Andrew Feinstein was elected an ANC member of parliament in South Africa’s first democratic elections in 1994. He resigned in 2001 in protest at the ANC government’s refusal to allow an unfettered investigation into a £5bn arms deal that was tainted by allegations of high-level corruption. Feinstein lives in London, where he chairs the Aids charity Friends of the Treatment Action Campaign, and lectures and writes on South Africa. He is a co-director of the anti-corruption organisation, Corruption Watch. This podcast was produced at the time of the South Africa World Cup and I talked to Andrew about the social and political history of South Africa and how this has shaped the country which was the focus of such enormous international attention during the tournament.
