Lohnro earns 70% of its profits in Africa. Tanzania shortly expropriated the businesses from Lonhro, which tried to break Tanzania's economy by interfering with its World Bank arrangments.

He served part of a 34-year prison sentence in Equatorial Guinea for his role in a failed coup d'état in 2004, before receiving a presidential pardon on humanitarian grounds on 2 November 2009. Mann was extradited from Zimbabwe to Equatorial Guinea on 1 February 2008, having been accused of planning a coup d'état to overthrow the government by leading a mercenary force into the capital Malabo in an effort to overthrow President Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo. Charges in South Africa of aiding a coup in a foreign country were dropped on 23 February 2007, but the charges remained in Equatorial Guinea, where he had been convicted in absentia in November 2004. He lost an extradition hearing to Equatorial Guinea after serving three years of a four-year prison sentence in Zimbabwe for the same crimes and being released early on good behaviour. Upon Mann's arrival in Equatorial Guinea for his trial in Malabo, public Prosecutor Jose Olo Obono said that Mann would face three charges – crimes against the head of state, crimes against the government, and crimes against the peace and independence of the state. On 7 July 2008, he was sentenced to 34 years and four months in prison by a Malabo court. He was released on 2 November 2009, on humanitarian grounds.

The Incredible London Interior Design
 
01:21
Back in 1930s London, few young millionaires cut as wide a swath as Sir Alfred Beit. The handsome MP was rapturously rich, thanks to South African diamond mines and Rhodesian railways, and also notably amorous, having been named co- respondent in a headline divorce suit. Little surprise that such a bon vivant would plump for lively living quarters in the city. Around 1937 Beit acquired an 1856 Italianate pleasure palace designed by James Knowles and then hired a quartet of ultrafashionable adepts—architects Lord Gerald Wellesley and Trenwith Wills and decorators Sibyl Colefax and John Fowler—to leaven its pomp. Soon Beit and his guests were dining in a flamboyant turquoise chamber drizzled with glistening silver leaf and thumbing books in a deliriously pretty library tricked out in Bavarian rococo style. Everywhere hung canvases by Goya, Vermeer, and other Old Masters, many of which now grace Russborough House, the Irish museum that was once Beit’s country estate. The baronet’s sparkling London digs had greatly dimmed by 2004, when a couple with young children took it in hand. Previous, less discriminating occupants had dulled the walls and pillars with hospital-whites, -beiges, and -greens; gold paint smeared the capitals in the 56-foot-long music room. “The place was fabulous but crumbling,” says designer Kevin Roberts of the Manhattan interiors studio Haynes-Roberts, which renovated the mansion with London’s Stanhope Gate Architecture. The assignment also came with significant strings attached: The house, part of the queen’s Crown Estate, is a Grade II* historic site, a relatively rare government designation that restricts alterations. In this case, no room could be remodeled and no finishes applied without approval. Subdividing rooms to construct baths and the like “is tolerated,” says Stanhope Gate principal Alireza Sagharchi (a favorite of the Prince of Wales), “as long as the work is reversible and can be removed without detriment to the original structure.” To make the new master bedroom, for example, his firm installed a bronze framework within a recessed second-floor terrace, and Haynes-Roberts outfitted it with upholstered walls and elegant millwork. “Either you come to a historic project and restore it or you create what might have been. We did something in between,” notes Roberts’s partner, architect Timothy Haynes. Still, like Beit’s own chic revamp, Roberts explains, “This job was about bringing past and present together. The clients wanted the house beautifully restored and furnished appropriately in an up-to-date manner. It was the most limiting thing we’ve ever done—and also the most creative.” The homeowners turned out to have as much appreciation for spirited revisions as Beit did—though it’s anybody’s guess what the baronet would have made of the gold-tiled basement swimming pool and monogrammed hammam. (Because these additions were underground, they did not run afoul of preservation rules.) In the entrance hall, the 1850s columns have been lacquered coal-black, recalling the famous Purbeck-marble ones at London’s 12th-century Temple Church. Their striking darkness gives a distinct coherence to the heroic space, relating the columns to the staircase’s iron balustrade and the floor’s Belgian-bluestone inserts

Cutaway of Mugabe SOUNDBITE (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "The Liberation of a people is a great success of the time.

SOUNDBITE (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Well at the end of my term, I will want as I said, to retire, but not from politics entirely, no no no I can't retire from that unless the Almighty says 'enough is enough'." 11. Mugabe and entourage leaving. STORYLINE: Zimbabwe's embattled and isolated leader said on Friday that his government will take a stake in privately operated mining enterprises in the mineral-rich southern African nation - but he does not intend to nationalise the industry as he has commercial farmland. In an exclusive interview with The Associated Press, the 81 year old, who has ruled Zimbabwe since a guerrilla war brought independence 25 years ago, said he plans to retire when his term expires in 2008 and live between the countryside and the city, farming and writing. He spoke in a 75-minute interview at the UN World Summit. He said he was pleased to have attended the Summit but it produced very little by way of expectations toward promised goals to fight poverty and eliminate trade tariffs. Mugabe blamed the United States and said the US should not be allowed to derail the agenda of dozens of other nations just because it is the strongest and wealthiest. Mugabe himself has been the subject of international condemnation. His government is accused of stealing elections, most recently in March, and of gross human rights abuses to suppress opposition. On a national level, Mugabe said his government would take a share in private mining enterprises because it wants Zimbabweans to benefit from their own natural resources. And he expects companies currently mining there, including the multi-national Anglo American, to understand that desire. Zimbabwe mines coal, chromium ore, asbestos, gold, nickel, copper, iron ore, vanadium, lithium, tin and platinum group metals as well as diamonds, emeralds and semiprecious stones. But he stressed there are no plans to nationalise the industry, as he had threatened to do when first was elected. Mugabe also said his government has no plans to seize white-owned businesses. The government already has seized thousands of white-owned commercial farms for redistribution to black Zimbabweans, leaving thousands of acres of once-cultivated land to run fallow.

Mugabe on sanctions, diamonds, foreign companies
 
01:29
(17 Feb 2010) SHOTLIST 1. Mid shot, Zimbabwe''s President Robert Mugabe, speaking to reporters 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: "Don''t mind them. We know their attitude, they don''t want anyone, any country in the developing world to make any meaningful developmental strides. They are against our development. And that attitude is more pronounced even in regard to Zimbabwe, you know that." 3. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: (Q: "And dragging of our diamonds into the whole issue again of sanctions?") "Well, it''s the same thing. But we are trying to play it their own way but we could go outside that KP (Kimberley Process) system and do it otherwise, other systems. We can sell our diamonds our own way anyway." 4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Robert Mugabe, President of Zimbabwe: (Q: "Referring to the indigenisation law, some people are saying it will hurt foreign direct investment given that it will only be taking 51 percent?") "49 percent is a hell lot of equity and it''s only foolish ones who will say so. Wise ones will take it up." 5. Wide shot, Mugabe at exhibitor''s stand 6. Tilt from boots to Mugabe STORYLINE Zimbabwe''s President Robert Mugabe said on Wednesday he does not mind the extension of sanctions by the European Union on him and his close allies. The European Union announced on Tuesday that it was extending sanctions on Mugabe and his allies, citing the lack of progress in implementing a political agreement with former opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC). Mugabe, who was officially opening a tourism investor conference in the nation''s capital Harare, claimed that the EU "don''t want any country in the developing world to make any meaningful developmental strides". Mugabe''s ZANU-PF party were hoping that the EU and other western nations would lift sanctions following the formation of the unity government. Mugabe also suggested that Zimbabwe might sell its diamonds outside the Kimberley Process, an international grouping set up to govern the global diamond industry. The Kimberley Process has been under pressure since last year to take action against Zimbabwe following allegations of human rights abuses at the country''s Marange diamond fields. Mining is managed by Zimbabwe''s Mining Development Corporation under protection of the military. Mugabe was also questioned about Zimbabwe''s new indigenisation law, which makes it mandatory for local indigenous people to hold a 51 percent stake in foreign companies. Mugabe said only "fools" would not accept the new law. Mugabe''s comments came on the anniversary of the first meeting of the unity government''s cabinet, formed of members of Tsvangirai''s Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) and President Robert Mugabe''s ZANU-PF party.

