SA could get another apartheid - Uys

2012-04-23 16:49

Johannesburg - An oppressive system similar to apartheid could emerge again if South Africans did not get more involved and held government accountable, activist Pieter-Dirk Uys said on Monday.

"Apartheid will never come back again under the same name but of course it will come back under a different name," he said at a public lecture at the University of Wits in Johannesburg.

"It will be an acronym and we won't know what it stands for but we'll continue to vote for it."

Uys said apartheid was a "stupid" system. He recalled how he was explaining to a 12-year-old how during apartheid that black people were not allowed to sit on certain benches and the boy thought it was stupid.

"Stupidity kills... It's so inventive; never underestimate stupidity... Don't underestimate the ANC Youth League," Uys said.

He said South Africans should not ignore what suspended ANCYL president Julius Malema said. "We ignore [Malema] at our peril."

The ANCYL was the future of this country, said Uys.

He urged the youth of South Africa to get more involved within youth structures.

      @MC, when people bash the ANC they don't really mean they supported Apartheid, ur ANC is very incompetent,whether u realise it now or later the fact remains.

      Mark - 2012-04-23 17:26

      We already have apartheid. Apartheid was not capitalist. It was racial socialism backed by paranoid white labour unions threatened by cheap black labour. There was affirmative action, minimum wage and the broederbond. These have merely been replaced by the ANC's own versions. These days it's not about who your skin connects you to, it's about who your lineage and ancestry connect you to. Merely being black is not enough (xenophobic attacks, anyone?). You have to be black and born, or directly connected to, black struggle aristocracy.

      Irene - 2012-04-23 17:26

      @Mc, two wrongs don't make a right! We don't need any racially motivated discriminations. Especially BEE!

      They say they suffered and it would never happen again-yet they openly practise some of the same backward ways! Problem is whites and anti anc are far too apathetic!

      Michele - 2012-04-23 18:02

      @MC - what rock do you hide under? There was NO SUCH THING as mining safety in 1946. Do you know that in 1946 there were no commercial airliners? And no skin divers? Jeeez, get over your persecution complex and read your history before you begin commenting on stuff that happened before your father was born. In 1946 World War II had just ended (in case you didn't know) and most white SA males were in Europe fighting against Hitler. How could they have "stolen" """YOUR""" jobs? FFS get a life, really. This is the mentality that will destroy us all.

      Taking it a bit far, aren't you Irene? The ANC is not evil and neither was the NP...people need to stop this mud-slinging and try make changes. How about a drive to educate those who vote ANC as to how politics work so they can make an informed decision?

      Irene - 2012-04-23 18:27

      Michele - 2012-04-23 18:44

      @ MC and to be honest - if they were paid more when they got back from the war in Europe they were probably paid extra to get over the rubbish that had happened to them over there, like being in concentration camps where they were forced to boil grass to even eat, and to get their families back on track after being away for 6 years. You are an uneducated idiot.

      Michele - 2012-04-23 18:48

      @ JJ I am really trying to educate them - but the ANC made them think they are clever cos they passed matric with 30%. Its like running into a brick wall over and over again.

      @Thebe Even in Zimbabwe, which now lies in ruins, people still sing praise songs of Mugabe. Today, SABC TV3 news showed some non-striking workers (male & females) who'd been stripped naked and ordered to dance in front a horde of grinning vultures. That's where we're headed and pointing out that, does not meant you did not loathe apartheid. Its a shame many of our people, do not see the dark cloud that's already beginning to hover above us - despite the tell-tales. And Thebe, Zimbabwe here we come...

