Well, well, well... I guess it was only a matter of time. People like Jan Lampbrecht, Deirdre Fields, Jani Allen, Adriana Stuijt, Dan Roodt and Emmanuel McLittle (and MANY others) have been warning the world for quite some time that South Africa would be following in Zimbabwe's footsteps. They have been telling the world that the ANC are Mugabe's biggest fans, and that the ANC would follow in the footsteps of Zimbabwe's Zanu-PF.
For those of you who are still in the dark and wondering what this rant is about, should read the BBC's article, titled "SA 'to learn from Zimbabwe'". South Africa's new deputy president have unequivocally declared her great admiration for Zimbabwe's disasterous land reform policy, and expressed her desire to follow Mugabe's example.
Brace yourselve's for a disaster of monumental proportions. Why? South Africa's population stands at 44 344 136, against Zimbabwe's 12 160 782 (according to the CIA World Factbook). And what is to stop South Africa from going down the same road? Better polititians? I don't think so. The ruling party, the ANC, admires Mugabe, therefore they are not better. In fact, they tend to be worse. Better economic policy, maybe? Alas, the South African economy was built and is maintained by the white minority in South Africa. If they leave, their intellectual capital and money goes with.
So, what can the rest of the world expect if this disaster takes place? A few million immigrants (legal or not) from the country with the highest crime rate (also world champs in the rape and murder category), the highest AIDS infection rate in the world, and well, possibly the lowest average voters IQ, since they voted for the culprits who are now running South Africa into the ground.
