A New Approach to the National Dialogue in Sudan that will Stop the Wars, Address the Humanitarian Crisis and Lead to Democratic Transformation Presented by Yasir Arman to Sudanese and Non-Sudanese Activists and to a Chatham House Roundtable on Wednesday, August 20, 2014 In one of his brilliant messages to Field Marshall Jafar Numeri, the late Dr. John Garang de Mabior in 1984 proposed a national constitutional conference as a mechanism to settle the issues of the civil war and to address the historical question of how Sudan is to be governed, before who governs it. It is known that Sudan is a country of historical and contemporary diversity that truly represents the diversity of the African continent. It is well established today, that Sudan needs a new national project and social contract, based on equal citizenship, democracy and social justice and one that will take Sudan into a new social, political and economic dispensation. This issue has been raised on different occasions and it is more import ...

Thabo Mbeki grew up in a broken family, dad never home, mom super yet him n Moeletsi are highly educated...if u want something u get it.
you know comrades anger has never solved anything, conferences come and go leaders come and go but the ANC remains, it is very important that after conferences we put our differences aside and become united in taking the organisation foward, it pains me to see some comrades still being bitter after conferences but then no one will lead forever even the great son of the soil Nelson Mandela passed the baton to Thabo Mbeki, then wena who are you thinking that ul lead forever?

Blacks here is a simple test you can do at home to quantify just how mentally enslaved you are. If you agree with any of the following you are totally mentally enslaved: * You believe South Afrika belongs to all who live it * You believe in the idea of South Afrka being a Rainbow Nation * You consider Mandela to be an Icon and Hero of the Struggle. A True Liberator * You consider the ANC to be Heroic Liberation Movement * You consider Thabo Mbeki to be a Hero and Giant of Afrika * You do NOT have any sense of ownership of your Stolen Land and Vast Mineral Wealth. Instead you actually see all the White Settler Thieves that currently own our land and mineral resources as the rightful owners. * You think Blacks that want the Land the Land and Mineral Wealth back are lazy. And want everything for free instead of working for it all. * You think Blacks that want our stolen land and mineral resources returned want to Ruin "Our" Economy. * You think you own the car and house you live in for which you are heavily ...

Ayo Arannilewa Kay Lord wrote.A peculiar case is that of former President of South Africa, Dr Thambo Mbeki and the incumbent President, Jacob Zuma. Thambo Mbeki emerged as the South African President and leader of ANC based on the popular appeal of the great son of Africa, Dr Nelson Mandela in whose government he was the Vice President. Mbeki was a UI and Oxford University trained Economist. He is urbane, sophisticated and well travelled. He belongs to that group within the ANC which South Africans termed elitist. As a President, he did well. He grew the South African economy to be the foremost in Africa. The white elites, especially those that drive the economy of South Africa can relate to him. Also, few within the black community that are highly educated can also relate to Mbeki. In fact, they made u .. ...

Julius Malema meets with Nelson Mandela. He asks him"Mr President, how did you run such an efficient government? Are there any tips you can give to me? "Well," says Mandela:the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people. Malema frowns. "But how do I know the people around me are really intelligent?" Mandela takes a sip of tea. "Oh my boy that's easy. You just ask them to answer an intelligence riddle." Mandela pushes a button on his intercom. "Please send Thabo Mbeki in here, would you?" Thabo Mbeki walks into the room. Thabo mbeki "Yes, my President?" Mandela smiles. "Answer me this please Thabo. Your mother and Father have a child. It is not your brother and it is not your sister. Who is it?"Without pausing for a moment, Thabo Mbeki answers: "That would be me my president." "Yes! Very good," says Mandela Back in Luthuli House Malema asks to speak with ANC President Zuma.

BH EVERYDAY - the Tupac Shakur/Eddie Levert/Kappa Kamp edition Love, Laugh, Donate Life - N.A.M. Denmark Vesey led his famous slave rebellion in Charleston, SC, on this date in 1822. The Supreme Court decided, on this date in 1969, that the House of Representatives had violated the constitution when it suspended Adam Clayton Powell, Jr. from his congressional seat. The "subway vigilante," Bernard Goetz, viewed by many as racist, was acquitted of attempted murder charges, on this date in 1987, for his shooting of four Black youths on a New York subway. Thabo Mbeki, in a landslide victory, was elected to succeed South Africa's first Black president, Nelson Mandela. Mbeki, who had been deputy president of South Africa and leader of the African National Congress, assumed the duties of president on this date in 1999.

Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki is an Afrikan politician, activist and former President of South Afrika. Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki was born on June 18, 1942 in Mbewuleni, Cape Province, Union of South Africa. He is one of four children of Epainette and Govan Mbeki. People like to identify Thabo Mbeki as an independent and original thinker, but one who remains close to the more visible leadership. His profile as a policy shaper and mediator in the anti-apartheid movement has been built up over a lifetime of involvement. He was born in Idutywa, Transkei, where both his parents were teachers and activists. His father, Govan, was a leading figure in ANC (African National Congress) activities in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. A young Mbeki joined the ANC Youth League at 14 and quickly became active in student politics. When his schooling at Lovedale Academy was interrupted by a strike in 1959, he completed his studies at home. Then he moved to Johannesburg, coming under the guidance of Walter Sisulu and Duma Nokwe. It was ...
AY 16 JUNE 2014 Sudanese military offensive prevents Mbeki’s visit to SPLM-N areas: Arman June 15, 2014 (KHARTOUM) - The ongoing military offensive led by the Sudanese government army prevented the head of the African Union High-Level Implementation Panel (AUHIP) from conducting a visit to the rebel areas in South Kordofan, Blue Nile states, and Darfur region, said SPLM-N top negotiator Yasir Arman. UNOCHA in its weekly bulletin of 8 June said the AUHIP head and chief mediator Thabo Mbeki was expected to visit the southern parts of Blue Nile State and the refugee camps in South Sudan between 13 and 14 June to *** possibilities for delivering humanitarian aid to civilians in SPLM-N controlled areas. “The NCP government sabotaged this visit which was proposed by the SPLM/N delegation at the last round of talks,” said Arman when reached by Sudan Tribune on Sunday. “The visit was supposed to inject new momentum in the peace process but Khartoum is interested in war despite their failures to achieve .. ...
Some time in the late 1970s, President Thabo Mbeki was either in Tanzania or Lusaka. He received a visit from one of the leaders of uMkhonto weSizwe, whose name now eludes me. This man was complaining to TM, saying that there's a mass of young people back home in South Afrika calling themselves the Black Consciousness Movement. This group of young people, he argued, was ungovernable. It refused to join the ANC underground operations, it refused to subscribe to the Freedom Charter, it was just a bunch of anarchic youths driven by passionate "hatred" of White people. This leader was frustrated and asked TM what must be done with such anarchists. TM responded: "Bring them into the ANC". TM posited that the ANC is not an organisation that throws its hands in the air and gives up on young people; it is an organisation that engages them and attempts to convince them. It takes them with their ideological "flaws", their lack of strategies and tactics, their youthful arrogance, their "misguided" militancy and all ...
This is Incredulous to say the least! Today I read of the funeral of Epainette Mbeki the mother of Former President Thabo Mbeki, who lived her entire life in this rural village, where there is electricity, but no sanitation and no water, the people here are totally impoverished. You would think that in his time as President Mr. Mbeki would have sorted his own villlage where he grew up, with decent sanitation and clean drinking water, this is a basic human right. Not So! They are living in the same backward conditions that he lived as a child. When she was alive MaMbeki helped the community where she could. Then there's Jacob Zuma who blew R200 million of tax payers money on his Nkandla residence. How bizarre! The one President spent No money uplifting his village, the other one went completely overboard.
Zelda le Granje shows that Ntate Mandela took reconciliation too far. It was a snake waiting for the right time to strike. She is spitting on the grave of Madiba. I hope this will never happen to Thabo Mbeki, Kgalema Motlanthe an Jacob Zuma. What a shame.

