South Africa: Politics Crime Commerce and Lies

There are some citizens of South Africa who do get help on a regular basis. Chinese “businessmen” and their families get preferential treatment. Law enforcement officials are required to respond to crimes against the Chinese within 25 minutes. There must also be a resolution before 48 hours has gone by. The media, apart from the initial airing of the crime itself, is not allowed to do follow-on stories about the incident.
South Africa uses politics to hide crime and promote lies. The emphasis on commerce in a country where it seems everything is for sale means that money buys many things. Silence, cooperation, and journalism that reports just what they are told to are all either bought or coerced. Before Nelson Mandela died, the country trembled on the edge of a precipice. Now that the denizens of that country have been “officially” told that their legend is dead, grief has taken over and, if the predictions are true, apocalyptic chaos will ensue. Just do not wait to read or hear about if from the South African media.
The media has a fine line to walk apart from the restrictions placed upon them about reporting Chinese crime incidents; News in South Africa is truthful because it is not allowed to be. The mandate for media is to report what the government want them to report. Journalists are told not to upset the populace, but, to help keep them calm and under control. There is no “freedom” of the press in South Africa.
