Pregnant South African women are deliberately drinking large quantities of alcohol to harm their unborn babies in a bid to earn more welfare money, it has been claimed.

Expectant mothers living in the Eastern Cape, one of the poorest areas in South Africa, are bingeing on a ‘moonshine’ type drink which contains battery acid – with some drinking up to five and six bottles a day.

It has been reported they do it to claim a disability benefit from the government – using their disabled children as a source of income.

Video taken by Sky News shows a mother drinking a homemade brew called ‘kah-kah’ while heavily pregnant.

‘If I don’t drink this, I’m like someone who is sick,’ one woman told Sky News.

‘I can’t sleep and I can’t think straight but when I have this then I am better and I can do anything.’

The addictive milky brown brew is made from yeast, water and battery acid.

It is sold in illegal drinking dens called ‘shebeens’.

The houses are often raided by police who close them down. But as soon as one is shut, another opens.

The World Health Organisation said there has been an increase in the number of babies born with Foetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) in the area  since 2002.

The syndrome is also the most common birth defect in South Africa.

The irreversible symptoms mean children suffer from speech problems, physical deformities, learning difficulties and behavioural issues.

Families receive 250 South African rand  – or £18 – per child, per month but a disabled child brings in around 1200 rand a month (£87).

In some of the farming communities, the World Health Organisation said heavy drinking partly stems from the 400-year-old practice of giving slaves and their descendants alcohol in recompense and to keep them captive through addiction.

The woman filmed said she drank between ‘five to six bottles a day’ and the binge drinking would start from nine in the morning.

  • I suspect that a lot of black American expectant women dope it up just to get the newborn on SSI.

    • The__Bobster

      They don’t have to. They just claim that their pickaninnies are retarded and get disability payments for each of them.

      • Probably because they really are “low IQ.” Even though there’s not supposed to be any such thing as IQ.

      • So CAL Snowman

        It’s not really that hard of a claim to prove is it?

  • Triarius

    It’s a black thing, you wouldn’t understand.

  • Put aside your value judgements. Worrying about the health of your unborn baby is s-o-o white.
    (sarcasm off)

      Half retarded, fully retarded children….what’s the difference? My god, the depths the savages of this world will not plunge to for a white hand-out.

      • pcmustgo

        But how much worse is this than the Chinese and Russians who scheme, sell other people’s organs, sell their unwitting sister’s and cousins into prostitution abroad, abuse/neglect orphanage kids (so many WHITE babies would be up for adoption if the Russians and Eastern Europeans didn’t have such a pathetically dysfunctional adoption and orphanage system and if their women weren’t such drunks, destroying the baby in the womb- sad state of affairs when whites can get a more healthy baby from Ethiopia or Guatemala than white Russia)

        So I’m saying, A LOT OF THIS IS POVERTY… this is the extremes people go to when poor.

        • 48224

          “So I’m saying, A LOT OF THIS IS POVERTY… this is the extremes people go to when poor.”
          How about not having any kids if you are poor? I would gladly pay for these women to have their tubes tied.

        • Actually, many Eastern European women end up in prostitution when they respond to newspaper ads promising jobs such as waitressing or clerking in Germany or some other country.

          • Stealthmodeon


            Most of the “sex slave” claims involving white countries are shown to be the feminist mantra of “white males bad – everyone else good”.. Although slavery in non-white countries in not an issue to them…..

        • KenelmDigby

          In biology, the maternal urge to protect her OWN children is supposedly one of the strongest mammalianinstincts that there is.
          Try to rob a tigress of her cubs and see how far you get.
          All I can say is that the character of black Africans is far, far worse than anything even I could imagine. They are savage beyond the mammalian genus – they resemble fish and reptiles more – fish and reptiles which unfortunately have a degree of shamelessness and cunning.

        • OlderWoman

          Actually I believe this is the extreme people go to when they are evil.

    “In some of the farming communities, the World Health Organisation said heavy drinking partly stems from the 400-year-old practice of giving slaves and their descendants alcohol in recompense and to keep them captive through addiction.”

    Black people are never responsible for their own actions.

    When all of the White people are gone they will still tell their children stories about how the evil White man is the reason why their lives are still gone.

