By AFRICAKA MAHAMBA

*“THE CITY OF Tshwane is the worst performing metropolitan city in the whole Gauteng”, these are the words of Gauteng Premier, David Makhura during the memorial service of the Sosh5. The Sosh5 are the five kids which were killed by the high mast light in Soshanguve after the City of Tshwane failed to service it.

A family member crying at the memorial service…

“It is painful because I saw families crying again, it is a commemoration but it feels like a funeral. There are answers and accountability; you can’t heal if you don’t know the answers. If there are no answers they will not.

“As we came to remember them we have no answer. I brief the mayor that families want the apollo to be removed. It is the responsibility of the municipality to remove the high mast light and I am very disappointed with the mayor Solly Msimango, who run to the media before the investigation starts said the cause is cable theft. If the incident happened in suburbs’ he would be here every day,” said Makhura.

Premier David Makhura greeting family members at the commemoration service.

He continues by asking, “Why he can’t come to Soshanguve and apologies to families”.

Makhura said Msimango went to Sebokeng, Alexander and other places in the province promising people better services because he wants to be premier of Gauteng but he is failing to fix a mess as the mayor of Tshwane.

“I came to the families for the third time but the mayor failed to visit families. I will be with you until there are answers. I will tell the mayor that there are still waiting for him in Soshanguve. I think you don’t have a mayor, maybe I just came to be your mayor, even mayor of Soshanguve. That light must fall.

“Sad news City of Tshwane is the worst performing municipality in Gauteng, things has stopped happening. That report is coming soon, he can’t run the city but think he can run Gauteng. If the municipality is failing they need to know that the red light is flicking, we will be there. If the municipality is not performing we put Section 139, we have done that at Emfuleni south of Gauteng by putting them under administration according to the constitution and start doing things that they were not doing but I do that under very very careful consideration,” said Makhura.

Some of more than 2 000 people who attended the event …

The five kids who died in that incident are Kearabile Baloyi (12 years old), Boitsoko Pobape (11 years old), Maikano Mmenu (9 years old), Lethabo Matibako (9 years old) and Dimpho Bopape (5 years old) The traumatic incident took place while children were playing in concrete slaps underneath the apollo high mast light about a year ago.

The high mass light ring fell down, instantly killing 4 children, with another one declared dead later at Dr. George Mukhari hospital in Ga-Rankuwa. Two survived, one escaped the incident, and another sustained severe injuries. africa@citypost.co.za

Country security comprised because of the Oppenheimers

 

By GUNDO MUNYAI

*THE Oppenheimer’s VIP Terminal at OR Tambo operates on a National Key Point on which Denel – a strategic state asset that operates within the defense systems, weaponry, and military – is based. The Oppenheimers want a hassle-free gateway that puts this country’s security at risk of illicit diamonds, drug, and human trafficking. For Denel, the risk to personnel, material, information, secrets, and espionage is real. But who cares? These are the Oppenheimers…

MISSING from the debate and sadly from yesterday’s Parliament’s engagement with the Oppenheimers on their VIP terminal at Oliver Tambo International Airport is the fundamental question of national sovereignty – what it means and who has ultimate control over borders and immigration. Missing too from the “Oppenheimers briefing Parliament” session were policy frameworks that guide government in its partnerships with private contractors in migration control, not to mention the absence of operational agreements which include who pays for what service, how much and how those amounts were derived.

Sovereignty is the full right and power of a governing body over itself, without any interference from outside sources or bodies.

Sovereignty is the most extensive form of jurisdiction under international law. In general terms, it denotes full and unchallengeable power over a piece of territory and all the persons from time to time therein.

Immigration control has traditionally been viewed as an inalienable sovereign function of the state and the question that arises is why South Africa would want to outsource its duty to control and safeguard its borders to private consultants, the Oppenheimers no less.

