JOHANNESBURG - National Assembly Speaker Baleka Mbete has urged South Africans not to be complacent to racism and economic exclusion.

Mbete was speaking at the South African Human Rights Commission’s 20-year anniversary and national conference on racism at Gallagher Estate in Midrand.

The two-day conference is aimed at addressing the impact of racism in the country and how far the commission has come in promoting equal rights.

The national assembly speaker says while South Africans shouldn’t fuel the flames of the past, citizens must all confront the challenges that face the country.

Mbete says the landscape of opportunities still reflect the contours of apartheid.

She adds that South Africa’s history is evidence that this country can fight anything including racism to build a united and inclusive society.
