Truth and Lies about South African History: Blacks Are Not “Indigenous” and Arrived at Same Time as Whites

The recent uproar in South Africa over the claims by ANC president Jacob Zuma that the 1913 Land Act dispossessed blacks is a blatant lie, and forms part of four core lies about South African history, a New Observer correspondent Yochanan has written.

Submitted in the comment section of this newspaper, Yochanan’s remarks are so pertinent that they deserve greater publicity:

LIE NUMBER ONE: There is a common belief in South Africa that the Natives Land Act of 1913 shoved blacks on reserves (‘7 percent of the land’) and ‘prohibited them from buying land in white areas’. That ‘whites forcibly removed blacks to these reserves and that these reserves were on the worst land in the country with no mineral riches and that whites kept all the best land and minerals for themselves’.

Now if I was a black man, I would probably also want to believe that myth, because it would ensure me eternal victimhood status and compensation for generations to come.

Unfortunately, it is a blatant lie and can be attributed to the lack of reading ability or legal comprehension of the journalists and historians of our time.


Black tribal areas, secured, not defined, by the 1913 Land Act.

THE TRUTH: First of all the biggest Platinum reserves in the world run through the former Black homeland of Bophuthatswana (North West province).

The former Nationalist government had no problem allocating this area to the Tswana tribes for self-rule—although they already had a massive country called Botswana given to them by the British. It was originally part of South Africa, called Bechuanaland.

Blacks further got another two massive countries from the British called Lesotho and Swaziland. There goes their 7 percent.

LIE NUMBER TWO: ‘Black homelands were on the worst land in South Africa’.

THE TRUTH: When one compares the rainfall map of South Africa and anybody with elementary knowledge of South Africa will tell you that the largest part of South Africa is called the Karoo. It is a semi desert comparable to Arizona or Nevada in the USA.


Blacks never even entered this area let alone settled it. Whites made it blossom and created successful sheep farms producing meat of world quality.

Black “settlements” are found on the north and east coast of South Africa. The East Coast has a sub-tropical climate and the north a prairie-like climate with summer rainfall and thunderstorms. An exception to this is the Western Cape with a Mediterranean climate and winter rainfall.

The northern and eastern part of South Africa with its beautiful green grasslands and fertile soil is where the blacks eventually coalesced and this is the land they chose for themselves. Their eventual homelands were found on the land they inhabited out of their own free will.

The Afrikaners even have a song praising the greenness of Natal, called “Groen is die land van Natal” (Green is the land of Natal). It was perfect grazing area for the cattle herding blacks.

LIE NUMBER THREE: ‘Blacks are indigenous to South Africa and first settled it’.

THE TRUTH: Today Blacks in South Africa often tell Afrikaners and other minorities such as the Coloureds, Indians, Chinese or Jews to adapt to their misrule and corruption or “Go Home”…implying that we, who have been born here, who hold legal citizenship through successive birthrights; should emigrate to Europe, Malaysia, India or Israel. That the only ones who have a legal claim to South Africa, all of it, are the blacks. Blacks believe that they are ‘indigenous to South Africa’—but they are not: it was proven by DNA research. We are ALL settlers in South Africa.

All South Africans are settlers, regardless of their skin colour, and their DNA carries the proof. So says Dr Wilmot James, head of the African Genome Project, a distinguished academic, sociologist and, more recently, honorary professor of human genetics at the University of Cape Town.


Where is the archaeological proof that blacks ‘settled’ South Africa?

Apart from a few scattered archaeological remains found of black culture in the far northern Transvaal prior to 1652, it is generally agreed that blacks and whites were contemporary settlers of South Africa.

I use the term “Settler” loosely, because blacks never ‘settled’ South Africa; their presence was nomadic. Blacks were itinerants who travelled from place to place with no fixed home.

Whole capital “cities” of grass huts could be moved if grazing was exhausted. They had no demarcated areas, no fences, no borders, no maps, no title deeds to proof ownership of any land apart from a verbal claim and mutual understanding that their temporary presence in a certain area in a certain period of time constituted “ownership” of the land.

They left behind no foundations of buildings, no statues, no roads, no rock paintings, not a single proof of “settlement” of the land prior to the whites settling South Africa.

