#Ramaphosa calls for a fair UN

The Sunday Independent - - METRO -

PRES­I­DENT Cyril Ramaphosa has urged global lead­ers to forge a more rep­re­sen­ta­tive, equal and fair UN in order to bet­ter grap­ple with poverty, job­less­ness and in­equal­ity.

Ramaphosa, who is at­tend­ing the UN Gen­eral As­sem­bly for the first time, in­voked the words of Nel­son Man­dela, who once told the an­nual sum­mit: “The mil­lions across our globe who stand ex­pec­tant at the gates of hope look to this or­gan­i­sa­tion to bring them peace, to bring them life, to bring them a life worth liv­ing.”