    • Norman

      In the African country which is the furthest one South, many farming communities which produce spirits, (wine, brandy, etc.), pay their workers with a portion of the harvest which they helped to bring in. Farm workers who helped bring in a crop of potatoes would get a sack of potatoes, however on a wine farm where there were no potatoes to be had, the workers would be paid with a casket of wine. This is known as the ‘Dop System’.
      ‘Dop’ is ‘drink’ in Afrikaans and the reason it is still known as the Dop System is because when the new government wanted to abolish the practice a fews ago, the farm workers rebelled and proclaimed how they are entitled to the free wine.

      • eduard

        This only happened on a Friday, and it was amongst the coloured workers in Western Cape. The so-called spirits was actually “vaaljapie” which was not a full fermentation of wine. It had a low alcohol content and the coloured folks had to consume gallons of the stuff before getting sloshed. Needless to say they were sloshed the whole weekend. Bear in mind there was no blacks in that area before 1994.

    The janitor in my building houses and supports four of her adult children, one grandchild, and one adult niece with two children. Only one of them besides our janitor has worked in the past five years. After years of listening to her incessant rambling, I’ve been able to figure out how they all survive on a janitor’s salary. Apparently, several years back the janitor’s oldest son was shot and killed by a convenience store security guard (we have those here in St. Louis, much to my surprise when I moved here here with a young blue eyed blonde wife) moments after he stepped off the bus from the jail he was just released from. Everyone in the family ended up getting settlement money. One of the adult daughters has been in three car accidents and lives off those settlements. The adult nieces has a son with some kind of disability and collects money every month for him. And, of course, they all receive monthly welfare, two of the adult children collect disability, and the janitor also apparently gets a monthly check from either one of the Catholic churches or charities, I haven’t quite figured that one out. The janitor often complains to me that the adult niece never takes her disabled son anywhere because he’s “too much work” and is “embarrassing”. So, of course, the janitor raises him while his mother goes tramping around all day.

    • OlderWoman

      Why am I NOT surprised at this story?

    • pcmustgo

      This is TYPICAL in the Black community. One relative, usually a woman, takes on the martyr role for the entire family and busts her as… supporting them all, even children that are not hers. She’s obviously masochistic.

      • pcmustgo

        But now that you throw in the welfare check scenario and “making money off of the deadbeat relatives” I now see the self-motivation involved… to think , I thought they did it from the love of their hearts.

        Yes, I too had a black “friend” who had a relatively nice, big house. Found out later it was from his gangster brothers car accident lawsuit settlement.

        I’ve heard that’s one reason Black males, besides “bravado”, purposely saunter out into the middle of the street in front of cars- they don’t mind getting hit, they can get lawsuit money.

    • nobody

      They actually call those settlements the “ghetto lottery” or the “auto lotto”. Yes I am being 100% serious.

  • MekongDelta69

    Tell that to this lunatic:
    Watch her scramble to figure out a way to blame white people.

    Btw – I hope they mess up the ratios of the ingredients and drink LOTS of battery acid. I mean, like an entire Delco…

    • 48224

      Whites destroyed their traditional hunter, gatherer society so of course white liberals will make that claim. In a way, it is true. If not for whites, they’d be out throwing a stone axe at a zebra with no hope or concept of welfare benefits.
      From college, I remember one of my professors saying, “when a more advanced society comes in contact with a less advanced one, the less advanced one is destroyed…..intentional or not, it goes away.

      • MekongDelta69

        Hey – whenever a zebra goes running down my street, I just take my Ma Deuce and voila… Dinner for twenty and no prep time!!

      • dhs

        If the “advanced” society is infected with Feminism & Liberalism, the less advanced society may destroy the “advanced” society.

  • Ulick

    This article about mothers putting their own children at risk for a welfare check reminds me of an article I read about similar atrocious parenting for the benefit of defrauding the welfare system right here in America (see below).  What do the two cases have in common despite being half a world apart?  If you guessed that it’s disproportionately and overwhelming black mothers jeopardizing their children’s health to live off the system in both cases, then you’re today’s winner.

    “A legacy of unintended side effects”

    Geneva Fielding, a single mother since age 16, has struggled to raise her three energetic boys in the housing projects of Roxbury. Nothing has come easily, least of all money.
    Even so, she resisted some years back when neighbors told her about a federal program called SSI that could pay her thousands of dollars a year. The benefit was a lot like welfare, better in many ways, but it came with a catch: To qualify, a child had to be disabled. And if the disability was mental or behavioral — something like ADHD — the child pretty much had to be taking psychotropic drugs.

