South Africa Freedom Day, which is celebrated on April 27th every year, commemorates the day in 1994 when South Africa held its first democratic election.


This was a historic moment in South Africa's history as it marked the end of apartheid, a system of racial segregation that had been in place for over 40 years.


The South Africa Freedom Day celebration held in Jakarta, Indonesia, was a reminder of the importance of freedom and the need for countries to work together towards a world where these values are upheld for all. The event was attended by a diverse group of people, including ambassadors, embassy staff, and businesspeople.


During his speech, the Ambassador of the Republic of South Africa to Indonesia, H.E. Mr. Mpetjane Lekgoro, emphasized the strong relationship between Indonesia and South Africa and the need for both countries to continue working together to promote mutual understanding and friendship. 


This sentiment was echoed by Sandiaga Uno, the Minister of Tourism and Creative Economy of the Republic of Indonesia, who recognized the sacrifices made by the people of South Africa and applauded the progress made since the end of apartheid.


The celebration was a reminder of the power of unity and the importance of working towards a world where everyone has the opportunity to live a life of freedom and equality. 


As we look towards the future, let us remember the spirit of Freedom Day and continue to work together towards a brighter future for all.
