By The Presidency of the Republic of South Africa
President Cyril Ramaphosa will tomorrow, 25 May 2023, deliver the keynote address at the national Africa Day celebrations at the Cradle of Humankind in Gauteng.
Africa Day commemorates the establishment of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) 60 years ago, and its transformation 20 years ago into the African Union.
This years’ Africa Month programme is celebrated under the theme: “Deepening the AU Vision for Unity for Africa through Prosperity, Peace and Modernity for a Better Africa and a Better World.”
The day focuses the nation’s attention on the development of our continent, regional integration, the opportunities offered by the African Continental Free Trade Agreement, and the human, cultural and natural treasures of Africa.
Africa Day seeks to promote the African Agenda and strengthen the African Union institutions and policies towards the realisation of the continental blueprint, Agenda 2063.
Africa Day also places a spotlight on regional integration through people-to-people contact and the harmonisation of skills and expertise to create capacity in all sectors in all countries.
