Pretoria - This year's national Freedom Day celebrations will be held at the Union Buildings, Cabinet announced on Thursday.

Briefing the media following Cabinet's meeting, government spokesperson Themba Maseko said the day will give South Africans the chance to reflect on the path to building a united, non-racial, non-sexist country.

This year's theme will be 'Together deepening our democracy and celebrating our Freedom'.

"The thousands of South Africans who made the ultimate sacrifice of their lives to ensure freedom for all will be remembered and honoured," said Maseko.

He said it will be a day to remember that nation building requires every South African, young and old, to recognise and live by the principles enshrined in the Constitution.

As part of the celebrations, President Jacob Zuma will confer National Orders on both international and South African citizens who have distinguished themselves by contributing to democracy and freedom in South Africa and the world.

Accomplished musician Hugh Masekela will be among those bestowed with orders and so will FIFA President Sepp Blatter and Angolan President Eduardo dos Santos. Blatter however will not be able to make it to the ceremony.
