[Editorial] South Africa sliding backwards

After nearly two decades of progress following the abolishment of apartheid, South Africa’s societal gains are now deteriorating. These are the conclusions of a report published on March 28 by The World Bank that analysed the country’s progress in reducing poverty and inequality from 1994 to 2015. While overall the country’s poverty levels have fallen since 1994, at least 2·5 million more South Africans since then have become poor. Over half the population lives under the poverty line, many of whom are black or South Africans of mixed race.
