South Africans Vote as President Zuma Seeks Second Term

Post  Sirop14 on Wed May 07, 2014 9:01 am

MARIKANA, South Africa — Voters cast ballots across South Africa on Wednesday after a long campaign season that highlighted the governing African National Congress’s internal cracks and President Jacob G. Zuma’s growing unpopularity.

South Africans lined up by the hundreds at polling stations, less to choose from a long list of parties than to pronounce judgment on the A.N.C., the liberation movement that has governed since the end of apartheid in 1994 but which has become mired in corruption scandals in recent years. Polls have predicted that, though the A.N.C. will steamroll to another victory, it will garner fewer votes than in the past.

It was too early to say how the voting was proceeding in several poor, black townships surrounding Johannesburg, where rioting youths, angry at living conditions, have held protests for months and tried to bar the A.N.C. from their communities. Rioters in one such township, Bekkersdal, set fire to polling stations overnight.

Here in Marikana, the site some 70 miles northwest of Johannesburg where the police killed 34 miners involved in a wildcat strike in 2012, voting started peacefully. Last week, Mr. Zuma canceled a visit here at the last minute, a few days after protesters angry at the government’s handling of the strike and its aftermath burned down an A.N.C. office here. But several voters at one station near a squatters’ camp voiced support for the A.N.C., underscoring the party’s continuing strength even in places with many disaffected residents.

“I thought my vote would make a difference and bring jobs,” said Aram Lentsa Kgahloe, 38, a day laborer who had lined up at 2 a.m. to be first in line and who had voted for the A.N.C. “I know the party’s history.”

Our Dear Fatma - in Britain we had the 4/5th May ancient fertility celebration and the new meaning to many. We also came across to reasonably well dressed  gentleman after we had address the Tyrrel thread at Sechelles Seychelles Senate.  We have addressed a good deal regarding our life in Kent after 1991 - the construction of the Channel Tunnel - those who returned to Seychelles, those from the Royal Family who visited Seychelles in 1993.  The reason we could not return Home with the other exile/refugees.  Again a great deal we have explained the restructuring of our Seychelles EU community workings based a Channel Secretarial Service Folkestone - across the Bus Station - the former Mauritian Councilor - his Estate Agent business and two of our Lawyers Roots and Alliotte and the other one fail to recall his name.  Other important Mauritian Family in Folkestone then. We have written about the Old French Families 950 years ago who came/migrate to Britain/Kent their place of rest - Folkestone and Dover Cemetery.  The discovery of that Viking ship in the middle of Dover by the Road and town builders. Beside other Roman gold Trove. Because I could not get to France/Bruxelles - those who opposed it then Seychelles High Commission - instead used the Folkestone Library to do a  lot of researcher work - having decided to put into place a Greater community emblem /coat of Arms, sat in the quiet room of Folkestone Library and across the window the Folkestone Masonic Lodge - worked and research and sketched the Emblem /coat of arms, those who helped and advised us - including many from Old Seychelles Families in exile their knowledge and high responsibilities in these issues. We presented the draft to the Royal college of Arms and received due acknowledgement and reply and later visited them to provide more details. We presented the work and documentation to the European Heraldic Institutions and that of South Africa, beside the Vatican institutions and the Church of England. Then President FA Rene - our then Italian Fraternal/Illuminati workings like GMR, then Mr Guy Morel, then Mr Guy Lionnet and many others, those in Mauritius and Reunion - most important those surrounding former President FA Mitterrand, government, French Illuminati and then EU workings. Many hold the view one/you are not permitted to babble about everything you work regarding the Illuminati - the need for accountability - then Vatican and Pope John Paul ll - the long list of issue as we/I worked that project it got synergized/driven, the Reclamation phase lll in Seychelles.  When we began to apply the full colours of that Seychelles EU community emblem  - the many Royal issues involving and affecting then Europe Royal Family, former Russia and East Europe. We were based in a Mobile Office/ex Societe General des Eaux France - North West Holst construction - the site was Caple le Fern former French holiday place - Caple Court Country Club and the Cercle Francais in Folkestone, the Masonic, Lodge in Dover and the Castle beside other Law firms we had been using in Dover and the south African - their business. . The announcement that a Trilogy based upon JR Tolken will be made - the cost, actors and debate of location just like that WWW issues had i/we sketch and worked that Seychelles EU community coat of Arms/emblem in France or Belgium - the outcome of the Lord of the Ring Trilogy- the film would have been made/produce in Scandinavia. We wish to address everybody here such work discipline is not a question of the thumb - it is either or.  Those who research and know the discipline/science.  When the decision was announced and taken to make the film in New Zealand the many impute/contributions we had to make and made. Again it is a discipline/Science. Then Plan and decision of former President JR Mancham to build his House at Glacis Sur Mer , the Balkan Wars, the announcement to put into place the RIM Association - the announcement of Google and Yahoo Search engine. The debacle of David Koresh, the Temple Solair in Belgium, France and Canada. This is that Emblem/coat of Arms- Fatma just as we eat a good achard and pimant confi in old Sechelles Seychelles - I/we studied a great deal about South African heraldry/heraldic - the concept and making of  one of the important coat of Arms and emblem - the important correlation. As such JR Tolken origin, our ancestral Hugenot/French - this work have impacted many important issues about South Africa sine 1991 and President Mandela, the ANC knew about it and President Jacob Zuma and Thabo Mbeki and we have a South  African Presidential election - going on. Some of these issues impacted President Clinton Office - Then Russian Royal, heraldic/heraldry process - those who know and ought to know - recall, What about the issues of the EU and that  Maastricht Treaty - Wikipedia thank you we have your info today. We need events and development of Wikipedia on Europe royalty in 1992/93 -

In spite of the fact that we/it required the approval and consent of then President FA Rene - the due process and Benchmark. We went to Seychelles in 2000 and produced the first T shirt at the Jivan Family Print shop facing the Immaculate Conception Cathedral and Meghjee shop - we took it in a large envelope and whent to the President Private Lawyer and underlined,  stressed to see to it that it is Handed to the President in Person.