The only rock paintings were made by the Bushmen and the Hottentots (Khoi-Khoi and San) in the caves they temporarily occupied. Blacks were pastoral-nomads and the Bushmen/Hottentots were hunter-gatherer-nomads.

Whites, on the other hand, built cities, railroads, dams and a first world country comparable to the best in Europe and the new world…their legacy speaks of a people who intended to live there for a thousand years, if not eternity.

To claim that ‘the whole of Africa belongs to Blacks’ is absurd. It is like an Italian claiming the whole of Europe belongs to Italians, including Norway.

In fact, the pyramids of Egypt are proof of white settlement going back thousands of years—and also the Phoenicians settling Carthage and the Greeks settling Alexandria.

The Arabs settled North Africa soon after the Prophet Mohammed died and the whites settled Southern Africa from 1652 onwards. Today there are three Africas as Dr. Eschel Rhoodie calls it in his book “The Third Africa” (1968)… Arabic up north, Black in the centre and Whites at the south…

The white settlers of the Cape first came face to face with the Bantu around 1770 on the banks of the Great Fish River, 120 years after Van Riebeeck came to the Cape and 1000 km east of Cape Town.

LIE NUMBER FOUR: Whites created black reserves and homelands.

THE TRUTH: Blacks created the homelands themselves, thanks to Shaka Zulu. The common belief is that the ‘black tribes at the time were all living peacefully and in the spirit of ‘Ubuntu’ with each other in a virtual liberal paradise’.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Shaka-Zulu was a genocidal maniac who wiped out some two million black people in the Defeqane ( “great scattering”).


Above: The Difeqane, or “great scattering” of blacks occurred centuries after Europeans arrived in South Africa.

The Zulu tyrant Shaka, at the time was committing genocide against other tribes. The Swazis and the Ndebeles fled back north in the direction of central Africa where they migrated from.

The Sothos fled into the mountains of what is today, Lesotho. The rest of the smaller tribes huddled together trying to find strength in coalescing.

That is the history of black South Africans that blacks prefer to ignore… that blacks drove other blacks off their land, not whites.

It is into this maelstrom of black chaos that the Boers trekked in 1838. As far as they went they found large open sections of country uninhabited by anyone.

Black tribes fleeing Shaka’s carnage grouped themselves into areas finding protection in concentrated numbers.

This is how Sir Theophilus Shepstone later found the remnants of black refugees huddled together on self-created reserves. He just demarcated it in order to protect them from each other.

The creators of the Bantustans were not the Boers or the whites, it was a black man called Shaka.

  1. U have to remember modern history of south africa was and is written to appease a liberal white western mentality .
    Even mandela’s book “Long walk to freedom ” is written to favour this belief . He wrote that the white mine owners put the different tribes in different hostels to stop them merging and over trowing the white minority . That is a total myth the reason for different hostels was to stop them killing each other . Even today johannesburg refuse collection company (pick-it-up ) wil not put a vechile of mixed tribal workers out on a route .

  2. An interesting read as campus revolutionaries and liberal intellectuals play finders keepers in deciding that the land is sacred to who lived there first. I, however, still think that Japan belongs to the Ainu.

    1. I agree Zakes. Now since we are all foreigners in South Africa (based on the distorted history) let’s strive to live in peace and stop claiming ownership of a land that none of us ever ‘owned’.

  3. Whatever facts or fiction taken from history progresses nothing unless something is done to make it happen. Africa never had the ability to progress and move on and by the current trends never will. The only politics it understands is do nothing and blame something. I’ve worked in enough African countries to know.

    So be it, it’s suffering will continue with or without the rest of the world.

    1. Have always been amazed by the african american saying they know more about africa than a European who has lived or worked there .
      Unfortunately most of african countries have been reduced to beggar states . The main reason for this is the tribal mentality .

  4. Dit is waar, my oupa grootjie Johannes Nikolaas Brits was die eienaar van Bloemfontein (hy het dit blomfontein gedoop) en het dit in 1837 aan ‘n engelsman verkoop. swartes wat die naaste was is Botswana en Basoetoland wat Lesotho is vandag.