(furious):What.? :I'm joking teacher,Witbank!!
No wonder they insult us, they look us down, they think labelling us will neutralise what we have and what we capable of, we are kings and queens, we are lions and lionesses, we are princes and princesses in every aspect of life, we dominate, we take a lead, we excel, we are the greatest writers of all times, Maya Angelou and Achebe are examples of what I'm talking about.

Mbeki's mother dies Johannesburg - Former President Thabo Mbeki's 98-year-old mother Epainette has died, the SABC reported on Saturday. The Mbeki family confirmed that the matriarch had died at a private hospital in East London in the Eastern Cape, the national broadcaster reported. She was admitted to hospital two weeks ago for medical observation after she experienced respiratory problems. Epainette Mbeki was born in February 1916 in Mangoloaneng at Mount Fletcher, Transkei. She taught at the Taylor Street Secondary School after being educated at the Mariazell Mission, the Lovedale Teachers college and graduating from the Adams College in Durban. She taught with Govan Mbeki, whom she later married. In 1937, Epainette Mbeki became the second black woman to join the Communist Party of SA, after Josie Palmer. LIBERATION MOVEMENT She then became an active member of the liberation movement in Durban. She married Govan in 1940 and moved to the Transkei where the family set up a trading store in the Idutywa di ...

As South Africa mourns the death of Mam' Epainette Mbeki,may we never forget what she gave up for the struggle of our liberation. A husband in Govan Mbeki for 24 years in Robben Island. In a last-born son, Jama Mbeki who was killed in Lesotho. In a grandson, Kwanda Mbeki, only off-spring of ever Honourable Former President Thabo Mbeki who dissappeared in 1981 to this day even after the TRC, there is still no trace. Ultimately, in a child she gave us 28 years of exile of Thabo Mbeki and who thereafter gave his whole life to South Africa and Africa. May we always remember.
The ANC would like to send it's deepest condolences to Thabo Mbeki and his family on the passing of his mother Epainette Mbeki who left us on 7 June 2014
I know mothers that raised legends like Solomon Mahlangu, Kgalema Motlante, and Thabo Mbeki- may their beautiful Souls Rest in Peace.
Epainette Mbeki, mother of Former President Thabo Mbeki has passed on. RIP Ma Mbeki. Our condolences to the family.
Her Beautiful Spirit Lives On: the sun has set Embewuleni. Epainette Mbeki, the mother to our brightest star (Thabo Mbeki) is no more. The icy cold that still chills us to the bone, was the harbinger of death's carriage. Smile not oh evil death, you are no victor here. Though we mourn the closing of a curtain, our hearts rejoice as we celebrate a life well lived. Bereft of her living sons, MaMbeki became a mother to a village; widowed with a breathing husband, Epainette comforted bereaved families in Mbewuleni; harassed & robbed of daily joy, her shining spirit became the only hope to so many. A diligent teacher to whom many owe their enlightenment. One of the first African women to swell the ranks of the then Communist Party Of South Africa. She also became the agent of Inkululeko - the Party's newspaper. An untiring activist who was the engine of the Communist Party's night school. Made of stunner stuff, she was from a resilient and persevering generation: Govan Mbeki, Oliver Reginald Tambo, Walter S .. ...
'Last year, in an interview, she mentioned to the reporter that she had been invited by Zuma to a function: “How does he expect me to attend his function when he has fired my son?” she responded.

She bore Africa a bright light among a luminous galaxy of stars. What a lady!

Please allow me to take this opportunity to salute Thabo Mbeki's mother, Gogo Epainette Mbeki, who passed away early this morning at the age of 98. I was a staunch admirer of MaMbeki, a fearless old lady who always spoke her mind without fear or favour. MaMbeki is a hero. Heroes never die. They simply go home to rest!!
Epainette Mbeki (née Moerane) (born 16 February 1916 and died 7 June 2014), commonly known as "MaMbeki", is the mother of former South African President Thabo Mbeki and widow of political activist Govan Mbeki. She lived in Ngcingwane, near Dutywa. Condolences to the former President of the Republic and his family. Rest in eternal peace.

