As many South Africans made their voices heard at yesterday’s Freedom Day celebrations, President Jacob Zuma reiterated his call for unity and reconciliation.

He was addressing thousands of people gathered at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

The celebrations were also attended by opposition parties who delivered their messages of support.

Zuma believes the ghost of apartheid still haunts the country, despite 16-years of democratic freedoms, a proud constitution, entrenched rights, and universal suffrage.

At the gathering, the Congress of the People's Mvume Dandala spoke about the economic struggles facing South Africans.
