Freedom Day

Freedom Day
Today South Africa celebrates Freedom Day, commemorating our first fully democratic general election, held 13 years ago. I found the photograph displayed in this picture about four months ago, discarded amongst some rubbish bags that I walked past in the upmarket suburb of Camps Bay.

We believe that the photo must have been taken on or around 27 April 1994 and shows ANC supporters celebrating their right to vote, their release into freedom, and the imminent victory of their political party.

The ANC is today still South Africa's ruling party, with Thabo Mbeki, successor to Nelson Mandela, at the country's helm.

If anybody knows who may have taken this photograph, please post a comment so that we can credit them.
