Cecil John Rhodes *the AmaMpondo king *and a deadly short ball by John Clarke 28 November 2014 The tragic death of batsman Phil Hughes brings to mind another tragedy on the cricket field a hundred years ago The tragic accidental death of Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes from a fast short ball which struck him on the neck has been lamented around the world. Such incidents are so rare as to be considered freakish. Yet a similar incident occurred in South Africa in 1901 when a 38-year-old attorney Edward Jones, batting for Kokstad Cricket Club was struck by on the chest by a fast ball. His funeral “was the largest seen in Kokstad”, with both black and white mourners in their thousands gathering to weep at the untimely death of a remarkable young man. The exceptional and improbable throng was because Jones had lived in the same manner in which he died: by being involved in improbable, exceptional and freakish life vs death situations in his devotion to seeking justice for the oppressed. Nicknamed ...

Zambia 50 years after colonial rule Sata Charles Mwewa IN 2011, I published Zambia: Struggles of My People. In this book I rather presciently predict the future of Zambia from what has gone before. I detail our struggles from pre-colonial days to colonial days to post-colonial days. It is documentation in time of the real struggles of the Zambian people. It is barely three years after Struggles of My People and as I look back I am still touched by the quandary of my people. 2014 announced a Zambian Jubilee, 50 years of self-rule, of self-determination and of freedom from colonial bondage from the former British Empire. It was on October 24th, 1964 when the red-green-orange-black flag was lifted and a new nation called Zambia was created. She was no longer a habitat of Cecil John Rhodes (Northern Rhodesia). The people of Zambia had become tired of being “boys” and wanted to be “men.” Today after 50 years of that so-called independence we are still left with so many questions. Foremost among these q ...

Let’s upgrade our heroes’ shrines WHEN we cherish our Independence, we tend to only marvel at tangible achievements such as land ownership and the eradication of racial segregation. Rarely do we put to the fore the process that brought about this tremendous achievement – a process that involved the sacrifice of thousands of lives of freedom fighters. Not only that. But also the massacre of innocent women and children both inside the country and outside, by the lethal weapons of the repressive Ian Smith’s colonial regime. We have examples of places like Nyadzonia and Chimoio in Mozambique, Freedom Camp in Zambia and Kandeya and Kangara in Mt Darwin and Uzumba respectively. At these centres and many others thousands were massacred by the Rhodesian regime in a desperate bid to discourage us from fighting for our Independence. Outside the Heroes Day, commemorated every year in July, it looks like very little attention if any, let alone respect, is paid to those who died to liberate our country. In fac ...

Cecil John Rhodes was born July 5, 1853. His 1st Will was after his heart attack in 1877 & found a secret society that would extend British rule. He didn't die until 25 years later on March 26, 1902. He had 8 brothers & he went to help his oldest brother, Herbert in 1870 in South Africa. He grew cotton with his brother. They staked a claim in a newly developed diamond field in Kimberly. In 1880 he formed a mining company. He had his Will setup to provide a series of scholarships to Oxford University & its known as the most prestigious scholarship & the 1st large scale programme of international scholarship widely considered the most prestigious.

THE LEGACY OF CECIL JOHN RHODES. Dont you think that the modern foundation of Zimbabwe was designed and built by Cecil John Rhodes ? Should we just condemn him because he was white or because he was a coloniser ? Without him do you think Zimbabwe would be what it is today? Someone suggested that we put him at Heroes Acre . Really . Can Rhodes be a hero ? What do you think ? As for crimes against the people I think Africans are committing more serious crimes and violence against each other than was done by the colonisers . We lack brotherly compassion .
I have a feeling that a large chunk of Zimbabweans are in favor of keeping Cecil John Rhodes' remains on Matopos. I must confess that I am not amazed at all. For over 33 years, President Mugabe and others who share similar thoughts have held arms with this section of Zimbabweans to shield the grave of a British entrepreneur genius. Such is his high status in great zimbabwe, he remains a very significant person in our nation 's troubled history. Such is our indigenous mind! Cecil John Rhodes is unrivaled as a businessman. He falls into the class of capitalist that build the fortresses of Western capitalism, an industrial system that build the West 's economic dominance. It was his company, Central Search Association and the London-based Exploring Company Ltd that secured the royal charter, a document that gave it authority to colonize Zimbabwe. Our great ignorance of thinking that Britain colonized Zimbabwe when in fact it is Britain 's capitalist who are themselves the colonizers. The honey bees of their ...

