Yesterday was a definitive South African day. The much anticipated State of The Nation speech was even more disappointing than I thought it would be. The topics covered in the speech were a good indicator of where the headspace of our leadership is at. But what was most teling was today's front page headlines. None but one led with the State of the Nation story.
In many parts of the world, the choice beween loyalty and integrity is not clear cut. We're raised from an early age not to "tell on"; not to be a "rat" or a "snitch." Yet we hear just the opposite from our leaders.
