2014 marks the 20th anniversary of democratic elections in South Africa.

Will South Africa remain the token of peace and reconciliation or be affected by populist racial slogans on both sides?

Chair: Dr Lizelle Bisschoff (School of Culture & Creative Art),

Panellists: Brian Filling (the Honorary Consul for South Africa in Scotland), Jabulani Nelson Mola (Simply Soweto Encha)
