On 27 April, South Africans celebrate Freedom Day, to commemorate the day on which the first democratic elections were held in South Africa in 1994. This day has since been celebrated annually in South Africa since the first non-racial democratic elections, marking the establishment of a new democratic government led by Nelson Mandela and a new government subject to a new Constitution.
Freedom Day therefore serves as a reminder that the guarantee of our freedom requires us to remain vigilant against corruption and the erosion of the values of the struggle for freedom and to build an active citizenry that will work towards wiping out the legacy of racism, inequality and the promotion of the rights embodied in our Constitution.
