    That reward has since been upped to R250 000… when famous people die the world stops – when the same fate befalls us mere mortals all we get is a one day headline.. Sad things afoot in this our Africa

    • If you are lucky enough to get a headline at all. Sometimes you are not even page 16 at the corner worthy

        And today one of them got the bright idea to erect a statue out of melted guns of the man at SAFA house… one comment about that that really got me laughing was “this is a good idea, let’s erect a statue of everyone who has died from violent crime and forget to allocate to funds to things that really matter like AIDS orphans and such”
