    I'm following the situation in SA very carefully, because we have a big machine to install in East London and we had to hold the technical team back.
    The guys over there seem to be pretty calm, but there are a few signs that maybe not everything is really ok.
    Adding to that, East London is not the best run city in the country from what I have always seen...

    Concerning the piles of bodies, I bet there will be none of them.

    I don't have the pessimistic view other people have of South Africa. Still the best country in the world to live in. Except for the politicians.

    The violence was cause by faction politics in the ruling party, which still calls itself a movement. Of course, many other contributing factors, which I view as minor to the political one.

    Be aware that the media portrays the worst scenes as that is what sells. While not knowing the security situation in East London, I wouldn't hesitate to go there to work or on business. But that is just me.

    It's my understanding that a lot of people are leaving South Africa, not necessarily of their own choosing. Confiscated farms, etc.

    As for riots causing super spreader events, the United Statesicon has proven that rioting is fine and safe against Covid. It's going to church that is bad. Must be the heat from the flames of the burning businesses that kill off the airborne virus.

    Funny thing though. Texas Democrat representatives all fled the state to stop a vote that would limit their ability to commit additional fraud in future elections. They chartered a plane, flew to Washington DC, met with senior Democrat leaders there, had some parties, etc and at least six of them now tested positive for Covid and they infected numerous DC functionary's. The VP had to get checked because she was part of the party crowd.

    AFAIK, a lot of people aren't leaving South Africa, except if the emigration process has been completed. The emigration process is lengthy, involved, includes a lot of money and quite challenging due to Covid regulations at your destination. Just leaving immediately means leaving all your money and assets behind and arriving elsewhere with nothing. And then trying to get residence, job, etc. Nope, might happen after Covid.
    AFAIK know no farms have been confiscated, or contemplated to be confiscated. I live here and should know.

    On the other hand, land restitution without compensation is a hotly debated topic, with draft legislation still in process. Possible finalisation end of 2022 but probably 2023.

    I’d come to SA, but right now I have few projects. I’m hoping to get some new stuff running in the next months.
    Also, I have to admit, traveling is no fun these days…
    But I’m looking forward to come and bother your SA guys a bit

    Travelling is still fun but the accompanying regulations, quarantine, etc, isn't.

    Looking forward to being bothered.

    Traveling by car or by motorbike is still great fun, but as soon as you get near an airport or a train station, any long-range public transport, you get involved in such an unpleasant environment.
    Plus, all the trouble you have to go through upon return right now.
    I have two weeks of quarantine if I go out of the EU, with few exceptions.

    "Carrot vs Stick. The carrot is no longer going to work...", by CNN Senior Vice President Sam Feist.

    I love it when liberals lower their mask and show their true colours.

    We had very similar situations here lately.

    The stick was always there, just hidden. Sometimes they inadvertently let it show and then the people who saw it and commented on it were portrayed as (put your choice here). When something is forced on to people, it is wrong. Vac passport, yellow star, ...
