We as  the normal public - are now getting used to the ANC's own "CDPP " program to loop through the correctional services hole- "Cader Deployment and Protection Program" - it is been called. (Not for the normal public) One cadre gets caught for corruption- just to be deployed in another more lucrative seat in the gravy train- and when sent to jail- the second phase- the "protection program"  kicks in. The cadre plays possum for two months in one or the other asylum-(Shabir Shaik & Jackie Selebi style)- gets declared "terminally ill" by the "Correctional Services Cadre Corps"  to substantiate the oncoming con-trick according to law - and to pull a sock over the eyes of the public- and get sent on a very lucrative parole paid holiday for his/her rest of his/her life This all are naturally paid by the scarcely 13 million taxpayers.

This following part- in the local tabloids- are actually hillarious- if it was not so serious:

 "Alhoewel oud-polisiekommissaris Jackie Selebi Vrydag op mediese parool vrygelaat word, sal hy na verwagting in die hospitaal bly.. "Selebi ly aan terminale nierversaking en sal waarskynlik nie die Steve Biko-hospitaal, waar hy aangehou word, kan verlaat nie-"- Beeld 20/07/2012 (http://www.beeld.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Selebi-vrygelaat-20120720)

-and the next week:

"Johannesburg – 'n Familielid van Jackie Selebi het bevestig dat die voormalige polisiehoof uit die Steve Biko- akademiese hospitaal in Pretoria ontslaan is, het RSG berig. Selebi is glo sedert Saterdag tuis."
- Beeld 22/07/2012 http://afrikaans.news24.com/Suid-Afrika/Nuus/Selebi-weer-tuis-20120722 )


Ever heard of ANC cadres sent to jail for a lengthy prison sentence? Mean time- Clive Derby Lewis have cancer- but the rat pack ANC cadre core refuse him parole time after time. Talk about communist racism and nepotism! Eerie have these ANC dictators the audacity to incarcerate other people left right and center for far less serious offenses.Our media are full to the hilt of these ANC criminals- caught for fraud, money laundering, theft- and naturally- cadre deployment. We all would love to know what happens to all these criminals when eventually caught? All we read- is that this or that "investigation" will be launched (at our tax payer's cost that is)- then all goes to a dead end.

Criminals like Pnuel Maduna, Thabo Mbeki, Jacob Zuma and many more in the current "parliament" , provinces and city councils are still running scot-free in public- but through the blatant  scrupulous interfering of the bench by Lethuli-Cadre Revolutionary Complex- they will never see the inside of a jail cell. How many millions did this particular criminal Selebi cost us as taxpayer in all his court-cases....and where did it lead.....to yet another Shabir Shaik stunt...to nothing. All our taxes being wasted.These Mob-imbeciles are making the law a mockery.

There is two laws in the Banana republic...a Cadre law ( All ANC gravy riders , brothers and sisters - are exempted from prosecution)- and a Common law( Any member of the rubble public  will be jailed - the time will be determined according to what skin-color and what political party you don) This...dear reader...is Socialism......a small selected clique running the show and raking in the millions- unopposed and untouched by the law and security forces they themselves dictate and control..This all to keep the public- ( useful idiots)- "in check" - and preying eyes away from all their dubious mob-scams.

So..if you are not pro-ANC- or belong to the Lethuli escarole- watch out..BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU!

BRICS- The new -(old)- plan for the Antichrist to divide the world into manageable "blocks"- or sectors.This devious plan was on the cards long-long ago...during the Roman empire already. It is shocking to see that old habits never die- for Satan will always try to complete his demonic plans. It did not work with the Roman Empire- so he tried again during the first world war- and again during the second world war. Now he is trying again.The world will not - obviously- be conquered by the barrel of the gun- but through devious evil politicians. South-Africa was the last hope for a free country in Africa- but through the usurper de Klerk and his puppet master- Pik Botha- the white nation was led astray. The Sister hoar churches taught them whites so regularly to pray: "-and lead us not into temptation- but deliver us from evil.." Yea...then the total opposite happened though: The National Party led the whites in this country into the sport temptation- and the ANC now is delivering them unto the evil of the New World Order.The whites made their gravest mistake in 1989- when voting "yes" for the demonic NP brotherhood...and this country now will pay the price.NOW the Antichrist is preparing South-Africa for the preliminary phase of destruction. Eerie- this all is so neatly portrayed in the film "Megiddo." Have you ever seen it? If not- do yourself a favor and rent it. It is a precise factual movie of the days we now are engaged into. In the movie- we are shown step-by-step how the Antichrist will operate. If you have not seen it- go and get it. This is how the cover look-like:

In the movie- the Antichrist divide the world in 8 manageable "blocks"- as seen in this extraction from the movie:

- and here is the New World Order's division of the world in reality- of which BRICS are forming part of::

-and here is how it will be "controlled":


Now-like we said..this is nothing new- here is a map from 1941 that already shows a New World Order planning for the world:

- and an earlier map of from "The Club of Rome":

So you see- BRICS is just yet another "newer" version of the old world domination Jewish NWO demon masters.

White South-Africans...what have you done in 1989? What happened with your religious ways- your commitment and patriotism to our ancestors? Why did you went astray? What have you done?You have brought forth  the curse of YAHWE onto this sinful white nation for turning your backs on Him- listening to the NP lies and choosing the Babylonian sport gods instead!Now you will pay the terrible price- you and your descendants- up into the fourth generation of these that turned against Him...for that is what Yahweh promised the Israelites- and these after them:

(Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.

Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.-Psalm 1v 1-6)


It is a sad horrible story indeed- the reality that we allow firstly- a fully fledged and dangerous communist “Liberation”  sect  to take control of our land and of our lives as Christians. Secondly- we just sit back and allow this same communist regime to vindicate our race through murders, halt our food supplies through farm invasions and farm attacks, kill our farmers,  eradicate the  history of our ancestors piece by piece through name changes and introduction of liberal socialist propaganda into our schools- and rape our white moral values with their corruption, nepotism and African dictatorial laws and threats. The whites of South-Africa – like the whites in America and around the globe- sadly- are too busy playing “survival” capitalist games on passive mode- to realize what really is happening around them- blissfully asleep and ignorant of the fact that they are currently- living out their last few years of freedom as a white race and nation. This is their downfall- their own ignorance of obvious facts, lack of knowledge about their circumstances , failure to consolidate…and selfish arrogance to think themselves “untouchable”. Where have things so horribly gone wrong for the white man in South-Africa? The answer: THE DAY IN 1989 WHEN WE LISTENED TO THE NP MASONIC BROTHERHOOD AND CHOSE RUGBY TO REPLACE YAHWEH.Oh…why did the white nation not take heed of the following warning YAHWEH gave to the Israelites: ” And a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the LORD your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.- Deut 11: 28)- then maybe the liberals in Natal and Western Cape- as well as the rugby slaves in the rest of the country would’ve been able to take a more sober decision when the De Klerk NWO gangster team threw the “Yes” or “No”  gauntlet during the 1989 referendum. How do they say: ” Every nation gets the King they deserve…” None of the sinful generation of Israelites of the generation that chose the golden calf survived the desert- and so shall none of the sinful generation of Israelites of this nation  that chose the rugby calf in 1989 shall survive this desert- but will all perish for turning their backs on YAHWEH.

As this 16 years of ANC  hi-jacked “rule” progressed- so did they- communist style- systematically broke down all the disciplinary systems and code of conduct that kept South-Africa standing firm as a country and a proud nation against the Jewish NWO onslaughts of sanctions, war and media ridicule for almost 40 years. Now their evil game is in the process of moving in it’s second transformation level- the level that will bring total socialism into our homes. ..the level that Jacob Zuma so gleefully (naturally being paid to)- introduced as “The Second Transformation.”   Zuma himself – as a paid Zionist puppet in  “The Plan” – signed South-Africa- the last white bastion in Africa with Christian values-away into this demonic corporation….BRICs Inc.
South Africa was introduced by the Zionist masters to a 6 point plan:
1. Mandela- The key-  to open the gates of hell. ( The NWO introduced the ANC communists to South-Africa through him)
2. Mbeki- The Erradicator- (He was tasked to eradicate all white Western Social behavior and opposition- disarming all possible threats to ‘The Plan”)
3. Zuma- The Imposter- ( He was put in place to pose as a “democratic” leader in order to introduce firstly “soft” communism and socialism on all walks of life- by first demolishing all western-style nationalism, independent infrastructures, faith, economy and private structures- replacing it systematically by state take-overs of all private assets, importation of illegal aliens to destroy the current social and welfare structures, impoverishment of the local populace in order to submit the population to state grants and dependency. This move is to “blackmail” black voters into submission to vote for the current regime – or starve. When the whole of the country is in sincere debt and most of the populace hungry- the “state” will act as “redeemer” and take control of all resources and livelihoods- thus everything will belong to the “state”- controlled by the SACP This will then already transformed SA from “soft communism” into a fully socialist and fascist police state)
4. The next black dictator after Zuma will be The Enforcer- (To enforce communism and socialism through tyranny and prosecution- Introduction of a active  Police State)
5. The following dictator will be The Controller ( It will be his task to control the population and resources in the communist and socialist system through law enforcement and security forces- Fully functional Police state)
6. The introduction of the Antichrist- who will control the world and South-Africa through a global Socialist system.

