Mandela Day is a call to put Ubuntu into action

Cristina Campofreddo

Thanks to Mrs Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka (UN Under Secretary General and Executive Director of UN Women) who posted an article on Linkedin on July 18, Mandela's birthday and Mandela's day.
The world should remind Ubuntu and the meaning of it, we should all listen and remind the words that Madiba pronounced in this video .

What is Ubuntu?
According to Michael Onyebuchi Eze, the core of ubuntu can best be summarized as follows:
“ 'A person is a person through other people' strikes an affirmation of one’s humanity through recognition of an ‘other’ in his or her uniqueness and difference. It is a demand for a creative intersubjective formation in which the ‘other’ becomes a mirror (but only a mirror) for my subjectivity. This idealism suggests to us that humanity is not embedded in my person solely as an individual; my humanity is co-substantively bestowed upon the other and me. Humanity is a quality we owe to each other. We create each other and need to sustain this otherness creation. And if we belong to each other, we participate in our creations: we are because you are, and since you are, definitely I am. The ‘I am’ is not a rigid subject, but a dynamic self-constitution dependent on this otherness creation of relation and distance”.
