The ANC at War

Since freedom for 'all’ was established in South Africa in April 1994, the ruling ANC has defined itself as a disciplined force of the left with policies rooted in the needs and aspirations of the overwhelming majority (black) South Africans, many of whom are poor. Their party declaration further states that it is “their interests”, meaning the previously disadvantaged and poor, that are at the heart of the ANC`s agenda.

As a member of the Socialist International (and goodness knows how many other global socialist groups, with roots dangling in Marxist-Communism), a central focus of ANC policy has been the redressing of socio-economic differences stemming from colonial- and apartheid-era policies. Although the ANC declared itself, in 2004, to be a social democratic party it officially defines its agenda as the National Democratic Revolution. In other words - THEY ARE STILL AT WAR!

The fact that South Africa is in a horrible mess, with many parts of the country resembling a war zone, and that the ANC - after 18 years of democratic freedom still continue to blame Verwoerd and apartheid for all their stupendous blunders, is sufficient proof that their current motives are the exact same angry motives that drove the ANC back in the days when they were formally recognized as a murderous terrorist organization.

See in this regard the information compiled by the Global Terrorism Database on terrorist incidents for which the ANC was responsible. The database, an initiative of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security based at the University of Maryland, lists 606 incidents of terrorist attacks attributed to the ANC between the years 1976 – 1997.

Take note: The abovementioned database only mentions nine (9) attacks that occurred in the year 1994 preceding the April elections, and four (4) attacks that occurred after the ANC came to power in April 1994. There are plenty more attacks not mentioned and which were committed while the ANC were already the ‘democratically elected’ ruling party. See for example: Increased Repression and Continued Attack in 1995 and 1996.

A peculiar phenomenon about databases of this nature is the fact that the record-keeping slackens somewhat and eventually stops, quite abruptly, when a terrorist organization becomes an official political entity within a democracy -- or to state this differently: -  When voters, who were nowhere near ready for 'democracy' and who had no idea that they were backing terrorists, put this lot in power.

It goes without saying – as the terrorists gained more power as the ruling body in government the easier it became to sweep their own atrocities under the carpet, and to also vilify their opponents as they’ve done with, among others, the IFP. The fact that democracy has become a rather ambiguous principle was again recently highlighted by Mangosuthu Buthelezi when he said: “The SABC should be the voice of the people... [But] its ANC, ANC everywhere you look." - Source

And now it will be the ANC and the Mangaung conference… Mangaung, and non-stop Mangaung – distracting our attention from the raging warfare, the National Democratic Revolution, and the fact that they’ve also managed to intensify their revolution by mobilizing citizens employed in crucial sectors, such as mining and transport, and who are nothing but mere cheap foot-soldiers of the ANC. The fact that these protesters always get what they want is proof that the whole ‘striking’ affair is at the heart of the ANC agenda – exactly as stipulated in their party declaration.

When a government adopts such a devious and scheming course of action in order to attain their objectives and keeps blaming others for every crisis, why then should we really care whether Jacob Zuma remains president and head of state, or whether the next fat-cat to take over these roles is Kgalema Motlanthe or Tokyo Sexwale? In the end no amount of new blood or reshuffling of leadership is going to change the true colours of the ANC and their Marxist-Communist agenda. The Mangaung conference is thus just another wasteful expenditure – a farcical and merrymaking distraction of mass proportions!

But there’s also good news…
The chaos and confusion caused by the many revolutionary drills in this country have boosted the ingenuity and survival instincts of the average man on the street. The average South African no longer panics when he/she hears the news that a burning truck or two is blocking a major highway, or when a news reporter announces that it’s safer to stay out of the CBD due to riotous behaviour of some sort. They no longer freak out when fuel prices rise again, or when their monthly groceries cost almost double the amount it cost the previous month.

I’ve noticed an increasing number of South Africans, in my small circle of friends and in their circles, who have contentedly given up on luxuries they don’t need, and in the proses are living far healthier lifestyles. I’m not sure if this is a national trend though, but gathering from what I’ve perceived in my own small community it seems that people are unperturbed with all the chaos going on around them. It seems that everyone has some-or-other contingency plan in place, unique to their own circumstances. Protection of limb, life and property has become a natural instinct, and the sights and smells of smouldering wreckage only heightens awareness.

