Whether it was the Ebola outbreak, drowning of African refugees in the Mediterranean, famines, the return of the god-President, the International Criminal Court or popular uprisings by young people demanding revolutionary change, the out-going Chairperson of the African Union Commission failed Africa. Her successor must be someone who understands, cares about and has a vision for the continent and its people.

In April 2016, Dr. Nkosazana Clarice Dlamini-Zuma announced that she had decided to return to South Africa rather than run for a second term as the Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union (AU). For close observers this did not really come as a surprise as she appeared to spend less time on the institution than she did navigating the entrails of South Africa’s politics.  Ahead of her announcement, the Mail and Guardian reported on 29 March that Dlamini-Zuma was “likely to return to South Africa to run for a top ANC leadership position, possibly for president to succeed her ex-husband, President Jacob Zuma.” Dlamini-Zuma is a leading member of South Africa’s corrupt ruling African National Congress (ANC) and was for 16 years spouse of the incumbent President. Their divorce was reportedly formalized in 1982.

Later this month in Kigali, Rwanda, the Summit of the Heads of State and Governments of the AU will elect a successor to Dr. Dlamini-Zuma. As they prepare to do that, it is appropriate to look back at her tenure so that the institution avoids the kind of errors that made it such a lamentable misadventure. It did not have to be so. Dr. Dlamini-Zuma arrived at the African Union on the back of a stellar public service and political career in South Africa where she served four successive presidents, including Nelson Mandela, as minister responsible for health, foreign affairs, and home affairs. When she arrived in Addis Ababa to assume office as the Chairperson of the AU Commission in October 2012, many believed that Dr. Dlamini-Zuma would usher in a brave new era in the history of the institution. She boasted many firsts: the first woman to head the AU; the first head of the AU from southern Africa and the first head of the AU with liberation credentials. In the end, she will be remembered for another first: the first head of the AU to leave as an utter failure. Her biggest legacy will probably be her eponymous Twitter handle, mostly famous for its preoccupation with fatuous nonsense.

On 9 June 2016, Le Monde Afrique ran an article asking in effect: “How Did Mrs Zuma Mess Up (the AU)?”, asserting that her tenure was characterized by a lack of vision and silence that “accelerated the decline of the AU.” All these failings were willful, not inadvertent When  Dlamini-Zuma began her tenure in 2012, the AU confronted significant challenges in the spheres of peace, security and governance in Africa, as well as institutional reform and social affairs. Like T.S. Eliot’s Macavity, she looked “outwardly respectable.” Like Macavity also, she was just “not there.” As she arrived, South Sudan was wrestling with a transition to stable independence that threatened to get quite bloody. On the governance front, accountable government in Africa confronted growing authoritarianism with far reaching implications for peace and security in many parts of the continent. Accountability for grave crimes by Africa’s leaders faced frustration in Kenya and Sudan. Institutionally, many countries were in arrears of their dues and the AU was increasingly dependent on foreign governments and donors for its running. During her tenure, Africa confronted multiple social challenges: Ebola in West Africa; Yellow Fever in parts of Southern Africa; climate change and food security around the Sahel and Horn of Africa, as well as an international migration crisis.

On each and all of these challenges, Dr Dlamini-Zuma was out to lunch or “ blissfully missing in action. ” Take South Sudan, for instance. Under the watch of Dr. Dlamini-Zuma, South Sudan descended into fratricide. Following a lead provided by anyone but her, the AU constituted a Commission of Inquiry chaired by Nigeria’s former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, which reported in early 2015 recommending a mix of measures, including judicial accountability. Thereafter, the report went cold. Under her watch, the relationship of the AU and the International Criminal Court (ICC), whose Prosecutor is another daughter of Africa – The Gambia’s Fatou Bensouda collapsed. At the Summit that elected her as Chair of the AU Commission in 2012, a High Level Panel on alternative funding for the AU again chaired by former President Obasanjo had reported that “the current system of statutory contributions, which had been in place since the OAU days, has been deemed to no longer be adequate to meet the growing financing needs of the Union due to greater operational requirements and increased scope of activities”. As she leaves, this report decorates the shelves of Dr. Dlamini-Zuma’s $200 million AU palace, constructed and donated by the Chinese. Her lasting legacy is that civil society will be excluded from the AU summit that elects her successor.