Rhodesia was the de facto successor state to the British colony of Southern Rhodesia, which had been self-governing since achieving responsible government in 1923. A landlocked nation, Rhodesia was bordered by South Africa to the south, Bechuanaland (later Botswana) to the southwest, Zambia to the northwest, and Mozambique (a Portuguese province until 1975) to the east. In the late 19th century, the territory north of the Transvaal was chartered to the British South Africa Company, led by Cecil Rhodes. Rhodes and his Pioneer Column marched north in 1890, acquiring a huge bloc of territory that the Company would rule until the early 1920s. In 1923, the Company's charter was revoked, and Southern Rhodesia attained self-government and established a legislature. Between 1953 and 1963, Southern Rhodesia was joined with Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland in the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. The decolonisation of Africa in the early 1960s alarmed a significant proportion of Rhodesia's white population. In an effort to delay the transition to black majority rule, Rhodesia's predominantly white government issued its own Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) from the United Kingdom on 11 November 1965. (The government of the United Kingdom supported Rhodesia's transition to a multi-racial democracy.) The UDI administration initially sought recognition as an autonomous realm within the Commonwealth of Nations, but reconstituted itself as a republic in 1970. The Rhodesian Bush War, which pitted the government against two African nationalist organisations, ZANU and ZAPU, intensified in the 1970s, prompting Rhodesian premier Ian Smith to concede to multiracial democracy in 1978. However, a provisional government subsequently headed by Smith and his moderate colleague Abel Muzorewa failed in appeasing international critics or halting the bloodshed. By December 1979, Muzorewa had replaced Smith as Prime Minister and secured an agreement with the militant nationalists, allowing Rhodesia to briefly revert to colonial status pending elections under a universal franchise. It finally achieved internationally recognised independence in April 1980 as the Republic of Zimbabwe. Rhodesia's largest cities were its capital, Salisbury, and Bulawayo. The white population, which grew to nearly 300,000, dominated the country's politics and economy, though they never made up more than eight percent of the total population. Rhodesia developed an economy largely dependent on agriculture, manufacturing, and mining. Its largest exports were chrome, tobacco, and steel. International sanctions put increasing pressure on the country as time went on. The Parliament of Rhodesia, which included the lower House of Assembly and later a Senate, was predominantly white, with minority of seats reserved for blacks. After 1970, the country used a semi-presidential system, with a President, Prime Minister, and cabinet.

BOERBOEL: A DOG LOVER'S INTRODUCTION
 
07:08
This is a dog lover's introduction into one of if not my favorite breed. The boerboel aka the South African Mastiff is a highly intelligent dog with keen instincts for guarding and protection work. The Boerboel Breed History The Boerboel dates back to the mid-1600s in South Africa. Its name comes from the Afrikaan word “boer,” which means “farmer.” This word refers to the early white Dutch farmers who settled in South Africa. The farmers used large, Mastiff-like dogs to guard and protect their farms and families. Dutchman Jan van Riebeeck arrived at the Cape Horn of South Africa in 1652. He brought a dog with him to protect his family in the wild, unfamiliar and unforgiving new territory. That popular Dutch dog was called a "Bullenbitjer." These were large, muscular Mastiff-type canines with extremely strong guarding and protective instincts. These dogs undoubtedly were bred with native domestic South African dogs. The Great Trek inland that started in the 1800s, as a result of Dutch and other European colonists protest to tight British rule in southern Africa. Resulted in the Boer dogs being scattered across the region. Those that survived the harsh environment were exceptionally hardy, trustworthy, adaptable and loyal. They lived with people who were isolated from the rest of the world and relied on them for guarding, herding and companionship. These dogs were a primary line of defense against all predators, both wild and human. They also were used to track and hold down wounded game, until the hunters could retrieve it and use it as a source of food. Sometime in the 1930s, Bullmastiffs were brought to South Africa by the De Beers diamond company to guard their mines. These dogs played an important role in the development of the Boerboel. Rhodesian Ridgebacks and their descendants likely contributed to the Boerboel as well.

