Sunday Bloody Sunday – Steve Hofmeyr’s version

The following was sourced today from theridgeonline.co.za:

Steve, Bono row rages

In his ongoing campaign against U2 frontman, Bono, Afrikaans singer and self-appointed cultural guardian Steve Hofmeyr has parodied the lyrics of the old U2 hit Sunday Bloody Sunday.

Here are the revised lyrics as they appear on Hofmeyr’s official website.

Hofmeyr was enraged when Bono made comments relating to the singing of the song “Kill the Boer”.

Here’s why Steve got annoyed and threw his U2 tickets into the Jukskei.
(BTW: Steve did not really through his tickets in the Jukskei river. It’s just a metaphor!)

Sunday Bloody Sunday – (Steve Hofmeyr’s version)

I can’t believe the news today
I can’t close my eyes, and make it go away
How long, must we sing this song
How long, to kill somebody else’s young

The Boere father stands and weeps
Bodies bleeding at his feet
Bono, used to understand the call
Kill the Boer, Bono says yes shoot them all…

Kill the Boer, before Sunday
Kill the Boer, before Sunday
Kill the Boer, before Sunday

As he sings we lose a few
Many lost, what’s another one or two
The trench is dug within our hearts
And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
Torn apart

Kill the Boer, before Sunday
Kill the Boer, before Sunday
Kill the Boer, before Sunday

They're back again at www. zasucks. net - for now. They plan to get a new host (it's on a free host right now) but the domain will probably remain the same when they've got everything up and running on the permanent server. Strange thing though... there's one post on the new site by... Renaldo Gouws!

It's strange, but Mike posted it on his blog, so I maybe they kissed and made up. Time will tell, I guess. I'm curious to know what's going on with that.

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.
