Majuba TVET College came out in full support of Human Rights Day celebrated on the 21st of March every year on the South African calendar.
Staff members from the institute showed their commitment in the promotion of human rights in the country by holding placards with various messages on human rights.
Human Rights Day in South Africa is historically linked with 21 March 1960, and the events of Sharpeville.
Mr. Sanele Mlotshwa, Principal of Majuba TVET College, stated that, “It became an iconic date in our country’s history that today we commemorate Human Rights Day as a reminder of our rights and the cost paid for our treasured human rights. We at Majuba TVET College fully believe that Human rights are rights that everyone should have simply because they are human. Know, respect, protect and claim your rights.”
Human Rights Day is also a day to celebrate the national Constitution Bill of Rights which clearly outlines that everyone has a right to life, equality and human dignity.
