A poem by Credo Mutwa

Credo Mutwa
Credo Mutwa

The Zulu sangoma (traditional healer), Credo Mutwa, has written a poem to express his thoughts on what he sees as the true nature of Barack Obama and the agenda for Africa and the world that he represents.

An actor walks upon the floodlit stage of life
wearing a mask of an angel beneath a demon's gown. Pretence smiles upon the crowded hall of life
holding out hope as bright as it is false. Son of a woman in whose veins flows the blood
of ancient Ireland and dark Africa's plains. You are Obama, nick-named the standing king
You are Barack, oh, son born to deceive The suffering hoards of Africa look up to you, See a black saviour where nought but a Judas strides. An entrapper of nations, bringer of dismal war
Behind the robes and the nylon wings of hope Oh, may those who look upon you, see you as you are.
May those who hope in you behold you as you be
A prince deceitful to bring down Africa's shrines
A siren who leads Africa's ships onto rocks of obliteration. Your rule my lord will not be one of peace Your reign my king will not be one of smiles Even as we speak in caves both dark and dank
Enraged fanatics plot your dark demise
They will put around your head a bloodwet martyr's crown. Oh black Kennedy following the one before May God forgive thee and thy fiery spouse
As you walk in silence from the stage of life Barack Obama, blessed son, Oh standing king.

Hi Paul, thanks for visiting my blog. Yes it is pathetic how the world perceives Barack Obama as this High Almighty gift from God, when in actual fact he’s just a another puppet on a string selling the idea of change and (false) hope to masses of ignorant fools.

I first became aware of Credo Mutwa as my intuition led me to David Icke. Since childhood I suffered from what I called terrible nightmares. I now realize that they were nightmares because the graphic visions I saw both confusd and scared me. In the shaman I've come to overstand that my visions serve to guide me. I find it more difficult to relate to others... and it is through the Shaman's knowledge that I find companionship. Is it a coincidence that I started with the Dogon tribe, who I knew nothing about until one day a book called my name from the shelf.

ubaba credo onece said by 2012 most of the companies are going to retrench a hole lot of people at work, because of economic crises, and its only a predication, so will be waiting to see if it will turn into reality or what by 2012.

Dear Friends of Credo Mutwa,

I saw him last weekend, and he was very deprtessed because, in his words: "I tried to tell a message of love and peace, but it was useless. Nobody listened."

Father Mutwa's birthday is on 21 July, and I would want to send him some proof that his message has been heard by many people.

Please send me your wishes for his birthday, as well as your appreciation for what he has done, I will find a way to get it to him.

I met Credo Mutwa as a child, when he used to visit my uncle in Newcastle. I remember the awe and respect he was shown, back in the mid 70's (apartheid days). I sought him out as an adult, and met him in a small flat near Johannesburg Wanderers club, and spent a good evening chatting to him. He sat in his wrapped blanket, a very large man. Sadly, the photo of his shows that he has lost a lot of weight, something Credo would not willingly do. Pity his voice is not respected amongst the Zulu people, as they would not follow zooma and his corrupt cabinet if they did.

Credo Mutwa the poet, sculptor, writer, painter, Zulu Shaman, keeper of ancient knowledge, now 94 years of age, lives near Kuruman in the Northern Province of South Africa. Though old and frail now, his name resonates with many; knowledge seekers, African historians, writers, researchers, people beyond the borders on the country.

Credo and his wife Virginia have been ripped off for decades by 'fund-raisers', publishers, reporters, etc, promising them funds that have never arrived. Today he lives off a small garden grown by his wife, and some donor money from a sculptor in Holland.

Still his story of the mysteries of the world remains consistent and compelling -

Operation Vula, its Secret Safari, and Zuma’s band of comrades - Dec. 2013
During 1986 the ANC launched an underground operation called Operation Vula. A lesser-known fact is that it continued to operate after Nelson Mandela's release in February 1990, and for three years after his speech in August 1990 when he reiterated the total commitment of the ANC, Umkhonto we Sizwe and the SACP to the Groote Schuur Minute.

This posting includes a few photographs taken on Heritage Day 2013. The posting introduces an unusual but beautiful new structure called QUO VADIS? (with the question mark) which I’m sure many readers have never heard of.

The Yellow-Bucket Marula Tree: A Mystery Solved! - Oct. 2013
I came across a rather strange phenomenon one day while travelling along the R561 route between Tolwe and Baltimore in the Limpopo province of South Africa. A small yellow bucket was attached high-up in a branch of a Marula tree, hence the name of this posting. It’s a real funny story which I’m sure most readers will enjoy - as much as I enjoyed compiling the article  - (with illustrations).

Pretoria’s Monument for Victims of Terrorism - July 2013
Many people (including myself) had almost forgotten about a noteworthy monument in Pretoria that stood at the entrance of the old Munitoria building on the corner of Van der Walt and Vermeulen Streets (now renamed Lilian Ngoyi and Madiba Streets). When the Munitoria building was demolished on 7 July 2013 nobody could tell me whether the monument was still standing or not, so I decided to go look for myself.

Remembering The Battle of Delville Wood - July 2013
14 July marks a day when the South African 1st Infantry Brigade got engaged in the 1916 (WW1) Battle of the Somme, in France. The battle was one of the largest of World War I, in which more than a million men were wounded or killed, making it one of humanity's bloodiest battles. One specific encounter during this battle, known as The Battle of Delville Wood, is of particular importance to South Africa. The posting includes a comprehensive article (with pictures) compiled and written by Petros Kondos.
