Are the ANC worse than the white Nationalists? South Africa

Interesting to note that Wikileaks have released a United States of America cable written in January 2010 that is asking if the African National Congress who succeeded in bringing true democracy to South Africa in 1994 are not perhaps changing their democratic ways and tending to lean towards the old style of racial discrimination they fought so hard to eradicate.

Bringing to light once again, the Abahlali baseMjondolo case, where a group of informal settlement residents challenged the ANC government and received violent intimidations and forced removals from their shacks with their leaders having to go into hiding as per Apartheid era days.

Are the African National Congress as democratically inclined as they would like the world to believe? There are far too many instances cropping up in all areas where corrupt practices, unfair and undemocratic ideals are being used.

After winning the 1994 democratic elections the party seems to have forgotten what their fight was about. Looking from the first black President, Nelson Mandela, to the now President, Jacob Zuma, it is clear to note that the growing awareness to the ANC Party's corruption and intolerance for all criticism towards it, are harbouring on the dangerous side of turning this country into another African State where the basic structures of white rule being pushed aside for personal greed and intolerances for not only minority races but for the poor and un-educated indigenous people's as well.
