Secret internal body inspections of children, teens and young adults under general anesthesia -- Knut Holt, Fri, 17 Mar 2017, 13:10:20 (

Memories of the things told about here can often pop up as flashbacks or in dreams and be misinterpreted as attacks by spirits, as alien abduction or as sexual abuse by parents or near persons.

Secret Medical Exams in Young People Under General Anesthesia

By Knut Holt

In some societies in America, Europe and other parts of the World, young persons are frequently examined in a secretive way with endoscopic techniques through body openings when they are under general anesthesia for some other non-secret purpose, like tonsillectomy, small plastic surgeries or dental work. Often the secret exam is the main reason for putting the person to sleep, and the other procedure is conveniently done as a pretence only.
Occationally you can read in media about young women secretly being used as training objects for gynecological procedures when they are under anesthesia for some other reason. But the practice of doing secret medical exams and procedures on persons that are under anesthesia for other primary reasons, or for pretended primary reasons, seems to be much wider than just these occurences sometimes getting headlines in newspapers. This seems to occur especially on children of both sexes and adults up to the age of 25.

The conclusions expressed in this article have been obtained after collection of many testimonials from people in various parts of North America and Europe, and by comparing these testimonials. It explains several disturbing patterns that young persons frequently experience at hospitals and health centers, that it is difficult to explain otherwise.

In several societies young people put under anesthesia for some common procedures are often secretly examined in other parts of the body than those where the main procedure is taking place. This most often happens with children and young people up to the age of 25. Such extra secret examinations are most often directed to the pelvic area and stomach region, and they are most often done when the person is under general anesthesia for a procedure in the upper body, like tonsillectomy, dental work, small plastic surgeries, wisdom teeth removal and eartube insertion.

Often the secret examinations seem to be the main purpose of bringing the young person under anesthesia, and the non-secret procedure is arranged mainly to have a pretence to put the young person to sleep. In the same societies there is a growing tendency to use general anesthesia for procedures on young persons when discomfort and pain can as easily or more easily be avoided with simpler methods, probably because deep anesthesia makes it more easy to perform additional exams or procedures without the patient knowing about it.

The patient is usually told nothing about these extra procedures. Sometimes the parents are aware of the things been done and have agreed to it, but more often the procedure is held secret to both the young person and the parents. When the patient ask about the reason for symptoms caused by such secret ordeals, they are usually given some dummy explanation that sounds unreal, or the staff admits to a small part of the secret ordeal, but not the whole of it.


Usually more than one secret procedures are performed under the same session. The most common procedures seem to be:

- Inspection of the urethra, bladder and sometimes the channels up into the kidneys with an optical scope.

- Endoscopic inspection of the vagina and sometimes the inside of the uterus in girls and young women.

- Inspection of the vagina using a speculum.

- Endoscopic examination of the anus, lower colon or entire colon.

- Inspection of the abdominal cavity through an opening made in the navel or just under the navel.

- External ultrasound exam of the lower stomach and the genitals.

- Ultrasound exam of the pelvic region with a sond inserted into the vagina or anus.

- Examination of the upper digestive tract with an optical scope inserted through the mouth.

- Examination of the joint with ultrasound probes and x-ray imaging.

During the endoscopic inspection samples of tissue, secretion and microbial flora is commonly taken.


Generally the staff that performs these secret procedures, try to do them as cautiously as possible to avoid symptoms afterwards. But the procedures themselves or arrangements will inevitably leave some symptoms and cause some observations that indicate some untold ordeal. The most common of these are:

- The patient have to clean out the content of his stomach with laxatives or other means for procedures where this normally is not necessary.

- The young person is unexpectedly called in for some small surgery that they did not know they needed, and observes that the same happens with classmates and friends. But since the surgery usually is of a very common kind, the patient think this is something commonly needed and do not make further questions about the reason.

- Staff other than that expected to perform and help during the primary non-secret surgery are present and show their interest during the hospital stay.

- The time to wake up after the surgery is substantially longer than expected.

- When the patient wakes up he has unexpected catheters, tubes or wires going in through body openings. Often these are hastenedly taken out during the process of waking up.

- After the surgery there is pain, small injuries, bleeding or rest of lubrication in body openings that are not object for the primary surgery. Usually these symptoms are observed in the urethra, vagina or anus.

- The navel or the area just beneath is sore and plastered, as if an opening have been made there.

- There are unexpected stitch-marks or plastered areas appear on the belly, the kidney zone, the head or the chest.

- There is pain and distress in and around the shoulder joints and hip joints, as if arms and legs have been widely spread and held in a spread and stretched position a long time.

- The staff is suspiciously eager to examine other body areas than those subjected to the non-secret procedures. Most often the area of extra attention is the pelvic zone.


Often the instances requiring secret medical exams done on young persons are authorities of various kind, like child protective agencies, police, community health authorities, the school a child attends, research institutes or military authorities. Sometimes parents or guardians are those asking for the procedures to be done, and sometimes the procedure has been recommended by the family doctor or pediatrician.

The staff prefer doing the examinations under disguise of some other procedure, because they think that knowledge about these highly intimate and intrusive exams would harm the child or the parents psychologically, bring protests from the parents or the child, make stories circulate, or the knowledge could cause the staff to be accused of sexual abuse.

Actual purposes for doing such exams are:

- The patient is used for practical training in endoscopic procedures for medical students and doctors under specialization.

- Authorities perform general surveillance of the health status of the young population in the society.

- One surveils presence of specific microbes in the bodies of the young population.

- Authorities are secretly mapping evidence of sexual activities in the young population.

- Research projects are going on, especially projects regarding growth and physical development of children and adolescents.

- Health institutions harvest tissue, especially stem cells to be used for research and in treatment of other patients.

- One investigates symptoms of possible disease in a young person.

- Child protection agencies or other authorities suspect parents or other near persons to subject the child for sexual abuse, physical abuse or neglect of needs, and want to investigate without neither the parents, nor the child to know.

- Authorities secretly places electronic chips in the body of young persons to be able to follow the whereabouts and physiological parameters in the person by wireless transmission.

Some societies seem to do mandatory or recommended endocopic exams through body opening of children and teens at specific age levels as a kind of comprehensive physical screening. One prefers however not to let the young person know about it, and disguise it by doing it in the same session as some other non-secret surgery under anesthesia.

If you have experienced something like the things told about in this article, please tell about it in this poll:


ALso this poll can be used to report experiences:

In certain areas the health authorities has begun to subject children and teens to extended well-child physicals where one performs several or all of the following procedures: inspections with optical scopes through all or several body openings,ultrasound examinations of most body structures, x-ray taking of joints, EEG and EKG. The kid is often given sedation or even general anesthesia during these extended physicals to make the kid cooperative and to hinder him or her from remembering. Still the kid will remember a lot of details around the procedures and sometimes also from the procedures themselves, because anesthesia never works perfectly, and the kid will always have some symptoms afterwards that tell a lot of what has been done. This poll has the aim of investigating experiences from such ordeals.

I have made a poll to investigate these practices further. Please take the poll if you have experienced something of the kind.

The address of the poll is:


Still another poll of interest:

You can also comment at the message board of the poll:



The evidence for this information are mostly testamonials from experiencers in USA, Canada, UK, Scandinavia and Australia, all countries wich cooperate tightly politically and professionally, which implies that there is some kind of international coordination within this practice.

Secret flying surveillance vehicles powered by nuclear energy -- Knut Holt, Fri, 17 Mar 2017, 13:05:38 (

Aerial Surveillance Vehicles Powered by Nuclear Energy
By Knut Holt

<a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://www.mydeltapi.com">http://www.mydeltapi.com</a>

The great powers in the World, like USA, Russia and China, probably posses nuclearly powered aerial vehicles used for surveillance of own population, border surveillance and also intended to be used for crowd control in case of serious riots. When these are seen by people, they likely cause an UFO report.

The view expressed in this article is formed after scrutinizing a great number of UFO observations, including histories of allegedly crashed UFOs, and upon historical records of successful experiments done with nuclear jet engines in the 1960es. It may explain much of the UFO activity observed around the globe since the early 1960es.

Governments in both USA, Russia and China use aerial surveillance vehicles powered by nuclear energy, that are held aloft for long periods without any need to go to a base for fuel refill. These are mostly operated as remote controlled drones, but can occasionally be manned.

They are mostly held aloft at a very high altitudes to monitor a broad area, but sometimes directed down to specific areas for near investigation. When they are observed by people, an UFO report is likely produced. They are mostly used to watch own territory or territory of allies, both to record activities in the population and to detect penetration by foreign powers.

The vehicles are probably not intended to be used as regular military combat units, since the technology is poorly fit for that purpose. They may however be fit with tools for crowd controle, and some are probably equipped to strike down extreme occurrences of domestic riots. Report of people being paralyzed or even hurt by light beams, humming sounds and various kind of power fields from UFOs might originate from these tools being tested on samples of the population.

The nuclear propulsion system does not need frequent refill of tanked fuel, and therefore the vehicles can be held aloft for long periods. The propulsion system has the capacity to give a powerful thrust and thus make the vehicles capable of moving quickly from place to place.

The nuclear propulsion can be constructed in several ways. One way is by a central nuclear reactor connected to generators of electric power. The electricity will then be used to drive fans of various kind for propulsion.

Another way is a nuclear reactor that is warming up some fluid medium to a high temperature, most probably liquid metal. The fluid medium is circulated between the reactor and jet motors using the heat from the medium as energy source.

