The Africa Report: A quarter billion for this?

Africa MoneyOn Sunday Mike Rinder posted the quarterly report the East US OT Committee covering their production during the last quarter of 2013. You can read that report here

We have just come into possession of the same report for Africa and have posted it below. It covers the activities of the OT Committees for Cape Town, Durban, Joburg, Joburg North, Port Elizabeth and Pretoria Orgs.

We took some time to read through it and insert relevant commentary where we felt it necessary. However the more we read it the more it became clear that this full report stands on it’s own and requires no further commentary –  so we have left it as-is.

In our opinion it is no less than a catastrophic indictment of a group claiming to be enjoying the greatest expansion in its history. But don’t take our word for it, you can determine your own conclusion.

Be warned, it’s a lot of reading – as a Word document it spans 17 pages. It is important to know that this was written in response to a request from “uplines” to give an outline of the OT Committee activities. It therefore constitutes the very best of what is being produced in South Africa by it’s top members. We do not wish to nit-pick every small little thing, we certainly don’t need to. But it can’t be forgotten that when viewing the report, this is the level of production that has occurred after a financial investment of a quarter of a billion Rand, and counting, in mostly empty (or demolished) buildings.

Here it is:

Africa OT Committees Report December 2013


There is a huge buzz across the African continent following the release of GAT2, with Joburg Org having more sign-ups in a week than at any time in its history. And here’s another News Flash: virtually the entire Port Elizabeth OTC has joined staff! There were several fund raisers across the continent over the last quarter as Cape Town, Durban and Joburg North head down the home straight in readiness for becoming Ideal Orgs. Our newest Ideal Org, Pretoria, has settled into its wonderful new premises and public are streaming into the Org to experience first hand LRH’s legacy and postulates for Africa.  


 Actions taken to help Scientologists in your field to fully avail themselves of the Golden Age of Tech Phase II training and processing.

Cape Town OTC did call-in for the GATII events which were held at The Strand Towers, a very upstat hotel close to the Org. The space was large, chairs comfortable and the visual display and sound excellent and each event ended with five star catering.

61 Public and 17 staff attended the first event held on Friday 22nd November and several ‘out of town’ trained and experienced public, who had come in from the West Coast, sat mesmerized by what was being ‘rolled out’. The tone level of the public kept increasing throughout the evening. At the close of the event the ED Cape Town Day introduced her GATII trained staff stating that they were ready and willing to produce Clears.

There were 57 Public and 8 Staff attendees at the Saturday night event. Everyone was totally keyed out by the data given and couldn’t wait to touch the new e-meter on display and get the data, bombarding Org staff with questions and making plans to get onto training and auditing lines. One OT, who had been on the Briefing Course with LRH in the ‘60s, was heard to say “I will definitely be doing the Student Hat now!”

Study materials and promotional booklets were on display and the new personal Bridge to Total Freedom was enthusiastically accepted by the Public.

One OTC member has signed up and started on his Student Hat Course this is his success story.

Progress on Files Projects.

During this quarter OTC members continued with their successful action of maintaining current filing particles to keep the CF files in PT and putting the CF files into chronological order.

OTC was advised that the Org would move in November. CF I/C Claudia N identified past successful actions of CF moves, which included: – identifying suitable space and obtaining ED CTD approval as quickly as possible, correct labelling and securing of the CF file boxes and moving the entire CF prior to the Org move.

related MEST, was moved on Saturday 9th November. 156 Boxes were moved and set up in alphabetical order ready for production by the end of the day and the space secured with the installation of a new lock.


Active OTC book-sellers have done well this quarter, disseminating LRH books and DVDs, selling a total of 65.

IAS Fundraising Activities and major statuses made.

Three IAS briefing events were held this quarter – OTC assisted with call-ins, appointments and regging. A total of R50,000 was collected.

25th October a briefing was held at the Org by IAS AF Mr Alex Pena to approximately 15 attendees to give them the good news – his purpose in SA is to help open the AO AF and gave news of what IAS campaigns are doing. CFD AF Elmien briefed attendees that she is now working with the IAS and all the buildings are under her management.

26th October an IAS event dinner was held to 30 attendees (23 Public + 7 Staff) with Mr Alex Pena and CFD AF. The event was awesome. Mr. Pena spoke about command intention regarding Africa and how the AO will serve the whole of the African continent.  The CFD AF then briefed attendees that official permission had been obtained to go ahead and build the AO on the Kyalami Castle land and said that Kyalami Castle will be retained as an up stat hotel for Scientologists to use while taking services at the AO.

4D Campaign Activities (Truth about Drugs, CCHR, Youth for Human Rights, Way to Happiness, Volunteer Minister)

The Truth About Drugs campaign run by Narconon has been very productive this past quarter. Drug education was carried out at 22 schools and institutions to 2,548 students. The Way to Happiness PSAs were presented to 2,793 students.

For the first time the Western Cape Education Department invited, and paid, for the program to be run in 5 of their schools. As Narconon has worked with their schools for the past 14 years this is a major breakthrough. The event was videoed and the Social Worker at the Education Department arranged to show it to other staff members. Narconon has also done work for the City of Cape Town and are now on their official vendor database.

Peer Leader Training was given to 160 students; this is a two hour workshop where the students are taught 3 assists, locational, nerve and havingness, enabling them to help others. A video has been posted on the web

CCHR DVDs, Marketing of Madness, Age of Fear and Dead Wrong, Human Rights and Drug PSA’s, continued to be aired on the Cape Town TV community station to mid November.

CCHR I/C, Erica C, has been involved with helping a 21 year old get off psych and street drugs who has started on the program run by Narconon, Darling. His mom jumped on board to help and landed up doing the Purif with him.

Truth About Drugs booklets and DVDs have been donated to a lady to distribute at a youth group in Fish Hoek where she helps out.


The OTC Ambassador program was completed at the end of the last quarter

Actions taken to help Scientologists in your field to fully avail themselves of the Golden Age of Tech Phase II training and processing.

The biggest news which outstripped everything else was the launch of GAT II and the return of two of our Outer Org Trainees Brett Kidd and Runesu Chazvemba for the launch, so that our Academy could offer day and foundation schedules for the first time in several years.

Our two ED’s Taryn Retief (Day) and Grant Morgan (Foundation) travelled to Flag for the ED summit and returned to spark the promotion for the release of GAT II in Durban.

All hands call in was begun 4 weeks before the event and achieved 200 confirms, the highest ever for a Scientology event in Durban since the 1960’s.

An on source GAT II academy has opened the gates to expansion and several public whose next step was objectives have now routed onto the SRD, amongst these are OTC members Krish Govender and Jason Anthony.

What major activities, events, production and successes has your OTC had in moving Scientologists in your field move up The Bridge to Clear and OT?

The release of GAT 2 was the most exhilarating experience in history of Scientology and Joburg OTC members wasted no time in taking advantage of this golden opportunity to receive the Tech as LRH intended it. The GAT 2 event was held at a brand new auditorium in Fordsburg, Johannesburg, and was attended by several hundred Scientologists from both Joburg and Joburg North Orgs.

The atmosphere was intense as COB detailed the work that had gone into verifying and validating every piece of tech that LRH developed. The audience were at times in stitches from laughter, and at other times in tears, at the revelations made by COB on what had happened to the tech over the last 60 years.

Meantime, our OTC members have made full use of the mind-blowing news that going up the Bridge is cheaper and quicker than ever before. Warren Bruckmann and Isabella Ryan both arrived on service at ANZO to do OT levels, Diane Bruckmann returned from Flag on OT7, Shannon Green and Neil Singh started the Purification Rundown, Didi Singh started a Progress program and will then route onto the Purif.

Joburg OTC contributed majorly to Joburg Org’s 80 sign-ups immediately post the GAT 2 event, the highest in the Org’s history. A further 33 people signed up for courses in the week following the event (though not all from the OTC).

OTC chairman Renie Habib, OT Ambassador Sally Anne Cooke and our Basics I/C Marie Frankel were particularly active in recovering people back onto the Bridge and Basics during the quarter.

OTC volunteer hours on various activities – running the Purif for the Org, files projects, 4D campaigns, etc, amounted to 1,730 for the last 3 months. All OTC members were actively involved in call-in for the GAT 2 event, one of the best attended events in our history.

Helping Scientologists in your field onto and through the Basics Books and Lectures

Our Basics recovery project continues to set the tone for the rest of the country, under basics I/C Mike & Marie Frankel. A total of 25 people were recovered onto the Basics during the quarter. Each OTC member was assigned 3 to 5 Basics students from the Joburg Field to recover, and the OTC member is required to keep in contact with these people and ensure they are moving and winning on their Basics. This has been done on a weekly basis and the Academy in the Org has started filling up, particularly since the launch of GAT 2. In fact, on some evenings there is no space for those listening to LRH lectures, so public have realised they have to get in early!

Basics recovery stats are monitored by the Basics Project administrator who gathers data from the Academy every Thursday. From these reports, we are able to maintain tight control on the public that are in the process of being recovered.

New names are given out regularly.  The appointed OTC member stays in comm with his/her recovery ensuring that the public is progressing and winning on course. The project is driven by Marie & Mike Frankel, who took on the post of Basics I/Cs, and ensures that targets are being met, public recovered, and that OTC members themselves are cruising on their Basics.

