A couple of years ago, Mark Heywood of public interest law centre Section27 spoke at a conference at a leading business school. It was shortly after the painful death of young Michael Komape in January 2014, who fell into a pit toilet and drowned.
Heywood argued then, as I believe he would still, that we are not angry enough as a people, as a nation. That we seem to be too disengaged on matters that affect our society. That we make a noise for a but short period when incidents like children dying in pits happen, when violence is meted out on school grounds and when politicians engage in corrupt activities with no repercussions.
