Their fear faded as they raced back home, the bottle of Johnnie Walker getting lighter with each turn of the road. Soon, Sindiso Magaqa was clapping and bouncing behind the wheel of his beloved V8 Mercedes-Benz, pulling into familiar territory just before dark.
Minutes later, men closed in with assault rifles. Mr. Magaqa reached for the gun under his seat too late. One of his passengers saw flashes of light, dozens of them, from the spray of bullets pockmarking the doors.
The ambush was exactly what Mr. Magaqa had feared. A few months before, a friend had been killed by gunmen in his front yard. Then, as another friend tried to open his front gate at night, a hit man crept out of the dark, shooting him dead. Next came Mr. Magaqa, 34. Struck half a dozen times, he hung on for weeks in a hospital before dying last year.
All of the assassination targets had one thing in common: They were members of the African National Congress who had spoken out against corruption in the party that defined their lives.
If you understand the Cosa Nostra, you dont only kill the person, but you also send a strong message, said Thabiso Zulu, another A.N.C. whistle-blower who, fearing for his life, is now in hiding.

Winnie’s necklaces have gone mainstream.
The ANC learned a lot from the Clintons!
Once great country reverting to tribalism.
What the HELL is wrong with Africa?? There isn’t one decently run country on the entire continent!!
The ANC was always a communist front group.
Communism has always been nothing but a sweet-sounding lie used to gain power, by people who just wanted unchecked power.
Just like Chicago!!!
Its culture is a reflection of the people that inhabit it. That’s the problem.
The population there only grew owing to ag advances of whites:
What will happen to those people once S.A. ag reverts to African norms (standing around, staring).
Millions of people starving to death, I assume.
Most countries have functioned by in large because one group wiped out the other threats. It happened here, it will happen there. That is the norm. Eventually all whites will leave SA, in one way or another.
It’s okay though, at least they aren’t White...
Take a guess.
Add 1 more to the list of world shitholes. Obama was over there a few weeks back. Think he noticed or commented on any of this?
I thought this was going to be about the Democrat Party.
“I thought this was going to be about the Democrat Party.”
ANC = Communist thugs
Democrats = Communist thugs
Best news yet! Maybe when the racists get done killing each other off, the country will be safe for the whites to return.
