The Current


Their 'vulnerability they are fears about the future. And indeed south. Africa is a a mystery country. We there are people still have hope that tomorrow might be better but the problem that we. Hey f- when you talk about lawlessness and when you talk about violence it-it's the political elite that keep on indoctrinating south africans with lawlessness. Because if you look at this all all these commissions that we are watching television. The crime that is committed by the politician.
