Election results are out and Zuma and the ANC look set to lead South Africa again “Free”South Africa voted for the fourth time after apartheid was dismantled It has a population of 52 million people of whom 25 million voted Jacob Zuma is representing an increasingly educated but poor black South Africa
Zuma became the President of the ANC on 18 December 2007 after defeating incumbent Thabo Mbeki at the ANC conference in Polokwane. He was re-elected as ANC leader at the ANC conference in Manguang on 18 December 2012, defeating challenger Kgalema Motlanthe by a large majority. Zuma was also a member of the South African Communist Party (SACP),briefly serving on the party’s Politburo until he left the party in 1990.On 20 September 2008, Thabo Mbeki announced his resignation after being recalled by the African National Congress’s National Executive Committee. The recall came after South African High Court Judge Christopher Nicholson ruled that Mbeki had improperly interfered with the operations of the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA), including the prosecution of Jacob Zuma for corruption.
Zuma is not being very cooperative with the Chosen Mining Companies and is being given bad press In 2007 AS SOON AS HE TOOK OVER Zuma relaunched the African Exploration Mining and Finance Corporation (AEMFC) a state-controlled mining business in South Africa The AEMFC was launched by Jacob Zuma, the president of South Africa,prompting concerns that the state might attempt to nationalise parts of the mining industry.
As soon as he took over in fact before he even took over Zuma has faced significant legal challenges. He was charged with rape in 2005, but was acquitted. In addition, he fought a long legal battle over allegations of racketeering and corruption, resulting from his financial advisor Schabir Shaik’s conviction for corruption and fraud. On 6 April 2009, the National Prosecuting Authority decided to drop the charges, citing political interference. The latest scandal which never seems to leave the airwaves is the 23 million house expenses scam.The puppet masters of South Afirica seem to have “lost faith” in Zuma but unfortunately the people havent
His use of Schabir Shaik broke a long tradition of ANC members using the mainly Jewish white members of the ANC as advisors The rise of Indians and South Asian advisors to the black ANC leaders severly tested the unwritten power of Joe Slovo and the horde of Jewish “white advisors” to the ANC Due to the bad blood of the apartheid policies otherwise suitable English and Boer white advisors were never given a chance That only left the Jews as “advisors” Men and women like Joe Slovo, Harry Schwarz and Ruth First —– Jimmy Green ——-Denis Goldberg ———–Ronnie Kasrils ——Tony Leon ———Harry Schwarz——-Helen Suzman ——–
Although the record of the “Chosen Saint” Nelson Mandela vis a vis women was the same as Zumas nothing he did ever touched his halo.After the new mining policy started to look ominous to the De Beers and Anglo Americans, Zuma started getting bad press .Pictures like the ones below routinely turned up Mandela danced the same dances happily slept with and dumped women EXACTLY like Zuma yet never was a word spoken about him never did pictures like these get splashed all over the world
Nelson Mandela ducked out of an arranged marriage when he was a student, then went on to wed three times. His first two marriages collapsed under the strain of politics,AND Saint Mandelas fooling around EXACTLY like Zuma Yet Zuma comes out as some crazed sex starved lunatic while Mandela comes out with a collection of haloes
The Minister of Mining South Africas most important portfolio after the Prime Ministers post is held by a black lady Susan Shabangu (28 February 1956) She is a tough cookie and she too has had her share of bad press She has been the mining minister since 2009 and has firmly backed Zuma
So WHO is Zumas challenger ? She is a white lady Her name is Helen Zille She is a former journalist and anti-apartheid activist, and was one of the journalists who exposed the truth behind the death of Black Consciousness leader Steve Biko while working for the Rand Daily Mail in the late 1970s. She also worked with the Black Sash and other pro-democracy groups during the 1980s.
Helen Zille was born in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, the eldest child of parents who separately left Germany in the 1930s to avoid Nazi persecution(her maternal grandfather and paternal grandmother were Jewish).Her father’s uncle was the artist Heinrich Zille. So while the bulk of South Africas white population is English and Boer a Jewish women has been chosen to lead the opposition party
Whats the big deal about South Africa that the Chosen Ones remain there? Heres what
South Africa’s total reserves remain some of the world’s most valuable, with an estimated worth of R20.3-trillion($2.5-trillion). Overall, the country is estimated to have the world’s fifth-largest mining sector in terms of GDP value.
It has the world’s largest reserves of manganese and platinum group metals (PGMs), according to the US Geological Survey, and among the largest reserves of gold, diamonds, chromite ore and vanadium.
With South Africa’s economy built on gold and diamond mining , the sector is an important foreign exchange earner, with gold accounting for more than one-third of exports. In 2009, the country’s diamond industry was the fourth largest in the world. South Africa is also a major producer of coal, manganese and chrome.
There is considerable potential for the discovery of other world-class deposits in areas yet to be exhaustively explored. South Africa’s prolific mineral reserves include precious metals and minerals, energy minerals, non-ferrous metals and minerals, ferrous minerals, and industrial minerals
