Kaizer Chiefs beat SuperSport United at FNB Stadium

Posted: 13 April 2011 Time: 21:33

Kaizer Chiefs beat SuperSport United 2-0 at FNB Stadium on Wednesday evening to ensure they remain in the League title race.

Goals from Knowledge Musona and Reneilwe Letsholonyane either side of the break saw the Amakhosi pick up the points, leaving them just three behind log leaders Orlando Pirates and Ajax Cape Town.

United now find themselves in a relegation dog-fight, but they only have themselves to blame after yet again failing to make their dominance count.

SuperSport did start a little slowly and fell behind in the 15th minute when Musona found the back of the net. Letsholonyane won the ball in midfield and played a swift pass to Siphiwe Tshabalala, who cleverly slipped the ball through to Musona and left him with only Rowen Fernandez to beat, which he did with ease.

After that SuperSport found their footing and almost hit back immediately through Fikru Tefera, but he was denied by a fantastic save from Itumeleng Khune.

As the half progressed United’s presence became more pronounced and they certainly ended the stronger of the two sides.

The second half was more of the same and saw United with the lion’s share of possession.

But the closest they came to finding an equaliser was in the 70th minute when Thabo September attacked down the right and whipped an inviting cross into the box. Magogi Gabonamong did well to rise between two defenders to meet the ball with his head, but his effort went inches wide.

Two minutes before full-time the result was put beyond doubt when Letsholonyane found Chiefs’ second goal.

A quick counter-attack saw Abia Nale break down the left before providing a pass to Yeye, who made no mistake from the edge of the area, though Fernandez should have done better.

Even open minded white people like Dave know stupid Lindiwe Mazibuko(went to UCT to BA arts??hence shesn't smart) plus other stoogies are just used by tha DA to gain black support.

The DA leadership is like a slow-motion train wreck!
This pathetic attempt at trying to window-dress the DA as the "new black" shows how desperate the media is to paint the DA in a positive light! LOL
How the DA originated as a party is the biggest problem since their membership is derived largely from the old National Party (NP) - past voting patterns http://southafricana.blogspot.com/2010/12/myth-of-da-liberalism.html are prove that a leopard can't change its spots.

The existence of the DA, whose leadership is still dominated by whites TWO DECADES after independence, actually places our entire democracy at risk by its hijacking of the role of an opposition party by self-proclaiming itself to be the "official opposition" party. The DA can never shed its NP baggage!

A vibrant multi-party democracy needs an opposition party that is representative of ALL South Africans. Cope came close to an official opposition party but is unfortunately still beset with internal squabbles. Dave Harris on March 25, 2011, 7:47 am

DA’s Cape is a white homeland
Published: 2011/0104/11 07:48:42 AM

I had the pleasure of watching Miss L Mazibuko debate some matter of individual freedom with veteran African National Congress MP Ben Turok. She is definitely not wanting when it comes to intellect, but I find her outlook on race matters similar to an Oreo biscuit that has been dipped in milk for too long (a bit wishy washy).

Her response (DA can be trusted, Letters, January 27) to Dr Lucas Ntyintyane (Vote for failure! Letters, January 25) was well written but it turned a blind eye to issues that have scared people off the idea of voting for the DA.

The matter that I think really needs some deep consideration is the reality of the white homeland that the Western Cape is becoming. The DA has ignored reports and calls to review its stance on black empowerment and transformation. Personally I understand the pickle they find themselves in. On the one hand you have a white following that supports your party just as long as you don’t venture too far out with ideas of empowering the indigenous people of this country. On the other hand, you have an uncaptured mass market of black voters whom you need but are not willing to sacrifice for for the bird in the hand.

Perhaps one day, Ms Mazibuko, you can, as eloquently as you usually do, engage us on the possibility of you taking a definitive stance on transformation, a stance that will see the Western Cape become more representative — instead of being a microcosmic flashback of years past where blacks and coloureds stay in townships while the splendid beauty that is the Cape is enjoyed by a lily- white few.

