It's civil war just north of Pretoria
Between the dusty business district of Bon Accord and the continually spread.ing townships of Hammanskraal and Soshanguve, farmers and plot-holders are struggling to hold on to their land, while shack dwellers and other oppor.tunists try to take possession of them.

And what a curious editorial response, playing the man (on both sides) and ignoring the ball. Time to reconsider my subscription.

Editor's Note
Publishing the truth always entails some risk.

Is this supposed to be journalism? Such a clearly slanted, and racially peppered opinion piece? It is very disappointing that the editor did not insist at least a modicum of balance, for something that is presented as an article. Why did he not send the author across to the other side and elicit the views of the "homeless", who are presented as a hostile and invasive entity? This belongs among the reader's letters, if even that. Shoddy work, Noseweek.

Editor's Note
All snug piety in Göttingen, Germany then? Come on! Wessel Ebersohn is a widely published author of the highest integrity. Noseweek is honoured to publish his work. The article you speak of is a fair reflection of a tragic situation.

Can we get this onto Carte Blanche?
