Has the Rainbow Nation lived up to the dream?

Twenty years ago Nelson Mandela, the former South African leader, walked out of Victor Verster prison, a step that would eventually lead to his election as the first president of a free South Africa.

Much has changed since that fateful day.

South Africa has a growing black middle class but it also has many living in shacks and an unemployment rate of around 30 per cent.

On Wednesday's Riz Khan show we talk to Bantu Holomisa, a member of parilament and president of the United Democratic Movement, about the challenges facing South Africa today.

The Riz Khan show airs at 2030GMT with repeats the next day at 0030GMT, 0530GMT and 1130GMT.