The trueth is dear Lindie Cape Town is the most racist city in SA, take it from me(born and bred in Cape Town). Even Architects, Engineers etc..agree that Ctn was design in a SEPARIST manner where non whites especially blacks are still left out of the city's plans.

Cape Town design scenario
1. Whites-They still live close to work,city centre,better services have their own policing system(security co's). Likely to get every job opportunity.They are separated by railroads,freeways,water c****s from NON-WHITES. Thanx to apartheid architects,eng's. Even today most Ctn whities have "SLAVE MASTER MENTALITY".
2. Indians/whiter coloureds-Still live close to all amneties, better services. second choice every job opportunity.They are separated by railroads,freeways,water c****s from Africans,darker coloureds.

3. Africans/some coloureds,incl. immigrants-Still live in THIRD WORLD conditions similar to Kenya's Kibera slum or Congos Kivu. Khayelitsha,Nyanga,Delft,Vrygrond, Masiphumelele,Hangberg etc..are poorest areas in the City. 4th choice for every job opportunity.They are separated by railroads,freeways,water c****s from above race groups.

ALL IN ALL PEOPLE OF MZANSI Cape Town is till racially DIVIDED. Even newspapers like Voice, Cape Times contribute to hate speech towards Africans in particular even Eusebius Mackaizer,IDASA,Max Du Preez are my withnesses on this one. The K--word is still used HEAVILY here in places like Durbanvill,Boathasig,Stellenbosch,Swellendam etc..Even some most of DA members are partly C"Cape Party", Suidlanders etc..
Please check WHITE PRIDE WORLD WIDE bloggs, see how the DA supporters plan to use the non-white vote.

Cape Town still a racist city - study
Feb 22 2011 at 07:12am

By Craig McKune

Cape Town is seen to be hostile to black people, while white people are still being appointed and promoted at rates suggesting "positive discrimination" in their favour, a damning new study has found.

Commissioned by the Employment Equity Programme and conducted by Sabie Surtee and Martin Hall, the report examined 13 Western Cape businesses that together employed about 60 000 people in management positions. It suggested transformation in the Cape was "at best stalled, and perhaps in reverse".

Cape Town, you can keep your mountain

"In all companies participating in this study, African people are under-represented (in management positions) in comparison to their overall contribution to the South African workforce," the researchers wrote. They found black people to almost always be less successful than white people in moving up their career paths, creating what they called an "ebony ceiling".

Looking at employment equity, the companies were losing ground in junior and middle management levels, and this deteriorating equity situation led black people to favour living and working conditions in Gauteng.

This made it more difficult for Western Cape companies to achieve employment equity.

"Bluntly put, it is difficult to see how the participating companies from sectors such as the retail and financial services sectors, who employ large numbers of skilled people, can survive as national businesses if they continue to increase their reliance on white people who themselves constitute less than 10 percent of the South African population," Surtee and Hall wrote.

The study was based on data from interviews with mainly black employees from companies in a variety of sectors including retail, financial services and petro-chemicals. The focus was on management.

In the five retail companies surveyed, 65 percent of top and senior management appointments or promotions went to whites in 2008, but only 10 percent went to black people. At junior management level, 27 percent of the opportunities went to white people and 36 percent to black. Similar patterns were found in the other sectors.

In employee interviews, the researchers found "a broad consensus that Cape Town is hostile to African people" particularly when compared to Johannesburg.

"It's like I have moved 10 or 20 years back," one of the employees said. "Joburg is like so far and Cape Town is so very backward. What I always ask myself, where do the black people work in the Western Cape? I don't see them. You walk in the malls, you walk in the store. It's either coloured or white people. Where are the black people? How do they pay their bills, what are they eating?".

Surtee and Hall reported "marked antagonism" toward coloured employees. "Rather than finding common cause with those who were also victims of discrimination ... many African people interviewed feel that coloured people are their competitors by virtue of race."

