In Ambassador Queen Anne Zondo’s speech she condemned the recent attacks on foreign nationals on SA soil, emphasizing that the Government is doing its utmost to sort out the dire situation.   

Ambassador Zondo also reaffirmed the strong and close-knitted relationship between South Africa and Norway, both on a bilateral and personal level, as well as acknowledging the outstanding Norwegian support in conjunction with South Africa´s liberation struggle.

Since Freedom Day attracts an influential and multifaceted audience, the Embassy utilized the event to reflect the beauty of South Africa and its people, through the universal language of music. This was manifested through musical entertainment by an orchestra from Toneheim music school where South African exchange students are enrolled, to the great delight of the applauding audience.

Thereafter the guests enjoyed a delicious braai accompanied by South African wine and for dessert; a stunning SA-flag cake.
