Riots and more riots everywhere


Now how’s this for idiocy?

There’s so much of this riotous behaviour going on in South Africa right now - it’s really hard to keep up with it all.

In the past week, residents of Sebokeng, south of Johannesburg, vowed never to vote for the African National Congress again, saying the ANC-led government had failed them. 

(We've heard this same old story repeated year in and year out. Yet, come election time they will vote for the ANC again!?!?)

Protesters barricaded roads and promised to continue protests until government acceded to their demands. In Boiketlong, Sebokeng, residents insisted they be addressed by Zuma, not Gauteng premier Nomvula Mokonyane.

(They will always find an excuse to riot, which is why I don’t want these buggers living in my neighbourhood. Yes, go ahead and call me a racist if you want!)

In Bronkhorstspruit, east of Pretoria, government officials tried to do damage control on Thursday after residents this week torched several buildings including a clinic, hall, and library. 

(Now how’s that for idiocy? As I said: “…I don’t want these buggers living in my neighbourhood.”)

Human settlements MEC Ntombi Mekgwe said on Friday that the violent protests in Gauteng could be linked to the upcoming national elections.

(What nonsense they speak! These hooligans will continue with their lawlessness after the elections on 7 May 2014 – mark my words!)

Tia, yes, fires all over SA. And it will not end after 7 May, in fact it will escalate. These baboons will blame anything, anyone, but to take some responsibility and blame themselves? Not in our lifetime. There is also rumours of a so called "third force", what else will they dig up? And yes please, the less you have to do with these intellectual failures, the better.

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.
