Previously on SBPDL: Black-Run South Africa ‘Democratically’ Decides to Amend Their Constitution to Expropriate White-Owned Land Without Compensation…

Twenty six years after the fall of Apartheid in South Africa and the implementation of black rule (a nation truly proving democracy is nothing more than a racial headcount), we get the consequences of a people rejecting whites and mistakenly believing they can maintain the civilization and infrastructure they have inherited. [Eskom tells municipalities to prepare for stage 8 load-shedding,, January 13, 2020]:

Eskom was forced to implement stage 6 load shedding in December – its worst-ever blackout – sending the country into a panic as not many people were aware of what that stage actually meant for them.

Municipalities too were caught off-guard, with Johannesburg electricity distributor City Power saying at the time that it had no load-shedding schedule for Stage 6.

The year is 2020, and generation and maintenance challenges continue to mount at the state company which generates 96% of South Africa’s electricity.

As a result, all municipalities have been advised to adjust their load shedding schedule up to stage 8, the Buffalo City Municipality said in a statement on Saturday (11 January).

With each stage representing a curtailment of 5% of the national load, stage 8 will equate to 40% of the load being shed, the municipality said.

Under the previous load shedding schedule, four stages were implemented with between 1,000 MW and 4,000 MW of the national load shed – with ‘stage 4’ being the worst possible outcome for South African consumers.

Stage 4 will typically result in consumers being without power for a total of 24 hours spread out over four days, or a total of 48 hours over eight days.

However, Eskom has since revised its schedule to include up to eight different stages, and as much as 8,000 MW shed from the national grid.

During stage 8 load shedding, consumers could be without power for 48 hours over four days, or 96 hours in eight days.

Prepare for the worst

As municipalities prepare for the logistics of stage 8 load shedding, an energy expert warned that South Africans should prepare for the worst – regular stage 6 load-shedding, and 10-hour daily blackouts.

EE Business Intelligence MD Chris Yelland said Eskom’s declining energy availability factor (EAF) is a cause for serious concern.

The energy availability factor shows the percentage of Eskom’s generation capacity which is available, taking into account planned maintenance and unplanned breakdowns.

Yelland said the EAF data for 2019 paints a grim picture of ageing, under-maintained, and stressed power plants.

“The EAF for the full 2019 calendar year has hit a new record low of 67%, compared to the EAF of 72% for the 2018 calendar year,” said Yelland.

He added that the EAF for week 50 and week 51 of 2019 also hit record all-time lows of 59.7% and 58.0% respectively.

Citing an ageing fleet that requires higher levels of maintenance, Eskom has warned that the power system remains vulnerable and volatile, adding that getting back to stability will take some time.

One score and less than a decade after the implementation of black-rule in South Africa, the nation is advancing toward de-electrification.

What a way to prepare to kick off Black History Month in the USA with such… electric news!

Wakanda, as we all know, isn’t real. Neither can western civilization or the advancements in technology by whites in South Africa be either maintained or even kept alive by a nation powered by the mandate of black economic empowerment (BEE).


Remember, democracy is just a racial headcount, and though white people built South Africa (a nation once boasting nuclear weapons and the first heart transplant surgery), the now black-run nation is fueled by the black economic empowerment, which mandates affirmative action on behalf of the nearly 91 percent black residents of the nation.

Discrimination to benefit the majority, at the expense of the white majority… and the nation’s electrical grid.

    The culprit is an unusual one: A vandal who is selling the toxic oil, drawn from the transformer, to chefs who use it for ‎frying food in roadside stalls.

    In 2012, replacing transformers cost Kenya Power $4 million, about seven percent of its net profits, according to Kevin Sang

    I saw the highlights of that brawl, which only involved blacks (which I will elaborate on in a second). It was started by a black player on the team winning by 20 with less than a minute left who decided to do some “look at me” taunting. The black player who was “dissed” got visibly upset causing the instigator to attack him. Then it escalated. While black players started to violently throw themselves at each other in the stands, white spectators and players went running in fear as they would if they at a zoo if the doors to the tiger cage were suddenly thrown open. Conversely, the few black spectators in the seats behind the basket are seen to participate in the brawl, shoving and throwing punches.

