Let’s now all walk forward together
The sight of millions of South Africans standing in long queues to vote in the nation’s fifth national and provincial elections will live long in our memories. Wherever citizens voted throughout the country they would have noticed the enthusiastic and smiling faces of young people, many of whom cast their vote for the very first time.
The SA Government News Agency is a news service, published by the Government Communication and Information System (GCIS). The people of South Africa have a right to information, irrespective of their class, colour or creed. The Government has a mandate to ensure that its entire people have access to information. In order to make this possible, SAnews.gov.za was established to provide quick and easy access to articles and feature stories aimed at keeping the public informed about the implementation of government's mandate.
An achievement of note for SAnews.gov.za was the clinching of a National Productivity Institute (NPI) Merit Award, in 2000, in recognition of the work it has done in disadvantaged communities.
