JOHANNESBURG - Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng has encouraged South Africans to seek to understand and learn more about other cultures, languages and religions.
"We need unity now more than ever before. I has got to be something that each one of us worries about on a daily basis. The simplest way to start is to learn more about or know more about one another. As a South African you've got to want to know other languages," he said.
"We can't just be learning English. We've got to know Tshivenda, isiXhosa... if you are committed in building the unity we so desperately need," he said.
Mogoeng delivered the keynote address at the 17th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture on Saturday.
