President Cyril Ramaphosa wishes all Hindus a joyous and safe Deepavali.
Diwali will be celebrated on one day, tomorrow, Sunday 27 October 2019.
President Ramaphosa says: South Africa’s cultural and religious diversity is derived from the broad spectrum of beliefs and practices that constitute and enrich our national identity.
It is my wish that the religious observances and celebrations associated with the Festival of Light will bring families and communities together and that this spirit of togetherness and sharing will radiate throughout the nation in the coming year. Happy Deepavali.