The ingenious plan to uplift the plight of the majority poor black Africans by means of one strike action after the next has thus to a certain extent backfired in the face of the ANC. Notwithstanding the fact that leaders like Zuma are more concerned with living affluent lifestyles at the expense of the taxpayer, and don’t really care much for the plight of the poor, the ANC and their cronies have also totally underestimated the intelligence, resilience, and resourcefulness of the average South African.

Although there are still many sheeple in the ANC’s fold, a time is fast approaching when the majority will come to terms with the fact that we simply cannot continue with the current trend and that we'll all be far better-off and happier without a corrupt and greedy bunch of double-dealing hogs in government. It is difficult to predict when exactly that day will climax. It can happen tomorrow or it can happen in 10 years from now, but when the defining moment does arrive you can be sure that it will not be a smooth transition. The ANC’s true colours will resurface and blood will most definitely flow, but the blood will purify the land again, making it the ideal time for South Africa’s culturally-diverse minority groups to regroup and to rebuild what once was rightfully theirs.

Late Breaking News


* Fuel deliveries to service stations delayed
* Logistics groups feel the biggest impact

By Agnieszka Flak and Tiisetso Motsoeneng

JOHANNESBURG, Oct 2 (Reuters) - South Africa's fuel suppliers are starting to feel the pinch as a strike by more than 20,000 truck drivers enters its second week, with deliveries to pumps delayed and stations running out of certain types of fuel, an industry body said on Tuesday.

The walkout by drivers asking for higher wages has affected 40 percent of fuel tanker trucks, it said, adding to pressure on Africa's biggest economy from wildcat strikes by 75,000 miners in the platinum and gold sectors.

"We are operating under difficult challenges. We are seeing more and more delays of fuel trucks into service stations," said Avhapfani Tshifularo, head of the South African Petroleum Industry Association.

"More service stations will start running short of certain grades of fuel if it continues into next week," he added.

The fuel suppliers in South Africa include Shell, BP, Total, Chevron, local petrochemicals group Sasol and Engen, which is majority-owned by Malaysian state oil group Petronas.

Hundreds of striking truck drivers marched in the centre of Johannesburg on Tuesday, chanting and waving cardboard placards, demanding a 12 percent rise in wages. Employers have so far offered an increase of 8.5 percent.

"We drive big trucks but we don't even make 2,000 rand ($240) a week. I only make that if I work overtime," said David Mohlahlo, one of the protesters.

Talks between unions and the employers were expected to resume on Wednesday.

The strike by truckers has mainly impacted transport and logistics companies.

"We are severely affected," said Marius Swanepoel, chief executive of Imperial Holding's logistics unit, whose fleet of 5,000 trucks hauls consumer goods and fuel.

"In some of our depots between 50 and 80 percent of our trucks are not on the road," he added.

Rival Super Group is losing up to 6 million rand a week, chief executive Peter Mountford told Reuters.

"There are 3,000 trucks that are meant to be on the road but they are not," he said.

Other affected companies include Grindrod, Barloworld and Bidvest. Mining and manufacturing groups said they could suffer if a prolonged strike cut deliveries of diesel used to run heavy machinery.

A long strike could also affect electricity supply in South Africa, which relies on coal for 85 percent of its power. Almost a third of coal is moved by trucks, power utility Eskom said.

"There are five stations which are at risk of falling below their minimum days' stock levels if the strike persists," Eskom said.

An interruption in coal supplies would further strain Eskom, which is already struggling to meet rising demand for electricity and is hoping to avoid rolling blackouts that brought South Africa's industry to its knees in early 2008. ($1 = 8.3194 South African rand)

Hi Tia Mysoa, interesting read as usual. you were thinking that many people have contingency plans and we are a resilient people, are you talking about white people including white liberals or are you also talking about the black masses as well. You were also saying that people could wake up tomorrow or it could take another 10 years, could we last that long at this rate of plunder for another 10 years, just asking??? "making it the ideal time for South Africa’s culturally-diverse minority groups to regroup and to rebuild what once was rightfully theirs."
Are you not being an idealist saying that.
Do you also believe that people have contingency plans and could it mean that people are planning to emigrate or have foreign passports at their disposal? What other plans could they have?
If you are correct that a time will come when the minority groups get back what was rightfully theirs, that would be great, but if you are wrong then we are very badly doomed to die in this God forsaken country, not so, and as we get older it will be very hard to cope and live here or survive. What if the rand devalues like Zimbabwe and the rand is worthless e.g 10 million rand can buy you one dollar etc. then to emigrate is out of the question, it is already difficult with the present exchange rate.

