Botha’s Speech -1985

THE FOLLOWING is a speech made by former South African President P.W. Botha to his Cabinet. This reprint was written by David G. Mailu for the Sunday Times, a South African newspaper, dated August 18, 1985.

“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 Nigge*rs in the States? Were they Afrikaners who started the slave trade? Where is the Black man appreciated? England discriminates against its Black and their “Sus” law is out to discipline the Blacks. Canada, France, Russia, and Japan all play their discrimination too. Why in 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 do not necessarily make them sensible human beings. 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. For diplomatic relations, we all know what language should be used and where. 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 diamonds? Who trades with us? Who is helping us develop other 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, 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 against 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? therefore that 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 Kaff*ir! 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, for example and should be fully utilized. The food supply channel should be used. We have developed excellent slow killing poisons and fertility destroyers. Our only fear is in case such stuff came in! ! to their hands as they are bound to start using it 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 befriend.

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 Botha. ”

    i read in the sunday world a comparison between Botha and Bob Mugabe. let me put it on my blog. this guys really deserved to die. he was a mother of all racism. how can someone have that much hate?

  • 5. Patrick Gathara  |  November 7, 2006 at 7:01 am

    And here is a creature that lacks foresight… The average Black does not plan his life beyond a year.


    Recent African history would tend to bear out these statements much to our shame. Instead of expressing outrage and disgust, we should be proving by our actions that we are worthy of respect. We cannot long continue to be freeloaders on the bandwagon of human dignity and egalitarianism. It is about time our societies started bringing something other than the beggar’s bowl to the table.

    • 6. Caz  |  July 7, 2009 at 11:49 am

      I cannot believe that some of u r even debating what this man is,who in the world does he think he is,it does not matter what our govt(black govt)is doin whether wrong or right he failed to do anythn right.there is no truth in what the man has said.God b with him and those who think like him!i guess it goes to show,the blacks r Gods people,we will forever remain in suffering…

  • 7. houstonmacbro  |  November 7, 2006 at 12:52 pm

    one of the above bloggers mentions that the speech is not real and points us to a link on the newspaper as proof.

    i wonder if anyone has the archive transcripts for that day?

  • 8. 69/\/\  |  November 7, 2006 at 6:16 pm

    Genuine or not, I also got stuck at the statements Patrick Gathara has highlighted above. How can we trash such arguments given our track record? Simple answer is, we can’t.

  • 9. Kenyan Analyst  |  November 8, 2006 at 7:25 pm

    Hi all – Thanks for passing by & reading. Genuine or not, I’ll keep it on my blog for academics. Gathara, nice takes there….

  • 10. Teh Jeev4  |  November 15, 2006 at 6:18 pm

    HAHAH, this speech is so fake its laughable. I see A LOT of black south african sites put it on their websites for propoganda. So ya Botha was right, they lack foresight.

    Botha is my hero!

  • 11. archie  |  November 17, 2006 at 10:14 am

    what ever goes around comes around ,for he felt superior and intellegend,where is he now.if it was so true he woulnt be six feet under by now ,why they are crying loud about their superiority its because instead the issue is another way round the blackman is real ,this black colour is a sign of originality,hence we are soul reach and unederstand is a gradual cascade of eras hence we should not speed up ‘end-of-days,for life is enjoyable creation that u need to take time with.the black colour shows thousand kisses by the african son.u can make white out of all colours excluding black and black is always found on its own.

  • 12. Debo  |  November 21, 2006 at 9:29 pm

    Botha was a brave devil to have said that others like him are in Paris club that prefer to act it rather than say it.Blacks. it is time to wake up. This life is survival of the fittest.

  • 13. Jangeni  |  November 23, 2006 at 1:38 am

    I’am going to comment to the speech of Botha that he made in 1985 ” 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? . According to my own experiance of blacks ,My point of view is Botha is correct according ,for example they is a conflict /diagreement between the govenment of SA .So what botha is saying is blacks cannot rule themselves . first example is the slow progression of black gorvenment in local municipality to deliver infrastructre by this word I’m sapporting Botha when he is saying Black can not rule themselves. If you khow history of Zulu kingdom when they kill shaka Zulu .he said “angeke nilibuse liyobuswa izinkonjane izinyoni zezulu

  • 14. JB  |  December 1, 2006 at 10:53 am

    I have to agree with Botha when he says he is honest. What he says is what every white man believes. The words used in this speech can be used by any white person in private. Those who pretend to respect us do so out of political correctness.

    Lets do things right to disabuse whites of their notions of us. And as we fight racial prejudice lets also fight tribal prejudice which could be worse and more inimical to us.

    And “archie” (above), you appear to be helping whites to think we are irrational. Of course every one will die, and Botha had a very long life!

  • 15. Q.Langeni  |  December 12, 2006 at 1:34 am

    If this speech is not true, then someone please let us know where it comes from. Regardless, this is precisely what they think of us, the world over. The energy you build up by the anger you feel while reading this, should be harnessed to create a change in our societies such that we don’t meet these stereotypes.

  • 16. xmanga  |  December 15, 2006 at 3:53 am

    From the comments about bothas alleged speech, it amazes me to note just how many kenyans have colonized minds. Decolonize! and start by reading ( Surely!!
    Despite our problems, i believe we are doing the best we can.
    How dare anyone demean the handiwork of God? If Africa/blacks remain poor, hungry and all the other ills that affect us, I’m still God’s creation and I was put here for a purpose!! I wont run away to go wash dishes for the whiteman just to be ‘in that country’.
    change your attitudes, it is a pity that some cannot see they have colonized minds.

