Here here!

Please read this blog from John Minto: "Open Letter to the President of South Africa" Thanks Gavin for the link...

It is hard not to become cynical about the last decade of so called transformation. I have just finished reading Ismael Beah's "Long Way Gone", a memoir of his stolen childhood as a boy soldier in Sierra Leone. While the accuracy of some of the chronology is disputed, I think it is still worth a read and reminded me of the resilience of ordinary people’s vulnerability – something wealth and power ignore.
