Happy heritage day to the rainbow nation
a day that encourages cultural diversity. a day of unique upbringing within various tribes.
heritage day is set to celebrate cultural wealth within south africa, which the first elected democratic government of the country found imperative.
as a country with eleven official languages and plenty of other diverse cultures, this day is made memorable through social events.
the originality of this day was not meant to become a public holiday, the day was remarked as shaka day, in honour of the zulu king shaka zulu.
the inkatha freedom party (ifp) contested this day to be a public holiday, through negotiations a compromise was reached.
the title of this day was changed to what we know it as and became a public holiday.