    (Translation from Afrikaans: “This is true. My great grandfather, Johannes Nicolaas Brits was the owner of Bloemfontein (he named it Blomfontein) and he sold it to an Englishman in 1837. The nearest blacks [at the time] were in Botswana and Basutoland, which is today Lesotho.”)

    1. Johlene,there is no way that zuma will understand this, he will say it is a report written by a white man to show our superiority!!!!

  5. I completely support this article; in fact as a 6th generation “settler”, I can attest to the fact that my fore-fathers were sent out to South Africa to stop (?) the warring tribes from killing each other! He was then offered land to stay in SA in the Eastern Cape, as many were. Later on, another was tasked to set up Trading Stations every 5 miles apart, as a means to keep peace between the factions / tribes. You were given the choice of returning to your home country after the war, or settling here. The headman in each area were a big part of agreeing to this settlement. We never stole anything.

  6. A black man will never admit to this irrespective how much concrete evidence there is to prove this article is correct and accurate.

  7. Very interesting information – I had no idea and genuine thought that the problems in South African originated from the white man ‘invading’ black people’s country.
    Thank you for educating me.

  8. This pretty much accords with my take on our history. But at the time, I have seen some archival evidence and admit being most impressed with many black leaders, Moshesh in particular comes to mind, who dealt fairly with many white trekkers and showed an ability to negotiate far beyond what I had imagined. He, or his secretary, had a excellent command of the English language. Maybe its time to be pragmatic and seek to openly weed out misconceptions we all hold dear.

  9. About 12 years ago when I came to Canada there was a Black Female Economist on TV saying ” NO MORE AID TO AFRICA OVER THE LAST 60 YEARS MORE THAN A TRILLION DOLLARS WERE GIVEN TO AFRICA AND THEY ARE WORSE OFF THAN BEFORE”


    1. All meaningless, the white man will always be responsible for all evil, I mean we started by wiping out the dinosaur, the majority of blacks and radical muslims will be the end of the white man we are just to thick to see it, kiss ass human rights and liberal ag shame attitudes. Africa is a wreck because think about who the majority are! Zuma is to not blame, it is the “people” who vote for him.

    2. Being one of the richest countries in Africa, if not the richest, it is a disgrace that South Africa needs to get money from other countries. We have all the necessary resources to look after ourselves – or rather, we should have the ability to look after ourselves.

  10. The Indian people that were brought here by the British had the same restrictions placed upon them as the blacks by the British and upon arrival, although they consisted of the lowest class, they immediately set out to improve themselves. Today and during the so called apartheid era they thrived. The indian schools were of the highest standards and we can see that still in the results they achieve. Today we have people in our government and elsewhere that have become instant millionaires in record time. Makes a person think.

    1. The Indians were worst off as they were not allowed to settle in the Orange Free State.. they had to obtain permits if they wanted to travel through the Free State. Instead of burning their schools, they studied and most of them are successful business people today.

  11. We got taught about Shaka Zulu and his wars against the other tribes in primary school history. This was before 1994 when school actually still taught you usefull things. So how anyone over 30 can say they didnt know this is beyond me.

    1. Whites were in Natal at that time and reported that a chief for instance hid his family in a cave when he went in search of food. On his return he found that they were eaten by others.

      1. The first time I read about this was in a book by Laurens van der Post (the lost world of the Kalahari) and I was totally stunned as we never learned about this in school. I did some more research and as it turns out there was indeed cannibalism mainly due to the tribal warfare robbing and killings. This practice was widespread and what I found interesting was that van der Post wrote that Bushmen never participated in this “habit” and would rather die than eat another person.

  12. Thank you very much for writing this article. It is long overdue information the people out there need to know about. Not that it will help to educate the black masses, (the one’s we have sponsored and tried to give an education). They have been fed and told this lie since they could understand their parents. Especially trying to educate our nit-wit zuma is going to be a problem since he only has a grade 5 certificate. In fact, it will only make him more determined to hasten the land grabbing in South Africa. Nonetheless, great article. Much appreciated.

    1. In about 1990 we had a seminar at our regiment and one of our officers, major Arhibald gave us a talk about the British who landed a man with a helper or two at Durban with their horses to find an overland route to the Cape. They found no people until they reached the xhosa in the eastern Cape. They expected to meet people from whom they could get food as their supplies ran out and they were famished. I can’t remember who the man was but I took a dig at my colleages and commented what a poor shot he must have been because my regiment is predominantly English. As I remember that persons diary still exists.

