“South Africa: From the ashes of apartheid” by Olitha Lebelo
Monday 7 February, 20:00 - 22:00
South Africa emerged as a ‘rainbow nation’ on April 27, 1994, after half a century of white rule, oppression of black people and racial segregation. It still faces huge problems. What happened to Nelson Mandela’s dream? More than two decades later, the initial euphoria has subsided. From high levels of unemployment and crime to failures in the education system, South Africa is struggling on several fronts — politically and economically. The speaker for this lecture, Ms Olitha Lebelo, a Counsellor Bilateral from the Embassy of the Republic of South Africa in the Hague, will provide insight into half a century of white rule, oppression of black people and racial segregation. Additionally, she will explain the consequences of apartheid for today’s South African society.
