This article discusses that since Nelson Mandela, South Africa is thriving economically. They have a growing middle-class which is a necessity for a stable economy in a country. About 40% of the population is under 35 which means they have a very young demographic and a new working class. Rasool, the South Africa Ambassador to the United States, is looking towards a positive future for South Africa. Even though their country is haunted by the apartheid, they have come a long way since Nelson Mandela and are working towards a bright future. They still have a lot to work through, but they have made substantial progress.
