- Note - I received this e-mail from Dr Chris Jordaan.
It is a bombshell. This should be front page news, but is instead stuck
in a publication in Holland.
- Let me take you back to 1994. During the "First
Democratic Elections" in South Africa, there was quite a ruckus made
by different political parties over election irregularities. At the time,
I remember hearing from friends who were involved in the actual counting
process of strange incidents - of boxes stuffed with votes only for the
ANC. Some of these reports made it to the press. I did not make a note
of these incidents, and its quite a while back, so my memory is vague.
But I heard enough stories to strongly suspect that something was not right.
- I would also like to mention another story as well because
I am in IT (Information Technology - Computers). A friend of mine told
me how some businessmen in SA, in anticipation of the 1994 election imported
into the country the most sophisticated vote-counting machines/computers
available at the time. These businessmen were sure this was going to be
needed and they prepared to sell these highly sophisticated, highly-accurate
machines to the government.
- But it was the ANC [African National Congress] that lobbied
against MACHINE COUNTING back then!! The ANC came up with the (junk) argument
that "they did not trust the machines!!" The ANC was the only
political party which kicked against the use of machine-counting in that
election. For those who were around back then... you will remember that
in the end, the votes were counted by hand, and the process took a very
long time... Days and days went by as the votes were counted.
- What you also might not be aware of, is that most of
the vote counting was actually done by ANC supporters.
- As Americans will remember from the Florida vote-counting
problems when Bush came to power - the Democrats were the ones who insisted
on hand-counting, and bypassing the machines, etc. The minute you start
doing that, you start affecting the impartiality of the process. I remember
reading where a conservative in the USA was saying that hand counting is
a traditional trick if you want to cheat.
- There are many other stories that could be told from
the 1994 elections, and even from modern ones in SA. For example, a Councilor
for the DA here in Johannesburg, told me some months back that even now,
at local elections the ANC spread the word in the townships that they know
who you are voting for - and if you "dont' vote right" well...
they're watching you. He told me that campaigning in the black townships
- something that most of the political parties do these days - is extremely
difficult because of certain deliberate OFF THE RECORD statements made
by ANC officials to black people. The black people, not being aware of
how the voting process is supposed to be transparent - truly believe that
they are being watched.
- Anyway, this story is fascinating. Finally, De Klerk
comes out and tells us something about what really happened. It does not
surprise me. In fact, it reminds me of how Mugabe cheated in the 1980 election
and how this was raised with Margret Thatcher, and how she, like De Klerk,
also decided to let it go. But the problem is... this has set the scene,
and I firmly believe, that the ANC will indeed cheat in the future just
like ZANU(PF) in Zimbabwe, when their support dwindles. Yep, stick around...
you're still gonna see much more blatant election fraud in South Africa
in the years to come. I firmly believe the words Winnie Mandela spoke to
a crowd of black people in Pretoria in 1999. She said: "The ANC will
rule South Africa - FOREVER!" I believe they sure as hell are gonna
do their best to try.
- The statements in this news article are from a Press
Conference in Nigeria recently where former President De Klerk spoke. It
is interesting that so far only this Dutch newspaper has published these
comments. Since other media were there, I would like to ask people to keep
their eyes and ears open in case someone else publishes these comments
of his as I feel they are very important. -Jan
- Since this is from an e-mail, I'm including the e-mail
and the link. But I will also insert the Dutch as well as my translation
of this short Dutch article:
- Here is the e-mail from Dr Jordaan:-
- South African 1994 Elections Were Fixed Says Former President
FW de Klerk
- JOHANNESBURG - South Africa's first multiracial elections
in 1994 were manipulated and fraudulent by at least a million illegal votes,
which had been cast for one candidate and one party.
- This was said by former President F W de Klerk, speaking
at a press conference In Nigeria. This comment was recorded by a Dutch
- He said at least one-million votes for only one party
and one candidate were "deposited, neatly in piles, into voting boxes."
- De Klerk also revealed that he as then-president, then
decided not to intervene by revealing the fraud. He did this dishonest
thing "because he wanted to help the nation along after years of apartheid."
- De Klerk was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize together with
Nelson Mandela for allowing these first multiracial elections to be held.
- Jan's Translation of the Dutch article:-
- South Africa's Election Was Unfair
- JOHANNESBURG: The first democratic Election in South
Africa was manipulated.
- According to former President De Klerk one million votes
for only one party and one candidate were deposited neatly in piles in
- De Klerk revealed these irregularities to journalists
in Nigeria. He said he decided back then not to intervene because he wanted
to help the nation move forward after years of Apartheid.
- [Note, my Dutch is a bit too weak to translate the last
paragraph properly, but there is little of interest in it. It merely says
that its the first election wherein the black population took part. The
ANC won the election with 62% of the vote, and that Nelson Mandela followed
De Klerk as the president].
- Here is the original Dutch text:- 'Verkiezingen Zuid-Afrika
- JOHANNESBURG - De eerste democratische verkiezingen in
Zuid-Afrika waren gemanipuleerd.
- Volgens toenmalig president De Klerk zijn een miljoen
stembiljetten voor een kandidaat en een partij ,,netjes in stapels'' in
- De Klerk onthulde de onregelmatigheden van 1994 voor
journalisten in Nigeria. Hij zei dat hij destijds besloot niet in te grijpen
om ,,de natie vooruit te helpen'' na de jarenlange apartheid.
- De Klerk liet als eerste Zuid-Afrikaanse president verkiezingen
houden waaraan ook de zwarte meerderheid van de bevolking mocht meedoen.
Winnaar van de stembusronde werd het zwarte Afrikaans Nationaal Congres
met ruim 62 procent van de stemmen. ANC-kopstuk en ex-gevangene Nelson
Mandela volgde De Klerk als president op.