Land reform in Zimbabwe
 
24:30
Land reform in Zimbabwe officially began in 1979 with the signing of the Lancaster House Agreement, an effort to more equitably distribute land between black subsistence farmers and white Zimbabweans of European ancestry, who had traditionally enjoyed superior political and economic status. The government's land distribution is perhaps the most crucial and most bitterly contested political issue surrounding Zimbabwe. It can be divided into two periods: from 1979 to 2000, where a principle of willing buyer, willing seller was applied with economic help from Great Britain and secondly, beginning in 2000, the fast-track land reform program. Mugabe's targets were intended to alter the ethnic balance of land ownership. This video is targeted to blind users.

Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited "Ngoma ye Kwedu"
 
10:49
Thomas Mapfumo & The Blacks Unlimited led a spectacular celebration of the first ten years of The Sanctuary for Independent Media in concert on April 2, 2016! www.mediasanctuary.org www.thomas-mapfumo.com Thomas Mapfumo has been the musical voice of protest in Zimbabwe and all of southern Africa for nearly half a century. Easily the most famous singer in his native country, Mapfumo lives in exile from the regime of Robert Mugabe, and his music is banned at home. But Mapfumo doesn't sing his protest only against one corrupt dictator. Mapfumo's gruff baritone voice is an instrument as lyrical or as fierce as he wants it to be. It's a voice that can't be doubted. His singing/chanting cries of protest are backed up by music that can only be heard as richly joyful. If these songs are to be sung in the streets of protest, then the singers will be dancing. The source of Mapfumo's music is tribal Africa, as any amount of listening to ethnographic field recordings would show. The complex layers of double and triple rhythm, expressed in melodic patterns based on the sound of the mbira (thumb piano), are ancestral, as is Mapfumo's cascade-of-words delivery. Recent CDs show a steadily growing international influence on Mapfumo, especially the influence of reggae, and more readiness to incorporate the "high life" jazz sounds of African pop music. There is a kind of 'disconnect' between the anguish often expressed in Mapfumo's words and the exuberance of his music, but that disconnect is ours, not his. Mapfumo is a man of joy in a world of sorrow. Thomas Tafirenyika Mukanya Mapfumo was born in Marondera, Zimbabwe in 1945. His early childhood moments, saw him tapping the knack and interest for traditional music and instruments (ngoma, hosho and mbira) from his grandparents who were avid musicians in the village. Unbeknown to him, that early-stage set-up underlined with innocence would describe his future music career and earn him global fame. By the age of ten he lived in Mbare with his parents who worked in the city. At the time, Mbare was a black ghetto township; also a hub of protest movements against the segregationist colonial regime. That anarchic neighborhood exposed young Thomas to some early brushes with police brutality against restless freedom protesters. It was also in Mbare that Mapfumo became hooked to the stereo, finding a favorite pastime as he listened to diverse international music from famous stars of the day. That concentrated limelight would eventually inspire him to plot for a music career at that tender age. Around 1973 Mapfumo joined his first group, the Hallelujah Chicken band in Mhangura, a small mining town. Initially, he had sang in English but quickly spotted a need to express himself in vernacular and please his local fans. That way, he would also spread consciousness and the call for freedom. He had a brief stint with the Hallelujah Chicken band before joining with others to form the Acid Band. Realizing a need for seriously pursuing his own Chimurenga music genre, he then founded the Blacks Unlimited around 1978. By then, Chimurenga music had eventually morphed into a symbol for the struggle against injustice as it assumed a distinct and threatening presence in war-torn Rhodesia. Through that music banner, he continued to taunt the colonial regime, denouncing poverty while advocating for freedom. Despite the colonial system reacting to the music with censure and repression, Mapfumo’s music irresistibly rocked the nation like a Hurricane as it remained unique, melodious, informative and equally gripping. When Zimbabwe became independent in 1980, Mukanya even shared the celebrations stage in Rufaro Stadium with the Jamaican reggae legend Bob Marley, opening more doors to international fame and recording opportunities in London. Despite his dedication to fighting colonial arbitrariness from the stage, Mapfumo even got busier in independent Zimbabwe as he would embark on a new Chimurenga theme. The looming corruption, grinding poverty, and the decaying rule of law blighted a promising Zimbabwe, saddening hopeful masses and inevitably pushing him to compose more lyrics as missiles for protest against his own government. To the surprise of many, the same music censorship characteristics of colonial Rhodesia also visited Mukanya upon his release of the Corruption album in independent Zimbabwe. With more pressing conditions, in 2000, he relocated to the USA and continued with his music. His full captivating biography has finally appeared in a book called "The Story of Thomas Mapfumo" by Banning Eyre, published in July 2015 courtesy of Chimurenga Music Company.

