20 years after “Cry Freedom”, the world must now Cry for Justice in South Africa. The suspicious death of Steve Biko while detained by police, raised the consciousness of the world to the inhumane and brutal aspects of Apartheid. The release of the movie in 1987, helped the world call for the dismantling of Apartheid and marked the turning point of the fight for freedom in South Africa's history. 20 years later Lucky Dube’s slaying should draw attention to menacing crimes in the nation. From the different accounts of Dube’s death, it appears that the individuals were on a mission to assassinate him than the carjacking and hijacking reasons in circulation. People around the world must pressure the South African government to find his killers and bring them to justice. Unless the Mbeki’s regime can implement measure to considerably reduce the high crime rate in South Africa within 12 months, the international community must think about boycotting the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Nigeria lost the right to host the world’s beauty pageant after the story of Amina made headlines around the world. A government that cannot guarantee the safety and security of ordinary citizens cannot possibly look after the safety and security of thousands of people from around the world. It is an international risk that must concern the world leaders. Mbeki has the tendency to downplay the significance of crucial issues. The world needs tangible answers and not a brush off from his administration in addressing safety and security concerns especially in light of the 2010 World Cup.
car hijacking is continuing sort of activity which SA is not giving a proper sentence because from Lucky Dube's killer all were supposed to learn a lesson. how many people do you think the same guy killed before he shot Lucky Dube?
