Why bother come and live in South Africa: Well Here is Why.

I love my country who doesn’t really. I mean South Africa is really great place…At least if you from Africa, like I am. Unlike many an African babies, lucky baby Gift was born in Swaziland, as such never saw even half the things his other brothers saw. Swaziland is very stable…For some, almost stagnant. South Africa on the other is really quite the opposite. Here is why:

The political system.
Africa as a continent is a place of great uncertainty. This is even more so when politics come into the picture. People struggle for almost everything here. A political party that today promises freedom, will, a few years down the line not shy away from raw thievery of their country’s resources. Most of you will probably be quick to remind me of Zuma and Mbeki’s questionable dance steps when it come to money. Mbeki and Zuma are said to have benefited from the 1999 Arms deal…I personally do not know what to believe, especially because both of them denounce the accusations and do so very fiercely (read the Mail & Guardian of 17 April 2015). What I am trying to say is that while both Mbeki and Zuma are no saints, the political system of country is so transparent that it did not and-God help us-will not allow even the country’s president the president the luxury other African head of state enjoy. The luxury of hiding ones dirty small clothes. Go on and try this on the guys ruling Egypt for example.

Social well faire
I never knew of such a word; not whilst I was growing up on King Mswati’s land anyways. To the general public the word social well fare is taken to mean “ taking care of a state’s general public”. I do not want to admit this but the truth is that when it comes to this, Swaziland and yes, 90 percent of Africa’s countries lag far, far behind South Africa.

The state takes care of over fifty five million people! There are dustbins to be collected, bucket system toilets to drain, millions of water liters to be pumped (mostly free of charge) into peoples’ houses, millions upon millions of free RDP houses to be built, a great many, many schools to be built and maintained, a million strong public servant workforce to keep satisfied (with ridiculously high salaries mind you), a highly paid parliament, a bunch of, at times very unreasonable and demanding kings and some of the world’s most questionable leaders who seem to blunder every turn they get.
In short, this is the greatest well fare state I have ever come to know. The country has one of world’s best social welfare systems in the world, as such it receives a great many Swazi, Sotho, Zimbabwean, and Mozambican people coming in to settle in the country.

Business
Compared to the rest of the world, South Africa is a business heaven. It boost of a great many number of things that are-if not lacking-are quiet not there in the rest of Africa. It boosts of a first world infrastructure, a good monetary system, fair tax practice, a variety of natural resources, well trained labor force that competes well with that of the first world’s countries. The policies are favorable to starting, maintaining and competing with other businesses: be it you do so internally or externally. This is all made possible because the country is run on the shoulders of a well conserved, upheld and unchanging (for the past twenty one years at least) constitution that protects the law from manipulation by the people. In my country even kings get prison sentences. What then is a president?
One other thing that pulls Africans to South Africa is that for many an African people, this country is not just a lump of dirt on which millions of people live; it is also a gate way to doing business not only with Africa but also the rest of the world.

The people
There are 55 Million people living and working in South Africa:
78% are black
10% are white
9% are colored
2.5% are Indian
Between us are the following languages;
Sesotho saLeboan9.2%
Setswana, siSwati, Tshivenda, Xitsonga, Afrikaans 14,4%
English 8.6%
IsiNdebele, isiXhosa 17.9%
IsiZulu 22.9
And we also follow the following religions (or is it faiths); Christianity- some mixed with traditional African religion, Traditional African religion, Hindu, Muslim and Jewish, Rastafarism and many more.

Tell me then, who wouldn’t want to come live with us? With all these things to offer who wouldn’t want to come here, and why would we not want to share?
For more of a lay man’s perspective on Africa, South Africa, Swaziland and the tradition and/culture of especially the above two (the Kingdom of Swaziland and the Republic of South Africa), please visit http://www.dearjehovah.wordpress.com or http://www.masiza4000.blogspot.com .
Oh and before you come visit us please take note of the following;
-you need a valid visa, passport or, in the case of Swazis, a travelling document to lawfully enter the country.
-the passport or any of the above should not be in risk of invalidity for at least a period of three months.
-The state will give you fourteen to thirty stay days, visas may take longer than three months to even up to three years depending on the type of visa specified.

Thanks for reading!

If you were here

If you were here I wouldn’t be here.
My dignity would not be trampled over so
By children
My soul wouldn’t be so sour over little things
And my haert wouldn’t be so heavy over
Lose of so meaningless a thing as is my sense of self.

