    Boko Haram had given South Africa 24 hours to end the xenophobic attacks otherwise it would attack and kill South Africans in African countries.

    Joint Operational Centres (JOC) have been opened across South Africa to curb the ongoing sporadic attacks on foreigners, the looting of foreign owned shops, and the defacing of statues

    Granting Eskom’s request to hike the price of electricity by a further 12.61 percent would have a “devastating” effect on the South African economy

    http://www.iol.co.za/business/news/eskom-hike-could-push-consumers-over-edge-1.1857258#.VVNkUY6qpHw

    Ina Wilken of the SA Consumer Union said raising the price of electricity again would impact millions of South African families.

    “There is not one sector of the economy that will not be affected. The ordinary person is going to be hardest hit and this will put them in an even more dire financial situation than they were before. It is just going from bad to worst as increase will have a detrimental effect on peoples disposable incomes,” she said.

    Cape preparing for total blackout

    Apart from generators, one of the crucial needs would be additional two-way radios as it would be essential to keep communication channels functioning during a blackout.
    Hugo said sanitation “tops the list” of departments for which electricity is essential.
    “We have over 300 sewerage pump stations. Water is a close second…

    It is as if what we in the US see in dysfunctional cities like Detroit, Baltimore, and a few others that are run by people who are where they are based on color and political views more than qualifications is what happens to an entire country when color and political views are the key determinant in holding the key positions such as has occurred in SA.

    Bashir has been indicted by the ICC for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide against some of the tribes of Sudan’s western Darfur region. Two warrants of arrest were issued against him in 2009 and 2010. As a member of the ICC, South Africa is obliged to arrest him and surrender him to the ICC.

    The application before the High Court in Pretoria was brought by the Southern Africa Litigation Centre who wanted South Africa to arrest Bashir who was in the country to attend the 25th African Union summit taking place in Johannesburg.

    Every time I read things from the dark continent such as this, I hate to admit it but can only shake my head.

    With the proliferation of arms, and other .mil supplies in Africa its amazing that no one has stepped up and used the fuzzies own methods against them.

    That has always amazed me as well. I don’t get why the general population puts up with this sort of crap. Historically, they have had to defend themselves from animals, climate and all sorts of other aggressors. Now they won’t defend themselves from these other jack-holes? What happened to these people where they feel oppression is perfectly acceptable?

    A rather sarcastic they got the leaders they deserve comes to mind.

    However I was more thinking about a smaller number of highly educated and trained people effecting global change on a local level.

    Removing the terrs, no matter what position or status.

    It’s all about who has the guns. It’s hard to defend yourself against machine guns with machetes.

    : ) Ah ! The bigger picture

    Reports have emerged that South African troops in Sudan were held hostage until Omar al-Bashir returned to his country.

    Update: My South African friend in Sudan said No troops were held hostage in Sudan.

    .For us in SA this means that our leaders simply ignore international signed agreements. They will sign it – but they will not live up to their agreement. They can even ignore the high court. Personally I think it is possible that Obama has killed way more humans than Al-Basjir by now but that it most probably beside the point. We are so screwed.
