I live here my wife, my child, my father my mother if I felt that it was unsafe for them I would most definitely blow off my annual 3 month trip to the US... HELLO!
It's this simple the media will always publish the worst possible as we thrive on sensation and or driven news.
That we have issues is no secret, that we have many farm murders is no secret either, we do however have way less school shootings......
It is always good to digest all we read in the media, then look at the bigger picture and from there we can deduct an educated well informed self formulated accurate ASSUMPTION.
I personally believe that publishing such negativity on a site like this has no good influence and living here I am blowing it off.
A publication made by an indepentant body not even based in SA,.....
As someone on the ground in the middle of it I tend to have my reservations.
PS let try asking all the expats! In Aus, NZ and Canada and all over the world how this would help their visa issues if the assylum bill was to be passed in especially Aus on South Africans.....
My best always
Thanks Jaco!! Appreciate your candid reply.
