Martin Luther King Jr.

“The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it.

Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth.

Through violence you murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate….

Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that.

Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”

Dewani Detective charged with Fraud

by duncanr

Colonel Christiaan Theron

Colonel Christiaan Theron, the detective who led the initial investigation into the death of Anni Dewani has been charged with fraud and racism.

The white officer is accused of calling a black subordinate a ‘black baboon’ and then trying to bribe him with the offer of a car to drop the accusation against him.

Full details here – http://tinyurl.com/5vauwlr

While this incident is not directly connected to the Dewani murder enquiry, no doubt Shrien Dewani’s lawyers will seek to exploit this incident to strengthen their argument that the case against their client is built on racism and fraud ?