    What saved this from elevating from a sports story to a national news story with a fatality was that a white photographer, while (stupidly) trying to film the brawl up close on his phone, had the courage and morality to grab and hold a stool the initial black instigator was about to send crashing down on another player’s head. No one commenting on the brawl this morning said anything other than, “It was lucky he was stopped from swinging that chair.” No one posited that the black guy actually was trying to kill someone, yet time and time again, we see that black violence escalates to deadly force in seconds no matter the perceived slight. Just like the Cleveland Brown player’s immediate impulse was to use a helmet to strike a player on the head with a potentially fatal blow, this Kansas player’s immediate impulse after someone stood up to his taunts was to grab a chair and try to strike someone in the head. When you realize that shooting someone for spilling soda on one’s sneakers is not uncommon in the black population, then this behavior in a basketball brawl makes sense.

    I haven’t been very impressed by most white South Africans I’ve met. 95% are as liberal and self-loathing as white Americans and Western Europeans if not more so. They also tend to have a poor understanding of their own history and the true history of Bantu settlement in South Africa, ie Bantus have been in most of South Africa for less time than whites have.

    They also don’t seem to be a very cohesive group either, especially in terms of how Afrikaaners hate English South Africans, but even within their own groups they aren’t very cohesive considering the adversity they face on a day to day basis. The mentality and attitude of white South Africans just goes to prove you can put a race of people in a vastly different and more hostile environement but it won’t change their fundamental racial charateristics and mentality. White South Africans are every bit as liberal and self-loathing as their Dutch and English ancestors. Also, during Apartheid they failed to realise the Jewish threat to their nation for what it was and gave Jews high status within their society and also had close relations with Israel, moves which proved fatal for their nation in the end as it was Jews who were behind Mandela and the ANC yet to this day 95% of white South Africans don’t understand this.

    What makes South Africa so unusual today is that it is the only country in the world with a 90%+ black population and an accompanying white population over 5%. No other country with that many blacks has even a fraction of that white population. And thus one is able to document that even being a mega-majority in a country, blacks still need affirmative action to obtain positions of prestige.

    The article stated that re-using vegetable oil breaks it down into harmful substances. That’s a standard procedure for using it in the ghetto. They would leave a large cooking pot full of it on the stove and use it for weeks to fry EVERYTHING. Occasionally the fire department would get the call for the “greaser fire” that started the whole kitchen going up in flames.

  39. SA generates about 50 GW and 75% of it is from burning coal.

    of course SA will get a pass from the international community on coal power plants, but the humorous part is that their electricity produced from coal will be going down year by year for natural causes – loss of brainpower required to run coal power plants, rather than any political pressure to close coal power plants.

    It wasn’t diversity that made South Africa the most advanced country in Africa. It was a White nation free of the encumbrance of a primitive and savage population who were largely excluded from participation in our civilization.

    Pelindaba was (I don’t know its present status) a research facility. The small power station there never produced more than 20 MW. It’s not a factor in the collapse of the electrical grid.

    Pelindaba produced South Africa’s small nuclear arsenal, which was dismantled before turning over the keys to the wildlife. Even the traitor FW de Klerk was not so depraved as to give a loaded gun to a monkey. It’s an interesting story;

    That report mentions how South African scientists, cut off by sanctions from most nuclear technology, invented low-tech solutions to fill the gap. I expect those would be classified, but there was an apocryphal report to the effect that they even invented a new, cheaper and more efficient method to split the atom:

    You seem to be a smart guy, so I would like to ask you a question. If what you are stating were even slightly true, let alone accurate, why would effectively every single thing you see and have all around you (look around you … the building, the institution, the device you are using, the electricity, the technology, the means of having gotten to where you are … literally every single thing), has not only essentially singlehandedly been produced by what can be called European people, but even homogeneous sub-populations of white people like the French or the Germans or the Dutch, etc., and no consequential number of things have been produced by any non-European people?

