Being previously based in Johannesburg, South Africa, and operating an international business, travelling around the globe, including the USA and many European countries, I considered the UAE — and in particular Dubai — to launch my own business in this great country.

Nothing but the truth to tell, after almost two years of residing here in Dubai, I found it as one of the safest places with full security umbrella offered by the authorities and guarded by the Dubai Police.

Round the clock, days and nights I was and still moving with full comfort and in ease, without encountering any feeling that I am endangered or subject to any risk.

People who are trying to spoil the image of wonderful Dubai should be extremely careful and never broadcast their personal issues or misbehaviours in a way to affect Dubai’s name as one of the best economic and business hub in the world.

The matter, as I can see it, is if you don’t violate the laws, respect the traditions, you can have the best lifestyle you can ever find in this world. No exaggeration is implied here but only the facts.
