In Part I we explained exactly what CONSTITUTION OF RSA INC. is; in Part II we discussed the company registered as RSA INC. and its relationship to the U.S. In Part III we followed the road leading to Rome; in Part IV we show sufficient reason that the 99% are still being sold down the river; in Part V we took a look into the mind of the occultists; in Part VI we discover the truth regarding money; in Part VII we cover the beginning and end of Babylonian commerce; in Part VIII we lay down the basics of law;
In this part we highlight what has not been fulfilled in the RDP since 1994; and, it provides the remedies to put us back on track towards fulfilling the Freedom Charter and the RDP, away from the Washington Consensus;
We have written it in the form of a Notice & Demand:
To: African National Congress
From: We, the people – Christian Churches, Indigenous Peoples, Tribal Kingdoms, Savings-And-Credit Co-Operatives And Self-determining Communities Living on the land of Southern Africa
To whom it may concern,
Notice and Demand
Regarding the non-fulfilment of the 1994 Reconstruction and Development Programme Policy Framework, hereinafter ‘RDP’,
Kindly Take Notice That We, The People living on the land of Southern Africa, hereby re-declare in the words of the 1955 Freedom Charter:
That the land of Southern Africa belongs to all who live on it, and that no government can justly claim authority unless it is based on the will of ‘we, the people’;
That our people have been robbed of their birth-right to land, freedom and peace by a form of government founded on injustice and inequality;
That our communities will never be prosperous, sovereign or free until all our people live in brotherhood, enjoying equal rights and opportunities;
That only a Republican form of government, one wherein the people and their self-determining states are sovereign, can secure to all their birth-right without distinction of colour, race, sex or belief; and, local self-governance is based on the will of all the people;
Therefore we, the People of Southern Africa declare to strive together, sparing neither strength nor courage, until the changes here set out have been won.
The people shall govern!
All national groups shall have equal rights!
The people shall share in the country’s wealth!
The land shall be shared among those who work it!
All shall be equal before the law!
All shall enjoy equal rights!
There shall be work and security!
The doors of learning and of culture shall be opened!
There shall be houses, security and comfort!
There shall be peace and friendship!
Let all who love their people and their land now say, as we say here: These freedoms we will peace for, side by side, throughout our lives, until our will is done.
Further, that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of we, the sovereign people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute their own new government, laying its foundation on such principles; and, organizing its powers in such form and manner that seems most likely to benefit their safety and happiness.
Kindly take further notice that the obligatory changes and mandates required by the RDP as set out herein; and, almost a generation later, have yet to be developed, fulfilled or implemented;
1990-1994 Reconstruction and Development Programme (RDP)
A Policy Framework
In the PREFACE, the late Nelson Mandela stated:
“…In preparing the document, and in taking it forward, we are building on the tradition of the Freedom Charter. In 1955, we actively involved people and their organisations in articulating their needs and aspirations… However, in 1994 we are about to assume the responsibilities of government and must go beyond the Charter to an actual programme of government. …We are encouraging local communities to begin developing their own priorities.
…From 26-28 April (1994) each of us has a right to exercise a choice – without doubt one of the most important choices any of us will ever make. That choice will determine our socio-economic future and that of our children. Join us in the patriotic endeavour to ensure that all our people share in that future.” Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela – 1994
Since 1994 have the voice of communities fallen on deaf ears; and, we, the people were not even a party to the 1996 Constitution; and, neither was there a Referendum by, for and of the people in this regard; in truth, there is little difference between the previous apartheid regime and the current one; the only difference is that today, the yoke is economic apartheid; therefore, must the word “apartheid’ be read herein as “economic apartheid”
Further, the following still holds true almost a generation later;
1.2 WHY DO WE NEED AN RDP?
1.2.1 Our history has been a bitter one dominated by colonialism, racism, apartheid, sexism and repressive labour policies. The result is that poverty and degradation exist side by side with modern cities and a developed mining, industrial and commercial infrastructure. Our income distribution is racially distorted and ranks as one of the most unequal in the world – lavish wealth and abject poverty characterise our society.
1.2.3 …In commerce and industry, very large conglomerates … control large parts of the economy.
1.2.4 The result is that in every sphere of our society – economic, social, political, moral, cultural, environmental – South Africans are confronted by serious problems. There is not a single sector of South African society, nor a person living in South Africa, untouched by the ravages of apartheid. Whole regions of our country are now suffering as a direct result of the apartheid policies and their collapse.
