Weg met Regstellende Aksie!!

Affirmative Action

As die idiote in hierdie land nog nie kan raaksien en agterkom net HOE erg regstellende aksie ons land opneuk nie, dan gaan hulle lyk dit my van nou af maar moet VOEL! Hierdie is nou die 2de saak wat hof toe gaan en ek hoop hierdie keer word daar nie net buite die hof geskik nie, maar dat die saak offisieel gewen word!

Polisievrou se saak oor bevordering gaan ook in die arbeidshof draai

Nóg ’n saak waarin ’n wit polisie-offisier weens haar velkleur bevordering na ’n sleutelpos geweier is en die pos daarna jare lank vakant gelos is, word binnekort in die arbeidshof aangehoor.

Die hof sal dus tog gevra word om te besluit of regstellende aksie belangriker is as dienslewering, het mnr. Dirk Hermann, adjunkhoof van Solidariteit, gesê. Dié vakbond voer die saak namens die offisier, kapt. Renate Barnard.

Die eerste verhoor van dié aard, waarin vier wit forensiese wetenskaplikes in die polisie die weiering van hul bevordering betwis het, sou aanstaande maand begin, maar die SAPD het aangebied om dit buite die hof te skik.

In Barnard se saak het die destydse polisiehoof, komm. Jackie Selebi, self ingegryp en haar aanstelling in ’n nuwe sleutelpos in die SAPD se nasionale inspektoraat, die klagte-ondersoekafdeling, in Pretoria, verbied.

’n Keuringspaneel het Barnard twee keer aangewys as die beste kandidaat vir die pos van superintendent in die inspektoraat, wat geskep is om diens aan die publiek te verbeter.

Die inspektoraat ontvang klagtes oor dienslewering van die publiek en ondersoek dit.

Die pos is in September 2005 geadverteer. Barnard het saam met verskeie ander kandidate daarvoor aansoek gedoen. Die keuringspaneel het ná onderhoude ’n punt van 86,67% aan haar toegeken. Dit was 17,5% meer as die punt wat hulle aan die enigste ander ernstige kandidaat, ene kapt. Shibambu, toegeken het.

Die paneel het bevind die verskil tussen Barnard en Shibambu is só groot dat dienslewering in gedrang sou wees as Shibambu die pos kry.

Hulle het dit aan Barnard toegeken, maar die afdelingskommissaris, ene asst.komm. Rasegatla, het besluit die pos moet weens regstellende aksie nie gevul word nie.

Die pos is egter ’n jaar later weer geadverteer en Barnard het weer daarvoor aansoek gedoen.

’n Keuringspaneel het weer beslis sy is die enigste realistiese kandidaat wat die pos kan behartig.

Rasegatla het dié keer besluit dit moet aan haar toegeken word.

Nogtans het Selebi haar aanstelling afgekeur op grond daarvan dat dit nie regstellende aksie sou bevorder nie. Hy het die pos toe afgeskaf.

Barnard is steeds ’n kaptein en beklee dié rang nou reeds 12 jaar lank.

Die arbeidshof in Johannesburg sal die saak van 16 November aanhoor.

Ter Nagedagtenis – 9/11

Dis nou al 7 jaar terug en nogsteeds, elke keer wat ek kyk na die foto’s of enige video materiaal, kry ek ‘n knop in my keel vir die waansin van daardie dag…hoe enige mens so iets kan beplan en actually uitvoer en dan nog “brag” daaroor, gaan my verstand te bowe…wonder of Amerika ooit tot ruste sal kom en of hulle Bin Laden sal kry? Ek twyfel sterk…

Many find it hard to accept the official version of what happened on 9/11

More than 50 per cent of people reject the official belief that the attacks on the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, were carried out by al-Qaeda, a new survey has revealed.

The findings, released late on Wednesday, suggest that the official version of events – that the attacks, which killed more than 2,900 people and sparked the US so-called “war on terror”, were carried out by al-Qaeda – is still a long way from being generally accepted.

Only 46 per cent of respondents named al-Qaeda, while 25 per cent said they did not know and 15 per cent said the US government was behind the attacks.

Steven Kull, the director of WorldPublicOpinion.org, which carried out the survey, told Al Jazeera: “Broadly what this says is that there is a lack of confidence with the United States and so people mistrust the narrative the US puts forward.”

