From riches to rags for whites
2010/03/29


SITTING in a deck chair at a white South African squatter camp, Ann le Roux, 60, holds a yellowing photo of her daughter’s wedding day. Taken not long after Nelson Mandela became the country’s first black president in 1994, it shows Le Roux standing with her husband and their daughter outside their home in Melville, an upmarket Johannesburg neighbourhood.

Sixteen years later, she lives in a caravan and a tent shared with seven other people, including her daughter and four grandchildren, at a squatter camp for poor white South Africans.

She is one of a growing number of whites living below the poverty line in South Africa who blame affirmative action and the ANC-led elected government for their plight.

Le Roux had to sell her house after her husband died and she lost her job as a secretary at the city planning council – where she had worked for 26 years – after she had taken time off work to recover from the loss of her husband.

“They wouldn’t take me back because of the political situation,” she says, looking down at the fading photo.

“Our colour here is not the right colour now in South Africa,” Le Roux says, echoing the complaint of many impoverished whites.

While most white South Africans still enjoy lives of privilege and relative wealth, the number of poor whites has risen steadily over the past 15 years. White unemployment nearly doubled between 1995 and 2005, according to the Institute for Security Studies.

Seeking to reverse decades of racial inequality, the ANC government introduced affirmative action to promote employment for blacks and aim to give black South Africans a bigger slice of the economy.

When the global financial crisis was added to the shift in racial hiring practices many poor white South Africans fell on hard times.

At least 450000 white South Africans, 10% of the total white population, live below the poverty line and 100000 are struggling just to survive, according to civil organisations and the largely white trade union Solidarity. South Africa’s population is about 50 million.

Many poor whites have ended up in places like Coronation Park in Krugersdorp, west of Johannesburg, a leafy former caravan site beside a water reservoir and a public picnic park frequented by middle-class families at weekends.

Ringed by yellow- brown hills of earth dug up by generations of gold miners, the park was used by the British as a concentration camp for Afrikaners during the Anglo-Boer war at the start of the 20th century.

Now it is home to about 400 white squatters living in cramped tents and caravans and sharing a single ablution block. Cats and dogs roam noisily through the camp, dodging heaps of rubbish, piles of scrap metal and abandoned car parts.

Water is heated and food cooked on open camp fires. The local council cut electricity to the camp after failing to evict the white squatters.

The council wanted to develop the area into a wide-screen viewing area for soccer matches ahead of the Fifa World Cup in June and July.

Some residents, including three black South Africans, have lived there for years. Others arrived in recent weeks.

“If you’re out of work and you haven’t got money, where must you go to? No one wants to help you – this is the only place to go to,” says Dennis Boshoff, 38.

When President Jacob Zuma visited a white squatter camp near Pretoria last year – ahead of his election – he said he was “shocked and surprised”.

“The vast number in black poverty does not mean we must ignore white poverty, which is becoming an embarrassment to talk about,” Zuma said at the time.

White poverty in South Africa is a politically sensitive subject that gets little attention, but it is not new.

Under apartheid, introduced in 1948, whites enjoyed vast protection and sheltered employment. The weakest and least educated whites were protected by the civil service and state-owned industries operating as job-creation schemes, guaranteeing even the poorest whites a home and livelihood.

But with that economic safety net now gone, South Africa’s unskilled whites find themselves on the wrong side of history, gaining little sympathy from those who perceive them as having profited unfairly during the brutal apartheid years.

Trade union Solidarity says there are about 430000 whites who live in squatter camps. Around Pretoria alone there are 80 squatter settlements. There are more than 2000 much larger black squatter camps across South Africa.

Formerly comfortable Afrikaners recently forced to live on the fringes of society see themselves as victims of “reverse apartheid” that they say puts them at an even greater disadvantage than the millions of poor black South Africans.

“Blacks get more than whites at the moment. They’re being pulled forward against us. That’s why all of us are here. It’s very unfair because they told us it was going to be equal, but it’s not equal,” said Boshoff.

This feeling of victimisation and abandonment by the state has forged at the camp a collective sense of fatalism, isolation and firm reliance on their Calvinist religion. Each of the camp’s ramshackle huts and tents is adorned with religious paraphernalia and an Afrikaans language bible.

Many poor white communities also struggle with alcoholism, violence and abuse, but at Coronation Park social problems have declined.

“We kicked a lot of the worst ones out and the fighting and violence has gone down,” said Hugo Van Niekerk, who has managed the camp over the past few years.

Van Niekerk, who solicits donations and helps community members find odd jobs, successfully fought an eviction order last year from the local municipality but he expects little help from the council or government on housing.

“We won’t get houses from this government. If we were black maybe yes, but we are white.”

Amptenare sê dis rassisties om wit armes te help’
2010-03-30


Net 160 voedselkoepons is van 2008 aan ’n groep van 600 000 wit armes uitgedeel.
Die uitdeel van sulke koepons aan die inwoners van Bethlehem, ’n arm, informele wit nedersetting in Andeon, in die noorde van Pretoria, is gestaak ’n week nadat mnr. Jacob Zuma dit op 18 April 2008 as ANC-leier op uitnodiging van Solidariteit besoek het.

“Staatsamptenare het gesê dit is rassisties om honger wit mense te help,” skryf dr. Danie Langner, uitvoerende direkteur van Solidariteit Helpende Hand, in ’n brief aan Zuma.

