Struggle stalwart Jay Naidoo has called on young change-makers in South Africa to not fall into the trap of pursuing individual success at the expense of their communities.
Addressing a group of young ‘activators’ who wish to lead South Africa into an era of innovative thinking for the public good, Naidoo said,
“As a generation, you will not be judged on your individual success but rather on how you thought in terms of ubuntu and your communities.”
And, he added, “We have to ask ourselves what we have to do today to be the world’s leading country and continent with a narrative that speaks about ‘sailing’ together. We have the dubious honour of being one of the most unequal societies on earth, and it is up to you, the young change-makers of the land, to make sure we have accountable leaders.”
