Welcome To Q Research SOUTH AFRICA

While the world is waking up, we are more divided than ever before, while watching them burn our country to the ground.

Time we dig our own country.

Enough is enough.

Let's be more active.

The world is waking up.

The world is watching.

PEOPLE ARE PAWNS IN THEIR SICK GAME OF GLOBAL DOMINATION.

PEOPLE ARE DIVIDED TO PREVENT A RISING OF THE PEOPLE.

PEOPLE ARE DIVIDED AND TAUGHT TO FIGHT THEMSELVES INSTEAD OF THE RULING CLASS.

RACE VS RACE

RELIGION VS RELIGION

POLITICAL VS POLITICAL

CLASS VS CLASS

SEX VS SEX

WHEN YOU ARE DIVIDED, YOU ARE WEAK

WHEN YOU ARE WEAK, YOU HAVE NO POWER.

WHEN YOU HAVE NO POWER, YOU HAVE NO CONTROL.

STAY STRONG, PATRIOTS.

STAY UNITED, NOT DIVIDED.

YOU ARE WHAT MATTERS.

YOU, AWAKE, IS THEIR GREATEST FEAR.

“Former Scorpions boss lands big job monitoring Russian telecoms firm”

https://www.news24.com/citypress/News/former-scorpions-boss-lands-big-job-monitoring-russian-telecoms-firm-20190823

23 Aug 2019

The former Scorpions head, Leonard McCarthy, has been selected for a top job monitoring a leading Russian telecoms company.

Leonard McCarthy, the former integrity vice president at the World Bank, has been selected as the monitor for Mobile TeleSystems (MTS) as part of the Russian telecoms company’s Foreign Corrupt Practices Act settlement.

MTS, Russia’s leading telecommunications operator and digital services provider, paid $850 million (about R13 billion) and agreed to a three-year monitorship in March to settle charges brought by the US Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission that it bribed officials in Uzbekistan in return for access to the country’s telecoms market.

MTS is the first Russia-based company to settle an Foreign Corrupt Practices Act case.

McCarthy was appointed to head up the Directorate of Special Operations (Scorpions) in April 2003.

The agency, which investigated and prosecuted organised crime and corruption, was officially disbanded in late January 2009.

In June 2008, McCarthy was appointed to the World Bank, where he investigated allegations of fraud and corruption in projects funded by the bank. He left the World Bank in 2017 to run his own compliance firm, LFMcCarthy Associates, in Washington DC.

While he led the World Bank’s anti-corruption enforcement arm as integrity vice-president between 2008 and 2017, McCarthy oversaw a monitorship programme there.

During his tenure as Scorpions head, he was accused of being involved in a “political conspiracy” against President Jacob Zuma due to the timing of corruption charges against the president.

His name is mentioned in the so-called spy tapes, which intercepted conversations between McCarthy and Advocate Bulelani Ngcuka, former head of the National Prosecuting Authority.

“Global energy restructuring veteran KW Miller says nothing comes even close to the Eskom disaster”

https://youtu.be/be4vChJ3E1s

Oct 31, 2022

Now that the ANC government has finally admitted defeat on Eskom by ending its monopoly and last week promising to assume up to ⅔ of its massive debt burden, the facade is being stripped from SA's teetering electricity provider. Global energy turnaround specialist KW Miller, who calls Eskom an "operationally dysfunctional, financially insolvent, unreliable and corrupt entity" says the path forward will be determined by the actions of creditors which own a large chunk of mostly SA government-guaranteed Eskom debt that he says is far higher than the official number of R400bn. Eskom has tapped global bond markets for decades - and according to Miller those who own the debt are now insisting the disaster be urgently addressed. In this powerful interview with Alec Hogg of BizNews.com, media-shy Miller says the only route now open for SA's State-owned electricity provider is for the private sector to take over the productive assets to cut off third-party leeches and criminal syndicates that continue to bleed the utility. Abu Dhabi-based Miller, who rarely grants interviews, says he "made an exception given the importance of the Eskom restructuring to SA citizens."

22:08 – “Many years ago, must be 12 years ago. Howard Buffet, Warren Buffet’s son and very involved in Berkshire Hathaway and Berkshire Hathaway Energy in the United States who had at that stage a farm in South Africa, offered to get involved with Eskom. He even sent over into action with some of the guys at Eskom, I helped them because I knew both sides to put them together and it seemed imminently sensible but nothing came of it because Eskom refused to take outside help.”

25:45 – “By the way for your viewers, I’m going to give you a heads up now. The South African water system is on the verge of collapse up in the Gauteng area. It’s a mess. I think you’re going to see the next crisis in South Africa will be water but we’ll get to that. But water we focus on because it’s needed for power plants. So with that said you come to a point where you can only cannibalize your economy so much. There’s really nothing else to cannibalize. Everything has been stole, Alec.”

26:18 – “The only thing keeping the criminal syndicates alive in South Africa. You want to know the truth? The coal contracts that they skim off of, the diesel contracts, the renewable contracts. All that money gets skimmed off by various actors in South Africa and it completely wrecks the Energy System there. These are the facts that have been going on for many many years and it’s all come home to roost.”

29:54 – “Forensic audit is required. Now I will tell you for a fact that the current government will never allow a forensic audit of Eskom because they will go to jail. Okay, I could swear out affidavits in the Hague and put about 10 to 15 of the senior ANC officials in jail today. If the creditors wanted to do it, meaning we could basically take them into international courts for all the things they’ve done with the creditors’ money. You follow me. That’s international investors but what good is that, they’ve already got billions parked offshore in Mauritius and other places.”

31:18 – “We put out 2 notices, I’m gonna leave this with you because I think everybody needs to understand. One is we declared a state of emergency in the South African energy market. We did that last week. Okay, you’ll hear more about it. Number 2, we’ve declared Eskom the biggest energy industrial Ponzi scheme in global history. The numbers are off the charts. Eskom is a massive Ponzi scheme when you look at how it’s basically been completely undone from within over the years and all of the corruption and fraud that’s ongoing in the contracts today. Even while the wheels are falling off…It’s astounding! It’s something that most people can’t even comprehend.

“SAHRC gives Malema 10 days to retract ‘hate speech’ – he will not”

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/malema-refuses-apologise-hate-speech-sahrc-10-days-9-november/

09-11-2022 20:59

‘…the SAHRC is pursuing and entering a path of frivolous litigation, which is similar to that of AfriForum,’ said the EFF.

The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) ruled that some of the statements made by Julius Malema at an EFF gathering in October amounted to incitement of violence and hate speech. The politician hit back and said the Commission’s labels of the comments were ignorant and it failed to comprehend the “political commentary in its metaphorical, literary and historical sense.”

ALLEGED HATE SPEECH AT EFF RALLY

The Commission received complaints about statements made by Malema at the EFF’s People’s Assembly in the Western Cape on 16 October 2022. There were also complaints about posters and banners displayed at the event.

The SAHRC said the complaints received were corroborated by video recordings of the event.

These were the statements made by Malema:

1. In reference to an incident at the Brackenfell High School last year, and footage of a white person “beating up” an EFF member, Mr Malema questioned why that (white) person had not been located and taken to “an isolated space and attend to the guy properly”, followed by an exhortation to the members that “You must never be scared to kill, a revolution demands that at some point there must be killing, because the killing is part of a revolutionary act”.

2. “Why did Mandela take up a gun, he was the first soldier of uMkhonto we Sizwe to distribute roses? He took up a gun because the revolution had reached up a point where there is no longer an alternative but to kill.”

3. “Anything that stands in the way of the revolution must be eliminated.”

4. “Revolutionaries when confronted by that situation will not think twice.”

5. “The EFF must be known that it is not a playground for racists, that any racists that plays next to the EFF and threatens and beat up the membership and the leadership of the EFF, that is the application to meet your maker with immediate effect.”

6. “Violence can only be ended with violence not any other necessary means.”

7. “This, it’s a war between white supremacy and black consciousness, you must know the two will never meet. We are in a permanent war with white supremacists.”

The offending banners and posters reportedly read “Honeymoon is over for white people in South Africa” and “A revolutionary must become a cold killing machine motivated by pure hate.”

The SAHRC said certain parts of Malema’s speech and some of the banners at the event “individually and collectively, constitute incitement of violence, hate speech and possibly other transgressions of the Promotion of Equality and Prevention of Unfair Discrimination Act, 4 of 2000 (“the PEPUDA”).”

The Commission informed the EFF leader that he has 10 days to retract and apologise for the prima facie unlawful statements, on 8 November.

It further asked him and the EFF to desist from further promotion of hatred and violence and said it would approach the Equality Court for an interdict in the interim.

“The wrong guy: why Paul O’Sullivan won't back down” – “One of his [Paul’s] students in the late 1990s was a reservist called Cyril Ramaphosa” – Part 1

https://www.timeslive.co.za/sunday-times/news/2018-03-31-the-wrong-guy-why-paul-osullivan-wont-back-down/

01 April 2018 - 00:00

Paul O’Sullivan is staring down the police, yet again. He spoke to us about how to clean up the justice system — and how to e-mail your wannabe assassin

This is the man who took on Jackie Selebi [Was he a scapegoat? >>17694345, >>17694348, >>17694353, >>17694360] and won. He took on the notorious Czech gangster Radovan Krejcir. He's not a diplomat.

"I just sent an e-mail to a person this morning," he says. "And it's a tease, really. I said: 'I know who you are, I know where you are, I know what you're planning to do. But I'm going to be quicker than you. I'm coming to kill you!'

"Now that might sound terrible, to send an e-mail like that. But this is the game I have to play. The person has set up an anonymous e-mail address to do the things he's doing. So we don't even know who it is - whether it's a man, or a woman, or a Greek or a Chinese or a Yugoslavian. Actually, we do. It's a Serbian.

"So I sent an e-mail like this, and this guy thinks: 'F**k this, I'm heading to the airport.' Gone!"

The Serbian beef is not new, says the Irishman-turned-South African. "We had three Serbs come here the year before last to kill me. We found out who they were, got the hotel they were staying in. I arranged for somebody to go there at 3am and stand in front of them while they packed their bags and got the next flight out."

O'Sullivan has been accused of being a vigilante. He also has an abrupt, bombastic style which is not everybody's cup of tea. He claims he reserves his aggression for criminals, whom he is forced to threaten in self-defence - because the justice system is so captured, so rife with crooks, that it offers him no protection.

O'Sullivan grew up in a very poor family in rural Ireland. He made a mint in property in London in the 1980s, before moving to South Africa in 1990.

The journalist Marianne Thamm spent a long time with O'Sullivan to research her book about his exploits, To Catch A Cop (Jacana, 2014). But even she could extract few revelations about his pre-South African life. His father was a stern man - a former colonial policeman, stationed in Palestine and Malaya, who told his son: "If a country is worth living in, it is worth fighting for." That stayed with him.

O'Sullivan ran away from home at age 14, travelled to the UK, and joined the army. He trained as an engineer, and spent six years working for the British government in counter-espionage and counterterrorism. He does not discuss what that involved. But he probably wasn't a stationery clerk.

Later, he saved some cash during a stint with IBM, and invested in property during the mid-1980s housing boom. He nearly got caught up in a tempting tax dodge by a crooked property speculator, who then threatened him for pulling out of the deal. Jack Slipper, a renowned former Scotland Yard investigator, was an old friend of O'Sullivan's father; he intervened to drive off the conman.

“The wrong guy: why Paul O’Sullivan won't back down” – “One of his [Paul’s] students in the late 1990s was a reservist called Cyril Ramaphosa” – Part 2

https://www.timeslive.co.za/sunday-times/news/2018-03-31-the-wrong-guy-why-paul-osullivan-wont-back-down/

01 April 2018 - 00:00

O'Sullivan's move to South Africa happened in stages. He visited Johannesburg to buy property in 1986, and began spending summers here with his wife and children.

The release of Nelson Mandela in 1990 swayed him, and he applied for permanent residence that year, as a person of independent means. "I brought in a few million pounds and started getting involved in business."But soon his work took a public turn: he became a police reservist, and in 1996 began training police officers and reservists on the Bill of Rights in the new constitution. One of his students in the late 1990s was a reservist called Cyril Ramaphosa, then a rising tycoon with an interest in community policing. Ramaphosa topped the class.

So he set up a war room in his Bedfordview home and burrowed deep into the Selebi network, feeding his information to the Scorpions, then the elite crime-fighting agency. The Scorpions distrusted him - almost everybody in power did, not least President Thabo Mbeki, who considered him a British spy - but the sources and statements that O'Sullivan supplied were consistently credible. His work stood up in court.

Long story short: Selebi fell. Then Krejcir fell. Another of O'Sullivan's adversaries, the former police commissioner Khomotso Phahlane, now facing charges of corruption, may or may not fall.

One of the ”high profile” investigations that the DSO [the Scorpions] was working on was a corruption case against Zuma. The other was a corruption case against police National Commissioner Jackie Selebi.

When he read the final version in June/July he became angry and thought that ”if there was a time that Mr McCarthy was going to leave the DSO, it was going to be that time”

It had clearly been produced by someone who had contact with ”old apartheid structures of intelligence”, he said, and not a single member of the DSO had the capacity to produce it

“Pots and kettles – and Paul O’Sullivan” – Part 1

https://www.biznews.com/global-citizen/2022/11/03/pots-kettles-paul-osullivan

3rd November 2022

If we could mine ironies and sell them on the global market, we’d save our economy. We’ve just hit a particularly rich seam with Zuptoid and former spy chief, Arthur Fraser, whom Paul O’Sullivan paints below as “Public Enemy Number One”. O’Sullivan suggests that along with Cyril Ramaphosa’s presidential security detail chief, General Walther Rhoode, Fraser is more crooked than a bent nail and should also be behind bars. One of the more ironic aspects of what would otherwise be an excellent reality TV series called, Who’s the Biggest Liar? are these questions – prepared in time-honoured journalistic fashion by a member of that otherwise fantasy news outfit known as Independent Newspapers and all valid – posed to our very own Crusader for Justice, Paul O’Sullivan. Forget the motivation for going after O’Sullivan for the moment (or Independent’s historic links to the Zuptoids, embedded or not), the questions are valuable for the responses they provide. Which makes this a worthwhile read. You decide who is the biggest liar. For those whom history judges correct, a slew of designer TV couches awaits (which may or may not be stuffed with cash). – Chris Bateman

Email chain from Paul O’Sullivan

Good afternoon Tshwarelo.

Your enquiry of even date refers.

Since Mr Fraser has tried to fraudulently implicate me, I have copied the head of the DPCI, so that what I say to you, is ON THE RECORD with the DPCI.

The only reference I saw in the hearsay letter of Mr Fraser, is the following:

5.24. Mr O’Sullivan, who is a close associate of both the President and Mr. Chauke, is said to have used his private investigation company to assist in the tracing of the persons alleged to have broken into the President’s residence.

I note that Mr Fraser uses the expression “…, is said to have used …”. He does not state who said this, but merely repeats it as if it is a fact. This is the case with 80% to 90% of what he says in this letter and in the farcical docket he has opened.

The facts are:

1. The very first I knew of the so-called Phala Phala incident was earlier this year, when it surfaced in the media. I was able to establish that it surfaced in the media because Arthur Fraser caused it to appear in the media. At the time the incident appeared in the media, I had absolutely no prior knowledge of the incident or the allegations of Fraser.

2. For the avoidance of doubt, I was NOT involved in tracing or finding anybody, or bringing them into the custody of the president’s security detail, none of whom I have ever met in my life.

3. I have never been contacted by the DPCI about this matter.

4. When it appeared in the media, I was somewhat taken aback so I did carry out a preliminary investigation. My findings were quite shocking and are set out below:

• Ninety percent of what Fraser alleges is pure hearsay, without a shred of prima facie evidence, although it seems that some of it may have underlying facts, for example a house break-in, not a robbery as widely reported in the media, did take place.

• The head of the Presidential Security Detail, Major General Walther Rhoode, had a very dark history, involving crimes such as racketeering and corruption.

• It could not be established how Rhoode got into the position of Major General in the police, when it seems he should have ended up in a criminal trial for his alleged criminal activity in the past.

• Up until early 2020, Rhode was swamped in debt and was not able to make ends meet.

• By 2021, all of Rhoode’s debts had miraculously vanished, indicating a sudden large income stream form somewhere.

• The ONLY video tape of the house break-in that took place at Phala Phala, was removed by Rhoode, or persons reporting to Rhoode and handed to Arthur Fraser.

• Arthur Fraser not only published his version of events, through a select group of journalists, but he also supplied them with a copy of the video footage he had handed to the police.

• Some of the photographs used by Fraser, ostensibly to point out motor vehicles allegedly bought with the proceeds of the alleged crime at Phala Phala, pre-date the actual incident, thereby making it impossible for them to have been purchased with proceeds of a crime that took place in February 2020 at Phala Phala.

https://www.biznews.com/global-citizen/2022/11/03/pots-kettles-paul-osullivan

3rd November 2022

5. The result was that almost all of the allegations made by Fraser are impossible to prove or disprove, because they are based on speculative hearsay and not fact.

6. It is very easy, especially for a person such as Fraser, to take a long thin line of truth and wrap it up with fat lies in the hope that the casual observer will believe the whole thing, when in fact it is a tailor-made pack of lies, with a sprinkling of the truth to give it an air of authenticity.

7. I am left realising that at least 80% to 90% of what Fraser alleges is an intentional figment of his imagination, conceived after realising his days as a free man are numbered and he needs to create something that can be used to either cause a change of presidency. He can then obtain some sort of get-out-of-jail-free card from an incoming Zuma loyalist, or improve his bargaining position with the current president to be let off the hook for his crimes of theft and fraud that have taken place over many years, which started with the theft of the standby generator, supplied at taxpayer expense for the commission of enquiry into the Scorpions; which generator was subsequently seen installed at Fraser’s private house.

8. I wonder what other rabbits this magician will pull out of the hat, to inflict upon a gullible public.

If an investigation is needed now, it should be into the following, at least:

A. How much money Fraser has stolen from the people of South Africa, some of which was stolen through his shadowy Principal Agent Network, which still seems to be alive and well.

B. Why Fraser has NEVER been brought to justice for his crime against the State.

C. How many people were paid with the stolen cash to run a third force type of parallel intelligence structure, that acted off the radar to destabilise the country for Zuma and his accomplices.

D. How Walther Rhoode was not put on trial for his prior crimes, which miraculously vanished at the hands of crooked Zuma appointees Nomgcobo Jiba and Lawrence Mrwebi.

E. How Rhoode ended up as a major general in the police and ‘protecting’ the president.

F. How Rhoode managed to suddenly pay off all his debts and where the cash came from.

G. Whether Rhoode was a ‘sleeper’ planted there by Fraser to be ‘woken’ when the timing was right.

H. How Fraser came into possession of the video of the break-in at Phala Phala.

I. How many other ‘sleepers’ are still on the payroll of Fraser’s third force intelligence network, who they are, where they are and when they will be ‘woken’.

J. Why the state (DPCI) has committed valuable resources investigating the hearsay of this criminal Arthur Fraser, when substantial priority crimes are being committed on a daily basis, with ample prima facie evidence, (as opposed to hearsay evidence) yet valuable resources are being used to settle the score of a low-life criminal like Fraser.

Put simply, it’s time the media started focusing on the real criminal here and the agenda being run by them. People like Fraser and Rhoode belong in prison and it’s time they were exposed for what they are.

Best wishes,

Paul O’Sullivan CFE

“Pots and kettles – and Paul O’Sullivan” – Part 3

https://www.biznews.com/global-citizen/2022/11/03/pots-kettles-paul-osullivan

3rd November 2022

Good Morning, Mr O’Sullivan

My name is Tshwarelo Hunter Mogakane, from Independent Media. I’m following up on a document submitted to the Section 89 independent panel. The document, said to have been written by Arthur Fraser, names you as one of the people who helped President Cyril Ramaphosa’s security detail trace and apprehend suspects in the Phala Phala farm burglary between 2020 and 2021. It is common cause that you are somebody renowned for exposing corruption, but in this instance, you are accused of illegally playing a role in what has been termed an attempt to cover-up the burglary, which has far-reaching implications as you would have seen in parliament and other platforms.

I therefore request that you respond to the following questions in order to assist in the story that I’m writing.

1. Did you or did you not assist the president’s security detail to trace suspects in the Phala Phala burglary?

2. Did you use your investigating capacity to bring the suspects into the custody of the president’s security detail?

3. Have you been approached by the Hawks in order to assist them with their investigation into the Phala Phala matter, especially since you are named in one of the documents Fraser handed to the Hawks?

4. As somebody who is well known for investigating fraud, money laundering and other financial crimes, have you ever attempted to investigate the veracity of the claims made by Fraser about money laundering that took place at Phala Phala? If not, why not?

Your time is highly appreciated. Please let me know what time you will be able to respond to the questions.

Below is a link to the document you requested.

Many thanks, Tshwarelo Hunter Mogakane

Excerpts from the Document submitted to the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation from Arthur Fraser dated June 23, 2022 – Part 1

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pOZ877lTHRON2JAz2pzvn1nt652YNUaF/view

5.1. In response to a question from the DPCI investigators on where the money comes from, I advised that one of President Ramaphosa’s closest Advisors, Mr. Bejani Chauke (‘Mr. Chauke’), was ostensibly instrumental in illegally bringing large sums of US $ into South Africa for both he and the President after returning from trips he undertook on behalf of President Ramaphosa to various countries, interalia, including, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Egypt, Morocco and Equatorial Guinea.

