The Condition of South Africa

28 March 2012, 09:33
It’s 1994, we as South Africans have our very first democratic election. 35 Million People just became citizens after years of being seen as animals. The white people vote for the white party and the black people vote for the black party. The other races vote for one of those parties. Days later we realize we will have our first black president. White people are worried that it might be the end of their way of life or even life itself.  Black people worry that Apartheid might comeback.

The races are as divided as they have ever been. The results come in and Nelson Mandela becomes president of South Africa and over the next 4 years all South Africans realize that everything is going to be ok.

It’s 2012, we as South Africans have experienced democracy for 18 years. Millions of the 35 Million people are still uneducated and live in the exact same, if not worse, conditions as 18 years ago.  The White people still vote for the white party and the black people still vote for the black party. The races are as divided as they have ever been.  White people are worried whether the 50 murders a day will increase along with a rape occurring every 7 seconds.

Black people are worried that Apartheid might come back and that they haven’t received an education from their party or a house with electricity and running water. They are also scared because their party told them that if they vote for someone else they will get haunted by the ancestors,go to hell or that Nelson Mandela might not get better or stay healthy. Nelson Mandela retired from the presidency of South Africa for 12 years now.

Since then 3people have led South Africa. All three stemming from the black party. The latest person to hold this position is a person that has a history that drowns him with uncertainty as to whether he is a hero or a villain.There is no Nelson Mandela like personality at the moment, only a youth that is loved by a lot of young black people, they say even though he is in trouble now he will lead South Africa one day. They say he is the Nelson Mandela of our time. They call him Julius Malema.

It’s 2030...(???)
