Blogging the true facts is not for the faint-hearted!

The sudden arrest in Johannesburg of a well-known ‘pro-white’ South African blogger, who writes under the name of Uhuru Guru, has sent shock waves through the internet community. He was arrested yesterday morning at about 06:30 by a massive contingent of police from no less than five different specialist units. His home was raided and all his computer equipment was confiscated.

The exact nature of the charges against him seem unclear at this stage, but according to a report on the website of PRAAG.CO.ZA, it appears that crimen injuria may be involved. It also appears that a petty incident dating back to 1993 was apparently used by the police as an excuse to arrest him, and to bring him in for questioning on other matters that were totally unrelated. According to Uhuru Guru’s legal representative, there are clear signs that the arrest was politically motivated.

Uhuru Guru regularly posts articles on the website, which according to this source averages about 5,672 pageviews per day. The website has been shutdown in the past on a number of occasions, forcing them to move their content to more secure servers. They recently published horrific photographs of South African crime victims on this post, but the pictures have been removed. However, the cached version of the page can still be viewed here.

U G was set free this morning. The Senior State Prosecutor referred to the fact that the case is nineteen years old and refused to put it on the Court roll.

He is out after an unpleasant night in the cells. Thank you for all the support we got.

Unfortunately though, things are expected to get worse in the short to long term with major legal battles.

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

Heritage Day Photographs (Voortrekker Monument) - Sept. 2013
This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