5.15. Approximately 3 weeks ago, after charges were laid against the President, Mr. Chauke is said have moved US$ 20 million in cash to a South African citizen, Mr. Zahir Vallie with ID Number …. for safekeeping for himself and the President.

5.16. Mr Zahir Vallie trades in property in Cape Town, called Z Prop. Mr Zahir Vallie’s property portfolio is estimated to be worth approximately R800 million. He is known to bring large amounts of foreign currency into South Africa from the Middle East without declarations, through Cape Town International airport. Information received indicates that all his properties bought are cash purchases. It is well known that his properties are running at a considerable financial loss with low returns, clearly a sign of significant money laundering.

5.18. Mr. Chauke was further also instrumental in assisting the President and Major General Rhoode with the investigations into the theft at Phala Phala. In this regard, the following persons rendered, inter alia, assistance in the investigation to the President, Mr. Chauke and Major General Rhoode into the theft at Phala Phala:

5.18.1. Constable Rikhotso, a member of the Presidential Protection Services.

5.18.2. Constable Jabu Mahlangu, a member of the Presidential Protection Services.

5.18.3. Colonel Smanga Simelane (‘Colonel Simelane’) of the South African Police Services (‘SAPS’) Crime Intelligence. [“Top cop facing charges after allegedly threatening government official”, https://www.news24.com/News24/top-cop-facing-charges-after-allegedly-threatening-government-official-20190403]

5.18.4. Dr Anton Deon De Swardt (‘Dr De Swardt’), a farmer and a managing partner at De Swardt Myambo Hlahla Attorneys…

5.18.5. Deputy Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation, Mr. David Mahlobo (‘Deputy Minister Mahlobo’) [“State security minister David Mahlobo reportedly linked to rhino poaching syndicate [video]” 2016, https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/state-security-minister-david-mahlobo-reportedly-linked-to-rhino-poaching-syndicate-video/, https://youtu.be/JMguWY99q6s]

5.18.6. Deputy Minister in the Presidency, Mr. Zizi Kodwa (‘Deputy Minister Kodwa’) [“Zizi Kodwa’s luxury lifestyle EXPOSED by damning state capture evidence”, https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/zizi-kodwa-payments-what-for-luxury-accommodation-who-are-eoh-state-capture/]

5.18.7. Mr. Sean McCarthy of the Sean McCarthy Group (‘SMG’), (‘Mr. McCarthy’).

5.18.8. Mr. Karl Lars Magnusson (‘Mr Magnusson’)…

5.18.9. Paul O’Sullivan (‘Mr O’Sullivan)

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pOZ877lTHRON2JAz2pzvn1nt652YNUaF/view

5.22. Deputy Minister Mahlobo, a former Minister of State Security, used his network of contacts to assist in the tracing of the persons alleged to have broken into the President’s residence.

5.23. Deputy Minister Kodwa accompanied Major General Rhoode on numerous trips to Namibia in engaging with the Namibian President and Namibian law enforcement authorities on the matter.

5.24. Mr O’Sullivan, who is a close associate of both the President and Mr. Chauke, is said to have used his private investigation company to assist in the tracing of the persons alleged to have broken into the President’s residence.

5.25. Mr McCarthy is said to have assisted the President and Mr. Chauke in facilitating converting large sums of US$ into Rands. Mr McCarthy is also said to have most of his capital kept offshore in Mauritius…

5.26. Mr Magnusson, a neighbour to President Ramaphosa in Cape Town, and who is presently believed to be illegally in South Africa, is said to have not only assisted in facilitating converting large sums of US$ into Rands, but also assisting in pinging of persons alleged to have broken into the President’s residence and actively participated in their subsequent torture.

5.31. Importantly, the Namibian Crime Intelligence Report (notably p.5) corroborates what I had been told by another source, as well as corroborated and provided further information to the evidence submitted together with his affidavit filed at the Rosebank police station on 1 June 2022, notably:

5.31.2 The report details that the domestic worker, employed at Phala Phala farm had assisted Mr. Imanuwela David and his co-conspirators in locating the US$ concealed in the furniture at Phala Phala farm.

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pOZ877lTHRON2JAz2pzvn1nt652YNUaF/view

5.38. Page 2 of the Namibian Police Intelligence Report references the acting CEO of Fishcore, Mr. Paulus Ngalangi as having been arrested by the Namibian authorities in June 2020 for assisting Mr. Imanuwela David to illegally cross from South Africa into Namibia on 13 June 2020…

5.40. I subsequently learned that Mr Imanuwela David and Mr Paulus Ngalangi are related and further that both Mr. Imanuwela David and Mr Paulus Ngalangi are related to Mr. James Hatuikulipi who is one of the accused in the infamous ‘Fishrot’ corruption case pending in the Namibian High Court. The Namibian Home Affairs department and the Namibian police can confirm these relations.

5.41. Mr. James Hatuikulipi is also closely linked to the President of Namibia. Information available is that one of the suspects in the matter, Mr. Maren De Klerk, an attorney, implicates some of the accused, along with the President of Namibia.

5.42. It is believed that Mr. Imanuwela David was laundering money into Namibia to cover the legal costs of some of the accused in the pending ‘Fishrot’ case.

5.44. At page 6, par 2 of the Namibian Police’s Crime Intelligence Report, I highlighted that according to the report, Major General Rhoode contacted the Namibian Police Special Branch, Crime Intelligence to set up a meeting in “No man’s land” at Ariamsvlei border post.

5.45. During the meeting at “No man’s land”, Major General Rhoode confirmed to his Namibian counterpart that “something” took place at President Ramaphosa’s Phala Phala farm and that Mr. Imanuwela David was the mastermind behind the burglary.

5.47. the report further also noted that discussions were allegedly ongoing between the Presidents of South Africa and Namibia.

5.55. In this fictitious “drug smuggling” claim, Major General Rhoode’s informal investigation then provided the details of some of the individuals involved in the Phala Phala theft to the SAPS Detective services to track the individuals concerned.

5.56. As a result an enquiry was opened into fictitious drug smuggling when in fact the investigation related to a crime committed at President Ramaphosa’s Phala Phala farm.

5.63. I further advised of an individual who facilitated the exchange of US$ at the Chinese pawnshop, who is being identified.

5.67. The certified court record depicting the charges on which Mr Imanuwela David has since pleaded guilty on and in respect of which he had paid a fine ought to be obtained.

Published Sep 1, 2022

Rustenburg - One of the Namibians linked to the theft of money at President Cyril Ramaphosa's Phala Phala farm in Limpopo, appeared in the Cape Town Regional Court on Thursday.

Urbanus Shaumbwako, 37, is facing charges of unlawful possession of firearms and reckless driving.

He was arrested at a roadblock in October 2020, after he was found in possession of 12 automatic firearms.

National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson in the Western Cape, Eric Ntabazalila, told journalists outside the court that Shaumbwako’s case had nothing to do with the Phala Phala scandal. He said Shaumbwako was only facing a firearms charge.

“As things stand, us as the NPA in the Western Cape we do not know anything about Phala Phala. We have got no case on Phala Phala in this case.

“The accused before this court is a 37-year-old Namibian nationals; he is charged with 12 counts of possession of illegal firearms (automatic firearm), which he was arrested for on Blaauwberg Road on 18 October 2020… nothing on Phala Phala only those,” he said.

Shaumbwako was supposed to make a plea statement in court, but his lawyer, Reon Heckrath, told the court that he could not proceed with the pleas because of new developments, television news channel Newzroom Afrika reported.

According to the broadcaster, Heckrath said the investigating officer and a member of the Hawks took his client out of his cell at Pollsmoor Prison in Cape Town in June this year and questioned him without the lawyer present.

Heckrath told the court that the investigating officer and the Hawks officer asked Shaumbwako to go through Arthur Fraser's affidavit and point out any mistakes Fraser might have made, and to correct them.

He asked that Shaumbwako be placed in protective custody in case he was again secretly removed by the police.

The lawyer also told the court that Imanuwela David, also named by Fraser as an alleged Phala-Phala robber, was allegedly shot in Johannesburg last week.

David is believed to be the mastermind behind the Phala Phala farm theft.

Ntabazalila said Heckrath would have to make a formal application to the Department of Correctional Services for his client to be moved into protective custody.

“Making sense of ANC MP’s threat of assassination to The Star [INL] editor [Sifiso Mahlangu], should he not leave presidential adviser Chauke alone”

https://www.iol.co.za/the-star/opinion-analysis/making-sense-of-anc-mps-threat-of-assassination-to-the-star-editor-should-he-not-leave-presidential-adviser-chauke-alone-d42d4a00-9d03-4ef6-a468-5b8642cc56e1

I understand that INL published their story after the Holomisa submission, which went around social media platforms like wildfire. Ordinarily, before the media publishes such claims, they would extend an invitation and opportunity to those implicated to give their version. I understand that INL did precisely that since its editor claims they solicited Chauke’s account, which he declined. However, Chauke later wrote a lengthy piece addressed to the editor in which he disowned some of the information in the Holomisa submission.

Perhaps important to note is that when INL published this following the Holomiisa submission, presidential political adviser Bejane Chauke did not threaten the media outlet with any legal action; instead, he wrote a response refuting some of the allegations contained in the Holomisa submission.

The idea of Chauke opting to respond to INL instead of following a legal channel of bringing a libel case against the media outfit baffled me when I considered his response.

According to the cited WhatsApp as published by INL, Mamabolo allegedly says, “Aowaa mon (No man) Mo tologele nyana (leave him alone).“

When Mahlangu says he has no idea what Mamabolo is referring to, he allegedly says, “Leave him alone abit. You are my frnd and I don’t want Pple to Assassinate you. Bcos it can happen anytime from now” (sic).

Reading MP Boy Mamabolo’s whatsApp messages to Editor Mahlangu, which sends chills down one’s spine, one is compelled to ask precisely who, according to Mamabolo, will instruct the assassination.

Perhaps where Mamabolo needs to catch up is his misreading of the prevalence of a Chauke in our South African discourse, particularly this season. Chauke’s presence in our discourse in this season comes at least three-fold. First, he is the known political adviser to the ANC and SA president, making him the most trusted lieutenant of Ramaphosa. He is cited and implicated in (the affidavit) Arthur Fraser opened at the Rosebank police station in June. He is also in the subsequent affidavit of Fraser and is explicitly mentioned and implicated for being directly linked to the stash of monies found at Phala Phala and for having brought large amounts of foreign currency from various trips he undertook on behalf of his principal in the subsequent affidavit that Fraser submitted.

The Holomisa submission to the Parliament-initiated Section 89 inquiry panel draws from the second affidavit of Fraser. Third, and perhaps more importantly for ANC and SA citizens, the same man accused of the earlier mentioned crimes is on an ANC slate to be a contestant for a top six position in the 55th Conference, which starts on December 16.

The SACP has hit back at former Spy Boss Arthur Fraser for opening a criminal case against President Cyril Ramaphosa. SACP General Secretary Dr Blade Nzimande says Arthur Fraser is using privileged state information for his own factional and devious purposes. The Communists have come out to defend Ramaphosa saying Arthur Fraser only wants to plunge the ANC into crisis and out of power. Samkele Maseko filed this report.

“Analysis on Zondo's appointment as Chief Justice : Thabo Masombuka” - https://youtu.be/2h3HnO7WIYA

“Chief justice objection: Arthur Fraser says Zondo ‘lacks integrity’”

https://www.citizen.co.za/news/south-africa/courts/chief-justice-arthur-fraser-letter-raymond-zondo/

20 Oct 2021

The former spy boss said Zondo is unfit to be the face and embodiment of the values enshrined in the Constitution of South Africa.

Arthur Fraser, the former head of correctional services and the former chief of spies, officially objected to Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo’s bid for the position of Chief Justice.

In a letter dated Friday, 15 October, the deadline for the public to raise objections, Fraser said Zondo lacked the requisite judicial independence which the position of chief justice would demand.

He also believed Zondo lacks the integrity and fairness required for the position, as well as the necessary loyalty to the oath of office taken by judicial officers when they are appointed.

Arthur Fraser’s letter

Zondo ‘lacks impartiality and integrity’

In the letter addressed to the panel chaired by former Judge of the International Court of Justice, Navi Pillay, Fraser said the reason for his objection was shaped by Zondo’s conduct during the state capture commission.

While investigating former President Jacob Zuma’s ties to the Gupta family, Zondo linked Fraser to the abuse of secret service funds. However, Fraser said he was never given an opportunity to clear his name.

He said people who had been implicated in less serious crimes were given an opportunity to testify.

“The fact that in three and a half years, Deputy Chief Justice Zondo did not even find a day for me to testify, demonstrates his lack of impartiality”, Fraser wrote.

Therefore, Fraser argues that Zondo “is unfit to be the face and embodiment of the values enshrined in the Constitution of South Africa”.

Protecting culprits

Fraser believes Zondo was only playing to the tune of the political elite to “endear himself”, in the hopes of being the next Chief Justice.

“I have reason to believe that Deputy Chief Justice Zondo did this in order to endear himself with the political class so that he can secure the position of Chief Justice for which he is now nominated,” Fraser added.

Moreover, he believes Zondo did this on purpose in an attempt to protect the individuals Fraser may “have exposed as the real culprits” in state capture.

Fraser adds: “I further have reason to believe that his deliberate conduct sought to protect the real origins of the idea of the commission as a foreign-sponsored concept”.

Public comment

The period for public comment closed on Friday, 15 October 2021 and the shortlisting panel will be scrutinising some 564 submissions received.

In a statement on Tuesday, Pillay expressed the panel’s appreciation for public participation in this process, while the Presidency said submissions “vary greatly in substance and volume.”

Going forward, each nominee will be given an opportunity to comment on the public submissions made in respect of his or her nomination.

The panel will then commence with the “assessment and evaluation of each candidature in order to compile a shortlist of three to five candidates for submission to, and further consideration by the President”.

Chief Justice nominations

The eight nominees for the position of Chief Justice are as follows:

• Judge President John Hlophe,

• Justice Mbuyiseli Madlanga,

• Justice Mandisa Maya,

• Dr Wallace Amos Mgoqi,

• Adv. Busisiwe Mkhwebane,

• Judge President Dunstan Mlambo,

• Adv. Alan Nelson,

• Deputy Chief Justice Raymond Zondo.

The panel anticipates it will submit its shortlist of three to five names to the President by no later than 29 October.

“‘Black people can NEVER be racist’, Vishoek High learners told”

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/black-people-can-never-be-racist-vishoek-high-learners-told/

08-11-2022 14:20

Vishoek High pupils were left distressed by some of the claims made in a ‘diversity training course’ last week.

Mystery still surrounds the now-infamous ‘diversity course’ that was delivered to students at Vishoek High last week. After a single session, the lesson was ultimately dropped by school officials – due to numerous allegations of ‘bullying and exclusion’.

However, a few bombshells have since come to light…

VISHOEK HIGH DIVERSITY COURSE: WHAT WAS IT THAT TRAUMATISED CHILDREN?

Some parents report that their children ‘were left traumatised’ by the session, which allegedly focused on skin colour and racial issues. The diversity course has been suspended entirely, but what content actually featured in these lesson plans?

A number of accounts have been made public in the past week or so, but specific details were lacking. The diversity trainer herself, however, has since broken her silence. Asanda Ngoasheng, who led the course, explained what exactly featured in her controversial presentation.

• A poem that addressed racism and ‘attacked Christianity’ caused a wave of outrage. The religion was also criticised for alleged ‘homophobia’.

• It is said that homophobic bullying was a major issue at the school, hence why the poem was chosen.

• Racism in South Africa and ‘the legacy of apartheid’ were also discussed, in a forthright manner.

• Some accuse the teacher of ‘demonising’ students based on their skin colour, likening the exchanges to ‘bullying’.

• Teachers and all other adults were excluded from the session, and kids were forbidden from recording the content.

• A clutch of learners were also forbidden from walking out of the hall, after becoming distressed by the content.

WATCH: DIVERSITY TRAINER SAYS ‘BLACK PEOPLE CAN NEVER BE RACIST’

A video clip of the session has since been leaked online. Ngoasheng can be heard telling the pupils that black people ‘can never be racist’ towards white people, because they don’t have a history of oppression. Students can be heard audibly gasping, and some immediately ask to leave.

“[Black people] can be nasty and cruel, but they cannot be racist towards white people. When a black person is the perpetrator, it is never considered racism. We cannot call it that. Racism requires power. There’d need to be 400 years of oppression first.” | Asanda Ngoasheng www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1465692080574894

“US envoy named SA as among countries where ISIS financial networks operate” [Oct 6, 2022] - https://youtu.be/KGdxBtqYc1I

“US identifies ISIS members in DURBAN – two weeks after Sandton terror alert”

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/us-identifies-isis-members-durban-sandton-terror-alert-braking-8-november-2022/

08-11-2022 09:15

The US Treasury has designated four members of an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) cell operating in Durban.

The US Treasury has designated four members of an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) cell operating in Durban who have provided technical, financial, or material support to the terrorist group.

In a lengthy statement on Monday, Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) said it has also designated eight companies controlled or directed by the individuals in the cell.

Recent United Nations Security Council reports show that ISIS is continuing its expansion across the African continent.

“Treasury is targeting key individuals in ISIS’s network in South Africa, as well as their business assets, who have played pivotal roles in enabling terrorism and other criminal activities in the region,” said Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Brian E. Nelson.

“The United States, as part of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS, will continue to partner with South Africa to deny ISIS the ability to exploit the country’s economy to raise and move funds to support the growth of ISIS affiliates and networks.”

The Treasury is designating these individuals and entities pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13224, as amended, which targets terrorist groups, their supporters, and associated assets.

According to the report, the parties involved include the cell leader Farhad Hoomer, and brothers Nufael Akbar and Yunus Akbar, who have, according to the US, collaborated with Hoomer, who has shown intent to attack the US and its allies.

SANDTON TERROR ALERT IN LATE OCTOBER

Nufael Akbar is a central commanding figure in the Durban-based ISIS cell while Yunus Akbar functions as an enforcer and logistical coordinator for the ISIS cell, the statement added.

Meanwhile, the action also targeted two other Hoomer associates, Mohamad Akbar and Umar Akbar, who were arrested in 2018 by South African authorities – along with Hoomer – for their involvement in a plan to deploy improvised incendiary devices near a mosque and commercial retail buildings.

Nufael Akbar, Yunus Mohamad Akbar, Mohamad Akbar, and Umar Akbar are being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224, as amended, for having materially assisted, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services to or in support of, ISIS.

OFAC is also designating four South Africa-based companies in connection with Nufael Akbar and Yunus Mohamad Akbar.

MA Gold Traders (PTY) LTD is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13224, as amended, for being owned, controlled, or directed by Nufael Akbar. Bailey Holdings (PTY) LTD and Flexoseal Waterproofing Solutions (PTY) LTD are being designated, pursuant to E.O. 13224, as amended, for being owned, controlled, or directed by Yunus Mohamad Akbar. HJ Bannister Construction CC is being designated, pursuant to E.O. 13224, as amended, for being jointly owned, controlled, or directed by Nufael Akbar and Yunus Mohamad Akbar.

In late October, the US embassy warned that a terrorist attack might happen in Sandton.

The alert was subsequently also released by the United Kingdom, Canadian, French, German and Australian missions who issued similar warnings to their citizens.

The move created an unfortunate situation with the South African government unhappy they were not the ones to issue the warning and were not consulted.

President Cyril Ramaphosa called the alert “unfortunate”, noting that there was not enough evidence pointing to an actual threat and alerting citizens caused panic.

This has led to sources within the security sector suggesting there could be diplomatic tensions between the two countries.

“The most feared spy in Mzansi ? Who is Arthur Fraser, catch all the details on our Sunday Profile” – Part 1

https://za.opera.news/za/en/others/3ddfc4ef69a02b61502bb2fd73c0251b

Former head of the State Security Agency, Arthur Fraser, who generally likes to stay in the background, became well-known to most South Africans, after it emerged last year that he had signed off on a decision to grant former president Jacob Zuma medical parole. Zuma was jailed in July 2021 after he was given a 15-month sentence for defying a Constitutional Court order to appear before the State Capture Inquiry and answer non-incriminating questions.

Fraser released Zuma on medical parole just two months into that sentence after being hospitalised for an undisclosed medical condition. At the beginning of June of this year, Fraser, was back in the limelight after he laid a criminal case against President Cyril Ramaphosa at the Rosebank police station, related to the alleged theft of "in excess of four million US dollars" from Ramaphosa's Phala Phala farm in Limpopo in 2020.

Fraser alleged Ramaphosa "concealed the crime" and that the suspects had been kidnapped and interrogated. Fraser alleged that Presidential Protection Unit head Major-General Wally Rhoode and members of crime intelligence were involved in the cover-up.

According to the Correctional Services website, Arthur Fraser was actively involved in student politics and joined the ANC underground structures early in his life. Upon return to South Africa, Fraser joined the newly-formed National Intelligence Agency (NIA), where he was seconded to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) as an investigator. Fraser is no stranger to controversy.