  13. This article is not only relevant but also well supports its argument with facts- However, let us not discard the role that the regime played in forming many of the inequalities we are faced with today.

    it may not be the root cause but it certainly played a hand in exacerbating the situation. What is sad is that the history that is taught in school today is more focused on the history of the west than that of our own country.
    The history text books that our children learn from are almost 80% based on western history. i know this first hand having finished school only 4 years ago. We need to change our curriculum first, before we can hope to change centuries of misconceptions. Zuma does not have much formal education and i am certain that the basis of his comment was based on ANC indoctrination- We cannot hold the man at fault. The Party as a whole is responsible for the rubbish he spoke.

    1. My dear friend

      I applaud you foy attempting up dispel the myths which prevail ink our society today.

      However, your writings are based mostly on conjecture and vague facts.

      I speak to you from a platform of experience, having been in south africa during its worst and best times.

      You seem to lean towards a British slant of the facts and dispute facts by historians world wide. If so, you will know that that the British were not very nice people. A conquering army never is. If you were not british and any other personality like polish, italian, portuguese etc you were a second class citizen. The system was already gearing itself for segregation. Even foreign whites, walking on a pavement, had to give way to british passersby and get off the pavement into the mud (remember this was before tar).

      Continue on your efforts, it is commendable, but remove emotions and interpret the facts as they are written into a credible and believable opinion.

      You say you finished school four years ago so you must be aware that to repudiate written facts you need, likewise, literature to support your opinion. Hearsay and comments won’t interest people for long.

      My advice for you to build a credible blog where people will want to read your comments must be based on reference to current literature.

      I wish you well in your endeavour.

    2. No Ntombi I hope you go and read the real history of apartheid and how much money was spent to uplift blacks in their own areas.

  14. Very good article. More to this though, the oldest human remains found on the shorelines in South Africa as studies have revealed were proven to be of European origen, more than 1000 years ago.

  15. The information was great – this should be sent out to the rest of the world so they can learn some valuable information. People are like sheep they go ba ba ba ba and believe everything the media feeds them. And if anyone has claim it is the Koi and San – all the other blacks migrated to southern Africa.

    They (Zuma and his circus) seem to forget who built the country up – now they can just walk in and take what they want. Before civilized people got to the country the blacks were still run around in skins and lived primitively.

    Now all of a sudden Nigerians and blacks from all over Africa and coming to SA and stating this is their country. These people either have an IQ below zero or they are very thick skinned – (both).

    Well I think we should tear down all the buildings, dig up the roads and let them have SA in it’s raw state before the settlers arrived. They hate the white, yet the irony is they spend millions each year trying to look like the whites – skin lighteners, false long hair, false nails and the list goes on.

    The BLACKS have put the San in reserves and have treated these wonderful gentle people inhumanely and like dirt. Take a look what happened in Botswana (good example). And lets not forget a (bad workman always blames his tools) the blacks have stolen and ran this country into the ground and when it back fires then guess what (it is because of apartheid) my my when are they going to get over themselves and get a life instead of being a nation of (give me give me you owe me). Very very very sad.

    They want to take the farmers lands – well should the farmers decide not to farm anymore – what do these idiots think they are going to eat – (their stable diet PAP comes from the farmers) all the vegetables and meat they buy comes from the farmers. It has been proved over and over and over again when land has been given to them the plant 10 rows of mielies (that should feed their nation) hahahaha and the land becomes baron.

    The Law of Attraction – when you hate yourself – so shall everyone else. They are digging the largest hole ever for themselves at this stage, as I sincerely hope that the rest of the world will not deliver food and aid when shit hits the fan and they are starving once again. People around the world (the bleeding heart societies) always come to their rescue – and they know this so that is why they do not have a care about the future.

    It is time that everyone stop hand out and stop coming to their rescue.

    I am proudly South African and ashamed of the government, I have not raped the country, stolen or murdered and have worked hard and put back into my country. I have many many generations of ancestors that were born and bred in SA – SO YES THIS IS ALSO MY HOMELAND.

