China is about to grab the sea route around the southern tip of Africa as it upgrades harbours, airports, and roads in South Africa and Namibia. Beijing is building huge barracks at Keetmanshoop, Karibib, and Grootfontein and in South Africa, all of which have been stocked with Chinese military vehicles. This means that the infrastructure and logistics are now in place for an occupation. The COVID-19 pandemic has given our government the excuse to bring in more Chinese soldiers to protect their assets.
All towns in South Africa and Namibia have Chinese shops, run by trained Chinese operatives.
In true Communist style, China has persuaded our government to seize our farms and homes without compensation. The attacks are causing farms to be abandoned, ready for Chinese to do things unseen. The Chinese have bought from our government essential mineral resources and aims to procure Canadian and Australian uranium mines. 75% of the work force in the mines and construction are Chinese, while our own domestic laborers are unemployed. Chinese workers are willing to endure 12-hour shifts for a meagre salary and some are said to serve their prison sentences as one of these workers. The result has been that there are more Chinese in Namibia than Germans or German speakers, particularly now that Beijing has built an electric power station in eastern Namibia.
The Chinese do not open bank accounts and pay no taxes. They export cash illegally and are able to buy up shares cheaply worldwide. In Namibia and South Africa, they have resorted to stirring up ethnic and racial violence and are actively fomenting rebellions against presidents.
Once China has bought all of South Africa and Namibia, it may legally place the countries under its administration to protect its interests from our kleptocrat governments. We would have no legal recourse. Neither the UN or the US would be able to legally step help. Zimbabwe’s president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, has already sold his country to Vladimir Putin while Russia and China compete for control of the southern half of Africa.
Beijing is about to make a grab for the sea route around the southern tip of Africa. Closing the Suez and the Panama canals would be relatively easy, which would isolate American naval and merchant ships by trapping them in the oceans where they are now.
South Africa’s strategic position has been noted since the Portuguese first explored its coastal areas in 1488. I was also the reason why the Dutch founded a supply station in Africa’s southern-most harbour, the Cape of Good Hope, for their ships in 1652. It is also why the British took the Cape from the Netherlands in 1806 after Wellington beat Napoleon’s forces in the Battle of Blaauwberg, which made the Dutch possession a spoil of war.
Cape Town’s has always helped ships in trouble around the Cape of Storms, the old name of Cape Town.Without the harbour in Walvis Bay in Namibia, or its counterparts in Cape Town, Simon’s Town, Mossel Bay, Port Elizabeth, East London, Durban, Richards Bay, and Maputo in Mozambique, the American Navy will be contained and left without drydocks and fresh supplies anywhere in the southern areas of the African continent. This is key, because Cape Town has always helped ships in when they are in trouble around the Cape of Storms, the old name of Cape Town.
China, however, will severely upend now that Beijing is upgrading the port at Walvis Bay and the airport near Windhoek, the capital of Namibia, and the harbor of Mozambique’s capital, Maputo..
South African Airlines was one of the best in the world before 1994 is now bankrupted. China is actively moving to buy the beleaguered airline, as well as all of the country’s airports and airfields. If they are allowed to acquire these facilities, the Chinese could set up air bases in Namibia, Botswana, and South Africa and would filly control the air space of each country.
The Leopard Valley Army Base, south of Windhoek, has been supplied with Chinese military vehicles, specifically with those that are needed to suppress internal resistance, according to veterans of the mechanised forces of South Africa. Huge barracks have been built at Keetmanshoop in the south, Karibib between Windhoek and Swakopmund, and Grootfontein in the north east on the way to Rundu. One of these is large enough to house the entire Namibian Army, meaning they are obviously not intended for Namibia’s military.
The whole infrastructure and logistics have been put in place. All China has to do is fly in or ship in their occupation forces.
