How come South Africa voted mostly for the right-wing Nationalist Party before 1994 but after 1994 vote for left-wing ANC?

What caused the shift in voting pattern?

    I dunno. Less intimidation, corruption and dodgy vote-counting?

    They gave blacks the vote then. The blacks wanted communism and they got it. Now a lot of them think it was better under apartheid. The economy is collapsing, infrastructure is crumbling and violent crime and corruption everywhere. But if you go against the ANC you might end up with a tyre soaked in petrol around your neck.
