By that time of course there were great hopes that Nelson Mandela would transform everything once the elections were held and black people had taken power into their own control. The failure of such dreams is another story and besides it is far too early to judge matters yet. As Chairman Mao is reputed to have said, when asked what he thought were the lasting results of the French Revolution: “It is far too early to be able to tell!” I feel the same way about the long-term prospects of South Africa and, as I bring these ruminations to a close, the only words which seem to come to mind about Africa's future are those from the well-known song: Nkosi Sikeleli Africa…. I cannot find it in my heart to dissent from those words.
