Social media statements by South African Ambassador
No doubt by now Your Majesty have been informed of a social media uproar caused by the South African Ambassador to Denmark, ms Zindzi Mandela, resulting from a number of statements made by the ambassador on Twitter a few days ago. These statements were of a very rude, racist and offensive nature. Amongst other things, the ambassador referred to the white minority in South Africa as “cowards” and claimed that the famed professor Christiaan Barnard, who were decorated by Denmark , amongst others,for performing the first heart transplant, was taught his skill by his black gardener. These claims, apart from being blatantly untrue, is humiliating and degrading in many ways.
Front National SA, a political party standing for the right to self determination and freedom of the Afrikaner people and those who associate with our cause, was deeply offended by this, to the extent that we fully support the civil rights movement, Afriforum, who already called on the Minister for International Relations for the recall of the ambassador and for punitive steps to be taken.
I would like to politely remind Your Majesty, and the Danish government, that ms Mandela is certainly not representative of the majority of South Africans in her conduct. The motive behind her statements is, however, in line with the policy of the ANC government through which minority groups, such as the Afrikaner, have been marginalized from the labour force, from sports participation and education through race-based legislation and are now meant to become the victim of the disastrous ANC policy of expropriation of property without compensation.
Ms Mandela represents a section of the black population who gained positions of influence and wealth through family ties and connections, which we refer to as “cadre deployment” in South Africa. This basically means that a select group of powerful and immensely wealthy persons and their families are in control of many components of our government, economy and society.
They are predominantly completely out of touch with the realities of poverty and unemployment amongst the black majority population and their only means of keeping control of the masses is to pick a “common enemy”. The most popular scapegoat for all the problems in our country, which is in large the result of incompetent government, corruption and nepotism, is the white person, in particular the Afrikaner. The conduct of the ambassador is a prime example of that.
The Afrikaner nation descends from various European nations, including the Danish people. In actual fact, one of the first Europeans to play a significant part in the history of our country was the surgeon, Peder van Meerhoff, who was a Danish subject of king Frederik III, the ancestor of Your Majesty. He is the ancestor of a number of Afrikaner families such as the Saaymans, Bosmans and others.
We, as Afrikaners, but also South Africans, are embarrassed by the conduct, hate speech, naked racism and complete lack of diplomacy shown by the ambassador to Denmark. Ms Mandela has been enjoying the hospitality and civility of Your Majesty’s government and subjects for a reasonable period of time, yet now reveals that she bears an inherent hatred towards white people and the civilisation represented by Europe.
In the light of this we would sincerely appreciate it if Your Majesty’s government would consider voicing your firm opposition to the statements made by ms Mandela. The democracy loving, freedom appreciating and peaceful people of Denmark is not known to associate with such convictions. The Afrikaner people neither.
With much respect, I remain
