Tourism celebrates Human Rights Day and unveils new features at the Cradock 4 Garden of Remembrance
In celebration of 25 years of democracy, and to commemorate the contribution of the Cradock Four anti-apartheid activists in the establishment of a democratic South Africa, Tourism Minister Derek Hanekom will hand over facilities built by the Department to enhance the Cradock 4 Garden of Remembrance in the Eastern Cape Province. 

The Cradock 4 Garden of Remembrance embraces the historic memoirs of anti-apartheid activists Matthew Goniwe, Sicelo Mhlawuli, Sparrow Mkhonto, and Fort Calata. Tourism’s infrastructure improvements at the site will enable the community to host educational and cultural activities that facilitate information sharing, and celebrate the legacy of the four activists. 

The Department’s Working for Tourism Programme promotes the growth of tourism products at rural node through infrastructure development. The constructed and renovated products enhance visitor experience, and highlight the diverse offerings on our heritage and liberation tourism routes.   

The historic launch will culminate with a Community Imbizo attended by the Minister of Tourism, MEC of Economic Development, Environmental Affairs and Tourism, and the mayors from the Chris Hani District Municipality and Inxuba Yethemba Local Municipality.  The Imbizo will afford the community an opportunity to engage with government officials on tourism opportunities, and the broader socio economic issues in the district.
