This year’s National Human Rights Month Celebration coincides with the centenary of Mandela and Sisulu.

“Despite the efforts of our government and the people of our country to consign poverty and white privilege to history, the resilient fault lines of poverty, unemployment and inequality stubbornly persist. 

“The Human Rights Commission 2016 report attest to this and situates it within socio-historical divisions of the past, with resultant income inequalities principally along the contours of race and gender,” Minister Mthethwa said.

He said government will work to rekindle the vision of a democratic society in which all citizens have equal opportunity to determine their own destiny.

“Therefore our efforts at fundamental change represent a social experiment which resonates with humanity’s progressive endeavours. As in the past when it touched the conscience of humanity, South Africa is a giant social laboratory, the success or failure of whose undertakings has global implications,” Minister Mthethwa said.

He said the realisation of the Constitutional injunctions is the task of every citizen and various sectors of our society across the board.