Officially, hijackers took control of four passenger aircraft in the September 11 attacks. Two of the aeroplanes crashed into the World Trade Centre in New York and the “Twin Towers” subsequently collapsed, bringing down two other buildings nearby. The third aircraft hit the Pentagon while the fourth is said to have crashed in a field in Pennsylvania.

Kull’s organisation asked more than 16,000 people world wide “Who do you think was behind the 9/11 attacks?”, leaving the question open-ended.

 

The 2001 attacks prompted the so-called US ‘war on terror’

Blaming Israel

While a substantial number of those polled believed the US government was in some way behind the attacks, seven per cent point the finger at Israel.

 
 

Of the countries surveyed, Egypt and Jordan had the highest percentages of people who believed Israel was behind the attack, polling 43 and 31 per cent respectively. Nineteen per cent of those polled in the Palestinian territories claimed Israel was in some way responsible.

“In Muslim countries – where we’ve carried out a number of focus groups – it’s clear there is a feeling that the US had some kind of motivation, such as invading Iraq,” Kull said.

“There are also some difficulties with the idea that Muslims carried out attacks on civilians – which is widely seen as wrong and contrary to Islam… And there are plenty of people in Muslim countries who say it would have been too technically difficult [for al-Qaeda] to pull off.”

In Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, a majority 57 per cent said they did not know who was behind the attacks. Only five per cent said that Israel had been involved.

‘Conspiracy theorists’

In 2002, the US government set up the 9/11 commission, chaired by Thomas Kean, a former governor of New Jersey, to investigate the event. It published its report in 2004, concluding that the 19 hijackers were all members of al-Qaeda. It also concluded that there had been intelligence failures on the part of the CIA and the FBI, the US’s spy agencies.

But the World Trade Centre attacks quickly proved fertile ground for “conspiracy theorists” and sceptics have a wide range of alternative theories to choose from – including that US military personnel were involved in the attack or that the towers were brought down with the help of a controlled explosion.

“There are people who are saying that US soldiers were flying the planes … or people who say simply that the US government turned a blind eye to the threat or that they somehow got them to do it through some means,” said Kull.

One of the proponents of an alternative version of the events has been Willis Carto, editor of the American Free Press newspaper, which frequently points the finger of blame at Israel.

He told Al Jazeera the attacks were “perpetrated by the Israeli Mossad [secret service] in conjunction with the American government”.

“There’s no real evidence whatsoever that the official story of the planes smashing into the building was true. It’s impossible to believe that a few furtive little characters armed with box cutters who had no idea how to fly … could have manouvred the planes like this,” Carto said.

“There are so many holes in the story that no one in his right mind can believe it.”

Classroom politics

Those who expound alternative versions of the events have themselves become the targets for debunking. Loose Change, a popular series of internet videos that counters the official version of events, has itself inspired a blog called Screw Loose Change.

 
 

Reports in engineering publications have sought to counter alternative theories that say the towers could not have collapsed as they did simply by being hit by an aircraft.

In 2007, research by Keith Seffen, a senior lecturer in Cambridge University’s engineering department, used analysis of an engineering model to show the tower collapse had been “quite ordinary and natural”.

The US has also seen the debate enter the university classroom.  Both Ward Churchill, of the University of Colorado, and Kevin Barrett, of the University of Wisconsin, provoked a public outcry over the fact they professed to believe alternative versions of the events.

Their critics feared the academics might be tempted to bring there beliefs into the classroom. Their supporters said that even if they did, a university classroom was the place for alternative theories.

‘Structural failure’

Michael Newman, from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (Nist), which worked for several years on reports about how and why the World Trade Centre towers collapsed, told Al Jazeera the debate was unlikely to ever go away.

“Whenever we put out one of our reports, we get phone calls and emails from those with alternative views,” he said.

“And you always get a lot of interest around the time of the anniversary – it’s a part of history now.

The Nist reports say the towers’ collapse was due to “structural failure” after the aeroplanes hit them. The reports have been welcomed by building code regulators and many of Nist’s recommendations from its investigations have been adopted, but those with alternative viewpoints have continued to dispute the organisation’s findings.

“We’ve heard opinions from all sides,” Newman told Al Jazeera.

“At the end of the day, people are entitled to their own opinions and we probably won’t be able to convince them otherwise.”

 

Korrupsie onder metropolisielede – Rapporteer hulle ook!!

