Speaking today (23 October 2019) at the Civil Society Conference on Defeating State Capture and Rebuilding the State hosted by Ahmed Kathrada Foundation and PARI. I’ve been asked to sum up at the end on ‘Mapping the way forward for civil society – charter detailing focal areas of work for civil society’. Many notables here – the ‘who’s who’ of the anti-capture movement. Derek Hanekom doing the opening now. Sense of confidence in the room that ‘we are winning’. Hope is important, after all. As the Old Testament Proverb says: ‘Without hope the nation perishes.’ Without courage, there can be no hope.