    The reality is that not diversity or scattering of characteristics is productive, but rather specialization is what is productive, focus is productive; and even then, a prerequisite is having achieved a certain core competency of basic intellect had been achieved.

    The most tragic thing about all of this over the last ~250 years, is that rather than having been used as a means and opportunity for blacks to emulate and lift themselves out of what is akin to the Stone Age by willingly adopting and accepting the teachings by Europeans and dispersing that among their own people, it has been nothing but degeneration of humanities single most important driver of improvement and success, european culture and society.

    I don’t think people quite understand what the current state already is when they say things like “we are going to enter a new ‘dark age’” because reality is we are and have been for a while already in a “dark age” as the structure that produced what we have has fully crumbled and become unproductive, while immense amounts of energy and focus go towards just wasted efforts like caring for people who can’t even feed themselves effectively and still reproduce out of any and all sustainable means.

    The staggering breadth and shocking magnitude of the consequences of what is happening and being done today by the very people who are misguided and lied to just as you have been, will invariably hit you like bricks in your lifetime, but unfortunately for everyone, our and my “I told you so’s” echoing to an invariable crescendo through time will be utterly useless as humanity crumbles all around you into some more primal state and people like you will still argue, as the electricity keeps going out, that the Africans you let just take over civilization will in fact not bring about an ever devolving condition akin to planet of the apes, even though you are already living it.

    Maybe I’m wrong, but I suspect what it all came down to was the SA being so foolish as to think they could hold on to what they have if they simply sacrificed Rhodesia, a country that we only in retrospect see as having way more in common than not, to satiate the beast; not realizing there was no sating of the beast possible.

    I believe it is also the reason for their fundamental strategic error and miscalculation that they should have essentially done an amputation by calving off a part of SA as a Boer only country and handing over the rest to the blacks without being too greedy about it. The Black Plague had infected them long ago and in their short sightedness they did not realize without amputation the flesh eating bacteria would consume the whole.

    Apartheid was put in place to keep the normally warring tribes from decimating each other.

    As a result, South Africa became one of the most economically stable countries on the African continent. Despite the so-called “evils” of apartheid, there was a large influx of black immigrants into South Africa. Food was plentiful.

    Apartheid was able to “keep the peace” and was successful until communism’s “inventors”-the jews-(despite having arms agreements with South Africa) helped dismantle apartheid. The rest is history…

    South Africa is a “basket case”; its white farmers (producers) are being murdered. Farms that have been “appropriated” by blacks are being looted–not usable for farming anymore because anything of value is being sold for scrap. It is obvious that SA blacks have no propensity for farming…not unlike jews.

    If one good thing comes of this, it will be the deserved “retribution” placed on the South African communists (and jew outsiders) for being a major part in destroying this once-prosperous country.

    I would welcome the immigration of SA whites to the USA as they would be an asset to our country, but current American immigration laws do not allow for the immigration of whites to the USA, despite white genocide taking place.

    There were powers at work in Rhodesia and South Africa several pay grades above DeKlerk responsible for turning them black.

    The world turned against them even though no one even knew or cared about them or even knew where they were. Well, maybe they knew where South Africa was…. its right in the name …but people are stupid.

    The Mandela’s were and will always remain terrorists. Someone thought it wise to hand over a country to them. Those kinds of irrational acts aren’t clamored for by the population. Those decisions are made in places beyond the borders. Places where terrorism leads to power which eventually becomes legitimized into government.

    Same is true of the Balkan’s and their fight to rid themselves of their Muslim problem. The world turned on them and even put troops on the ground to stop them. Now we all wear the scars of nurturing the Muslim hoard. Now they’ve gone global.

    Who would want those things except those who thrive on conflict and make money no matter which side wins?

  78. Breitbart is very touchy now, so commenters deliberately misspell the word “jew”. Even noncritical references to Jews will be removed.

    I was banned from Gateway Pundit for one negative observation about one Jewish person.

    anarchyst——–The remaining White South African farmers wish they had been proactive enough to sell their farms when there were still buyers.Still,both of my grandfathers were farmers.I can feel the pull of the land.Apparently,the Black government officials are now upset that White farmers have acquired debt on their land and equipment.The White farmers are not walking away and leaving the land free and clear. Seize the land.Swallow the debt.