I am a nobody,
I know that.
A dog’s being is better than mine
And its broken haert is of far greater value than mine:
I know that.
But even a dog has a coat on it.
Am I that naked now that you gone?

Why Jehovah orderd the Israelites to destroy the Acient people of Canaan?

It is argued that the Lord God Jehovah is a cruel vengeful God.

I have been reading much of the old books and a few Scriptures,both cannonical and non cannonical. I grew up asking questions. One of such questions is why did God order the Israelites to kill-even at genocidal level-all the people who inhabitate the land of Canaan in those days?
The most obvious answere given is that the Israelites were an ivading stateless question. As such they had to kill those nations to have themselves a country. That is true offcourse but it is not the only reason. You see, the land of Canaan was populated north South by the Giants of old. You might recall that the book of Genesis (maybe in passing) mentions the Nephilim, Giants born of Angels and Human women. Now the Canaan Giants were giants as well. They are a people said have been in the land for years. They built cities,had kingdoms and married women as much the average man. They were in every way human.

Back to topic. The Nations whom the Israelites found in the land were human in every way. They only had one problem: They were unpure. They sinned much, they were after strange flesh,they were unjust and they had a DNA not entirely human. Why? Well because they were sons of Rapha, a reminant of the Nephilim and as such they had to die because,I dare argue,in God’s eyes we would very soon be back square one: the flood.

This is a short version of a much bigger post I will post on #BLOG http://www.dearjehovah.wordpress.com.
It is about time we Witness for Jehovah’s goodness.

Without you

Life the sticky mess poems and everything.

I try to sleep
Without your hand
I try to close these mine eyes
Without your lips
Carasing my heart
Without your beat
Beating
Calming this my soul;
Helping me
Bringing me bliss,
Singing softy,
Ever so softly
Tenderly;
Ever so tenderly.
I try to dream you,
I imagine you;
Envision you
But soon run out of stregnth
God!
Finding someone like you is futile
You are every thing to me
Your love is my drug
Your smile my eleaxer
And your hand my life.
Should you decide to
Leave
I’ll die.

Bringing home a white makoti(bride)

Being who Iam,I do not usualy do things because Im forced to…I like acting simply out of self initialisation.That is what life is for me.And that is what it should be for all of us.Unfortunately,it is not so.
Sometime earlier on last year(2011) I got myself into watching doctor Phils show(year,the buld one).30mins down the show there came a couple.One black, one white:lovely I said to my self..unaware of the absence of wedding rings on their fingures.A time latter,I laughed my lungs out,I learnt they werent married because even though black/white couples are by law provided with marriage rights,the marriage vestees did not officiate their wedding since,and I quote,such usualy brings the offsprings into a troubled existance.God!
What impunity! There so called Land of the brave and free is still battling with chains of slavery? I for one never thought such that such things-in such days as are today-are still there:chaining people to think and behave in such old mandane ways.Even in such high strung,sophisticated worlds as is the one in the United States of America!
In trueth wonders never cease.

Comming close to home…I asked myself once:would it be nice to get myself(or should I say me and the Miss) to get something different? Obviously,yes.But would it be wise?
In trueth..I think not.Idealy there shouldnt be much scurf of when one plays with this idea but since we have a not so nice history between the colours,it is a very troublesome cause for concern.
1.What will she say shoul I being black..approach her?
2.How exactly am I to approach.Is she to be madam or lucy the lovely girl next door I cant shake off my usualy dirty head?
3.What will the parrents think.Will I be a brother inlaw and is she to be friends with my people-a Makoti?
4.If so,how are we to live..free partnership or pyramidal?
4.Far will I assimilate into her culture..is she to assimilate mine e.t.c.?

By jove I hope I come not into such a predicament.I know full well the chains of colour based slavery is not yet a thing of the past..we still are controled both She and I.
The best yet to do is,to some level,conform with what our two not so diffent worlds dictate.
Eish.

Man:a ladys beast.

KwaZulu-Natal is a beutiful country(it’s actualy a province)
We have almost everything here.Including quite ladies.

You might be thinking that being modern times,the life of the average Natal girl is very much improved.Unfortunatetly,modernity only gave us more problems.And a large chunk of those problems directs itself to the girls here.Especialy those of Bantu decent.People here still have it in their heads that a ladys place is in the kitchen..to be frank I do myself.The Bantu still hold it that a woman without child is no woman at all,here life is such that if a girl child speaks strongly-she is more a man than shes woman.Therefore,a threat to man.No man is to wed a rich maiden,no woman is to be chief to her fathers tribe and no woman is to comand respect as much as do man.

