The distorted propaganda view….



Without an ANC jobs plan, Julius Malema sounds like a “clever black. ” It was former president Jacob Zuma who first coined the term “clever blacks”. He used it to refer to his enemies within the ANC, specifically urban white-collar workers from Gauteng. These so-called “clever voters “ took issue with his looting in Nkandla. By contrast, the rural poor, Zuma’s power-base, didn’t seem to mind their thieving chief’s mega-rondavel. These “clever blacks”, the former president intimated, were preoccupied with his morality, which implied by contrast that the not-so-clever working class people could stomach his contradictions, and still support the ANC.

Fortunately, the Zuma-train has now derailed and we have a “clever ” President in the highest office in the land. Only, his party seems to be making less-than-clever policy choices. With the one breath Ramaphosa promotes the protection of the business environment, investor confidence and inclusive growth, and with the next he announced the retention of Cabinet ministers; Malusi “Gupta ” Gigaba, Nomvula “Pick-up-the-Rand”  Mokonyane and Bathabile”  Sassa-debacle “ Dlamini. Ramaphosa is not consolidating his power – he is buying ANC unity, trading one ministerial position at a time. Patronage is the only ace up the President’s sleeve, as it were – pun intended.

This is the same reason why expropriation of land without compensation has now become so popular in the ANC. Expropriation is the clever brainchild of Julius Malema’s youth movement. These young South Africans are not only landless due to so-called “colonial “and “apartheid ” legacies, but often skill-less and jobless. The unemployed youth of South Africa are trapped in the chasm between a de-industrializing, digitizing private sector, and a misaligned, outdated and inefficient industrial state-owned enterprise environment, that has caused the mining and manufacturing sectors to collapse. South Africa’s unemployment is rising. The recent blip in increased jobs was largely due to growth in agriculture on the back of better rainfall. These jobs are seasonal, and will do nothing to address structural unemployment.

To respond, Ramaphosa has promised a jobs summit, and this is a welcome idea. However, he has also supported the policy of expropriation of land without compensation. Expropriation is now a policy of the ANC, and after the vote in Parliament in favor of the Economic Freedom Front’s (EFF) motion to amend the Constitution, the policy is fast becoming the keystone of South Africa’s new dawn. A new dawn of what exactly, remains to be seen.

Land for whom?

Do the majority of the 56-million South Africans own land? No. Do they want to own land? I’m not sure. Do the whites own land? Well, some do. But the majority of whites don’t own land and if they do own assets, these are financed through a retail banks at a high rate of interest. What is clear is that comparatively fewer black South Africans own land compared to their white counterparts. Very few black South Africans own any assets outright. So why has land hunger become a hot issue now? As a futurist, I’m not surprised that is has. In fact, I have for four years argued that land ownership and land reform will top the national agenda before the turn of the decade. The reason is two-fold:

  • The ANC has failed in its mission to create a developmental state and in the subsequent task, of job creation.
  • In the vacuum left by the ANC’s failure, the Economic Freedom Fighters under the leadership of Julius Malema have promoted a form of socialist nationalism with a populist land-twist.

Simply put, in the absence of a viable ANC jobs plan, Malema looks like a “clever black,”– and his ideology, looks like a lucky-packet of radical economic transformation for the young black majority. As the ANC crumbles under corruption and irrelevance, they will drift towards Malema’s lure.





1.Willl a black man’s problems be gone if the wake up one morning to find all white ppl gone?

2.Will a black man’s problems be gone if we are up to find that we have all the land to ourselves?

The ANC’s failure to come up with a viable labor-absorptive growth plan and path for the country has made Malema’s plan to “take the land” sound “clever.”  Of course Mr. Malema could not have conjured up a different plan since he himself has never worked in a factory, swept the floor in a bank or started a business. He only knows politics and the limited mythologies of Steve Biko and Chris Hani. Malema is a dyed-in-the-wool struggler who had an inordinately successful but brief stint as an ANC-tenderpreneur. Since then he has mastered reality-TV in Parliament and created a brand, the EFF, which resonates with the economically-excluded, who do not feel free in their poverty, and who are angry and willing to fight. Clever. He is selling candy to kids. But having raised kids, not everything they tend to want is good for their health.