In 2007, when the Browse Mole report was leaked, then-president Thabo Mbeki asked Fraser to investigate. The report was purported to be an intelligence memorandum claiming a bid for the presidency by Jacob Zuma was supported by various African leaders. The now-defunct Huffington Post wrote that Fraser had the NIA tap the phones of several high-ranking officials mentioned in the Browse Mole report [ >>17694353 ], including Leonard McCarthy, who headed up the Scorpions [ >>17694364, >>17694366, >>17694370, >>17694374, >>17694376, >>17694382, >>17722751 ].

The conversations which became known as the "spy tapes" [ >>17694331, >>17694335, >>17694338, >>17694345 ] included discussions between McCarthy and former NDPP Bulelani Ngcuka about when the most politically damaging time to charge Zuma would be. Fraser, it seems, decided to leak the recordings to Zuma's legal team, earning him the label, "the spy who saved Zuma". As a result of this, the NPA dropped charges against Zuma in 2009.

Jacques Pauw claims in his book, The President's Keepers that Fraser, while at the NIA, allegedly headed up a parallel intelligence network called the Principal Agent Network programme (PAN). According to Daily Maverick this was set up in 2007, and Fraser was there from its inception. Pauw futher claimed in his book that internal State Security Agency auditors found that PAN used as much as R1 billion of taxpayers' money in just three years.

In 2016, the State security agency announced Fraser was taking up the role of Director-General and Accounting Officer at the agency, after then-president Jacob Zuma made the appointment. The SSA statement at the time said that Fraser was no stranger to the intelligence world after he had "served in various operational capacities that culminated in his appointment as the DDG:

Operations in the former National Intelligence Agency (NIA)." Fraser previously served as a DDG in the Department of Home Affairs responsible for Immigration Services. In 2018, after Cyril Ramaphosa became president, he moved Fraser to Correctional Services after Fraser was implicated in several allegations of malfeasance at the SSA.

“The most feared spy in Mzansi ? Who is Arthur Fraser, catch all the details on our Sunday Profile” – Part 2

https://za.opera.news/za/en/others/3ddfc4ef69a02b61502bb2fd73c0251b

A high-level panel investigation into the SSA under Fraser found that the PAN was involved in "serious criminal behaviour… under the guise of conducting covert work and that this behaviour may have involved theft, forgery and uttering, fraud, corruption and even bordered on organised crime".

The chairperson of the high-level panel, Dr Sydney Mufamadi, testified at the Zondo Commission that, although the concept of a PAN was not unusual, the way it was structured and operated under Fraser and Graham Engel "evolved into a methodology designed to avoid or bypass the procedural requirements for recruitment of staff, disbursement of funds and procurement".

Various allegations of criminality involving the running of PAN were made to Mufamadi's panel. This included the signing of fraudulent contracts, payments to people without valid contracts, the employment of family members and missing funds and assets. Mufamadi said that even though PAN was shut down in 2011, there had been no formal action or consequences for the people who ran it. In 2021, Fraser again courted controversy, when he gave Zuma medical parole.

The Gauteng High Court in Pretoria last year ruled that Fraser's decision to release Zuma on medical parole was unlawful. An appeal of this ruling will be heard in the Supreme court of Appeal in August. Earlier this year, Pauw wrote that Fraser had lied on his CV and had never graduated with a BA degree from the University of London.

Wally Rhoode is named in the affidavit that Fraser filed earlier this month. Paragraph 13.29 states: Major-General [Wally] Rhoode and his team, on the instruction of President Ramaphosa, paid Mr Shaumbwako, Mr Muhekeni, Mr Shikongo, Mr David and Mr Afrikaner R150 000 each in cash to conceal the events that took place at Phala Phala on 9 February 2020. Prior to this complaint, Rhoode was no stranger to controversy either.

In 2009, Rhoode resigned as head of security for the 2010 FIFA World Cup under a cloud. At the time, the Mail and Guardian reported his resignation was linked to controversy over the appointment of Africa Strategic Asset Protection to provide services for the Confederations Cup held in June 2009. Rhoode denied this, saying he had resigned to look after his family's construction business.

According to News24, leaked bank statements relating to the CR17 campaign revealed that after Rhoode's appointment as security head, Nala's Intense Protection and Tourism Services (IPTS) was brought on board. The bank statements show IPTS was paid R8.4 million between June 2017 and March 2018 for providing physical security to VIP members of the CR17 campaign. Rhoode was paid just over R1 million between March 2017 and October 2018. In his column, Basson questioned how Ramaphosa had allowed Rhoode to be his closest protector and oversee his entire security establishment as well as keep Fraser on as head of correctional services.

“Julius Malema’s mafia connection: What we know about Adriano Mazzotti” – Part 1

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/opinion/julius-malemas-mafia-connection-what-we-know-about-adriano-mazzotti/

08-07-2018 16:22

Julius Malema’s recent outbursts directed at Jacques Pauw and Pravin Gordhan. Is Malema feeling the heat now that the dots are being joined between him and Adriano Mazzotti?

Economic Freedom Fighter’s (EFF) Commander in Chief, Julius Malema, has entered into a war of words with investigative author, Jacques Pauw, and Public Enterprises Minister, Pravin Gordhan. Where there’s smoke there’s usually fire – why is Malema now fighting anti-corruption forces?

The President’s Keepers author, Jacques Pauw, has opened a can of unsavoury worms surrounding Malema and his association with Adriano Mazzotti. This comes at a time when suspended SA Revenue Service (SARS) commissioner, Tom Moyane, finds himself in the hot seat.

Moyane is accused of gross maladministration and corruption while head of SARS, resulting in a revenue shortfall of R50 billion. These allegations have landed Monyane in front of the Nugent inquiry, established to unpack the former commissioner’s accountability.

‘SUNLIGHT IS A GREAT SANITISER’ – ROBERT NUGENT

Retired judge, Robert Nugent, is chairing the commission tasked with uncovering Moyane’s incompetence. While the subject of this inquiry deals with liability and dereliction of duty with regards to taxes, Malema has become awfully offended by the commission.

Which seems strange considering that the revolutionary leader has always fought against corruption, famously coining the phrase ‘pay back the money’, in reference to former president Jacob Zuma’s improper residential funding.

Why is Malema defending Tom Moyane, while lambasting anti-corruption loyalists Pauw and Gordhan? Could Malema’s outburst be a result of fear surrounding what may be uncovered in the enquiry process?

JULIUS MALEMA AND THE ADRIANO MAZZOTTI CONNECTION

Much has been written about this ignoble association; that of a self-confessed fraudster, smuggler and illicit merchant coupling with a revolutionary leader of the people.

The former, Adriano Sauro Lorenzo Mazzotti, is the director of Carnilinx, a cigarette company not shy of controversy. SARS have previously investigated Carnilinx for illicit dealings and tax evasion. That was before Moyane was at the helm of the operation.

In fact, the dodgy glue which binds Mazzotti, Malema and Moyane together was manufactured under an unethical SARS dispossession. The Nugent commission is threatening to reveal all injustices, and that has some very powerful people very worried.

08-07-2018 16:22

ADRIANO MAZZOTTI, THE EFF’S FIRST FINANCIAL BACKER

In a legal address, obtained by PoliticsWeb, following allegations of illicit activities, Mazzotti’s legal team wrote:

“Mr Mazzotti did make a donation of R200 000 to the EFF prior to its registration. This has always been in the public domain and he has always been transparent about the payment.”

This is in reference to a payment made in 2014 when the EFF needed financial backing to register as a political party. But it isn’t the only transaction rumoured to have taken place between the two unlikely counterparts.

Pauw has alleged, in his open letter to Malema, that the EFF and their leader have benefited from the proceeds of crime. According to the author, there is evidence supporting his claim that R1 million found its way into EFF coffers.

The money, rumoured to be a loan, was made by Carnilinx co-director Kyle Phillips. Pauw is adamant he can verify the claims.

‘THE PROBLEM WITH WHITE SUPREMACY’ – JULIUS MALEMA

This was Malema’s response to Pauw’s accusations. Malema added further to his retort:

“If it is the proceeds of crime, let them open a case. If such a contribution is the proceeds of crime, let it be prosecuted and if found guilty, the EFF will be more than willing to return that money.”

Malema has previously explained that his relationship with Mazzotti stretches back to his days in the African National Congress (ANC) Youth League. When Malema was expelled from the organisation he maintains that Mazzotti was one of a few people who stayed in touch with him.

The EFF commander in chief has been contradictory in describing his relationship with Mazzotti, previously stating:

“Me and him [Mazzotti]… we engage on political issues, national topics, not about his business. If he is messing up, they must lock him up and he must go to jail and rot in jail for a very long time.”

Although in other statements to the media he has indicated that Mazzotti has no profound understanding or knowledge of the EFF, saying:

“Mazzotti doesn’t know anything about the EFF, he reads about it like any other person.”

‘UNSAVOURY CHARACTERS’

Pauw ended his open letter to Malema cautioning him against his intimate dealings with known criminals, saying:

“You must know that Mazzotti mingles with unsavoury characters.

Do you know that apartheid assassin Craig Williamson was one of his business partners?

And that you have been photographed with Mazzotti in the presence of self-confessed killer and gangster Mikey Schultz?”

Questions are being asked of the relationship between Malema and Mazzotti. Is Julius Malema fighting to subjugate the truth, and to what extent have SARS role-players colluded with accused racketeers?

Tensions are high with both sides attempting to discredit the other. In this case, the old adage, ‘the truth will set you free’, may be furthest from reality. In this case, the truth may put powerful people behind bars.

“Julius Malema and Adriano Mazzotti – the dubious connection deepens”

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/julius-malema-adriano-mazzotti-family-home/

03-12-2018 12:25

Malema’s wife and children live in a home owned by Mazzotti.

The relationship between Julius Malema and cigarette manufacturer Adriano Mazzotti has, once again, been thrust into the spotlight.

Malema, political provocateur and leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), has never denied his connection with self-confessed cigarette smuggler, Mazzotti. Then again – how could he? The facts are clear to see and have been widely publicised in recent years.

JULIUS MALEMA AND ADRIANO MAZZOTTI

Mazzotti is the co-director of Carnilinx, a cigarette manufacturing company which has garnered controversy due to its alleged involvement in the illicit tobacco trade. The dubious association stretches back to 2013, when Mazzotti donated R200 000 to the EFF, prior to the party’s registration. The following year, Carnilinx’s other executive director, Kyle Phillips, helped Malema out of tax troubles with a cool R1 million ‘advance’.

Investigative journalist and author of The President’s Keepers, Jacques Pauw, has previously challenged Malema to come clean regarding his relationship with Mazzotti. Citing affidavits, Pauw has shown Mazzotti to be under the watchful eye of South African Revenue Service (SARS) due to alleged fraud and tax evasion.

Malema, who has built a large portion of his political rhetoric on anti-corruption, finds himself in a sticky position. A recent report, published by EWN, has, once again, brought the Malema-Mazzotti connection back under the microscope for further crutiny. This, at a time when the EFF is attempting to buffer a fierce media pushback while defending itself against allegations of corruption stemming from the VBS Mutual Bank saga.

MALEMA’S FAMILY LIVING IN MAZZOTTI’S HOUSE

It’s now been confirmed that Malema’s wife and children live in a home owned by Mazzotti. Pauw revealed further details about the high-security Hyde Park estate, posting a satellite image with the caption:

“Malema lives in self-confessed gangster Adriano Mazzotti’s house in Hyde Park. It’s true. The estate, consisting of four luxurious villas, is at [address withheld]”

EWN further revealed that the house in which Malema’s family lives is valued at R7 million.

Mazzotti argues that although the family lives on the property, they are paying market-related rental prices – in this area of Hyde Park, rentals cost between R35 000 to over R100 000 per month.

Malema, himself, has a permanent residence in Goodwood, Cape Town. The EFF’s Commander in Chief has been mum on the recent revelations.

“Malema’s lawyers demand that Jacques Pauw’s Our Poisoned Land be removed from shelves: NB Publishers media statement”

https://www.biznews.com/briefs/2022/11/15/malema-jacques-pauw-new-book

15th November 2022

Malema’s lawyers demand that Jacques Pauw’s Our Poisoned Land be removed from shelves

“This is the book that Julius Malema does not want you to see,” says author Jacques Pauw.

Pauw’s comment comes in response to demands issued by the Economic Freedom Fighters’ attorneys, insisting that copies of his new book be removed from all bookstores.

NB Publishers received an urgent letter of demand on Monday from Julius Malema, Floyd Shivambu and Mbuyiseni Ndlozi’s attorneys demanding the immediate withdrawal of Our Poisoned Land, published on 11 November 2022 under the Tafelberg imprint of NB Publishers. It’s Pauw’s sequel to the bestselling The President’s Keepers.

The letter also requests that “both Mr Jacques Pauw and NB Publishers unconditionally apologise to Mr Julius Malema, Mr Floyd Shivambu, Mr Ndlozi, and all other members of the Economic Freedom Fighters, for the negligent and mala fide publication of untrue, unverified, and defamatory allegations pertaining to those parties, which publications have been unconditionally withdrawn, and will not be republished, either now or in the future.”

The letter is in response to the shocking allegations unearthed by Pauw, detailing the extent of Julius Malema’s controversial relationship with self-confessed tobacco smuggler Adriano Mazzotti.

“The EFF’s demands are reminiscent of similar attempts, almost exactly five years ago, when then spy boss Arthur Fraser threatened to use intelligence legislation to remove the The President’s Keepers from the shelves”, adds Pauw.

The President’s Keepers remains South Africa’s fastest-selling book ever and has sold over 210 000 copies since its publication in October 2017.

NB Publishers stands by our author and the book. The information in the book was properly sourced and lawfully published and demands for removal and apologies have been rejected.

Our attorneys have responded to the letter received.

Jacques Pauw biography

https://briefly.co.za/95222-jacques-pauw-biography-family-books-scandal-pics-facts.html

February 17, 2021

When you mention Jacques Pauw's name, what comes to most people's mind is the investigative journalist who unveiled the "cancerous cabal" that bankrolled Jacob Zuma's presidency. His recent arrest and publication that wrongly painted a South African restaurant and the police are two other Jacques Pauw latest news.

Jacques Pauw is a famous journalist in the country's media sector. Known for his exceptional investigative skills, he is a two-time winner of CNN's African Journalist of the Year award, among others. After publishing his book, The President's Keepers: Those Keeping Zuma in Power and out of Prison, in 2017, the efforts made to ban it ended up making it a best seller. [Using the same tactic for his new book?]

Jacques has served in various capacities until his retirement. He was a founding member and assistant editor of the anti-apartheid Afrikaans newspaper, Vrye Weekblad. Founder members collectively owned the newspaper, including Max du Preez, who served as an editor. His television career started in 1994, and he specialised in documentaries around the African continent.

Moreover, he worked with the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC) as an executive producer of the Special Assignment, a current affairs programme. As an investigative journalist, Pauw investigated lethal criminal activities in southern Africa's underworld and exposed atrocities committed by governments around the African continent.

Some of his documentaries focused on the War in Darfur, the Rwandan genocide, and the police death squads in South Africa under apartheid. He produced documentaries on the Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Algeria, Burundi, Liberia, Sudan, and Sierra Leone, among other countries.

The award-winning journalist has been recognised internationally for his exceptional ways. For instance, 2002 was a significant year in Pauw's career as he was decorated with the ICIJ award based on his documentary on the Rwandan genocide.

He has also received Italy's Ilaria Alpi and the Nat Nakasa award for bravery and journalism integrity. Then, he has won the Daniel Pearl Award in the United States for Outstanding International Investigative Reporting.

Scandal and facts

On the 6th of February, 2021, Pauw was arrested at the V&A Waterfront and was detained overnight before he was released on a warning. Initially, Jacques Pauw Daily Maverick's published column posited that his credit card bounced a few times when he wanted to pay his bill at the restaurant. It was after then that "three policemen pounced on me, grabbed my arms and cuffed my hands as tightly as they could."

Considering the post detailing Jacques Pauw restaurant incident, he created the impression that the restaurant management called the police to arrest him. But then, after his release, he apologised to the public that it was not so; the police were around doing something else before they showed up to find out what the problem was. So, his arrest was due to overreaction.

The award-winning journalist apologised to the police officers for accusing them of taking the R1,000 cash with him.

When he left journalism in 2014, he was the head of investigations at Media24 newspapers (Naspers >>84477 ).

“Can Jaques Pauw Claim To Have a Reputation and Integrity to Protect?” – Accused of molesting boys

https://uncensoredopinion.co.za/can-jaques-pauw-claim-to-have-a-reputation-and-integrity-to-protect/

February 22, 2021

AFTER the recent damning admission by investigative journalist Jaques Pauw that he lied in an opinion piece published by Daily Maverick, can he still continue with his defamation lawsuit against Prerotia News editor Piet Rampedi?

Last year, Rampedi posted several tweets in which he accused Pauw of racism, lying and challenged him to address allegations that he molested children in Mozambique while on an assignment in early 2000.

Pauw then sent Rampedi a lawyer’s letter giving him 24hours to apologise and remove the remarks or face “legal action”. Rampedi ignored the gagging order, forcing Pauw to issue summons, suing Rampedi for R500,000. https://wp.me/p7OMJc-3c4

The big question is whether Pauw’s case against Rampedi can still hold given the former’s confession so devastating to media integrity that journalists who otherwise cover-up for their clique of friends, found themselves having to come out and lambast their own.

At the time, Rampedi called Daily Maverick a “propaganda portal” carrying the lies of Pauw. One of the tweets read: “Racist liar @Jaqqs must do two things before i can take him seriously: (a) Prove his lies in a 2017 book that the Guptas bankrolled my newspaper, and (b) clear serious allegations that he molested young boys in a hotel in Mozambique on SABC assignment in early 2000. #rogueunit”

In the aftermath of the Pauw lie, Anton Harber, a veteran journalist that has strongly criticised the Sunday Times and the journalists who wrote about the alleged SARS Rogue Unit, specifically Rampedi, took to Twitter. He called the Pauw incident “devastating”. “The Jacques Pauw/Daily M (Daily Maverick) saga has been devastating. The Satchwell Report on Media Credibility and Ethics was clear on how journos have to tighten up and stop this stream of appalling mess-ups if we are to rebuild credibility. This takes us back to first base”.

Daily Maverick, despite the serious accusations about the police and the restaurant, believed Pauw’s version. They claim they approached the other parties in the story but they were unwilling to speak. I frankly don’t believe they tried hard enough. Pauw is the king of the stratcom media cabal. Had it not been for the CCTV footage, Pauw would have gotten away with this lie. His story would have stuck and the question is how many such stories have been carried without proper editorial scrutiny.

There are other sources which indicate that the issue of South Africa’s death squads may have already surfaced by the time Nofomela made his confession. Another clear indication that Pauw did not expose Vlaakplas. The information was simply handed over to him – an argument some have made against him when he rubbished the many years of journalist Chris Steyn’s investigation into members of the National Party who were involved in child sex and paedophile rings. [Is Jacques Pauw protecting paedofiles?]

With respect to his case with Rampedi, can Pauw claim to have a reputation and integrity to protect? Methinks not.

“SABC EXCLUSIVE: Family believes Mark Minnie did not commit suicide” - https://youtu.be/o72n-RyxAJg

“Detective Publishes Book [The Lost Boys of Bird Island] Exposing High-Level Gov’t Pedophile Ring – Shot In The Head Days Later” – Part 1

https://thewashingtonstandard.com/detective-publishes-book-exposing-high-level-govt-pedophile-ring-shot-in-the-head-days-later/

August 23, 2018

A former police detective, and author of a bombshell book that exposed a massive pedophile ring made up of high-level government officials was found shot in the head last week. While officials are calling it an apparent suicide, his family is claiming that he told them he would never kill himself and that people were after him because he was about to expose even more high-level government pedophilia.

Mark Minne, author of the controversial book ‘The Lost Boys of Bird Island’ devoted his post-police life to exposing the corruption and horrifying pedophilia he discovered while working as a detective. Minnie and his good friend Chris Steyn, also a former cop turned investigative journalist, worked together on the book to expose a government and business community who took children to Bird Island where they were abused, and some possibly murdered.

The book details the level of their involvement in the pedophile ring, abuse of the children, alleged acts of murder to cover up the crimes, as well as corruption and abuse of high-level state resources by the network’s members.

The book details the corruption within the last Apartheid government of South Africa and implicated officials all the way to the top, including defense minister Magnus Malan and the minister of environmental affairs John Wiley.

Before his death, Minnie announced that he was approached by many more people with even more damning evidence which he planned to reveal in a sequel of the book. However, he died before he could finish it.

The book was published earlier this month on August 5 and only nine days later, Minnie would be found dead. Officials claim they found a suicide note at the scene, but his family says they don’t believe it at all.

Tersia Dodo, a family member of Minnie told reporters that just days before he died that if anything happened to him, they must know he was killed.

“He mentioned to us all the time that his life was in danger and if anything did happen to him we must know that it was done to him not by himself,” she said.

Dodo says Minnie was being watched and feared for his life because he had more information which would’ve exposed even more people.

“I knew about the book for many years and I knew what he had been through, it really played him that he had seen and been involved with the investigation surrounding the book,” Dodo told SABC.

Dodo came forward on her own after she saw the suicide narrative being played out in the media. She said she was compelled to do so, to dispel the myths.

