Sarkozy congratulates ANC on centenary

2012-01-06 20:07

Johannesburg - The history of the African National Congress is a source of universal inspiration, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said on Friday on the occasion of the party's centenary celebrations.

"When the ANC, initially created to defend the oppressed majority's rights, found itself faced with the injustice and violence of the apartheid regime, it bravely chose dialogue and negotiation," he said in a letter to President Jacob Zuma offering his congratulations.

He said this had earned South Africa as a whole the esteem and respect of the international community.

"The ANC has since evolved from a victorious liberation movement.

"For 18 years now, it has guided the action of a government with which the French authorities are pleased to co-operate closely in support of relations between our two countries," said Sarkozy.

    Err, President Sarkozy, I lay in bed with tea and BBC this morning watching your “crew” kicking out the Romanian’s from your country. The kids are not entitled to attend school or use any social services. Not that I disagree with your stance entirely. While you are dispensing your pearls of wisdom and support for the ANC, maybe you want to give them some pointers on how to eradicate SA of thieving, kidnapping, drug mule foreigners as you have done in your country with resounding success. Don’t end there, maybe a few pointers on how whites can get a fair shot at getting a job, or how farmers can better defend themselves…………….I will leave it there for now………don’t want to be a party pooper.

      I have now got a box of Benzene for the Virodene Awards of 2011: The nominees are: Thabo Mbeki Doctor ( of medicine ) Nkosazana Zuma ( the 2 were the big pushers of the attempt to Genocide 5 million aids sufferers with Benzene labelled as Virodene - which is now their prize! ) Pres Zuma Julius Malema ( acomplices ) David Miliband ( cover up ) Barack Obama Hilary Silly Hilly Billy Clinton Bill the Clown Clinton ( Financiers of Abortions ) Jullian Assenge ( the Genocide of Millions of SA People is not important to him - a few Iraqui casualties are : arab bloob is more important than african blood ) Ariel Adorfmann ( the mentally challenged does not understand that if Mandela was aquitted in his trial of treason because he does not owe allegiance, neither does SA owe benefits to him and his people ) Fidel Castro and Raul Castro ( for the Genocide of the Cuban and African People, particularly 1 500 000 Ethiopians and 500 000 Angolans ) and the Manpara Virodene Award goes to... Julius Malema! For doing his utmost to expose the truth about the ANC!

    Zuma was there! When the aids awareness campaign failed, Pres Zuma was there! When the ANC wanted to give Benzene as a cure for aids, atempted Genocide by negligence, Pres Zuma was there! When the ANC refused to buy medication from the West, but had money for submarines, Pres Zuma was there! Genocide by denial of medication. I remind you that Zuma claimed, in his previous London interview, that Mbeki carried out the policies of the ANC, where he Zuma, was vice president - just as responsible!

      Walter - 2012-01-06 21:32

      Jip Comrade. That is pretty much the unpublished version of South Africans as well, except those hungry for power or scared to loose power. Hail Johnathan Jansen for the quote of 2011, summing the ANC up in very few, but powerfull words.

      Garth - 2012-01-07 08:16

      @Walter - Is that the naming of these useless, ignorant, thieving, racists as an `ineptocracy'? Must agree with you - quote of 2011. Hey moss, you still around? Haven't been scraped off your rock by some Civet wiping its ar$e? Pity.

    The only good thing about sarkozy is that his wife likes to show off her t1ts. Hey sarkozy: "1 Q, 2 Q, 3 Q, 4 Q."
