Dialogue on bridging the gap, crossing the divide: Steps towards a post-Apartheid heritage

The National Liberation Heritage Institute of South Africa (Nalhisa) hosted the "Dialogue on bridging the gap, crossing the divide: Steps towards a post-Apartheid heritage", to which a number of speakers, including former President Kgalema Motlanthe, were invited to speak at Freedom Park, Pretoria, on 10 May 2023. The CEO of the Inclusive Society Institute, Mr. Daryl Swanepoel, also spoke.


In his speech titled ‘Preserving South Africa’s liberation history is important for nation-building’, Mr. Swanepoel pointed out the importance of keeping the inclusive story of South Africa’s transition to democracy alive, in order to inspire citizens towards an inclusive and socially just, cohesive future. He also bemoaned the diversion away from the Mandela era of reconciliation and called for today’s leaders to re-prioritise reconciliation and nation-building.
