it wasn’t the ANC, nor the international boycotts, nor organized political pressure, nor a change of heart, nor repentance, nor was it economics or socio-political strategy that brought down the beast of national racism …

…the callous, corrupt, cancerous heart of apartheid rotted silently and steadily from the inside and the beast crumbled inevitably like a dead man walking…

…and now, could it be that the self-proclaimed victors too are not roaring, but weeping? –

cry the beloved country, cry
