'We have come along way despite the challenges' - Lawson Naidoo

Lawson Naidoo is the Executive Secretary of the Council for the Advancement of the South African Constitution (Casac).

He spoke to Kienno Kammies on the significance of Freedom Day, and why we should use the event as a day of reflection.

We have come a long way since where we were from the days of apartheid.

Lawson Naidoo, Executive Secretary of CASAC

We need to celebrate that fact, but that does not detract from the issue that we need to be continually vigilant, we need to hold our leaders to account, we need to make sure that institutions of governance work, that accountability is extracted but in fact that the Constitution is respected.

Lawson Naidoo, Executive Secretary of CASAC

We have all collectively got to look at each other and say where did we go wrong?
