They’re all Baboons… The Entire Troop!

 

Humans that behave like baboons is not an uncommon spectacle in Africa. You see this sort of thing all the time. It’s a particularly common occurrence in the South African parliament… In fact, there’s even a YouTube video out, that demonstrates this behaviour quite superbly.

One of the most prominent African baboons lives in Zimbabwe. His name is Robert Mugabe. This specific species is notorious for its remarkable ability to wreck an entire country in record time. Several members of this same species have managed to swamp the government structures of South Africa. It’s only a matter of time before they too will have wrecked SA, in a similar fashion they brought Zimbabwe to ruin.

And now for the latest news, brought to you by news24.com :


Baboons wreak havoc at Zim border post

Harare - Troops of bag-snatching, truck-looting baboons are causing chaos at a border post between Zimbabwe and Zambia in daily raids for food, NewsDay reported on Tuesday.

"Baboons are an issue that must be dealt with here because they destroy travellers’ goods," the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority station manager at the Chirundu border post, Tichaona Phiri, told the newspaper.

"Sometimes they bite or clap people on their faces if they try to defend their property and they can snatch ladies' handbags and even destroy cars as they search for food."

The apes also tear up sacks of maize on trucks moving through the border, a committee of lawmakers was told during a visit to the site, located in a national park.

"These baboons can smell maize on trucks and considering their huge numbers, it is very difficult to control them," the newspaper quoted Phiri as saying.

"But the problem is that they behave like human beings and are very good tricksters," said Phiri.

Welcome to Planet of the Apes!
These third world savages don't have a crown on their heads and therefore they don't have a brain!

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.
