“Where are the “Big Brothers” since 1994? Those mentioned are only 5, what about Japan, Canada, Australia, NZ, China, Russia, France and all the other 200 countries? Those 5 countries must know, we are already a FAILED COUNTRY!!! And why do they also support B-BBEE, land expropriation and reform, that is racism against the white minority in South Africa. So their organisations, like KAS from Germany and others, mining companies, even Japan is in support of B-BBEE against the whites in South Africa. They all help the ANC and other political parties with the violation of our human rights. Or are they all together with George Soros and his schemes?
Waarom nou eers? Dit moes al lankal gebeur het. Sommige “Vlerkies” van korrupsie wat groei soos onkruid in die land is volgens sommige nie korrupsie nie en misdaad en moorde is ook nie misdaad en moorde nie – hul beskerm mekaar – terwyl die wêreldlande toekyk. Swart bemagtiging is ‘n skande en is verbasend dat dieselfde lande wat die ANC terreur ondersteun het, ons veroordeel het en dit as misdaad beskou het, maar nie die huidige regering se swart bemagtiging (B-BBEE ) nie. Nou hoe nou, waar trek die regerings ‘n streep, en dan lees mens daagliks hoe steun hulle swart bemagtiging.
Daar is nie simpatie vir ‘n “paddakoker” nie en dink hulle kan met alle korrupsie en veral misdaad wegkom. Misdaad is nog erger as korrupsie waar mense hul lewens verloor juis omdat die regering niks daaromtrent doen of wil doen nie. Maar of die lande wat aksie begin neem het, sal ons moet wag en kyk. Daar is en word al vir jare gerapporteer oor die vlakke van misdaad teenoor die burgers van die land, dat dit eintlik nie as ‘n verrassing kom nie. Onkruid kan nog beheer word, maar hierdie misdade teen die mensdom is groter as wat die 5 moonthede dink of besef. Hierdie land se Ambassades of Konsulate doen nie altyd wat verwag word nie. As enige persoon ‘n besigheid bedryf en daar gaan iets fout, word die hoof en bestuur verantwoording gehou, maar nie in Suid-Afrika nie. ‘n Boer weet wat gebeur as onkruid sy hele oes oorneem.
WHO IS IN CONTROL OF SOUTH AFRICA – FINANCED THIS SINCE 1994?
Five world powers, Switzerland, Netherlands, US, UK and Germany have reportedly warned that President Cyril Ramaphosa’s international investment drive could fail should he not act against perpetrators of state capture, corruption and other crimes. They have written to Ramaphosa. The countries signed a memorandum stating concerns about obstacles to foreign investments such as constant changes in the regulatory framework for mining. The newspaper is reporting that the world powers have called on for a reconsideration of current visa regulations in South Africa. The report says the confidential memo was prompted by jitters from potential investors in the five countries. The Presidency has confirmed to the paper that it received correspondence from several countries with significant investment in the country. Last year, Ramaphosa announced that his administration will work on securing more investment deals, following the South Africa investment conference. AND the president announced a R290 billion in investments and R400 billion in pledges.

Dirco says the communication should have been made through acceptable diplomatic practice.
“In terms of acceptable diplomatic practice, protocol and convention, diplomatic missions are expected to communicate to the receiving state by means of a note verbal [diplomatic note] conveyed through the Department of International Relations and Cooperation.
“All embassies, regional and international organisations accredited to South Africa are aware of this protocol and universal norm. South African diplomatic missions abroad consistently observe this protocol by directing official communication to the respective foreign ministries in the countries of accreditation,” Dirco spokesperson Ndivhuwo Mabaya said in a statement.
The embassies of the US, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland signed a memorandum stating concerns about obstacles to foreign investments such as constant changes in the regulatory framework for mining.
This comes after the embassies of the United States of America, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland wrote to the presidency warning that Ramaphosa’s international investment drive could fail should he not act against perpetrators of state capture, corruption and other crimes.
The statement further adds that Minister Lindiwe Sisulu has instructed her department to demarche the concerned ambassadors to discuss their memorandum and to reiterate acceptable protocol in addressing such matters.
Some of SA’s biggest companies, including British American Tobacco, Volkswagen, Mercedes-Benz, Ford and Barclays, are headquartered in these countries, and employ thousands of South Africans locally.
The document was signed by German ambassador Martin Schäfer, British high commissioner Nigel Casey, US chargé d’affaires Jessye Lapenn, Dutch ambassador Han Peters and Swiss ambassador Helene Budliger Artieda.
The move to send a joint confidential memorandum to Ramaphosa’s office was prompted by jitters from potential investors in the five countries about committing new funding to his investment drive.
Presidency spokesperson Khusela Diko confirmed receipt of “correspondence from representatives of a number of countries with significant investment in SA”.
“Whilst it’s unfortunate that those who are diplomats amongst them ignored and undermined established diplomatic channels and protocols for communication, the presidency has noted their input and regards it as part of the very important and ongoing dialogue taking place amongst South Africans and the investment community — both domestic and foreign,” she said.
The intervention is the first formal indicator that Ramaphosa’s New Dawn campaign to stimulate economic growth by attracting $100bn (R1.3-trillion) over five years might be in trouble.
At his presidential investment summit in October, there was much hype about pledges totalling R290bn. But this mainly constituted intended spending, public development money from international development agencies and lending from the Brics New Development Bank.
Ramaphosa and the four special investment envoys that he appointed last April have been scouring the globe for new spending and addressing negative perceptions of SA, including at the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
