Now extended to three weeks, the University of Cape Town’s (UCT) Summer School from 7 to 25 January 2019 offers a bumper programme of 113 lectures (up from 70 in 2018) and a focus on Africa and “issues of consequence”.

These include land reform, corruption, ethical governance, and the 2019 elections.

So how is South Africa doing? I illustrate the progress by looking at the subject of mathematics."
