    There is an easy solution. Open your practice out of Soweto. Some people don't appreciate high standards in their towns. Let them drive out to you when they are ill. To rob a surgery is like attacking an ambulance or hospital, which they also do!

      True that they don't appreciate your seven years of struggle with your 900 page book to bring them good health in soweto rather go to the suburbs but also need to have serious network incase u did pass one pass all lol... But for real go to the northern suburbs

    Wonderful, so when the surgeries can not deliver they can have a protest again!
