Meet Bimbo the parasite

By Mike Smith

9th of July 2011



1. Biology An organism that grows, feeds, and is sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of its host.


a. One who habitually takes advantage of the generosity of others without making any useful return.

b. One who lives off and flatters the rich; a sycophant.

3. A professional dinner guest, especially in ancient Greece.


Someone once said that life is an eternal struggle between parasites and hosts…

Are we parasites on planet Earth? Are others parasites on us? When one looks at the definition of a parasite above, where do we fit in? If we are NOT parasites, what are we giving back to Earth or contributing to her survival?

Darwin said that life is survival of the fittest. What does it mean to be fit? What does it mean to be intelligent? Does the fit, clever and intelligent always win? How does one explain the incredible success of parasites?

What does it help to know that energy equals mass times the square of the velocity of light when you cannot put that knowledge into practice to kill the parasites living off you and ensure your own survival?

No, unless you destroy the parasite, the parasite will ultimately destroy you.

Let me introduce you to Mrs. Bimbo…

Bimbo Ayelabola is a Nigerian female who wanted to get pregnant, so she overdosed on the fertility drug “Clomid” for two months and eventually discovered she was expecting five babies…

The medical facilities and witchdoctor huts of mud and straw in Nigeria were not kitted out to handle such a complicated issue, so she decided to fly to England and live with her sister to have her babies…free of charge at the expense of the British taxpayer.

Then when the babies were all delivered prematurely through a complicated cesarean cut and all survived (if they stayed in Africa all would probably be dead…), she applied to stay on in Britain on taxpayer expense.

Back home her Nigerian husband is a rich tycoon.

Let me tell you, that if this case was not exposed in the media, probably nothing would have been done and she would have gotten away with it…this is only a drop in the ocean to what is really going on. There are daily thousands of Mrs. Bimbos and their broods being allowed to stay in the United Kingdom while British war veterans and other pensioners try to exist on a pittance. Am I in the wrong film here or is there something really wrong with this picture?

The Nigerian whose five babies on the NHS cost us £200,000 is married to a tycoon

I flew into Britain and had quins on the we need to stay


AfriForum’s letter to the UN Special Rapporteur


8 July 2011

For the attention of The Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights Defenders

Dear Madam

Urgent request for intervention to protect the South African Public Protector
AfriForum, an independent, non-profit, South African civil rights organisation, herewith requests you to send an urgent appeal letter without delay in terms of the UN’s Declaration on Human Rights Defenders to the South African government in order to ensure that the South African Public Protector and her office will be protected against intimidation, arrest, harassment and defamation.
The details regarding this case are provided below in accordance with the guidelines provided by your office for an appeal of this nature:

1) Name of alleged victim:

The Public Protector, as institution of the South African Constitution, as well as the individual currently serving in this position as Public Protector, namely Advocate Thuli Madonsela.
The contact details of the Public Protector are:
Tel: +2712 366 7000
Fax: +2712 362 3473

2) Status of the victim as a human rights defender

The mandate of the South African Public Protector as institution, and of Advocate Madonsela as individual currently holding this position, amongst other duties includes to ensure better governance and to investigate the abuse of power and corruption. In terms of your office’s guidelines, she therefore qualifies to be regarded as a human rights defender. Your guidelines also mention that people in state employment may be considered to be human rights defenders.

3) Alleged violations committed against the victim

An informant brought it to the attention of the South African media that the South African Police Service (SAPS) is currently investigating Advocate Madonsela in connection with alleged “corruption”. The informant even mentioned that Advocate Madonsela will be arrested. Media reports covering this matter are attached to this letter. After a public outcry, the Minister of Police denied that an investigation was being conducted. This prompted the South African newspaper, The Star, to publish documents that prove that Advocate Madonsela is indeed being investigated by the SAPS. The Star’s article is attached hereto as well. These documents prove that the denials are an effort to save face, after the smear campaign against Advocate Madonsela had backfired on the SAPS.

The timing of this incident, as well as the fact that the arrest is based on false and invalid allegations dating back a long time, give rise to serious doubts and concerns. The threat of police action against Advocate Madonsela comes about at a time immediately after a provisional report of the Public Protector had leaked out, according to which it has been found that the South African Commissioner of Police, General Bheki Cele, acted unlawfully in the awarding of Police lease agreements.

