Unrest in South Africa

Over the past two weeks, civil unrest broke out in South Africa. Directed against foreigners, it turned bloody.

Since the beginning of this year, economic conditions have deteriorated, in line with the global economic slowdown. Many companies have shed jobs- all across the business sectors. An estimated 60, 000 jobs have been lost in the first half of this year.

With an ever rising cost of living, this has brought about anger and dissatisfaction within various low-income communities. This frustration was then channeled towards migrant workers from neighboring African countries. The locals felt that the foreign residents were taking jobs away from them, and warned companies not to employ them, or face retribution. When that did not work, the locals vented their anger on migrant workers and traders.

Trucks were burnt, shops were looted, and xenophobic assaults increased. Joining them were various criminal elements, along with unemployed people. For two weeks, sporadic unrest continued, centered mainly in the industrial and commercial hub of the country- Johannesburg. Law enforcement could barely cope.

Now, one may ask, was this an incident that was spontaneous, or was it pre-meditated? As a former American President (FDR-1933-1945) once remarked; “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.”

Allegations have also come up that ANC factional politics took advantage of the unrest. The ANC is a deeply divided political party. The ANC has split up into several factions; the two most powerful are the pro-Ramaphosa camp and the pro-Zuma camp. Allegations have been raised that the pro-Zuma faction took sides by discreetly supporting the wave of unrest, as a means of embarrassing Ramaphosa’s administration. Only time will tell if this is true or not.

The question now remains, Cui Bono? – Who benefits?

By now, most of our readers know that the current President of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa, is a proxy for the London Rothschilds. London’s influential network in South Africa has taken over the government. One of the issues that the President had to resolve was the privatization of public utility, Eskom.

The delay by Ramaphosa in moving forward on the Eskom privatization was creating immense frustration in London, Sandton and Stellenbosch. Our thesis is that these protests and mayhem may have been a message to Ramaphosa to start moving faster on the Eskom privatisation.

Ramaphosa must have come to the realization that saying is one thing, but doing it is another. Generally, looking at examples of many privatization deals done across the globe over the past two decades has brought on more problems than they have solved. In most cases, the people and economy became worse off.

Why is London so desperate to accelerate the privatization of Eskom? That’s because London is in deep financial trouble- especially its financial sector.

The Rothschild’s European and British banks are under heavy attack by American authorities. Since June 2014, when the Mossad murdered Richard Rockefeller, there has been a deep split between the world’s two most powerful dynasties, and over the past five years, this has turned ugly. Furthermore, British banks have lost the bulk of their capital since the 2008 financial crash. In short, British banks are technically insolvent.

Now, when a mother is sick, the children rally around and help. In this case the mother is British finance, and one of the children is South Africa. London’s game-plan was to put Ramaphosa in office, followed by a wave of privatization of state-owned entities. Along with this, vast amounts of money would be drained out of South Africa to sustain British finance.

Britain is indeed in serious trouble. With a “no-deal Brexit” becoming a reality by 31 October, many companies have either moved out of London, or have reduced staff. The economy is in recession. The pound fell to a historic low at the beginning of September, when it traded at 1.10 to the dollar- its lowest since September 1985, when it traded at 1.05 to the dollar.

Something urgent was needed to shake up Ramaphosa, and British Intelligence acted. And we all know what the result was. Let us see how Ramaphosa manages events over the coming weeks. Stay tuned, folks!