A third way are jet engines driven by nuclear fission processes inside the engine itself.

A problem with the construction of such vehicles is the need to shield for the radiation made by the nuclear processes. This problems are mostly overcome by hiding the reactors or nuclear jet engines inside heavy structures that also serve as the central architectural structures of the vehicle itself.

By using architectural structures as shielding, the radiation from nuclear processes can be shielded off without adding much extra weight to the vehicle. Weight will also be spared because fuel tanks and combustion fuel are avoided.

The propulsion system is mostly hided inside the body of the vehicle and these vehicles are mostly constructed to be able to take-off and land vertically (VTOL). The vehicles mostly have a shape like a triangle, a flying wing, an ovoid shape or a disc-like shape, which are the shapes typically associated with UFOs. One mostly chooses such shapes because they make it easy to construct the shielding for radiation and provide VTOL capabilities.

Since there is no combustion processes taking place in these vehicles, they will not eject any flames or emit much light when operated at low speeds. The jet engines or exhaust air used to cool the reactor will however glow faintly because of the temperature in the exhausted air. The glow is usually seen at symmetrically arranged spots on the vehicle body where hot air is let out. This faint glow is easily observed in night time, but is hardly seen in daylight.

When the vehicle is operated at high speed or is accelerated, the temperature in the exhausted air will increase sharply, and parts of the vehicle will then glow brightly, and the exhausted hot air can even look like flames. The light from the hot spots can then also be reflected from great areas of the vehicle body so that the whole vehicle seems to be glowing.

Sometimes also lanterns are lit on the vehicle to warn other air traffic to avoid collision, or the vehicle emits spotlight for observational purposes. All these variable glow and light pattern are also a typical part of UFO reports.

All technologies will fail sometimes, and when thi type of vehicles fail, one can in most cases expect them to descend to a low altitude and then cautiously fly back to the base, but in an erratic manner. In more severe cases one can expect them to crash or even burn up or explode in the air. Due to the content with highly radioactive material and very warm molten substances, one can expect the wreckage to be hot and be glowing a long time afterwards.

One can also expect special military units, to immediately detect the incidence. Then they will typically follow the vehicle back to the base in a helicopter, if it can still fly. If the vehicle cannot fly any more, or is totally wrecked, one can expect the military units to immediately hurry to the place, fence off the area from the public, gather the remains and tidy up the place.

However, as the technology improves, one can expect these incidents to be steadily more seldome. There are several reports on UFO incidents of exactly this kind, connected to exactly this type of behaviour from military units. But as the time has passed, these incinents have got rather rare, just as one can exopect with a stedily improved technology.

There are a few reports about wreckage materials recovered by sivillians and sent to analysis in laboratories. What has come forth from these analyses, is that the material were state of the art metallic alloys that did not point to any extraterrestrial origine. The properties of UFO incidents are therefor a strong indication of the existance of nuclearly powered surveillance vehicles owned by governments.

Then it is highly probable you have seen a secret surveillance drone or possibly a secret manned aereal vehicle whith an exotic shape, and posibly propelled by nuclear power or some more exotic principles. These vehicles are products of black projects which actually spend a great deal of the defence budget in USA and allied countries.

If you read old and recent UFO testamonials, you cclearly will see that the UFOs have gone through a stylish and technological development. The early UFOs looked like contraptions from the 1940es, while recent UFOs loook and behave like modern hypersoni vehicles in all means. This is a clear indication that they are made here on earth by black projects. Some of the technology also seems to have a beginning in Germany before WW2, and especially the exotic propelling mechanisms some of them seem to use. These exotic principles do not seem to be complicated in principle, but they require advanced control mechanisms to be exploited in its full extent, and this is the aspect that really seems to have evolved throughout the years

Thanks for the information Terry.

I can't speak to the organization.
However Mrs. Rule, as I understand it, was an outstanding administrator who ran a tight ship and cared deeply for her charges...in fact, if it was wasn't for her kindness and care, my parents would have been forcibly separated by Greek authorities,as it was their preferred method of ethnic destruction/cleansing of Macedonian's, and likely never to be rejoined...in effect, my family would not exist... Mrs. Rule chose to be proactive and an outstanding human being, not to mention being my Godmother, and for that we owe her and her descendants our eternal gratitude.

It is for this reason that I am trying to locate them. If you happen to have any information that may helpful, I will surely be appreciative of obtaining it.

"The Programme to Combat Racism was a political programme of the World Council of Churches during the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. It funded a number of liberation movements while those groups were involved in violent struggle, including UNITA and the MPLA in Angola; FRELIMO in Mozambique; SWAPO in South West Africa/Namibia; the Patriotic Front in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe; and the ANC and Pan Africanist Congress in South Africa. According to Rachel Tingle, between 1979 and 1991 the PCR gave a total of $9,749,500 to such groups.

[1]In 1970, Reader's Digest suggested that the PCR was contributing to fourteen groups involved in revolutionary guerrilla activities, some of which were Communist in ideology and receiving arms from the Soviet Union.

[2]In 1977 "The Fraudulent Gospel"[3] was published in the USA and Britain and carried a graphic photo on the front cover of 27 Black Rhodesians it said were "massacred by WCC-financed terrorists in Eastern Rhodesia in December 1976".

Donating $85,000 to the Patriotic Front of Zimbabwe (ZANU) in 1978, months after the group shot down an airliner, killing 38 of the 56 passengers on board. Members are reported to have killed 10 survivors (this was denied by the Front).[4]

This caused much controversy in the past among member churches. A Time Magazine article had the title "Going Beyond Charity: Should Christian cash be given to terrorists?”.[5] Further examination of WCC's political programme appeared in Amsterdam to Nairobi - The World Council of Churches and the Third World by Ernest W. Lefever.[6]

The Programme to Combat Racism was changed and concerns addressed through the “Special Commission[citation needed]

Further criticism was also been cited by the Christian right. In the U.S., important elements in such WCC member groups as the United Methodist Church, the United Church of Christ and the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese were upset.[citation needed]"

GWELO DAYS -- TerryK, Fri, 15 Jul 2016, 12:44:35 (105-228-38-28.north.dsl.telkomsa.net/

Yo Jo Pete - safe my Gwelo Mate. One of the greatest disappointments of my early childhood was being driven to Lower Gwelo and finding out that there was no town / village / garage / swimming pool there !!!

Unlikely to be in Joburg for a while - about to return to the UK for what remains of the summer (!!!) following the arrival of first grandson on 23 July - he is at risk of having Brexit as one of his names.

I remain without a clear opinion on the outcome of the vote - how can you change fundamental systems of governance on such a narrow margin. Even my local sailing club requires a 2/3 majority for changes to the constitution. So little real information was available and so many lies were told. The biggest plus for the new direction will be if the EU financial systems crash - and Italy is not far off.

I fancy Theresa May and many of her first appointments. No hassle about her being female - lets face it so many of the current crop of male leaders have screwed up. Boris remains an enigma to me - is there real intelligence under his brash / stupid facade ??? The next circus could be the USA if Trump gets his hands on it.

Keep the coms flowing. Perhaps your posting will raise Ray from his slumbers.

The recent snow in Gwelo wasn't snow and wasn't in Gwelo. It was a form of sleet and fell in a very localised ans small area 47 Km NW of Gwelo in the former Lower Gwelo,in the Insukamini District. I know the area well as I built a dam there in 1988/89. This fall was the subject of much photoshopping and various other misinformation but I checked with Zim Met website.
Much entertainment on TV. Topping the list are the Merc F1 team taKING EAch other out and the resurgence of my favourite moffie,Valentino Rossi.
At the mo the Open has my full attention. Brexit is of passing interest as normal service will soon resume. Not too sure about having punda as PM though.
Seems that normal service is s,lowly resuming in Zim. My daughters seem unaffected and unphased by recent revolting natives. I look forward to a visit from the younger one in a few weeks.

"All Rhodesia ... ready to do its duty" -- Bob, Mon, 11 Jul 2016, 23:37:20 (NoHost/

The original King's Royal Rifle Corps Rhodesian Platoon, pictured at Sheerness, England in November 1914. Third and fourth from the right in the second row sit the commanding officer, Captain J B Brady, and the Marquess of Winchester, who informally sponsored the unit. The majority of the men pictured here were killed in action, and most of the rest were discharged because of serious wounds.[1]

When the United Kingdom declared war on Germany at the start of World War I in August 1914, settler society in Southern Rhodesia,[n 1] then administered by the British South Africa Company, received the news with great patriotic enthusiasm. The Company administrator, Sir William Milton, wired the UK government, "All Rhodesia ... ready to do its duty".[2] Although it supported Britain, the Company was concerned about the possible financial implications for its chartered territory should it make direct commitments to the war effort, particularly at first, so most of the colony's contribution to the war was made by Southern Rhodesians individually—not only those who volunteered to fight abroad, but also those who remained at home and raised funds to donate food, equipment and other supplies.

I know this site is looking abandoned but gees it is a crying shame when you look at the scarce comments, it appears everyone has been laid to rest.

I know it's old news but regards the snow they had in Gwelo,some of us may know that the RBC said that the last time it was recorded was in about 1914. If you were at GFS you heard about it. Some think it is the first time it has ever snowed, maybe they do and it is a sign from above and there is nothing they can do about it !

from Rhodesians worldwide facebook..

