All signs are pointing to a looming human rights crisis of white genocide in South Africa:
(1) Land Confiscation
In February 2018, South Africa’s new president Cyril Ramaphosa made land expropriation a key pillar of his policy platform after taking over from ousted PM Jacob Zuma.
This was followed by the South African parliament’s passage, by an overwhelming majority of 241 to 83 votes, of a motion to begin the process of amending the country’s Constitution to allow for the confiscation of white-owned land without compensation.
(2) Call for White Genocide
In June 2018, Julius Malema made a barely-concealed threat of white genocide in an interview with TRT World News.
He said, “We have not called for the killing of white people. At least for now. I can’t guarantee the future.” When the reporter mentioned that some people might view his remarks as a call to genocide, Malema responded, “Crybabies. Crybabies,” then warned white South Africans that “the masses are on board” for “an un-led revolution and anarchy.”

(3) Gun Confiscation
On June 7, 2018, South Africa’s Constitutional Court unanimously ruled that sections 24 and 28 of the Firearms Control Act (2000) are constitutional. Sections 24 and 28 require firearm owners to renew their licenses every five years; failure to do so meant an owner is in the illegal possession of a firearm, which is punishable by 15 years in prison.

A year ago, on July 4, 2017, the North Gauteng High Court had declared sections 24 and 28 of the Firearms Control Act unconstitutional. Before the Firearms Control Act of 2000‚ a license to possess a firearm lasted for life. (Times Live)
Section 24 of the Act requires that any person who seeks to renew a license must do so 90 days before its expiry date. Section 28 stipulates that if a firearm license has been cancelled‚ the firearm must be disposed of or forfeited to the state. A 60-day time frame is placed on its disposal, which is to be done through a dealer.
The Constitutional Court’s ruling means that South African gun owners who fail to renew their firearms licenses must hand in their firearms to the nearest police station, where authorities will then presumably destroy them.
José Niño of Gunpowder Magazine rightly observes:
The history of gun confiscation is one of repeated cases of tyranny.
From countries such as Cuba to the Soviet Union, aspiring demagogues have used gun confiscation to disarm the populace. Logically, an unarmed populace will put up little resistance against their tyrannical acts.
(4) New Mining Charter
The economy of South Africa is the second largest (after Nigeria) and one of the most industrialized in Africa, due in large part to mining. Though mining’s contribution to the national GDP has fallen from 21% in 1970 to 6% in post-apartheid 2011, it still represents almost 60% of the country’s exports.
But the South African government is radically revising its Mining Charter, which will be published this November. (Reuters)
The new Mining Charter will require racial quotas in the form of minimum percentages of Black ownership of shares, Black supply of mining goods, and Black employees.
- A new mining right must have a minimum of 30% Black Persons’ shareholding, with the 30% shareholding to be apportioned between employees, communities and entrepreneurs in a specific manner.
- A minimum 8% shareholding is allocated to mine communities, to be held through a trust.
- A minimum 14% shareholding must be to black entrepreneurs.
- Holder of a mining rights must pay 1% of its annual turnover to the 30% black persons’ shareholding prior to, and over and above any distributions made by a Holder to its shareholders. This 1% payment is always subject to the solvency and liquidity test as provided for in the Companies Act but is not negotiable under any other terms.
- The Charter requires 70% procurement of mining goods and 80% procurement of services from BEE entities (Black empowered entities); it also requires that analysis of 100% of mineral samples be done by South African based companies. This is mandatory and in place no matter how incompetent or expensive these protected companies services may be.
- At board level, a minimum of 50% black representation, 25% of which must be both female and black.
- At executive/top management level, a minimum of 50% black representation, 25% of which must be both female and black
- At senior management level, a minimum of 60% black representation, 30% of which must be both female and black
- At middle management level, a minimum of 75% black representation, 38% of which must be both female and black
- At junior management level, a minimum of 88% black representation, 44% of which must be both female and black
Human Resource Development
- A holder must invest 5% of the leviable amount on essential skills development.
This mining charter will eventually lead to South Africa becoming a mining backwater, a shadow of its former glory.
Even the average village idiot could tell you that the South African mining industry is going to follow a slow and painful decline with the “irony” that the very people that the mining charter is purportedly going to “empower” will be those worst affected, along with all the businesses surrounding this industry and, in turn, those businesses surrounding the mining service businesses. In short, the whole of South Africa.
