PRETORIA – South Africa will only be a rainbow nation when white people queue in taxi ranks and use government hospitals, ANC Youth League (ANCYL) deputy president Ronald Lamola said on Tuesday.

He was speaking to students at the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) in Soshanguve, Pretoria. 

Lamola said only drastic change will make South Africa a “true rainbow nation.”

“We must see a rainbow nation in the taxi ranks of Soshanguve - we must not wait to go to Loftus to see it. It must be seen in public hospitals.” 

Lamola also said the economy will not change until there is land expropriation without compensation.
