HAPPY MAY DAY
Blog Posted:5/1/2013 2:03:00 AM

 




Following the first democratic elections in South Africa in 1994, 1 May was inaugurated as an official national public holiday. Known as International Workers’ Day (also as May Day), the holiday is widely celebrated, with as many as 80 countries honouring the date and what it stands for. HAPPY WORKERS DAY!!


The historical vote of April 1994, when South Africa became a democratically elected government which changed the face of Africa:


APRIL 1994


To right a wrong of ages past
A nation writhe in pain
A cross is what it now would take
So much for all to gain

Some errors couldn’t be atone'
Abuse will reap its toll
“Abolish” we had strove to meet
A mark on voters’ roll

All business came to halt for days
A joyous spirit found
Some busses rolling into town
Big smiles were all round

In queues we stood in pouring rain
A hopeful crowd at best
Awaiting turns at poll to vote
Most eager like the rest
