UCDP The Remnants of Apartheid Regime

Allow me to unpack the politics of United Christian Democratic Party (UCDP). I must say during the Apartheid regime it created two laws which serve to separate Africans and blacks in particular, which was the Native land act and the Segregation act, it was the Segregation act that later led to the creation of the Bantustan which was divided into two namely, he homelands called the TBVC states (Transkei, Bophuthatswana, Venda and Ciskei) as well as self governing territories, Kwandebele, Lebowa, Gazankulu and Zulu natalThe two former members of the ANCYL during their study at Fort Hare University namely Chief Lucas Manyane Mangope and Mangosuthu Gatsha Buthelezi, later led Bophuthatswana and Zulu natal respectively.

Who is Eugene Terre’Blanche

It was always tempting not to take Eugene Terre’Blanche seriously. He swaggered around in a uniform that made him look like an overgrown boy scout, threatening the race war to end all race wars in defence of apartheid, but his platoons of potbellied men didn’t look like they had much fight in them. I once watched his Afrikaner Resistance Movement (AWB) demonstrate “use of the horse in a revolutionary situation” — in this case rescuing a stranded white woman and her children from the heart of a bla

702 takes drastic measures to stem listenership slump

When Channel 702 began broadcasting from the fake independent state of Bophuthatswana on June 28 1980, it was, for the South African government, a humiliating example of being bitten by your own dog. Desperate to prove that its crude “independent homeland” project was legitimate, Pretoria’s securocrats could do nothing to stop brothers Natie and Issie Kirsh from setting up a brash, renegade radio station across the nominal frontier from where it dragged SA into the talk radio age. It was a clever trick.
