Utrecht celebrates freedom and law

eMadlangeni Mayor, Lindiwe Mhlungu hands information leaflets over to a motorist.

In the wake of injustice, the South African Constitution was critical.

eMadlangeni Municipality Mayor, Lindiwe Mhlungu joined collaborative efforts celebrating 23 years of freedom and the 20th anniversary of the signing into law of the Constitution.

This collaboration saw an ‘activation’ in Utrecht on the day.

Cllr Mhlungu joined the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS), Operation Sukuma Sakhe and other stakeholders at the roadside.

“April 27 is Freedom Day as declared in 1994, when South Africa held its first democratic elections. This year’s theme is The Year of OR Tambo: Together deepening democracy and building safer and crime-free communities,” officials explained.

During the activation, the Utrecht Mayor interacted with motorists and pedestrians and handed out leaflets bearing information on Freedom Month, a summary of the Constitution and an explanation of South African flags.

Cllr Mhlungu added Freedom Month was an opportunity for residents to reflect on 23 years of progress.

“It is also a time to recommit ourselves to work for freedom from poverty, unemployment, racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination.”

Cllr Mhlungu concluded with a message on the importance of the Constitution, describing it as ‘the supreme law of the land that reflects the will of the people of South Africa’.

“The Constitution guarantees every citizen the right to basic services such as sanitation.”
