South Africa is falling apart. Isn’t it?

South Africa

South Africa is seemingly falling apart as a result of corruption. Corruption at all levels of government over the last quarter of a century has bankrupted the country..

Tragedy and horror stories like this one should never have been allowed to occur.

South Africa is crumbling from within.

A child died by falling into latrine which was little more than a hole in the ground. Is this what needs to happen in order for toilets to be installed at a primary school?

There is a book by Alan Paton, ‘Cry, The Beloved Country’, which highlights the inequality of apartheid.

The same title can be applied to a book written today. A book that covers the period since apartheid ended.

This is the saddest realisation of all.
