Mbeki says there is no crime. The same way he said HIV does not cause AIDS.

As I am a student, I don't have much time, apart from my holidays, to do research and write articles. I would appreciate if volunteers e.g. blog owners, freelance journalists or criminologists would allow me to place their articles (credit will be given to the author). Articles just need to be in line with the mission of the website (see About). Contact me

The book ends with some suggestions of what needs to be done to deal with this scourge. Buy
