LATER this month South Africa commemorates Freedom Day (April 27), celebrating the first post-apartheid elections held on that day in 1994.
The elections were the first non-racial national elections where everyone of voting age of over 18 from any race group, including foreign citizens permanently resident in South Africa, was allowed to vote. Previously, under the apartheid regime, non-whites had only limited rights to vote.
Leading up to the special holiday the GO! & Express would like our readers to share with us “what freedom means to you”.
You can send your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Freedom” in the subject line.
We will publish some of your responses in the newspaper and others on our website http://goexpress.co.za/
