South Africa: Twenty Years of Freedom Exhibition Starts Today
Source: www.sanews.gov.za
Source Date: Friday, January 31, 2014
Focus: Electronic and Mobile Government, ICT for MDGs, Internet Governance
Country: South Africa
Created: Jan 31, 2014

The exhibition is aimed at creating awareness, especially among the youth, about the journey travelled thus far and the progress made by the government of the day towards reversing the negative legacy of the 1913 Natives Land Act and related racially motivated laws.

The exhibition features a vibrant cast, including actors from the Gauteng province. It covers three broad themes on colonial and apartheid land dispossession; resistance to colonialism and apartheid and the restitution of land rights to victims of forced removals under the democratic government.

Chief Land Claims Commissioner, Nomfundo Gobodo, said the exhibition will be interactive, as it gives the participant an opportunity to experience life before colonisation, during apartheid and life post 1994, where South Africans celebrate Nelson Mandela’s legacy.

She said the exhibition will give people an opportunity to “walk through the history of South Africa and actually feel like you were there”.
