Premier cautions citizens not to abuse their rights

By Maanda Mulaudzi

Premier Chupu Mathabatha told people of Limpopo to remember that in their exercise for human rights, they should also respect the rights of others. He said this during the Human Rights Day Provincial Celebration which was held at Thabazimbi, Northam Sports Ground on 22 March 2015.

In his speech delivered by MEC Makoma Makhurupetje, Premier Mathabatha warn people of Limpopo that when they need houses they should not burn schools and when they need roads they should not burn clinics and other government buildings. He said by doing so they are interfering and violating the human rights of others who want to receive services from government.

The South African Democratic Government declared March 21 as Human Rights Day so as to commemorate and honour those who fought for our liberation and the rights we are enjoying today. The day is regarded as an important day for all South Africans.
