    HI Guys, I know we meant to only post poetry here, but I had to use this forum because I know a lot of poets come here....

    Over the past few months a right-wing coup plot by a group of white Afrikaners (Afrikaners were mostly behind all the otrocities of Apartheid where tons of black people got killed) has been discovered and they were planning to attack and blow up most of South African state buildings, the Stock exchange, assasinate politicians...but Anyway, the strikes have begun...this morning Nine bomb blasts tore through SOWETO and one person has been killed so far...their targets are black people..at the moment we don't know where or when..it could be a once off incident or something that is set to strike again...keep your eyes and ears open for it...or visit online S.A newspapers on www.iol.co.za or www.mg.co.za or www.suntimes.co.za-the last thing we need is this....thanks family...

    lo'

    Hello Mhaya lo' ... thank you for sharing with us. I visited one of the news sites and read the story. Gosh, it seems trouble and danger is on every side. My prayers are with you.

    Mhaya lo' ... did I read in a previous post that you are a journalist? I was thinking how wonderful it would be for you to have your own forum in the Columnists area, sharing articles about Africa with us. First hand and up front information regarding the lives of our Sisters and Brothers ... coming from a Sister that's there. Wow, seems like it would be a blessing to all that read you.

    Unfortunately, there's no pay (money) for the columnists or any contributors here on Destee, but if you'd be interested ... just say the word and it's done.

    Again ... my prayers are with you and thanks for sharing.

    :heart:

    Destee

    Hello everybody, thank u for your response...so far two white people have been pinned to the attacks...Yes, I am a journalist Destee and Since the attacks, our news agency has had two bomb attacks and lost of threatning calls...so, coming to work is quite an "never know what's going to happen" kindda thing. But then again that's why one becomes a journo right...

    thanks guys..
    lo'

    Prayer

    Lord please let the thunder
    in south africa cease

    Lord please let their enemies
    be brought to justice so that
    we might live in peace

    The guns, the bomb blasts
    sheds castastrophe

    All that we ask is for love
    with your mercy grace and
    understanding so that this
    world will do right under
    your commanding

    This we pray


    Amen
