Mr President @CyrilRamaphosa I'm sure you are well aware of the crisis in South Africa. Our sisters, mothers, daughters, friends & children ARE NOT SAFE!
Not at home, not at work, not in public, not in schools… NO WHERE!

Darkness is descending in South Africa.
Widespread looting @SAPoliceService nowhere to be seen.
A once great nation – now an utterly lawless bandit country.
