Written by: Eyewitness News

JOHANNESBURG - President Cyril Ramaphosa is delivering a virtual Freedom Day message as South Africa is under lockdown.

However, Freedom day 2020 as South Africans know it, is very much different than other years. The year 2020 shepherded in with the COVID-19 challenge, a worldwide pandemic; this has in a great part changed and transformed things differently than what it is known to be or differently to the norm.
