A humble request to every South African:

  • Don’t throw garbage on the roads/streets.
  • Don’t spit or urinate on roads and walls.
  • Don’t write on walls and currency notes.
  • Don’t abuse and insult others, rather; be patient, tolerant and controlled.
  • Save water and electricity.
  • Plant a tree.
  • Obey traffic rules.
  • Honour and take care of your parents and grandparents, take their blessings and always respect them.
  • Respect women.
  • Give way to ambulances and other emergency vehicles.
  • Treat your neighbour in the way you would want to be treated.
  • Do not seek for corners to cut in anything you do.
  • Be intentional in honesty and integrity.
  • Fear God in a way that is demonstrated in your lifestyle.
  • Respect every individual, regardless of race, religion, tribe or status, we are all God’s creations.
  • Always seek to be part of the solution and not the problem.
  • Grab every opportunity to be kind and helpful.
  • Be conscious of setting a good example for younger or junior ones.
  • Be content and grateful for what you have more than lamenting over what you lack.
  • Be proud of being a South African by focusing on the positives and acknowledging that God does not make mistakes.
  • We need to change ourselves and not the country. Once we change ourselves the country will automatically change for better!
  • If we want our children to live in a clean, safe and prosperous environment, then pledge to follow these pointers in your everyday life. 

No one person or leader can change the country alone; it’s you and I who can change our beloved nation, by changing ourselves.
