South Africa has seen 90 political murders since 2016, almost one per week. And unlike the violence that ravaged the country during apartheid, it’s not rivalry between parties, but members of the ANC killing each other. Municipal councillors are the most common victims – either because they’ve denounced corruption, or because of competition for lucrative posts.

  1. “Another victim of a political system crippled by corruption that has lost control of its own reigns and the support of the people it’s supposed to stand up for.” — a perfect description of the U.S.

  2. The ANC kinda had this type of stuff coming for them since they incurage people to kill people and have had links to terrorism in the past and even have committed atrocities im getting sick and tired of people in south Africa killing each other over stupid things
