“… we are focussing on our core message on building a united, democratic and non-sexist SA. Our slogan for this year centres around dignity and prosperity for all. We are saying we have to take active steps to address past imbalances, deal with inequality and poverty in SA and address those issues that deal with job creation in the country.”
