The longer an argument remains unsettled the more it devolves into an argument of semantics. We're all logical beings to varying degrees and with sufficient logic and reasoning we should all eventually agree on everything. But the opposite appears to be true, as a species we seem to agree very rarely.

ANC dominated and blue is DA. The first impression one gets when looking at the results for the Upper Highway area in Durban is that it is predominantly ANC run with pockets of DA support. Not unlike most of South Africa and it's what most people have come to expect of South African elections.

Inequality is ultimately a self sufficiency problem which is a result of lack of education. The relatively high distribution of education in the 20th century can be credited for the ramp in technological progress but still so many people on Earth suffer while the privileged few live in a world of relative opulence that the kings and emperors of the past could never have imagined.

The free market system depends on competition to balance cost and quality and to ultimately create efficient production. That's the ideal behind it. But in order for any competition to produce reliable "winners" the judges need to be well educated in the subject matter. In the case of a free market socio-economic system the "judges" (aka the citizens) are themselves in competition to earn "votes" (aka money). For this reason people simply don't have time to educate themselves sufficiently when they're trying to earn "votes" needed to increase their own influence.
