'I don't think there is going to be any change after 8 May'
As 8 May is fast approaching, have you decided who you will cast your vote for and on what basis are you making that choice?
Is this the most significant election since 1994?
To discuss the upcoming elections and whether there will be a change after Wednesday, 702's Bongani Bingwa talks to Xubera Institute's political analyst Xolani Dube.
I don't think there is going to be any change after Wednesday. I think there was a pitfall during the elite transition in 1994.Xolani Dube, Politcal anayst - Xubera Institute
We were in a hurry to be in government, but we didn't comprehend the underlying factors of us occupying those administrative positions.Xolani Dube, Politcal analyst - Xubera Institute
We as South Africans collectively failed to uproot the apartheid economic system and structures, and that is what is holding us back as a country to move forward.Xolani Dube, Politcal analyst - Xubera Institute
So, we are not going to see a change after 8 May because we didn't deconstruct the economic system of apartheid.Xolani Dube, Politcal analyst - Xubera Institute
He believes that South Africa is where it is currently because of the apartheid inheritance.
Apartheid is a system that was against humanity and that inhuman system was formed by the underworld as well as the so-called elite of our country.Xolani Dube, Politcal analyst - Xubera Institute
We have seen how the underworld captured the so-called liberators.Xolani Dube, Politcal analyst - Xubera Institute
Dube adds that South Africans says these politicians will form coalition governments.
You have to understand that politicians are the elite and they have a common interest, and the common interest is to stay in power and amass wealth amongst themselves.Xolani Dube, Politcal anayst - Xubera Institute
Democracy is a utopian concept especially in the African context, he says.
In a country like South Africa where we are polarised in terms of race and economic benefit, democracy in its perfect state will always remain elusive and a mirage.Xolani Dube, Politcal anayst - Xubera Institute
