There is little doubt that the recent cabinet reshuffle and credit rating downgrade announcement has brought a lot of concern for many South Africans, the far-reaching effects of which will be felt by the economy and society at large for some time. It is important that all leaders in government, business, organised labour and civil society, who have the interest of our country and all its citizens at heart, stand together to ensure that South Africa is on the right path to achieve a stable and sustainable political, social and economic environment for all South Africans.
