Human Rights Day


The 21st of March which is known as Human Rights Day, on this day all South African commemorates the fallen heroes of the Sharpville Massacre. On this day we honor and remember all those who died for standing up against the unjust “Pass Laws” of the brutal apartheid system.

This year we celebrate the centenary of the birth of Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela, we shall intensify our efforts to realize his vision of a united South Africa in which all live in peace with equal rights and opportunities.

We shall renew our focus on Mandela’s vision of non-racial society in which the social and economic barriers that have separated black from white are torn down.

We must work to fulfill Madiba’s vision of a democratic society in which all citizens have equal opportunity to determine their own destiny. We must rally all Newcastle communities behind this vision as we continue to unite our people.

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.  The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.” by Nelson Mandela

    To Newcastle Municipality, is there any means that as the location residents to have health inspectors in our townships?

    The reason is, these shops in our areas cell expired food to the community, because they know that no one will come visit their shops and check fridges as well.

    There is one shop at Osizweni where I found an expired Coca Cola, it was expired in January 2018 but it was still in a fridge to be sold, this is a very old case that we don’t have health inspectors in our townships.

    Please help the community.