August 23, 2018

“Mark was not a coward, Mark faced life head on,” she said. There is no ways that I or any of us believed that he would have opted out and that is why I agreed to do this interview to dispel any thoughts and rumors of suicide. He was not the type of man that was cowardly and that would do something like that.”

As for the note police allegedly found next to Minnie’s body, Dodo believes it is either fake, or was written under duress.

“I have said this from the beginning, this supposed suicide note was either written under duress and I would like to see it before I will believe it was written by Mark,” she said.

This case is eerily similar to that of a man who was allegedly murdered in Lithuania after he began exposing high-level government pedophiles.

As TFTP previously reported [https://thefreethoughtproject.com/family-murdered-home-raided-after-they-exposed-high-level-government-pedophiles/], teenage refugee from Lithuania came forward last year with a White House petition and a damning testimony showing what happened after his family tried to expose a little girl’s abusers.

When his four-year-old cousin accused two high-level government officials—describing it in heartbreaking detail—Korolis Venckienė learned the hard way how the government protects its vilest members, up to and including using hundreds of militarized police and even murder.

As Venckienė explained in his petition on WhiteHouse.gov, this nightmare started when their family attempted to seek justice for the sick men who allegedly raped his four-year-old cousin.

“In 2008, 4-year-old Deimante Kedyte described her sexual assault by high-level Lithuanian officials. Her testimony was later verified as true by 4 separate commissions. She never had her day in court,” Venckienė wrote.

When the teen’s uncle, Drasius Kedys, Deimante’s father pushed for the men to be prosecuted for what they did to his daughter, he was murdered.

If Minnie was actually murdered, hopefully, the information he was planning on releasing still comes forward. The only way to stop these vile actors is to shine light into the darkness. While Minnie has been silenced, his work can live on to be that light.

“'The Lost Boys of Bird Island' pulled from the shelves — and won't be published again”

https://www.dispatchlive.co.za/news/2020-04-17-the-lost-boys-of-bird-island-pulled-from-the-shelves-and-wont-be-published-again/

17 April 2020

NB Publishers on Friday announced it had withdrawn the book The Lost Boys of Bird Island and its Afrikaans version from circulation, in both print and digital formats.

The publisher said it took this decision after weighing up a number of factors.

In March, the publisher announced it had withdrawn unsold copies of both the Afrikaans and English book — which claimed to have exposed a paedophile ring allegedly run by apartheid-era politicians.

The book named three ministers, two of whom, Magnus Malan and John Wiley, have since died.

In March, the publishers conceded in a statement that the surviving minister, Barend du Plessis, could have been erroneously linked to the book.

After the announcement in March, lawyers for the three apartheid-era ministers said the book was nothing but a fabrication and a web of lies woven by its co-authors, Mark Minnie and Chris Steyn. Minnie killed himself at a friend’s farm in Port Elizabeth in 2018.

In its announcement on Friday, NB said it regretted and sincerely apologised for the emotional harm that the publication of the book may have caused the Malan and Wiley families.

“Furthermore, the book will not be reprinted,” the publisher said.

Below is an excerpt.

During the writing of this book, I learned that Malan once gave an order for a test vehicle to be blown up with a soldier still inside. A former military officer sent me this story in 2017, describing how angry Malan got with him when he did not follow his orders:

In 1983, whilst attending a course at Army Battle School, Lohatla, I was called on to blow up a new Mine Protected Vehicle [MPV] that was under development by ARMSCOR. Given the use of landmines and IEDs [improvised explosive devices] by PLAN [People’s Liberation Army of Namibia], the armed movement of SWAPO [South West Africa People’s Organisation] against the South African forces deployed there, constant research was being done to ensure the survivability of motorised South African troops.

The vehicle in question was developed as a possible replacement vehicle for the MPV known as the ‘Buffel’, a good vehicle but one that could have been improved on as new information on mine blasts became available. The new vehicle was to be driven over a landmine in full view of the invited guests, i.e. foreign military attachés and diplomats. They would witness the vehicle being blown up with a driver inside, watching this from a safe overlook.

My job was to lay and arm the landmine. Carrying the mine off to the designated blast area, I decided that there was no way in hell I was going to lay a mine and watch a South African soldier drive over it, no matter how much faith I had in our MPVs. As the vehicle came lumbering along, I stopped it, ordered the driver to get out and told him that I did not want him in the vehicle whilst it was being blown up. His relief was very clearly visible and I instructed him to stay with me at all times.

I placed the landmine under the front left wheel of the MPV – very close to where the driver would have been seated – and detonated the landmine. The driver kept thanking me, even while the dust, smoke, and noise was still settling. Had the driver been inside the vehicle cabin, he would at best have been severely maimed. At worst, he would have been killed by the blast. Walking back to re-join my class mates, I noticed General Malan looking distinctly unhappy. After all, according to my instructions, I had to blow up the vehicle with the driver inside of it. Perhaps that was why such a large visitors crowd had been brought along? Malan called me over and, in the presence of all the dignitaries, gave me a severe dressing-down for not following my instructions.

That was the nature of Magnus Malan.

About Lockerbie Bombing, Bernt Carlsson, Namibia, South Africa, US, CIA, De Beers/Anglo American, etc. – Connecting dots – Part 1

https://www.nytimes.com/1988/12/22/world/un-officer-on-flight-103.html, December 22, 1988

Bernt Carlsson, who was a passenger on the Pan Am flight that crashed over Scotland, had served as chief administrative officer of the United Nations Council for Namibia since July 1987. He was on his way here for a ceremony on Thursday, at which accords providing for Namibia's independence are to be signed by Angola, Cuba and South Africa.

The officer is, in theory, the United Nations' appointed governor for Namibia, the South African-ruled territory also known as South-West Africa. But because United Nations authority over Namibia is not recognized by South Africa, he is in practice the chief United Nations officer in charge of development programs intended to prepare Namibia for independence.

Mr. Carlsson, a 51-year-old Swedish diplomat, had been in London for a meeting with nongovernmental groups, United Nations officials said.

From 1983 to 1985, he was an Ambassador at large and special emissary of Prime Minister Olof Palme to the Middle East and Africa.

"Proper judicial procedure is simply impossible if political interests and intelligence services from whichever side succeed in interfering in the actual conduct of a court … The purpose of intelligence services from whichever side lies in secret action and deception, not in the search for truth. Justice and the rule of law can never be achieved without transparency."

–Hans Koechler, U.N. observer at the Zeist trial

I find it increasingly difficult to argue with Dr. De Braeckeleer's conclusion: "Shame on those who committed this horrific act of terror. Shame on those who have ordered the cover-up. Shame on those who provided false testimony, and those who suppressed and fabricated the evidence needed to frame Libya. And shame on the media for their accomplice silence."

Meanwhile, new extraordinary revelations have surfaced that support my view that the Lockerbie trial was engineered by Western intelligence services to frame Libya.

It now appears that huge amounts of money were offered by U.S. officials to at least three key witnesses. The defense was never told that the CIA had offered millions of dollars to their star witnesses.

It was during the trial that Gup's book was published, and given the apparent candor that it showed in discussing the secret roles of Gannon, Twetten, and the Agency in general in the Lockerbie disaster, no one could reasonably expect that the United States and the CIA were the government and secret intelligence agency involved. But this was the case, as the Scottish police officer finally coming forward has demonstrated, with the Agency providing in various corrupt ways what has been explained above: the bombings of Pan Am Flight 103 and French UTA Flight 772 were matches of Islamic terrorism. "Then, in 2003," after an appeal had confirmed the conviction, "a retired CIA officer gave a statement to Megrahi's lawyers in which he alleged evidence had been planted." (Marcello Mega, Scotland on Sunday, August 28, 2005)

By the time The Fall of Pan Am 103, written by Steven Emerson and Brian Duffy, appeared in 1990, the 'conspiracy theories' had been so shot down that no serious person would listen to them any longer, though Joe Vialls continued to claim that the Zionists had done it.

That should change now. The planted evidence, plus Gup's false stories, should make everyone be thinking conspiracy. It should be seen, it seems, as the disaster the just-elected George H. W. Bush arranged to prevent the worst secrets of Iran-Contra ruining his Presidency.

http://whale.to/c/murder_of_policewoman.html

There is no doubt that Robin Cook's statement was designed to quash growing public skepticism about Libyan involvement in the downing of Pan Am 103 during 1988. When investigators finally prove officially that the Libyans were not responsible for Yvonne Fletcher's murder in London, British and American Government credibility over the fake charges on Pan Am 103 will be destroyed. This will leave unanswered the critical question of exactly who ordered and carried out the murders of 259 citizens on the ill-fated "Maid of the Seas", high above Lockerbie in December 1988.

US House of Representatives

Washington, D.C.

Subject: My knowledge of CIA involvement in the crash of the Gander Arrow Air DC-8 and PAN AM 103

My specialized knowledge of ordinance, explosives and pyrotechnics may provide the missing insights needed to solve several major terrorist crimes. For 15 years my company ACCURACY SYSTEMS ORDINANCE CORPORATION, provided specialized explosive devices to law enforcement, the military, Special Forces and the Central Intelligence Agency.

Most of the military victims had been part of the 101st Airborne who were returning from Cairo, Egypt, where they were part of the U. N. peacekeeping mission enforcing the Camp David Accords. However, in addition to these troops, there was also a small group of Special Operations personnel who boarded the plane at the last minute. Sources found to be reliable told me that these personnel smuggled a nuclear backpack bomb aboard in Cairo because they had discovered the true nature of their recently cancelled hostage rescue mission.

However, the real reason I am sending you the reports of federal efforts to silence me is to emphasize the value of the specialized knowledge that I possess. As a second example, I present photos of the detonator that initiated the bomb on PAN AM 103. I know where this circuit board was manufactured in Florida, not Europe, and that it was sold exclusively to the CIA— not to the Libyans!

All of my current efforts to have local and federal law enforcement agencies (including their parent agencies in DC) investigate these matters have been unsuccessful. In fact, our US Attorney has actually defended the perpetrators and local US District Court judges have refused to act on my requests, or, in most cases, simply Dismissed them or ruled in favor of the U S Attorney. In spite of overwhelming evidence that not only am I telling the truth, but the Federal Agents are lying, filing False Affidavits or otherwise knowingly misleading the Court.

Notice Bill Barr [US Attorney General 1991] and Robert Mueller [US assistant Attorney General] handled the situation, see video clips concerning their statements; 1:42 – Bill Barr and 1:14:04 – Robert Mueller.

25:09 – “A number of VIPs were pulled off that plane, a number of intelligence operatives were pulled off that plane. The South Africans, particularly Pik Botha, were booked on flight 103 and changed pretty much at the last hour or so. These South Africans had been warned by Bureau State Security to change reservations. The South Africans booked on flight 103 cancelled just before departure along with Pik Botha, General Malan, the Defense Minister, General van Tonder, Head of the Secret Service BOSS, and other senior government officials. Botha, Malan and Van Tonder confirmed this change in travel arrangements to British businessman Tiny Rowlands. They tell him the source of the information was of the kind that could not be dismissed. Botha rebooks on the earlier PAN AM 101, General van Tonder and 2 other members of BOSS cancel their trip all together. BOSS has close ties to 2 very important services, to the Israeli service and also to the American Central Intelligence Agency.”

https://inteltoday.org/2019/10/13/one-year-ago-apartheid-foreign-minister-pik-botha-dies-lockerbie-conspiracy/

The suggestion was that there was a plot to assassinate Bernt Carlsson, the designated UN Commissioner for the newly independent Namibia, who died on the flight. (INTEL TODAY – Carlsson was rebooked on PA103 because he had been delayed by a meeting with De Beers officials in Brussels.)

Not a single US worker at the Moscow embassy took flight Pan Am 103 from Frankfurt, a standard and popular route home for Christmas.

Allan Francovich: The Maltese Double-Cross – Lockerbie (1994)

Produced, written, and directed by Allan Francovich and financed by Tiny Rowland, the film was released by Hemar Enterprises in November 1994.

With a controversial premise, it was immediately threatened with legal action by lawyers acting for a US government official, and the British government prevented screenings at the 1994 London Film Festival, at the Institute of Contemporary Arts and at several universities.

Some background regarding Tiny Rowland

[Janus] Walus's possible involvement with British intelligence becomes highlighted also with the sudden visit to South Africa, just days before the [ANC’s Chris Hani’s] assassination, of one of the most important figures in British intelligence, former MI-6 Africa desk head Nicholas Elliott. Despite being in his seventies, Elliott made the arduous journey to Johannesburg from London for a mere three days of meetings. According to sources in London, he met with Julian Ogilvie-Thompson, head of the Anglo-American Corp., the ANC's chief financial sponsor inside the country. Elliott, whose father had been headmaster at the elite British boarding school Eton, was the lifelong friend of Soviet spy Kim Philby, and was suspected of having tipped off Philby in 1963 that he was being investigated by British counterintelligence, allowing him to escape to Moscow. Elliott is also a former board member of Lonrho of Tiny Rowland. Rowland's Lonrho purchased the ANC's Johannesburg headquarters [where the shell house massacre occurred before SA’s first ‘democratic election] for them, and is bankrolling a planned new ANC newspaper.

BERNT CARLSSON: THE TARGET ON PAN AM FLIGHT 103? By Patrick Haseldine

http://www.shirleymckie.com/documents/BERNT_CARLSSON.pdf

Countdown to Lockerbie

1. On 27 September 1974, the UN Council for Namibia (UNCN) enacts Decree No 1 which prohibits all exploitation of Namibia's natural resources - particularly diamonds and uranium. The Decree provides for the payment of damages to the future government of an independent Namibia.

2. UN Security Council Resolution 435 of 1978 orders apartheid South Africa to withdraw from its illegal occupation of Namibia.

3. On 1 July 1987, Bernt Carlsson is appointed an Assistant Secretary-General of the United Nations and the UN Commissioner for Namibia. Within two weeks of Carlsson's appointment, the UNCN institutes infraction proceedings against the uranium producer URENCO in the Netherlands, and signals similar action against Belgium, the Federal Republic of Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. [“Bernt Carlsson and The Case of the Disappearing Diamonds Part 3” - https://youtu.be/IHIDaGrIsmY]

4. Reagan/Gorbachev summit of June 1988 decides on Namibian independence. The New York Accords are scheduled for signature on 22 December 1988 by US/Soviet client states: South Africa, Cuba and Angola. 5. In July 1988, UN Commissioner for Namibia, Bernt Carlsson, is invited to address the Development Committee of the European Parliament in Brussels on 20 December 1988.

6. Early in December 1988, Carlsson appears in the Granada TV documentary "Disappearing Diamonds" and criticises De Beers for illegal extraction of Namibia's diamonds (value $18.7 billion at 2009 prices). As a result, De Beers summon him to a meeting in London on 21 December 1988. Three days before his departure from New York to Brussels on 19 December 1988, Carlsson cancels his return flight booking from Brussels to New York. Instead, he books himself on British Airways Flight 391 to London for the meeting with De Beers, and on Pan Am Flight 103 from Heathrow to JFK. (This information is derived from Jan-Olof Bengtsson's article in the Swedish newspaper iDAG of 12 March 1990. It has never been published in English. Why?)

7. A 23-strong delegation from South Africa are also booked on Pan Am Flight 103. Their South African Airways flight from Johannesburg is forbidden by the US Comprehensive AntiApartheid Act of 1986 from continuing to New York. So Foreign Minister, Pik Botha, Defence Minister, Magnus Malan, Director of Military Intelligence, General Van Tonder, and 20 negotiators have to suffer the indignity of alighting at Heathrow and of taking the US carrier, Pan Am, to JFK. In the event, none of the 23 South Africans travelled on Carlsson's flight. Six are reported to have taken the morning Pan Am Flight 101 to New York, and 17 are understood to have returned by SAA to Johannesburg. (The fact that Pik Botha's delegation were booked on Pan Am Flight 103 was suppressed for six years - until the Reuters news agency reported it on 12 November 1994. Why?)

Conclusion

No attempt has yet been made to formally investigate the murder of UN Commissioner for Namibia, Bernt Carlsson. The decision not to investigate was taken by a junior Scottish policeman, Detective Constable John Crawford, on the basis of information supplied to him by "a very helpful lady librarian in Newcastle". Former MEP Michael McGowan has called for urgent action by the UN. He is the 17th signatory of an online petition ( http://petitions.number10.gov.uk/BerntCarlsson/ ) which demands a United Nations inquiry into the murder of UN Commissioner for Namibia, Bernt Carlsson, in the 1988 Lockerbie Bombing

“The Lockerbie Bombing Apartheid Conspiracy” – Brent “Carlsson had links with the ANC”

https://secretsouthafrica.wordpress.com/2010/08/26/the-lockerbie-bombing-apartheid-conspiracy/. Another twist

The Commissioner was on his way to the UN signing of the Tripartite Accord which would grant independence to Namibia and end the direct involvement of foreign troops in the Angolan Civil War. Interestingly, Carlsson had links with the ANC.

On the 14th of March, 1982 he tipped off the then ANC president, Oliver Tambo not to attend a meeting in the London offices of the ANC which were bombed by one of Carlsson’s compatriots on the same day.

The fact that Bernt Carlsson had been helpful to the president of the ANC (Oliver Tambo) on a number of previous occasions provides possible ascription of motive for assassination to the apartheid government in that the ANC were one of their greatest political enemies.

About Lockerbie Bombing, Bernt Carlsson, Namibia, South Africa, US, CIA, De Beers/Anglo American, etc. – Connecting dots – Part 7

Gala premiere of “Chaplin”, funded by De Beers in memory of Bernt Carlsson, Dag Hammarskjold mentioned - PJ Haseldine 20 December 1992 Letter

https://wikispooks.com/wiki/File:Guardian_letter_20_Dec_1992.jpg and attached. Below are excerpts.

The souvenir programme briefly described Mr Carlsson’s life and reported that he died on December 21, 1988 but failed to make any mention of the Lockerbie disaster and that he was the most prominent of its 270 victims.

Why?

Of course, the explanation might have nothing at all to do with the fact that the gala’s benefactor and biggest advertiser in the programme was De Beers, who control the mining, marketing and pricing of the world’s diamonds; nor that Namibia, which did not manage to shrug off the illegal occupation of most of its territory by South Africa until late 1989, is the source of some of the best diamond gemstones; nor that Mr Carlsson was in fear of his life in the seven days leading to Lockerbie; nor that Mr Carlsson made a last-minute, unscheduled trip from Belgium on December 21, 1988 to meet De Beers in London, just prior to boarding the fateful flight PanAm 103.

Far be it from me (an ex-diplomat) to point an accusatory finger, but it was only a few months ago in these collumns that two former UN diplomats, George Ivan Smith and Conor Cruse O’Brien, accused mining interests of responsibility for the plane crash in which Swedish UN Secretary-General, Dag Hammarskjold, died in Rhodesia 31 years ago.

“LOCKERBIE: A PRIME SUSPECT: De Beers/ Anglo American Group”

http://lockerbiedivide.blogspot.com/2010/01/london-origin-theory.html?showComment=1264768549230#c5692664032111793634

Patrick Haseldine said…

Dear Adam,

Here is Gordon Brown's reason (sent to me by e-mail yesterday) for you to suspect otherwise:

LOCKERBIE: A PRIME SUSPECT

With reference to the murder of United Nations Commissioner for Namibia, Bernt Carlsson, and 269 other innocent folk in the attack on Pan Am Flight 103 over Scotland in 1988, it would not be out of line to consider the De Beers/ Anglo American Group a prime suspect as it had the Motive, Means and Opportunity to carry out such an attack.

MOTIVE: With regards to motive, the Group had a pressing need:

1. to prevent an in-depth investigation of its decades-long illegal gem diamond mining operations in Namibia in breach of United Nations Decree No. 1 which Bernt Carlsson was about to conduct,

2. to prevent the United Nations Commissioner for Namibia from further uncovering and quantifying the secretive high-grading/overmining practice which the Group had embarked upon with the object of depleting Namibia’s more valuable gem diamond resources ahead of an internationally recognised independence settlement; an illegal practice which had been brought to public note through the findings of the Thirion Judicial Commission of Inquiry,

3. to hide from public scrutiny the human rights abuses and discriminatory employment practices the Group’s Namibian employees had been subjected to for more than 50 years,

4. to ward off a massive claim for damages the United Nations could legally have instituted against the Group on behalf of the people of Namibia,

5. to frustrate any action likely to threaten the Group’s dominant control of diamond mining in Namibia and prevent its lucrative concessions from being legally expropriated in the public interest and granted to a less controversial and more responsible mining company. This effectively would have ended the De Beers Diamond Cartel’s monopolistic control of the world diamond industry.

MEANS: Through the Group’s established contacts and dealings with the CCB, CIA (through Maurice Tempelsman [remember in one of the previous South Africa thread(s) that he is connected to the Kennedy family]), BOSS and Executive Outcomes, The Group most certainly possessed the means to carry out such an attack. Breaking into Heathrow Airport’s luggage handling section would have posed little difficulty to any one of these organisations. There was money and expertise aplenty to carry out such an operation.

