    Been rumors about Julius Malema for many years trying to start a civil war in SA but the rhetoric in his speeches seems to be getting stronger. South african politics is definitely one of the most volatile in the world atm. So much racial tension is about to rear its head in the not so distant future. Well worth a read.

    have you lived in South Africa before? You should know that the Anc is in power and Malema is only a small fish. They expelled him from ANC and took away his shit. Malema is no threat

    Unless you want to join these dudes that believe there is a white genocide in south africa.

    yea i have lived in sa for a couple of years (was there during the whole Terreblanche killing). Malemas new party is now fully registered and will be running in the elections and despite being a small fish, he has over 1000 highly motivated members already. Anc were obviously unsettled enough to file a complaint about their registration. they will never get into power but i do think they have enough to at least destabilize the country. it was no secret that there were some serious and growing racial tensions when i was there, Black students are picked over white students over uni places etc. and it is only getting worse. Just out of interest have you seen how many political assassinations have occurred in SA in the last couple of years alone?

    Allot of South Africans I have met over the last couple of years are expecting a bloody and rapid deterioration once Mandela has died - so much racism out there from both sides, i think it probably will get allot worse before it gets better, and its pretty horrific for many there now.

    yep there is genuine fear for 'the night of the long knives'. A lot of my friends are either planning to leave or preparing in any way necessary.. http://another-day.co.za/uhuru-the-night-of-the-long-knives-is-almost-upon-us/

    Yep.... and..... the best Prime Minister candidate at the moment is a White Woman. Guaranteed to kick dust in the air among all the people.