LANDMARKS OF OUR INDEPENDENCE 2 1896 Zimbabwe's first war of independence called The First Chimurenga took place in 1896 and lasted for only one year to mid 1897. The war was instigated by a Ndebele chief Mlimo, a Zezuru chief Mashayamombe and another Mazowe chief Hwata. The war ended with the assassination of Mlimo and Hwata together with his spirit medium Nehanda Nyakasikana in 1897. Nehanda was Chaminuka's sister, an old Chitungwiza based spirit medium who was killed by Lobengula in 1883 after foretelling the invasion of the country by whites that year. Chaminuka is the greatest ever spirit medium to emerge in Zimbabwe to date. Lobengula finally paid his sin of killing Chaminuka when Star Jameson, Cecil John Rhodes' friend invaded his kraal in Bulawayo in 1883, resulting in him fleeing his kingdom and later his death. The British South African Police took firm control of the country after the assassinations. 1890-1953 The Rise of Rhodesia There were 222 000 European settlers by 1923 in Zimbabwe up from ...

The story of Rhodesia. A tribute to Rhodesia and Rhodesians, and truth. Thought you may like to read. The name Cecil John Rhodes will generally excite debate where it is recognised and most of the comments, particularly amongst the liberal establishment, will be negative. Familiar epithets are rapidly forthcoming. Racist, ruthless, greedy capitalist, oppressor, imperialist. These are brands his legacy will forever contend with but what even his most vehement critics will struggle to deny is that for better or for worse this was a man possessed of astonishing and unselfish vision. It is notable that two figures central to recent history, President Bill Clinton and General Wesley Clarke, the NATO commander in Europe, are proud to announce that they went to Oxford as beneficiaries of Rhodes Scholarships. In Rhodes’ guidelines for selection of candidates for this award it is also interesting to note there is no mention of race. Much about civility, good manners, sportsmanship and understanding of the commo ...

How To Kill A Country Turning a breadbasket into a basket case in ten easy steps—the Robert Mugabe way SAMANTHA POWER Dec 1 2003 Nearly forty years ago Ian Smith, the Prime Minister of Rhodesia, became the first and only white colonial ruler to break away from the British Crown. He had tired of London's nagging about the subjugation of Rhodesian blacks. In 1965 Smith declared independence. "The mantle of the pioneers has fallen on our shoulders," he said, calling on white Rhodesians to maintain standards in a "primitive country." Smith saw himself as an apostle of Cecil John Rhodes, the British magnate who gave Rhodesia its name, and who in the late nineteenth century duped black tribal leaders into signing over the fertile land to white pioneers. Although Rhodesia in 1965 was home to just over 200,000 whites and four million blacks, Smith shared Rhodes's belief that black majority rule would occur "never in a thousand years." Smith was of course wrong. In 1980, after a civil war that cost 30,000 lives, ...
Heroes fall like skittles and the bad guys win. There’s high-level politics, hustlers, Zuma lawyers and middlemen. It adds grist to the mill of the loud anti-BEE lobby. It makes us look B-grade. It is a cocktail of shenanigans, hustle and cowboy frontier capitalism. Here’s how it starts. Enter Nick Holland, the chief executive of Gold Fields. Government is getting hungry and angry – the face of the mining industry looks much like it did when Cecil John Rhodes started the precursor to Holland’s gold multinational: lily white. Holland needs blacks, but where would he find BEE partners? If you look at Gold Fields’ executive committee, it is a challenge to employment equity laws. By my count, Holland has two black South Africans and a Ghanaian reporting to him, while the rest are white men of a certain age and culture. I think it is the way of large parts of corporate South Africa – you choose inner circles who look like you. My guess is Holland had no black networks and did not move easily in a b ...
Why does the company of Cecil John Rhodes (that's what Gold Fields is) think it's OK to act like this in the 21st century? Well, we let it.

