[...] Majority of the South Africans were lower class and the money they made was too little to afford anything luxurious. The international community could also not bear having South Africa as a member of the international society and for this reason had to shun it off. Despite summoning sanctions to help South Africa improve its economic status, the international society found it virtually impossible to have it as a member.
