Human Rights Day – 21 March 2017 celebrations

We are celebrating early – because we love a good reason to party.

wpid-532c334b116a04.57543892Human Rights Day (21 March) was officially declared a public holiday in 1994 following the inauguration of former president Nelson Mandela. This national day-off is both a stark reminder of the tragic Sharpeville massacre and a celebration of South Africa’s unique constitution, which gives equal rights to all.

And this is why we are celebrating, that we can be a diverse and interesting nation with equal rights to all.

This year, Chef Alicia proclaimed to bake a cake and let everyone on campus share in this wonderful event and gesture of “ubuntu”.

Ubuntu is a Nguni Bantu term meaning “humanity”. It is often also translated as “humanity towards others”, but is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean “the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity”.
