for the love of Alex


SA is burning up OK not literally but the xenophobic attacks are that bit crazy AND SOME. Over the weekend they were in the CBD and my school isn’t too far from there. They were also burning things on a road that I pass frequently enough to know it off head. Stats show that the guys they burnt are locals which causes many to say that they are criminal attacks hiding under the guise of xenophobia! The foreigners in the Townships are also freaking out as you would imagine and have gone to hide in the police stations. Suddenly I got so freaked out and decided to take only the bus that’s multiracial unlike the matatus where a black foreigner stand out like pus on a wound!

Alex in the title is the abbreviated form of Township here called Alexandra…

Exams coming up so I will be all over the place Kindly think of a sister in your prayers.

  1. woie! if you want it to be, its about you imagine- tihiii! But thanks for the advice- il be keeping it all.

  2. And here i thought you were talking about Alex the person. First thoughts were of all the people i know down there. Which area of SA do they live, are they on the run, were they safe wherever they are … The images were shocking and at some point i couldn’t believe this was happening and in SA. One thing one should never forget is that home is second to none. Keep safe and steer clear of all the trouble spots.