President Jacob Zuma's new cabinet, announced on Sunday, is expected to cost South Africans more than R1-billion. He has added two ministries . His cabinet is one of the biggest in the world - he has more cabinet ministers than the US, Germany and Japan, all of which have much bigger economies and broader tax bases. South Africa now has 35 ministers, each of whom earns about R2.1-million a year. T he 37 deputy ministers will each earn R1.7-million. Zuma earns about R2.62-million a year and his deputy, Cyril Ramaphosa, gets R2.36-million . Economist Mike Schussler said: "I'm not sure if a bigger cabinet is going to make a difference or just add to the cost of government." The budget for The Presidency has soared from R257-million in 2007, during President Thabo Mbeki's tenure, to R329-million in 2009. Kgalema Motlanthe held office from September 2008 until elections brought Zuma to power in May 2009. The cost of the cabinet rose to R727-million in 2010, R959-million in 2011 and R1. 1-billion in 2012. It is ...
Thabo Mbeki was born second, after Linda. Then followed Moeletsi and Jama (stories on their own).
WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT SOMETHING THAT IS RELATED IS NOT THE SOMETHING...! PAN AFRICANISM V/S AFRICAN RENAISSANCE. I wrote this after a comrade of mine told me that "Thabo Mbeki is speaking Pan Africanism and why don't we support him", Pan Africanism is about restoring and regaining African glory, Pan Africanism is about regaining what was stolen (land) and restoring what was lost. Pan Africanism is about restoring what God has created that was destroyed by foreign invaders. While African-Renaissance mean re-born. The word ''Renaissance" means re-born, reborn/re-birth/born again in Christianity means a new person or a different person it means you are no longer the person that you were before. Renaissance derive from Roman Empire after Rome conquered Africa (Egypt) then stole ideas from Africa to civilized Rome since Rome was not civilized while Africa was long a civilized nation before any nation in the world therefore Rome came with the word Renaissance in other to build a new civilized Rome. In conclus ...

I wrote the piece below to recognize an African American young man who got accepted into all of the Ivy League institutions. On this Africa Day, please know about Virgil Marais, a South African-African who has received a full scholarship from Harvard University. The 19yr old Durbanite matriculated in 2012, he took a gap after that where he worked as a tutor & sales assistant at a printing company while preparing for his Harvard application. Marais and four other "born frees" have been offered places at the prestigious university, not forgetting Lindiwe Mazibuko. When I pondered about the personal significance of this story, especially on this day. It was only know that Thabo Mbeki's: I am an African speech made perfect sense to me. To see young Africans who will go to foreign lands and introduce themselves as Africans who owe their being to the hills and the valleys, the mountains and the glades, the rivers, the deserts, the trees, the flowers, the seas and the ever-changing seasons that define the face . ...

"When I left we had 57 MP and that I became a leader of the opposition and Thabo Mbeki succeeded Mandela, I went to see Mandela several times and to say look the warmth in this relationship has cooled between the leading party and opposition and what do you think we can do to revive it. He looked at me and said you Tony the Key man in Government is JZ (Jacob Zuma) I was very surprised, Jacob Zuma was the DP but was never in much in the power frame under Mbeki administration and I thought now the old guy has lost touch of where the power is, off course Madiba anticipated something which was going to happen which few others thought was probable at the time, Mandela did hold Zuma in high regard and saw his ascent before a lot of others." ~ Tony Leon Till this day people are still asking why this
In SAfm- I was listening to great intellectual speakers voicing their sentiments in the 5th Afrika Day lecture of Thabo Mbeki Foundation talking about the future of this great continent. On this lecture, I expecting to hear about the role of afrikan leadership - military and economic security of the continent- Pan-Afrikanism - Unity and peace in the continent- Educational system of the continent- Technology - Sovereignty and independence - Balkanization of the continent! The guess speaker spoke about some of these attributes that I've mention above that hinders Afrikan transformation. And in future, I'm willing to hear more about dialogues of this magnitude! I was dubious about leadership of Thabo Mbeki while he was a president of the country. He had the element of being an aloof observer, playing cards on his own chest. But now for me, he has shown me the charisma of the great leader in the continuation of the Afrikan Renaissance, in believing that Pan-Afrikanism is the only remediation in the tribulat . ...

DA always have something to say Jehova!!! The Democratic Alliance (DA) wasted no time in criticising the governing ANC party’s choice for speaker at the first sitting of the fifth democratic parliament on Wednesday. DA MP Wilmot James raised concerns that the appointment of Baleka Mbete will undermine the independence of parliament and prevent parliament from fully holding the executive accountable. Mbete’s nomination was challenged by the DA, the party instead nominated former Eastern Cape premier Nosimo Balindlela for speaker. But the ANC’s majority in parliament meant Mbete was elected. The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), the third biggest party in parliament, abstained from voting. Mbete thus returns to the speaker position she held for four years between April 2004 and August 2008, before she acted as the country’s deputy president for seven months following the dismissal of Former President Thabo Mbeki. James raised concerns that the previous speaker Max Sisulu was replaced because the ANC ...
The perpetuation of intellectual assault both inside and outside the ranks of the ANC should be condemned once and for all.there is a growing trend in media circles to paint a picture of the Anc as an organisation of singing, unthinking neonendatharls.unfortunately this is aided by a new creed inside the organisation of villifying anyone who is viewed as "clever".The Anc was founded by esteemed thinkers like Sol Plaatjie, John Dube, Pixley Seme, Selope Thema and others.these men, bcoz of their education were able to analyse and and critique the unjust society in which black ppl lived .The ANC in exile was the only movement in the world with a formal political educational system.it is for this reason that it produced foremost intellectuals like Pallo Jordan, Thabo Mbeki, Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, Naledi Pandor, Chris Hani, the Pahad brothers, Joel Nethitenzhe and others who continue to be it's mainstay today.Young cadres of today should learn from Lulu Johnson, Nathi Mtethwa, Fikile Mbalula, Vuyiswa Tulelo, ...

