CELEBRATE HERITAGE DAY WITH TSL

CELEBRATE HERITAGE DAY WITH TSL

“September 24th is National Heritage Day in South Africa and a chance for us, as a nation, to pause and reflect on a tumultuous history spanning thousands of years of kinship and kingdoms throughout Southern Africa. It is on upon this diverse ancestral story that the foundations of modern-day South Africa have been forged and moulded”

- DAVE VARTY

Heritage day, which is also known as National Braai Day, was not originally intended to be an official South African public holiday. It so happened, that when the Inkatha Freedom Party, a political party with a large Zulu membership, refused to sign the Public Holiday’s Bill that was being presented to the Parliament of South Africa because it omitted the inclusion of Shaka Day, a day that commemorated the famous Zulu King Shaka, a concession was made.

Quite aptly, just as King Shaka was instrumental in uniting Zulu clans into a cohesive nation, Heritage Day (appointed in place of King Shaka Day) encourages South Africans to  come together to celebrate the rich cultural heritage and the diversity of our rainbow nation.

Former South African President Nelson Mandela concisely explained it when he said the following in a Heritage Day speech: 

"When our first democratically-elected government decided to make Heritage Day one of our national days, we did so because we knew that our rich and varied cultural heritage has a profound power to help build our new nation”.

As South Africans, TSL has a rich and diverse cultural group of employees and we wanted to share some fun activities, besides having a braai, with you :) -

Remember that safety comes first and we encourage everyone to always wear a face mask, sanitise their hands regularly and maintain social distancing
