Apartheid colonialism ensured that it reproduces its unequal legacy into the democratic era. Our past is not equal and so, our present will also not be equal and I am willing to cast the same judgment about our future. This is reflected by the gini co-efficient in South Africa that is currently standing at 0.67, the highest in the world. In society this is reflected by the huge gap between private schools and public schools, suburbs and skwatta camps, public hospitals and private hospitals, universities in cities and universities in the former Bantustans, the list goes on and on. These gaps are not created by a democracy.
