South Africa's GENOCIDE Against the White People

In my previous XVI posts I did show you the beauty of South Africa, which we were fortunate to experience.

Just like my earlier post about Kashmir, where only husband Pieter did visit, {Shocking, Tragic and Horrible untold story of Kashmiri Hindus} it does affect us in a major way for knowing the untold story of South Africa's GENOCIDE against the white people.
Both of us actually WORKED and interacted with the people and that is quite different from being a TOURIST!
That gives you insight through the contact you have with the real people.
No cover up by the liberal Main Stream Media reporter...
A very sad fact is that over the October month in 2017, there were 18, mainly Dutch named farmers killed in South Africa.
This is from Thierry Baudet's Twitter account, a Dutch politician, writer and historicus and one of the FEW that speak out on behalf of those murdered!

Aantal moorden op blanke boeren stijgt: over het waarom is Zuid-Afrika verdeeld from a 2017 Dutch Volkskrant article.
Murder rate on white farmers rises: about why - South Africa is divided.
Screenshot above is translated segment of the above Dutch Volkskrant article, by Safari, into English.
Husband Pieter and I have lived and worked in Indonesia and there, I also followed the entire trial of Winnie Madikizela Mandela and that was most shocking!
Doubt if the liberal MSM did show all that to the western world as well.
This was in Bahasa Indonesia, not easy but I did manage. That's how you really LEARN!
How people have suffered and how things get covered up.
Both of the Mandelas have blood on their hands!
Early on Nelson Mandela was singing about killing whites click for video.
Jacob Zuma sings "Kill the Boer" at ANC Centenery Celebrations in Bloemfontein, South Africa click for video.
"Saint" Mandela? Not So Fast! click for story. Chilling video footage above, of Mandela singing the ANC/MK genocide song about killing whites is NOT a saint-like image...
Those Mandela/Zuma genocide endorsements have caused already thousands of deaths.
 South Africa: Where Corruption, Rape and Murder Are Normal... is what Mandela/Zuma and their ANC have yielded!
THE GRUESOME REALITY OF RACIST SOUTH AFRICA
KILL THE BOERE!!!
KILL THE FARMER
Leftist silence on the genocidal race hatred of the Marxist government they once supported.
The international community looked away, satisfied that justice had prevailed. They continue to look away, even as South Africa has degenerated into another racist pit, best described by an Afrikaner farm owner: "It's politically correct to kill whites these days."
While we lived and worked in Indonesia in the 1990s, we so many times have listened to the Dutch World Radio and the horror stories of those Dutch Farmers in South Africa, and some British too.
Helping each other out by using radio to signal that they need help when being attacked and often brutally murdered.
And the world remained SILENT and still!
Some brave people do blog about these barbaric atrocities, to let the world know.
NO MSM is ever covering this!!!
Yes, it breaks our hearts knowing how this once so beautiful country is going down after more than 350 years.

NOT FOR SENSITIVE VIEWERS.

Part XVI - Zulu Beaded Knobkerrie and Other Gifts from S.A.

