In 2008, 62 people died in the xenophobic violence in South Africa. 21 of the 62 were South African citizens (source: Mail and guardian).

We need PEACE in Africa, citizens of the world need PEACE, every organisation needs PEACE, and we all need PEACE between our family members, friends and colleagues - but to achieve IT, may not be as easy as you might think. In this book, Detective Makhuvele is talking about FOUR elements of PEACE to thousands of people gathered at Tembisa stadium, on Africa Day. 320 000 young people aged 15-29 years die annually, from alcohol-related causes, resulting in 9% of all deaths in that age group (source World Health Organization). Drug abuse kills about 200,000 people worldwide each year, according to a United Nations report. Read about the life of Neo Moloi, a grade 12 student at Tembisa High school. She has a good story to tell young people who are taking drugs. A United Nations statistical report compiled from government sources showed that more than 250,000 cases of rape or attempted rape were recorded by police annually. The reported data covered 65 countries. The attitude of the police in many countries often discourages victims from reporting rape: one study in Turkey found that 33% of police officers agreed with the assertion that "some women deserve rape" and 66% agreed that "the physical appearance and behaviors of women tempt men to rape. In many parts of the world, rape is very rarely reported, due to the extreme social stigma cast on women who have been raped, or the fear of being disowned by their families, or subjected to violence, including honor killings. Furthermore, in countries where adultery and/or premarital sex are illegal, victims of rape can face prosecution under these laws, if there is not sufficient evidence to prove a rape in the court. Even if they can prove their rape case, evidence during investigation may surface showing that they were not virgins at the time of the rape, which, if they are unmarried, opens the door for prosecution.(source: encyclopedia.com) On average, a woman is raped every four minutes in South Africa.
