Go Winterboks!
The first ever African Nations Cup of Ice Hockey will be taking place from September 19-26 in Johannesburg, South Africa, between Algeria (who are fresh off their first ever victory against a French Division II team), South Africa (who I witnessed lose all of their games in the IIHF Div. IIB World Championships last May) and Morocco (who I know nothing about).
I will let you know exciting details as they are made available!

How To Make Apartheid Look Good
South Africa Rape Survey

Holy shit. 25% of men in this regional survey admit to rape. 10% of men admit to being raped by other men. The whole thing seems completely unbelievable.

In your face, Mongolia!
South Africa beat Mongolia 12-4 to win the silver medal in the International Ice Hockey Division III World Champions.

South Africa also beat Greece, Turkey and Luxembourg, before finally falling to those dirty Commies from North Korea . They therefore are promoted to Division II next year, to face powerhouses like Belgium, Serbia and Spain.

What's it like in Nairobi, Kenya?
The online community around Lux is a pretty diverse group. One member has been living in Nairobi, Kenya for the past 2 years. He recently made a detailed post in the forums describing the situation there. It's a fascinating read, here's a snippet:
Just like the world's largest slum (in terms of population per square meter [yes, that is correct. Over one million people in two square kilometers]), Kibari, "doesn't exist" according to the government. It's just a big open air market. Because Kenya doesn't have any slums, you know. Not even Mathare (another "not a slum") where the murder rate per day is comparable to Oakland CA's per /week/...in a space just over a square kilometer.
