21 March is Human Rights Day in South Africa, when the country remembers the day in 1960 when anti-apartheid demonstrators in Sharpeville near Johannesburg were gunned down by police. The national heritage institution Iziko is marking the event by offering free entry to some of the museums and sites on its Cape Town circuit for the day.

Visitors to the Iziko Slave Lodge can see the groundbreaking exhibition Mandela - Leader, Comrade, Negotiator, Prisoner, Statesman on the life and legacy of the anti-apartheid activist and South Africa
