This week 20 years ago, then president FW de Klerk made the speech in which he announced the planned unbanning of parties like the African National Congress (ANC) as well as the intended release of Nelson Mandela from prison. By chance a bit earlier in the week I discovered a paved path in South End fairly close to where I work. It was built by a local family who formed their business here in Port Elizabeth 100 years ago and represented all the major events of the century. The walkway ends overlooking the Baakens Valley with these three seats. On the middle seat is the word Reconciliation which represents 1994 as the year in which the first free and fair elections took place.
