Mamphela Ramphele Calls for Active Citizenship at Launch of Conversations with My Sons and Daughters
Mamphela Ramphele’s words delivered at the Cape Town launch of her book Conversations with My Sons and Daughters ring as true now as they always have. Her exhortation for South Africans to become more active citizens, embracing all the rights and duties that form part of that citizenship, was encapsulated in an article by Chisanga Mukuka for Marie Clairvoyant.
Shaking hands with Dr. Mamphela Ramphele was undoubtedly an inspiring experience. Before the launch of her book, “Conversations with my sons and daughters” she shared these words, “This talk is about you, when people want you to move out of the way tell them ‘No. Its my time now.”
