http://bit.ly/lFiE55 – Violent communists threaten total chaos: ‘ we will make the city ungovernable,’ threatens communist youth league leader Nana Mnandi…

2011-06-17 Pietermaritzburg – After the office of the African National Congress party was torched Sunday, the communist-organisers of a protest march and three-week sitin in Pietermaritzburg threatened residents with chaos, that their city ‘would be made ungovernable’. They want all the ANC-councillors sacked and replaced with their own members’ choices. The communists also are behind the countrywide, very violent ‘service-delivery’ protests.

The ANC-regime has been striking back brutally against this gigantic temper-tantrum of their coalition partners: using the SA Police Force to hit back hard against the protestors who are challenging their power-base; it has become routine to fire live rounds and rubber bullets at close range directly at these protestors. The protestors also are armed. These violent reactions by the police, who have been given orders to Shoot to Kill, have cost the lives of at least three black protestors that we know of – but probably a lot more people are dying in this violence.

It’s nearly a civil war: attacks against Boer families and Black Foreigners have soared…

The country seems to be teetering on the very edge of civil war: for while the badly-overstretched SA police force members are being rushed from pillar to post to engage the armed protestors in direct combat all across the country, the heavily-armed ‘crime’-gangs are getting an increasingly free reign. The murderous attacks against Boer families in the cities and the countryside, and against black foreigners in the squatter-camps, have also increased.

Similar ‘impromptu protests’ with identical claims have also broken out in other South African regions – fuelled by communists who want to install their own office-bearers and thus strengthen the communists’ position inside the co-ruling triad in South Africa: the African National Congress, the SA Communist Party and the Cosatu trade union movement.

Communists

The communists warn of ‘further chaos’ if the ANC did not remove ‘controversial’ ANC-counsellors Alpha Shelembe and Zonke Mbatha and replace them with communists — claiming that the two ANC-councillors had set fire to the ANC offices themselves. “We will make Pietermaritzburg ungovernable,” said local communist youth-league leader Nana Mnandi, one of the activists who had been staging a sit-in at the ANC’s Moses Mabhida region offices for nearly three weeks.
Organisers of Friday’s protest included some members of the African National Congress – but most protestors were from the SA Communist Party and Congress of SA Trade Unions – (it is not uncommon for people to hold co-membership of all three ruling groups).

The marchers demanded “wholesale changes in the leadership in the Zululand Midlands”- they want all the councillors sacked.Local Cosatu secretary Zimasile Giyama said: “This is the start of something that will grow bigger if the leadership does not respond swiftly and positively on our demands.”

June 1 2011 – QaQa ANC-councillor’s home torched, Afrikaner news-team threatened with knives, iron-bars, lethal-looking snares…

A newsteam from Volksblad was threatened with knives when a large violent group of communist protestors torched an ‘unpopular’ ANC-councillor’s home on May 31 2011 in the former homeland of QaQa. Gutsy Volksblad photographer Willem van der Berg kept on photographing the scene – despite this violent in-your-face confrontation by a clearly angry youth-mob of knifemen: they also carried snares and iron-bars: their intentions clearly were not ‘peaceful’ despite their claims that it was a ‘peaceful protest.’

KwaDakuza, KZN – Two people were killed by live rounds, the SAPF director Phindile Radebe has confirmed on June 8 2011. Rumours were that the two men were killed by ‘rival taxi associations’ security guards. However police also fired live rounds and rubber bullets, she said.The vicious rioting started Monday-morning after fares rose from R4.50 to R7. Protesters said the taxis ‘kicked out the buses a few years ago, and now cannot transport that many people.And the Indian-owned bus companies’ fares also were more reasonable, protestors now say. The R102 between the Shakaskraal and Gledhow off-ramps remained closed to traffic.Two cars, a truck and a police officer’s home were torched. Police rescued the occupants of the truck but the contents, furniture and paint, were burnt – http://www.news24.com/SouthAfrica/News/Rubber-and-real-bullets-fly-in-Kwadakuza-20110608

April 14 2011 – Andries Tatane, unarmed clean-water activist, shot dead by two SAPS bullets, Ficksburg, FS – in front of news cameras…

25 April 2011 FICKSBURG FS – The SABC photographer who filmed the entire scene which recorded the way in which a large group of black SA policemen assaulted and beat up peaceful, unarmed ‘clean-water’ activitist Andries Tatane has told City Press newspaper that he heard the words: “Shoot him” ring out – and then Tatane suddenly collapsed with blood spurting from his chest and died shortly thereafter. Two rubber bullets were recovered from Andries Tatane’s chest. They had been fired from very close-range by one of the police-officers who surrounded the armed black teacher.

2011-04-18 Ficksburg – Volksblad journalist/photographer Willem van der Berg, who also took the powerful photographs which recorded Tatane’s death while he was being cradled by his anguished friend Molefi Nonyane, also was the first one to reveal that two rubber-bullets were removed from the chest of Tatane (34). Tatane was murdered in front of the cameras during a demonstration in which many thousands of local residents had marched to demand clean water delivery by the municipality on April 14 .

Eight SAPS members of Bloemfontein were arrested and have since been released on a mere R2,000 bail: two are expected to be tried for murdering Tatane, the others for assault with the intent to cause serious injury. The Independent Complaints directorate’s managing director Francois Beukman immediately confirmed the Sunday after the shooting that the police-officers were identified by witnesses and that the investigative task-team had questioned 14 police officers from Saturday-afternoon after the forensic examination revealed the bullets.