Under the watch of Dr. Dlamini-Zuma, the continent was allowed to squander the energies released by popular uprisings against authoritarianism. When Egypt’s army set upon young people whose only crime was to dare to dream and organize for a country in freedom in 2013, Dr. Dlamini-Zuma lost her voice. Under her watch, the “god-President ” returned. In Congo-Brazzaville, Chad, Rwanda and Uganda, elected presidents tore up the constitutions under which they were elected and installed themselves gods. In Burundi, where another president’s desire for god-Presidency turned murderous, Dr. Dlamini-Zuma conveniently outsourced her responsibilities and disappeared. Her dereliction on governance now threatens the Democratic Republic of the Congo where the desire of the incumbent president for god-Presidency meets a country unwilling to accept man as god. In Burkina Faso where the people managed to topple their presidential serial killer, Blaise Compaore, after 27 years of repressive power, it was in spite of Dr. Dlamini-Zuma’s complicit abdication not because of her leadership.

It was in social affairs, however, that the extent of Dr. Dlamini-Zuma’s dereliction would confound even her few most ardent admirers. As a supposed-to-be trained “medical professional, “ many credited her with the qualifications to care when Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) came calling in February 2014. Characteristically, however, she managed to abdicate on that too. While EVD held sway in Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria,  Dlamini-Zuma avoided those countries. By contrast, Dr. Donald Kaberuka, her counterpart at the African Development Bank (AfDB) took to the road to visit the affected countries, raise resources and compel the world to act. While Dr. Kaberuka showed his mettle in this most difficult of situations, Dlamini-Zuma was missing conspicuously. Under Dr. Dlamini-Zuma’s watch, thousands of Africans drowned crossing the Mediterranean into Europe. Many more Africans have been slaughtered by the extremist violence of Al-Shabaab, Boko Haram and Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). They are uncounted, unknown, unnamed and un-mourned. To their murder,  Dlamini-Zuma offered neither compassion nor counterpoise. Under her, the African life could well be worthless. Two years after she was elected to Chairperson of the AU,  Dlamini-Zuma allowed her ex-husband to put her name forward on the ANC’s list for the 2014 general election in South Africa. It therefore became evident that for her, Addis Ababa was, from the start, a place to cool her heels, preserve herself and prepare to collect South Africa’s highest political prize like a promised alimony settlement. In one word,  Dlamini-Zuma didn’t know Africa and only cared about her ambitions back home. She just didn’t care about the African.

When Africa’s Heads of State meet later this July in Kigali to elect the next Chairperson of the AU Commission, they should draw a line under the misadventure that has been Dlamini-Zuma’s tenure. Candidates should be required to present a coherent vision of the Africa they wish to lead and demonstrate an interest in the continent and its peoples. A debate among the leading candidates would be worthwhile. Politicians, like Dlamini-Zuma, in pursuit of other distractions, should be told they are surplus to requirements. The AU should look for someone who knows the continent and cares about its people. As  Dlamini-Zuma slinks back to the deepening sleaze that threatens to unravel her march to the prize in South Africa that she treasures above the lives of ordinary Africans, many will be forgiven for screaming: “Good riddance, Mrs. Dlamini-Zuma….!”



1) In April 1995 Dlamini-Zuma, then serving as health minister, awarded a R14.27m contract to her friend, Mbongeni Ngema, without after the required tender procedures. In terms of the contract Ngema undertook to produce a sequel to the popular musical Sarafina. Sarafina II, as it was to be known, was intended to tour SA carrying a strong anti-Aids message aimed at the youth. The musical never hit the stage and the money was squandered. Dlamini-Zuma lied to parliament and refused to account for her profligacy. Unfortunately for taxpayers, and fortunately for her, then president Nelson Mandela protected her and she remained unjustifiably exculpate. In today’s money we estimate that Dlamini-Zuma blew at least R50m of our money. Gareth van Onselen who wrote an excellent analysis of the scandal for Business Day in April 2016, labelled Dlamini-Zuma’s Sarafina II the original Nkandla. Sarafina II was the first big corruption scandal to hit our new democratic government.

