October Thunderstorms on South Africa’s Horizon



All indications suggest that South Africa is in for a few heavy thunderstorms this month, followed by all sorts of erratic downpours, rumbles and crashes… and I’m not talking about the weather!

The South African Communists have launched their Red October campaign; the ANC Youth League is planning mass mobilisation and some serious action for 27 to 28 October, which promises to bring MORE CHAOS to the streets of Johannesburg and Pretoria
- (see video here).
 
Censorbugbear reports that heavy-artillery military convoys crossed recently into South Africa from Zimbabwe, and nobody knows why… (does anybody know?)

The SA government has also kicked off their Census 2011 project today, with Zuma urging everyone to stand up and be counted. It was planned months ago, that the 2011 Census was going to take place during the month of October. Why then are coalition groups within the ANC government planning mass disruptions in the same month?

BREAKING NEWS! - I’ve just heard a report on Radio 702 that there has already been a robbery at a house in Kensington, by BOGUS CENSUS WORKERS!

Numerous people have also contacted the radio station asking what happened to the promised posters that were supposed to have been put up in their neighbourhoods. The posters are supposed to display the faces of fieldworkers and forms part of the “Know your Enumerator” campaign before Census 2011 began on October 10.


I don’t see any of these posters anywhere in my area either!
 

Last month Statistics SA reported that 2.8 million posters, bearing pictures of census takers, will be distributed before the census count begins – Source.

I wonder who have become instant billionaires with the design and printing of these 2.8 million posters!

The census will last until 31 October 2011… God help South Africa!

Weapon oiled (again). All working parts - smooth. Let them enter the property.

They can leave the form in my post-box and collect it later – in the post-box! That’s the way it was done in the past… No strangers are entering my home, NOT even over my dead body!

I see KFC has made his idiotic appearance again. How do the censors enter 1/2 man on their forms?

@Rooster

I’ve warned you before, if you come on this blog with intentions of leaving contemptuous remarks, and accusations of me being an “extreme right-wing loony”, your comments will be deleted. Go crap on your own blog please!

Die eerste gewapende roof en huisbraak is sopas gerapporteer aan Radio 702. Twee mans aangetrek in die kleredrag van sensus amptenare het hulself voorgedoen as amptelik. Voordat die betrokke huisbewoner hom kon vergewis van hulle identiteit is hy oorrrompel en is hy geforseer om sy brandkluis oop te sluit en het hulle sy vuurwapen gegryp en kontant en ander items gesteel . Die man woon in Kensington buite Johannesburg en het 'n paar minute self ingeskakel om sy ondervinding met luisteraars te deel.

Thanks for the link TIA. No-one seems to know just what is going on. I have mates who work at airports and they could (would???) not say anything.

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.
