Minister’s company implicated in school book scandal

They burned down schools under the Apartheid government and blamed “sub-standard” education.  They still blame Apartheid, but now their fuel never gets to the school because of corruption.

cactusThe school book scandal in Limpopo province has now implicated the national minister of education. Her company makes money out of school books that do not get delivered, it seems.

At the centre of the textbook crisis in Limpopo is a politically connected company called EduSolutions. Minister Angie Motshekga has been working with this company since 2008 when she was still Gauteng Education MEC.

The Limpopo government irregularly awarded a R320 million contract to EduSolutions for textbook provision to Limpopo schools. The evaluation and specification committee was ignored at the time the contract was awarded.

This contract was due to be cancelled as soon as the national intervention team arrived in the province to run the Education Department.

Limpopo Education Administrator Anis Karodia now claims that the Minister initially obstructed the cancellation of the contract, preferring for government to continue doing business with EduSolutions instead.

Motshekga made this call even though textbooks were late to Gauteng schools back in 2008 when the Minister was Education MEC in Gauteng and doing business with EduSolutions. EduSolutions is also implicated in a fraud scandal for charging government R13 a pencil.

The obstruction by the Minister continued for a month and a half, according to Mr Karodia, before Motshekga finally agreed that books could be ordered directly from publishers.

While this was happening, Minister Motshekga was promising the public that all learners would receive their books when schools opened in Limpopo. This was said at the announcement of the matric results on 5 January.

Second revolution against whites must come, says Zuma

from: Praag

zuma-noteJohannesburg – The ANC’s second transition is necessary to overcome the compromises it made in the fight for democracy, President Jacob Zuma said on Tuesday.

“One of the causes of the slow pace to economic freedom is that ahead of [the first democratic election in] 1994… we went through a negotiations process,” Zuma said in Midrand.

“We had to make certain compromises in the national interest, and these were absolutely necessary to make. We had to be cautious about restructuring the economy in order to maintain economic stability and confidence at the time.”

Zuma was opening the policy conference of the ruling African National Congress.

He said the apartheid era’s economic power had remained intact.

“The ownership of the economy is still primarily in the hands of white males, in which it has always been.”

A document on the second transition was one of the ANC’s 13 policy documents which would be discussed during the four-day conference.

Zuma said the second transition would make the country a “true democratic developmental state… which has a number of instruments it can use to facilitate change”.

The first transition was still important because it had ushered in an era of democracy in South Africa.

“The time has come to do something more drastic to accelerate change towards economic transformation and freedom.”

Zuma asked delegates to discuss the notion of a second transition when dealing with the strategy and tactics document.

“It is time to ask questions about the present and future… the last 18 years was the first transition. We are calling for a dramatic shift… to deal with the triple challenge[s] of poverty, unemployment and inequality.”

More incitement to violence from ANCYL

from: SA Promo Magazine

lamolaViolence and public threats of war against Afrikaners, white farmers and white English-speaking South Africans by members or the ruling ANC party's youth league has escalated considerably in recent weeks threatening to explode into civil war.

This follows a statement issued by ANC Youth Leader Ronald Lamola being interpreted by most observers as a 'declaration of war against farmers'. Lamola said during Youth Day celebrations during the month of June that it would be an illusion if South Africans believe they can get their land back peacefully. In a speech made in Durban Lamola called for the expropriation of (white farmers') land without compensation. He said youth unemployment could not be dealt with unless land was expropriated. "We need an act as forceful as war to bring it back to the Africans," he said.

Lamola's statement so alarmed civil-rights organisation Afriforum that they called an urgent meeting with Lamola and some of his comrades. After the meeting Afriforum's Charl Oberholzer Tweeted: "Just finished ANCYL meet: they are highly aggressive and have much bigger plans than our people had realised'. Those close to Afriforum say the members of the delegation were "rudely awakened" to the fact that ANC's younger generation had "extensive war plans" against whites and farmers in particular.

Meanwhile the Mpumalanga legislature's DA-leader, Anthony Benadie, lodged a criminal charge of intimidation and incitement to violence against Lamola. The Transvaal Agricultural Union of SA and the Verkenners (Afrikaans Scouts) movements both issued statements in quick succession, condemning Lamola's "war-talk". Both groups responded by saying that "Afrikaners and Boers now had no other choice left except to get ready to defend themselves against a war which was declared against them."

Azapo: Mandela is “sell-out”

Maybe this will wake up some people.  Maybe they will begin to understand the true nature of the beast.  Maybe they will realise what many white South Africans have known for a few decades – that many black tribes have no interest in equality or diversity.

Or maybe they will continue to be useful idiots.

Azapo calls on 'sell-out' Mandela to apologise 'before he dies'

THE Azanian People's Organisation's youth league has called on former president Nelson Mandela to apologise to the nation "before he dies" for selling out black people's struggle.

The league's president, Amukelani Ngobeni, said in a statement that Mandela would not have peace should he die without apologising for "selling out black people's struggle through the secret talks with the apartheid government".

Ngobeni said Mandela entered into secret talks and agreed on a compromised constitution which today makes it very difficult, or almost impossible, for government to deliver in its duties to service the citizens.

He said they were following with interest developments around Mandela's health, saying: "Many of his friends did not get an opportunity to apologise before they died, and he must consider himself lucky and use the opportunity for his soul to rest peacefully before it is too late".

He added: "Mandela and his friends were excited and could not wait to occupy the global political space at the expense of the struggle for complete political,  social and economic emancipation."

Nelson Mandela Foundation spokesman Sello Hatang said Mandela had always maintained "that he was always acting as part of the collective".

He added it would be best for the ANC to comment on Ngobeni's statement.

However, ANC spokesman Keith Khoza said his organisation would not dignify the statement with a comment.