1.2.9 …No political democracy can survive and flourish if the mass of our people remain in poverty, without land, without tangible prospects for a better life. Attacking poverty and deprivation must therefore be the first priority of a democratic government.
Instead, the divide between the rich and poor growing while the middle class is being eroded; and, this is not by accident, this is man-made and by foreign design;
1.2.10 How can we do this successfully? …A programme is required that is achievable, sustainable, and meets the objectives of freedom and an improved standard of living and quality of life for all South Africans within a peaceful and stable society.
Today, we do not live in a peaceful and stable society – Southern Africa is under economic attack; and, the people are constantly under duress and threat of economic plunder against their persons, property and savings;
…The RDP is an expression of confidence in the wisdom, organisational abilities and determination of our people.
We have confidence in our people; however, we neither trust banks, mega-corporations, courts, nor government; it was Albie Sachs who stated just before this era:
‘It is no accident that constitutions usually come into being as a result of bad rather than good experiences. Their text, or sub-text, is almost invariably: “never again”. In the case of South Africa, the new constitution arises out of the need to escape from the profound humiliations and oppression created by apartheid. Through the constitution, we affirm that we learn something from our dolorous history. It is worth repeating: all constitutions are based on mistrust. If we could trust our rulers, our parties, ourselves, we would not need constitutions. Power not only corrupts, it intoxicates, it confuses. Like Nature, it abhors a vacuum. Like Water, it follows the path of least resistance. Oppression is oppression, but in some ways, oppression in the name of the good is worse than oppression in defence of the bad, since it tarnishes the very ideas it seeks to protect and deprives people even of the image or hope of a better society.’
[‘The Constitution is Natural Justice Writ Large’ in Corder and McLennan (eds) Controlling Public Power: Administrative Justice Through Law Cape Town, Department of Public Law, University of Cape Town: 1995, 51, 51.
Almost another generation later and the majority are still suffering the profound humiliations of artificial man-made debt slavery and poverty;
1.3 THE SIX BASIC PRINCIPLES OF THE RDP
1.3.1 Six basic principles, linked together, make up the political and economic philosophy that underlies the whole RDP. This is an innovative and bold philosophy based on a few simple but powerful ideas. They are:
1.3.2 An integrated and sustainable programme.
This programme is essentially centred on:
1.3.3 A people-driven process. …Regardless of race or sex, or whether they are rural or urban, rich or poor, the people of South Africa must together shape their own future. Development is not about the delivery of goods to a passive citizenry. It is about active involvement and growing empowerment. In taking this approach we are building on the many forums, peace structures and negotiations that our people are involved in throughout the land.
This programme and this people-driven process are closely bound up with:
1.3.4 Peace and security for all. Promoting peace and security must involve all people and must build on and expand the National Peace Initiative. Apartheid placed the security forces, police and judicial system at the service of its racist ideology…
As peace and security are established, we will be able to embark upon:
1.3.5 Nation-building. Central to the crisis in our country are the massive divisions and inequalities left behind by apartheid. We must not perpetuate the separation of our society into a ‘first world’ and a ‘third world’ – another disguised way of preserving apartheid. We must not confine growth strategies to the former, while doing patchwork and piecemeal development in the latter, waiting for trickle-down development. Nation-building is the basis on which to build a South Africa that can support the development of our Southern African region. Nation-building is also the basis on which to ensure that our country takes up an effective role within the world community. Only a programme that develops economic, political and social viability can ensure our national sovereignty.
Nation-building requires us to:
1.3.6 Link reconstruction and development.
The truth is that none of the above principles have been achieved;
Finally, these first five principles all depend on:
1.3.7 Democratisation of South Africa. Minority control and privilege in every aspect of our society are the main obstruction to developing an integrated programme that unleashes all the resources of our country. Thoroughgoing democratisation of our society is, in other words, absolutely integral to the whole RDP. The RDP requires fundamental changes in the way that policy is made and programmes are implemented. Above all, the people affected must participate in decision-making. Democratisation must begin to transform both the state and civil society. Democracy is not confined to periodic elections. It is, rather, an active process enabling everyone to contribute to reconstruction and development.
1.3.8 An integrated programme, based on the people, that provides peace and security for all and builds the nation, links reconstruction and development and deepens democracy – these are the six basic principles of the RDP.
