These pages are updated on a weekly basis. At the same time I must mention that this web site is a personal site and I'm under no obligation to update it weekly. Please read the disclaimer for further information.
However, for the sake of all my regular visitors I will endeavour to update it regularly (as close as possible to "weekly").
On the right are the different sections you'll find here. Links to other sites will open in it's own window.
Please note that this site is content rated and contain material that might offend more sensitive people. I am protected by the South African constitution on free speech and declare that I'm not a member of any right or left wing organisations seeking to destabilize nor disrupt the governing party of this country.
Toplist of South African expatriate / emigrant sites.
The 1994 elections came as a shock to most white South Africans.
We got our "war" food together, joined the local neighbourhood watch, stocked up on ammunition and secured our homes. We had no idea what to expect and was scared of the "unknown". To top it all, we were by far in the minority and afraid of what was to come.
"Die swart gevaar" was upon us and there was nothing we could do about it. A new and exciting time awaited us. People left the country with ideas of observing from a safe distance. And once it's safe to come back, decide if it's worth it.
I'm pretty sure that most people (across all races) would've done the same if they could afford it, but alas.., someone had to stay behind! And that's just as well, because things did turn out pretty good during and after the elections.
Why then have this site? Pure frustration! There are more hands in the cookie jar, less money to honour election promises and dwindling infrastructure and services. Sure the whites are used to a better life in this country. With a black government in power, many more resources and the whole world behind them, why can't we all have the life that the "privileged" whites had before?
So this site was born. It provides not only up to date news about what's happening in South Africa, but is also a personal outlet for venting the frustrations that we live with in the new improved South Africa. And that goes for all race groups (mostly).
