In South Africa in recent years, especially since the black violence in Coligny, which resulted in the burning down of a number of houses, I went to Coligny, Lichtenburg and Mafikeng. I was there just after the Mafikeng violence and I took many photos including and entire petrol station that the blacks had torn to bits and even blown an ATM to shreds.
I came across testimony and even film footage which shows that Malema’s EFF was active there.
In Coligny itself, I saw and photographed an EFF propaganda truck which used to drive up and down the road with a loud hailer on top, blaring out propaganda during the day.
I even waited for the EFF one day when they were supposed to be in court in support of a farm murderer. But on that day, they did not pitch up. I sat in court for a while.
Of all the provinces in South Africa, it seems as if the EFF has been the most successful in the North West province, and this is also where the white right has been growing, due to the malicious things going on there.
Recently, there was a "peace march" in Coligny, organised by the whites. The whites are actually trying to use psychological and spiritual methods to try and calm the blacks down in the town.
I saw the houses that had been burned down and photographed them and walked inside them. If it wasn’t that the white men gathered all the whites into their own suburb and blocked it off and guarded it with weapons during the day, there would have been big problems. The blacks saw the whites with their firearms and then left them alone.
It seems to me as if the Police are complicit in many of these violent events. The Police deliberately take no action until the whites threaten to take the law into their own hands.
I still think that Malema was Mugabe’s best student and that the ANC also quietly gives him a wink and a nod. He has committed true hate crimes and yet never really gets into trouble.
