Pledge to the poor

All South Africans must renew their pledge to do everything in their power to create jobs and fight poverty (Houseit!) to give renewed hope to millions in the country that 2006 will be a happy and prosperous year for them as well, said President Thabo Mbeki.

"Many of our fellow citizens could not join the festivities because of the poverty which still affects so many people. These are fellow South Africans who do not have enough to eat even on normal days, who do not have proper housing, and are everyday exposed to diseases of malnutrition and poverty," Mbeki said in his New Year message on Saturday.
