South African Minister of Home Affairs and President of the Inkatha Freedom Party, Mangosuthu Buthelezi, has announced that he had been mandated by the South African Cabinet to chair an inter-departmental task team to review the South African official public holidays calendar.

The departments identified to form the task team are Labour, Finance, Education and Environmental Affairs and Tourism.

It was not clear, from the aforementioned statement, if the declaration of election day dates as non-working public holidays (2000-11-23 and 1999-04-28) would be part of the review.