    Fielding never liked the sound of that. She had long believed too many children take such medications, and she avoided them, even as clinicians were putting names to her boys’ troubles: oppositional defiant disorder, depression, ADHD. But then, as bills mounted, friends nudged her about SSI: “Go try.’’

    Eventually she did, putting in applications for her two older sons. Neither was on medications; both were rejected. Then last year, school officials persuaded her to let her 10-year-old try a drug for his impulsiveness. Within weeks, his SSI application was approved.

    “To get the check,’’ Fielding, 34, has concluded with regret, “you’ve got to medicate the child.’’

    There is nothing illegal about what Fielding did — and a lot that is perhaps understandable for a mother in her plight. But her worries and her experience capture, in one case, how this little-scrutinized $10 billion federal disability program has gone seriously astray, becoming an alternative welfare system with troubling built-in incentives that risk harm to children.

    • pcmustgo

      I think more of their children need to be medicated…. BTW, HOW WOULD ANYONE KNOW IF THEY ACTUALLY TAKE THE MEDS… UNLESS THEY RUN BLOODTESTS ON THEM????

    • The__Bobster

      This is one of the ways mudflaps avoided the effects of welfare reform. Does it really matter which agency the check comes from?

    • Morris Thecat

      anyone ever notice that black women never struggle to keep their legs crossed?

  • pcmustgo

    I THINK I READ HERE ON AMREN (?) ABOUT BLACK AND LATINO WELFARE TYPES HERE IN NYC PURPOSELY KEEPING THEIR KIDS DUMB (removing them from school, not letting them read) so that the kids would appear learning disabled/autistic and get welfare checks… Sad stuff.

    • pcmustgo

      SSI , social security checks I meant, for their “disability”.

  • 48224

    The link above didn’t work but I found the story on YouTube:

  • pcmustgo

    “In some of the farming communities, the World Health Organisation said heavy drinking partly stems from the 400-year-old practice of giving slaves and their descendants alcohol in recompense and to keep them captive through addiction.”

    They also keep the child soldiers they use in their genocidal wars all drugged up on cocaine, etc.

  • razorrare

    How can this be? Arent we all created equal? Sick Sick Sick Sick Sick…end all black welfare worldwide,Now!!

  • Integration Anxiety

    Video taken by Sky News shows a mother drinking a homemade brew called ‘kah-kah’ while heavily pregnant.

    Kah kah. A childish description of a fecal substance. I bet this has a similar smell/taste.

    • Sherman_McCoy

      Especially if you chase it with some jenkum.

      • Christ, people trying to “become one” with number 2. How sick is that?

  • I am surprized that South Africa can afford to pay welfare payments. I thought they were broke.

    • Howard W. Campbell

      When the Chinese move into Africa to strip out all of the precious metals; you can rest assured that this will come to a halt. They will not pay any sort of welfare. Those deformed kids will become the new canaries in mines.

      • Morris Thecat

        more likely they will be the kung pow on the menu

        • Sherman_McCoy

          Doubtless, if it is the meat in the stew for the native “workers.” But I don’t think that the hHinese themselves would touch it, even though any other type of animal or vegetable is fair game.

    • KenelmDigby

      The remaining Whites pay for it all.

    • Laager

      South Africa has the most imbalanced welfare system in the world – the highest number of recipients dependent on the smallest tax base.

      Here are some examples of how the new black administrators do their maths.

      Since black majority rule in 1994 about 1 million whites [20% of the white population] have emigrated. They are mainly professionals, skilled technicians and business entrepreneurs. It is estimated that for every one of them that leaves about 6 blue collar jobs are lost.
      At least 250,000 whites who worked in municipal, provincial, para-statal and state posts have been expelled from the work force. These jobs have now been allocated to untrained and incompetent blacks.
      With their families these about 800, 000 whites now live in destitute circumstances. They receive no state support benefits as they are deemed to be “previously advantaged” They rely on charities for survival. A new law has been passed forcing charities to spend 80% of their aid on the black majority – i.e 80% less for the whites who created the charities in the first place.
      Since 1994 about 40,000 whites have been brutally slain. That means at least another 10 to 20 thousand tax payers, employers and job creators have been removed from the work force and population.
      Within this figure are nearly 4,000 white [mainly Afrikaner] farmers. The result is that for the first time in recorded history South Africa has become a net importer of food.

