Equity Unity

Equity, Unity & Inclusiveness

We believe in one South Africa, where all citizens have equal access and opportunity. South Africans are stronger together—when learning from each other—in achieving the shared goal of creating a prosperous, safe and thriving country.


At the core of ubuntu is the recognition of the dignity of each human being. We recognise the dignity of every citizen and strive to maintain and restore the dignity of every South African with every action we take, with every programme and policy we establish.


We serve the greater good of the collective—as active members of our communities we seek to contribute to their development and growth responsibly. We build trust between each other and seek to gain and maintain the trust of the general public by aligning our actions with the values we profess.

Together, we can build a better, stronger and more representative South Africa for all.