One day a little boy woke up and sat down at the table expecting breakfast. However, his mother says, "You don't get any breakfast until you do your chores."
A little pissed off, the boy goes out to do his chores. When he goes to milk the cow, he kicks it. When he goes to get eggs he kicks a chicken, and when he goes to feed the pigs, he kicks a pig.
When the little boy sits down his mother gives him a bowl of dry cereal. "Where is the bacon, eggs and milk?" asks the little boy. His mother replies, "I saw you kick the cow, so you don't get any milk; I saw you kick a chicken so you don't get eggs; and I saw you kick a pig so you don't get any bacon!"
Just as she finishes saying this, the boy's father comes down the stairs and kicks the cat. The little boy looks up at his mother and asks, "Do you want to tell him, or should I?"

The scientific basis of the vitamin C is it is the normal and natural infection fighter for the body. Vitamin C upregulates hydrogen peroxide production by the white blood cell increasing its killer ability. The white blood cell engulfs the foreign body and bathes it in peroxide. The greater the infection the more peroxide is needed by the cell and the more vitamin C is needed. Vitamin C has been removed from our diet by
1. The pasteurization of milk.
2. The cooking of flesh. Raw flesh contains C.
3. The pasteurization of all fruit juice by the markets.
4. The selling of fruit and vegetables in the market many days after picking. Vitamin C content starts to decline after picking.

Also what aggravates the system is that sugar and carbs in the form of glucose down regulates the production of peroxide by the white blood cell. The net result is that our immune systems are only functioning at 50% or less of capability. This results in severe flu attacks,abscesses, osteoporosis and fragile bones because vitamin C strengthens bones.

Quite right Ray. I think my wording was a bit misleading. Scrubbing up is important. Fighting off tooth ache while on an overseas holiday is the pits, the last thing you want to do is spend your hard earned holiday money on a dental bill in another country.

The insurers will pay for luggage etc but a dentist bill is another issue if you are in Italy, Fiji and of course Zims. I dosed up on Vitamin C until I came back from the holiday to deal with it. It worked well more than once. I think being run down due to 17 hr flights doesn't help either. I blame it on the barley sugar sweets they give you before landing !

Johnny B, the last thing you want to do is to have a root canal if you get an abcess.
Reason one. Root canal kills the root in the tooth leaving you with a dead tooth that will eventually fall out.
Reason 2. it is Dentist welfare, he gets about $1000 for it.

An abcess is a very serious situation and can be fatal don't get me wrong I am only too acutely aware of the situation.
But dental treatment is designed to enrich the dentist, root canals,($1000) antibiotics and a crown ($1000) which only lasts five years at best than the eventually an implant which costs $2000 to $4000, giving the dentist nice vacations so that he can hunt lions in Africa.

Here is what I do and I have pulled it off in may cases. Get the hardest tooth brush you can get and brush your teeth and gums thoroughly every morning, dont worry if you spit blood good sign it means you have thoroughly flushed and bled out the tooth gum interface to remove all toxins or infection. Toothpaste is junk, it only enriches cosmetic companies. If you get an abcess then it is all out war, like 10,000 to 20,000 mg of vitamin C powder, neutralized with baking soda, every four hours. Put a cotton swab soaked in vitamin C directly on the inside swollen gum area for 5 to 10 minutes.
This is hitting it from both sides internally and externally. Keep it up do not quit when the swelling goes down, keep it up for maybe another week or until all sensation of pain is gone when you press the gum. There may be some residual pain if root or bone is damaged this may take a month or more to go away, but it is only necessary to do the megadose treatment up to a week after swelling subsistence. If the swelling gets worse or serious like severely swollen cheeks then it means you are too low with the dosage and then you will just have to go to the emergency room and go through the established procedures and fork up the money.

Vitamin C -- johnny b (fact not fiction), Mon, 29 Feb 2016, 15:43:38 (CPE-1-123-142-2.sml9.way.bigpond.net.au/

I'm not Ray, but have observed that a double dose of Vit C does work within 24hours. I have found it prevents the progress of tooth ache, but gum disease can't be prevented if the teeth are not looked after externally also ie Brushing, flossing for the removal of plaque and food residue. To be effective both go hand in hand twice a day or after meals. A good rinse with spirits (neat Brandy/Gin/Vodka) after all that also helps(in moderation) Otherwise a gargle with Listerine will have to do !! I'm sure one or the other is available, your choice !

I first heard Chippy on our houseboy's sauce pan radio; radio was actually built into an actual sauce pan!

Some persons at Oxford college have more time on their hands than they know what do to with. When I was at Pretoria University, (now affiliated with European Union) the course work was so rigorous and demanding,and you actually had to learn stuff. No time for agendas. However, this appears to be not so at Oxford College.

Criticism of Rhodesia -- Eugene, Thu, 31 Dec 2015, 4:14:05 (C-210-10-130-246.can.connect.net.au/

Below is my response to a Huffington post article. Am I in the ball park or completely off reservation???

Hi Nick,
I just read your article on Dylann Storm Roof and the fact he wore a Rhodesian flag.
<a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/2015/06/18/dylann-roof-rhodesian-flag_n_7616752.html?ir=Australia">http://www.huffingtonpost.com.au/2015/06/18/dylann-roof-rhodesian-flag_n_7616752.html?ir=Australia</a>

His view of Rhodesia and yours is based solely on a one eyed view of racism.
I was born in Rhodesia. I left there when I was four years old so dont remember anything other than looking for Easter eggs in my grand parents garden and being taught to whistle before I could talk by my families gardener.
I have done a lot of reading and research on Rhodesia though and obviously have had many discussions with Rhodesian's. I currently live in Australia which was a favorite place for Rhodesians who fled the country. I will soon be moving to South America.

Your article was partially accurate. Of course it also carried the same bias just about every article on Rhodesia does. Always the race card but with no depth or thoughtfulness and always a censored account of the facts.

The civil war was white and black against (communist) black. This civil war took place in the height of the cold war. Every organization that fought against the white minority government was either marxist or communist. Same thing.
75% of the Rhodesian army was black.
Every former colony that converted to black majority rule ended up with a Marxist dictatorship (today that includes Zimbabwe and South Africa- just wait for the ANC to lose an election and watch what happens to the democratic South Africa).
Rhodesians made the decision they were not going to put up with that and believed they were on the Wests side during the cold war. As you mentioned they instead became a pariah state.
I believe this had more to do with the White Rhodesian people wanting their own self determination from the Crown and the inner temple of the City of London than the race issue.

You quoted the economist obituary of Ian Smith saying there 'were no hero's and no romance about Mr Smith's Rhodesia'.
That is far from true until the global sanctions finally took effect and the international support for the terror groups killing farmers increased.
Then it was game over for Rhodesia and a green light for Mugabe and what he's done to the country in the last quarter of a century.

There were a lot of medals handed out during the war.
Rhodesia perfected counter terrorism with the Selous Scouts. They actually caught and turned terrorists to join the Rhodesian
Selous Scouts. Sometimes the guns were returned to the former terrorists within an hour, in the battle field and they would fight together.
Rhodesia also carried out some of the most daring raids across its borders against the terror training camps in Zambia and Mozambique. Small numbers of Rhodesians, often Selous Scouts impersonating soldiers of various terror groups (mostly blacks with the whites blackening their faces and hands to blend in) would infiltrate and attack these camps with great effect.
These camps were/are often referred to as refugee camps.
However there are so many photos showing the military training of the residents and also captured marxist propoganda and weapons after these raids. Towards the end of the war there were also Russian military advisers present.

The marxist terrorists weren't interested in fighting the army for the most part. They sought out white civilians in isolated areas and killed them or set booby traps and mines on their properties. This changed towards the end of the war when the COMMUNIST Soviet Union, China, North Korea and their other allies (the US, Britain, Australia, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, etc) increased their support for Zanu and Zipra. The 2 marxist terror/political groups fighting for black majority rule.

Prior to declaring independence Rhodesia had a thriving economy. Health care and education was available. Obviously the standard that whites could afford was better. The country could feed itself and export extra produce. Today it relies on food aid. Standards of health care and education have declined despite a quarter century of human evolution and progress.
The left wing, progressive do-gooders should congratulate themselves on the Zimbabwean achievements they brought about by ending what was once called Rhodesia.

There was only one side who tried to install a power sharing government. You referenced in your article the word 'share' twice. Ian Smith attempted to do exactly that. It was rejected by Britain the former colonial master. They insisted one man one vote. That can only mean a Zanu or Zipra government.
Rhodesia got a Zanu government headed by Robert Mugabe.

Wouldnt it have been nice if you had mentioned Robert Mugabe! But for some reason when people write about 'Rhodesia' they limit or edit the discussion to white supremacy.
When Robert Mugabe took over Rhodesia and renamed it Zimbabwe he followed in Stalins foot steps and purged any black he thought could threaten him. Big bad Bob was from the Shona tribe. Which was the largest tribe so the purge was mainly towards the smaller tribe the Matabele. The Matabele would call that racism but you either dont know or choose not to discuss this fact.

You quoted a number of 30,000 people being killed. Mostly black. Big bad Bob killed at least 30,000 people in his purge. No one really knows how many but 30,000 - 50,000 is considered by most as a minimum.
You didnt mention that because it didnt fit into your Rhodesia race paradigm.

Some black Zimbabweans had a wonderful time during 'Operation take out the trash' where Big bad Bob demolished the homes of people he believed didnt support him.

I wonder if a referendum was held today between having a white minority government and Big bad Bob's government who the majority would choose? I know which one I would choose. Out of interest......... if you lived in Zimbabwe and had to choose. Which one would you choose to raise your family?

