A time to "embrace" women and children

07 August 2013, 11:46

Communitarianism is a phrase derived from the African context of “Ubuntu” meaning a unique cultural norm of preserving the community. Ubuntu has been practiced by African People long before modern civilasition, creating a “Culture" that has the essence of focusing on prosperity and sustaining the welfare of the communal. A characteristic feature that identifies all Africans as a single body that prides itself on a virtue of nurturing all humanity without prejudice due to gender, race, or ethnic group by another.

It is this force that will continue to ensure that the “people” of the Democratic Republic of South Africa will prevail against “political instability and economical uncertainty”, if we are all indiscriminately are united to the Constitution of S.A.

The Constitution on Human Rights proclaims that all citizens are equal before the law, and thus Basic Human Rights should be respected and adhered to by all who reside within the boundaries of the constituency of this Rainbow country.

It is this time, after nineteen (19) years into our democracy that we should embrace the culture of Ubuntu, irrespective of race; gender; and ethnicity and fight against all discriminatory laws that are intent on the abuse of the vulnerable people, especially the infringement of the Rights of women and children; the elderly and young; and the poor citizens.

This country is unique amongst others in the world regarding the rule of democracy, therefore we should take advantage of our diversity and work for the Development of our Rainbow Nation, in order that we can reach a state of sustainable socio-economic balance in our society.

Communitarianism is the order of the day that will ensure that we shall prevail against all odds and make this country a better place to live in, if we all adhere to the National Development Plan as “One Nation” (iSizwe).

In the Spirit of Reconciliation let’s unite and fight all scourges in our society that deprived us of our basic Human Rights and focus our efforts on building a symbolic Culture of a unified Africa, and leave behind a “heritage” to be admired by future generations.
