Chairperson of the National Lotteries Board, Professor Nevuthanda,
The leadership of SANGONeT and SANGOCO,
Ladies and gentlemen,
I greet you.

The Southern African NGO Network (SANGONeT), in partnership with the South African National NGO Coalition (SANGOCO), invites you to the official launch of the Tipfuxeni Project, on 23 September 2014 in Johannesburg.
Share Your NGO Storytelling Experiences on 4 September 2014
Storytelling is an integral part of human behaviour and increasingly relevant to the strategic communication and awareness-raising activities of non-governmental organisations (NGOs) globally.
Stories help people to better remember specific experiences. Stories shape our identities. With a great story, you can ensure that donors and supporters understand your work.
A few weeks ago, Sun City employees downed tools after discovering that the resort’s management had allegedly installed hidden cameras, without informing workers. This subsequently led to dismissal of hundreds of workers, accused by Sun City of ‘stealing food and beverages’.
To be faithful to South Africa and to obey, respect and uphold the Constitution in terms of their oath or affirmation of office, takes precedence above any other duty of Members of Parliament - including political party interests.
As such, Members of Parliament have a primary constitutional duty, apart from their combined legislative authority, to scrutinise and oversee executive action and to provide a national forum for public consideration of issues - to ensure accountable, responsive and open government.