Is it possible you are a hypocrite judging from the safety of your arm chair in a well developed and educated country?

I guess a brief mention of South Africa is appropriate. 1 white person murdered every 36 hours because they are white. You can go on you-tube and watch the worlds darling - Communist Nelson Mandela singing and dancing to the song 'Kill a Boer' with other ANC members.
The ANC's South Africa's achievements........... murder capital of the world, highest HIV/Aids infection in the world and the rape capital of the world. They even invented the term 'baby rape'. South Africa used to run commercials on TV for rapists to wear condoms to reduce the spread of Aids.

Here is a link to a TV reporter and crew being mugged on live TV.
<a rel=nofollow target=_blank href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWLPBOWY4k4">https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LWLPBOWY4k4</a>

This is the cost of black majority rule in Zimbabwe and South Africa.
Thank God my parents left that hell hole called Africa!

Removing Rhodes statue 'moral vanity', says Tony Abbott -- Tony, Thu, 24 Dec 2015, 7:05:19 (NoHost/

"The university and its students should prefer improving today's orthodoxies to imposing them on our forebears," Mr Abbott told the Independent newspaper.
"The university should remember that its mission is not to reflect fashion but to seek truth and that means striving to understand before rushing to judge."
Mr Abbott said that while Rhodes himself had not campaigned against racism, many of the scholars who benefited from his legacy had done so.
"We can lament that he failed to oppose unjust features of his society while still celebrating the genius that led to the creation of the Rhodes Scholarships."

In a sentence in this report namely:
"China receives greater access to African markets and resources in return for its assistance,"

Read it as: "we Chinks will build better roads and facilities so that we can carry away all your oil, diamonds and gold.
However do not dare point out that this is what the Western Colonists did. That would be anti-colonialism, and the Chinese do not even want such things mentioned or somebody might put two and two together. Perish the thought. Oh yes and I forgot, the rhino horns and elephant tusks can be

China aims to counter western influence in Africa -- Bob, Mon, 07 Dec 2015, 3:47:43 (NoHost/


China aims to counter western influence in Africa
€55bn Chinese investment in the continent, announced at Pretoria summit, will come with definite policy strings attached

about 3 hours ago
Bill Corcoran
in Cape Town


Western hegemony of African economies looks set to be further reduced in the decades ahead following a weekend announcement that China will assist the continent’s future development – to the tune of $60 billion (€55 billion) – through 10 priority programmes.
The unprecedented development partnership was unveiled at the China-Africa summit in Johannesburg by Chinese president Xi Jinping. It was welcomed by his South African counterpart, Jacob Zuma, who said the continent fully supported this higher level of engagement.
“This is a significant amount,” said Zuma at the close of the Forum on China- Africa Cooperation (Focac) summit. “It clearly illustrates China’s commitment to ensure that China’s development takes place in conjunction with the developing countries of the south‚ particularly those in Africa.”

From Rhodesians Facebook:

Free Sex When You Fill Up With Gas
A petrol station owner in Dublin was trying to increase his sales, so he put up a sign that read, 'Free Sex with Every Fill-Up.'
Paddy pulled in, filled his tank and asked for his free sex.
The owner told him to pick a number from 1 to 10 and said that if he guessed correctly, he would get his free sex.
Paddy guessed 8, and the proprietor said, 'You were very close, the lucky number was 7.
Sorry. No sex this time.'
A week later, Paddy, with his friend Mick, pulled in for another fill-up.
Again Paddy asked for his free sex.
The proprietor again gave him the same story, and asked him to guess the correct number.
Paddy guessed 2.
The proprietor said, 'Sorry, it was 3, you were very close but no free sex this time.'
As they were driving away, Mick said to Paddy,
'I think that game is rigged and he doesn't really give away free sex at all.'
Paddy replied, 'No it's genuine enough Mick. My wife won twice last week.'

Did not like that school with teachers dressed in black robes hiding a cane amongst the robes ready to use it if you just looked left or right. Fortunately he never dared to bring a guitar to the playground then we would never have heard about a John Edmond.

Rhodesian music 60s/70s -- D Kenrick, Sun, 22 Nov 2015, 20:43:25 (NoHost/

Dear All,

I am currently doing some research into music in Rhodesia in the '60s and '70s and wondered if you could help me. I am looking in particular at the songs of Clem Tholet and John Edmond.

I had a few questions relating to these songs:

1. Were they part of a 'Rhodesian music scene' of country/folk artists?

2. How popular would you say these musicians were?

3. Can anyone remember when these songs or albums were released? (As it would be great to see some reviews in The Rhodesia Herald etc.)

Finally, on a slightly related note:

4. How did you feel about the Rhodesian national anthem at the time? Did it feel like a good/suitable anthem?

If you have any thoughts on these topics please email me at david.kenrick@sjc.ox.ac.uk.

Thanks in advance for your help,

David Kenrick

Yes I recall a cash reward for a live bird in hand being offered in NZ in the 2000's but I think at the time it was for the Indian Myner bird(sp?). It takes over local bird territory.

The common English House Sparrow was a pest for a while in NZ but they suddenly died in vast numbers in the 90's and apparantly it was spread by virus through their communal sleeping habits.

johnny b, yes it a different bulbul from the red-whiskered bulbul which I have seen in Los Angeles. The interesting thing about the red vented, it was introduced into Auckland NZ and they tried to eradicate it without success on the allegation that it pecks and destroys fruit. The Government is offering $1000 to anyone that can lead to the capture of the bird. The Government is being heavily attacked on this policy, critics claiming that bounty hunters will captively breed the bird and release it and that the policy will have the opposite effect. Bulbuls are the most common garden bird in South Africa and one wonders how anyone grows fruit in South Africa, if the NZ claims are true. It also occurs in Hawaii, part of my prowling grounds, but I do not remember seeing it there.

James well then how about this one..(Rapini is a green vegetable, also called broccoli rabe).

Google Translate changed Feira do grelo (Rapini Festival) on the town of Galicia website into Feria Clítoris (Clitoris Festival) leading to some embarrassment when staff at the town hall discovered their error on Thursday.

"Google translate recognized our Galician word grelo as Portuguese and translated into the Spanish clítoris," town hall spokeswoman Monte García, explained to The Local.

"Since 1981, the festival has made the clitoris one of the star products of the local gastronomy," read the blurb on the town’s official website, extolling the region’s gastronomic goods.

"We discovered that Google translates any mention of grelos, on any website, to clitoris," García said.

(James, I am heading to Galicia right now to taste some grelos. Yum.)

I'm sure we who know him miss Jimbo terribly. The 'singing' husky would have appealed to him.

I smile every time I see a bird called Bulbul something or other. I can't spell Tagalog, but in that language 'bulbul' is their word for pubic hair! First phrase I was taught in Tagalog was, 'Ang tigre ai mai bulbul' meaning, 'My tiger has pubic hair'. Not perhaps the greatest way to start a conversation with a stranger from the Philippines.

Ray.....I still have a Roberts Birds of South Africa book printed in 1958 (foreward by JC Smuts in 1938) and a Gymnogene is a Banded Harrier Hawk. Where the Gymnogene name was derived from is a mystery because it isn't an Afrikaans word by any means. I have always called it a Gymnogene but maybe some people don't like awkward latin sounding words.

Banded Harrier Hawk is pretty descriptive,but a velcro crested hoofoo gobbler is also descriptive but not a bird!

TerryK, Don't get onto the subjects of birds with Ray, oh yeaah.. even more spectacular I have seen is a Fork-tailed drongo attacking a Gymnogene, it is a small but fearless song bird. However I have news for you. I have known the bird as a Gymnogene for 50 years of my life. However about 10-15 years ago, a drunken Irishman, by name of Ian Sinclair, who is the top seller of bird books in Africa, and has a big whiskey budget, came up with a devilish scheme. And that scheme was change the names of all the birds, making everyone's field guides redundant and compelling everybody to buy new field guides. The net result of it is that the Gymnogene no longer exists and in its place is African Harrier Hawk. What an insult to the gorgeous bird. His name was changed from Jim to Harry, without him knowing. At least the Afrikaans names still remain colorful, namely Kaalwangvalk and Kaalkopkuikendief. (Bareheaded chicken thief). And my favorite bird the Knysna Loerie, is now a freakin' Turaco.
Johnny b, my estimate that any maize brew has 4-6% alcohol at best, maybe even 3%. Nothing earth shaking. Beer sold by the big brewing companies is about 7% alcohol. Beer is a 10,000 year old super food, the yeast makes all kinds of healthy hormones, and the level of alcohol relaxes and lowers the blood pressure, and is lovely to drink in the bar while watching the Bokkies take the USA to the cleaners in the world cup. I would love to see Japan make the quarter finals and it is possible but then Samoa would have to beat Scotland and Japan would have to beat the USA with simple four point victories. Not likely but nothing is impossible. Already Samoa is practicing their Haka, and threatening Scotland with "Remember England!"

Back to beer, it is impossible to have any fermented grain or grape to have a higher alcohol content than about 13% because at this level the yeast cannot grow anymore. So all fermented beverages are healthy and post no threat to the liver. its when you distill the brews to get 40 even up to 75% alcohol and all the healthy stuff is left behind in the residue that alcohol becomes hazardous to your health.

