Constitution Hill is a space that permits the Constitution of South Africa to be lived, experienced,
debated and defended. It is not a place of passivity, but rather one of active engagement by the public and
public servants alike.
South Africa’s Constitution is recognised as the one of the world’s most progressive constitutions. It is our
nation's most precious asset and belongs to all South Africans. We believe that the Constitution is our
roadmap to the future – a future of equality, mutual respect, dignity and humanity.
With this in mind, Constitution Hill will launch a new campaign in 2017 #wethepeople, a
national campaign that will encourage all South Africans to read, embrace and live the Constitution; to
celebrate the South Africa's achievements; and to confront the challenges that inhibit the country
from reaching its full potential.
We, the People Walk
Annually, thousands of people walk through the Johannesburg city centre in support of Constitution.
Hill’s We, the People Walk. The walk is intended to raise awareness on the rights and values enshrined in the Constitution, and the responsibility of all South Africans to maintain them.
Basha Uhuru is an annual music concert that marks the anniversary of the 1976 Soweto Uprising. In 2016, the event featured an impressive line-up of contemporary South African musicians including Thandiswa Mazwai, BLK JKS, Reason, Stogie T (Tumi Molekane), BCUC, Nonku Phiri, Moonchild. To everyone’s delight, Jean Kitenge beatboxed the Constitution for the crowd.