The Oppenheimers are South Africa’s wealthiest family having made their ill-gotten money off the blood of Africans here and surrounding countries in diamond mines. They have benefited from apartheid policy of land dispossession, segregation and exploitation….Watch this video for a view into the Oppenheimer Empire

But they want more…an international entry point into South Africa for the rich that puts this country at risk of illicit diamonds, human trafficking, armaments, drugs and much more…And guess what? They are operating on a National Key Point but they are Oppenheimers you see, they can capture a country’s borders and there’s no uproar from the media or any of our modern-day moralists and anti-state capture activists.

After a legal battle between Fireblade (the Oppenheimer business), Denel and the Department of Home Affairs (DHA), a judge gave the VIP terminal the go-ahead earlier this year. Denel, from whom Fireblade leases space for its 7-star operation, had consistently objected to the application on the basis that the terminal was on a National Key Point and had not complied with the security measures stipulated for National Key Point.

Denel had argued that as a strategic state asset that operates within the defense systems, weaponry, and military-related projects, both nationally and internationally, Fireblade’s non-compliance to security measures posed a “security risk to personnel, material, information, secrets, and espionage are real and serious”.

At issue for Denel was Fireblade’s noncompliance with security measures stipulated for a National Key Point. It objected to the application on the basis of “security concerns” which it said included the risk of drug and human trafficking and illicit smuggling of material such as money, precious metals, and weaponry.

The Oppenheimers claim, and the courts agreed with them, that Minister of Home Affairs Malusi Gigaba approved the operation and later reneged. What remains unspoken of is the issue of sovereignty and the ambit of the state as the sole manager of immigration and border control and how this ANC government has outsourced that to the Oppenheimers as it has with all the other basic services that it has commodified and put in the hands of private contractors.

As it turns out, there are major problems with the Fireblade/SA government partnership.

For starters, there has been no legal framework on which it is governed despite the many years Fireblade has operated on the domestic level and the court ruling that extended the service to an international port of entry at the beginning of the year
There are several government departments providing services for the Oppenheimer operation but none have a formal agreement and with the exception of DHA, are not being paid. These include State Security, Department of Home Affairs, South African Revenue Services (SARS), and others and it emerged that the DHA is paid a pitiful amount of R117,000
Line departments currently have to divert staff from OR Tambo International Airport to the private terminal when required. This happens despite the shortage of human capital to service high volumes at OR Tambo. news@citypost.co.za

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ANC won Tshwane Ward 9 by elections

Tshwane Ward 9 councilor Barbara Baloyi and ANC Tshwane Regional Secretary Eugene Bonzo Modise celebrating after ANC took the ward.

By AFRICA KA MAHAMBA

*AS THE City Post has predicted the ANC has won the Ward 9 by-elections in Winterveldt with about 70 percent beating all the parties that tried to use residents as their voting cows. The ANC has earlier said the people of Winterveldt still want it to continue with their good work of providing services to them.

The residents has rejected the DAEFF which rented a crowd from around Tshwane and other areas of Gauteng to assist them with elections because people don’t want to associate themselves with soft counter revolutionary parties. Small parties like the African Christian Democratic Party, Al Jama-Ah; Arusha Economic Coalition, Forum 4 Service Delivery; and South African First did a great job by taking 3 percent of the DAEFF votes.

The ANC has yet again won by elections with two thirds  after getting 68 percent of the votes followed by the DA by 17 percent, EFF got 10 percent small parties shared the 3 percent and 2 percent were spoilt ballot papers.

The DA tried by all means to get the votes by bringing their poster boy Solly Msimanga, including the Mickey Mouse MMC’s but voters, choose to ignore the DA and the London boy’s party the EFF.  They tried to bride residents with blankets, food parcels and money for wearing DA t-shirts. Residents took the food parcels, blankets and money…continue to vote for ANC.

The ANC Regional Secretary , Eugene Bonzo Modise said the branches and volunteers have worked hard to make sure that the ward remain in the hands of the ANC.

“We are focused and determined. It is the second successive and comprehensive victory in Tshwane’s by elections for the ANC, our glorious revolutionary movement. From here we are going to ward 19 and we will win it without any doubt because the ANC is the only organisation that deliver services to the people.

