    South Africa became one of the fastest-developing African countries after attaining democracy, which made it a preferred destination for millions of job-seeking foreign nationals. The imagination does not have to stretch too far: creating a South African identity requires some illegal assistance and a little corruption from Home Affairs officials. Sindi Gumbo, (not his real name) a 55-year-old Zimbabwean national, says she entered South Africa illegally for the first time in 2012. “I was assisted through the process of obtaining a South African ID by a middle-aged man who seemed to ease in and out of a Johannesburg Home Affairs as if it were his own personal property.

  • The Big Read: When African solutions fail

  • Zuma's nine-point plan aims to make ANC members rich: Zille

    In her weekly newsletter posted on the Democratic Alliance's website, she said the plan Zuma presented on Thursday disguised his real intentions, which would benefit his network of loyal cadres. "It is an insider enrichment scheme disguised beneath the mantle of the so-called 'developmental state', a word which in ANC-speak, means precisely the opposite of what the English language intended it to," Zille said. Zuma's nine-point plan included resolving the energy crisis, adding value to the country's mineral wealth, and encouraging private sector investment. Focusing on Zuma's call for the energy crisis to be resolved, Zille said this was what South Africa needed, but the African National Congress was not putting any plan into action.