      All the time the black birth rate continues to exceed the white birth rate.

      The bubble has to burst. There simply are not enough tax payers to support the system. Of course there is business tax, VAT, customs and excise taxes to cover the holes. How long this will continue is anybodies guess.
      Expect South Africa to come knocking on the USA door for aid one of these days.

      Under white administration this never happened. The country always paid it’s own way. The liberals can chalk up this impending financial collapse as their greatest achievement in “liberating” the black man from minority white rule in South Africa.

  • Morris Thecat

    “The irreversible symptoms mean children suffer from speech problems, physical deformities, learning difficulties and behavioural issues.”—gee, with black people how can you tell?

  • Some Guy

    This is all Whiteys fault! You stingy racist former slave owners…all of you!
    Will blacks ever be held accountable for their actions?

    • nobody

      The funniest thing about it is that most of our relatives likely came here from Europe well after slavery ended. Try explaining this to a black though, they just get a blank look in their eyes and they obviously can’t wrap their minds around that simple concept.

  • Morris Thecat

    the self destruction of blacks is never horrifying, it is gratifying

  • ViktorNN

    Good lord! The lengths some people will go to avoid an honest day’s work…

    Battery acid, like anything else, is a dangerous weapon in the hands of a black.

  • shmo123

    That’s so sick and depraved, I find it really hard to believe.

  • Anon

    This is literally nothing. There was a guy in the congo who was pissed because he wasn’t getting to steal enough aid from white countries so he sent his military out with machetes to hack off one arm of each child they could find.

    It worked. Aid workers flooded in and he extorted a fortune from them. What was the reaction of the people under his control? They were ecstatic that he found such a clever way to rip of white aid money.

    These people are thoroughly despicable and evil. Only monsters do such thing. And that is exactly what black people are….monsters.

    Another six hours on my feet at the warehouse today. It was less volume, but we were moving heavy furniture and appliances this time. I actually got tipped a few times, and the second one was five dollars, for figuring out how to easily get the used freezer into the customer’s pickup truck. In right-side-up with no damage or even much effort. One must plan these matters out.

    I don’t feel as wrung out as I did after last Friday. Even unloading the truck was easy.

  • Who ME?

    How do we know the children are being harmed by the drinking of this concoction? It probably doesn’t help them any, but if the mothers are stupid enough to drink something containing battery acid, (and drink it repeatedly!) the kids surely wouldn’t have been any too bright anyway, would they?

    • Michael_C_Scott

      I can see that it might be pretty hard to tell whether or not an African child has fetal alcohol syndrome, as being dim-witted, ugly and emotionally unbalanced is normal for them.

  • Old Angry White Woman

    White American women can tell you to the day how far along in their pregnancy they are, “25 weeks, 4 days” for example. They usually don’t drink or ingest anything they even think might be possibly harmful. They avoid things like sushi, (Mercury) and don’t drink beverages containing caffeine, let alone alcohol, and test their blood sugar daily. They have ultrasound tests at 20 weeks to screen the child for possible problems, (and incidentally to discover the sex of the baby.) Now all this wasn’t available when my children were born, but even back in the 70’s we white women had sense enough not to smoke or drink or take drugs while we were expecting, not to ride horses or fall down stairs, or any number of other things that might harm our unborn child. Of course, WE wanted to bear healthy children. Most of us succeeded–maybe that is the “White privilege” I keep hearing about.

    • No white intelligence. You did not want your children to be messed up so you did what you did. Others really do not care what happens to their kids.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      The fish that contain mercury are the big ones: apex predators like shark, tuna and swordfish. Any environmental contaminant is usually concentrated by a factor of ten with each step up the food chain one goes. Eating talapia, trout or whiting should be fine during pregnancy.

  • FourFooted_Messiah

    hhmm, you’d think that would kill THEM as well as their babies.

    Perhaps they need to drink MORE of it.

  • trollsy

    So?They do the same thing here in our country.They will even discourage schools from teaching their kids to read because that might endanger their check.
