      Police can't be everywhere not to mention all the time.It is unfortunate and very bad that students can not go utilize the library at night if they are accommodated outside the campus. They are not safe walking in groups, not safe in the comfort of their rooms

    Life has become very cheap in our country and when I look around I don't see any sense of urgency to do something to stop this moral decay. Everyday is business as usual. 50 people die in road accidents, its business as usual. Rapes and murders, its business as usual. Corruption scandals, its business as usual. The country just doesn't get alarmed into any form of action.

      When will this madness finally come to an end!? No more soul, no more honor, no more integrity, honesty, respect and goodness left in society! Freedom... to do what? get killed, raped, abused, cheated and defrauded. Condolences to the family, a mother is mourning the loss of her child - so much hurt, pain and sadness but yet the perpetrators will feel and live the victory to continue with the next victim tomorrow and every day thereafter!

    I assume this was a student @ university of Limpopo... The surrounding areas there are not safe, criminal elements know for a fact that there are a lot of university students that side, with most of them having to rely on campus facilities to study because their rooms are not equipped for studying... The university and police need to work together in this mater!

    until now i had always assumed the chest and hand were part of the body.

    And you South Africans are the most vocal against the death penalty whilist in the whole of Southern Africa, the only country with the highest murder rate for senseless issues is SA. Your constitution so loves your murderers

    If law abiding citizen’s lives are cheap and this kid trying to make something of himself, his life is cheap then why do this countries laws (and in effect the ANC) consider criminals lives so precious?

  • tshepo.ally - 2012-04-30 20:58

    it's only getting worse. this is the world we live in, unfortunately. anyway i am still pro- the re-introduction of the death sentence. stats show that crime has increased significantly since the abolition of the death sentence. the judicial system is dysfunctional and criminals have seen that, thus they are taking advantage. but anyway...yea.