Today in History - 5th July 1295 - Scotland and France formed an alliance, the so-called 'Auld Alliance', against their common enemy - England. 1610 - John Guy, English merchant adventurer and politician, set sail from Bristol with 39 other colonists, bound for Newfoundland. He became the first Proprietary Governor of Newfoundland and led the first attempt to establish a colony on the island. 1687 - Isaac Newton published his 'Principia', stating Newton's laws of motion, Newton's law of gravitation, and a derivation of Kepler's laws of the motion of the planets.

In memory of Vuyo Apartheid never died in South Africa. It inspired a world order upheld by force and illusion 19 September 2012 The murder of 34 miners by the South African police, most of them shot in the back, puts paid to the illusion of post-apartheid democracy and illuminates the new worldwide apartheid of which South Africa is both an historic and contemporary model. In 1894, long before the infamous Afrikaans word foretold "separate development" for the majority people of South Africa, an Englishman, Cecil John Rhodes, oversaw the Glen Grey Act in what was then the Cape Colony. This was designed to force blacks from agriculture into an army of cheap labour, principally for the mining of newly discovered gold and other precious minerals.

GWERU PUPIL DROWNS DURING SWIMMING LESSON TRAGEDY befell Cecil John Rhodes (CJR) Primary School in Gweru when a Grade Three pupil drowned during a swimming lesson.

He identified the girl as Samantha Phiri. “We can confirm the death of an eight-year- old girl, Samantha Phiri who drowned at the CJR Primary School swimming pool at about 2.30pm yesterday (Wednesday).

Matebeleland is a political pacesetter Written by Khumbulani Moyo,UMthwakazi Review Thursday, 10 January 2013 Matebeleland politics gets interesting at every moment and at every turn. The people of Matebeleland have always been pacesetters and strategists in the political arena and revolutionary politics. It is in their DNA to be political and revolutionary but more-so this is a legacy that was bequeathed to them by their forbearers who had a well-organized and oiled political, civil and militarized Matebeleland Kingdom headed by King Mzilikazi and later his son King Lobengula. They were pacesetters in nation building. They were pacesetters and strategists in resisting colonialism against Cecil John Rhodes and his cronies in 1893 via our warrior impis who fought gallantly and won battles of historical note in the valleys and plains of Matebeleland, defending a piece of our African motherland that was under attack from the forces of European imperialism and occupation. Our battle history narrative points u ...

Morgan and Company is explained by George Wheeler, in Pierpont Morgan and Friends, the Anatomy of a Myth, page 17: "But there were steps being taken even now to bring him out of the financial backwaters--and they were not being taken by Pierpont Morgan himself. The first suggestion of his name for a role in the recharging of the reserve originated with the London branch of the House of Rothschild, Belmont’s employers."38 Wheeler goes on to explain that a considerable anti-Rothschild movement had developed in Europe and the United States which focused on the banking activities of the Rothschild family.

How Naijiria was made--Bought and Sold... Sir George Goldie Goldie, Sir George [Credit: Courtesy of the National Portrait Gallery, London] Sir George Goldie, original name George Dashwood Goldie-taubman (born May 20, 1846, near Douglas, Isle of Man—died Aug. 20, 1925, London), British colonial administrator, organizer of a chartered company (1886) that established British rule on the Niger River, who was chiefly responsible for the development of northern Nigeria into an orderly and prosperous British protectorate and later a major region of independent Nigeria. Although his importance in West Africa may have equalled that of Cecil John Rhodes in South Africa, he differed from Rhodes in his preference for obscurity; he destroyed his papers and pronounced a curse on any of his children should they write about him after his death. Educated at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, Goldie served briefly (1865–67) in the Royal Engineers. After travelling for several years in Egypt and the Sudan, he formed ...

