    Worst of all Mbeki decides to ignore the fact that the Lesotho Highlands Water Project was conceived and built by Lesotho and National Party regime while he was smoking pipe in London. He must tell us the truth and not come with a veiled excuse for foreign national ro run amok without respecting our laws. If Lesotho tries to stop with the water supply it will be shooting itself in the foot as they are landlocked and depends 100% on South Africa for everything.

    Well said former President. Educated and business-minded South Africans will never worst their precious time arguing and spreading "hate-foreigner" speech. Go to the farms they got thousands vacancies, open vegetable markets. For real like-minded idiots do you expect the SA government to impregnate your wife's in order to shower praises on them? If you can't please your woman in bed do you blame it on foreigners? If you spend all your grant on booze do you blame it on foreigners? Wake up!

    A nonsensical assessment from a Mbeki who is a dollar multi-millionaire. The argument is illegal immigrants. Let's start with the vaccination can South Africa afford to vaccinate its own citizens & these illegal immigrants or should we prioritize illegal immigrants at the expense of South Africans. Ndlozi & his cult leader will do anything to achieve political power even if it means South Africans have to suffer. They, politicians are not affected by hardships experienced by poor South Africans on a daily basis. Government will alway prioritize the luxury lives of politicians. They all benefited from the tender system & unfair advantage of being awarded shares by white owned companies because of their positions in politics. Let's go back to Malema & Shivambo's On-Point. The other question is how did Mbeki & wife become dollar multi millionaires. We fight amongst each other at ground level but all these politicians have an understanding. Show me a rich politician & I will show you a crook.

    South Africa pays Lesotho for Highlands Water Project, Lesotho's currency is equivalent to South Africa's in value as a favour by South Africa NOT because of Lesotho's economic strength. Lesotho's citizens work in South African mines and as domestic workers and that benefits their country. South Africans have never been a priority to ANC politicians and the learned Mbeki is a chief contributor to the economic ruin that is Zimbabwe.

    that's so funny that Mbeki is saying all this and no comments about illegal immigrants in our country that are doing as they pleased and South Africans should keep quiet, we support Action South Africa as it will help South Africans . Mbeki is living a good life from our tax money as well this why he thinks about Africa while we struggling and getting killed by foreigners

    02-02 20:36:01

    there's is logic Mr.Mbeki.


    02-02 20:34:35

    there is logic Mr.Mbeki, there is a lot of illegal foreigners in South Africa who are preferred over our own South Africans due to cheap labour and exploitation by business owners.

    Don't tell us what to do cause you are one of the president who didn't do anything to develop the people of South Africa or their life, so you where there for your family and friends, ANC it's a family business not for South African so stop protecting your iligal immigrants and irritating us you fuke opportunist.

    You're being illogical self.Say because somebody do business with you, he/she free to do whatever she/he in your house?Let me explain it simpler,do we have people just walking to these nations to go and fight with hosting nations citizens for whatever the said nation is providing to it's citizens?Say,in places like Ruwanda,do we have south Africans fighting for jobs with Ruwandans in their country?Like they say, people who eats smart feel no pain of hunger.So whatever subject you studied,it remains the truth that what you studied in the book is equally irrelevant to the daily struggle of our community.

    Mbeki is defending Lesotho because his late mother comes from Lesotho. He is comfortable enjoying life with all the benefit including security against all these Zimbabweans bandits.
