Fighting crime is part of 2010 strategy

I recently received a chain e-mail - which I will not be forwarding to anybody - which calls on recipients to stop the 2010 World Cup from taking place in South Africa because of crime.

We should rather be looking forward to a World Cup in 2010 in a South Africa which is successfully fighting crime.

Everyone should be working towards finding solutions rather than telling people not to come to South Africa.

If, as the e-mail suggests, the ANC is destroying the country then we should encourage South Africans to vote for a more effective alternative.
