Unified Common Law Grand Jury of Southern Africa also known as UZA; the “ZA” stands for the Universal Postal Union [UPU] code for Republic of South Africa;

UZA is an un-incorporated jural assembly; when we say “common law”, we do not mean feudal imperial Common Law (which is law-of-the-sea in disguise) we mean people’s common and customary law and lore; natural law and natural justice;

Download text: Common Law v. COMMON LAW

There is only one law: “Do no harm, cause no loss, let freedom reign.”

Our purpose is to educate and inform the people as to what law really is and what their rights really are; and, help lay the foundations for law of the land jural assemblies and customary law councils;

The 1955 Freedom Charter states:


          … The courts shall be representative of all the people;         

The SA Bill of Rights states in section 34. Access to courts – Everyone has the right to have any dispute that can be resolved by the application of law decided in a fair public hearing before a court or, where appropriate, another independent and impartial tribunal or forum.

UZA is “another”  independent and impartial forum;

Further, the 1994 Reconstruction & Development Programme policy framework states:


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.

We are lay officials, having educated ourselves as to what law is; and, what the people’s rights are; and, what the remedies are against an unjust system;



  • Restoring the authority, power and sovereignty of we, the people through basic education  on law and rights; from school and up; at all levels;
  • Removing the divided BAR and restoring the power of law-making back to the people where it lawfully and rightfully belongs;
  • Restoring the authority, jurisdiction and superiority of the un-enacted law-of-the-land; common law; customary law; 
  • Providing educational and source material for community courts, law-of-the-land and lay officials;
  • Developing and establishing community courts, jural assemblies, public hearings, oversight committees, tribunals and Truth & Reconciliation Commissions; by, for and of the people; hereinafter community courts;
  • Applying only principles of restorative justice in the above forums;
  • Prohibiting the divided BAR or members from the above forums;
  • Restoring due process of people’s law; equality before the law; fairness; good faith; justness; lawfulness; precepts of law; rule of law; and, of right;
  • Restoring the precepts of the law;
  • Maxim – These are the precepts of the law: To live honorably; to hurt nobody; to render to every one his due. Inst. 1, 1, 3; 1 Bl. Comm. 40.
  • By, for and of the people; the people shall do govern!


Mission Statement

Southern Africa is in its essence a republican form of government; one, wherein the people are sovereign and the authors and source of law for whom the fiction called government exists and acts; 

And, Southern Africa is divided up into many local, self-determining and self-governing communities, kingdoms, provinces, republics and or states, hereinafter “state”;

And, each state exercises their own right to self-determination and local self-governance as they see fit; without any outside interference;

Yet, all people and all states are bound by mutual agreements and treaties to co-operate on a national level in nation building;

While, all states share equally in the wealth of the whole of Southern Africa, together; to ensure equity, prosperity and stability for all; no-one gets left out;

And, each state has its own flag, government, population, lands and territory;

And, each state freely declares and establishes their own Constitution, Bill of Rights, Freedom Charter and or other agreements and declarations as they see fit;

And, each state has their own community courts, public hearings, oversight committees, tribunals and Truth & Reconciliation Commissions; each with uniform rules and procedures and sources of un-enacted law to draw on;

And, because people are sovereign they are only accountable to their equals and peers in the above lawful forums; and, all abide by the law-of-the-land; free from legal fiction and free from a divided feudal, imperial BAR legal system; 

And, all people are educated and informed as to the law and their rights;

And, there is no more need for politics;

And, voter elections have been replaced by local and national Referendums as a means of direct representation;

And, the morals, ethics, principles and values of states and community courts express the will of the people; and, reflects their unique and pivotal role in the life of every self-governing community and in the nation as a whole. 


Morals and Ethics

The lack of morals and ethics that we see in our “governments”, is but merely a mirror of our own lack of morals and ethics;

A Fatal Tendency of Mankind – “Self-preservation and self-development are common aspirations among all people. And if everyone enjoyed the unrestricted use of his faculties and the free disposition of the fruits of his labor, social progress would be ceaseless, uninterrupted, and unfailing. But there is also another tendency that is common among people. When they can, they wish to live and prosper at the expense of others. This is no rash accusation. Nor does it come from a gloomy and uncharitable spirit. The annals of history bear witness to the truth of it: the incessant wars, mass migrations, religious persecutions, universal slavery, dishonesty in commerce, and monopolies. This fatal desire has its origin in the very nature of man—in that primitive, universal, and insuppressible instinct that impels him to satisfy his desires with the least possible pain.” – Claude Frédéric Bastiat 1801-1850; The Law

