Africa is a wild and wierd place.  There is all sorts of stuff happening there all the time.  Study the history of Southern Africa.  Winston Churchhill and Sir Conan Doyle have both written about the place.  Read up on the Boer War.  
 
The country next door is about to implode...  They are about 15 years a head of RSA.

Africa is a violent risky place that in itself is part of the attraction for some people.  I hope he's OK but at least he's armed and that alone gives him an edge.Indiana%20Jones

Thanks for your concerns, my friends. My family and I are fine. Most of the xenophobic or ethic violence is contained in our mostly black suburbs. Despite the demise of apartheid, the ethnic groups mostly keep to themselves. Even within the black groups. Our Govt has seen fit to allow our neighbours to enter the country without any border controls. They jump the border fences and run like rabbits into the country. Some come through the Kruger National Park and get taken by lion and other wild animals.
Our poorer black communities are taking the brunt of this invasion and have just had enough. Personally I do not blame them.
It would be the same if your Govt just allowed the Mexicans to stream across your Border.
Unfortunately the ANC resorted to terrible atrocities during their fight against apartheid. Those same tactics are now being used against the foreigners.

 I'm sure glad our Government would never allow such a thing to happen.  Stare

 I think the last time I looked alot of mexicans are still coming across . Since most americans finally told the govt. enough is enough ... the current admin. finally started doing something . It took over 12 million illegals here for something to be barely started . Remembering the last outbreak there " SOUTH AFRICA " I was worried about anyone there ... an angry ,crazy mob sometimes does'nt care who they kill .... just look at the riots here .... and those guys down there are alot more prone for violence in a major degree .  Was extremely relieved to hear from you 8shots .... I really was very worried . Be very careful as I know you probably will be ... a crazy mob can't be trusted to take revenge on their adversary only sometimes . I and a few of my military buddies were next to watts back when ... and they brutally bashed  anyone .... even cops and were burning cop cars 1/2 block from us .... as we were trying to catch a train and stupidly walked down towards the noise and action . Loco Have seen it live and " it ain't pretty " ! They get in a crazy rabid frame of mind .

Mexican drugs and workers help stimulate the U.S. economy.

Urimaginaryfrnd, our Govt agrees 100% with you. These foreigners built our country, worked and died in our gold mines, provide labour and stimulate the economy. I wonder WTF the rest of us have been up to all these years. Parking off at the beach I suppose.
And don't forget, these foreigners were their war time buddies who set them up to help liberate South Africa. Now it is payback time. Jump across the border and help yourself, since your own country is a bit stuffed, seeing you were all in South Africa building this country whilst allowing your own to go to the dogs. Very noble of you, my comrades.

You don't mean the ANC???  The party that Nelson and Winnie Mandela belonged to?? Shocked !! Why, in the good ole USA we never heard about any atrocities being perpetrated by those poor, disenfranchised, down-trodden folks!!!!  We only heard that the nasty white government was treating THEM badly!!!  We never heard about car bombings, and necklacing, and hacking someone up with pangas, and kidnapping, and murder, and rape, and car jackings,  etc., etc.  Are you sure you're talking about the SAME COUNTRY???  Why, in the USA, we just learned that there is a country on fire in Africa-- called Zimbabwe-- about six months ago!!!  At least that's what the "experts" on the TV News are telling us!!!  I'll have to look that country up on the map........must have just occurred..........

 ED !!!  Great !!!!  I agree totally ..... thought I was the only one here !  I was totally on the side of Apartheid myself . White folks went in when there was nothing but grass skirts and spears .... built up a thriving robust country with their money... sweat ... and blood ... then good old mandella and his bunch wanted it all back for nothing and did horrible atrocities .

Ed, you are soooooo right. Definately not the ANC. It was the mysterious THIRD FORCE.
 
I think the average South African, me included, was not too unhappy to see the old goverment go. The old story of "absolute powers corrupts absolutely" or something like that. We, as citizens, became rather tired of the politics and the games being played. So the new Goverment under Mandela did bring some fresh air and new possibilities. Unfortunately Mbeki and the rest are now acting like real Africans.
I do not think we mind so much the sharing as them destroying everthing they (as in ANC) have inherited or taken.