The ANC incoming ward councilor Barbara Baloyi casting vote at Old Assemblies of God of Africa.

“Comrade Barbara Baloyi has been tried and tested in the organisation; she will deliver the ANC mandate by making sure the people are getting services as our councillors are doing. She is ready to attend the next council meeting to represent the residents of ward 9.

“Congratulations to the RET (Regional Elections Team) and volunteers of the ANC in Tshwane, who came from all zones in the City. The struggle for a better life for all continues and victory is certain,” said Modise. 

*Candidate who took part in by elections are Baloyi of the African National Congress; Thabiso Joseph Sikhosana from Al Jama-Ah; Jerry Phuti Tuuba from Arusha Economic Coalition; Themba Nelson Peter Donacabe from the Democratic Alliance; Mamane Lina Khoza from the Economic Freedom Fighters; Cornelius Lebogang Maponya from Forum 4 Service Delivery; Evelyn Modibaof the African Christian Democratic Party; Matshidiso Barbara; and Leseja Philemon Makgoka from South African First. africa@citypost.co.za

*DESPITE ALLEGE INTIMIDATIONS by EFF hooligans the ANC is expecting to win the ward by 60 to 70 percent. The ANC is contesting against 7 small opportunistic parties that pop up during election time. The by-elections did not start well in Ward 9 Winterveldt. The Refalotse and Old Assemblies of God of Africa voting stations open late. In another incident, people wearing ANC regalia were intimidated by EFF members at the Refalotse voting station and some people wearing ANC regalia were assaulted and told not to set foot at Maluleke Stand in Winterveldt.

ANC ready to win Tshwane Ward 9 again

By AFRICA KA MAHAMBA

*THE AFRICAN NATIONAL Congress is working hard around the clock to trump down small opportunistic parties that are only visible during election time.

The by-elections come after the previous councillor Emmanuel Moselane’s membership was terminated by the ANC.

The Tshwane Ward 9 by-elections are highly contested by the ANC which remain the biggest party in the ward against small parties that stand no chance to take the ward from the ruling party.

The candidates that are contesting are season local politician Barbara Baloyi of the ANC (African National Congress) , Mamane Khoza of the EFF( Economic Freedom Fighters), Cornelius Maponya of the F4SD (Forum for Service Delivery), Thabiso Sikhosana of Aljama ,Jerry Tuuba of (Areco) Arusha Economic Coalion and Themba Donacabe of the Democratic Alliance.

The by-elections will be on the 31 October around Winterveldt from 8 am in the morning.

In the previous local government elections, the ANC obtained about 97 percent in Ward 9 which was the highest in the whole Gauteng.

The voting stations for this by-elections are Refalotse Primary School, City Rocks ground, Galeboe Middle School, Montsho Primary school, Rev Makunyane Church, Jesus Christ Our Rest Ministries and Old Assemblies of God of Africa.  

The ward remains an ANC stronghold because the party has not received less than 70 percent votes since 1995.

Kate Bapela of the IEC confirmed that by-elections for Tshwane Ward 9 will take place on the 31 October starting with Special votes on the 30 October from 8h00 in the morning to 5h00 in the afternoon.

Bafuzi Yabo the ANC Regional spokesperson in Tshwane said more groundwork has been done.

“We are very prepared to continue winning the ward despite a number of parties contesting in the ward. The ward is our stronghold, in previous elections is was the highest in Gauteng with about 97 percent of the people voting for the ANC.

“The ward has close to 16 000 voters and the majority of them wanted the ANC to continue with its work of delivering services to them,” said Yabo.

Councillor Nkele Molapo of the DA said they are well prepared to take the ward from the ANC.

“We are prepared to take the ward and we have been speaking to people and they are very positive to vote for our party,” said Molapo.

Thapelo Makgale the spokesperson for F4SD said they are ready to win the ward and they have managed to convince those who did not want to vote to vote for their party.

