Today marks the third year since the passing of the first president of democratic South Africa, Nelson Mandela.
Mandela, a selfless, dedicated and brave freedom fighter, will be remembered for his ability to unite people from different communities.
The Free State government remembers Madiba, whose commitment to the struggle is best referenced during the days when he received military training, played a role in a military struggle against the repressive Apartheid regime, as well as when he, and many other freedom fighters, was imprisoned for the attainment of our freedom.
“On this occasion of Tata Mandela’s third years after his passing, we reaffirm our commitment to the struggle for radical socio-economic transformation. We reaffirm our commitment to the transfer of wealth to the previously disadvantaged communities. We also reaffirm our commitment towards racial equality. May the soul of Tata Mandela continue to rest in peace”, said Premier Magashule