Here was I just now, bragging to my Professor about how Thabo Mbeki was a lady's man at Sussex University. He just looked at me, smiled and said: 'Chris Hani is more interesting in that department'. lol
The appointment of David Makhura as Gauteng premier could signal the end of the dominant Jacob Zuma-aligned group within the ANC Does the appointment of certain premiers in ANC-controlled provinces signal the beginning of the end for Jacob Zuma? One ANC leader who asked not to be named described the outcome on the appointment of premiers this week as testimony to the tectonic shift and the beginning of the end of Zuma’s reign as his influence in exerting his preferences, was “severely curtailed”. In 2009, Zuma and his supporters were firmly in control, and influenced decisions on who became provincial premier in the eight provinces governed by the ANC. This time around, however, it appears the influence of the dominant group aligned to Zuma within the ANC national executive committee (NEC) was minimal. Former presidents Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki had powers to hire and fire premiers, but this policy was changed during the ANC’s watershed national conference in Polokwane, where Zuma toppled Mbe ...
Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has ridiculed President Jacob Zuma, calling him a “domkop” (fool) while slamming the rest of the ANC and union federation Cosatu for having “sold out”. Malema also apologised to the people of Eastern Cape for his role in having Former President Thabo Mbeki fired and replacing him with Zuma. He said this was a “terrible mistake”. “We treated one of your own in a manner that was not correct. We did not listen to the silent communication and advice from President Mbeki. The people of Eastern Cape must find it in their hearts to forgive us for leading such an uniformed revolution. “Today, Nigeria is number one economically in Africa because of that ‘domkop’ we have here for a president. The man can’t think. Don’t mistake a big head for a big mind. There are no ideas coming from that man,” he said at an EFF rally in Mdantsane, East London, yesterday. Malema said this was where the importance of education was highlighted, a reference ...
I'm starting to get worried and concern about those who speak against the ANC. At school we learned about great leaders and communist, like Fidel Castro, Joe Slovo, Chris Hani and others. But after Polokwane 2007 things started to change. If you disagree with the ANC or the SACP they get rid of you. The likes of Julius Mamela, Bheki Cele, Thabo Mbeki and Comrade Vavi. Now they've suspended another cadre, Mr Ntola who also didn't agree with Blade Nzimande and the SACP. Hey I'm telling disagree with the top dogs you'll find yourself jobless. Why don't they get rid of Angie Motshekga the likes of Thulas Nxesi and other's who are failing at government level. I am Z Nduna! !
Muammar Gaddafi, Thabo Mbeki, Robert Mugabe had a dream,all that is left is capitalists puppets.

If clubs were Politicians: 1. Kaizer Chiefs - Nelson Mandela: Old, well known and respected. 2. Moroka Swallows - Jacob Zuma: Full of promises but fails to deliver. 3. Mamelodi Sundowns - Thabo Mbeki: Respected in Africa but sluted by those who think thy r better. 4. Ajax Cape Town - Helen Zille: Plenty potential but out of touch with Mzansi. 5. Supersport United - Kgalema Motlanthe: Rose to the top an came tumbling down. 6. Platinum Stars - Mosiuoa Lekota: Great plans to fight the big guns but not strong enough to topple them. 7. Golden Arrows - Mamphela Ramphela: A pure joke. 8. Orlando Pirates - Julius Malema/Bantu Holomisa: Thought they were powerful an better than everyone until thy were brought down wit a thud. 9. Free State Stars - Mangosuthu Buthelezi: Just hanging in there. 10. Maritzburg United - Zanele Magwaza Msibi: U dn't knw who thy r until u meet them... Gud aftrnon Comrades!
heads of states including former pres of SA Thabo Mbeki is invited, they are yet to confirm attendance
I can listen to Former President Thabo Mbeki as well as Dr Pallo Jordan all day on any topic
The strategy is much similar to what Tambo did with the likes of Thabo Mbeki, Pallo Jordan, etc in preparation for post apartheid governing
I am inspired by Thomas Sankara, I have respect just like Walter Sisulu, I have a forgiving heart like Nelson Mandela, I love people just like Steve Biko, I do not belong to you alone but to the nation just like Kwame Nkrumah, i am a man of God just like Tiyo ka Soga, I love kids just like Albertina Sisulu, I love reggae music just like Bob Marley, I enjoy writing just likeFrantz Fanon, Chinua Achebe, I like poetry just like Ben Okri, I like reading just like Thabo Mbeki, and most importantly I am a Thinker, a Visionary and a Pan Africanist just like Robert Sobukwe. -Noble Son
Today im looking at my left thumb and find that im so privileged to have it. Today I’m just thinking of those that contributed to this mark , a symbol that says I have a right to be treated equally and fare . *** I can even complain about the government and not fear being killed. Democracy is a beautiful thing and I love it. So thank you to the men and women that died for this, for those that gave up their families to go fight for me to get a say (Steve Biko , Winnie Mandela ,Joe Slovo , Nelson Mandela , Thabo Mbeki,Chris Hani ,O R Tambo , Albert Luthuli ,Jacob Zuma “ja he *** but he did much too”, there is so many of you ). To the parties that where part of the struggle thank you . The ANC , PAC , AZAPO , SACP…to the MK’s there are more .And to those who brought awareness to in their own countries Obama among them . Thank you so much.

Many other eminent scholars and leaders such as Kwame Nkrumah, Cheikh Anta Diop, Marcus Garvey, Patrice Lumumba, Julius Nyerere, Sekou Touré, Kenneth Kaunda and Thabo Mbeki also called for the rebirth of Africa. Despite the recurrent echoes of such ideals by the aforementioned Africans, the lack of progress has been astounding. If it requires the youth to revolt against their authoritarian leaders, whether through peaceful or violent means, in order that change is effected, then so be it. Liberation from authoritarian rule will not be handed out on a silver platter, but needs to be taken. The future of the African Youth is dependent on our will to be the catalyst for change. That brighter day envisioned by our forefathers shall rise only when we, the African Youth, rise against the injustices visited upon us.

Also in 2007: The African National Congress chooses Jacob Zuma as its leader, ousting South African President Thabo Mbeki.
I did it for Anthony Lembede, Pixley Ka Isaka Seme, Thabo Mbeki and the only woman in my life my daughter.
3 controversial TMs: Thuli Madonsela, Thabo Mbeki, Trevor Manuel. I wonder if citizen Madonsela put her X on Zuma

Motorists clapped when Former President Thabo Mbeki abandoned his motorcade in the Joburg CBD and walked to his destination.What would U do if U saw JZ walking in town ? Would U clap for him or clap him? Viva nkandla
Can we please laugh a bit, it will help us relax, though we are voting. The last time Sundowns won the league Thabo Mbeki was still President, Rand was below R7 against the dollar, Julius Malema was president of ANCYL, Trevor Manuel was minister of finance. That has been a real 7years of barrenness. Celebrate, it's worth it.

