Tribalism is alive and well in South Africa.
Black people don’t even like each other. How can we expect them to like whites?
Let us wait for January 6, and see where this leads to.
It might be fun!

Thembu king to duck jail with ‘independence’
Cape Town – The king of the abaThembu – facing a 15-year jail sentence for a string of violent crimes – has hit on a novel solution to his legal woes: He plans to form an independent state.
The announcement was made yesterday by his representative, lawyer Votani Majola. It followed an earlier ultimatum that President Jacob Zuma publicly apologise to the abaThembu tribe for the “humiliation” of the king, Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo, in court. It had also demanded that all charges against the king be scrapped and that the government pay R80-billion in compensation.
Dalindyebo was sentenced to jail by a Mthatha judge earlier this month for offences including culpable homicide, kidnapping, arson and assault with intent to commit grievous bodily harm. He is on bail pending appeal.
Majola said the abaThembu would “withdraw from the South African government” on January 6 to form an independent state. He said the state of Thembuland would include at least KwaZulu Natal, the Eastern, Western and Northern Cape, and parts of the Free State and Gauteng. – Sapa