Daniëlla du Plooy

Die teenmisdaadnetwerk eBlockwatch het ’n spesiale noodlyn geskep waar korrupsie onder metropolisielede aangemeld kan word om dié euwel te help voorkom.

Dit kom ná ’n berig verlede week in Beeld oor ’n 21-jarige student wat na bewering deur metropolisielede geteister is.

Volgens die vrou, wat uit vrees nie geïdentifiseer wou word nie, het die metropolisielede in uniform en in ’n gemerkte bakkie haar Sondag 27 Julie omstreeks 03:10 in Beyers Naudérylaan voorgekeer.

“Ek het gevra of hulle geld wil hê. Die een het aangehou sê sy kollega gaan nie gelukkig wees om my net so te laat gaan nie.

“Daar was ’n besliste seksuele ondertoon, maar ek het my dom gehou en nooit daarop gereageer nie.”

Beeld én eBlockwatch is sedertdien oorval deur lesers wat in soortgelyke situasies was.

Talle het gekla dat die 10111-nommer telkens beset was wanneer hulle probeer bel het en die voorval wou aanmeld of metropolisielede se besonderhede deurgee.

Volgens mnr. André Snyman, stigter van eBlockwatch, is dié noodlyn gister geskep om mense te help.

Sodra jy die nommer bel, begin dit opneem totdat jy weer neersit. Die idee is dat gebruikers die metropolisielede wat jou afgetrek het se inligting (hul motorregistrasienommer, hul naam, rang en magsnommer) gee sodra jy vir omkoopgeld gevra word of onraad vermoed.

Die opname word dan op eBlockwatch se stelsel gestoor en kan later as bewyse gebruik word.

Die nommer is 082 236 0003.

 Nog ‘n initiatief wat ons maar kan hoop sal help om die ouens vas te vang wat besig is met hierdie misdade waar hulle veronderstel is om ons te beskerm! Waar is die dae toe mens nog kon weet die polisie is betroubaar en sal jou help, nie verdere skade aandoen nie. Ek ry maar deesdae nie veel rond op my eie nie, ek en manlief gaan maar orals saam, of ons bly by die huis. Ons is eenvoudig net te bang – te bang ‘n padvark bots in ons vas, te bang ons word deel van die statistieke van misdaad. Te bang ‘n metropolisielid trek ons af en probeer ons “bribe” of gee ons ‘n kaartjie van ‘n oortreding wat ons NIE gepleeg het nie. Waar en wanneer gaan dit ophou, indien ooit??

Ns, het JY al ‘n padvark aangekla? Kyk my vorige post. Ek het al 2 ouens rapporteer. Of dit gaan help, weet mens nie maar ek reken mens moet probeer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rapporteer daai padvark!

Dis mos nou iets wat ek beslis gaan doen! K*k gaan die taxi’s k*k..ek hoop?! Ek gaan vir my ‘n klein notaboekie in my kar sit met ‘n pen by, en as ek ‘n padvark sien (veral elke oggend oppad werk toe is daar ‘n paar) en ek gaan hulle aanmeld! Lekker!!!!

Jaagduiwels en padvarke kan nou ook op Arrive Alive se webwerf deur ander motoriste verkla word.
‘n Waarskuwingsbrief word aan die eienaar van die voertuig gestuur nadat Arrive Alive ‘n klag ontvang het.
Ná drie waarskuwingsbriewe kan motoriste strafregtelik aangekla word.
Volgens mnr. Ran?thoko Rakgoale, uitvoerende hoof van die padverkeersbestuurskorporasie (RTMC), word die eienaar van die voertuig wat aangemeld is in die brief van die beweringe teen hom ingelig.
Eienaars word aangeraai om hul optrede op die pad te verbeter as hulle self bestuur het. As iemand anders bestuur het, word die eienaar gevra om die beweringe onder die bestuurder se aandag te bring.
Eienaars word ook die keuse gegee om ‘n verklaring na die korporasie te stuur as hulle reken die bewerings is ongeldig. Die verklaring word dan saam met die aanvanklike klag op ‘n databasis geplaas.
Rakgoale het gister gesê mense wie se name ‘n derde keer op die databasis verskyn, kan strafregtelik aangekla word as daar getuies is wat bereid is om teen hulle te getuig.
Die departement van vervoer moedig motoriste ook met oorhoofse elektroniese borde op hoofweë aan om swak bestuur aan te meld.
Die woorde “Report bad driving” met ‘n telefoonnommer flikker gereeld op dié borde.
Volgens mnr. Collen Msibi, woordvoerder van die departement van vervoer, moet mense wat iemand aanmeld hul persoonlike besonderhede en adres verskaf om te verseker dat beskuldigings nie uit persoonlike vetes spruit nie.
Msibi het gesê gereelde klagte sluit in rooi verkeersligte wat verontagsaam word, motoriste wat jaag en mense wat onveilig verbysteek.
‘n Aansienlike aantal klagte oor busse, taxi’s en vragmotors is al ontvang, maar veral bestuurders van busse en vragmotors slaan ag daarop as hulle briewe ontvang, volgens Msibi.