      jmlongwe - 2012-04-23 22:09

      Ok DA people we all know the DA is not winning anything anytime soon, Helen knows this deep down, every interviewed qualified political analyst knows this, the ANC knows this thats why they are comfortable, evey clever person knows this, so why dont we cut cut all the crap, all the name calling etc, why fight amongst each other just because your DA are so bad at strategising. They are the worst strategists ever its sad, i laugh at every election year at their campaigns. At the rate they are going you might as well leave if they are your only hope. If you open up a shop and no one buys from you, do you blame the customer? No, it is all your fault, so stop blaming loyal voters for voting ANC, if anything then show your anger towards ANC itself. If you do not know how to play the political game then just leave. Get it in your head, DA is not winning anything apart from the Western Cape anytime soon (years). For the record im not an ANC fan myself. PS: im laughing now

      jmlongwe - 2012-04-23 22:43

      IM GOING TO SAY THIS ONCE, the sad part about news24 readers is that they tarnishe the look of the DA and all their effort to win over the black vote. It takes a lot to build a castle, but not much to take it down. Most black news24 readers are probably not even ANC supporters but when they read the racism towards them they will have their doughts. I'm saying this as im yet to find a black person INITIATING racism. Most hardcore ANC supporters probably dont read this site and im saying this due to the thumbs up that a racist comment towards blacks gets, so who exactly are you talking to when they dont even read your comments, you are just infuriating the small black voter support you have

      Frank - 2012-04-23 23:35

      @ Irene: you talk too much and all your comments are weak! How can u say the peoples movement is evil? Its your uncles, Terblanche, Malan, Vervooed, Botha, yourself that are evil not ANC!

      Mark - 2012-04-24 08:26

      @mangs Wow - your logic fails so hard it makes me want to cry. So all white news24 commentators are DA members (how do you establish this - they could vote for the FF+ or the ACDP! They may just be non-black, too - not only whites can be racist!)and therefore tarnish its image by freely expressing their own personal opinions? But when the members of the ANC loot, pillage and destroy in the paroxism of their service delivery protests, the 'ANC remains the ANC and bigger than any one individual or groups within it'? That is called a double standard, my friend.

      GrootWitHaai - 2012-04-24 09:11

      @ekuthuleni - That is what I am talking about! Right on the money. If the ANC supporters could get that concept, I reckon this country's problems would be solved. This country is WELL big enough to accommodate us all, but the leaders are too greedy; that greed will stay unless the voters are educated. The voters are voting ANC because of the Nelson Mandela stigma (I said this yesterday) But this will change; wait and see.

      @Leonard - much agreed. I know there is huge friction between a Xhosa and a Zulu. That was what Inkhata and the ANC were built on. What amazes me how many Zulus voted for the ANC in 1994. I say it was purely for Nelson (who is a Xhosa) However that stigma is now long gone, and I believe as you said, the friction could turn into faction fighting again. Trouble in paradise - apartheid within the masses??? Juju leading a rebellion??? They will eventually start killing each other and we can watch the carnage. (with our bullet proof armour on of coz)

    This is so true, the whole direction of the current ANC is steering into this direction.

And for what at the end of the day....

      Michele - 2012-04-23 17:45

      Under the Nats the taxation wasn't that bad - especially considering the infrastructure our taxes built. Nowadays us middle class are being taxed into poverty, and more than half of it is being stolen.

    we saw this coming long ago. With the changing of street names and landmarks, the reminders were removed and so history was destined to repeat itself. Apartheid never left us. Its skin just got darker and it changed its name to a prettier one -Black Economic Empowerment and Affirmative Action.

      @ Sello, I am not sure how old you are, but many many many many white people were against apartheid, which is why it collapsed. I suggest you listen to someone other than your ANC masters when it comes to history. Everyone had jobs, everyone had food, everyone had a roof over their head. Yes it was wrong, but this is far worse.

      Irene - 2012-04-23 17:53

      michael.falatsi ~ Get it in your head that whites never stole anything. FFS, you will NEVER get anything 'back' without PAYING for it. How hard is that for you to understand? Don't believe the shyte spewed from Malema's mouth because you're too flipping stupid to see through the BS.

      Tony - 2012-04-23 17:54

      @shade.vanderhaar You should not take tage of a situation to attack BBBEE and Affirmative Action policies as these not evil policies but a necessary mechanism to level the playing fields. However, where I would agree with you is the manner by which it is being implemented and not the policy per se. We know the landscape of the country very well and it is fact that most whites will continue to favour their own unless they are forced to do what they don't really want to do. Whites will even encourage their brothers and sisters to engage in fronting so that they can be awarded a tender. If a real assessment is carried out on the sharing of the economic cake South Africans will not be surprised to find that the Whites continue to reap the benefit of the economic cake in large numbers. The only time that I would believe that whites are suffering is when their numbers start increasing at the bottom of the occupationalleader irrespective to their academic qualifications.

