—Today I make available the next chapter in my series titled Who stole the Land? This latest Chapter may be read HERE. I believe it is of paramount importance for all South Africans, and those elsewhere with a sense of justice, to make themselves familiar with the events in this chapter. I say this, because this history completely demolishes the very foundation of the ANC government’s efforts to destroy the Brown and White people of the country.

It is dedicated to the most terrible twenty years in the History of Southern Africa outside the Cape Colony. It all started with the accession of Shaka to the throne of the rather insignificant Zulu nation, one of many in the constellation of Nguni people along the east coast of what is now South Africa. The consequences would be one of the most horrific periods in the history of Mankind anywhere on Earth. One has to be devoid of a heart not to have sympathy for the people affected by this horror.

It has taken a long time to put together for two reasons:

Firstly, it required considerable research and digging to find all the texts. Along with that, I have done my very best to find online accessible versions of the texts I quote in evidence. There is no use to me suggesting to an Internet audience that I have the evidence, if I cannot put it in front of their eyes. I rely on British and French missionaries for almost all the first hand evidence. Neither were well-disposed toward the White population of the region.

Secondly, there is a growing effort, supported by the present government of South Africa, to pretend the events in this chapter never even happened. The truth does not sit well with its agenda. I felt it only correct to put the hard, horrible, inhuman evidence directly where people capable of independent thought can see it for themselves.

The overall result of the events in this chapter was the effective depopulation of much of the interior of  the present South Africa north of the Orange River by 1836. Only the furthest northeastern Black people in the country were relatively unaffected by the events. The effects of the Mfecane were felt almost to the equator and defined the populations of what are now the independent countries of Botswana and Lesotho.

The parallels between the histories of USA and South Africa are quite striking. However, this chapter will hopefully make it clear to Americans why South Africa’s history differs profoundly from theirs when it comes to the matter of relations between Whites and Blacks. It also provides historic background to the comments made by President Trump regarding farm killings in South Africa.
