Africa Day is commemorated across the continent on Thursday.

South Africa is the only country where it’s not a public holiday.

However, some political parties like the PAC are pushing for it to become one.

Africa Day celebrates the formation of the Organisation of African union (OAU), established on this day in 1963.

The OAU was formed on May 25, 1963.

It was replaced by the African Union in 2002. The continental body, now called the African Union, was created to promote unity in Africa.

President Jacob Zuma will Thursday morning host Africa Day celebrations in Pretoria.