BRICKS is that level- the level in which the communist manifesto is to be implemented into each and every home across the globe- the level that will submit all nations under the heel of one supreme evil rule- the level that will once and for all- take away the liberty of being a free nation, free citizens, free speech- and freedom of movement. BRICS is the level that will control each and every nation from the communist Zionist controlled United Nations- the main seat that ultimately will hand power over to the Zionist Antichrist – who will control the whole world through the Black Pope- overseen by the Elders of Zion- regulated by the Illuminati- using their disciplinary tool in the United Nations and controlled enforcement through the BRICS   system.
(And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.- Rev 13:1 and 2) This is what the white race across the globe now see  enfolding right in front of their eyes- yet choose to be blind communist slaves – being led to the horrible abattoirs of hell. Wake up children of the Almighty- wake up or be damned. The blade of the Grim reaper’s axe is already against your roots. This all was planned right from the beginning in SA- right at the CODESA wormhole – by the Masonic Oppenheimer paid National Party and the De Klerk/Botha brotherhood…ruthless paid agents with no conscious …puppets of the Zionist Antichrist. (Please see the movie “Megiddo”- to fully realize the far-reached consequences of this evil master plan.)


The initial BRIC alliance of countries includes Brazil, Russia, India and China. The foreign ministers of these four countries first met at the initiative of Russia on 9 July 2008, during the G8 summit in Japan. South Africa officially became a member nation on 24 December 2010, after being formally invited by the BRIC countries to join the group. The group was then renamed BRICS – with the “S” standing for South Africa.
- Sources:
The main aspirations of BRICS is to reform the global financial system and to become a diplomatic counterweight to the West (or so they say), objectives that presently appear quite achievable considering that investment inflow into BRICS countries has been growing by leaps and bounds since 2010, and amounted to an estimated $193bn in 2011, a figure which is expected to double this year. These facts were confirmed by the UN World Investment Report 2012, released last week. (Source)
Prior to South Africa’s admission, and in the aftermath of the group’s first formal summit in Yekaterinburg, Russia, on 16 June 2009, the group announced a need for a new global reserve currency. The announcement instantly sparked a fall in the value of the dollar against other major currencies. This fact on its own is already an obvious indicator that BRICS poses a threat to western nations and particularly the United States.
In March 2012, during an interview with international TV channel CNN, South Africa’s Trade an Industry Minister, Rob Davies, said that the BRICS countries were questioning whether the governance of global finance institutions, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund were still relevant today. He also announced that trade between South Africa and other BRICS countries had grown immensely by 29 percent. He further performed his ‘communist duty’ quite diligently by attempting to appease negative U.S. sentiments by explaining why the proposal of the BRICS nations to move away from the dollar as a trading currency was not intended to be a slap in the face of the U.S. – (Source) — And yes, for those who don’t know this – Rob Davies is a member of the South African Communist Party (SACP).
It has been argued that BRICS have little in common besides strong post-Cold War growth and large populations, and that their merger is for economic rather than political reasons. There is even strong sentiments of praise for the BRICS group of nations and their willingness to work together despite their different political systems, which is of course a complete and utter load of bollocks! Has the world completely forgotten about communism?
Has anybody considered the possibility that the driving force behind this group is none other than the old adversary called, Communism, and that these vipers are wearing a different veil — all singing the same chorus but with a slightly modified tune?
Blade Nzimande, big chief of the South African Communist Party (SACP), and Minister for Higher Education and Training (God help our children) had the following to say about South Africa’s inclusion into the BRICS group:
“This is indeed a very significant development, which the SACP should welcome as a potentially progressive platform through which we can advance the key economic growth and developmental objectives of the national democratic revolution.”
- (Blade Nzimande as published on the Communist University website)
The mere fact that South Africa’s Communist University has made use of Google Groups, a FREE service initially developed and funded in the U.S., to host blabbermouth Nzimande’s drivel is but yet another sign of their hypocritical outlook on life.
Whether it be democratic revolution, economic revolution, or whatever – REVOLUTION is the only thing these bastards ever think and talk about… Have they ever ONCE stopped for a moment to contemplate the barbarity of their crazy philosophy, and the number of unnecessary deaths and human suffering it has caused over the ages?
Here’s a quick reminder:
USSR: 20 million deaths; China: 65 million deaths; Vietnam: 1 million deaths; North Korea: 2 million deaths; Cambodia: 2 million deaths; Eastern Europe: 1 million deaths; Latin America: 150,000 deaths; Africa: 1.7 million deaths; Afghanistan: 1.5 million deaths; the international Communist movement and Communist parties not in power: about 10,000 deaths.
- Courtois, Stéphane. (1999). “Introduction: the crimes of communism” in The Black Book of Communism. pp. 1–32.

So what connection does BRICS have with communism?
Russia, China, and South Africa’s connections with Communism is clearly obvious, but Brazil and India’s are not… This posting will thus point out a few unapparent facts concerning the last named two countries — as briefly as possible, while at the same time providing links to external sources, which readers can explore at their own leisure. Brazil’s connection is relatively easy to present to readers, but India’s is somewhat complex and hazy, with roots dangling in the teachings and practices of the devil himself… Stay tuned, and you’ll see why!
While the history of communism in Brazil is neatly summarized in a few words in an online article titled, Communism in Brazil, it creates the erroneous impression that the current ‘democratic’ Brazilian political landscape was never seriously infected by this shady philosophy…. until you read the final paragraph:
“As the Communists moderated their positions, the Vargas regime gave amnesty to many of the Communist prisoners who were still being held. The Communist revolution had ended, however, for the time being. The Communists decided to take part in the democracy of Brazil, because they were now allowed to do so. One day, when the proletariat became more developed, they would start the Communist revolution.” – Sound familiar?
Dilma Rousseff is the current and first female elected President of Brazil. She was inaugurated on the 1st of January 2011. (See: Ex-guerrilla to be Brazil’s first female president). It is widely accepted among political analysts that she was handpicked by the former Brazilian President Luis Jose Inazio Lula Da Silva, or “Lula” – a committed Marxist revolutionary. – (Source)
“Lula” anoints Dilma Rousseff under the banner of the Communist Party of Brazil.
Picture Source: Romanticpoet’s Weblog
Rousseff’s father, Pedro Rousseff (born Petar Rusev), was a Bulgarian lawyer and an active member of the Bulgarian Communist Party in the 1920s. He fled political persecution in Bulgaria in 1929, settling in France. He arrived in Brazil in the 1930s but soon moved to Buenos Aires – returning to Brazil several years later, settling in São Paulo, where he succeeded in business.
Dilma Rousseff followed in her father’s footsteps and became a socialist during her youth. Following the 1964 coup d’état she joined various left-wing and Marxist urban guerrilla groups that fought against military rule. She participated in the militant activities of the Comando de Libertação Nacional—COLINA (English: National Liberation Command) and advocated Marxist politics among labour union members. She was captured and jailed between 1970 and 1972.
Reports that Rousseff was apparently tortured while in detention is often exploited by the main stream media in exactly the same fashion Nelson Mandela’s long jail term has incessantly been hammered into people’s heads. I suppose it’s all part of the effective technique that plays on the guilt emotions of the masses, thereby encouraging people to act compassionately.