Fundraising for Ideal Orgs

Joburg Org OTC participated in several fund raising activities to raise funds for Joburg North Org, which is to be the next Ideal Org in Africa (and the second in Africa). The total amount of funds raised for Ideal Orgs over the last 3 months was $133,962. Our two-time Grammy Award winner Robin Hogarth, and Mike Frankel, continue to raise the bar in terms of their efforts to get all Orgs in Africa up to the level of St Hill size, so that AO Africa can open without delay. Robin spends dozens of hours each week, including travelling overseas, to assist in the Ideal Org fund raising drive.

The Joburg Alliance helped with numerous Joburg North fundraisers, including the Bollywood-themed fundraiser which – as the name suggests – had a particularly strong Indian theme. A total of R400,000 ($40,000) was raised, and was the best attended Joburg North fundraiser to date. Joburg OTC helped with set-ups and call-in for this fundraiser. This was followed with a very successful Halloween-themed fundraiser at Joburg Org called Witches and Wizards. Again, an amount of R400,000 ($40,000) was raised at this fundraiser. OTC member Robin Hogarth organised a concert at the fundraiser, where the children were given a chance to show off their acting skills. It was one of the most successful and hilarious capers yet put on by the OTC. Joburg North fundraisers are all very well attended by Joburg OTC members, who also routinely help with set-up and call-in.

Progress on Files Projects

Joburg OTC continued with its files project, focusing on the student and Org ethics filing. Sabina Laktionova is the I/C of the project and has arranged various public to help the OTC complete this task.


A total of 394 books were sold to public over the last three months, most of them by our star book seller, Dave Atkinson, who is also our top Power FSM in South Africa. The Joburg OTC took part in a bookathon where several books were sold.

IAS Donations

Joburg OTC also got behind the IAS campaign to bring sanity and LRH tech to the world. A total of $15,700 was raised by OTC members during the quarter. Nirvana Cooke (4D campaign project I/C) helped the IAS i/c, Alex Pinah, arrange an event at the LRH house, where 2 Lifetime memberships were sold. Karen Richards, Mike Stern and Don Moll (all from JHB org OTC became family patrons). Nirvana Cooke also raised $1000 from Victor Lopes for the IAS. More than half the Joburg OTC members are now Patrons!

4D Campaigns

Mike Stern from Joburg Org OT Committee arranged two Truth about Drugs talks at Geluksdal community centre. The second event resulted in the training of Geluksdal church group on how to disseminate the Truth about Drugs book and get drug education taking place in the community.

Fiona Caulder, 4D campaign project OTC member helped to distribute the Truth about Drugs booklets at a march organized by the Edenvale police. She distributed over 4,000 Truth about Drugs booklets.


Helping Scientologists in your field move up The Bridge to Clear and OT

The release of GAT 2 was a dream realised and created a huge revitalisation of the field.  People who had not been seen for many years came to the event and they could be seen looking over the new E-meter, talking about the Basics and becoming part of the group again.

The Joburg North team arrived back from Flag and were presented to the field.

The day after the event the Org became busy setting up the Purif Centre, painting it, cleaning out the area and getting ready for the inflow. Our Flag-trained auditor has already got down to business and is auditing the field.  Enquiries for the purif are coming in at about the rate of 5 per day.

Helping Scientologists in your field onto and through the Basics Books and Lectures, and through the complete Routes to Knowledge, and further services

Joburg North OTC member Hero Dresser has been supervising the Basics every morning while the Sups were overseas training.  Saturday and Sunday schedules have also been set up by Hero to encourage more people to continue with their basics.  Since the GATII event more and more people are moving faster on their basics and taking advantage of the extra weekend sessions.

Fundraising for Ideal Orgs.

The African Alliance has been revitalized and Joburg OTC has given great assistance to the events which have been held for the Joburg North Ideal Org.

OTC member Ken Humphries went to Pretoria Org to give them a briefing on the progress being made and also to get them revitalized about finishing off the Gauteng Ideal Org triangle before moving onto the rest of South Africa.

OTC Chairman Jean Gonsalves and Fund Raiser I/C and Deputy Chair, Philip Park attended a Joburg OTC meeting and thanked them for their continual help and further discussions were held regarding a future fund raising event to be held at Joburg North.

All the Joburg North Events are Alliance events.  Joburg North has been very fortunate to have Sea Org member Kimberlee and Seb Howarth regularly at Joburg North OTC meetings. With Kimberlee, Seb and OTC Event theme I/C Mandi Walbaum amazing events were created and an amount of $133.962 was raised.

The events became so exciting with themes etc that on the confirmeds the percentages were 75% of those confirmed arrived. In the past it had only been between 25 and 35%.

 Joburg North OTC together with Kimberlee and Mandi set the themes for exciting events.  Joburg OTC assist tremendously with call ins.

A couple of the Events held were:

Bollywood- an amazing event, the majority of those who attended dressed in Bollywood attire and there was even a team of Bollywood dancers organised for the evening to assist further with creating the atmosphere.  A total of R400,000 ($40,000) was raised.

