    Farm murders get great reaction, should we not add township murders to our reaction as well. Waiting for Afriforum and the right wing to castigate me,an Afrikaner, now.

    When a government takes power, they undertake to protect their citizens and ensure their safety. People are terrified to go out after dark, and with just reason. Nobody is safe anywhere anymore. How sad is that?????

      When Government takes power, they undertake to do whatever suites themselves. Where did you see a commitment to serve the people?

    I have heard that smoking kills you, but I never thought it would get you killed this way

    Zim is in no way as violent as SA, more people are murdered in SA per year than all the people killed in both Afghanistan and Iraq combined, the Government is failing in their duty of care, they more interested in lining their own pockets, than protecting its citizens, another tragic death
