Its critical that we as African people understand that the African petti-bourgeoisie will always choose their class interests over the interests of the masses of African people. . . .
The deliberate obfuscation by the ruling elites of post-94 to address economic and racial injustice by racializing justice continues the white power structure. It is a continuous trajectory of prioritising transformation over decolonisation. . . .

The National Basketball Association (NBA) called off its playoff games.