Africa needs leaders to stem European migrant tide -- Bob, Thu, 08 Oct 2015, 7:01:24 (NoHost/

Because this is not just about the war in Syria. The migration that will fundamentally change Europe in the coming decades is the one that has already started to roll from sub-Saharan Africa. Germany’s anticipated 1.5 million asylum-seekers will be dwarfed by the legions on the move in Africa. Sub-Saharan Africa is set to more than double its population between now and 2050, from 1.1 billion to 2.4 billion. The fertility rate averages 5.2 children, compared with an average 1.6 in Europe. Thanks to improvements in public health, infant mortality is dropping. So too are the rates of HIV/Aids infection. Part of this is down to foreign aid and there is reason to be proud of that.

But aid programs, while paying lip service to the need for good governance, are actually constructed to find ways around crooked bureaucrats. That has to change. The good governance index set up by the Mo Ibrahim Foundation reported strong negative trends this week in a large proportion of the 54 tested African states. The situation is so bad that Zimbabwe, though crippled by a ruthless political class and ruled by the 91-year-old tyrant Robert Mugabe, does not even figure in the 10 worst states. Yes, it is possible (ask the people of South Sudan and Somalia) to be even more miserable than the Zimbabweans.

Seven day brew -- johnny b (African Beer), Wed, 07 Oct 2015, 0:36:18 (CPE-58-167-192-15.lns3.fli.bigpond.net.au/

That's right James, Mahewu in the latter years could be bought as a ready to mix powder which was for drinking on the job at tea break (smoko here!) it was made first thing in the morning and left to "stew" like tea for a few hours. Adding yeast and leaving it for some time I'm sure it would be a powerful drink, but there wasn't a presence of alcohol initially. We could get it from Wightmans or Farmers Co-op. I will look up that recipe Ray.

Our tobacco reapers were from the north:- Malawi and Zambia (Nyasaland and Northern Rhodesia) may very well have brought it down as a recipe with them. I don't think my folks would have allowed me to touch the stuff nor allow pissed workers to hang the mateppees in the barns if it was intoxicating ! Supposed to have health giving protien in it!! That is originally why I thought it may have been an Egyptian recipe.

The 7 day alcoholic beer was made from the local millet and Rupoko grass seed which was a grass we had growing wild in the middle veld, the expended grain husks was the masesse. We used to take half a hessian bag up to the Zambezi river for 10 days of fantastic fishing.

TerryK, I recall once at Kariba where someone just overdid the masesse and the fish were floating on the surface with bloated bellies of from the fermenting stuff

A second ferment stage was done through a crude copper pipe condenser to make Kachasu which was pretty powerful stuff and gave a clear unrefined concoction of ethyl and methyl alcohol. That is another story !!!

Johnny B, TerryK, the tilapia taste the yeast in the water, and they think there is grain, (maize or millet) in the water that is fermenting and they go crazy searching for it and find your bait.
In the USA all foods and beverages require ingredient labeling, so all tonic water sold here in the USA here is has quinine in its ingredient list.
So who should I cheer for Wednesday morning? USA or South Africa? Or both? Or maybe wear a springbok Jersey and have red white and blue face-paint?

Here is the recipe for Maheu, it is basically thin enough to drink maize porridge that has been fermented.

James - not the same but we used "masesse" (sp) - the left over millet etc from local brew ups as a ground bait for fishing. It could be tossed out by hand or even better, in a sack, to settle on the bottom near where you were fishing. We usually got good results - perhaps absorption of the residual alcohol made the fish less cautious and easier to hook !!!

Is "mahewu" what we called 'kaffir beer' in the Copperbelt
area? When fishing or hunting we'd buy a couple of buckets of the stuff from the locals - it always seemed to be available. It did indeed taste like sour porridge, but I thought it had a very mild alcohol content. I recall that we believed it was excellent if one suffered from peptic ulcer.

Founded 220 years ago, the Orange Order is a Protestant organisation which, its members say, stands for civil liberties, fraternity and faith. However in the divided society of Northern Ireland it is rarely out of the news. Many Irish Nationalists and Republicans view it as an anti-Catholic, triumphalist organisation and disputes over some contentious Orange parades have generated headlines around the world.

What is less well known is that in a tropical land three thousand miles away, there are Orange lodges made up of African men and women. Members of the Orange Order in Ghana share the same emblems and follow the same rituals as their brethren in Northern Ireland. While there may not be sectarian conflict in their homeland, the Orangemen on the Equator feel they too are misrepresented and misunderstood.

Zimbabwe to ban electric water heaters to save power -- Bob, Sun, 04 Oct 2015, 8:18:45 (NoHost/

Zimbabwe is to ban the use of electric water heaters and require all newly built properties to use solar power, as it tries to tackle big power shortages.
Energy officials say existing electric heaters - or geysers - will be phased out over the next five years.
They hope to save up to 400 megawatts of electricity - equivalent to the output of an electrical power plant.
Blackouts have dogged Zimbabwe, despite the fact that 60% of the population have no access to electricity.
This has also hampered investment in what is an already fragile economy, the BBC's Karen Allen reports.

Johnny B tonic water does contain quinine. Yes it can be used as a source. The only problem is that sugar in the tonic water works against the effects of the quinine somewhat, sugar is inflammatory whereas quinine is anti-inflammatory. The best would be to use diet tonic water but it usually costs about double that of regular tonic water, there is no reason why it should. There is no better cure for malaria than the natural active quinine despite it being disparaged by pharmaceutical manufacturers of the much inferior synthetics.

Yes Juniper berries is the base flavour for gin and grapes are not used but the facility for adding the ingredience, expertise and processing it and bottling it is what we have. We make a brandy too and ranges from 5 year old, 20 and 40 year old St. Angnes and it is superior to KWV if that is a standard to go by.

I had lunch with 2 of my unmarried friends. One is engaged, one is a mistress, and I have been married for 20+ years.
We were chatting about our relationships and decided to amaze our men by greeting them at the door wearing a black bra, stiletto heels and a mask over our eyes. We agreed to meet in a few days to exchange notes.
Here's how it all went.........
My engaged friend:
The other night when my boyfriend came over he found me with a black leather bodice, tall stilettos and a mask. He saw me and said, 'You are the woman of my dreams...I love you.' Then we made passionate love all night long.
The mistress:
Me too! The other night I met my lover at his office and I was wearing a raincoat, under it only the black bra, heels and mask over my eyes. When I opened the raincoat he didn't say a word, but he started to tremble and we had wild sex all night.
Then I had to share my story:

SLOE GIN -- TerryK, Thu, 17 Sep 2015, 9:24:43 (host86-174-168-150.range86-174.btcentralplus.com/

Morning Guys -

I make sloe gin here in Kent. It involves collecting sloe berries (very bitter) from the local hedgerows (season almost over). 3/4 fill a large bottling jar and add a bottle of good quality gin (or vodka) - must cover the berries. I leave them for a year, rotating occasionally and then decant / filter the liquid which is a deep purple at this stage. Traditional recipes specify a considerable amount of sugar but I am type 2 diabetic so make up a strong sugar solution and add the minimum amount teaspoon by teaspoon until it just turns from being bitter.

I do this last stage after taking the bottle out to Cape Town where it is a traditional treat at our Xmas dinner. I used vodka last year which was very popular but have reverted to gin this year.

For the group games only "good" seats (not behind the poles) were available at around £150. Some options were available for 1/4 finals on-wards starting at £250.
I shall be watching on ITV and DSTV !!!
I think the bokke will get motored anyway - Meyer's selections make no sense to anyone south of the Vaal and his coaching is way behind the rest of the big sides. His behavior on TV during games is infantile.
Gwelo Sports Club offered more.

Zim Sailing. -- Jo Pete, Thu, 13 Aug 2015, 10:52:37 (95-226-105-118.north.dsl.telkomsa.net/

Yo again EBT. Both daughters sail Lasers but have keelboats on Kariba. Nationals are just a shadow of their former status. This year Lasers were the only class. 14 boats. I missed the mid 70's heyday of Rhodesian sailing when Sunday club sailing on Lake Mac would attract over 100 boats. I sailed 5o5 but in the early 80's we would get 20+ boats in the nationals in our class and maybe 150 boats total. I was also chairman of the annual sailing school 6 times. My best was over 300 entries in the early 80's.
Younger daughter,Megan, came 4th in the ISAF Junior (U19) worlds in Simonstown whilst still a 16 yr old schoolgirl,representing Zim. Zim sent down a team of 4 and I was mgr/coach. When Meg was at Rhodes she was the best female Laser sailor in SA.Her sister Bron, now a 35year old matron & mother,is also a pretty useful sailor.
We were a fanatic sailing family and attended many regattas in Southern Africa and a few ISAF world championships.

Yo BT. I assume that this is Ray talking? Lubitz cannot be explained other than that he was a complete fruit cake.
The reason that MH370 was headed into the South Indian Ocean wasa) it is very isolated b) The ocean there is very deep.
It was headed towards St Paul's Island,the most isolated piece of land on earth.
I see no connection with Isis. The captain was just a Muslim,unbalanced,didn't give a shit for human life.

