http://bit.ly/mCZgCK - a full 87% of all the posts in the most crucial governing-department in South Africa - the presidency and its 'national planning commission' -- are vacant. So, good citizens, by all means - do apply !Today, South Africa received the worst possible ratings in governance in the 'African Peer Review report." Its police force, its 'handling' of xenophobia, crime and corruption, all are sharply criticised...
And small wonder: in parliament last week, was revealed that under the guidance of Pres Jacob Zuma, the most important departments in the country -- namely the Presidency and its National Planning Commission – are creaking along at a whopping 87% vacancy rate.
Developing a long-term vision for South Africa with only 8 employees:The National Planning Commission was created in Sept 2009 by the cabinet ‘to develop a long-term vision and strategic plan for South Africa. However out of its 62 posts, only 8 employees are left to run it: there are a whopping 54 vacancies.
The National Planning Commission was held out to the voters as ‘recognise the primacy of Cabinet as the final arbiter and ultimate collective decision-making body responsible for all major policies and plans.’ And out of the Presidency’s 571 posts, there are also another 143 vacancies. This was revealed after DA-parliamentarian M.Swart enquired about the current vacancy-levels in these two crucial departments.
According to the information on their website, the National Planning Commission “was a new initiative of government which was approved by the cabinet in August 2009’. It is chaired by the Minister in The Presidency for National Planning. The NPC will be the body ‘responsible for developing a draft long-term vision and strategic plan for South Africa.” With only 8 employees left to run it.
This is President Zuma’s speech on June 24 2011 in regards to the budget: one comment stands out, namely that ‘ the Information Bill has no malicious intent’ …

http://bit.ly/mmDWdu - The ANC-regime is arming its youth league, while the besieged white minority is rapidly being disarmed of their 1,2-million legal self-defence weapons: the murder-gangs get free reign with Chinese AK47s; and why were 600 members ANC youth league comrades given military training - just to conduct a ‘rural census’ in the ‘National Rural Youth Service’ ?
Afriforum and the Transvaal agricultural union in combined court-application asking that the firearms-registration act be declared unconstitutional – source
Only 43,000 of the 1,2m gun-reregistration applications have been approved thus far: the deadline is end July 2011...
Deliberate chaos for legal (mostly white) gun-owners:
“ The head of the firearms-registry office in Pretoria Brig Jaco Bothma was sent on forced leave, no reasons given - and replaced by Col Miriam Magwani who is ‘never there’.. Afriforum spokesman Nantes Kelder.
Applications found torn up in waste-baskets, sprayed with water…Besides the large piles of applications lying about, chaos is also created by the minister's claimed ' 600 railway-officials' who were brought in to 'catch up with the backlog'. The minister claimed that these '600 officials' were rushed into the melee to try and make the July 31 2011. However police captain Adriao said there are no 600 railway officials: 'a small group of officials were brought in to perform administrative tasks - but it most certainly was not 600 people'. And they aren't doing a very good job either, said Adriao: 'after their first night-shift officials of the central registry found torn-up applications in the rubbish-bins'. Some of these applicatons also were wet from water sprayed across them.'The railway police have no training whatsoever in applying the Law on Firearms control.' There is a lack of management and control at that office'.The Afrikaner who headed the office, Brig Jaco Bothma, was sent on enforced leave. No reasons were given.His job was taken over by a black female officer, col Miriam Magwani.An agenda from a September 2010 noted that Mangwani 'is never present at her job'."It's difficult to work for the head of a department when she's never there,' said Kelder.In fact in the September meeting is was requested that 'Brig Bothma look into the reasons for Ms Mangwani's constant absence and to appoint someone who does present for work each day.'Kelder and Beeld also tried hard to get hold of Mangwani to find out what the problem could be. However to no avail. Kelder says he 'suspects that Mthethwa perhaps does not realise the reality of this massive backlog of applications. It seems that he is constantly being given the wrong information'.However the police minister's spokesman Zweli Mnisi mere said they had 'confirmed the statistics and stand by them.'
