On the 24th of May 2006 at 02h15 my family and I were awoken by the sounds of intruders ransacking my house near Magaliesburg. A shootout ensued and approx 17 shots were fired between myself and the robbers. The intruders then fled; they dont like it very much when you shoot back!! And through the grace of God we were physically unharmed. Psycologically it wiil still take a long time to heal the wounds.
It would be totally irresponsible to expose tens of thousands of soccer mad tourists to this kind of risk. Any responsable government will either step in to rectify the situation or transfer the event to a different country!!
