Johannesburg - MiWay's fake email saga exploded as a story of a fake racist email. It caused untold hurt and anger among all concerned citizens, but more so among South Africa's black citizens.
But it eventually developed into a story of forgiveness, hope and reconciliation. It also led to massive personal growth for me and many of my colleagues.
The easy part of the dilemma was to catch the perpetrator. The harder part was the decision on what steps to take next. The easiest option would have been to simply take legal action. The more challenging option, however, was to consider other alternatives that take the specific circumstances of this matter into account and attempt to break the current negative spiral of racial hatred in the country.
