Black Elite's Silence Aids White Monopoly

Qoheleth, in the 12th verse of the fourth chapter of Ecclesiastes, a wisdom literature book in the Holy Writ, reminds us: “Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not easily broken.”

I thought of this archaic sacred text as I began to crystallise the reasons for Johann Rupert’s arrogance.

The South African political plateau confirms a shifting reality, yet the role of capital shows no real shaking - it defies all tremors. To fully appreciate the articulation of Rupert we must first appreciate the actual control apartheid and colonial beneficiaries have on the economy. The signpost of that constituency is none but Rupert, the face of apartheid accumulated wealth and the embodiment of a successful racist regime.
