People promoting coloured nationalism are in danger of ignoring the many shared struggles across race and economic groups in South Africa.

Head of the History Workshop at Wits University, Professor Noor Nieftagodien says that examples of these shared experiences can be found in several communities.

He was speaking as South Africa marks Heritage Day.

Nieftagodien notes that the socio-economic problems in Mitchells Plain, which is a predominantly so-called coloured area, are similar to those in Khayelitsha.

He says the advent of South Africa’s democratic dispensation had brought with it a push for self-improvement that ignores the unity needed to fully liberate the country from the remnant of oppression.
