Prime Minister’s Emancipation Message 2016

Emancipation closed the door on a dark period of our country’s history, not to be forgotten, but from which we may learn and chart our future. It shattered an unjust status quo. Emancipation brought a new dynamic to colonial society fuelling upheavals and changes which would later take us along the path to Independence.