He once said "The problem in this country is Thabo Mbeki and his people" He said " I will fight for President Zuma, I will kill for President Zuma and I will die fro President Zuma" He said " ANC will rule South Africa for ever " He said " I'm sorry South Africa for giving you a none-thinker a non-reader" He said " There are no brains in Nkandla" He said " my bold is green and gold and I will die in the ANC" He said " Supporting Jacob Zuma was a mistake of his life-time" He said “There is no organization called ANC in South Africa, it is a former organization. What we have now is ZANC, is Zuma ANC. ANC ended with president Mbeki." He said "President Mandela is sick and you don't want to contribute to a worsening condition of Mandela by not voting ANC. President Mandela will never endure if the ANC is out of power." He said " Sorry for replacing Mbeki with nothing" Namhlanje uthetha enye
Ystaday our Former President Thabo Mbeki couldn't tell which party he voted for, today Kgalema told the people that he voted for the ANC, it is not a secret. What seems to be a problem fellas?

It digruntles me why Former President Thabo Mbeki refused to reveal his vote today, I was hoping his vote would motivate mine.
Cde, Mbeki What is so Difficult here. Former President Thabo Mbeki on Tuesday urged all South Africans to vote in national and provincial elections. He said people have an obligation to the heroes and heroines who died fighting against apartheid. Mbeki cast his special vote in Killarney, north of Johannesburg, on Tuesday ahead of his trip to Nigeria this afternoon. He laughed off questions about which party his vote went to. But Mbeki did say with so many contenders, the choice was not an easy one. Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) official's set up a mobile voting station in Mbeki's driveway, helping him to go through all the formalities and allowing him to make his mark behind closed doors. Speaking to reporters afterwards, he didn't endorse any party, and said choosing one is a difficult and challenging task. “We do indeed have an obligation to the thousands of people who died to ensure we have this right to vote.” Mbeki also spoke about the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls, saying they must be ...

Boka Haram abducts 8 more girls aged between 12 and15yrs. Former President Thabo Mbeki cast his vote earlier today and immediately set off to Nigeria for negotiations. Why is the AU and ECOWAS silent? Apart from Pres. Zuma, haven't heard any other African leader condemning the group and their actions nor seeking a solution since the first batch of 276 was kidnapped. Are they waiting for UN and US to intervene? And when they do, we cry interference in our matters and cite colonialism.
South Africa: Searching for Solutions Vol. 4, No. 7 July 1, 2002 Nelson Mandela's election victory in 1994 allowed South Africa to emerge from decades of political and economic isolation. A "middle income" developing country, it is the richest nation on the continent, with a Gross Domestic Product almost half that of total Sub-Saharan Africa's GDP. Its economy exhibits a paradoxical dichotomy between a highly-developed formal sector and an informal sector characteristic of third world countries. Growth has been lukewarm in recent years, but other measures of performance have elicited praise from the World Bank and the IMF. Mandela's successor, Thabo Mbeki, has continued to promote investor-friendly policies. Considered alone, these policies would indeed present a convivial environment for foreign business. But the country is beset with intractable social problems that have deterred investors. While the market is inviting, caution should be exercised in market entry. Radicals to Pragmatists Despite the ant ...
Former President Thabo Mbeki just cast his special vote. Already anc members are claiming his ballot. Let's not be *** No body except Thabo Mbeki knows what he voted for. He might just be a FIGHTER in a versace suite :) Not everyone who has anc membership will vote for CORRUPTION.
In each generation there are men who's love for their people alters not only the course of history but shapes the future of their unborn descendants. Men such as: John Langalibalele Dube, Sefako Makgatho, Zacharias Mahabane, Josiah Gumede, Sol Plaatjie, Pixley Ka Isaka Seme, Alfred Bitini Xuma, Chief Albert Luthuli, Oliver Reginald Tambo, Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki. I will use my vote to pay homage to these great spirits! The African National Congress belongs to the people albeit temporarily hijacked. The battle for the soul of the ANC continues. love for Africa's oldest liberation movement is unwavering!
Former President Thabo Mbeki has cast a special vote in Johannesburg, as he will be out of the country on election day.
It is our Tax money that makes ANC to fly high and believe as if they are in heaven, Our hard earned cash is being stolen by this double head for his family. We are not disabled to clap hands for a welfare of the state, we are not stupid and blind like his followers, ANC died long time ago when it was led by the Honourable Former President Thabo Mbeki. We want a state that create opportunities for the youth do be their best, not limit our possibilities with grants( that's what stupid Zanc praising), we want living wages not labour brokers. Can we have a state that makes us all proud to Africans? Restore the dignity of a black child? I have made the right choice. Ngihamba no Malema my President ! AZANIA our Land, My Home !!!

Nna I don't want a "yes wife." I want my wife to be a global citizen. I want her to be clued up from politics, sport to entertainment. I want to have arguments in the house. I want her to have her own mind and idealogies. I want her to support Orlando Pirates when I support Kaizer Chiefs. I want her to say that Jacob Zuma is the best president we've ever had(with substantial reason) while I think Thabo Mbeki is the best. I want her to think Beyonce is the best while I think Rihanna is the best, lol. I just wanna argue with her, that's what will keep our relationship fresh and interesting. That could actually cause me to spend a lot of time with her instead of being out always arguing with my friends. I wanna be able to rush home from work just to show her proof I found, of something we were arguing about last night! Lol, oh well...
Julius Malema, Jacob Zuma n Thabo Mbeki are driving together and the car broke down. Mbeki went out to open the bonnet and said I think is the clutch plate. Zuma went out and said maybe is the pressure plate. Julius came out and said: if is not the pressure plate, or clutch plate then it must be the number plate.. :v:p -Shezi-
Reason why i won't for ANC 1.Nelson Mandela and Thabo Mbeki's cabinet consist of 28 ministers and their deputies 2*.Jacob Zuma cabinet consist of 64 ministers and 64 deputies 3*.Each minster and deputy has 8 bodyguards. 4*Each minister and deputy has two mansion in cape town n Pretoria 5*.in 2009 when Zuma government took over,auditor general reported a loss of R8 billion .in 2010 we lost R15Billion .in 2011 we lost R20billion .in 2013 we lost R31Billion America has about 400 million citizen & Obama cabinet consist of only 20 people,while South Africa has 51 million citizen &is the only country in the world that has the biggest cabinet in the world 128 ppl.oooh by the way our debbt rocketed to R1 trillion.reason i won't for this man n his party.EFF ASIJIKI

Good Morning Great People & Families…Be realistic on saying or doing things***Yeap, I believe in the simple teachings; Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Let us the ordinary citizen express ourselves***It's very easy for me to divide my views about our country future thus far into different chapters. Failing apart: Current ANC leaderships must stop hiding themselves behind the roles played by following true leaders who defeated apartheid … Nelson Mandela, Mama Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, Thabo Mbeki, Chris Hani, Elias Motsoaledi, Peter Mokaba, Steve Biko, Ahmed Kathrada, and Walter Sisulu and many more heroes who played their roles which we’ve reap the harvest (or fruits) of "democracy and freedom" which the ordinary SA citizens must enjoy not only the politicians, middle & upper classes.

