Heritage Day is a time for us to celebrate and acknowledge one another for our distinctive histories, cultures and traditions. It's also an opportunity to reaffirm a broader South African identity - one that is rooted in resilience.
Gender-based violence plagues South Africa. It's a pernicious affliction that impacts us as individuals and a society. This Women's Day, we recognise the women who are combatting this epidemic. We must stand with them in our actions.
In the midst of a crisis, our first fears are for ourselves and our loved ones. But now more than ever is the time for us to build communities founded on a sense of interconnectedness. This International Day of Families, we are all one.
