BULALA A TRUE STORY OF SOUTH AFRICA
BULALA Tagati!* A True Story of South Africa by Cuan Elgin “This book is in stark contrast to those that have gone before it. For the first time South Africa’s history is depicted as it really was—shorn of politically correct evaluations and comment. With real people, incidents and events it tells the real and brutal story of the taming of a harsh, yet beautiful land. The blood and the battles, the dust and the sounds and smells all paint a most vivid picture. Anyone who reads this book cannot fail to understand more of the real dynamics of Africa: its cruelty, harshness, and unforgiving nature is stripped bare in Bulala . . . Read it and think again.” — David Taylor, New Zealand [* "BULALA abaTagati" means in Zulu, "Kill the Wizards!" These were the words Zulu king Dingane used in 1838, when ordering his bodyguards to execute the Boer emmissaries, shortly after their mutual signing of a land treaty.]
“If you haven’t yet read this book, then you are missing out on an epic of not only great sensitivity, but also of accounts of many betrayals so ghastly as to set your teeth on edge!
This should be read by not only ALL South Africans of ALL colour, but also by people of other Nations who are not aware of our history. Cuan Elgin has a gift of attention to detail which is quite remarkable in a man so young and his ability to feel the heart of a woman is truly remarkable.
His great faith in God is very evident as he embroiders this narrative richly with not only his own faith, but also that of the forefathers of this Nation who dared to trust their God even in the face of such desperate circumstances.
If only one of his intentions in writing this history of our Nation, is to remind us of the kind of mettle and courage and bravery of the men and women who opened up our land with their own blood and tears, then he has succeeded!” – An endorsement by Lolah Peel
392 pages (including 3 maps), paperback.
The gripping tale of the beginnings of a small, brave, Christian nation born of both extremes of the emotional spectrum: conflict, turmoil, and tragedy as well as love, dedication, and adventure—this exciting historical account of the history of South Africa (from earliest times to the end of the 2nd Anglo-Boer War at the dawn of the 20th Century) is woven as a rich tapestry into the form of a novel. Author of Bulala – Cuan Elgin
Dutch, English, French Huguenot, German, Indian, Irish, Khoi, Malay, Portuguese, Scots, Xhosa, Zulu, and other peoples struggle with and against each other in this factual account, which depicts the events as they happened, as well as the beliefs in the hearts and the thoughts in the minds of those people during those times—yet while this moving saga reveals how and why things were done as they were, it does so without condemning or condoning behaviour. The reader is free to draw their own conclusions and do their own moralizing.
Deeply researched, the Scottish-Irish-descended South African-born author travelled over 15,500 miles [25,000 km.] across South Africa to every historical site mentioned in the narrative, in his first-hand investigative research. You will learn, laugh, and cry—but more importantly, understand the actual events which transpired in this controversial, southern-most African nation, without the bias of the media or the pressured slant of special-interest groups.
Apart from being so highly entertaining that you will find it hard to put this book down, the historically accurate presentation will allow the non-South African reader to understand South Africa as well as it can possibly be understood by an outsider. Further, modern nations may possibly learn some lessons and avoid similar pitfalls which may threaten their domestic tranquility.
Read “Bulala” and think again!
In my opinion “Bulala” is probably the most important, most authoritative and best researched book on the history of South Africa ever written. Anyone truly interested in the true history of South Africa and those invincible Boers must read this book. Bulala is the bible of South African history. – Toxinews
I fully endorse this book and its writer Cuan Elgin, for that matter I urge to buy this book and read it, when you have done reading it give it to your children to read so that they can have a better understanding of their history! Read this book and then read it again! Then see with new eyes! Shane – Shane’s Blog
WHERE DID THE BOOK TITLE ‘BULALA’ (Zulu for “kill/destroy”) ORIGINATE?
As I say in the Preface to BULALA, it occurred to me that if I first published a book exposing the creeping genocide of our people, most of ‘The World’ would not give a damn: “Just getting what they deserve… because of Apartheid.”
So the rationale for publishing a story of our history first, and then the modern-day story as a sequel, thus came about, to show the continuity of our righteous struggle to survive.
The first “Bulala” in the story is of course Zulu king Dingane’s traitorous order to murder the Boer emmissaries in 1838; the 2nd is British Capt Alfred “Bulala” Taylor & his murders of unarmed Boers during the 2nd Anglo-Boer War, and the 3rd “Bulala” is what convicted terrorist Nelson Mandela & his communist henchmen sing in “Bulala amaBuhnu/Kill the Boers” to this very day.
An extract from BULALA: The ANC’s (African National Congress) communist-trained “militant wing” of this “black liberation struggle,” was a group called Mkhonto weSizwe (MK), meaning, the “Spear of the Nation.”
This “liberationist” organization would torture and execute hundreds of blacks within their own camps, in the “frontline states” (Angola, Botswana, Mozambique, Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe) who were suspected as “traitors.” This declared terrorist group, based to the north of the white republic, planted land-mines on South African farm roads, and detonated limpet-mines and car bombs in towns, indiscriminately killing and maiming innocent civilians (both black and white). Yet they never actually confronted the white army in South Africa in battle.
In the “frontline state” of Angola, most of the real fighting against the whites was done for the black “liberation forces” by 50,000 Cuban troops, outfitted with Russian tanks and Mig fighter-aircraft, which culminated in a stalemate, at the hard-fought Battle of Cuito Cuanivale, in October of 1987.
