The demise of moral values in our society, especially those that are aptly encapsulated in the Ubuntu social ethic is cause for concern. Love for the neighbour, truth and consideration of others in all circumstances seem to have been lost. What is worrisome though, in this relation, is the fact that morally unacceptable behaviours and practices have become a demon that is beginning to hold the post-1994 South Africa to ransom. As a result ethical issues such as bribery, intentional lying or misrepresentation of facts, murder and sexual offences are becoming common offences that actually claim much of the time of our courts of law.
