Easter is one of the most important holidays in the Christian calendar as it marks the conquest of death through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. The festivities of Easter brings to a joyous conclusion the period of Lent, when Christians followed the traditions of repentance, self-sacrifice, charity and religious observations as a symbol of Christ's suffering, agony and crucifixion for humanity. Let us therefore be mindful of the true meaning of Easter and not only be thankful and rejoice in what we have but also wish the same blessings to others.

The Easter weekend will also see travelers from the Province as well as outside the Province embarking on long journeys to their respective destinations. The number of road accidents in our country and the resultant injuries and fatalities continue to be matters of grave concern for the Northern Cape Provincial Administration. We therefore call on all road users, including pedestrians, to listen and respond to all the important messages communicated through the Arrive Alive Campaign as well as remembering to be considerate and kind to your fellow road users.

Similarly, we must continue to act in unity to combat crime, and thus further improve the safety and security of our people and the visitors to our Province.

On behalf of the Northern Cape Provincial Government, I want to wish you the hope and joyful blessings that Easter brings. May you all have a peaceful, safe  and blessed Easter.