Africa 2010 - The Future of Zimbabwe
 
01:24:29
http://www.weforum.org/ 06.05.2010 This session brings together the three leaders of the Government of National Unity at a critical moment in Zimbabwes history. With progress being made in reconciling historic differences, Zimbabwe's economy has shown signs of recovery largely driven by the introduction of dollarization in January 2009, which helped to stabilize inflation and increase investment. (However, concerns remain as to the cohesion of the current government. The recent indigenization bill passed in parliament has caused concern for both international and local businesses.) What is the future of Zimbabwe under the current Government of National Unity, and how are investors and businesses adjusting their operational strategies to recent developments? Robert G.

Governments Steal From the World's people (fraud by G20 leaders &  the Chipping Norton Cabal)
 
55:47
This video by George Lees and Gordon Bowden is an hour long. the financial and economic crimes revealed are enormous and have the worlds' people in austerity and many 9in the developing world) in shallow graves. When genocides occur only local activists are accused of war crimes. We talk about the Bush Dynasty and Blair arming Iraq and private militias in Africa, the middle east and the Oman nukes made by Bredenkamp in South Africa and in Mugabe's/Smith's Rhodesia. We talk about sporting figureheads like Phil edmonds the International cricketer and the HALO trust's scams and the land mine trading that was one of the contributory factors in Princess Dianna's shameful persecution and death. Most importantly we talk about the trillion dollar financial frauds often dealing in virtual "non-existant products" in mining /oil /gas and how the illicit funds are raised in the Alternative investment Markets (notably the AIM in London, Torronto, Germany and China but all countries have these scams often before the transitional government imposed by the millitias is in place). Together they generate/control all rights to issue currency and stocks/shares only to their elite friends and to launder the proceeds into havens in Switzerland delaware Florida, Cuba, Mexico or offshore. We talk about corrupt companies like Lonmin (subsiduary of Lonrho) who kill their staff in the payround negotiations. We talk about the history of Tiny Rowlands, the Isle of Man NAZI internment camps and his release into the RSA/Rhodesia in 1942 to create a mining empire in Gold Diamands then to come back to Britain to be the unacceptable face of capitalism. We forgot to mention it but Lonrho's current chairman is Prince Charles' personal financial advisor. Al Fayed, Lord Patten and many mor infamous characters have served on the board and we discuss their boiler rooms in Finchley, Arlington Street (behind the Ritz) Bristol, Fetter Lane. The scams of false news from the BBC (which Patten runs) is shared by Ingenious Films LLP....with David/Posh Beckham, Steven Gerrard, the Neville brothers, Gary Linker and leading bankers like sir John Craven on the board (Deutsche Bank, JP Motgan-grenfell). They liase with the PM's friends in the chipping Norton set, illicit charitable scams (red nose day, WWF, British Legion, The Poppy fund and fail to read out the names of the war dead even in their local parishes. The Duke of westminster (Britains richest man) is a director at the Br Legion where they run a £7million insurance hedge fund to protect the profiteers from litigation by the impoverished masses. We profile the virtual oil and gas scams, erosion of our industrial productivity, public sector funding and jobs and reveal how the private security firms like G4S are now headed up by NATO commanders in chief (Lord Guthrie: a Blair life peer since 2001 and an NM Rothschild bank director like former chancellor Norman Lamont....who crashed our economy and our real estate pubbles before these teams got really violent and rich in the noughties! We talk about our relentless campaign to inform the people of the theft from the world's people and the endless brutalisation of innocent countries. WE finish by revealing that politicians like Alex Salmond SNP and Nigel farage UKIP (who are picked by the corrupted teams) have been informed in hundreds of Emails over 2-3 years of exactly who the fraudsters are and how G8 leaders run the world like the MAFIA (with NATO and the UN entirely at their disposal as profiteers). We profile the PONZI schemes in Westminster and roles for Dave Prentis on the court of the bank of England. We tell the audience about the scams against british students and the jobless youngsters and how this leads to a life in poverty and joblessness. All households are now feeling the pinch as they de-commission, armies, public police forces and have all institutions/countries on the globe in a massive pool of toxic debt that means all infrastructure projects, olympic events, world cups cost more than all of the previous events added together (as is the case with sovereign debt in every nation across the globe). Lastly we reveal how the world sees the ownership of other people asets as a well understood joke notably with oil and gas (where there is a real product) and how this is paid for by the lives and land of the locals. If you do not understand this or the characaters/ names involved then please loook them up in the index on this web site.....as we reveal in the summary the information is now going viral and is being shared with activists and anti-treason researchers GLOBALLY and the pin stripe brigade and the PM's friends in Chipping Norton, the SKY News Empire and the G8-G20 summits are in a really dangerous position as the masses who die for this realise they fund it all from their sacrifice and loyalty to tyrants and thieves.

