In coming weeks, the world will commemorate late president Nelson Mandela’s birthday on the 18th of July. Had he still been alive, he would have turned 100 years this year. Madiba was an ardent advocate for education and skills development, because he saw these as best instruments to achieve equality. As we gather here, let us be inspired by his unshakable belief that it is in our hands to end the triple challenge of poverty, unemployment, and inequality that bedevils our country and many developing nations of Africa and the world.