OPPORTUNITY: There was more than adequate time to plan and execute this heinous criminal act as Bernt Carlsson’s movements and travel arrangements, dictated in part by De Beers in London, were known to The Group well in advance. It was the ideal crime as nobody would ever suspect Bernt Carlsson was the target and therefore no finger would ever point at De Beers/Anglo American. This cowardly attack was conveniently labelled the dastardly work of a terrorist organisation.

UN Council for Namibia sues Netherlands over Namibia's natural resources – Urenco

In an unprecedented action, the United Nations Council for Namibia has instituted legal proceedings in the Netherlands against the Dutch uranium enrichment plant Urenco Nederland V.O.F. and its State-controlled managing partner Ultracentrifuge Nederland N.V., as well as the Government of the Netherlands, "to prevent Urenco Nederland V.O.F. from carrying out orders on the basis of purchases of Namibian uranium'. The Council is the legal Administering Authority for the Territory until independence. It is the first time that a United Nations body has sued a Government.

Council President Peter D. Zuze of Zambia said the action was "only a first step by the Council in implementing its decision of May 1985 to institute legal proceedings, as one of various options, to safeguard the natural resources of Namibia'. The writ of summons was served on the defendants on 14 July 1987. On 23 July 1987, the Netherlands, in a letter (A/42/414) to the Secretary-General called the action "unprecedented', adding that Netherlands electricity companies did not buy Namibian uranium. Urenco Nederland V.O.F. and Ultracentrifuge Nederland N.V. operated within a German, British and Netherlands consortium, Urenco Ltd., established in 1971, that concluded enrichment contracts on behalf of the three partners in the consortium with electricity suppliers. The enrichment processes did not take place in the Netherlands.

The Council's Steering Committee on 2 May 1985 decided to institute legal action, in domestic courts of States and other appropriate bodies, against corporations or individuals who were violating the Council's 1974 Decree No. 1 for the Protection of the Natural Resources of Namibia. The Committee had also decided that those legal proceedings would commence in the Netherlands, against Urenco, a company which it said was known to process Namibian uranium in violation of the Decree.

The Decree forbids any person or entity from searching for, prospecting for, exploring for, taking, extracting, mining, processing, refining, using, selling, exporting or distributing any natural resources, whether animal or mineral, situated or found to be situated within Namibia's territorial limits without the Council's consent and permission.

Other countries against which such action might be taken are: Belgium, France, the Federal Republic of Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Council+for+Namibia+sues+Netherlands+over+Namibia's+n atural…-a06272039

https://www.citizen.org/wp-content/uploads/urenco.pdf

Urenco also came under fire from the United Nations, which accused the company of obtaining uranium from Namibia without permission. The UN had asserted authority over Namibia in 1967, but the apartheid government of South African continued to exercise control of the territory and its mineral wealth. A Urenco spokesperson responded to the charge by saying “we don’t know where the stuff comes from.”x (The case was later dropped as Namibia moved toward independence in 1990.)

“Pik Botha’s Lockerbie mystery” – 1 of 2

https://www.iol.co.za/ios/behindthenews/pik-bothas-lockerbie-mystery-17617534

Oct 24, 2018

Chris Nicholson [retired judge of the High Court in KwaZulu-Natal]

What do Mats Wilander, the tennis player, and former National Party minister Pik Botha have in common?

Botha and Wilander both missed Pan Am Flight 103, which crashed over Lockerbie in Scotland on December 21, 1988, killing 270 people.

“Those whom the gods love, die young” is an adage from Greek mythology but for the handsome, curly-haired Swede the gods were clearly making an exception when he missed Pan Am Flight 103. Since that fateful day, Wilander has had a wonderful career and made a lot of money. He now spends much of his time living on an 33-hectare estate in Hailey, Idaho, US, which is part of the Sun Valley ski resort. He married Sonya (née Mulholland), a South African model from Summerveld, Durban.

On January 11, 1989 Botha travelled to Stockholm in Sweden with other foreign dignitaries - including UN Secretary-General Javier Pérez de Cuéllar - for the funeral of the UN’s Commissioner for South-West Africa, Bernt Carlsson. Botha was interviewed by Sue MacGregor on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, and alleged that he and a 22-strong South African delegation, who were booked to fly from London to New York on December 21, 1988, had been targeted by the ANC. However, having been alerted to these ANC plans to kill him, Botha said he managed to outsmart them by taking the earlier Pan Am Flight 101 from Heathrow to JFK Airport, New York.

Despite having the knowledge, the question remains why he did not tell the airline security and alert the other passengers that their deaths were going to follow in a few minutes. Is there any other conclusion but that Botha was happy for them to go to their deaths?

The notion that Botha was warned is bolstered by statements made by Oswald Le Winter, who worked for the CIA from 1968 to 1985, and Tiny Rowland in the 1994 film The Maltese Double Cross, https://youtu.be/0B5hv6scbBo [Embedded]. This film was made by Allan Francovich, who later died under suspicious circumstances.

“Pik Botha’s Lockerbie mystery” – 2 of 2

https://www.iol.co.za/ios/behindthenews/pik-bothas-lockerbie-mystery-17617534

Oct 24, 2018

In the film Le Winter quotes Rowland as disclosing that Botha had told him he and 22 South African delegates were going to New York for the Namibian Independence Ratification Ceremony and were all booked on the Pan Am Flight 103. They were given a warning from a source which could not be ignored and changed flights. The source revealed by Le Winter is the SA Bureau for State Security (BOSS), which he claims had close contacts with Israeli intelligence and the CIA.

Could the “rough working notes” and the “personal diary of those days” have been fabricated to save Pik Botha’s skin from a most embarrassing and possibly criminal act? Two years before Eglin asked the questions in Parliament, Botha was contacted by the press and his replies were reported on a Reuters Textline of November 12, 1994, under the heading “South African Minister denies knowing of Lockerbie Bomb”.

The article said: “Former foreign minister Pik Botha denied on Saturday he had been aware in advance of a bomb on board Pan Am Flight 103 which exploded over Lockerbie in Scotland in 1988, killing 270 people. The minister confirmed through his spokesman that he and his party had been booked on the ill-fated airliner but switched flights after arriving early in London from Johannesburg.”

There is further confirmation of the fabrication from other sources. On November 12, 1994, Botha’s spokesperson, Gerrit Pretorius, told Reuters that Botha and 22 South African negotiators, including Defence Minister Magnus Malan and Foreign Affairs director Neil van Heerden, had been booked on Pan Am Flight 103. He said “the flight from Johannesburg arrived early in London and the embassy got us on to an earlier flight. Had we been on Pan Am Flight 103 the impact on South Africa and the region would have been massive. It happened on the eve of the signing of the tripartite agreements,” said Pretorius, referring to pacts signed at the UN headquarters on December 22, 1988, which ended South African and Cuban involvement in Angola, and which led to Namibian independence.

Another statement by Pretorius was in appallingly bad taste: “The minister is flattered by the allegation of near-omniscience.” Pretorius goes on to explain again how the change had come about. “But we got to London an hour early and the embassy got us on an earlier flight. When we got to JFK (airport) a contemporary of mine said, ‘Thank God you weren’t on 103. It crashed over Lockerbie’.”

Papenfus admits a further intriguing detail: “In response to enquiries the Department of Foreign Affairs initially officially denied that seats had ever been booked for the ministerial party on Pan Am Flight 103. They said that the bookings had been on Flight 101 right from the beginning.” Papenfus concludes: “The tragedy claimed the life of the UN’s Commissioner for South West Africa, Mr Bernt Carlsson of Sweden. He was supposed to have been present at the signing of the agreements.”

The question remains whether he was not the real target of those who put the bomb on Pan Am 103.

“OPPENHEIMER OF SOUTH AFRICA" - Chester Crocker stated that South Africa is the Saudi Arabia of minerals. He later became a Director of Minorco

https://www.nytimes.com/1983/05/08/magazine/oppenheimer-of-south-africa.html

May 8, 1983

Of course, it might also be said to be by its nature a part of Africa. But then the Reagan Administration's man on Africa [Chester A. Crocker] didn't mean to be talking race; he was talking power, economics and ideology. He was talking of a South Africa that deserves to be called, as he elsewhere noted, the Saudi Arabia of minerals.

Despite South Africa's exchange controls, the group has managed in recent years to build up large holdings in the United States and Canada through the Bermuda-based Minerals and Resources Corporation, known as Minorco, whose board includes such American business eminences as Citicorp's Walter B. Wriston and Lazard Freres' Felix Rohatyn. Forbes magazine claimed a few years ago that Minorco was the largest foreign investor in the United States. Anglo American modestly says Forbes's calculations were ridiculously inflated, but Minorco's lengthening list of interests includes coal in Appalachia, copper in Arizona, fertilizer in Iowa and investment banking on Wall Street through Salomon Brothers.

https://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract_id=2655201

Lastly, that edition of Optima commented on the “valiant efforts” (Barber 1987a, p. 68) of Dr. Chester Crocker, the then American Assistant Secretary of State for Africa. Both De Beers and Anglo American were obviously enormously enamored with Crocker. By 1990 [the year Mandela was released], they had appointed him as a director of Minorco, which was based in Luxembourg and “the main overseas investor for Oppenheimer funds” (Kanfer 1993, p. 362). A high-profile appointment to such an entity suggests a very different imperative to that which Oppenheimer voiced in his interview with Nielsen (1985) regarding investing beyond South Africa.

Mon 8 Jun 2020

Dag Hammarskjöld brought me to Olof Palme. Two Swedish leaders, both supporting small nations on the world scene, both of whom refused to be controlled by global superpowers; both died a violent death.

Through the Hammarskjöld investigation I had built an extensive network of contacts: former intelligence operatives, ex-military staff, historians, and journalists. For the Palme case, one of the most useful contacts was a former general, Tienie Groenewald, who at the time of Palme’s murder had been in charge of South Africa’s National Intelligence Interpretation Branch. He told me fascinating stories of how South African military intelligence collaborated with the CIA, how the Israelis helped South Africa acquire the nuclear bomb – but not much of value for the Palme case.

“Israel’s Most Wanted Gang Leader Arrested in Bryanston, South Africa”

https://www.sapeople.com/2022/11/18/israels-most-wanted-gang-leader-arrested-in-bryanston-south-africa/

Nov 18, 2022

The combined efforts of Interpol South Africa and the South African Police Service (SAPS) have led to the arrest in Johannesburg of an Israeli gang leader, who has been on Interpol’s Red Notice since 2015.

The 46-year-old alleged criminal – attached to a criminal organisation in Israel called the ‘Abergil Organisation’ – was arrested, together with seven others at a house in Bryanston, Johannesburg.

“The Israeli gang leader has been on Interpol’s Red Notice from 2015. He is a wanted suspect in Israel for conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder,” said the SAPS in a statement.

According to Israeli authorities, the suspect is part of a notorious gang dealing in drug trafficking, extortion and other criminal activities.

In 2003 and 2004, the wanted suspect allegedly placed an explosive bomb underneath a vehicle of a man in Israel in two separate incidents. As a result of the first explosion, five people sustained serious injuries but all miraculously survived.

In the second incident, the suspect also attempted to do the same with the same victim, where he placed a bomb on top of a vehicle. In this incident, three people also sustained serious injuries.

In the early morning raid, the team pounced on an identified address in Bryanston and found the suspect and seven others. Police seized five assault rifles, seven pistols, an amount of $40 000 and three suspected stolen motorcycles. – SAnews.gov.za

The Bill Gates Effect: WHO’s DTP vaccine killed more children in Africa than the diseases it targeted

January 5, 2021 (Children’s Health Defense) — Anyone defending the Bill Gates/WHO global vaccine program needs to explain this study: Mogensen et al 2017. Prior to 2017, neither HHS nor WHO ever performed the kind of vaccinated/unvaccinated (or placebo) study necessary to ascertain if the DTP vaccine actually yields beneficial health outcomes. The DTP vaccine was discontinued in the US and western nations in the 1990s following thousands of reports of death and brain damage.

… girls vaccinated with the DTP vaccine—the flagship of Bill Gates’s GAVI/WHO African vaccine program—died at 10 times the rate of unvaccinated kids.

But Bill Gates and his surrogates, GAVI and WHO, made DTP a priority for African babies. The Danish government and Novo Nordisk Foundation commissioned this study by a team of the world’s leading experts on African vaccination. The two most prominent names, Drs. Soren Mogensen and Peter Aaby, are both vocal vaccine supporters. They were shocked when they examined years of data from a so called “natural experiment” in Guinea Bissau where 50% of children die before age five. In that west African nation, half the children were vaccinated with the DTP vaccine at three months and the other half at six months. Dr. Mogenson and his team found that girls vaccinated with the DTP vaccine died at 10 times the rate of unvaccinated kids. While the vaccinated children were protected from Diphtheria, Tetanus and Pertussis, they were far more susceptible to other deadly diseases than unvaccinated peers. The vaccine apparently compromised their immune systems. Thanks to Gates, DTP is the world’s most popular vaccine.

The researchers suggested that the DTP vaccine is killing more children than the diseases it targets.

For African nations, GAVI and WHO use DTP vaccine uptake to gauge national compliance with vaccine recommendations. GAVI can financially punish nations that don’t fully comply. The researchers suggested that the DTP vaccine is killing more children than the diseases it targets. It’s possible that millions of children are adversely affected. Although the New York Times and other Gates boosters will accuse me of promoting “vaccine misinformation”, this is a peer reviewed publication in a respected journal by the world’s most authoritative vaccine scientists describing catastrophic outcomes.

“Crime ‘worrying’ in South Africa: 7,000 murdered in three months”

https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2022/11/23/crime-worrying-in-south-africa-7000-murdered-in-three-months

23 Nov 2022

Quarterly crime statistics show a rise in murder, rape and kidnapping figures compared with the same time last year.

More than 7,000 people were murdered over three months in South Africa, according to new police statistics, which showed a rise in violent crime from the same period last year.

On Wednesday, South Africa’s parliamentary portfolio committee on police heard details of the crime statistics, recording those crimes reported to the South African Police Service (SAPS) from July 1 to September 30, 2022.

Quarterly figures showed that the murder rate rose 14 percent between July and September, compared with the same timeframe in 2021, when 6,163 people were killed.

Almost 1,000 women were among those murdered during the period in 2022. More than 13,000 women were also victims of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm, and 1,277 women were victims of attempted murder.

“The rate at which women are abused, violated and some killed in South Africa remains worrying and unacceptable,” Police Minister Bheki Cele told a news conference.

The figures also showed that kidnappings doubled to more than 4,000 compared with the same time last year; and rapes, in a country notorious for sex attacks against women and children, were up 11 percent, with 10,000 cases opened across the country.

Carjackings rose 24 percent to more than 6,000.

And between April and September, more than 550 children were killed.

“The crime statistics again show that we as communities continue to fail to protect some of the most vulnerable in society: our children,” Cele said.

“ICYMI: DCS to appeal SCA ruling on Zuma’s return to jail”

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/icymi-dcs-to-appeal-sca-ruling-on-zumas-return-to-jail/

24-11-2022 05:51

The Department says the intended appeal of Jacob Zuma’s judgement to return to jail is based on its application legislation.

The Department of Correctional Services has announced that it would be appealing to the ruling by the Supreme Court of Appeal (SCA) on Jacob Zuma’s medical parole.

CORRECTIONAL SERVICE TAKES ON SCA RULING

The Supreme Court of Appeal confirmed on Monday that the medical parole granted to the former President was unlawful. The SCA ruled that Zuma should return to jail.

The Department of Correctional Services immediate response was to study the judgment before announcing a way forward.

But the department confirmed on Wednesday night that it would instead appeal this ruling.

Spokesperson Singabakho Nxumalo said the Department of Correctional Services is to file leave to appeal the judgement handed down in Bloemfontein.

“Having carefully studied the judgement, Correctional Services is convinced that another court may arrive at a different conclusion.”

Singabakho Nxumalo

He said the Department is considering this route on the basis of the interpretation and application of the Correctional Services Act and other relevant prescripts, said Nxumalo.

ZUMA LOSES LEGAL BID WITH COSTS

The Supreme Court ruled against Zuma’s bid to avoid returning to jail. Zuma was sentenced to 15 months imprisonment in June last year. This was after he was found guilty of being in contempt of court as he failed to show up before the Commission of Inquiry into State Capture.

But he was released two months later on medical parole, which former Correctional Service boss Arthur Fraser approved.

However, High Court judge Elias Matojane ruled in December 2021 that Fraser erred in his decision. The judge ordered that the former President return to jail to serve the remainder of his sentence. This would be at the Estcourt Correctional Centre where he was serving his sentence.

The SCA said however that it has no power to determine how inmates should serve their sentences. The court also does not have the authority to state when an offender qualifies for parole.

Zuma was also ordered to pay legal costs for the Democratic Alliance (DA). This includes Afriforum as the two organisations challenged the medical parole release before the courts.

The DA had on Monday sent a lawyer’s letter to the acting National Commissioner of Correctional Services. The party is demanding that he confirms that Zuma will be back in prison by Friday.

The party gave the Commissioner until Wednesday to answer their demand.

“Independent Media, Thabo Makwakwa granted leave to appeal interdict sought by SSA”

https://www.iol.co.za/news/independent-media-thabo-makwakwa-granted-leave-to-appeal-interdict-sought-by-ssa-e8e377e0-e083-409d-80ab-fa52f8079809

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 24, 2022

Cape Town - Independent Media, Independent Online and journalist Thabo Makwakwa were granted leave to appeal a judgment by the North Gauteng High Court, which interdicted them from publishing an intelligence report on the alleged activities of the CIA in destabilising the ANC.

The report in question was compiled by the State Security Agency and titled “US interest in ANC party dynamics”. The report was handed to Makwakwa by concerned sources in the SSA in December 2021. The SSA had previously obtained an interdict preventing Independent Media from publishing the report.

Independent Media’s editor-in-chief, Aziz Hartley, said Independent Media, Makwakwa and IOL, all cited as respondents in the original interdict application, were of the professional opinion that it was the media’s right to report on matters that were in the public interest.

“The contents contained in this report are of the utmost importance and interest to the public. Preventing such matters from coming to light is an infringement of media freedom,” said Hartley.

Judge Daisy Molefe, in her ruling granting Independent Media leave to appeal on Thursday, that Independent Media submitted that there are also compelling reasons why leave to appeal should be granted because: (a) there is no definitive judgment on the question as to how journalists should treat classified information leaked to them, and this is of enormous significance for the work of journalists and for the public’s right of access to information; (b) there is no case law which pronounces conclusively on the issues in the appeal, and thus the matter is deserving of further scrutiny by a higher court.

“For these reasons, I am satisfied that leave to appeal the order to the SCA should be granted,” said Molefe

Last week, Molefe made public her judgment that had previously interdicted Independent Media from making the report public.

Hartley said the judgment was a victory for press freedom.

“The judgment is a great victory for Independent Media and media freedom in general. We have always maintained our stance that the matter has been in the public interest. We have been vindicated,” said Hartley.

“EXLUSIVE: Top Secret SSA report reveals US link to ANC”

https://www.pressreader.com/south-africa/the-star-south-africa-early-edition/20220519/281590949171358

19 May 2022

Below are excerpts.

A “Top secret” report, titled Intelligence Brief: US interest in ANC party dynamics, which was allegedly compiled by the South African State Security Agency (SSA), has revealed how the political office of the embassy of the United States of America in Pretoria is working with some of the top ANC leaders to influence policy direction in South Africa.

The Star’s sister paper, the Daily news is in possession of the highly classified intelligence report dated 5, 2020 (referenced DMS: 10001242724).

The newspaper is today publishing part one of the report which will be followed by part two.

Furthermore, it revealed the US National Security Strategy had mandated US intelligence formations to “identify and assess capabilities, activities, and intentions of state and non-state entities and do develop a deep understanding of the strategic environment and to warn of future developmets”.

“The Political Office of the US Embassy in Tshwane continues to gather information related to the ruling party, which is then sent to the US State Department. This brief confirms that the US Embassy is part of the US intelligence community, and has network of ANC party officials who, wittingly or unwittingly, share privileged information,” read the intelligence report.

According to the SSA report, the US Mission in South Africa has, over the years, created a comprehensive network of contracts and sources, and these sources’ efforts have been successful in acquiring information for US intelligence.

The document also stated there was close co-operation taking place between the US diplomatic community and the US intelligence community in South Africa to guard and enhance US economic and political agendas in targeted countries like South Africa.

“Battle to open ‘CIA spies’ report”

https://www.pressreader.com/south-africa/cape-argus/20220520/281483574990742

20 May 2022

Below are excerpts.

The report, the content of which cannot be fully disclosed since the matter will be heard behind closed chambers in Pretoria on Tuesday, was allegedly compiled by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) spies based at the US embassy in Pretoria.

It was shared with the SSA before sources leaked it to Cape Argus sister title the Daily News.

SSA deputy director-general Welcome Simelane filed its papers, supported by officials like SSA spokesperson Mava Scott, who had alerted his bosses about the newspaper’s intention to publish parts of the report. The report showed how the US infiltrated the ANC using certain leaders to change policy direction in favour of the US.

‘It implicates certain high-profile South African politicians in cooperating with the US, and specically deals with the US’s involvement in causing conflicts and instabilities in the ANC as the governing party, the functioning thereof, the different factions therein, who belongs to which faction and which members of the ANC pose a threat to US interest in South Africa…

“… the disclosure of which… may seriously compromise the peace and well-being of the people of South Africa, because it may cause civil unrest, as happened during the July 2021 uprising and subsequent loss of life and severe damage to property and infrastructure… damage the relationship between the US and the Republic of South Africa and endanger the lives of the people mentioned in the report,” Simelane’s affidavit stated.

