Johannesburg Catholic School sex scandal: Grade 8s allegedly forced to 'rape' school 'chair' and 'bus seat' by Matrics (Seniors)
The MEC for Education's spokeswoman says if true the alleged gang behaviour violates the law. The School's representative released a statement condemning the behaviour if true, and stating they would put the welfare of the grade 8s allegedly victimized first

With school 'initiation' repeatedly hitting headlines, since the sexual abuse alleged at Parktown, a Catholic school has gotten its own share of the spotlight. The Offense while not the same as Parktown, still violates the law and is sexual abuse if proven to be more than just alleged. Mock rapes also would suggest real rapes to come, making this perhaps more serious than the terrible human rights abuses alleged at other school settings.

The prompt response to media, by the school not the SACBC which likely wouldn't respond, in this case (by the school) is a good sign. The SACBC Southern African Catholic Bishops Conference, under the very unprofessional press leadership of Fr Chris Townsend, usually ignores any media requests on scandalous accusations or punishes journalist, such as the SACNS for reporting on them (we now get SACBC press releases long after papers such as the Mail and Guardian after refusing to censor an interview we did).

"Education spokesperson Charles Phahlane said Education MEC Barbara Creecy phoned the St David's Marist Inanda school on Saturday about the allegation.

"If this is true, it is very serious because it violates the SA Schools Act and the Sexual Offences Act," Phahlane said.

Headmaster Malcolm Williams and chief executive of the school, Mike Greeff, said in a statement that the school board, management and the staff condemned conduct that intimidated, humiliated or frightened anyone."

Al Jazeera points to militants resurrected from the dead and according to US releases re-killed, and different nations have seen an upsurge of anti-Americanism, claiming that civilians are targeted including non-combatants. None of the USA arguments have any standing in International Law.

White / European / Caucasian, call it what you want, but South Africa's lighter skinned residents face extinction according to a recent study


White / European / Caucasian, call it what you want, but South Africa's lighter skinned residents face extinction according to a recent study
Race Relations report attributes low birth rates and high immigration, ignoring the fact... white South Africans are the subject of Government imposed discrimination.

Ruling party officials including the President, Jacob Zuma, have claimed that English speaking whites are not true South Africans.

The ANC, every election, campaigns on the basis that Whites are a threat to the population. Parts of the country, due to intimidation, are not safely accessible to whites.

"Farm Murders", similar to the land invasions of Zimbabwe are now commonplace, especially against farmers who won't give or sell their land to the government, to be given to black communities who are the grassroots support of the Ruling Africanist Political Party: the ANC or African National Congress. The study authors site a growing mixed race population as a cause for concern, given the possibility of a court case to give a child of a white and black the same rights / benefits as black South Africans in a workplace where discrimination against non-whites is legally enforced.

"Johannesburg - If a new study is anything to go by, South Africa’s white population may be extinct by the year 2161.

A new report by the South African Institute of Race Relations revealed that the country’s white population was declining by about 0.3% every five years.

The decline has been attributed by the institute to lowered fertility rates affecting the middle class across all population groups, as well to continued white emigration.

City Press extrapolated the figures and discovered that, if the current decline trends persisted, white South Africans would be extinct by the year 2161.
Figures contained in the institute’s yearly South Africa Survey showed that South Africa’s white and Indian population were declining, while the country’s coloured and black African population groups were growing."
