South Africa celebrates 20 years of democracy and with that democracy we embarked on a journey to transform several aspects of our country. There Mail & Guardian's news editor for supplements, Ansie Vicente, talks to us about a special publication that we'll be bringing you next week. 

Another wage strike in the mining sector led by the Association of Mineworkers and Construction Union is under way and tension has returned to the Rustenburg area.