Daily News editor Ayanda Mdluli said the issue was one of public interest and media freedom. He said the document was obtained legitimately.

“If there are certain leaders in the ANC who are working with and have links with the CIA, the people of South Africa have a right to know. The Daily News is acting in the public interest.

When you look at the history of how certain powerful countries have meddled in the affairs of other African states, the results have always been disastrous.

Published Nov 5, 2022

Below are excerpts.

For decades, stories have been told about foreign governments conducting clandestine intelligence operations to gain access, spy, and influence the policy direction of other countries.

In the case of South Africa, the United States has been found wanting as an intelligence report about alleged US efforts to gather intelligence about South Africa’s ruling African National Congress (ANC) party was leaked to Independent Media journalist Thabo Makwakwa.

The report was dated November 5, 2020, titled “Top secret: US interest in ANC party dynamics” and commissioned by the US intelligence operating at the country’s offices in Pretoria.

Historical Background: The emergence of the Secret Report

On December 2021, the Daily News attempted to finally bring to light the involvement of the US government in working with certain prominent ANC leaders to drive the US interests within the ruling party.

This was after a series of engagements between Makwakwa who was investigating the matter, the US embassy, and the South African State Security (SSA) which had received the intelligence report from the US intelligence before it was leaked to Makwakwa and other media houses not linked to Independent Media.

In early December, a highly placed source within the State Security gave Makwakwa the intelligence report and also disclosed that the report had already been leaked to other media outlets.

In an attempt to verify the document, Makwakwa hit the ground running and enquired with the ANC, US consulate, SSA, and the Presidency.

Also on the same day at 12.28pm Makwakwa addressed an email to Mava Scott from the SSA with the report appended. On December 21, 2021 at 7.58am, having had no response from Scott, Makwakwa followed up via WhatsApp and made two calls to Scott to no answer.

Eventually, Scott contacted Makwakwa and demanded to know who leaked the report. Contrary to what the US had said denying knowledge of the report, Scott stated that this was a classified document and that whoever had leaked the document would be arrested.

Court battle: SSA V Thabo Makwakwa and Independent Media

Following the intensive engagements with all the parties who were made aware that a story would be published on December 23, 2021 - On December 22, 2021, Makwakwa posted a tweet that was “sensitising readers about a shocking leak that was to be published”, the minister launched the urgent, ex parte (without notice to the other side), application and obtained an interim interdict barring publication in the interests of state security.

At 11.20pm Makwakwa was contacted by Advocate Ntopane Mashabela and reported to him that a court interdict had been granted in his absence prohibiting the publication of the report. This was done without notice of the hearing.

Court Hearing: SSA V Makwakwa & the Independent Media

The minister had argued that the report was classified as a secret because it contained allegations regarding the interaction and the nature of the working relationship between the US and SSA, “the disclosure of which can disrupt the effective execution of information or operational planning”.

“Senior Zulu Prince close to King Misuzulu KaZwelithini assassinated in Nongoma”

https://www.iol.co.za/news/south-africa/kwazulu-natal/senior-zulu-prince-close-to-king-misuzulu-kazwelithini-assassinated-in-nongoma-879ed145-4237-4572-8923-db960ea70f08

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 25, 2022

Durban - Another senior member of the Zulu royal family close to King Misuzulu KaZwelithini and pillar of his reign has been assassinated.

Prince Mbongiseni Milton Muntukaphiwana (MMM) Zulu was among those who helped King Misuzulu to thwart a failed bid by Prince Simakade to take over the Zulu throne after the passing of King Goodwill Zwelithini in March last year.

Although details around his death are still sketchy and there is no official information from the royal office, IOL understands that he was shot dead around 6pm near the politically volatile town of Nongoma in northern KwaZulu-Natal.

He died on the scene while his bodyguard died upon arrival in one of the hospitals within Nongoma.

Known as Triple M or Gudlane or Nandos to those who studied with him at the University of Zululand (Ongoye), Prince Mbongiseni is a former IFP MP and he died while he was a councillor of the same party in the Zululand district municipality.

They said he didn’t bask in his failures or glory and he closely liaised with King Mswati III of Eswatini in helping King Misuzulu to adapt to his role of leading the Zulu nation.

When the then Prince Misuzulu KaZwelithini was to be unveiled as the king at the memorial service of the late Queen Mantfombi (King Misuzulu’s mother) in May last year, he undertook a dangerous mission.

He carefully organised the Zulu regiments and royal family members that showed force even before other contenders could do so.

In September this year, he was among those who came out to chase Prince Simakade’s spokesperson, Prince Mandlakapheli who was addressing the media outside eNyokeni palace ahead of the reed dance which was held under heightened security following threats of bloodshed.

On the following day, during the reed dance ceremony, Prince Mbongiseni went on to be one of the programme directors for the reed dance (Umkhosi Womhlanga).

Shortly after that ceremony, Dr Dumisani Khumalo, a close confidant of King Misuzulu KaZwelithini was assassinated upon arrival at his home in Nongoma.

No arrest has been made for Khumalo’s arrest and his family is still demanding justice.

A month later, a headman (Induna) of the Osuthu area (where most palaces are located), Cuphisa Ntuli was gunned down in the town of Nongoma.

During the assassination, three other people were shot dead by a gunman who later escaped and has not been arrested.

“‘Wave of crime is sweeping through the country’ – 79 People are killed every day”

https://southafricatoday.net/south-africa-news/wave-of-crime-is-sweeping-through-the-country-79-people-are-killed-every-day/

November 24, 2022

The police’s latest crime statistics show that a wave of crime is sweeping through the country. All categories of crime sharply increased, compared to the same period last year.

The figures for the second financial quarter of the year (July to September 2022) were released on 23 November 2022.

Within a year, contact and sexual crimes increased with, on average, 14,75% while there was also a sharp increase in the feared trio crimes.

The trio crimes include robbery with aggravating circumstances or armed robbery (up by 22% compared to 2021), robberies at residential premises (8,4%) and carjackings (23,6%).

Although there was a sharp increase in all crime categories, the greatest spikes were in robbery (25%), robbery with aggravating circumstances (22%), attempted sexual offences (34%) and carjackings (23,6%).

Truck-jackings increased most sharply with 36,8%.

These figures almost overshadow the increase of 13,6% in murder, which makes it the highest recorded murder rate since 2011.

Over the last three years, murders in South Africa increased from 5 107 (July to September 2020) to 6 163 (2021) and now to 7 004.

Presently, 12 people out of every 100 000 of the population are killed. That is 79 people per day out of a population of 60 million.

The murder rate for the last two quarters of this year already stands at a staggering 13 428. It means there is a good chance that more than 26 000 murders will be recorded for this financial year.

“Patricia Mashale and Adv Dan Teffo on Police corruption in the Free State. Aletheia Dialogue #11” (Posted February 28, 2022) - https://youtu.be/2oJEWzKy6TY

“‘If I DIE, arrest Ramaphosa for my murder’ – SAPS whistleblower [Patricia Morgan-Mashale]” – “Her purported evidence implicates Cyril Ramaphosa AND Bheki Cele”

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/breaking-saps-whistleblower-ramaphosa-implicated-monday-7-november/

07-11-2022 17:21

A whistleblower has dropped a number of bombshell claims over the weekend – and Cyril Ramaphosa isn’t sitting comfortably.

Crikey. A one-time senior SAPS official says she was recently targeted by hitmen, after the whistleblower threatened to go public with some damning information about corruption within the police force. Her purported evidence implicates Cyril Ramaphosa AND Bheki Cele.

SAPS WHISTLEBLOWER ACCUSED GOVERNMENT OF ‘TRYING TO KILL HER’

Patricia Morgan-Mashale claims to be sitting on a number of explosive bombshells. According to the whistleblower, two high-ranking cops – including a serving general – are actually foreign nationals. That, in her words, is the tip of a very corrupt iceberg…

Specific cases of nepotism, multi-million rand fraud, and forgery have been raised by PMM. Her full account is truly something to behold, https://www.facebook.com/patricia.morganmashale. However, in the early hours of Sunday morning, she went public with the details – after allegedly surviving an assassination attempt.

“This evening, I was chased by a black Ford Ranger. It was like an action movie. I was so shocked I couldn’t even drive to a police station. I felt like going there would also get me killed. It felt like I was a hunted animal. This wasn’t ordinary criminals, it was from the government.”

“They knew I was coming on the show this evening. When I first blew the whistle on SAPS corruption, there was another attempt on my life. I had to go into hiding. They will not let me apply for protection. My location has already been compromised.” | Patricia Morgan-Mashale

PATRICIA MORGAN-MASHALE IMPLICATES PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA

It is Morgan-Mashale’s firm belief that this attempt to silence her came from the very top. Given that Cyril Ramaphosa is implicated in some of the accusations – and that no formal protection has been forthcoming – the whistleblower says the president ‘should be arrested’ if she is murdered.

• We have a feeling this story won’t just disappear for the ANC leader, either…

“Hit men tried to kill me tonight and we both know who is behind this second attempt on my life. Let me put it on record now for the whole world to know… I am a whsitle-blower, who has information about massive corruption at SAPS. I have already applied for protection.”

“Should anything happen to me, please put it right in front of the door of Mr Cyril Ramaphosa. Arrest him and charge him with my murder because he will be an accomplice in my assassination. If I die, your political ambitions dies with me. I will keep on exposing you.”

“President Ramaphosa, do your worst. I am not dependent on you for political survival. I took an oath of office to blow the whistle on corruption and come hell or high water. Your silence is an indication that you are also compromised. Soon, I will have the proof.” | Patricia Morgan-Mashale

Even though Dis-Chem has reversed its decision to ‘stop hiring white workers’, the company is still riding out the financial backlash.

Big news for ‘go woke, go broke’ enthusiasts this week: It is reported that Dis-Chem’s plummeting share price has lost the company almost R2 billion over the past few weeks. A letter published by their CEO, which discouraged the hiring of white workers, has allegedly sparked the collapse.

Although Dis-Chem have backtracked on their initial hiring strategy, it would appear that most of the damage has been done. Millions of concerned citizens were left outraged by a so-called ‘moratorium’ on employing more white workers, in order to comply with BBBEE laws.

A number of high-profile South Africans have vowed to never set foot in Dis-Chem again. Steve Hofmeyr made headlines on Monday, when he posted a picture of his ‘last ever prescription‘ from the pharmaceutical giants. It seems this exodus is having a profound impact…

HOW MUCH MONEY HAS DIS-CHEM LOST THIS MONTH?

A report from Daily Investor has translated the recent share price losses into a monetary value. They believe that the financial damage has been catastrophic for Dis-Chem. Whichever way you look at it, things aren’t looking too bright for the retailer:

• Dis-Chem’s share price is now 11% LOWER than it was six months ago.

• Despite an initial recovery, stock has dropped again by roughly 10% since the first day of November.

• Dis-Chem recorded a strong first-half performance in 2022, but things are now heading downhill.

• The share price is actually 1.61% WORSE than it was five years ago.

• Their figures haven’t been this low since the last hard lockdown of the COVID-19 pandemic (July 2021).

• Experts now estimate that almost R2 billion has been wiped-off the share price.

SHARE PRICE SHOWS MAJOR ‘WEALTH DESTRUCTION’ AFTER WHITE WORKERS LETTER

What is even more concerning for Dis-Chem is that this may not even be the worst of it all. According to the report, there’s a possibility that they could lose ‘significantly more’ in the weeks to come. What a difference one letter can make, hey?

“Dis-Chem’s share price fell by almost 7% over the last month. The share price decline translates into R1.87 billion of wealth destruction. However, the exact impact of the letter is difficult to measure. It may be significantly more – or less – than R1.87 billion.” | Daily Investor

“South African businessman and Honorary Consul wins entrepreneur of the year in UK” – “helped set up the COVID testing infrastructure in the UK”

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/south-african-businessman-and-honorary-consul-wins-entrepreneur-of-the-year-in-uk/

25-11-2022

A South African businessman who helped set up the COVID testing infrastructure in the UK to bring back sport and international travel during the pandemic, has won Entrepreneur of the Year

A South African businessman who helped to set up the COVID testing infrastructure in the UK to bring back major sport and international travel during the pandemic, has won Entrepreneur of the Year.

Johannesburg-born Avi Lasarow, who is Chief Executive of Prenetics EMEA Ltd and lives in the UK with his wife Kelly, a keen equestrian and their children, won the award at the Kent Invicta Chamber Business Awards.

Prenetics EMEA Ltd is part of a major global diagnostics and genetic testing company with the mission to bring health closer to millions of people globally and decentralise healthcare.

The company, which is registered in Orpington in Kent, provided COVID testing for English football, British Boxing and the English Test Cricket for the ECB. Avi also set up a state-of-the-art laboratory on the Greenwich Peninsula to provide faster results for consumers.

Prenetics carried out more than twenty million COVID tests worldwide and provided testing at all major UK airports. It has operations across nine locations, including the UK, Hong Kong, India, South Africa, and Southeast Asia and successfully listed on the Nasdaq this May with a valuation of $1.3b.

Avi, who is also an Honorary Consul for trade between South Africa and the UK, worked with the UK Government’s Department for Health and Social Care and the Competition and Markets Authority to clampdown on rogue COVID testers that were offering misleadingly cheap prices for tests that proved not to be available.

He also was invited to become a founding member of the Confederation of British Industry’s Health Council (CBI) – a new forum for business, government and civil society to improve health outcomes across the UK.

Avi also sits on the NHS England Innovation’s new Diagnostic Transformation Programme Industry Advisory Group, advising the National Health Service on the future needs and demands for testing.

Avi previously launched DNAFit, one of the first companies to pioneer “at home” genetic testing widely available in a direct-to-consumer setting. DNAFit achieved various accolades in the UK including two coveted Queen’s Awards for Business in 2018, while also attracting investment and endorsement from former England and Manchester United defender, Rio Ferdinand. It was then acquired by Prenetics.

Commenting on the award win, Avi said: “It’s a great honour to receive this award.

“Realising success through entrepreneurship is not easy. It takes resilience, an exceptional team and a determination to make every single day count. Along my own journey I have encountered countless setbacks and challenges but the highs have always overstepped the lows.

“I’m so grateful for the team at Prenetics. We are a chain made of the strongest links and are gathering real pace and momentum in our pursuit to positively impact the health and lives of millions of people in the years ahead. There is absolutely no doubt that the best of Prenetics is yet to come.

“As we all have to cope with the post COVID business landscape, I hope to play my part in supporting tech companies in South Africa and the UK. As the Chancellor said in his Autumn Statement, the life sciences sector is a huge area of growth for the UK, and I’d like to mentor other start-ups in South Africa and the UK as they set out on the journey to success.”

“A Diamond Is Forever: Mandela Triumphs, Buthelezi and de Klerk Survive, and ANC on the U.S. Payroll” – Part 1

Original Article: How the CIA defeated Apartheid & placed the ANC in power

Date Posted: Thursday 08-Mar-2007

[This is the most important article I found on the web in my more than 5 years on the web. The original discovery was by a military friend of mine overseas. He found the book, and then later, I found this article.

An alert reader in the UK found this. This article is the follow on by Dr Cummings to his book, "The Pied Piper" (1985).

Dr Cummings was a CIA agent in the Middle East. This is an extremely important article and it explains what went on behind the scenes in this country. Jan]

From International Journal of Intelligence and Counterintelligence, Summer 1995:

by Richard Cummings

Nelson Mandela is the president of South Africa, an event of monumental significance in world history. This great personal triumph is for him a vindication of his struggle. But now that the South African elections are long past, the record must be set straight about what really happened and why. The press has concealed as much as it reported; ideologues of all stripes have rushed around to rationalize their hypocrisies, and American politicians have been spreading around largesse as if the money were their own. That the results were so perfect, historically so symmetrical, is rather remarkable.

But, those with power, or who are connected to it, do not want the facts about the funding of the election to be known because it would reveal a pattern of deception and control, both to influence the outcome and to moderate the African National Congress. And those on the radical left don't want it known that the ANC has compromised itself by joining the list of organizations taking money from the United States, because they think it will hurt the cause of revolution. Everyone involved, across the ideological spectrum, has therefore joined in a kind of game to cloud the minds of outside observers.

Most hypocritical perhaps was the attempt to make a devil out of Chief Mangosuthu Buthelezi by characterizing him as the tool of the oppressors and an obstructionist in the transition to democracy. His anomalous situation in post-apartheid South Africa led to suggestions that he was an enemy of democracy, and the cause of dissension that led to violence in an attempt to disrupt the electoral process that black South Africans struggled for decades to achieve. Chairman of the Inkatha Freedom Party and chief minister of KwaZulu, this prince and descendant of Shaka Zulu was then cast in the role of villain and reactionary. But it was not always so.

“A Diamond Is Forever: Mandela Triumphs, Buthelezi and de Klerk Survive, and ANC on the U.S. Payroll” – Part 2

http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

http://web.archive.org/web/20080320232050/http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

ANC and the CP

The triumph of Nelson Mandela and the African National Congress in South Africa was, for many years, viewed in certain circles as an extremely undesirable result. During the Cold War, the power of the South African Communist Party in the ANC made the ANC unacceptable as a holder of power in a post-apartheid South Africa. Yet, because apartheid and the white supremacist Nationalist Party were anathema to the rest of Africa, and because white racism fueled the sentiments for communism among the black majority in South Africa, a reliable black alternative to the ANC became essential. As Harry Rositzke, the Central Intelligence Agency station chief in New Delhi from 1957 to 1962, and coordinator of operations against Communist parties abroad from 1962 until his retirement from the CIA in 1970, wrote in 1977: "In Africa, an area of primitive, unstable states, Soviet influence is substantial in Somalia, Guinea, Nigeria, and Angola. The support of black independence movements against the Rhodesian and South African governments may extend that influence. The training of five thousand African students each year in the Soviet and East European universities is a direct investment in the future leadership of a largely illiterate continent."1 Noting the "Chinese competition the Soviets face in … the South Africa liberation movements," Rositzke argued candidly for covert action in the Third World: "Do we try to make a deal with the leftists – covertly at least to start? Do we take any covert political action to ensure the continued supply of chrome from a black Rhodesia that threatens to boycott its sale to the United States if we do not withdraw our investments in South Africa? However unlikely these scenarios, we cannot forecast what will happen in the economic world to threaten our prosperity."2

These concerns led to a policy that did not distinguish between anti-communism and opposition to apartheid. Indeed, they became synonymous in South Africa as that policy came to a head in the Reagan administration. As Gregory Treverton has observed:

"For the Reagan administration, the intended signal was anti-communism. For it, there was nothing incompatible about supporting anti-communism in Angola and anti-apartheid in South Africa."3

United States anti-apartheid policy was always primarily a tool of its anti-communist policy. And that anti-communist policy was directly related to the preservation of American "prosperity" and economic self-interest, as Rositzke explained. To this end, the CIA funneled money into Africa Bureau, a London-based anti-apartheid group headed by the Rev. Michael Scott, an Anglican priest dedicated to ameliorating the harsh apartheid policies of South Africa in South West Africa. Dan Schecter, Michael Ansara, and David Kolodney wrote in 1970, "The United States remains involved in channeling money to various factions within southern-African liberation movements, hoping, of course, to mold them in pro-Western directions."4

“A Diamond Is Forever: Mandela Triumphs, Buthelezi and de Klerk Survive, and ANC on the U.S. Payroll” – Part 3

http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

http://web.archive.org/web/20080320232050/http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

Long before the Reagan administration, white liberals in the United States and South Africa understood the threat of communism in South Africa and took action, in concert with the CIA, to undermine that threat, even if this delayed, by necessity, the end of apartheid. And ultimately, Buthelezi became a key figure in that effort.

The leading American liberal politician to first become actively involved in the anti-apartheid movement was then United States Senator Hubert Humphrey (D., Minnesota). In 1960, a press agency, International Features Service, was established, largely to disseminate the thoughts of Senator Humphrey to the people of the Third World, including Africa. International Features was quickly reorganized as a not-for-profit organization, Peace for Freedom, liberally supported with CIA funds through the International Development Foundation and the Price Fund.5 Another organization launched with CIA assistance was the United States-South Africa Leadership Exchange Program (USSALEP) when the African-American Institute, a CIA conduit, agreed to add USSALEP to its existing projects.6 A key functional area of USSALEP was, and is, "flexible independent exchanges, providing opportunities for leaders in any variety of fields to confer with colleagues."7 In 1983, Harris Wofford, later a U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania, and then, as now, a member of the management committee of USSALEP, stated that Buthelezi deserved support because he had stayed in South Africa, unlike leaders of the ANC, and had not engaged in violence.8 Wofford made it very clear that he was speaking not only for himself, but for his organization. Wofford served as President Kennedy's special representative to Africa from 1962 to 1964 before he became associate director of the Peace Corps. The implication was clear: Buthelezi was with the West, but Mandela, who often espoused pro-South African Communist Party sentiments, was not. And a major non-governmental backer of USSALEP was AMAX, the American mining giant, on whose board have served former Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter.

