“In the spirit of Africa Day, the South African cabinet encourages South Africans, especially the youth to work together to strengthen their participation in the affairs of our country,” acting cabinet spokesperson Phumla Williams said at a press briefing in Cape Town after a fortnightly cabinet meeting.
The SA government has worked out an exciting program that will take place throughout the month of May and beyond. Activities will include music, literature, theatre, visual arts, film, fashion, cuisines, seminars, exhibitions, lectures and panel discussions.
The theme for this year’s Africa Month is: “We are Africa – Opening the doors of learning and culture to promote peace and friendship from Cape to Cairo”.
May 25 has been designated as Africa Day, an annual commemoration of the 1963 founding of the Organization of African Unity (OAU), now the African Union (AU).
“Africa Month is a platform to promote unity amongst African nations and our fellow African brothers and sisters residing in South Africa. The unity of the continent is driven through the African Union’s programs to attain its vision as articulated in the Agenda 2063,” Williams said.
“The continent, guided by its citizens, will strive for an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa.”
She said the Africa Month theme, “We are Africa”, is a declaration and celebratory statement of pride that fosters inclusivity from all role players and stakeholders.
“It is also a call to action for individuals and groups from all backgrounds and walks of life to join the movement for change. ” Enditem
