#HumanRightsTweets : We need to hold our Leaders Accountable

Written by: diannem

For 1.5 hours this morning, Section 27 took over Lead SA's Twitter account during a Human Rights awareness campaign.

Using the #AccountabilityDololo and #HumanRightsTweets, Section 27 spoke about holding leaders accountable to build on a democratic and free society.

"There are good people in this country that can effect change. And we must not let a few crooks, take the whole country down. Never that."

Section 27

A hearty debate followed seeing Section 27 engage with individuals about various aspects of our Constitution and how to hold leaders accountable to their promises and roles.

Browse through the Twitter take over below:

SECTION27 is a public interest law centre that seeks to achieve substantive equality and social justice in South Africa. Guided by the principles and values in the Constitution, SECTION27 uses law, advocacy, legal literacy, research and community mobilisation to achieve access to healthcare services and basic education. SECTION27 aims to achieve structural change and accountability to ensure the dignity and equality of everyone.
