Cape Town - On national Freedom Day, President Thabo Mbeki has called for "all hands on deck" to deal with the challenges facing the country.
Addressing Freedom Day celebrations on Sunday at the Turfhall Stadium in Landsdowne, President Mbeki said that everyone needed to engage in "business unusual".
He said everyone must get involved to bring about a new South Africa; people should become that which do not do crime, is not racist, sexist, xenophobic and who works hard to make our country succeed.SADC News]
