Every year on April 27, South Africans celebrate Freedom Day. The date marks the first democratic election in 1994, which brought an end to the apartheid regime and marked the start of Nelson Mandela’s Presidency. On May 8, South Africans will once again head to the polls for the country’s sixth general election since the end of apartheid.
In light of Freedom Day and with the general election around the corner, we spoke to some of our Senior Club members to find out what Freedom Day means to them.