Witches and Wizards was the next event.  Joburg Org OTC member Robin Hogarth organised a concert at the fundraiser and where the children were given a chance to show off their acting skills. It was one of the most successful and hilarious capers yet put on by the OTC. Joburg North fundraisers.  R400,000 ($40,000).

Progress on Files Projects

The mammoth project of getting the files from different areas of the org were collected together and the sorting began.

OTC Members Ashley Pillay, Ken Humphries, Philip Park and Jean Gonsalves are the regulars every Saturday morning.  It was then a matter of getting these sorted files into accessible containers. John Abbot, OTC member, together with Philip Park, organized to get filing cabinets. This made the files accessible ready for Phase II and also created space in which to work.

Phase 1 is completed a huge target attained.


OTC members help regularly at the stress testing and in the International Stress test weekend, Joburg North was the top org on the planet for book sales during that weekend.

4D Campaigns

The Way to Happiness continues to be distributed by Carron Mancini and her partner to the Mine areas in and around Johannesburg. When the ‘uprising’ at the Marikana mine occurred (an international reported disaster) Carron and her partner drove down to the mine where the police and miners were fighting and distribute the Way to Happiness book in the thousands.  They continue to distribute to other mines ensuring that no such incident happens again.


Moving People Up the Bridge:

An amazing situation occurred within our OTC. We had a really gung-ho group of 5 OTC members in Port Elizabeth assisting in the Org and in the field, and they decided – what the hell – let’s all joint staff! So our OTC numbers may have dwindled a bit in the last few weeks, but our staff sign-ups are through the roof!

We have recruited 1 person in PE and had another prospect, but she too signed up for Staff.

Our Committee is at this point spread along the coast from East London to the North of PE (4 hours drive, one way) and George to the South of PE (also 4 hours drive away).

Helping Scientologists in your field onto and through the Basics Books and Lectures to get ready for Golden Age of Tech Phase II.

One public was recovered who had stopped doing his Basics about 1 year ago. He is back on his Extension Courses and is sending in Lessons daily.

Another girl has also been recovered. She is now doing very well and is having magic wins.

4D Campaign Activities (Truth about Drugs, CCHR, Youth for Human Rights, Way to Happiness, Volunteer Minister)

 In Plettenberg Bay and George much work is done in getting TWTH Booklets out in the community. More than 1000 booklets are given out per week.

 Helping Scientologists in the field to move up the Bridge to Clear and OT and helping Scientologists to get through the Basics

 As an OT committee, the importance of moving up the Bridge to Clear and OT was emphasised in the following ways:

  • Ensuring members of the Pretoria Field are moving up the Bridge both in the Org and in the Field. This has included 9 starts on the Bridge between Life Repair and NED processing
  • One of the OTC members is currently at Flag, having completed OT VI-A, VI-B  and has started on OT VI-C
  • Technical briefings have been given by members of the Pretoria OTC covering LRH tech related to Finance, Ups and Downs, the Bridge and Personal Values and Integrity, where the introductory courses were promoted, which resulted in courses being purchased by the public.
  • At graduation, one of the OTC members gave a briefing on LRH Admin Tech.
  • Another member of the OTC continues to Audit on OT VII and has recently been back to Flag for his 6 month check.
  • Members of the public and the OTC continue on with the Basics.

Assisting in the building of Ideal Orgs

The Ideal Org Alliance meetings have been attended by Lee-Hazel de Bruyn, of the Pretoria OT Committee, as the representative from our committee. In addition, she has assisted with some of the setting op of the décor for Ideal Org Fundraisers. Other members of the committee have also attended some of these meetings, as well as some of the Johannesburg Fundraisers.

Book Sales:

The OTC member in charge of book sales, is Robbie Knott, who has assisted in setting up book-selling in shopping centres on a monthly basis.

Books have also been sold by other members of the OTC. A total of 36 books have been sold by these OTC members over the past 3 months.

Business Expansion Club:

A breakfast was held at the Pretoria Org, which was attended by about 12 members of public, a talk was presented by a business person where success was shared on the application of LRH Admin tech in his business.

An OTC member is working with the Royal families of South Africa to introduce LRH Admin tech.


Two of the OTC members, Eduard and Sandra Kleyn, continue with Afrikaans translations as requested by the Translations unit.

The project currently being worked on is the Afrikaans Way to Happiness Film, the DMSMH Film having been completed.

Information on handling the Drug problems:

An information meeting was held at the Pretoria Org where about 65 non-Scientology Public attending a briefing. The briefing was given by OSA on the Truth about Drugs. The Pretoria OTC members assisted at that briefing.

Birthday Game

The OTC members support the birthday game and have a new OTC Committee member (Roelof Lategan) as the Birthday Game I/C for the committee.

