But yet.. we are the ones who exaggerate.... funny how alot of SA people dont even know what is going on in their own country.

minute 4:13,  the woman says that their great great grandparents didnt go to medical doctors..
known fact, the average life expentancy amoungst our previously disadvantage bretheren ws 39.... but now its 69 with hospitals... how on earth do you get to justify muti ?

minute 8:22  300 people are killed for body parts   a year .... imagine that happened in NZ.


8:40 the body parts are taken from a live victem

9:05  a donkey herder found alive,  body butchered for parts, hand genetals, tongue and part of his brain was gone.

10:40 is where i just feel sick .

This guy   to make controversial statements, heck, the whole top gear programme is based on controversy (heavy gas usage, slamming caravanners, slamming americans, slamming australians, destroy nature, etc)! And that is also why people love to hate him.  He thrives on that.  If he was reading this forum, he would laugh his 4$$ off.

Personally I feel he is not worth the fuss - he is an overgrown ignorant little prat.  He reminds me of those guys you got in school that did the stupidest stuff just to get attention.  If everyone just ignore him, then he'll get more desperate until he offends everyone.  The wheel usually turns on these type of people.

May he rest in car pieces...


I agree on this, won't even get worked up over the article. - Nobody takes him serious.  Thank you Ronald for reminding us what a sh..t hole SA is, we have family there and worries about them everyday.

I will send him on a tour through Hillbrow as I have seen that place changes since 1995 till just before we left for NZ and then we'll see what he says - O ja he will be dead so he won't be able to say something  :whistle:

a collegue said he was in SA in 2004.. It was not that bad.

I told him,  if SA was now like it was in 2004.. i would still be in SA.
I also miss "our people" and "our country"... because no matter how long i stay here, i will always sound like a foreigner.
