How the world sees South Africa by Tim Knight

Unfortunately, the author is also, like so many, blinded by the Mandela myth.

Cathy, at some point those rose tinted glasses had to come off, even for Mr. Tim Wright. At least now the world gets to hear about what’s really happening in the modern day South Africa!

As for Mandela’s myth, there are many closets full of skeletons pre the 1990’s, both sides of the political spectrum. For me the peaceful transition of South Africa to a democracy will always be something special. Unfortunately everything appears to be in vain as South Africa heads down the slippery slope of becoming just another African state….. Hopefully time will prove me wrong?
