Dear Malan, Thank you for a balanced, fair and positive website.
The few times I visited the CESA website, I was always left uncomfortable by the way in which crime in South Africa was portrayed - it smacked of sensationalism and over-exaggeration (if not outright lies). I do not believe that we should hide from the truth, but it should be portrayed in an accurate way. I was therefore very gratified to find your website as well as others such as Real South Africa.
It is now with delicious irony that I can conclude that Mr Watson's intentions have backfired on him - instead of scaring people off, he has inspired people such as yourself to take positive steps in improving our beautiful country.
Actually, I pity Mr Watson (if that is his name!). It seems as if he is living without hope, only cynicism. And that is not life at all.
Thanks for doing your bit to instill hope.
