A vision lost

WHAT was the fundamental objective of the ANC when it was formed in 1912? Are the current ANC leaders pursuing that primary goal? Is the present ANC 100 years old or 57 years old?

On January 8, 1912, when opening the inaugural conference of the ANC (then called the South African Native National Congress), Pixley ka Seme said: “Kings of the royal blood and gentlemen of our race, we have gathered here to consider and discuss a scheme my colleagues have decided to place before you … In the land of our birth, Africans are treated as hewers of wood and drawers of water. The whites have formed what is known as the Union of South Africa in which we have no voice.” Continue reading

WESTERN COUNTRIES EXCHANGING HOMOSEXUALITY FOR AID

Western countries are threatening to withdraw financial aid from African countries that have not legalised homosexuality as a way of life. The West is posing as “champion” of democracy and human rights.  Not long time ago Western Europe and North America practised slavery, colonialism and racism, under-developed Africa and looted her riches.

SOBUKWE: My Idea of AFRICA IN 1973

Written in March 1959

What of our Africa in 14 years’ time? Will it be enjoying freedom and peace? Or will it sink to chaos and barbarism? What of those stages leading to a United States of Africa, as defined by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah at the All-Africa People’s Conference? Will they be implemented? These and other pertinent questions of the day are answered in this intriguing article, written for DRUM by Mangaliso Robert Sobukwe, who has lately been coming to the front inside South Africa.

 

NOBODY disputes our contention that Africa will be free from foreign rule. What is disputed by many, particularly the ruling white minority is that she will be free either “within our life time’’ or by 1963 or even by 1973 or 1984. Continue reading

HOW LONG WILL AFRICANS CELEBRATE LAND DISPOSSESSION?

2014 in South Africa marks 100 years since John Dube, Sol Plaatje and three other leaders of the South African Native National Congress (SANNC) presented a petition to King George V of England.

They were protesting against the colonial land dispossession of the African people of this country which created massive poverty.  Britain had in 1913 allocated five million African people 7% of their own land against 93% to its 349,837 colonial European settlers. Continue reading

THE AFRICAN UNION DESERVES CONGRATULATIONS

After a long time of disappointing many people, the African Union [AU] has given some hope that it can defend and protect African interests without fear from the intimidation of imperialist countries.

It was an unprecedented bold act on the part of the African Union (AU) to elect President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe as First Vice-Chairman of its executive during the General Assembly meeting of African Heads in Addis Ababa on 30th January 2014. This appointment paves the way for him to be eligible for the chairmanship of the AU in 2015 next year. Continue reading

The ICC: An Instrument of Imperialism

THE ICC IS NOW AN INSTRUMENT OF IMPERIALISM
MOTSOKO PHEKO
The Rome Statute is the treaty that established the International Criminal Court (ICC).

Twenty one other states abstained.
The states that voted against the establishment of the ICC were China, Iraq, Israel, Libya, Qatar, the United States of America and Yemen. The Rome Statute entered into force on 1st July 2002. Almost all African countries ratified the Rome Statute and they are the largest party to this Treaty. They agreed with its objectives of punishing those who commit crimes against humanity, genocide and war crimes. Continue reading

Truth was there Before ANC Freedom Charter Betrayal

TRUTH WAS THERE BEFORE ANC FREEDOM CHARTER BETRAYED AFRICANS
Motsoko Pheko
A great deal of false information was spread during June 2015 about the 60th anniversary of the “Freedom Charter” of the 1955 ANC. This was like asking the African people of this country to dance on the graves of their ancestors and spit on the bodies of their Kings who resisted colonialism with their blood to protect their land against colonialists.

Is evolution science or mere human speculation

IS EVOLUTION A SCIENCE OR MERE HUMAN SPECULATION?
Dr. Motsoko Pheko
Following the discovery of “Homo Naledi”on 10 September 2015 at Maropeng in Azania (South Africa) by Prof. Lee Berger and his team; Charles Darwin theory of evolution surfaced again. Berger’s baboon discovery has been proclaimed “as our human ancestor.” There are reports however that “Scientists are not exactly sure at this stage because they have not been able to accurately date the fossils after three different approaches failed.” Continue reading

African film in the bible

 AFRICAN FILM IN THE BIBLE                                    

 Dr. Motsoko Pheko

Africa and Africans are mentioned more than one thousand times in the Bible. Their frequent number is second only to that of the ancient Jews. Jews are mentioned more than 2500 times. Africans seem to be the only people who interacted more with ancient Jews than any other people on this planet.
Encyclopaedia Judaica attests to this historical fact when it records, “The propinquity (nearness) of the land of Israel to the African Continent profoundly influenced the history of the Jewish people.”
The Bible shows that God has used Africa and Africans in many different ways for His divine purposes on this earth. This is in addition to including His love for them in John 3:16 where the Bible declares:
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” Continue reading
