Ray Hartley Assesses the Growing Urban-rural Divide in South Africa

How to Fix South AfricaRay Hartley, editor of How to Fix South Africa: The country’s leading thinkers on what must be done to create jobs, has written a column for Business Day about the evidence of the growing urban-rural divide, as demonstrated by the election results.

“The possibility that the major metropolitan areas of Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth will join Cape Town in falling under opposition control over the next decade is not far-fetched,” Hartley writes.

Last week’s elections show that SA is experiencing a growing urban-rural divide as the African National Congress (ANC) loses ground among the urban middle classes, making up for most of the losses with growing rural support.

The possibility that the major metropolitan areas of Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth will join Cape Town in falling under opposition control over the next decade is not far-fetched.
