Why are 8,000 black ANC-youth league members – all civilians – getting recruited for military-training at SANDF bases … and why are white youths excluded…
2011-07-30 LUTHULI HOUSE, JOHANNESBURG – Afrikaner-civil rights group AfriForum lodges an urgent law suit under the Freedom of Information Act tomorrow, to force the defence minister to reveal the truth about the controversial military-training scheme of the ANC youth league, called “Narysec”. The DA-parliamentarianDavid Maynier is raising the issue in the parliamentary standing commission for defence.” This programme poses a huge risk for the defence force because it can be used far too easily as a backdoor to provide militia-training for the AnC youth league,’ said Maynier. “The parliamentary standing committee was never informed about this.“
Afriforum demands to know the exact role played by the SANDF in providing advanced two-year military training courses to such civilian youngsters; and demands to know the exact manner in which these youngsters are being recruited. The first group of 1000 of the “Narysec’ corps are reporting to the Saldanha military base for military training from tomorrow, on May 1 2011. Another 1,000 are scheduled for Oct 1 — and at least 8,000 black youths have been identified as suitable for the training scheme.
Each recruit – aged from 18 to 35 years– must have Grade Ten educational levels, will be trained at military bases for two years and receive a monthly salary of R1,320 plus food, lodging and transport costs, confirmed rural affairs spokesman Eddie Mohoebi.
Uhuru spelled out in large white rocks at De Brug military base, Bloemfontein: May 2010
Some 600 ‘Narysec’ recruits have already received military training at the De Brug military base near Bloemfontein. Its commander last year caused widespread fear amongst the Afrikaner and Boer communities by instructing his soldiers to paint the word “Uhuru’ on boulders overlooking the highway to Bloemfontein. Above: pictures of the temporary military encampment of the 14th Batallion whose soldiers had painted the word Uhurur. Photographs: Emile Hendricks, Volksblad. That newspaper’s journalist Charles Smith noted that especially the local Afrikaner farmers and the Afrikaner community around the military base all felt very threatened by this act, noting that Uhuru for their ethnic-minority is a particularly ‘politically-loaded word especially after the gruesome murder just days earlier on Ventersdorp farmer Eugene Terre’Blanche, leader of the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging. Uhuru is the Swahili word widely used in Africa to generally indicate the ‘freedom struggle against colonialism’. However its basic premise underlying this word, is that ‘Africa only belongs to black Africans’.
Who is behind the modern Uhuru movement and its anti-white hate-speech radio?
There is a very active Uhuru-movement among black Africans including in Zimbabwe and South Africa, run by the “African Peoples Socialist Party” – and which broadcasts a constant stream of anti-Western and anti-Semitic hatespeech all over the world, also to South Africa: Uhurunews.com Uhuru radio says on its website that they represent ‘the African liberation movement to unite the struggles of African people towards victory and independence in our lifetime.” Inside South Africa, they are supported by the Pan Africanist Congress Party of Azania and its militant organisations. They refer to South Africa as “Azania’ and believe that only ‘black Africans should be allowed to live and work on the African continent’. They also have a large following amongst the ANC youth league’s Blackwash group – which mimics their propaganda.
Uhuru Radio receives financial and activist-support from the United States of America, mainly from a group of white women who call themselves the “African People’s Solidarity Committee” (click on picture above) and which is chaired by radical Marxist anti-war activist Mrs. Penny Hess in the USA. Her viewpoint – as viewed on this video – seems to be that all poor people are black and that it’s the fault of all the white people that blacks are poor. Her viewpoint can be seen on the picture above.

AfriForum is using the Freedom of Information act to obtain a court-order to force defence minister Lindiwe Sisulu to reveal the manner of recruitment of these youth-militias.
“WALL OF AGGRESSION” BY ANC-MINISTERS
Afriforum has repeated asked for more information ever since the military-training scheme for ANC youth league members – which is completely funded by the taxpayers — started leaking out in the local media. Afriforum ran into a ‘wall of aggression’ whenever they tried to find out more. For instance, on May 3, 2011, Charl Oberholzer, the national chairman of the Afriforum youth league, was accosted with ‘aggression’ by black staffers (photo below) while visiting the Minister of Defence and Military Veterans Lindiwe Sisulu’s office. Afriforum youth league members were there to hand in a petition, asking the Minister to explain – again under the Freedom of Information Act – whether, why and which ANC youth league members were recruited for military training at Saldanha military base; for which purpose; and when these facts were going to be published. “We ran into a wall of aggression’, our legitimate request for information was “rejected as unnecessary’ and the media’s presence was aggressively condemned. We were told that ‘the minister did not have time to have to explain themselves to Afriforum youths,” said Oberholzer ( below) in a statement afterwards.
Oberholzer was rudely accosted by a Sisulu office staffer at the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform. Oberholzer pointed out ‘that the Minister was obligated, under the Freedom of information act, to make this information known to the public. We demand to know the manner in which these trainees were recruited, what their political affiliations are, the exact details of the training programme, the composition of the National Rural Youth Service and what their purpose would be,’ he said. He was bluntly told that ‘Minister Sisulu did not have time to answer questions from Afriforum youths.’ The minister has said in the past that the civilian-military training scheme was undertaken to ‘train the youths as rural census-takers’.
“Article 199(7)(b) of the Constitution of South Africa very clearly indicates that no political party may be advanced by the security forces. To prevent that South Africa – as is done in the neighbouring Zimbabwean dictatorship – trains political recruits and undermines the country’s welfare, it it crucial exactly for what purpose the National Rural Youth Service Corps is being trained,’ he said – Link
The Democratic Alliance asks: “The defence force says it is not responsible for the recruitment of the Narysec volunteers. So how would the defence orce know whether they are recruited from ANC youth league ranks, or not? South Africa cannot afford to infringe on the impartiality of the defence force in this manner’.
Afriforum lawyer Willie Spies said their court application will demand Sisulu reveal the following:
- The manner in which members were recruited to participate in the militia-training programme;
- Whether recruits are affiliated with any specific organisation or political party; Narysec’s organisational structure and its true purpose;
- What Narysec’s constitution entails, and whether it follows the black-economic-empowerment laws (requiring 6% white participation)
- The exact curriculum and study-material which is used in this training-programme;
- Which courses are included in the training-programme.
“These non-military youths will become our Agents of Change… ‘ – Rural affairs minister Gugile Nkwinti
In June the minister of land affairs Gugile Nkwinti told his portfolio’s parliamentary committee that ‘Narysec helps large numbers of rural youths who have no hope.” (writes Rapport journalist Runé Kitshoff.) “What should we have done given our high unemployment levels. What do you do with a young Army which has never worked, and does not know what work is? What kind of moral authority or position can we demand if they become criminals and we have done nothing? ‘he asked. “We send them to the defence force for two months for character-building – as non-military personnel – and they will become our agents of Change. Then we have moral authority’.
Each recruit must have Grade Ten educational levels, be aged 18s to 35 years, will be trained for two years and receive a monthly salary of R1,320 plus food, lodging and transport costs,said rural affairs spokesman Eddie Mohoebi. ANC youth league spokesman Floyd Shivambu was not available to answer his phone yesterday. “His in-mail facility was full,’ wrote Rapport.