      HugoMabasa - 2012-04-23 19:54

      yes Shade,apartheid is alive and well.Whites in this country are being persecuted and killed because of their skin colour no wonder unemployment among whites is only 4% and 68% of senior managers are white.No wonder they are present in large numbers in unis around the country.It is all the black people's fault.They were simply supposed to forget being uprooted from sophiatown to make way for whites,and just vote for the white man,after all the white man has master genes that require him to rule.The best way to achive this is to insult them until they give in and vote for the white party called DA,as the fuhrer has shown.

There is NO condoning Apartheid....JUST NO WAY!!! Crime is 90% Socio-Economic related hence BEE & AA are introduced to accelerate an equaling of society, so to speak. Somehow the moneys earned from this country's mineral resources must not float around in Western economies however these funds must be utilized to accelerate our transformation.

      sven.gohre - 2012-04-23 20:52

      @Irene, according to the TRC, during the 40 years of Apartheid, there were about 22,000 unnatural deaths. These included hangings of criminals and terrorists, murder, lives lost during the Border Wars, 80% of that figure was due to Black on Black violence between 1990 and 1994.From 1994 to 1999 125,000 people were murdered in South Africa. In fact since 2004 35,000 Whites alone have been murdered in their homes, not counting the more than 3,000 farmers that have been slaughtered for no reason besides Genocide. The police disagree and call these "Farm Murders" "NORMAL" crime. In fact since 1994 there have been approximately 342,000 murders in South Africa. I am sure that this comment will be deleted as usual, but facts are facts.

Your mental capacity should tell you that Crime and BEE cannot be used in the same sentence.

      Mark - 2012-04-23 18:28

      Do I really have to break it down for you? You claim that for people to understand another person's situation you have to actually experience it for yourself. The logical extension of this line of thought is that white people must be impoverished and subject to unjust laws in order to fully understand the black position and worldview. For one race to benifit, another must suffer. This is what is called a 'zero sum mentality'. It holds that there is a set amount of finite resources and for one group or individual to benefit, others must suffer; plainly it is a universal law that there are always winners and losers. To your second point, humans have a very special gift called 'empathy'. When we see people suffering, we have an inherent ability to sympathise with their position. Admittedly, this skill is somewhat more developed in some than in others, but the absence of this, as in sociopaths is recognised as a problem. I don't have to be put in a situation to understand that is it is bad. I don't have to suffer from poverty before I can understand it, much like I don't have to suffer from cancer before I can study or treat it. Ignorance of this fact makes it plain that you have a zero sum IQ. I hope that you enjoyed your schooling. Now why don't you go and read a book by Milton Friedman, Thomas Sowell or Carl Sagan?

But this country would fall apart if it was only black people, i'm not trying to be racist im just stating the obvious here, BEE is a failure, Affrimative action is a failure, Service delivery is collapsing along with the judicatial system and education.

    What most people fail to understand is that the manner in which a message is delivered is just as important as the message, because it will determine whether the message is accepted or not. Measure your words, consider the emotional reaction of the recepients, keep your message focused, avoid platitude, avoid emotional black mail, speak the truth and above all respect the intelligence of the recipient ... these are just some of the considerations that should be made if ones intention is to persuade. Starting off with "we could have another apartheid" just doesn't set the right tone. Apartheid was a racist system based on the notion of race supremacy. You are speaking to the youth (most of whom are black). They hear your words they will look at their leaders and look for traces of supremacist thinking. When they don't find these traces will they think well of you? It's not unusual for a government to become dictatorial. But for a government to fall into supremacist think is exceptional especially in these modern times! Yes corruption is there but if you want me to believe that these same people will start a version of the apartheid system I will just have to laugh. Corruption is a problem all over Africa and it needs everyones attention but this kind of hyperbole is the kind of distraction counterproductive.

I've never seen such poor strategists my whole life, why dont you rather hire people who know what they are doing, its actually laughable how they are so bad at it.

    White people sticked to their Apartheid Govt that took a good care of them. Now they claim to have Not supported it.

