As early as the 1950s, the term "Ubuntu" has been seen in African literature. With the late, loved Nelson Mandela being elected as the president of South Africa in 1994, and the additional inclusion of the term in English literature by Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Ubuntu has become an internationally recognised expression. The word encompasses a plethora of social rights movements, simply translating to the most basic action and human kindness.

It's that time of the year again, when a lot of corporates go out to give Christmas parcels to the needy. They give away food parcels, clothes, toys and school uniforms, fix schools, donate funds and everything in between.

And if the CEOs get to be interviewed on one or all the morning TV shows, they are sure as hell keeping the account for another year.
