Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu says the government has lost the plot to the extent that the education of children in some places is almost worse than during apartheid.
Tutu points out that, “We have let people down in so far as you have an elite that has done very well for themselves, have got quite rich. The bulk of the people are still where they where [during apartheid], sometimes worse off.”
On poverty, Tutu says the coming of political freedom does not necessarily mean the coming of economic freedom, adding that, “…it is 18 years since the [first] democratic elections, you would have hoped now that most of the ugly features of poverty would have been got rid of.”