3) During her tenure as Health Minister, between October 1998 and March 2002 – the exact period in which Virodene was being tested – the ANC blocked the provision of anti-retrovirals through the public health care system in South Africa. This action resulted in tens of thousands of newborns unnecessarily contracting HIV from their mothers and suspected to have died.

4) Dlamini-Zuma introduced the Tobacco Products Amendment Bill in 1999, which made it illegal to smoke in public buildings that cost businesses millions to ensure compliance

5) On 5 November 2017, the Sunday Times newspaper published photographs linking Dlamini-Zuma to senior figures in cigarette smuggling organizations operating in South Africa.

6) Mhlanga helped pen the 1996 Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act. Sisulu, Dlamini-Zuma and others made sure it passed. Abortions became legal.

7) She accepted a R250,000 cash award from ANN7, then Gupta-owned, and ceremonially handed over by Zuma.

The woman who may be pushed into power by the corrupt ANC as South Africa’s next president – and its first female president – is on the list of individuals accused of illegally washing the proceeds of criminal activity through global financial systems. Presidential hopeful Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, ex-wife to President Jacob Zuma and former chairperson of the African Union Commission, is among the Zuma family members on a list handed to UK and EU law enforcement authorities.

THIS is the individual the ANC corrupt Mob Inc. wants to force upon innocent South Africans. This is the individual they protect , groom and nurture to become South Africa’s next president.  It was this same Medusa to which Cyril Ramaphosa handed down the ultimate decision power during the Covid-19 “lockdown”- and it was this same woman that immediately imposed draconian rules and erratic regulations that made millions of people loose their jobs, millions more that now face starvation- and thousands of businesses being forced to close due to misdirected and incompetent “assumptions.” It was under the iron rule of this psychopathic individual  that millions of people were forced to wear stupid dehumanizing masks-enforced curfews, limitations on movement and freedom imposed,  innocent people harassed, abused , threatened, arrested and in certain incidents killed for not complying to her mad and illogical “bans.” Between her and that other degenerate Bheki Cele– they have brutally abused their powers and enslaved a whole population for the duration of  3 months. It was under this woman that South Africa now faces a  total financial melt down and the debt clock’s hands  now running off the face. This is inexcusable and totally unacceptable. This will never happen again! She must be banished never to lay her greedy incompetent claws on any South African institution or organ again.


No photo description available.

It was under this same woman that South Africa finally became the latest addition to Africa’s failed legacy. She-like her ex-husband- is a total walking disaster. They are scrupulous con artists and thieves that abuses the right of law for their own selfish enrichment. Behind multiple “laws” they hide- behind multiple laws they promoted their own vindictive greed. Behind multiple “laws” they destroyed the economy, incarcerated the people, dehumanized the populace to the status of mere animals. Wearing a silly mask is an age old  symbol of slavery. They have no conscious-no respect for human life- they  just have a tribal  clan mentality that have no compassion for others bar themselves. And when people get frustrated with this Stalinist behavior- they have the audacity to cry “fowl”, “racism” and run to the Human Rights Commission. Ironically have they abused but every human rights law on the book- but never have been charged for crimes against humanity YET! Presently the brutal and  corrupt ANC,  that Nkandla  family- and especially this woman- are  the most hated individuals in South Africa.  With the backing of that terrorist party she belongs to and  their president that has no patriotism for the country but rather pushing his own dark and destructive “socialist” agendas – she destroyed the social and financial lives of millions of people. She was unfit for the African Union- she is unfit to be a minister- and she was unfit to be heading this “lockdown” with all the powers to make or break a country. She totally destroyed the country in two months- and for that the ANC as a party,( – not the government as the tax payer again would be saddled with the debt,) their Executive Council- and all the members of the National Corona Council must individually be held responsible , legally accountable – and forced to pay compensation to the millions of lives they have recklessly destroyed in their mad quest for ultimate supreme power.


