Agree we have a beautiful country, but not because of our government or criminals.That's not quite fair War, we are also two time rugby world champs. We have some of the most beautiful beahes in the world. We have great dive spots, rated by National Geographic as some of the best in the world. We have a good cricket team. Our country hasn't been involoved in a war for 60 years. I can go on forever.
But, it's true, crime is one of the highest in the world. Which makes me consider the most important factor, the safety of my children.
Concerning the sport, I think we all make way to much about our limited success. Check smaller countries (population-wise) like OZ or NZ have way more sporting achievements than RSA.
When it comes to being world champs of murder, rape, AIDS, racism and corruption, no one can touch us.
And the worst thing of all is we have no leadership in this country that will even admit that these are problems, let alone address them