History of Diamonds: Blood & Diamonds Pt. 1
 
13:08
Diamonds are forever, right? Well, the truth is that diamonds have not always been the symbols of love and commitment we see them as today. In fact, it's only been in the past 150 years or so that diamonds have been readily available to the public. Today's video will examine how and why diamonds rose to prominence in our lives. This video discusses the role of diamonds in ancient times, and their recent explosion thanks to the discovery of the Kimberley Mines in South Africa in 1866, and Cecil Rhodes' creation of the DeBeers diamond corporation. This is somewhat different topic for the channel, but I think it's an important one. I think that - much like eating animals - earth mined diamonds are an archaic obsession that no longer serves us. This is a three-part series, I'll be talking about the history of diamonds, the advertising campaign that brought diamonds to the prominent place they now hold in our culture, and in the final episode, I'll talk about more ethical alternatives. What I really hope comes across throughout these videos is the fact that the "tradition" of diamonds as a symbol of love, luxury and commitment is actually a recently created, mass marketed fiction. For more on the historical background of the diamond industry, check out this article from The Atlantic: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/1982/02/have-you-ever-tried-to-sell-a-diamond/304575/ It's an oldie, but a goodie! The De Beers corporation only controls about 40% of the diamond market today, but it doesn't much matter. The various diamond producing nations (and corporations) of the world, have realized that it's much better to cooperate than to compete in this industry. The result has been relatively stable supply and prices. Thanks for watching!

Rhodesia
 
01:03:50
Rhodesia (/roʊˈdiːʒə/, rə-DEE-zhə), officially the Republic of Rhodesia from 1970 to 1979, was an unrecognised state located in southern Africa during the Cold War. From 1965 to 1979, it comprised the region now known as Zimbabwe. The country, with its capital in Salisbury, was considered a de facto successor state to the former British colony of Southern Rhodesia (which had achieved responsible government in 1923). During an effort to delay an immediate transition to black majority rule, Rhodesia's predominantly white government issued its own Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) from the United Kingdom on 11 November 1965. The UDI administration initially sought recognition as an autonomous realm within the Commonwealth of Nations, but reconstituted itself as a republic in 1970. This video is targeted to blind users.

02:43:59
This 3x LP record set from 1967 documents the activities of a secret society known as The Illuminati, and their New World Order. Mr. Fagan describes with documentary evidence how the ILLUMINATI became the instrument of the House of Rothschild to achieve a "One World Government".

Myron Fagan is considered to be the archetype for the PCT (Paranoid Conspiracy Theorist) This Recording is one of the most interesting and yet horrifying, factual stories of some of the most sensational plots in the history of the world. The findings by Mr. Fagan were split into 6 parts, between these 3 records and are presented to you here, in full. Each record has some descriptive notes on the back of each jacket such as... *Eliminate the Illuminati...see that this message is heard!!! * Play this for the unaware, uninformed and well meaning people who desire to hear the truth. Don't waste your time on the hard core socialists who have already repudiated principle. * Buy Air-time with your club or organization! Get free time! No station is too small! * Use at coffees - Luncheons - meetings - everywhere and often.