      Piet - 2012-04-23 20:26

      we did not, we voted yes to end it....oh but th at is not taught in ANC history lessons....

  • posseltk - 2012-04-23 18:14

    What i liked in this article is the last sentence, 'the youth of South Africa should get more involved within youth structures'. complaining on such news sites will never make any difference. we must rather get our hands dirty and fight for a better South Africa.

  • JJ - 2012-04-23 18:17

    With all this anc bashing and racism on this forum, its quite ironic that the reason people keep voting for the anc is that they may not be educated enough to understand politics as such. Why they don't, we'll that's pretty obvious isn't it? Anyway will leave the racists on both sides to argue it out

  • Brian - 2012-04-23 18:22

    Pieter-Dirk Uys should stick to cross-dressing!

  • lytteot7 - 2012-04-23 18:22

    some white people here on news24 that enjoy bashing, name calling black people and also showing their arrogance are the reason why most black people will continue voting for the ANC even if they screw up. Everyone is allowed to have a different opinion that's why is called debating but when you start calling your opponent a fool, idiot etc because they are differing with you then you will never win them over. Respect your opponent and if you defeat him you will get the same respect but continue with your attitude and see if you won't drive them closer to the ANC. You are voting ANC indirectly by pushing black people. Words are very dangerous.

      Boy Bana - 2012-04-23 18:33

      @lytte07. well said. wish south africans will grow up and learn to debate maturely without getting personal

      posseltk - 2012-04-23 18:36

      Well said. I hate ANC but when you read the comments in here you tend to think that maybe voting for DA might be a bad idea as well.

      JJ - 2012-04-23 18:38

      Exactly! They keep saying don't vote ANC but should I join the side that considers me an animal/idiot? This mud-slinging isn't going to change anything, everything will stay as is.

      HugoMabasa - 2012-04-23 20:02

      let them be,its their nature mos,these people never accepted black leadership even when the beloved Mandela was in charge.They always had excuses to insult black leaders.Most here call the ANC cancer but squirm when their beloved DA are called Nazis

      Michele - 2012-04-23 20:04

      Its easy to say "opinion". And in a democracy you have "opnion". Sadly, the very fing people who vote for the current government, and for malema (he will be worse) are the people voting for their own demise.

      Lerato - 2012-04-24 05:42

      After more than 200yrs of treating blacks like dogs, 18yrs its not enough to change the mindset of our white folks. Funny how almost every white person claims to have been fighting apartheid, makes me wonder who really was oppressing blacks. A quick question; How many white people voted for Mandela in 1994?

      HugoMabasa - 2012-04-24 14:14

      Lerato a UCT course handout puts the number at 2-4%

  • Boy Bana - 2012-04-23 18:30

    dnt look at colour of the messenger. listen to the message. the country can only bear so much mismangement. something will give eventually if the goverment doesnt remedy the ill very soon

  • phatudi.nathaniel - 2012-04-23 18:31

    Most of whites on news24 are making much damage to our beloved DA,Anger is so stupid and we know it,we all acknowledge dat cANCer killed our country,is it becouse of racism or is bcos of showerhead n his tsotsis.pls as DA MEMBERS down with racism comments,iwe rather use the media to gain votes.sorry my comment is irrelevant

      Irene - 2012-04-23 18:36

      phatudi ~ Why don't you ask your bruddahs to stop with the racist comments? Have a little chat to the likes of Tsotsi and Zetzingani etc. Don't point a finger at whites because there are 10 fingers pointing back at the the black racists.

      bluzulu - 2012-04-23 19:05

      Irene, Irene...have you read some of your posts ?

      HugoMabasa - 2012-04-23 20:04

      nazis winning people over,are you siriaaas?

      phatudi.nathaniel - 2012-04-23 21:14

      I mean racism is associated with white people and that is black people's mantality.since we (blck ppl) are alot,also in news24 we won't like comments as, u knw dem.i wish our government(since we dnt have a choice) can push our country through education otherwise the poor will be the poorest.

  • Cornelius - 2012-04-23 18:33

    I don't accept this analysis of absurd negativity. Yes ANCYL is a thorn in our flesh but to think anything close to apartheid will ever be experienced is totally unfounded. Only a person who didn't suffer during apartheid can make such a statement. Look what is happening in Zimbabwe, despite Mugabe being a monster but his policies are still better than the colonial policies.

