As if the xenophobic attacks on foreign nationals were not bad enough, there are already irresponsible murmurs suggesting the rate of crime has gone down in the country since the gruesome violence.

From similar quarters flows more poison to the effect that the streets of Johannesburg are much cleaner.
What utter rubbish!
We cannot help but detect a familiar ring to statements used to provide moral justification for apartheid.
What could be more repugnant: killing people because you dislike them or providing moral justification for mass murder of the innocent?
