Yacoob Calls for Freedom From Poverty in SA

Freedom from poverty in the South African context is one of the most important freedoms, argues Yacoob

According to Zak Yacoob, a retired Constitutional Court judge, freedom from poverty in the South African context is one of the most important freedoms.

Delivering the fifth annual Helen Suzman memorial lecture in Johannesburg, Yacoob, said that as South Africa's democracy moved towards its 20th anniversary, far too many of its citizens still suffer from poverty.

"Unless we reach a situation where all of us agree on a particular minimum level of humanity and a particular threshold at [which] people would be able to live, and unless we commit ourselves to that, we will be doomed to disaster," he warned.
