20 Amazing Stories About South Africa! – The Not Always Right World Tour!

| Right | December 16, 2020

Dear readers,

It’s time to continue the Not Always Right world tour! Today, we’re visiting the only country in the world to have hosted the Soccer, Cricket, and Rugby World Cup; it’s home to the oldest meteor scar in the world, and has three capital cities (Executive, Legislative, and Judicial).

We’re going to South Africa!

While the country has had a troubled history regarding race relations and economic inequality, it’s working hard to repair the damage of the past. Calling itself the Rainbow Nation – a term coined by Archbishop Desmond Tutu to describe post-apartheid South Africa, after South Africa’s first fully democratic election in 1994 – it’s on its way to be a country as beautiful as its landscape and rich heritage.

We’ve rounded up twenty stories from our archives about South Africa, its people, and many common misconceptions about where the country is! We hope you continue to enjoy the Not Always Right world tour!
