well it is Africa after all!

What Rush Limbaugh said about Poverty Doubling in South Africa...
Date Posted: Wednesday 14-Nov-2007 from the Africancrisis.co.za web-site.
[Adriana is so very fast!! She found the link to Rush Limbaugh's talk about poverty doubling in South Africa. Thanks Adriana! The transcripts don't mention AfricanCrisis, but those who listened said they heard it!
The key issue in this story though, is that basically, THE ANC FAILED. Its failed in EVERYTHING it campaigned on - OR CLAIMED TO BE INTERESTED IN. Now us whites have always said (and I said this in Government by Deception in 2001), that the REAL ISSUE is not about what is good or bad for blacks. It is about POWER FOR CORRUPT BLACK MARXISTS! That's the REAL GAME. They'll say anything and promise anything until they GET INTO POWER. Once they're in power... you won't get them out - not even if the BLACKS VOTE THEM OUT!! (Ask the MDC about trying to vote a corrupt Marxist Socialist bastard out! Its not possible to do!)
This is a game - a lie. Look, give the ANC credit where credit is due. Using lies and trickery, they out-manoeuvred everyone and they got into power and they even got foreign support and many billions of dollars!! Very nice move. I will tip my hat to the ANC! They lied, and they lied well. They put on a whole big fancy act and they pulled it off. They lied in front of TV cameras. The put on a whole big extravagant act in front OF THE WHOLE PLANET in order to screw us good.
They lied to the blacks. They got the blacks to fight for NOTHING! Their whole FIGHT. *EVERYTHING* they stood for and fought for for 33 years... Their 13 years in power now prove that it was all a complete waste.
Their only hope now is to steal it all from us whites. They still won't get much and it will still have been a worthless fight - but like Mugabe who gave the blacks farms which they couldn't handle they could pretend to have given them something that is largely worthless to them and which they can't handle anyway.
Look at it another way: If they had NOT fought Apartheid, they'd be better off today (except for Mandela who'd still be in jail). If the blacks had NOT murdered other blacks... or fought the whites or blown stuff up... things would have been better.
Go further: Imagine what this country would be like today under Apartheid, if Nelson Mandela and the communists had never started their war. Imagine how ADVANCED this country would be now if:-
1. White men were never called up to do military service. They could have studied and entered the economy and built businesses and farms.
2. Millions of highly skilled whites would have stayed.
3. Big businesses would never have moved their capital out of South Africa to hide it overseas.
4. Perhaps many more skilled whites from Europe would have immigrated here?
5. Tens of Billions of Rands would never wasted on massive wars to fight the ANC & the communists.
6. There would have been no world sanctions on SA.
7. Foreign corporations would not have disinvested from here. (Most probably they'd have pumped in more funds).
Imagine... 33 years of PROGRESS IN PEACE... No Nelson Mandela... Peace, and progress. Where would this country have been by now? Perhaps it would have been almost as rich as Australia is today?
Think about it. Think about how Nelson Mandela and the ANC destroyed everything for a generation.
Ask yourself: How well off the blacks would have been by now? Imagine the cities we could have built during 33 years of unbroken peace?
Remember MOST of SA's infrastructure was built in the days Hendrik Verwoed ruled this country. The whole highway system - most of the dams, etc. Imagine too... Hendrik Verwoed had never been assassinated. He was a brilliant leader... Ask yourself where this country would be today?
If Apartheid built the biggest hospital in the world, and it was for BLACKS ONLY... imagine what Apartheid might have done for Blacks with HIV and TB? Hey? Instead of telling the Blacks to eat beetroot and to rape babies... science would have come to the aid of the blacks. Don't you think things would have been better for them too?
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: History will show that the ANC was the worst thing that ever happened to this country. The only mistake I can think of is that the ANC wasn't just shot to pieces to begin with. The Whites were too nice. That was their mistake. I think that was the biggest mistake - was NOT killing them all - including Mandela himself and saving everyone a whole lot of trouble.
This one news item proves that everything Mandela and the ANC, etc stood for was just complete junk. Of course the same can be said of Mugabe in Zimbabwe, Swapo in Namibia, Frelimo in Mozambique and the MPLA in Angola. We fought and fought and the IDIOTS, the fools who would not even be able to HELP THEMSELVES - they won! May the Lord God forgive us for losing to such rubbish evil and complete scum. Jan]
This is what Rush said about South Africa and the rubbish ANC. I love it. He referred to them as "a Marxist-rooted bunch, a socialist bunch". Nice!! The truth is welcome. Here's the transcript on his site:-
RUSH: "The number of South Africans living on less than one dollar a day has more than doubled in a decade since shortly after the end of apartheid. The South African Institute of Race Relations said that 4.2 million people were living on one dollar a day in 2005." Can I translate this for you? Poverty in South Africa has doubled since the ANC took control of the country, and the ANC is a Marxist-rooted bunch, a socialist bunch. Poverty has doubled, the number of people living on less than a dollar a day in South Africa has doubled since the ANC took over.
This is the story he linked to: http://www.africasia.com/services/news/newsit...
Here is the text of that story. I highlighted the reference to whites:-
Poverty doubles in South Africa in 10 years: survey
Extreme poverty in South Africa is on the rise, a report released Monday revealed, showing that the number of people living on less than one dollar a day had doubled in about 10 years.
While the country's economy has boomed since the end of apartheid in 1994, unemployment has increased among all race groups, the survey by the South African Institute of Race Relations found.
"The number of people living on less than one US dollar per day (the measure of extreme poverty used by the World Bank) in South Africa, increased from 1.89 million in 1996 to 4.2 million in 2005," said the report.
"As a proportion of the population, this represents an increase from 4.5 percent to 8.8 percent of the population living on less than one US dollar."
While the number of people employed rose from 9.2 million to 12.4 million, a surge of 65 percent in the number of economically active people, from 9.7 million to just over 16 million, still left many unemployed.
"Although the white community had the biggest increase in unemployment, it still had the lowest rate of unemployment, at 5.7 percent. The unemployment rate for the population as a whole was 27.5 percent."
The annual South Africa Survey also found that an increase of 212 percent in deaths in the 30-34 age group between the years of 1997 and 2005, could be "largely attributable to mortality from AIDS", despite a reluctance to note AIDS as a cause of death.
South Africa's infant mortality rate had dropped from a high of 58 infant deaths per 1,000 live births in 2002, to 48 in 2006, and both cholera and malaria were being largely controlled, it said.
"The number of cholera cases in South Africa has been brought under control, from 98,059 cases in 2001, to 2,780 in 2004. Malaria has been largely controlled in South Africa following the reintroduction of DDT spraying," said the survey.

