The #FeesMustFall Protests – an Institutional Advancement Perspective

The #FeesMustFall Protests – an Institutional Advancement Perspective

By Inyathelo Programme Co-ordinator Khairoonisa Foflonker

History will remember them as the generation who would no longer be quiet. The generation that will no longer be excluded. The generation who said, “so far and no further”, and who led when there was no leadership to be found. They occupied Nelson Mandela Bridge. They shut down universities. They marched on Luthuli House and Parliament, and to the doors of the institutions that had failed them. From the inside of prison cells they took this country by the shoulders and they shook it. They marched for education, for change, and for each other.” Mail and Guardian, October 23 – 29, 2015.

Fighting for will of the people: Vital role of civil society organisations highlighted

Fighting for will of the people: Vital role of civil society organisations highlighted

Originally published in the Cape Times, 26 October 2015.

"We, the people of South Africa" - the first words in the preamble of our constitution - is an unequivocal declaration that the constitution derives its authority from the people of South Africa. Our constitutional democracy is grounded on informed citizens actively participating through the various institutions mandated in the constitution. A vibrant democracy requires citizens to organise themselves through civil society structures.

It was these formations that made a profound contribution to the demise of apartheid. However, during the past 20 years, civil society organisations have faced many challenges. In spite of these hurdles, a number of organisations and their leaders continue to play a significant role in giving voice to the people and advancing our democracy.