Lafayette Ronald Hubbard , better known as L. Ron Hubbard and often referred to by his initials, LRH, was an American author and the founder of the Church of Scientology. After establishing a career as a writer, becoming best known for his science fiction and fantasy stories, he developed a system called Dianetics which was first expounded in book form in May 1950. He subsequently developed his ideas into a wide-ranging set of doctrines and practices as part of a new religious movement that he called Scientology. His writings became the guiding texts for the Church of Scientology and a number of affiliated organizations that address such diverse topics as business administration, literacy and drug rehabilitation. The Church's dissemination of these materials led to Hubbard being listed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the most translated and published author in the world. The Guinness World Record for the most audio books published for one author is also held by Hubbard.

Apartheid in South Africa Laws, History: Documentary Film - Raw Footage (1957)
 
33:57
Apartheid (lit. "aparthood") (pronounced [uh-pahrt-heyt, [uh-pahr-hahyt]) is an Afrikaans word for a system of racial segregation enforced through legislation by the National Party governments, who were the ruling party from 1948 to 1994, of South Africa, under which the rights of the majority black inhabitants of South Africa were curtailed and white supremacy and Afrikaner minority rule was maintained. Apartheid was developed after World War II by the Afrikaner-dominated National Party and Broederbond organizations and was practiced also in South West Africa, which was administered by South Africa under a League of Nations mandate (revoked in 1966 via United Nations Resolution 2145), until it gained independence as Namibia in 1990. Racial segregation in South Africa began in colonial times under Dutch[4] and British rule. However, apartheid as an official policy was introduced following the general election of 1948. New legislation classified inhabitants into four racial groups ("native", "white", "coloured", and "Asian"),[5] and residential areas were segregated, sometimes by means of forced removals. Non-white political representation was completely abolished in 1970, and starting in that year black people were deprived of their citizenship, legally becoming citizens of one of ten tribally based self-governing homelands called bantustans, four of which became nominally independent states. The government segregated education, medical care, beaches, and other public services, and provided black people with services inferior to those of white people.[6] Apartheid sparked significant internal resistance and violence as well as a long arms and trade embargo against South Africa.[7] Since the 1950s, a series of popular uprisings and protests were met with the banning of opposition and imprisoning of anti-apartheid leaders. As unrest spread and became more effective and militarized, state organisations responded with repression and violence. Reforms to apartheid in the 1980s failed to quell the mounting opposition, and in 1990 President Frederik Willem de Klerk began negotiations to end apartheid,[8] culminating in multi-racial democratic elections in 1994, which were won by the African National Congress under Nelson Mandela. The vestiges of apartheid still shape South African politics and society. Although the official abolishment of Apartheid occurred in 1990 with repeal of the last of the remaining Apartheid laws, the end of Apartheid is widely regarded as arising from the 1994 democratic general elections being held. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apartheid_in_South_Africa

Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article).

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= Northern Rhodesia was a protectorate in south central Africa, formed in 1911 by amalgamating the two earlier protectorates of Barotziland-North-Western Rhodesia and North-Eastern Rhodesia. It was initially administered, as were the two earlier protectorates, by the British South Africa Company (BSAC), a chartered company on behalf of the British Government. From 1924 it was administered by the British Government as a protectorate under similar conditions to other British-administered protectorates, and the special provisions required when it was administered by BSAC were terminated. Although under the BSAC charter it had features of a charter colony, the BSAC's treaties with local rulers and British legislation gave it the status of a protectorate. The territory attracted a relatively small number of European settlers, but from the time these first secured political representation, they agitated for white minority rule, either as a separate entity or associated with Southern Rhodesia and possibly Nyasaland. The mineral wealth of Northern Rhodesia made full amalgamation attractive to Southern Rhodesian politicians, but the British Government preferred a looser association to include Nyasaland. This was intended to protect Africans in Northern Rhodesia and Nyasaland from discriminatory Southern Rhodesian laws. The Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland formed in 1953 was intensely unpopular among the vast African majority and its formation hastened calls for majority rule. As a result of this pressure, the country became independent in 1964 as Zambia.The geographical, as opposed to political, term "Rhodesia" referred to a region generally comprising the areas that are today Zambia and Zimbabwe. From 1964, it only referred to the former Southern Rhodesia.

German East Africa
 
11:03
German East Africa (German: Deutsch-Ostafrika) was a German colony in the African Great Lakes region, which included what are now Burundi, Rwanda, and the mainland part of present Tanzania (formerly known as Tanganyika). Its area was 994,996 km2 (384,170 sq mi), nearly three times the area of present-day Germany. The colony was organized when the German military was called upon to put down a revolt against the activities of a colonial company during the late 1880s. It ended with Imperial Germany's defeat in World War I. Afterwards, the territory was divided between Britain and Belgium and reorganized as a mandate of the League of Nations.