Yo Jo, I am so glad to see you are surviving under the difficult circumstances. Congrats on your daughters. The facts were determined by using radisthesia at which I am proficient, I plot the course on a map, you might look up the technique on google. In the 60s and 70s I gave good demonstration to farmers as to where the underground water was on their farms using the technique so to them at least my abilities are proven. Even if you disregard this, why would the pilot head the plane like a missile or flying bomb to the Southern Indian ocean where Diego Garcia, a top secret Military base is located? And how do you explain the continuation of this crap, namely the Isis/Andreas Lubitz German Airlines incident? By the way I was followed yesterday by a chappie that looked liked an Arab when I went to the courthouse. This and many other incidents. Yes Isis, Hi to you.I know you are going to read this. What you need to know that is that Mohummad never incited a Jihad to kill people. His call was for a Jihad against materialism and for Spirituality. One day you will stand in front of Allah, and you are not going to like his judgement upon you for corrupting the glorious religion that Allah handed down to Mohummad, and you turning it into hatred and murder. You will die a thousand deaths, but that is for Allah to decide.

MH 370 -- Jo Pete, Tue, 11 Aug 2015, 11:04:19 (95-226-105-118.north.dsl.telkomsa.net/

Yo again BT. MH370 needs mentioning. Ray's theor smacks a bit of conspiracyy. Either that or he's been at the whacky bakky again.
I have no doubt that the truth will never be known. In all likelyhood the aircraft had hard contact with the sea and broke up so that there is nothing really to find.
The evidence points to the following.
The captain decided to commit suicide. As he approached Vietnamese airspace he sent the 1st officer back into the cabin then locked him out of the flightdeck. Changed course 180 deg. Climbed to 45 000' de pressudrised the aircraft,whilst he was on oxygen to kill all in the cabin the flew the plane on a carefully planned route into the southern Indian Ocean. Wether this was done by him ,or autop[ilot will remain unknown but I suspect auto pilot. The plane then flew until it ran out of fuel,stalled,and plummeted at some speed into the sea.
What I'm also pretty sure of is that the Malaysian Govt and the airline are hiding some facts to limit their liability.
Only surmise can account for this tragedy.My account fits all the facts as I know them. I have spent much time following the story and cogitating the facts.
What do you okes think?

Lions save the planet -- Ray, Tue, 11 Aug 2015, 2:52:30 (NoHost/

Goodwell Nzou, come let me take you by the hand and tell you the truth, even though you may not like it. Lions are the ones that are preventing your home from being turned into a desert. Do you know what hoofed locusts are? Huh? They are all the antelopes and beasts that are chomping up all the vegetation that is preventing the rain from eroding all the topsoil, making the rivers red with mud and washing away the earth, eventually turning the land into something well, like the Sahara desert. Lions keep all these chompers under control. Lions create forest woodlands lions create a paradise. Destroy the lion and you will have all the vegetation grazed away and you will have a desert. The lion stands between desert and forest. If you don't believe me then google "How wolves changed the course of rivers" a study done when they re-introduced wolves to the land from which they were removed. The wolves prevented deer from eating up the vegetation that stopped erosion.
Lions wolves whatever, have a vital role to play on this planet. They are there for a reason. Without them we really would die.

Did Cecil live near your place in Zimbabwe?

Cecil who? I wondered. When I turned on the news and discovered that the messages were about a lion killed by an American dentist, the village boy inside me instinctively cheered: One lion fewer to menace families like mine.

Zimbabwe in major International Uproar but not over Farm Dispossessions. -- Ray, Mon, 03 Aug 2015, 15:05:18 (NoHost/

(CNN)As outrage grows over the killing of Cecil the lion, Zimbabwe has called on the United States to extradite the American dentist who shot the prized big cat.
Zimbabwe has started extradition proceedings and hopes the United States will cooperate, said Oppah Muchinguri, the African nation's environment minister.
Walter Palmer "had a well-orchestrated agenda which would tarnish the image of Zimbabwe and further strain the relationship between Zimbabwe and the U.S., Muchinguri said.

Palmer, his professional hunter guide, and the owner of the land where the hunt took place are accused of an illegal hunt under the country's Parks and Wildlife Act, Muchinguri said in a statement.
Palmer is accused of financing an illegal hunt, and he and the professional hunter are also accused of illegally using a crossbow "to conceal the illegal hunt" so they wouldn't alert rangers on patrol, she said.

The landowner allegedly allowed the hunt to be conducted without a lion quota and without the necessary permit, Muchinguri said.
"The professional hunter, client and land owner were therefore all engaged in poaching of the lion," she said.

She added, "This must be condemned in the strongest possible terms by all genuine, animal-loving conservationists who believe in sustainable utilization of natural resources."
American dentist says he regrets killing famed lion
Palmer, from Minnesota, has said he relied on the expertise of local guides "to ensure a legal hunt."

"I had no idea that the lion I took was a known, local favorite, was collared and part of a study until the end of the hunt," Palmer said in a statement Tuesday.
He allegedly paid $50,000 in early July to hunt the lion with a crossbow near Hwange National Park in western Zimbabwe.

Cecil -- a major tourist draw at Hwange -- was lured out of the park sanctuary with a dead animal on top of a vehicle, according to the Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force.
The 13-year-old lion, recognizable by the black streaks in his mane, suffered a slow death, the conservation group said.
Two Zimbabweans freed on bail in death of Cecil the lion.

A Palmer representative contacts U.S. game officials
Palmer's whereabouts are publicly unknown amid the uproar over the hunt, though his representative contacted the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Friday, the agency said.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is investigating the circumstances of the lion's death.
"The service's investigation is ongoing and appreciates that Dr. Palmer's representative voluntarily reached out to the service," the agency said, offering no detail about the correspondence.

Late yesterday we were voluntarily contacted by a rep of Dr. Palmer. We appreciate the cooperation, investigation is ongoing. #CecilTheLion
— US Fish and Wildlife (@USFWS) July 31, 2015
This week, the Fish and Wildlife Service made a public appeal to Palmer, asking him to contact the agency: "That investigation will take us wherever the facts lead. At this point in time, however, multiple efforts to contact Dr. Walter Palmer have been unsuccessful," said Edward Grace, the Fish and Wildlife Service's deputy chief of law enforcement. "We ask that Dr. Palmer or his representative contact us immediately."
Minister: Taking this issue seriously
Meanwhile, a White House petition requesting that Palmer be extradited to Zimbabwe may receive a response from the Obama administration.
The petition needed to receive 100,000 signatures by August 27 to get a response. It had more than 175,000 signatures by Friday afternoon.
Muchinguri said that there was also much outcry in Zimbabwe and that nearly 500,000 people via Facebook had called for Palmer's extradition.
"We are taking this issue seriously," she said, adding that Palmer should be tried in Zimbabwe.
Hundreds of protesters have gathered this week outside Palmer's dental practice in Bloomington, Minnesota, CNN affiliate WCCO-TV in Minneapolis reported.
In an email obtained by WCCO, Palmer wrote a letter to his patients, saying, "I deeply regret that my pursuit of an activity I love and practice responsibly and legally resulted in the taking of this lion. That was never my intention."
Cecil backlash: Where is Walter Palmer?
Feds mum on extradition request.
The U.S. State Department said that as a matter of policy, it would not comment on specific extradition requests.
Cecil the lion's death renews calls for hunting ban
"Privacy considerations prevent us from commenting further on the status of the U.S. citizen allegedly involved," it said. "For inquiries regarding any law enforcement aspects of the case, we refer you to the government of Zimbabwe or the Department of Justice."

The Department of Justice declined to comment on the extradition request.
Investigations indicate the killing of Cecil was illegal because the landowner "was not allocated a lion on his hunting quota for 2015," said a statement from the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority.

Cecil lovers send in donations.
The lion's death has seen a huge boost in donations for conservation efforts, according to Oxford University's Wildlife Conservation Research Unit. Its researchers had been tracking Cecil since 2008.

So far, $470,000 has been raised, enough to fund research into lion conservation in Hwange National Park for two years, it said. Two U.S. philanthropists, Tom Kaplan and his wife, Daphne Recanati Kaplan, have pledged to match any further donations, up to $100,000, it added.

Cecil's cubs likely to survive
Meanwhile, Cecil's cubs are likely to survive, even in the wake of the animal's death, according to one scientist who had been studying the lion.
The cubs are alive and are likely to be defended by Cecil's brother, Jericho, who may have fathered some cubs himself, said professor David Macdonald, director of Oxford's Wildlife Conservation Research Unit.

The cubs are not being tracked, and conservationists would have to find the adult females to find the cubs, Macdonald said.

Male coalitions -- often brothers -- oversee prides of females in lion society, and any threat is posed by external, incoming male lions, Macdonald said.

Ok Skankie a challenge is a challenge.
Here it is.
1. The plane crashed.
2. Nobody is alive.
3. The plane was crashed deliberately by the pilot.
Co-ordinates 13 degrees 01’ 28.1” S 84 degrees 04’ 54.2” E
The minutes and seconds are approximate but can be more accurately determined by radiesthesia.
4. Its approx halfway between Cocos islands and British Indian Ocean Territory.
The pilot himself hijacked (diverted the plane) on a suicide mission to Diego Garcia.
5. Three accomplices confiscated passengers satellite cellphones at gunpoint. A few did try call but were brutally suppressed.
6. USN responds, sends up fighters.
7. They did not want to shoot down the plane near Diego Garcia for secrecy purposes. They forced the plane to divert to open ocean south east of Diego Garcia.
8. The pilot, when he realized the mission had failed, ditched the plane.
9. The incident is suppressed by the NSA because of sensitive installations at Diego Garcia. They do not want any unnecessary attention drawn to the location.
9. The shooting down of Malaysian Flight MH7 at the Ukraine was in retaliation for this attempted terrorist attack.

