    They had to post this the day before we are leaving. Most of our tours are guided so hopefully we won’t be going into questionable areas. We don’t plan tp go outside the tourist areas now.

    I wouldn’t worry too much, State Dept. Travel Advisory lists it as threat level yellow, “Excercise Increased Caution”. Other countries in this category include, the UK, almost all of WESTERN Europe, and China. You’ll probably be safer there than you would be if you stumbled into the wrong part of Chicago. Enjoy yourself.

    US President Donald Trump has said he asked Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to study South African "land and farm seizures" and "killing of farmers",

    Mr Ramaphosa announced on August 1 that the ruling African National Congress (ANC) plans to change the constitution to allow the expropriation of land without compensation, as white people still own most of South Africa's land



    https://www.express.co.uk/news/world...ic-allianceShe was outspoken about farm murders. In her last Facebook post, she shared a link claiming that ten farm attacks, including one murder, had been reported in four days.

    Police spokesman Col Moatshe said a 40-year-old man had been arrested.

    He added: “The suspect will appear before the Louis Trichardt Magistrate Court soon.”

    Attacks against South Africa’s white farmers are on the rise with some victims being tortured with electric drills, blowtorches and bleach, according to reports.

    Research by Afriforum, a group which champions the rights of the country’s Afrikaner minority, released earlier this year said assaults on the farms shot up 25 percent last year.

    If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, give it Narcan.