A 170 years later and nothing has changed; if, we truly want to live in a just and lawful society then we will have to start walking our talk; and, be brutally honest and truthful with ourselves; because, our very survival is at stake;

All we really need is:

One Law: Do no harm, cause no loss, let freedom reign;

5 basic ethics: truth, integrity, responsibility, accountability, transparency;

And, to uphold the Golden Rule: to love our neighbour as we love ourselves; to do unto others as we would have them do to us; and, to realize that if we want others to respect our rights then we must be willing to respect their rights, first; meaning, where your rights end, mine begins; and, this is truly a humbling experience;

But, in today’s ego-centric society, we all want everything NOW; and, only for ourselves without any regard for others; instead, of freely giving and then freely receiving; this is why the world is upside down and back to front;


No wo/man can serve two masters

Those people, who believe that they can use any part of the existing system to find a remedy, need to educate and inform themselves; they are wasting their time; there is no remedy to be found, there; neither from commercial banks, nor the bar legal system, nor the courts, nor from corporations fronting as lawful “government”, nor political parties, nor those “acting” as…, nor any and all REGISTERED ENTITIES;

And, often we have groups trying to conscript us to campaign with them for their cause; for example, we have dear Christians friends who believe that they can use politics to bring about change; to them we say:

Luke 16: 10 He that is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least, is unjust also in much. 11 If therefore you have not been faithful in the unrighteous Mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? 12 And if you have not been faithful in that which is another mans, who shall give you that which is your own? 13 No servant can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one, and love the other: or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other: you cannot serve God and Mammon.

UZA’s position is clear; we have no respect for an evil system; not for fictions, not for personages, not for politics; and, not for those acting as any such like;

Yes, it is our duty to educate and to inform people, but we have to remain independent and impartial at all times; we are truly a 4th branch of government;



UZA only recognizes the living and the tangible; we respect all people, equally; we respect their beliefs, customs, religion and traditions; but, we do not respect their  persons of man;

Acts 10: 34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a trueth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons: 35 But in every nation, he that fears him, and works righteousness, is accepted with him. [KJV 1611]

We are standing on the land as living people and those who choose to “act” as “persons” are truly lost at sea; and, under law-of-the-sea are merely regarded as “flotsam”, “jetsam”, “lignin”  as “wreckage”; and, there be pirates and sea monsters out there… good luck;

Therefore, of necessity people must choose between law-of-the-land and law-of-the-sea; and, we cannot help those that choose the latter because like oil and water, the two cannot mix;

Instead, we treat everyone as equals, as peers, as living people; without fear, favour or prejudice;

And, we do not judge the sinner; however, we are morally and ethically obligated to speak out against the sin; and, against any forms of discrimination, ignorance, injustice, unfairness and or unjustness;


On Truth

Now, the “that without which not” of any case is (supposed to be) to establish the truth, above all else;

“Court proceedings are held for the solemn purpose of endeavoring to ascertain the truth which is the sine qua non of a fair trial. Over the centuries Anglo-American courts have devised careful safeguards by rule and otherwise to protect and facilitate the performance of this high function. As a result, at this time those safeguards do not permit the televising and photographing of a criminal trial, save in two States and there only under restrictions. The federal courts prohibit it by specific rule. This is weighty evidence that our concepts of a fair trial do not tolerate such an indulgence. We have always held that the atmosphere essential to the preservation of a fair trial—the most fundamental of all freedoms—must be maintained at all costs.” Estes v. State of Texas, 381 U.S. 532, 540, 14 L.Ed.2d 543, 549, 85 S.Ct. 1628, 1631-32 (1965), rehearing denied, 382 U.S. 875, 15 L.Ed.2d 118, 86 S.Ct. 18 (1965).

