Dam levels have been recovering significantly. Good news for citizens and tourists.

Both city and provincial dam levels reached a four-year high in August, following the region’s worst drought in 100 years, which hit the agriculture, tourism and property sectors particularly badly.

Woman’s Day in South Africa

Date posted: August 6, 2019 | Author: Denis Stupan

We are celebrating Women’s Day, a public holiday, on 9 August. Have you ever wondered why?

On this day in 1956, over 20 000 women of all races and ages from every corner of South Africa marched together towards the Union Buildings in Pretoria. These brave women were marching in protest against the pass laws that proposed even further restrictions on the movements of women.

Organised by the Federation of South African Women, the March was led by four brave women: Helen Joseph, Rahima Moosa, Sophie Williams and Lilian Ngoyi. The leaders delivered petitions to Prime Minister JG Strijdom’s office within the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

The march was a resounding success and South Africa recognises the bravery of these women who risked arrest, detention and banning by declaring 9 August National Women’s Day.

Was ist eigentlich der Mandela Day am 18 Juli eines Jahres? Der Gedenktag wird seit 2010 jährlich begangen, dem Geburtstag des südafrikanischen Friedensnobelpreisträgers Nelson Mandela (1918–2013).

Seinen Geburtstag, den 18. Juli, erklärte die UN-Generalversammlung im November 2009 zum internationalen Nelson-Mandela-Tag. Damit würdigt sie seinen jahrzehntelangen Einsatz für eine Kultur des Friedens und der Freiheit. Der Welttag zu Ehren des ehemaligen Präsidenten Südafrikas und Friedensnobelpreisträgers wurde 2010 zum ersten Mal gefeiert.

Nelson Mandela arbeitete 67 Jahre an seinen Zielen und er setzte sich für seine Mitmenschen ein.  Und genau wie Nelson Mandela seine 67 Lebensjahre für ein humanes, gerechtes und freies Südafrika geopfert hat, sollen Menschen auf der ganzen Welt an diesem Tag symbolisch 67 Minuten lang etwas Gutes tun.