Artikel van CNN.com

UNITED NATIONS (CNN) — The United States may soon put forward a U.N. Security Council draft resolution that would slap U.N. sanctions on Zimbabwe’s long-time president, Robert Mugabe, and 11 senior members of his government.

The sanctions would impose a travel ban on Mugabe and the others, would freeze many of their assets, and would impose an international arms embargo on the regime.

The push for U.N. sanctions comes after Mugabe ignored the Security Council’s appeal to postpone last week’s presidential runoff election in Zimbabwe.

Mugabe was sworn in for another term as Zimbabwe’s president after Friday’s presidential runoff. The vote was widely derided by international leaders as a “sham” because his only opponent, Morgan Tsvangirai, had withdrawn from the race citing widespread violence, intimidation, and vote-rigging.

The draft U.N. resolution expresses “deep concern at the gross irregularities during the June 27 presidential election, the violence and intimidation perpetrated in the run-up to the election that made impossible the holding of free and fair elections, and the creation of an environment that did not permit international election observers to operate freely before the June 27 vote.”

The United Kingdom has been a harsh critic of Mugabe and is a chief backer of the U.S. push for sanctions. John Sawers, the British ambassador to the United Nations, has called the situation in Zimbabwe dire.

“We need to make clear that the views of the Zimbabwean people as expressed in the last elections that was reasonably free and fair, the one of the 29th of March, needs to be respected,” Sawers said.

British Prime Minister Gordon Brown on Wednesday said Mugabe “has blood on his hands” after the violence leading up to last week’s election and should step down.

It was unclear if and when there will be a Security Council vote on the U.S.-drawn resolution. South Africa, China and Indonesia, among others, are concerned the United Nations is interfering in a member country’s electoral process.

Tsvangirai on Wednesday rejected an African Union decision to keep South Africa’s president alone in charge of efforts to resolve Zimbabwe’s political crisis, news services reported.

Speaking to reporters at his home in Harare, Zimbabwe’s capital, Tsvangirai said his group would not participate in talks about forming a governing accord with Mugabe’s government unless an additional mediator was appointed, The Associated Press reported.

The opposition leader’s comments came a day after an AU summit reconfirmed South Africa President Thabo Mbeki as mediator.

Tsvangirai has repeatedly called on Mbeki to step down from his mediation role, saying Mbeki’s refusal to publicly criticize Mugabe amounts to appeasement. Mugabe has extolled Mbeki’s role.

Ek hoop rêrig die UN voer dit uit sodat Mugabe sy gat kan sien! Maar, is dit genoeg? Gaan dit help? Daai man moet verhoor word en opgesluit word en die sleutel moet weggegooi word! Zimbabwe gaan nooit regkom solank as wat daai man die president is nie. Mugabe en al sy trawante moet verwyder word.

 

Mugabe – Die Moordenaar-Tiran van Afrika

Zimbabwe votes in Mugabe election

The people of Zimbabwe are going to the polls in the second round of a presidential election in which Robert Mugabe is the only candidate.

The opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, withdrew from the contest because of violence and intimidation against his supporters.

He has urged them to vote to protect themselves from further attacks.

Mr Mugabe has ignored several calls from other African leaders to postpone the poll.

The latest was from the government of Nigeria – Africa’s most populous nation – which said it was doubtful that a credible election could be held in the present circumstances.

Earlier Mr Mugabe brushed aside calls for the election to be postponed or called off and said his party Zanu-PF would continue to rule the country as they believed it should be ruled.

Reports suggested Zanu-PF membership cards were selling for huge sums of money on the black market.