    1. I read a report this week that says that the average age of a white farmer is 62………the consequence of this will be far reaching seeing that government policy is also not in favour of those that feed the nation.

  16. I have read most of the comments to this article. I am of the opinion that when you take out the propaganda from both sides and look at the all the “facts”.my fear for my children’s future in our country is being realised. The blatant sense of entitlement by most blacks in this country is astonishing. I have started a new personal policy, not to assist any black person in any way. This will hopefully change when black South Africans get off their butts and produce anything of value to this country. We as a nation are doomed, until the new generation of educated young black people, who realise that without the whites in this country we will go back to the nomadic existences that was once the way of life.

  17. a torn country heading for self destruction. Have never envisaged so much hatred in such a large chunk of land. We wait and see. Blacks , whites, coloureds, Indians so much antagonism and high sense of entitlement. Tic toc…..

  18. At last it is there for all to see !
    Another myth, also ignored by the world (and Black People), is that it took two to tango in the Slave Trade. Like the British rid their land of criminals by sending them to, among other, Australia, so the tribal chiefs of West Africa got rid of political opponents and the ‘riff-raff’ of their states and flogged them to White traders.
    White Slave Traders ? Ha ! Have a look at what the Muslims go up to in NW Africa – 1700s – (Tangier, Morocco). Whole cities were built by White slaves obtained from piracy and raids on British coastal towns. But that’s another can o’ worms …

  19. @Eddie The Zulu shaman Vusamazula Credo Mutwa, the pope of Black African beliefs and religion in his two books “My People” (1969) and “Indaba my People” he traces the history of the South African Blacks back to the Hutus and the Tutsis. He knows not only the history of his own tribe the Zulus, but also the history of all the black tribes of South Africa. Unlike the Bushmen, the blacks never recorded their history in written form. But the Bushmen did and their rock paintings from the Drakensberg, scattered to the Kalahari, tells of their persecution and destruction by the black tribes who invaded their lands in SA. The Xhosas for instance did so much killing of the San and stealing their wives that they have actually incorporated the click sounds of the Bushmen language into their own Nguni language. The first colonialists to have killed the Bushmen en masse were the Bantu people. Credo Mutwa affirms it. Credo Mutwa, the Bantu historian tells of how the blacks committed a genocide against the San and Khoi people. He even describes the obvious genetically differences between the two races. Credo Mutwa also refers to the “Drip-Drip genocide” and compares it to what is happening to whites in SA at the moment.

  20. A few other points that need to be made.
    [1] The original inhabitants of Southern Africa were the Khoi [Hottentots] and the the San [Bushmen] Regrettably the Khoi were decimated by diseases – smallpox – contracted from the white man.
    [2] San rock art paintings can be found in caves from the Cedarberg to the Drakensberg. Today they reside in the Kalahari, driven there by the advancing back hordes from the north
    [3] The 1913 Land Act was created and drafted in the Westminster Parliament, London UK. This division of the country can’t be blamed on the Afrikaner as they had little if any political power at the time.
    [4] The land allocated to the 9 black tribes of South Africa was effectively 100% of what they had always had. So the “fact” that 13% of the population [whites] had 80% of the land was a propaganda lie in the anti-apartheid campaign.
    [5] These territories had name changes over time. In the 1950s they were Native Reserves, then in the 1960s Bantustans and finally in the 1970s Homelands.
    [6] Theophilus Shepstone [British / SA Politician – Native Administrator] was Knighted by Queen Victoria for his Native Policy – which was – “We [The British] have no right to impose our civilisation on the black tribes. Leave them to live their traditional tribal life in their reserves. Should they wish to cross over into the white western capitalist industrial society they can do so at their own pace in their own time.]
    [7] It is interesting to note that this land reservation for indigenous peoples was practiced by the colonial powers in the USA, Canada [Reservations], Australia, New Zealand and Rhodesian [Tribal Trust lands] Except for Zimbabwe these systems still exist today and in 3 of the countries mentioned the Head of State is HM Queen Elizabeth II of England, UK …… hmmmmm?
    [8] Another popular myth is that Prime Minister Hendrik Verwoerd was the “architect of apartheid.” Not true. The first segregationist law on any statute book in what became the Union of South Africa can be found on that of The British Crown Colony of Cape c1807 and later The British Crown Colony of Natal c1843. The Boer Republics only came into being in 1854 and 1856. The full legislative trail can be followed on:
    [9] Check the date when the ANC was founded – 1912. Who was running the country at the time? The British / English South Africans with the formation of the Union of SA in 1910 after the end of the Anglo-Boer War in 1902 – and all the wars against the black tribes which had preceded that between 1806 and 1898. So another myth gets blown out of the water. Blacks started protesting their lack of political rights and participation in the mainstream political process as imposed on them by the SA English – not the Afrikaners. Between 1910 and 1948 only the Hertzog administration was an Afrikaner Government for a 4 year term. So for a full 138 years – 1806 to 1948 less the Hertzog 4 years – South Africa was firmly a British Apartheid State. Facts dear reader which the mainstream English liberal media go to great lengths not to publicise.

