Gauteng Acting Premier Panyaza Lesufi says the Gauteng government is committed to ensuring that all people get services.

Speaking at the Human Rights Day celebrations at the Sharpville George Thabe Stadium, Lesufi says the provincial government is working to ensure that residents have access to basic services including water and electricity.

Crowds have gathered at the stadium to honour the 69 people who died during an anti-pass law in 1969.

Lesufi says the government is also working to ensure that people also have access to land.

Speaking at the same event Pan Africanist Congress leader Narius Moloto has called for unity.

He says the day is a reminder for South Africans to come together and unite is solving problems confronting the country.

Restoration and redistribution of land, according to Moloto should remain high on government’s agenda.

“Without economic freedom, we are not free. Our people need land so that they can begin to plough,” adds Moloto.
