Reece Van Belkum, KTL’s Design Dependency manager spoke to us about South Africa Freedom Day – 27th April.

South Africa Freedom Day is a national holiday where people commemorate the first post-apartheid election that took place in 1994.

This day symbolises breaking the era of apartheid (apartheid is a word from the Afrikaans language which means “apartness” – it was a policy or system of segregation or discrimination on grounds of race).

Reece shared with us three things about South Africa most people wouldn’t know.

South Africa boasts some of the best beaches in the world. Along the east coast of South Africa water temperatures in Summer range from 22-27° C.

The floral diversity on Table Mountain (Cape town, South Africa) is part of the Cape Floral Kingdom Heritage site which is home to approximately 8200 plant species.

The most loved tea in South Africa is Rooibos tea (Rooibos is an Afrikaans word which translates to Red bush) it is naturally caffeine-free and is only grown in Cederberg, Western Cape.
