Arts and Culture Minister Nathi Mthethwa who is part of president Jacob Zuma's delegation says South Africans should celebrate and honour Steve  Biko, for his contribution to the struggle for liberation.

Mthethwa says the nation has to know about the sacrifices made during the struggle for democracy.

“It was very significant for us to commemorate in remembering Steve Biko, how he died, the gross violation of human rights has to be highlighted.  In Sharpville they are commemorating this fateful day where people were killed unarmed by the apartheid state. So therefore we should not forget where we come from as we map the way forward, it's important that we keep our eye in the ball in moving the society forward.”
