Author and City Press editor-in-chief, Ferial Haffajee, examines the history of South Africa and offers some thought-provoking analysis on the present state of the country in her latest book, 'What if there were no Whites in South Africa?'.
Haffajee says criticism over her book title is telling of some views held about what freedom is in South Africa.
Haffajee says black youth have taken it upon themselves to challenge the so-called gains of democracy, referring to an 'auditing of 1994' and the years since the political change.