ONE BLACK  criminal in America dies- the world goes ape shit. 20 White farmers are brutally murdered  in SA this past 2 months- the world cares ape shit. Now THAT is hippocracy!

This individual is pure evil. Her ANC party is demonic. Their reign is brutal and smut with tyranny. God forbid if she ever was to become president. That would be the shortest and surest way to a blitzkrieg Arabian spring. The ANC rule us no more. We totally deny and detest their Orwellian  brutal authority. They are not worth to be a government and will rule us no more- they are a mob of arrogant Mafioso tsotsis and will be treated as such- with discontent. After this Covid-19 fiasco South Africa must distance themselves from this hooligan ANC  party full of rogue wolves. This “lockdown” only showed us just how psychopathic the rulers in the ANC has become. They have made a total mockery of Nelson Mandela’s inauguration speech. We as people of this country now oppose the rule of the ANC on every level and by every means we have. They do not belong in government anymore. They have arrested 243 000 innocent citizens for all kinds of mediocre offenses during this “lockdown” hoax- and in turn released 19 000 hardened criminals. Now THAT is the way the ANC operates!   Behind their political barbarism and Ramaphosa’s blatant lies they caused the country irreversible damage that will take the economy months if not years- to recover again.

Courts now take charge and lashes out at  the Zuma-curse

The comeback of the rule of law is back  at last. That any country could have been run by an obscure criminal committee of 6 , issuing pantomime regulations , by which a whole country was supposed to be run– is simply mind-boggling to say the least! That whole Act must go. Parliament was suspended by them , the courts closed down 90% for 5 weeks , police and military turned on citizens. Coup de Tat – Coup de Grace – Coup de Regs .. our with the grim hijacking of our Constitution! The High Court has ruled that lock-down regulations of all levels are invalid and unconstitutional. But the court has suspended the declaration for a period of 14 days. This means that the alert level 3 regulations remain in operation for now. The court has directed the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, in consultation with the relevant ministers to review, amend and republish the regulations. This is with “due consideration to the limitation each regulation has on the rights guaranteed in the bill of rights”. Cabinet said that it would make a further statement once it had fully studied the judgment.

The North Gauteng High Court made another landmark ruling on Wednesday by amending the National Disaster Act legislation which deals with Covid-19 patients quarantined at state facilities. This follows an application by lobby group AfriForum, which asked the court to force Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma to allow patients who can self-isolate (at home or any other facility) to do so. Dlamini-Zuma did not oppose the application. The minister and AfriForum handed a draft order to Judge JW Louw on May 27 in which they agreed to the amendments. It was based on that agreement that Judge Louw made it an order of the court on Wednesday.The ANC now opposes the judgement and launched an appeal against the judgement. Furthermore did this criminal Dhlamini Zuma requested for an extension of the lock-down for one month until July 15 2020. She simply doesn’t give up. Her offspring must keep a stranglehold on the illicit cigarette trade- now must he? The idea to extend the lockdown was to extend the smoke ban and buy more time to go to court.

AS you can see- this corrupt individual is hell-bent on fighting more for the tobacco ban to stay   to protect her own family’s interests in illicit cigarette smuggling – than really caring what is the wishes  for the people of the country.

The amended regulation now states:

“Regulation 6 and 7 published by Dlamini-Zuma on April 29 in terms of Section 27 (2) are to be interpreted and applied as follows: A person who has been confirmed, as a clinical case or as a confirmed case or having contracted Covid-19, or who is suspected of having contracted Covid-19, or who has been in contact with a person who is a carrier of Covid-19: is only required to be quarantined or self-isolate at a state facility or other designated quarantine site; when that person is unable to self-quarantine or self-isolate, or refuses to do so, or violates the self-quarantine or self-regulation rules.” Judge Louw said to successfully self-quarantine, a person requires access to a separate room, adding “no one else must sleep or spend time in the room”. “That person must also be able to contact and/or return to a health facility if their condition worsens,” Judge Louw ordered. The North Gauteng High Court on Tuesday declared all ock-down regulations unconstitutional and invalid, giving Dlamini-Zuma 14 days to review, amend and republish the regulations with “due consideration to the limitation each regulation has on the rights guaranteed in the Bill of Rights”.

