The upcoming series of cartoon strips is in response to a number of requests for a look on the lighter side of living in the new post-apartheid South Africa. One of the hottest topics on this front, other than the revolutionary remedies for HIV/AIDS is affirmative action, or as it is dubbed in South Africa, BBBEE – Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment.
Take this as warning in advance that this series is certainly going to contain racially driven content. Wonkie aims to provide a variety of perspectives on BBBEE – from racial as well as socio-economic points of view. If you have a funny story or a frustration to share – please feel free to leave your comment!
