Twenty thousand murders a year, 150 000 rapes per year, three thousand farmers murdered, three and a half MILLION crimes per year, rampant corruption, nepotism, now that does not embarrass our gubbermunt.
But the ‘image’ of the country being found out as being ruled by a bunch of half-wit incompetent apes, that “embarrasses” them?
South Africa's foreign minister said on Friday violence that has erupted in the past two weeks in townships is embarrassing for the government and creates a "very bad image" for the country.
Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma pledged her government would deal decisively with the trouble that has killed 42 people and driven 25,000 from their homes in attacks that have now spread to the country's main tourist centre of Cape Town from Johannesburg.
"It's a very embarrassing issue and a very serious issue," she told after meeting Russian ministers in Moscow.
"It's giving us a very bad image and we are serious about stamping it out."
Dlamini-Zuma said property theft was a key motive for the latest violence.
"People are attacking others and taking their property so, it's really linked with criminality and we have to deal with it decisively."
No shit Sherlock. And while you are at it, how about doing your duty and protecting the citizens of the country? Just asking.
