The reasons for the flight are clear. The overriding one being of course the staggering levels of crime and the gratuitous violence associated with so much of it. They also acknowledge - the the first time for a MSM outlet in my experience – that much of this black on white violence is racially-motivated.

In February, Health Minister Barbara Hogan said South Africa's doctors are "constantly being poached" by places like Canada, Australia and the United States—among the most popular destinations for wealthy white émigrés. Banks and investment companies are forced to look for talent overseas, and Eskom, the disgraced national electricity provider, has recently begun scrambling to attract electrical engineers back home, but with little success.
