Minutes after telling a CNN journalist that crime in South Africa was on the decline, national Police Commissioner Jackie Selebi told local reporters he couldn’t give them any information on the country’s crime statistics.
He told a CNN journalist who had asked him about the recent high level of crime in South Africa: “There’s been a percentage decrease.”
What is the reason behind the government’s “head in the sand” attitude? They cannot be that stupid! Perhaps I’m giving them too much credit.
