WHAT ARE WE CELEBRATING ON FREEDOM DAY?
Freedom Day is a South African public holiday that is celebrated on April 27th each year.
If April 27th falls on a Sunday, the following Monday will be observed as a holiday.
The day celebrates freedom and commemorates the first democratic post-apartheid non-racial elections that were held on April 27th 1994, which saw Nelson Mandela elected as President.
Freedom Day is the National Day of South Africa and is a day of glory and remembrance for all South Africans.
