The author reflects on the statement given by President Thabo Mbeki that crime in South Africa was not as bad as people believed. The author contends that Mbeki denies the country's worsening crime situation because he and his colleagues are simply out of touch with the conditions that normal people face. In addition, he also comments on the attempt of the Africa Muslim party to wreck the ruling coalition in Cape Town.
