The Facebook reaction to this post is for some to ridiculously call me racist instead of entering reasonable discussion that’s on topic and towards a better South Africa for all. I hope that some will think before jumping, gaining perspective of my position by first viewing some of my previous thoughts on racists and racism.
VIDEO OF THE MONTH: Back in 1990, a handful of us students and a teacher met Terror Lekota in a secret meeting just after he got out of Robben Island. He was impressive. This speech of his in Parliament reminds me of the intelligent passion he showed us that day. Here he defends the Constitution whilst reprimanding Jacob Zuma and Julius Malema, reminding us of the Rwanda genocide and stating strongly that he cannot support the promotion of South Africans killing South Africans.
I can’t force the public to read what i most want them to read so i’m going to have to settle for this list. Of the 280 Knysna Keep posts i made in 2016 (more elsewhere), these are the 33 i most want you to read. I hope that you explore these articles (and their associated links), understanding that’s what’s happening in little Knysna is relevant to South Africa, especially regards the ongoing, frightening corruption of the Democratic Alliance (DA).

I express disgust for racist Mark Llloyd but also post this in the interest of public safety: Marc Lloyd posted: “Not a bad ‘ol day at the shooting range…note the grouping! Used.22 rifle and 9mm Luger – getting my practice shots in before “students” start throwing petrol bombs in SA!” De Wet Britz (new comment): Don’t need grouping for Malema, in fact you don’t need a gun, just walk up to the thug and smack his rotten dead mother out of him. Marc Lloyd (response): “Biggest I’ve shot is an R4 rifle….bullseye everytime! Should have been a sniper. As for … ‘Click here to read full article…’
“We’re happy to announce that there’s no deal between the ANC and the EFF,” stated Julius Malema, the Economic Freedom Fighter’s leader. He said in a news conference that, “We told the ANC that we’re more than prepared to work with them… but we asked the ANC to meet the following conditions.” OUTRAGEOUS CONDITIONS FOR COALITION The conditions included changing the constitution so as to appropriate land, abolishing E-tolls, stopping the nuclear deal with Russia, the nationalisation of mines, free education, removing Jacob Zuma as President, investigating the Guptas and removing Die Stem from the national anthem. Interestingly, Malema claims … ‘Click here to read full article…’
Julius Malema, leader of the EFF, has told Al Jazeera that he is not afraid to fight if the constitution fails. He claims that the ANC needs to be addressed first as it is the obstacle to removing white capital. This is a must watch interview!

Julius Malema (EFF) is certainly getting his act together. Many of us may question the man but it’s difficult to deny the truth in what he is saying. Those questions culminate in, “Will we take charge and change what isn’t working or will we wait for the revolution of the poor?” I expect the EFF to make more gains over the next municipal and national election.

Andrew Donaldson has written a poignantly funny article about Malema (EFF) and Maimane’s (DA) introduction to parliament. Here’s a taster: Radebe was followed by the leader of the opposition, the DA’s Mmusi Maimane, who was also making his debut address to parliament. It was a polished performance and provided the afternoon’s first real entertainment with a dig at both the government and the Effniks. “We agree with the president that South Africa requires a radical transformation,” Maimane said. “By this we mean bold policy ideas that grow the economy and create jobs. You see, ‘radical’ plans are not in and … ‘Click here to read full article…’
There are few exceptions to the accepted rule that politicians around the world are highly skilled individuals – at feathering their own nests. A significant chunk of the South African Democratic Alliance’s election strategy this time around was to point up the more blatant examples of African National Congress corruption, such as the Nkandla scandal, and hope that this would be enough to persuade blacks in particular, to switch their votes to the DA. Some hope. The tactic backfired badly. In the year or so leading up to the election, there had been much other than large scale corruption to … ‘Click here to read full article…’
“Simply put – EFF managed to swim with the sharks without being eaten alive. How they made it is a story that is subject to academic political studies. They succeeded against all odds because they remained on message and remained consistent with it throughout the campaigning process. They reduced themselves to one key aspect: determined, street-level fighters for the poor and unemployed.” – Chris Kanyane This is Part 2. Read Part 1 here. Despite 16.1 million people (30% of the population), mostly black, receiving social grants, Julius Malema, leader of the EFF, encouraged black people to reproduce so that black ideas … ‘Click here to read full article…’
