Johannesburg, Monday 7 March 2016 – Brand South Africa, in partnership with Operation Hydrate, will host a dialogue looking at how all citizens can play their part to promote a culture of active citizenship and the respect for human rights with the communities of the Kgetlengrivier Local Municipality on Saturday 12 March 2016 at the Swartruggens Combined School in the North West.

The Constitution of South Africa not only protects our human rights, but also envisions a prosperous, democratic, non-sexist, non-racist and equitable society. To bring the spirit of the Constitution to life, all citizens must be empowered to play their part. Only when all sectors of South Africa come together will the Constitution become a reality for all citizens. This dialogue will within this context, explore current challenges and solutions towards building a socially cohesive South Africa.

Panellists for the dialogue will include, amongst others, Mayor Kim Madupe, Judge Yvonne Mokgoro, Operation Hydrate’s Yaseen Theba and social advocate Yusuf Abramjee.

Following the discussions, Brand South Africa and Operation Hydrate will hand over water to the communities of Kgetlengriver Local Municipality which is one of those worst affected by the current drought.

Media are invited as follows:

Time: 08h00-14h00
