Speaking during the 2023 National Freedom Day celebrations at Manzil Park Stadium in Klerksdorp, North West Province, Ramaphosa emphasized the importance of exercising one’s civic duty and taking responsibility for the future of the country.

The president’s comments come as the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) designated the weekend of November 18th and 19th, 2023 for voter registration, in preparation for the national elections.

“As citizens, especially as young South Africans, let us all go and register to go and vote next year so that we take responsibility for the future of our country,” said Ramaphosa. “We must exercise our civic duty to ensure that there is no place for those who want to steal, plunder and loot.”

The upcoming elections will be a crucial moment for South Africa as citizens choose their leaders and decide on the future direction of the country. Ramaphosa’s call for reducing corruption and looting will likely resonate with many voters who are eager to see a more transparent and accountable government.