“As F4SD we are ready and we are visible on the ground and the community is happy and wants us to represent them. We have a young candidate because youth a not represented in the council,” said Makgale.

Our predictions place ANC on top

Predictions by City Post  Reporter Sizwe Zwane

*The ANC has a lot of chance to win the Tshwane Ward 9 by 70 to 80 percent due to small parties that pop up during election time. Remember this is no number one ANC ward in Gauteng there is no ways that it can lose this ward after it has place Barbara Baloyi well known ANC Women’s league activist in the ward.

*EFF is a danger to the ANC in the Ward by placing Mamane Khoza season local politician and the former political prisoner as their ward candidate. EFF will manage to steal more votes from the DA but will also not manage just a small position of ANC votes. The ANC needs to make sure that people like Mamane Khoza are recruited by to the party because they have followers and good credential. The EFF will manage to get about 20 to 35 percent of the votes.

*The DA candidate Themba Donacabe is an unknown person who is known by few individuals in the community he doesn’t stand a chance in this by-elections. The DA will be embarrassed because they stood not to get more than 10 percent of the votes.

*Cornelius Maponya of the new kid on the block the F4SD (Forum for Service Delivery) has a good track record in community work and he will manage to steal more votes from the ANC, EFF, and DA voters. He will surprise many by getting between 10 and 15 percent event his party doesn’t have enough budget to push elections campaign.

*Jerry Tuuba of (Areco) Arusha Economic Coalition is another unknown politician from an unknown party, I don’t think he stood a chance of getting 5 percent of the votes. This one will get about 1 percent or less.

* Thabiso Sikhosana of Aljama is also not known in the community but he will get more votes from the Moslem community which are less than a percent. He will also get 1 percent or less. news@citypost.co.za

Comrade Stalin is no more

By AFRICA KA MAHAMBA

*THE AFRICAN NATIONAL Congress in KwaZulu-Natal has lost of the greatest revolutionaries, communist, unionist, chief mobilize, and who is one of the founders of Umkhonto we Sizwe Comrade Eric “Stalin” Mtshali.

Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu the provincial ANC spokesperson told City Post that although they were aware of his ill-health, they were nursing hopes that he would recover and be with them once again.

“As the ANC in KwaZulu-Natal, we wish to extend our heartfelt condolences to the Mtshali family and the South African Communist Party – the party that he served until his last days. What saddens us is that his departure is a depletion of solid leaders who are the custodians of the culture and values of the Alliance. He had a rare ability to analyze the political environment under which we operate and assess the balance of forces and their influence in the success of our programmes.

“In all meetings, he offered analysis on the challenges experienced by the ANC in implementing programmes aimed at driving the transformation of society and offered solutions on how to turn things around. Cde Stalin was known within the ANC and the Alliance as a solution-driven leader. 

“He represented a long list of trade unionists and SAPC leaders who became pillars of the National Democratic Revolution. He spent more than 30 years in exile and represented the South African Congress of Trade Unions at the World Federation of Trade Unions in Prague, Czechoslovakia,” said Simelane-Zulu.

She said Mtshali was a Chief Mobiliser and a disciplined Commissar of the MK, he was a leader whose conviction that our cause would triumph never for one moment flagged.

“The military and political training that he received in Tanzania and Russia strengthened his resolve to ensure the total defeat of the apartheid system. He remains credited for mobilizing urban and rural communities to join the ANC and ultimately the struggle against apartheid in the 40s, 50s and 60s. 

“His bravery was unmatched and it is for these reasons that the former President of the Republic of South Africa, his Excellency J.G Zuma awarded him the National Order of Mendi for Bravery in Silver.

“Importantly, Comrade Stalin used every opportunity in parliament as an MP to advance the interests of ordinary members of society. He was a fearless debater who also prioritized education and the acquisition of knowledge required to achieve the total economic emancipation of the marginalized. His passion for education resulted in a school being named after him,” added Simelane-Zulu.

