The financial support that this government has there is one of which we say, if we want to develop and prosper as a society, we need to address the question of reviewing education and ensuring that our young people can become independent citizens. “
The Minister stated that “This national day honors the masses of South Africans who are facing oppression by security forces, death, injury, forced evictions, discrimination and other injustices under the apartheid regime, especially those who fought for our freedom.”
