BEFORE 1994 we were promised, as South Africans, a unitary state with four provinces, namely the Cape, Natal, Orange Free State and Transvaal, as opposed to the homeland policy of the apartheid government.
Immediately after independence corruption reared its head in government.
They made sure we voted for the party flag. As a result we do not know who our parliamentary representative in our region is. Members of parliament are just sent in.
They adopted the homeland policy with nine homelands. This policy proved to be a get-rich-quick scheme.
As a result of this, the gap between the rich and the poor is widening.