Socialism in India has a long tradition and represents a significant part of the country’s historical political heritage… However, groups involved with various forms of communism in India have over the ages fragmented into a multitude of different parties – the most radical currently being the Communist Party of India (Maoist), an underground (banned) movement, which aims to overthrow the government of India through people’s war means. – See also: ‘Maoists looking at armed overthrow of state by 2050′.
The Indian National Congress is at present India’s dominant political party. Although it is today recognised as the largest and one of the oldest democratic political parties in the world, a socialist pattern of development was set as its goal for India way back in the year 1931. A socialistic pattern of development was again presented as its goal in 1955. A year later, the Indian parliament adopted ‘socialistic pattern of development’ as official policy, a policy that came to include land reforms and regulations of industries – (Source – PDF file 300k). The word “socialist” was added to the Preamble of the Indian Constitution by the 42nd amendment act of 1976.
Other dominant political parties in India include the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Communist Party of India (Marxist).
Occultist Roots of the Indian National Congress
The Indian National Congress was founded in 1885 by several members of the complex occultist movement, known as the Theosophical Society, a society which was officially formed in New York City, United States, in November 1875, by the Illuminati operative Helena Blavatsky in collaboration with a couple of other weird characters such as: Henry Steele Olcott, a lawyer and writer, and William Quan Judge, a mystic, esotericist, and occultist. In 1878 Blavatsky and Olcott moved to India together and established the Theosophical headquarters there. Blavatsky left under a cloud of suspicion in 1885, having been accused of faking materializations of teachings from her Masters-???  Back in Europe in 1888 she published her major work The Secret Doctrine. The book “is an attempt…to reconcile science, the Ancient Wisdom, and human culture through…cosmology, history, religion, and symbolism.” – (Ellwood, Robert S. “Theosophy,” in The Encyclopedia of the Paranormal edited by Gordon Stein (Buffalo, N.Y.: Prometheus Books, 1996), pp.759-766.) According to Blavatsky herself, “The chief aim of the…Theosophical Society [was] to reconcile all religions, sects and nations under a common system of ethics, based on eternal verities.” – (Source)
The present-day New Age movement is said to be based to a considerable extent on the Theosophical tenets and ideas presented by Blavatsky and her contemporaries. “No single organization or movement has contributed so many components to the New Age Movement as the Theosophical Society. … It has been the major force in the dissemination of occult literature in the West in the twentieth century.” – (Source)
Incidentally, the theory of the Atlantean origins of the Aryan race was also developed by Blavatsky. Her ‘research’ and subsequent theories on the subject contributed to the rise of Nazism… The society’s seal incorporated the Swastika, Star of David, Ankh, Aum and Ouroboros symbols – (Click here to view the image). The significance of all this imagery would be well worth exploring, but let’s leave that for another day, shall we?
The vast amount of PRO-Theosophical material available online is truly astonishing… One cannot help but wonder whether the sheer extent of it all was purposefully designed and ‘planted’ to brainwash the masses and further the agenda of the ‘Masters of Darkness’, and whether the growing number of westerners who are delving into Theosophy and other systems of eastern esoteric philosophy (many of whom who call themselves “Christian”) have become totally blind to the fact that Blavatsky was describing God’s adversary in her writings when she said:
“Lucifer is dine and terrestrial light, the ‘Holy Ghost’ and ‘Satan,’ at one and the same time.”
– (The Secret Doctrine, Vol. II – Anthropogenesis, H.P. Blavatsky Collected Writings, 1888, The Theosophical Publishing House, 1979, p. 513.)
“[H]e [Lucifer] is the mysterious personage about whom legends are rife in the East, especially among Occultists. It is he who changes form, yet remains the same. He is the Nameless One. . .who has so many names. . .He is the Initiator.”
– (The Secret Doctrine, Vol. I, p. 232. by Helen Blavatsky)
There’s only ONE spiritual entity with many names and whose very nature is unknown, and that’s Satan himself… But – I’d prefer to leave this intense topic for the sister blog, as I’m on the verge of wandering totally off topic.
The bottom line is that the Indian National Congress, who adopted a socialist pattern of development, and who eventually became the largest and oldest democratic political party in the world, was established by a group of Satanists.
The Indian National Congress has to certain extent displayed similar colours as the African National Congress (ANC)… They are anti-Christian, pro-Muslim, pro-Islam, and show an unnatural favouritism to the Indian Muslim community, and focus only on issues of the Indian Muslim community to gain Muslim votes. They have revised history textbooks to present a Marxist bias, and whitewashed the record of Atrocities committed by Muslim Emperors and Kings on Hindus during six-hundred years of Islamic Rule over India. They are soft on Islamic extremism, Islamic fundamentalism, Islamic terrorism and Islamism. They scrapped the Prevention of Terrorist Activities Act (POTA) immediately after winning the elections in 2004. They’ve been accused of deliberately fragmenting Hindus while consolidating conservative Muslim votes. They’ve been involved in numerous corruption scandals, such as the 2G spectrum scam, for example. They’ve also been accused of covering up their scams using state resources.

Hierdie opsomming van die massamoorde in Noord-Angola, is nie vir die sagtes van gees nie. Moet dus nie sleg voel as jy dit nie kan lees nie. As jy weet dat jy sensitief is, moet jy dit nie eers begin lees nie.
Die doel van die navorsing is om iets uit die verlede te leer. Ons weet dat niks in die Afrika-revolusie spontaan gebeur nie en dat alles volgens ‘n bepaalde plan georganiseer word. Wat ons hier moet leer is die vroeë waarskuwing wat die tipe aanvalle voorafgaan.
Neem kennis van:
- Die vlak van geweld waartoe hierdie aanvallers in staat is, sodat
ons nie verras word nie.
- Die impak van die wêreldpers se stilswye.
- Die reaksie van die wêreld nadat so iets plaasgevind het.
Ons moet bepaal hoe so `n aanslag gestop kan word. Ons moet ook bepaal hoe ons die teenplan in die wêreld gaan verdedig. Wanneer julle klaar gelees het, wil ek hê dat julle `n kommentaar aan my epos by lukas@akska.co.za stuur.