In Part XIII, I've mentioned that I went with Patricia shopping in Stellenbosch on Monday, November 25, 1985. That yielded a 3-cups French Melior cafetière; a Zulu knobkerrie and a tiny Zulu spoon; a wooden Dachshund for in my type tray; a leather P keyring for my Dad and that's it. 
So here I want to show you those little treasures.
They are all lined up against the received book, a gift that I got earlier at the Congress.
Starting out with the little French Melior Cafetière, I will show them to you one by one.
This 3 cups Melior cafetière I purchased for South African Rand 43.40 or US $ 16.51
100 US $ were R 262.81 and the Rand was equal to the Dutch Guilder at the time.
Melior, Made in France
Made for 3 cups. Well, be aware that is the French demitasse size - not American coffee mug sizes!
We already had the larger 8 cups and this was perfect for making smaller portions of coffee and easy to handle inside our luggage!
Tried to clean this Rhodium plate Melior but it did not work... Pardon the look!
Melior instructions in French, English, German and Spanish.
This 3 cups cafetière I always grab for making the strong coffee that I use for making Tiramisu.
Always perfect coffee, never BITTER!
Okay, now we're awake so lets continue...
It was not yet 3 months ago that I'd lost my beloved miniature Dachshund Mauzie girl...
So home came this wooden Mauzie for in my type tray!
The tail is missing and over the years I have no idea how that happened.
It travelled home with us from Stellenbosch, South Africa, than moved to Pennsylvania and across the Ocean to Italy and back again across the Ocean to Georgia. Quite a journey for a lot of fragile objects!
The bottom of this wooden Mauzie is signed F.B. 
The Zulu beaded spoon is behind it...
Here you see the small wooden Zulu spoon with beaded end and loop for hanging.
Behind it lays the Zulu Knobkerrie carved from wood and entirely beaded with a loop for hanging. 
I only paid US $ 9.22 for these beaded wooden gifts.
Don't you love those bright colors of the meticulous beading?
This small spoon has a beaded loop for hanging.
One only has to admire this perfect Zulu beading work on the handle of the larger wooden Knobkerrie.
Showing the beading work more towards the end.
Such a Knobkerrie is a primitive weapon!
Such were our little gifts. Not much but considering our very limited budget, it meant a lot to us.
Don't have a picture of the leather Key Holder with letter P embossed that we got for my Dad.
~
Having been invited to the Congress and getting travel and hotels paid for was to us an enormous reward in itself for seeing this beautiful country!
Many thanks to our Mushroom Friends from South Africa - we forever keep these fond memories with us.
It was only on Friday, April 26 of 1985 that we got our mortgage for the house in Dublin, Georgia.
Quite a while after we arrived here on August 29, 1983...
Because husband Pieter's ex did NOT sign any papers, we could not get married right away.
That also delayed our Green Card application etc. etc.
Campbell Soup did buy the house and let us live there which was very generous!
For our marriage we had to fly back to The Netherlands 2.5 months later...
Slowly the entire process started and it took over one year before husband Pieter received his FIRST pay check! 
Campbell's did not want to employ anyone without a green card...
We lived from the saving money we had; very, very frugal!
Pieter did leave his ex the entire house, including furniture + a new car.
He was just too happy for having found TRUE LOVE and the opportunity of starting all over again.
That's what we did, not easy but we proudly look back on our accomplishments.
Oh, the mortgage was at 12.5 % interest and set for 15 years, written at the bottom of my leather agenda in above photo, under April 26.
Pieter also very generously has paid his ex, alimony over 32 years of time and the study costs for his adopted daughter (she was the daughter of his ex's 1st cousin) for the Dutch Royal Academy. 
Needless to say that we never could deduct a single penny for all those expenses as it was used for pay outside of the U.S.A.
Both of us had to live off less than half of his salary, minus payment for the mortgage and for my little Ford Escort...

BACK TO BASICS and living a content but simple life!

Thank you for your visits and comments on these series about South Africa.

Part XV - Flora from South Africa

As much as we love the country we travel to, both husband Pieter and I do love nature!
So whenever we have a chance, we admire the flowers and things of natural beauty.
Beautiful Proteas in the garden... Africa's famous export flower!
En route to the mushroom farm in Tongaat KwaZulu-Natal the road was lined with Canna lilies and also you can see the blooming Flamboyant trees with their red blossoms.
Flamboyant tree loaded with blossoms.
Guess this one was near the mushroom farm...
Kaffirboom S. Africa Erythrina caffra Coral Tree
Aloe Candelabra S. Africa that we saw near Joburg where we also saw Baboons eat... near a huge dam.
Guess Pieter tried to capture the Weaver bird's nest but also a Bougainvillea is seen here.
Post card with flowering gums in the foreground
Bouquet of Proteas on a post card
Protea from a slide we bought, there are so many varieties
GIANT PROTEA S. Africa Protea Cynaroides specimen
CAPE ERICA S. Africa Ericaceae
ROYAL PAINTBRUSH S. Africa

Thank you for your visit to this South Africa Flora post.
Stay tuned for the next Part XVI where I show the special little gifts I brought back home...