But, we jural activists know this not to be true; here are a few plain truths:

BAR legal system: unbeknown to most people, the BAR is a secret society operating outside all jurisdictions; see:

And, what the BAR legal system metes out is not law, but the feudal imperial rules of the law-of-the-sea; of the kings, merchants and priesthood of the nations of the compass; federal law; law-of-war; piracy and privateering laws; of divide, conquer and rule; of debt, peonage and slavery; using rule by law and not rule of law; and, coercing and pressganging people by force of law to extort unlawful customs, duties, fees, taxes; and, use fear (metus) and punishment which is only used on cattle, chattel, conquered peoples, goods, jetsam, flotsam, lignan and on slaves;

See also:

The 1893 Dictionary of Arts and Sciences, Encyclopedia Britannica, a dictionary of arts, sciences, and general literature / The R.S Peale 9th 1893 defines the word “LEGAL” in 5 words: The undoing of God’s Law.”

James 4: 12 There is one Lawgiver, who is able to save, and to destroy: who are you that judges another? [KJV 1611]

Matthew 23: 23 Woe unto you Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; for you pay tithe of mint, and annise, and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the Law, judgement, mercy and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. 24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel. [KJV 1611]

Banks: the banks are privately-owned foreign entities and operate hand-in-glove with the BAR from Office Row, CITY OF LONDON to fleece all people and every country; see:

Banking:  The federal reserve banking system is, in truth, a giant Ponzi scheme operating under bankruptcy-for-profit and does not work at all  the way that people believe; and, that what we know as ‘money’ is in fact un-constitutional and unlawful in its current form; see:

Politics: was designed by a foreign elite to divide, conquer then rule the people; “This truth is well known among our principal men now engaged in forming an imperialism of Capital to govern the world. By dividing the voters through the political party system, we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance. Thus by discreet action we can secure for ourselves what has been so well planned and so successfully accomplished.” – Sir Denison Miller.

RSA INC: SOUTH AFRICA INC. is merely a privately-owned, foreign, federal  corporation; a “service provider”; a franchise of the U.S. managed by the banks and fronting as the lawful Republic for Southern Africa:

Conclusion: the truth is we have no lawful banks, banking system, courts, government, laws;  nothing; it has all been turned upside down; A fiction and a lie can never be a reality and a truth; that which is crooked cannot be made straight; that which is empty cannot be measured or counted;

So, no matter what your cause may be, the remedy is:

  1.  to restore the power of banking; and,
  2. to restore the power of making law;

back into the hands of the people where it lawfully and properly belongs;

These must be in the form of UNINCORPORATED community trade banks and UNINCORPORATED community courts and jural assemblies; by, for and of the people; the people must govern themselves!

Think about it, community banks and courts will solve most of our problems;



UZA is more than willing to give a presentation to your community on what law is and what your rights and remedies are; however, it is against UZA policy to make public appearances; so often do the Elders and Leaders of other communities want to place us in their leadership role, not fully realizing our role;

also, it is costly to travel; and, there is no need to put the security of our people at risk;

It is very easy to set up a Zoom meeting online; any smart phone, laptop or pc with internet connection will do; one need only go to beforehand and download the Zoom app; and, check that it works; UZA will set up the meeting and email you the zoom link before the meeting; by clicking on the link at the time the meeting starts; it should takes one directly into the meeting;



We filed two cases with the International Tribunal for Natural Justice; UZA v. RSA INC. and abaThembu Royal Kingdom v. RSA INC. 

The first case we had to withdraw as the witnesses failed to take action; in the second case, it became clear that the BAR legal system is still clinging to its feudal notions and claiming superiority over customary law; the ITNJ were not prepared to hear the case according to our terms: at customary law and law-of-the-land jurisdiction, free from legal fiction;

Conclusion – In 2017, there is not yet an international tribunal that will hear common law, customary law or law-of-the-land cases yet; but, this is changing; the Indigenous Peoples across the earth are slowly, but surely uniting; see:

What have we learnt from this? Only we, the people can save ourselves and our Republic; do to this, we must start on a local level;


Restore the Republic

According to international legal citation, South Africa is a Republic and not a Democracy; and, to date we have not yet had a lawful Republic; and, we also know that to change the system starts and ends with law;

In a Republican form of government the people and their communities are sovereign;

“The words “sovereign state” are cabalistic words, not understood by the disciple of liberty, who has been instructed in our constitutional schools. It is our appropriate phrase when applied to an absolute despotism. The idea of sovereign power in the government of a republic is incompatible with the existence and foundation of civil liberty and the rights of property.” Gaines v. Buford, 31 Ky. (1 Dana) 481, 501.

