#SocialMediaShutdown WE SURVIVED!!!

#DataMustFall

If John has a shop and you buy bread from him at R20 five times a week…he is getting R100 from you every week.

 

If you do not buy for one day, he earns R80 rand from you (loses 20)

If two of you do this then instead of making R200, he is only getting R160 (loss 40)

If three of you do this then instead of making R300, he is making R240 (loss 60)

If four of you do this then instead of making R400, he is makingR320 (loss 80)

 

Do you now see that the more people join this campaign the more cellular networks will lose revenue? At some point they will have to budge. They rely on the naysayers to safeguard them from exploiting us. They need you to believe that this will never work. But this is simple maths guys. Capitalists work with numbers….there is at least eighty million cellular phone subscribers in South Africa. WE are those eighty million.

 

Please continue to spread the word on the #DataMustFall protest. This is truly a strategy that requires numbers. You have nothing to lose, just one day in the week. Wednesdays to be specific.

Until data prices fall we will be having 24hour shut downs where we will switch off data and not buy data.

 

These cellular networks are exploiting us and have us at ransom. Please lodge your complaints to the competition commission of SA http://www.compcom.co.za/complaints/ as this is not ethical business practice. We cannot have the second highest data costs in the world with our high unemployment rate.

These high data prices are a violation to the right to access to information. In this Information Age it is crippling our nation not having access to the internet.

They also create barriers into industries as entrepreneurs have to carry this obscene cost of data. Students can’t access their schoolwork. This madness has to stop.

 

This movement is a peoples movement, it is nobody else’s responsibility to fight this battle…please do what you can. If you have legal information or ways forward, lead. This is an opportunity for us ALL to use our power.

 

Big UP to all South Africans who were dedicated to the data struggle yesterday…we survived the #SocialMediaShutDown…..next week Wednesday we make it even bigger.

 

Tell everybody you know….the revolution is HERE!!!!

GUPTA VS WCM

 

I want to tell you exactly why you are wasting my time when you focus solely on the Guptas with regards to the economy:

 

“R100 is stolen from me by two thieves John and Ahmed. John takes R80 and Ahmed takes R20….the last thing I’m going to do is help John chase Ahmed for my R20. John and Ahmed must both bring back my money or I must take it back. – Ntsiki Mazwai”

 

We were hoodwinked in CODESA guys. Owing to the fact that we follow a western justice system, they sat us down and played by their own rules and retained one of the most important assets to this country, the economy. And white people do that often.

Bayafika

Basikhumshele

Sibathembe

Basitshontshele.

 

They sat us down in that CODESA and sold us lies knowing FULL well what the assets and liabilities of this country were. They built the system so they fully understand its strengths and weakness’. They picked the right black faces to lead us. They taught those black faces how to run that system which essentially enriched white people and turned the black working class into slaves.

The ANC did not get into government and change laws and policies. It replaced the NP government, it is running the exact same system. ANC is essentially employed by white capital. This system we inherited has been running for centuries. The current government is there to secure overseas investors and make white people feel safe about their money.

 

For us people on the ground when we speak of the economy it is assumed we are only talking about the price of bread and milk and how this will affect us. Infact we are now talking about the collective monies made at JSE. We are talking about the private sector which is making trillions off the working class. We are talking about the fact that there are no fixed employment rules so white employers have for centuries been paying what they ‘feel’ like paying. Which is how a Pick n Pay teller can go home with R4 000 and management can get X10 of that if not more. How do they come to this conclusion that they deserve so much more than the people who actually do the work on the ground? You’re going to throw education at me, this education that we can ONLY get from the white man… at a fee. Kudlaliwe ngathi yazi. There are also MANY uneducated white people in high level management positions.

 

So essentially at CODESA we were given the political vote, (whatever that is) but not given the economy…the fruits of our land.

ANC failed to reverse economic trade policies that benefited foreigners over the indigenous people of this land. Our economy is a big cow on the ground being eaten by white people and ANC has been given a leg to eat and share amongst themselves. Now the ANC have brought in their Indian friends the Guptas to the kill and their Indian friends are not as submissive as them when it comes to eating and confronting whites. The Indians are not as scared of whites as the blacks are. Infact the Guptas are also only just using the blacks as their ticket in. The Indian family is not here to free the economy, they are here to eat and they are unapologetic about it.

