So simple question . . .
Why with all that's going on in the world
should we be enthralled with a murder case in South Africa except that the media is bored and thinks we're sheep?

LOL. This is just a wild guess, John, but maybe they thought that anyone who clicked on the AFRICA tab would, indeed, be interested in African news?

Not sure I understand your mentality.   Giving attention to one thing doesn't mean you don't give more attention to more important things.  But importance of goings-on in the world to each individual can be a very subjective thing.
