On behalf of my family and the Party I lead, the IFP, I wish to extend our heartfelt messages of goodwill to everyone celebrating Christmas.
I wish all South Africans the peace and joy that should accompany Christmas.
Christmas is a time when we gather with family, friends and loved ones. It is a time for giving. In the true spirit of Christmas, let us reflect on our service to others, by helping those in need, giving hope and spreading peace. Service to others means nothing less than selflessness and sacrifice. It is my hope that these timeless values will guide us this Christmas and inspire us to lead lives of compassion.
I pray that we may be filled with hope and inspiration this Christmas that extends beyond today. May 2013 be a prosperous year for every South African and our nation as a whole.
