Being far away from home and seeing the devastation thats taking place in South Africa is so sad. The country has really slid horribly over the last few years,
When you see civilians taking up arms, like the video below, it feels like a civil war? People see the need to take up arms and do what the Police should be doing, ‘protecting its citazens’
When the military are called out in masses to sort out the looting and chaos, (video Ricardo Koopman below) you wonder whats about to happen next. Violence causes violence.
Words cannot express the sadness, this was my country of birth, and as Thabo Mbeki said, ‘I am an African, I was born here’
Please pray for South Africa.
