ferial haffajee and xolela mangcu engage in a fiery debate

Let me say that the issue of race is source of discussion in South Africa. Maybe it is an understatement. The issue of race can be volatile. It is in your own heart and just around the corner.

Ferrial Haffajee wrote on book with the title ‘What if there were no whites in South Africa?’ At the launch of her book another writer was present. He wrote another book with a race title ‘The colour of our future: race and identity in South Africa’.

Two vocal people who debated. Read more about this debate.