    1. I also get confused when it is claimed that Verwoed was the architect of apartheid and that apartheid lasted 47 years when in fact it dates back to the 1800’s

  21. These sub saharan trouble makers were chased out of the northern parts of Africa until they arrived in the southern most part of Africa were they stumbled upon the Koisan, the Hottentot, the San people also known as the Stranlopers and many other indigenous people and they did to them then what they are doing to the foreign nationals in 2015.

  22. How does one restore a national mentality that has gone viral?
    How does a virus die? Easily so. When the victim succumbs and dies, the virus too must perish!

  23. It’s obvious in hindsight, given the prodigous birth rate of the late-arrival African popluation, that the only hope for S. Africa was to demarcate. Why didn’t this happen?

    1. ds: “Why didn’t this happen?” Have you read even the shortest summary of S.A. history? Do you know what Apartheid is? Oh yes, we tried demarcation all right, and the International Community decided on our behalf that it was Not Permitted. Now we are stuck with the results, and the International Community is off chasing butterflies or something, having lost interest in the aftermath. The most they ever do, if anything, is to shake their heads and click their tongues and mutter “what a shame.” Way to take responsibility, guys. “International Community,” my left foot. Professional interfering busybodies is more like it.

      (And by the way, Apartheid was mishandled and I don’t consider it to have been a good thing, but I have to believe that there was a better way to abolish it than to put Communist terrorists in control of the country.)

  24. The white man thought he could invade and conquer Africa the way he did in N. America and Australia. But unfortunately for whitey, his disease could not kill off Africans like the American Indian and that African population was much greater than Native American Indians. They only option for whitey is to go back to home sweet Europe. Get out of the African continent whitey!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    1. @Dini This Sounds like ANC Propaganda. You must be one of those Genocide supporters. The fact is that the first Afrikaner family was a marriage between Pieter Van Meerhof and Eva Kroata (a Khoi-San ) woman. The Afrikaner people have more right to the land than the invading Bantu tribes, so yes I agree, you should go back to where you came from, no place for racists here…

    2. Dini you are blinded by your ego and sense of entitlement. It is a well known fact that black south africans are not the original inhabitants of this country. Blacks are just as much ‘invaders’ as whites. If the whiteys must go back to europe then the blackies must go back to central africa. How about dropping the racist crap youve been indoctrinated with and start educating yourself.

    3. Being a White man, I only gave you an upvote for the sentiment of “the only option for whitey is to go back home” because I don’t believe Whites should be in Africa at all. And the only way for Whites to avoid being raped, murdered and/or eaten by subhumans is to live with other Whites. As for the rest of your comment, I think it goes along with the rest of the continent’s thinking.

  25. This is nothing new – and has been known for nearly 200 years – go read “Washing of the Spears” and “Impressions of South Africa” James Bryce from from 1890s…..

  26. If you can add proof to your facts with examples from reliable sources, good for you! Make a documentary about this and go big! Our children need to learn the truth as they’re fed untruths at school.

  27. I would like to see you , together with historians , chiefs , tribal leaders and Khoi San representation get together and talk this through. Exclude the narrow minded land grabbers. Spend a lot of time on this topic and draw up a document and make a documentary. This is critical as land grabbing will result in a revolution and there are no winners after a revolution. This whole land issue is the main cause of racism, intolerance and hatred between people . As per the genographic project the Khoi and San lived in the whole of Southern Africa for 80 000 years before the settlers came. Science fact. Thank you for a start to stopping all the nonsense about land ownership.

