Published on

The Premier of the Western Cape has urged citizens to commemorate Mandela Day by recommitting to the values Madiba stood for, and to stand together against violence and hate.  

The Premier of the Western Cape, Alan Winde, issued a Mandela Day statement on Sunday, 18 July 2021. Winde reflected on the country having been shaken by the recent unrest seen in parts of KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) and Gauteng, and expressed his personal shock at the images of violence, looting, and the devastation to livelihoods.

The premier stated that there could not be a better moment for a Mandela Day for the country to recommit itself to the values that Madiba stood for, and for the country to once again stand together to reject violence and hate. He also encouraged the country to commit to peace and prosperity. Premier Winde further urged every single resident of the Western Cape to use Mandela Day to pause and reflect on all that is kind, good and beautiful in the province and country, and to remember that as people, we are truly stronger united together.
