Celebrating 20 years of our constitution


This year’s marks the 20th anniversary of the South African Constitution!

The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. No other law or government action can supersede the provisions of the Constitution.

Our Constitution is one of the most progressive in the world and enjoys high acclaim internationally.

This year the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development (DoJ&CD) will lead South Africans in celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Constitution.

As part of the 20 Years of the Constitution celebration, let us continue to mobilise all government departments, stakeholders and members of society, including Faith Based Organisations (FBOs), Media Houses, Private Sector and Civil Society Organisations, to join hands with government in highlighting the celebration.