54 thoughts on “The Africa Report: A quarter billion for this?

  1. Very highly commend to whoever is leaking this truth.

    This is what the internet is for – we’re all entitled to facts, true data, and freedom of expression and communication.

  2. From what I read, most of what is reported equates to Money in. I dont see a stat for “Clears” Made, or “auditors” trained. Correct me if I am wrong, but it looks like the only people competing courses are staff!

    The main focus seems to be on fund raising and how many people attended events. The different types of themes for events and a smuttering of 4D stats to give credence to the whole shebang. Its also very obvious that the only names mentioned are the same old, same old. Didnt see anyone’s name mentioned that I havent seen over the last 20 years or so.

    It seems like just over a million Rand was raised for the entire 2013! Wow! some of the declares gave more than that in one sitting.

    The other thing I observed was that there is no mention at all of the missions! People like Di Woodley just gets ignored, and she’s such a hard worker and literally funds her mission all by herself (with the financial help of Paul). Jory Mission? Not one mention. Its as if the orgs dont have missions and that the missions are an embarresment!

    As for the people recovered! Well please mention how many! So are its all a broad generality and heresay. LRH says in HCO PL of 29 Feb 1972 – CORRECT COMM:
    “9. One demands full particulars, not half reports or vague generalies. (Nonsuppressive comm)” – and:
    “MADHOUSE (Same policy)
    An org that has no comm discipline is a madhouse. It will be expensive. It will produce ver littel. It will try to deliver overt products. And it will drive its execs up the chimney.”

    And HCO Policy letter of 2 Nov 1970m- THE THEORY OF SCIENTOLOGY ORGANIZATIONS:
    “The last is a pet hate of Scientology people. Generally its form is “everybody knows.” Example: “They say that George is doing a bad job,” or “Nobody likes the last newsletter.” The proper rejoinder is “Who is Everybody?” You’ll find it was one person who had a name. When you have critical data omit the “everybody’ generality. Say whol Say where. Otherwise, you’ll form a bad datum for somebody.”

    So much for correct, on tech reporting….

    • Almost the whole report is vague padded fluff because they have nothing worthwhile to report.

      Makes me think of 30 year olds putting school first team hockey player on their CV. But nobody cares what you did at 16, so why add it to the CV? Because the applicant has done nothing of note between 16 and 30!

    • “The GAT 2 event was held at a brand new auditorium in Fordsburg, Johannesburg, and was attended by several hundred Scientologists from both Joburg and Joburg North Orgs.”
      – No stat! I heard it was about 500 attendees – to the greatest ever event in Scientology? And for BOTH orgs. Too embarrassing for a Cont org to specify?

      “We had a really gung-ho group of 5 OTC members in Port Elizabeth assisting in the Org and in the field, and they decided – what the hell – let’s all joint staff! So our OTC numbers may have dwindled a bit in the last few weeks, but our staff sign-ups are through the roof!
      We have recruited 1 person in PE and had another prospect, but she too signed up for Staff.”
      – OTC numbers dwindled? To zero. It’s orgs poaching and stealing OTC members for staff. It happened at Joburg North org as well. They’d recruit someone then have the person ripped off for staff. What can anyone say when the viewpoint will be that staff is senior to OTC membership?

      Considering that Joburg North’s building costs about R21million before renovations, R1.3million raised doesn’t cut it.

      Not mention the Pretoria stats – putrid for this brand new Ideal Morgue that cannot foot the electricy or rates bill.

      If it were not so pathetic, so tragic, it would be laughable.

      • Hi Per, there are possibly other people who know more about the Juries than me, but what I can tell you is that Bronwyn died about 10 years ago and Neville, about 4 years I think. Their daughter now runs the mission and from what I know, still in the same house in the norht of Joburg. Maybe others would like to contribute to this who knows more than me.

      • Hi Per,
        I have sent you a detailed email on the story of Neville and Bronwen Jory. Love BP

  3. Seems thay are still just fundreasing endlessly forever and ever and ever and to what end?
    Dosent any of the gullible public even suspect that when Joburg north is done thay will find some other building to squeeze money out of public?
    My god think of how many people could be fed in africa with this money…. God this is so sad…

    I am ashemed at the sea org members that have become pathetic con artists scaming money out of hard working people… and this money halping NO ONE…. Betraying the public… Humanty and LRH

    LRH would be have been ..appalled….. greatly dismayed and totally horrifyed at the blindness of the people, the treason of the sea org, RTC AND CMO…
    The so called keepers of the tech…

    Its sad some people still think the sun rises fron COB’s little ass, thay are so brianwashed even if the man gave them literally sh*it and siad: “thease are special space balls from outter space; target 2 and will give you OT powers… Gat3” Thay would pay top dollar, eat it up and even write a sucsses story about it…

    all that remains of the CoS is a lower mocary band of what was once a higher tone dream

    • Those 2nd generation Howarth Sea Org kids have never worked a day in the real world but they are fantastic at organizing events to reg and con people of their hard-earned pay!!

