Fair enough, no one is blaming 'one person', but I really hope this shakes the system in SA.

As a foreign security team they protect their own VIPs, that's how it's supposed to work. That's how we do it. They are less interested (or have less effect on) the general security plan but rather how to keep their targets safe.

[QUOTE=Cheetah772;2703228]It turns out the fake interpreter was accused of kidnapping and murder in 2003. In fact, he has a long list of being charged with various crimes. He was acquitted of some charges but others were mysteriously dropped.

You do know what the word acquitted means right. He was never found guilty of any thing other than theft in the early 1990s. So has I said befor it would not have facted in to a back round check sence they oy care about what you have been convicted for. Not what you have been charged for. So why should any bodies heads roll? SA judesry is very independed.

So 20 years after indpendents americans where not itching to shoot red coats in canda?

Kind of disproves he is a imposter. Just very very very bad at his job

It was a response to "lot of things lack in that screwed up country", was pointing out that we no more screwed up than every body else. I did not feel the need to do it israel and the countries of other countrubtors to this thread since they never attacked my country but focused on the event.

When apartheid ended I thought to myself: this is going to be messy, ugly, and push South Africa into basket case status. I thought that the wounds would be too raw and painful to be put aside, and that the country was going to have to be bathed in blood before it could begin to heal. I figured it would be like Zimbabwe but with a serious civil war.

I was wrong, and happily so. It has a lot of problems still to be fixed, and those solutions won't happen overnight - there is simply too much to digest in a generation or two, but what has happened so far has exceed the hopes of even the most optimistic. If a charlatan sign reader was the worst thing that happened during the event then I'd say it was small beer. Kudos for handling it all with only minor hitches.

andrewza, as a soldier, how was Mandela viewed from the military end of the country? I have no clue of the SANDF's relation with Mandela whilst he was in power.
