The incredible Watsons

The incredible Watsons

In many ways 1994 was wonderful. It was the moment in our history when we turned away from a racist dispensation to the possibility of a democratic future. It was the moment when the door opened to the chance of all being only South Africans with no qualification as to race or group. But it was also the moment when formerly honourable activists and freedom fighters morphed their struggle credentials into vast amounts of money.

Among these, none are more colourful than the incredible Watson brothers of Port Elizabeth.