Medusa Zuma missing her first court appearance already

Co-operative governance & traditional affairs minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma faces the prospect of being pursued for contempt of court after missing a court-ordered deadline to file an answer to the first major legal challenge to the government’s controversial cigarette ban. The minister had until the close of business on Wednesday to respond under oath to lobby group Fair-Trade Independent Tobacco Association’s (Fita’s) challenge to the rationality of the tobacco ban, which is due to be heard by the high court in Pretoria next week.

Image may contain: 1 person, text

It’s been a week, that’s for sure. The government has had their lockdown policies chewed up and spat out by the High Court, and for the third time in the last few days, Cabinet’s representatives have been dealt another blow to their legal ambitions – and it’s all to do with the controversial cigarette ban. It was confirmed on Thursday evening that the government had failed to secure a postponement in their battle with the Fair-Trade Independent Tobacco Association (FITA). This is the second time the state has been unsuccessful in trying push the hearing back, and it tops off an exhausting string of defeats.

Dlhamini-Zuma & Co told to face the music…

On Tuesday, the entire set of lockdown regulations were declared invalid, sending shock waves across South Africa. The cigarette ban, however, was left out of the verdict. Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma was slapped with a cost order and told to rewrite the restrictions in a manner that stays true to the country’s Bill of Rights. The day after that – in the same courtroom, no less – it was ruled that the state could not put people into mandatory quarantine facilities, quashing one of the government’s flagship responses to the crisis.

All up in smoke for corrupt Zuma, Ramaphosa  & Co

The corrupt ANC regime was dealt another major blow in the egal battle over cigarette ban The state’s attempt to buy itself more time has fallen flat, and whether they like it or lump it, the government face a courtroom showdown next week. So by the time Judge President Dunstan Mlambo dismissed their attempt to postpone a showdown with FITA over the cigarette ban next week, their losing streak had gained the momentum of a runaway freight train. The matter is now expected to be heard next Tuesday and Wednesday (9-10 June), at the Pretoria High Court. Dlamini-Zuma and her shrewd cronies had asked for more time to submit supplementary affidavits but inexplicably missed the 3 June deadline.

In an incredible turn of events, the Squirrel Ramaphosa has admitted that he has no empirical evidence to support the continued ban of cigarettes and other tobacco products under the current level 3 lock-down regulations. The Democratic Alliance (DA), in a written parliamentary question, asked the Squirrel  “[on] what empirical evidence did the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) [rely on] to collectively (a) ban the sale of tobacco products during the national lock-down to curb the spread of Covid-19”. Instead of providing any shred of empirical data, as the question requested, the Squirrel responded that the ban was based on “the submissions received [and] relevant medical literature focusing inter alia on the effects of smoking on public and individual health, especially in the face of a respiratory illness such as Covid-19”.

 Ramaphosa’s failure to produce any evidence is a clear indication that there wasn’t any empirical evidence to support the ban in the first place. The continued punting of submissions received is also ludicrous given the fact that government only received 454 public submissions in favour of the tobacco ban. When asked about the date the government envisaged that the ban on the sale of tobacco products would be lifted, the Squirrel  indicated that “[at] this stage, it is difficult to determine when the ban on the sale of tobacco and related products will be lifted”. This answer from the Squirrel is in stark contrast to comments by the Minister in the Presidency, Jackson Mthembu who said the smoking ban would be lifted in level 2. While the government continues to tie itself in knots over the ban and criminalization of smoking, it is evident that the ban has nothing to do with the impact of smoking on public and individual health, and has seemingly everything to do with whims and wills Nappyhead Dlamini-Zuma and those in the illicit trade who would benefit from such a ban. Government cannot continue to mislead the public and Parliament on the reasons for the nonsensical ban on tobacco products.

