From: Nelson Mandela Foundation
The Nelson Mandela Foundation congratulates the new presidency and national executive of South Africa on their induction into office. We celebrate the significant increase in both the number of women and of younger people into these positions of leadership and look forward to seeing their influence on both lawmaking and governance. This sets an important transformation precedent for the country.
A great burden of responsibility rests on the shoulders of our new national leadership as it tackles multiple challenges and priorities. Its greatest resource will be a determination to uphold and be faithful to the Constitution of the Republic and to serve South Africa with humility, integrity and accountability.
We urge South Africans to hold the new administration accountable, be active citizens, and contribute meaningfully to the deepening of our young democracy.
