Freedom Day

Freedom Day is celebrated every year as a reminder of the struggle for a free South Africa. It commemorates the first democratic elections held in South Africa on 27 April 1994. The elections were the first non-racial national elections where all South Africans of voting age from any race group was allowed to vote. Previously, under the apartheid regime, non-whites had only limited rights to vote.

Freedom Day provides the perfect time to celebrate the freedom our democracy grants us with your loved ones.