The San-Bushmen of Namibia, the original inhabitants of that desert land (many of whom had acted as trackers for the South African Army), were dispossessed of their allotted homeland there by the incoming black government, as a “punishment” for that allegiance. Notably, many moderate black Namibian troops also fought alongside the white troops, against the Marxist-led and Cuban-backed infiltrators from Angola, the Owambo, who now have a majority in the new Namibian government.
The strongly Calvanistic, Christian white African nation endured; preferring to live as an independent ethnic minority under virtual siege—declared an enemy of the world—than to capitulate to a communist-backed, black majority rule and turn their backs on their God and their very heritage. The Apartheid era itself would last a mere 40 years: one generation —considerably less than the 70 years that the people of Eastern Europe suffered under the heel of communism.
Yet, the white Afrikaners reasoned, Apartheid was not some foreign institution imposed upon some other nation, as was the case with communism; it was essentially the “House Rules” a sovereign people established to maintain law and order in their own nation.
The primary reason Apartheid was instituted was the absolute refusal of the whites to have blacks living permanently within their towns and suburbs. Seeing how the blacks lived in their own villages—and obeying God’s command to “be separate,” the Afrikaners legislated Apartheid to preserve the integrity and safety of their own nation and people.
Further, the Afrikaners, being a Christian people, would not allow dark-arts practicing nonbelievers to live among them; since centuries of missionary efforts, they argued, had produced no real moral advancement or notable spiritual change in the majority of the black peoples of South Africa.
Yet the albatross of infamy engendered by “the legacy of Apartheid” would forever be dredged up by the incoming ANC to stigmatize and discriminate against all whites—and to then justify the passing of legislation to dispossess skilled white South Africans of their jobs, and white farmers of their land, even 2 decades after the whites themselves had abolished the policy of Apartheid. Hypocritically, the blacks now began to impose similar discriminatory legislation against the ethnic-minority whites; but now that “the tables had been turned,” such racial discrimination was considered to be a good thing!
FOR THOSE WHO WONDER IF I WROTE ‘BULALA’ TO “MAKE MONEY”
I have only recovered a fraction of the cost (in time=money & cash) that I invested in BULALA, but as the ‘Preface to the Reader’ explains, I wrote it to let the world know who & what we are, where we came from, what we sacrificed to build South Africa, and how we now find ourselves in this situation; strangers in our own land.
BULALA is actually a ‘prequel’ as I originally started writing a modern-day political novel exposing the thousands of brutal farm-murders since the communist takeover (a book still only 2/3 done… things are developing so fast now!) but then I realized that ‘the world’ would simply say, “but you’re just getting what you deserve… because of apartheid”, so I shelved that story, until I could first tell of our origins.
I struggled to get BULALA onto bookshelves alongside the scores of books that tell only one side of the story of South Africa, but I kept trying. I couldn’t find a South African publisher brave enough to take it on, so had to go via the USA first, and then print locally. Reader feedback has been 99% positive, I am pleased to say.
Incidentally, I attended a book fair in Cape Town about 2 years ago, and saw a publisher’s fancy stall selling boxed sets of “Heroes of the Struggle”. I asked them if these included the Boer generals; heroes of the struggle against British imperialism.
They thought I was nuts…
Johann Hamman [renowned Battle Fields Guide] says: Writing a book for public consumption in this country is like starting a coffee shop in Ethiopia. It will be an epic struggle to reach the publishing deadline, a nonstop argument with idiot editors and book selectors, and an obscene amount of money to get the first edition anywhere near readiness and countless arguments with morons who want to tell you what you should have written. I have read Bulala. Cuan Elgin gave me a copy and graciously inscribed it to me as a Son of Africa. It does not matter what you write in any book. If it does not meet mainstream ideas… you will not get past it. Bulala is a cracking read and a historical novel. It is not an academic work. Go read it……our story is a spellbinding tale that will bend hearts, no matter how you clothe it….Take a bow, Mr. Elgin.
IT’S THE SAME OLD CRY, “AFRICA FOR AFRICANS!”
“AFRICA FOR AFRICANS!”
Yet, somehow it seems that “Europe is for anyone!” and thus anyone can move there and live off the generosity of European taxpayers.
Has it occurred to black Africans (those who claim one has to be “black” ie. negroid, to be an African), that the North Africans (who have an unbroken 5 000-year written history there) are largely of Arabic origin?
Extract from BULALA: The Afrikaner-Boers have of course, every right to now call themselves an African “tribe”—and to demand recognition as such. The Zulus, Xhosas or Sothos can not claim to be any older as a distinct tribe in the region than could the Afrikaners. The Zulu tribe itself was only an insignificant clan until Shaka made them an (assimilated) nation in the 1820′s, and the Xhosas (an earlier offshoot) are not much older: both “originated” out of the forced consolidation of many branches of Nguni-speaking Bantu. The Boers too, though a “tribe” formed from many different European “tribes,” are by now as “African” as any black tribesmen—and are, like the Bantu, descended from many a common ancestor (the very definition of a “tribe”), hence their many common surnames.
They have also been settled, at least in the huge area loosely called “The Cape,” for over 360 years; more than a century longer than any Bantu tribe. The TRANSVAAL and the ORANGE FREE STATE had been “cleared” for their occupation by Mzilikaze’s genocides, until the Matabele and Mzilikaze himself were, in turn, “cleared” from the area by the Boers. The Afrikaner-Boers then developed what was essentially a barren wasteland, into a veritable Utopia; by their blood, sweat and tears.
