Bulala: A True story of South Africa


Bulala by Cuan Elgin is a historically accurate story of South Africa, in novel form. The book is now available in a more compact, affordable edition, for the South African market.

The following was taken from the Facebook Page where the book is currently being marketed:

The gripping tale of the beginnings of a small, brave, Christian nation born of both extremes of the spectrum: conflict, turmoil, and tragedy as well as love, dedication, and adventure - this exciting historical account of the history of South Africa (from earliest times to the end of the 2nd Anglo-Boer War at the dawn of the 20th Century) is woven as a rich tapestry into the form of a novel.

Dutch, English, French Huguenot, German, Indian, Irish, Khoi, Malay, Portuguese, Scots, Xhosa, Zulu, and other peoples struggle with and against each other in this factual account, which depicts the events as they happened, as well as the beliefs in the hearts and the thoughts in the minds of those people during those times - yet while this moving saga reveals how and why things were done as they were, it does so without condemning or condoning behaviour. The reader is free to draw their own conclusions and do their own moralizing.

Deeply researched, the Scottish-Irish-descended South African-born author travelled over 15,500 miles [25,000 km.] across South Africa to every historical site mentioned in the narrative, in his first-hand investigative research. You will learn, laugh, and cry - but more importantly, understand the actual events which transpired in this controversial, southern-most African nation, without the bias of the media or the pressured slant of special-interest groups.

Apart from being so highly entertaining that you will find it hard to put this book down, the historically accurate presentation will allow the non-South African reader to understand South Africa as well as it can possibly be understood by an outsider. Further, modern nations may possibly learn some lessons and avoid similar pitfalls which may threaten their domestic tranquillity. Read "Bulala" and think again!

Excerpts from the book as provided by the author:

After lengthy “negotiations” to “share power” with the black majority under a new constitution (which was the only mandate that 72% of the white electorate had given their leader), De Klerk and his henchmen ignored pleas (as did the mainstream press) from Afrikaners to... establish ’n toevlug in die weste, (“a refuge in the west”) - in the historically “white” Western Cape.

Afrikaners were demanding their own state, or at the very least, a federation of states, wherein they could exercise a degree of self-determination. But the De Klerk team suddenly capitulated to the black “negotiators” and agreed to a universal franchise vote. This basically guaranteed that the ANC would easily and overwhelmingly win the election and then wield absolute power.

The ANC swiftly began bussing-in tens of thousands of Xhosas from their Transkei homeland, to the cities, and especially to Cape Town; establishing sprawling squatter-camps there to ensure that they would have sufficient “loyal voters” ready to swing the elections their way.

Nelson Mandela, who had been imprisoned (not for his "political beliefs" but for 193 counts of sabotage and for smuggling huge amounts of Soviet-bloc munitions), became the first black President of the “new” South Africa, in 1994. De Klerk was also well rewarded, in advance, for his role in this arrangement: He and Mandela shared the NOBEL PEACE PRIZE (with its million-dollar purse) of 1993. Affadavits later alluded to Mandela having foreign bank accounts, on which he paid no tax (according to Business Day, March 10, 2007).

De Klerk was subsequently divorced from his wife of 39 years (who had been his “college sweetheart” at POTCHEFSTROOM UNIVERSITY), in 1998, after the discovery of his affair (according to BBC News, Wed., December 5, 2001) with his long-time mistress, Elita Georgiades (wife of a Greek shipping billionaire, supporter, and family friend) - whom he married a week later.

The former Mrs. Marike de Klerk (1938-2001), who reputedly did not share her husband’s liberal views, was brutally murdered (strangled and stabbed; found with the knife still embedded in her back) in her own home, on the “safe” side of town - killed by her own black “security guard!” She was murdered while her ex-husband, F.W. De Klerk, was in Stockholm, Sweden attending a NOBEL PRIZE COMMITTEE function.

Her high-profile murder drew sympathy from many circles, even the most unlikely: The 2nd President of the “new” South Africa, Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki (born 1942), graciously stated that she was a “strong, charming and dignified woman.”

Belatedly, her ex-husband, former-president F.W. de Klerk (who oversaw his own peoples’ political euthanasia) began protesting against the ANC government’s (blatantly racist) economic policies.

Agronomists warn that their “expropriation” of thousands of white-owned farms could lead the country towards agricultural collapse. The devastated neighboring country of Zimbabwe is quoted as the one most glaringly obvious example of the spectacular failure of such short-sighted, virulently anti-white, self-destructive government ideologies.

Extracts from the book Bulala are an excellent read, which clarifies the history of South Africa in a clear, unbiased manner.

MANDELA: THE MAN & THE MYTH

It is a common misconception that the ANC’s leader in the 1994 South African elections, Nelson Mandela, had been jailed for his “political beliefs.” He was in fact acquitted of treason after a 4-year trial, but re-arrested a few years later, and sentenced to 5 years imprisonment for launching an armed insurrection (as founder and commander-in-chief of Mkontho We Sizwe-MK; the ANC's militant wing).

However Mandela conspired not just to bring down the government—he was planning on killing tens of thousands of civilians in his quest for power.

He was then later charged with 193 counts of terrorism: for sabotage and for trying to smuggle, prepare, or manufacture (mostly Soviet-bloc) munitions, including: 210,000 hand-grenades, 48,000 anti-personnel mines, 144 tons of ammonium- nitrate, 21.6 tons of aluminum powder, and 1,500 timing devices.

Nelson Mandela’s personal Makarov pistol (“for killing white policemen”) which he buried in Rivonia before his arrest during the ANC’s “armed struggle,” was never recovered. He was given this pistol & ammunition during a clandestine visit to Ethiopia, where he received training in sabotage. (See also: Missing Makarov Pistol worth R22 million?)

These multiple charges were clearly not “trumped up” political charges:

In his eloquent closing statement to the court, Mandela candidly admitted his guilt on the charges of sabotage, adding that he was, if needs be, prepared to die for his ideals. It was apparent from the huge amount of smuggled explosives that he was not planning to die alone.

The judge at his trial comment that “personal ambition” may well have played a role in his plans. Mandela was never tortured during either his interrogation or incarceration (as he undoubtedly would have been in a black African nation).

Most have been denied access to the truth by the treacherous liberal media and understand why Amnesty International never accepted him as a political prisoner. Even as the world finally woke up to how wicked Winnie Mandela is, we must face reality about how dangerous and deceitful Nelson Mandela has been.

The fact is that even Amnesty International refused to take on Nelson Mandela’s case because they asserted that he was no political prisoner but had committed numerous violent crimes and had had a fair trial and a reasonable sentence.

Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. He had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilizing terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s MK terrorists.

South African President P.W. Botha had, on a number of occasions, offered Nelson Mandela freedom from prison, if he would only renounce terrorist violence. This Mandela refused to do. - Invictus Idolatry

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.