Some Deep Philosophical Considerations -- Ray, Tue, 21 Jul 2015, 19:57:07 (NoHost/

Men are Deep Thinkers.

I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer. The drink facilitated some deep thinking. My wife walked by and asked me what I was doing and I said 'nothing'.

The reason I said that instead of saying 'just thinking' is because she would have said 'about what'. At that point I would have to explain that men are deep thinkers about various topics which would lead to other questions.

Finally I thought about an age-old question: Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts? Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a chap getting kicked in the nuts.

Well, after another beer, and some heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with the answer to that question. Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby; and here is the reason for my conclusion.

A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, "It might be nice to have another child." On the other hand, you never hear a fellow say, "You know, I think I would like another kick in the nuts." I rest my case. Time for another beer.

Dear Abby,

My husband is a liar and a cheat. He has cheated on me from the beginning, and, when I confront him, he denies everything. What's worse, everyone knows that he cheats on me. It is so humiliating. Also, since he lost his job 14 years ago, he hasn't even looked for a new one. All he does all day is smoke cigars, cruise around and shoot the bull with his buddies, while I have to work to pay the bills. Since our daughter went away to college he doesn't even pretend to like me, and even hints that I may be a lesbian.

What should I do?

I have word from terrorism experts that this is an Isis attack. The statement You are raping our women and taking our land is a signature Isis statement. The purpose of the attack is to stoke up blacks against whites to make it easier for Isis to recruit blacks. Roof has absolutely nothing to do with Rhodesians and South Africans. The media is playing along and supporting Isis by proclaiming that it is a "hate crime" a special crime done by white on black. I wonder how come any other violent crime of any other nature is not also a hate crime.

Wpnerful world of of Afrikaans... -- James S, Fri, 19 Jun 2015, 19:56:49 (CPE788df7ed2a63-CM788df7ed2a60.cpe.net.cable.rogers.com/

Just passing this on... James.

The Wonderful World of Afrikaans.

How do you explain the word "sommer" to someone who is not South African? It's not only a foreign word, it's a foreign concept. Perhaps the English never do anything "just sommer". There really is no equivalent.... "Why are you laughing? Just sommer."

"Bakkie" is another one, very useful around this house for all sizes and shapes of containers and dishes. Also used for what they call "utes" in OZ or "pickup" in England. I find it an indispensable word.

We all know "voetstoots" of course. It's been officially adopted into South African English. There's no concise, one-word equivalent in English. "As is" just doesn't hack it. And it's such a humorous word, conjuring up images of pushing that brand new car home...

There's no good English word for "dwaal". It doesn't mean dream, or daze. It's close to absent-mindedness, but that's not quite it. Being in one so often myself, I'm not likely to stop using it.

I think "gogga" is the most delightful word for insect I've ever heard. Children all over the world should use it. "Insect" just doesn't stand a chance.

And I think "moffie" is a far better word than all those embarrassed English attempts at defining a homosexual: gay, queer, poofter... None of them are half as expressive. Somehow "moffie" doesn't sound as derogatory either.

And then there's "gatvol". OK, I know it's very rude. But it's so very expressive, nê? "Fed up" doesn't have half the impact. "Gatvol" is a word used more frequently than ever in the workplace and the media these days, with increasing intensity.

While we're on the subject, another phrase which outstrips any English attempt is "Hy sal sy gat sien". "He'll get his come-uppance" definitely lacks the relish in comparison.

"Donder" is another very useful word, used as an all-purpose swearword, which again has no good English translation. Thunder does not even come a good second. Used as a verb, it can express any degree of roughing up. As a noun, it is a pejorative, as they politely say in dictionaries, to mean whatever you want it to mean. And there's no good translation for "skopskiet-en-donder" either.

It says something about the English that they have no word for "jol". Probably the dictionary compilers regard it as slang, but it's widely used for "Going out on the town, kicking up your heels, enjoying yourself ... Although curiously, the word "Yule" in Yuletide is related to "jol" and derived from Old English. So somewhere along the line, the English forgot how to "jol".

How do you explain the passion of "lekker!"? "Wow last night was a "lekker jol".

I've yet to meet a South African over the age of two who doesn't use the word "muti". Translation is impossible - "witches potion" is about the nearest I can get. It needs a long cultural historical explanation. Between "muti" and the pedantic "medication", there's simply no contest.

Other words that come to mind: "jou bliksem", "wag 'n bietjie", "nie so haastig nie", "just now", "sakkie-sakkie music", "ou swaer", "Ja, nee".

"Dudu". Telling your infant to "go to bed" is just not the same as, "Go dudu now, my baby!"

How about "bliksem"? "I'm going to bliksem you!". Wonderful Afrikaans expression with nothing to compare in the English language, at least nothing that gives the same satisfaction.

"Mielie pap" - there is no word like "pap", here. They have porridge, and when they say porridge, they mean oats. There's no Maltabela, no Tasty Wheat, No Creemy Meal... In other words, there's no "pap"!

"Mislik" - such a 'lekker' word. "Why are you so mislik, you little skelm?"

Which brings us to "skelm" - here you just get "baddies", but that doesn't have the same sneaky connotation of a proper skelm, does it?!

And "snot-klap"... Fabulous word! "Do you want a snot-klap?" How would you say that in English? "I'll slap you so hard the snot will fly!"? It's just not the same.

"Loskop" is another favourite. The English just don't understand when I say, "Sorry, I forgot - I'm such a loskop!"

And finally..... "moer". There simply isn't a word here that denotes the feeling of dread behind the phrase "If you don't clean your room, I'll moer you!"

helloo anybody here? (echo)
Dylann Roof, who shot nines Blacks in USA at church was wearing the old South African Flag and Rhodesian flag on his shirt on facebook photo.
Many of Roof’s Facebook friends, including those from his high school, are black. The cousin of the church’s pastor who was killed quoted a survivor who said Roof told the church: “I have to do it. You’re raping our women and taking over the country. You have to go.”

Sorry Vatican, Governor, Hitler already tried it. He got as far as 20 million before he was stopped. These were quickly replaced by a thing called the Baby Boom.(A-that'll be us). They don't realize that humans are like khaki-bos. You not going to get rid of them how much you spray and burn and harrow. Mugabe tried it also.

Vatican speaker and California Governor in push for massive depopulation... talk of 'Planetary Court' and removal of 6 billion people under new 'Earth Constitution' and 'World Government'
by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger
Vatican speaker and California Governor in push for massive depopulation... talk of 'Planetary Court' and removal of 6 billion people under new 'Earth Constitution' and 'World Government'
The depopulationists are on the move again, pushing hard for the elimination of six billion people on planet Earth in order to bring the planet down to what's being touted as its "sustainable carrying capacity of one billion people."

But this time, the depopulation agenda may be codified by the Vatican. Professor John Schellnhuber has been chosen as a speaker for the Vatican's rolling out of a Papal document on climate change. He's the professor who previously said the planet is overpopulated by at least six billion people. Now, the Vatican is giving him a platform which many expect will result in an official Church declaration in support of radical depopulation in the name of "climate science."

"The teaching document, called an encyclical, is scheduled for release on June 18 at Vatican City," reports Breitbart.com. "Perhaps with the exception of the 1968 encyclical on contraception, no Vatican document has been greeted with such anticipation."

So I now throw the question back to the Pope, Professor John Schellnhuber, Bill Gates, Ted Turner and other depopulation fanatics: How exactly are you planning to eliminate six billion people from this planet?

The truly hilarious part in all this is that the world's masses are already so totally brainwashed by climate propaganda that if you ordered them to voluntarily report to "eco-friendly euthanasia chambers" to save the planet by killing themselves, they'd line up in droves to comply! Heck, they'd buy tickets!

Interestingly, that might not be such a bad idea just to invoke the global Darwin award and invite the world's most idiotic, obedient sheeple to voluntarily remove themselves from the human gene pool in a sort of modern-day mass sacrifice to Gaia. The Aztecs did it, and that worked out just great! (Just ask all the Aztecs that are still around.) What could possibly go wrong?

Over the hill to the sea... -- Jenz (Feeling hopeful), Fri, 22 May 2015, 11:35:51 (41-133-106-59.dsl.mweb.co.za/

Took a trip yesterday, over Ou Kaapse Weg to Kommetjie. This was the first time since the huge fires that took out thousands of acres along the peninsula. The views were sobering. Some hillsides were just black. Some sported drifts of ash. Such desolation. Hoped to stop at Silvermine, before the road descends into Noordhoek, but there was a boom across the entrance road. HOWEVER... In several places there was bright new growth showing - mostly brackens and ferns, with some sword leaves promising lilies later on. And on the top of a five metre cliff next to the road a clump of red hot pokers in bloom - probably the most hopeful sign that the plants will be back!
On to Kommetjie...and a spot of birding at the Kom and the Island. Dozens of Sacred Ibis, some Hadeda Ibis, Cattle Egrets, and a large flock of mixed terns on the rocks... and Cape Cormorants flying in skeins. Extremely large flock of birds (possibly gannets) some distance out to sea. Very low tide and the wall of rocks at the sea-side of the little bay were exposed - the bay flat and shallow, and host to a dozen or more Greater Flamingo. Took a walk around The Island, and found it rather soiled with dog mess, and plastic waste. What a shame!

Tragi-comic scenes at Gweru city fire... -- James S (Old news, but still 'hot'....), Thu, 21 May 2015, 2:08:33 (CPE788df7ed2a63-CM788df7ed2a60.cpe.net.cable.rogers.com/


Tragi-comic scenes at Gweru city fire result in Council inquiry.

