JOHANNESBURG - The National Foundations Dialogue Initiative (NFDI) has officially been launched in Johannesburg on Tuesday to convene a series of discussions.
The foundations include the Chief Albert Luthuli Foundation, Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation and the Thabo Mbeki Foundation.
The foundations have united around a common concern, saying the recent negative developments in the country have generated a national general crisis which needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency.
Issues, including political governance, the Constitution, the state of the economy and national cohesion, will be discussed in a national dialogue intended to bring all South Africans together.
The first event will be held on Friday (5 May) and will culminate in a final report, which will become the subject of a national indaba.
All sectors of society have been urged to participate in these conversations for better public accountability and governance.
