The Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture, Zizi Kodwa, launched Freedom Month, at Freedom Park, in the City of Tshwane
The 2023 Freedom Month takes place under the theme: “Consolidating and Safeguarding Our Democratic Gains”.
The Minister explained one of the issue the president of Republic emphasized with regards to how the freedom day is celebrated.
He presented the latest Stats SA Household Survey (2021), which is a regular survey that gives an empirical account of improvement in terms of the general standards of living in households across the country.
This year, the 27th of April marks the 29th anniversary of South Africa’s first democratic elections. Freedom Day is commemorated every year to honour those unsung heroes and heroines who fought for freedom and paved the way for an equal, representative, non-racial society.
“As we live here today until the end of the month, we shall continue to celebrate the life of President Nelson Mandela beyond this month, beyond July but also as an anchor and hope of our people since 1994 that in spite of our difficulties we face as people, he remains a pillar of hope” said the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture, Zizi Kodwa.
South Africans are also encouraged to go out in numbers to celebrate the freedom day which was envisaged by the first black president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela.
