A wish for pros­per­ity for all

The Times (South Africa) - - OPINIONOPINION ANDLETTERS - — Ed Jou­bert, Jo­han­nes­burg

I DIS­AGREE with Narendh Ganesh (Let­ters, Tues­day) that the coun­try is doomed. That more prom­i­nent politi­cians are pre­pared to stand up against cor­rup­tion is a line in the sand.

It is in all our in­ter­ests that the ANC, small or big, re­turns to some of the val­ues that founded the party.

Even if the op­po­si­tion rules af­ter 2019, peo­ple with in­tegrity will be vi­tal to the gov­ern­ing party and the op­po­si­tion.

If South Africans can em­brace an en­tre­pre­neur­ial skill, even if ev­ery busi­ness doesn’t suc­ceed, the life lessons gained equip them for chal­lenges down the road.

Let’s wish pros­per­ity in our fel­low man.

Out of this come jobs, growth and trans­for­ma­tion.