Three days in Angola


Op 15 Maart 1961 is verskeie klein dorpies in die Noorde van Angola oor `n front van ongeveer 800 km gelyktydig deur bendes aangeval en veral die Portugese inwoners is op grusame en sadistiese maniere uitgewis. Die aanvalle is op die daaropvolgende twee dae voortgesit. Plekke wat deurgeloop het was daardie jare bekend as Luvo, São
Salvador, Madimba, Mavoio, Maquela do Zombo, M’Bridge, Songo, Carmona, Negege, Quitexe, Nova Caipemba en die Fazenda (plantasie) by die Lué rivier. Teixeira, wie se neef tydens hierdie aanvalle vermoor is, het die gebiede `n jaar na die aanvalle besoek en onderhoude gevoer met oorlewendes, ooggetuies, en soldate ten einde die gebeure te herkonstrueer. Foto’s wat deur soldate afgeneem is, was in die boekklub uitgawe ingesluit, maar is vanweë die grusame aard daarvan weggelaat in die ander uitgawes. Honderde foto’s is egter ingedien by `n spesiale kommissie van die Verenigde Nasies (VN) en was ook beskikbaar vir besigtiging by die destydse
Suid- Afrikaanse uitgewers (Human en Rousseau, Kaapstad, 1965) van die boek.
In die epiloog van die boek skets James Burnham (Professor in filosofie aan die Universiteit van New York) die konteks vir die aanvalle. Hy wys onder andere uit dat
“vryheidsvegters” feitelik nooit die lande wat hulle “bevry” self bewoon het nie, en indien wel, slegs `n klein deel van hulle lewens en dat terreur teen die teikenland altyd vanuit ander lande beplan word. Angola het in 1961 `n bevolking van 5,000,000 mense gehad waarvan 4, 750,000 Afrikane en 250,000 Europeërs. Die Afrikane kon verder
ingedeel word in die Bailundu of Ovimbundu (1,500,000), Kimbundu (1, 000,000), Bakongo (500,000), Lunda (400,000), en Ganguela (400,000). Die 250,000 Europeërs het hoofsaaklik uit Portugese, maar ook taamlik baie Nederlanders en Duitsers bestaan. Die Portugese het Angola sedert 1483 begin bewoon, `n jaar nadat Diago Cam (of Cão) dit ontdek het. `n Katolieke katedraal is in 1534 gebou in São Salvador. In 1576 is Luanda gestig. Gedurende die 15de eeu het Hottentotte en Boesmans
groot dele van Angola beset, maar hulle is mettertyd uitgedryf of opgeëet deur die voorvaders van bovermelde Afrika stamme. Burnham kom derhalwe tot die gevolgtrekking dat die Portugese eintlik die ware inboorlinge van die streek is, omdat hulle dit bewoon het voordat die Boesmans/ Hottentotte of kannibalistiese stamme dit begin beset het.
Die Angolese bevolking was volkome geïntegreerd tydens die sestigerjare van die twintigste eeu. Huwelike oor die rasgrense was algemeen, die amptelike taal was en is steeds Portugees, en driekwart van administratiewe en burokratiese poste (bestuursposisies ingesluit) was bekleë deur Afrikane. Die veiligheidsdiens het uit 8,000 persone
bestaan, (2,000 soldate en 6,000 polisie). Hiervan was 5,000 Afrikane en 3,000 Europeërs.
In 1954 is die União das Populações do Norte de Angola (UPNA) gestig wat in 1958 herdoop is na União das Populações de Angola (UPA) ten einde `n meer nasionale kleur te verkry. Dit was die UPA wat die aanvalle van 15 Maart 1961 geloods het. Die leier van die UPA was Holden Roberto, `n Bakongolees wat in São Salvador, Angolagebore is. Hy was getroud met `n Brit, Susan Milton en het in 1954 die UPNA gestig nadat hy tevergeefs probeer het om met die steun van Protestantse sendelinge homself tot koning uit te roep.
Hy het vervolgens uitgewyk na Akkra, Ghana waar hy kennis gemaak het met Nkrumah asook ander Afrika Rewolusionêre leiers tydens die eerste Afrika Kongres in 1958.
In Augustus 1959 het hy die VSA besoek waar hy hand-om-die-blaas gesit het met verskeie VN afgevaardigdes, die “State Department”, CIA, AFL- CIO, en
Eleanor Roosevelt. Al hierdie instellings het morele sowel as finansiële steun aan Roberto verleen. Ondertussen het hy ook dik bevriend geraak met
Patrice Lumumba(rewolusionê leier in die Kongo). Nadat die Kongo onafhanklik geword het in Julie 1960, het Roberto sy voorbereidings in Leopoldville (hedendaagse Kinshasa) vir Maart 1961 begin onder die welwillende oë van Lumumba, die VN, VSA, Sowjet en Tsjeggiese
Rekrute is gewerf deur leiers na Bankongolese dorpies in die Noorde van Angola te stuur en `n aantal mense te vermoor en te vermink pour encourager les autres (om ander aan te moedig deur oormatige straf as voorbeeld te toon – n.a.v Voltaire gedurende die Franse Rewolusie). Tydens die werwingsproses is daar mildelik gebruik gemaak van toordokters se invloed, fetisjisme en kannibalisme van oorblyfsels. Die vryheidsvegters is bewapen met machetes (kapmesse) asook met
gewere van die oud Belgiese Force Publique lede en die nuwe VN weermag. Op die vooraand van die aanvalle het die meeste hennep (hemp)
en ander dwelms gebruik om moed te skep vir die aanvalle.
In hoofstuk 2 beskryf Teixeira die redes wat gevange UPA lede aangevoer het vir hulle toetrede tot die stryd: 26 van hulle is oorreed deur die belofte van kabinetsposte of ambassadeurskappe by die VN. `n Vyftienjarige jarige seun is oorreed om sy Blanke aanneempa, `n mediese dokter, te vermoor sodat hy sy instrumente asook sy graad
kan kry om as dokter te praktiseer.
`n Bende leier (hoofstuk 6) wat gevang is na die slagting van mense op `n eksperimentele plaas naby M’Bridge het te kenne gegee dat hy nooit persoonlik met die Portugese in aanraking gekom het nie. Sy ouers het na die Kongo geëmigreer vanaf São Salvador (waar hy gebore is) toe hy twee jaar oud was. Hy is deur
Holden Roberto wysgemaak dat hy `n belangrike pos by die VN sou bekleë indien hy die taak wat hom opgelê was goed sou uitvoer. Verder is hy daarvan oortuig dat die res van wêreld hom sou ondersteun in sy “vryheidstryd” teen die (Portugese) “tirannie.” Hy het sy Portugese vangers die beginsels van menseregte verduidelik soos wat dit deur die VN voorgehou word en gevra dat sy geval voor die VN moet verskyn aangesien hy `n politieke gevangene is wat die vryheidsaak gedien het.


Die vernaamste aanvalle wat Teixeira beskryf, word vervolgens opgesom volgens plek van aanval, vooraftekens/ waarskuwings (indien enige), ooggetuies/ oorlewendes en hoe die aanvalle afgeloop het.
Luvo was naby die grens met die Kongo geleë. `n Portugese vragmotorbestuurder en sy Kimbundo handlanger moes houtkratte by die saagmeule op Luvo oplaai. Met dagbreek van 15 Maart 1961 het hulle by die saagmeule opgedaag en is deur die nagwag meegedeel dat daar “snaakse dinge” aan die gang is op Luvo: Helfte (almal Bakongos) van die werkers by die meule het die voorafgaande twee dae nie vir werk opgedaag nie, ander Bakongos op die dorpie het die Portugese vuil uitgekyk, en daar was ook vreemdelinge wat deftig aangetrek was en nie vantevore opgemerk is nie.
Op daardie oomblik het `n lawaai van die dorpie se kant losgebars, en is angskrete, geweerskote en uitroepe gehoor. Terwyl die nagwag gaanondersoek instel, het die vragmotorbestuurder en sy helper die vragmotor agter `n stapel kratte op die saagmeule perseel gaan versteek, en self boop die stapel kratte geklim vanwaar hulle `n
uitsig oor beide die saagmeule en `n gedeelte van die dorpie gehad het. Tussen twee en driehonderd oproeriges het 42 bloeiende liggame (die hele wit bevolking van Luvo waaronder vrouens en kinders in hulle tienerjare) in die rigting van die saagmeule gesleep.
`n Bedrewe persoon (duidelik `n werknemer van die meule) uit die skare se geledere het die saag aangeskakel. Die res van die groep het die dooies en beseerdes ontklee, aan `n plank vasgegespe en onder groot gejuig en doodskrete van die lewende slagoffers in die lengte (soos boomstompe) met die voete in die rigting van die roterende lem in stukkies opgesaag. Die twee ooggetuies het vir ure gewag voordat hulle ondersoek gaan instel het, bevind het dat die dorpie verlate was, en toe met die vragmotor hoofsaaklik met ompaaie gereis, en later per voet totdat hulle Carmona op die aand van 17 Maart 1961 bereik het om hulle storie te vertel.


