ANC BOKONE BOPHIRIMA STATEMENT ON FREEDOM DAY
27/04/2017
Dakota Legoete

The African National Congress (ANC) in Bokone Bophirima joins its members and supporters well as South African citizens in general as we celebrate Freedom Day, a day that we recognise not only the need to celebrate the freedom that we enjoy as a country, but also the pains that we have gone through to attain this freedom.

27 April 1994 marked a historic day for our country, when millions of our people were for the first time allowed to vote for a governmnet of their choice after decades of oppression. As a movement that led the struggle to achieve freedom and democracy in South Africa, the ANC takes pride in the journey that we have travelled together as a country so far and wishes that citizens of this beautiful country can continue to value this day and its significance to our democracy. The 23rd anniversary of our first democratic elections should bring more hope to our people that we are wokring towards achieving much more.

Freedom Day 2017 comes at a time when Africans in general and Blacks in particular have woken up to the need to push harder to achieve the radical economic transformation that is necessary to release our masses from the serious bondages of the triple challenges of poverty, unemployment and inequality.

We acknowledge that we are not entirely free until our people - the majority of whom are Black African - can play a meaningful role in the economy and the wealth of the country. The fundamental question of land ownership and control also remains key to the fruits of freedom that we ought to enjoy. This is why as the ANC in Bokone Bophirima we are firmly behind our movement the ANC and its government as it leads our people towards radical economic transformation.

The ANC calls on all South Africans to teach our younger generations about the meaning of freedom and the sweat and blood that our people sacrificed for the attainment of this freedom, with some laying down their lives in the process. We must therefore guard our freedom jealously and protect it as one of the valuable benefits of democracy we are enjoying.

On this Freedom Day when our movement the ANC has declared 2017 the Year of Oliver Tambo, Unity in Action is more appropriate to clebrate this giant leader's life and contribution to our freedom. Let us remember that the struggle for a non-racial, non-sexist, democratic and prosperous society continues and it needs all of us to work together.
