Former Public Protector says municipal leaders must be obsessed with seeking solutions to better the lives of ordinary people



Posted: 17 July 2018

Former Public Protector Professor Thuli Mandonsela says it takes a village for a country to achieve the things it sets out to achieve.

Professor Mandonsela who was delivering a keynote address themed ''Inspiring integral leadership for a sustainable local government sphere, in honour of Nelson Mandela'', said as the nation and the world celebrate Madiba’s legacy, it is important to remember that Nelson Mandela was part of a collective.

She was addressing over 200 delegates consisting of Mayors, Councillors, and Municipal Officials at the Inaugural Local Links Leadership Conversations Lecture Series Seminar on Thursday, 12 July 2018, at the WITS School of Governance (WSG).

The seminar was held under the umbrella theme:  “Honouring the Legacy of Nelson Mandela through Inspiring Thought Leadership in Local Government Sphere”

Mandonsela said those who are charged with leading society should not only occupy themselves with the problem and challenges but rather be obsessed with seeking solutions to better lives of ordinary people.

Professor Mandonsela lamented that inequality in South Africa continues to grow year on year.

“Democracy is under threat. We have more disengaged citizens than ever before, our citizens need to own democracy and that it is within their power to partake in decision making”, said Madonsela.
