We Need a Culture of Consequence – Onkgopotse JJ Tabane on Why He Wrote Let’s Talk Frankly

Let's Talk FranklyPolity’s Samantha Herbst recently interviewed Onkgopotse JJ Tabane about his book, Let’s Talk Frankly: Letters to Influential South Africans About the State of Our Nation.

Tabane says there are two main reasons why he wrote the book: The issue of accountability and the culture of acquiescence and silence.

“This is only the first book, there will be many others before I die,” Tabane quips, explaining that we need a culture of consequence. “The issue is that there is no sense of consequence in dealing with corruption.”
