Zuma building himself a village

 Zuma's Village

KwaNxamalala in the Nkandla district may be the home of SA’s first citizen and the flashy cars and blue lights that accompany him when he visits, but at its core its people remain dirt poor.
Unlike President Jacob Zuma’s own homestead, which recently got a R65 million upgrade funded by taxpayers, the rural town itself, 50km away, is a sparsely populated, one-street marketplace. It consists of a supermarket, a social welfare office, a tavern and some struggling vendors.
Nkandla town’s aesthetic is so low-key, so bereft of modern city trappings, that it makes a town like Mthatha look like a First World metropolis.
The children walk long distances to school and many residents have no electricity, relying on wood fires to cook.
Although many roads in the KwaNxamalala area have been upgraded, road P50, which leads to Zuma’s homestead, is riddled with potholes.
Zuma’s own KwaNxamalala faction and touted as the first “small town” ever to be built by the SA government after 1994.
Amid accusations that KwaNxamalala is receiving preferential treatment, the project will see vast tracts of land expropriated for the construction of modern homes, a shopping mall, a college, banking facilities and other amenities.
Following the project’s launch last week, a sod-turning event is planned for next month. It will herald the development many hope will change the face of the greater Nkandla area forever.
“Why has he decided to look after Nkandla alone and not other areas? It shows favouritism. Maybe he wants to retire in his own small town one day.
“The next question is whether the president is not going to benefit personally from the project.”
It was reported in November that a company contracted by the public works department to do construction work on Zuma’s homestead, Bonelena Construction Enterprise and Projects, had the president’s niece on its payroll.
Additions to the homestead include three sets of underground living quarters with about 10 air-conditioned rooms, reported the Mail & Guardian. Other facilities include a clinic for Zuma and his family, a gymnasium, 20 houses for security guards, underground parking, a helicopter pad, playgrounds and a visitors’ centre.
Bhekumuzi Zuma, the leader of the Nxamalala clan in Nkandla, laughed off the notion that Nkandla was receiving preferential treatment.
The chief, who drives a gleaming green Audi A4 and is a blood relative of Zuma, said, “Msholozi is everywhere, he goes to every province. The Masakhane project that he introduced goes everywhere in the country. At the same time, it also does not mean that just because we are from Nkandla, we should not see development… There are no jobs, scores of people are just sitting idle.”
Nkandla is derived from the verb “khandla”, meaning to tire or exhaust. According to the local council’s website, it came about after Zulu king Shaka went to resolve a dispute in the area and when he arrived he claimed he was exhausted.
Phumelele Mhlongo, who sells an assortment of pinafores and women’s underwear in the town, says life is tough.
A mother of three adults aged between 20 and 26, none of whom have found work, she says lost her husband to an illness four years ago.
“Things are bad. You sometimes sit here the whole day without anyone buying. But we still have to support our children,” said Mhlongo.
“Sometimes, we end up going to loan sharks just so we can raise money to buy something to sell.
“We would like the government to train us and build stalls, sponsor us with some money so we can sell properly.”

Whites Burning The SA Flag in Protest

Whites burning the SA flag in protest against ongoing black on white murders

By Mike Smith
1st of June 2012

Following the murder of five month old baby Wiehan Botes and his day care mother Magrietha de Goede (66) about 150 whites of Delmas staged a protest at the court where the two murderers Enock Mbele, 44, and Lazarus Mabena, 54, appeared. The Whites burned the New South African flag and trampled on it.

I want to express my utter shock with the behavior of the whites in this case.

First of all there should have been 150,000 thousand whites at that protest. Secondly they should first have puked, spat, urinated and defecated on the flag before burning it. Thirdly they should have used the flag as kindling to necklace the murdering scum!

Nevertheless, well done to the 150 people who did pitch up.

The New South African flag of the ANC that resembles the shit stained panties of Winnie Mandela is a symbol of rape, torture and murder of whites in South Africa. It is an abominable symbol of white genocide, social decay, and theft of taxpayer’s money, by a criminal and corrupt ANC terrorist regime.

It is a symbol of infrastructure collapse, education and health system collapse, millions of AIDS deaths, nepotism and racial discrimination against South African citizens in the form of Affirmative Action, Black Economic Empowerment, racial quotas in sport and university entry, etc, etc.

That flag is a symbol of everything that is wrong with the New South Africa and anyone who honours it condones the genocide, crime and corruption in South Africa.
Delmas Murders: Rightwing burns SA flag
Delmas murders: SA flag burnt, trampled

What irked me the most is the Liberal twats in the DA who condemned the Rightwingers…not the murders or the murderers of a five month old baby and an elderly lady…No, the “racist slogans and posters” were condemned.

Hey? What is wrong with these liberal wanker’s priorities?

Anthony Benadie of the DA said: "According to the DAs current information, no report has yet provided any evidence to suggest that the attack and murder was racially motivated.”

HAHAHA…If this was a black woman and a black child killed by two white men, it would be all over the world’s media as a RACIST attack and the DA would be the first to condemn it as such.

But let the colours of the victims just be the other way around then it is not racially motivated. And then he comes with the standard liberal mantra…”He said crime and murder affects all race groups in the country.”

Bollocks man! Crime in SA is Black on White or Black on Black. What is the common denominator here?

He carried on…"By turning this double murder into a race-related issue, the VVK is in fact not only driving a wedge between race groups, but also attempting to undermine the efforts of all South Africans who are dedicated to fighting crime,” said Benadie.

Listen pal, let me tell you what is driving a wedge between races in SA is the Blacks who murder, rape and torture Whites. When the whites get upset, you want to call them “racist”? You do not see the racism in blacks killing whites, but you see the racism in whites holding up slogans condemning the genocide against them in a peaceful protest. You turn the murderers into victims and the victims into criminals. What is it you want? Do you want whites to keep quiet and behave when their families are being raped and murdered?

And the whites of SA must start getting their arses into gear now and start pitching up at these demonstrations, because the world looks at this and thinks, “150 demonstrators only…cannot be that bad then”

If White South Africans do not care about their own people getting killed, why should the rest of the world?

But I will tell you what the Whites do care about…

Saturday the stadium will be packed again with 60,000 “Bread and circus” White South Africans.