 

What we have is a situation where the ANC and the Guptas are now starting to eat into the stomach of the fallen cow South Africa and it is upsetting white people as they feel that the cow is theirs.

White people in South Africa run the media and thus the narrative. They have used every media possible to make a noise about the Guptas and no noise about the remaining three legs , the torso and head of the cow which they continue to eat from. Essentially whites don t want to share the money they make by using us as sophisticated slaves. They can see the Guptas coming in and changing the ‘NP System’ and the real fear is that they are getting excluded from the economy. That is why they need us black people to fight this Gupta battle for them.

 

I was looking at a list 10 richest men in south Africa…..it is inundated in whiteness. THAT is who the enemy is.

 

Personally, I think the ANC, Guptas and White Capitalists should ALL be charged and sent to jail where they all belong.

Dear White Friend

It is important for me to write you this letter so that you and I can relate better. You are a wonderful person and I truly enjoy our engagement. There are so many issues that we relate on and our conversations are filled with much laughter. There is however one serious problem with our relationship- it is when you apologise for racism.

My friend you have a lot of unlearning to do, you and me both. You are going to have to get off your pedestal called white supremacy and learn how to be empathetic. You are also going to have to learn how to LISTEN.

You and I have very different experiences of life here in South Africa: you have grown accustomed to having your ass licked by Africans, something I will never know. I need you to understand that black people do not humble themselves to you because you are a ‘nice’ person, they have been terrorized into behaving in that manner. So where you step into a world where everyone must grovel at your feet I as a black person experience the exact opposite of that from your people.

I can and I will go to a rugby game with you but do not insult me by pretending you do not feel the ‘vibe’ from your people. I understand that you have been socially engineered to think you are superior to me, please don’t pretend that shit doesn’t exist? Respect me enough to call a spade a spade and racism is racism.

This thing of yours where you create scenarios and stories for why a white person treated a black person like shit is very offensive. Stop feeding us both your fairytales and call racism by it’s name. And have the guts to call your fellow whites out.

I am not here as your token black friend, to soothe your ego and make you feel like you are not racist. You have been brought up to be racist, stop pretending and start unlearning. It is VERY possible to have black friends and still be racist, just as it is possible to adopt black children and still be racist.

You have never taken the time to learn African etiquette and quite frankly many times I have had to take a very deep breath when you say some of the things you say. Thing is, you have westernised me so much that I know how to speak in an appropriate way in your manner. You on the other hand can say such offensive and ungrateful things. Ungrateful yes, like your white paranoia about how black people are murdering you in genocide and other tales you white people concoct on Whatsapp. You really say some really bizarre things about my people and many times I keep quiet to keep the peace, but seriously my friend, you have some unlearning to do. There is no longer any peace to keep, we have reached a point where you need to make some changes.

My friend you are not much different from the other whites, you have all gone through the same brainwash. You think racism is happening somewhere outside and yet here I am facing it in our relationship.

My friend, if you are really serious about having a black friend, you are going to have to allow a long process where I teach you how to treat me. Your ways are not the same as mine. What may seem rational to you may be appalling to me. For this relationship to work we are going to need more than just your point of view. Especially since the oppressor can’t speak for the oppressed- you cannot speak on behalf of something you have never been through. Doing so is an act of arrogance.

 

My friend…when you make excuses for racist white people, I am left thinking that I am friends with an undercover racist, the worst kind of racist.

ANC NYOLS

Kahle kahle Anc has nyols. What an absolute disaster of a once powerful struggle movement. ANC is the longest running African political party in SA so it is quite disappointing that it has become what it has become…..rubbish.

A question for ANC members: At which point do you hold your leaders accountable? For the past 22 years all we have seen is ANC leaders being corrupt and getting away with it.