Instead of ‘direct democracy’, meaning ALL the people shall govern, we were sold down the river into a ‘representative democracy’, meaning, mob rule; and, was achieved by semantic deceit under colour of law to garner a semblance of consent from we, the people; and, all achieved under an assumed and presumed authority;
1.4 THE KEY PROGRAMMES OF THE RDP
1.4.1 The five key programmes are:
- meeting basic needs;
- developing our human resources;
- building the economy;
- democratising the state and society, and
- implementing the RDP.
- Meeting Basic Needs
2.1 PROBLEM STATEMENT
2.1.1 Poverty is the single greatest burden of South Africa’s people, and is the direct result of the apartheid system and the grossly skewed nature of business and industrial development which accompanied it. Poverty affects millions of people, the majority of whom live in the rural areas and are women… For those intent on fermenting violence, these conditions provide fertile ground.
In the words of Nelson Mandela: “Poverty is not an accident. Like slavery and apartheid it is man-made and can be removed by the action of people.” And, man-made poverty is a direct threat to Southern Africa’s peace, prosperity and security;
2.2 VISION AND OBJECTIVES
2.2.1 The RDP links reconstruction and development in a process that will lead to growth in all parts of the economy, greater equity through redistribution, and sustainability.
2.2.2 Attacking poverty and deprivation is the first priority of the democratic government…
2.5.15 Finance. Community-controlled financing vehicles must be established with both private sector and government support where necessary.
Neither the objectives, nor the vision has been fulfilled; instead, financial in-equality and in-equity is rapidly growing as Oxfam reported in January of 2015;
2.10.1 Apartheid legislation distorted access to natural resources, denying the majority of South Africans the use of land, water, fisheries, minerals, wildlife and clean air. South Africa’s apartheid policies, combined with the underregulated activities of local and transnational corporations, contributed to the degradation of environmental resources, including soil, water and vegetation.
2.10.2 The democratic government must ensure that all South African citizens, present and future, have the right to a decent quality of life through sustainable use of resources.
Instead, predatory capitalism is destroying the environment, the earth and the peoples hope of a better future; see https://giftoftruth.wordpress.com/capitalism/
2.12 HEALTH CARE
188.8.131.52 Communities must be encouraged to participate actively in the planning, managing, delivery, monitoring and evaluation of the health services in their areas.
Instead, is big pharma corporations set on denying the people their unalienable God-given natural rights to make use of natural health and traditional remedies; while, forcing people into using modern medicine which in fact harms millions every year;
Footnotes – November 2014 Issue – “The Epidemic of Sickness and Death from Prescription Drugs.” by Donald W. Light: “…appropriately prescribed prescription drugs are the fourth leading cause of death…About 330,000 patients die each year from prescription drugs in the US and Europe.”
“They [the drugs] cause an epidemic of about [6.6 million per year] hospitalizations, as well as falls, road accidents, and about 80 million [per year] medically minor problems such as pains, discomforts, and dysfunctions that hobble productivity or the ability to care for others.”
In other words, the 330,000 deaths per year, the 6.6 million hospitalizations per year, and the 80 million “medically minor” problems per year…all stems from CORRECTLY PRESCRIBED medicines.
Further, the following statements are equally valid, today;
2.13 SOCIAL SECURITY AND SOCIAL WELFARE
2.13.1 Apartheid contributed to the destruction of family and community life in various ways. The present …discriminatory social welfare services are piecemeal responses. They have little impact on the root causes of social problems and on the disintegration of the social fabric.
3.3.2 Education must be directed to the full development of the individual and community, and to strengthening respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms. It must promote understanding, tolerance, and friendship among all South Africans and must advance the principles contained in the Bill of Rights.
Instead, the root cause of social problems remains the same; and, education is not directed towards developing people, but a tool to indoctrinate them; for example, basic education on the law and people rights is completely lacking at school level;
A good example of this lack is the words: “human rights” – there is no such thing – it is a legal fiction; and, this is why “human rights” are not enforceable; however, “people rights” are sovereign and the true source of valid authority; this is how we get un-knowingly deceived into foreign jurisdictions for commerce, but are left wondering why our rights remain ignored and its “business as usual”;
- Building the Economy
4.1 PROBLEM STATEMENT
4.1.1 The South African economy is in a deep-seated structural crisis and as such requires fundamental reconstruction.
4.1.5 The South African economy is also characterised by excessive concentration of economic power in the hands of a tiny minority of the population. Through the pyramid system and the resultant control over a vast network of subsidiary companies, a small number of very large conglomerates now dominate the production, distribution and financial sectors.
