How noble of this "Official" ...
Perhaps he should concentrate on a few rather more important aspects of South African society:
Worlds highest Aids infection rate
Worlds second highest Crime rate
40% unemployment, 3rd world Education system
Endemic Corruption at all levels of government
This is all very typical of the current South African "regime" - an attempt to try to follow the lead of other countries, because it sounds good and looks good on paper. They also continue to play the "rainbow nation, we beat apartheid card", 15 years after the event - and when things continue to go from bad to worse, lets play the blame game...
In the meantime, the real issues the country faces are swept under the carpet - but hey, the SA government reckons that internationally, it's being seen as progressive, championing international causes - so they've got 40% unemployment and the worlds biggest AIDS problem - big deal, lets ban all pornography, that'll sort everything out...
