Seven deadly sins – Pride, greed, gluttony, sloth, wrath, envy and lust are seen in relation to South African history: the white man is responsible for all of them.
With pride, he humiliates the coloured man in his native land; with greed, he exploits other people’s lands; with gluttony, he stuffs himself and lets the others starve; with sloth, he lives a sheltered life while the coloured man can only improve his condition by studying; with lust, the white man entertains sinful relations, while the coloured man gets married and has children. Finally, the white man acts with wrath against the coloured man who now sits in a better social condition than the white man, who moves with the help of a wheelchair, on the verge of decline.
