Cape Town - A small, but vocal South African group is urging people to take UFO sightings seriously and has called for the government to release secret UFO files.



"The media around the world has not played a positive role in UFO reports and there is the ridicule factor - people are afraid of the responses they would get," Christo Louw of SAUFOR (South Africa's UFO Resource) told News24.



Louw began his website in 1997 and admitted that he ran the organisation as a "one-man show", but that many South Africans were reporting UFO sightings.



"I get a lot of reports long after the sightings have taken place and you need quite a bit of resources. I've not been able to make a profession out of this," said Louw.



He said that about one out of 10 sightings get reported because the public was largely ignorant of his organisation.