The above remains un-changed; and, we affirm the following:
4.2 VISION AND OBJECTIVES
4.2.1 The fundamental principles of our economic policy are democracy, participation and development. We are convinced that neither a commandist central planning system nor an unfettered free market system can provide adequate solutions to the problems confronting us. Reconstruction and development will be achieved through the leading and enabling role of …active involvement by all sectors of civil society which in combination will lead to sustainable growth.
4.3 INTEGRATING RECONSTRUCTION AND DEVELOPMENT
4.3.1 …reconstruction and development must be an integrated process. Such integration must be basic to all economic policy. This is where the public sector must play a major enabling role, since it cannot be expected that the market will make such a structural transformation on its own. Yet without such a transformation democracy will not survive, because socio-economic stability will not be achieved.
The public sector has been excluded and the system has become unstable and unsustainable; and, the herein require urgent investigation and redress;
4.4 INDUSTRY, TRADE AND COMMERCE
184.108.40.206 The RDP must strengthen and broaden …linkages between the …mineral-based industries and other sub-sectors of industry. …Where conglomerate control impedes the objectives, anti-trust policies will be invoked.
220.127.116.11 Policies must aim to reduce the gap between conglomerate control of …the financial, mining and manufacturing sectors and sub-sectors, on the one hand, and the difficulties faced by small and micro enterprises in entering those sectors on the other.
18.104.22.168 The processes of commercialisation and privatisation of parastatals must be reviewed, to the extent that such processes are not in the public interest. The democratic government will reverse privatisation programmes that are contrary to the public interest.
4.4.6 The corporate sector.
22.214.171.124 The RDP will introduce strict anti-trust legislation to create a more competitive and dynamic business environment. …to systematically discourage the system of pyramids where they lead to over-concentration of economic power and interlocking directorships, to abolish numerous anti-competitive practices such as market domination and abuse, and to prevent the exploitation of consumers.
Existing state institutions and regulations …must be reviewed in accordance with the new anti-trust policy. …establish a commission to review the structure of control and competition … review existing policy and institutions …and more effective competition. …changes in regulation or management in addition to anti-trust measures.
Instead, since 1994, has corporatization not only swallowed our Republic, but also all government and public services and trusts; only a full investigation with complete access to information and full co-operation from all in a Truth & Reconciliation Commission by, for and of the people will resolve this mess;
When one read the Affidavit of Probable Cause – UNITED STATES OF SOUTH AFRICA one finds that in truth we have no lawful government, but U.N. and U.S. corporation franchises fronting as “government”; and, the constitution is a corporate charter; also see: http://abathembublog.wordpress.com/rsa-inc/
4.5 RESOURCE-BASED INDUSTRIES
4.5.1 Mining and minerals.
126.96.36.199 South Africa is one of the world’s richest countries in terms of minerals. Up to now, however, this enormous wealth has only been used for the benefit of the tiny …minority.
188.8.131.52 The minerals in the ground belong to all South Africans, including future generations… We must seek the return of private mineral rights.
184.108.40.206 Our principal objective is to transform mining and mineral-processing industries to serve all of our people.
220.127.116.11 Mining can be extremely destructive of our natural environment. Our policy is to make the companies that reap the profits from mining responsible for all environmental damage… Existing legislation must be strengthened to ensure that our environment is protected.
The Banks and the BAR legal system are privately-owned City of London agencies that exists outside all known jurisdictions making it impossible to sue; they work hand-in-glove to plunder Southern Africa in a system of bankruptcy-for-profit; while, paving the way for their corporations; while predatory capitalism destroys the environment and peoples’ health; and, the rules of piracy are written by foreign corporate lawmakers who work for the 0, 1% global elite merchant cabal banksters;
4.7 REFORM OF THE FINANCIAL SECTOR
4.7.1 The apartheid system severely distorted the South African financial system. A handful of large financial institutions, all linked closely to the dominant conglomerates, centralise most of the country’s financial assets.
4.7.2 The regulatory framework… The democratic government must enhance accountability, access and transparency in the financial sector. …it must review both regulations and regulatory system to determine which aspects prove an unnecessary impediment….
