Leopard, when I read the articles you posted, especially the one about the fire, in combination with the other articles that you have posted previously, the word that comes to me for what SA is descending into is anarchy. I can’t speak for what the media in Europe, Australian, Canada or elsewhere covers concerning SA, but there is virtually no coverage of any of this in the US. Back in the apartheid days SA was always in the news here because of the political and economic pressure being put on SA. Nelson Mandela always got lots of coverage too, and when he died it was wall to wall coverage. When it comes to covering the reality of day to day life in SA however there is almost total silence. Thank you for helping me to understand what the situation is.
