Former president Nelson Mandela is lauded internationally for leading South Africa into democracy, but there are deep divisions in the country about his legacy.
702 and Cape Talk listeners on Friday had a heated debate regarding the effects of decisions that were made during negotiations with the apartheid government.
Listen to the conversation below:
People must understand that this current dispensation is not what the leaders in exile had envisaged for today's South Africa.— Thabo, caller from Sandton
...Mandela's legacy is one of a man with good intentions but unfortunately he took it too far by almost making black people forget what had just happened.— Simphiwe, caller from Ruimsig
The young people didn't experience the hardship of apartheid...Mandela achieved his goal of freedom, why don't the young people mobilise and achieve their goals if they aren't happy?— Ismael, caller from Athlone