Just heard an interview with "Ma Mbeki" at 98 years of age- speaking strongly and lucidly with more common sense and authority than any of our latter day ANC politicians. She says that the education system is failing the youth, that the electoral system must be changed to allow people to vote for a person and not a party who gives jobs to friends etc, over which the people at grassroots level (and in between) have no control over. She also says that the politicians( and all public servants) need to learn humility , and to serve the citizens and not be self-serving the way things are now. What an amazing woman. It's no wonder she is one of the last struggle icons left and was married to Govan Mbeki and had a son like Thabo Mbeki . At least there was vision and integrity there and to a certain extent, greater resolve. The ANC would do well to heed her words. It should be the reality check they need to come back down to earth from the heady heights of parliament which should be properly grounded in good gove ...

The gloves came off in the ANC this weekend as Former President Thabo Mbeki lashed President Jacob Zuma's leadership of the country, warning that South Africa was being allowed to "progress towards a costly disaster of a protracted and endemic general crisis Mbeki did not mention Zuma by name, but it was clear whom he had in mind when he expressed "great unease" at "a dangerous and unacceptable situation of directionless and unguided national drift". His remarks earned a sharp rebuke from ANC secretary-general Gwede Mantashe, who said South Africa had progressed since Zuma had taken office. He cited advances in the fight against Aids since Mbeki had left office. With Zuma seeking re-election to the post of ANC president at the party's national congress in Mangaung in December, Mbeki's highly critical remarks will strengthen the hand of those opposing him. Mbeki made the remarks in an OR Tambo memorial lecture he delivered as part of the ANC's centenary celebrations at the University of Fort Hare in Alice ...

We all know that the salary that guy got was NOT enough for him to live the khotha waya-waya life he was living. That *** didn't give a eff about the poor.

He promised renewed action to address the scourge of crime and corruption, to work towards job creation, rural upliftment, improved education and development to put the nation on a winning path to a better life for all.

Sudan, SPLM-N negotiators meet for 1st time in Addis Ababa The chief negotiators of the Sudanese government and the rebel Sudan People's Liberation Movement-North (SPLM-N) met Tuesday for the first time in Addis Ababa. Ibrahim Gandour and Yasser Arman met together to discuss the agenda of Wednesday's peace talks, according to Anadolu Agency reporter. Tuesday's meeting is the first face-to-face meeting between the chief negotiators in the absence of Thabo Mbeki, the former South African president currently leading mediation efforts. Addressing a press conference earlier Tuesday, Arman called for putting the issue of Sudanese refugees in South Sudan on the agenda of the peace talks with Khartoum. "In the course of the talks, we will present the issue of Sudan refugees in South Sudan for deliberations," Arman told a Tuesday press conference. While the government says it wants to discuss the situation in Blue Nile and South Kordofan states, both epicenters of the SPLM-N's ongoing insurgency, the rebel group w ...

Bolano said it before he died, so it's not too soon: "Today I read an interview with a famous and shrewd Latin American author. They ask him to name three people he admires. He replies: Nelson Mandela, Gabriel García Márquez, and Mario Vargas Llosa. With that answer as a starting point, you could write a whole thesis about the current state of Latin American literature. The casual reader might wonder what links those three figures. There is something that links two of them: the Nobel Prize. And there is something more that links all three: years ago they were all left wing... All three have made way for deplorable heirs: the clear and entertaining epigones of García Márquez and Vargas Llosa, and, in the case of Mandela, the indescribable Thabo Mbeki, the current president of South Africa, who denies the existence of AIDS. How could anyone name those three, without batting an eyelid, as the figures he most admires? Why not Bush, Putin and Castro? Why not Mullah Omar, Haider and Berlusconi? Why not Sán ...
Dear Ronnie, have you only just discovered the ANC is corrupt? By RW Johnson RW Johnson's open letter to the former minister on his Vote No campaign Dear Ronnie Thanks for the letter suggesting I might like to spoil my ballot. Ironically enough, it comes not long after a friend who is in COPE told me he wouldn't be voting at all this time, and not long after I had decided I could not vote DA this time. How could I possibly vote for a party which praises Thabo Mbeki whose Aids denialism cost the lives of over 360,000 African women and children? I can't vote for that in just the same way that I couldn't vote for a party which praised Hitler. But I am surprised by your attitude, for you sound so indignant about the corruption of the ANC regime. Yet how could you possibly have expected anything else, Ronnie? Let me go back to the early 1960s in Durban when we first met. We have been friends for over 50 years now. In those days we saw pretty much eye to eye and we both supported the ANC. Then you went undergro ...

READ AND MAKE YOUR OWN CONCLUSION:- Thabo Mbeki, former President of the RSA, was subject of public, media and DA scrutiny on security features installed by the state in his retirement house in Houghton. This caused the DAs Douglas Gibson leading an entourage of interested persons and visited the house in question. 2006 Noseweek Magazine reported that "the house’s special features "are like something out of a James Bond movie. Next door to Mbeki’s first floor office is the siege room, encased by steel shutters which drop down in the event of an attack. And, it is rumoured, in case things get too hot and evacuation is the only option, there’s to be a secret underground escape tunnel!" Some political parties in parliament reacted as ff.: 1.