  28. nobody cares about the truth.. It does not matter any more. We are the monsters an corrupt and ineffective government needs to survive. As long as the myth of an “happy” Africa before the white man exists, no amount of evidence will change the world view. Or that of the public.

  29. Please clarify this for me please any academic with the tru facts
    After 1933 depression a fund was established by the broederbond to help impoverished poor whites to study, a few schools were then established that was Cristian National like Oranje Meisie skool in Bloemfontein
    Previously to that schooling was mostly done by Sendelinge and governises imported from Europe.
    There were hardly enough teachers to teach Englisch and Dutch kids. Black education were a problem because of a language barrier . The only, “teachers” were domestic workers that over time learned Englisch Afrikaans or Duch, From there the historical reason for inadequately trained teachers. if history lies about this please help me to understand better.? For separation in schools at the stage where the only way to make use off limited resources .

    It took years to train enough teachers to teach kids in their mother tongue , let alone at college and university’s
    Now we are at the point where there is resources .
    I cannot understand why English is not brought into schools as the main language . Most of our Race problems is based on poor communication and language barriers, if all could communicate in one universal language there would have been some sort of equal opportunity for learners.
    Now learners from black schools gets priorities on exemption as far as I have been informed black students need a lower average than white students to be admitted to university is this True?
    The correct I formation on these ussues will be appreciated by the public

    1. It is the same all over the world nowadays. In every aspect of life. A life where truth is the new hate speech and indigenous populations forcefully of peacefully take over the host.

  30. You cannot successfully educate people with the truth if they do not want to hear it. They will always believe only what suits them and what they want to believe.

  31. Dear White people
    Africa is the ancestral home of black people (San, Khoi Khoi, Xhosa etc) and Europe is the ancestral home of white people(English, Portuguese, Dutch etc). In the words of Nelson Mandela “We will forgive but we will never forget”. So stop being sore lovers and be part of the new South Africa or simply leave.
    Trust me you will not be missed.

    1. I would absolutely love it if all the whites in South Africa did leave to Europe. They would be refugees actually worth having. As for them not being missed…we’ll see. Just ask your pals in Zimbabwe.

      I have no compassion left for black Africans. I do not wish for whites to inflict violence upon them. Rather, I wish for the worst punishment imaginable: leaving them alone. Considering how poorly Africans do even with help from the white man, it’s hard to even fathom how much more they can sink if faced with self-reliance.

    2. We are already missing them. Eskom misses them dearly. The defense force misses them dearly. The healthcare system misses them dearly. The list goes on and on and on. The next time you have a lovely little load shedding episode just think of whitey. That guy actually knew how to turn on the lights.

  32. Shame my dear fellow African. You can write your racist rubbish because a white man taught your ancestors to read and write. And you write it using technology developed by a white man. Tonight you will watch TV, use electricity, drive home in a car, get into pyjamas, listen to music, the list goes on and on…., all because of the technology white people developed and brought to this continent. Yet your pride and hatred has blinded you so much that you think you don’t need anyone. Truth is everyone has something very special to offer to the world. That includes you and all black people of Africa. Why don’t you thank the living God for what the white man has done for society next time you step into that BEE position and using technology that comes from a non-black European? Acknowledge every race as a unique gift from God and get rid of your bitterness as your children get given jobs, scholarships and promotion knowing that they were not necessarily the best but they are the blackest and at this time in history it is an advantage albeit unfortunately not for the economy as we can see. “You are because I am and I am because you are”.

  33. We all know the white lies about history. If blacks moved from the North why are all African-American DNA not related to any of the southern tribes of Africa

  34. What is needed is a complete reset. Remove every single white person from the country, and watch what will happen over a period of 20 to 30 years. Just allow the remaining people to improve on what they have, just like they did in the rest of Africa for the last 40 years.

