May we never forget...

Church Street bombing, Pretoria - 20 May 1983

The Church Street bombing was a car bomb attack on 20 May 1983 in Pretoria, authorised by the ANC chief terrorist, Oliver Tambo. Nineteen people, including 10 civilians and two bomb-planters, died in the explosion. Of the 217 people injured, 114 were civilians.

May we never forget this cowardly and ghastly act of terror committed by the ANC!

It sickens me to the core to think that Africa’s largest airport is named after Oliver Tambo and that so many streets and buildings have also been renamed in honour of this terrorist. Even his grave has been declared a National Heritage site!

I suppose there was no moment of silence today in parliament.

BTW – Tomorrow (21 May) is Savate Day. It is the only date marked by 32 Battalion as a general Remembrance Day for all those who had fallen while serving in the battalion. Click here to view an older posting regarding Savate Day.

Tia, you make me proud, thanks. So many SA citizens don't even think of this day anymore. What to say commemorate it. It was a black day in SA then. Caused by blacks. And yes, 4 May and SAVATI day, I commemorate both every year.

And the west called these anc killers freedom fighters...

Let us remember all the ex service men who through their heroic actions prevented far worse atrocities from occuring.

I don’t have much time for traitors who make arse-creeping statements like these, and don’t believe they should be given any attention at all.

A few weeks ago the De Klerk Foundation had quite a mouthful to say about the government's failure to tackle joblessness and poor education, the spiralling social and economic woes in SA, how the ANC has rekindled unnecessary racial acrimony by blaming everything on apartheid, and the unequal society we live in – as the consequence of the failure of government policy.

Our country is like a man with boils, sitting on a dung-heap of confusion and dismay. De Klerk, by handing us to the communists on a silver platter, gave us a grievous bayonet wound in the stomach, but this new ‘democracy’ has dismembered us entirely.
Now, some nineteen years later a dazed nation stands watching as promises of a better future dissolve in the sizzling acids of disillusion. The bell that tolled a ‘peaceful transition’ on 27 April 1994, now knells the death of a once relatively peaceful and prosperous nation. This circus philosophy that national well-being can be achieved by writing God out of the constitution, replacing skilled personnel with unskilled and inexperienced ‘affirmative action’ appointees, and blaming all the ills besetting the country on ‘apartheid’, has now come to an end and the clowns who believed in it, lie dazed and bleeding on the sawdust floor.
Now we find ourselves in a tragic travail of runaway crime, government mismanagement and corruption costing the (mainly white) taxpayers literally untold billions, and it has become obvious that many innocent people are getting hurt as a result. Production in factories and mines is being reduced, or they are being shut down altogether; workers are being paid off while the unions incessantly toyi-toyi, strike and continually ‘demand’ while none of those workers are prepared to increase productivity. Hunger and cold are taking their toll; our farmers are systematically being murdered; children are underfed and the despair of unemployed fathers is increasing. Instead of promised houses and prosperity, unsightly ‘Mandela-, Hani- and Slovovilles’ of tin, plastic and board are mushrooming in every town and city as people hope to get work. Hordes of idle street children multiply by the day because the parents cannot, or will not accept responsibility for them.
Perhaps we have one last chance to rescue ourselves from this cesspool of crime and immorality which the country has fallen into. To quote the Israeli Prime Minister at the time of the Entebbe raid in 1976: “If we believe in freedom, there comes a time when we must fight in defence of it, no matter what the consequences, otherwise we demean ourselves and lose all moral claim to be a government.” And the only way to return to our senses is to hear the word of God as He says in 2 Chronicles 7:14: “…and My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

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.
