“We are not yet free… We have merely achieved the freedom to be free” – Nelson Mandela, Long Walk to Freedom (1995)

For too many South Africans, the political freedom achieved in 1994 has not been matched with economic freedom. The fact that one out of every four South Africans does not have a job is the clearest and most devastating expression of this lack of economic freedom.

The unemployed are unfree. And so we need to prioritise jobs as a passport to freedom.