  4. What a money racket this has become. And some people still stick around for this? They’ve lost sight of the reason they ever came into Scientology in this first place.

  5. Throughout the report there are people who’s last name is Hogarth.
    I am guessing that they are relatives of Ryan.
    I am wondering if these Hogarths have been manipulated by the “Church” to disconnect from Ryan.
    (I will hereby call Ryan Hogarth a hero)

  6. Each Orgs report begins with a glowing compliment about the GAT II events. Public were mesmerised. It outstripped everything else. Public were touching the e-meters. It sounds to me like this report was being sent to the mielie cob so it was required that his ego be stroked from the get go.

  7. There are some references above to the “Way to Happiness” campaign.
    For 30 years Barbara Ayash in the US worked at the expense of no family time, no time for anything but to keep selling and keeping the stats up.
    When she could no longer produce she was out of the street, no pension, no retirement, no nothing. She has dementia
    Her daughter tells the story and fills us in more about “Way to Happiness”

    • Very interesting video, Karen. You mentioned how WTH booklets are distributed at all the major disasters or big world events. What must be stressed here is how the IAS always claim THEY did these things and helped at the disasters etc. With every single disaster, even though this is what IAS funds are there for, the public were always regged for the money to support any books, VMs, food, water etc. We were even asked to finance the air tickets to get people there. IAS funds nothing but dm and Co$ fuck ups and court battles. They have yet to figure out that it would be cheaper to do actual charity, deliver what they promise and behave like decent compassionate human beings!

      People who contribute to the IAS are only financing dm’s insane tantrums and refusal to deliver a decent product!

  8. I am underwhelmed…

    Each report starts off with the obligatory fawning to the almighty mielie cob for gracing earth with gat2 and the warehouse8 meter. Vomit. If they think that this arse creeping will win them any brownie points with dm they need to speak to people like Mike Rinder who can tell them exactly what cob would do with those fluffed up, pathetic reports. He thinks anyone below him is an idiot and out to sabotage him and his “life’s work”. He will have a screaming hissy fit about every single report that has come in from the various OTCs around the world.

    This is the reason he has requested the reports – so that he can prove that the OTCs are sitting on their bums and destroying all HIS hard work. He will blame them for the spectacular failure of gat2. More sec-checking will be the order of the day for these ots when they start their 2nd or 3rd time up the bridge to total circularity!

    “There is a huge buzz across the African continent following the release of GAT2, with Joburg Org having more sign-ups in a week than at any time in its history. …. Our newest Ideal Org, Pretoria, has settled into its wonderful new premises and public are streaming into the Org to experience first hand LRH’s legacy and postulates for Africa.”

    I don’t think so somehow… If people were “streaming” in, I think both areas would have reported specific numbers. Nobody has told me that jhb is buzzing and the pta otc report just reeks of apathy and failure. And these are the OTs, the pinacle of achievement in scn, that have to lie and get creative in order to try to appease that evil little man at the top. Waxing lyrical about 12, 13, 8 people attending a fund-raiser – just sad.

    • With the low, low numbers of people attending the fundraisers, eg, Durban a total of R37600 collected from THREE fundraisers; and virtually no PE OTC to speak of, Joburg North still far off from the R21million target, how on earth will the money be raised for the remaining ‘Ideal’ Orgs completed and fully operational in 2014? And the AO in 2015 – which still has to be built?

      I thought the Castle was it. Now I read that it’ll remain a hotel and the actual AO is being built on the grounds. That wasn’t how it was first presented. Is Management still funding this one? Is this the IAS, by the way? Or coffers from the overredging on other building

      “The (fundraising) events became so exciting with themes etc that on the confirmeds the percentages were 75% of those confirmed arrived. In the past it had only been between 25 and 35%.” WHAT ARE THE NUMBERS, THOUGH? 75% Of THE SAME OLD CROWD, WHO WOULDN’T DARE NOT ATTEND, IS EASY TO ACQUIRE. If you see the photographs, it’s the same people all the time. A lot of the attendees are OTC members who are not allowed to not attend. It’s actually compulsory for them to be there.

      So glad I’m out! So, so glad!

  9. Obviously its very easy to be over critical, but the first thing that struck me is that the SA stats are far superior to those of EUS and WUS as disclosed by Mike Rinder. However, I’m not yet sure if that’s a good or bad thing. Certainly, I don’t get a sense the Jhb OTC is dwindling, which is what I had expected to see.

    • The Joburg OTC is run by Albert de Beer to a large degree. Heaven help any member who doesn’t turn up for something or who takes a leave of absense or who doesn’t tow the line. His wife, LC, Sandra de Beer is in there bullying, too. They HAVE to go to every fundraiser and in full costume for which I’m sure each has to pay for their own. They’re there the day before anything, setting up, that is, for weddings, memorials – and probably events although the staff most likely do that.