Dié brief gaan môre as deel van ’n verslag oor die “gesigte van Afrikanerarmoede” aan Zuma oorhandig word tydens sy opvolgbesoek aan Bethlehem.

Luidens die verslag is die uitdeel van voedselkoepons aan arm wit mense gestaak ondanks die bevindings van ’n onafhanklike ondersoek deur die destydse Umsobomvu Youth Fund, tans die National Youth Development Agency (NYDA).

Daarvolgens is bevind die regering se definisie van voorheen benadeelde mense moet uitgebrei word om die wit jeug tussen 18 en 35 jaar met ’n inkomste van R500 tot R3 000 per maand in te sluit.

Volgens die ondersoek is die arm wit jeug beslis een van die mees gemarginaliseerde groepe in Suid-Afrika.

Langner skryf vir Zuma hy glo die president sal geskok wees om te hoor dat me. Heila Rothmann, ’n siek en sterwende kankerlyer, etlike dae lank van 06:00 tot 17:00 in ’n ry moes staan net om op 6 Maart te hoor haar vyfde aansoek vir ’n ongeskiktheidstoelae is van die hand gewys.

Rothmann het haar stryd teen kanker ’n week later verloor.

Luidens die verslag toon navorsing wat Helpende Hand gedoen het dat 63% van die inwoners in die 77 wit informele nedersettings in Pretoria 60 jaar en ouer is.

Boonop ondersoek die Centurion-raad vir bejaardes tans sowat 2 100 armoedesake terwyl sowat 1 000 gevalle van bejaardeverwaarlosing per maand by die Pretoriase Bejaardesorg aangemeld word.

Langner het gesê hul navorsing dui daarop dat daar slegs een maatskaplike werker vir elke 4 000 Suid-Afrikaners is.

Uit die NYDA se verslag blyk dit is “ongelooflik moeilik” vir wit gemeenskappe om toegang tot ongeskiktheidstoelaes te kry.

“Die meeste arm swart gemeenskappe het toegang tot satellietkantore van die departement van maatskaplike ontwikkeling wat aansoeke vir toelaes verwerk.

’n Soortgelyke diens is nie vir behoeftige wit gemeenskappe beskikbaar nie,” het Langner gesê.

PosOnderwerp: MEER EN MEER BLANKES VERARM IN DIE NUWE AZANIESE ROTNES   Wed Aug 11, 2010 8:56 pm

Al hoe meer arm wittes

Ry van Danville in Gauteng se Tshwane-distrik af deur die Daspoort-tonnel na Booysens, Pretoria-Tuine en Daspoort.

Hier is die erwe redelik groot, maar kyk anderkant die heinings en jy sien dalk die Wendyhuisies, krotte, woonwaens en selfs tente ingeprop agter die hoofhuis.

En dis maar net enkele voorbeelde van hoe die gesig van armoede in Suid-Afrika verander het. Armoede raak weliswaar alle Suid-Afrikaners, maar alle armes is nie meer swart nie en alle rykes nie meer wit nie.

Trouens, ’n nuwe armblankevraagstuk, met krotbuurte soos dié van ná die Anglo-Boereoorlog en die Groot Depressie toe mense van die platteland en plase na die stede gestroom het, is aan die ontwikkel.

Wit bedelaars op straat of by verkeersligte is lankal nie meer ’n vreemde gesig nie en volgens die jongste amptelike syfers van Statistieke Suid-Afrika is daar tans 990 000 werklose wit mense. Hiervan is * 380 000 mans en 610 000 vroue.

Sowat 7 000 wit gesinne is onder die honderdduisende Suid-Afrikaners wat in ’n plakkershut, informele struktuur, tent of woonwa woon. Nog 11 000 tot 12 000 wit gesinne deel kamers en woonruimte. Drie jaar gelede het prof. Lawrence Schlemmer al daarop gewys dat 430 000 van die 4,5 miljoen wit mense in die land te arm is om in die histories wit gebiede te woon.

Volgens dr. Dawie Theron, uitvoerende sekretaris van Solidariteit se Helpende Hand-fonds, neem die behuisingsituasie nou kritieke afmetings aan. “En die misbruik van spesifiek die Afrikaanssprekende wit mense deur mede-Afrikaners stuit ’n mens teen die bors.”...

Gaan kyk mooi die verarming van blankes in die land staan tans teen so bietjie meer as 20%. Snaaks genoeg die eenigste popilasie group wat verryk het is die Bantoes met n gemidelde 27%. Hierdie syfers was so tyd trug deur SA stats bekend gemaak.

Selfs die kleurlinge en indiers was ook op die lyd van verarming. Maar wie kla die meeste.

Nu as ons kyk van 4.5 mil blankes stem dit min of meer ooreen met die getalle hierbo maar wat is die 27% van swartes as mens kyk dat hulle soplus minus 40mil is in die land dis bietjie meer as 11mil wat verryk het uit armoede na middel klas en na rykes.

So wie wonder nog oor die regverdigheid van hierdie wonderlike land. Dat blankes weier om wakker te skrik is maar net die punt van die ysberg. Hulle besef om wakker te skrik los net een pad oor en dis waarvoor hulle meer bang is as enige iets anders.
