    Each house in an average middle class suburb has ten foot high walls surrounding their properties, electrified fencing above, motion detectors inside the home and in the garden, steel burglar bars on the windows, panic buttons, a private security patrol on each street, and a private armed security on call. Should there be a home invasion, no one calls the police.

    A fundamental problem is that SA's minister of police has no training as a police officer – not even one day's training – and only has a junior school teaching diploma. Further, the police, prison services and judiciary are notoriously corrupt, with few arrests and convictions for murder.

    South Africa has a lot of issues. It's remarkable that the government has time to call out Israel on the international stage.

    You can thank the US and UK for putting Mandela in power for this. The country was a paradise compared to any country I have visited before Apartheid was abolished.

    We were told what would happen if the "natives" took control.

    Now, it has come to pass, and South Africa is falling apart. A few more decades, and this is what Europe will look like.

Iran and UAE drones used in Sudan war, evidence suggests | BBC News

Published

on



Iran and the United Arab Emirates have been accused of violating a UN arms embargo by supplying drones to the warring sides of the Sudan civil war.

A BBC investigation has documented the Sudanese Army’s use of types of Iranian drones in its war against the Rapid Support Forces (RSF). Evidence has also emerged that the RSF received modified commercial drones from the UAE.

Foreign-made drones prominently changed the course of the war on the ground since their appearance in 2023.

Sudan’s armed forces have been fighting the RSF for the last 14 months.

The BBC has contacted the Sudanese army, Iran’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Qeshm Fars Air to comment on the allegations that Iranian drones are being used in the conflict but has not had a response.
