New year of death in South Africa

18 January 2012, 11:41

We all celebrated the start of 2012, we made our resolutions and we prayed for a better year in general for all South Africans.  A couple of weeks down the line however, things remain the same.

While the entire country has been captivated by the media's excessive coverage of the "Modimolle Monster" case, the usual murder, mutilation, rape and barbaric behaviour has continued.  Here is the start of the new year in South Africa:

This is just a fraction (between 1 - 2%) of what occurs on a daily basis.  Will there ever be any action by those who spends billions on centenaries, Land Rovers, Moet, 5 Star accomodation and other fruitless & wasteful expenditure?