The Lowenstein Intervention

In 1959, Allard Lowenstein, then a foreign policy aide to Senator Humphrey, traveled to South Africa and South West Africa to gather data on the effects of apartheid in both territories. During the course of this trip, Lowenstein was approached by the CIA in South Africa and requested to smuggle out of South Africa a "Cape colored" student, Hans Beukes, a member of the anti-SWAPO Herero tribe from Rehoboth, South West Africa.9 Beukes would later be accused of subverting SWAPO when it expelled him in 1976.10 Lowenstein would later write Brutal Mandate, a book on his South African experience. A leading American liberal who had served as president of the National Students Association and civil rights activist, Lowenstein was recruited to the CIA in 1962 as an expert on southern Africa.11 From 1962 to 1967, Lowenstein traveled to that part of the continent and had contacts with various southern African personalities, both in Africa and the United States, providing the agency with his assessment of their political leanings, and their reliability.

The ANC had taken up armed struggle on 16 December 1961 with the founding by Nelson Mandela of Umkhonto We Sizwe, "Spear of the Nation," and with its Communist support, was becoming a threat. Mandela was a cult figure of the Left who had enormous appeal. Until his capture, his ability to elude the police had made him a folk hero. In the spring of 1962, Lowenstein was contacted by both the American Committee on Africa and the CIA-supported American Society for African Culture, which were joining forces for a demonstration and protest march on behalf of Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, and the seven others who had been arrested by the South African police when the ANC underground headquarters was discovered. While the United States did not want Mandela in power, neither did it want him martyred. The arrested leaders were on trial and faced the possibility of the death penalty, which in South Africa was administered by hanging. Because of the organized pressure, Mandela and Sisulu were not executed but sentenced to life in prison, with Mandela remaining on Robben Island as the preeminent figure in the African National Congress. After the day to day operations of the ANC passed to Mandela's far less charismatic law partner, Oliver Tambo, who had fled to Zambia, the ANC was seemingly neutralized without the United States to blame.

http://web.archive.org/web/20080320232050/http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

Other Choices

The CIA was looking for alternatives to the ANC. To the ANC's left, the CIA directed money to the ultra-black nationalist Pan Africanist Congress (PAC) which had organized the demonstration, from which the ANC abstained, that led to the Sharpeville massacre in the spring of 1960.12 As early as 1961, Mandela had discounted the Pan Africanist Congress because, he asserted, "there is no doubt in my mind that they preached an extreme form of racialism."13 Mandela believed the abandonment of non-violence and the introduction of the use of force to be justified because, "[N]o leader is going out to say we want peaceful discussions because the government is making that kind of talk senseless. Instead of getting a favorable response, the government is more arrogant. The African reaction can only be a show of force." Notes of the secret interview given by Mandela to Patrick O'Donovan were provided to Allard Lowenstein in London by Mary Benson, an anti-apartheid activist.14

To rival Spear of the Nation, which had begun a campaign of sabotage against "the symbols of apartheid" by staging rocket attacks against police stations, the PAC launched Poqo, a mass movement modeled on the Mau Mau in Kenya. Claiming a membership of 150,000, it engaged in acts of terrorism. Although it never achieved the strength of the ANC, it did come back to haunt South African politics by initially refusing to take part in the first one-person, one-vote non-racial elections in the country's history. Having become the CIA's Frankenstein's monster, the Pan Africanist Congress ceased to be an acceptable alternative to Mandela and the ANC, but it continued to pose a sufficient threat to possibly disrupt the electoral process.

Throughout the 1960s, Lowenstein made considerable use of his expertise on revolutionary movements in southern Africa in ways that would have an important impact on U.S. policy. From his vantage point in the intelligence community, he argued for an anti-Communist alternative on the Left, becoming a key figure, in the parlance of the agency, of the "good wing" of the CIA. As a CIA operative once described this element in the agency to Harris Wofford, "If you only knew what we're really doing, the liberals and the leftists, the democratic leftists, what we're supporting around the world, you'd see that we represented the 'good wing' in the CIA."15 And in his pursuit of an anti-Communist left alternative in South Africa, while he acknowledged that the blacks had ample reason to resort to violence, Lowenstein faulted the ANC, as did the agency, on the grounds that it was engaging in armed struggle with support from the Soviet Union and the People's Republic of China, not to mention its alliance with the South African Communist Party.16 In his 1966 [the year South African Prime Minister, HF Verwoerd, was assassinated] swing through southern Africa, Lowenstein conferred with representatives of the ANC in Dar es Salaam, whose headquarters in which they met featured a large portrait of Mao Zedong. When Lowenstein asked them how he could be of help, the black South Africans told him that what they needed was money for arms. They were engaged in armed struggle and wanted weapons, not the limited support Lowenstein had provided in the past, and which China had eclipsed. At this point, Lowenstein concluded that the ANC was unreliable and uncontrollable and therefore totally unacceptable.17 But as the entire Cold War liberal structure began to come apart during the Vietnam war, Lowenstein turned his efforts to getting rid of President Lyndon Johnson and to replacing him with Senator Robert F. Kennedy (D., New York) and to his own political career, winning election to Congress as a Democrat from New York in 1968. He would not return to the South African scene until the late 1970s, when, following a stint as one of President Carter's ambassadors to the United Nations, he traveled extensively in southern Africa at the behest of the CIA and Harry Oppenheimer, scion of the South African DeBeers and Anglo-American gold mining and diamond empire. In the interim, the fruitless search for an alternative political group to the ANC continued as violence escalated in South Africa, and it become increasingly threatened by the possibility of a revolution led by the South African Communist Party and the ANC.

http://web.archive.org/web/20080320232050/http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

Zulu Rising

During this period the fortunes of Buthelezi began to rise. Although in the pay of the South African government as chief minister of the KwaZulu government, Buthelezi steadfastly refused to permit KwaZulu to be turned into a "homeland." To do so would have constituted an acceptance of the government's apartheid policies. This posture of at least nominal independence, as well as his identification with the mythic Zulu people led Buthelezi to be able to play both sides with consummate skill. He was never a sycophant to the National Party, which had formalized a system of total racial segregation, and which had controlled South Africa since 1948, when the old United Party of Jan Smuts had been defeated. Buthelezi appealed to those who never had any use for white liberals like Helen Suzman, whose Liberal party had been outlawed, and who maintained a life of luxury in the midst of a system she purported to detest. As the cast of "Wait A Minim," the South African musical comedy mocked, "the only thing the liberals hate more than apartheid is the blacks."

Buthelezi, highly intelligent and articulate, played the role of the radical conservative, to the increasing attention of the United States. Capable of appearing fiercely traditional in tribal dress one minute, and handsome and immaculate in a Saville Row suit the next, Buthelezi began to capture the imagination of the power brokers. He not only spoke all the languages of South Africa, he seemed to speak to the economic and political needs of the country, with its astonishing diversity, as well. There was a vacuum and he appeared to be the only player capable of filling it. With Buthelezi and his ideas for a federal republic of South Africa, investment would be safe, and whites and blacks could be placated. Even his appeal to royalty, his professed loyalty to the King of the Zulus, Goodwill Zwelethini (also his nephew), impressed whites who sought modest change in the context of stability, and blacks, for whom royalty had always held a certain attraction as a dimension of African pride. If a black African leader for South Africa could have been created by the Reagan administration, it would have been Buthelezi. With Ronald Reagan in the White House and William Casey at CIA, the "good wing" would be out and the hard line in. There was no such thing as a Left alternative to communism in this ideology, only a Right alternative that was indeed "right." Under Reagan, Buthelezi would fit the mold, as Jonas Savimbi did in Angola, where South Africa and the CIA together aided his efforts against the leftist government, with its pro-Soviet sympathies.

Indeed, conservatives worldwide began to support Buthelezi, with particular support coming, according to a former U.S. "Africa hand," from Germany through such conservative semi-political foundations as the Adenauer Schiftung and the Ebert Schiftung, much in the manner that DCI Casey was able to get other countries such as Saudi Arabia to aid the contras in Nicaragua.18 According to this source, Buthelezi had been promised a "Greater Natal" by hard-line apartheid Prime Minister P.W. Botha, who offered him the possibility of having white areas such as Durban in his power base. With such an increase in his domain, were an election to happen, he would be able to command at least the five percent that was ultimately established as a basis for a seat in the cabinet. Along with white representation in the cabinet, he would be a sufficient force to moderate the polices of a leftist government under Mandela, and block either nationalizations or confiscatory tax policies.19 But before this scenario began to take hold, the liberals gave it one more shot to find an alternative to Mandela and the ANC who would not be so conservative as to alienate the majority of blacks, who might still turn to the far left. At this point in the 1970s, Allard Lowenstein once again entered the scene, with Buthelezi playing to both liberal and conservative factions.

“A Diamond Is Forever: Mandela Triumphs, Buthelezi and de Klerk Survive, and ANC on the U.S. Payroll” – Part 6

http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

http://web.archive.org/web/20080320232050/http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

According to South Africa expert Professor William Foltz of Yale University, Buthelezi was being "courted by South African big business and some American corporations" during the 1970s.20 He mentioned AMAX, the mining giant with extensive South African holdings that was also a USSALEP backer through its AMAX Foundation, as one of these. The effort to approach Buthelezi, Foltz explains, was led not by American business interests, but by the liberal part of South African industry, particularly Harry Oppenheimer, whose Ernest Oppenheimer Memorial Trust, the charitable arm of Anglo-American, was also backing USSALEP; Helen Suzman; and Clive Menell, chair of Anglovaal Holdings, Ltd., a mining giant. Menell lives across the street from Oppenheimer in South Africa, and entertained Buthelezi in his home in the presence of Professor Foltz. Foltz explains that Buthelezi's refusal to let KwaZulu be a homeland made him attractive to the Oppenheimer crowd, as he could not be seen as a tool of apartheid. Although highly ambitious and sensitive to slights, real or apparent, Buthelezi was regarded by his advocates as a "reasonable and interesting alternative, at least a serious player." So Wofford was right. USSALEP, launched with the CIA's help and passed along to power South African and American corporate interests, could proclaim by 1980 that it "receives no funding, direct or indirect, from the United States, South Africa, or any other government," was now behind Buthelezi, seeing nowhere else to go.

Lowenstein Redux

By the mid 1970s, the exploitation of uranium in South West Africa [now Namibia] had made South Africa's role there a major international issue. The large block of nonwhite Third World countries pressed for South West Africa's independence. In April 1975, Allard Lowenstein attended a key symposium on "The Outlook for Southern Africa," which was backed by the Johnson Foundation. Funded by USSALEP and the Johnson and Johnson pharmaceutical company, the meeting was held at the Johnson Wingspread conference facility in Wisconsin. The symposium explored ways to prevent the worst from happening from the point of view of the American, South Africa, and British companies that invested heavily there. South Africa was described as "the Saudi Arabia of minerals," and South West Africa had once again become vitally important to the West because of Britain's dependence upon it for uranium.21 Rio Tinto Zinc, a multinational mining company based in Britain, was exploiting the Rossing mine, the world's largest single source of uranium.

Lowenstein's presentation at the Wingspread symposium was a classic "good wing" analysis. Will we identify with the oppressed people, including those of South Africa? Because Africans were finding that the only way to produce change was through violence, this was playing "into the hands of the Soviet Union and China," who were providing money and training which were, in fact, producing results. Lowenstein asked the rhetorical question and tried to answer it: "Can we influence Africans to accommodate their demands in less violent ways? Only if we pressure for the necessary reforms at an acceptable pace. This means finding ways for South Africa to get out of Namibia and Rhodesia, to permit Black regimes to develop in both states. Instead of 'buffer states' there might emerge on the border of South Africa the appearance of privileged sanctuaries so that the pressure for change within South Africa would be stepped up. As the international dimensions proceed, they are the priority; the domestic ones should follow. Eventually, changes within South Africa will have to occur. If they do not come nonviolently and in a rapid, evolutionary way, they will be forced with sabotage, violence and warfare."22

“A Diamond Is Forever: Mandela Triumphs, Buthelezi and de Klerk Survive, and ANC on the U.S. Payroll” – Part 7

http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

http://web.archive.org/web/20080320232050/http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

At the United Nations, he clashed with U.S. Ambassador Andrew Young over U.S. policy in Zimbabwe/Rhodesia. Lowenstein was strongly opposed to Robert Mugabe and wanted a role for white liberals. He also visited South Africa where he held lengthy meetings with young Afrikaner Nationalists. After his U.N. service, Lowenstein came back in from the cold. His involvement with the powerful white liberals of South Africa and his relationship with Frank Carlucci, appointed deputy director of the CIA by President Carter (and who had been stationed in South Africa when Lowenstein traveled there in 1959), enabled him to continue his work in southern Africa in the summer of 1979.

This vitally important trip was financed by Anglo-American, which paid Lowenstein $7,000 for his services, $1,000 to his aide, Mark Childress, and $1,000 to Lowenstein' s secretary. Provided for the summer's expedition were a comfortable house in Johannesburg, with recreational facilities and domestic servants, and full transportation, including return air fares on the Concorde for Lowenstein, Lowenstein's three children and Childress. All of this was arranged by Hank Slack, the American Director of Anglo-American and the former son-in-law of Harry Oppenheimer.23 Lowenstein was working closely with Deputy CIA Director Carlucci, who stated categorically that "Lowenstein would report to me."24 And there was much to report.

Lowenstein first consulted with Theo-Ben Gurirab of SWAPO, at SWAPO headquarters in New York City, then departed for South Africa. There he held meetings with Buthelezi, Harry Oppenheimer, Helen Suzman, South African Foreign Minister Pik Botha, and P.W. Botha, the South African Prime Minister. He also met with Mandela, still incarcerated on Robben Island.25 Richard Moose, Carter's Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, told Sam Adams, formerly of CIA, that Lowenstein was talking to "a lot of opposition groups."26 What Lowenstein was doing was laying the groundwork for a flexible American policy in South Africa, in alliance with the wealthy South African white liberals and the "verlicht" Afrikaner Nationalists, to dismantle the structure of apartheid without Marxist revolution. Lowenstein's role in this venture was cut short when he was shot to death in 1980 by Dennis Sweeney, a former recruit in the civil rights movement in Mississippi, but the legacy of his involvement remained a potent one. Carlucci, who admired Lowenstein and was greatly influenced by him, shared Lowenstein's assessment that the problems of South Africa could be "worked out."27 And Buthelezi had good reason to believe that he was, at the very least, part of the solution and not the problem.

U.S. Aid

With the election of Ronald Reagan to the presidency in 1980, United States and South African intelligence (BOSS, the South African CIA) increased cooperation on behalf of Jonas Savimbi in Angola. The CIA authorized $15 million for Savimbi's UNITA.28 In South Africa, with German money coming to him, Buthelezi was fast becoming the darling of American conservatives, including Jeane Kirkpatrick, Reagan's Ambassador to the United Nations, as a "sound anti-Communist alternative."29 The Washington Times and the Wall Street Journal took up his cause. But, according to Professor Foltz, there was a significant split in the Reagan administration. Reagan's Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, Chester Crocker [later became director of MINORCO], was "opposed to Buthelezi" and "playing a much more complicated game."30 Foltz explains that Crocker thought it wise "not to see any single person as the answer."31 Foltz also credits the British Ambassador to South Africa at that time, Sir Robin Renwick, as being "highly skillful" in his efforts to prevent violence and bring about a peaceful solution in South Africa. (Renwick is generally acknowledged with having obtained Mandela's release from prison, a task made easier by the fact that his government had not imposed sanctions on South Africa, thereby giving it some leverage with the white regime in Pretoria.) But he argues that the "whole situation was sliding rapidly" and that the "logic" of the Reagan administration's policy was "coming apart."32

“A Diamond Is Forever: Mandela Triumphs, Buthelezi and de Klerk Survive, and ANC on the U.S. Payroll” – Part 8

http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

http://web.archive.org/web/20080320232050/http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

The support of American industrial interests for Buthelezi began to diminish when it appeared that he might not be able to deliver in the face of enormous public support for Mandela. The final push, Foltz explains, was the 1986 U.S. sanctions legislation, which altered the situation irrevocably. Now a legend among American blacks as a symbol of the triumph through struggle over apartheid, Nelson Mandela could no longer be shunted aside. The ANC had become the ultimate force in South Africa, and Buthelezi, with his base limited to the Zulus, was without a national organization capable of overcoming it. But, with financial support still coming to him from Germany, Buthelezi was, according to Foltz, able to retain the services of the powerful Washington public relations firm, Black, Manafort. Buthelezi and his people continued to use the rhetoric of the Cold War, "not about the ANC but the ANC and the Communists."33 But the mining companies were no longer interested and Buthelezi's support was limited to "the fast buck people in Natal."34 And while Buthelezi might, at one point, have been able to get the 5 percent needed for a cabinet position, the "old Africa hand" argued (incorrectly, it turned out) that Buthelezi would be "hard pressed" to carry the Zulu vote. Because the young Zulus are now more urban than rural, and identify increasingly with the ANC, he maintained, Buthelezi' s power base was substantially eroded, notwithstanding continued German support and support from private American conservative groups.35 Foltz puts it more forcefully: "He [Buthelezi] is playing a destructive and scandalous role now."36 But who was actually paying for that role and, in effect, funding the bloodbath that lasted until Inkatha reentered the elections?

Reenter the United States-South Africa Leadership Exchange Program (USSALEP), by now no longer stating that it does not receive funds from any government directly or indirectly, but indicating overtly that it is funded, in part, by the United States Agency for International Development (AID) and the National Endowment for Democracy (NED). In its 1992 Program Update, in a short note entitled "Transition to Democracy Project," USSALEP proclaims:

The $8,000,000 cooperative agreement, under which subgrants of $4.8 million for the African National Congress (ANC) and $2.6 million for the Inkatha Freedom Party was to be disbursed by September 30, 1992, was extended for an additional 15 months in order to utilize the full amount obligated by USAID. The purpose of the project is to build administration capacity within the ANC and the IFP organizations to enable them to participate more effectively in the negotiations leading to a new constitution and democratic government. Due to the very stringent disbursement conditions (which, for example, eliminated the category of salaries as a permissible expenditure category under the original budgets), coupled with administrative/absorptive capacity limitations of the sub-grantees, only approximately 45 percent of the $7.4 million could be expended during the originally scheduled, 13-month project life.

The monies disbursed to date have been used to: (i) acquire or rent office space to house central and regional staff, (ii) purchase and install computer hardware and software and train personnel needed to establish effective management information systems, and (iii) pay for sundry travel, consulting and workshop expenses relating to the above and to the formulation of policy options and negotiation positions.

USAID and USSALEP are presently in discussion with the subgrantees to identify new areas of expenditure not previously included in their budget proposals. Among those being considered is the critical one encompassing peace initiatives.37

“A Diamond Is Forever: Mandela Triumphs, Buthelezi and de Klerk Survive, and ANC on the U.S. Payroll” – Part 9

http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

http://web.archive.org/web/20080320232050/http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

Hired as project manager of the Transition to Democracy Project was Stanley Kahn, a South African sociology professor on the faculty of both the universities of Witwatersrand and Cape Town. Kahn had served as executive director of the Funda Centre in Diepkloof, Soweto and was the recipient of a USSALEP Alan Pifer Fellowship to visit the United States to "survey the contribution of community colleges to adult education."38 Kahn was later promoted to Director of USSALEP South Africa.

Kahn may be a fine fellow, but it still sounds a lot like "walking around money." And if salaries were being paid to ANC and Inkatha, who was getting the money? Mandela? Buthelezi? And if these groups were getting the money, who decided that more than twice as much should go to the ANC as to Inkatha? Notably, Harris Wofford continued to serve on the Board and Council of USSALEP, which dispensed the funds from the AID budget that Wofford voted for as a senator. His past legal practice has involved major clients in Africa. Apart from this seeming conflict of interest, American taxpayers should be concerned that their money was being used to influence the outcome of an election in a foreign country, however overt this funding might now be. Most of the old players are still there: Harry Oppenheimer, who funds USSALEP through the Anglo-American & DeBeers Chairman's Fund; Clive Menell, chairman of Anglovaal Holdings, Ltd. (contributor and Board and Council member), and an old Buthelezi backer; and Hank Slack, now president and CEO of MINORCO [Part of Anglo-American} in London (contributor and Board and Council member), as well as all the major industrial concerns, American, international and South African, that control the vast mining' interests of South Africa and the rest of its economy. The result of all of this funding of the competing parties? R.W. Johnson, a native of South Africa and a fellow in politics at Magdalen College, Oxford, on leave from Oxford to write about current South Africa and also to serve as national co-director of the Launching Democracy project, a public information service for all South African political parties, sponsored by the Institute for Multi-Party Democracy (one wonders about the source of its funding), observed:

Some of the killing is political: currently the largest set of victims are Inkatha officials killed by the ANC, though the most publicized recent killing was that of Chris Hani, the SACP (Communist) leader, by the white Right [scapegoat]. The Azanian People's Liberation Army, the armed wing of the Pan Africanist Congress, carries out anti-white atrocities from time to time, and, of course, Inkatha takes its vengeance on the ANC with fair regularity.39

As the whites were panicking, a state of emergency was declared in KwaZulu because of the inability of Mandela, Buthelezi, King Goodwill Zwelethini, and de Klerk to come to an agreement on how to resolve the impasse and get Inkatha back into the election process.40 Buthelezi denounced what he described as "a lengthy Machiavellian manipulation commenced, right at the start of our negotiations, with attempts to marginalize our Inkatha Freedom Party."41 If he was referring to the inequitable distribution of the U.S. AID money between the ANC and Inkatha, he certainly made up the difference from the Germans. And how effective giving money to the ANC will be in wooing it from its South African Communist Party ally remains to be seen. Mandela insists the ANC is not Communist, but that it remains loyal to its oldest ally and friend.42 Moreover, the relisting as a USSALEP sponsor of the African American Institute, a CIA conduit in the past that helped launch USSALEP, also means that CIA money still, in all probability, flows covertly to certain organizations in South Africa. The most likely candidate for U.S. assistance was the CIA's old client, the Pan Africanist Congress (whose overt support the ANC would never accept), to keep it in the electoral process and then accept the results. But the amount of money given to the Pan Africanist Congress has surely been miniscule, given its lack of a function at this point of history. The purpose was not to get it votes, but to keep it quiet.

