Elders Blame Democracy

Season 6 Episode 2

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 10:00pm

“In the Apartheid days, we knew our rules. We knew where we couldn’t go but I’m telling you, those were the best years. I wish that could come back”

“….it was better days, we weren’t scared”

The more things change, as they say, the more they stay the same. Not for these older persons from Parkwood Estate. They reminisce on the ‘good’ bad old days and concur that despite the great oppression suffered during the Apartheid era, times were better. One of the most absurd conclusions but can it be justified?