    • Hey Debbie. Firstly, I saw very little reporting of “stats” as in actual numbers and products achieved. Where numbers were given, they were carefully “couched” in such a way to allude to OTC involvement when in fact the production was probably pulled off by org staff. Secondly, some of the statements made about the Joburg OTC activities were bald-faced and provable lies. I am astounded that they were so brazen when such can be so easily disproven. The entire report was a PR fluff piece filled with unadulterated hyperbole. When one removes the meanderings and intentional distractions about “comfortable seating, 5-star catering, people wanting to touch the new e-meter” and the like, very little is left in the way of actual and effective production. And trust me, the JBG OTC is dwindling – badly. The org is busy scrambling like crazy to get them back “on board”. The comm-ev’s and declares have back-fired in more ways than can be counted and I can tell you right now that every single OTC member is kow-towing in abject terror that they might be next – hence the perceived frenzied activity.

    • Strain the hyperbole and see what’s left in the dregs. Reading tea leaves probably yields up more impressive results.

  10. Thank you so much.for such a revealing report. In a telephone conversation with the into justice chief four years ago…who was doing call-in for the BASICS I stated the following:-)
    ” well then, the basics being such a marvel the class Vorgs must be making at least forty new classed auditors a month and at least one hundred academy students in attendance for any given week and at least fifteen new clears a month RIGHT???. The silence was eloquent”
    Then blame was levelled at the transcribers. Being an excellent proof-reader myself I told the IJC that such a thing was impossible for LRH to overlook. I neglected to ask why in the world would anyone have the IJC doing call in? He was such a decent thetan with a harness that didn’t fit”. Much love to all of you .

  11. Scnafrica – thank you sooo much to you and your team.
    The information that is now being made available is
    No more hidden and held back communication!
    We really appreciated the hard work you have put into
    the blog..XXX

  12. Lacking some specifics: DURBAN – 200 confirms for GAT II Event, BUT how many attended it?
    Several public started SRD – Really? How many exactly?
    JOBURG – Event attended by several hundred…is it 101, 105.. exactly, how many?
    1 Purif Start. only.
    Total hours of OTC per month average 57…about 1,9 hour per day. Hum…
    Recovered 25 Basic Students and are monitoring them very closely….possibly so they don’t blow again from this enforced study that have been asked to do.

    Thanks for the posting.

    • I sincerely doubt the 200 Durban confirms. Their average attendance at a fundraiser is around 12 – 15 people – per their own facebook page. Its quite possible this “200” figure included a load of Div6 public. The statistics are usually 30% arrivals to confirms – and that’s for Div4 public – 10% for Div6 public. So generous estimation is no more than 60 attendees at the New Years event.

  13. “re: related MEST, was moved on Saturday 9th November. 156 Boxes were moved and set up in alphabetical order ready for production by the end of the day and the space secured with the installation of a new lock.”

    So that means there was an OTC member posted as “box-counter I/C” and another posted as “lock-changer I/C”. Up the OTC active member count by 2.

    • Lol! These OTCs were really scratching for news to report, weren’t they? I wonder if there was any reaction from the cob to the pathetic drivel that is this report! And seventeen pages of it. I wonder if he could finish reading it?

      It’s been my observation for many years, that the OTCs are a farce. Everyone may turn up for the meetings but nothing much happens in the way of production. I’m referring particularly to Jbg North. A few years ago, its membersip stood at over 20 but because of mismanagement and the domination of Mike Frankel, in particular, who just cannot have anyone standing up to him and Jean Gonsalves who has never built a group or company up in her life, it quite quickly lost those members, people who were gung-ho, effective and productive. Mike Frankel completely dominated and controlled Jean, at the time, to the detriment of its membership numbers. It’s never recovered from that. And where is Mike Frankel today, he doing things for Jobur Org, no longer to be seen in the Joburg North area, although he lives up the road!

      The Joburg North area boasts the highest number of OTs in South Africa. However, they’re not evident as members of the Joburg North OTC. An outpoint? Or is it?

      When I was a Durban public, I witnessed the same lack of committment of the OTC there. I tried to address it and made myself unpopular in a big way.

      • The politics in the OTC of Joburg North when Marie and Mike Frankel were members was hectic. If one’s ideas were different from theirs, they wouldn’t stand a chance. You kowtowed if you knew what was good for you. Productive members just left and for a long, long time afterwards that OTC boasted no more than 6 members – for a very long time.

  14. What I really loved was both Joburg and Joburg North reporting the same funds raised! Durban and PE raised about enough to handle the water and lights for like one org. These orgs all have to be complete ideal orgs before the AO is opened. And that is in 2015. Right. I honest to goodness do not think another ideal org will ever be opened on this cont. Durban lost a dianetic auditor and gained an ED FDN instead. Priorities, guys!

