The transition from a apartheid ¨dictatorship¨ to a working democracy was made without bloodshed, a example for the rest of the world, were Desmond Tutu’s truth and reconciliation hearings are rated an unprecedented fifth stage civilized tribal success.
South Africa is of course still a country with huge contrasts in every conceivable way, a challenge to any political party in charge, for now it´s ANC, the colored and black majorities responsibilities.
As for crime and corruption: look in your own backyard first. In Sweden it is institutionalized. I am horrified that a ¨equal¨ and fair society that Sweden is supposed to be, show the amount of violence and crime that we have here - what is our excuse?
