Did Nelson Mandela leave a country that could possibly be taken over by whites again in the next 5 decades?
With leaders of the anti apartheid struggle all gone such as Walter Max Ulyate Sisulu, Oliver Tambo, Robert Sobukwe, Joe Slovo, Leon Sullivan and Albert Luthuli, no one seems to be there to stand on a podium and remind these young South Africans that from Nigeria to Ghana and Zambia and Ethiopia and Mozambique, nations compelled their citizens to pay a levy that set their country free.
Denis Goldberg, one of the last remaining voices of the the anti apartheid struggle is white and won’t be listened by a rudderless black young population that haven’t even had enough time to leave gang violence and read about Africa’s contributions to the current South Africa. Desmond Tutu is not as strong as he used to be.
The most shocking of all that likes of Thabo Mbeki, who is arguably one of the last remaining direct beneficiaries of the rest of Africa’s contributions to the anti apartheid regime have remained mute while hundreds of Africans are looted and lyched in broad daylight.
But when the whites come back, just when they do, we’ll all be reminded that this day happened and the rest of Africa can’t help.