Robert Mugabe says he remains “open to discussion”
Those buying the cards believe they will offer some protection from attack by militias, a BBC correspondent reports.

Mr Mugabe came second to Mr Tsvangirai in the first round of the presidential vote in March.

Since then, the MDC says some 86 of its supporters have been killed and 200,000 forced from their homes by militias loyal to Zanu-PF.

The government blames the MDC for the violence, and on Thursday the police accused Britain and the US of backing MDC plans to disrupt Friday’s voting.

“There is information that the United Kingdom and the United States of America are planning to use the MDC and civic organisations and others to stage violent demonstrations in order to disrupt the presidential run-off elections due tomorrow,” said Senior Assistant Commissioner Faustino Mazango.

Mr Mugabe went further, saying he had no quarrel with the British people, but with those in “number 10, Downing Street” – the official address of UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown.

“The demons in number 10, Downing Street, must be exorcised by someone,” he said.

Regional leaders – including from Nigeria, the Southern African Development Community (Sadc) and the African Union – have called on Mr Mugabe to postpone the vote and negotiate with the opposition.

While he said he planned to attend an African Union summit in Egypt next week, Mr Mugabe said the AU had “no right in dictating to us what we should do with our constitution, and how we should govern this country”.

Role of military

He told supporters during Thursday’s Harare rally that he was not interested in the opinions of the rest of the world.

“Do not take any risk. It’s not worth it. This government is illegitimate. It will remain so “

Election: At a glance

“I would rather the world left us in peace. Sanctions, well, let them continue with their sanctions, but we will find our way of existing,” said Mr Mugabe.

But he suggested negotiations with the MDC were possible.

“Should we emerge victorious, which I believe we will, sure we won’t be arrogant, we will be magnanimous and say ‘let’s sit down and talk,'” he said.

Mr Tsvangirai has said negotiations would not be possible if Mr Mugabe went ahead with the run-off.

He said Zimbabwe’s army was preparing to force people to vote in massive numbers for Mr Mugabe.

African voices on Zimbabwe’s poll crisis

Speaking to the BBC’s World Update programme, Mr Tsvangirai said his supporters should vote if necessary to avoid violent reprisals.

“Do not take any risk. It’s not worth it. This government is illegitimate. It will remain so.”

One MDC supporter in Harare told the BBC’s Africa Have Your Say programme that he definitely would not vote because the MDC had not been given a fair chance to campaign.

A BBC contributor in the southern town of Masvingo said army chief-of-staff Major General Engelbert Rugeje told a rally that his soldiers would force members of the public to go and vote for Mr Mugabe.

“We are soldiers who do not ask for things, but force things,” Maj Gen Rugeje said. “On Friday, we are going to make sure that you go and vote not for a person of your choice, but Mugabe.”

Villagers have also described how they have been ordered to feign arm injuries so they can be assisted in polling booths by Zanu-PF supporters, who will ensure they vote for Mr Mugabe.

 Wat ‘n klug!!! Hoe kan jy dit even ‘n election noem jou dom twat! Hoe kan jy mense forseer om vir jou te vote!? Dan is dit mos nie ‘n election nie??!?!?!

Mugabe leef in ‘n droomwêreld wat hy, die siek in die kop poephol vir homself geskep het. Hy het geen gewete nie, hy kan obviously nie worry of die mense happy is met hom of sy regering nie. En HOE die hel kan hy dink dat die wêreld net moet stilsit en toekyk hoe hy sy eie mense martel? Ek wens Amerika, seeing dat hulle so lekker arrogant kan wees, hul troepe instuur en daai man van kant maak! Summier, one shot, ‘n doodskoot asb!

En hoe kan ENIGEIEMAND hom ondersteun? Ek was nog nooit in my lewe SO teleurgesteld in ons regering, en spesifiek, Mbeki soos nou nie. Die bietjie wat hy doen en sê, is slapgat en so ontwykend, dis asof hy bang is om op te staan teen Mugabe, want hy is so diep in sy g-a-t-h-o-l opgekruip dis nie eens snaaks nie! Ook maar goed jy gaan nie meer vir lank ONS president wees nie…ek hoop net Zuma leef op tot sy beloftes en hy doen wat Mbeki nie ‘n ruggraat voor het nie…

Ek kry die mense in Zimbabwe, veral die MDC ondersteuners, bitter, bitter jammer…
