Black man who is paranoid about crime

"Nobody can prove that the majority of the country's 40 million to 50 million citizens think crime is spinning out of control," President Thabo Mbeki told Tim Modise on TV last week.

"Nobody can prove that the majority of the country's 40 million to 50 million citizens think crime is spinning out of control," President Thabo Mbeki told Tim Modise on TV last week.

Mbeki is either ignorant or just plain stupid. He believes that rampant crime is exaggerated or is media sensation. He should walk in Hillbrow without his bodyguards for just a day and he will change his attitude.

I lived in Hillbrow from 2000 to 2004 and witnessed horrible crimes. I saw ever more people falling victims to violent crimes. I would still be living there, but left because of crime.

I'm a black man and am paranoid because criminals have taken control of our streets.
