SA celebrates 25 years of democracy


    Government has urged South Africans to join in on this year’s national Freedom Month celebration that coincides with the country’s 25 years of Freedom and Democracy.

    The celebration is a month before South Africans take to the polls on 8 May. The theme for this year is “Celebrating 25 Years of Democracy”.

    “Freedom Month affords South Africans the opportunity to make a pledge towards fighting the legacy of racism and economic inequality as well as renewing loyalty to the country and commitment to its future,” government said in a statement issued on Thursday.

    “During this Freedom Month we celebrate our achievements and reflect on our successes during the 25 years of Freedom and Democracy,” said Government Communication and Information System (GCIS) Acting Director-General Phumla Williams.

    She said the country’s vibrant democracy is anchored in the Constitution which guarantees equal rights for all.

    “Since the dawn of democracy, government has consistently worked on improving the lives of all South Africans,” said Williams.

    Government has encouraged South Africans to work together to encourage a socially integrated and inclusive South Africa.

    “All sectors of society must play their part in building an inclusive economy and work together to remove all obstacles which still divide society and strive to build on the many ties that bind it together,” Williams said.  

    Government added that nation building is a process that should be nurtured and defended and South Africans should continue forging a national identity which binds everyone together around the values including mutual respect, tolerance and acceptance.

    Members of the public are urged to join the conversation on social media and share their messages, memories or reflections of these 25 Years of Freedom and Democracy using the hashtags #FreedomMonth and the #MyFreedomSA Facebook profile picture frame found on this link:

    5. Hi there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
      use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    6. Because appeal is connected to bodily elegance, it is
      actually not shocking that makeup plays an essential duty in enhancing physical charm.
      Makeup aids boost the skin complexion, enrich hair and eye
      colour, and improve one’s overall look.
      However, this is certainly not to point out that makeup
      can completely conceal flaws or that it offers you a perfect and also blemish-free skin. It merely helps enhance your
      appeal and give you confidence.

      Among the absolute most usual interpretations of elegance is actually ‘the
      appeal of your smile’. In my point of view, nevertheless, the most
      proper word for ‘beauty’ is actually ‘confidence’.
      Self-confidence is actually most of the times identified as pompousness or even pretext.
      But, with self-confidence, folks are actually most likely to display their absolute best
      features to the world as well as are even more relaxed being themselves.

      And, this features their physical beauty, including their makeup treatment.
