Stellenbosch University’s Law Trust Chair, Professor Thuli Madonsela, says South Africa and the United States can help set the gold standard in promoting a socially just country, through leaders in each of their societies.
She was speaking (virtual) during the university’s second annual Social Justice Lecture.
Madonsela says South Africa’s Constitution, which anti-Apartheid leaders like Nelson Mandela fought for, is already playing a key role in addressing injustices of the past.
