South Africa Has A Whites-Only Town

South Africa Has A Whites-Only Town

South has a town where black and coloured people are not allowed to live called Orania. According to several reports, only whites live in this town.

Said a BBC journalist who visited the town:

I spent a few days in Orania, a town established in 1991 where no black people live.

I was part of a BBC crew, including Zimbabwean journalist Stanley Kwenda, who were accredited to visit.

And during that time, I did not see any other black people in the town of 1,000 – an unusual experience in modern South Africa.

It is an Afrikaner-only town, where only Afrikaans is spoken, because of fears about “diluting culture”.

Orania was founded by one Boshoff Snr as a registered company during the last years of apartheid, with the idea of making it a safe haven for Afrikaners. Dutch, German and French settlers who arrived and colonised South Africa in the 1600s. Afrikaners dominated South Africa for many decades and introduced the apartheid system which was based on racial segregation

One of the Orania residents told the BBC:

“I see nothing wrong with apartheid!

Of course you get the petty apartheid: ‘You use this toilet I use that toilet’, I don’t think that was necessary but the real apartheid as Dr Verwoerd saw it, there was nothing wrong with it. 

While the town’s administrators insist that it’s not about the colour of skin, no black people or coloureds can live there.

Prospective residents are screened by the town council using a strict criterion, and the key criterion is being an ethnic Afrikaner. Just being able to speak Afrikaans is not enough.

Orania prints its own money and runs its own banks, and has its own holidays. It even has and flies its own flag.

According to a report by WION, the residents of Orania have said their next goal is the creation of an Afrikanner republic.

Y bother to mix with those Afrikanaars .Problem with us blacks is bcoz we have an inferiority complex plus we lower living standards .Compare Harare in 1980 and today. Harare is now worse than a Growth Point. You walk along 1st in Harare there is human waste all over which never used to happen during Smith,s days. People are roasting maize cobs all over the CBD. Matuzvi and urine everywhere.Y do we want to mix with whites if they don't like us y force them to love us.

If they consider themselves sovereign, it's time to show them reality. We ask for South African land reform to start by that town. We ask all other South Africans to move freely I. that area but them oranians shld produce a passport to goi out of that area. We ask for a war and no South African military shld support them. Nonsense !!

Orania is not new to some of us. Its not like you wont see blacks no no. They are allowed to work there,but kana nguva dzakwana off the private land kumba kwenyu. I dont see anything wrong with self determination,as long as you dont carve the state or make statelets. If you recognise the soverign then itai not kuti toda kudambura nyika nepakati ahh

men and women fell before 1994 for this. South Africa is a rainbow nation. these guys are fighting RSA independence and ethics of its establishment. this is unpatriotic treasonous act to undermine a constitutional nation and currency etc. these guys must be brought to book, South African in a all race nation and everyone is allowed to any place with no racial nor tribal boundaries. this is treason, they want a nation within a nation. undermining SA govt? tell them to go back to Europe and leave Africa for Africans and with fact, southern Africa belongs to the black skin anyone else is a visitor. For the first time I am supporting ZANU PF ideas of what sovereignty is. Land belongs to vene venyika

This is common even in Zimbabwe. The difference is on the selection lines. Most rural areas in Zimbabwe are blacks only areas. Some areas are even one political party areas. You can not just fit in.

However, as of Orania in Southern Africa, clearly it is another country like Lesotho, a country within the South African borders. It has its own flag, currency and parliament. It should be counted as Africa's umpteenth Nation.