We have no example of an ANC leader being held accountable. The only time ANC has ever punished anyone, was when ANC shot itself in the foot by recalling Thabo Mbeki. You all are such a greedy and power hungry lot you couldn’t even let him finish his term. Well since that spectacular move, ANC has been a huge disaster area. What has become apparent is that you have no vision or plan for SA, you are just rotating positions around so some of your dodgy leaders can live in big houses.

 

ANC…..you have been an embarrassment. Let us address the new scandal, you have so many scandals I should be more specific. The minister of water affairs, Nomvula Mokonyane the only affairs of hers we know is her love affairs and how she uses her position to buy toys for her boy. The toy in question is Mabala Noise. There has been much speculation on how this new music label was formed. It is a problem if the minister has funded her man with public funds to create a record label. Public funds are not pocket money for toy boys. I as a South African citizen need to be put to ease by the Minister coming out to defend these claims. And if these claims are true…she must be fired. We need to know how Mabala noise was funded and Shout Out to all the artists who are now potentially guilty of stealing public funds.

We cannot afford to have leaders who bring their bedroom to leadership positions. It is tacky and low class and does not make our country look good. This lady must stop using our money to keep a man.

 

If Minister Mokonyane’s boyfriend has been benefitting from corrupt deals, this matter must be addressed immediately.

ANC does not know how to call its leaders to order which is why we currently have a president that nobody wants. They will argue that we voted for ANC and thus for him, but we all know full well that Africans are suffering from the trauma of not wanting to be lead by whites and ANC is riding that fact. Too bad their attempts at leadership are nothing short of a tragic comedy.

Minister Mbalula even dropped porn on his twitter account and life went on as usual.

 

I will never support the SaveSA movement because it is just a white supremacy movement aiming to discredit black governance. These white capital monopolists are just angry because they can see we are about to take our economy back. No amount of distraction from Save SA will take away from the fact that they are living off stolen goods and stolen land. If Save SA is so serious about saving SA, why don’t they raise funds for Fees Must Fall amongst themselves since they run the economy? Instead they are out here acting self righteous when they are not different from the ANC….CORRUPT.

 

Can the ANC stop being such an embarrassment of government. You have fallen from grace and are a shadow of what you used to be. You have allowed rotten apples to take over the movement and they have contaminated your whole legacy. When are you going to get your act together and be what you claimed to be?   You claim to be a liberation movement but all you have proven is that, you are a bunch of self serving people with no vision just a great desire to be in power and to serve yourselves

We simply cannot have leaders who are blessing their toyboys with our taxes. sies man.

QUEEN OF THE HOUSE

 

After taking a year off her career to pursue a Masters degree in the Arts at Rhodes University, Ntsiki Mazwai is back with what she is best known for: poetry on house music.

One of South Africa’s most prolific lyricists, Mazwai has captivated the nation with her words for over a decade. This time around she teams up with Klerksdorp deep house Dj AcaSoul MusiQ to produce the single ‘People.

Soulful house music with a touch of jazz and mixed with Mazwai’s caramel voice and this is bound to be another crowd pleaser.

People’ is a song I wrote as I was going through my journey of learning in life. I learnt that people do not always have pure intensions. In the song I express disappointment in some of the people I put my trust in. I think that this song is about learning how to choose your friends wisely.”- Mazwai

Fake Humble

When Casspernyovest did FILL UP THE DOME: it was inspiring. When he did FILLUP THE STADIUM: he taught us how to dream.

When he stood on his two Bentleys…he was simply bragging and it degraded what he represented to me as a young South African.

 

What I used to like about Cassper was that he was humble, he gave us room to big him up and relate. As soon as Cassper made money he ditched the humble act.

Our youth need stars who will teach them noble characteristics. More than losing our land to white people, we have lost our principles and moral fibre. Our strong cultural and family foundation meant that before we were contaminated by white people, we were highly principled people. We were raised on Ubuntu. Our concept of God was Ubuntu. This meant that we had a deep understanding that human connection and mutual respect made a normal life, beautiful. I realise that most black people have amnesia but there was a time when we worked as a community and shared resources. There was a time when no family went hungry in any community. We even went as far as helping neighbours farm their lands. Even emakasi, no child went hungry. If a child had alcoholic parents who were not paying attention, that child always had another home in the neighbourhood. We had no orphans.

