This is terrible. Some guy just claimed that the Apartheid regime in South Africa, was superior to what has come since. How dare this racist white suprem… wait a minute, this guy is black? Surely, this can’t be right?
The king praised the apartheid government while criticising black South Africans for ‘failing to build on the successes of the National Party’; instead choosing to destroy infrastructure and negating progress made during those years.
Is this guy suggesting that somehow, the country was better run when it was controlled by white people than it is under black people? What a horrible racist. There’s absolutely no evidence to suggest that the country has declined for that reason. We just need to look at other places which were formerly under white control, but are now prospering under black control. Places such as Detroit…
Ok. How about Haiti…
Ok, ok, I got it. Zimbabwe…
Zwelithini said that under that National Party SA had a strong economy, powerful rand and built a “mighty army.” He did, however, admit that the NP created anti-black laws, but that they had always treated him with respect.
“The economy that we are now burning down. You do not want to build on what you had inherited. You are going to find yourselves on the wrong side of history,” the King told followers at his palace in Nongoma.
How could they be on the wrong side of history? Sure, they once enjoyed living standards superior to any other black people on the entire continent of Africa, thanks to the hard work and ingenuity of the white European settlers, who built that country up, but now they’re in charge of a country that’s gradually declining to the same level as every other African country. Better to rule in hell than serve in heaven, right?
BusinessTech reports that the King said that while black South Africans are burning down apartheid-era buildings, the ANC is happy to take up residence in them.
“You don’t want to use them, you say this is apartheid infrastructure. Your leaders are occupying buildings where apartheid laws were made to oppress you. You on the ground are burning everything that you found here,” he said.
They have to destroy those buildings. They are tainted with the stench of white supremacy and black oppression. Sure, they aren’t going to build anything to replace them, because that would require effort, and intelligence, but destroying this infrastructure will be worth it because… reasons.
The Mercury reports that, even though King Zwelithini benefits directly from government funds – his annual salary is R1.03 million –, it’s not stopped him from voicing his grievances with the ANC-led government.
How could he possibly have grievances with them? Doesn’t he realise that as a black man, it’s more important to show racial solidarity with his black brethren, than the white devils who used to run things?
