Just an e-mail circulating on the situation in SA, this is just the tip of the iceberg. :sad:


TWENTY ONE THOUSAND (21 000) PEOPLE MURDERED IN SOUTH AFRICA DURING 2005

More people are murdered daily in the" Post Freedom Struggle" "Peaceful", "Democratic", South Africa than any period during the so-called "Freedom Struggle"and/or the 17 years of international boycotts and sanctions against South Africa

21,000 people were murdered in South Africa last year, and rest of the world turns a blind eye!

An 8 month-old baby girl was raped to death by 5 men in Cape Town, South Africa, as they thought it would "cure their Aids".

A 24 year-old pregnant woman was repeatedly raped in her home in Birch Acres, Kempton Park, South Africa on Monday, January 08, 01.

A five-month pregnant woman, her husband and their five-year-old daughter were relaxing at home when four unknown men entered the house. The husband (32) was tied up and held at gunpoint while the suspects raped his wife in the dining room. The suspects then ransacked the house and took electrical appliances, household goods and clothing valued at about R20000.

No arrests have been made. The gruesome list goes on and on . . .

For once, this is a worthwhile message to pass on

For my friend Jeremy Sutton who was murdered, leaving his 8-month pregnant wife, Trish, behind - and for all others who have been touched by crime.

If Gary Teichmann can sign this so can all of us.

One Sunday Times front-page headlines stated:

STOP THIS HORROR
Toddler simonized to death. 2-year-old girl simonized so brutally, her wounds shocked doctors. Her anus and rectum were so severely injured that medical staff could literally see 3cm inside her body. The rapist walks free after police corrupted her file.

It's sad nonetheless, the same could be said for a lot of places but the reality of this happening to babies, women and families in general is devastating!!

Here is some more input:

MURDER IN SOUTH AFRICA
A shocking new report by Christian Action Network presents evidence that South Africa's murder statistics are even worse than official statistics have so far admitted.

For every 1000 crimes committed in South Africa, only 430 criminals are arrested. Of these, only 77 are convicted and barely 8 of these are sentenced to two or more years of imprisonment. It is also calculated that South African convicts have a 94% recidivism rate (that is, 94% of all persons released after serving a sentence immediately become involved in crime again).

Serious Under Reporting
The 22-page Christian Action Network Murder in South Africa Report by Robert McCafferty is based on original source documents, government archives, the Central Statistics Service, Interpol, the South African Medical Research Council statistics, and many other sources. The Report casts serious doubt on the South African government's claim that the murder rate has been decreasing.

Victims' surveys have consistently uncovered between 60% and 70% more crime than reported by official sources. Upwards of 50% of crime in many serious categories goes unreported.

Statistical Discrepancies
While police crime statistics show that there were 21 683 murders in the year 2000, the Medical Research Council puts the figure at 32 482.

Interpol claims even higher numbers of murders in South Africa - up to 54 298 in one year. Interpol's figures are approximately double the numbers of "murders known to the police" in South Africa. According to Interpol, South Africa has the highest recorded per capita murder rate, second only to Colombia.

Failure of Criminal Justice System
Only half of all murder cases are sent to court, and only 4007 of these resulted in a guilty verdict.

Alcohol Abuse
Alcohol abuse is also shown to go hand in hand with South Africa's culture of violence: "according to the National Injury Mortality Surveillance System, 56% of homicide victims sampled for blood alcohol levels tested positive."

The Most Murderous Societies
The Nedcore Project has concluded that: "South Africa and Southern Africa are probably the most murderous societies on earth, even with the probable under reporting." The Nedcore Project claims the results of their surveys "underscore the fact that crime has become South Africa's pre-eminent sociological problem. It now eclipses even unemployment in concerns of all South Africans."

Worse Than War
The UCA Report on Murder in South Africa reveals that according to the official statistics, in the 44 years from 1950 to 1993, there was an average of 7036 murders per year. This covered the turbulent strife of the apartheid years of warfare, conflict, terrorism, riots and repression.

However, in the first eight years (of peace) of the new democratic dispensation, under the ANC, an average of 24 206 murders were committed each year - officially!. However, if the Interpol statistics are accepted, then the murder rate in South Africa during the ANC years has averaged 47 882 per year.

When The Death Penalty Deterrent Is Removed
The report notes that the sharp exponential increase of violent crime, particularly murder, in South Africa, also coincides with the suspension of the death penalty in 1989 and its abolition in 1996.

Disarming The Potential Victims
With the massive increase in organised crime, and violent crime in South Africa, it is all the more incomprehensible that the government should be removing security barriers from crime afflicted suburbs and turning their attention towards disarming the potential victims through more rigid firearms control laws, rather than re-instating the death penalty as a deterrent for violent crime.

It is also an undeniable fact that criminals prefer unarmed victims.

"When the sentence for a crime is not quickly carried out, the hearts of the people are filled with schemes to do wrong." Ecclesiastes 8:11

The full report, Murder in South Africa: A Comparison of Past and Present by Robert McCafferty, is available from Christian Action Network.


The problem is probably twice as bad as stated in the original article.

Crime in general is rampant, but I read an article some time ago about car theft. The guys would get some voodoo blessing that they believed made them nvulnerable to bullets and police shoot to kill. Anyone with money has armed bodyguards and security up the wazoo.

Quoting the Christian Action Network as "real" news? Pah-lease...you don't think they have an agenda do you???:rolleyes:

Why aren't you mentioning the 4 million, yes 4 million, people that have died during the Civil War in Congo. Africa in general is probably the most f-ed up place in the world right now. Butchery of people and civil war in Liberia, Uganda, Sudan, Angola, Sierra Leon, South Africa, not to mention Genocide in Rawanda......the whole place is a war zone. Nobody gives a shit until white people start dying in South Africa though.....:dontknow:

I never heard about this on the news. the only thing they report is hunger, but nothing like this. its sick and sad.
I don't mean this as a knock, but you cannot depend on the news to tell you what is really going on in the world. Plenty of stuff online and in bookstores about the history of war and violence in Africa.
