Within the Week of South Africa, let us tell you about Mac Maharaj, Freedom Fighter, Political Prisoner, Cabinet Minister, Stalwart of South Africa. who will deliver his speech during celebration of Freedom Day that will be held on April 26 at M.Narikbayev KAZGUU University.
Mac Maharaj is one of the most well-known heroes of the South-African struggle for freedom. Veteran agitator and formidable organiser, he forms part of «the Collective» which had to build the structure and institutions of a Democratic government following the first free, non-racial elections in 1994. As a member of Cabinet under President Mandela he was one of the architects responsible for developing a country founded on the principles of equality, non-racism, gender equality and justice supported by robust and engaged civil society organisations; based on a progressive Constitution as the Supreme Law of the land protected by an independent and strong judiciary shielded by the Constitutional Court to which all are subject regardless of status and position. It is an extraordinary story of a long journey and well worth celebrating.