Gweru Gazette – 18-Mar-1983 (NOTE:Gweru is the 3rd largest city in Zimbabwe)

A large fire gutted three commercial premises' caused millions of dollars worth of damage and was the scene of an amazing performance by Gweru city's fire brigade on March 3.

Witnesses who were present said it would have outshone the Goon show.... if it hadn’t been so serious !

The council firemen's actions during the blaze, which started at about 5.15 pm, was so inept and undisciplined (incompetent) , according to by-standers, that the large crowd watching laughed and jeered at them.

Finally the Air Force Thornhill Fire Brigade was called, which organised all the firemen present and quenched the fire before it could spread further to other old wooden buildings, further along Gweru's Sixth Street.

The three premises, Wilson's Chemist, the Record Centre and a department of Zimbank at Gweru, were completely gutted. Police are investigating, the cause of the fire and claims against insurance companies are pending.


The fire apparently started in the roof of one of the shops.

During the fire-fighting operations Police and Army members arrived and tried to keep the interested crowds back. But a second witness said that some were drunk.

The Public Works Committee of the Gweru City Council has recommended that the city's fire brigade receive strong admonishment and ''be strongly retributed" (sic) for their performance and also that "stern disciplinary measures" should be introduced.

lt also recommended that the AF Thornhill Fire Brigade should he complimented, together with the Army members for their invaluable help in putting out the fire.

Another recommendation by the committee was that the Town Clerk should investigate the identity of a drunken Army member at the scene.

Several Gweru residents told a Gazette reporter this week that the actions of the Gweru Fire Brigade members were "a disgrace" after a few of them did arrive promptly at the fire at about 5.25 pm.

Of the full complement of about 36 firemen only about seven or eight arrived, and some were dressed in football kit and had no helmets.

The others, although theoretically on duty call, were out "playing football".

Only one fire engine was available... as the other was out of action... awaiting a spare part.

"After arriving at the fire... the real fun began." said a second spokesman.

"The Chief Fire Officer did NOT seem to know how to operate the fire engine. Then the firemen could not locate the fire hydrants (an offence in terms of regulations). When these were eventually located, they lacked tools to open the covers.... as these were in the other fire engine.... which was out of action".

Other witnesses made the following points:

The firemen finally connected their hoses to water without coupling them to the engine correctly, so only a dribble of low pressure water came out as they tried to put water on the roof where smoke was seen.

Later the Thornhill Air Force firemen arrived, correctly dressed and directed jets of high pressure water on the fire until the tank water in their fire appliance was exhausted and they ran out of foam.

Led by WOI N Swanepoel, they then organised the Gweru black firemen members and managed to get their hose correctly coupled to the council's fire engine.

But when it was switched on, the three Gweru firemen who were holding it lost control.

The strong jet of water hit a fireman on the roof, knocking him off the roof !

At a second attempt the force of the hose swivelled them around and they directed water on to another building opposite, instead of being directed onto the blaze.>


Another witness said that that at one time a Gweru fireman dressed in football kit left the fire hose he was helping to hold ....and ran off to move his shoes from the pavement to take them across the road. He apparently lost concentration !

"The huge crowd were laughing and jeering and could see nothing but the funny side ...of our fire brigade.

If one had had a movie camera there...one could have made a million dollars in royalties from the picture."

Another resident said that 'luckily the wind blew the fire away from the nearby Old Marche building' .

"If that had gone up it would have spread to the whole of the Sixth Street shopping areas on the south side, where all are wooden buildings."

During discussions about the Gweru Fire Brigade's performance at the fire by the Public Works Committee later, one councillor suggested that the firemen lacked "proper training".

However, other councillors emphasised that the men had received proper training and that most of them had been with the council for several years.

They said the "disgraceful" performance was due to negligence and indiscipline which called for stern measures.

A report of the fire appearing in the Gweru Times last week said the fire was doused at about 8.30 pm, largely thanks to the "cohesion" provided by the Thornhill Air Force fire fighters and their fine diligent and organised work.

The paper said "thank you" to the 21 Gweru and Thornhill Air force men led by WOI Neville Swanepoel, named each one present and said they deserved praise.

It added: "There were some in the crowd passing comment on what appeared to be confusion - but whatever out municipal brigade lacked in experience they more than made up for in tenacity and personal courage."

The report also said: "A member of the Air Force personnel commented after dousing the fire... that they had been impressed with the calibre of Gweru's municipal firemen."

It is not known how representatives of various insurance companies view the incident, thought to involve about $2 million worth of damage.

No worries as the Ozzies say James. It is good to add food for thought and pick the grey matter. I notice nobody answered my question is Rhodes is still hiding behind the Bulawayo Museum. The daughter who is over on holiday has just confirmed it is, just in case anyone was wondering. The animal displays are still the same as 30 years ago. The Doddiburg elephant is still there too.

24 April 2015 3:52 PM
The world's attention has been on Africa, but more specifically on South Africa as the country has been seeing violent xenophobic scenes where people from across the continent have been victims of violence and deaths.

Government and media and indeed many other South Africans have been spreading messages of #NoToXenophobia. Sam Cowen, who herself was not born in South Africa spoke about being raised in an apartheid South Africa where white people enjoyed certain privileges. Sam spoke about the love and comfort she enjoyed from South Africans ever since she and her family relocated here when she was young girl.

Have just finished reading/studying C Emily Dibb's book of the above title, not to get mixed up with "Back to the Trees" ! The last chapter "The call of Africa" has a poem which reflects what Africa is all about. But the random stories take a nibble at life as it used to be with an amazing amount of information. Similar to Sheila Macdonald's. "Sally in Rhodesia" and "Martie and others in Rhodesia" Conundrum Trees was Originally printed by Modus Publications and are books that I never allow to get dusty or given away.

That puts it at over 45-50 years ago ! Reckon my father (God bless him) soaked them in DDT because nothing has eaten them yet, they are preserved with linseed oil now.

South African Leader Calls for End to Antiforeigner Violence -- sa, Sun, 19 Apr 2015, 11:32:16 (NoHost/

In recent years, impoverished South Africans have lashed out regularly at laborers from Zimbabwe and Malawi and business owners from Somalia and Ethiopia. Some feel these immigrants take jobs and open businesses that could open the door to the better life that continues to elude many poor South Africans.

According to Human Rights Watch, hundreds of foreigner-owned stores have been ransacked each year since 2008, when a spasm of antiforeigner attacks left more than 60 people dead.

Zimbabwean drums... -- Jamesle, Sat, 18 Apr 2015, 15:56:31 (CPE788df7ed2a63-CM788df7ed2a60.cpe.net.cable.rogers.com/

Zimbabwean Drums.

The drums are calling old man, and they are louder by the day.

They are calling you to judgement and now's the time to pay

for the wrongs you've done your country and the trust betrayed.

So hear those drums swelling, hear well and be afraid.

You came to power on waves of hope that you would make your mark,

in a land that shone in Africa like diamonds in the dark.

In simple faith the people put their trust in your care,

and were repaid by the Fifth Brigade and the CIO and fear.

Twenty eight years of motorcades and lavish trips abroad

a nations heritage is lost through patronage and fraud.

The Chiefs grow fat while people starve and famine stalks our homes.

On idle farms the weeds grow rank and cover cattle bones.

The youth are taught your slogans, but even as they sing

the drums of change are beating for the truth is seeping in.

The demagogue has feet of clay and lies will not sustain

the shattered land that once seemed free and will be so again.

Too late to blame the drought, the Brits, the whites, the MDC

For all know where the finger points with cold finality.

So hear the drums, old man, and listen to them well.

They foretell of your end days and they have much to tell.

For he who sows the seeds of hate will reap the grapes of wrath,

so tremble in your bed at night, at the end of your sorry path.

South Africa shops looted despite Zuma call for peace -- jzuma (Van), Fri, 17 Apr 2015, 13:43:59 (NoHost/

Foreign-owned shops in South Africa have been attacked and looted in east Johannesburg, the latest in a series of xenophobic attacks.
A standoff is ongoing in Johannesburg, with police forming a barrier between an angry crowd and foreign-owned shops.
The violence comes despite Thursday's rally against xenophobia in the coastal city of Durban, and condemnation from President Jacob Zuma.
At least five people have died in anti-foreigner attacks in recent weeks.
Migrants, mostly from other African states and Asia, have moved to South Africa in large numbers since white-minority rule ended in 1994.
Many South Africans accuse them of taking jobs in a country where the unemployment rate is 24%.

JohnnyB its alway been like this 3500 years ago the Pharoah Akhenaton fired all the priests with all their little Gods exacting tribute from everybody for God this and that and Akhenataton declared only one God. After his death the priests tore down all the cities he built and removed his name from everywhere. It took until 1914 for German Archeologists to discover that he even existed. This is not the first time it has happened in "Zimbabwe" they suppressed all information about the whites who originated the Zimbabwe ruins also.

Quite right Ray - It would have been over 100 to 1 ratio.

Looking at the Rhodes statue being removed I wonder what the African school History textbooks will say in 50 years and what the British History books will say will be chalk and cheese. Africa will be like the Dark Ages in Europe. So much will and has been lost through the colonial history being removed to impress/indoctrinate in the African schools (if there are any genuine schools left). They will never know the real history of Africa ! All Rhodes scholarships should be withdrawn from students with "Rhodes must fall" T-shirts on.
