Thanks for the welcome guys.
Congrats to Selco and Jay for getting the forum started, I wish you guys all the best.
As you may have read from Leopards post, South Africa can be pretty rough.
Without trying to be alarmist, I think the term “low-intensity civil war” would be a good description HOWEVER before cancel your visit to our shores simply based on what one reads/see’s on the regular media, I would encourage you to see past the negativity. (If you really are interested in South Africa read James Michner’s book “The Covenant” a great story and good lesson in history)
The biggest problem IMO is mindset: If you decide to live in cloud cuckoo land and see no reason to take sensible precautions etc then, yes you will become a victim. This though is applicable to any place in the world.