“A Diamond Is Forever: Mandela Triumphs, Buthelezi and de Klerk Survive, and ANC on the U.S. Payroll” – Part 10

http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

http://web.archive.org/web/20080320232050/http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

Educating Voters

After the supposed failure of former Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger (now an international business consultant) and former British Foreign Minister Lord Carrington (who has served on the board of Rio Tinto Zinc, which controls the Rossing uranium mine in Namibia) to bring Buthelezi into the elections, all seemed to be lost.43 But an amazing last minute reprieve was finally achieved, and the elections went forward in the midst of bombings by white extremists. Helping the Independent Election Commission to supervise them to make sure they were "fair" was the South African Fair Elections Fund (SAFE), funded largely by American interests and headed up by the liberal Kennedy loyalist, Theodore Sorensen, who had $7 million at his disposal for "voter education." According to Ian Williams of the New York Observer, "many of those involved in SAFE haven't concealed their hopes for an ANC landslide."44 And while Williams reported AID's funding of both the ANC and Inkatha, he neglected to mention USSALEP, the éminence grise of the whole sordid business. But even with AID funding much of the election, and SAFE providing additional assistance to assure the right kind of acceptable "left" victory, Ronald Brown, President Bill Clinton's man at the Department of Commerce, announced $140 million in aid to South Africa.

A good portion of this will find its way into the pockets of North Carolina academics and their institutions, Duke, Chapel Hill, and North Carolina State. They are participating in the $350 million South African research and manufacturing center to be built in Muizenberg, a suburb of Cape Town. The project has the backing of the ANC.45 This may help explain why conservative, anti-Communist Senator Jesse Helms (Rep., North Carolina) has failed to denounce the U.S. AID funding of the Communist-backed ANC – he makes an unlikely pair with Harris Wofford. Actually, the only institution that should cry fraud is North Carolina's predominantly black university, Northern Carolina A&T;, Jesse Jackson's alma mater, which has mysteriously been excluded from the AID boondoggle.

The ANC and Buthelezi both shouted "fraud" as the election came to a close. The one party that began to pick up surprising support in the election's final hours was the old bastion of white supremacy, the National Party. It appealed to the "colored" vote, those of mixed race who tend to be better educated and own property, and to conservative blacks. F.W. de Klerk, holding black babies, managed to remind South Africans of every color that "majority rule" on the African continent can be less than paradise. Rwanda, Somalia, Angola, Zaire, and the Sudan are shattering reminders of the chaos so often associated with post-colonial "liberation." He managed to do the impossible: prevent the ANC from getting the two thirds seats in parliament it needed to ram through an economic agenda that is supported by the South African Communist Party. In four years, de Klerk's party will be in a position to form a coalition with Inkatha, not unlike the Democratic Turnhalle Alliance in Namibia (formed with Allard Lowenstein's support and assistance), which also managed to prevent the prevailing revolutionary group, SWAPO, from getting the two thirds it needed to nationalize the mineral wealth.

Once again, white American liberals have failed to appreciate the innate conservatism of some black Africans, and their willingness to work with whites, even their former oppressors, out of fear that they might lose their property to a "revolutionary" regime, even one financed by the U.S. government and supported by Jesse Helms and Harris Wofford, the "Odd Couple" of American politics. If a post-Mandela ANC splits apart, as some South Africans have predicted, and with the South African Communist Party marginalized, a National/Inkatha Party could well become a real force in South Africa. There is a certain logic to this; the Boers and the Zulus have always had a common enemy: the British and their English-speaking South African allies in the mining industries. But the Boers and Zulus, both pro-business, pose no threat to the great companies and families that have controlled the South African economy since the Boer war.

“A Diamond Is Forever: Mandela Triumphs, Buthelezi and de Klerk Survive, and ANC on the U.S. Payroll” – Part 11

http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

http://web.archive.org/web/20080320232050/http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

Mandela's Democratic Moves

Meanwhile, Nelson Mandela has made all the right noises, from the point of view of his American supporters. He pledged not to confiscate the property of whites and not to tax in a way that will discourage foreign investment and profit. He also made it clear that he will not tolerate disorder; after the election he urged everyone to go back to work and back to school. Mandela did not spend all those years in prison to preside over a country in chaos and anarchy. Like Buthelezi, who is actually a close friend of his, Mandela is a descendant of African royalty. If the ANC and Inkatha have accepted U.S. dollars, as they have, from the Americans who caused the perpetuation of apartheid for Cold War reasons, there is more than enough irony in this to justify their actions. Mandela has started to resemble his predecessor in African liberation, Jomo Kenyatta. Kenyatta had been jailed for a very long time on charges of being a Mau Mau terrorist, and then was released in time to stop a violent revolution. Kenyatta suppressed his opposition and allowed the whites to keep control over the Kenyan economy. But Alec Erwin, a white Communist ANC candidate, declared that there "was nothing sacrosanct" about limiting the budget deficit to 6 percent of the GNP, as the IMF had required the ANC to pledge prior to granting a loan. If the ANC could stop mentioning this IMF requirement as part of the ANC's program, clearly more was necessary to make sure the worst did not happen.46

The Voters' Choice

The election results, which all the parties long ago accepted as "free and fair," produced some surprises, with the ANC polling 62.5 percent, less than the 67 percent required for control over the constitution, but more than enough to control patronage and 12 cabinet seats. De Klerk and the National Party (NP), which won control of the Western Cape, got over 20 percent, enough votes to allow de Klerk to be one of the two executive vice presidents and to gain four cabinet seats. The NP probably got a higher percentage of the black vote than did the Pan Africanist Congress, a relic of Cold War history, which received scant support in the election. Also disappearing into oblivion was the Democratic Party (DP), which was nothing more than the reconstituted old Liberal Party that Allard Lowenstein had backed. Once banned by the primitive white racist South African government, and later reinvented as the Progressive Party with the help of Harry Oppenheimer, the DP was basically the personal vehicle of Helen Suzman, who spent as much effort fighting the ANC as she did apartheid.

Mandela indicated that he would consider offering cabinet posts to representatives of parties which polled less than the required 5 percent, a carrot to the Pan Africanist Congress if they agreed to behave themselves. Inkatha received over 10 percent, enough to put Buthelezi in the cabinet and give Inkatha a total of four cabinet seats – a result his critics said was impossible. His total was augmented, and de Klerk's reduced, by the fact that some white Afrikaners voted for Buthelezi on the national level and the NP on the provincial level to bolster black opposition to the ANC. The white separatist Freedom Front ended up with about 3 percent, indicating that the white racist call for a boycott of the elections was only marginally successful. Together, these three provided an opposition bloc of over one-third of the voters, not counting those who boycotted the election.47 Buthelezi, whose Inkatha also carried KwaZulu/Natal, which his critics claimed he would never be able to do, summed up: "I'm grateful that up to now, in spite of all the skullduggery and the cheating, so far it has not flared up into any conflict or violence."48

“A Diamond Is Forever: Mandela Triumphs, Buthelezi and de Klerk Survive, and ANC on the U.S. Payroll” – Part 12

http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

http://web.archive.org/web/20080320232050/http://www.africancrisis.co.za/Article.php?ID=11102&

And it is not likely to. Buthelezi is now the Home Minister, which puts him in charge of internal affairs and makes him the boss of Sidney Mufamadi, the black chief of police who is also a member of the central committee of the South African Communist Party. The late Joe Slovo, South African Communist Party chairman, was head of Housing and Welfare before his death. Joe Modise, the black commander of Spear of the Nation, is Minister of Defense (albeit assisted by the existing chief of staff, General Georg Meyring, a white Afrikaner, who remained in his post); after the change in government Derek Keyes, de Klerk's white Afrikaner Minister of Finance continued to run the economy from the same position. Mandela's selection of the ANC's Thabo Mbeki as the other executive vice president left the able Cyril Ramaphosa out of the cabinet and the government entirely, although he remains as the chairman of the ANC, in which capacity he is in charge of drafting the new constitution. Mandela's incredible balancing act made it possible, overall, for there to be something for almost everyone, at which the CIA probably heaved a considerable sigh of relief.49 With the Cold War over, the view seems to be who cares if a couple of Communists clank around in the South African government as long as things are basically under control?

A Carat a Day…

The Goldsmith Commission, which had investigated the role of the police in the violence prior to the elections, subsequently looked ahead to 1999, when the "real" elections will take place. There will be a need for new leaders who comprehend the serious economic problems of the country, as perceived by the International Monetary Fund. USSALEP no doubt stands ready to provide these leaders. The only question is whether the United States government will continue to finance their campaigns.

But while the pundits debate the first year of the Mandela era, DeBeers continues to control 80 percent of the world's diamond trade, "with 50 percent of these diamonds by value coming from the company's own mines in South Africa, Botswana, and Namibia."50 Jonathan M.E. Oppenheimer, Harry Oppenheimer's grandson, the son of Nicholas F. Oppenheimer of Johannesburg, deputy chairman of the great mining giants, the Anglo-American Group and DeBeers Consolidated Mines, Ltd., the latter founded by Cecil Rhodes with the backing of the Rothschilds, represents the next generation of Oppenheimers as he continues his work as a management trainee at N.M. Rothschild & Sons in London.51 Politicians may come and go, but as the DeBeers ad claims on television, "a diamond is forever."

Funny Peculiar Postscript

Subsequently, reports came of widespread election fraud in KwaZulu Natal where Inkatha won its "victory." In some areas, more votes were counted than the census recorded people living there. Nevertheless, the ANC did not seriously challenge the results. Key ANC candidates who were not elected on the national or provincial levels were rewarded with big jobs in either Mandela's government in Pretoria or in the Inkatha-dominated government of KwaZulu/Natal. Reporting for Newsday from South Africa in May 1994, Dele Olojede wrote:

[T]he great South African political settlement is fait accompli. Mandela is in Pretoria, where Buthelezi will serve as his home affairs minister in charge of federal relations with provinces. In the Natal provincial capital of Pietermaritzburg Friday night, Inkatha Chairman Frank Mdlalose was duly sworn in as premier at the inaugural session of the provincial legislature. His candidacy was unopposed. The ANC accepted three of 10 positions in Mdlalose's cabinet. And when Zulu King Goodwill Zwelethini swept into the chambers, the ANC bench jumped up along with everyone else to shout, in salute, "Wena ndlovu!" ("You're the elephant.")

Or the donkey.

Richard Daley, the legendary major of Chicago, would have approved totally. That AID money wasn't wasted at all. King Goodwill expressed confidence that, now, peace would surely reign in "my kingdom."52

Yeah right!

BREAKING: Janusz Walus stabbed in prison

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/janusz-walus-stabbed-prison-breaking-29-november-tuesday/

29-11-2022 18:12

Janusz Walus was allegedly stabbed by another prisoner, the Department of Correctional Services (DCS) confirmed on Tuesday, 29 November.

According to the department, Walus was attacked by an inmate from the same housing unit.

The Polish national is serving a life sentence at the Kgosi Mampuru II Correctional Facility for the 1993 murder of South African Communist Party (SACP) leader Chris Hani.

Last week, the Constitutional Court ordered Walus’ release on parole. He is expected to be released in the first week of December and was granted permanent residence for the duration of his parole.

“The Minister of Home Affairs further believes that the heinous crime committed to the people of South Africa by murdering one of the icons of the liberation struggle makes it obligatory that Mr Walus must serve his parole period as part of sentence in the Republic of South Africa,” said the Department of Home Affairs in a statement on Monday, 28 November.

ANC to protest against Janusz Walus release tomorrow

https://www.thesouthafrican.com/news/anc-protest-janusz-walus-release-29-november-2022/

29-11-2022 21:30

ANC will be staging a protest action in Tshwane against a high-profile assassin Janusz Walus who murdered Chris Hani

Walus, who has been serving a sentence in Kgosi Mampuru Correction Service or C-Max as previously known, shook the country after the Constitutional Court ordered his release on parole last week.

However, the decision was widely rejected and criticised by civil organisations including the ruling party, ANC.

PARTY RELEASES A STATEMENT ON ITS STANCE AGAINST THE PAROLE

In a statement issued by Cde Thembinkosi ‘TK’ Nciza, the African National Congress (ANC) in Gauteng says it has declared Wednesday, 30 November 2022, the Martin Thembisile Chris Hani Day of Action and will march to the Kgosi Mampuru Prison where Hani’s assassin, Janusz Walus, is set to be released follwong the unanimous decision by the Constitutional Court to grant him parole.

“The assassination of Cde Chris Hani was tantamount to treason and remains one of the most painful occurrences in our country’s trajectory and fight for freedom, robbing our country of one of its greatest sons.”

TK Nciza

“Occurring at the height of the Convention for Democratic South Africa (Codesa) negotiations, the assassination of Cde Chris Hani brought our country to the brink of civil war, and emboldened the neo-Nazi, White-supremacist and racist right-wing element which deepened its targeted violence against black people,” said Nciza.

CHRIS HANI’S KILLER STABBED AHEAD OF RELEASE

The planning of this protest coincides with the latest developments on Walus release. His release could be postponed after he was stabbed this afternoon by an inmate.

In a statement, the Department of Correctional Services stated that Walus was stable and DCS healthcare officials are providing the necessary care.

Britain and South Africa on Wednesday announced a new health and science partnership to mark the second day of President Cyril Ramaphosa's state visit to London, the first such official guest hosted by Britain's King Charles.

Charles, 74, had rolled out traditional pomp and ceremony to welcome Ramaphosa, hosted a banquet in his honour on Tuesday. Ramaphosa also addressed lawmakers at the Houses of Parliament.

On Wednesday, Britain announced a new set of research collaborations as Ramaphosa toured the Crick Institute, the biggest biomedical research facility in Europe, and Kew Gardens, with Charles' brother Edward.

British foreign minister James Cleverly said the partnerships, on areas such as vaccine manufacturing, genome sequencing and climate change, will "benefit us all".

"The UK and South Africa have shown global leadership in joining together to protect people by preventing the spread of dangerous diseases, and by working to halt climate change."

Ramaphosa will meet Prime Minister Rishi Sunak later in the day, and attend a UK-South Africa business forum to discuss trade and investment. South Africa is Britain's biggest trading partner in Africa.

Ramaphosa had highlighted the role that industrialised nations had to play in helping other countries cut emissions in his speech on Tuesday, and welcomed Britain's involvement in initiatives helping South Africa to decarbonise.

Britain will support genome sequencing at South Africa's National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD), which played a key role in detecting Covid-19 variants such as beta and omicron, in a push improve antimicrobial resistance surveillance in Africa.

Kew Gardens - a botanical garden in west London - will also work with South Africa's National Biodiversity Institute on preserving South Africa's plant diversity.

“UK columnist brands Cyril Ramaphosa as a ‘dreadful fellow’ after state visit to UK”

Pretoria - President Cyril Ramaphosa has been labelled “a dreadful fellow” by the UK-based Sunday Times newspaper, where he was described as a man who prefers “folded stuff” over chequebooks.

In the article titled “He must be special – the tea trolley’s out”, political sketch writer Quentin Letts delved into the pomp and ceremony marking Ramaphosa’s visit to the UK’s monarchy, at the invitation of King Charles III.

The November 23 article, which criticises the president for his requests for money, was met with mixed reactions on Twitter. Some argued South Africa deserved reparations while others felt Ramaphosa could not be trusted when it came to handling the country’s purse.

“Visiting heads of state are usually subtler about asking for money, but Cyril Ramaphosa, the president of South Africa, was quick to business when he addressed the joint houses of parliament.

“Ramaphosa, not one of life’s charmers, demanded Britain cough up for historical industrial emissions. South Africa wanted ‘compensation for harm done and harm yet to be done’. Get out your chequebooks. Actually, from what one hears about Ramaphosa, folding stuff might be preferable,” wrote Letts.

The writer painted Ramaphosa’s speech as a long whine about South Africa’s socio-economic challenges.

“(Lord) Hoyle delivered a tidy speech, much about (Nelson) Mandela. Ramaphosa sat there expressionless. He possibly longs for the day when someone makes a speech about him.

“His own speech, not short, was light on diplomatic anecdotes and historical perspective normal at these events.

“Instead, he banged on about poverty, diseased water, power cuts, and how to transfer ‘substantial resources’ from rich countries (i.e, us) to low and medium-income countries (i.e, him),” he wrote.

Letts ended his article with unflattering whisperings his colleague picked up at the event as journalists had to be present an hour before Ramaphosa was introduced. “As the parliamentarians dispersed, a colleague heard a couple of peers mutter, ‘what a dreadful fellow’.

“That may be unfair, but Ramaphosa certainly misread the room,” Letts wrote.

During his visit to the UK, Ramaphosa was met with protests from DA members and South African expats, who demanded he focus on fixing the energy crisis, especially recurring blackouts.

He later told the UK parliamentarians about the strong ties South Africa had with Britons.

In “our Parliament buildings in Cape Town, you may have seen a statue of Queen Victoria, the revered ancestor of His Majesty King Charles III. And not far from here, on the other side of Parliament Square, is a statue of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, the father of our nation.

“The presence of the statues of these two great historical figures at the seats of our respective democracies makes a powerful statement,” said Ramaphosa.

Ramaphosa said: “ … this state visit is to reinvigorate ties of commerce, trade, and investment between our two countries. The UK is the largest foreign investor in South Africa and our fifth-largest export destination”. Over the last two decades, the UK has been South Africa’s largest source of tourists outside of Africa

“Few countries have the depth of experience and knowledge of the South African economy than Britain. British companies need to seek out opportunities in SA for investment and trade.”

Presidency spokesperson Vincent Magwenya did not respond to a request for comment on the article

“Marikana returns to haunt Ramaphosa” - Lonmin

Johannesburg - President Cyril Ramaphosa is heading to the dock for a grilling on his role in the Marikana massacre back in 2012 when the police shot and killed Lonmin mineworkers during a strike for a wage increase.

The pleadings in the civil claim for damages brought seven years ago by the group of 349 surviving mineworkers against Ramaphosa, Lonmin (now trading as Sibanye Stillwater) and the South African government, have now closed.

The remaining step would be for the parties to share the documents on which they rely. The matter would then be set down for a trial, where Ramaphosa must come and testify why he should not be held personally liable for the massacre. The mineworkers want an unconditional apology for his actions and utterances, including a damages payment of nearly R1 billion.

In June, the Johannesburg High Court made a scathing ruling that opened the door for Ramaphosa to be held liable for collusive conduct during the Marikana massacre. The move brings the current head of state - who was back then a Lonmin director - one step closer to his day in court.

Judge Frits van Oosten found that a case could be made that Ramaphosa “participated in, masterminded and championed the toxic collusion” between mining company Lonmin and the SA Police Service that led to the Marikana massacre.

“LIVE BLOG: Watch robbery at President Cyril Ramaphosa’s Phala Phala farm ahead of release of Farmgate Parliamentary report”

November 30, 2022

All eyes are on the Phala Phala farm scandal today as an independent panel investigating the circumstances around the theft of $4 million (about R64m) from President Cyril Ramaphosa’s farm in Bela-Bela, Limpopo, is expected to hand over its report to Speaker of Parliament Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula.

News about large sums of foreign currency concealed under a mattress and couches at the farm came to light early this year after former State Security Agency and Correctional Services director-general Arthur Fraser opened a criminal case against Ramaphosa at the Rosebank police station.

Earlier reports by IOL and the Sunday Independent indicated that the money was allegedly stolen by five Namibians who conspired with a domestic worker on the farm in February 2020 and that Ramaphosa had allegedly failed to report the theft to the police.

In September, one of the Namibians linked to the theft, Urbanus Shaumbwako, 37, appeared in the Cape Town Regional Court following his arrest at a roadblock in October 2020.

At the time, he was found in possession of 12 automatic firearms and also faced charges of reckless driving.

The media in Namibia reported that police in Namibia denied any involvement in helping to cover up the theft.

The panel that will be handing over the report includes Chief Justice Sandile Ngcobo, former head of the Gauteng High Court Division, Judge Thokozile Masipa and advocate Mahlape Sello.

“The purpose of the panel is to say, based on information before them, if there is prima facie evidence that warrants Parliament to look into the matter, if this is the case when the report is handed over, members of Parliament will then receive a report and will have an opportunity to look at it and go to the House and have it debated and adopted,” Mapisa Nqakula said when the members of the panel were announced.
