Is the South African Government Dominated by Marxists?

It is surprising that many observers have dismissed the very real concerns of communist domination in South Africa as an "allegation" and a "rumour". When 16 of the 26 cabinet members appointed by the ANC are members, or "former members", of the South African Communist Party (SACP) then one has to reluctantly admit that Manrxism has far more than a foothold in the New South Africa. Even more incredible is the attempt to ridicule any who "claim that the election was rigged".

The hard and objective reality is that the SA elections may have been an example of the most fraudulent election ever held. Thousands were murdered during the 4 months of electioneering in the run-up to the elections. Millions of ballot papers went missing just before the elections. Thousands of voting stations reported irregularities; shortages of ballot papers, incorrect ballots, no ballot boxes, no ink with which to mark voters, no batteries for the ultra violet lamps to check if the voter had already voted, inadequate security, and no box for the Inkatha Freedom Party of Dr. Buthelezi on many millions of the ballot sheets. The leader of the Democratic Party claimed that there were literally millions of incidents of fraud and irregularities in the election.
