French President Emmanuel Macron on Saturday said "colonialism was a grave mistake," and called for "turning the page" on the past during a visit to Ivory Coast, a former French colony in West Africa.
It's naïve to simplistically divide the ANC into "good guys" and "bad guys". Things are much more complex than that, writes Jeremy Cronin.

Because of our separation from our roots we have lost our languages; we do not remember our cultures and traditions, writes Mcebo Dlamini.
