P. W. Botha: A speech from the heart 


The following is a speech made by former South African
President P.W. Botha to his Cabinet in 1985. The
reprint was written by David G. Mailu for the Sunday
Times, a South African newspaper, dated August 18,
1985. Read it carefully and take a close look at

" Pretoria has been made by the White mind for the
White man. We are not obliged even the least to try to
prove to anybody and to the Blacks that we are
superior people. We have demonstrated that to the
Blacks in a thousand and one ways. The Republic of
South Africa that we know of today has not been
created by wishful thinking.

We have created it at the
expense of intelligence, sweat and blood. Were they
Afrikaners who tried to eliminate the Australian
Aborigines? Are they Afrikaners who discriminate
against Blacks and call them Niggers in the States?
Were they Afrikaners who started the slave trade?
Where is the Black man appreciated? England
discriminates against its Blacks and their "Sus" law
is out to discipline the them. Canada , France ,
Russia and Japan all play their discrimination too.
Why the hell then is so much noise made about us? Why
are they biased against us? I am simply trying to
prove to you all that there is nothing unusual we are
doing that the so called civilized worlds are not

doing. We are simply an honest people who have come
out aloud with a clear philosophy of how we want to
live our own White life.

We do not pretend like other Whites that we like
Blacks. The fact that Blacks look like human beings
and act like human beings does not necessarily make
them sensible humans. Hedgehogs are not porcupines and
lizards are not crocodiles simply because they look alike.

If God wanted us to be equal to the Blacks, he
would have created us all of a uniform colour and
intellect. But he created us differently: Whites,
Blacks, Yellow, Rulers and the ruled. Intellectually,
we are superior to the Blacks; that has been proven
beyond any reasonable doubt over the years.

I believe that the Afrikaner is an honest, God fearing person,
who has demonstrated practically the right way of
being. Nevertheless, it is comforting to know that
behind the scenes, Europe, America , Canada ,
Australia and all others are behind us in spite of
what they say. To prove my point, Comrades, does
anyone of you know a White country without an
investment or interest in South Africa? Who buys our
gold? Who buys our diamond? Who trades with us? Who is
helping us develop our nuclear weapon? The very truth
is that we are their people and they are our people.
It's a big secret. The strength of our economy is
backed by America, Britain and Germany. It is our
strong conviction therefore, that the Black is the raw
material for the White man. So Brothers and Sisters,
let us join hands together to fight this Black devil.
I appeal to all Afrikaners to come out with any
creative means of fighting this war. Surely God cannot
forsake his own people whom we are. By now every one
of us has seen it practically that the Blacks cannot
rule themselves. Give them guns and they will kill
each other. They are good in nothing else but making
noise, dancing, marrying many wives and indulging in
sex. Let us all accept that the Black man is the
symbol of poverty, mental inferiority, laziness and
emotional incompetence. Isn't it plausible? The White
man is created to rule the Black man. Come to think of
what would happen one day if you woke up and on the
throne sat a Kaffir! Can you imagine what would happen
to our women? Does anyone of you believe that the
Blacks can rule this country?

Hence, we have good reasons to let them all the
Mandelas rot in prison, and I think we should be
commended for having kept them alive in spite of what
we have at hand with which to finish them off. I wish
to announce a number of new strategies that should be
put to use to destroy this Black bug. We should now
make use of the chemical weapon. Priority number one,
we should not by all means allow any more increases of
the Black population lest we be choked very soon. I
have exciting news that our scientists have come with
an efficient stuff. I am sending out more
researchers to the field to identify as many venues as
possible where the chemical weapons could be employed
to combat any further population increases. The
hospital is a very strategic opening and should be
fully utilized. The food supply channel should be
used. We have enveloped excellent slow killing poisons
and fertility destroyers. Our only fear is in case
such stuff came into their hands as they are bound to
start using against us if you care to think of the
many Blacks working for us in our homes.

However, we are doing the best we can to make sure
that the stuff remains strictly in our hands.
Secondly, most Blacks are vulnerable to money
inducements. I have set aside a special fund to
exploit this venue. The old trick of divide and rule
is still very valid today. Our experts should work day
and night to set the Black man against his fellowman.
His inferior sense of morals can be exploited
beautifully. And here is a creature that lacks
foresight. There is a need for us to combat him in
long term projections that he cannot suspect. The
average Black does not plan his life beyond a year:
that stance, for example, should be exploited. My
special department is already working round the clock
to come out with a long-term operation blueprint. I am
also sending a special request to all Afrikaner
mothers to double their birth rate. It may be
necessary too to set up a population boom industry by
putting up centres where we employ and support fully
White young men and women to produce children for the
nation. We are also investigating the merit of uterus
rentals as a possible means of speeding up the growth
of our population through surrogate mothers.

For the time being, we should also engage a higher gear to make sure that Black men are separated from their women and fines imposed upon married wives who bear illegitimate children.

I have a committee working on finding better methods of inciting Blacks against each other and encouraging murders among themselves. Murder cases among Blacks should bear very little punishment in order to encourage them.

My scientists have come up with a drug that could be
smuggled into their brews to effect slow poisoning
results and fertility destruction. Working through
drinks and manufacturing of soft drinks geared to the
Blacks, could promote the channels of reducing their
population. Ours is not a war that we can use the
atomic bomb to destroy the Blacks, so we must use our
intelligence to effect this. The person-to-person
encounter can be very effective.

As the records show that the Black man is dying to go
to bed with the White woman, here is our unique
opportunity. Our Sex Mercenary Squad should go out and
camouflage with Apartheid Fighters while doing their
operations quietly administering slow killing poison
and fertility destroyers to those Blacks they thus

We are modifying the Sex Mercenary Squad by
introducing White men who should go for the militant
Black woman and any other vulnerable Black woman. We
have received a new supply of prostitutes from Europe
and America who are desperate and too keen to take up
the appointments.

My latest appeal is that the maternity hospital
operations should be intensified. We are not paying
those people to help bring Black babies to this world
but to eliminate them on the very delivery moment. If
this department worked very efficiently, a great deal
could be achieved.

My Government has set aside a special fund for
erecting more covert hospitals and clinics to promote
this programme. Money can do anything for you. So
while we have it, we should make the best use of it.
In the meantime my beloved White citizens, do not take
to heart what the world says, and don't be ashamed of
being called racists. I do not mind being called the
architect and King of Apartheid. I shall not become a
monkey simply because someone has called me a monkey.
I will still remain your bright star...His Excellency
