MultiChoice Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of the South African Constitution

MultiChoice has announced a partnership with Constitutional Hill Trust to celebrate the 25th anniversary of signing of South Africa’s constitution.

MultiChoice has partnered with the Constitutional Hill Trust to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the signing of South Africa’s Constitution and support a campaign to encourage South Africans to live its values.

The anniversary will be celebrated through a series of events that will run until the end of 2022 and form part of the We, The People Movement – which encourages all South Africans to read, embrace and live the Constitution; to celebrate South Africa’s achievements; and to confront the challenges that inhibit the country from reaching its full potential.

Scheduled events include an open round table with President Cyril Ramaphosa, and Mrs Graca Machel who will reflect on her husband, Nelson Mandela, a multimedia sound and light show incorporating live and pre-recorded feeds and live performances.

MultiChoice will broadcast the series of live events taking place at Constitution Hill from 9 December on Channel O, DStv channel 320. Over 100 activists, influencers and media are expected to attend.

An exclusive special episode of  Channel O’s popular programme Freestyle Fridays titled ‘We The People’ will air on 10 December, and will be hosted by SA Hip Hop Awards’ 2020 Lyricist of the year, Stogie T.

Free Style Fridays is a rap battle between local rappers and hip hop creatives and this exclusive episode will take the form of Freestyle Friday meets Tiny Desk Concert, supported by a live band – all against the backdrop of Flame Studios and Constitutional Hill.

“We are honoured to be the partner of choice to broadcast this historic event to South Africans. Our Constitution remains one of the most progressive and all-inclusive in the world and is a reminder of what we as a country sacrificed, what we believe in, and what we have achieved.”

Collen Dlamini, Group Executive of Corporate Affairs, MultiChoice

Former Constitutional Court judge, Justice Albie Sachs, and Constitutional Lawyer Lwando Xaso will be interviewed on the show. Justice Sachs was appointed by Nelson Mandela to serve on the first Constitutional Court. The show will also feature upcoming rappers and celebrity guests who will give their perspective on what the Constitution means to them.

Through a series of partnerships, programmes and products, the aim of the events is to wake the nation into becoming active participants in moving South Africa forward with the country’s Constitution as a compass.