The police investigation is but one aspect of an intimidation campaign being waged against the Public Protector and her office. On 3 March 2011, the South African Police Service conducted an unlawful raid on the office of the Public Protector, after it had come to light that an investigation concerning the Commissioner of Police was underway. Media reports covering this incident are also attached.

You will see in the media reports that the suspicion exists that illegal access had been gained to the computer of a senior investigative official of the Public Protector’s Office. This specific investigator plays a key role in the investigation concerning the Police’s lease agreements.

This by no means is the first time that the South African Police Service has tried to intimidate people whose legal conduct has not been to their liking. For example, in August 2010 a journalist, Mzilikazi wa Africa, was arrested only a few days after he had written an article criticising General Cele. The arrest of Mr Wa Afrika was unfounded and later all charges against him were dropped.

4) Perpetrators

The perpetrator is the South African Police Service. The investigation of Advocate Madonsela is being undertaken by the Police and they had also been responsible for the unlawful raid on and search of the Public Protector’s offices. It is curious to note that access had allegedly specifically been obtained to the computer of the investigative official responsible for the investigation into the South African Police Service.

5) Action by the authorities

The abovementioned events are public knowledge in South Africa. To date, the authorities have however taken no steps to protect the Public Protector. All charges against the Police members who had conducted the unlawful raid have been dropped, and the government merely denies the allegations that Advocate Madonsela is being investigated by the SAPS. Unfortunately General Cele has close ties with senior politicians in South Africa. The businessman to whom the Police lease agreements have allegedly been awarded, also has close ties with senior government leaders.

In the light of the abovementioned facts, AfriForum believes that your intervention is urgently required in order to get the South African government to ensure that the intimidation campaign aimed at the Public Protector is stopped and that steps should be taken against those responsible for this.

6) Link between the violation and human rights work

There can be no doubt that the South African Police Service’s targeting of the Public Protector has to do with her investigation concerning the Police and the Commissioner. The raid and the police investigation against Advocate Madonsela have come at the very time when serious findings against the Commissioner of Police are coming to light.

Police intimidates Madonsela

2011 07 08 – AfriForum asks UN Human Rights Special Rapporteur’s help after proof that Police intimidates Madonsela

AfriForum has sent an urgent request to the United Nations (UN) Special Rapporteur for Human Rights Defenders, Margaret Sekaggya, in which she is asked to demand of the South African government that the government protect the Public Protector, Adv Thuli Madonsela, against police intimidation. AfriForum’s request follows after the newspaper The Star today published documents that prove that the South African Police Service (SAPS) indeed are busy investigating Adv Madonsela.

In terms of the UN’s “Declaration on Human Rights Defenders”, the UN’s Special Rapporteur for Human Rights Defenders has the mandate to intervene internationally when “human rights defenders” are being intimidated, harassed or slandered. As the UN’s definition of “human rights defenders” also includes all who endeavour to ensure healthy government practices and combat the abuse of power and corruption, it definitely falls within the mandate of the UN Special Rapporteur to ensure that the South African Public Protector is protected against police intimidation.

In terms of her mandate, the UN Special Rapporteur is able to send an urgent letter of appeal to the South African government to request that steps should be taken to ensure the safeguarding of the Public Protector.

According to Kallie Kriel, CEO of AfriForum, his organisation decided to call for international assistance because the South African government continues denying the intimidation campaign and the police investigation, rather than to take action to ensure that the Public Protector is protected against those targeting her and her office.

Kriel added that AfriForum has inter alia informed the UN Special Rapporteur that the current police investigation against Madonsela is but one element of a much broader intimidation campaign, aimed at preventing the Public Protector from continuing to expose the unlawful awarding of lease agreements in the SAPS. The UN Special Rapporteur has also been informed by AfriForum about the unlawful raid conducted by the SAPS on the Public Protector’s offices and that suspicion exists that illegal access to the computer of a senior investigative official of the Public Protector’s office had been obtained by the SAPS. In addition the Special Rapporteur has been told that this is not the first example of the SAPS trying to intimidate people whose legal conduct is not to their liking. The journalist, Mzilikazi wa Africa, for example was arrested in 2010 within days of publishing an article criticising General Cele,” Kriel said.