Cecil Rhodes & De Beers: Genocide Diamonds Cecil Rhodes: A Bad Man in Africa THE EVIL THAT MEN DO LIVES AFTER THEM – AND RARELY MORE MISERABLY THAN IN THE CASE OF Cecil Rhodes, WHO DIED 100 YEARS AGO THIS MONTH. By Matthew Sweet North of the Zambezi, they have long known about the suppression of free speech, about the bloody redistribution of land along racial lines, about politicians happy to employ armed – and sometimes uniformed – mobs to kill their opponents. They are practices imported to this region, along with the railways, by the British. Unlike the African press, the Western media rarely invoke the name of Cecil John Rhodes: nearly a century after his death – on 26 March 1902 – his name is more associated with Oxford Scholarships than with murder. It’s easier to focus on the region’s more recent, less Anglo white supremacists: Ian Smith, for instance, who – despite his Scottish background – seems cut from the same stuff as those Afrikaner politicians who nurtured and maintained ...

It's Cecil John Rhodes! In the room named after him at the Rand club.
On 1 September 1870, Cecil John Rhodes first set foot on African soil. When Rhodes first arrived in South Africa, he lived on money lent to him by his aunt Sophia. As the land in Natal was unsuited to growing cotton, he only remained in Natal until October 1871, when he moved to the diamond fields just opening up in Kimberley. Financed by Nathan Mayer Rothschild & Sons, over the next 17 years, Rhodes succeeded in buying up all the smaller diamond mining operations in the Kimberley area. He started De Beers in 1880, and fonded Gold Fields of South Africa Ltd in 1887. His monopoly of the world’s diamond supply was sealed in 1889 through a strategic partnership with the London-based Diamond Syndicate. They agreed to control the world’s diamond supply to maintain high prices. To this very day, they burn diamonds in Kimberley if too many are found, as this would lower the price of diamonds. In fact, artificial scarcity of diamonds are maintained in order to keep their prices high. The agreement so ...
Thembani Dube: What are the key reasons for seeking the restoration of a Mthwakazi state at this point in time? Paul Siwela: Mthwakazi nation is motivated by the following reasons to seek to break away from Zimbabwe and re-establish her Republic. Mthwakazi people in their diversity were independent and sovereign state and recognized by other nations that include Britain under Queen Victoria and concluded some treaties but later illegally invaded us, Transvaal under Paul Kruger, Barotseland under Lewanika, Botswana under Khama Germany. Mashonalnd albeit without having some recognized authority thus prompting King Lobengula to exercise some suzerainty over the territory just to mention a few. Mthwakazi lost her sovereignty through unprovoked aggression from the British imperialist forces under the command and direction of Cecil John Rhodes who later amalgamated our country with Mashonaland ,the latter day Zimbabwe without our consent and thus up to day we are bound by some colonial decision which must be ...
King Leopold II’s hidden genocide Written by Patriot Reporter NO doubt, we know a lot about Cecil John Rhodes’s reign of exploitation and plunder in Rhodesia. We also know that his desire to conquer our land went as far as claiming our own spiritual shrine at Matopos as his burial site. Rhodes was British. He was a rogue, and a greedy colonialist. What most of us do not know, is that the evils of Cecil John Rhodes in Africa did not reach the extent shown during the bloody and ruthless reign of King Leopold II of Belgium in the Democratic Republic of Congo, when it was still The Congo. It is most surprising that the deaths of over 10 million Congolese people during King Leopold’s reign of terror is hardly mentioned when the world speaks of genocide in some books on African history. Unless we dig deep into the history of Africa’s past, we will never know. The small country of Belgium is the subject of this column and the role played by the notorious King Leopold II who lived between 1835 and 1909. K ...