Die outeur se neef het bg. koffieplantasie besit. Volgens die oorlewende ooggetuie (`n Blanke assistant voorman) was die oggend van 15 Maart 1961 baie mistig. Hy en die voorman het 7H00 voor die eienaar se huis by `n buite tafel onder `n boom gesit en wag vir lg. sodat hulle die werkplanne vir die dag kan bespreek. Om 7H30 het die Bakongo baaswerker en anderwerkers waarvan baie vreemd, opgedaag. Volgens die baaswerker was die Bailundo werkers siek en moes vrywilligers gehuur
word om vir die dag in te staan.
Byna onmiddellik het die Bakongo werkers tot die aanval oorgegaan met hoofsaaklik die kapmesse waarmee hulle ontbossing uitvoer. Die Afrika hoofbediende is eerste aangeval, sommige het die huis, stoor en koffieboon oes aan die brand gesteek terwyl andere die eienaar, voorman en twee vroulike Afrika bediendes opgekap het. Die eienaar se vrou (wie die volgende dag sou verjaar) en haar seun wat op besoek vanaf die kosskool was, is in die huis oorval. Die assistant voorman
het drie van sy aanvallers se skedels met `n stuk loodpyp inmekaar geslaan voordat hy in die mis ingehardloop, in `n gat binne die bosgespring en himself met blare bedek het.
`n Slagter, sy vrou en dogter was die enigste oorlewendes tydens die aanval op Quitexe. Die dorpie se besighede is dig bymekaar geleë en open 8H00 in die oggende as die kerkklok lui. Vanuit die vensters van sy woonhuis in die verdieping bo die slaghuis, kon die slagter die twee kruidenierswinkels, klerewinkel, apteek, hardeware-en-
plaasbenodighede winkel, vulstasie, handelspos en poskantoor sien.
Die slagter se daaglikse roetine was om 6H00 op te staan, diere te versorg, en vleis en vis te verwerk voordat hy aansit vir `n ontbyt om 7H30. Die oggend van 15 Maart 1961 was hy te onrustig om te eet. Sy dogter het opgemerk dat dit buitengewoon stil is buitekant. Die Afrika klante, wat wag vir die winkeldeure om oop te maak, is nie so
luidrugtig soos gewoonlik nie, lag glad nie, bondel in groepe voor elke winkel en praat in gedempte stemme. Hulle dra ook almal lang jasse in die hitte. Die slagter se dogter vra of hulle dalk ietsversteek onder die jasse.
Die slagter steek sy kop by die venster uit en groet die groep van agt wat voor die slaghuis staan. Slegs drie bekendes groet terug terwyl die ander vyf bly staan met hulle koppe omlaag. Die meisie bied aan om die ander winkeliers te gaan waarsku maar haar pa sê haar aan om die gewere en ammunisie nader te bring.
Om 8H00 begin die kerkklok te lui, die winkels maak hulle deure oop en die klandisie beweeg binne. Binne `n paar minute weerklink angskrete (meestal van vrouens en kinders oor die hele dorpie). Die groep voor die slaghuis bring hulle pangas en tuisgemaakte haelgewere te voorskyn en begin aan die slaghuis se deur te kap terwyl hulle “Mata! UPA! Mata! UPA!” (Maak dood! UPA! Maak dood! UPA!) skree. Die slagter en sy dogter (wat beide knap jagters is) maai hulle binne 30 sekondes af
terwyl sy vrou gewere laai en aangee.
Die krete verflou tot `n sagte gekerm soos wat die slagoffers sterf. `n Paar bebloede slagoffers hardloop die strate in, maar word ingehardloop en arms, bene, en koppe word afgekap. Die slagter en sy dogter skiet op die aanvallers, `n voortvlugtige vriend van die slagter beland in sy spervuur en word per ongeluk doodgeskiet terwyl
sy dogter lg se aanvallers platskiet. `n Dogtertjie van die klerewinkel probeer ook vlug toe die besoekende geneesheer, Dr Sousa, vanaf Carmona in sy Land Rover opdaag en skerp moet rem om haar nie te tref nie. Op daardie oomblik word haar kop oopgekap en Sousa skiet haar aanvaller dood met sy outomatiese pistool. Hy word deur die
slagter aangesê om Carmona te gaan waarsku. Die aanvallers het verdwynen `n afdeling soldate het in die middag van Carmona op die toneel
Carmona was die hoofstad van die Uige Distrik en `n moderne dorpie met neon straatligte en 5000 inwoners. Dr Sousa het omtrent 10H00 vanaf Quitexe opgedaag om die inwoners te waarsku. Kerkklokke is laat lui ten einde al die inwoners voor die gimnasium te laat vergader. `n Burgerlike brigade is onmiddellik saamgestel. Daar is besluit dat
alle skerpskutters met hulle gewere voor vensters in die boonste verdiepings van huise op die buitewyke van die dorpie stelling sou inneem. Vrouens en kinders het in die gimnasium gaan skuil. Mans en seuns het met enige wapen tot hulle beskikking die buitewyke begin patrolleer in oop vragmotors, sportkarre, Land Rovers en jeeps. Die
verdedigers moes op die aanvallers fokus en soveel as van hulle so gou as moontlik doodmaak. Niks (selfs nie brandstigting) moes die aandag van hierdie doelwit aflei nie. `n Afdeling van 18 soldate onder leiding van `n sersant het die kragstasie beskerm. Die omroepster van die plaaslike radiostasie is aangesê om kort-kort berigte uit te saai
dat Portugese valskermsoldate met masjiengewere ontplooi is om dieaanvallers te probeer ontmoedig.
Tromme het onophoudelik en ritmies begin slaan vanaf 13H00 en tot en met die aanval voortgeduur. Vier Afrika soldate is uitgestuur om verkenning te gaan doen. `n
Aanvalsmag van meer as dertig duisend Bokangos was op pad, dronk en bedwelmd. Om 20H00 is die omgewing verlig met fakkels en was die tromslae oorverdowend. Terselftertyd het die “Mata! UPA! Mata! UPA!” kreet losgebars. Kerkklokke is laat lui om die aanvallers te verwar.
Aanvalle is vanuit drie rigtings geloods. Die kragstasie is eerste aangeval maar tot stilstand gebring toe die aanvallers begin struikel oor hulle gesneuwelde makkers wat voor masjiengeweervuur geval het. Die burgermag is aangesê om met voertuie in die aanvallers in te dryf en onmiddellik tot die teenaanval oor te gaan toe hulle sigbaar word. Dit is inderdaad gedoen en hand tot hand gevegte het uitgebreek terwyl die verdedigers self “Mata! Mata!” skree. Die aanvallers val terug om
te hergroepeer en die laaste aanval word omstreeks 24H00 uitgevoer. Dit misluk jammerlik en die aanvallers blaas die aftog.


Vrouens is verkrag en vermink, kinders is opgekap en hulle liggaamsdele is in takke van bome opgehang, sommige slagoffers se buike is oopgesny en met gras en hout opgestop en aan die brand gesteek. `n Mev Reis wat gemartel, herhaaldelik verkrag en vir dood agter gelaat is, was die enigste oorlewende.
`n Klein plasie naby die M’Bridge eksperimentele plaas is vroeg die oggend van 15 Maart 1961 eerste aangeval. Die leier van die aanvallers waarvan in die AGTERGROND ook vermeld word, het aguerdente of tuisgemaakte brandewyn van die bejaarde boer en sy vrou geëis. Die boer is ingelig dat sy aguerdente sleg smaak en toe hy verskoning
maak, is sy keel deur die leier met `n kombuismes afgeny. Sy volgelinge is daarna beveel om die kop af te sny en saam met sy vrou in die bed te sit sodat sy
kan onthou dat die leier die huis besoek het.
Die aanval op die eksperimentele plaas het 6H00 plaasgevind. Die enigste oorlewende was `n voorman wat met sy jaggeweer op die aanvallers begin losbrand het. Sy ammunisie het opgeraak en hy het sy Afrika bediende na `n buurhuis gestuur om nog ammunisie te kry. Die aanvallers het egter laasgenoemde gevang en sy kop en geslaggsorgane afgesny en seëvierend omhoog gehou. Gevange manlike slagoffers se oë is uitgesteek, hande is afgekap, hulle is ontman, hulle buike is oopgekap en die ingewande is uitgetrek terwyl hulle nog lewendig was. Een van die oorlewende se vriende is lewendig afgeslag.
Kleiner kinders is in die lug opgegooi sodat hulle bene breek voordat daar voetbal met die sterwende kinders gespeel is. Vrouens en meisies se klere is afgeskeur, hulle is verkrag, elkeen se borste is afgesny en stokke is deur hulle onderlywe gesteek. `n Meisie van agtien jaar is aan `n boom gekruisig, haar borste is afgesny en in elk van haar uitstrekkende hande geplaas. Die oorlewende ooggetuie se hande en voete is vasgebind, peper is in sy oë gegooi en hy is op die grond rondgesleep voordat `n lugmagvliegtuig laag oor die plaas gevlieg het en masjiengewere die terroriste begin neervel het. Die leier van die terroriste bende is tydens hierdie operasie gevang.
`n Militêre patrollie het die slagoffers van die slagting by Mavoio ontdek. Omtrent al die huisgesinne is in die huis oorval en selfs die honde en katte is in stukke gekap. In die laaste huis is tot die babatjie in die kotjie se armpies en beentjies afgekap.
Die gemeenskap (naby aan die Kongo grens) bestaande uit Portugese en Bakongos was so vreedsaam dat die boere en winkeliers nie eers wapens aangehou het nie. Ten spyte daarvan dat hulle bewus was van terreur in die Kongo, het hulle hulself wysgemaak dat “dit nie in Madimba kan gebeur nie.” Toe die aanvalle in die omgewing rugbaar word, het die hele gemeenskap besluit om te voet na die nabygeleë São Salvador te vlug. Op pad soontoe is besluit om die vrouens, kinders en `n paar mans in die
bosse te laat terwyl die ander mans wapens en versterkings vanuit São Salvador sou bekom.
Toe hulle terugkeer na die plek in die bos waar hulle die vrouens en kinders agtergelaat het, het hulle die verminkte lyke aangetref. Daar word vermoed dat die lawaai van die aanvallers in die verlate dorpie die kleinkinders en babas laat huil het wat hulle skuilplek verraai het. Vrouens is vanselfsprekend eers verkrag voordat hulle opgekap is.
Een afgekapte arm het nog steeds krampagtig `n rosekrans vasgeklou.


