"The legacy of apartheid remains with us in terms of geography"- IJR researcher

The geographical legacy of apartheid in South Africa is a stumbling block in efforts to address issues of racism in the country.

This is according to Kenneth Lukako, senior project leader at the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR), who spoke to #NightTalk's Gugs Mhlungu and Sizwe Dhlomo on the possibility of rehabilitating racists in the country.

The more private conversations that you have at home tend to be with people who experience South African realities from that particular race's perspective

Kenneth Lukuko, senior project leader at the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR)

Tensions in some South African schools caused by alleged systematic racism in local former Model C schools have driven public commentary on racism and tolerance in the country.

The views that you use hardly get challenged in a public space

Kenneth Lukuko, senior project leader at the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR)

Lukuko describes the issues which give rise to racism and differences in the country, and how those who exhibit racism could possibly be rehabilitated in their views and thinking.

Listen to the conversation below:

There's a lot of superficiality when people of different races interact in the spaces where there's a lot of multi-racial mixing, because people are not actually going to those spaces to interact across races

Kenneth Lukuko, senior project leader at the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation (IJR)
