Cry my Beloved Country

epa07498181 (20/39) Members of the United Apostolic Church hold Sibongile Motweni (C) as she cleanse herself of evil spirits as she immerses herself in the freezing water of a waterfall at the divine Fertility Caves deep in the Maloti Mountains near Clarens, South Africa, 16 December 2011. The ritual is also to connect with their ancestors and form part of a belief that sees them retain their traditional pre-Christian belief system of ancestor worship in parallel with their Christianity. The late great Nelson Mandela and the ANC (African National Congress) brought an end to the minority rule of the white people of South Africa over the majority black people 25 years ago this year and thus brought to an end to one of the most unjust systems of repression in history: apartheid. This retrospective photo essay, depicting the chronology of South Africa's history from the arrival of the first white men in 1652, looks at South Africa's very soul and mirrors the journey of this infant democracy through its at times painful path to find balance over the past 15 years.
