Re: Post-apartheid South Africa.



It’s a tragedy – at least in the ‘bad old days’ people had jobs and a roof over their heads, reduced crime and minimal government corruption.

A simple example of communal decline: letter from S Africa, 1998

Re: Post-apartheid South Africa.

BTW Bill, maybe you could change the title of this thread – Apartheid is alive & well in SA. As a white guy in SA looking for a job you’ll find 20 blacks ahead of you and selection is by colour rather than ability.

Re: Post-apartheid South Africa.

It’s nice to see the DA making some inroads – ‘maybe’ the masses are beginning to think but the light is still way far down the tunnel.

It’s still very much an African country where the sangomas outnumber western medical practitioners, where government is for the government rather than for the people etc and I think it will continue to go backwards to Zimbabweism unless there is serious opposition to the ANC. I’m not holding my breath.

‘Cry the Beloved Country’ indeed.
