South Africans in Ghana observe Human Rights Day 

South Africans in Ghana yesterday, March 21, 2023, gathered at the High Commissioner’s residence in Accra to observe Human Rights Day.

Human Rights Day is a national day that is commemorated annually on March 21, to remind South Africans about the sacrifices that accompanied the struggle for the attainment of democracy in South Africa.

Held under the theme; ‘Consolidating and sustaining human rights culture into the future’, the event saw some Ghanaians join the important day.

Speaking at the event, Her Excellency Grace Jeanet Mason, South Africa’s High Commissioner to Ghana, said Africans are one people with a common destiny and vision.

“But for me, and what were are here to do is to promote Pan-Africanism at the apex of our agenda,” she noted.

She added that African cultures are so inextricably linked to languages and cuisines among others, and urged South Africans who find themselves in other countries not to forget about where they come from.

“We are a very resilient nation, together, we can overcome anything,” Excellency Grace Jeanet Mason said.

According to her, she has made a lot of South African friends in the past two years in Ghana and also promoted a good relationship with Ghanaians.

She commended the supportive role of promoting and telling the South African story by the media over the years.

On his part, Counsellor in charge of Political Affairs, Thando Dalamba, said the South African government promotes and protects Human Rights,” Today we observe the Sharpeville and Langa Massacre which happened on the same day in 1960.”

He added that the day honours those who fought for liberation and celebrates the many laws in their constitution which guarantee Human Rights.

Officers from Brand South Africa also took the gathering through some investment and other opportunities in South Africa.

The event powered by Brandflow Ghana, an integrated Marketing Communications company specialising in Event Management, saw some Ghanaian businessmen and creative industry stakeholders in attendance.