Land, road, and rail strategy
The Caprivi Strip is a piece of land that was bought in the 19th century to connect Namibia (German South West Africa) with Maputo (then known as the Portuguese territory of Lourenço Marques) on the Indian Ocean. It is a simple matter to take the land from Botswana, Zambia, and Zimbabwe to control access between the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean. China is upgrading the road connecting Walvis Bay and Windhoek with Rundu on the Angolan border and Katima Mulilo at the end of the Caprivi Strip. This was a highly strategic military road built by South Africa when fighting Angolan Communist rebels, Cuba, and the Soviet Union during the bloody Bush War of the 1970s.
Nowadays, there is not a single town in South Africa or Namibia without Chinese shops, run by trained Chinese operatives who have scouted out the land for decades. Outside Pretoria is They have even build a huge Buddhist temple outside of South Africa’s administrative capital, Pretoria.
Furthermore, 13 police stations are already manned by Chinese personnel. When our government has done this dirty work for them, they can step in and take over. COVID-19 has given our government the excuse to have more Chinese-trained soldiers deployed on the streets to patrol for lockdown transgressors. This has led the army and police to be seen everywhere in the country.
South African Railways has almost come to a stop because the government cannot manage the country’s infrastructure. Many of the rail lines are essentially dead because the tracks have been sold as scrap metal. They may, however, be rebuilt as soon as China buys the railways.
Essential mineral sources
China has bought out South Africa’s government, as well as our operational mines for uranium, chrome, aluminium, gold, and other essential mineral resources. Beijing has attempted to procure Canadian and Australian uranium mines so that it will have sole recourse to uranium on Earth. The mines in Namibia end South Africa pay no taxes because China does not buy uranium at the international price, but at a daily price that will ensure that the mines are bankrupt and working at a loss.
China built an electric power station in the east of Namibia, near the border with South Africa, several years ago. It is currently non-operational and waiting for China to take over. In South Africa, President Cyril Ramaphosa was in charge of ESKOM, the South African electricity public utility, for five years. During that time, it was completely stripped of most of its assets. It is now bankrupt, no longer functional, and has shut down its electricity supply to areas that remain rotation. This is called “load shedding” and paralyses business. The coal supply to the power stations has been given to racially selected companies who are not efficient. Chinese loans could buy our sole supplier of electricity.
75% or more of the work force in both mines and construction projects are Chinese, while the laborers of South Africa and Namibia are unemployed. This creates a dissatisfied class that will lead to rebellion. South Africans who wish to work in Namibia have to undergo stringent skills tests every two years before they can obtain work permits, but unskilled Chinese are just shipped in via Walvis Bay.
Workers’ unions have already complained to Namibian President Hagee Geingob that all domestic projects are assigned to firms connected to the Chinese Communists. Tenders are allocated to China because Beijing quotes millions less than Namibians can afford. The tenders are also obtained illegally, a fact that was highlighted earlier in June when one of the tenders was revoked by the High Court in Namibia.
Namibians have long guessed that cash is exported illegally. The Namibian and South African governments have received huge loans from China and naively boast of their good relations with Beijing. Many students from both countries study in China, a process that began when China trained young people from Namibia, whom they hoped would be loyal to China’s Community Party, during the Bush War.
In Namibia and South Africa, ethnic violence is stirring between tribes and those who are rebellion against the presidents. In Namibia. 10 or more tribes are currently in opposition to the Ovambo, who are mainly from the South West Africa People’s Organisation (SWAPO). The Ovambo tribes, at least 7 of them, live on both sides of the Namibia/Angolan border. Since independence in 1990, the Ovambo have developed their own tribal areas north of the Etosha game reserve and taken over all government posts in Namibia’s tribal areas. The current president is a Damara, a tribe traditionally repressed by the Ovambo.
SWAPO is divided, and in South Africa the African National Congress (ANC) is split into four or more factions. Both SWAPO and the ANC, including Nelson Mandela, were classified as terrorist groups by the United States before they won separate one man, one vote elections.
In Namibia and South Africa kleptocrats rule. Corruption and wholescale theft of electrical supply companies like ESKOM and other government institutions weaken the countries and leave them vulnerable to China, who pumps in money by the billions.
Now that the Johannesburg Stock Exchange has fallen record lows, China can buy up its shares cheaply. They may do this worldwide to enlarge their grip on the world economy.
