In August, Mpofu-Walsh released a book titled, ‘The New Apartheid’, where he explored the a complex system of racial oppression that continues to thrive in South Africa, despite or even because of our democratic system.
He says though the book was difficult to write, the evils of apartheid is it’s ability to reproduce it self.
“The evil of apartheid lies not in the number of people killed – though it did kill many. Rather, its evil lies in the number of people it tyrranised… The grimmest feature of this monstrous system is its capacity for self-reinvention…”
“And, since 1994, apartheid has changed form. It is now dictated by markets rather than minds. Like a virus, it is neither dead not alive, but survives through the people it afflicts.”
