The changes that we see happening following the 2021 municipal elections are good. But they’re just the beginning of an evolutionary phase in the history of South Africa that will require balance, emotional intelligence, maturity and ethical grounding, says Solly Moeng. 

As the dusts begin to settle – hopefully not too temporarily – following a series of post-electoral multiparty deal-making sessions (negotiations?), the emerging sociopolitical and economic landscape will give us the latest version of the New South Africa. It will not be the last version, of course; the big change is expected to come following the 2024 general elections.
