Anyone care to comment on these???
Heard about it some time ago, and got sent the link a few days ago again....

Throughout history, mankind has been fascinated with end-of-the-world or major-disaster prophecies – the bloodier, the better. At the same time, the so-called prophets who issue such predictions consistently fall into one of two categories: those who prophesy clearly are almost always wrong, and those who need interpretation (the majority) are “right” after the fact, when a suitable event has happened that bears a passing resemblance to what the “prophet” said or wrote. The fact that Siener van Rensburg needs interpretation is suspicious; the fact that Madiba’s death will possibly be from unnatural causes and will unleash mass murder of white people sounds like a good way to spread unfounded fear and paranoia.

Remember back around ’94 when many whites emigrated from SA? The reason most often given was that civil war was just ’round the corner. However, no well-known prophet was involved then.

What a coincidence, I had a conversation with someone just last week about this. I was shocked to meet someone who actually believed this... 'stuff'.

This person was also a big supporter of the 'volkstaat' idea, although even my most basic questions with regards to simple problems faced by the idea could not be answered. Something that I only thought of later (pity) was why would you bother with a 'volkstaat' if doom was imminent. ::)

I see on the siener.co.za website that speculate about how minibus taxis could transport upto 70 000 people to the JHB city center. Why would they want to go to the Jo'burg city center to kill whiteys?

After a look around it seems that "UHURU" means freedom, but also something like summit or peak....
There is an UHURU peak on Kilimanjaro

So what was actually said in some places was that their freedom was not at a peak or "not yet uhuru"
It could be a bit misleading and give a new meaning to the meaning to what was written on the taxis and stuff...

Just a thought...

As for the supposed protection of a "volkstaat," you'd do better simply burying your head in the sand and gluing a feather-duster to your butt. Maybe they'll mistake you for an ostrich.

At an average of 14 people plus weapons per taxi, that's 5,000 taxis. That, in turn, is a single-file line about 25 km long. Not impossible, of course, especially if the infiltration is spread out over several hours, but highly unlikely that they should get through largely undetected. Also, consider the size of the supposed cover-up: several government departments, the police services, the army and the justice system, all of whom are expected to keep silent. There's an old saying (there always is one, isn't there?) that covers this aspect quite nicely: "Three can keep a secret if two of them are dead." Finally, it seems that Madiba has advanced prostate cancer, which is likely to end his earthly days, and last time I checked this affliction was still counted as a natural cause.

And why concentrate on Joeys when Pretoria, Cape Town and Bloemfontein are at least equally important from a strategic control perspective?
