South Africans, please calm down! - A journey through South Africa over 40 years (Part1)

 

Out of years

 

From many years in South Africa, these images began in the early 1980s. It is a pictorial arc of everyday South African scenes. These photos are seen from the perspective of the time. It is interesting to see how the country changed over the decades. 

It was the dirtiest period of politics by a mendacious gang of  supremacists in South Africa.

Mandela was in prison just for fighting for freedom and for the idea-one man-one vote.

It dawned on even the white South Africans that it had been wrong to imprison the real masters of the country.

It was the time of Desmond Tutu.

Shameful abuses escalated into unrestrained brutality were the order of the day. A brutal, despicable war was waged against anyone who rebelled and yet, the "old crocodile" Botha warned of the circumstances of today.

Unfortunately, as one realizes these days, Botha was right, the ANC cannot handle some of its power. As it did then. Just think of Stompie or the pageantry in which Winnie Mandela and her followers lived and preached water in Soweto. Zuma and his corruption warped to excess is only a logical consequence of what started back then. 

South Africans, please calm down!
