What Do You Think Of South Africa?

Hey,

SA has really proven that she is a country flowing with milk and honey:

Sound educational system

Basic amenities

And others

At least that's evident from their successful hosting of world cup.

What do you think about traveling to and living in SA.

Your opinion will help please!

Saying Nigerians and other foreign nationals have it tough in Mzansi is understandable but for BLACKSPADE to say we did window dressing when it come to development in South Africa is a lie,a 419 lie.

Do you know that in South Africa townships are some of the biggest tourist attractions?.Have you been to Soweto?tell me the level of poverty there,the biggest shoping mall in Africa is in Soweto,the biggest Stadium in Africa is in Soweto,the biggest Hospital in Africa and Southern hermisphere is in Soweto.You knows nothing omo!shine your eyes.

And beside listening to a group of Nigerians talking about developments is funny,its a joke,cause they don't know what a development mean.Your five year old kids sell water in the streets for survival and you're here talking about poverty in South Africa.

You have accepted failure in your country,but you're all quick to point out few things that are not working out in someones country.You talk about crime in Southy,I can easily give you a police and independent crime stats any time anyday,that is how developed we are.I could do the same with AIDS/HIV stats.But can you do the same in your country?Since there are no reliable and independent stats what make you think crime in south is high,what make you think AIDS infections in Nigeria is low?You see you know nothing my omo.Southy is no match for Naija.

All well said,

If all these can be said about SA, what then can a young guy who have already secured a job there and is set to travel there in 3 weeks be advised?

I do not live in SA but have frequented the country on many occasions on assignments. In fact I just came back about two days ago from the World cup.

South Africa is a beautiful country with many great things about it. However because of my knowledge and experience, especially with many Nigerians that reside there, I like to warn potential immigrants who don't really understand the full picture of what happens within those borders.

Like I mentioned earlier if you are going to school or are investing in the country you will not come across the bad side of the country but if you are a lay Naija person who is looking for greener pastures you will encounter many a difficulty.

Naija's name has been spoilt in SA and is presently unrepairable. HT enumer of village boys who trooped that country in the early and late 90's are the sole representatives of the whole image of Nigerians. It is sad but nonetheless a reality.

Again you are better off in a western society where you are not in danger of being mobbed,

Morpheus24, very well said, if i may ask, do you stay here in SA? Apart from the problem of unemployment, the crime here is just too much, is just easy as ABC to get killed here, yes there educational system and other basic amenities can never be compare to Nigeria, but Guy think nicely before you make any move here, life here is Hardcore!!!! The only good thing about SA is the fact that is easy going to any EU countries from here!!!!!

1. Crime rate is high amongst blacks

2. High unemployment. it is difficult for another African to find work

3. Resentment by the natives especially against African immigrants who they view as competition on their newly acquired homeland

If you are going to school or are coming into the country with money already then you are good but as far as hustling is concerned, stay away from SA. You are better off in a western country,
