But there are many South Africans who feel there is still hope and reason to stay in Mzansi.
A young woman recently shared why she wants to stay - her son, whom she calls a miracle.
She took to the wall of a growing community on Facebook, #I'mStaying, to share her experience. Here's her story:
"This is my son, his name is Miracle. Born @42 weeks. I stayed in the hospital for one week waiting for induced labour. After 24 doses he stopped moving, his heart stopped and they said he had died. Words can't explain the pain I felt and how I cried.
"They took me for emergency CS coz they said my life was in danger also. After they took him out I closed my eyes coz I didn't want to see him, I didn't want to have any memories of his face. As soon as I closed my eyes I heard a cry of a baby I thought I was dreaming I started crying. When I opened my eyes and looked where the cry was coming from, behold was my baby crying, he was alive. Oh, my baby was so alive. He was healthy with no complications and so was 1. The doctor and the nurses said he was a magic baby but because I am a Christian I said he was a Miracle.
"He will be turning one in 8days.....and because of him #iamStaying"
