It has one of the highest murder rates in the world, kidnapping and violent crime is rife too. As is rape and HIV infection.
Woden: Nearly all the African former colonies of European countries have gone that way but they weren't the Europeans' to keep. Tribal conflicts (e.g. the Tutsi-Hutu conflict) and endemic corruption are possible reasons. At least South Africa is a parliamentary democracy rather than an effective dictatorship.
Because you are projecting your standards onto South Africa. If self determination is what South Africa wanted, and it is, then they have the South Africa they want.
The main problem is that they belief they are doing the right things in the right way.
Zimbabwe and South Africa was better with white Leaders
today Zimbabwe Bankrupt and ejected from the Commonwealth of Nations
South Africa did ok under Mandella today 29 % unemployed and Rising because no one trusts either
government so no investments
as soon as they talk about taking farms from white South African Nationals you turn people away
The Black revolutionary fighters were funded and organised by trouble-making foreigners and local crime gangs. They are a genie that will not go back in its box, not least because of continuing corruption at the highest level and failure to redistribute land and wealth as promised. Their tried and failed solution? Seize the white-held farms like they did in neighbouring Zimbabwe and snuggle up to China. Good luck with that working out to the benefit of the poor people.
In reality, the whole world can be called a dump. Murder, kidnapping and violent crime, rape, HIV infection and other diseases are not exclusive to SA. . The Bible clearly identifies the primary cause of human suffering. It states: “The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked one.” (1 John 5:19) That “wicked one” is Satan the Devil, a powerful spirit creature who was originally an angel of God but “did not stand fast in the truth.” (John 8:44) Other spirit creatures joined Satan and rebelled against God in order to pursue selfish desires, thus making themselves demons. (Genesis 6:1-5) Ever since their rebellion, Satan and his demons have exerted a powerful and cruel influence over this world’s affairs. This has been particularly so in our time. Now, the Devil has great anger and “is misleading the entire inhabited earth,” which has resulted in “woe for the earth.” (Revelation 12:9, 12) Indeed, Satan is a brutal dictator. He gets perverse satisfaction from human suffering.
Possibly because he has socialist values.
