I have written a length about this motley crew of cabals that dominate the ANC, and the ‘Corruption Debate’?! above, is more like watching the ANC spokesman’s mealy mouthing his way out of the shenanigans of the ANC, lying, obfuscating, distorting and seamlessly trying to present the ANC as a viable Government Other Tape on Apartheid, is covering Apartheid from the 1950s just to get a flavor of what do we means by Apartheid. “Regardless of our understanding of the diverse ways in which European system of education typically failed African people, Africans continue to be dependent on the European approach; an approach that carries no high expectations of us. In fact, the european system is based largely on assumptions that we lack the intellectual and cultural capacity for high levels of achievement. … Read the rest

The choice before Africa’s elite today, though superficially different, is fundamentally the same: Serve as agents of imperialist exploitation of Africa or be overthrown by others more willing to do so. An unmerry-go-round of coups and counter-coups, of massacres and counter-massacres, spreads fear, distrust and confusion across the continent, and distracts us from constructing that stable power we must have to beat off future invasions (in the case of South Africa, this needs to be put in better perspective, i.e., what type of invasion are South Africans faced with, and the answer is, “world, foreign and invasions from Africa and the Imperialist countries- my addition). )1955 Topper Brown, a British coach, leads Natal Africans to victory in both the Moroka-Baloyi Cup and the Natal Inter-Race Singh … Read the rest

Between the 1880s and 1910s, African, Indian, and Coloured football associations and leagues developed in Kimberley, Durban, Johannesburg, and Cape Town, as well as in the elite mission schools.

The role of the military in Brazilian life declined significantly following the military dictatorship that lasted from 1964 to 1985. By 2000 the three forces of the military, the army, navy, and air force, had been subsumed under a new civilian defense ministry and were forced to give up their separate cabinet-level posts.
