Johannesburg - The ANC on Wednesday called on South Africans from all backgrounds to celebrate the country's collective heritage.

"As we celebrate this day let us do so with high regard of the developments that ushered a new democracy which has been the foundation of the new identity we have embraced," spokesperson Zizi Kodwa said in a statement.

"We need to take pride in our ability to appreciate the positive step that has rebuilt in us a new sense of belonging and appreciation of the richness of our diversity and acceptance of what makes us a more tolerant and appreciative people."

He said the nation should recommit itself to cultivating an even deeper sense of nationhood.

It was because of the country's collective heritage that it was becoming a home for all South Africans, Kodwa said.

Heritage Day is a public holiday in South Africa where people are encouraged to celebrate the many cultures in the country and their heritage.
