South African Elections 7 May 2014

It was a peaceful Wednesday afternoon on the soil of the South African Elections of 7 May 2014. In a land that spans 1.2-million square kilometres of land. This is some of the best land in Africa. So exotic it is, that international movie stars from Hollywood and other famous parts of the USA, have opted to own a few pieces of this space.

People bore the cool and hot winter sun as they queue’d for a chance to make their mark in South African History. I took my wife along, as we drove from Midrand to Pretoria. Adamant as she was that she would not vote this year. In retrospect I am glad I took her along. I believe after seeing so many people, black and white, waiting to cast their most valuable vote – she was finally convinced to vote too.

As we approached Centurion on old Pretoria road, she started to read out loud an excerpt from David G mailu’s 18 August 1985 appearance on the Sunday Times a speech by P.W.Botha to his Cabinet, a piece of which partly reads;

“We do not pretend like other Whites that we like Blacks. The fact that, Blacks look like human beings and act like human beings do not necessarily make them sensible human beings. Hedgehogs are not porcupines and lizards are not crocodiles simply because they look alike. If God wanted us to be equal to the Blacks, he would have created us all of a uniform colour and intellect. 

But he created us differently: Whites, Blacks, Yellow, Rulers and the ruled. Intellectually, we are superior to the Blacks; that has been proven beyond any reasonable doubt over the years. I believe that the Afrikaner is an honest, God fearing person, who has demonstrated practically the right way of being. Nevertheless, it is comforting to know that behind the scenes, Europe, America, Canada, Australia-and all others are behind us in spite of what they say.”

I believe after reading this post, my wife was enraged into a new position about voting. And I am glad for her, and perhaps that is why most of us blacks fail to bring ourselves to vote for party’s like the DA or any other white party.

This 1.2-million square kilometres of land is mostly owned by whites, much over 80% of the land is in the hands of those who orchestrated history’s most provocative and evil thefts, of land, of diamonds and gold that they spoke of as if it was rightfully theirs, bigots and haters of the nigro. 

As things turn out, the votes are being counted as I type these words, and the latest is as follows:
