Citizen Corner: GNU vs Coalition

View descriptionShare

As political parties are still deciding on how to run the country under a possible government of national unity as proposed by the ANC, we continue discussions around what the possibilities are. Many have been likening this period to 1994 as we were starting a road to democracy under a government led by Nelson Mandela under a government of national unity with two deputy presidents. Well, we thought to bring in some of the people who were active in that period to talk about the dynamics that were at play then comparing them to today. What lessons can we learn in order to take the country forward?
