Delegates at the DDP Ethical Leadership workshop held at Elangeni Hotel in Durban 17-18 May 2021.
The National Development Plan argued that ethical leadership and good governance are the cornerstone to creating a state that is capable of delivering developmental outcomes to millions languishing in poverty and unemployment. The DDP hosted a 2 day workshop to unpack this narrative. This workshop was held at Elangeni Hotel on the 17-18 May 2021 and was facilitated by Dr Isaac Khambule (UKZN); Mr Khanya Vilakazi (UMP). The workshop was attended by political parties, civil society organizations, academics as well as youth.
