The Cape is now The Sovereign State of Good Hope

The Sovereign State of Good Hope (SSGH) took down the South African flag and hoisted their flag in Cape Town on July 16, 2018 at 11 a.m.

Parliament in Cape Town has been served with an Eviction Notice to vacate the property this month.

The Sovereign State of Good Hope is the formation of a new sovereign nation state resulting from a legitimate and lawful process of secession by the traditional hereditary tribal leader of the Khoisan Nation, Gaob (which loosely translates to King in English) Khoebaha Calvin Cornelius III.

The territory includes most of what is currently known as the Cape province of South Africa, and extends to the northern border of the Cape and ends at the Fish River on the eastern frontier.

 

 

 

The king was sworn in in 2001 with the final stage of the secession completed on July 16, 2018. The king also addressed his people.

Seeking self-determination -- secession -- its supporters claim, has come about largely due to colossal incompetence and corruption by the African National Congress (ANC) government. This is no real surprise given the ANC's communist nature.

Massive unemployment, "corruption of resources" and a greatly devalued currency are responsible for the secessionist actions. South Africa also has the highest violent crime rate in the world, with many people living in total poverty and absolute fear.

Racial demagoguery has also played a key role.

The ANC has propagated the belief that white people stole land from the black people of South Africa, and that they therefore have the right to take that land back by any means necessary. However, it was not these people's land to begin with. There were virtually no “black”/Nguni/Bantu people in South Africa at the time when the Dutch East India Company arrived; rather this genetic group/tribe were located further to the northeastern parts of South Africa.

It has been documented in historical record that the Original people of the land that has become the Sovereign State of Good Hope, were what is now known as the Khoisan Nation -- often referred to as "Bushmen" or "Hottentots."

Irrespective of how serious any of this really is, it will be interesting to see how it all plays out socially, legally and politically.

Hopefully, there will be no violence associated with these events.
