SA marks 20 years since first democratic poll

Two decades since end of apartheid, many South Africans remain angry at lack of basic needs and high unemployment.

    South Africans are preparing to celebrate twenty years since the first post-apartheid election, marking the end of white minority rule.

    While there have been many achievements since 1994, some people much more still needs to be done, with approximately one in every four South Africans unemployed, increasing poverty and a growing sense of inequality.
