    A STREET vendor from Mozambique, Emmanuel Sithole, lay begging for his life in a gutter as four men beat him and stabbed him in the heart with a long knife. Images of his murder have shaken South Africa, already reeling from a wave of attacks on foreigners, mostly poor migrants from the rest of Africa. Soldiers were deployed on April 21st to Alexandra, a Johannesburg township, and other flashpoints to quell the violence, though only after seven people had been killed. Thousands of fearful foreigners, many from Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe, have sought refuge in makeshift camps. Others have returned...

    South Africa's president Jacob Zuma has told how he used to practise witchcraft against white people. Speaking in his native Zulu language at a pre-election rally in the country's rural north, he told a crowd of his voodoo past. 'I used to practise witchcraft around here, bewitching the Boers during apartheid', Zuma reportedly said.

    This week, January 22-23 marks the 134th anniversary of the Battle of Rorke's Drift in Natal Province, South Africa. Everyone knows the story of the small company of Welsh troops from the 24th Regiment of Foot who held off a force of up to 4,000 Zulu warriors who outnumbered them twenty to one. I plan to celebrate the occasion tomorrow by viewing the classic movie of the siege starring Stanley Baker and Michael Caine, made fifty years ago. It looks like there won't be anything else worth watching on TV that day anyway.

    Jacob Zuma, the South African president, has issued a ringing endorsement of traditional courts, saying that problems should be resolved “the African way, not the white man’s way”. Mr Zuma, a proud Zulu who himself subscribes to traditional practices such as polygamy, said that those living in rural communities in South Africa found the traditional justice system a better way of resolving their disputes. “Prisons are done by people who cannot resolve problems,” he was quoted as saying by South Africa’s Times newspaper. “Let us solve African problems the African way, not the white man’s way. Let us not be...

    On Sunday night, chairman of the New Black Panther Party, Malik Zulu Shabazz, appeared on WABC's "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio," and claimed that his organization is now thinking about "legally and lawfully go to the polls again to make sure there is no intimidation against our people, which was our intent in 2008." Later in the interview, Shabazz declared: "We will be there." Listen to the full interview at left...

    His latest offspring, a girl, was reported on Sunday to have been born in October to Sonono Khoza, 39, the divorced daughter of Irvin Khoza, according to the country's Sunday Times newspaper. Mr Khoza is the chairman of the organising committee for the football World Cup finals to be held in South Africa later this year. The newspaper said the girl's name was registered as Thandekile Matina Zuma. Mr Zuma, 67, is a proud Zulu traditionalist, and as well as his polygamy – he married his third current wife and fifth overall, Thobeka Madiba, earlier this month – he has...

    Jacob Zuma's 'Love Child' Sparks Political Row By Jonah Fisher BBC News, Johannesburg South Africa's main opposition party has accused the country's president of contradicting the government's message on HIV/Aids prevention. The Democratic Alliance issued a statement after claims that Jacob Zuma had fathered a child out of wedlock last year. There has been no comment from the woman, Sonono Khoza, Mr Zuma, or his party, the ANC. Mr Zuma married for the fifth time earlier this year. Although he is thought to have at least 20 children, Mr Zuma has always refused to say exactly how many offspring he...

    A South African man wanted to marry four women, but didn’t want to pay for four weddings, so he combined all the ceremonies into one. Milton Mbhele, 44, went against traditional polygamous wedding rules by marrying his four brides at the same time last month, according to the Kenyan Daily Nation . The four brides, Happiness Mdlolo (24), Thobile Vilakazi (34), Smangele Cele (23) and Zanele Langa (24) walked down the aisle together before saying “We do” to the happy groom. Mbhele said he loves all the women equally and that he didn’t marry them purely for the spectacle but...

    The members of the ruling class of the British Isles seem to be committed to demonstrating that they are nothing but hopeless neo-socialists busy sacrificing their green and pleasant land on the altar of nanny-state multiculturalism. It seems that every day there is a report of some new Labor assault on free speech, a fresh disaster in the decaying single-payer health care system, or another craven surrender to domestic jihadism. The latest atrocity is Scotland’s politicians’ ”compassionate release” of Lockerbie mass-murderer Abdulbaset al-Megrahi, a shameful maneuver that managed to combine greed, cowardice and self-righteousness all into one gutless package.

    There’s little question who will lead South Africa after Wednesday’s national election. The real mystery lies in who will be the country’s first lady. As Jacob Zuma, the man preordained to be the country’s next president, voted in his rural Zulu homeland Wednesday, one of his two current wives stood to the side watching patiently as he was mobbed by cheering crowds and reporters. But Nompumelelo Ntuli, 34, Zuma’s newest and youngest wife, was soon attracting her own crowd of admirers. Women whispered, “Isn’t she beautiful!” as Ntuli decked out in an apricot and blue tie-dye outfit beamed happily. “Jesus...

    Zuma’s blueprint for governance accords fairly closely with the descriptions of early anthropologists: like any African king, he will rely on the counsel of wise advisers. This worries Mosiuoa Lekota, the former ANC hero and now a leader of the breakaway Congress of the People. He points out that the Communist party and its allied trade unions played a critical role in the overthrow of Mbeki and believes the left now controls the ANC. “Even Zuma has said as much,” Lekota noted. “He told the ANC national executive, ‘I owe nobody anything here. The only people I will consult beyond...

    Its the 170th anniversary of a pioneer story hardly anyone ever hears anymore. One of those stories about courageous men with nothing more than a bag of seeds, a hoe, hammer and musket, a pregnant wife and a horse come to stay. They fought off wild animals, hostile natives, outlaw bandits and other hardships to make the once desolate landscape a land of flowing milk and honey. The story you are about to read is one that hardly any American ever hears. Primarily because this story is not set in the wild untamed west of North America but in the...

    [On 21-22 January 1879, immediately after the disaster of Isandlwana, Zululand, where Britain's initial invading force was wiped out by the Zulus, aproximately 150 British soldiers, wounded and volunteers defended a supply depot and hospital against 4000 Zulu warriors at a place called Rorke's Drift.] [snip] .... From a position on top of the store's roof, Private Fred Hitch shouted he could see some four to six thousand Zulus advancing towards the post. One wit, Private Augustus Morris, retorted from below, "Is that all?" Chard withdrew the infantry picquets and the Zulus came in sight. Ranged against Chard's command of...

    British soldiers fighting the Zulus experienced appalling conditions similar to the muddy killing fields of World War I, it has emerged. Archaeologists have revealed details of soldiers' battle for survival during a bloody siege in the Anglo-Zulu War. The colonial war in 1879 was dramatised by Michael Caine in the film Zulu. Historians lacked detailed evidence of the troops' daily lives, but a team of experts from Glasgow have now uncovered a forgotten British fort. The site at KwaMondi, Eshowe, in South Africa, has been hailed as a treasure trove of historical information which sheds light on the heroism and...

    Many argue that communism will never be possible because of "human nature". The essence of this false argument is the belief that a communist society would consist of an all-powerful central government that would tell everybody what to do--and would therefore undermine the creative initiative of individuals and the search for happiness. • This argument is based on two false assumptions: (1) It assumes that a communist society will look like the former Soviet Union, or the current China, North Korea, etc (ie: corrupt police states with a feudal-style ruling class) (2) It assumes that people will only work in...