    No, you are not wrong. Not by much, anyway. I don’t know whether anybody believed they could “satiate the beast”. They thought they could buy more time. I’m reminded of a drawing I saw as a child that made a big impression on me: a group of people travelling on a sled being drawn by horses over a snowy landscape, being pursued by a pack of wolves, and one of the passengers throwing a baby to the wolves. When South Africa threw Rhodesia to the wolves, I knew the government had no plan to fight for our country, either, and was just hoping to be the last eaten.

    When they had that referendum over negotiations, I supported it. We were promised that any agreement would be presented to the people for approval in a second referendum. I was personally hoping for the deal you described. Instead they gave away the whole farm, and reneged on the second referendum. Now we have nothing. Orania doesn’t count; it’s tiny, it exists only by permission, and has no sovereignty. Singapore, it’s not.

    If we had settled for the part of the country settled by Europeans before anybody ever saw a Babuntu; if we could have driven out the Babuntus to their historical homelands, and let them fight among themselves over those lands, we’d have a White homeland in South Africa bigger than many European countries. We could have made that work. Would America and Europe have left us alone then? What do you think?

    With respect, you have no idea what you’re talking about. Those low IQ black bandits, or “freedom fighters” ran in circles, all right. The only time those heroes actually got in a fight was when the SADF took the fight to them in their camps in neighbouring countries – and kicked their butts. They attacked defenceless civilians, planted bombs and landmines on lonely country tracks. Most of their victims were poor dumb blacks. Ferocious? Don’t make me laugh.

    @A Texas Reader

    I don’t know if you’re serious or not. Wind power is an ecological and economic disaster, killing thousands of birds, making large tracts of land virtually uninhabitable for wildlife and humans, and relying on heavy government subsidies to show any paper profits.

    Also being from Texas, I get lots of people coming to the door wanting me to sign up for “renewable” energy. A common selling point of these hucksters is that the flow of electricity is guaranteed, since the traditional energy sources will kick in if the wind doesn’t feel like blowing on a particular day. I always say, if the the traditional sources provide the reliability, why the hell would I switch to the unreliable generators?

    I am considering getting a small solar panel and power station (glorified storage battery) for use in emergency power in case there is a disruption in the distribution networks. Many people have gotten backup generators powered by natural gas. These will work as long as there is a strictly local interference in electrical lines. However, if the disruption is widespread enough, it will affect the natural gas distribution since natural gas transmission depends on largely electrical compressor stations. So, there is a place for “renewable” energy: strictly a disaster backup.

    I think Breitbart is one of those ‘counter-Jihad’ type websites. It was founded by a Jew after all and its purpose is more likely to incite hatred against Muslims, not point out the source of this immigration, and increase sympathy for Israel.

    Only Muslim hate is permitted, don’t identify who is running these refugee rescue agencies or driving these crazy regime change wars and interventions though.

  93. How long before the cries to help feed the South Africans will begin?

  94. RonaldB——–I am putting in solar/battery backup for my house.However,that is only for a few led lights,chest freezer,and to charge flashlight, cell phone,and radio batteries. Running my house on solar/wind with typical electric loads would cost 100K. That would be stupid. All the women at work,and many of the men are true believers in “renewables”. I agree with them. It can be done because it HAS been done.Prior to 1700 and the industrial revolution,it was all solar,water,wind,and muscle( human and animal) powered. I have showed them pictures of how peasants lived.The men think technology will come to the rescue.The women tend to think they will be princesses.

    Next in the crosshairs is Russia Today

    – it’s as if someone pulled a switch or bribed Vladimir Putin but Russia Today was pushing daily Holocaust propaganda – big demands to make Holocaust denial a severe crime anywhere in the EU and the official Russian party line now seems to be to except the official (lying) 6 Million Gassed Jews Holocaust myth as a fundamentalist religious myth but position Russia, Soviet Union as the good guys who stopped this and Germany and really all White Europeans in the West including now the Poles and Ukrainians as guilty of this terrible Holocaust sin.
