    For those of you who have been waiting or wanting to buy TUNZE equipment I would like to extend my apologies as the latest shipment was highjacked from the forwarding company on route to Durban.

    Was gutted yesterday when I heard the news that my skimmer's going to take another month, as i'm sure a lot of other people are about stock they ordered.

    Sucks big time George. Has the truck even been recovered?

    That is crazy, and the thing is the idots that probably hijacked the shipment have no idea what the things are and will toss them. Welcome to the sh^& hole at the end of Africa

    If the planet was going to get an enima - they would plug the needle into South Africa.

    The senseless crime is out of control, as Ross said - the people probably have no idea what they have in the truck and will just toss it away...

    It is so sad that we have to accept this sort of behaviour as a normal way of life, so sad indeed.

    i dunno about this. If someone were to have stolen whats in the truck knowing it had Tunze equipment, i dont think they might be stupid enough to post here with things in large quantities. Or say a few here and there. It would flag them for sure. And you dont jsut hijack something knowing whats inside without having a plan on where its to go after(unless your an idiot).

    So i think it might have just been a coincidence, that there was tunze stuff in there, but so as to avoid a possible loss they might end up trying to pawn it off somewhere. So LFSs or even to people they know with a tank? There would still be risk. Lets just hope it all gets recovered in good order

    Guys, are you really that blind or just used to all this crime in SA.
    Fly to Europe and check, who has got burglar bars and electric fencing.

    I tell you where to find it. Only the Prisons got both. Not even the police station got bars in front of the windows. In the Netherlands, you can see at night right through every window when the light is on inside. As far as I know, SA is the only country where the normal citizen live behind bars and the criminals are running free and happy around. In broad daylight, they deal with drugs in front of the 7eleven in Parklands and nobody is doing something.

    This thread might get out of control soon, so we might need to tone it down before oom tobes deletes us :p
    But yes, SA rocks, that is a given. We all have our problems, its just that with all the things going on our problems are worse than some..
