Don’t kill the boer, rather kiss him

“Whites not the enemy” in the democratic South Africa.

“Speaking at a wreath-laying ceremony in honour of the fourth president of the ANC, Josiah Tshangana Gumede, who led the party from 1924 to 1930, Zuma said the singing of such songs in a democratic dispensation was “tantamount to making peace with a so-called enemy while waving a weapon”.

This was after a struggle song, the lyrics of which, when loosely translated, are “We as the soldiers of Umkhonto we Sizwe are prepared to kill these Boers” was yesterday sung at Gumede’s graveside, at Mountain Rise Cemetery, in Pietermaritzburg, with new lyrics.

The new line is “We as the soldiers of Umkhonto we Sizwe are prepared to reconcile with these Boers”.”

Zuma said yesterday: “The debate on the songs with inflammatory lyrics is important. When we’re moulding our country we need to say we unite all South Africans, even those we fought against [during the struggle].

“There’s no need for certain people to feel unwelcome in their country. We need to include everyone in our country because the ANC will rule the country until those that are dead rise back to life.”

Freedom Front Plus spokesman CornĂ© Mulder welcomed Zuma’s remarks. “I fully agree with President Zuma when he says the apartheid lyrics should be reviewed.”

    As die privaat sekotr, ofte wel die publike kapitaal genoegsaam uitgewis (vermors ) word dan kan hulle aankondig dat kapitalisme gefaal het en dat n kommunistiese stelsel geimplimenteer moet word. Hulle het dit al op Tv gese.Dit is waarom die anc nie skroom om miljarde te blaas nie, dink maar aan die sokker stadiums, Gautrein, tolhekke, krag , brandstof, ontwapening, grondhervorming, BEE en ander bedrog ens wat met die publiek se befondsing gedoen word en geen sent word terug gesit nie, alle opbrengste word elders heen gekannaliseer. Mense wat verarm is kan nie politieke weerstand bied nie.Die prentjie wat dit skep is dat die privaatsekotr besig is om bankrot geforseer te word. Op n sekere vlak sal die enigste oplossing n harde diktatorskap wees en die blanke sal letterlik van honger omkom, die res sal vermoor word. Die Nguni sal terugkeer na waar hulle uit Afrika kom en die NWO sal die land se bronne na willekeur stroop onder toesig ban hulle VN wat toesig hou.Vir die’ mense wat dink die belasting geld wat jy betaal Dis nie eers n druppel in die emmer nie, hulle stel nie daarin belang nie, dis eerder n beslommernis.
