    He cannot 'guarantee' what will happen in the future, the EFF leader said in a recent interview Julius Malema says he has not called for the murder of white people, "at least for now." In an interview with TRT World, published on Monday, Malema said he could not guarantee what would happen in the future, and warned that a revolution would happen if things continued as they are now. "I'm saying to you, we've not called for the killing of white people, at least for now. I can't guarantee the future." Asked by the presenter if he understood that to...
  • Ndwedwe aquaponic farm continues to thrive (South Africa)

    06/11/2018 5:18:51 PM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 7 replies
    The modern day aquaponic system, which has its roots in South China and Southeast Asia, is rapidly gaining in popularity. Here on home soil, an aquaponic farm in the rolling hills of Ndwedwe, which was established by a group of big-hearted Durban University of Technology (DUT) students back in 2016, continues to thrive. From subsistence farming in rural areas, to large-scale commercial farming in peri-urban areas, as well as vertical and indoor farming by hobbyists to feed neighbours and beautify urban spaces, when it comes to aquaponics, the possibilities are endless. Situated in the Noodsberg community, the project came about...

    Chinese President Xi Jinping will open late Saturday a two-day regional security summit attended by Russia, Iran and other allies confronting rising tensions with the US over trade and Washington’s withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal. Armored vans lined the streets of the coastal city of Qingdao as world leaders arrived Friday for the 18th annual summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), a regional security bloc led by China and Russia. Its member states also include four ex-Soviet Central Asian republics, Pakistan and India. Iran is an observer member. Authorities emptied an entire oceanside swathe of the city —...
  • Corruption Gutted South Africa’s Tax Agency. Now the Nation Is Paying the Price.

    PRETORIA, South Africa — The nation’s tax chief steeled himself. Chiding and pleading with President Jacob Zuma to get him to file his taxes — much less pay the full amount — was always an excruciating task. And it kept getting worse. One of the president’s sons, a nephew and countless business allies had serious tax problems as well, four former senior officials said, alarming investigators and leaving them wondering what to do. South Africa’s young democracy had depended on the faith — and taxes — of its people since the end of apartheid, so the risks were evident. If...

    A secret business deal between the government of Guinea and a multinational firm with a U.S. partner aided by the Obama administration’s wrongheaded foreign policy could cost American businesses billions. Congress ought to investigate to protect American investors, expose any political shenanigans and prosecute the guilty. The London Sunday Times first cracked the story June 3 of the secret $25 million loan between an offshore company, Palladino Capital 2, and the cash-strapped West African country. The funds, according to the loan agreement, were to finance the start-up of Guinea’s state mining company, Heritage, but the cash allegedly disappeared and the...

    In the wake of today’s Texas school shooting, Chris Matthews, on his MSNBC show this evening, suggested that South Africans look down on the US, wondering “what’s with America?” Matthews might have wanted to check his stats before Blaming America First. Intentional homicide rate per 100,000 inhabitants: United States: 4.88, South Africa: 34.27. That’s right: the homicide rate in South Africa is more than seven times that in the US.Get the rest of the story and view the video here.

    White South Africans have the right to exist. They have the right to make a living and to raise families without being constantly bombarded with hateful anti-white rhetoric or subject to violent crimes. This may seem like an obvious statement, but you would be surprised how many both black and white liberals seem to celebrate the suffering of white South Africans. Their dispossession has been steadily progressing since 1994. As a group, they have shrunk from almost 13% of the population to 8% of the population today. But it is only within the last ten years that their dispossession has...

    Huge icebergs could be towed from Antarctica to Cape Town in a bid to solve South Africa's worst drought in a century. Marine salvage experts are floating the plan to tug the icebergs to the region after its seen the worst water shortage in decades. Salvage master Nick Sloane told Reuters news agency he was looking for government and private investors for a scheme to guide huge chunks of ice across the ocean, chop them into a slurry and melt them down into millions of litres of drinking water. "We want to show that if there is no other source...

    ... Mr. Obama is inaugurating his most significant international project as an ex-president, with an announcement on Monday that the Obama Foundation plans to convene 200 young people this July in Johannesburg for five days of meetings, workshops and technical training. At the same time, Mr. Obama will deliver a lecture to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of Nelson Mandela, whom he eulogized after his death five years ago by saying he “makes me want to be a better man.” The choice of Mandela and South Africa are freighted with symbolism for Mr. Obama at a time when...

    South Africa is busy Zimbabwifying itself, ready to expropriate white-owned farms without compensation. At this point, it should be a pariah state. But in goes President Obama, likely to egg them on. The gushy New York Times piece about it pretty well calls Obama's planned trip to play community organizer abroad in South Africa a wonderful thing. He’s been photographed kite-surfing with Richard Branson off Necker Island, relaxing on David Geffen’s yacht in French Polynesia with Bruce Springsteen and Oprah Winfrey, river-rafting with his family in Bali and posing with a celebrity chef in Tuscany. To those who have...

Attorney-General Christian Porter pledged Wednesday to help at-risk farmers applying for visas, telling the Australian newspaper “the more South Africans in our local community the better.”

    <p>If someone had told me a few months ago that I’d be writing a piece for Front Page on this theme, I would’ve dismissed him as a lunatic. After all, then I was supporting the positions expected from those on the so-called antiwar right. I was harshly critical of Israeli defense initiatives, more willing to talk up for Noam Chomsky than the sitting President, and insistent upon baiting “neo-conservative” Michael Ledeen of National Review into admitting that he sought to see the regime in Tehran overthrown by any means necessary, including US Military involvement.</p>

    Land reform is a key issue in South Africa, due to the long history of dispossession of indigenous populations by white settlers. Progress has been painfully slow over the past 24 years, but the question of land is now suddenly at the top of the political agenda. A major controversy erupted at the end of February following a motion adopted in parliament, tabled by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) and modified by the ANC, which started the process of potentially amending the constitution to allow for the expropriation of (white-owned) land without compensation, and its subsequent redistribution (to black people.)...

Theron said due to the current political and social climates in the country, she wants to ensure her African-American children, ages six and two, feel safe.

  • The 11 cities most likely to run out of drinking water - like Cape Town

    Cape Town is in the unenviable situation of being the first major city in the modern era to face the threat of running out of drinking water. However, the plight of the drought-hit South African city is just one extreme example of a problem that experts have long been warning about - water scarcity. Despite covering about 70% of the Earth's surface, water, especially drinking water, is not as plentiful as one might think. Only 3% of it is fresh. Over one billion people lack access to water and another 2.7 billion find it scarce for at least one month...

    Australia’s Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton says it’s “unquestionable” some white South African farmers are being persecuted and his department is looking into specific cases. Mr. Dutton also told Sky News Australia that no one in the government has retracted his offer to help white South African farmers who are eligible to be resettled under Australia’s refugee program, despite the South African government claiming Foreign Minister Julie Bishop had done so. On the contrary, he maintains that his department is “looking into” specific cases and Australia will do what it can for people in “desperate” situations. Mr. Dutton’s comments follow...
