Thursday, 18 April 2019 – The Presiding Officers of Parliament wish all South Africans a safe Easter period.
The majority of South Africans Christians and this is a time of reflection and revival by Christians on their convictions on the resurrection of Christ by attending and traveling to different place of worship. It is also period for families and friends from far and near to spend time together.
During this period, high traffic volumes are experienced on the roads mostly leading to fatal accidents. To all those traveling, do exercise caution on the road, remain vigilant at all times, adhere to the rules of the road and be tolerant of fellow road users.
This year, Easter is celebrated at a critical time in the history of South Africa’s maturing constitutional democracy as we are marching gracefully and peacefully as a nation to our 6th national and provincial elections. We encourage and urge all worshipers to stand in prayer with the nation for peaceful elections.
We wish all South Africans safe and peaceful long weekend.
ISSUED BY THE PARLIAMENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA
