To truly understand the heart of the ANC one only needs to understand that until 1985 coloureds, Indians and whites were racially excluded from being members of the ANC's National Executive Committee. The ANC was founded on the same racial discrimination it claims to oppose. No party can escape its DNA as Zindzi Mandela reminds us.

History of the ANC - research the conference at Kabwe in 1985. If you want a press source then there are numerous: try this one from TimesLive: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.ti...c-to-history-as-popularity-replaces-ideology/

But, in fact, whites, Indians and coloureds could not be members of the ANC until its historic conference in Morogoro, Tanzania, in 1969. It was a partial concession because these groups were still not eligible to be elected to the national executive committee.

However, that decision provoked a hostile reaction from the Africanist faction that ultimately led to the expulsion of the so-called Group of Eight from the organisation in 1975.

It was only in Kabwe in 1985, five years before the ANC was unbanned by FW de Klerk, that full membership was granted to all.

Quoted for posterity. Never knew this.

The hate for white people is growing more and more, and there is apparently nothing wrong with this....


Makes one worry for the future
Get out if you can.

I can't, so the only thing I can do is not bring a child in to this hateful cuntry.

It's actually irrelevant, regardless, we all know what the Apartheid system was about. She's just deflecting from her own party's failures. Just a pity the majority of the country suffering under ANC rule don't get to read her rantings about living it up in Europe. Not even Chris Barnard's "gardiner's" family.
its very relevant
racist drivel aside, she has managed to publicly embarrass our president with her breathtaking stupidity.
our country & barnard enjoy global recognition for successfully carrying out the 1st heart transplant.

she has managed to illustrate to the world just how unsuitable she is to be appointed as a representative our country

AfriForum wants Zindzi Mandela dismissed as ambassador for ‘racist’ tweets

Minority rights lobby group AfriForum has released a statement calling on Minister of International Relations, Naledi Pandor, to dismiss South Africa’s ambassador to Denmark, Zindzi Mandela, following the series of #OurLand tweets that got her trending on Twitter over the weekend.

AfriForum described the tweets as “extremely divisive” and racist” in an Afrikaans statement, calling for Mandela to be recalled.

The lobby group’s deputy CEO, Alana Bailey, said “an ambassador’s duty is to represent all the inhabitants of the country who designate him or her, to promote their interests without favour or prejudice and to be an advocate for all. In addition, he or she must convey the image of a healthy and united country to win the confidence of political partners and investors.”

“With her Twitter messages, Mandela has demonstrated a hateful attitude towards white people in the country and publicly contributed to the division of local communities,” Bailey continued.

“Her false claims and humiliating descriptions of white South Africans as ‘cowards’ and ‘land thieves’ contribute to a dangerous discourse that creates scapegoats.

“Her defense – that she is entitled to her personal opinion – shows a complete lack of insight into the responsibilities of her post.

The statement also asks “whose interests” Mandela represents and “how much work will be needed” to undo the “reputational damage” she has caused.

Bailey feels that the country has suffered due to the stances on human rights issues taken by diplomats in recent years. She expressed a hope in the statement that Pandor will be able to undo reputational damage she believes was caused by these diplomats, adding that the way Pandor “handles ambassador Mandela” will determine whether or not this “hope is justified”.

I honestly don't think the president of the ANC is much embarrassed.