    Whether there are clinics where it is possible to receive free-of-charge health services, whether there are programs on transplantation of bodies for poor? WBR LeoP

  • 18. ngaka  |  June 18, 2007 at 7:18 pm

    sorry to burst your bubble – but this is an urban legend – there never existed such a speech. If you do not believe me – go ask the Sunday Times in South Africa. You are busy spreading HATE SPEECH.

    Well on these days i can see that botha was right by saying By now every one of us has seen it practically that the Blacks cannot rule themselves. If Botha was still alive would see that he was right so plz Guys to fight against this lets love each other an apply the Say “person is a person by other”

  • 23. Sibusiso  |  September 1, 2008 at 10:21 am

    how can we blacks find it in our hearts to forgive a human being who filled our hearts with such hatred,i only hope God deals with such people accodingly.I just cant stand this…………..

    Botha’s speech is full of greedy of leadership and wealth. To be black is not a sin but proves originality and uniqueness. Many problems happening in africa now were caused by the europeans, botha should go and read again. Peace and love to the black race wherever you are..

  • 26. Peter  |  January 27, 2010 at 3:55 pm

    Botha was correct, look at Africa, the symbol of incompetence!

  • 27. Nkanyani  |  February 16, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    whites should be celebrating that blacks were more human that their Bothas. A black man is a symbol of love and peace. Botha was just foretelling that indeed Blacks shall rule their black land. if we did not think beyond a year we would not have attained freedom and democracy. Botha has eaten humble pies though his souls should rest in peace.

  • 28. omale gregory  |  August 30, 2010 at 1:21 pm

    Botha was absolutely wrong in feeling that the black race was not human and had to use an analogy of lizard and croc to butress his point. May God forgive him. That was an attack on God the creator of mankind

    African taskmasters (rulers) have proved all the Bothas of the universe right where Peter Botha observed that the black race is an accursed one. consider the phinomenona of gross under development in Africa: hunger, unemployment,gross and painful inequality, poverty, corruption with impunity, political vendatta, civi war, rebellion, diseases, helplessness and or hopelessness, intra inter tribal tribal wars, religious clashes; all coupled with poor governance and profligate dissipation of resources and other disgusting antidiluvian practices, you will agree with Botha that Africa has a long way to go and will never catch up with the white species if the present order is sustained.Yes, the rulers of Black Africa must listen to the cry of their enslaved brethen. millions are panting for deliverance from the awful thraldom. The authentic emancipation struggle is gathering momentum but unnoticed.
    But the bothas of this world should know that what Africa is enduring today; worse was replicated in England, France, Russia and infact, throughout the developed world before the 20th century, detonating civil wars and fearful political revolutions. Hence the Black race is at a stage. Give them time, dont meddle unnecessarily in their affairs. Let them grow and develop.

  • 29. E. I. Iko  |  August 30, 2010 at 2:19 pm

    Botha was simply reckless. He was a satanist, racist and cynic. That’s why he lies moldering in the dust.May he rest in peace and may God bless Africa.

  • 30. JATTO  |  September 11, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    Botha was a courageous madman. I am full of sympathy towards remains which lay moldering in the dust. Nonetheless, the black race must learn from the alleged speech, carve out a new road map to development. this’ Jatto from sharon, Abuja.

  • 31. Mbuzi  |  October 18, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    Problem with us blacks is, we tend not to fix things and rely solemnly on the help of god. There is a possibility that god doesn’t exist and besides even if he exists black people need to fix these problems and prove that we superior. First thing we must do is we need to stop referring to ourselves as blacks, black is the colour of coal which I am yet to see a person resembling that colour. Whites called us black not because of the colour of our skin but the level of intelligence. We have people who are more lighter than some whites, why didn’t they call Indians since most in Durban are black light black or black indians? Why they not calling Japanese light whites? Come on

  • 32. Kennedy Kachalla  |  February 25, 2011 at 3:57 pm

    Africa is finally out of the shackles of racism! Botha should be forgiven because he did not know what he was doing or saying. GOD created us all in HIS own image. May HIS name be blessed because HE is the final judge.
    It is high time African leaders rise to this challenge and stop being jackals who are prawling the political landscape for their selfish interets at the detriment of the masses or else some of Botha’s ideas , even though myopic,will represent the true picture of the black race.

    It was the wonderfull, un interesting, against humanity, with full of unreasonable words, in short that was racial segragation, inhumanity, anability to think and differentiate who is, and not human being. it is better to be economically poor than being poor in reasoning.

  • 40. BARAKA SAASITA, Z.  |  November 20, 2013 at 8:10 pm

    Africans are killing themselves is valid today forexample M23, Al-shabaab, Bokoharani are fighting and killing themselves, let us ask ourselves where they get weapons?P.W.Botha was true that they are giving Africans weapons and are killing themselves

    • 41. Desdery Martiniani Sulle  |  May 27, 2014 at 2:37 pm

      As you know mr. Baraka in this world we live there are two things involves, either to be a critical thinker or the one who follows others’ ideas hence rejects their ways, (betrayal). So those killings done by el-shabaab, bokko harram, m23, mungiki, and other in Afrika are done with the support from either within or outside their teritories i.e their mother countries. So people have to think clearly and decide correctly before performing an action.