Cape Town was "isolating" to those without family or established networks, employees said.

"I would like to hang out with more Capetonians, but they are funny characters. They live in an environment that is peaceful that allows you to be on your own ... It's just Table Mountain and the sea. Joburg has ubuntu," said one.

The situation was worse for black women, the researchers said. "African women are always doubly disadvantaged, having to contend with both race and gender discrimination in their career tracks."

According to Guy Lundy, chief executive of the business think-tank Accelerate Cape Town: "Cape Town has a perception problem. People think it's slow and not good for furthering their careers. It's across race groups, but it's exacerbated if you're black and you're not going anywhere."

Cape Town is still PRE-1994!!!!

I know mtshana that there are black cowards like you who act as if all is well in Mzansi, while our people are still squized by the same forces of pre-94. Max Du Preez on Cape Times the other day said that he admits that most Afrikaners in WC are racist and not pretenders like white English speakers, who prefer using bloggs after working hours to show their racial tendencies. So baba when you leave office ur English speaking collegueas go to WHITE PRIDE WORLD WIDE, SUIDLANDER or SOUTH AFRICA SUCKS!!!Im sure Neil Graig knows these above.
Most DA whities are also members of Cape Party or AWB, feature on these SEPARIST party's web bloogs. IF YOU A MALAYISHA(Hard labour) bro you won't know these things bro ask us we PEN PUSHERS and computer heads.Most of Mzansi blacks are POLITICALLY BANKRUPT!!!Well vukani, this below is a POT that is cooked in Cape Town near where I live(Claremont,Southern suburbs).

Cape Party
Ideology-Separatism (separate whites from rest of SA)

The Cape Party (CAPE) is a political party in South Africa which seeks to use all constitutional and legal means to bring about independence for the Western Cape, Northern Cape (excluding two districts)[1], six municipalities in the Eastern Cape, and one municipality in the Free State.[2]

The party grew out of a Facebook group[3] in 2007,[4] and is led by Jack Miller, who worked as an actor when he first assumed the leadership.[5] In 2009, it had a membership of approximately 1000 people.[5]

It is registered with the Independent Electoral Commission and was on the provincial ballot of the Western Cape in the South African general elections of 2009,[6] where it received 2,552 votes, or 0.13% of the vote.[7] It will stand again for the municipal elections of 2011.[8]

DA stole our posters’
April 1 2011 at 09:34am

The Cape Party says it has lost 2 500 posters in three weeks, and blames the DA, accusing the party of playing dirty tricks and bribing voters. Photo: Candice Chaplin

Staff Writer

IT’S six weeks before the local government elections and a poster war has begun in the city, with one political party accusing another of “being a master of the dark arts” and stealing its posters.

The Cape Party said it had lost 2 500 posters in three weeks, and it blames the DA.

The posters, saying “Declare The Cape Independent”, were on street poles on March 9 while the DA’s were up on March 17.

DA national campaign manager Jonathan Moakes denied the charge and said the party respected the principle of free and fair elections.

Cape Party spokesman Adrian Kay said the DA “was playing dirty tricks” by stealing their posters, and also accused it of bribing voters.

He said reports from Cape Party candidates and activists suggested that their posters had been “replaced” by DA boards.

“The DA is known in political circles as being a master of the dark arts and we strongly suspect that it is they who are responsible for this massive loss,” Kay said.

“The DA’s strategy is to bleed opposition parties dry before election day and then use its corporate-sponsored financial resources (on) voters with food parcels and T-shirts on election day. The Cape Party is committed to having free and fair elections.”

Two weeks ago, the DA sent a formal letter of complaint to the IEC when the Cape Party beat the DA to putting up posters.

“This was rightly rejected by the IEC which pointed out that the Cape Party was in compliance with the DA-led city’s by-law. It simply didn’t read its own by-law, but this shows the DA believes that it was born to rule.”

