RSA Group – Words of Wisdom

RSA Group tragically lost three stalwarts in recent weeks, and we’ve had to take a few moments to catch our breath and re-align – hence our quietness on social media.

Losing people is very difficult for us as individuals, and for the organisation. It challenges us at many levels, including a few very deep and personal ones.

Within this context, we asked the Chairperson of the RSA Group Board, Khumo Shongwe, to share a few of her thoughts with us on where we’re at, and how best to move forward.

Here’s what she had to say:


1. Let us acknowledge and remember the lives of our colleagues

We’ve been truly blessed to have many wonderful people at the heart of our community for over 35 years. I urge us to remember them fondly and acknowledge their long service to RSA Group. May their souls rest in peace.


2. We cannot give up

Those of us still blessed with good health have a duty to continue holding the torch, and lighting the way. We must embrace this! And even more so during this pandemic. It is critical that we continue to observe Covid-19 protocols to reduce infections.


3. History has its eyes on us

The Covid crisis is not only about us – it is about the South Africa of the future as well. All the decisions we take have consequences, and affect our future. It is therefore important to remember to do the right thing, so as to make a significant contribution to the next generations.

It is up to each of us as individuals to ask ourselves what actions we can take today that will make history smile, rather than frown.
