Re: Post-apartheid South Africa.

As said before slavery in SA was introduced by the Dutch and abolished by the British in 1833. These ‘slaves’ were paid wages and were able to purchase their freedom and to buy property. To put things into perspective slavery in the US didn’t end until 1865.

And it’s also interesting to note that the British Slavery Abolition Act of 1833 was not fully implemented until 1998!

But this thread is about Post Apartheid SA where apartheid continues to this day and doubtless brings joy to your heart.

Frankly I think you would do better in targeting modern day slavery in the UK – on an appropriate thread of course…

Tens of thousands of modern slavery victims in UK …

Re: Post-apartheid South Africa.

Can Cyril Ramaphosa Revive the South African Dream?

"Not for the first time, the President of South Africa, Jacob Zuma, seems to be on the brink of toppling from office. That would be a good thing, were it to happen soon. Under Zuma, South Africa has been on a decade-long descent into kleptocratic mismanagement. “State capture” is an arcane term in most places; in South Africa, it is the standard description of the government’s relationship to certain tycoons and gangsters. The depredations of the country’s rulers are relatively well-documented, thanks to a stout free press, an independent judiciary, and a spirited political opposition. And yet the rainbow nation, once the great hope of Africa, has clearly lost its way. Inequality today is worse than it was at the end of apartheid; economic growth has failed to keep pace with population growth; unemployment and crime are sky-high...

Re: Post-apartheid South Africa.

D-day for Zuma to explain why he should escape corruption charges



JOHANNESBURG - Wednesday marks the deadline for President Jacob Zuma to make fresh representations to the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) on why he should not face prosecution for corruption.

In December, NPA head Shaun Abrahams gave Zuma a reprieve by extending the deadline which was initially set at November 30.

Zuma faces charges of corruption, fraud, money-laundering and racketeering after the Supreme Court of Appeal dismissed the president's appeal of a High Court ruling, declaring the NPA's 2009 decision to drop the charges irrational.

Re: Post-apartheid South Africa.

ZUMA GONE. I wonder what guarantees he wheedled out of the of the ANC ,

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-s...-idUSKCN1FY0HM

The Gupta family compound raided by the Police, looks like they weren't part of the Zuma deal.


And Zimbabwe the longtime opposition leader to Mugabe dies. At least he saw the fall of Mugabe before he died.

Re: Post-apartheid South Africa.

Who is Cyril Ramaphosa? South Africa's next leader faces huge challenges



“Cyril Ramaphosa, who is set to become South Africa’s president following the resignation of Jacob Zuma on Wednesday night, faces many challenges.

Twenty-three years after the end of the racist, repressive apartheid regime, South Africa remains a country with enormous resources and great wealth but also vast inequality and poverty…

Let us pray that SA will now become less racist, oppressive & corrupt,

Re: Post-apartheid South Africa.

South Africa's parliament voted to remove white South African farmers from their land without paying them compensation in a landmark vote on Tuesday.

The motion was supported, but amended by the ruling African National Congress (ANC), with the party promising reforms that will address racial disparities in land ownership…

More than two decades after white-minority rule came to an end in South Africa, most of the country's profitable farming land is owned by white residents. A recent land audit conducted by Agri SA, a South African agricultural industry association, found that white farmers still control 73 percent of the country's profitable farming land.

Dan Kriek, Agri SA’s president, warned that the rights of all property owners in South Africa were at stake. He said that amending the country's constitution property clause would be a step backward into a past where the protection of property rights was not applied across the board…

Re: Post-apartheid South Africa.

Hasn't this policy been used somewhere else? I have a sneaking suspicion it has and it didn't turn out too well.
