Claim: South Africans were better off during apartheid

WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:

South Africa politician Mfanelo Skwatsha will be St. Petersburg tomorrow night.

Skwatsha is a member of the National Executive Council of the Pan Africanist Congress. The Pan Africanist Congress was formed in 1959 as a breakaway from the African Nationalist Congress, which is the dominant party now in South Africa, and is the political home of Nelson Mandela.

The party currently holds three seats in the National Assembly.

South Africa was gripped by racial segregation under its apartheid system until 1990, when one of the leaders of the African National Congress, Nelson Mandela, was finally released from prison.

But Mfanelo Skwatscha tells WMNF that conditions for the majority of people in South Africa are now worse than conditions under the apartheid system.

Mfanelo Skwatsha will be speaking at 6:30 tomorrow night at Studio 620, 620 First Ave. S. in St. Petersburg.
