“Ethical leadership is not an option but a national imperative”, Chief Justice Mogoeng has said this year on the 11th of April. Individuals, political leaders, business chambers and even church leaders are all crying out for a moral regeneration in South Africa.
I personally believe that South Africa is suffering from the Cremora-Effect. Everyone is looking for the solution at the wrong place; it’s not on top, it’s inside. We need to stop passing the hot potato and take personal responsibility for our own words, actions, and lives.
The Unashamedly Ethical (UE) campaign has done exactly that over the last 6 years, it is – challenging individuals, businesses, sport, education, government, non-profits, youth and churches to a lifestyle of ethics, values and clean living. We commend the Touching Africa Network of individuals, businesses and ministries who are working together to impact their communities, our nation and even the rest of Africa. Many associates of Touching Africa are already subscribers to the UE campaign of which the 10th commitment says the following:
To collaborate with our peers to impact our community and nation:
