THE MUR­DER OF 49-year-old An­glo-Zulu war ex­pert, David Rat­tray, in his home in Fugi­tive’s Drift in KwaZu­luNatal this week, re-ig­nited the al­ready heated de­bate on crime in South Africa.

WHAT THE OTH­ERS SAID

com­men­tary, “Why the out­cry over one white man’s death? I’ll tell you why”, read: “We do not have a few years to waste de­bat­ing ‘per­cep­tions’ and stupid com­par­isons be­tween war be­ing waged on us by crim­i­nals and the war that apartheid’s sur­ro­gates were wag­ing against the peo­ple.”