The UZA team has studied the common law and the work of every leading judicial activist; and, the number one expert on our list, is Judge Anna Von Reitz; she is by far the most educated that we know of – in the field of jurisdiction, people law and rights; and, she has done the time to rightly claim the title of common law judge operating at law-of-the-land jurisdiction; read: Once Again, What Kind of Judge Are You – Anna von Reitz

Now, when it comes to republicanism, America had the most advanced republican system before it was hijacked by a federal corporation fronting as lawful government; so, there is much to learn from them;

Even though Judge Anna’s work is focused on America, the story behind the federalization of RSA INC. happened in much the same way as the U.S. involving the same players; if, law and rights interests you, we recommend reading articles by Judge Anna Von Reitz; and, the first place on the internet is:

And, this link is an index of Judge Anna’s writings:

The next step is to form our local unincorporated jural assemblies.

Your Mission, Jim, If You Decide to Accept It – Anna von Reitz

The jural assemblies then restore the local unincorporated land jurisdiction government; it all begins with the law and ends with the law; first locally, then at state level then national;


How Do We Form RSA Jural Assemblies?

Now, America is way ahead of Southern Africa in terms of the law-of-the-land and jural assemblies; Southern Africa only woke up to the law and your rights in 2011, thanks to our pioneer, Johan Joubert; and, since then have we been working on this full time; 

For America, the Michigan Jural Assembly has already paved the way for them; they wrote a handbook;

FROM DE FACTO TO DE JURE – Handbook for the restoration of the peaceful sovereign states of America.

Download handbook at:

UZA is busy writing the handbook for Southern Africa; we hope to have it complete in 2017;

“The issue is not whether we shall do something or do nothing. The demand for ordinary everyday legal justice is so great and the moral nature of the demand is so strong that the issue has become whether we devise, maintain, and support suitable agencies able to satisfy the demand or, by our own default, force the government to take over the job, supplant us, and ultimately dominate us.” [Smith, Legal Service Offices for Persons of Moderate Means, 1949 Wis.L.Rev. 416, 418 (1949).] 


RESTORATIVE JUSTICE – the road to healing

South Africa as in most countries in the world is still applying a retributive justice system whereby the accused  is in the centre of interrogation and there is no or little concern regarding the victim of crime. The post ’94 Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) enabled the resurfacing of Restorative Justice Philosophy which has always been part of the African indigenous justice system. Punishing people for crimes committed seems to have only limited success, hence the need for a different approach and response

Every law has it’s boundaries and level of importance called jurisdiction. All courts today using bar association and law society members in fact only abide by the law of the sea and only have jurisdiction over legal fictions such as ‘citizen’, corporation’, ‘human’, ‘person’ and the like.

However, if a natural wo/man does  not consent to the subject-matter-jurisdiction of the law of the case; and or waivers their right to ‘recognition as a person’; and or declares the right to a fair trial before peers in another independent and impartial tribunal  as per s. 34 then the courts of South Africa are obligated to develop the common law, customary law or other jurisdiction when invited to do so;

However, they know that if they do then their game is over…

Community courts are the remedy to piercing the corporate veil and hold accountable those causing harm or loss before a forum of equals and peers, namely ‘we, the people’. In this way can we lift people out from behind the law-of-the-sea jurisdiction, back onto the law-of-the-land jurisdiction; as opposed to what we normally do: lowering ourselves into a legal fiction jurisdiction wherein one has to deal with a divided bar that does not work for the people;

Community courts are to be free from bar interference and operate by their own general rules and procedures in jury-type hearings wherein judges are merely arbitrators and the people judge on facts heard by unanimous, enforceable rulings which also set precedent for future cases. That is what “the people shall govern” means. Full participation in all aspects of society as well as community courts “by the people, for the people, of the people”;

Government and judiciary will not do this for the people; the people must do it for themselves. This is one of our main objectives: laying the foundations for community courts. 


1994 RDP Policy Framework

Since 1994, was South Africa to continue on the road mapped by the 1955 Freedom Charter and the 1994 Reconstruction and Development Programme [RDP] policy framework; we were supposed to have developed community banks and community courts; The BAR legal system was supposed to be removed and lay officials trained;

In simple language, the law-of-the-sea was supposed to go back to its 200 mile offshore limit; and, the law-of-the-land restored;

From the 1952 Defiance Campaign against the apartheid laws of the previous South African regime, the 1955 Freedom Charter was born and was adopted by many people of Southern Africa. The 1994 Reconstruction and Development Programme [RDP] policy framework was established which flowed from the Charter. Both the Freedom Charter and the RDP represent the law of the land and represents the will of the people.

