Letter From Africa

Sharon Lafraniere writes in the New York Times on President Mbeki, the race card and rape. I've never heard about this story, but then I tend not to keep track of every little spat. Interesting to see what the NY Times finds news worthy.

Update: Seems this little spat occured at the end of September (the article in the NY Times doesnt say). Here the BBCs take in October.

I wish I could work for the NY Times Foreign Desk. I imagine it involves a lot of napping and cuppocinos every day and maybe sifting through the last few months papers to find something to report as 'news'.

This is the article by Lisa Vetten where Ms Lafraniere got the story from.
