Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng has called on South Africans to be more vocal against wrongdoing by some leaders and officials.
Justice Mogoeng was speaking during a conversation with Chairperson of the Nelson Mandela Foundation Professor Njabulo Ndebele in a prelude to Saturday’s 17th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture at University Johannesburg‘s Soweto Campus.
The Chief Justice has spoken about the need to confront what he describes as the ‘sicknesses’ of corruption, racism, tribalism, xenophobia and violence head on.
“Each and every one of us has a responsibility to contribute towards the realisation of our shared aspirations because when you do you are killing the disease, you are killing that sickness, a failure to do what we are supposed to do in line with the constitution and Madiba’s vision gave birth to the challenges that we have today so we have to confront them so this mind your business is approach explains where we are.”
