Berlin Mission Hosts Successful Freedom Day Celebration - 25 Years of Democracy

The Embassy of the Republic of South Africa in Berlin, Germany, hosted its National Day event on 26 April 2019, to commemorate and celebrate South Africa’s 25th Freedom Day. On 27 April 1994, South Africans of all "races", genders and creed went to the polls to participate in the country’s first democratic and free elections, to elect the first democratically elected black president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela.

This year’s Freedom Day celebrations were dedicated to the celebration of South Africa’s 25th Year of Democracy.

The Ambassador of the Republic of South Arica, H.E. Ambassador PS Sizani was honoured to host Ambassador Robert Dölger of the Federal Foreign Office, as the guest of honour representing the German Government.

Ambassador Sizani reflected on the role and contribution of South Africa’s foreign policy, particularly since both South Africa and Germany are concurrently serving tenures on the United Nations Security Council. Ambassador Sizani further elaborated on the excellent state of bilateral cooperation, South Africa and Germany share across varied fields. Ambassador Dölger conveyed the congratulations and well wishes on behalf of the German Government and people to the South African Government and people on the celebrations of South Africa’s 25th Freedom Day.

The Embassy’s National Day event showcased South African cuisine and entertainment. Special performances were rendered by the choir of the Nelson Mandela School in Berlin and South African Maskandi musicians Qadasi and Maqhinga.

The Embassy’s partners and German companies which have a business presence in South Africa were invited to showcase products manufactured in South Africa. Afrika Verein, BMW, CapeSpan, Mellon Educate, Mercedes Benz, Standard Bank and Volkswagen were amongst the exhibitors.
