Human Rights Day

It is such an honour that this year we celebrate Human Rights day under the theme: “The year of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela: promoting and deepening a human rights culture across society.” The spirit of uTat’ uMandela lives and will continue for generations to come. The Nelson Mandela Foundation has also unveiled the “Nelson Mandela Centenary 2018, Be the Legacy” programme to honour his legacy. We are also celebrating the centenary of one of the great daughters of the African soil Mama Albertina Sisulu.

As Minister Nathi Mthethwa said during the launch of Human Right Month, we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the birth of two of the greatest leaders this country, continent and the world has ever known, President Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela and Ma Nontsikelelo Albertina Sisulu.

Tat’ uMandela and Mama Sisulu dedicated their lives to fight for human rights, they are the icons and heroes of the liberation struggle. They have fought against inequality; they have shaped the vision of this country, the mission and value system. Today, 24 years into democracy, we have a voice, we have rights, and hence we honour our icons and dedicate 2018’s Human Rights Month to them.

As the leadership of today, we strive to educate this generation about the country’s struggle stalwarts, where we come from and where we are headed.
We are truly honored to be celebrating the rights of our people and going back to the teachings of our struggle heroes.

As part of our day to day human rights, we will continue serving our people as their leaders and protecting their rights at all times.  Let it be a reminder that we are all equal and shall be treated as such. No one is inferior or superior than then next person.
