OR Tambo School is kickstarting its weekly virtual Umrabulo Dialogues on Sunday, 20th March 2022 as part of overall commemorations of Human Rights Day that will be observed on 21st March 2022.
At the core of the school’s advocacy is the belief that a politically educated nation is well endowed to develop and preserve a human rights culture. And that such culture should be rooted in the advancement of people’s daily lived realities.
The theme of the upcoming Umrabulo Dialogue is *Redress of State Capture: _The Pros & Cons_*. Guest speakers are a panel comprising *Professor Thuli Madonsela (former Public Protector and professor at Stellenbosch University), Pali Lehohla (former Statistician-General) and Dr Oscar van Heerden (Deputy Vice-Chancellor at Fort Hare University).*
“Our panel of speakers are no strangers to discourse around the much spoken about subject of state capture. As we wrestle with numerous questions about how to thrust our country forward, we intend for this engagement to share some light around vexing questions of state capture as it relates to these very concerns” explains Principal of OR Tambo School, Dr David Masondo. “And in such engagements would arise questions about the type of human rights culture we seek to build as a nation”.
Some of the issues the panel of speakers are requested to address concerns both risks and opportunities that must be considered as South Africa addresses the impacts of state capture. Also, how and whether we can frame and address state capture in a manner which can unite the country around common value systems that are aligned to advancing South Africa’s democratic project.
The virtual Umrabulo Dialogue will take place on Zoom platform with live streaming on the OR Tambo School Facebook page on Sunday, 20th March 2022 from 12h00 until 14h00.
