South Africa: Freedom Day

Lavina Live comments on “Freedom Day” in South Africa which is a holiday….”Our freedom was indeed not free. I remembered that, the first time I went to vote in the national elections in 2004. I remember it each time a political figure is busted for corruption. I remember it each time I go to my comfortable suburban home in an area black people were not allowed to live less than 2 decades ago”