This is not mere speculation, nor is it conspiracy theory. Over the past two months I have gathered information from every possible online source, I have studied views and opinions from a diversity of political leanings and ideologies, I have revisited the RSA Constitution and Disaster Management Act. I have again gone over the ANC presidential election of 2017, the machinations and implications of the outcome. I have observed the implementation of the Act and, along with millions of others, have puzzled over the curious regulations attached thereto.
And finally, I have called upon my own lifelong observation of the ANC and their peculiar brand of Communism/ Socialism/ Africanism.

She has found the fountain of eternal youth as well? Truly Amazing!

The roots of the ANC/SACP ideology are deeply implanted in Stalinism, with a good dosage of Maoism thrown in. Founded as an organization to primarily secure equal rights for black South Africans, the exposure of generations of leadership to the Stalinist/Maoist ideology, along with conveniently targeted aspects of African tribal tradition, particularly the elitism of leadership, has morphed into the ANC of today. The failure and fall of Soviet communism has been no deterrent, has brought about no change of heart. China was always ready, willing and able to take over the reins, which fits in perfectly with their expansionist policies. Factionalism has always been part and parcel of the ANC. But so too has towing the line, once any particular faction gains ascendency. For a while. Changing allegiance from faction to faction for personal gain is also nothing new. But it is a fine line that members must walk, for punishments are real, and harsh. Loyalty, however, is lavishly rewarded. Memories are very long in the ANC, and losing a factional battle does not mean that the fight is over. Over one hundred years of scheming, plotting and backstabbing have been ingrained into the institutional memory.

Ramaphosa beat Dlamini Zuma by the narrowest of margins in December 17. This inevitably created a situation where promises had to be kept, compromises made, pay offs honored.
The curious situation of the NWC being in the hands of the Zuma faction and the Government in the hands of the Ramaphosa faction has, until now, effectively created a stalemate. Neither faction could fully apply their agendas, thus the stagnant two years of the Ramaphosa presidency. But the factions of the ANC do not sleep. Scheming and plotting continue. Never make the mistake of thinking the factional leadership are stupid. They are, in fact, past masters at playing this game. They have to be. It’s life or death. Immense wealth and prestige versus abject poverty and ostracism. They’ll use every tool at their disposal, legal or not. Remember too that the ANC NEC considers any member they place in any position a deployee, and may withdraw or redeploy them at any time. South Africa is in the unique position where we are not ultimately led by a president. We have a collective presidency where the majority in cabinet rules. The president is merely the figurehead and spokesperson for the cabinet. And ultimately, South Africa is governed from Luthuli House, not the Union Buildings.

The Curious Case of Dlamini Zuma’s cabinet position.

As a narrowly defeated presidential candidate, one would have expected Dlamini Zuma to be appointed Deputy President, or at least to one of the prestige Security portfolios. Instead, she became Minister of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs. Now bear in mind that co-operative government is covered in chapter three of the constitution, right after the Bill of Rights, underlining the importance of the cabinet post. This woman in fact were given powers and effectively has control of all three tiers of government, all provinces and all municipalities.

The Disaster Management Act states that DURING THE FULL TERM OF ANY EMERGENCY/DISASTER, THE MINISTER OF CO-OPERATIVE GOVERNANCE CARRIES THE ULTIMATE AUTHORITY! This effectively means that during an emergency, the Minister of Cooperative Governance’s authority supercedes that of the President. This means that South Africa is being ruled by Dlamini Zuma and thus, by the Zuma faction. (I use the word “ruled” deliberately, because the Constitution is suspended and laws and regulations are being made by edict). And she rules until the end of Level one! And she determines the duration of each level; And she decides when the disaster is officially over!

Covid 19

I am not going to claim that, because the ANC is so deeply and happily in bed with China, they were part and parcel of this worldwide blight. Time will tell if any conspiracy did take place.
I am however convinced that if Covid 19 had not reared it’s head, the Zuma faction would have engineered a “Disaster”. Any excuse would have sufficed. More than likely it would have had to do with the “Land” issue, it would have involved unrest and political instability. But the tools were there for Dlamini Zuma to take over. She and her faction were waiting for this.
She is our ipso facto President.