This means that South Africa faces a fork in the road of national development. The ANC under Ramaphosa, will select the direction we take as a country. As the image below depicts, either we change rapidly through revolutionary change , or take small incremental steps to a better life for all . Either we continue state-led distribution or the business community charges ahead towards productivity growth.

If the emerging Malema-Ramaphosa waltz continues, we will see a destabilizing shift towards left-wing populism . If the ANC manages to talk left and walk right, government will merely be tinkering with the human capital – industry edges, in the form of small-scale small-impact, socialist interventionism, which cannot create sustainable jobs , then Malema is likely to be elected president in 2023. If the Ramaphosa administration can turn the new leader’s private sector friendships into real action, we may see a developmental business posture developing, and unlocking expansionary secondary industry investment and growth. Alternatively, if Ramaphosa is playing politics with Malema, by mimicking his rhetoric without abandoning his own respected economic logic, we might see the emergence of a fast-moving developmental public-private partnership and social compact to unlock a black industrialist commodity export revolution.

In the meantime, the wily citizens of South Africa, who are clever and informed, will look around for leaders who offer them a prospect of a better future. Some might even take a gamble on seemingly clever plans, that don’t address the underlying issue – a lack of productive involvement by citizens in the economy. Malema is fast becoming too dangerously clever for the rest of the normal population’s liking.  He is on a “high roll” at present and now are busy creating a fantasy world in which he think he rules the South African politics. He is getting to become a danger to himself. He has used his party’s election registration campaign to reiterate his call for the removal of Nelson Mandela Bay Mayor Athol Trollip through a motion of no confidence as a way of punishing the Democratic Alliance (DA).

Malema was addressing EFF members in Johannesburg on Sunday where he described the DA as typical “bullies who deserve punishment for voting against the expropriation of land without compensation.“He says the DA can do whatever it wants, but Trollip will no longer be mayor come 6 April when the motion is tabled. “Why not Mashaba, why not Solly? Because the mayor of the DA in PE (Port Elizabeth) is a white man, so these people when you want to hit them hard, go after a white man. They feel a terrible pain.”

Parliament’s decision to endorse the expropriation of land without compensation has been met with threats of mass protest and even campaigning to discourage international investment in South Africa. As the debate around the decision intensified on Friday, some lobby group organisations and predominantly Afrikaner farm unions called for protest action against the government’s planned land restitution policy.

If they have their way, rolling mass protests could hit Pretoria and other parts of the country as early as Tuesday next week. They also plan to encourage foreign governments and investors to stop trading with South Africa. Leading the charge is the Transvaal Agricultural Union of South Africa (TAU-SA) executive director, Bennie van Zyl, who said his union has already organised a series of meetings on Monday after its executive committee meeting to enlist more organisations to join in their protest action.

He said the expropriation of land would not solve the issue of unemployment in the country, as “90% of farms transferred to black farmers by means of restitution went out of production”. Van Zyl described Parliament’s decision as “theft” and “a fatal “economic act to take away private property”. He said a conference of all civil society and agricultural unions would be held in Pretoria on Tuesday with the aim of stopping the expropriation of land.

However, leftist Elizabeth Sidropoulos of the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) said the debate was not about the implementation of land expropriation but about setting up a committee to look into the possibility of reviewing the constitution to allow the expropriation of land. “It is not a done deal. There will be a process of consultation that will be held. “So the best thing that those opposed to the idea should do is to engage during those processes of consultation. “Their planned action is to put the cart before the horse,” Sidropoulos said. She conceded that the planned action by civil society organisations could deter first-time investors in South Africa, saying they would “adopt a wait-and-see attitude”.

The Blacks told me themselves that they received over the million rand to incite the buildings and thereafter another great amount to buy the chicks and food. There were 5 windmills on the farm – now only one broken one is left . It’s sad but it’s sure the future of our beautiful country.”