Could you please respond to my comment and give me your views on this matter in more detail what you think I would appreciate it. Cheers.
P.S. I hope Mike Smith is well and safe and will be back soon , getting concerned about him, his site is still down.

@Anon (9:31 AM)
I tried to keep this posting short, while simultaneously conveying the message that we should not forget the true colours of the ANC (hence the link to the Global Terrorism Database), and neither should we fall for their deceit and lies. The posting also conveys the message that the current strike actions and chaos we see fits nicely into their agenda of a National Democratic Revolution.

I must admit that I was hesitant to post this as a lot of other related factors are not mentioned in this posting, for example, the fact that the ANC’s ultimate long-term goal is to unite Africa politically and economically – an unrealistic dream that the ANC cannot afford to sponsor, but which will, no doubt, produce more turmoil and racial-instability while they try. I can just imagine the chaos that will ensue if the ANC decides to covertly import ‘the services’ of militant Islamic elements to assist with their revolution. The likelihood of this happening was left out of this posting as it was covered in a previous article here.

In the end I opted to incorporate some positive thoughts into the posting, based on recent firsthand observation of people’s attitudes. The ANC is going down (and they know it) but they will not go down without a fight. The current strike actions are mere drill-exercises in preparation for the big event. But, like I said – they’ve thus far underestimated the resilience of the average South Africa (Black, White, Coloured, Indian), hence the reason why they have now, quite recently, adopted new strategies (of all sorts) to draw ordinary law-abiding Christian folk into their revolution. The ‘strategy of all sorts’ perhaps deserves a separate more detailed posting, but it has been briefly touched in a previous posting titled: Falling into the trap of Ochlocracy.

Regarding your question related to contingency plans: Everyone (including blacks and liberal whites) have an adaptable and flexible plan of some sort. It would not be wise to advertise what these plans entail. The bottom line is to remain calm while being continuously prepared for the worst-case scenario. The “worst-case scenario” is not a country that has seen its arse economically (no fuel, no supplies, no cash, no leadership, etc..); it is rather a reference to a once-off Rwanda-styl occurrence, which I seriously doubt will happen in SA, especially now in an informed world dominated by techno-marvels such as social networking, etc. Don’t forget also that South Africa still has a reasonably well-equipped and experienced Police Force. It may not have members of the same quality and calibre as the one we previously had, but they nevertheless still remain the thin blue line.

I will continue shortly in a follow-up comment

Follow-up comment in response to questions by Anon (9:31 AM):

Firstly, for those who may not be aware of this (eg: newcomers to this blog ;-)… When I speak of the ANC it is a reference to the entire tripartite gang, Cosatu, SACP, and the ANC. The SACP are the big decision-makers and schemers. They receive their orders from a higher entity who manipulate events on a global scale. The ANC leaders are mere puppets, so it doesn’t really matter what happens at Mangaung. The whole business is merely a grand show-off to convince everyone how powerfully ‘democratic’ and ‘socialist’ the ANC are. The grand event is, of course, also an opportunity that will allow a few more hogs into the big fat party.

When and IF the country reaches a point of total collapse - i.e. on a similar scale we saw happening in Zimbabwe, it will be a reawakening for many and also the ideal time for the leaders of minority groups to step forward and offer solutions. Groups (eg. Afrikaner/Boers) who have been denied the right to self-determination will have stronger arguments supporting their cause. On this note I must also add that it’s time these people grow-up and start getting their act together (I say no more!)

The wheels and cogs of this country can still turn for another 50-odd years – even at this rate of plunder!

When I said, “It can happen tomorrow or it can happen in 10 years from now,” I was referring to the political collapse of the ANC and the consequent change of leadership. Several political analysts (and not only Helen Zille) are of the opinion that the ANC will be outvoted in the National Elections of 2019. IF that happens the ANC will return to full-scale terrorist tactics – and you may mark my words on that!

Sorry, I haven’t answered all your questions - pertaining to foreign passports and so forth. But, don’t loose sight of the fact that South Africa is a big country with plenty remote and secluded spaces. It is quite easy to disappear completely from under the government radar and live a life of bliss and happiness… It’s a matter of personal choice!

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.
