Hi. Thanks for the comment Ikong James. The social and economic issues in South Africa are deep and persistent. In the most unequal country in the world,, particularly because of a history that broke social structures and trust, there are high levels of tension and anxiety about a way forward. The need to frame the challenges in more productive ways than they played out this week, and to focus on scaling solutions that show promise, are ever more important. Talking about building bridges and scaling, you ask about partnerships to address the scaling change in face of the current turmoil in South Africa - check out these awesome examples of solutions from our strategic partner, Praekelt Foundation -
