19 criminals killed by security forces.

They believe the criminals were responsible for the 14 deaths of someone at a tourist enclave for seeing gorillas.

Someone as government didn’t say if they were tourists who were murdered.

Somehow I missed the story of the mass stabbing/hacking in Rwanda.

I’m sure the victims, were happy their killers chose stabbing and hacking weapons rather than guns.

Everyone who can should visit Africa if they have any desire to see it, just book your travel with reputable people and make sure security is provided throughout the trip. You can also book "trip insurance" that includes not just your travel costs but also guarantees you safety. There are companies that will deploy armed teams to get you out of any imaginable predicament and fly you back to the US to the hospital of your choice if needed.

The worst thing about visiting Africa (especially hunting) is that it is incredibly addictive.
Sorry but there is no such thing as any Gurantees in Life. Insurance or not, even with Blackhawk Security you can still be killed at any moment. Even if its by the Security Personnel involved in it. Just the Truth, I do agree with the hunting part though definitely addictive/fun. Still suggest acting like a Canadian so you're not so much of a "Target" so to speak. Practice saying A a lot ?
One of my biggest mistakes in life...Is Believing people will show me the same love I've shown them. :reddevil

Refugee problem in South Africa. Foreigners want to go back to where they came from as they no longer feel safe. Not sure of the issue, no money to go back or former homes won't let them back in. Protests at the UN are forcibley dispersed. Many women with babies.

10 Christian captives in Nigeria beheaded on Christmas in retaliation for ISIS leader killed by US forces a while back.

I believe they were beheaded simply because they were Christian.

Remember this when AOC and Omar talk about how bad we are here in America.
