Increasingly, we are seeing our information providers giving us information that will not ever have been printed in earlier years. The jail system to which they have been subject goes again to the late 1960s. It was the successor and the complement to the jail system on which blacks in South Africa are weaned with their moms’ milk. In 1969 one of the editors of this journal met two South Africans in London who stated that they had fought in the first MK guerrilla operation in mid-1967 – a disastrous fiasco across the Zambezi River into the Wankie space of Rhodesia, along with guerrillas from the Zimbabwe African Folks’s Union (ZAPU), then led by James Chikerema. (The ZAPU president, Joshua Nkomo, was in detention). The 2 men described how they had ultimately succeeded in escaping from Rhodesia, and how their criticism of the operation had led to their imprisonment in an ANC camp in Tanzania. An article on the theme appeared the same yr within the British radical newspaper Black Dwarfthen edited by Tariq Ali.
Since posting right here on FB, I’ve endeavored to cast our battle, particularly now of late, and framed the African folks’s debacle in phrases and actions towards that of those that have undergone similar fates in other international locations. The distinction between politicians, revolution, and theory and apply are the very essence of concept; revolutionary concept and follow are revolution fodder for revolutionaries, not politicians. The organization of concepts, structures, actions and information-is what is actually wanted to be put to the fore, implemented and disseminated, should be made coherent, clear and have path. This has nothing to do with trusting anyone or any individuals, because individuals do not own the peoples struggles nor revolutions. Revolution and its path and path will be dictated and shaped by the individuals, not some opportunistic practitioners who don’t supply sound and cheap plans, if not operational ideas and programs that benefit the debased masses.
Although the ANC will not be welcomed by the ANC, the opposition is too weak to profit from it. The ANC is slowly destroying itself by it is ignoring of its electoral base, and this does not bode effectively for the ANC-led authorities. The present ANC-led authorities is in cahoots with massive monied interests, business and nations who want or are controlling the natural resources of Africans in south, and are destroying the African tradition and the indigenous African peoples of South Africa.
This was an appropriate bureaucratic designation for this realization of the relentless bureaucratic idea that Whites and Africans should live aside. Formally, the Nationalist Authorities considered Soweto a quickly unavoidable social aberration in what has now been declared a “White space”. Finally – or so the Theory of apartheid postulated, at its most preposterous, holds â€” your complete city African inhabitants will soften into the “Tribal Reserves” or “Bantustans” or “Native Reserves” or “Tribal Homelands”(which they tried in the later years of their rule and known as them Bantustans or Homelands-and they failed dismally).
The voice of the poor is uncooked and actual. In their considerations is an immediacy that’s lived and right here-an-now. The ANC and its handlers could connie, scheme and work as exhausting as they can, but the core of the poor is within the background, which they, The ANC and its overseas handlers, see and discover a have to repress, oppress, depress, suppress and stamp-out this type of resistance and pondering. It is not good for enterprise. The very ANC that was once labelled as a Terrorist organizations-at the moment it uses approximate accusations against its poor people-“Umdlwembe”.
