    Nelson Mandela tried to bring to bring some harmony. It is the leaders that followed that sing "kill the whites" publicly at their rallies and meetings and why are almost 2000 farmers been murdered the past 15 years in RSA? What about all the horrific murders in the cities too. Why CNN are you not portraying thiese FACTS that is destroying South Africa.
    25 000 letters of people who were victims of crime delivered letters to government – they did not even appear to receive the letters. South Africa is a failed transition to democracy.. Not just whites are being murdered, but righteous blacks, indians, colored too, but whites are being murdered in disproportional rates ito ratio rates very high. Why is the world not realising that South Africa is the most dangerous country when it comes to crime and murder right now. Is this what the world voted for. Nelson Mandelas legacy does not exist.... All false perception... while 2 month old babies are raped and murdered in South African... See crime and genocide in South AFrica on youtube and all the sites trying to voice the truth, but why you are so blind. Why do you not portray the realities that RSA people live behind thick iron bars like prisoners due to secrutiy reasons.
