Sounds like shit is going to get real very fast in South Africa so it likely warrants its own thread.

So post any shit about South Africa goings on, past history, etc.

Here's a story to start out with:

--- Quote ---Police in the Free State are investigating a case of murder and house robbery following the murder of a well-known cattle farmer on his farm near Vredefort.

The 71-year-old Dirk Steenkamp was allegedly inspecting a water pump on his farm not far from his house yesterday at 07:00 when he was overpowered by an unknown number of suspects, and subsequently shot.

Police spokesperson, Loraine Earl, told OFM News the attackers fled the scene with Steenkamp's cellphone and weapon.

She says Steenkamp's wife, who heard shots, alerted the police and various farmers.

Earl says she wasn't hurt.

According to information, farmers acted swiftly and in collaboration with the police, a manhunt was launched.

It is alleged that the attackers arrived on the farm with a car in which they also fled the scene.  A reliable source told OFM News it is believed that Steenkamp put up a fight with his attackers before he was shot.

As far as it is known, no arrests have been made yet.

The RSA just hosted the first round of the UCI World Cup MTB season. It was an XCO race which is pretty much Whites Only (for real). The locals drank grey water and took 2 minute showers while the athletes and the course itself drank imported bottles of water lmao what a country!!!

Ps some of the greatest MTB legends (and current DHI GOAT) are from RSA so it’s all good.

This is anti-white racist Panyaza Lesufi's "edukayshion" in action at Drie Riviere High School. As long as they're not exposed to Afrikaans, Panyaza, you old Interahamwe fan?— Lackadaisical Dan (@danroodt) March 9, 2018

Also not to worry fam, the new South African president insists that this land grab won't negatively affect the economy:

--- Quote ---President Cyril Ramaphosa on Wednesday held discussions with Moody’s on the various initiatives under way to accelerate the country’s economic growth and create jobs.

At the meeting‚ which comes just two weeks before Moody’s is set to announce its latest outlook on South Africa‚ Ramaphosa also reaffirmed that accelerated land reform would unfold within a clear legal framework and without negatively affecting economic growth‚ agricultural production and food security.

Moody’s is a provider of credit ratings‚ research and risk analysis.

This was the first time that the agency had interacted with Ramaphosa since he was elected the country’s president last month.

Ramaphosa’s meeting with Moody’s follows one that newly-appointed Finance Minister Nhlanhla Nene had with the ratings agency on Monday‚ when he outlined government’s economic and fiscal plans.

The Presidency said that in the meeting at Tuynhuys in Cape Town‚ Ramaphosa described the new mood of hope‚ renewal and unity in South Africa - and the enthusiasm of its people to contribute to change and development.

“President Ramaphosa said this new enthusiasm was anchoring all efforts to confront the challenges facing South Africa‚ including government’s initiatives to increase investor confidence and reduce policy and regulatory uncertainty‚” the Presidency said in a statement.

It said fresh consultations on the Mining Charter‚ recent measures to strengthen Cabinet‚ changes in the board and management of Eskom and an inquiry into state capture formed part of government’s invitation to investors to come to South Africa.

“President Ramaphosa underlined government’s determination to build a social compact of government‚ labour‚ business and civil society to advance investment‚ youth employment and community development.”

He also said job creation was government’s most important priority and failure to create such opportunities constituted the greatest risk to the country.

Moody’s is due to announce its latest outlook on South Africa on March 23.

In November last year‚ Moody’s placed South Africa’s long-term foreign and local currency debt ratings of ‘BAA3’ (one notch above junk status) on a 90-day review for a downgrade.

In November last year‚ S&P Global followed in the footsteps of another ratings agency Fitch in downgrading South Africa’s credit rating to full junk status.

--- Quote ---Twenty-eight years ago, Cyril Ramaphosa stood outside Cape Town’s city hall, holding a microphone for Nelson Mandela, who had just been released from prison.

This week, days before he assumed the South African presidency, Ramaphosa stood at the very same spot, celebrating 100 years since his mentor’s birth, and received the blessings of Chabad-Lubavitch Rabbi Asher Deren, chairman of the Rabbinical Association of the Western Cape.

Deren evoked the assurance of the Rebbe—Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson, of righteous memory—addressed to the South African Jewish community, assuring them that South Africa would remain a safe and prosperous place to live until the arrival of Moshiach.

As a Kohen (priestly descendant of Aaron, brother of Moses), Deren conferred the biblical Priestly Blessing upon Ramaphosa, the ANC’s leader and the country’s current deputy president. “When I lifted my hands to bless him, he very humbly bowed forward and seemed very moved by the gesture,” Deren told

“There was a feeling of uncertainty and urgency,” Deren continued, “but these are also exciting times for our community. We are looking forward to a new era of increased cooperation, transparency, safety and prosperity for all South Africans.”

Commenting on the overwhelmingly positive and optimist transformation that has swept the country, South Africa’s Chief Rabbi Warren Goldstein commented that “the Lubavitcher Rebbe predicted this!”
