This year marks 27 years of freedom and democracy. The Freedom Month celebrations offer us an opportunity to reflect on progress made thus far in transforming our society, while also examining our challenges.
The month celebrates freedom and commemorates the first democratic post-apartheid non-racial elections that were held on April 27th 1994, which saw Nelson Mandela elected as President. Since 1994, we have moved from an oppressive society to one which values human rights for all through advancing human development and restoring human dignity.
Our vibrant democracy is anchored by the constitution which guarantees equal rights for all.
