    Aged 92 after living under Apartheid and these days the average life expectancy for people born "free" is only 52 years and as low as 48 years in some provinces. It used to be 64 years in line with EU countries in 1992. (This was measured and included all colours of South Africans). Well done ANC - oppression is taken to new heights when you effectively steal 12 years of life from your supporters, something the NP didn't manage to do. Every election the ANC wins means its supporters lose 2 years of their lives. How many far right Apartheid supporters have now decided to vote for the ANC given how they go as far as to send people to early graves? The gini-coefficient is worse, the human development index, crime, corruption name it.
