AFRICASTALLESTMAN INTERVIEWS CYRIL RAMAPHOSA, PRESIDENT OF SOUTH AFRICA.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN INTERVIEWS CYRIL RAMAPHOSA, PRESIDENT OF SOUTH AFRICA.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Sawubona, Mr President.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Good afternoon, Africastallestman, I did not know you speak Zulu.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Just enough to order food in the restaurant.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
I was hesitant to grant you this interview, but my aides prevailed on me to grant you an interview, or you will take to the Internet, to destroy my reputation.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Africastallestman is not out to destroy anyone’s reputation but to expose the facts for the public to judge the actions or inactions of our Leaders and Politicians.
Why have you not condemned the brutal killings, and despicable torture inflicted on non-South African Blacks, by marauding Black South African Youths?
Whites never inflicted such brutalities on Black South Africans during White Apartheid.
Under Black Apartheid, Blacks are killing Blacks.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
What is Black Apartheid?

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Black Apartheid is when Black South Africans liberated from White Apartheid, inflict apartheid era policies, on Blacks from Nigeria, Zimbabwe, Malawi, Somalia, etc.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Africastallestman, this is not Apartheid, it is a fight for economic survival.
Poor, disenfranchised people have to find a scapegoat to blame for their woes.
While this is sad, I am also glad that they have not vented their anger on Whites.
If they attack Whites, I am sure President Donald Trump will do something about it. The South African economy is in dire straits, and we do not want US sanctions imposed on South Africa.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
I was hoping you would claim that terrorists from post-Gaddafi Libya are behind the killings.
That was President Alhaji Muhammadu Buhari’s public response, to President Donald Trump’s condemnation, of the killings of Christians in Nigeria.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Why should I condemn the killings of foreign Black Africans in South Africa when Presidents Buhari, Biya, Kiir, Nkurunziza, al-Sisi are presiding over massacres in their own countries, while denying any culpability?
More Nigerians are killed in Nigeria in one day than in South Africa in one year.
Have you complained about that?

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
I have condemned every African dictator and murderous misanthrope.
Mr. President, do you subscribe to the idea that Blacks from other African countries are taking away jobs from Black South Africans?

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Not really, but the poor masses have to vent their anger on someone. If not foreign Blacks, they would shift their anger and start killing affluent Black South Africans. You realize Blacks will never kill White South Africans except in botched robbery attempts.
They better kill foreign Blacks than White or wealthy Black South Africans.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
I abhor your use of the term, foreign Blacks. When Black South Africans, including Nelson Mandela sought refuge in Nigeria during Apartheid, they were not considered foreigners. They were housed, fed and educated ex gratia. Other African countries helped but Nigeria was the linchpin of all the African efforts. You are killing your blood brothers and sisters, not foreigners.
This may be the height of ingratitude.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Sorry for the use of the term, foreigners. Some of them are drug peddlers and criminals.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Who are the drug users? There are more Black South Africans involved in crimes and drugs than non-South African Blacks.
Drugs, poverty, religion, and violence are bedmates, and your country has all four. Why blame non-South African Blacks who are boosting your economy through small businesses, as the cause of the economic woes in South Africa?
Some experts suggest it is due to Black leadership and corrupt Black leaders.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Africastallestman, please do not emulate the Western press that is predicting doom for South Africa. We can manage South Africa better than the White practitioners of Apartheid.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
I am yet to see the Black management skills you are touting. What I see is corruption, state capture and increasing violence as in violent crimes, murders during robberies, and killing of Blacks from other African countries.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
You will soon see changes as I bring my private sector skills into government.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Mr. President, I understand you are a billionaire and was Chairman of MTN from 2002 to 2013. Some people suggest that your billions came from Nigeria where MTN is reaping windfall profits, year in and year out.
Concurrently, you are presiding over the killings of Nigerians whose country made you a billionaire.
How do you justify your silence?

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Julius MALEMA condemned the killings and his poll numbers tanked. While saddened privately, I will not publicly condemn the killings or the next President of South Africa will be White.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Given the orgy of killings, reverting to White Apartheid is better than the current Black Apartheid where Black billionaire South African politicians are aiding and abetting the vicious public lynching of non-South African Blacks.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Do not mention a return to White Apartheid or you will leave South Africa in a body bag. And never publish that I am a billionaire. I do not want the mob turning on me.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
How would non-South African Blacks operating small businesses built on enterprise and sweat equity, be the cause of mass unemployment in South Africa?
How would a small Nigerian grocer be denying Black South Africans jobs?

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
These Nigerians sell Nigerian food and repatriate their profits to Nigeria. Black South Africans have forsaken South African food and are now clamoring for jollof rice. If care is not taken, Black South Africans will turn into criminals as Nigerians.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Were Nigerians turned into South Africans by MTN? MTN makes more money in Nigeria in one day, than the entire Nigerian businesses make in one year in South Africa.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Food is not the same as cell phones. Food goes into your body system, but cell phones do not. Eating Nigerian food will make you a Nigerian! I like jollof rice. It is delicious.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Why not expel the non-South African Blacks instead of killing them?

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
No way, if we expel them, the mob may turn on the one percent of Black South Africans who benefitted from the dismantling of Apartheid and became billionaires. We will continue to use them as human shields.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
You did not do badly, going from a trade unionist to a billionaire in a few years.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
As a trade unionist, I knew which companies to shake down using my political credential as the longtime Secretary of the ANC (African National Congress)

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Zimbabweans are looting and destroying South African properties in retaliation for the killing of Zimbabweans. Will you be surprised if Nigerians start boycotting South African businesses domiciled in Nigeria?

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
South African businesses in Nigeria are safe as they are all connected with corrupt Nigerian politicians.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Is your legacy going to be, the South African President who presided over the genocide of non-South African Blacks, or the President who ended the killings started under President Jacob Zuma?
Fatou Bensouda may be coming for your behind when you leave office.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Not really, I will try to persuade the South African Parliament to withdraw from the Treaty of Rome. Jacob Zuma tried and failed.

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Is it fair to insinuate that Jacob Zuma and Cyril Ramaphosa are accessories to these killings by not publicly condemning them?

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Are you labeling me a criminal?

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
Indirectly, when a President of a country fails to publicly condemn criminal acts with domestic and International implications, that Leader is an accomplice.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
This interview is over. I have my flaws, but I am not a criminal

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
The ICC will make that determination. Thanks, and please do something fast as the whole world has beamed her searchlight on South Africa. If Blacks cannot manage South Africa, maybe White Apartheid should return.

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
This interview is over. You mean the Whites should return and confiscate my billions?

AFRICASTALLESTMAN:
You are doing the same thing to non-South African Blacks. The hatred shown by Black South Africans to non- Black South Africans will have lasting impacts on the relationship between South Africa and the rest of Africa.
Hamba kahle

PRESIDENT RAMAPHOSA:
Good-bye.
