Allow me to invoke the profound words of our iconic writer, the late Prof Es’kia Mphahlele, whose centenary we celebrate this year, and I quote: Everybody who is willing to work and has a nation-building vision rather than aspirations for a sectional power base should be allowed to come forward and contribute ideas and hands.
