Was it all in vain?

Dikgang Moseneke

Abstract


We reprint here an extract from Dikgang Moseneke’s autobiography, My Own Liberator. It is a call to citizens to drive their development and that of their communities; to be their own liberators. He argues that those who become the authors of their destiny will have the ability to make the tender moguls impossible and limit the role of the political elite. He appeals to the young to chart a course away from consumerism and  toward reconfiguring the social structure that is stunting growth. First published in 2016, this piece is re-published in New Agenda because of its remarkable foresight and relevance to South Africa’s current social and economic crisis.