Die vlieënier wat Teixeira na Maquela Do Zombo gevlieg het, vertel vir die skrywer van gruwels wat op verskeie kleiner plekkies gepleeg is. Dan sê hy met hoeveel ongeloof en verontwaardiging buitelandse (Engelse en Franse) joernaliste reageer as die feite van die aanvalle aan hulle uitgewys word, so al asof hulle nie die reg het om sleg te
praat van die sadistiese moordenaars nie. In die epiloog meld Burnham dat Holden Roberto in Julie 1961 teenoor `n Franse koerant (Le Monde) erken het dat die gruwels gepleeg is, maar dat dit geregverdig was. Ondervraging van gewone ondersteuners van Roberto het geopenbaar dat onafhanklikheid die roof van huise, motors, vrouens,en geld beteken, en dat hulle vir die res van hulle lewens nie meer hoef te werk nie. ( Ook die redenasie van die ANC Jeugliega en werklose barbare).

Holden Roberto en UPA is nooit veroordeel of tot verantwoording geroep vir hierdie gruwels nie. Dit is stilswyend deur die Weste goedgekeur of gerasionaliseer in die ”
Winde van Verandering” gees wat die sestigerjare gekenmerk het. Hier wag ‘n wrede ontnugtering vir die blankes van Suid Afrika. Dit gaan geen verskil maak of jy lid is van die DA, ANC, VF+, AWB, HNP of wat ookal nie.
Wat die skrywer hierbo beskryf- is niks nuuts in Afrika nie. In die jare sestig-tydens die mau-Mau aanvalle in Kenia en Tanzanie- gerugsteun deur Jomo Kenyatta se KAU party in kenia- het swart barbare wit settelaarshuise op plase op die selfde maniere aangeval. Diere is wreed vermink deur die hakskeensenings af te kap- en plaashuise is aangeval en wittes wreed vermoor. In gevalle – soos by Eldoret- het hierdie wrede swart barbare ‘n verwagtende vrou gevat- haar lewendig soos ‘n skaap oopgeslag, haar ongebore kind uitgehaal en vermoor- en toe die sterwende vrou bo-oor ‘n bamboesloot oopgesper vasgemaak dat die Bamboes- wat 18 cm per nag groei- regdeur die vrou gegroei het. Op Nanyuki het hulle toegesak op ‘n Christen kerk- en al die ledemate wat in ‘n diens was- voor die voet vermoor. Laas week- het hulle weer in Dodoma- in die Noord-Ooste van Kenia- op ‘n sendelingstasie toegesak en al die werkers vermoor.
Gekyk na Mozambiek- het hierdie wreedaardige voorvalle teen blankes ook voortgeduur op plase in die Villa Peri en Vila De Manica omgewing- asook in die Gorongoza distrik in die sewentiger jare. Daarna het hulle- Joshua Nkomo en Robert Mugabe se ZANU-PF lede- toegeslaan op blankes in Zimbabwe in die Tet, Blantyre en boere in die Masvigo areas- en die aanvalle duur vandag nog voort. In Suid-Afrika is dit reeds ou nuus soos hulle wreedaardig op plase toeslaan en boeregesinne wreed vermoor.Steeds- na jare se slagting- het die internasionale wereld nog ‘n woord gese nie- net omrede die Weste Afrika verkrag vir haar minerale- en dit is beter- besigheidsgewys- om lokale blankes op te offer vir die grotere “prys” om jou myne en petrol maatskappye soos ENRON,BP en MOBIL te kan open in een-of-ander swart staat met goedkeuring van die korrupte staats amptenare as om die blankes te hulp te snel- en jou eie besigheids geleenthede toe te maak deur swart diktators se wrewel op die hals te haal.So ook sal die internasionale wereld nie ‘n woord oor die slagting in Suid-Afrika rep nie.
Die blqankes in Suid Afrika verkeer onder die waan dat dit “nooit” in die stede sal gebeur nie…die polisie sal hulle beskerm. meneer- mevrou- die wit stiksiendes….u ken nie die swart barbaar nie! U weet nie waarmee u te doen het nie. Die swarte haat jou as ‘n blanke- en om een nag- in die stilte van die donkerte- taxis te laai en vyf-vyf gewapende swartes by elke huis af te laai- en in ‘n ge-orkestreede aanslag een hele wit gebied uit te roei terwyl jy slaap…kos hulle net mooi NIKS!/b] Jy sal nie eers wakker word die volgende oggend om die “polisie” te skakel nie….JY SAL DOOD EN IN STUKKE WEES! Jou nietige beskermings fasiliteite in en om jou huis gaan jou net mooi NIKS help nie. Die blankes in Suid-Afrika gaan een baie, baie duur les leer vir hulle arrogante traak-my-nie-agtige houdings. Onthou die ANC se manier van “liberation” in die sewentigerjare? Onhou u nog die wreedaardige halssnoermoorde? Is Winnie Mandela OOIT tronkstraf opgele vir haar aandeel aan die moorde? Onthou u die Dobsonville en Natal oorloe tussen die Zoeloes en Xhosas- hoe hulle mekaar wreed uitgemoor het en nie eers die polisie kon hulle stop nie? het u al gesien hoe die swartes in hulle massas georganiseer word in rekordtyd- en hoe hulle onbeheersd in hulle duisende deur strate kan toi-toi en alles om hulle vernietig? Dink u steeds u sal hulle kan keer met u veiligheids heining en dief alarm?
Die ANC en kommunistiese samelopers is besig om deur hulle netwerke miljoene swartes van Afrika in te bring- en lei derduisende swartes op die huidige oomblik op jou betaalde fasikliteite by Walhlmanstahal en menig ander basisse-sowel as in Zimbabwe en Mosambiek op om jou keel te kom afsny. Die mooi woordjies en “demokratiese” praatjies wat hulle kwytraak- is ‘om jou te sus en te speel vir tyd om hulle eie aanvalsmag in orde te kry. Hulle oorheers jou in getalle op 30-1…en hulle getalle groei by die dag. Na 16 jaar se verdrukking en afpersing, moorde en slawerny- het jou oe nog nie oopgegaan nie? My volk se ondergang word deur sy eie argelose argitekte bewerkstellig.

