Zuma's mailbox flooded with letters about Crime

Solidarity union's anti-crime campaign saw President Jacob Zuma receive a letter in his inbox every six seconds after thousands of members of the public signed in to the website where an open letter to the president was published.

It states: "Dear Mr. Zuma... we looked forward to your state-of-the-nation address with great anticipation. We were especially anxious to hear what you have to say about crime....

"Only two percent of your speech or 115 of your 4 411 words were devoted to crime. In other words, in a speech that lasted almost an hour, one minute was spent on crime."

The letter is signed, "Concerned citizens of South Africa".

At one point the website posted a Twitter message saying: "The president is receiving one letter every six seconds!"