White families who desperately need their legal guns to protect them against heavily-armed criminal gangs, now face arrest by aggressive gaggles of cops and publicly shamed in a ‘trial by media’ by the police-minister for owning ‘illegal guns-caches’ link
The arming of the ANC youth league: Wall of aggression against Afrikaner youth leaguehead Charl Oberholzer when he tried to find out why the ANC’s National Rural Youth Service was founded and why 600 ANC youth league members were given militiary training at Saldanha Naval base:
On May 3 2011, the civil rights movement Afriforum youth league national chairman Charl Oberholzer, above, walked into the office of the country’s Minister of Defence and Military Veterans Department, Lindiwe_Sisulu, to hand in a petition asking the minister to explain, under the Freedom of Information Act, why 600 civilian ANC-youth league members underwent militia-training at Saldanha military base at the expense of the taxpayers to create the mysterious “National Rural Youth Service’, and what use this militia-group could possibly have to require them to undergo military-training. The young Afrikaner’s delegation ran ‘into a wall of aggression’ at Sisulu’s office. Their petition for information was ‘rejected as unnecessary’ by this unnamed, obviously very aggressive government official (right), who told Oberholzer that ‘the Minister did not have time to have to explain themselves to Afriforum youths”. http://www.facebook.com/notes/afriforum-youth/source documents:

Shoot to kill: SAPF commissioner Bheke Cele : "Anyone who kills a police officer should run until they cross the Red Sea because we will catch them'
28 June 2011. SPRINGS. SAPF commissioner Bheke Cele, has again repeated his 'shoot-to-kill' order to his police-officers -- this time speaking at the funeral of one of the country’s top police-shottists, reservist Lt-col Marc Ishlove, who was killed in a shoot-out in Northcliff on June 15.
Ishlove’s fame as a shottist made him one of the top police-reservist heroes: especially after November 2007, when the commander of the Honeydew police station (second left below) had fired just two shots: first to shoot dead a black attacker who was sitting on top of gynecologist Dr Elmarie Wypkema. robbing her jewellery and assaulting her while a gang was hjacking her car. He then turned his gun on the other hijacker already seated behind the wheel of her car, and shot him dead too.
On June 15 2011, Ishlove was killed during a confrontation with hijackers when police-reservists chased down and cornered another robbery-gang, driving a luxury-Mercedes. During the wild-west shootout, two black gunmen were shot dead. In the crossfire Lt-col Marc Ishlove was also fatally wounded. He smiled as he lay dying, said his friend police-reservist constable Fliff Bond afterwards. This picture of Ishlove was taken after the November 2007 confrontation. His colleagues described him as a man who had also ‘greatly inspired them to take up shooting as a sport. ‘
Lt Col Marc Ishlove – a deadly police-shottist:
‘This is war and we will win’
"We cannot allow our country to be ruled by criminals," said Cele at his funeral service. "No member of the police should be killed by criminals when they are holding a gun in their hands."(source: Thuli Malinga)
Cele: "criminals had declared war on police and they, the police, were not going to sit back and do nothing while their officers were killed. Anyone who kills a police officer should know that we will go after them. They should think about the officer they have killed even when they are asleep or brushing their teeth.
They should run until they cross the Red Sea because we will catch them."
He added that the public was quick to make ill-advised comments. Cele said that those who wanted to have a say in the running of the police force should first find out the facts before making unfounded statements.
"For as long as our police officers are killed in the line of duty, I will continue to tell them to shoot to kill. Not a single officer should be killed with a gun in his hand," he said. "When police officers are called to attend to a crimes such as robberies and heists, they should be properly armed. We cannot expect them to carry sjamboks because those criminals will not be carrying broom sticks or feather dusters, but they will be carrying guns as well."
Cele said if critics believed that his shoot-to-kill policy was out of line, then that was their own business. "This is war and we will win," he concluded.
Meanwhile - how’s that physical fitness for cops programme going then?
Meanwhile earlier this year, senior cops from Randburg, Honeydew, Douglasdale and Fairlands police stations gathered at the Randburg Sports Complex for a fitness-assessment. Colonels, lieutenant colonels and captains were made to walk 1.6 km, run 30 laps, do push-ups and sit-ups. How far each official walked and ran, and the number of sit-ups and push-ups they managed was logged onto a chart used to determine their fitness levels.
This was also done on the instructions of Cele, in his National Fitness and Wellness Programme. Colonel Barbara Kruger of Honeydew police station said the programme was “aimed at encouraging officers to get physically fit before their next assessment. In six months’ time we will do it again and everyone must have improved." The Northcliff Health and Squash Club and the Bodylab were on hand to provide assistance during the session. Also being assessed on her physical fitness was Captain Zoliswa Magocoba. This was in April 2011.