    • You know, LMR, I think you may just be right! Under the circumstances, the church (OTCs) is just not going to able make it happen. It’s not probable, not going to happen, not all at, not ever! What a thought! Yikes! Lol!

      And here we have the planet waiting for Africa to become the first continent to have all ideals orgs done and dusted and up and running. It’s not going to be.

      We’re in for very interesting times, perhaps even more interesting than the last few months!

  15. Two words for this report, FEAR and DESPERATION! The whole pile of drivel is rank with these two debased emotions. I see once proud wolves, now as lowly mongrels, kicked down to servile appeasement of their crazed master. His evil spotlight is like the eye of Sauron and all they can do is scuttle around as frenzied orcs would. Senseless, directionless and besides themselves with terror! Lies are the very least of their misdeeds..

    We are witnessing the dread Lords death shudders, his captured beasts are quaking as his moans grow louder with every defeat. This is what I see from reading this report. Its a damn fine thing too. Let the church burn! Who could build a new cathedral on top of a church filled with this much rot?

    I like Ryan Hogarths idea far better! At least then the decay and malice could not control everything for the tech would be OMNIPRESENT! Free for all within reason.

    • Sheeple Bane, you have a superb and unique way of describing situations. You are a poet. Once more you’ve nailed it on the head.

      It’s supposed to be the OT Committee, a committe of Operating Thetans, except they’re a confused bunch, in dire straits and not operating at anything much at all. How invalidating for them.

      On this blog, we express our despair and frustration about the koolaiders, the blind, non-confront followers, yet this is what I see:
      1. The attendance numbers of events and fundraisers is down to an all time low.
      2. The fundraising efforts are just not bringing in the ‘just rewards’. Fundraising, I would say, is in a lower condition.
      3. Attendance to courses, except the 80 sign ups that Joburg Org claims to have had. Are they still there?
      4. The fact that the few people salvaged back on to the Basics having to be closely MONITORED! to keep them on course. I know how Mike and Marie Frankel work, it’s heavy ethics if they’re disobeyed. they will NOT be disobeyed! I know first hand.
      5. The fact that the staff numbers are down to an all time low and not resigning their staff contracts.
      6. OTCs have low membership. They’re doing call in and have forgotten that the groups purpose is to get people moving up the Bridge.

      This is showing me that there is TA from church members. More and more are simply NOT obliging, bowing out, fading out but under the radar.

      They may conjure up enough spirit to visit this blog and be able to put a label on what is happening and validate their own personal knowingness about it. They will then see that it is not just them but a whole stack of people our here. Just not complying is a big step, huge actually, after years of servitude. It’s the start of realisations such as, “I can’t do Scientology any more.” They may be excited by this, out of the’ maybe’ but still feel that they’re going against the church and have the idea that they’re in the wrong. Leaving the church is a process. I personally hope they get over this misconception quickly so that they can begin to rejoice in their decision.

      If they’re not doing so already. Perhaps I am wrong and like me, they had this surge of relief and release upon making the decision, “No more for me. I’m outta here!”


    “One of the ways an SP works to stop an activity or to halt an Affluence is to pick out key personnel and spread wild, false and alarming stories about them.”

    “ I well know man’s fixation on trying to make “everybody good”. Which means, really, inactive. The best men I have had in wars routinely have been continually arrested and generally frowned on by “shore patrols,” “military police,” etc. To the body politic a quiet person is the ideal. When the guns begin to go, these quiet ones are all hiding and only the active ones are there to fight. I often wonder what would happen to a state if it did achieve its apparent goal of making one and all inactive little sheep.”

    “The world will never become good because of discipline or oppression of evil. All discipline presupposes that the person being disciplined wants to survive. The truly evil only want to succumb so discipline threat is no answer. The truly evil LOVE pain and suffering and deprivation. So it coerces nothing and improves nothing when you seek to solve all evil with discipline. Only the already decent can be disciplined. It only obliges the evil ones. So all you can do really is to get the evil ones parked off the lines.” ~LRH

    • No it is not you. It is just like North Korea….glossy promo, no LOOKING allowed, no talking allowed, no thinking for oneself. One must not question management or Captain Miscavige or one is kicked out and disconnected so as to not “infect/inform” the group think.
      I noticed after a few years in that the IAS did nothing as promised. I noticed the public were regged to pay for one person to go to a disaster to don the Yellow T-Shirt, which also had to be purchased for $20. so GOLD could fly to the area – take videos and the IAS takes credit for doing something about it.

      It also dawned on me that this Organization is charging HUGE fees by VOLUNTEER’s that don’t get paid. Where does the money go? I asked – I was met with SILENCE. I left!