To improve flexibility in the legal environment… should establish an oversight committee for the financial sector.
4.7.4 Housing bank and guarantee fund …to ensure access to wholesale finance for housing projects and programmes.
4.7.5 Community banking. Community banks of various types have proven able to finance informal entrepreneurs, especially women. The democratic government must encourage community banking. It must reform regulations to foster the development of community banks while protecting customers. Where possible, government structures at all levels should conduct business with these institutions. …must encourage the established banks and other financial institutions to help fund the community banks.
Today, the financial system is even more distorted; instead, of developing community banks, the SOUTH AFRICAN RESERVE BANK, a privately-owned Rothschild central bank, along with another foreign corporation, RSA INC. is taking legal action against savings and credit club communities for “acting as banks”; a complete violation of the authority and sovereignty of the people;
4.7.7 The Reserve Bank. The Interim Constitution contains several mechanisms which ensure that the Reserve Bank is…accountable to the broader goals of development and maintenance of the currency. In addition…to ensure a board of directors that can better serve society as a whole. …must include representatives from the trade unions and civil society. …with greater ability to exercise its mandate than the present board of governors.
4.7.8 …increase the resources available in the Reserve Bank and other appropriate agencies for combating illegal capital flight. Furthermore, the democratic government must enter into discussions with holders of wealth in an effort to persuade them of the harmful effects their actions are having on our economy.
5.1.3 The financing of development programmes under the apartheid state was wasteful, misdirected and mismanaged. There was corruption, and many state and development institutions carry over debts from the apartheid era with which the new government must deal.
5.1.4 Apartheid patterns of minority domination and privilege are not confined to the state and parastatals. Every aspect of South African life is deeply marked by minority domination and privilege. A vast range of institutions in the private domain (in civil society) benefitted from apartheid, and also actively fostered and sustained it.
Economic apartheid dominates the landscape; however, since 1994 are we in the grips of the Federal Reserve Banking system; and, the truth is emerging that it is a giant Ponzi scheme; see https://giftoftruth.wordpress.com/end-the-fed/
Therefore, the banking system is inherently fraudulent and completely un-constitutional; see https://giftoftruth.wordpress.com/banking/
Only a full investigation into the banking system in the form of a Truth & Reconciliation Commission with full public participation will reveal the full extent of the deceit and fraud fomented against Southern Africa and its people;
Further, we hold the following to be true:
5.2 VISION AND OBJECTIVES
5.2.1 The People shall govern. …We will not be able to unleash the …neglected skills and stunted potential of our country and its people while minority domination of state and civil institutions persists. …Reconstruction and development require a population that is empowered through expanded rights, meaningful information and education, and an institutional network fostering representative, participatory and direct democracy.
5.2.2 Democracy requires that all South Africans have access to power and the right to exercise their power. This will ensure that all people will be able to participate in the process of reconstructing our country.
5.2.3 …Deepening democracy will require ensuring that elected structures conduct themselves in an answerable and transparent manner. Clear Codes of Conduct must be established and enforced for all public representatives.
5.2.4 Democratisation requires modernising the structures and functioning of government in pursuit of the objectives of efficient, effective, responsive, transparent and accountable government.
5.2.5 The defence force and the police and intelligence services must be transformed from being agents of oppression into effective servants of the community, with the capacity to participate in the RDP. Our society must be thoroughly demilitarised and all security forces under clear civilian control.
5.2.6 Democracy for ordinary citizens …on the basis of informed and empowered citizens …and facilitate direct democracy (people’s forums, referenda where appropriate, and other consultation processes).
5.2.9 …Effective democracy implies and requires empowered citizens. Formal rights must be given real substance…. One further area is absolutely central in this regard – a democratic information programme.
5.3 CONSTITUENT ASSEMBLY
5.3.1 The new Constitution must reinforce the RDP, ensuring that equality of rights of citizens is not just formal, but substantive.
5.3.2 Consideration should be given to the implementation of a constitutional provision for the calling of a referendum in order to overturn unpopular laws, and to ensure that certain laws get passed.
