Aug 13 2008 Johannesburg, South Africa. A sixteen-year-old schoolboy of Daveyton at the East Rand near Johannesburg, South Africa was denied bail by the local magistrate yesterday after police arrested him for carrying a mini-Uzi submachinegun in his schoolbag, together with four rounds of ammo. The youth had dumped his books.
The mini-Uzi's official designation as a 'small weapon' allows its legal sale locally by the SA Denel arms manufacturer. The boy thus only faces charges of failing to register a weapon in his possession. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uzi http://www.telegraaf.nl/buitenland/1703246/__Leraren_gewapend_voor_klas__.html
Police captain Alfred Nakana said the cops just happened to drive through the street in the high-crime township where the unnamed pupil lives - and spotted the boy with two other armed youths.
Such frequent monitoring of troublesome, criminally-active communities is often done by police worldwide, including in The Netherlands, and with considerable success.
- The other two youngsters -- police said they were also armed with Uzis -- ran away when the police jumped out of the patrol car and grabbed the youngster with the lethal contents of his schoolbag, Nakana said. Police know who those two boys are -- and are still searching for them.
Uzi used in armed robbery: The arrested local high school pupil claimed that the Uzi belonged to his dad - but his dad denied it in a statement to the local magistrate. Police said this same Uzi had also been used in a local armed robbery on Friday-night during which a man was shot in the chest and treated at the Far East Rand Hospital.
'Don't give my difficult child any bail...' says daddy
The father vehemently refused to support his son -- telling the Daveyton magistrate that he was 'a difficult child and should not be allowed bail.' The magistrate agreed, ordering the youth taken to the youth criminal detention centre in Pretoria until 12 September, when he's been placed on the Benoni magistrate's court roll for illegal arms-possession and as a suspect in an armed robbery.
SA youths form feral, huge armed hunting-packs - the civil war is creeping closer:
Such township youths in SA are becoming increasingly feral and dangerous and forming themselves into huge hunting-packs, going around killing and torching foreign African families and carrying out well-organised armed robbery raids. They have dropped completely from parental control . http://groups.msn.com/crimebustersofsouthafrica/racialabuse1.msnw
These hundreds of thousands of black South African youngsters instead take their life-management clues from ANC-leaders such as Jacob Zuma, who loves to sing his 'bring me my machine-gun' song in public - thus also constantly glorifying violence, and for which he is increasingly being told is very misplaced because of the rise in violent crime throughout the country.
The song is in Isiswati - a Zulu subtribal dialect - and is called Umdzidzi wami or Khawuleth umdzidzi wami. The song is popular in many drinking holes and tarvens frequented by such youths in South Africa.

'I WILL FIND PLACES FOR YOUR CHILDREN AT THE ORPHANAGE...'
August 13 2008 - GAUTENG PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE, PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA -- The ruling ANC's Gauteng-provincial agriculture minister Kabisi Mosunkutu, pictured here, yesterday issued a very limp apology for publicly threatening to kill members of the Democratic-alliance opposition in April this year.
The ANC-fat cat - accused by the DA of fraudent land-development dealings -- had issued his ominous death threat at a press conference, shouting at DA chief whip Glenda Steyn and other DA-members that he 'would find places for their children in the orphanage' - and then chasing them out in full view of the news media as if they were dogs.
Cynism towards ANC-politics growing fast: Small wonder that with men like that in charge, capable of such irresponsible public behaviour, the public's cynism towards all ANC-run politics is also growing hand-over-fist among SA voters - as indeed voters worldwide also are growing increasingly bitter about their public representatives. http://www.telegraaf.nl/binnenland/1677806/__Bijna_iedereen_nu_cynisch_over_politiek__.html http://www.telegraaf.nl/buitenland/1678475/__Vlaams_politicus_met_dood_bedreigd__.htmlDROOPY DOG APOLOGY: Beeld newspaper reports that this public apologywas describes as a rather 'droopy dog' performance by opposition member Glenda Steyn, who added that it 'may just be enough', but she wasn't sure as yet. Mrs Kemp and her DA-colleagues in the Gauteng legislature had all felt very threatened after Mosunkutu issued his ominous death threat in response to the Democratic Alliance 's formal report, containing proof of the agriculture MEC's allegedly fraudulently approving a controversial R8-m land-development scheme.
The Gauteng voters, already up in arms and demonstrating frequently against the soaring food prices and growing food-shortages in the province, became even more upset after Mosunkutu admitted that his agricultural policies had failed dismally - by urging that the province's millions of poor squatter-camp residents and township dwellers such as these homeless Afrikaners on the left, would have to start growing their own food in their own (non-existent) backyards - and very quickly as the country's affordable food supplies were dwindling very fast now. http://www.gdace.gpg.gov.za/NewsArticle18_2008.htm
The Gauteng province's integrity-commissioner Advocate Jules Browde, asked to investigate Mosunkutu's disgraceful public behaviour towards the DA-opposition members; noted in his hard-hitting report that the ANC-MEC should be 'severely punished' for stepping over the boundaries of decent behaviour - and that his involvement in the R8m land-deal should be urgently investigated.
- Browde said in his hard-hitting report - published on the DA's now hacked-away website -- that Mosunkutu had failed to carry himself with the public dignity required of a publicly-appointed official and had failed to maintain the rules of public transparency.
He said the DA members were correct to feel very threatened by his outburst containing the death threats - and that their submitted proof of the ANC MEC's dealings in the R8m land development project should be urgently investigated. This demand however was shot down by Gauteng 's ANC-premier Mbhazima Shilowa.He 'didn't mean it...' -- but does not withdraw his death-threats
Yesterday, in public, Mosunkutu finally offered a rather limpwristed apology about his public death threats towards the DA-councillors, saying it had been 'a lapse in judgment' and that he 'hadn't meant to upset anybody.' He didn't withdraw the death threats themselves, however.
