As I read today about the latest atrocity suffered by Ben Freeth and his family I am yet again appalled at the situation there. I don't know how much more can be said about lawlessness, the lack of action by the government, the police. Perhaps that is futile.
What can be said is that people like Ben Freeth deserve our prayers, deserve support and deserve tough no nonsense action from SADC. Let's hope Jacob Zuma was not pulling any punches last week and that he now does something for African democracy.
And if anyone is making medals get one the size of a frying pan for Ben Freeth.