The Republic of Zambia /ˈzæmbiə/ is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, neighboring the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north, Tanzania to the north-east, Malawi to the east, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana and Namibia to the south, and Angola to the west. The capital city is Lusaka, in the south-central part of the country. The population is concentrated mainly around Lusaka in the south and the Copperbelt Province to the northwest. Originally inhabited by Khoisan peoples, the region was colonised during the Bantu expansion of the thirteenth century. After visits by European explorers in the eighteenth century, Zambia became the British protectorate of Northern Rhodesia towards the end of the nineteenth century. For most of the colonial period, the country was governed by an administration appointed from London with the advice of the British South Africa Company. This video is targeted to blind users.

It was the predecessor state of what is now Zimbabwe. The colony was established in 1923, having earlier been administered by the British South Africa Company. In 1953, it was merged into the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, which lasted until 1963. Southern Rhodesia then remained a de jure British colony until 1980. However, the white-minority government issued a Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) in 1965 and established Rhodesia, an unrecognised state. In 1979, it reconstituted itself under indigenous African rule as Zimbabwe Rhodesia, which also failed to win overseas recognition. After a period of interim British control following the Lancaster House Agreement in December 1979, the country achieved internationally recognised independence as Zimbabwe in April 1980.

SECOND BOER WAR - WikiVidi Documentary
 
02:09:10
The Second Boer War was fought between the British Empire and two Boer states, the South African Republic and the Orange Free State, over the Empire's influence in South Africa. It is also known variously as the Boer War, Anglo-Boer War, South African War or Anglo-Boer South African War. Initial Boer attacks were successful, and though British reinforcements later reversed these, the war continued for years with Boer guerrilla warfare, until harsh British counter-measures brought them to terms. The war started with Britain overconfident and under-prepared. The Boers were very well armed and struck first, besieging Ladysmith, Kimberley, and Mafeking in early 1900, and winning important battles at Colenso, Magersfontein and Stormberg. Staggered, Britain brought in large numbers of soldiers and fought back. General Redvers Buller was replaced by Lord Roberts and Lord Kitchener. They relieved the three besieged cities, and invaded the two Boer republics in late 1900.

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= Botswana ( ( listen)), officially the Republic of Botswana (Tswana: Lefatshe la Botswana), is a landlocked country located in Southern Africa. Formerly the British protectorate of Bechuanaland, Botswana adopted its new name after becoming independent within the Commonwealth on 30 September 1966. Since then, it has maintained a strong tradition of stable representative democracy, with a consistent record of uninterrupted democratic elections and the best perceived corruption ranking in Africa since at least 1998.Botswana is topographically flat, with up to 70 percent of its territory being the Kalahari Desert. It is bordered by South Africa to the south and southeast, Namibia to the west and north, and Zimbabwe to the northeast. Its border with Zambia to the north near Kazungula is poorly defined but is, at most, a few hundred metres long.A mid-sized country of just over 2 million people, Botswana is one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world. Around 10 percent of the population lives in the capital and largest city, Gaborone. Formerly one of the poorest countries in the world—with a GDP per capita of about US$70 per year in the late 1960s—Botswana has since transformed itself into one of the world's fastest-growing economies. The economy is dominated by mining, cattle, and tourism. Botswana boasts a GDP (purchasing power parity) per capita of about $18,825 per year as of 2015, which is one of the highest in Africa. Its high gross national income (by some estimates the fourth-largest in Africa) gives the country a relatively high standard of living and the highest Human Development Index of continental Sub-Saharan Africa.Botswana is a member of the African Union, the Southern African Development Community, the Commonwealth of Nations, and the United Nations. The country has been among the hardest hit by the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Despite the success in programmes to make treatments available to those infected, and to educate the populace in general about how to stop the spread of HIV/AIDS, the number of people with AIDS rose from 290,000 in 2005 to 320,000 in 2013. As of 2014, Botswana has the third-highest prevalence rate for HIV/AIDS, with roughly 20% of the adult population being infected.
