It's been a deadly few weeks in South Africa. Before the police, the army and the security services intervened en masse, there was widespread violence, looting and protests. Chronologically at least, it was all triggered by the arrest of the former president, Jacob Zuma, although South Africans say there's something much bigger at play. So what's really fuelling the rage and despair? Today on The Signal, we ask why South Africa remains one of the world's most unequal societies, and where the anger that's been boiling over goes next. Featured: Sakhiseni Nxumalo, Multimedia Journalist, The Mercury newspaper, Durban, South Africa Associate Professor Geoffrey Hawker, Department of Politics and International Relations, Macquarie University and Editor, Australasian Review of African Studies