The Unified Common Law Grand Jury of Southern Africa, hereinafter UZA – a peoples’ court of conscience – has already filed a few cases since 2013 on behalf of the people with CONSTITUTIONAL COURT OF SOUTH AFRICA; every time they gave us no hope of remedy; and, remained silent when we asked for reasons; see details of the last case: http://abathembublog.wordpress.com/case/
Our findings are that Concourt does not work for we, the people but for corporate RSA INC. and its corporate federal charter;
5.6 SECURITY FORCES
5.6.1 The defence force, the police and intelligence services must be firmly under civilian control…
Security Forces are not under civilian control; instead, of protecting the people, their rights and country, through ignorance of law are they in truth aiding and abetting transnational criminal corporations in piracy; thus, are they in breach of oath, duty and trust; educating the Security Forces of their duty to protect and serve the people and not corporations fronting as government is imperative; because, soon they are going to have to choose; and, the people have the natural right to self-defence: to elect their own marshals, sheriffs and state militias;
5.7 THE ADMINISTRATION OF JUSTICE
5.7.1 The system of justice should be made accessible and affordable to all people. It must be credible and legitimate. The legal processes and institutions should be reformed by simplifying the language and procedures used in the court, recognising and regulating community and customary courts, and professionalising the Attorney-General’s office. The public defence system must be promoted and the prosecution system reformed. The pool of judicial officers should be increased through the promotion of lay officials, scrapping the divided bar and giving the right of appearance to paralegals.
The very authority, jurisdiction and legitimacy of the BAR legal system is in question; the imperial BAR legal system is feudal law which is incompatible with Republican systems and people sovereignty; and, it operates under law-of-the-sea, having only jurisdiction over international waters, not on sovereign lands; and, law-of-the-sea is merely for commerce between legal fictions; therefore, must community courts be developed and established to ensure that people make the law; see https://giftoftruth.wordpress.com/uza/
5.11 PARASTATALS AND STATE DEVELOPMENT INSTITUTIONS
5.11.1 …Civil society must be adequately represented on the boards of parastatals and public corporations. Institutions must be transparent and open in both structure and decision-making… There must be a duty to inform the general public…
In order to restore public corporations for the benefit of all, equally, and not just a few, corporations are to be re-purposed into Public Express Trusts as governance is a trust relationship; we must bring an end to corporations and re-purpose them into express trusts; see https://giftoftruth.wordpress.com/express-trusts/
5.11.3 All bodies must run on full cost accounting. All subsidies paid or received must be the result of an explicit and transparent decision… Parastatals should have a public consciousness.
All public bodies and service providers must be monitored by oversight committees by, for and of the people to ensure they represents the people and benefits every community, equally;
5.11.4 Control of funds set aside specifically for development purposes (be they from contracts, the democratic government or the public domain) should vest in a competent and legitimate government agency, which could include representation from civil society.
A Southern Africa fund to be established in the form of an express trust with the sole purpose of a transmitting utility to share all incoming funds equally to all;
5.12 LOCAL GOVERNMENT
5.12.1 Local government is of critical importance to the RDP. It is the level of representative democracy closest to the people. Local government will often be involved in the allocation of resources directly affecting communities.
Instead, local government no longer exists; it has also been swallowed by privately-owned franchises of RSA INC.; municipal local governance must be restored;
Further, we affirm the following statements:
5.13 CIVIL SOCIETY
5.13.1 Apart from the strategic role of government in the RDP, mass participation in its elaboration and implementation is essential.
5.13.4 Delivery or enforcement mechanisms for social and economic rights must not focus only on the Constitution, courts and judicial review, but must include agencies which have the involvement of members and organisations of civil society as means of enforcing social justice.
5.13.5 Institutions of civil society should be encouraged to improve their accountability to their various constituencies and to the public at large. There should be no restriction on the right of the organisations to function effectively.
5.13.6 The rights of individual people should be protected and guaranteed in the processes of government. Groups and communities should be encouraged to contribute to the reconstruction and development process.
5.13.7 Multipartite policy forums representing the major role players in different sectors should be established and existing forums restructured to promote efficient and effective participation of civil society in decision-making. Such forums must exist at the national, provincial and local levels.
5.13.8 Forums …constitute important opportunities for organs of civil society to participate in and influence policy-making. Similarly they provide the democratic government with an important mechanism for broad consultation on policy matters. They need to be assisted (and sometimes restructured) to improve their effectiveness, representivity and accountability.