Murder rates in South Africa now 88 a day.
The latest police statistics - http://www.saps.gov.za/statistics/reports/crimestats/2007/_pdf/rsa_total.pdf (Adobe Reader required) show that the actual deaths (murder and manslaughter (culpable homicide) through violence in South Africa are almost87 a day, or 32 000 a year. Compared with say the USA's total of 16 000 a year, with a population of six times that of South Africa, the statistic takes on a whole new meaning. Basically it means that you are twelve times as likely to die a violent death in South Africa than you are in the USA.
Anyone for the FIFA Soccer World Cup in 2010?

"It's unacceptable that South Africa has been left at the mercy of barbarians," award-winning author André P Brink said, after his nephew was shot dead.
Pretoria - Prize-winning author André P Brink ranted on Thursday about the country's crime crisis after his nephew had been shot dead by robbers at the weekend in his home. (not unusual in South Africa now.)
"It's unacceptable that South Africa has been left at the mercy of barbarians," he said.
Adriaan Steenberg, 45, son of the deceased author Elsabé Steenberg (Brink's sister), was shot in the face in his bedroom in front of his wife, Leonie, 41, on Saturday morning.
They lived on a smallholding in Leeufontein in northeastern Pretoria.
The couple's three young children - 11, nine, and eight - had been sleeping when their father was shot.
Brink said from the Western Cape: "We must keep hoping at all times that someone will gain control because it doesn't seem as if the government can govern the country anymore."
'Someone in the house'
Leonie said on Thursday that they had gone to Centurion to fetch her father-in-law, Professor Dawie Steenberg, 68, who had come to visit them.
They went to bed about 02:30 on Saturday. "I don't know what time it was, but my husband jumped up and said there was someone in the house," said Leonie.
The suspects gained access to the house through a window in the dining room. "Adriaan told me to lie on the floor next to the bed. He also went to lie next to the bed.
"We heard footsteps on the stairs and my father-in-law shouting: 'Help, help!'
"Adriaan got up to press the panic button. He was only halfway upright when they shot him. "I saw the flash and then Adriaan fell."
The robbers threatened Leonie with a firearm and ordered her to switch off the alarm, while saying: "We're going to kill you, we're going to kill."
Hit out with his cane
They took her to Dawie's room where they tied up her hands and undressed Dawie before tying up his hands, too. They only left Dawie's shirt on.
Leonie said: "One stayed in the room with us and two were outside. My father-in-law rolled on his back and shut the door with his feet to keep them out. He also hit them with his cane."
"He stopped after they threatened to kill him."
Leonie told the robbers they should take what they wanted and leave. She just wanted to get to her husband to help him.
When they took her out of her father-in-law's room, one of the robbers was standing outside with a gun against her nine-year-old daughter's head.
"She wanted to cry, but I calmed her and took her to her grandfather."
Couldn't feel a pulse
The robbers took Leonie through the house and stole money, cell-phones (mobile phones) and a laptop.
At one stage, they left her alone in the room with her husband.
"I felt for a pulse, but there was nothing. I wanted to do something for Adriaan, but I couldn't."
Then Leonie heard more shots outside, apparently fired by a security company, and the robbers fled.
"It was unnecessary to shoot him," Leonie said.
"He believed he was good to everyone and that no one would hurt us."
Brian Deller's comment.
As was forecast, South Africa under a black-run government is continuing to take the country down the road to ruin, and remember this affects everybody who lives there. The problem is that the propaganda spewed out by those who wanted power, the Marxist/Soviet trained ANC and te other terror groups hoping to grab power, and what was believed by the masses in the West just because it was in the paper and on TV, now means that most are scared to even think about the massive problems there as South Africa follows Zimbabwe because they are all mostly brainwashed that it is racist to even consider doing so,. and those who campaigned actively against Apartheid are hopefully sitting privately ashamed, feeling bad about the ongoing conditions they helped to create. It is going to get far worse yet. The above is just another example of another day in South Africa, crime capital of the world.
Thinking of going to the FIFA Soccer World Cup in 2010. Make sure that you are well covered by good insurance that covers everything including being infected with HIV if you are raped, man or woman. Read the small print in the policy very carefully.
