Restructuring the MRM
Restructuring is intended to make MRM more efficient, effective and truly rooted in the organs of civil society. Government will be the greatest beneficiary when MRM plays the role for which it was instituted. Sometimes it is a matter of pure semantics. We often read about restructuring the economy, a company or an organisation’s modus operandi. In the case of the Moral Regeneration Movement, restructuring is an imperative for two critical reasons: The first reason is that due to lack of resources, the MRM has not adequately honoured the fundamental mandate of the Founding Congress of the MRM in 2002. That Congress unanimously resolved that MRM must be led and driven by civil society, supported by government. Over the past thirteen years however, the reality is that this principle has faced some challenges.
The restructuring of MRM does not mean changing the resolutions or objectives of the Founding Congress or the aims and its objectives. Restructuring implies:
- To MRM must have democratically elected leadership in all the provinces.
- Provincial coordinators of the MRM must be appointed by and report to MRM.
- Ethical Leadership Workshops – Addressing leaders in all spheres of society on the importance of having moral characters.
- Community dialogues on Charter of Positive Values, Charter of Election Ethics.
- That leadership must root MRM’s positive ethical values in the wards, streets, schools, churches (religious organisations), political formations, organised labour, family neighbourhoods, youth and women formations, institutions of higher learning, traditional jurisdictions and of course, the media.
