SOUTH AFRICA IS JUST ZIMBABWE ON A 25-YEAR LAG: ‘They Eat Money’: How Mandela’s Political Heirs Grow Rich Off Corruption.

In the generation since apartheid ended in 1994, tens of billions of dollars in public funds — intended to develop the economy and improve the lives of black South Africans — have been siphoned off by leaders of the A.N.C., the very organization that had promised them a new, equal and just nation.

Corruption has enriched A.N.C. leaders and their business allies — black and white South Africans, as well as foreigners. But the supposed beneficiaries of many government projects, in whose names the money was spent, have been left with little but seething anger and deepening disillusionment with the state of post-apartheid South Africa.

Lefties are big on promising “equal and just,” but what they always deliver is unequal and unjust.