She concluded by saying as the ANC we are hopeful that during this difficult period, the people of KwaZulu-Natal and the whole country will be comforted knowing that the Eric Stalin Mtshali Secondary School will remain a symbol of hope for many years to come. africa@citypost.co.za

Who exactly is Pik Botha?

 

By VELI MBELE

*“Mr Botha would be remembered for his support for South Africa’s transition to democracy and for his service in the first democratic administration.”-Ntate President Matamela Ramaphosa.

“As the ANC, although Botha was a former minister of the Nationalist Party administration, we acknowledge and are appreciative of his positive contribution towards building a new and better South Africa.”-Ntate Pule Mabe.

“Perhaps his most important contribution was the manner in which he and his colleagues in the department of foreign affairs held the line against growing international pressure until the collapse of international communism in 1989 opened the way to the negotiations that led to the establishment of our non-racial constitutional democracy,” De Klerk.

Roelof Frederik Botha or ‘Pik’ as he was known within the apartheid inner-circle, was one of the most senior leaders of the National Party’s illegitimate-white-racist-criminal-violent-anti-Black settler-colonial regime.

He loyally served the settler-colonial regime for over 40 years of his life. Between 1953 and 1994, he served the settler-colonial regime as legal adviser, ambassador, foreign minister and member of parliament.

He also contested for the leadership of the National Party in 1978. Between 1966 and 1994 he served under three illegitimate-white supremacist heads of the settler-colonial regime, B.J Vorster (1966-78), P.W Botha (1984-89) and F. W. de Klerk (1989-94).

During this period, he was part of the apartheid securocracy that decided on and defended the deaths of thousands of Black people, within apartheid South Africa and neighbouring states, especially South West Africa(later Nambia). This, as you know, was an occupied territory of apartheid South Africa.

In his role as foreign minister, he was a fierce and effective defender of the system of apartheid. Essentially apartheid’s most effective brand manager. Some of the decisions that Pik was part of include the following:

*The assassination of BC leader Onkgopotse Ramothibi Tiro in 1974;

*The massacre of Black students in Soweto in 1976, killing 176 Blacks;

*The assassination of BC leader Mapetla Mohapi in 1976;

*The assassination of BC leader Bantu Biko in 1977;

*The assassination of SWAPO leader, Clemens Kapuuo in 1978;

*The assassination of MK cadre, Solomon Mahlangu in 1979;

*The assassination of ANC leader, Mlungisi Mxenge in 1981;

*The assassination of ANC activist, Vernon Nkadimeng in 1985;

*The assassination of Thamsanqa Mnyele in 1985;

*The Uitenhage (Langa) massacre, where 35 Black people were killed in 1985;

*The Boipatong massacre, where 45 Black people were killed in 1992; and

*The murders of Sadat and Samora Mpendulo (16 years old), Mzwandile Mfeya (12 years old), Sandiso Yose (12 years old) and Thando Mthembu (17), in a SADF cross-border raid in 1993.

They were sleeping when the South African National Defence Force (authorised by the Nobel Peace Laureate De Klerk), pounced on them and without warning, sprayed them with bullets.

Because of his shrewdness (coming from brokering deals on the Afrikan continent, including Zimbabwe’s problematic Lancaster House agreement)-Pik was also part of the delegation of the apartheid inner-circle that co-authored the 90’s CODESA elite pact and all that came with it such as the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).

For his successful role in prolonging the life of white capital at CODESA, he was rewarded with a ministerial post in the Mandela administration. After leaving the Mandela administration, he publicly endorsed President Mbeki and reportedly joined the ANC in the 2000s.

All these stunts were a mark of Pik’s shrewdness. Inspite of all that Pik has done in defence of the brutal-violent-anti-Black system of apartheid, he (like De Klerk) continues to get respectable treatment from the ANC.

This is evident in the number of invitations De Klerk got from ANC state presidents to be a guest at the State of The Nation Address. And the glowing tributes that Pik is now receiving from the ANC.

Pik like P.W Botha, F.W De Klerk and all the other key decision-makers in the apartheid machinery, have never been held accountable (in the true sense) for the atrocities they committed against Black people.

