“Not Very Nice” – Ferial Haffajee’s Mother on the Title: What If There Were No Whites In South Africa?

What If There Were No Whites In South Africa?Ferial Haffajee was interviewed by Sebenzile Nkambule earlier this week on her Power Up books feature on Power FM.

Haffajee begins by explaining the contentious title for her book, which her very polite mother called “not very nice”. The author, who is also editor of City Press, is launching her book at The Book Lounge in Cape Town tonight.

Haffajee says she is “a child of 1994″ and her “buy-in” to our constitution guided her thinking on the race issues she discusses in this book. In her the broadminded and deep-thinking conversation with Nkambule, Haffajee gives her opinion on the student movements, black and white power and what this country would be without white people.
