Senekal last week had nothing to do with solutions. It was all about politicians’ testosterone. It was all about politicians’ egos.

Nothing that is a solution to farm murders – many of whose victims are poorly paid, desperate black people – or a solution to the incredibly horrendous murder and crime problem in this country.
