South Africa Votes on its Future

Listen in pop-out player

South Africa is to vote in an election in which the country's massive economic divide will be the key issue. Has the ANC been able to convince the electorate that education reforms and economic development will, at last, help those at the very bottom? Matthew Davies visits the township of Bekkersdal, where poverty is clear to see and where local people are keen for change. And he talks to Colin Coleman, managing director of Goldman Sachs South Africa, about the ecoomic challenges ahead for the country.

Plus, Lucy Kellaway of the Finanacial Times, offers us her advice on taking advice.
