Taxi drivers don't mess around. Here's video footage somebody sent me of a driver getting revenge on somebody who jaywalked in front of him, by driving into him, then getting out of his taxi & kicking him. I believe the footage is from Bloemfontein, but let me know if I'm wrong.

The Purple shall rule! Message left on our Mango flights page: "I was a passenger on a flight from Cape to Lanseria on the 24th March. Before liftoff I noticed that my seat was broken & could not stay in an upright position. Told flight attendent white lady didnt show any interest way on, did not even check the seat herself. I decided to move to the next seat. Before getting off the plane I ask her to report the incident. Ya, still waiting!" Moira

The Bottom Line: Chances are that in 30 years time South Africa still wont be getting its fair share of the world's decent jobs: "Last year's Annual National Assessments saw 69% of grade 3 pupils not achieve, or only partially achieve, the required level of literacy for that grade. SA performed at or near the bottom of virtually every global & regional ranking of literacy in which it participated."
