      @gift.ndlovu - it's called MSM Psy-ops, propaganda and double standards - But for the racially blinkered News24, it is all the same. I actually don’t mind if they do this kind of thing. They just set their own credibility back another notch every time. They NEVER mention race unless the perpetrator is a white person, then the MSM blasts it all over the front page of every newspaper. Now if this was really a white person who raped/killed the black women, you could be sure that the media would have milked this for weeks on end and not just simply called it “Man jailed for rape, murder” but “Black woman killed and raped by racist White man”… The MSM would have turned this whole affair into a racist issue before you could have lisped ”Rêthist”.

    Why is it a white man in the picture but obviously a black man that commited the crime, hence the name

  • misstee.langhein - 2012-12-13 08:34

    Who cares about the man in the picture and the surname of the man who did it being an African surname, it doesnt matter what race he was, what matters is that he raped and killed and will now rot in jail with his new boyfriend called say bring back the death sentance tho, because this man does not deserve to live.