Moakes said: “We are putting up our own posters, we do not take down the posters of other parties. If they can provide details to validate their claim they should report the matter to the police.”

IEC official Granville Abrahams said they were not aware of reports or complaints about posters being removed.

The earliest Xhosa connections to the Western Cape

This information isn't known by Zille since shes a FOREGNER(Israeli)
to Mzansi. She claims that Xhosas are imported from EC to support ANC and must go back. WELL Mtshana THE IZIKO has our history, Im Zille didn't read this when she made that racist comment. LIKE AN ACADEMIC I HAVE GIVEN YOU A SOURCE: To prove that unlike Zille Im not a LIAR.
Where Im from where they say "uliJuda" you must you're a LIAR.

The earliest Xhosa connections to the Western Cape
Dominant discourse amongst white South Africans and to some extent amongst Coloured people too, tends to portray that the Xhosa are alien recent arrivals in Cape Town. The facts are very different, showing deep kinship ties between Coloured and Xhosa people. There was no Chinese wall between Khoi and amaXhosa as colonial ignorance of local culture and white nationalist propaganda suggested.
In the 1650s at the time of the arrival of Jan van Riebeeck, the Western Cape Quena (Khoi) honoured the Chobona (or Coboqua, or Khoebaha) King as their paramount chief. AmaXhosa visitors and traders frequented Quena camps and intermarriage was widespread.
The Chobona were one of two wealthy mixed Xhosa-Quena polities based in the Eastern Cape and stretching in influence to the Western Cape which they considered to be their lands and was accepted by Quena chieftainships in the Cape Peninsula. (the other was the Gonaqua) This was acknowledged by Jan van Riebeeck in his writings but something that was never acknowledged by modern white historians until the 1980s when some academics finally broke the mould. Van Riebeeck refers to the Khoebaha as ‘supreme ruler of the whole Hottentot (Khoi) race` and ‘overlord of all the kings and chiefs of the country`. The erroneous notion of the Xhosa being alien to African culture in the Western Cape was an ideological construct which emerged much later to justify white claims to land unpopulated by black people who were then magically separated as a ‘race` from Khoi people.

The hierarchy of Quena tribes and clans in the South Western Cape saw the Gorachoqua and other small splinter groups of Peninsulars being subject to the chieftainship of the Goringhaiqua. Of equal status to the Goringhaiqua were the Guriqua also known as the Chariguriqua, and both were subjects of the Chainoqua regional chieftainship. The Chainoqua were extensively intermarried with the amaXhosa. The amaXhosa regularly frequented Chainoqua camps, traded and shared know-how. The Chainoqua, like the Hessequa, Chamqua, Omaqua Attaqua, Caqua and Houtunqua all were subject to the Hamcumqua (or Inqua) King. The Hamcumqua in the Central Cape also had strong Xhosa relationships. From the time of Xhosa monarch Togu (1590-1620) the Hamcumqua in turn honoured the paramount status of the Chobona in the east. Note: This outline does not cover in detail the Namaquas of the North Western Cape except in showing that the Attaqua and other groups also regarded the Hamcumqua and Chobona as paramount authority. But the Namaqua also had strong relationships with the Tswana-Bricqua.
While official histories of the past project that slave labour was used ‘instead of` Khoi labour, it is reported as widespread that in the new territories of Paarl, Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and on frontier farms, farmers supplemented scarce slave labour with Khoi labour. Adam Tas reported in 1705 the use of teams of Khoi men moving from farm to farm to participate in harvesting. Others report on Khoi having children with slaves on their farms. The neat boxes of separation projected by ideologically doctored history unfortunately still resides in many minds and can be found to be widely projected in tourism materials today.
In the period 1652-1700 much of Dutch settler contact with the amaXhosa, other than shipwreck survivors, was through Quena interlocutors. Their initial contacts and agreements were with fairly petty chiefs quite low down in the ranking order. Only in 1867 the King of the Hamcumqua initiated direct contact by sending an emissary to the Cape government. His brother Gaukou of the Hessequa also opened up communication directly with Governor Simon van der Stel. European direct contact with the amaXhosa thereafter replaces the Khoi-Xhosa relationship as the main means by which amaXhosa arrive in the Peninsula. A series of aggressive incursions of Europeans into Xhosa territory began in 1702 with a group of mercenaries and continued over the next two centuries. AmaXhosa would end up as prisoners and pressed labour in Cape Town until the Apartheid regime introduced pass laws and Coloured-White labour preference policies in the Cape after 1948. Far from the oft repeated refrain that Xhosa people only started coming to the Western Cape from the former Bantustans in recent years and should be regarded as aliens, all the evidence shows that the Xhosa have a historical relationship as old as everybody else in the Western Cape.
The incident of 1702 is when fourty-five white mercenaries, (mainly unmarried men from the lower echelons of white society financed by a wealthy farmer) each accompanied by a Khoi servant left Stellenbosch for deep into the eastern interior. They launched an unofficial raid into Xhosa territory killing many Xhosa and Hamcumqua in their path and seized many cattle. It is likely that some prisoners would have been taken as this was common practice for various practical reasons. While officially frowned upon by the VOC authorities many wealthy farmers benefitted from these raids as it improved their breeding stock. The record of this first act of aggression is recorded in the raiders account of the raid entitled ..

