  • President Cyril Ramaphosa has delivered the State of the Nation Address (SoNA) during a joint sitting of the two Houses of Parliament (National Assembly and National Council of Provinces) on 7 February 2019 at 19h00.The theme for this year’s event was: “Following up on our commitments: Making Your Future Work Better”.

  • On 11 February 1990 Nelson Mandela walked out of prison and embarked on a decade of historic endeavour. These were years of peacemaking, negotiating, reckoning and transforming. South Africa’s transition from apartheid ended formally on 27 April 1994 with the first democratic general election. This year we mark the 25th anniversary of that seminal moment. While South Africans should still celebrate the country’s break from colonial and apartheid shackles, we would argue that a quarter of a century of democracy has not delivered on the promise of the 1990s. https://www.nelsonmandela.org/news/entry/media-statement-nelson-mandela-and-the-1990s?fbclid=IwAR0e2RMpnFNNLtBxAUwDrYBooTrX6nxXakRR6tBcz7_ebJKGkFq6V2-ypps
