Come, black man, black woman in South Africa – tell us this: You are poor. You are unemployed. You are still in the shack. You are still hungry.
25 Years ago the ANC took all the political power in the country and launched initiatives such as BEE and Affirmative Action to help you.
Why are you still poor after all this time? Is it Jan van Riebeeck or HF Verwoerd or Eugene TerreBlanche? Is it any of them who tells you how you were robbed of land and abused and disadvantaged, but behind your back they pose for pictures with their personal fashion designer?
No black man, black woman – these are the men who live in opulence, with their bellies full with your children’s food, who wears the fancy suits and expensive watches and live in mansions with many rooms, who drives a fancy car and never bothers to ride in a bus or a train – these are the men who do not lie awake at night worrying about the candle that might set the shack