      Irene - 2012-04-23 18:36

      LOL! We have another stand-up comedian!

      HugoMabasa - 2012-04-23 20:04

      what is she laughing at ?

      Piet - 2012-04-23 20:28

      @cornelius who thinks he know any thing about govenance...he clearly has not been in zim to check for himself....

      spitjoo - 2012-04-23 20:32

      @Irene seems like you have a serious problem with the current system...I suggest you start searching for greener pastures like the others did.

  • Lynda - 2012-04-23 18:35

    Pieter Dirk Uys is a highly intelligent man with a finger on the political pulse of this country. I have always felt that Malema is playing to the white man's notion that he is a fool.....he is the future of this country what ever we may feel about his antics.

      HugoMabasa - 2012-04-23 20:05

      no he's not

  • henk63 - 2012-04-23 18:37

    The so-called disgusting rightwingers knew reverse apartheid would happen once blacks came to power, that's why they resisted. They did not resist change per se, but the FAST change. We now have a government and their "youth" who was not introduced to power properly but it was dumped in their lap and as expected, they don't know how to use it wisely. Imagine a child in a sweet shop. When this country is at war the right-wingers will say "I told you so" but then it will be too late anyway. So Pieter-Dirk, there is no avoiding what is coming. You, Max, and other liberals (I forget) will choke in your blood the same as all those righties who saw it coming.

  • bashin.monyela - 2012-04-23 18:37

    Judging from certain comments, i can conclude that SOME white people sure do love licking their own b@llz.

  • Gerhard1Marais - 2012-04-23 18:40

    Uys you know what is Polony hey ?

  • Michele - 2012-04-23 18:46

    A JJ i am trying to educate them. Clearly the ANC did not.

  • Marios - 2012-04-23 18:51

    this article is absolutely irrelevant and ridiculous, is this an activist? the problem to madness. the Apartheid regime "stupid system" was an ideology indoctrinated by the colonialist on the white population to rule. It wont come back It cant come back, however the government is rotten, rotten to the core. South African Politics is nothing but a mirage for the human mind a distraction while the big wealthy international business interests sweep our economy dry, the oppressor surely has had enough. Malema's vision with some guidance from above and not his ego is not horrible... for indeed we are the 99 %.

  • leko.dada1 - 2012-04-23 18:51

    Some people are using education tool as a shield in preventing previously disadvantaged not to level playing field.Such people were lying low or claiming superiority, enjoying every priviledge in past regime! Mr UYS another form of Apartheid is urgently needed.We cannot rely on ENSLAVING EDUCATION even blind people are able to see reality that millions of un-employed are graduates,Over-qualified youth working at retail shops...Those benefited in Apartheid need to refine or keep quiet in enjoying their savings .

  • fezile.mfengwana - 2012-04-23 18:54

    Malema wil come back and rule us all. You see Mandela was hated the same way Malema is hated now that is why he was sent to prison. Mandela fought for the bench. Malema is fighting for economic freedom. After Malema there wil be someone else!

      Sasha-Lee - 2012-04-23 20:36

      Mandela was a qualified lawyer with his own lawfirm . U cannot compare the 2. Mandela used intellect and julius uses only his mouth.empty vessel of note. Mandela and early leaders of the anc new the only way to fight the enemy was on an even playing field. Education! Something the youth lacks terribly because of their need for easy money.

      fezile.mfengwana - 2012-04-24 06:28

      @lee The point here is Mandela was a threat so is Malema; and hey Malema is studying towards a degree. That said he is not illiterate which by definition means: having no education. Malema wil be your president maybe Mr Uys should make sure that he has a VISA to AUSTRALIA, some went there upon Mandela's released.

      Balan - 2012-04-24 08:05

      Fezile, Australia is a successful country and it is a first world country, unlike South Africa thats going backwards.

      bluzulu - 2012-04-24 09:11

      Aussies are racist as....enjoy it, That's all you have ever been and thats all you will ever be,,,,,,,Damn lost fool following the Colonist. Grow some B*lls.
