President Zuma sends good wishes for Diwali
President Jacob Zuma has extended good wishes to Hindu, Tamil, Gujerati and other communities who celebrate Diwali or Deepavali.
"May the divine light shower you with peace, prosperity, happiness, success and fulfilment as you celebrate this annual occasion," said President Zuma on Saturday evening.
Diwali honours the triumph of light over darkness, of good over evil, of knowledge and wisdom over ignorance and thoughtlessness.
On this holy day, devotees around the country and across the world light lamps that symbolise the victory of light over darkness.
The President urged devotees to recommit to making South Africa a better place for all.
