Notice how "minister" Ndebele starts stuttering and bulsh*tting when asked the question by a foreign journalist, but when a SA'n asks, we get told to leave the country.

Here is the governments response :

ANC furious about BBC's 'racist' report on SA

By Moshoeshoe Monare

The ANC has accused BBC World of being racist and of stereotyping Africans as genetically inferior after the international news network ran a documentary about crime in South Africa.

In an anonymous article posted on its website, the ANC reacted furiously to the

The ruling party chose to react to the BBC in its online newsletter - ANC Today - under the heading "What the media says".

"Everything we have said communicates the unequivocal message that to avoid unnecessary disappointment and surprise in future, we must teach ourselves to expect that those who hold us in contempt, regardless of what they profess concerning their liberal and progressive credentials, will continue to represent us as violent criminals, or anything else that helps to feed the deeply embedded stereotype that Africans are less than human, or, at least, genetically inferior," the ANC said.


Independent Newspapers sent queries to the BBC's press office in London, but an official warned on Sunday that it was unreasonable to get comment immediately.

The ruling party said the BBC created an impression that crime in South Africa was racially and politically motivated, with blacks attacking whites in a rage of vengeance.

"This unequivocally confirmed that BBC World does not understand the universal and social phenomenon of crime, does not understand South Africa, and had, like the most die-hard racists in our country, convinced itself that crime in our country represents little more than black vengeance against the former white oppressors," the ANC said.

As an African country, the ANC said, South Africa would remain the victim of "entrenched Afro-pessimism born of centuries of contempt for Africans". This serves as an affirming and comfortable device to reassure those who feel superior to us, the Africans, that they are indeed superior."

The ANC also criticised the BBC for including the controversial allegations of criminal involvement against police commissioner Jackie Selebi.

"This conveyed a message of a BBC World that is convinced of the complicity of our government with the most notorious international criminal syndicates. What BBC World wants is that our government should sack our National Commissioner of Police to prove the case it set out to make from the beginning, that our governance system is criminally rotten from top to bottom," the ANC said.

It accused the BBC of perpetuating the notion that Johannesburg and South Africa were the crime capital of the world.

Shame, I find it so pathetic when everytime they are exposed for their inability to do anything, they throw a 'race card'. The BBC, their former ally, is the last broadcaster that can be called racist. They are legendary for their liberal views.

The time has come to admit that Johannesburg and South Africa IS the crime capital of the world and bloody well get off your fat butts and do something about it.

If I look HERE I think the BBC is quite right.
