Gupta Airbus – A Decoy?

DJ MAC spins into action in MARK WIGGETT's latest cartoon

There are so many weird aspects related to the unauthorized landings of the Gupta aircraft at AFB Waterkloof that it won’t surprise me if a book about ‘Guptagate’ will soon see the light.

I sincerely hope that whoever is planning on writing such a book will also look into the ‘worst case scenario’ this blog sketched in the previous posting related to this issue, because I find it rather odd that the mainstream media has not uttered a word about the underworld funding of Jet Airways owner Naresh Goyal. They could have at least, as a bare minimum, looked into the reasons why Jet Airways struggled for more than 2 years to get the necessary clearances from US authorities to fly to the United States, but they didn’t.

Neither has the media questioned the fact why Sun City in South Africa was chosen for the wedding venue, and not one of the many lavish wedding venues in India. See, for example, Top 5 Wedding Venues in India, or Top 10 Expensive Wedding Venues in India.

Big Indian Wedding

But no, the Gupta family chose South Africa instead - and one cannot help but wonder why.

The previous posting may not have been all that clear on the actual extent of the Gupta invasion into South Africa, and how a decoy was possibly used to dupe the media and the rest of us. Whatever the case, it could not have been done without some insider assistance.

It is no secret anymore that drug trafficking is hugely financing today's global terrorism, and that Muslim terrorists have also intensified their onslaught in Africa. We South Africans tend to leave things until the last minute before reacting to a crisis, hence the reason why the overwhelming majority of us don’t really care much about the activities of Muslim terrorists, even when their activities are taking place almost on our doorstep - like next door in Botswana, for example, where 28 suspects were recently arrested on suspicion of raising funds for Al-Qaeda-linked terrorist groups. Why are South Africans not alarmed by this, considering that we know the country to be a heaven (and a haven) for criminals and terrorists?

At this point in time we know that South African authorities were not completely in the dark about the Gupta’s requests for the use of OR Tambo International Airport and AFB Waterkloof. The Minister of Transport, Ben Martins, reportedly turned down a request for the use of OR Tambo - while the Minister of Defence and Military Veterans, Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula, reportedly turned down a request for the use of AFB Waterkloof (see Sunday Independent report. Info – thanks to David Maynier’s article published on Politics Web).

The denial of the Gupta’s requests for the use of OR Tambo is suspicious in itself, considering that Jet Airways has, since December 2012, a codeshare agreement with South African Airways – according to Wikipedia. Why do I get the feeling that certain authorities knew something was cooking and wanted to cover their own backsides?

Only much later did the South African media, by mouth of Rapport (the skunks) expose the fact that the Gupta invasion was far bigger than previously thought, and that besides the Airbus A330 - there were other aircraft at AFB Waterkloof, including Sahara's Cessna Sovereign executive jet, as well as several (about eight) helicopters. See Rapport’s article: Gupta-bruilof: Hier is die 2de skande.

The Rapport article has a photograph of the Cessna Citation Sovereign jet standing at AFB Waterkloof, on the same day the Airbus A330 landed there. The Cessna jet also landed without any authorization, but this news was only published on Sunday, 5 May. All media attention focused on the larger plane.

Why do I get the feeling the larger plane was the decoy in the whole operation, and that attention was deliberately diverted from the other aircraft for reasons that will probably never come to light – no matter how long the ANC government looks into the whole sordid affair?

Whatever comes out of this scandal, I hope it shatters the ANC into a million little fragments, and that it will lead to the long overdue ousting of President Jacob Zuma – as advocated in this latest report.

Why the big drug dealers never get caught - (This old posting, published in April 2009, deals with the massive global network of drug-smuggling, and how its tentacles reach into the very core of our governments where corrupt officials wheel and deal behind the scenes. The posting explains why the so-called War on Drugs will never end, and introduces an excellent book, titled:  “Shadow Masters: An International Network of Governments and Secret-Service Agencies Working Together with Drugs Dealers and Terrorists for Mutual Benefit and Profit." The book is unfortunately out of stock at, but still available through amazon.)

Tia, we will never know the truth behind the scenes. If I recall, there is a Bilderberg meeting comming up soon in the UK (I think). This is all tied in to the NWO (I know it sounds crazy to many), but Zuma is only a puppet as is Obama. Soros and a few others rule this world on behalf of (you know who :) )

Keep up the good work.

I see mike smith has taken a break! An avid fan for the last 2 years, i cannot help but get annoyed when he removes it or allow "only members" to read. What is the point? build up your readers and then remove all the material? whilst compiling a book? F&&***king irritating!

Some of the 11 Tshwane metro police officers – suspended for moonlighting as VIP security at the Gupta wedding – claim to have video footage showing illicit drugs offloaded from the Gupta chartered jet. They have allegedly blackmailed the Tshwane Metro Police Department to drop the charges or else they will release the mysterious video.

The Sunday Independent was informed that the police officers tried to indirectly negotiate a plea bargain with the head of metro police Steven Ngobeni by threatening to go public with the video footage.

Three sources, two top city officials and an insider with intimate knowledge of the matter, confirmed the stand off between the metro police and its officers... Continue reading on IOL News.

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.

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.