And it doesn’t seem like any of them will ever be held accountable. Instead, it is possible that not only is Pik likely to receive a eulogy from President Ramaphosa, but he is also likely to receive an official funeral. Burn in hell Pik!

MEANWHILE, Harrison Zama wrote that some out of ignorance will criticize Holomisa when he says that Pik Botha was a good minister in a bad government. Holomisa is right. We know Pik Botha. We were old enough in the 80’s. We grew up in the apartheid era. In the mid 80’s, 1986 to be more specific, Pik publicly said that one day SA is gonna have a black president. Prime Minister PW Botha scolded him and nearly fired him for that. Besides that, Pik was different for sure. His apartheid was very dilute. And he was easier to approach than other apartheid animals. He was a listener. But he could do nothing on his own to change the situation. Maybe the reason why he was so good is, that as a Foreign Affairs Minister of that time, he is the one who faced anger and grilling by international countries which hated apartheid. So, Holomisa is right. I second him. Those who do not know Pik must rather shut up. Yeah. And you will hear newborn saying that I am supporting apartheid. And I would call those cheap politics due to an ignoramus. news@citypost.co.za

Ubhuti ka Brian act “innocent”

By SIZWE ZWANE

*AFTER BEING SILENCE for days uBhuti Ka Brian has issued a media statement dismissing allegations that he is was given part of billions from VBS heist. But he failed to prove it but the Hawks might6 not be fooled by the cheap pr exercise. In a statement, he also failed to give a reason why his brother’s name is on the list of people who looted the VBS bank.

Floyd Shivambu said ever since the VBS Heist Report was released, I see weapons of mass deception and propaganda machines hard at work to mislead our people with their fake news.

“For the record, I have never received R10 million from VBS or anyone in my personal account. Faceless sources reportedly to be from South African Reserve Bank, who have ulterior motives, have been misleading journalists and radio presenters with their malicious narrative.

“I have no dealings with VBS and any attempt to link the EFF to the bank for cheap political points is a clear sign of desperation and soon enough people will see through it. The so-called well-placed sources in the SARB is a coward and a liar who misled journalists and can’t even reveal their identity,” said Floyd in a statement.

He added by saying their position on VBS has never changed even when the Bank is under curatorship, that is why we exposed the appointment of Nedbank to take over the accounts of VBS Depositors without due process despite the fact that there are fewer Nedbank branches and Nedbank is the most expensive.

“If our interest was on siphoning money from the dissolved Board Members of VBS, we would have disengaged when the bank was placed under curatorship. We, however, continue to closely monitor how Depositors monies, made an endless call to the Reserve Bank to give people their money and motivated why the Bank should be saved,” added the statement. sizwe@citypost.co.za

 

 

Never dig a grave for someone

NEVER DIG a grave for someone because you might end up in the same grave. Some called it karma and in Sesotho bare ho bohloko ha molamu o kgutlela sefateng.

Those who called for former President Jacob Zuma to step down are not feeling the heat. It started with Nhlanhla Nene the former Finance Minister, now uBhuti ka Brian has been exposed too.

Some will start to see that there was a smear campaign against former President Jacob Zuma as I have stated previously. More inve4stigations need to be done, digging deeper we can find more skeletons into the VBS bank scandal.

*I would like to congratulate Comrade Tito Mboweni for being appointed into Ministry of Finance. The state president has appointed a good candidate with experience but in future, we have to consider the youth.

Youth are not taken seriously and the youth are doing more groundwork and they are always on the ground.

It is time for South Africa to do always with cabinet ministers who are over the age of 70 years because they are old and they must be given a chance to rest.

I don’t have a problem for 70 years old being a member of parliament but being appointed as a cabinet minister or premier I see a problem.

We have experience youth who can contribute political ideas that can help to grow our economy. We must not forget that the youth was in the forefront of the struggle against apartheid and we can give the present generation to proof that youth can make things happen. Amandla!!!
