Who Are We?
minded organisation set up by a variety of individuals, from all corners of South
Africa, drawn together by the need to bring our nation back to a state of
‘’UBUNTU’’, ensuring that all South Africans, irrespective of race, creed and political
affiliation, live together in harmony and
respect for all. ‘’We need to rediscover a national
conversation where we talk more truthfully and listen more intently. Dialogue
still has a crucial role in helping to create our dream of a South Africa that
is just and reconciled,’’ Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu
and minds of South Africans have been compromised, partly through no fault of
their own, by politicians, social media influencers and the written/spoken
press. UniteSA, an NPC formed by
like-minded and dedicated South Africans from all walks of life, seeks to
re-address this impasse by creating dialogue that is free, fair and thoughtful
between all members of the Rainbow Nation, most
importantly, by changing the message that is delivered to our communities.
The new message is one of love,
kindness and compassion making South Africans forever conscious of their true
worth, constructing the idea of freedom and peace of mind into the collective
consciousness, so that it reaches our subconscious depths, remembering that
whatever thought we anchor our minds upon, the mind magnifies.
Key points that underpin the foundation of
- Oppose hate
speech, animosity and division in all
- Aspire to the
highest values, morals and principles, always acting with consideration, truth
and utmost accountability

problem. The answer is in every question.
What does UniteSA stand for?
divide in South Africa has always been the elephant in the room that few
acknowledge and fewer still want to discuss in open forums. UniteSA seeks to
address these issues in a manner that is respectful and mindful to all. This
allows us to have the building blocks to continually construct a better South
- Open Dialogue between all races

What is Unite SA willing to achieve?
primarily needs to build the confidence of the country through cementing
stronger friendships/relationships between all races regardless of
associations. This is the foundation that will hold up all the pillars of Ubuntu,
driving servitude to all as the capstone of the organisation ‘’In order to be a leader, one needs to be a
servant’’ Nelson Mandela
How does Unite SA bridge the chasm?
