    Do you support Affirmative Action and BEE in South Africa?

    'No one wants to listen to us': angry Kliptown residents turn to SAHRC

    You swap the ANC for a less corrupt and more focused political party, damn near any of them, and see what happens. Just the absence of bleeding billions in corruption and ineptitude gives a lot of space for efficient service delivery.

    'No one wants to listen to us': angry Kliptown residents turn to SAHRC