The RDP states:

5.2.6 Democracy for ordinary citizens must not end with formal rights and periodic one-person, one-vote elections. Without undermining the authority and responsibilities of elected representative bodies (the national assembly, provincial legislatures, local government), the democratic order we envisage must foster a wide range of institutions of participatory democracy in partnership with civil society on the basis of informed and empowered citizens (e.g. the various sectoral forums like the National Economic Forum) and facilitate direct democracy (people’s forums, referenda where appropriate, and other consultation processes).

People’s forums, referenda and other consultation processes operating in their own jurisdiction have yet to be implemented in order to be truly independent from the divided bar and in order to maintain jurisdiction. The Constitution must recognise the fundamental equality of common law and customary law.

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.

Referendums by, for and of the people have yet to be developed in order to overturn unpopular laws.


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 system of justice is becoming less accessible and more un-affordable as costs escalate. Court trials are not yet fair as language and procedures used in the court have yet to be simplified, the divided bar has yet to be scrapped and lay officials are yet to be promoted in order to be truly credible and legitimate.

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. In this regard, a revamped Human Rights Commission, with wider popular involvement, should have its mandate extended to ensure that social and economic rights are being met.

Government cannot restore government of, for, and by the people.   We, the people have to do that for ourselves.

  1. thats funny! silence is a plea of guilt. let them have the taste of their own medicine.

    i always tell people that if Malema were to b a president the africans would have economic freedom, just as QADAFFI did for his people, bt then the west dont approve of such leaders. Malema though is not the answer to all political problems.

    lets wait and see the change of the face of our destructed planet in 2016.

    1. Hi Simphiwe, the trial runs for 5 days; one day for each major department; one day will be dedicated to banks, foreclosures, asset forfeiture; the day that interests you the most he he;
      28 Jan – Opening Ceremony, Constitutional Hill, Hillbrow
      29 Jan – Bank CEOs summoned
      01 Feb – SARS, SARB, Treasury CEOs summoned
      02 Feb – Government MPs & CEO summoned
      03 Feb – Public Prosecutor & National Prosecuting authority
      04 Feb – Chief Justice of Constitutional Court summoned
      blessings, bt

      1. S, without prejudice; The Minister we had to serve on Monday, we accidently bumped into him in the passage, not knowing it was him, when he read the document he was very shaken and then told us he did not know where the Minister (himself) was and he had to run, he was busy…

        Silence is a plea of guilt. Trial will then proceed, if they fail to appear. Tick tock. If, we have an International arrest warrant with International Provost Marshals behind us, the students, EFF, civic associations, churches etc. Let’s see who wins. 2016 will be the year of justice.

        By 11 July, 2016, RSA will be in safe hands and that is our un-birthday and the day Pope Francis’ Motu Proprio expires and then its open hunting season. bt
        is building a case against the Vatican and Francis himself to be filed on that Monday the 11th.

        Be blessed.

    1. Technically, by their rules they are ding nothing wrong; again, you would have to do what we did and there would be no point in repeating what we are already doing for everyone; so, the best would be to support our actions or raise R100 000 to have your case heard by ITNJ; you can file a complaint with us, but at this stage we only deal with cases that have case numbers;

      To put it bluntly, we have a country where all of those who believe they are in the ‘know’ are keeping themselves distracted by their own private court games which they ALL lose in the end; there is no place for ego in the battlefields; and, in the law of the sea there is NO REMEDY; this leaves us understaffed because we have a bunch of egotists who do not see that unless we unite there will be NO REMEDY;

      So, thank you for the assistance you have done thus far; you are maybe 1 of 10…

      It has always been a few who change the world and it is no different now; there are only 2 000 souls who are the change, the “trimtabs” as old Bucky put it; and that is all that is required; we are not better than anyone else, we paid close attention to what Johan Joubert, our pioneer said and stuck to it; he had 15 years of experience; in addition, we only focus on remedies whereas most waste their time on the hows and whys and re-affirming the power of the cabal by relating stories of what “they” are up to instead of what we are doing about it; that kind of programming is by design…

      Thankfully, we have assistance from the international community because SA, eish she is asleep at the wheel… in peace
