Tony Leon's dad attacked

As leader of the opposition, Tony Leon had an opportunity to stop the slide of South Africa into a crime cesspit. Instead he passed his stay as 'leader' meekly and retired having achieved nothing.

You connect the dots.

Retired Judge Ramon Leon, the father of former Democratic Alliance (DA) leader Tony Leon, was attacked at his home in an up market Durban lodge, the Pretoria News reported today.

Several men entered Leon's Caister Lodge flat early yesterday morning, the report said. He was bound and assaulted before his attackers stole valuables.

Police spokesperson, Michael Read, said details of the incident were "sensitive", but confirmed that a case had been opened and that police were investigating. The younger Leon left on a trip abroad a few days ago, but DA caucus leader John Steenhuisen decried the attack.

"We are outraged. If this sort of thing is happening in supposedly secure retirement villages, it shows that the government has lost all control of the crime situation in the country," he told the Pretoria News.

Let us also not forget the part they so proudly played in bringing about this new South Africa.
