Fellow South Africans,
Sanibonani. Dumelang. Inhlekani. Molweni. Lotjhani. Ndi masiari. Goeie dag. Good afternoon.
On this day twenty-six years ago, a new nation was born in Africa.
On the 27th of April 1994, the men, women and children of South Africa emerged from the dark vale of oppression to stand in the light of freedom.
As millions cast their votes for the first time, they boldly declared to the world that South Africa belongs to all who live in it.
The Minister of Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation, Lindiwe Sisulu, will today, 24 April 2020 receive a status update on the work that is being done to ensure the densely populated informal settlements are de-densified in order to curb the spread of the COVID-19. She will also receive a report on the situation in Lawley.
