Justice and Correctional Services Minister, Mr Ronald Lamola, will host a webinar to mark the 25th anniversary of the Constitution on the 30th of July 2021 at 10:00 am virtually on Zoom and YouTube, to be observed under the theme: “Deepening Constitutionalism, Respect for Rule of Law and the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights.”
This year marks 25th Anniversary of the adoption of the South African Constitution which reconfigured our nation, from a nation tarnished by colonialism, racial conquest, suppression of human rights and racial supremacy to one which strives non-racialism, non-sexism, and unity in our diversity.
The webinar will afford South Africans from all walks of life a valuable opportunity to engage in a dialogue on how the constitution can be a promoter to address deeply embedded socioeconomic inequalities and address intolerances that manifest them in society. It further presents an opportunity for participants to reflect and discuss on how South Africans can further strengthen their hard-fought democracy while ensuring the human rights they enjoy are protected and balanced.
The Minister will be joined by South Africa’s thought leaders such as retired Justice of the Constitutional Court, former Public Protector, Professor Thuli Madonsela, Former CEO of Business Leadership South Africa, Professor Bonang Mohale, Founder and CEO of the A-political academy Ms. Lindiwe Mazibuko as well as CEO of the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Mr. Sello Hatang.