Dear Mr. President Thabo Mbeki, I think you're the only Leader alive who understands the Game of Empire that is being played on African people. This Game is played at a Spiritual, Mental and Physical level. Many African Leaders are not aware of this. I think the only other Leaders who understood the magnitude of this Game is Dr John Henrik Clarke, Dr Amos Wilson, Malcolm X, to name a few. The rest of the African leaders cannot "grok" the immensity of this Game. I don't think it is their fault as most of them are either Christian or Muslim, and these foreign religions are anathema to an African's spirit. These are the very shackles that are suffocating our African spirits. One cannot think and understand the Game of Empire whilst using these frameworks to analyse and assimilate Africa's problems and those of the diaspora. The fact that half of Africa is Muslim and the other half is Christian leaves much to desire. My proposed solution is that we must rid Africa of these foreign religions that have us not " ...
I'm tired of the falsehoods directed at the Former President Thabo Mbeki, by some within the allience and pseudo-intellectuals, when they continue to insinuate that he denied that HIV causes AIDS. This malicious lie was made by western media after an African head of state dared to question conventional wisdom. The former president irked some scientists by questioning that "why is it that the disease is more devastating in Africa more than the western world, by this he was trying to draw them to the reality of abject poverty in the african continent. When asked if he believes if the virus causef aids he responded by saying "a virus alone cannot cause immune deficiency, there are other factors which must be looked at, things such as nutrition, which of course is the requirement of a stronger immune system.without proper nutrition, your immune system will surely weaken, and in an impoverished continent that is the reality!

Polokwane ANC ‘hurt comrades’ March 12 2012 at 11:14am By Frank Chikane Comment on this story DEPUTY President Kgalema Motlanthe, then-secretary-general of the ANC, first came to government in July 2008 as an unwilling minister without portfolio in the presidency. He was selected by the post-Polokwane leadership to take care of their interests because some deeply distrusted Thabo Mbeki. For them, Mbeki should have been removed as president immediately after Polokwane.  There was no clear indication of what these interests were. The reality is that Polokwane did not radically change the policies of the ANC relating to governance issues. The traditional ANC language of “change and continuity” was used at the Polokwane conference to indicate that the overall thrust of the policy was unaltered. The only changes related to aspects that would enable the government to better achieve the broad objective of the ANC, which was to better the lives of the people.

General Council of the Bar of South Africa's tribute to former President, Thabo Mbeki. A few highlights.
“Why whites people decided to oust Thabo Mbeki on his position as a president“. 1st because he refuse to sign the ARV’s deal because he wanted a clarity on how H.i.V virus is developed he asked for scientist to bring a report on how the virus stated and how are ARV’s will work on the human body(side effects and etc.) 2nd he address the issue of poverty as a main core of the deaths of H.I.V people, he said there is no point to give people pills while there is nothing to eat. They refuse to give him the group of scientist they suggested that he can do research on his own, because Thabo Mbeki was not lazy he did his research and find out books which talks about how America planned to depopulate black people on the face of the planet, the target was Africa and Brazil, after that report Mbeki presented the case to the court and they said those books were unofficial books so his argument was not valid, after that whites were unsettled about him exposed to such information, on the other hand Thabo Mbeki ...
I am very amused at the ANC going to court to ask the court to stop the DA peddling what it calls propaganda over Nkandla and its leader Jacob Zuma. Yet the ANC itself has for all these years been thriving almost exclusively on propaganda. Now, let's couple of yarns the ANC has spun us and got most of us to believe to be true. The ANC dismantled the inhumane apartheid laws and gave us our dignity back. The truth is that whole or the main Sections of the Pass Laws, the Separate Amenities Act, the Inter-Racial Act and the Group Areas Act were repealed before 1990 by the apartheid regime itself. This after negotiations with Nelson Mandela, who was at that stage no longer an ANC member, in prison, as well as the white business, white academics and professionals and Bantustan leaders. Ja, Mangope included. Ne o reng? What happened here is that the apartheid regime sent Afrikaaner businessmen and academics to ask the ANC in exile to start negotiations. The paranoid ANC, led by Thabo Mbeki, dilly dallied not bel ...
Politics, politicians, expensive mind games, show no remorse, greed and corruption till the grave. I am an objective "political analyst" and a none card carrying member of the ANC of Albert Luthuli, Oliver Tambo, Joe Slovo, Alfred B Nzo, Helen Joseph, Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki, Thabo Mbeki etc. The leaders of integrity and dignity. My views and opinions are not bias nor sexists or racists. South Africans our country is between the toilet pipes and the drain. Firstly, SANDRAL in Gauteng is just wasting the State funds, in the mission to recover e-toll funds they spend R154 000 000.00 to only recover R150 000 000.00 meaning they spend more to recover less. Already as it is the millions of motorist that are not registered they owe a half a billion to SANDRAL which they claim those who do not pay will be summoned to court and possibly be arrested. What is the logic of having thousands and thousands of motorists imprisoned if prisons are already jam packed as it is. The ANC and the parti ...

Yesterday and today we have been on door to door in Sarah Baartman Region. Our people love the ANC as I'm reminded by what Former President Thabo Mbeki said at the time in 1967, 21 July about passing away of the President General of the ANC Chief Mvumbi Albert John Luthuli: "like a bolt from the blue came the dreadful news that the very head of our movement, the first among equals, President Albert Luthuli, had been struck by a train at a lonely railway crossing not far from his home, and was no more.

An open letter to comrade Jacob Zuma, by Marion Sparg Dear Comrade JZ I write to you on Human Rights Day shortly before we celebrate the 20th anniversary of our democracy. I write to you not as the president either of the ANC or of South Africa, but as a comrade. I met you in exile a long time ago. I know you as someone who loves the ANC dearly and who has made an enormous contribution to the struggle for freedom in our country. I also know you as someone who loves nothing more than to work in our organisation at ground level. One of my dearest memories of you is an image I have of you in exile sitting in a house in Lusaka, Zambia, with a group of young comrades sitting around you on the floor while you entertained them with stories from KwaZulu-Natal. I have no doubt most of these stories were a combination of fact and fiction. That most of them included fact made them all the more powerful. And the fact that they contained fiction of course made them riveting. Each of them contained a powerful lesson. Y ...
" today it feels good to be an African" Thabo Mbeki.
Funny, just realised that Thabo Mbeki's thesis of two South Africas applies to Zambia too. Sorry, for Zambia, make it three Zambias. There is a Zambia where the ruling party and their follows dwell; then there is one where the opposition parties and their follows dwell; and, lastly there is a Zambia where those that continue weeping in silence dwell. I dwell in none, for I, man, am an anachronism.

