A white woman has been jailed in South Africa for yelling racist abuse at a black police officer, in a case that laid bare attitudes that endure more than two decades after the end of apartheid.
In a ruling that lawyers believed to be the first prison term imposed in South Africa for verbal racial abuse, estate agent Vicki Momberg was sentenced to three years, with one year suspended, for directing offensive slurs at the officer. Previously people convicted of the same crime have been fined.-The Guardian

#SouthAfrica A massive mob of 500 people protesting in Hermanus for land and houses turned violent and started killing white people, tying the manager of the Woolworth up and beat him to death, and killed 2 white nurses, and apparently they said they're going to kill foreigners.

Thank you so much.
Unfortunately my emotions are so messed up now, I can't keep sharing them. My therapist advised me this morning to take a break from it and process everything

South Africa’s central bank cut interest rates to their lowest in two years, bolstering Africa’s most industrialised economy amid signs of confidence returning under Cyril Ramaphosa, the newly elected reformist president.-Financial Times
“The Global Financial Crisis a decade back almost brought the world’s economy to a grinding halt,” he said. “We only really experienced the crisis as an ‘observer’ and were shielded to a large extent from the fallout.
“Make no mistake, if the world’s economy had collapsed (and this was a real possibility without decisive action), South Africa would have been sucked in,” he said.-BusinessTech.za