We lived on values that were about serving our community. Success was based on how much you uplifted other people, it was not a status given to you by a white man. Success was never about things you own, it was more about the things you did.

The white man comes along and gives some of us things and now we call that success. Who does that success serve? It feels nice on the ego but who does it uplift? Are we so desperate for white validation that all we want is a piece of their privilege and to look down on other blacks? Damn.

Is that what the struggle was about? Being like white people? Do we stand with our chests out because we are now in the white people’s club while millions of our people suffer?

I am not saying black people should not be proud of their success however if that success is based on material value then we are in more trouble than we think. Our people were raised to be humble, not because we are submissive and inferior, but because we have a deep understanding of the importance of human connection. It is possible to have all the money in the world and have no one to share it with- just as it is possible to have very little money and experience heaven on earth.

What has happened to our value systems? Izikhothane are a reflection of us. Everything that happens on our public domain is a mirror of what is going on within us.

For me, Cassper was inspiring when he was creating his own magic, he truly is a magician and it is beautiful to watch; but he was not inspiring when he was bragging about things outside of himself. Bentley is the winner here, they got all his millions. He could have invested that money on Fees Must Fall or building a decent school for black children in a village in the North West. (and if you don’t wanna be told what to do with your money, then keep it in your private life lil bro.)

There are African values we have forgotten and they made life so much sweeter. It would have been more powerful to discover the Bentleys sometime later, randomly. And when we found out we would have mused about how humble Cassper is.

Instead his friendslaves had to climb on top of each other and almost break their necks so that he could ego fart for us. Hehehehe no stru guys. Lol! Even the memes that followed, showed us that this is a strange thing hence all the energy around it.

And a young message to the youth….Don’t Brag. Stay Humble, that is where the magic of human connection lies. Don’t alienate and xhomela people because life happens in cycles. Everybody has Ups and Downs….keep it cool. People will always be ready to celebrate you if you want to be celebrated just be wise about how you ask for attention.

The economic state in SA is not at a level where blacks should be bragging to each other about money and cars.

 

Please… eat quietly if you are doing nothing to change the situation for other black people….we are asking you nicely.

 

PEOPLE (lyrics)

(This is just about people who use people)

People who use people

become too many people in one person

and if one person becomes too many people

then that person is not your people

That person is just a people who uses people

People who just

People who just use people

People who just

They are just people who use people.

 

What’s become of them?

Shame on them

Those who use human spirits

To advance their own benefits

Disregard emotions

With an ability to create illusions

With an ability to create illusions

With a false sense of connection

Gifted with tongues

Spitting melodic lies

Excited highs

While they walk to your demise

Energy drainers

Their intensions are not blameless

People who use people

Ngobani aba?

People who use people

 

People who use people

become too many people in one person

and if one person becomes too many people

then that person is not your people

That person is just a people who uses people

People who use people

Ngobani aba abasebenzisa imikhuba

Ukufumana izinto?

Dintho tsa lefatshe di kao makatsa

There is people who use people

Ngabantu abatheni aba

Dintho tsa le fatshi di kao makatsa

Dintho tsa le fatshi di kao makatsa

There are people who use people

People who use

People who use

People who use people

 

People who use people

become too many people in one person

and if one person becomes too many people

then that person is not your peoples

That person is just a people who uses people

People who

People who

People who use people

 

Have you mastered your smile

Rehearsed your lines

in that masterful mind?

Have you mastered your smile

And rehearsed your lines

In that masterful mind of yours?

Strong and resolute in your deception

You give me the impression

That you are driven by passion

But you’re not

You’re just a people who uses people

You give me the impression

That you are driven by passion

Little do I know that it is just manipulation

This outcome is part of your manifestation

People who use people

People who use

People who use

People who use people

 

I am stumped by you

I am stumped by you

Your sincerity is insincere

Your truth is dishonest

Your words have no weight

Your insincerity

Your sincerity is insincere

U nolwimi oluxokayo

Intliziyo engathembakali

You’re people who uses people

People who use people

 

People who use people

become too many people in one person

and if one person becomes too many people

then that person is not your peoples

That person is just a people who uses people