Lockdown regulations.

So many of the regulations seem to be totally inane. Ill conceived. Not thought through. From the length of time of each level to the silly, irritating minutiae of what we may wear and eat. But knowing the way the ANC schemes, I can assure you that EVERYTHING is carefully planned, thought through, schemed and plotted. It is all very deliberate. Every move is calculated to keep the Lockdown going for as long as possible, to keep Dlamini Zuma in charge. Think back to the start of lockdown. The population largely bought into it. Acceptance. Compliance. Good Humour. Some grumbling, but nothing serious. Even the ban on alcohol and smoking didn’t cause much of an outcry at first, because no-one was sure of anything.

But now the lockdown and it’s regulations are starting to hurt badly. People are talking protest and civil disobedience. And that’s exactly what the Zuma faction want. Any reason to extend, to prolong the situation. To keep them in power. And they have the full might of the (already heavy handed) police and military at their disposal. The Bill of Rights in the Constitution provide for certain inalienable rights. Rights that may not be eroded:

*Freedom of*

Eroded – certain members of the population are not benefiting from disaster relief. And I am not only referring to white people.

*Human Dignity*
Eroded – The undignified manner in which we are being treated in general, treated as if we are stupid, appeals to reason being ignored, people being belittled and made to perform various acts at the whim of police and army. Etc.

*Freedom and Security of the Person*
Eroded – We’re in lockdown. Not at liberty.

Eroded – How much privacy do we have? They have carte blanche to monitor your communications and everything else.

*Religion, Belief and Opinion*:
Eroded – Places of worship closed; opinions, even of medical/scientific experts, challenged, belittled, vilified. Social media restrictions. Opinion contrary to government actions now indictable.

Eroded – Press censorship (social) Restrictions on and withholding of information to the media. Academic freedom now at the whim if the State.

*Assembly, Demonstration, Picket and Petition*:
Eroded – We cannot by decree, do the first three. Petitions are ignored. Unless they suit the narrative.

Eroded – You may associate with whomever you want. But just try it!

*Political Rights*:
Eroded Try some door to door canvassing! And by decree, it is illegal to campaign against the current situation.

*Movement and Residence*:
Eroded – You can only go anywhere at the whim of the government. You cannot move home. You cannot live where you wish. I have friends in England who come to SA for 3 months every year just sent me this; “There was a small piece in the Times today that stated that SA would not allow tourists until February 2021 at the earliest. Not encouraging.”Is somebody committing economic sabotage?

*Trade, Occupation and Profession*:
Eroded – Who may work, where you may work, when you may work, at the whim if the State.


Eroded – EWC says it all.

*Health Care, Food, Water and Social Security*:
Eroded – All aspects a dismal ANC delivery failure.

Eroded – Total State control over curriculum. Schools and other educational institutions will open and close at the whim of the state.

*Access to Information*:
Eroded – Sec. 32(a) states “anyone has the right to access any information held by the State”. Just try it! Even instances of Dlamini Zuma refusing to release information to the Courts.

I began this article referring to the ingrained institutional Stalinism of the ANC. This is now manifesting itself in the current unfolding of events. Everyone is ostensibly equal and free, but the “Elite” are more equal and more free. All of our freedoms suspended. Soldiers on the streets. No dissent tolerated. There are social media groups representing all the eroded Rights. The mainstream media is overflowing with complaint and protest. Serious calls for mass demonstrations and civil disobedience are being made. Beware. Be careful. It’s the excuse the Zuma faction has been waiting for, in order to crack down really hard. I am not suggesting blind subservience. We do need to stand up to this tyranny. We do need to stand together. We need the democratic international community to know about, understand and assist in our plight. But most of all, share this and similar posts as far and wide as possible. Forget the 5G, Bill Gates, New World Order narrative and focus on the real and imminent danger to our very existence. The Nkandla gang has effectively captured the State completelyLet the Zuma ANC know that we know. That we’re wise to what they’re doing.