  35. Nobody here has commented on the role of Jews, from impoverishing the world with the USSR from 1917 and their resulting world war, to massive financial fraud, and the purchasing and corruption of the media, something which is only reducing because of Internet – as this article shows. Many whites don’t understand Jews, as a result of censorship; but I’m much more pessimistic about black awareness, as Jews know how to control blacks’ beliefs through the media – as the comments here show, very depressingly. The Soros-funded ‘Black Lives Matter’ synthetic pseudo-movement, and the continual suppression of black violence from US news, and the continual ridiculous lies about black skills, point the same way. Jews also control much nominally non-Jewish military action, and numerous atrocities are thereby blamed on other groups, usually white.

  36. My grandpa, born in 1884, was part of a workforce that built the Hartbeespoort dam. (+/- 40 km west of Pretoria). There was not a single black person involved in building that dam. My granddad and dad was was living 50 km north of the dam. My dad was 14 years old when he saw the first black person.

  37. My ancestor came to SA in 1673, with proof in the Castle of Good Hope signed by van Riebeeck. My family tree are one of the largest in SA. We were here long before any Bantu (Nguni) settlers crossed the Fish River by a few 100 years. The bantu settlers have no claim to large swathes of land

  38. This is the answer to a question which i have been asking for some time, and it appears that my suspicions are upheld. This question of ownership is similar to Australia where the Aboriginals of today wrongly claim that the country is theirs, but in fact they stole it from another previous tribe of Aboriginals after killing them off. But this is not all, this previous tribe of Aboriginals in their turn had killed the true owners and taken over ownership. This first tribe of Aboriginals were a very small race of people known as NEGRITOs. There a few of them still living quietly in the Atherton area of north Queensland. So yes, here is another lie of ownership.

  39. Well the UN are useless, so its up to the British to do something to stop this murder of farmers. Bring in the British army. They moved into Kenya when the blacks started killing white farmers there, and everything was sorted for the best.

  40. Some important insights are not covered in this article:
    “Slash and burn” agriculture by the blacks: very low usage of the land by the blacks. 95% of potential land lay bare and was later used by whites that could farm it by improving the ground. Blacks could not sustain a population bigger than 2 million odd inhabitants with their agricultural techniques.
    Battle against the tetse fly.. That made former impossible grazing lands available for cattle farming and habitation.
    Local warlords gave away terrain to white farmers to improve their food shortage situation. They knew that their food shortage and “near Malthusian” equilibrium with food resources improved dramatically. Most blacks found work on the new farms and lived a very peaceful life on the new farms with a dramatic improvement of life standards compared with life in the full black villages. New food stocks like maize ,wheat, potatoes ,food bananas, yucca, new type of fruits came available and reinforced food production and health of the population. Wine grapes are just the latest type of crop that came to South Africa which made it a present big wine producer. On the farms blacks and whites lived harmoniously together. Blacks in the white farming areas found safety they never experienced before. It caused the population boom of the blacks.
    Blacks like Bantoes have a very low average IQ. It is in the low 70’s compared to 100 average for whites. Organized structures , technology , schooling possibilities ,political leadership is difficult to develop. Blacks needed the intelligence of the whites to guide them in the possibilities. Look for Lynn and Vanhanen that made IQ studies about the relation between IQ and degree of prosperity and development.
    Virtual all industrial , transport , mining and trade potential of SA was developed by whites.
    In fact every African nation would do better if they would import more whites to run the technological and organizational aspects of their society. What happens in SA now is the reverse. It will collapse all gains made in the past. For their low average IQ there is no hope for these countries, to do it themselves. Blacks should protect their whites in self interest. Some blacks know that but it is a minority. IQ is not a boon in their lives, where interpersonal battle is: that is the makeup of the black genome. The dream of the ANC communists is that everybody is equal (even in IQ , gender etc) and that communism could fix that reality. It is proven wrong as even completely white societies under communismwith high average IQ’s fare disastrously bad under such a system. The USSR ,Cuba , Venezuela, China, Romania, Nicaragua have proven that communism is a guarantee for political murder and suppression, while having a low standard of life.
    From Belgium grts.

  41. Good article and a lot of helpful comments.
    The problem in South Africa is Marxism.
    The sad part is the Black Marxists received a White education

  42. I’m no expert but i’m pretty sure Africans, are indigenous to Africa … isn’t it established we’re all from Africa?
