Poor law enforcement helps
Our future president believes that having a shower prevented him from contracting HIV. One of our countries most senior politicians is a man who has been convicted of fraud for accepting a 47% discount on a car in exchange politicial favours. He is currently facing charges of violating his parole by driving drunk.
Our police commissioner has just been suspended after multiple counts of fraud, corruption, and racketeering were laid against him. It is widely believed that the president was protecting him from investigation. There are 50 murders reported each day in our country, and our minister of Safety and Security has suggested that white people go back to Europe instead of complaining.
We have good universities, and a semi-decent internet infrastructure. We have idiotic and corrupt politicians, an incompetent police force, and are far behind in -legislating- computer crime. So we are the land of opportunity for malware authors.
But people who can afford computers and internet access can generally afford not to do crime. We don't have the internet cafe culture that Asia does. The people with programming skills are predominantly white (still) and are more likely to go and work in Ireland or England than stay here and write malware. There are plenty of IT jobs here anyway.
Unless maybe those OLPC fiends succeed in their plan to distribute computers to the starving masses.
