South Africa gone down the Zimbabwe route.

Interesting article in Spiked by Moses Dube, who has produced some questionable reports in the past, but this one points to the Immigrant Problem in SA, particularly of Nigerians, who from my small experience really are a bloody problem: The ugly truth about the new South Africa
My direct experience of Nigerians [in Nigeria] was not wholly positive, it has to be said. Especially about the ones that were shooting at our boaty thing. Whilst we were on it.

Send African-loving Prince harry, his missus and the sprog.
That would really steal the thunder, wouldn't it?
Going to SA with your wife and child, to probably stay at a luxury resort, is not proving the best idea at the moment, even if you do have a CPT available.

'A pregnant woman has been bludgeoned to death and her husband savagely stabbed in front of their toddler while on a family holiday at a luxury resort in South Africa.

'Karen Turner, 31, was three months pregnant and sleeping next to her husband Matthew, 33, and their 23-month-old son Hayden, when all hell broke loose at the Hluleka Nature Reserve, in the Eastern Cape province of the country. Two men armed with knives reportedly broke into the self-contained lodge on the beach and launched a frenzied attack, 400km southwest of Durban, about 3am on Tuesday.'

Liberals of the world rejoyce !
You, and you alone, have wrought this wonderful redistribution of wealth !

Well this is one thing we can blame whitey for. If they had not built SA in the way they did then, in my opinion, it is unlikely that Nigerians (or any other Africans for that matter) would ever have been attracted to the place.

I used to watch as Zimbabweans swam and trudged over the (croc, and at that time hippo-infested) Limpopo, at night, at one of the safer crossing points. This was the place (22°09'37.9"S 29°48'01.1"E if you're interested) where a white farmer was reported to have driven his large range of farm equipment over to SA before my time there.
The fence on the SA side of the river was electrified (or at least the signs on it said so) and was well constructed. The sort of action above takes commitment to travel. I, on the other hand, left using the official Beitbridge border crossing, but I had a UNDP stamp in my passport which told the officials to leave me alone.

The article still seeks to apportion blame to the past for the current situation. The real problem is govt exclusion of groups inside their own country, while lauding their own and enforcing quotas and AA in order to enhance their feeling of being exceptional. This mindset of being special and entitled and more deserving than other sectors of SA society has now expanded to exclude all outsiders, leading to what you see happening in SA today.

IMO, the comments are more telling than the article, reflecting the reality far better than the attempt to blame it all on the past. Rhodesia, and later SA on its own were islands of advancement in the sea of African entropy at the time, and many were willing to walk through minefields to get there in order to be 'oppressed', finding it preferable to their own little slice of African socialist Utopia.

I'm waiting for someone to see that the first paragraph describes a system they purport to hate.

Triple razor wire, electrified line on the Seffrican side, supposed landmine field further back. As far as I remember, there were no live landmines, and the electrickery was never connected because the Seffricans felt sorry for the Zim's trying to cross.

On the other side of Beit Bridge was the aloe fencing, called the The Kaftan Line.. About 100m wide for about 35 km, there were aloes planted close together. Once fully grown, it was supposed to be able to stop any armoured (including main battle tanks) incursion. Only problem was, the baboons loved to eat the young aloes...

SWMBO's uncle had a farm right on the border, part of which was the old M(T) D shaft area which became an army camp, we used to go watch for illegals and take them to the Police for processing.

Slight drift; I placed three coils of razorwire next to our old fence (razor coil on top, electrified) around the working parts of the mine processing plant in Zim. Human could not go through or over it without a great deal of preparation, but troops of baboons did both without losing any speed whatsoever. In Tanzania, I employed a large number of Maasai in replanting, coppicing and laying thornbrush around the most vulnerable point on the licence; a very unpleasant task for which they got a crate of Safari beer at the end of the working day. It seemed to keep the leopards out, but not the big broom-rats.
 
SA name for crystal meth. It's tik, without the c.
 
Un-loaded?? I think you mean loaded, and it was some sort of official piece of evidence so a court / police official messed up, considerably.

That can't be right, they're the best police money can buy.
