Let's change the name of the public holiday all together... Instead of FREE(dom) day, Rather call it INDEPENDENT(ce) day.

@Jane the majority are to dom to understand. The only FREE they understand is: - free-housing, free-education, free-condoms, free-KFC and free-T-shirt lol

I wonder how the families of the 500,000 odd people murdered under the 20 years of freedom will be 'celebrating' 'freedom day'?

Freedom Day? How are we free if we need to lock ourselves in bathrooms to escape armed burglars, if machete-weilding hooligans can run around in the streets and burn tyres or throw bricks at our cars? We're not free, but apparently all the criminals are. Is this all for them? Take your Freedom Day and shove it. I'll feel saver locked up.

That one Rolene. Wish somebody could remind us again about " the good we achieved to keep us motivated" Ah yes, let's see now An education system in shambles, a crime rate that is unbelievable, health system that is all buggered, a defence force that is laughable, a rand that is worth less than a pula and oh yes , a corrupting, philandering crook for president. Damn, we really came a long way, eh?

What freedom? People walk scared in this country, that's freedom?

Rename to Sithole/Jayde day and work relentlessly until we are truly free

Freedom day should be celebrated in commemoration of the struggle stalwarts and martyrs of freedom. I was 8 years old on that year BUT i understand very well the significance of that day and I just as I thank the Lord for the blessings and my being, I also thank the lord for that day.

Sadly, you still haven't experienced true freedom. What we have now isn't freedom, but anarchy. And most of it is a result of your struggle heroes who decided they might as well give governance a shot. When they are gone, and we have an actual government that works, then perhaps you'll know freedom. But no, this is not freedom. Maybe it's a bit of an improvement for you, but it's not freedom.