I See The Truth, You Should Too’ I have been thinking a lot about the lies that are been taught by our political leaders and I want to ask a simple question to my black brothers.Do you think,do you really really really think that the problems of black ppl in South Africa are due to a white man? Suppose we wake the next morning and find that all white ppl are gone and we have the land to ourselves,do you think all of our troubles will be gone? The reason I m asking this is because I have looked at the State Capture report and I found no white man there.I looked at who bankrupt Eskom, SAA and other entities and I only found black and Indian ppl implicated therein.

I think we are made to look at color as black ppl forgetting that ppl are ppl and they will keep stealing regardless of their colour. Whte ppl do steal like all ppl but we are made to look at white as our sole problem like the Black Americans who are taught that America is a racist country when they are only 13% of the population but had a black president???Think of it😠😠.When are we going to look at our real problems and work together as a a people to attain greatness?When are going to be sober minded,put anger and revenge aside and tackle poverty,unemployment and education as one ppl .Remember the two can not walk the walk if they don’t agree.As long as racism is not institutionalized, let go past it and build ourselves.”

On a two-week visit to farms around the country it was discovered that:
• Twenty top crop and dairy farms in the Eastern Cape, bought for R11.6-million and returned to a Kokstad community, are now informal settlements;
• A once-thriving potato farm in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands is now a makeshift soccer field;
• Ten thousand people given back 8000ha of prime fruit and macadamia farms in Limpopo are crippled by R5-million debt;
• A former multimillion-rand tea estate in Magoebaskloof in Limpopo has become an overgrown forest;
• More than five tons of a macadamia nut crop on a reclaimed Limpopo farm was so poor that it was dumped into the Levubu river; and
• A R22-million irrigation system built by the government to supply water to new farmers in KwaZulu-Natal lies unused.

The truth is that at least 90% of land reform projects have failed, and that means for many of the people involved their circumstances have not improved — and for some, have even got worse. And all this is happening in the midst of a rise in food prices.”


NOW Mr. Psycho Malema and his critters wants to turn every farm in SA into a wasteland just because of some power hungry gluttony with a possibility to become the “chief in charge” in the 2019 elections. Malema will turn SA into the same sh*thole Mugabe turned Zimbabwe into. This example is just another proof that blacks are by no means inetrested in farming- but gladly would rather spent funding allocated to farming into other lavish ventures- just like their incompetent government. Now they want to start this hair-brained scheme to just like “take away” all farmland because blacks needs land. God forbid! They can push through as many corrupt “laws” as they want to through that devious monkey circus in Cape Town – but on the ground they are going to get hell from the white farmers- and we hope Malema will be among  the spear-head of the attack- a fat target SURELY not to be missed!! But we doubt it . Malema is a low -life coward with a big mouth- hiding behind his masses of directionless extremist hooligans.

Malema continues unchallenged with his hate speech against whites as well as his co-fellow partner in the Nelson Mandela metropolis because he is white. When Penny Sparrow uttered a single “racist” undertone- he whole government , media ghouls and black masses was hunting her down. Yet here we have a black despot doing something ten times more terrible than Sparrow….and everybody prefer to “ look the other way?”


He says today about DSTV that the EFF targets Athol Trollip in PE because he is a white man. The EFF’s coalition partners in Johannesburg and Pretoria are blacks and therefore they will not be targeted (now or ever?). “If you want to hit the whites hard go after a white man” “We are cutting the throat of whiteness” “We do not care about white feelings” Everybody is well aware of how above mntioned  statements can be interpreted by his followers. If a white man had made such  allegations against blacks, he  probably would have been dragged in front of the bogus “Human Rights Court and demonized in the media skunk factory in trouble for a very long time to come. What’s good for the gander is not good for the goose. This morning one of SA’s big farmers – Dirk Steenkamp – was shot on his farm without anything being stolen.  Afriforum said there were already 90 farm attacks and 12 farm murders this year. Assassinations on whites will certainly not cease and are likely to increase with these raging statements from dangerous rabies-infected British pets like Malema.
