14 March 2019

H.E. Ms. Cecilia Julin, Ambassador to Sweden in South Africa has on 28 February 2019 at her official residence, decorated H.E. Ms. Lindiwe Mabuza with the Royal Order of the Polar Star for her services to Sweden. 

This occasion was also attended by former President H.E. Mr. Thabo Mbeki and Mrs. Zanele Mbeki as well as former Speaker of Parliament, Mr. Max Sisulu and Mrs. Elinor Sisulu.

Lindiwe Mabuza was decorated with the Royal Order of the Polar Star with the rank of Commander for her services as ANC representative in Sweden in the 1970’s and 80’s.

She played an important role in raising awareness among the Swedes about the injustice of apartheid and mounted support for the struggle. She has continued to be a fantastic ambassador for the warm friendship between South Africa and Sweden.
