Reflections on the July 2021 unrest in South Africa

The Centre for Mediation in Africa invites our students, staff and members of the public to share their experiences, thoughts and feelings as the current South African political crisis, triggered by the incarceration of former president Jacob Zuma on 8 July 2021, unfolds. This blog hopes to gather both expert commentary and reflections on real experiences, as the two are inevitably linked, and offer a holistic reading of the crisis.