Dutch Colonial Period
In 1652 Dutch landed in Cape Town, in 1658 they brought slaves from Bight Of Benin (SW Nigeria), Angola. Most of these ran eastwards to inland and some died. The Dutch later switched their trade to Mozambique,Madagascar,Zanzibar, Because of fears of future attacks as Van Der Stel feared that these Africans who ran away to the eastlands might join existing tribes like Xhosas and might come back to kill them.
They then brought Asians slaves from Malaysia,India,Indonasia etc..who brought Islam to Cape Town.
The British took control of the Cape in 1795 and handed it back to the Dutch in 1803, only to seize it once more in 1806.
Birth of Simonstown
From 1814 the Royal Navy established a permanent naval base at Simon’s Bay and the town began to flourish. People were drawn from all over by the possibility of employment. The large Royal Naval fleet had to be provisioned and this created business opportunities for a relatively large number of persons. Many people from Britain began to settle in Simon’s Town. The Kroomen from West Africa originated in places like Sierra Leone, Liberia, Ivory Coast and Ghana. They joined the Royal Navy on three year contracts, but many married Simon’s Town women and stayed on in the town after their contracts had expired. These people were intergrated into the Xhosas and coloured people of Simonstown.
During the middle and late 1800’s islanders came from St Helena to settle in Simon’s Town. In the early 1900’s another group of islanders arrived from Tristan da Cunha to settle in the town. Amongst other trades, these people were skilled fishermen and whalermen.
Also arriving in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s were the Indian people, who began businesses in the town. Their descendants still own businesses in Simon’s Town today.
Another group to arrive in the late 1880’s were the Xhosa people from the Eastern Cape. They built the railway into Simon’s Town from Kalk Bay, which was opened in 1890. At first they lived alongside the railway track and then on completion of the work, they moved to a kloof close to the town, where they built their homes on terraces on the mountainside. They assisted with the building of the East Dockyard (1901-1910) and later found employment with the Simon’s Town Municipality and in the day to day activities of the expanding Dockyard. These people married existing Xhosa and coloured people of that area and lived in Luyolo location. During the Apartheid era they were removed from Luyolo location to Gugulethu and Nyanga east.
There were also Xhosa people who worked in the construction of V&A waterfront dockyards these people lived in the DISTRICT SIX alongside coloured people,Indians,poor whites. Non whites were moved to Gugulethu,Nyanga,Manenberg,Athlone,Mitchells Plain etc..
