South Africa is nothing like Australia, New Zealand or Canada – the number living in poverty is considerably higher – 23 million people!

“South African Government Wants Whites to Leave SA” – Saffa changes his name to Ivan, wants to move to Russia too
At least a million, possibly much more, white South Africans have left their country in the past three decades, but most don’t choose Russia as their new home, unlike Johannes du Toit, who is intent on settling there as Ivan Vahrushin.
“The hostility, the injustice I’m living through, it is to do with the South African government. It is an attack on our people. They don’t want us to feel comfortable in our own country. They want us all to leave,”du Toit explains in his still somewhat rough but comprehensible Russian.