This is a story about Nelson Mandela, the world-famous “freedom fighter” and “democrat.” You’ll have to pardon those slightly sardonic quotes, because I’m afraid this is that kind of story: a bit iconoclastic, and likely to provoke howls of outrage from Western liberals who see Mandela as a benign black moderate who led an army of hymn-singing Uncle Toms to the promised land.
The technical term for those liberals is “useful idiot,” but even I must concede that their intervention was actually quite intelligent, back in the 1950s, when this all started. In those days, good men were weak, and their apartheid adversaries invincible on all but one score: propaganda. The war of perceptions thus became the most critical of all battlefields, with the African National Congress constantly seeking to exaggerate apartheid’s evils while portraying itself as “good” in a way that was universally appealing.
In the early sixties, Special Branch detectives came upon a piece of evidence that made this a bit tricky in Mandela’s case – a handwritten essay titled, “How To Be A Good Communist,” in which the leader of the ANC’s newly-formed military wing opined that South Africa would become “a land of milk and honey” under Communist rule. We were told that Mandela was innocently toying with Marxist ideas, trying to understand their appeal, but this made little sense. Almost all his co-conspirators were Communists, wedded to a Sovietist doctrine that envisaged a two-phase ending to the SA struggle – a “national democratic revolution,” followed by second revolution in which the Marxist-Leninist vanguard took power.
If Mandela wasn’t in on this plot, it would have been exceptionally stupid of him to participate in it, and Mandela was not stupid. On the other hand, he had to be very careful what he said on this score. The ANC needed the support of Western liberals, and by l964, those folks had come to realize that Communist revolutions inevitably led to the outcome satirized in George Orwell’s Animal Farm – a dictatorship of pigs who hogged the best things for themselves, impoverished the proletariat and murdered or imprisoned dissenters by the million.
In such a climate, one didn’t want to focus attention on that hand-written “milk and honey” essay. On the contrary: one wanted the world to see Mandela as a democrat, willing to die for values that Westerners held sacred. Toward this end, Mandela and his lawyers (with a bit of help from British journalist Anthony Sampson) crafted a masterful speech for Mandela to deliver from the dock during the Rivonia trial.
“The ideological creed of the ANC is, and always has been, the creed of African nationalism,” he said. “It is true that there has been close cooperation between the ANC and the Communist Party. But cooperation in this case is merely proof of a common goal – the removal of white supremacy.”
Mandela went to describe himself as a democrat in the classic Western sense, and a fervent admirer of the British and American systems of governance. “Africans just want a share in the whole of South Africa,” he said. “Above all, we want equal political rights, because without them our disabilities will be permanent…It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.”
These words rang out around the world, and still echo today. Type Mandela’s name into Google, and you come upon millions of essays, articles and book-length hagiographies depicting Madiba in exactly the way he presented himself in that speech: a black liberal, driven to take up arms by a white supremacist state that seemed utterly impermeable to calls for dialogue.
The Rivonia statement has become the foundational text of a semi-religious movement that seeks to canonize Mandela as the 20th century’s greatest proponent of freedom and democracy. Or perhaps I should say, “bourgeois democracy,” in order to distinguish between democracy of the sort practiced in Britain and America and the diseased parody encountered in Marxist-Leninist police states. Nelson Mandela never stood for that sort of democracy.
Or did he?
It takes a brave man to address that question, and lo, one such has emerged. Professor Stephen Ellis heads the African Studies Centre at the University of Leiden, and holds the Desmond Tutu chair of social sciences at the Vrije University of Amsterdam. He is also one of the great authorities on the ANC, author of Comrades Against Apartheid and a former editor of Africa Confidential, a magazine valued for its authoritative gossip about what was really going inside the anti-apartheid movement in the l980s.
Now Ellis has published a study that sheds startling new light on Mandela’s early political career and the circumstances under which he launched his armed struggle against apartheid. The study contains at least one revelation that can only be described as a bombshell — Mandela was, at least for a time, secretly a member of South Africa’s Communist Party.
The strange thing about Ellis’s bombshell is that South Africans appear to be deaf to its detonation. I know this because I started hyping it to fellow journalists the instant it appeared in print. To a man (or woman) they all shrugged and said, “So what? It’s not really a story.” This tells us something interesting about South Africans: we are at once riven with ideological obsessions and hopelessly ideologically naïve.
The blame for this rests largely on our charming and literate Communists, who go to great pains in their memoirs to disguise the true nature of their beliefs. They tell us that they stood for fairness, justice, and racial equality, and against all forms of exploitation and oppression. They’d also like us to believe that their party was outlawed in l950 because they treated blacks as friends and wanted them to enjoy the franchise. Well, yes. I suppose this was a factor, but the overriding consideration that led to the SACP’s banning was something else entirely.
At the Yalta Conference of l945, Soviet dictator Josef Stalin assured the Western powers that all the countries his forces occupied at the end of World War 2 would be allowed to determine their own destinies via free elections. With his international image in mind, Stalin instructed commissars in the occupied territories to observe the outward forms of “bourgeois democracy.” Towards this end, liberals and social democrats were lured into broad fronts in which all key decisions were secretly made by tiny Communist minorities, with the backing of the Soviet’s secret police apparatus.
These Communist conspirators then staged spurious elections that brought Soviet puppet regimes to power throughout Eastern Europe, usually with majorities implausibly close to 100 percent. Historians concede that Tito of Yugoslavia was genuinely popular, but elsewhere, the rule of Soviet proxies was imposed by deceit and enforced by tyranny. Tens of thousands of class enemies were executed, millions imprisoned, all vestiges of freedom eradicated.
The problem with Communist parties, including the South African one, is that they blindly supported this Soviet outrage, and seemed intent on pulling similar moves everywhere. If Joe Slovo and Rusty Bernstein were still alive, they’d stoutly deny such charges, but they’d be lying. We know this because Rusty’s wife Hilda lived long enough to acquire a shrewd understanding of herself and the Communist movement of which she was a life-long part. “Joe and Rusty were hardline Stalinists,” she said in a 2004 interview. “Anything the Soviets did was right. They were very, very pro-Soviet.”
It is important to note that Mrs. Bernstein was by no means suggesting that her husband or Joe were evil men. On the contrary: they were religious zealots who genuinely believed that the Soviets had discovered the cure for all human misery.
“I’ve often thought about this,” she said. “They wanted something bigger than themselves, something to believe in. People are always seeking for the meaning of life and if you’re not religious, what is it? To us, working together in a movement that had rules and attitudes and comradeship gave important meaning to our lives.”
In short, being a Communist was much like being a Christian. One studied the sacred texts of Marx and Engels, engaged in polemics as a form of prayer and ruthlessly suppressed all doubts, including one’s own. Mrs. Bernstein says she was adept at this until l956, when Kruschev revealed the appalling extent of his predecessor Stalin’s atrocities (he murdered around 16 million people, either by having them shot for thought crimes or starving them to death with mad policies). Her husband dismissed these reports as “lies and capitalist propaganda,” but Hilda’s bones told her it was all true.
“We had a fight,” she said, “a battle that went on into the small hours of the morning. I wanted to leave, but we had three dependent children, and there wasn’t any possible way in which we could have separated economically and so on. So we stayed together, and I accommodated myself by refusing to talk about it any more.”
And so it came to pass that Hilda Bernstein, the secret doubter, had a ringside seat for the epochal events of the late fifties and early sixties, a time when her husband Rusty was one of South Africa’s most senior Communists, and one of Mandela’s closest allies moreover.
It was in this capacity that she learned of Madiba’s secret membership in the Communist sect. “Mandela denies that he was ever a member of the party,” she said, “but I can tell you that he was a member of the party for a period.”
When this interview appeared on the website of the O’Malley archive, it caused a brief frisson among old Cold Warriors, especially when former SACP central committee member Brian Bunting verified Hilda’s account. The interview also caught the eye of the aforementioned Professor Ellis, a lifelong student of the byzantine inner workings of SACP. He notes that the SACP of the early sixties was of necessity a pathologically secretive organization, a network of cells with little or no knowledge of each other and no official membership records.
“SACP members were formally required to keep their membership secret,” says Ellis. “In principle, only the members of each four or five-person cell knew each other. One person reported to the next higher level, and so on. But there was also a special category of ultra-secret members who were not required to join a cell and whom even very senior party members might not know about.” With this in mind, Ellis proceeded very cautiously before publishing anything about Mandela’s apparent role in the Communist conspiracy.
One item in his files was an old police report claiming that two arrested Communists had identified Mandela as an SACP member.  A similar admission appeared in the minutes of a 1982 SACP meeting. The final breakthrough came when Russian researcher Irina Filitova interviewed veteran conspirator Joe Matthews, who confirmed that Mandela served on the party’s innermost central committee alongside him. “In the light of this evidence,” Ellis concludes, “it seems most likely that Nelson Mandela joined the party in the late l950s or in 1960, and that he was co-opted onto the Central Committee in the latter year, the same year as Joe Matthews.”
Even as I write this I sense that I am losing the average South African. I can almost see you shrugging and saying, “So? This still isn’t a story.” But it is a story, and here’s why: if Ellis’s evidence is correct, the fatal decision to launch a war against apartheid had nothing to do with the ANC. It was a decision taken unilaterally by the Communist Party, and then imposed on ANC president Albert Luthuli by a prominent African nationalist who was secretly a member of the Communist underground. His name: Nelson Mandela.
