Former President Thabo Mbeki stands by his claim that South Africa is a divided land.
Adressing the South African Human Rights Commission’s (SAHRC) national racism conference, Mbeki reiterated his 2002 claim that the country is made of two nations.
Mbeki says there has been very little change in the last two decades. He says white people are still seen as superior to black people and unemployment and poverty still plague our communities.— Thando Kubheka, EWN reporter
