It is with profound sadness that Agang South Africa learnt of the passing of former president Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela earlier today. As in life, Madiba brings us together as South Africans and people from across the world and from all walks of life as we mourn and honour the memory and legacy of the father of our young nation.
The latest from the campaign
Today is International Day of Persons with Disabilities as well as the South African National Disability Rights Awareness Day. As Agang SA we believe that dignity and justice are universal principles for ALL of South Africa's people. For too long, people with disability in South Africa have been relying upon begging and hand-outs for livelihood instead of self-sufficiency through decent healthcare, education and jobs.
Today the ANC government finally turns it's back on Gauteng as etolling begins. It is an achievement to have united people from so many different walks of life. In the face of their arrogance and disdain we rose up together in opposition.
