The Kaffir Mentality Strikes - again!

Yesterday saw the start of yet another organized strike with at least 145 000 municipal workers walking off the job - demanding a ridiculous 18% pay increase - (news report here). The weather, however, decided not to play along and in certain places in Gauteng the day turned out to be a rather windy, wet, cold and miserable affair. The media tried to create the impression that the promised fullscale strike did not materialise because SA Municipal Workers' Union (Samwu) members boycotted their own union, apparently on the grounds of corruption within the “dysfunctional” provincial leadership. 

I can well believe that their so-called ‘leadership’ is corrupt to the core, but whatever the case - I still think the depressing cold weather played a role in yesterday’s uneventful strike, because when the frosty drizzle stopped and the weather warmed up a bit, it thawed the Kaffir mentality back to its ‘normal’ levels of functioning again.

Now before the liberal mob get all worked up by my use of the word “Kaffir”, please take not that in this part of the world there are Black and Asian Africans who use the exact same phrase when they refer to people who behave in an uncultivated manner. The recent looters and vandals that almost wrecked London are also Kaffirs – the whole lot of them!

The following paragraph will put these strike actions into perspective, especially for foreigners who are not familiar with what’s going on in South Africa:

These latest strikes were organized by SAMWU. It’s a trade union affiliated with the Congress of South African Trade Unions (COSATU). COSATU is part of an alliance with the ANC and the South African Communist Party, called the Tripartite Alliance. COSATU’s logo is the wagon wheel. They probably stole it from the Voortrekkers! COSATU’s main objective is to disrupt Africa's biggest economy, and they will not stop until they’ve completely wrecked it. This is unfortunately one of the senseless goals of Socialism. They are masterful when it comes to exploiting the masses, especially the so-called underprivileged, poor people of the world.

This is what these 'underprivileged workers' think of their capital city:

Samwu strike litters Pretoria streets
16 August 2011 - 15:39

Dustbins were emptied and litter was strewn all over the streets of central Pretoria, as 200 members made their way to the municipality's finance department on Tuesday. Protesters walked through Van der Walt Street deliberately turned municipality bins over, opening black bags and dragging it across the street. Vehicles had to drive around the litter, disrupting lunch hour traffic in the central business areas.

This could be seen as a dry run for the planned provincial march in Johannesburg on Friday. Last year's strike was marred by violence and littering, and the same thing could very well happen again. When the union announced their strike notice earlier this month, they guaranteed the media that they have educated the members and no violence and littering will occur.

The union's Pretoria regional secretary Zebulon Monkoe said this is an unfortunate situation. He said they will investigate the matter and if they find that their members are responsible for the littering they will face disciplinary actions.

Samwu members are demanding an 18% salary hike, while the employer Salga is offerig more than 6%.

When you think a politician is talking about average people by referring to 'the masses', always remember he is actually saying "Them asses".

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.