There are no Forums as yet; however, the Christian Churches, the Indigenous Peoples and Tribal Kingdoms are the driving force behind uniting in one action;
5.14 A DEMOCRATIC INFORMATION PROGRAMME
5.14.1 Open debate and transparency in government and society are crucial elements of reconstruction and development. This requires an information policy which guarantees active exchange of information and opinion among all members of society.
5.14.2 The new information policy must aim at facilitating exchange of information within and among communities and between the democratic government and society as a two-way process.
There is neither open debate, nor transparency nor exchange of information from the government; therefore, is there also no two-way process with the people;
5.14.3 The democratic government must encourage the development of all three tiers of media – public, community and private. However, it must seek to correct the skewed legacy of apartheid where public media were turned into instruments… where community media were repressed; where private media are concentrated in the hands of a few monopolies, and …determine the content of media. New voices at national, regional and local levels, and genuine competition rather than a monopoly of ideas, must be encouraged.
There is a total lack of truth within all levels of corporate mainstream media; all are merely propaganda instruments for foreign elite bankers, corporations and monopolies;
5.14.5 Measures must be taken to limit monopoly control of the media. …must be subject to strict limitations determined in a public and transparent manner. …must encourage unbundling of the existing media monopolies. …Where necessary, anti-trust legislation must be brought to bear on these monopolies.
Today, the world is run by 6 media mega-corporations controlled and owned by the same elite; and, their corporate lies have now been exposed by alternative social media and the U.S. Trump presidency; all Southern Africa media and press must be under civilian control so as to quickly educate all people on the truth; it was Madiba that said that: “Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” And, although there are some educated and informed people, the masses are being deceived into believing in a web of lies; the reality could be no further from the truth;
5.14.7 ……Freedom of Information …must be broadened.
Instead of access to information are unlawful secrecy bills being passed;
5.14.11 All these measures require institutional mechanisms independent of the democratic government and representative of society as a whole.
Of course, none of this has or will transpire until we, the people take action;
Further, in order to fulfill the RDP and meet its obligations, the following aspects of its implementation must be resolved as a matter of urgency; the people can no longer wait;
- Implementing the RDP
6.1 PROBLEM STATEMENT
6.1.1 The processes of planning and development in South Africa have been structurally distorted by the objectives of apartheid and, both by design and default, have failed to meet the needs of the majority. In recent years all parts of South Africa’s excessively complex state system have been incapable of implementing their stated goals. Increased waste, unused funds and outright corruption have characterised government. To implement the RDP, a thoroughgoing reform will be necessary to address the following major structural weaknesses:
Today, the same holds true; Southern Africa has been diverted towards the Washington Consensus and we must get it back on track to fulfill the Freedom Charter and RDP;
18.104.22.168 Excessive departmentalism leading to uncoordinated, sometimes contradictory, decision-making by various state agencies.
22.214.171.124 The allocation of power between the various tiers of government – local, regional and national – does not accord with practical needs. Generally, the central state and some regional governments have excessive and inappropriate power.
All powers must be restored to local municipal governments; and, to those self-identifying communities wishing self-determination and to govern themselves;
126.96.36.199 At all levels, the structures of government exclude the majority of the population from participation in decision-making. Bureaucrats do not consult with most stakeholders.
188.8.131.52 Decision-making remains largely unaccountable either to the public or to monitoring structures. Typically, civil servants act in secret. They rarely justify or explain their decisions in public, and they often have poor relations with NGOs, civics and other community organisations.
184.108.40.206 The potential contribution of NGOs to reconstruction and development is reduced by the lack of an overall framework and integrative programmes. This results in fragmented and isolated projects.
Due to greed and lack of government support, have NGOs become funded by international charities and foundations that are also controlled and owned by the elite; in this way are NGOs now controlled by those that cause the problems in the first place;
220.127.116.11 Implementation of any development programme under circumstances of …corruption or clientelism is extremely difficult.
Today, the same still hold true; therefore, must the local people themselves have full say and be involved in the entire processes from beginning to end; and, merely with guidance from experts; however, the unanimous decision of the people must be final;
Further, the RDP has failed in the following vision and objectives:
6.2 VISION AND OBJECTIVES
6.2.1 The basic principles of the RDP are that it is a coherent programme, that it builds a nation, that it is people-driven, that it provides peace and security for all, that it links reconstruction and development, and that it democratises the state and society.
18.104.22.168 A new legislative and regulatory system for development planning is required in order to make the RDP a reality. Current inappropriate and unconstitutional development legislation must be repealed.
