Bill of Values

The challenges we face in South Africa require a strong moral compass. A clear and strong moral compass constitutes absolute values that guide and govern our behaviour as a nation: the rights and responsibilities that both citizens and leaders at all levels of government adhere to. The following Bill of Values for non-partisan, values-based, people-driven, societal, and governance systems, is drawn from the primary values, principles, ethics and moral standards that have stood the test of time, and have characterised historically stable, good, and lasting legacies amongst individual citizens, families, communities, societies, and nations