If wed,the lady is not to hit the hell out of her wife if she is to be repected:man on ther hand punch bag their wifes,sisters and daughters every night.Some even denote it as a sign of love.We are a people given to belittling women.You could even say its in our nature.

Bull@?!>*#®!!! There is no such thing.We must change.The system must change.Woman are ouselves.We are woman.They were taken from us-and we from them.How then are we so given to bag punching them,side-slaping them,snarling at them,force entering them and even strangling them to the death-both of ourselves and of theirs.If we are to be in this state for a time-we are to be soon an extict people.
Already,women folk are not given into trusting man.Soon there wont be any love for us.For we would be beasts to them.The load is too much.

We man must do away with the lion in us and embrance the cuddley bear.
Bye!

Mine own Time. A poem born of prayer. 20/01/2014

Dear me
It is time I reclaim the dreams and
aspirations I have forgone,
It seems my hardships are now
Simpley being taken away
The vision is still there.
The wish is still there
And my heart:
My dear fragile haert.
Still beats
And beats in still crys
In sync with that painstaking inner cry
Of that voice
I know not from wherence it comes.
But still dear Jah
I must listen to.
There is no other choice!
It is finally mine own time.

It is hard work being woman in Zululand.

I have always thoght it an easier feat being a girl…Poor me:D
Two days ago a lady friend of mine came by my house for a nice long anticipated visit (lucky bastard I here you say:-]) I have been asking for for over two to three years..god how nice.

I am quite sure you have, by now gotten right into the obvious answer..I do not know of what an American friend would think but on account of my highly learned but un-acultured friend,who is Zulu there would only be two in sourced out comes to this kind of arrangement, given she-my lady friend,would have disappeared into my so leaning house. 1. I would have lost a friend and 2. would gained one very beautiful, mouth watering and very much needed girlfriend. Sorry ladies but you are mouth watering sometimes.

Fortunately non of them above thingys took place..some people are not that dirty.
One question though, what would we be saying would Gift and his friend had disappeared into the house,stayed there for 2 to 3hrs and walked out happy and holding hands? The answer is simple..we would speculated, concluded and extrapolated loads of trueths and full lies about what occured and happened and (most important) to whom by who.
Boy do we have math theorist out there. And guese who is most likely to get all the ticks and all them bad crosses-my lady friend. For the act of enrering a boys house, all these questions and answers in relation to a girls personality are drawn. She sudenly is given all them negatives. She is a whore, a she-dog,lose canon,prostitute and man eater.
God do we toture them poor ladies.

In a class of 50 South African girls, 70% of all those floewers fracle and die becuse we crush them out. We rape,belittle,shame and batter them down to dust,
Who are we realy.
Sadists,rapists and moster canibals?
If we be non of these things then who are we realy…Singo bani?
I ask this becuase such things as we, we human do are simply unknown to animals. You will never find an animal rape another. You will never see an animal bating another for the others refute to sex. Yet we human do it. Relantlessly.
We abuse girls so much that I have begun to wish I were a part of the abused sex.

To my mothers,daughters,sisters,girlfriends and lady friends..You strong ladies…But you do have to be donkeys.Not any more.[IMGRIGHT=http://files.myopera.com/Goose1/blog/005.jpg]

Dear Jehovah 15/01/2014

It is no easy feat being human.
I have been sitting on my bed the whole night.Well I won’t indulge you on what I was doing bt it quet a thing fround upon by many a man but encouraged by many a worried mothers world over!

You see,sleeping alone every night and doing nothing but that has got very good advantages these days.
HIV-AIDS and her croenings aren’t kiding around my dear.Especialy in my beloved countries…Swaziland,the Switzerland of Africa is by far the No.1 most affected country world wide. South Africa,Mandela’s home is right at Swaziland’s heels and boost of major HIV related anoucements ever made in modern day popular culture. Our Mbeki era Minister of Health used to say we better use African potatoes portion to fight off HIV. HIV NGOs were busy trying to pressure President Mbeki’s goverment to do the simplest thing pausible to fight the disease. That is to allow free flow of ARVs and thus save many of my people’s lives.
Eventualy they curved in,understood and gave them pills for Free.Then came the stigma fight.

I do hope you go on protecting those who listen.
Thank you.
