Why only SANDF attacked by rebels?

23 May 2014, 09:38

Why our SANDF was there at DRC? You must ask yourself a question. And who was responsible for this deployment?  must follow in your mind. After they were attached where was mentioned as an ambush Xolan never confirmed the fatality. Why only SANDF attacked by rebels?

Quoted by the times, Xolani Mabanga, said the armed forces could not confirm the number of South African casualties in the battle for control of the capital, Bangui. “We are not yet in a position to say how many troops we have lost and how many were injured,” he said, adding that SANDF was still verifying the information it had received, assessing the situation and informing the next of kin of the deceased troops.

In the clashes that ensued, at least six South Africans are said to have been killed. “I saw the bodies of six South African soldiers. They had all been shot,” a Reuters witness said. Later, he said he saw three more bodies in burned-out South African military vehicles. Still other reports put the number of South Africans dead at ten. Very sad for those who lost their loved one’s there.

Until last week, when I got shock of the year and the answer to three question I mentioned above. The controversial business tycoon Khulubuse Zuma owns an oil fortune of R100bn in the Democratic Republic of Congo ( DRC ) which he allegedly acquired through the help of his uncle, President Jacob Zuma

An investigation by sister publication Rapport has found that the president played a vital role in the decision by DRC President Joseph Kabila to award two oil fields in the northeast of his country to Khulubuse in 2010.

Eight months before Kabila's decree, in which Khulubuse was awarded two of the most prestigious oil licences in sub-Saharan Africa, he met with his South African counterpart in Kinshasa where the oilfields were allegedly discussed. Make up your mind for all this.

Are we opening our eyes on those conflicts in Africa as a whole? Malema once said Zuma is responsible on the killing of Magadaffi. This is one of two next researches’ to come.
I will come back with the overall conflict in Nigeria. The Boko’s must have a good reason to kidnap the girls and random killing of civilians.

Why I love Cambodia’s capital

There are so many reasons to hate Cambodia’s bite sized capital of Phnom Penh. Open sewers, naked children, piles of burning garbage on every street. Its a dirty, smelly, noisy amalgam. But Phnom Penh grows on you and by the time you leave it will occupy a special place in your heart. Read more...
