Learners of the Postdene Primary School in the Tsantsabane Local Muni­cipality were reminded never to forget the heroes of the struggle and those who sacrificed their lives for the freedom that they enjoy today.

Maria Daniels, the mayor of the Tsantsabane Municipality, addressed the learners on Wednesday, 26 April, in celebration of Freedom Day under the theme of “The Year of Oliver Tambo”.

Daniels told them that Tambo would have been 100 years old this year.

“He was selfless and he spent more than 30 years in exile to ensure that we can celebrate the freedom we have today,” said Daniels.

Elaborating on the importance of learning and education, the mayor pointed out how their parents did not have the opportunity to be educated during the dark days of Apartheid.

She further urged the learners to be tolerant of other people’s cultures and religions, as the constitution allows all people to practice their culture and religion.

The event started with a sermon by Rev. Achibodstet Keyster of Postdene.

He reminded those present to reconcile in order to enjoy freedom.
