READER LETTER | This utopian memory was jogged by one of the DA’s election posters: “Verenig en wen”. I asked myself, who must unite?

”. I asked myself, who must unite? We are not united in cricket, rugby, swimming and the economy. Transformation is still an issue 27 years later.

I wonder if the black Soweto Rugby Club is still powerful. In 2011 they walloped the white Edenvale Panthers Rugby Club 29-7. The whites had been badly bruised by the defeat and couldn’t accept it with good grace. Their players and fans stormed the field and assaulted the black players from Soweto towards the end of the game.

Their opponents suffered serious injuries as a result. Whites have now gravitated towards black foreign nationals. Perhaps unity is aimed at them. Or is it the re-enforcement of white supremacy? Where did we go wrong? SA was regarded as a prototype and a beacon of hope for the entire world. The Mandela magic touch has dissipated into thin air. The pain is indescribable to the black majority who still bear the scars of apartheid. The more things change, the more they remain the same.
