The People’s Dialogue: South Africans share what they love most about the country
Despite the many debacles Mzansi went through this year, South Africans have a lot in common, especially when it comes to what they love about this country.
This week saw many social media users sharing what they love most about SA under the hashtags #LoveSA and #SAspeaks.
This after former Johannesburg mayor and The People's Dialogue movement founder, Herman Mashaba, called on South Africans to respond to the question: “What do you love most about our country?”
As we approach the festive season, let us focus on the positive - what we love about South Africa and why it is worth saving! What do YOU love most about our country? Post your own video under #SASpeaks or #LoveSA and give your inputs into the Dialogue at https://t.co/jgVFZwewg3 pic.twitter.com/HONMCj0PP2— Herman Mashaba (@HermanMashaba) December 17, 2019
Mashaba launched the movement to engage with South Africans about forging a better future and building a united country, after his departure from the DA in October.
On Twitter, former DA leader and MP Mmusi Maimane, who also joined The People's Dialogue, did his part and responded to Mashaba’s call.
Maimane said while 2019 was a challenging year, there were also many positives to talk about.
