This chapter discusses the perspectives of second-generation returnees on the unfinished democratic transition and how this has shaped their sense of obligation to the ANC “family” and to socio-economic development in South Africa more generally. A generational cohort with a common interpretive lens has emerged based on the shared experiences of childhood in exile. This lens is characterised by a sense of social justice, civic duty and sacrifice for the liberation struggle. It has shaped the decision by many returnees to engage as agents of change in politics, civil society and academia. Among them, the Masupatsela Generation reminds the ANC of the values for which the organisation stood and around which their own childhoods were constructed.