So Thuli Madonsela makes a comparison between Cde Mandela's security upgrades worth R32 million in 1998 and Zuma's R246 million 15 years later. The learned Advocate is failing to tell the nation how much that One "big" Mandela house, the security features, fence, Police satellite station is worth today if we were to consider the increase in value for goods and services since then. She blatantly chooses to sensationalise that "not even Mandela's" security upgrades cost so much. What she's refusing to say is that the Mtata Airport was renovated specifically for Mandela's access to Qunu not the people of Mtata. She refuses to acknowledge that nearly a Billion Rand has been spent on that stretch todate. Why are "objective" South Africans refusing to ask these important questions? She's silent to the fact that in 2004, Douglas Gibson of the DA wanted to go and inspect what the DA at the time called the R54 million security upgrade for Cde Thabo Mbeki because the initial amount was R12 million and escalated to ...

"Impeachment is the correct course of action for this flagrant abuse of public money." Some parties and commentators joined the fray as well, calling for Zuma’s impeachment. Just the mere reference to the word has become adequate to incite many in the DA movement to be emotionally stirred. Just to recap, last week Madonsela’s report found that Zuma and his family had excessively gained from the improvements to his Nkandla private residence. Turning to the impeachment process, I can simply say that regrettably, talks of an impeachment against Zuma are a pointless waste of time. For Zuma to be impeached, a modest majority in the National Assembly must support and vote for this move. ANC members in the National Assembly will never vote against one of their own, especially when they are being urged to do so by the DA, which they view in bad light. Remember, the DA has been criticised many times by the ANC for being a party that is set to maintain white privileges in South Africa. I attended a couple of Hu ...

49 Robert Mugabe has shown Africa the way forward AFRICANGLOBE – There is no doubt that if Zimbabwe succeeds in pushing indigenisation to its logical conclusion, it will have a huge impact on how Africa in general does business with its natural resources in the future. Africa can even rewrite the principles of a world economy that has grown fat on cheap resources sourced from Africa and elsewhere in the developing world. This makes the former South African president, Thabo Mbeki’s recent admonition to Africa not to let Zimbabwe fail in the implementation of its indigenisation programme all the more important. Because of the critical place Zimbabwe’s example has for the future of Africa, it is crucial that we quote liberally here from a Mbeki speech given on August 23 2013. He said: “I think we should ask ourselves the question: Why is Zimbabwe such a major issue for some people? Zimbabwe is a small country by any standard; there is no particular reason why Zimbabwe should be a matter to which The ...

There was one brilliant economist and senior Cde, Dr Selebano Matlhape, who passed on sometimes back here at home. He served as the Special Adviser to two Free State Province Premiers. One day he summoned me and one of his peers and comrade, Dr Mochubela Seekoe to his place. He was very concerned and indicated that he wanted to raise a serious ethical issue with us. He walked us outside his modest house, on a small holding just outside Bloemfontein. He showed us a big second hand car parked outside and indicated that someone, whom we knew, had got a tender from government gave him that car. He said he had a problem that he was not asked to pay a cent for that car. Now he wanted to know what should he do with it. Both their eyes fell on me steadily demanding an answer from me. Now bro Tlhaps was staying where there was no transport infrastructure and he was also sickly. I realized the issue of the car was making him more sick.

Since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention first reported the HIV/AIDS epidemic in 1981, rumors have persisted that the deadly virus was created by the CIA to wipe out homosexuals and African Americans. Even today, the conspiracy theory has a number of high-profile believers. South African President Thabo Mbeki once touted the theory, disputing scientific claims that the virus originated in Africa and accusing the U.S. government of manufacturing the disease in military labs. When she won the Nobel Peace Prize, Kenyan ecologist Wangari Maathai used the international spotlight to support that theory as well. Others insist that the government deliberately injected *** men with the virus during 1978 hepatitis-B experiments in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Still others point to Richard Nixon, who combined the U.S. Army's biowarfare department with the National Cancer Institute in 1971.

The truth is that even if people disagreed with some economic policies that were adopted under his leadership, President Thabo Mbeki was a highly respected person. He was so respectable that even his worst detractors and biggest opposition could not escape from affording him dignity when differing with him. They fought with him on policy and ideological questions, because that was all they could differ with him about. When it came to issues of ethical conduct, integrity and discipline, president Mbeki could not be faulted. He was not a saint, certainly, but he was not the kind of person you read dodgy stories about in tabloids. Newspapers would not have a field day writing headlines about his moral conduct as if talking about some kwaito star. They could write all sorts of things, but at all times, those things were political. If he was in the papers, it was because of something political, not something related to conduct lacking in integrity, or to unethical behaviour and such. And this is one of the mos ...

Did u know: Pella, or Matlhako, formerly known as Tampostad, has given to SA one of the most illustrious sons, a political leader extra-ordinaire who prompted both Walter Sisulu and Nelson Mandela to declare that without Moses Mauwane Kotane, the ANC would not have grown in stature the way it did.Kotane is also credited with bringing ever closer the ANC and SACP as the same fellow travellers, persuading stalwarts such as Mandela to withdraw his suspicions of the communists. Kotane and the late Govan Mbeki, father to Former President Thabo Mbeki, were close comrades.
"I felt then it was a bad decision. I still think it's a bad decision... For as long as the president is there and has you in his cabinet it's his pleasure. When he is no longer there, his pleasure is terminated. Thabo Mbeki's pleasure to appoint the cabinet was terminated... When he [Mbeki] was recalled, I went to the then incoming president, Kgalema Motlanthe, [and] I went to Jacob Zuma and said I am resigning. They said 'no you mustn't'. I said no, I'm resigning, in fact, you would be better off inviting all cabinet members to resign. You are not going to have factionalism. Everybody resigns and Mkhuluwa [Motlanthe], you will be able to appoint a cabinet of your choice. You don't then fetter the pleasure of the president." Trevor Manuel
South African people are making Thabo Mbeki one of the greatest leaders we ever had and Jacob Zuma the worst president. Every coin has got two sides Thabo Mbeki is the one that was reluctant to buy medicine for HIV peolple ,with his minister the late Manto Msimang adviced people tp take garlic .This is the same guy that was deployed buy SADC to mediate in Zimbabwe but even today president Mugabe and Tsangarai are still at loggerheads this is the same Thabo Mbeki that abondoned his duties in South Africa to go around Africa and make noise about AFRICAN RENASSAINCE but he cant even speak five sentences with venecular laguage and this guy disrespected our traditional leaders by setting the Ntlapo commission to strip some of the leaders their rights to rule. This guy went abroad when the civil servants were in strike in 2007 leaving behind that strike , this is the same person that booted JZ from his duties as a deputy president before he was found guilty. Dont get me wrong i have nothing against him but i .. ...