It seems fair to say that black South Africans have entertained thoughts of armed revolt since the day Jan van Riebeeck landed in Table Bay. It is therefore clear, as Ellis stresses in his landmark paper, that no political party held a patent on the term armed struggle. The Pan-Africanist Congress was dead keen on it, and elements in the ANC thought it was inevitable from the early fifties onwards.
The difference between those organizations and the Communist Party is that peaceful change via the ballot box was never really on the Communist agenda, because that sort of change invariably left the capitalist edifice standing. “Classes do not commit suicide,” said Joe Slovo, a dutiful acolyte of Vladimir Lenin. Enemies of the working class had to be undermined, subverted, and conclusively defeated before the socialist millennium could begin.
There was a time when this socialist millennium did not seem particularly attractive to South Africa’s so-called “bourgeois nationalists,” Marxist code for Africans who would have been perfectly happy to defeat the Boers in a bourgeois democratic election and then help themselves to a fairer share of the nation’s riches. Communists did not approve of “bourgeois nationalists,” and vice versa, which is one reason why Nelson Mandela spent the l940s breaking up Communist rallies with his fists.
In the early fifties, however, the SACP realized that cooperating with the nationalists was likely to hasten the fall of the Boers, thus creating conditions conducive to a more rapid advance towards true socialism. At more or less the same time, nationalists like Mandela realized that the Communists could bring several desirables to the party. Around half of them were white. They had cars, houses, telephones, organizational skills and access to funding. Soon, Communists were supporting the ANC’s legal campaigns and recruiting ANC members into their own underground party.
As Ellis observes, this strategy did not enjoy the approval of the high priests of Marxist-Leninist revolutionary science, who were located in Moscow. It was a home-grown initiative, devised as a means of amplifying the influence of a tiny body of true believers. (At the time, the SACP had barely 500 members.) The SACP was thus delighted to discover, at a 1960 conference in Moscow, that these high priests were now thinking along similar lines. The imperial powers were pulling out of Africa, and alliances with previously detestable nationalists provided a way for tiny bands of Communist intellectuals to stay in the game, and perhaps wind up in control of a few key ex-colonies.
Out of this emerged the SACP’s new revolutionary doctrine, which has always reminded me of the hoary old fable in which a scorpion convinces a frog to carry it across a river. The frog (or bourgeois nationalist) does all the work, staging a “democratic national revolution” that topples the imperial or colonial power. The scorpion (representing the Communist cause) goes along for the ride, only to sting the frog to death just as it reaches the far bank. The punchline of the original remains entirely apposite: scorpions do such things because that is their nature.
Something else happened in l960, something very important. The catalyst was the PAC, a movement of hardline African nationalists who’d broken away from the ANC the previous year on the grounds that it was “dominated by white Communists” whose ultimate loyalties were open to question (see above). In April, l960, the PAC staged a nationwide protest against the hated pass laws. In Sharpeville, police opened fire on a crowd of PAC supporters, killing an estimated 69. The resulting outburst of rage shook the apartheid government to its core, and led to the outright banning of both the PAC and ANC.
From afar, it seemed that the mood in South Africa had at last turned revolutionary, which is presumably why Joe Matthews and Michael Harmel of the SACP were given a stellar reception when they turned up in Beijing a few months later to canvass support for armed struggle.
According to Ellis, the Chinese had previously been sceptical of such plans, but now, the SACP delegates were considered so important that Chairman Mao himself took time to meet them. They were accorded a similar honour in Moscow, where they apparently stayed in Stalin’s former dacha while conducting top-secret talks with senior Soviet officials.
The precise outcome of these discussions remains uncertain, but Ellis presumes that Matthews and Harmel came away with pledges of support, because the SACP now moved swiftly forward, adopting a policy of armed struggle at a conference in Johannesburg “towards the end of 1960.”
It now became necessary for the SACP to convince the ANC to join its initiative. White Communists couldn’t act in this regard, because they weren’t allowed to join the racially exclusive ANC or take part in its deliberations. The task thus fell to black ANC leaders who wore two hats – which is to say, were members of both the ANC and the SACP. In some cases, this joint ANC-SACP affiliation was open and well-known, at least to those in the underground. In others, it was secret. The most important of these secret members was the charismatic Nelson Mandela.
On the day the SACP took its fateful decision, Mandela was a defendant in the Treason Trial, a marathon affair that had been dragging on since l956. The rest of South Africa was extremely tense, but inside Judge Rumpff’s courtroom, the atmosphere was oddly congenial, considering that Mandela and his co-accused were on trial for high treason, and that the three judges were officials of a white supremacist regime that Mandela frequently characterized as “Nazi.”
In theory, the gap between the white judges and the mostly black accused was unbridgeable, but these men had been staring at one another across the courtroom for years, sparring, joking, taking each other’s measure and acquiring a measure of mutual respect.
All the accused were out on bail, but when they were re-detained during the post-Sharpeville State of Emergency, Judge Bekker’s wife came to their aid, running errands on their behalf and carrying messages to their families. Judge Kennedy was so impressed by the pro-ANC testimony of Professor ZK Matthews that he came down from the bench and shook Matthews’ hand, saying, “I hope we meet again under better circumstances.” Judge Rumpff was a grumpy old Afrikaner and a reputed Broederbonder, but even he seemed to be softening.
On March 23, l961, Rumpff took the unprecedented step of interrupting the defence’s closing argument, saying, in effect, we don’t really need to hear this. Some of the accused took this to mean that the judges had decided to disregard the evidence and hang them – the predictable totalitarian outcome. They were wrong. A week later, Rumpff asked the accused to rise, and pronounced every one of them innocent.
This was a dumbfounding outcome, given the enormous resources the apartheid state had devoted to the treason case. Prime Minister Hendrik Verwoerd was in the habit of telling the world that most blacks supported the principle of separate development, and that only a handful of misguided troublemakers opposed it. Rumpff’s judgement annihilated that argument. In rejecting the state’s case, he had in effect ruled that the ANC’s cause was just, its grievances legitimate, and its strategy of non-violent defiance acceptable in the eyes of reasonable men.
This outcome hugely strengthened the hand of ANC president Albert Luthuli, a devout Christian who continued to believe that peaceful change was possible in South Africa. After the Sharpeville shootings, his stance was bitterly criticized by ANC radicals, who thought the time for talking was over. Rumpff’s verdict suggested otherwise. It showed that South Africa was still a land of law, with judges willing to hand down decisions that infuriated the ruling party.
South Africa also had a relatively free press, a vigorous democracy (albeit for whites only) and, as Mandela acknowledges in Long Walk To Freedom, a police force that still conformed to British norms, with due process respected and torture at this stage unheard-of. Some observers saw Rumpff’s verdict as a watershed of sorts, a development that could easily have led to further liberalization.
Nelson Mandela was totally disinterested. In Long Walk To Freedom, he writes that he went underground within hours of Rumpff’s verdict. Officially, his mission was to organize popular support for a national convention, but Ellis thinks this unlikely. “A close analysis of the campaign for a national convention concludes that this initiative was primarily intended to provide proponents of armed struggle with a paper trail that would justify their forthcoming change of policy,” he writes.
In other words, the SACP was angling to regain the moral high ground. It knew that the verdict had come as a surprise to international observers, who were left wondering if Verwoerd’s regime was indeed as evil as it was held to be. But the SACP also knew that Verwoerd could be relied on to reject any call for a national convention, thus restoring his reputation as an intransigent racist. As Ellis notes, this would allow the party to present the coming declaration of war “in the best possible light for public and international consumption.”
The second leg of Mandela’s underground mission was of course to convince ANC president Albert Luthuli to follow the lead the Communists had taken. Luthuli was not a pacifist per se, but he believed that non-violent options remained viable. Like many others in the ANC and even the SACP, he also believed it would be folly of the highest order to take up arms at a point when the ANC was still struggling to organize effective protests.
Luthuli and Mandela had it out in June l961, at a tumultuous meeting of the ANC’s national executive in Tongaat, Natal. The debate raged through the night, but when the sun rose, Mandela was triumphant; the ANC had authorized him to launch Umkhonto we Sizwe, and to start making preparations for war against the apartheid state.
This is Mandela’s version – or more accurately, one of his versions. In Long Walk, he acknowledges that the outcome of his clash with Luthuli was actually very messy. “The policy of the ANC would still be that of non-violence,” he writes, and the new military organization was required to be “entirely separate from the ANC.” Luthuli himself remained committed to non-violence until his death six years later.
Reading between the lines, Mandela seems to be suggesting that Luthuli was willing to turn a blind eye to his military adventure, provided it did not damage the mother organization. Durban Communist Rowley Arenstein rejected this out hand. “Luthuli was simply brushed aside,” he said. “Adoption of armed struggle by the ANC was the act of a Johannesburg SACP clique, a hijacking.”
Arenstein was subsequently purged from the party. Mandela returned to Johannesburg to plan his sabotage campaign, heedless of the counsel of men with clearer heads. “If you throw a stone into the window of a man’s house,” said SACP general secretary Moses Kotane, “you must be prepared for him to come out and chase you. The backlash will be fantastic. The police will go mad.”
The first MK bombs went off on December 16, 1961. The rest is history.
