Krog vs Watson - sound the bell...

It seems the majority opinion sides with Krog against Watson. A couple of letters on the subject can be found on LitNet's seminar room.

Of interest, this analysis by publisher Eve Gray on LitNet in defence of Krog.

BUT - the voice of reason of course, belongs to Annie Gagiano.

Gagiano's remarks remind me of stories about doing "peace-keeping" in northern kwaZulu in the early nineties. If black soldiers were sent in, the IFP side of the village complained; if white soldiers, the ANC side of the village complained. When 32 Battallion was sent in, BOTH sides of the village complained.
