CASAC has joined other South Africans in celebrating the 20-year anniversary of the South African Constitution, which was signed into law by President Nelson Mandela at a ceremony in Sharpeville on 10 December 1996.

In a statement, Sipho Pityana, chairperson of CASAC, said South Africa should be very proud of its Constitution and its achievements, as it had provided the institutional infrastructure to advance South Africa’s democracy and curb the tendency towards the abuse of power and corruption, while giving ordinary people rights that had changed their lives for the better.
