Our leaders lack moral authority

Modidima Mannya says public officials must always go with the spirit of “what can I give?”, not “what can I get?”. Those who are found to have lost moral courage must restore society’s faith in democracy by voluntarily leaving office.

Suspended status: democracy and authoritarianism

The ANC employs a holding strategy in the absence of the state’s capacity to secure meaningful, long-term, popular legitimacy through radical social, economic and political redress for the past, argues Chris Maxon.

My culture, my heritage, my pride

Africa’s heritage has always been our greatest asset … I have always believed that our heritage is a testament to who we are as a people – bold and brilliant with a creative drive that has inspired creatives whose locally grown ideas have become global brands, writes Precious Moloi-Motsepe.

The moment of truth

Decolonising higher education institutions in South Africa can only succeed if the perspectives and rights of all players are acknowledged, writes Velile Notshulwana-Mqota.

Stand strong, Caster!

Semenya should draw strength that she is in very good company as one of many women in recent decades who have championed gender equality in sport, asserts Alleyn Diesel.