The local community committees, courts, hearings, oversight committees and tribunals can fulfill the role of regulating RDP roll out;
Community Courts, Further, the following methods of financing the completion of the RDP have yet to be employed:
22.214.171.124 The regulatory system must provide a basis for defining and fast-tracking strategic reconstruction projects, and provide for rapid granting of legal status to widely supported, interim metropolitan/district and provincial development frameworks.
The local people themselves must have full control and say over funds for projects; here, the churches, community courts or tribal authority can play a big role in giving guidance and settling disputes that may arise;
Further, the following methods of financing the completion of the RDP can still be used;
6.5 FINANCING THE RDP
6.5.2 …The largest portion of all RDP proposals will be financed by better use of existing resources.
126.96.36.199 reviewing personal income tax to reduce the burden caused by fiscal drag on middle-income people;
6.5.16 There is a need for an overall foreign debt strategy. …Relationships with international financial institutions such as the World Bank and International Monetary Fund must be conducted in such a way as to protect the integrity of domestic policy formulation and promote the interests of the South African population and the economy. Above all, we must pursue policies that enhance national self-sufficiency and enable us to reduce dependence on international financial institutions.
6.5.17 Socially desirable investments. If the major financial institutions do not take up socially desirable and economically targeted investments, the democratic government should consider some form of legislative compulsion such as prescribed assets.
6.5.18 Other resources. Unemployed local labour must be mobilised, through job banks and community-based employment-generation initiatives. Employed workers must be given incentives to use their skills and knowledge in the interests of society. …Only through such grassroots-oriented development initiatives can the RDP be brought to its logical fruition as a successful programme for all South Africans.
Further, tackling illicit capital flows for economic development is imperative; reports indicate that as much as 70% of corporate taxes are evaded into tax havens; this alone is more than our total imports and exports; see https://giftoftruth.wordpress.com/reports/
Truth & Reconciliation Commissions
A full investigation must be made into the Bank and BAR legal system; TRCs by, for and of the people must be established as a matter of urgency to save our Republic; we are under economic attack; our self-preservation is at stake; the necessity of survival overrides all law;
7.1 Throughout this document, we have stressed that the RDP is a people-driven programme. People have been part of drawing up the RDP and they must now take the process forward. How can this be done in concrete ways? A number of processes must now begin.
7.2 The RDP will now be used to consult widely, in order to get comment and further input. Any organisation that wishes to make such a contribution can do so in writing, or contact the ANC to arrange a meeting. Any organisation that feels that it can make a specific contribution to the implementation of the RDP should do likewise.
7.3 We welcome written comment from any organisation, expert or person with knowledge about any of the areas covered in the RDP.
7.7 The future is in our hands and we must carry forward the work needed to finally liberate ourselves from the evils of apartheid.
And, the purpose of this document is not to divide, but to unite Southern Africans against the common enemy – a foreign elite – intent on enslaving the earth; and, using transnational corporations and agencies to turn countries into debt slaves while stealing their resources; and, in the end leaving the people with no hope of a better future;
RSA INC. is bankrupt and insolvent and our natural resources and the sweat of our labour have been deceitfully stolen from the people; the people have been defrauded in many different ways; however, there is no statute of limitations on fraud; and, the “that without which not” of any dispute is to establish the truth; and, the truth must be and will be fully investigated in TRCs by, for and of the people; and, full restoral and restitution made to all;
Now, there is no “us” or “them”; we are all in the same boat; and, this boat is sinking and will lead to disaster unless we take decisive action; therefore, public servants will have to make a choice: either serve the 0, 1% foreign elite; or, serve the 99%; there is no more time to sit on the fence; the evils of the Washington Consensus is now becoming public knowledge; and, the Federal Reserve Ponzi Scheme of bankruptcy-for-profit is showing all the hall marks of collapse; and, unless we unite and take action, we will end up like Brazil, Greece and Venezuela, to name a few victims of imperial capitalism;
Therefore, on behalf of the above-named we request an urgent meeting with key ANC officials as soon as possible to table and discuss a way forward; only together, united do we have the remedies to create a win-win for all Southern Africans; feel free to forward this Notice & Demand to all government departments and all organs of state;
We await your prompt response; united we stand; divided we fall;
Sincerely, in peace,
we, the sovereign people
